“Really? You’re going to stay there, right?”


“Well, I can’t help it.
I have no choice but to return to the Emperor’s Palace.”


“That’s rather good.
I’m in the same space as His Majesty, well.”

“Do you think His Majesty will accept you? You only slept together for one night?”

“That’s it.
You’ll see.”

When Priscilla turned her back without hesitation, Jestina was slightly embarrassed.

“Oh, where are you going?”

Jestina cried out, but Priscilla ignored her.

As Marilyn followed Priscilla’s behavior as if she could not help it, Jestina gave her a meaningful look.

Stop Priscilla.

Marilyn faced Jestina’s eyes, nodded, and turned away.

Priscilla returned to the Emperor’s Palace.

As she was about to enter the palace, the chief chamberlain approached her.

“Lady Priscilla?”

“Oh, chamberlain.

When Priscilla greeted him politely, Alfred, the chamberlain, smiled kindly.

“You don’t have to be polite to me.
Take it easy.”

“Can I?”

“Yes, but why should the person be at Lilith Palace here?”

Priscilla sighed and talked about the situation.

“…That’s what happened.
We can’t go in because they are blocking the entrance.”

Then Alfred, the chief chamberlain, nodded as if he had expected it.

“I see.”

“Did you expect that?”

“I’ve been watching Jestina since she first came to this palace, so I expected that much.”

Priscilla grinned.
A good idea struck her suddenly.

“I have a favor to ask of you, chief chamberlain.”

“Tell me.”

“Lend me a spare room in the Emperor’s Palace without His Majesty knowing.
It’s okay if it’s shabby.”

“Why a room?”

“I’ve been bragging that I’m going to the Emperor’s Palace, but I can’t just go.”

Alfred, the chief chamberlain, nodded as if he understood.

“I understand what you mean.”

“Will you help me?”

“I’ll help you.”

Priscilla clasped Alfred’s hand with both hands.

“Thank you very much.”

“Don’t mention it.
Follow me.”

Before moving, Priscilla saw Marilyn.

“You should go now.
There’s something I have to do.”

“Will you still be all right?”

“It’s all right.”

“Well, let’s go.”

Priscilla sent Marilyn and followed in his footsteps.

The chief chamberlain led her to the room in the very corner of the Emperor’s Palace.

“You won’t stand out here.
But it’s been a long time since it’s been used…”

“It’s okay.
I won’t be around for long.”

“I’ll send a maid.”

“Thank you.”

Leaving Priscilla behind, Alfred, the chamberlain, encountered Emperor Michael in the hallway.

“Your Majesty.”

“You’re being nosy.”

Already, he seemed to know everything.

“You knew.”

“There’s nothing I don’t know in this country, especially if it’s the Emperor’s Palace.
I’m sure you know that.”

Alfred, the chamberlain, laughed.
Then Michael frowned.

“You did it on purpose even though you knew.”

“Your Majesty won’t help her, so I’ll have to help her.”

“Why do you do that?”

“I’d like to say it’s for Your Majesty.”

“For me, it’s daunting.”

So Michael turned his back, and Alfred, the chamberlain, followed him closely.

“Are you going to pretend you don’t know?”

“I don’t have to pretend not to know, right?”

Chamberlain Alfred laughed instead of answering.

“Don’t laugh.”

“Yes, Your Majesty.”


The sun had set.

And Priscilla did not return to Lilith Palace as if to prove her words.

Then, the princesses had been gathering in front of Lilith Palace wearing black dresses for a long time and started whispering.

“Did she really go to the Emperor’s Palace?”

“No way.
Did he truly spend the night with Priscilla?”

As the princesses murmured, Jestina’s irritation reached its peak.

“What the hell is Marilyn doing?! She didn’t let that bitch go to the Emperor’s Palace, did she?”

Then the maid Ran approached with an urgent face and whispered in Jestina’s ear.

Jestina’s expression hardened when she heard what she said.

“Did Marilyn leave the palace?”



How dare she disobey her words and leave the palace.

“Why don’t you go back, Lady Jestina? The wind is cold at night.”

It was a little cold after sunset.

“For now, I have to go back.”

Before she went back, Jestina saw the princesses.

“I suddenly feel dizzy and have to go back, and I hope you’ll protect this place for me.
You can do that, right?”

The faces of the princesses hardened at Jestina’s words.

Because Jestina didn’t look sick at all.

But no one could complain at Jestina’s words.

Because they knew what would happen if they were hated by Jestina.

Looking at what Jestina has been doing.

“All right, Lady Jestina, go and get some rest.”

“Thank you, Leona.
You’re the only one I can rely on.”

“Don’t mention it.”

Jestina touched Princess Leona’s shoulder slightly and moved on.

When Jestina disappeared, the other princesses blamed Leona.

“Princess Leona, why did you do that?”

“What did I do?”

“Who wants to protect this place all night?”

“Then, leave, Princess.
I’ll tell Jestina well.”

“I beg your pardon?”

“If you don’t want to be here, go.
When Lady Jestina is around, you didn’t say anything before she left, don’t you feel courageous?”

Princess Leona looked back at the other princesses.

“I’m going to stay here today.
Those of you who don’t share my will with Jestina, go back.
I’ll tell Jestina well.”

That’s right, it meant she would tell her everything.

Princess Leona was a woman enough to stay.

There were several princesses who she had told to reach their goal.


A day had passed.

Priscilla spent the day quietly in the Emperor’s Palace.

The meal and bath were solved by the maid sent by the chief chamberlain.

Thanks to him, she had a relaxing night.

Michael knew everything, but he condoned it.

So Priscilla could be at ease.

“How would it be by now?”

Are they still camped in front of Lilith Palace?

“Shall I sneak over and see?”

She thought she should.

Priscilla headed to Lilith Palace with doubt.

When she hid and peeped, she couldn’t see Jestina, but only the other princesses.

But among them, a woman who seemed to have seen somewhere caught her eyes.

She was a cute woman with short purple hair.

“No way, Princess Leona?”

She could recognize her because it was the expression of the character she saw in the novel.

She was the only one with short hair among the princesses.

The reason was that Jestina instructed me not to grow it.

So she has kept her hair short all the time.

“Now I’ve seen one of Jestina’s right arms.”

She couldn’t look at the other princesses because she was dealing with Jestina, so she finally saw them now.

“I remember the end wasn’t very good.”

Princess Leona was a supporting role, but she didn’t remember much because she wasn’t a supporting role.

All she remembered was that her end was bad.

“Since she’s ruined many lives, it’s natural that the end is bad.
But, Jestina must have gone back to the palace.”

The other princesses stood guard and she went back to the palace to relax.

She thought she was a really bad person.

When Priscilla’s nose could not even be seen when the morning broke, the princesses murmured with exhausted faces.

“How long do I have to stay?”

“I know.
I stayed up all night, and I don’t even see Priscilla.”

“She must be in the Emperor’s Palace.”

A princess said bravely.

“I’m leaving.
Lady Jestina is not coming, but what does it mean to stay longer?”

“I know.
Seeing that we can’t see her even until this time, Priscilla must be in the Emperor’s Palace.”

“I feel the same way.”

Princess Leona rose from her seat as the princesses tried to move in sympathy.

“I’ll go to Jestina.”

“Then, are you telling us to get permission and go?”

“It’s all better than everyone being hated by Jestina.”

No one could speak at Princess Leona’s words.

Although she mustered up her courage, it was true that she was afraid of Jestina.

Priscilla found it difficult again today and headed back to the Emperor’s Palace.

She told them to wait as long as they wanted.


Rosemary Palace was turned upside down.

Because of Jestina’s anger.

Jestina vented her anger on innocent Ran.

Clap! Clap!

Both of Ran’s cheeks swelled up from Jestina’s slapping.

“Now, that report you made last night!”

“Sorry, Lady Jestina.”

Jestina flopped down on the luxurious sofa.

She was angry.

“It is not enough to seduce His Majesty with her humble body.
She didn’t come back from the Emperor’s Palace?”

Jestina was full of anger.

Yeah, she admitted Priscilla was beautiful.

She was so beautiful that she couldn’t match any princess in the palace.

That’s why she hated it even more.

She couldn’t have been more beautiful than her.

“To trick His Majesty with a smooth face is amazing.”

I wanted to rip off that beautiful face at any moment.

“Ran, tell the princesses to leave Lilith Palace.
Then go to Marilyn and get the list of ladies-in-waiting assigned to Lilith Palace.”

“Yes, Lady Jestina.”
