We set out for the capital the next day. On foot. Yes, on foot. Because my great mistress Princess Cordelia finds being able to walk a gift from gods and wishes to use her legs till they cramp so bad you wish you have tail instead.

So we began trekking over mountains, over hills, over muddy roads to the capital. I tried persuading Cordelia otherwise. I told her we might be late for the Festivals she wished to go if we walked there instead of riding there. She replied by saying if she missed this year's one, she could still wait for next year's. She's currently in a walking mood, so we're going to walk there.

How I wish her walking mood suddenly turns into a riding mood.

"Why did you help me?" Cordelia suddenly asks.

"Pardon?"

"Why did you help me and betray your master?"

"I..." I could not possibly say something possessed me, so I went through with that crazy plan, could I?

"It's complicated, Princess."

"Let me guess. Oh! I know, you like Val! Is it because of Olivia? Wow, I am a genius." She laughs heartily.

"That's not true, Princess. My master's impending nuptial has nothing to do with my decision."

Of course it has.

"Wait... impending nuptial? Who? Val?" Cordelia asks genuinely confused.

Now I am confused too. "Lady Olivia's maid said her lady will be the future mistress of the tower."

"Ha! You believed that? You're stupider than I thought." She looks at me with unshielded disdain. "And that Olivia, hahaha. She does not really believe she has a chance, does she? Hahaha." Cordelia begins to laugh hysterically, and in the most unladylike manner.

"Princess, be careful not to choke yourself, " I comment as I walk on.

"This is hilarious. I should not have left so early

"Aww how pitiful, I bet you're still a... what's your original form again?"

"...an oyster. A pearl oyster." I point out the pearls surrounding my neck.

"Ah. I see the connection now. I thought you just like pearls so much you don yourself from head to toes in pearls. You know there are people like that. Those people know nothing about moderation. It's sad to tell you this, but Ianthe I bet you're still an oyster or a pearl in Val's mind." And then Cordelia who said she's sad, burst out laughing.

The longer I think of it, the more logical it gets. Lord Valentine really only pays attention to magic and spells. He might really think of me as an oyster. A talking oyster who can tidy up his room. How tragic.

Princess Cordelia pats me on my shoulder. "Don't worry, you still have chance. When his room turns messy or when he runs out of food, he'll remember you. Probably. Hahahaha."

That's not comforting. At all.

But, I remind myself once again, that does not affect me. I have decided to forget my maybe tiny feeling for him.

It doesn't matter if I am just a talking oyster in his mind.

It turns out it does matter. I sigh.
