‘The Introduction of Humanities from the Perspective of the History of the Human Race and the Insight of Philosophy . ’
I looked at the textbook that was included in the exam and frowned . Sleepiness arose in me just by looking at the title .
I swallowed my desire to throw the book away and started to read . My eyes widened as I read .
‘…What is this? It’s fun? Why is it fun?’
I flipped through the book .
It was filled with literary content on history, philosophy, and metaphysics .
Its content was something that could never be fun, but it was oddly enjoyable .
I soon realized the reason .
‘It’s been a while since I’ve read a book leisurely . ’
My previous life was dominated by veiled strife and schemes, blood, and death .
Yesterday’s ally would stab me in the back today, and such instances occurred not a mere once or twice . Innumerable times, the person who had been smiling so brightly would end up as a cold body by the time I woke up the next day .
How could I leisurely read in such a life!
It was unimaginable .
‘Though one of my wishes in my last life was to read in peace, I wasn’t able to read a single book other than official documents . ’
Was that why?
It was enjoyable and relaxing to sit in the library and read this book .
I moved to a sunlit corner with a pile of books .
Liberal Arts, Social Sciences, Pure Sciences, Military Arts, and more were the books included in the exam, but they all seemed fun . (Imagine reading your physics textbook for fun . )
‘It’s more fun than billing documents . ’
I also brought a sweet drink and mouth-watering pastries with me .
As I fooled around while reading the books, I felt sleepiness sweep over me together with the warm sunlight, so I walked out of the library .
As I was about to enjoy the wind on my skin when a high-pitched voice called out to me .
“Oh my, your Highness, the princess . I was uncertain, but it really is your Highness . It has been a long while since I’ve met you . ”
When I turned my gaze, a girl with pink curls was wearing an exaggeratedly welcoming expression .
I looked at her awkwardly and asked .
“Who are you?”
“Who are you . ”
At my question, the pink-haired girl flushed in embarrassment . It was an expression that implied it was unimaginable for me to not recognize her .
However, no matter how many times I scanned over this body’s memories, I could not remember a pink-haired girl with a fake smile .
“I am the daughter of Marquis Hansen, your Highness . ”
At the mention of Marquis Hansen, I looked at her again .
The Hansen Family, as one of the households that held up the West Empire, was spread about far away in the midwestern countryside .
It was a famed aristocratic family not far behind the strength of the Roxanne Grand Duchy, so those who passed by us looked at the girl with rounded eyes .
“I am truly surprised to see the famous Princess Rubia of the Roxanne Grand Duchy in such a place . ”
At her words, the corners of my mouth lifted .
‘Ha, look at this . ’
The famous .
This was clearly a reference to Rubia’s nickname .
The Roxanne Grand Duchy’s Cowardly Princess
Rubia’s name was notorious not only within the duchy, but throughout the Empire’s entire high society .
The shame of the duchy birthed by a common-born mother . With that, her idiocy and shameful behavior .
It was the same as Rubia being humiliated and taunted by the Empire’s entire high society .
As soon as they knew I was Rubia, I could feel contemptuous gazes from here and there .
“To sit in on the Renault Academy’s entrance exam . Have you come to take the exam alone?”
The pink-haired girl made an expression as if truly surprised . And she continued in a voice that suggested her concern towards me .
“I am astonished by your Highness’s courage, but wouldn’t his Royal Highness, the Grand Duke, be enraged if he was to hear of this?”
She then continued with a more careful tone of voice .
“If one was to be accepted in Renault Academy, their household’s name would become that much famous, but if they failed, who else would be burdened by the failure?”
