“so, what’s up with you? It’s like you saw some brand new toy while your eyes keep shining”
Emma was behind me while I was looking from afar. It was one of the romantic scenes I’ve read in this novel series. Though I am still biased with the second lead, I cannot say that I don’t think these scenes are necessary. After all, it’s what the author and readers wanted to witness.
“Girl, you shouldn’t go for his highness, you will only receive heartbreak. I heard many noble ladies keep approaching him but look at that. Isn’t it a rare scene?”
Excuse me !? I was not into the prince, to begin with, also I don’t like goody-two-shoes like him. He keeps flirting around until Clarissa comes into the picture because of the first time he got rejected by a girl like her.
Yes, Clarissa Mei Tart was from a distant noble family, basically a country bumpkin who has strong opinions of her own. I might say that I like her personality since it was refreshing. She isn’t the innocent damsel in distress type but the thing is…
She is super CLUMSY and DENSED to the point that this confession scene was necessary only for her to know the prince’s true feelings. I feel bad and sympathetic to his highness, prince Arwin Gale lischbert. So NO, I am not crushing over him. I am more of the rebel and gangster type when it comes to guys considering how my personality works well with them. [Has only been cheated and used by past lovers]
“Whatever, come on let’s go and dance. It’s a festival after all and no one says the same gender is not allowed to be paired”
I said convincingly to Emma, I held her hand and swayed smoothly into the rhythm with her while my body freely moved on its own accord. It wasn’t in my intention to get close to them REALLY but it happened so I guess this is just my luck?
Little did I know, the couple is so close to me. I could hug and strangle them both easily remembering what it took for them to have a happily ever after while people around them suffered great loss.
“Oh- it’s time to switch partners”
When I spun around to switch, it was to my surprise that it was now a man. And not only that it was a man, but it was the second lead character SEAN!?
“Oh my god. Is it you again? And I thought it was a lucky charm when I see you both again but…”
There was this awkward atmosphere around him, and what’s more, I know the reason why. It is his killing intent towards the prince! Oh man, no wonder I was feeling anxious this whole time the moment I met the two of them.
“So it seems piglet”
“I have been wondering this since earlier but, why am I being called a piglet?”
“Simply because you’re ugly and heavy. Who would have known that a lady like you could weigh more than me? I have to use magic just to lift these arms”
The great mage twirled me around into a soft spin (surprisingly) as if he was playing with a new toy, I was getting dizzy that I had to lean towards him for support. I accidentally tripped into Clarissa's gown causing me to slide and lean over to sean. Not just that, but instead of gracefully landing and accepting defeat
My hand just had to pull a few of his hair strands which were beautifully tied up in a bun. This is the end, I am now doomed. To begin with, I don't even know how I will last in his hands while knowing his personality among the other characters.
Clenching my eyes, I realized the incident seems to happen often lately. Deja vu? Slowly opening my eyes, there is a gorgeous specimen in front of my face, his eyes became clear to see, like rubies attached to a porcelain skin of his. I could feel my heart beating loudly inside my chest
And so as soon as I regained my senses, I pushed him away and stepped back from him quickly. I could feel my face getting flustered and I looked around removing myself from the scene. I scanned for the crown prince and the lady Clarissa he was with.
Thankfully, I saw them in the garden maze nearby. I sneaked up behind them leaving the plaza quietly. I know this is unusual behavior, to begin with, but it is a first that the previous owner of this body and my thoughts are syncing. As a spectator(stalker) I have to witness this once-in-a-lifetime chance.
"What are you doing, piglet?"
This familiar voice, tone, and pitch. And just as I was about to turn my head around, I instinctively pulled him by the collar and hid behind the wall bush with him. It was none other than Sean, the sexy, tyrant baddie mage. I forgot, he was the meddling type of character once he took interest in something or someone, and then he would instantly leave them once his thirst for curiosity had been quenched.
“Just be quiet and stay still”
I held him near me and covered his eyes and mouth just in case, but then this rascal just had to lick my palm that I squealed, creating an ungraceful sound which alerted the two’s attention towards us.
“Lady Clarissa, I love you-”
Ah, this agony, why does it not go as the novel was supposed to be? I am so dead now, not only that, I may be beheaded as well since there are two men here enough to kill me with their good looks and perfectly sculptured bodies.
sheathing his sword, I guess it’s time for me to reveal myself and properly apologize to the crown prince for eavesdropping. I released Sean immediately but suddenly my vision became blurry and the next thing I know, I was in Sean’s arms again!? Wait a minute, and why do I feel fur around me?
“Pardon me your royal highness it seems to be that my darling little piglet had been running around carelessly that I have to personally tend to it” Piglet? WTF? Did he just turn me into an animal? Are you f*cking kidding me? “Oink oink oink…” Yes, that is me, complaining to him while he held me into his arms with ease and satisfaction. His grinning face really annoys me right now, if only he isn’t my bias I would be simping for other characters. The crown prince and the lady Clarissa were there standing dumbfounded by the fact that they did not expect Sean to immediately come out from hiding. Though, maybe this was a good thing since it was my initial goal to stop Sean from witnessing the confession and leave the two alone. I also thought of comforting him after his miserable unrequited love for the heroine b
"You brat, I can at least expect a bit of sympathy from a friend. All you do is laugh at me from the moment I opened my mouth and told you everything"I and Emma are taking our breaks in between during the festivities, and if my memory is correct this is the time where the female lead and the crown prince decided to have their share of their moment in strolling around freely.Sean? Well, I don't know where the hell he was in this timeline, but I bet he's still as handsome as ever! How could the female lead don't see his gorgeous looks and longing eyes of affection? If it were me, I would rather be with Sean than the playboy crown prince.As I started grumbling to myself, Emma and I stumbled across a booth where we shot small ammo towards the bucket where the prize was on top of it. This scene is kinda a cliche thing in most romance movie
As I came back from our campsite, Emma and the others barged into me quickly as soon as I entered my supposed room. It was in a flash that they dragged me into one of the gypsy’s common rooms exclusively just for the lady dancers. My butt flopped directly on the soft mattress of the bed while I could feel the fiery stares of my friends who surrounded me. Their faces were eager to listen to what I had to say about the man who I spent my free time with and ended up going home late. "Come on guys it's nothing really, we're just merely acquainted with each other and some other stuff happened by accident that's why he knows me. And.." I paused for a moment and let out a long sigh. I continued to talk about what happened and to cut it short, I told them that he invited me as his dance partner on the last day of the festival. They all
"Piglet, why are you here? What if someone were to steal a dance from you? I'd be extremely troubled you know" Sean began to fake his tears as if he sounded like he was crying only to tease me some more. Deep inside I knew what he meant, he just finds it annoying to dance with lots of women who squeal every time they have the smallest chance and brag about it to society. "Oh come on, I know that's not what you meant. Besides, it was my mistake in the beginning after getting dragged here by the princess so that he could actually have his chance to confe--" I was taken aback as I realized what I was rambling on about. Taking a slight glance at Sean's expression, I was shocked to see his calm and expressionless face while he stared at me talking. Realized I was being too infor
I suddenly felt faint, as my hands began to freeze as well as my numbing head. It was a weird feeling that I thought I would reach my second death now. Sean’s voice was trembling, calling me out in the open with that disgusting and unbefitting nickname he had for me. But what can I do? I think I’ve grown fond of it along the time we spent together. Besides, It’s a dream come true to see my favorite bias character and even be called by his not so pretty “nickname”. After that incident, I woke up after 3 days as per sean who occasionally visits my chambers. As far as I could recollect, I am in the royal palace’s guest wing. The room was filled with white curtains and red frills sticking out from the sheets and silk cloths which looks expensive enough to cost me a few months’ rent in my previous life. “You’re up piglet?” Ah, I missed thi
