His mother’s voice was heard behind his back.
At that moment, all joy ceased.
No, it was still galloping in his blood. But he regained his composure.
This was the imperial palace. The place that sent him to the battlefield over and over again. The place that turned him into a goblin. And now with the Queen Mother behind his back…… there is the Crown Prince.
Sa Heon-yeong looked back at the Queen Mother slowly.
“Her legs are bad. It is impossible to walk any longer.”
The Crown Prince recognizes Sa Heon-yeong remarkably well. To that extent, Sa Heon-yeong could also reveal the Crown Prince’s inner thoughts as if it was his. The Crown Prince is now displeased. And he is wondering.
What words did Young-young say that saved Sa Heon-yeong.
No, the Crown Prince didn’t even know he was saved. The Crown Prince just thinks Sa Heon-yeong is feeling better. That alone would make the Crown Prince feel so uncomfortable.
A new blue shade stood in Sa Heon-yeong’s mind. As he remembered the two white feet swaying in front of his eyes, he suppressed all the joy. He shouldn’t get caught. Never.
The Queen Mother did not notice Sa Heon-yeong’s feelings. She glared at him coldly, as if she didn’t like something.
“She can at least be assisted by those below you!”
“Why should she be supported by the lower ones? Are they more reliable than me?”
Sa Heon-young snorted like that.
“King Mun, put her down.”
Her mother commands, and if it had been his former self, he would have put her down at this point. But,
“I don’t want it. Now that it’s over, I’m leaving, Queen Mother. Your Highness.”
He must get Young-young out of here as soon as possible. Sa Heon-yeong focused all his attention on the Crown Prince’s appearance behind his back.
King Mun! The Queen Mother’s voice is far away.
Sa Heon-young wanted to leave the imperial palace with Young-young in his arms. His legs were light. His steps were lighter than ever. He couldn’t wait to go.
He wanted to hold Young-young in the room. She must be smiling brightly as usual. She won’t know what she gave him. Ah, maybe she didn’t know that from the beginning.
From the moment she sings. It’s you. You made me, here I am…….
His steps stood tall and stopped.
Sa Heon-young didn’t want to look back. He knows the Crown Prince’s excellent speech-skilled tongue. A man with the same face. Two faces were not acceptable, so Sa Heon-yeong had to become a goblin. The man will use that blade-like tongue to hurt him.
Sa Heon-yeong took a moment to catch his breath and turned his head.
“Yes, Your Highness.”
“Tonight, there is a banquet, so please attend.”
“I am a newlywed,”
“You dare to protest against the Crown Prince?”
Young-young felt Sa Heon-yeong’s arms hardened. Sa Heon-yeong often carried her around like this. The physician said she had lost her leg strength because she hadn’t eaten properly for a long time.
Sa Heon-yeong told her not to go out of the bedroom whenever possible, and when she had to go out, he carried her by hugging her, and in fact, he carried her by hugging her even in the bedroom. So Young-young was very familiar with these arms.
It’s a little different from usual.
If asked what is different, it is difficult to answer, but something is definitely different. The force applied to her body was unruly, and the body that was holding her was also stiff.
It’s probably because of that person.
A person called the Crown Prince. A person who resembles Sa Heon-young. A person who is sitting in a high place now with narrowed eyes and pretending to be smiling, but is actually not smiling at all.
If she looks closely, they don’t look alike.
Sa Heon-young doesn’t smile like that. He doesn’t smile like a mask like that Crown Prince.
“…… I will attend.”
“It’s been a while since you’ve had a rest in your palace. Mother cares for you and will always take care of your palace just like you. When you get old and lonely, you will have to come back into our arms. How long will you be able to turn away? You’re not even an ownerless beast.”
She felt malice. Unknowingly, Young-young grabbed Sa Heon-yeong’s collar. She doesn’t know where the malice comes from in those words. Young-young couldn’t understand the elegant words well. She could not understand Sa Heon-yeong’s words often, so it was difficult for her to understand the meaning of the Crown Prince’s words. However, only the malice was clearly felt.
‘You’re not even an ownerless beast.’
In other words, he is a beast with a master. Sa Heon-yeong did not express much, but lowered his head.
The bride was clutching his collar. He smiled as she seemed to ask if he was okay. It wasn’t just one or two times he went through it. No matter how great a victory he sacrificed, he would hear something like this in the end.
“I’m taking my leave.”
Still, it was always bittersweet and painful, but today he couldn’t even breathe the wind that passed by his ear. He just wanted to hold this beautiful bride tightly.
Whether he’s a goblin or a beast, they can talk freely.
He’s never been a human after all. He had never been seen as a human being. Such expectations have already been abandoned in the past.
‘But Lord Heon-yeong is prettier.’
That one sweet voice was enough.
