“What happened?”

“Do you have any business here?”

I looked at her with a cold expression.

Every time I saw Harris, I didn’t feel anything.
I couldn’t understand why she was so angry and what she was afraid of.

For a five-year-old, unlike me, she spoke very well for a child who didn’t have memories of the past, which was amazing.
That was all I could appreciate about her.

“Wh-What?”

“I have something to do here.
So I’ll try to go in.
We can’t make you wait any longer.”

“Where are you going?! The dresses arrive today, so of course I have to go in!”

“Why? They’re my clothes.”

“It’s not your clothes.
They’re clothes for the Grand Duke’s princess, so it’s not like you’re going to have anything!”

“Harris, you’re greedy, You probably have more clothes than me.
I can’t believe you’re being greedy for that.
But now I’m also going to try and be greedy.
Those are my clothes, so stop being greedy.”

After saying that, I approached the door.
The knights, who had not been approaching Harris until recently, opened the door with a small smile.

In case Harris ran in, they stood close to each other and created only a small space for me to enter.

“Hey, hey! Where are you going?”

But just as I couldn’t stop the running cow because I was so angry, Herace tried to jump in after me, thinking it was time.
But this time, Cecilia blocked it.

“Lady Harris, stop it.
What kind of manners does the Grand Duke’s princess have?”

“Hey!”

“The princess’ maids don’t teach you those things, do they? I’ll directly tell His Highness about this matter.”

“What? What are you talking about?”

“I just said it.
You arrived here earlier than Lady Bebe, but your manners seem to be worse than Lady Bebe.”

Unlike usual, Cecilia’s voice was firm.

“Are you threatening me, Cecilia?”

“No.
What do you mean threatening? I’m blaming your maids.
Aren’t they very useless?”

Only then did the faces behind Harris also turn red.

However, Cecilia pushed them further into a corner.

“If what I say is wrong, anyone can speak up.”

“…”

“No one is speaking up.
Then, I have no choice but to talk to His Highness.”

“Who do you think you are? Not even my maids…!”

“I am a nanny.
I am in charge of educating all the young ladies and masters in this family, except Lady Harris.
And I have the same power as a maid.
From my point of view, Lady Harris is lacking, so is there a problem with criticizing those lower than me?”

Cecilia spat out each word in an emotionless tone.

“Even so, you don’t have the right to say anything to those who are associated with me!”

“Is that so? But it’s up to the Grand Duke to judge whether Lady Harris, who has three maids yet only whines at the age of five, is good at etiquette.
And it remains to be seen whether it’s something to do with serving a child.”

“Hey…!”

“I will talk to His Highness about what happens next.
It just so happens that the Grand Duke said he would be here soon.”

Only then did Harris quickly step back.

“Dad said he’d come?”

“Yes.
If you don’t believe me, stay there.
Then the Grand Duke will welcome Lady Harris.
His daughter doesn’t even listen to her own…”

“…I’m not leaving because I’m scared of that!”

I wondered if that would work, but the effect was quite large.
Harris, who had been in a frenzy just now, took a step back.

She said she wasn’t doing this, yet she was afraid.

Only after seeing that, the knights guarding the door of the drawing room created a space, and Cecilia stood behind me.

“Cecilia… are you okay?”

“Yes.
Nothing was as effective as this.
Lady Harris doesn’t want to let the Grand Duke and the twin Young Masters know that she was like that.”

“Aren’t you like that to them as well?”

“Yes.
Now act like a sweet, cute, and lovely lady.”

I was surprised by the fact and I let out a small sigh.

“Even if others see such an appearance, they cannot easily inform the Grand Duke of this matter… I think that is more so.”

“I see.”

“Of course… I think you’re doing something similar to Allen.”

Her face hardened in an instant as if she had eaten a bitter candy.

I nodded my head loudly as I saw her like that.

“Right.
My brother… I’m sorry.
He’s a really nice person.”

Honestly, who else could be as kind as my brother?

It was then…
