“I’m sorry, Charlize.”
After the commotion was cleared up.
Her Majesty, the Empress dowager sat down next to me and apologized with a serious tone.
“I knew they couldn’t be trusted but I never expected them to treat you in a bad way.”
Actually, I intentionally caused what happened.
I tried to ignore my prick of conscience and smiled innocently.
“No, I’m grateful to the Empress dowager!”
“You’re thanking me”
“Yes! From now on, I won’t meet those scary maids.”
When I answered as if I didn’t know anything, a soft smile spread over Her Majesty’s face.
“Then I should also thank my adorable maid.”
“Thanks to you, I have justification to get rid of those disrespectful maids.”
The Empress dowager who had said so, gently stroked my hair.
My eyes glistened as I enjoyed her affectionate touch.
Of course, it can’t be guaranteed that the influence of the Emperor won’t be able to affect the newly selected maids.
But at least…….
“Her Majesty has a chance to choose the maids herself.”’
This problem arose when maids were sent from the Royal household agency, so she should be able to ask and handpick maids for herself now that she has a reason to.
So it’s up to the Empress dowager to pick the right maid.
“Actually, I called you today because I wanted you to help me.”
“Oh Can I still help, your Majesty”
I opened my eyes wide, eager and ready.
Her Majesty, the Empress dowager, looking at my startled face, immediately smiled.
It’s not a big deal, I want to bake a cake.”
“Maybe it’s because I haven’t tried to in my entire life, so I keep getting it wrong.”
Her Majesty, the Empress dowager added in an awkward tone.
“As the maidservants all came from aristocratic backgrounds, they said that they had never baked a cake before.”
Her Majesty’s asking for my help and those maids are gone….
I’m going to help her Majesty bake the cake.
It’s not hard.
I asked a question out of curiosity.
“Is there a reason why your Majesty has to bake the cake herself”
It’s not someone else, it’s Her Majesty, why does she need to bake a cake all on her own
In an instant, Her Majesty’s voice was filled with excitement.
“I’m going to give it to Damian as a gift.”
“….Her Majesty is going to send it to his Highness”
The Empress dowager nodded her head energetically like a very excited child.
“I plan to send it to the Empress’s staff.
I have already obtained permission from the Empress.”
“Well, I see.
But why all of a sudden”
“Well, because tomorrow is Damian’s birthday.”
To-Tomorrow is Damian’s birthday
I was so surprised that I even forgot that I was in front of Her Majesty.
I was deeply embarrassed for how I reacted but Her Majesty didn’t seem to take notice.
A gleeful voice reached my ears.
“I’ve never had a chance to take care of him in five years, but now, I can do so.”
………That’s what it was.
I clenched my fists.
“Well, I’ll do my best.”
“I’ll do my best to help you bake the most delicious cake in the world,” I declared!
Oh, was my voice too loud
When I heard that it was Damian’s birthday, without knowing it, my shoulders tensed up……
I was worried and secretly looked into the eyes of Her Majesty, gauging her reaction even if it was for a second.
Her Majesty, the Empress dowager, who had her eyes wide open, answered with a gentle, sweet voice.
“Wow, it’s done.”
I took a deep breath, satisfied, and stepped away from the cake.
The unique sweet and savory scent of freshly baked cakes permeated in the kitchen.
With an ecstatic face, the Empress dowager gazed at the cake evenly coated with whipped cream.
“Now all I have to do is decorate this cake”
Here, fruits and chocolate decorations.”
Her Majesty, the Empress dowager picked up a piece of fruit with a very concentrated face.
I looked with the eyes of a hawk to see if Her Majesty made any mistakes.
Hmm, it is a rare sight in its own way.
I didn’t expect to see Her Majesty decorate a cake during my lifetime.
After a while, Her Majesty raised her head.
“Charlize, look at this.
Isn’t this pretty decent”
It seems that Her Majesty loves Damian tremendously.
Judging by all the chocolates and fruits piled up endlessly.
But…..in my personal opinion, I think that love needs some moderation…..and less toppings.
In the end, I chose an easy answer.
“….His Highness, the Crown Prince will be very happy!”
“Really That’s a relief.”
Her Majesty, the Empress dowager smiled brightly and I decided to just be satisfied with that smile.
After cleaning up, the Empress dowager and I shared the remaining cakes and had a chat.
“By the way, I had no idea it was the Crown Prince’s birthday.”
“Oh my, Damian didn’t tell you”
“Yes, how could he not even tell me”
Feeling disappointed, I pouted my lips a little.
“Still, I am the Crown Prince’s exclusive maid.”
“Maybe it was because he didn’t want to burden you.”
Her Majesty, the Empress dowager, speaking in a soothing voice, looked at me with delighted eyes.
