Chapter 78:

The Wounds Of A Princess

Wolf Bloodline

-19 Years Ago-Bookmark here

In the great corridors of our palace, with my blanket tied on my back as if I had a cape, I ran around non-stop. And in my right hand was a wooden sword that I swung around. At a time when I needed something to play with, my father carved it for me. I was usually waving it around, trying to make moves like a knight.Bookmark here

I stood in front of a knight's armor against the wall and said,Bookmark here

"I challenge you, Warrior! Come and fight me!"Bookmark here

By talking like that around, I was attacking the armor with no one in it. I repeated this for a short time until the castle maid found me. One day, when she found me, she quickly approached me and said,Bookmark here

“Princess Mila! So here you are, I've been looking all over the castle for you!"Bookmark here

Despite what the castle maid said, I still continued to attack the armor with my wooden sword. The maid grabbed me by the arm and said,Bookmark here

"We must go, Princess Mila, We have many more jobs to finish! You also need to take a shower."Bookmark here

I looked at her with a sad expression and said,Bookmark here

"But I wanted to play a little more."Bookmark here

"Unfortunately, we don't have much time. Besides, I thought I left you to play with your other friends. Where were you all this time?"Bookmark here

Then I said with an angry expression,Bookmark here

"Only the boys could fight, and the girls were sitting, so I got so bored and left."Bookmark here

Then I looked down with a sad expression and said,Bookmark here

"I didn't mean to worry anyone, I'm sorry."Bookmark here

The maid smiled at me and said,Bookmark here

"Princess Mila, trust me, I'm not mad at you, and I don't think there's anyone who can be mad at you, but please let me know next time, okay? Especially in these difficult days, it can be quite dangerous out there."Bookmark here

"All right, Margarita-San."Bookmark here

"Now that we've agreed, let's go into the room and get you ready for dinner, Okay?"Bookmark here

"Yes, but Margarita, why is today's dinner so important? Everyone is talking about it, but no one is telling me."Bookmark here

"If I had to explain this to you shortly, your father's friends and many important people we know will be sitting at the same table as you tonight."Bookmark here

"So why did everyone come today? Is something gonna happen?"Bookmark here

After I said that, Margarita started to avoid eye contact with me, and said,Bookmark here

"Well, unfortunately, I don't know that either, but you can ask your father yourself in the evening."Bookmark here

I could easily understand that Margarita was lying, but I didn't make her talk too much so as not to drag her into a problem.Bookmark here

I said,Bookmark here

"Well, then I'll talk to him later."Bookmark here

Later, Margarita and I went to my room. As soon as we got in, we started preparing for the evening. We finished my preparation in a short time without taking too much time. I got ready so fast that dinner was only half an hour away.Bookmark here

At that time, I thought I could find out why people were gathering so I decided to make a move. The interior of the castle was quite safe, and as the inside, the outside of the castle was full of soldiers. Because I was with Margarita, it would be very difficult for me to find out the answer to the question. So I had to distract Margarita.

By quickly turning my head to him in a fussy way,Bookmark here

“Now I remember! My mother was looking for you, Margarita!"Bookmark here

"Princess Mila, you're not playing little games with me, are you?"Bookmark here

"No, I'm not playing! You have to believe me!"Bookmark here

She then looked deep into my eyes and said,Bookmark here

"Then you can tell me why she called me?"Bookmark here

"When I asked what was going on here, she told me not to worry. Then she asked if I'd seen you. I said I'd tell her if I saw you. Then I heard her talking about the documents about the visitors when she was walking away. "Bookmark here

Margarita suddenly got so anxious and said to me while hurrying to go away,Bookmark here

"Then I am going to talk to the Queen. You sit here quietly, Okay?Bookmark here

I smiled and said,Bookmark here

"Okay!"Bookmark here

Margarita left the room quickly, so I used that as an advantage and left the room immediately after her, without wasting any time. All I had to do was find my Father, and it wasn't hard to find my Father, because he spent most of his day working in his room. He spent almost all day there, so it was the first place I could go.Bookmark here

As I walked into his room, a man passed me. I couldn't see his face because he covered his body with a black hood, but he looked like a mysterious person. As I walked past him, I was filled with chills. I thought he was invited to dinner, so I left him without saying anything. But it was like he was watching me behind my back the whole way.Bookmark here

When I turned around and looked back, he was gone. I was quite surprised, but could what I saw be an imagination? I didn't know either.

At that very moment, I heard my father's voice just as I was going to dive into these thoughts. Then I realized I was next to his room. I leaned my ear against the door and began to listen clearly to my father's speech. My father was talking out loud, and he said,Bookmark here

"I'll be honest, Yores' army is getting stronger and approaching us. If we don't make tomorrow's war a success, we will suffer great losses."Bookmark here

A voice I didn't know started talking and said,Bookmark here

"We don't want this to happen too, but it's too risky to go to war with Yores'sArmy. Especially in these times....."Bookmark here

Another voice I didn't know started talking and said,Bookmark here

"Yes, unfortunately, he's right. The people in Yores's Army grew and grew stronger. And that's not the only problem. He no longer takes only humans into his army but also takes in creatures and monsters. If he attacks with all of his armies, then the war will be over before it starts."Bookmark here

A third voice that I didn't realize said,Bookmark here

“What if we asked the other princes for help?"Bookmark here

"Other princes can't handle their brother Yores. They're not strong enough.Bookmark here

“What about Alpha Prime? He can help us."Bookmark here

My Father started talking again and said,Bookmark here

“He can't. We don't know where he is, and since he's the only one who can beat Yores, Yores has his eye on him. If we call him here, we'll lose more people along the way."Bookmark here

As I continued to listen to my father's talking, suddenly someone grabbed me behind my back.Bookmark here
