Chapter 123 — Snow White in a Dark Fairy Tale (51)
Didn’t know how long has passed after that, but a series of blood-curdling scream could be heard from the King’s palace, and although the Knights outside guarded the palace from a distant, they can’t help but trembled in horror severely.
In front of a magnificent palace, one of the maid who was newly appointed to take care of the prince came over with a plate of various fruits. The other maid that was guarding outside the gate asked in a low voice, “This… hasn’t the Princess Consort just finished her lunch?”
The maid who was holding the plate smiled, “Yeah, but this is the Prince’s most beloved ah, and I think this consort is much more interesting than those noble daughters in Wangdu, she doesn’t put on airs at all.”
The maid wanted to talk more but then decided to stop, after all she still didn’t know if the Prince would let her say these kind of things.
The maid entered with fruits on her hand happily. When she saw the girl sitting in a daze, she smiled slightly, “Princess Consort, the fruits that you asked for are here.”
This sentence brought Shen Mubai back to her consciousness. She looked over at the plump grapes and sweet coconuts and gulped down a mouthful of saliva involuntarily, “Thank you ah, but I’m not your Prince’s consort.”
The maid lightly laughed and teased, “I have worked in the palace for a long time, and I have never seen the Prince set his heart on someone like this before.”
After saying this, she paid attention to the young girl’s look, waiting for her to ask what’s the difference (of how the Prince treated her than the others).
The young girl issued an ‘oh’, and then she started picking on the nearest plump grape, eating and savoring it inside her mouth, “Maybe the abducted person wasn’t the same like me.”
The maid, “…”
Shen Mubai ate a few more grapes before stopping, as if she had recalled something, she asked, “Do you know what happened in Alessia these past few days?”
The maid’s face showed hesitance, “This…”
Shen Mubai understood just by taking a glance at her, “Your Prince told you not to tell me ah.”
The maid hurried to say, “It’s not like that, Your Highness, I just really don’t know.”
Right at this time, someone walked inside the palace, his face was wreathed in a warm smile like the sun. He said in his magnetic voice, “Let me be the one to tell you, dear Fujiana.”
When Shen Mubai saw him, she remembered that day when he launched a sneak attack on her, and she felt gloomy all over, “When will you let me go back?”
He signaled the maid to withdraw. Arlenweiss was wearing his prince attire, so he looked extremely dazzling and charming, he blinked his eyes to entice the person in front of him, “Fujiana, don’t you like it here?”
Shen Mubai remembered the various delicious food she had eaten in the past few days she had been here, and it was practically impossible for her to go against her conscience, thus she diverted the topic of conversation, “How about Snow White? How’s she doing in Alessia?”
She suddenly remembered that he wasn’t she, so Shen Mubai suddenly felt sad, she still couldn’t accept that the ever adorable and gentle Snow White was a man, but when she thought of that perverted old King, she can’t help but be concerned for Snow White.
Arlenweiss smiled slightly, “You really care about him, but rest assured, the Allesia right now isn’t the same like before.”
After hearing this sentence, Shen Mubai felt an ominous premonition, then she heard Arlenweiss continued, “The King died, and Snow White, who was supposed to be a prince, had recovered his identity and inherited the throne. Speaking of which, even though I realized what he wanted to do at that time, but I never once thought that he was a man.” Speaking until this point, he laughed lightly, “No wonder he showed such hostility when I tried to get close to you.”
The maid called Baibai “王子妃” which I assume can be either wife or concubine, and decided on ‘wife’ since he supposedly had to bring back a wife from Alessia… right? (。ヘ°) So, I’m not really sure of what her position in Roentzent was. I might change it after I translate further. (・・；)
Changed it to Princess Consort.
I think what really imprisoned Baibai there was just the delish food tho… (≖ᴗ≖✿)
