Villainous Husband, the One You’re Obsessed With Is Over There - Chapter 5
Even though my head shouted no, my body already laid firmly on the bed.
Besides, there was no ‘original novel’ that I could refer to as what I should do because I was just an extra who appeared briefly at the end of my life. To be honest, I wasn’t even certain if the Empress who was there when Raniero met Seraphina was ‘Angelica’ or not… It was because the name of the empress did not appear in the novel.
Could it be that Angelica died soon after she got married, and the Empress in the original was someone else? The fifth Empress or something like that?
It was quite possible.
As I thought so, I sat down and glanced at Raniero, who was exhaling his breath and lowering his gaze.
‘What if he kills me because my dress is so layered that it’s boring to take off…’
It may seem like I might be overreacting, but anyone in this situation would be like me. For the first night of a young man and woman, it wasn’t a strange atmosphere either. I could see myself trembling in the reflection from Raniero’s eyes… At first glance, rather than lust or desire, his eyes were shining like a cat playing with a mouse it had caught.
“Why are you shaking like this?”
“W-wouldn’t it be normal for the bride to be nervous on the first night…”
“You keep stuttering. Is this also because of the chronic disease?”
…No, it’s not!
Even though I almost jumped and denied his words, I froze. I was really glad that I didn’t react to his words. Nevertheless, nothing else was too fortunate as Raniero’s hand reached under my back the next moment.
It was to untie the ribbon that tied my dress.
That act caused my center of gravity to shift behind me as I was being pulled backward slightly, causing my body to fall back slowly. Unknowingly, I involuntarily grabbed his shoulder as I tried not to fall backward.
“I-’m sorry. How dare I touch Your Majesty’s body…”
Raniero doesn’t like anyone touching his body recklessly… No, he really despises it.
I quickly removed my hand and bowed my head low. At the same time, I couldn’t help but hope that he would say, ‘You’ve ruined my fun,’ and leave. Even so, I’m not an idiot either, so I think I could guess how this would be going…
‘In the first place, I have no confidence to satisfy this person.’
Even though Raniero took a lot of women in the original book, he did not experience any pleasure in relationships with any of them other than Seraphina. That was not all… Having unsatisfactory relationships, his mood continually went down, this meant that he would be more difficult to please than usual. Angelica may have learned a little bit about ‘that skill’ before she got married, however…
‘…I don’t remember! I don’t know any of that—!’
I couldn’t remember anything about what Angelic was like before today, the assimilations between her body and my mind were not yet complete, it’s a pretty big deal since I have none of her memories.
“You… You’re quick-witted.”
Several thin silk ribbons were untied from behind.
I don’t know how he could untie them so well without even looking at it. Before I knew it, my bare shoulders were exposed. Still, I clasped together my unsteady hands and lowered my head nervously without moving.
“Oh? My Empress… Not bad.”
That was what he said to me.
As his cold, soft lips grazed my collarbone, the skirt of my wedding dress was pulled down.

The young Empress, who had just come of age, looked nervous all night. From the moment before the wedding and the priest arrived, she was trembling so much that if other people saw her, they might have felt sorry for her. Normally, she was forthright and clever that they couldn’t believe she was trembling so badly like this.
In the room, she continued to utter ridiculous things.
Even though Raniero was spontaneous, instinctive and well-forgotten of everything he was not interested in, as he spent the night with the Empress, he traced back the information he had heard about his bride a few days ago. Did they say she was stubborn and proud of herself…?
‘Some idiot brought the completely wrong information.’
The Empress was not arrogant at all.
Rather, she answered him quickly. She didn’t let his difficult questions slip in vain, nor did she touch his body at all. In addition, when she made a mistake, she immediately realized she was wrong and fell straight down to her knees. How many servants’ heads were cut off because they couldn’t do this properly?
How was she during their first night? While the Empress didn’t do well in satisfying him, she was trembling obediently and only kept the principle of not touching his body. He wasn’t very impressed, but…
Still, he wasn’t displeased.
Raniero was curious. He was wondering how long the Empress would be able to not offend him, and when she would make a mistake, he kept pushing her. However, she didn’t make any significant mistakes until the very end. Even after she was exhausted, she fell asleep only after Raniero gave her permission to sleep.
As the Empress fell asleep, he began to remove the tangled pins one by one from her hair. At the important wedding, there were dozens of thin, sharp pins that secured her hair so that not a single strand fell.
It must have been very annoying for her hair to be tangled and pulled while the rough behavior continued, but the Empress did not express any complaints. She never protested about the discomfort in the slightest.
As he removed the pins one by one for his fun, her hair, which had been curled and put up, began to come loose strand by strand. Her hair color that was freed resembled pink roses blooming aboundingly in the Imperial Palace garden that was dried splendidly. However, with his personality, Raniero, who was counting the hairpins one by one while listening to the even breathing of the sleeping Empress, soon got bored.
