The following morning after I had my breakfast, I took some time off wandering around the palace grounds. Ever since I got here, I have not yet started to do anything useful. I told the King that I would be learning about medicine but I have not even started memorizing about the different medicines available.

It was then that I started to miss Bora and my mother in my time. I wonder what they could all have been doing now that I disappeared. I couldn't help but sigh and continued to walk around once more.

The palace grounds was huge, as if it was six times larger than my school. And tulips bloomed around the gardens.

"EUNHA!" A happy male voice called from my behind. It was prince Eun who was running towards me.

"Aigoo, Your Highness. What could get you so happy at such an early time?" I asked him, a smile painting my lips.

"Eh, you don't need to use formalities when you're with me Eunha. I'll treat you like my sister!" He is such an adorable prince. I couldn't but chuckle at his cuteness and happy spirits.

"Then, have you decided to come and play with me?" I asked. He nodded his head eagerly.

"Do you have a game in mind that we can play?"

"This game is called rock, paper and scissors. If you lose, the winner slaps your forehead." I explained. Suddenly, a huge smile crept on his face.

"That's a good game! Let's play. Rock, paper, scissors." We drew out our hands and I made a paper while he made a rock.

"I win!" I exclaimed happily. Eun had a sour expression on his face. I slowly raised my hand and left a slap on his forehead.

"Aish. I'll get back to you next time sister." And with that, Eun left me behind.

I had lost track of the time and I didn't realize that it was getting dark. My stomach started to rumble, and I forgot how to get back, so I ended up getting lost in my way.

🌸 🌸 🌸

It had been fairly dark outside already and I noticed how many of the guards were all scattered around the grounds of the palace. Did someone trespassed? One of the guards noticed my presence and he turned to face the palace.

"LADY EUNHA HAS BEEN FOUND. LADY EUNHA HAS BEEN SPOTTED."

They were all looking for me? I blinked as I stared at the entrance gate. The doors slowly opened and Wook, Lady Oh and Ji-ae came out.

"My Lady!" Ji-ae exclaimed as she came running towards me.

"What happened?" I asked as I looked at her.

"My lady you have been gone for more than an hour! They thought you were kidnapped. You gave Lady Oh a fright!" Ji-ae spoke, holding me as she hold me in her arms.

"Where have you been?" Lady Oh asked, more like she was demanding.

"I'm sorry. I...got lost in my way." They were about to get back inside but I added to what I wanted to say.

"But, I realize, I'm home." I showed them a small smile.

I went back intomy room and as I was about to close it, a rushing Wook came inside and held my shoulders tight.

"Did you know that I was worried sick? I got scared when I found out that you were missing. I thought someone have taken you." Him worrying for me made my heart flutter. Instead of assuring him, I leaned in and wrapped my arms around him.

"I'm fine, Your Highness. Thank you for worrying about me." I rested my head on his chest and closed my eyes. The sound of his heartbeat in my ear were music in my ears.

"I want to protect you as a man." He mumbled under his breath.

"What was that Your Highness?" I asked, looking up at him.

"You should drop your formalities when you're with me. Call me Wook instead." He said.

"Alright...Wook. It is late now. Please get your rest." I smiled at him, he showed a small smile towards me and then left my chambers.

Prince Wook please don't do this to me...
