This was the day that Her Highness Nora would fulfill the royal promise and become the protector of the successor of the Ascart House, Roel Ascart, through a grand ceremony.
Mia, as Nora’s personal maid, was heartened by this.
The role of ‘personal maid’ was a special post within a household. Due to the nature of the job, it had stringent requirements, and only the cream of the crop was chosen. In fact, when it came to the successors of major noble houses and the royal family, their personal maid was almost guaranteed to be someone of considerable standing too.
Mia was no exception to the rule. Despite being Nora’s personal maid, she actually came from a noble house, and her father held a significant position in the royal court.

Thus, she entrusted her feelings to Nora, whom she had grown up with from a young age. Years of accompaniment with one another had made her feel like she was Nora’s older sister, though she had enough self-realization in her to know that it was arrogant for her to think this way. How could she possibly match up to Nora’s lofty standing? But, despite her rational mind telling her otherwise, her instincts drove her to act with Nora’s best interests in mind, and that was why she decided to make a move.
Not too long ago, Mia used one of her channels to spread a rumor. It was a rumor about two children who were mutually in love but met with numerous difficulties along the way, only to end up being forced apart from one another. It was cunningly crafted to poke at the ment
