Chapter 94 - My First Love
“I can make one like calling your cousins while you’re crying.” Although he’s my distant cousin, he’s unlikable. I waved my hand instead of answering, and he smiled, “Just in case, don’t walk around alone. Always bring Daisy with you, alright? Lady Crybaby.”
I threw a pillow at him out of annoyance, but he was already out of the room. Damn it! Maybe I should craft a doll. I picked up a needle, but I couldn’t do it because I was constantly reminded of Rey’s annoying face.
‘Ugh, this is annoying.’
I wondered how I should relieve myself of this annoyance but then I remembered I should prepare some clothes for the coming fall. So, I decided to go shopping with Daisy.
“Daisy, what do you think about that hat?”
She shook her head with a stern look at my question. It might look like I brought Daisy because of what Rey said, but actually, I brought her along for a different purpose. She has a very keen sense of fashion, so she was very helpful when going shopping.
“What about that?” I asked.
Daisy nodded softly in response to my question this time. Hmm, I should try it on. I was about to put my hands on the hat that Daisy allowed when someone else also placed her hand on it. I looked up to see who it was.
“Lady Harrant, what is the meaning of this rudeness?”
It was graceful, but a clearly hostile voice. Silver hair sparkled in front of my eyes. Beautiful aquamarine-like eyes were glaring at me. I also glared at her while I was trying not to falter behind.
“My, Lady Schuteiner. I put my hand on it first.”
Elise von Schuteiner. I didn’t think I would come across her here. She glared at me for a long time, then moved her hand away with a smile.
“Maybe you like touching things that I’ve touched first. Oh well, it looks like you look better with this after all,” commented Elise. She then whispered to me so that only I could hear her, “You’re like a crow thinking that it’s something better, so it’s picking up lavish feathers one by one. You think you’re something?”
I glared at her because of how two-faced she was. The boutique was quiet, but her whispers were fazed out by small chattering all around, so her mask wasn’t taken off around people here.
Then, she smiled and whispered, “Marina, oh Marina. Are you full of yourself because you danced with His Highness? Do you think he was being truthful? You’re just a toy to him.”
As she finished, she dropped the hat from its display and stepped on it with her heel. Then, she pulled me toward her, making me also step on the hat. It happened all too quickly.
“What are you doing? I know you hate me, but you didn’t need to do this to a hat just because you grabbed the same one that I had put my hand on!”
She was acting like a Lady Schuteiner who was fighting for justice as she looked at me with guilt. Everyone around, the nobles who visited the boutique as guests began to whisper.
“Lady Harrant? The one that danced with Highness before Lady Schuteiner did?”
“There were rumors that Lady Schuteiner’s engagement was canceled because of that.”
“She sure has a temper. Is she being arrogant because she got His Highness’s attention?”
“Poor Lady Schuteiner. Look at her… She’s shivering.”
I glared at every one of them who was muttering about. Fools. You don’t know anything. That b**ch is shivering with her head down because she’s only trying hard to suppress her laughter!
