A Kind Goblin's Bird - Chapter 55
And it was because of the Crown Prince that he became the inspector in the first place. The Emperor was suffering because of his son. The Crown Prince’s cruelty was already well known. Someone had to cover this up. The Crown Prince, who was suffering from such illness, eventually summoned Sa Heon-yeong, who was on the battlefield.
‘It’s the Crown Prince’s job.’
At that word, Sa Heon-yeong had to organize everything and come up to Yangan. And he became the inspector general and became the Crown Prince’s powerful sword. He dealt with the Crown Prince’s enemies and took control of the court on his behalf.
The Crown Prince lacked patience. He did what he wanted to do while abandoning the things he had to endure. All of those things became Sa Heon-yeong’s responsibility. Now that the Emperor was in recuperation, the work of the court was divided between the Crown Prince and Sa Heon-yeong. One was in charge of the light and the other was in charge of the darkness.
“Court Lady Yoon.”
When Sa Heon-yeong came out to the yard, Court Lady Yoon bowed and said, “The lowly maid is serving His Highness King Mun .” The court ladies who came with Court Lady Yoon were also seen bowing together.
“What’s your business?”
“I came from Her Majesty the Empress to inform you that Her Highness Queen Moon has been told to keep the law.”
“For the bride to meet her in-laws*.”
Sa Heon-young folded his arms, thinking of Young-young who had just fallen asleep after being tortured until dawn. To meet her in-laws. They want her to wake Young-young up, have her do pyebaek? Words that couldn’t even be spoken.
“As the Crown Prince said, it is a bit difficult to set a human example because I have the body of a beast.”
“I don’t have the heart or time to deal with you, so just leave.”
Sa Heon-yeong was born as a goblin. He knows that too. That they were twins. It is said that twins are not born from the noble blood of the imperial family.
Well, how can he guarantee that? Young-young is right. He has the same blood, how can he be a goblin? He doesn’t even use magic and has no horns. But his parents defined him as a goblin, so he will become a goblin until the day he dies. The age of shame has passed.
His life has already been decided. It’s enough to live like this. It’s a threatened life as if riding a single rope, but Sa Heon-young has been riding a single rope since he was young. He was the best at riding a single rope. However,
Don’t even think about putting his Young-young in there.
‘Sir Heon-young is prettier.’
Not that lovely woman.
Sa Heon-yeong’s eyes, wearing the goblin mask, sank cold.
The Goblin King has officially welcomed a Goblin Queen.
Numerous gifts came to his wedding, the chief inspectorate of the imperial court. One afternoon, there was a battle of nerves between the servants who had to carry gifts for several carts a day and the maids who sort the gifts.
Song Geun-ryang came to Mun Palace with his family members.
“My name is Ha Soye, who is in charge of King Mun’s palace.”
The gates of King Mun’s palace were huge and high. Song Geun-ryang was discouraged right from the front door. There was no comparison with his own mansion. Everything was perfect. And even this butler Ha Soye who came to meet him.
A female butler.
In the Sun dynasty, everyone who has some money wants to have a female butler. But the butler is the position in charge of the household. It is a position that only educated people can handle, and there are few women who want to work despite receiving such an education.
Thus, the female butler was like a symbol of power and wealth. If it was a female butler who received court education, it was a real bonus. It could be said that it was more precious than a roof covered with gold.
“I will guide you here.”
‘What matters if that bitch became a Queen, she can’t look down on us! She’s just an illegitimate child!’
Song Rayang, who had been shouting so dignifiedly, also bit her mouth tightly as she was guided inside.
It was a beautiful garden. There were those that were sure to have a huge value for each garden stone. A garden where even a grain of sand must have been counted, and there was no room for a drop of water to go wrong. They were careful while walking through the long corridor.
The servants who greeted the guests fell to their knees. The clothes the servants wore were pure white. The clothes that were worn by maids in Song Geun-ryang’s mansion. Such clothes were to be worn by servants in the imperial family. Song Geun-ryang’s wife bit her lip softly. When she goes home, she will change the maids’ clothes first.
*현구고례: This was a folk wedding rite. The reason why ML was displeased was because the rites are quite tedious. So the rite wasn’t just to meet the in-laws and done, but it involved offering and bowing, even to the grandparents. There is also another rite done in a shrine three days later.
