Chapter 1674 A Big Fool
Vivian was very full after eating at the palace.
As the court needed to hold an urgent meeting to let the tribe start the production, she strolled out of the hall after eating and went to play outside.
“Oh! You’re here.”
To her surprise, she spotted that little girl when she went to the garden behind the palace.
It was none other than Nina, who had lured her into stealing and eating the chicken yesterday.
At that moment, she was squatting in the garden. Vivian did not know what Nina was doing, but she was burrowing into a bush with her butt poking out.
Vivian walked over.
When Nina discovered Vivian and realized that she was the person whom she had tricked yesterday, she was scared. She tossed the mud in her hands away and prepared to flee.
“Hey! Why are you running? I’m not going to hit you.”
Rushing forward, Vivian grabbed her and pulled her back.

To her surprise, Nina shrieked in pain after being grabbed by her.
Vivian was so shocked that she quickly released the child.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t do it on purpose. Did I hurt you?” She had no intention of scolding Nina. Instead, she looked worried when she heard Nina yell out in pain.
Nina was stunned. Only then did the tension leave her tiny body.
Feigning indifference, she pulled her hand back, not wanting Vivian to see the red mark on her hand after his brother hit her.
“Why are you here? Did you get caught after the others discovered that you stole the chicken?”
“No. Your brother invited me here!” explained Vivian proudly in front of the girl.
Nina was speechless.
No longer feeling wary, she squatted and continued fiddling around with the mud, ignoring Vivian.
When Vivian saw that, she moved over curiously. “What are you doing?”
Nina replied, “Can’t you see? I’m digging for fruits to eat.”
Her rationality informed her that Nina was playing a prank on her again. How can there be fruits in the garden?
However, as she wanted to find out about something, she had an idea. Pretending to look extremely shocked and curious, she asked, “Really? What fruits? I want to eat them too!”
Err… she’s really dumb.
Nina complained silently as she continued digging for her flower.
Naturally, she was not trying to dig for fruits. Instead, she wanted to dig out the flower and plant it somewhere else. That spot was too dark and cold.
She hoped that a beautiful and colorful flower would grow, so the person staying there could feel happy.
“Nina, I heard that you’re Prince Kurt’s sister, right?”
“So what if I am?” admitted Nina impatiently.
When Vivian heard that, she felt overjoyed. Squatting there and looking at the little girl, she felt so excited that her breathing quickened.
She’s really his sister!
“Really? Then it’s my honor to have met a princess! Princess, have all of you been staying in this palace all along? I’ve never met you previously.”
Suppressing her excitement, Vivian struck up a conversation with Nina.
As expected, Nina felt much better when Vivian called her ‘Princess’. She turned around and shot Vivian a disdainful glance with her pretty eyes.
“I’m a princess, so a commoner like you definitely has never seen me. Also, I didn’t stay here in the past.”
“Huh? You didn’t stay here? Where did you stay, then? Is it a prettier and better place than this?”
“No. That place is very… cold and dark.”
The look in Nina’s eyes suddenly dimmed.
She seemed unwilling to mention that. When she spoke, her eyes were evidently filled with fear and repulsion.
Vivian did not know what to say.
All of a sudden, her heart ached.
Looks like Daphne was right. Nina must have been locked up in a horrible place before they came here.
However, I was at the River of Styx with Kurt that day. Kurt went to the Black Marsh. But after I regained consciousness, I heard from Matteo that when those at SteelFort saw Kurt, they did not see him bring anyone back.
So, does this mean that they weren’t at the Black Marsh? Where were they locked up in?
Vivian felt even more worried.
“Really? What kind of place is that? Does such a place exist here? When I was young, I was often locked up as well because I was disobedient.”
“Yeah, but my parents won’t lock me up in a dark and cold place. That’s why I’d like to know where you’ve been locked up! Was your mom the one who locked you up?”
Vivian started to tempt her patiently, wishing to find out the truth.
