A little while ago, about an hour after I said “Seriously?” to the King
and fell to my knees…
A woman and I were drinking tea in a room of the royal castle.
“Greetings, my name is Patrick von Snake.” Pat
“I am Sonalis Mental.” Sona
Her self-introduction is simple.
“So, why me? I’m not handsome man nor do I come from a good family. In fact,
my family recently participated in a rebellion. I then had to brutally execute
them on behalf of the Kingdom. Plus, I’m seemingly cursed with a lack of

“Then, I look forward to being with you.” Pat bowed his head
“Yes, I’m a bit of an odd princess, but it’s nice to be with you.” Sona
bowed her head in response
Hmm? You’re an eccentric princess? Who am I now entangled with?
