Five years have passed ever since Alexandra woke up in this world as a newborn baby. She has already confirmed and accepted her new life knowing that whatever she would do, it won't change unless she loses her life.
She can already walk and talk. She learned that this world's language and system of writing and reading was t as the previous world she lived in, however, it was hard to learn and when Alexandra tried to write (Her handwriting was messy and she held the pencil the wrong way) and read, the maids were shocked especially, Diana. An average kid would learn how to write and read at the age of 7-8 but Alexandra already learned how to without someone teaching her.
Probably because she was much older than the child in this body.
"Who taught you how to write and read, young miss?" Hannah, one of the maids asked out of curiosity as she stared at the paper with Alexandra's messy handwriting on it. Diana stared at her, waiting for her to answer as well as the other maids. Alexandra panicked and screamed inside her mind as the palm of her hands' sweat and only thought of one thing that could be the only acceptable reason, "Books," She responded in a calm tone of voice.
Well, it's the only thing I could think of and it's the first thing that came to her mind.
"Well, that's true. I would sometimes read her a book while showing her pictures. I would sometimes leave my book in this room and maybe Alexandra learned through it," Diana stated and nodded repeatedly while she held her chin with the use of her thumb and index finger.
Therese, another maid who was close with Alexandra replied while thinking, "Indeed, she can learn through books but Diana, the books you read are confusing and have these words which I can't understand. An average kid needs someone to teach him or her." Diana just giggled and pinched Alexandra's cheeks as she looked at her and smiled sweetly.
"Well, she's no average kid. She's the daughter of an emperor, she comes from a powerful bloodline and even though she can't inherit their powerful abilities and magic, she can inherit their intelligence." Diana said which all the maids agreed in. That's where they decided to teach Alexandra some things she might need when growing up. And that's where the discussion end.
"Young Miss," A familiar voice called out to her name interrupting her while she was reading a book. Alexandra turned her head, her platinum-white hair (which was a common trait for the Everlys) swaying at the process, and met Diana's green eyes.
"What are you doing here all alone?" Diana asked as she walked towards Alexandra sitting on a white chair with a round glass table and an empty chair in front of her underneath a tree which protected her from the sun's heat and UV rays.
"I was reading a book," Alexandra answered in a rather gentle tone as she smiled at the approaching maid. "Really? What kind of book?" Diana said and stood beside her, slightly bending down to see the content of the book.
"Frederick Lowell's Ques Memorios!" Diana almost chocked when she heard that book's title. "B-But that's in Griyel language! We've only taught you Wistelia and Leenaria and besides that is a book for teens and adults," Diana, with a shocked and confused face, said.
"Hannah and Daisy taught me how to and they recommended me to read this book to understand the language more." Alexandra was like an adult in a child's body, well that's true. Alexandra was just 18 years old when she died from that crash. (Note: Those languages and words are invented by me)
Diana just sighed and rubbed her forehead. "I see…" Was the only thing Diana could say. Diana thought that Alexandra was an amazing child, she was no doubt an Everly. Alexandra was a well-behaved and cheerful child from the start, how dare someone called her a curse when she was really an angel.
"You can leave me here, you still have many things to do," Alexandra said in a sweet tone and glanced up at Diana with a cute smile on her face. Diana felt a pang on her chest, it feels like an arrow just went straight to her heart. Alexandra's cuteness and smile was the maids' favorite.
"Blessings for the Queenilia Empire." Diana bowed and turned her heel around and walked away heading back towards the palace. Alexandra looked back at her book and heaved a sigh before she read once again.
Alexandra was in her room, sitting on the couch while she thought of some things. For the past years, she slowly learned what kind of world she lived in and is slowly accepting the reality she is in now. This world is filled with magic and unexpected things.
People are born with magic either weak or strong. However, she doesn't know how to use magic just like others, even Diana can do it. She heaved a sigh and leaned her body sideways which caused her head to fall on the soft pillow. The only thing she did was to read history books and gain knowledge about this world while she learned some things from the maids. She doesn't even know what to do and she's bored reading all of those books from the palace's library. She was still a child, a 5-year-old child, why must she go through all this.
Though she was living a carefree life and enjoying everything because if you compare her current life to her previous one, this was much better than that. I mean, she got food, she doesn't have to work, this huge palace was hers and she's being surrounded with maids, she wakes up in a comfortable and warm bed, and such things. It feels like she has everything that she isn't able to have in her previous life.
Although she doesn't have a friend and her family was, somehow, neglecting her or something. It's like she doesn't have a family at all and probably just emerged out of a lake and is being taken care of some maids who she became close with as years passed by. This is just similar to my past life to which I don��t have any friends at all and with my family, which is only composed of my mother and this one relative that is taking care of me, gone as they left me when I was quite young.
I don't think I have that many friends in the orphanage to where I spend years living in.
She doesn't know what her family looks like even with all of the books that are dedicated and are about her bloodline. She's trapped inside this palace, she isn't allowed to go out and she's rotting here in this palace, reading books as she strolled around the garden then interact with the maids.
Well, this was much better than her previous life, so why would she even complain?
A sudden knock at the door interrupted her train of thoughts. "It's me, Diana. I'm coming in!" And the door was gently swung open revealing Diana with a tray of food for her dinner. Alexandra met eyes with Diana who smiled sweetly at her as she placed the bowl of food down.
"I made your favorite soup," Diana said and stood still while hugging the tray against her chest. "Thank you," Alexandra said and took the spoon and tasted the soup.
"It's delicious," Alexandra said making Diana giggle, "I'm glad you liked it, Alexandra." The sudden call of her first name by Diana shocked her. Diana always called her 'Young Miss' but she called her this time using her first name. Diana was also shocked and she immediately blushed because of embarrassment.
"I-I'm sorry, young miss! It suddenly slipped off my tongue, I just had the urge to call you by your first name!" Diana stuttered and blushed more. How could she call someone with a higher status than hers with the use of her first name?
Alexandra shook her head and replied in a sweet and happy tone, "It's fine, it's fine. You don't need to apologize beside it's not bad to call me by my name. You can call me Alexandra if you want!" Alexandra showed her a cute smile after saying those and Diana can't help but smile.
"Yes, I'm glad," She answered.
