The Tyrant's Beloved Doll - Chapter 82
She didn’t know what kind of spirit possessed her, but Sezh tried to leave the Imperial Palace that day.
Of course, it was natural for a commotion to start at the gate of the Imperial Palace.
Princess Sezh, who always lived without showing any presence her entire life, started rioting, saying she had to go outside. It was literally a riot. Sezh kept crying and screaming noisily.
Along with the guards, who were unable to do anything, Kaen, with a pale and panicked face, tried to persuade Sezh to go back to her palace. However, it was a pipe dream to think it worked.
“If you don’t let me go, I’ll bite my tongue and die right here.”
In the face of her threat, the guards had no other choice but to release Sezh. If such news got into Yerena’s ears, she’d undoubtedly be vexed. Nevertheless, it didn’t matter to Sezh now.
As Sezh restlessly ran away, Kaen suffered for nothing as she tirelessly tried to catch her.
“Princess, where are you going? If you need anything, please tell me. I’ll find whatever it is… Okay, please?”
Sezh couldn’t even breathe properly, and her body trembled too. But soon, she began to think about Luna’s potential whereabouts.
Where? Where did she go?
Luna must have gone to the market since Kaen said Luna went to buy the ingredients for Sezh’s birthday cake. In that case, Sezh had to go there too.
“Kaen, market… Which direction is the market?”
“The market?” Kaen put on a puzzled expression.
Out of the blue, Sezh ran out of the Imperial Palace and was now asking about the market?
“It’s not far from here, right? Since Luna told you she’d be back soon….”
“Is the Princess looking for Luna? Then I will find her and bring her back. It would be better if the Princess returns to the palace-“
“Where is the location? What direction?”
“As long as you keep walking in that direction-… Princess!”
As soon as Sezh heard the answer, she ran again at full speed.
“Princess, Princess!” Sezh could hear Kaen endlessly calling her name from behind. However, the only thing that existed in her mind was Luna’s face.
After running for a while, Sezh finally saw the market entrance. She turned her head left and right with a pale face.
As the sun began to set, the market was overcrowded right around closing time. It was crazy.
The shouts of hawking merchants could be heard everywhere, and people were busy looking at the goods.
‘How do I find Luna in this place?’ Sezh got nervous.
“Princess, beware!” Suddenly, someone pulled Sezh to the side.
“Are you okay? Are you hurt?” Kaen asked urgently.
“Damn it! Why are ya standing in the middle of the road?!” The grumpy-looking driver spat out a swear.
If Kaen was even a few seconds late, it was clear that the carriage would’ve already hit Sezh.
“How dare you say something like that! Do you know who this person is…!”
“No, Kaen. I’m fine. Don’t do that.”
Kaen quickly put on a sullen expression.
“Rather than that, Luna… we need to hurry to find Luna…”
Sezh felt a cold tingle run down her spine. Luna was hit by a carriage and died. She died immediately on the spot. Sezh still remembered that day vividly.
Even while she was doing this, Luna might be being trampled by a carriage right now.
Although the accident happened when Luna was on the way back from her house to the palace, it didn’t reassure Sezh at all. Besides, there seemed to be quite a few wagons around the market.
Sezh’s anxiety took over her mind and her body.
Sezh stared at the wagon that was getting farther away. The coachman let the horses move around the market like a madman.
“Hey, have you seen this person? She’s a maid from the Imperial Palace, she’s the same height as me, and her hair reaches down to shoulders…”
“There’s a lot of people coming every day. How can I remember them all?!” The answers she got never change.
The merchants who didn’t know Sezh was a princess only showed unfriendly behavior.
“Princess, just let me search for Luna…..” Kaen, who couldn’t bear to see this scene repeat once again, spoke to persuade her.
Sezh shook her head, showing her disagreement.
It would be faster for two people rather than one person to find Luna. They can’t go back to the Imperial Palace like this. Sezh did not give up and asked one merchant again.
“I’m sorry, but I want to ask you some questions.”
“I am looking for a person. It won’t take long, so hold on-“
“If you’re not going to buy, go away! Even without you, I’m already busy here!”
“Now, you dare…!” Standing next to Sezh, the merchant’s words seemed to trigger Kaen’s rage again. Sezh reached out her hand, stopping her, and spoke politely once more.
“Please, help me. You just need to tell me. Our heights are the same, and her hair is-“
“Go away!” The merchant shouted and pushed Sezh away.
No, to be precise, he would have pushed her if only someone’s hand didn’t intervene at the perfect time.
“What kind of disrespect is this? Were you just impolite to the Princess?”
What kind of a princess is a woman with such an undignified appearance? The merchant snorted and moved his sight to the man in front of him.
“Apologize. Right now!” Mathias looked infuriated.
The gentle face he had always shown was nowhere to be seen. Mathias’ expression was even sort of terrifying.
Since it’s not anyone else but Mathias who guaranteed her identity, the merchant had no choice but to trust him.
“I- I apologize. I dared not recognize the Princess…” The merchant stuttered.
Mathias didn’t relax his expression until the merchant finished his apology. Then he carefully pulled Sezh away.
“Mathias Kareem greets the Princess Sezh,” even in the bustling market, Mathias was still as graceful as ever.
