Title: The Prime Minister is also my friend
*Unedited. Appreciate if anyone willing to point out any mistake. Birthday treat #3
“What is this?”
“This is the prophecy.”
I handed the novel that I hid earlier on to Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister showed a normal reaction upon this.
“There is a woman trying to capture me by following it faithfully.”
Hearing the word from His Highness, the Prime Minister started to flip through the pages.
“I see. If you are able to successfully recreate the story, you will be able to become the Queen….”
The Prime Minister murmured seriously to himself.
“No, she will not be able to become the Queen.”
“Why is that?”
“At the end of the prophecy, that woman will choose Lamore instead.”
My father quickly snatched the book of prophecy from the Prime Minister.
Father, how could you do that?
I wanted you to teach me how to do that.
“I see. Following this story, Lamore will be chosen by that woman. Is that what was written here?”
My father continued to flip the pages with a serious expression.
“Thanks to this book of prophecy, I will be able to annul my engagement with Lamore-sama.”
“………..The Earl’s daughter who appears here is modeled after Yulias, isn’t she?”
When I kept my silence, my father held my hand so that I faced him.
“Give me the rest of the book.”
“I want to see the dialogue that you had used earlier.”
I don’t want to.
“We haven’t launched it yet.”
“Then, there must be the original manuscript, isn’t it?”
A~ I don’t want to give that to him.
“I left it at home.”
“I understand. Let’s make some time tonight.”
“What is it?”
“Even though this is the book of prophecy, please cease any thought that His Highness and I are in love with each other.”
I sighed before continued.
“It is troublesome to become a Queen! Because a Queen is restricted within the castle, she will never be able to do any trade business with a foreign country. Being a Queen….. is truly a boring profession!”
My father started to chuckle after hearing my words, whereas the Prime Minister was smiling bitterly.
His Highness was also sighing.
“Your Highness, she might unexpectedly turn into a good type of friend.”
It seemed that the Prime Minister had somehow acknowledged me.
“What is it?”
“Thank you for your acknowledgement. I am grateful to be a friend of yours.”
“……Did I ever mention my intention of becoming your friend….?”
“You said that I am a good friend, right? Isn’t that right, father?”
“That’s right. Thank you very much, Your Excellency.”
I knew that the Prime Minister had turned stiff from that.
“Don’t worry. I will take care of this important cog-wheel seriously.”
“Yulias, you should not call your friend as a cog wheel.”
“Ara~ I have been careless.”
His Highness sighed deeply as I laughed.
“Prime Minister, just give up and become her friend.”
“But, His Highness…”
“It is much better to have a Nogger as your ally. It would be horrible to imagine what will happen if they were to turn into your enemy.”
His Highness also took part in persuading the Prime Minister.
“……….I understand. Let’s become friends.”
I smiled as I faced the Prime Minister.
“I pledge to not bring any downfalls upon His Excellency unless His Excellency himself decided to betray me first.”
“Yulias, you also need to give your pledge to me.”
“I could hear you.”
His Highness sighed when he saw me clicking my tongue at him.
“It was too much of you to keep scoffing at me.”
“It was unintentional, Your Highness.”
“I think you should try to fix it a little bit.”
“I will only do this to you, Your Highness.”
“This is the problem with you, Yulias.”
When I tilted my head towards him, His Highness once again started to sigh deeply.
