King Mun smiled and hugged the woman a little, then hugged her tightly and apologized, “I’m sorry.” There was no longer any shadow of anger in that voice.
The woman shook her head.
“We should get married soon.”
King Mun murmured. Does he know what voice he is speaking in? He sounded like he was clinging. Court Lady Yoon bit her lip.
“Really, was my father okay with it?”
Asked the woman in a worried tone.
King Mun answered happily, and he kissed her forehead. The kiss was over the mask, but the woman still closed her eyes.
King Mun disappeared with the woman in his arms. Court Lady Yoon looked at him until his dignified back completely disappeared, then became dizzy and touched her head.
Then the court ladies, who accompanied her, hurried to support her, calling “Madam!” Court Lady Yoon raised her hand and refused the supports, and she fell into thought.
Father, the woman spoke of her father.
…… Which house’s woman was she?
She’ll try to find out from there. Court Lady Yoon’s eyes went cold.
When King Mun entered the bedroom with the Queen in his arms, the maids followed carefully. Each of the maids had a neat and elegant appearance, and there was no sound of footsteps. The maids, dressed in pure white, knelt and bowed down when King Mun laid the Queen down on the bed.
The woman in the front smiled kindly and spoke politely.
“My name is Soye, who will be in charge of Her Highness from today. I will regard it as an honor to meet you.”
Soye was rather proud of her squeamishness when the master’s most difficult sarcasm fit like a tongue in her mouth, but the other person didn’t even look at her. The Queen, who would become her master, glanced at the maids and grabbed King Mun’s collar.
The maids swallowed a groan inside as they watched King Mun’s collar wrinkle with the rough, dry fingers like branches.
King Mun is a terrifying superior. Even if he decided her to be his queen, he was someone who could easily chop her neck in an instant if he didn’t like her.
The maids trembled inwardly, fearing that they would see some kind of blood.
But from last night, King Mun seemed not to be himself.
“What’s the matter?”
King Mun knelt down on his knees and made eye contact with the Queen.
The maids gulped in a different way this time.
Who is under that goblin mask that is so sweet? A little while ago, he was himself while with Court Lady Yoon, but the one who treated the Queen was a different person.
“Where…. Are you going?”
The woman’s eyes were severely troubled. Sa Heon-yeong suddenly thought about what it would be like to leave this woman behind. Will she be scared and cry waiting for him? What does that feel like? It can be satisfying and heartbreaking. Either way, it must feel human.
“I’m not going anywhere.”
Sa Heon-young kissed the woman’s forehead. The woman’s body smelled of the perfume he had chosen.
“Your Highness, I will serve you with all my heart. Please guide me well.”
Jae-ran, a young but tactful maid, crept on her knees closer. The woman relaxed a little by the maid’s gentle face.
Like a fox. The maids smiled bitterly inside. Although Jae-ran’s face looked mild, the insides were toxic. Sa Heon-young laughed inside as well. But only the woman was deceived by the gentle face and nodded her head a little.
Bathing the woman, Sa Heon-yeong can do it, but he’s just overdressing her. In the Sun dynasty, women’s clothing was very complicated, as men also wore it. It was not something that could be figured out with some tricks in a day or two, so Sa Heon-yeong hid his regret and handed over the woman to the maids.
Surrounded by the maids, the woman hesitated and looked back at Sa Heon-yeong. The trust in her eyes is just clear. Sa Heon-young smiled brightly because he was very happy about it.
“I will be here.”
The woman nodded her head.
In the Sun dynasty, the high-ranking officials usually had women as their attendants. However, among the women, it was difficult to find those with a high enough education to work as attendants. So, the higher the rank was, the more they had attendants.
Ha Soye was a court lady, and she had strong bones. She has been waiting for Queen Mun while strictly managing King Mun’s matters. And finally, King Mun had brought the Queen.
Soye carefully attended to the Queen. Soye’s eyes became as sharp as a blade when the hands of the maids became rough, even a little. The maids who were already touching with soft hands acted cautiously as if they were touching a bubble doll.
Soye, who dealt with the maids with her bloody gaze, looked closely at the Queen, who was unfamiliar with the attendants.
Let me see, let me see.
Every time the Queen and her eyes met, Soye opened her eyes and smiled brightly.
She thought the woman was too thin, but she looked better than Soye thought. But she was too skinny.
For the time being, she will focus her energy on gaining weight. Still, the features are pretty high-end. Soye can’t say the woman was intelligent, but she has gentle, big eyes, an elegant nose bridge, and thick, sensual lips instead of small ones. Although her body was full of scars, her face was flawless, and her skin was flawless, even though it was not smooth.
