The Young Lady Tames the Main Leads - Chapter 69
Fortunately, it seemed that things would be easier thanks to Alice speaking to me first.
Just when I had just finished thinking about talking to her, I saw Alice was about to turn around because she finished talking to me..
Oops, did I procrastinate too much?
I hurriedly opened my mouth to stop her.
“Uh, hey, Alice…”
But why was it difficult this time?
Normally, I would have spoken casually, but maybe it’s because it would be the first time I invited someone other than Jake to my house…
Errr… I couldn’t speak readily.
‘What should I say? Would you like to come to my house? No, that’s too straightforward.’
That said, I don’t think there’s any need to say that we should play together like a social language.
Oh my God. Contemplating, I shook my head.
Seeing me like that, I saw Alice tilting her head.
‘Ah, if I’m like this, Alice might think I’m a strange kid.’
In the end, I made a quick decision.
Yes, just don’t worry and just go ahead! Brain, help me say the right words!
“Hey, Alice… Do you want to play together at my house after kindergarten today?”
I closed my eyes tightly and shot the question at her.
Now, it was up to Alice.
I felt my heart pound for a bit.
‘What should I do? My heart is beating faster than when I open birthday presents.’
The answer did not come promptly.
I still couldn’t see Alice’s expression because my eyes were closed.
For someone like Alice, who is shy, was it still too early to invite her home?
…I was a little scared when I thought that I might be rejected.
Oh no! Still, I was the one who had the most conversations with Alice in kindergarten.
I mustered up the courage and opened my eyes. Then, what I saw faintly in front of me…
Alice made an expression as if she had heard an alien language.
And gradually Alice’s face turned bright.
She might have found it slightly unfamiliar, but her expression wasn’t one of dislike at the invitation.
No, rather than dislike, it seemed like she was happy.
It was indeed an expression of happiness.
Alice didn’t hesitate because she felt embarrassed or wanted to refuse.
‘Are you just surprised by the sudden invitation…?’
Alice responded by nodding her head vigorously.
“Yes, Yes! I’m surprised. Act-actually, I’ve always wanted to play with my Lady!”
“Really? Thank God. Thanks for accepting, Alice. Then……”
I tried to tell her to ride the same carriage as me later after kindergarten.
But I couldn’t finish the conversation because ‘uninvited guests’ who were secretly eavesdropping on my conversation with Alice, interrupted our conversation.
At the beginning, it was a voice similar to Cedric’s grumbling.
“Hey, I’m coming as well. Let me join you two.”
“What?” Of course I was startled.
Cedric seemed like he wasn’t getting enough sleep at home and slept during classes without any concern. However, he must have been pretending to be asleep and eavesdropped on our conversation.
Above all else, it would be problematic to talk to Alice because she is rather quiet if she is with other children.
So, I deliberately chose a time when only the two of us were around.
‘This is difficult!’
But it was difficult to refuse.
After all, Cedric had already heard that Alice would be coming to my house.
If I refused him, Cedric would think that the two of us were planning to cruelly leave him out.
‘We were just getting closer, but now we might get farther apart again…’
Finally, I sighed and answered.
“Yes, then, Lord Cedric, you may also come to my house today.”
“Hurray! Hmmm, hmm hmm… Alright.”
As soon as I agreed, Cedric roared with joy. Then, right away, he pretended as if he wasn’t and started coughing.
‘Heh, I guess I’ve already found out all your favorite things?’
I thought to myself, and tried to sit down on a chair.
But even before I could sit, I heard a chirping voice holding me back.
“Hey, Emir, do you dare to invite them without me?”
I was so surprised that I almost fell on my back.
The appearance of a character that was even more unexpected than Cedric’s butting in.
Surprisingly, the owner of that voice was the princess.
‘…Since when has the door been open? Sigh.’
I lamented my lack of attentiveness to my surroundings.
But, either way, the sound of small footsteps approaching me got closer and closer with Ninaina stopping in front of me and speaking with a look of displeasure.
“…You really didn’t mean to leave without me, did you?”
Come on, say no一I felt an unspoken pressure.
In fact, even if she hadn’t given such a signal, I would still have answered no.
My plans were already off with Cedric eavesdropping on the conversation.
‘I can’t help it. I’ll invite all the kids from the kindergarten this time, and next time I’ll just play with Alice.’
I quickly shook my head to organize my thoughts and immediately waved my hands towards her.
“I’m not! Of-of course, I was going to invite the Princess too! However, I thought it might be impudent of me to invite the precious princess to our mansion… So, I hesitated…”
Ah, what nonsense am I talking about now.
After all, I guess I’m the type that just prattles on when I don’t say out the predetermined lines.
