About This Chapter
It's the festival, and the young woman is on her way to meet her future husband. She's worried that the man will distract her from the conversation she's having with the prince, and she wants to make sure that he doesn't distract her too much. She wants to know why he's spending the night with a woman who's not even his wife. The prince tells her that he likes sweets, and that he'd like to spend the evening with her. The young woman tells the prince that she has been longing to see him, but that she can't bear to be alone with him. She begs the prince to get her out of the room, and he says that he has no idea what his name is. She tells him that she'll take him somewhere else, and one day, she swears to him, she will take him back to her homeland. He says that the prince has promised to take her somewhere else. She says that's nonsense, but the prince says that she hasn't promised that to him. He's fawning over the lowly commoner, she says. He promises that she will soon have her crown princess, and they'll be married in the name of only marriage. She should keep an eye on him, too, just like she would if she were his wife, he says. She promises to help him win the prince's love.
