There are many candidates from every noble family.
But only one person succeded to the position that every lady looked up to.
Mavros Petalouda. The first daughter of Grand Duke Petalouda.
Since then, many ladies became her enemy, some became an ally.
I sighed as I drag a lifeless body down the dark hallway of our mansion.
'this is the fifth this day.' I thought and finally reached a particular room and put the body inside.
"You already know what to do," I told to the person inside the room and walked out while wiping the bloodstains.
Ever since the list of the candidates for the position of the crowned prince was issued my life is always in great danger, as the top candidate I am mentally and physically prepared. I'm sure that they will not just target me but also everyone close to me, especially my younger twin sisters.
"Mavros. What are you doing here in the middle of the night?" a familiar manly voice asked, I turned around and saw him.
"Father.", I bowed "Assassins." I simply said and continued walking.
I don't have the best relationship with my father because I'm his daughter from his first wife, my biological mother was accidentally killed by the current empress when she was invited inside the palace. But it doesn't sit right to me, the only reason why I became the top candidate was also because of the current empress who 'accidentally' killed my mother.
I reached my room and entered.
"My lady! I'm glad you're fine." Wendy said with a teary eye, I gave her a warm smile and pat her head.
"Of course I am," I said and walk past her, I threw myself to the bed and cuddled the blanket.
"My lady! That is unladylike!" wendy scolded but I didn't pay any attention to her as my eyes start to close, before I could completely fall asleep I felt another blanket wrapped around my body.
"......ady....my lady...please wake up." wendy's voice woke me up.
"Huh..? Why?" I asked her with my eyes closed, she continued shaking me until I finally give up and sat on my bed.
"Get ready quick! The crowned prince is going to visit you," she said and pulled me out of the comfy bed.
'Wait....did she say 'crowned prince'?'
My eyes opened and I looked at wendy.
"Are you serious?" I asked her, she nodded continuously and pulled me to the bathroom.
The strong scent of fresh roses welcomed me, I scrunched my nose and just let them do their job.
