Outcast: The Alpha King's Beloved

Chapter 12: Staying In The Same Room 

Jennifer's POV: 

Elizabeth was wearing a gorgeous gown, but she looked thin and haggard.

Obviously, she had been ill for a long time.

Nevertheless, she looked like an amiable woman.

She was probably in good spirits after finding out that Prince Anthony had found his mate.

"Are you Jennifer?" Elizabeth asked excitedly, getting up from her seat and rushing towards me to receive me.

The maid next to her reached out and supported her in a hurry.

"Mrs.Jones, you are still sick.Please take care of yourself."

"It doesn't matter.I know what I am doing," Elizabeth said sternly, pushing her hand away.

"Nice to meet you, Mrs.Jones," I greeted, curtsying to her.

"Don't be so formal." She grinned from ear to ear, holding my hand.

"Are you hungry? Delicious food is being prepared. You must stay for dinner."

It was very kind of her to say that, but I didn't want to agree rashly, so I turned to look at Anthony, who gave me a nod.

"Don't look at him. I make the decisions," Elizabeth said, winking at me.

"You don't have to go back tonight.After so long, he's finally found his mate.You have to stay with me for a while."

"Mom, Jennifer needs to train tomorrow," Prince Anthony reminded her.

"Let's have dinner first."

With a big smile, Elizabeth held my hand tightly and ignored her son.I felt relieved.

She was way kinder than I thought she would be.

I liked her not because of her status, but because of her warm demeanor.

If my mother was still alive, she would be at a similar age.

The royal dinner was not as stiff and formal as I thought it would, but maybe it was because Elizabeth was an open -minded person.

I talked a lot with her until dusk.

After dinner, the sky was completely dark, and it began to rain.
