Cain and Dianna’s tussling festival of the prince’s head continued until the handmaiden called out to them to move to the dining room.
After that, we all walked down the long corridor towards the dining room.
“The castle is huge, isn’t it? I’ve always thought it would be nice to have a carriage to take us through the corridors.”
“The corridors would have to be widened to accommodate carriages.”
“Even with the current size, a small carriage could pass through, but it would be a one-way street. It would be a one-way street, though, and we might have to go around in circles in some rooms, which would take a lot of time.”
“That’s true. More importantly, if you run the carriage indoors, the biggest problem is…”
The three children walked behind the queen and the duchess, who were chatting cheerfully, saying something about horse manure.
“Can I call you Brother Cain?” Arundilano asked.
“No,” Cain answered immediately.
“Can you think about it a little bit…” Arundilano said.
“Can I call Di ‘sister’?”
“What? Why…” Dianna said.
“You can call me Cain. Your Highness,” Cain said.
“…Okay. Cain,” Arundilano answered sadly.
“You can call Di by Di if you want to,” Dianna said.
“No. Please call her Dianna. I will not allow you to call her by a nickname,” Cain corrects.
“You can call Di by Dianna if you want to,” Dianna said.
“Cain, Diane. Will you play with me again after today?” Arundilano said.
“If Your Highness works hard at embroidery, we will see you at the embroidery party,” Cain said.
At the tea party, Cain was asked by the queen to join the embroidery group again. He thought he would be expelled because of the problems he caused, but apparently, the other ladies in the group had become Cain’s fans.
At social gatherings, men are always in a position to help women, escorting them, forcing them to be gentlemen, and giving them the right to choose their own dance partners.
However, back at home, it is a different story. There are many families where the husbands are arrogant, and as long as the heir is born, many husbands have mistresses and do not care about their wives. There are probably more than a few couples who could not nurture their love after a political marriage due to the balance of their titles and family status, or the ties of the factions they belong to.
Cain appeared in front of such women who were dissatisfied with their husbands who were kind to them outside the home but left them to take care of the house and the children when they returned home.
Cain’s praise of women was not a simple praise of beauty, but praise, respect, and gratitude for bearing and raising children.
On top of that, Cain had practiced embroidery properly. He had completed his assignments and submitted his work to a level that could be seen.
Their husbands looked down on them as if embroidery was a woman’s work, and yet would tell them to do it when necessary. These women, who were fed up with their husbands, saw a glimmer of light towards Cain.
Cain was their star of hope, as he understood the hobby they were so passionate about and so enthusiastic about and came on board himself.
“Everyone wants Cain to continue to participate,” said the queen.
Because of this, Cain’s violence against the prince was forgiven with only a verbal apology, which was an exceptional treatment. Of course, the fact that it was an attempt and he was unharmed was also significant.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
The conversation eventually led us to the dining hall, where we each took a seat. This time, Cain didn’t have to do anything, and they were seated in the order, Dianna, Cain, and Arundirano.
Again, Cain took care of the two four-year-olds, giving three-quarters of the last dessert to Dianna and one quarter to Arundirano.
Cain took good care of the children, and the two mothers chatted happily all the time.
After the last tea, it was time to call it a day.
“It was fun. It was fun to simply chat without any hidden agenda,” the queen said.
“Please come visit our house next time. If you are with the prince, then the Queen will be able to visit the duke’s house. Or rather, you could come as a mother accompanying her son to a friend’s house,” Elyse said.
Cain found out later that the queen and Elyse had been friends since their days at the Academy of Magic. Both of them are the eldest daughters of the marquis family, and they were very close to each other.
However, after they got married and had their own positions, it was difficult for them to enjoy their encounters as simple friends.
From here on, our main focus will be to let the children play, and we’ll merely be chaperones. We are just going to enjoy our chat while they are playing, yohohohohoho. It seems that they want to re-establish their friendship in this way.
“Cain, Dianna. It was fun today. Come and visit us again. We have lots of toys here!” Arundirano involuntarily spoke.
As I and Dianne got into the carriage and stretched out to say goodbye before closing the door, Arundirano tried his best to talk to me. In all honesty, Cain didn’t want to get too close to the crown prince, because he didn’t think it would do any good to get close to him. For instance, whenever he came to visit, he would definitely need to bring Dianna along with him. The more times she sees him, the more likely she will become his fiancée, and that scares me.
“Goodbye, Crown Prince. Let’s meet again when the opportunity arises,” Cain answered.
“Bye! See you soon!” Arundirano replied.
The door was closed, and the carriage started to move.
Elyse, who had been looking outside for a while, sat back down deeply and returned her gaze to the carriage, noticing that she could no longer see the sendoff.
“Mother. Am I right in assuming that my house arrest is lifted as of today?” asks Cain.
“Well, yes. You will have to go home and wait for your father’s decision, but tomorrow you will probably be able to leave your room and spend your time as usual.” answered Elyse.
“Then I’ll have to contact Professor Yannis to get back on track with my studies. I also need to contact Professor Cyrus and Professor Tirunoa…”
“Not until we get your father’s official permission,” Elyse said.
“Professor Yannis will be here tomorrow. It’s Di’s study day!”
Diane smiled and told me about the information about Yannis tomorrow.
What other lady could be so thoughtful and nice? Oh, Dianna is so nice! Cain looked at his mother’s face with the expression, but she only returned his gaze with a scowl.
“Anyway, I’m glad you were able to patch things up. I was surprised but relieved because I thought Cain would have more trouble with the crown prince,” Elyse said relievingly.
“I was surprised…”
As soon as the carriage started to rock, Dianna, who tends to get sleepy when rocking, started rocking like the boat, so I gently laid her down and put her head in my lap. I gently combed her hair with my hand and gazed at her sleeping face with a look of debauchery on my face.
“I’m really worried about your future. Cain.”
Elyse sighed heavily.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
