The Reason Why She Can’t Get Married - Chapter 19
Her memory pulled up information about the Crown Prince’s fiancee, Charlotte Flotte.
She was the nth fiancee of the Crown Prince, and it was difficult to keep track because of his frequent engagements and breakups. But what was important was that she was currently engaged to him. Although it seems that they will break up, he will propose to Selena within this year.
“Shall we go, lady?”
Since it wouldn’t be good for Selena to show her dislike, she obediently followed the noble lady to where Charlotte and her attendants were gathered. It was quite impressive that a single lady was able to gather so many people, but that was because she was the longest-lasting fiancee of the Crown Prince in history.
“Hello, Lady Flotte. Why did you call me?” Selena spoke kindly, while Charlotte and the attendant on either side of her opened their mouths in a haughty voice. “I heard that you are the best love counselor in the empire.”
“Ah, yes. I run a couple matching agency called Serenade, and I often hear such compliments.” Selena had a rather proud expression on her face.
That’s right, she was a top-class love counselor in the Carlton Empire. There were so many people who became love geniuses after receiving counseling from her.
“Then I’ll ask one question. What’s the best way to make someone jealous?”
“Showing affection towards someone of the opposite sex? Or showing interest in someone else in front of them?” Selena blinked. Why would she ask such a pointless question? For a brief moment, the amount of money she earns per hour crossed her mind, and she thought it was not worth asking such a question.
It was just too trivial.
“Well, in my opinion…”
However, Charlotte’s gaze was so desperate for an answer that Selena scratched her cheek and spoke. “Making someone jealous baffles me; it’s probably best not to do it at all.”
“Jealousy is not always a positive emotion. It can be detrimental and unnecessary to a relationship. ” Selena gave her heartfelt advice. It was really top-notch advice.
Some people might take advantage of this situation and do something bad, but Selena wasn’t like that. She was a conscientious and sincere love counselor, despite her high hourly rate. Unfortunately, it seemed that Charlotte didn’t understand her sincerity.
“…Is there a way for you to know if it’s useless or not? Oh well!”
Suddenly her face turned red, and she burst into anger, taking her entourage and leaving quickly. No, why was she getting mad when she asked the question? Selena sighed as she was left alone. Will her position in society plummet even more now?
‘I don’t care much, so I’ll just stay out of it because it’s troublesome.’
As she decided to take a seat, the entrance was bustling. All eyes were focused in that direction.
“The Crown Prince and Second Prince are here!”
With a loud shout, the door opened and a huge, elegant man walked in. His facial features were sharp and distinct under his shining hair. His steps across the red carpet were arrogant and confident.
Crown Prince Maximilian.
The man Selena had been waiting for so long had finally arrived. It was as if he were the main character of this gathering.
‘He’s even more shining today.’
Selena admired his unique face. There was no one in this room that could match this appearance besides Noel Ratliffe.
‘If I had to choose, I would prefer the Duke over the Prince…’
Despite the attention being focused on him, his demeanor was truly that of a prince. He sat at the table before the Second Prince, who had organized the event. The Second Prince didn’t make the mistake of dragging out the greetings for hours like the elders.
He quietly gained Selena’s favor with his brief and clean greeting. What does she say to him now that she has met the prince?
He sat arrogantly with his legs crossed, looking down at the floor below the platform. He seemed to have no intention of coming down to mingle. If she were to go up confidently and try to talk to him, the entire gathering would turn cold.
‘Should I just watch the situation for now?’
The Crown Prince didn’t come to sightsee, after all. He was bound to come down from the stage at some point. Selena decided to wait until then. Read ahead here.
