The Palace was bustling because today marks as the tenth prince's birthday. His brother's have given him lots of gifts while here I was in my room, locking myself and Ji-ae while we prepared a mini birthday party for the prince himself.

"Ji-ae, has all the milk tea's been stirred?" I asked while blowing up different colorful balloons.

"Yes my lady! I made more in case they ask for more too!" She giggled.

"That will most likely happen, knowing that all the princes love milk tea." I grinned playfully. After blowing up the balloons, I turned to make party hats after.

"My lady, what else are we going to do?" Ji-ae asked.

I pursed my lip for a moment. "Can you make mochi?" I asked her. Ji-ae stared at me for a moment.

"Mochi? Ah. I can make that, my lady. But what flavor?" Ji-ae asks. I pursed my lips again to think what kind of flavor would they like.

"Make it, strawberry flavor!" I smiled. Then Ji-ae rushes out of the room, carefully closing the door while she hurries to the kitchens to make strawberry mochi.

🌸 🌸 🌸

"Where is my.....Eunha?" A drunk Eun asks. His body was swaying side to side. All the princes turned to look at him.

"Eunha? I haven't seen her since last night." Baek-ah said. He then turned to face Jung.

"I haven't seen her too. The last I saw her was at the funeral ceremony." Jung said.

"Maybe she's planning a surprise for you?" Won suggested.

"Ahh, my Eunha planning a surprise for me." Eun clutched his chest dramatically. But all of them could only chuckle.

"I need to go back to my room first." He said then walked all by himself up to his chambers.

🌸 🌸 🌸

The preparations were already complete, the strawberry mochi and milk tea were ready, the party hard were ready and the balloons were ready too. But now, all I need to do is to look for Eun. But where could he be?

Just as I kept looking around, I finally found him resting his body on the sliding doors.

"Your Highness!" I exclaimed happily.

"Eunha.....wait, why am I seeing three Eunha's?" He grinned. There was a bad scent wafting around Eun, his brothers must have made him drink.

"How many numbers am I holding up?" I raised my hand and formed a v shape with my index and middle finger.

"Four!" Eun exclaimed like a child. I couldn't help but chuckle at his childish behaviour.

"Let's go Your Highness! I have prepared a surprise for you." I smiled and lend him all the way out to the veranda.

🌸 🌸 🌸

"Here we are Your Highness!" I turned to face Eun to see his reaction, and his face was nothing all but smiles.

"Did you prepare all this, Eunha?" He asks.

I shook my head. "Nope. I had help from Ji-ae to make this all happen."

As if on cue, all the princes arrived at the veranda.

"Oh goodie. You're all here. I made a lot of party hats too!" I smiled and made them all wear it. To my disappointment, So wasn't there with me.

After they all wore their party hats, I stood in the front and greeted Eun a happy birthday. I cleared my throat after and sang a song that meant so much to me.

" Snowflakes are falling
They fall a little farther away
I want to see you
I want to see you
I want to see you
I want to see you
How much do I have to wait
How many nights do I have to stay awake
To see you
to see you
To meet you
To meet you

Past the cold winter
Until the spring day comes back
Until the flowers bloom
Will you stay there a little longer
Will you stay "

And on the other side of the veranda stood Wang So, watching them as they hear Eunha sing for them. He didn't know why, but the song matches Eunha for some unknown reason. Her voice made him stop on his tracks and stayed to where he is just to listen to it.

There was a suddenly wind breeze that caused him to look up in the skies. The skies were clear blue and he had noticed how the trees started to turn pink and white.

And all the while he was staring at them, a lone pink cherry blossom fell down from the tree and waltzed down into his palm.

Spring day is gonna start soon.
