Hands To Kill
No Fantasies Allowed
” She grinned innocently. He nodded his head, preparing himself for getting into action.
”Oyy Baka, ” he pronounced the words exactly as they were meant to be, even though the language was unfamiliar in the novel. His facial expressions were on point, making the fireworks inside Derith burst.
”You, you can leave now. Tha, thank you for your cooperation. ”
The man bowed once and sprinted out of the room. The Princess he saw today was very weird indeed. Of course, she was also weird before but it was the first time he found her that weird.
”What does baka mean anyway? ” He muttered to himself.
Upon reaching in front of the door of the Duchess and The Duke, he knocked on the door. After hearing a reply, he entered the room and bowed respectfully.
”What did Derith say? ” The Duke asked.
”The Princess agreed. In fact, she was very delighted. ”
”Oh my! Derith is? ”
”Yes, my lady. She especially emphasized that since Her Majesty, The Empress was eager to see her, she was too. Her eyes were twinkling. ”
The Duchess had an evil smirk on her face. Jean shuddered.
Why do the mother and daughter have the same smirk?
”Hah. Finally, I can show the prettiness of my daughter to Her Majesty. I will dress my Derith so prettily, that she would turn blind, ” Viviana uttered with pride. The Duke nodded as well.
”Our Derith never attended any birthday banquet of anyone. Its such a shocking development.
Even in her past life, Derith never attended any banquet until the time Rolilee was hit by a mystical beast in her nineteenth birthday. Derith now attending the banquet was going to make a major plot change.
Of course, Derith knew that. Thats why Derith was looking forward. Everyone was looking forward.
”Jean. Hire the best professional designers and tailors for using the best jewels and fabric to prepare a majestic dress for my Princess, Derith! ”
”Yes. My daughter should shine brilliantly in the Imperial Palace, ” the Duke agreed.
Jean already engraved the order in his mind. Of course, it was already an important mission to him.
He also wants the Young Princess to shine the brightest!
”Yes, my Lord and Lady! I will get to work right away! ” Jean, with a salute, exited the room.
Meanwhile, Derith already prepared a plan for her activities in the birthday banquet.
1. Greet the Empress and impress her.
2. Watch over Rolilee.
3. Avoid the Duke and the Crown Prince.
4. Taste every desserts.
5. Fantasize over the handsome Emperor.
She remembered making the Emperor handsome in her story. He had fierce platinum golden hair and red eyes like Rubies.
So, now, she would make sure to admire him from far or maybe near.
Thinking for a while, she added another point to her to-do list.
6. Be the Emperors favourite.
Back then, Derith had no clue about the real future she was going to set up and whos favourite she was going to be.
