Doted on by the Crown Prince 36Coral Tea
Aishira was invited to the tea party in order to make a report of her visit with the queen of the sea fairies.
Delicious tea along with cakes that Tiararose had made was prepared for them in the drawing room.
The reason that Tiararose, Aquasteed, and Aishira were here was so they could talk about the sea fairies who would steal the sweets.
At the door, both Tiararose and Aquasteed's guards stood watch.
However, a tea party that was about making a report would not have the most pleasant atmosphere.
Tiararose felt bewildered by how gloomy Aishira looked. Aishira had received a great shock over the fact that the queen of the sea fairies had not accepted her.
She who had been loved by the sea fairies more than anyone else in the kingdom. She must have been confident-that she would be able to get along with the fairy queen as well.
"The queen is a different matter. Even if the fairies are fond of you, it will still be difficult to make the queen feel the same. Don't feel too down about it."
Aquasteed said as if it were the most normal thing. Aishira nodded weakly.
"Princess Aishira… I too am not liked by the sea fairies."
"Thank you. Tiararose."
Tiararose was liked by the king of the forest fairies and others. However, she was disliked by the fairies of the sea.
And while that made her a little sad, she also thought it was kind of arrogant to want all of the fairies to love her as well.
Of course, it was an otome game that she had really loved. It wasn't that she didn't have a hope of being loved by all kinds of people. But in the end, she had the biggest love of all in Aquasteed.
There was not one speck of her that felt that she needed more.
"I met with the queen of the fairies and was sent away. I swam down into the sea many times after that but…"
Aishira clenched the fists that she had on her lap.
It was clearly difficult for her to speak, but she continued slowly.
"-But, I am no longer allowed to reach the palace of the fairy queen. No matter how deep I swim, the sea just continues on forever."
There were tears at the corners of Aishira's eyes now. Tiararose quietly offered her a handkerchief. She understood that this was troubling for her, but she hoped that she would not blame herself too much.
Aishira thanked her and wiped at her eyes with it.
Ultimately, the result was that-nothing had been resolved at all in the present.
Tiararose did not care too much, as all it meant was the continued robbery of her sweets. But Aquasteed felt differently.
His beloved wife's sweets were being stolen. And who knew what would happen next? He had to eliminate all uncertainty.
"In regards to this issue, I will just have to-… Grail?"
Aishira was unable to get any information, so he would have to do something. It was just as Aquasteed was thinking this when the air in the room suddenly changed.
He immediately recognized what had happened and called the name.
"Hehe, I decided to pay you a visit."
It was Grail, queen of the sky fairies that had visited.
Just as Tiararose happily called her name, another voice sounded from the side. It sounded very annoyed.
"What, so you are just going to ignore me?"
Grail, queen of the sky fairies and Keith, king of the forest fairies. And both had appeared at the same time.
Tiararose's voice rose in surprise. Aishira shrank back a little as she was overwhelmed by the sight of two important people.
"I heard that you and have been having tea with Grail recently. It is good to see you, Tiara."
"It has been too long. I am so very pleased to meet the king of the forest fairies once "
"Please don't with the formalities. Well, it is good to see that you are happy."
Tiararose and Keith had not met since the wedding.
Tiararose considered thanking the fairy king, but Keith hated such formal things.
He invited himself to one of the chairs and began to pour himself some tea.
Tiararose would have poured him the tea herself, but it was also very much like him to do it himself. She chuckled.
He drank it down in one gulp and noisily placed the cup on the saucer.
Grail warned him with a "What bad manners." but Keith did not seem to pay any attention to it.
"More importantly, don't you have a gift for them?"
"You are a fairy king as well. Can you not have better manners? Oh, yes. I brought some coral tea with me today."
The fairy king and queen talked without much regard for their surroundings.
Tiararose then asked Philiane to bring a new set of teacups for them. She had never heard of such tea. What could it be?
She looked curiously at the package that Grail pulled out.
"You are the ruler of the sky fairies, but you brought coral tea?"
Aquasteed looked at Grail suspiciously.
Fairy kings generally had a strong connection to their forest, sky or sea. Corals were from the ocean, so they were a part of Pearl's territory.
It seemed very strange for Grail, who was the queen of the sky fairies, to bring this as a gift.
"Exactly! Well, actually this was something I got from Pearl. But it is so good, so I am sharing it with you."
