"Wait, Lord Valentine!" Before I can utter the last word, Lord Valentine vaporizes in front of me.

That must not be the real Lord Valentine. This is just a shadow of him made by his magic.

He could have sent another written message like the one a few days ago, but he didn't. He appeared in person, just to apologize. To me. There is nothing he needs to apologize for, yet he asked after my feelings and conditions.

I stand in the balcony, admiring the moon while slowly tasting the candies he left me. I have to treasure them. The moon and the candies are all I have in this lonely night.

Tingling of warmth and sweetness slowly glide down my throat and then my chest, my heart.

The moon looks stunning tonight.

-----------------

I wait till nearly the end of the ball to find Cordelia bursting into the hall and hiding behind a column.

"Hide my track, Ianthe!" Cordelia orders by communicating telepathically to me.

With a small sigh, I abide her order. I have disguised my magical bag into a small clutch. I open it until I am staring at the inside of what looks like an ordinary clutch. I whisper, "Dolphin, can you help me find a distraction spell?"

I can very well place my hand inside and search, but that will take a while with how many things I have stuffed inside since our escape from the Kingdom.

After a second, a tiny slip of paper appears at the mouth of the clutch.

"Thanks Dolphin. You're the best!"

Taking a quick glance of my surrounding, I take hold of the slip of rune and mutter beneath my breath.

Just in time to mask Cordelia's track when the prince bursts into the ball room. He is holding a ruby red mask. His face flushed as he shouts to his guards, "Find he

e you feeling better now?" Cordelia brushes her hair from her face. For one second I thought I saw something akin to caring on her face, but then as quick as a slip of sand, her face is filled with annoyance and impatience.

"Much revived, your highness. And I think the guards no longer focus so much on finding escaping ladies. Let's slip out."

Cordelia nods her head noncommittally and says, "I know the way to the front door. Find it during playing with the pretty prince." I do not miss the evil spark appearing in her eyes when she mentions the prince.

I hope she remembers directions well.

Turns out aside from not being able to do magic, Princess more or less excels in other regions. I shouldn't have doubted her. In ten minutes we're out of the castle.

"What a fun night." Cordelia stretches her arms above her head. "Wait for me, pretty prince. I'm not done with you yet."

If someone takes a picture at this moment, a perfect poster for a villainess will be produced. With the moonlight, the ruby red dress, the evil smile on her face. You do know that you're the heroine of the story, but not the villainess, Cordelia?
