Chapter 167: It was Me (Felicia’s POV
“Now, this is Felicia, my heiress.”
I suppose I would be introduced first since that was the order, but I had a hazy feeling that Chris was the star of the day.
“Nice to meet you, Bran-dono, Harry-dono and Prince Silas. I am Felicia Remington,” I greeted them in turn with a slight nod.
“And my other daughter, Christine.”
“It’s nice to meet you. I am Christina Remington,” Chris greeted clearly. Wonderful. She couldn’t even greet properly the other day. I was relieved to see that the children seemed like they were enjoying themselves instead of being nervous.
“Please come inside.”
It’s close to spring, but it was still winter. After the introductions were finished, they were invited to the parlour room. The boys, who were talking pleasantly about their trip, gave a good impression, but Chris soon got bored of listening and got fidgety. As discussed beforehand, it was decided that the children would interact with the other children.
“Do you want to stay inside or go outside?” Chris said as she bounced up happily.
“Harry. The air outside is still too cold for little children,” Bran said, and Harry looked startled.
“It’s okay. I always play outside. We can come back inside before it gets too cold,” Chris said, and I smiled and got up.
“I’ll come with, so I won’t let her overdo it.”
It’s annoying to get into adult talk. I might have to do it someday, but I want to spend a little time with Chris right now.
“Then, me too,” Prince Silas stood up.
“No, I’m enough. You don’t have to worry about entertaining the children, please talk with father and mother,” I refused, but His Highness bowed at father and mother and followed after me. You can follow after me, but I have to look after Chris, so I won’t entertain you.
The guards also followed along, and Chris headed outside while keeping an eye on Bran and Harry.
“What would you like to do? A game of tag or tree-climbing? Of course, if you want to have a look at flowers, then we have a greenhouse.”
The words ‘flowers and greenhouse’ made the brother, Bran, twitch, but his younger brother, Harry seemed more interested in ‘tree-climbing’. She didn’t even care that she had finally gotten dressed up, and I was dragged to where the tree was. The two climbed the tree with all their might. I knew that Chris could climb trees well, so I was able to watch her calmly.
Naturally, the three left on the ground were watching over the two young ones.
“Chris-dono seems to be very active.”
“Yes, Bran-dono. She loves to move around, but she also studies hard. She’s Prince Nicholas’s study partner.”
It’s better if this marriage interview doesn’t succeed. But, forgive me for unintentionally bragging about Chris.
“It’s disappointing that Prince Nicholas is off on a trip.”
“Yes. Prince Albert took him on a tour of the North to expand his horizons at a young age.”
“I hear he’s only three years old. Besides, since I’m already here, I would have liked to meet the next generation of Lisburn and Albans.”
