EPILOGUE: A LETTER FROM HOME

The Human Saint is Bored, so I was Summoned to Another World Vol. 2


For Princess Lilyhaven Tamriel von Leese, her friend’s ‘almost’ engagement to that man from the other world, Kuro, was a reason to be happy…Bookmark here

“…”Bookmark here

Yes, she should be happy and be supportive of her friend’s happiness…Bookmark here

“…”Bookmark here

Damn it! Why do her eyes keep on tearing up? And it won’t stop, no matter how hard she wipes it!Bookmark here

“…”Bookmark here

She should be happy because that man…that good person had become Maddie’s future partner…Bookmark here

And it hurts…it hurts so much she wants to scream…Bookmark here

“…”Bookmark here

But Lily knew better. She needed not to be swayed by her feelings, for she’s the Saint’s friend. And she loved Maddie just like a sister…Bookmark here

Still, it’s painful…Bookmark here

“…Lily?”Bookmark here

“!!!”Bookmark here

Princess Lilyhaven quickly turned around when she heard her name. However, her hopes were dashed when, instead of that boy from another world, a member of the Paladin Corps appeared.Bookmark here

“Head Maid Lily? Are you okay?” the paladin asked, “I’ve been calling for you, but you won’t hear me.”Bookmark here

“My apologies, Lady Renier, I was just thinking of something…”Bookmark here

“I see…” then the paladin reached for something in her pocket, “By the way, a messenger from the Royal Fief of Nerfes gave me this. He told me it is for your eyes only.”Bookmark here

“Oh…” Princess Lily had a mixed expression on her face when she was handed the letter from the Royal Fief of Nerfes. The melted-wax seal was the proof that it was the real thing; after all, no one could forge nor copy the coat-of-arms of the von Leese Royal Family of Nerfes…no matter how hard someone tries.Bookmark here

“Well then, I shall take my leave, Head Maid.” the paladin then went on her way.Bookmark here

Princess Lilyhaven had her reservations about opening the letter. But after some few moments of hesitation, she decided it would be useless to let it idle for long; she’ll eventually read it in the future…Bookmark here

So why not now?Bookmark here

Carefully tearing off the seal, Lily chanted a spell that made the incantation embedded on the paper to disappear. All the letters coming from the members of the von Leese Royal Family were written this way; whether it was a matter concerning national security, or of their private lives.Bookmark here

Lily began reading the contents of the paper she held in her hand.Bookmark here

Dear Princess Lilyhaven…Bookmark here

We know that you’ve just come back to our kingdom as part of the entourage of Her Holiness, the Great Saint of Chersea. Even though we have talked about this, and you’re forbidden to return, we will look past this offense you’ve committed in exchange that you would never set foot unto our royal lands.Bookmark here

As the head of this regal house, I expect you would comply with our understanding. Please be aware that I’ve set up border guards to patrol our land’s borders, and anyone who’d try to sneak in would be met with punishment…whether a member of this household or not.Bookmark here

Signed, Prince Nicholas Galahad von Leese.Bookmark here

It took a few more silent moments before Lily noticed her eyes were completely drenched in tears.Bookmark here

“…”Bookmark here

Her hands were shaking, and a great sense of gloom enveloped her heart as she folded the paper from her father and stored it inside her maid uniform’s hidden pocket.Bookmark here

“…”Bookmark here

Why…why is this happening to me?Bookmark here

“…”Bookmark here

Maddie? Kuro? Please help me!Bookmark here

“…”Bookmark here

Someone…Bookmark here

However, no one had heard her pleas for help, for those cries were only said inside her heart. Lily wouldn’t dare to destroy such a merry occasion on the Saint’s recovery and her eventual engagement…Bookmark here

“…”Bookmark here

Princess Lilyhaven could only sob in silence.Bookmark here
