Princess Doted On
Chapter 34 A Visitor from the Sky
Tiararose’s mornings were early.
As she generally always has some sort of appointment everyday, she takes her time to do her hair and prepare her dress.
Her attendant Firine also does the preparations everyday, so much that Tiararose couldn’t help but wonder when she takes rest.
“Firine. You haven’t taken even a day off, have you? It’s not good to be overexerting yourself, you know.”
“Well… Thank you for your consideration, Tiararose-sama. However, I am fine. I like to take care of you, Tiararose-sama.”
Firine said with a smile, while dressing Tiararose’s hair.
The maid found that pleasant while she was preparing the tea. To not let the body get cold in the morning, hot drinks are prepared.
Sipping on that, Tiararose thought back on what her appointment for the day is.
In the morning, a small tea party with a few noble’s daughters. And from afternoon, she was free. Days like this with half of the day off was rare so she felt like she could relax a bit.
“Firine, are the presents for the tea party ready?”
“Yes. I have prepared a very cute muffin so I am sure everyone would like it.”
She invited the daughters of 3 counts so she will be giving those to them as present when they leave. Tiararose’s sweets’ reputation was good, both in looks and in taste.
If she were to be honest, she would like to rest for a while but it hasn’t been long since she married into the country. To get used to the country, she was frequently holding tea parties.
On top of that, she also wanted to gather as much information as possible.
About how many nobles are in this country who could genuinely become Tiararose’s strength.
To be of use to Aquasteed, she was working hard to build the foundation little by little.
Although, Aquasteed on the other hand was prepared to protect her from everything.

“My, Tiararose-sama, you’re really good at making sweets, aren’t you? It is wonderful.”
“Perhaps I will try making some too soon.”
“Yes, please. The process of making them is also fun, after all.”
Such were the conversation of 4 women, including Tiararose. Their topic was also girly, being sweets and trendy dresses.
Perhaps the girls weren’t very interested by politics, as the topic never came up.
–If so, what about the fairy’s blessings?
The one who stole the sweets was the water’s fairy. She also wanted information on the fairies as much as possible. Even if it was commonplace here, Tiararose might not know of it since she came from the neighboring country.
“Everyone, have you been together with fairies ever since you were young?”
They all nodded as Tiararose asked the question.
“That’s right. It is common to receive the fairy’s blessing while you are a child. As such, it’s very common for children to play outside.”
“The fairies are outside after all. It is also healthy so I think that is wonderful.”
It seems like most people receive the blessings while they are young.
“Besides, it’s easier for a child to receive the blessing… unlike adults, they are pure, after all.”
One girl said, looking troubled as she covered her mouth with her folding fan.
That is true, they would like it more to give blessings to children who are pure and cute rather than selfish adults. The percentage of receiving the blessings after one becomes an adult decreases a lot.
–Then, I was lucky as I was blessed by the forest’s fairy.
After talking to them, she got to know that two of them received the blessing from the sea fairy and one from the sky fairy.
“Do you normally talk to the fairies about stuff?”
“Well, not really. Tiararose-sama, you don’t often get the chance to talk to the fairies.”
“Is that how it is?”
The forest fairies come to play with Tiararose quite often. And because of that, the distance between her and the fairies was very small.
–But, now that I think about it, Firine doesn’t really talk to the fairies much either.
Firine was blessed by the sea fairy. However, she never saw Firine talking to a sea fairy and neither did she know that the culprit behind the recent incident was the sea fairy.
“Tiararose-sama, you’re being blessed by the forest fairies’ king. That is very special.”
“….Right. He gave his blessing to me, someone who came from a different country, so I must take good care of it.”
