It sounded like Steven was bluffing. Could it be that Steven was unaware that the Queen was the most respectable figure in Yingland and the icon of the nation who countless people wanted to meet but could not?
Prince William could not keep himself from chuckling. “I’m sorry. I didn’t hear you earlier. Who did you say you’re here to meet again?”
Steven darted a look at him and said nonchalantly, “Your grandmother.”
Alice smirked a little upon hearing Steven’s remark. Prince William shook his head and assumed that Steven was mentally if he had come to Yingland to meet the Queen.
“I’m sorry but you might not be able to meet Her Majesty. Her Majesty lives in the seclusion of her home and barely leaves the house, so she won’t be meeting with ordinary people,” Prince William remarked sarcastically.
Rowan was mocking Steven for not being qualified to meet the Queen.
Actually, it was not really mockery because it was the truth. Did Steven think that he could just walk into a room and meet the Queen?
Steven smiled in reply but did not bother to explain further.
All of a sudden, he felt the bloodlust from earlier again. Moreover, it was more intense and powerful than before!
It was getting closer as well.
Rowan felt rather frustrated that he had just landed in Yingland but had already encountered such a situation.
His silence was seen as a display of his embarrassment in Prince William’s eyes, so the prince felt much better after seeing that.
Alice agreed that Steven was being rather boastful to claim that he was here to meet the Queen.
Never mind a Rheasian like Alder, she had only seen Her Majesty from afar when she was still a child.
After all, the Queen had an prestigious status as the ruler of Yingland. She would not be meeting anyone casually.
Meanwhile, Steven said, “Both of you have been targeted by an assassin.”
Prince William was obviously stunned for a moment upon hearing that. Then, he looked at Steven and inquired, “I’m sorry, I didn’t hear you. What did you say again?”
Steven rolled his eyes at Prince William for being so slow.
“I said that both of you have been targeted by an assassin.” Steven repeated himself.
This time, Prince William heard it clearly and burst out laughing aloud, “Steven from Rheasia, you have a good sense of humor. Do you know who I am? I’m Prince William of Yingland and I’m loved by Her Majesty.”
“I’m going to take over Yingland in the future and now you’re claiming that there’s an assassin coming for me?”
Upon saying that, he shook his head. The more he interacted with Alder, the more he found Steven to be mentally unstable. First, he claimed he had come to meet the Queen and then that there was an assassin.
Who in all of Yingland had the audacity to assassinate the prince?
Were they trying to get himself killed?
However, Alice furrowed her brows. Her intuition told her that Steven was not mentally unstable. She immediately stared at him and asked in a deep voice, “Alder, are you sure we’ve been targeted by an assassin?”
Prince William laughed louder.
