Chapter 75: The Banquet Begins
The royal family, the banquet.
The arrival of the king attracted a lot of attention.
Even Monn looked over.
Soon, a familiar figure appeared in his eyes.
It was Princess Cheryl who had brought them to the banquet venue and disappeared.
Now, she had changed out of her silver light armor and put on a dazzling ice-blue gown.
The tight-fitting dress showed off her waist, which could not even be grasped by one hand.
It attracted the attention of most of the noble men.
Some of them even had the courage to step forward and tried to fight for the right to dance with the princess, but she decisively refused.
She spoke straightforwardly, just like the valiant temperament on her body.
She put her hands on her waist and scanned the entire scene, as if she was looking for something.
All the men who had been scanned by her straightened their backs, hoping to leave a good impression on the charming princess.
Cheryl seemed to see something, her eyes lit up.
Then she picked up their gowns and walked quickly to one direction.
The men in the same direction all looked expectantly.
They hoped that they were the lucky ones.
However, there was no exception.
Cheryl ignored all the men.
They could only watch as she walked to a man dressed in the uniform of a Orthodox Church.
She bowed slightly and with a bright smile on her face, she extended an invitation, “Cardinal Monn, may I have the honor to dance with you later?”
She wanted to use this opportunity to thoroughly probe into Monn’s strength.
And the noble men behind her saw that the eldest princess, whom they regarded as a goddess, actually invited a cardinal to dance with her. Their hearts were filled with shock and jealousy.
At this moment, Monn’s calm voice suddenly sounded, “Sorry, I don’t know how to dance.”
When he said this, the male nobles behind her were stunned.
Rejected? Rejected? ?
He actually rejected such a beautiful princess’ invitation to dance with him? ?
At this moment, they couldn’t help but feel puzzled, jealous, and unwilling.
The opportunity to be intimate with the eldest princess up close was actually rejected! !
Even Princess Cheryl was stunned when she heard Monn’s rejection, and there was even a trace of doubt in her heart.
She wondered if she had heard wrongly.
It must be known that there was no a single young and talented person in the entire capital who did not want to have a romantic encounter with her.
However, there was no a single person who could have this opportunity.
In the end, when she sent out an invitation to Monn, he decisively rejected it?
Cheryl, who had experienced the feeling of being rejected for the first time, smiled bitterly in her heart.
However, she did not give up. She continued to smile and said, “It’s fine. I can teach you.”
Her refusal to give up made all the men present pound their chests and stomp their feet.
Seeing Princess Cheryl continue to invite him, Monn couldn’t even.
He really didn’t know how to dance. He was afraid that he would step on Princess Cheryl’s feet and caused them to swell, so he refused.
However, for some reason, Cheryl insisted on dancing with him.
Just as he was about to refuse again…
Heidi, who was still hanging on his arm, spoke up.
“No need to trouble, Her Highness. I will teach my Monn to dance.”
Monn,”? ? ?”
Since when did he become someone else’s?
Cheryl heard the voice and turned her eyes to Heidi, who she had been ignoring.
She asked in confusion, “Aren’t you engaged to my second brother? What are you looking like now?”
She looked at the place where Monn’s arms were wrapped around her chest.
Heidi didn’t care. Instead, she rubbed his arms against her chest and said to Cheryl, “I have unilaterally announced the annulment of the engagement with your brother.”
Cheryl responded with an “Oh” and didn’t have any further reaction.
She had already thought of the annulment of his second brother’s marriage.
So she wasn’t surprised.
But she was still quite concerned about Heidi stopping her from dancing with Monn.
She continued, “So you’re engaged to Monn?”
“No.” Heidi said bluntly.
Cheryl continued, “Then he’s not yours yet. Leave the teaching of Monn to me, the master.”
As she spoke, Cheryl hugged one of Monn’s arms.
A feeling that was completely different from Heidi’s was transmitted to Monn’s mind.
Seeing that Monn was sandwiched between two beautiful girls, Saintess Ace, who had endured for a long time, finally could not hold it in any longer.
Her face was dark, and her voice seemed to come from the depths of the abyss.
“Each and every one of you, what exactly do you want to do to the Cardinal of the Orthodox Church! !”
Ace’s voice attracted the attention of the entire banquet.
When the crowd saw the cardinal sandwiched in the middle by the three most beautiful women in the capital, all sorts of expressions appeared on their faces. It was a very interesting sight.
When the three women saw that they had become the focus of the banquet, they immediately panicked and hurriedly let go Monn’s arms, feeling a little shy for a moment.
On the other hand, Monn’s face was calm, and he even had a doubt in his heart.
Did every woman have a unique fragrance?
In just a short while, three different fragrances surged into his nose and mixed together.
Seeing his eldest daughter was also in the center of the spotlight, Aldrich did not say anything. Instead, he was a little happy to see this scene.
He was just worried about how to rope in Cardinal Monn.
Perhaps his eldest daughter would be a breakthrough.
However, in order to take care of his eldest daughter, who was still thin-skinned, he coughed a few times and attracted everyone’s attention.
“Today’s banquet is mainly to deal with werewolves, so I suddenly want everyone to gather together. At the same time, I also want to listen to everyone’s thoughts.”
“It just so happens that Orthodox Church envoy from St. Servant, has arrived at the banquet venue. The person in charge of Saint Servant’s region can have a detailed chat with Cardinal Monn.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, please don’t underestimate Cardinal Monn. His strength is likely to stun everyone’s eyes.”
Hearing the king’s words, the nobles below all became curious.
To be praised so much by the king, he must have something extraordinary.
But why was such a powerful person just a cardinal?
This question instantly appeared in everyone’s minds.
“Alright, the banquet officially begins!”
Aldrich casually had a few words and introduced Monn at the same time.
Then he announced the beginning of the banquet.
Suddenly the lights dimmed.
A beautiful song came from the center of the dance floor.
The nobles walked to the center of the dance floor with their female partners and started dancing.
At this moment, Saintess Ace, the Princess Cheryl, and Heidi Frances all looked at Monn.
