Anastasia returned to Princess Emily's side with her mind preoccupied after receiving the news about her sister's elevated status.

Some women stared at her as nearly an hour had passed since she left the hall with Prince Dante, but they didn't bother to make conversation with a lowly maid, believing she was only a disposable plaything. 

"Looks like you don't have luck when it comes to retaining maids for long, Lily," Princess Niyasa remarked while she briefly glanced at the shabby maid. Even for her brother without a Crux, sleeping with a maid was a little too low, and she expected better. 

Princess Emily turned away from the dancing concubines and asked, "Why do you say that? Anna hasn't caused any trouble." 

"I don't mean in terms of her death, but because of Brother Dante's actions of seeking her out more than once or twice," Princess Niyasa stated, and this even caught Anastasia's attention.
