A Kind Goblin's Bird - Chapter 83
“Did he show up to work?”
The Crown Prince frowned.
“Already? It was only a few days ago that the beloved wife died and he went crazy in the valley of sinners.
“Yes, Your Highness. It is said that the delayed work is almost finished.”
When the Grand Eunuch, who was at the position of the emperor’s assistant, bowed his head politely, the Crown Prince snorted and threw away the scroll with agitation.
As the Crown Prince of the Empire, it is natural to assume the role of the Emperor’s right hand. It feels good to feel like an emperor. But it’s annoying to see the scrolls. Documents all the time about what went wrong.
He was tired and upset. Why the hell does he have to listen to the stories of things that are even worse than bugs? The Crown Prince clicked his tongue and picked up a drink.
“Is the work finished? It must have been a considerable amount.”
“That eyesore bastard.”
Some people who knew that Sa Heon-yeong was the Crown Prince’s twin would gossip very secretly. Could it actually have changed? Which one is the goblin and which one is the Crown Prince? Was the Empress not mistaken? His Highness the Crown Prince’s disposition is like…….
That goblin did not know its place and entered into a noble womb, so the damage was great. Those who should look up to and respect the Crown Prince are often suspicious.
Maybe, maybe, they talked. While not being able to say a word in front of the Emperor, Empress, and the Crown Prince himself. Those who rub their hands, bow their backs, desperate to please.
When he turned around, they put a suspicious look behind his back. Maybe that’s the goblin over there?
Is that possible? How could they not distinguish between low blood and precious blood? Even though he put on a goblin mask, why can’t they tell them apart?
“I should have just locked him up.”
The Crown Prince regretted it.
The eunuch, the Crown Prince’s henchman, asked curiously.
“Heon-yeong. Until he was four years old, he was raised in prison. Heon-yeong asked when the weak-minded Father stopped by to see Heon-yeong. Can I go out if I wear a mask?”
The Grand Eunuch also knew about it. He served the emperor for over forty years, and he meticulously remembered most of these brother’s incidents.
“It seemed that the Emperor did not want him to wear a mask, but the Empress was against it. It’s normal. Giving birth to a goblin is a shame for a woman. It’s better to die.”
“I chose the mask.”
He wanted to keep Heon-young in cages for the rest of his life and feed him, but he couldn’t bear to see Heon-young walking around wearing that mask. In the end, impulse prevailed.
Twenty-six years since then.
Sa Heon-yeong’s mask was always chosen by the Crown Prince. Every time he heard a rumor that a terrifying goblin was drinking blood and eating human flesh, he laughed. It was fun.
Even if he tore a bitch to pieces and killed it, he didn’t get enough fun. Sa Heon-young was special. A goblin with his own face. Those pitiful eyes that struggle to be human. Every time he saw that pathetic soul longing for their mother, he was so happy that it was hard to bear. Heon-young was truly a special beast.
“My poor and pitiful little brother. The masks were always hand-picked by me. How pitiful.”
The red goblin mask.
The hideous mask was chosen by the Crown Prince. The Grand Eunuch lowered his eyes without saying a word.
The Crown Prince’s bad hobbies didn’t happen just yesterday and today. For King Mun, it was still a bit better to wear. People, regardless of gender or age, suddenly died. The emperor is preserving his place today and tomorrow, and the empress listened to whatever the Crown Prince said.
As the power of the emperor weakened, the power of the Empress Dowager, the largest power of the imperial family, also weakened. The Crown Prince, who was the representative of the Emperor and had the full trust of the Empress on his back, became the absolute power.
“I can’t believe he’s come to his senses, so that love was nothing special then?”
Only the dead are pitiful. The Crown Prince shook his head. Then he said, “Oh,” and looked back at the Grand Eunuch.
“Does Heon-young know yet? Why did his wife die?”
“….… I’m sorry. I don’t know…….”
“I have to tell him in person on our birthday. That lowly one died running around without knowing her place, but it means that she was devoted to Heon-yeong, so shouldn’t I have mercy? No matter what I say, it’s my sister-in-law, but if there’s any resentment left, I’m in trouble.”
A single smile appeared on the Crown Prince’s face.
“If he knew that she said, “Will you recognize him as your son when I’m deposed?”
“Will he shed tears of blood again?”
