Lilianne of the Emotional Singing
Theo’s birthday party progressed smoothly and with the greetings finished, various performances were happening.
The servants did various performances such as a play, singing, and dancing.
A buffet has opened in the party hall, so the participants were having friendly chat here and there while enjoying the performances.

The leading actor, Theo, was seemingly having a good time while chatting with Prince Genovi and his friends from the academy.
But, I noticed that he had peeked several times at us. He probably wants to introduce us.

It was only Prince Genovi who came to us on the second floor.
Therefore, his friends have not greeted me, Ojiisama, Obaasama and others, say nothing of introducing themselves.
My Oniisama was apparently boasting of his beloved little sister even in the academy, so it’s obvious that he wants to introduce me, who is not able to leave the mansion to his friends.


Well, we will be doing our birthday present performance in a little while, so introductions and greetings can come after that.
In fact, there’s a proper reason for the present to be pushed this far back.
That’s because the leading actor of today is Theo and Obaasama and Ojiisama don’t want me to end up snatching the spotlight from him.
But, that’s not definitely all.

Even though the subordinates of Obaasama and others investigated the people that were invited, it’s not clear what could happen on the appointed day. A considerable number of people came today, so they are being re-checked.
This is what I heard from Kuti, but Prince Genovi’s side was apparently reconsidered twice.
He might be Theo’s amiable friend, but he’s royalty.
Although the Christophe Household are Great Nobles that even the royal family can’t interfere with, there are limits.
That’s why they are stalling it even now. If he wasn’t from the royalty, it surely wouldn’t take this long.
As I thought, having royalty as an opponent is quite a chore.


That being the case, we are waiting here, waiting for our turn, while observing, and making sure that we don’t steal the spotlight.

“Ellie, Lily. It’s almost our turn, let’s go change?”

“Yes, Ena.”


“Do your best~ you two.”

“Go get ‘em. I am looking forward to it.”

“Yes, Obaasma, Ojiisama.”

“Will do my bessst~”

“You have practiced a lot. You will surely do great~”

“I wasn’t able to hear you practicing the song even once in the end, so I have high expectations.”


Receiving Obaasama and Ojiisama’s encouragement, I went to a different room with Ellie, Ena and our personal maids to change.
Ellie was gently holding my left hand, while Ena held the right.
These two… no, my personal maids and Scarlet too, they don’t seem to be nervous at all.


Not being nervous even though they are about to sing in front of so many people on Theo’s birthday, I can only say as expected of them.
Well, my personal maids and Scarlet are like that, so I think it would be rare for them to be nervous.
Ellie and Ena have quite the courage too, and I am not nervous at all either.
Far from that, I am looking forward to it.


Now then, let’s wish our Oniisama happy birthday.
