A Kind Goblin's Bird - Chapter 18
Court Lady Yoon called out to King Mun with a feeling that she was about to run out of breath.
Others call him the Demon King, but to her, Sa Heon-yeong, a man who is her proud King Mun, was holding a woman and frowning. His face looked annoyed and irritated, but Court Lady Yoon couldn’t step down.
Last night, rumors that the Demon King had brought in a concubine swept the entire Imperial Palace.
As soon as the Empress heard the rumors, she only greeted the Empress Dowager and rejected all of the greetings she would receive. She immediately ordered Court Lady Yoon to come and check if the rumor was true or if such an honorable woman existed.
The Fourth prince, Sa Heon-yeong, has circumstances, and since he was four years old, he received the emperor’s command and wore a red goblin mask.
In fact, his face was very fine. No, it wasn’t just the point of being fine, he was quite a beautiful young man. However, he wore a goblin mask and was uncomfortable being in the Imperial Palace, so he volunteered to wander the battlefield from an early age.
Sa Heon-yeong was a spineless man. In addition to the natural environment of the imperial palace, he learned great martial arts from an early age. He gained experience by roaming the battlefield and was not afraid to do anything in the vanguard, so wherever he was, the morale of the military seemed to skyrocket.
As a result, the enemy began to spread rumors about him. In the end, vague and bizarre rumors began to circulate, such as drinking blood or enjoying human flesh.
So, any woman in the imperial palace became reluctant to enter King Mun’s palace.
Sa Heon-yeong had no concubines, and no descendants. It was frustrating for his mother, the Empress. Most of the generations have a family by the time they are 18, but her son has not been able to form a family.
She then invited a priest to perform a rite…… How glad the mother’s heart must have been to hear that Sa Heon-yeong returned to the imperial palace with a woman in his arms at night, just when the Empress’s heart was burning like that.
The Empress was out of her mind since the early morning. Should she send a gift, make a kiln, or have her enter the palace? Even while she went to greet the Empress Dowager, she continued to talk to Court Lady Yoon with a smile on her face the whole time.
But, who is that woman?
She’s small. She is too small. She is too skinny. Besides, even though she is an ordinary woman, she can’t be held by a man like that and goes out in front of a court lady, but she is calm. Is she a family’s young lady? No, she’s that small. Is she by any chance young?
If King Mun is thirty and the woman is twelve or thirteen, isn’t it strange? She can’t tell a child who hasn’t even had her first blood yet to receive a man. She can’t guess her age because she couldn’t see her face.
– At the moment while she was thinking.
‘The Lady will soon become my wife.’
Court Lady Yoon called him, “Your Highness.” Then the woman he was holding in his arms stuck out her head and looked at her.
No matter how nice the fool-like face was, it was difficult to say that she was a beauty. In fact, in Court Lady Yoon’s eyes, who had seen all the beauties of the world at the Imperial Palace, she could only see a pale color.
“She was not chosen by the Empress… !”
How would such a thin woman give birth to a child, and how would she set the dignity as a Queen?
“Court Lady Yoon.”
King Mun cut her words coldly. Court Lady Yoon shut her lips, and King Mun clicked his tongue.
“I’m going to greet her in the afternoon, so please leave.”
“Your Highness, I,”
“To what extent should the King and Wife have to exchange words with the lowly?”
It was a tone colder than the sharp wind. When Court Lady Yoon didn’t say anything for a moment and looked up at him, King Mun said.
“I am showing patience by thinking about my childhood, Court Lady Yoon.”
Court Lady Yoon recalled his childhood. At one time he trusted her unconditionally. And one day.
…… Court Lady Yoon has never forgotten that day. That day, Sa Heon-young’s gaze remained forever in her heart. She closed her eyes
Yes, I betrayed you.
Court Lady Yoon recalled everything she had forgotten for a moment, as if she were his nanny and mother. She had a family to attend to. She was forced to obey orders.
As Sa Heon-yeong said, she was lowly, and all the people she was dealing with were noble people. She had to be very good at tightrope walking.
It was not a betrayal from her point of view.
But for him, it was a betrayal.
Court Lady Yoon looked up at King Mun. King Mun probably remembered the same day. He grabbed the woman in his arms. Like clenching his fists. Then.
The woman giggled.
The woman, perhaps unaware of the harsh atmosphere between King Mun and Court Lady Yoon, simply shrugged her shoulders and endured the tickling. When Court Lady Yoon, who really thought the woman was truly a fool, frowned.
King Mun smiled brightly.
Court Lady Yoon raised Sa Heon-yeong. Even though he was covered with a red goblin mask, she could tell if King Mun was smiling or grimacing. King Mun considers her to be a traitor, but she still regards him as a child she raised. So she was able to recognize it quickly.
