There were lavish events hosted in the spring and fall of every year. They drew everyone together, from the royal family to the most obscure noble, and were the grandest events in the kingdom.

Spring and Autumn were the names of these events, respectively. Spring was the one Seletina was attending this time.

Seletina felt restless. However, the cause of that was not the upcoming event. Rather, it was because the royal family itself had extended the invitation to her.

This meant that Seletina would have a direct audience with the king, whom she so much adored. It would be the first time she’d see the king after her rebirth. Seletina’s heart trembled with joy at this fact.

Furthermore…

The king was known to have three offspring known as the Three Stars. The two princes were the same age as Seletina and there was also the princess1.

And as fate would have it, all three of them would be attending this Spring. Seletina was so excited that her heart was about to burst. Not only would she get to meet the king but the Three Stars as well.

As Seletina observed herself in the mirror, the corners of her mouth instinctively raised. Seletina couldn’t help but smile.

“You’ve been grinning all day.”

While applying Seletina’s eyeliner, Melia remarked.

“Of course I have. Not only will I get to meet the king but the Three Stars as well. Ah, a true miracle…”

Seletina exclaimed, as if in a trance. Melia, in turn, smiled wryly,

“You’re always like this when the king comes up.” she remarked.
“Lady Seletina is a lady after all. Imagine one of Three Stars being taken in by Lady Seletina at first glimpse. Auch!”

Elita had her hands pressed to her cheeks in ecstasy when Seletina delivered a chop to her head.

One of the Three Stars falling in love with her was something Seletina dreaded greatly.

“You really do say some weird things. I can’t imagine myself and the princess having such a relationship…”
“Seletina, are you alright? Shouldn’t it be the prince?”
“Ah!”

I slipped up.

It was common for Seletina to forget that she was a girl when she wasn’t thinking about anything.

“You’re right. I don’t know what got over me.”

Seletina said with a wry smile, trying to cover up the situation.

But I can’t exclude the possibility that the princes might fall for me… Other than the royal family, the Duke is the nobility with the most influence. A duke’s daughter would make an ideal bride. Will I really be able to refuse a prince’s proposal?

Seletina’s face grew pale as she pondered that.

Even if it was the son of the king, Seletina lacked the confidence to be with a man.

However, being a duke’s daughter, she was unlikely to be able to refuse a prince’s proposal.

“Seletina, are you alright?”

Melia asked, worried about her daughter.

“Y-Yes… I’m alright. I’m excellent.”

Seletina made up her mind as she gulped the saliva that had gathered in her mouth.

No matter what I will not stand out in front of the princes.

She resolutely vowed, her tiny fists tightening with resolve2.
