I took a quick detour and I headed where she was.
“Mimosa, I have not seen you in a long time”
“… It has been a long time, Iris”
Her greeting was just the usual polite way for close friends.
…… Just because this place is an official event, neither myself nor mimosa is speaking in a different way than usual.
“Nice to meet you, Ms. Iris”
From the side, a man suddenly interrupted.
Curly black hair, slender eyes, and a fine voice were the characteristics of the man.
Although I seemed to not be able to control my discomfort and made wrinkles between my eyebrows for a moment at his unbridled behavior, I pushed it aside and smiled instead.
The moment the man called out to me, the happy expression started to fall out quietly from the face of Mimosa.
Even the color from her eyes started to fade.
I saw it from the side and my anxiety passed away.
… I never saw Mimosa’s expression like that.
“I am sorry, but you are … …?”
“Oh, did not you hear from Mimosa? I am her fiance, the eldest son of the Earl of Rubelia’s house, Dan Von Rubelia.”
While interchanging gestures as a play, he said so.
Since this is an official place, we cannot talk to a boy until that person talks to us…. That is to say that he suddenly pointed a spear to me, when he greeted us … and everyone in this place is trying to pry information about any possible scandal at any house, so there were a lot of things out of place when he greeted us, he should have followed the procedure..
But those thoughts blew away at his last words.
…… Mimosa’s, fiance? He is? ! Oh poor Mimosa, this is worse than I have imagined!.
I do not want to say that he is not good as her fiance, that he does not deserve her, but honestly, the first impression was not very good.
“Oh … You seem to be the same as Mimosa depicted you, my name is Iris, Lana Almeria, I was with Mimosa during my school days. Thank you for taking care of her”
“Iris, I am very sorry, I have to go to present my greetings, so I’ll be around here …”
As if trying to say something Mimosa uttered some words but instantly closed her mouth.
“Oh, yeah … That’s right, I am sorry I have taken your time.”
As soon as I say that, she turns her back and starts walking away.
Dan was shrugging his shoulders for a moment with a bitter smile, but immediately walked side by side next to her.
If it is the first official event since the engagement is made, the usual procedure is to present their greetings together to the people, especially it has to be the two of them… but she seems to have been strangely opposed to it as she abruptly went away.
It’s as if she doesn’t want to talk to me.
Thinking that far, I leaked a bitter smile.
Is that normal?
If I think about it, she just recently got engaged. But how much importance would it have to talk with him when she is present even though I was her closest friend?
I really do not feel there is anything confidential that I shouldn’t be present, and I think that Mimosa ‘s heart has not accepted this engagement either.
Having said that, I agree that her behavior today was strange.
Everyone will be nervous at the first official event with his / her fiance.
I’m no longer the largest topic of conversation in the kingdom as when I that thing happened with the second prince, I understand if she was nervous and cannot calm down when chatting with other ladies, I was also like that, but… this is strange.
Let ‘s talk to Mimosa when we’re alone slowly … this time I concluded that this engagement is suspicious, I went to the back of the hall.
When thinking about Mimosa, the flowing music stopped and the royal family appeared from the back.
