The Emperor’s Daughter Chapter 89


89 The Calm Before The Storm
"Lili, will you marry me." Regaleon said with calm eyes.

"Y-Yes. Yes Leon, I will marry you." I said with a smile, happy tears flowing down my face.

Regaleon's smile lit up more. He took the diamond ring from the box and gently reached out to my left hand. Slowly and carefully he slid the diamond ring into my ring finger.

"It fits perfectly." Regaleon said. He raised my hand and kissed it gently. This action made me blush.

Regaleon stood slowly and not long he was towering in front of me. He caressed my cheek gently.

"You are now officially my fiancee." Regaleon smiled at me. Leaning down he found my lips and gave me a sweet kiss. "I love you so much, Lili."

"And I love you." I have him a sweet smile.

My heart was thumping loudly inside my chest. I am feeling so emotional right now. Regaleon gave me a quick hug.

"It's getting late, you need to rest." Regaleon said. "I am afraid that my self control won't last long either." He chuckled lightly.

I hang my head in confusion.

"With you wearing such a sexy and thin night gown, I am afraid that my self control will break any minute now." Regaleon said with a shy smile.

We have been snuggling the whole time and it was only now that I realized that my dress can make Regaleon's desire flare up. I can feel a blush creep on my face.

"I love our cuddling, but I can feel my control will slip if we stay like this." Regaleon said. "But if you want to continue further, I can oblige." He gave me a wolfish grin.

"U-Umm... you might also be tired after the work this day. So let's retire for the night." I smiled awkwardly.

Regaleon started laughing. "Okay, I understand. Hahaha."

Regaleon gave me a quick peck on my cheek. "Sleep well my love."

"Good night, Leon." I smiled at him.

Then he stood on the ledge of the veranda and vanished into the night.

I was still standing at the veranda in a daze. I raised my hand up and looked at the diamond ring in my hand. It was sparkling under the moonlight and blended beautifully under the night sky full of stars.

In another place inside the palace, Veronica and Elizabeth were inside the bedroom.

"Big sister, have you found a man that will defile Alicia?" Elizabeth was asking.

Veronica was sitting at the couch deep in thought.

"I haven't yet." Veronica replied.

"But the engagement party is the day after tomorrow." Elizabeth said flustered. "As mother instructed, you have to search for a man that can defame Alicia as soon as possible. We need to shatter her innocence in public so that she cannot marry the crown prince Regaleon."

"I am thinking of a much better plan." Veronica smirked.

"What do you mean sister?" Elizabeth asked puzzled.

"I have a much better plan that definitely make me crown prince Regaleon's fiancee." Veronica said. She was playing with a strand of her hair and smiled.


"If you have a much better plan then tell me sister." Elizabeth said. "I will surely help you."

"Thank you sister." Veronica replied. "If I manage to execute this plan successfully. I will surely be the one to marry the crown prince."

The two sisters had wicked smiles.
