I thought being silent meant that there were no problems in life, but is this why Gael, who used to talk a lot, became quiet?
The image of the pregnant Mother stuck in my mind, and I barely held my raging breath.
“Gael, Sister is fine. Am I not the prettiest, smartest and strongest Sister in the world? Right?”
“So Gael, stay safe here. Close your eyes and cover your ears and stay there until I kiss you on the forehead. Understand?”
Gael obeyed my words even though she was terrified. When Gael closed her eyes and covered her ears, I turned to Lili Xuen, who stood there with a puzzled look.
“Huh, hng! The upperclassmen are educating the lowerclassmen. What are those eyes-”
I quickly closed the distance between Lili Xuen and grabbed her by the collar with my left hand.
I looked at her turned face and slapped the other cheek with the back of my hand.
This alone made Lili Xuen’s lips part and her cheeks swell. The urge to break her fragile neck came up at once, but I grabbed her by the collar instead.
“Do you want to get hit more?”
Lili Xuen shook her head quickly. When I put strength in my hand that gripped her collar, I could easily lift her body that was smaller than mine.
Even if I couldn’t see it, I can guess my expression. It must have belonged to the ice doll that people used to whisper about. It will be even more grotesque and terrifying for the viewer.
The eyes looking at me were just as terrified. I glanced sideways and saw that one of the classmates was staggering as if their legs were wobbly.
I thought about breaking this fragile neck for a moment, but I’m sure she’s not the only one who I have to deal with. So I gritted my teeth and endured it because my younger sister might get hurt.
Understand it, Lili Xuen. How mad am I now.
Because you tore the indulgence you obtained for being Aurin’s younger sister with your own hands.
Until now, I have not recklessly used violence against people who are weaker than me. I thought I shouldn’t use my strength recklessly because I was born as a half-elf and was strong from the start.
But that was just my stupidity. There is no law that the other person would be like that even if I endure it.
“Why? Are you trying to tell me not to mess around because you’re going to be the Empress again?”
With the sound of a thud, Lili Xuen sat down on the floor, and only tears flowed from her eyes. She seemed to want to say something, but she just froze. Not only her lips, but also the inside of her mouth would have burst, so she wouldn’t be able to speak.
“Your names in turn.”
“Mimi of Fia-”
“Anna of Kappana-”
One person whose body was shaking eventually sat down, and the remaining four were not much different. All five of them gave their family names. I crossed my arms and looked down at them.
“Because I am a merciful person, I will give you a choice. Get down on your knees and beg to Gael,”
“Or I’d rather break your neck with my hand now.”
Lili Xuen staggered to her feet.
“You, I will tell my father and have you killed!”
She spoke with an unclear pronunciation.
This is really hopeless. Ah, I see why Aurin was trying to avoid her youngest sister, why she wants to stay so far away from Lili.
“Did you know that your father came before me and knelt down on his knees? Please, please, save the life of our youngest daughter.”
What a biased affection.
Marquis Xuen must have poured all his love into his youngest daughter. If it weren’t for her, then he wouldn’t have gone and begged on his knees.
Even in my family, there are differences in affection, so it’s not something I have the right to say…….
Perhaps because of the guilt about my younger sister getting discriminated against too, my words towards Lili Xuen were not nice.
“So I personally asked His Majesty, you stupid girl. Please don’t cut your head.”
Looking at Lili Xuen’s swollen and hesitant face, I smirked.
“Empress? You can’t figure out who will be the Empress. The special one is rather me, but you’re misunderstanding, Lili Xuen. How stupid.”
I don’t know what rumors will circulate tomorrow, no, from today, but it’s none of my business.
It doesn’t matter if the Xuen family tries to catch our family like a mouse. What is certain is that the Emperor’s power is stronger than Xuen’s, and that Emperor…….
Yes, he’s mine.
Tessvalun Neussville belonged to me, Euseniel Hardland, from a young age. I have known this very clearly for a very long time.
If I ask Xuen to kneel at my toes, he will gladly make it so. He is the one who will cut off Xuen’s head and present it before me.
The man who is the Emperor, if it were for me, he would be a tyrant.
“Choose. Whether you beg to Gael or whether you lose your neck.”
In my heart, I want to do something with those in cahoots, but not right now.
If I put too much pressure on them, they might squirm and side with Lili Xuen. That’s not what i want
Step by step, I will step on each one. I will bring Lili Xuen to despair and make her pay for what she did to Gael.
“I will not. I will not!”
I grabbed the crying Lili Xuen by the collar and asked the rest.
“Who else won’t?”
Everyone nodded their heads in unison. It’s heart-wrenching to see such a violent scene of beautifully grown young ladies. Is it not?
“You, you. You traitors!”
I smiled at Lili Xuen, who was crying out in betrayal. Yes, because making them like this now would send Lili Xuen into the abyss.
“If you’re not going to ask for forgiveness, get out of here.”
I dragged Lili Xuen straight into the path of trees that lined both sides of the road and threw her. Her legs seem to be wobbly, so it will take some time to get out of there.
Still closing her eyes as I ordered, I gently brushed up Gael’s bangs and kissed her.
I met her eyes and smiled. I carefully wrapped my hands around her ears and removed them.
“They say they have something to say to Gael. Lili Xuen must have gone somewhere because she is not feeling well.”
Gael’s mouth dropped open as I stepped aside.
“For, forgive me!”
“I’m sorry, Miss Ganiel. I was wrong.”
“I won’t do that again, so please forgive me!”
After getting down on their knees and properly cutting off the lengthy apology procession, I held Ganiel’s hand tightly.
