d decide on her own.

That was why Rosé chose telling a story to convince Flitta, which might arouse her interest.
And through that, Flitta decided that she wanted to balanced her diet on her own.

Did the child understand Rosé’s heart?

The child continued to scoop up her pea soup even as her cheeks puffed out.
Rosé saw that Flitta had finished third of her soup, and gazed at her warmly, belatedly straightening her back.

“…!”

As soon as Rosé raised her head, she made eye contact with Haven, who was looking at me.
She instantly froze on her spot.

How long have he been watching?

His blue eyes were fixated on her, and for her, it was not just a casual glance, but an intense fixation of attention.

He didn’t care that Rosé was flustered and didn’t know what to do.

Despite the fact that the butler, the head maid, and even the nanny felt something strange and were perplexed.

“… The Pea Fairy.”

After a while of silence, he opened his mouth and blurted those words.
The words that came out were unexpected which made the rest, excluding Rosé baffled.

Rosé felt her face heat up at the ‘pea fairy’ that came out of Haven’s mouth.
She thought that she whispered it in a low voice, but it seemed that Haven heard it so well.

But he said nothing more afterward.
He just ate quietly.

Nonetheless, Rosé kept her blushing face down until Flitta finished eating her breakfast.

“….
Pfftt.”

Haven let out a small laugh while reviewing the report.
The butler who was standing right next to him, and was pouring tea was startled.
The wind whistled and the teapot swayed, making the tea on the desk.

“Ah! I’m sorry, Your Highness.”

“It’s fine.”

Haven brushed off the butler’s hasty apology, then returned to what he was doing.
The butler finished pouring the tea and glanced carefully at Haven.

“… Why, do you have anything to say to me?”

Haven’s blue eyes, which were fixed on the paperwork, turned to the butler.
It was a cold gaze, no, to be more precise, it was different than usual.
However, the butler didn’t care and smiled, and then he said something out of the blue.

“The princess’s face has brightened a lot.”

“….”

Haven’s eyebrows narrowed while looking at the butler, he seemed to be confused.
The butler smiled and continued.

“Just judging how she looks early this morning.
Haha, how surprised I was to see the Princess in that appearance…”

Haven listened to the butler with a nonchalant expression and lifted the teacup in front of him.
The faint scent of tea passed through his nose.
Was that why? His expression, which had always been stiff, relaxed a little.

A light breeze came in through the open window.
His undisturbed, neatly combed hair swayed on his forehead.

He took a sip of his tea and cast his gaze out his window.
Even though it was broad daylight, the sky was dark.
The clouds approaching from afar were black, as if they were driving rain at any time.

Tak.

And as if to prove Haven’s prediction correct, raindrops fell on the windowsill right after.

“Oh my, it looks like it’s about to rain.”

The butler stopped talking, looked out the window, and hurriedly moved to close the window.


“Leave it, Yanik.”

But just as the butler was about to close the window, Haven opened his mouth to stop him.
Then he put down his teacup, got up, and went to the window.
As his loyal butler approached his master, he hurriedly stepped aside.

Haven stood where the butler stood aside, staring out the window.
He thought it was only raindrops that was falling, but soon, the raindrops became thicker.

Shhwaaa.

Soon after, the rain started pouring heavily.
Haven watched silently as the gardeners and servants outside ran to and fro to get shelter from the rain.
Until then, his blue eyes had been calm and unwavering.

“…”

However, the moment a woman entered his vision, the atmosphere in Haven suddenly changed.
To the point that even the butler, who was standing a couple of steps away from him, flinched.

She was that woman.

She is his child’s exclusive maid.

He narrowed his brows when he saw Rosé staggering with basket full of laundry in her hands.
Notwithstanding everyone took shelter from the rain, it felt funny that she was along carrying the large basket.

“…Tsk.”

Contrary to what he thought was funny, Haven’s expression became colder.
He looked down at the woman with her arms full of a basket that seemed to be heavier than her own body, and clicked his tongue.

“….
Your Highness?”

After reading Haven’s disapproval gaze, the butler cautiously poked his head out the window with a puzzled expression.
However, the butler’s question was not resolved.
In the meantime, Rosé’s figure had disappeared into the building.

“…?”

Leaving behind the confused butler, Haven returned to his seat.
He picked up the paper he put aside.

The blue eyes that were scanning the type on the paper were twisted.
He madly threw away the papers, then opened his mouth to the butler.

“Who is in charge of the division of duties among the maids?”
