13. Useless king

His sudden change of mood

frightened her.


The blue eyes

which were so warm just a moment ago


         were glaring at her coldly.


She couldn't understand why

                            he got so angry.


Seeing that he startled the princess,

he said, “I'm sorry for yelling like that.

I don't like when people call my country

the Country of Deserts.

But I shouldn't have taken it out on you.”


He looked so sorrowful

         that Oethonera pitied him.


“I am the one who should be sorry,”

she bowed her head.

“I apologize for my words and my country.

If I knew that the king of Junah arrived

I would have immediately gone to greet you.”


The king smiled. “You don't need to apologize.”

He looked up at the silver moon

and said as if he was talking to himself

“What's the sense of apologizing to a king

who can't help his people?

                   It is a useless king.”


She shook her head.


“I don't think so,” she said kindly,

“As long as you care about your people

you are

         a good king.”


He looked at her her beautiful face

was glowing in the moonlight.

He put out his hand and touched her cheek with his fingertips.

“Thank you,” he whispered gently.

“I really

         mean it.”
