Althea Cezara, the daughter of a duke was engaged to the prince… that is until one day, when he announced with no apparent reason that they were through.
Since then, she’s been living under house arrest, exiled to the countryside. ‘Harassment he said? What could he possibly have been talking about?’ Even after the fact, she could only tilt her head and wonder.
‘But it’s fine. I don’t have any obligations anymore, so this sort of life is surprisingly fun.’ It’s during these carefree days that she suddenly heard a rumor.
Konno’s (Author’s) Aside: This story about a broken engagement is one that I’ve always wanted to try writing. It might develop slowly, but there will eventually be some romance (probably). For love interests, there’s a somewhat disturbing stalker of a prince and a little brother who pretends to be formal but likes to stick uncomfortably close…. (that is to say, there are love interests, but no one decent…)
