The moment the word “Daughter-in-law” came out, Marquis Hamel, as well as myself, froze with embarrassment.
It was too disparate of a word to come out of the wild beast’s mouth.
“Your Majesty, it’s because Her Highness first insulted our family…”
Then Marquis Hamel was unable to speak. The sword of the emperor touched his wrist.
“Why did this wretched hand move?”
“Were you were going to give the Crown Princess a slap?”
“Are you lying?”
The sharp blade flashed dangerously. Apparently, Marquis Hamel tried to hit me. Because I was the Crown Princess, and there was an emperor beside him, he stopped his hand.
I couldn’t see them properly because the blade was flashing in front of my eyes. Suddenly, the emperor’s assistant, Collin, approached me.
“Your Highness, I think you’d better go home for today.”
Unlike his cold demeanor, he smiled warmly.
“Okay. I’ll be on my way.”
I bowed down to the emperor and left the room without saying anything. I gave a video to Collin who accompany me off the emperor’s palace.
“What is this?”
“It’s a video of Sir Hamel insulting the Crown Prince and me.”
This was a clear indication that he could be guilty of subversion.
It was supposed to be delivered directly to the emperor, but I could trust Collin.
He was the emperor’s most trusted servant, and knew Tenstheon actually loved Blake.
“You actually prepare this?”
Colin seemed rather surprised.
“I can’t just accuse a person without this much evidence.”
There was something like this in my previous life. Because of the lacking CCTV footage, the guilty was able to escape the charge. Since then, I have realized the importance of CCTV.
“I’ll let the emperor know.”
Collin bowed politely.
Hamel was fired for trying to give Crown Princess a slap in the presence of the emperor. His son also used his position as a chief servant to embezzle the wealth of the imperial family, and was punished for insulting the Crown Prince.
This wasn’t the end. Hamel and his family were stripped of their titles and need to do 30 years of hard labor.
The family of the Marquis fell to the ground. But no one could take their side.
If the Emperor had tried to punish the family for the Monstrous Crown Prince, the nobles would have had a reason to protect them.
However, the emperor did not put the crown prince as a reason. He asked only to punish the Hamels who insulted the Crown Prince and despised the imperial family.
The man also tried to give the Crown Princess a slap in front of the emperor, and the son gives a low-handed insult.
Marquis Hamel pretended to be loyal to the emperor, but serve the Duke of Cassil behind him. The emperor pretended not to know, but he must have been thinking about how to punish him.
I handed over the video, which is a sure proof, but it didn’t seem to be so simple to get the Emperor’s attention.
I looked at the clock. Even though it was time for the emperor’s political affairs to end, there was still no news from the emperor. You’re not going to call me back again today? Are you going to leave Blake alone, as you’ve done so far?
Of course, I know that the emperor doesn’t make this choice because he wants to, but I felt sorry for him.
However, just because the emperor again chose neglect under the guise of indifference, I couldn’t just wait like this.
I can’t just leave the emperor and Blake like this, they’re still walking down the path of tragedy.
I jumped up from my seat.
“Melissa, get me a carriage. I’m going to Phillion palace.”
Melissa panicked when I said I’d go to the emperor’s palace.
“Your Highness, if you would like to see His Majesty, why don’t you ask for a permission first?”
“If I ask him on a formal basis, he’ll say no.”
It’s better to just go and find him directly. Even the nobles would think it was just a child’s behavior.
Hence, Melissa was forced to prepare the carriage.
We had to use a carriage to move to the Phillion palace. Because, the Crown Prince’s palace was located in a remote area away from the Emperor’s Palace, so riding a carriage is a must.
I was trying to get on the carriage, but someone grabbed my hand.
“Ancia, where are you going?”
He was very upset to learn that I almost got hit by Marquis Hamel on the Imperial Palace. He’ll stop me if I say I’m going to the Phillion Palace.
“I’m going to the square for a while.”
“Lies. You’re going to His Majesty, aren’t you?”
Did you hear my conversation?
“I’ll be right back.”
“I’ll go with you.”
It was the first time Blake said he would come out of the Crown Prince’s palace. Melissa and Edon seemed surprised as well.
“I’ll protect you, wife. So if you want to see His Majesty, I’ll go with you.”
He didn’t stop me from going and instead tried protected me. This little boy somehow feels like a reliable husband.
“Okay, let’s go together.”
I smiled and clasped his hand as we climbed onto the carriage.
The emperor loves his son.
As the emperor of the Empire, he cannot call his son to the palace first, but when he visited, he won’t reject him.
It was the time when the emperor’s political affairs were over. We rushed straight into the emperor’s bedroom.
“Your Highness, you can’t get in.”
“You dare to defy the Crown Princess?”
The servant stood in my way, but when I spoke harshly, he finally withdrew.
“Your Highness, You can enter.”
I clasped Blake’s hand, and opened the emperor’s bedroom door.
Tenstheon was just about to come out of the bath. His hair was wet alongside his face and body. Even though he covered his lower body with a large towel, he wasn’t dressed.
The emperor stood tall and looked down at us. The overwhelming charisma of the red-eyed man lowered my head instantly. Then, my attention was drawn to his perfect muscle.
Wow, I don’t know where to direct my eyes. I forgot that I was in a R-19 novel for a moment because I was always with my cute husband.
“What’s the matter?”
I suddenly came to my senses.
I was distracted by the sight, but I didn’t forget my purpose.
First of all, I need to win the Emperor’s trust. I must make him believe me enough to tell his love for his son. Only then I can act as a bridge between the two naturally.
Praise is the best way to gain trust and favor. ‘Come on. Praise him…!’
“Yo, Your abs are very magnificent.”
‘What did I…? Ancia, are you crazy?!’
Blake may have been surprised, but he also gave strength to his grip.
No. This can’t be it. I need to fix this and get the Emperor’s favor. Come on.
“I-, I’m sorry this is my first time seeing a man’s body.”
He was so bewildered that he made the noise unconsciously. Blake was also astonished.
Even the eight-year-old kid thinks my words are ridiculous.
Ah, I’m totally screwed.
“Your majesty. Tha-, That’s not it. I was embarrassed…”
“Hmm. I don’t think you’re in a condition to have a conversation today.”
He coughed in vain and put on a black gown.
“I’ll call you soon.”
Tenstheon’s gaze passed me to Blake. A faint longing flashed through the his eyes. I bowed down and go.
“Yes, Your Majesty, I will go now.”
Blake lowered his head, too. My heart ached when I saw the two.
Blake’s expression has been dim since he met the emperor.
His father, whom he met for the first time in a long time, threw himself out, and it’s all because I made a mistake.
“I’d like to take a break and Edon, come here for a moment.”
He let go of my hand and went into his bedroom.
Your Majesty, why did you have to take a bath back then? At least wear a gown. But I shouldn’t have blamed others.
“Your highness, don’t worry. I’ll see his condition.”
