Be Indulged - Chapter 11
Translator and Editor: Effe and Yonnee
“I can’t live with him, really.”
Colin looked at Amelia in a cold sweat. Amelia had an annoyed expression on her face, but her hand gently caressed her swollen belly.
“What do you mean you can’t live with… You’re not referring to His Majesty, are you?”
“It is His Majesty.”
Amelia’s eyebrows scrunched up. The clothes that Amelia wore were the most expensive of all, and the accessories she wore were small but they had the delicate artisanal quality of a good craftsman. In other words, she bore the mark of the cherished love from His Majesty who she said she couldn’t live with.
“What’s wrong now?”
“He ordered the construction of an indoor carriage.”
“An indoor carriage. I guess he was going to stop me walking on the ground on my own two feet because I almost fell just once.”
“I stopped him from trying to kill the shoemaker, and now he’s doing this. I’m going crazy.”
“So, Sister, what do you mean by indoor carriage?”
“I heard from Carl that he wanted to put rods under a comfortable chair and for the attendants to carry me with it.”
“He said to me, ‘Isn’t this a good idea?’ How could it possibly be a good idea? I am not a package, and they are not porters either.”
“So I got angry. Because he shouldn’t have made that kind of fuss, right?”
Colin burst into laughter at Amelia’s words. In the end, it was a lovers’ fight. With a bright expression on his face, Colin had to hold back his laughter as he imagined Carlos who would have been scolded by Amelia as he explained the indoor carriage.
“Besides, I gained weight.”
“You didn’t gain much.”
Amelia returned to the fuller look that Colin remembered. That’s exactly what Carlos did.
“Please accept his concerns as well.”
“It’s not like you almost fell because Sister kept walking around.”
It wasn’t just the body that returned to its original state. She had returned to his cheerful sister, who loved and cared for the six-year-old Colin back then.
“But it’s frustrating to just stay inside. I know it’s a nuisance too. But you know.”
“Yes, I know. The Imperial Palace is sometimes stuffy.”
“I’m jealous that you can go out, Colin.”
“What are you talking about?”
At fifteen, Colin came of age and he became the count. Their uncles and aunts graciously handed over the Count’s position. No, Carlos made it that way. Recalling Carlos at that time, Colin smiled.
Amelia flinched at the horribly soft voice. Because Carlos was standing right behind her.
“You want to go out, what do you mean?”
“It’s, it’s frustrating…”
“You almost fell, so you’re thinking of going out and having an accident?”
“Carl, I’m sorry. It’s not…”
“It’s been a while, Your Majesty.”
When they showed signs of a fight, Colin greeted them beforehand. Carlos looked at Colin swiftly and said hello.
“It’s been a while, Colin, no, brother-in-law. No, no, should I call you Count Laszlo?”
“It doesn’t matter either way.”
“Then let’s call you Colin. I heard the news that you came for a visit. It was surprising that Amelia was saying something like this.”
“Carl, you really…!”
“Did she say about the indoor carriage? There’s a reason for that too. The place where she fell was the stairs, so the baby and Amelia were almost in danger. It was an inevitable choice for me.”
“That is dangerous.”
Ignoring Amelia’s words, Colin and Carlos chatted. Colin thought it was not unreasonable for Carlos to do so.
“She used to just sit and read books, but now she keeps wandering around the Imperial Palace. Of course, that’s a good thing, but it’s always a concern… What do you think?”
“Colin, don’t be fooled! I almost fell down the stairs, but I only got my foot twisted for a moment. I just lost my balance.”
“When I listened to Sister, I thought that Your Majesty was being fussy, but Your Majesty is right.”
“Collin, how could you!”
Amelia shouted in a betrayed voice, but Carlos and Colin looked at each other and giggled and laughed. Then Amelia couldn’t stand it any longer and got up.
“It looks like the two of you have become very close except for me, so do whatever you want!”
She glared at Carlos and Colin with distasteful eyes, and then went outside.
“Sister, if you think so…”
Colin smiled mischievously.
“What to do about this? It will take some time to relieve Sister’s anger.”
Carlos said with a relaxed expression. Colin smiled.
“Your Majesty seems to be relaxed.”
“Because we are always together.”
Especially at night. But Carlos omitted it. Colin burst out laughing at those words and looked towards the doorway and then stared at Carlos. Suddenly, the smile on his face disappeared and his face became serious.
“It’s all over.”
Carlos raised the corners of his lips. He swiped his finger across the lips of Amelia’s teacup and drank the tea gracefully.
“So, Colin, can you tell me about your handiwork?”
“I disguised it as being attacked by bands of thieves.”
“He almost fainted as soon as I took off the mask.”
“His nephew is trying to kill him, so that’s understandable.”
“Six years have been a very painful time for me and my sister. All the while, I was looking for a chance to get revenge on those beasts.”
“I always thought that those humans would kill me anytime. After my father passed away and they took me away from my sister, they looked at me with eyes like something needed to be dealt with. In fact, I almost died a few times. Your Majesty then saved me, right?”
“Strictly speaking, it’s not me but Sir Reinkel. I told the Sir to protect you from your family somehow.”
“Thank you for your grace.”
Colin bowed his head.
“I heard that thank you last time, so let’s stop. So won’t you tell me how you did it?”
“First, I stabbed him to death. He died slowly at the hands of his nephew who he was about to kill. My aunt saw it and screamed loudly.”
“I asked my aunt to eat the poisonous meal that she occasionally gave me. She struggled not to eat it, but she ate it anyway.”
Carlos decided to leave the ‘how’ to eat those foods as a pleasant imagination.
“And Sister Natalia went crazy that way.”
“Hmm, that’s not fun. That woman named Natalia must have been the worst. So what happened? Did you put her in the red light district?”
Colin looked at him. He only had the right concept if it was for Amelia. He only thought that he should be kind to Amelia, not to be kind to women. To him, everyone else held no value. Only the meaningful ones mattered, and it didn’t matter if the others died. Even if it’s his ‘brother’.
“I didn’t want to use the dirty things that Sister experienced. I sent her to the wilderness of the North.”
“I said she’s a noble, but she will probably live on her own.”
“That’s even more brutal.”
“Because I learned from your Majesty.”
Colin learned a lot while under Carlos. Amelia called Colin a good and tender little brother, but Colin had a boiling thirst for vengeance. Carlos noticed it and gave him several tips. He ‘doesn’t have to be nice’ if he can hide it, that’s what Colin learned from Carlos.
Colin felt both fear and awe of Carlos, who imprisoned Natalia without the knowledge of Empress Amelia. The reason he did that was to ensure a smooth succession for Colin.
“That’s right, we’re both like this, so it would be very sad if Amelia found out.”
“Sister just needs to be at peace in your world.”
At Colin’s words, Carlos smiled and reached out and stroked Colin’s head.
“You can do whatever you want. You are free to kill everyone who treated you Amelia badly. Don’t worry, I’ll take care of everything.”
“Thank you, Your Majesty, for your magnanimous grace.”
Colin said politely. Then there was a knock on the door. When Carlos answered, the maid Rose came in. Looking between Colin and Carlos, the maid spoke.
“Her Majesty said, ‘I can’t believe you didn’t look for me when I storm out, so you two live well.'”
Before the words could be finished, Carlos and Colin stood up at the same time.
“Is she that angry?”
“First of all, she’s pregnant.”
“Damn, I heard that being sad at this time will last a lifetime.”
Colin’s face grew paler when he heard those words.
“Let’s go find your sister!”
As the two men ran out of the room, there was no longer any sign of the vicious, cold-blooded seriousness on their faces.
