But even Aeris’s intervention was ignored as Chiharu opened the door.
“Lord Aeris! Oh, who might you be?”
The person on the other side of the door was the fifth princess. But when her shining, beautiful face caught Chiharu, she looked very confused. Chiharu spoke without emotion.
After a second of silence, the princess’s servants began to talk.
“How dare you speak to the princess with that voice!”
“This is why I don’t like humans.”
Maki was annoyed as she listened in the back. However, it was clear that Chiharu didn’t want her to join them.
“So you don’t want to come inside?”
Chiharu asked. The fifth princess managed to reply.
“This is Lord Aeris’s room. What authority do you have to be here?”
“Authority? I was called here as Aeris’s guest. I have his permission. Now come in.”
Of course, she had no such thing. However, the princess and her servants had no way of knowing this. The men behind her were overwhelmed as well. And so they all entered the room quietly. Then they saw Aeris standing awkwardly in the back.
The fifth princess tried to run to him, but Chiharu stopped her with a raise of her hand.
The princess couldn’t help but stop. Chiharu was angry. And that was a rare thing. Maki clenched her fist in front of her chest.
“That’s not where you should go. Go that way.”
She said as she pointed to Aeris’s bed room.
The princess’s face reddened. She looked to be in her twenties. But to be honest, both Chiharu and Maki looked older than her. But Chiharu did not allow the blushing woman to phase her, and she opened the door without hesitation.
“You don’t want to?”
And so the fifth princess took a step into the room and gasped.
“What’s all this noise?”
“If anything, it is shameless for someone like you, who has never been married, to come in here.”
Now that the fight had begun, Chiharu shrugged her shoulders and closed the door.
“Chiharu, wouldn’t it be more entertaining if you left it open?”
“But then she won’t be able to get changed.”
Maki was enjoying this now, but Chiharu was not in the mood. She was still angry.
There was a lot of noise coming from the bedroom for a while, but then the door finally opened, and out came the fifth princess and her servants. She was soon followed by the first princess. In human years, she would be a little past thirty, which made her look quite nice standing next to Aeris. She was very beautiful as she stood there with her hair tied loosely to the side. Of course, she was wearing clothes.
“Aeris. You are quite cruel. Not only do you rarely return, but you kept me waiting so long.”
She said sweetly. Maki thought she could hear the sound of a vein bursting on Chiharu’s head.
“Princess. You go too far. No matter how many times you request it, I cannot oblige you. You must search for someone else to spend the rest of your life with.”
Aeris said. He sounded both annoyed and polite.
“Sister. Let us leave for now. I do not like to think what will happen if father learns of this.”
“And what is that to me? Love should be free. I doubt anyone takes interest in my affairs at this point. Even father said that I should do as I please.”
Chiharu just opened the door without saying a word. But the first princess’s mouth curled with irony.
“Get out, is it? Don’t you know that I’m a princess?”
Chiharu kept her silence and opened the door even wider.
The first princess turned to look at Aeris.
“I’m sure you’ll be staying for a while. We’ll have time to talk later.”
She smiled and then left the room.
The fifth princess said goodbye to Aeris and then frantically left the room.
Chiharu slammed the door shut and turned around.
The others suddenly felt quite nervous.
