The Emperor’s Daughter Chapter 109
109 The Two Crown Princes
Prince Gladiolus bowed down in front of me. He took my right hand and kissed its back. I was stunned with his sudden gesture.
But then in a second, a wind passed by me. In an instant my hand that was held by prince Gladiolus was snatched away. I look at my side and I see Regaleon, dressed in his princely attire of black and silver. He held my hand possessively.
"I think we haven't been introduced before." Regaleon said with a cold tone, looking intently at the young man in front of me. "I am crown prince Regaleon Yosef Astley of Grandcrest. And fianc of the third princess of Alvannia, princess Alicia."Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
If seems to be a normal introduction, but if you look at Regaleon further the translation would be ‘I am princess Alicia's future husband, so f*ck off.'
I giggled internally, knowing Regaleon too well.
Prince Gladiolus stood his ground, even with Regaleon emitting intimidating aura towards him.
"It is nice to meet you, prince Regaleon." Prince Gladiolus smiled brightly. He extended his hand as a gesture. "I am the crown prince of Jennova, Gladiolus Ascoff Sinclair."
Regaleon gauged him intently. After a few seconds, he took prince Gladiolus extended hand and shook it.
"Nice to meet you too." Regaleon replied, also displaying a curt smile. "This is the first time we have met."
Regaleon means that even though Gladiolus is a crown prince of the country of Jennova, he never showed his face to social gatherings, which is important as a member of the royal family.
"It is because I don't attend formal events or parties that often. And I don't get out of my country that much." Prince Gladiolus replied. "Jennova isn't like Grandcrest. I need to work hard for my people to have something to eat and roofs above them, to shelter them from the cold."
Tension was arising between the two crown princes. Thay are still holding each other's hand, I bet they are gripping each other now.
"What brings you here in Alvania, prince Gladiolus?" I asked to ease up the tension. It was my turn now to snatch away Regaleon's hand from prince Gladiolus.
"Please, you can call me Gladi." Prince Gladiolus said with a smile.
"Ah, okay." I smiled awkwardly. "Gladi then. You can call me Alicia."
Gladiolus smiled brightly when I called him by his nick name. By that time I felt Regaleon's arm encircle my waist protectively and pulled me closer to him.
"I am also here to meet my faincee." Galdiolus answered my question. "Your father, king Edward, has also formed a political marriage with my country. I am here to take her back to Jennova and proceed with our marriage."
"Oh, is that so." I said. This was news to me. I never thought that father had that kinf of relationship with Jennova. I have been away for two years now, so I guess there are some news I do not know of.
"I am planning to stay here until the festivities in the capital is over." Gladiolus said. "I will be looking forward to your grand parade, prince Regaleon."
"I won't let you down, prince Gladiolus." Regaleon smirked.
"Well then, I won't be taking your time. I am sure you are tired from your long journey." I said.
"It is nice meeting you again, Alicia." Gladiolus said nodded his head.
"To you too, Gladi." I replied.
Gladiolus and his party walked passed us and left.
I looked at Regaleon curiously. He was wearing a serious face.
"Come, walk with me." Regaleon took my hand.
"Okay." I replied.
I gestured Tricia to stay behind for now.
Regaleon and I walked hand in hand in the royal garden. Flowers are in full bloom now.
We have been walking for a few minutes now. Regaleon has been silent all that time. I sneek a peek at him and he was wearing a serious face. I didn't dare to talk first.
"The crown prince of Jennova, I know you noticed." Regaleon said.
"Hmm." I nodded, knowing what he ment. "He is a descendant of the royal family of Atlantia, like me."
"I don't trust him." Regaleon said. "The first time I laid my eyes on him, I have a feeling he is up to no good."
This must be the sixth sense of a man that I could never understand. Because when I was with prince Gladiolus, I felt different. I felt warm and cozy inside, like we have known each other for a long time. He felt like family.
"Lili, promise me to be on guard from him." Regaleon said to me. We stopped walking and he looked at my eyes, waiting for my answer.
"Okay." I promised.
"He will also be staying here inside the palace. There will be times that you could bump into each other while I am not around." Regaleon said. "I am worried."
"Are you jealous?" I giggled. "You know that you are the only one for me." I teased.
Regaleon smiled at last. He was being serious since meeting Gladiolus.
"Yeah I am a little jealous. What will you do about it?" Regaleon asked.
He is being playful and I love it. My playful Leon.
I gestured him to lean down slightly. Seeing me, Regaleon leaned closely. I hook my arms around his neck, pulling him close to me. Then I planted a kiss on his soft sweet lips.
Once I felt his lips in mine, I slowly nibbled them. Playfully, I bit his lower lip gently.
"Hmm." I hear him moan after I bit him.
This gave me courage to stick out my tongue in search for his. I found his tongue and hooked them with mine.
Regaleon's arm now encircled my waist. His hands lingers upwards towards my nape. His touch sends electricty, jolting my whole body awake.
After a while we part our lips. The both of us are panting, catching our breaths.
"Hmm. I liked that." Regaleon whispered to my ear, his hot breath tickling me. He smiled seductively. "So that's how you repay me when you make me jealous. But I warn you, make me jealous again and it won't stop with only kissing." He teased.
My cheeks started to burn with what he just said. It made me a little embarrassed, remembering our intimate times together.
"But Alicia seriously, be careful around him." Regaleon was serious again. "He also uses magic. And I am sure he has much more experince than you, doubled with his royal blood line. I am sure his magic abilities are stronger."
"I understand." I replied. "I won't put my guard down, I promise."
Regaleon embraced me in his arms. "If only we can bypass the parade. I would take you away from here and bring you to Grandcrest immediately."
"I know." I hugged him back.
I also want to be with him even longer. Am I being too greedy?
