“I dislike you.”

The words that felt similar to a death sentence escaped the young girl’s mouth.

It would be worth explaining that these words did, by no means, mean an end to one’s life or social standing.

Seletina ul Gold Aldelight, on the other hand, took the young girl’s words as a form of rejection. For Seletina, that rejection was like a merciless blade ripping into her heart.

After speaking her piece, the young girl snorted, pulled her dress as she turned around, and walked away, leaving just the echoing of her heels in her wake.

Seletina could only stare as the girl walked away, a dead fish expression on her face.

Seletina had died. She’d died right there and then.

The girl who’d just left was Eleanor1 Hazes Elugor Dina Pricia.

The first princess of the Kingdom of Elugor, and the cherished daughter of the king. And the one Seletina ought to have been serving.

Seletina collapsed on the spot, white-eyed and frothing at the mouth at the unforgivable and ruthless status quo of being despised by Eleanor2.

Let’s go back in time…

◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆

Golden hair that flowed gracefully to the waist.

In the shadow of a pair of long lashes, deep blue eyes filled with purity and integrity showed themselves.

Fair skin, as white as the first snow with a faint tinge of red, and limbs as delicate as Chinese porcelain.

These were all features of the now 14-year-old Seletina ul Gold Aldelight.

Seletina was now more attractive, while still maintaining a hint of her childlike charm.

She’d gotten taller and her curves were now more pronounced giving her a more profound look. Furthermore, the increase in her bosom and bottom areas made her look more feminine.

Seletina still possessed the innocence that went along with her youthful, angel-like appearance, but she also had elements of the demonic, seductive beauty that came from adulthood.

“Lady Seletina…! You’ve become even more stunning!”

Elita gasped and tears rolled down her eyes as she witnessed Seletina’s beauty.

It goes without saying that this was in no way exaggerated. Tears could truly be seen streaming down her cheeks.

Seletina was wearing the same red dress she had on her tenth birthday, but it had been altered to fit her taller frame.

Despite the fact that it was the same person wearing the same dress, the difference was astounding. Even Seletina herself was lost for words as she looked at herself in the full-length mirror.

I’m beautiful.

Seletina thought. She had known this for a very long time, yet now that she was in front of the mirror, she couldn’t help but be reminded of it.

The transition of her body and mind into those of a lady’s weighed on Seletina’s mind.

Surprisingly, however, the fact did not distress her too much.

Seletina was torn when standing in front of the mirror. Did she want to remain as Orthus? Or perhaps as Seletina? Despite her tireless contemplation, she had yet to reach a conclusion. But it wasn’t as if she needed one.

Orthus was Seletina. And Seletina was Orthus. A knight’s spirit inside a lady’s body. Seletina liked that ambiguity about herself.

That is why he and she would merely live honestly and in line with their beliefs. That is what they’d sworn to themselves.

Orthus gently placed his hand on the mirror. Seletina followed suit, placing hers on top of his.

They both laughed.

“You seem happy.”

Seletina exclaimed.

Melia took a chair from the dressing table and set it down while smiling.

“Come. I’ll make you look fabulous.”
“Really? Thank you!”

Seletina replied with a huge smile.

Melia’s gentle hands rested on Seletina’s shoulders as she sat down softly in the chair.

“Are you nervous?”
“Not at all.”
“Fufu. That’s the daughter of the Aldelight family.”

Melia replied, her eyes beaming with delight.

“Good luck with the debut.”

Melia said, to which Seletina nodded.

The season was Spring3.

The now 14-year-old4 Seletina ul Gold Aldelight would, at last, make her debut on this long-awaited day for the Aldelight family.



  2. Robinxen: You see though MY Princess Eleanor is a princess knight though, so she’d get on really well with Seletina. You can just rue the fact you were reincarnated in the wrong world.
  3. Robinxen: Wow we skipped some time
  4. Robinxen: Wow we skipped a lot of time
