Her unguilty attitude was maybe because she became loose from the alcohol.
Her point is above average to be able to be lively drunk.
It’s still a few years until Emma could drink alcohol, but she certainly wanted to drink the night away with the young lady in front of her someday.

When Emma was thinking so, the waiter offered her a cloth to wipe the wine drops.
When she looked at her feet after thanking the waiter, she found a stain on the carpet.

This stain would be hard to come off unless it was dealt with right away.
Today’s dress is luckily the waterproof prototype product, with Violet’s thread blended in.

Anyhow, the carpet looked miserable because all the wine was spilled.
Emma was absorbed in her struggle with the stains on the carpet for a while, then…


…just as I thought, Francesca hasn’t done anything that should be punished.

She just drank too much alcohol faithfully to her instinct.
She has unceasingly made blunders from alcohol even when she has become a member of society.
The still young Francesca is not guilty… probably.

Someone also said about compensation for the dress or the like, but in the first place, there’s no stain on her dress that was made of durable Emma silk combined with Violet’s thread, so it’s unnecessary.

Emma gently supports Francesca, who has been keeping her head down and trembling.
You wouldn’t think about other people’s business when you made drunk blunders.
Maybe she had been drunk every year and troubling others.
But right now, she is trembling and reflecting on herself, so she will control the amount from next year, right.

If she really wants to drink lots, I will invite her to our house and let her drink as much as she likes. Emma can’t drink until a few years later, but she wants to secure a valuable drinking buddy candidate.

“Francesca-sama? You were just a little drunk, right.
As you can see, my dress is fine, so I don’t need compensation or anything.
Is Francesca-sama‘s dress alright?”

The only kind words for Francesca inside this party venue are said by the girl she just bullied a few minutes ago.

Francesca accidentally saw a deep scar on Emma’s right cheek when Emma helped her.

She also heard a rumor that Emma got attacked by a monster when she was socializing with the Second Prince.
There’s also a rumor that she used the wounds to press the Prince for an engagement.

But the girl in front of Francesca definitely wouldn’t do that.

How can she be so kind? She can’t help but feels so embarrassed.

The baptism has been passed on among young ladies of the First Prince’s faction.
It became her job starting three years ago, and at first, she thought she didn’t want to do it.
But if she didn’t do it, her father’s position would worsen.

Unwillingly, she did the baptism and acted as the superior in nobility caste.
She even gets young ladies who are called her “entourage”.

She is treated as a hero in the First Prince’s faction and misunderstood by everyone.

That she is someone of value.

The really valuable one is Emma Stuart right before her eyes, the delicate younger girl with a deep scar on her face.

She didn’t get frightened from speaking with the Prince and protected someone like her.

She is worried about me many times more than my entourage, who has been gone since Emma’s first reinforcement came.

“I… I’m sorr… y.
I have done a lot of mean things to you…”

Francesca apologizes to Emma with tears in her eyes.
Even when she is blamed for the baptism, do not ever acknowledge it.
Don’t apologize.
She has been told that strongly when she took over the baptism, but it doesn’t matter now.
She wanted to apologize because she knows that she did something terrible.

“Francesca-sama? Please do not mind it.
Didn’t you already apologized immediately when the wine splashed into my dress?”

While wiping Francesca’s tears gently, Emma said softly, but still can be heard clearly by everyone. Emma said so for Francesca’s words that sound perfunctory and easy to misunderstand as an apology.

“I, how… can I apologize to you… I’m really sorry.”

Francesca bows from the bottom of her heart.

She is still a girl who can’t drink alcohol.
Her first time in the capital, and her first party, she must be scared.

Emma mutters, “Apology…”

“Then, Francesca-sama! Please be my friend.
Be my first friend the royal capital.
Please show me around the academy.
Is there any delicious cake shop on our way home? Let’s go eat together?”

Emma holds Francesca’s hands excitedly.

Ah… This girl… is an angel.
She is such an angel that it’s strange there are no wings on her back.

Francesca’s inner voice is what everyone in the venue thinks.

George and William guess what Emma’s thinking and have lukewarm expressions.
It seems like Emma has conquered not only tea parties but also high society.
