I Grabbed The Tyrant’S Heart - Chapter 43
Unlike me, who returned home at will, the family carriage would be waiting for Gael. As expected, nothing went beyond expectations and I returned home with Gael.
“Sister, are you okay? Is something wrong?”
My younger sister, whose face was wet, grabbed my clothes and sniffled.
“People, people said that. Xuen is scary. So, I have to listen carefully. If I don’t listen, they’ll hurt Sister, huff.”
Certainly, Xuen is great. Even though Lili Xuen was punished, people continued to talk to Nus Xuen. When I heard the names of the families he hung out with, there were families that were quite familiar to me.
But it’s me who has the upper hand.
“Yes, Gael. Not too long ago, at breakfast time.”
I held my younger sister’s white cheek.
“The morning when May sent Baker’s jam and ate it. There was an old man who suddenly came into the dining room and made a fuss? I remember?”
“Yes, I remember.”
“The man who knelt on his knees in front of Sister at that time is Lili Xuen’s father.”
Gael’s eyes, still filled with tears, widened.
“Yes. If Xuen is strong, will Lili Xuen’s father kneel to Sister?”
It’s not exactly my power, but the Emperor’s power.
I thought I shouldn’t use the Emperor’s power. I made up my mind that I should not see the child who selflessly said he liked me as a tool.
But because of me, my younger sister was kicked out of the capital while she was in Mother’s stomach and lost the power she deserved. I decided to break the rules I set for my younger sister who was in pain.
“So don’t worry. Sister is the greatest and strongest person in the world. Got it?”
“Uh, hng, Huu, huff. Actually, I was scared. Gael was very scared. Uwaaah.”
After coming to the Empire, Gael spoke much less. I thought she had grown up. She must have been having a bit of a hard time adjusting to the atmosphere, but I thought she was doing well…….
This is a disaster caused by my indifference to this world.
I realized once again how cold and cruel the world I am in is. And the fact that I, who was ignoring reality, had to change it.
I made plans in my head one by one in my head, hugging my sobbing sister until my blouse was all wet.
First, tell my parents first.
“Mother, I have something to tell you.”
When the two daughters returned home side by side, Mother nodded her head and dragged me into the room.
“I had an accident.”
Mother’s complexion darkened as I explained everything that had happened at the academy. Fortunately, she didn’t lash out at me for my actions.
“It’s my fault. I should have paid close attention to Gael.”
“It’s fine now.”
I bluntly brought my words out.
“I know that Mother and Father give me undeserved affection. Instead, Gael was pushed to the back seat. I was worried that I might have bad thoughts out of guilt.”
“It’s not always like that, Euel.”
Mother answered calmly.
“Even if Gael asks, me and Millen will answer like this. You are our precious child.”
It was the first time my parents directly said that I was more important than Gael.
I felt it with my skin, but it felt strange to hear such a definite answer. I couldn’t even ask why. Mother’s face was dark and her voice was hushed. That’s why her answer felt heavy.
For me, who had to deal with Gael’s affairs on my own, I heard a warning sound that I would not be able to afford to dig into this matter any further.
“Anyway, I should pay more attention to Gael. This is my mistake So, Euel, don’t blame yourself.”
I looked at Mother, who smiled faintly, and answered with difficulty, “Yes,” before adding another word.
“Don’t be surprised by what I do in the future.”
Mother nodded her head slowly.
Second, ask for forgiveness from Aurin. To be honest, it’s closer to a notification than to ask.
Obviously, today’s matter must have gone to Marquis Xuen, but I did not know how it would turn out. More likely to find me displeasing, I decided to ask Ethyl instead of contacting Aurin directly.
To the Imperial Palace Knights, I left a letter saying I would come in the evening.
One to Ethyl, one to Aurin.
The gist of the letter to Aurin was, ;This happened today between my sister and Lili Xuen, and I feel sorry for you, but I will continue to take revenge on Lili Xuen.”
To Ethyl, I explained the situation of the day, why I wanted to deliver a letter to Aurin instead, and I even left a request for an answer.
Ethyl would definitely do it. Even if he nags me.
As expected, my sincere friend gave me an answer even though it was late in the evening. Aurin’s reply was concise.
– I really don’t care, so don’t worry.
This must be true, since Aurin is not the kind of person to make up answers. It means that Aurin will not turn away from me, at least with what happened today. It was clear to me how serious Lili Xuen was usually, and how deep the rift between Aurin and Lili Xuen was.
Third, secure strong reinforcements.
I even got a reply from Aurin, so I didn’t have to hesitate.
The next day, as soon as morning classes were over, I headed to the imperial palace. I wasn’t sure if this was okay until the moment I stepped into the library once to catch my breath.
No, I honestly think it’s a bit bad.
However, if I want to end this quickly, this is the fastest way.
I sat in my seat in the restricted area and caught my breath when Tess appeared in an instant. DId he come after the morning assembly?
I stared suspiciously, but my childhood friend smiled and sat next to me. He still has a bad complexion, but it’s much better than before.
I don’t know if making a sick person deal with it is a good thing.
“What is Euseniel doing here? Are you here to see me?”
