’m not seriously hurt.”

“I heard it was a carriage accident.”

“Yes, that’s true, but I only hurt my knee slightly…”

“Still, I don’t think I can just let you go.
Let me see if you’re okay with my own eyes.”

If the two of us continued to argue about it, it might happen until sunset.
I sighed softly.

“Then, please take care of me.”

Valery carried me tightly as if he had been waiting.
I’m not even a baby, but what is this? Still, it was much more comfortable than when I was carried by Delkian earlier.

The place I was taken to was not his guest room but his palace.
No wonder we walked for quite a long time.
I was a little embarrassed because it was a place I came in without a plan.

Delkian said that there were a lot of eyes to see, so he stopped his carriage at a nearby place, but Valery came all the way here casually.
Almost at the same time, the doctor came in and checked my condition.
After checking my pulse and my condition, he talked to Valery.

“She’s in a state of shock from the accident.
The wound can be healed immediately, but she will need to take some medicine for a few days.
I will make the medicine right away.”

He looked very serious as he observed my wound.

“Will it leave a scar?”

“Fortunately, it’s not a deep wound, and as long as she gets treatment, it will be fine.”

“Is that so? Then treat her with all your heart.”

“Yes, Your Highness.”

The doctor started treatment, but he was in great trouble as Valery was watching him with his eyes lit.
I think the doctor probably had a cold sweat on his back.
As the doctor was kneeling on one knee examining me, Valery watched us all the time.


I involuntarily groaned when the doctor pressed a cotton pad coated with disinfectant into my open wound.
It was tolerable until a while ago, but the medicine was so strong that it felt like it was digging into the wound.

“Does it hurt?”

“It doesn’t hurt.”

“You just groaned.”

“It-It’s because it was cold.”

I just lied to the doctor for fear of getting scolded.
He didn’t seem to believe it anyway.

“Hold on a little bit.
If you hold it in until it’s over, I will do anything for you.”

His words were like talking to a child.

“What kind of kid am I that you treated me like this?”

As I rolled my eyes, he raised the corner of his lips as if he was holding back his laughter and turned his head.
After the doctor finished the treatment, he prepared the medicine.
I thought I could go immediately, but the doctor left Valery and me alone.

“The medicine will come soon.
So… how did the accident happen?”

“I think our carriage was a little in a hurry, and the coachman saw the first prince’s carriage too late.
So we avoided it.
But I’m really okay.
Even the doctor was surprised too.”

“Still, you have an open wound.”

“As long as it doesn’t leave a scar, it can be treated.
Have you been busy all this time?”

I changed the topic because I thought he would be gloomier if we went deep into that topic.

“I’ve been a little busy.
By any chance…”

“By any chance?”

He mumbled, so I looked at him, wondering what else he would say.

“Did you wait for me?”

I guess he thought I asked because I waited for him.

“Well, to a certain extent…”

Then he let go of the strength of his shoulder, which had been tense for a while and sighed.

“I was going to write a letter to Lady today.”


“I said last time that I would take you to a nice place.”

“Ah… Your Highness doesn’t have to send me a letter now that you’ve seen me.”

“I would have been happy if Lady hadn’t been hurt.”

“Then, does it mean you aren’t happy right now?”

“Ah, it’s not like that.”

His quick correction made me burst into laughter.
Soon the doctor returned and gave me a bundle of medicine and instructions.
When I was surprised, they told me they would give me medicine, but the doctor seemed to have put all kinds of things that were good for my body.

I got up from my seat and handed a large medicine bag to Ian, who was following after me like a shadow from before, like a scarecrow.
Every time I put strength on my legs, I felt pain, but it wasn’t so bad that I couldn’t walk.

“I’ve got to go.
Could you take me to the first prince? I couldn’t even say thank you to him.”

It wasn’t to see him again, but for ordinary nobles, since they were indebted to the imperial family, it was normal to see them and greet them unless the person who was indebted to them were dead.

“You don’t have to tell him in person.
I will tell him.”

Valery seemed to have no intention of taking me to the first prince.
He was already big, but he was like a big wall when he was blocking the road.
