Narration: “This is a story not long ago when Yuulin is still in the prison, when she is still not my ‘true bride’.” At his office, Reishou puts his hand under his chin and muses out loud, “My rabbit is truly excessively cute. Don’t you think that there should be a bit of propriety [/stop while she’s ahead from being so cute]?” He imagines a rabbit happily jumping around. Jun is totally speechless. He just tells Reishou that about tomorrow’s morning meeting. Reishou asks if he is going to ignore him that way. “Listen, listen..she--” Bored Reishou interrupts by saying, “Yes, yes, yes, I totally understand so skip the details. Regarding entering the palace, it has always been carried out. There’s no need for you to specially mind it.” Holding his stamp, Reishou says that he didn’t mean to press him on. “I only want to say that she is truly very cute, that’s all.” Jun sighs and says, “Yes. Yes.” Narration: “Originally, there should be no princess consort.” Walking at the hallway, a woman greets Reishou and says that he’s really early today. Reishou asks the head of the court ladies if she is doing well.
She smiles and says that there’s no problem at all. “..but because the other person whom I can talk with is only teacher and myself who helps her [Yuulin] in dealing with the trifle things at her side, I’m afraid that it is a bit boring.. Is it possible that she’ll go in the palace ahead of schedule..” Reishou says that it is because they are prioritizing and considering the safety issue that inevitably, time.. ...at any time, she can return so first do the interior affairs that can be done first.” The head of the court ladies says that it is as he ordered. “Then, at least, please enjoy your time alone with her as much as you like, Your Majesty.” Narration: “Because I have no plans of acting as the master, I have always lived in this palace. When I was young, the impression of living at the harem has always been serious and gloomy. The back figure of mother would appear in my head. At the harem, this prison, day after day, she became weaker.” Flashback: Reishou’s mother held young Reishou’s face and said, “Ah, ah, this hair and these eyes. You are really exactly the same with [/the carbon copy of] that person.” And Reishou imagines Yuulin in prison.
The door opens. Blushing Yuulin turns around to him and exclaims, “Your Majesty!? Welcome back! La ah ah!! You’re quite earlier than usual! Strange--? Usually the head of the court ladies would inform me ahead. Sorry, I’ll immediately tidy up the table!” Somewhat surprised Reishou says that it is alright, just leave it be. Yuulin refuses to do so. Seeing her putting aside some book, Reishou asks if Gen left some strange books again. Blushing Yuulin says not at all!! “These are totally not of that sort!! I have been properly studying hard.” As she put aside the books, Reishou calls out to her. She turns to him and asks, “Huh~?” Standing behind her, he asks, “Can I kiss you?” After looking surprised, Yuulin exclaims is that a return [coming back here] greeting!? “Obviously..normally, you usually won’t ask, right?” Reishou asks if it is no good. Yuulin starts looking around that he assures her that no one is around. Blushing Yuulin says that it is okay. Reishou says is that so, that’s great. And, he leans to kiss her.
Narration: “Basically, she should be an unattainable beloved person. Falling into one’s own prison. When I became aware of the contentment that this darkness had brought, I had realized that I am indeed really very similar with father the king. Because of this, all the more you should have run away.” Trembling and blushing Yuulin says, “Geez, Your- Majesty. I have no strength.. *catches breath* I’m sorry, I’m not quite used to it yet. Ah- I feel that my heart is going to jump out.” Reishou says, “No, he should be the one to apologize for he excessively like..” She asks if he meant the kiss. He says, “No, I meant you.” After looking surprised, Yuulin blushes really red and exclaims in disbelief. Reishou looks amused over her expression. He laughs and asks why she is astonished like that and at this time! Yuulin exclaims that it is because just thinking that it isn’t an act, that kind of attack..ah- don’t be so hot again, my face. Happily hugging her, Reishou says that Yuulin is really so cute that she must have a sense of propriety! Mentally screaming, Yuulin shouts what he meant by that, and treating her like a fool. Reishou chuckles and says no, not at all. Narration: “The rabbit itself ran back to the prison. No matter when, shining and sparkling, lighting up my world.”
Comment: And, that is like Reishou’s insight before she officially became a princess consort. Apparently, Reishou somewhat fears of becoming like his father and doing to Yuulin what his father did to his mother. And, of course, in contrast to when he sees her mother, Yuulin isn’t all gloomy for she really livens up and lights up his life ^^ Hehe, he obviously want someone whom he can talked with about how cute Yuulin is but too bad that Jun isn’t interested at all. It makes me wonder if the head of the court ladies was also around when his mother was at the harem. I guess for she is like Jun who isn’t interested in Gen’s gleeful expectations for Yuulin and the harem ^^ Scans by 狼花嫁吧合作汉化
