Charlotte Aria looked down at the young man with an awkward look. Judging by her flushed nape, she looked hot.
After a brief moment of silence, Charlotte Aria rubbed her neck.
“You dare speak in such a manner in my presence?”
She spoke in an authoritative tone. She came off more cute than imposing, but Seol Jihu did not reveal his inner thoughts.
“My apologies, Your Majesty.”
“It is fine. Earthlings are all like that. Since you were also in Haramark, it isn’t as if I cannot understand.”
She was subtly berating the Haramark Royal Family, who dealt with Earthlings without formality.
Seol Jihu did not lose his smile. He wanted to say Haramark was a thousand times better than Eva, but he couldn’t flip the table before the dishes were even set.
“There’s what I did as well… Ah.”
Charlotte Aria abruptly asked while fanning herself with her hand.
“I heard you had a very close relationship with Teresa Hussey.”
“She helped me both physically and emotionally.”
“From what I hear, Teresa Hussey seems to give you special treatment…”
Expecting her to ask, ‘So why did you come to Eva?’, Seol Jihu prepared his answer. However, what followed was a completely unexpected question.
“Since you mentioned my beauty, I have gotten curious about your real intention. Right, what did you think when you saw her?”
“Did you not say you lost your train of thought at my beauty? Did you say the same thing when you saw Teresa Hussey?”
Seol Jihu barely held back from saying, ‘What?’ Although she phrased it better, wasn’t she basically asking, ‘Who do you like more, me or Teresa Hussey?’
However, Seol Jihu was unfazed by the sudden question and answered without hesitation.
“When I first met Princess Teresa Hussey in Haramark, I don’t believe I said those words.”
He wasn’t lying. After all, he wasn’t in any situation to say something like that when he first met Teresa. He only felt a strong attraction to her.
“Is that true?”
However, Charlotte Aria, who did not know the circumstance of Teresa Hussey and Seol Jihu’s meeting, twinkled her eyes.
“I beg your pardon, but it is true.”
“Really? Is it really true?”
Her manner of speech suddenly changed. Her tone also went up. Although Seol Jihu’s reaction wasn’t what she expected, his lack of hesitation in answering seemed to have made her happy.
“I can ask Unni, you know~”
“You’re welcome to.”
Though he felt like he was digging his own grave, now that he already said it, Seol Jihu went all out.
