The door was slowly opened after receiving the knock and Mary who had been thinking of escaping unexpectedly strengthened her expression.
There was no doubt that the people in that room were people reigning on top of this country. They were people who hold the authority when the King and Queen were absent.
Even though she was a daughter of Albert House, to Mary who wasn't a heir, they were an existence she couldn't oppose.
When she thought such people are waiting inside, chill ran down her spine, and even though she was confused, she was still trying to find way to escape…
“Ma, Mary-samaaa! “
Mary could only widen her eyes at Alicia who came running to hug her with tears in her eyes.
