Flame Kingdom – 19.3

(Young Bride’s Marital Vow)


“………………..”

“………………”

“… I’m tired.”

“… So am i…”

The two people sighed together. After that, they had the same argument for a whole thirty minutes. –

“… Anyway, Sonia-sama, in other words, you’re going to Tera with me no matter what, is that correct?”

“That’s right.”

“However… There’s no palace in Tera to welcome someone like you, a princess, you know that?”

At best, there was Erika house, but that was only at the level of a large residence, not on the level of a palace where royal stay. Or rather, it was curious even for Kota that Erika stays in such a house despite being the Elder Sister of a Queen.

“I don’t mind, you know? As long I could live with Kota-sama…”

It was Kota who sighed hearing that answer…

“I understand… Well then, Sonia-sama, from now on, please treat me well…”

“… Is it okay?”

“About what?”

“Emm… About me accompanying you…”

“… Even if I said no, you would still come, yes?”

Resignation was essential in life… And when it comes to power balance, Kota could not do anything if the daughter of a King had wished herself. At first glance, political marriage tends to be associated with woman repression, but even so, it was difficult for a man too… After all, the man had to take care of the wife they didn’t want either… For Kota, as a man, he had the right to choose as well…

“… Still, Sonia-sama, in the end, you’re still too young. That’s why marriage is something too early for you…”

“Is that so?”

“That is what I thought too… That is why… Let see, how about think of this as a ‘bride training’?”

Fortunately, Carlos said it was okay if they stayed as fiancee for now. Kota makes use of that pledge…

“Why not, call it a wife training?”

“… Please forgive me…”

Somehow, comparatively, the seriousness was…

“Though I feel disagree with you asking for forgiveness… But well, I understand… Let us do just that for now…”

Having said so, she smiled…

“However, please stop calling me ‘Sonia-sama’… Please call me Sonia…”

“No, to call royalty like that is…”

“I am your fiancee before being a royalty…”

“No no no, that should be reversed no?”

“It doesn’t matter…”

She then leans her body forward toward Kota’s chest. Kota was speechless at her behavior…

“… Now then, Kota-sama…”

“…”

“… Kota-sama!”

“… F-Fine, I understand! I won’t call you with -sama anymore! But I will use -san! This is my limit, Sonia-san!”

Hearing Kota words, Sonia inflated her cheek… But she was a smart child… She pulled back her leaned body and smiled…

“… Fine then… It seems I would be disliked if I force myself here…”

Saying so…

“I pray that we would become a happily married couple. I pray for our relationship entwined like a branch of trees…”

After saying that, more than before, she smiled more beautiful…

“I hope to spend my time forever, with you… my dear, Demon Lord.”

“… I agree…”

Despite being ten years old…

“I will take care of you carefully…”

Sonia had managed to make Kota feel embarrassed with the situation they were in, and her beautiful smile was something Kota could not forget…
