I'm In Trouble Because My Husband Is So Cute - Chapter 2
Translator and Editor: Effe and Nabi
She was the wife of the Heir Apparent, who was already authorized by the Imperial Family. So, Iellie deserved the right to use the surname ‘Hessenweitz,’ still, the employees referred to her as ‘Lady Blanchett.’
The maid said. “I will guide you to your room.”
However, Iellie doesn’t point that out first. She instinctively felt that the people of this castle do not welcome her. Even though the family’s only heir has welcomed his companion, the Duke’s Castle was silent, and neither the Duke nor the Heir Apparent came out.
Besides, the room assigned to her was a guest room.
‘Is it possible that the courtesy of the duke is only to the emperor?’
Sitting alone in the room, which was ornately decorated, of the Duke’s Castle, Iellie lulled in her heart. She didn’t even want the room reserved for the mistress, but isn’t it too negligent for her to receive a guest room?
As she frowned her brows intensely, there was a knock. She replied, swallowing her sigh.
“Greetings, Lady Blanchett. This is Mary, who will be serving the Lady temporarily.”
A maid came in and bowed her head deeply. Iellie shook her head, trying to point out the title problem.
“Yes, nice to meet you. Though, where are the Duke and the Heir Apparent?”
“Ah…well. The Duke is inspecting the territory, and the Heir Apparent is currently defeating the beasts.”
“…Wait a minute. Did you say ‘defeating beasts’?”
Iellie immediately questioned her ears, ‘she said he’s subjugating the beast?’ But Mary just replied softly.
“Yes, it’s a normal thing. Last time, he participated directly in the defeat of the northern barbarians.”
“Well, I mean. The Heir Apparent, following the defeat of the barbarians, went straight out to the beasts’ subjugation?”
“That’s right. He went to the barbarian troops by himself and even cut the supply of the captain.”
‘Oh, this is a little…? Cutting their supply?’ When it comes to the Heir Apparent, Mary was definitely referring to the only son of the Duke and the person who will be her husband, right? However, as far as she knows, his age is…
“…Am I wrong about something? Isn’t the Heir Apparent not an adult yet?”
Iellie carefully expressed her doubts, concealing her astonishment. As she knew, the Heir Apparent is fifteen this year.
He’s not even mature yet.
Such a kid directly participates in a dangerous battle? This is juvenile abuse, exploitation of minors. There’s a limit to strong teaching. What if he gets hurt or dies?
“Yes, that’s right. Still, isn’t it great to participate in the battle and build merit?”
“Uh… Is that so?”
Standing in front of Mary, who innocently smiled, Iellie lost her words. ‘Is this something to pass on as a great compliment?’
Putting a fifteen-year-old boy on the perilous battlefield, and more importantly, he’s also the duke’s successor? One problem was, it seemed natural to the people here.
‘But still…Being the Heir Apparent doesn’t mean that you can live comfortably, but this is bad, isn’t it?’
This was not good luck for her future husband. A fifteen-year-old boy fighting with barbarians and beasts for life and death. …Will she become widowed? Iellie swallowed dry saliva.
“Then, when will the Heir Apparent come back?”
“It will probably take about a week. And…”
Mary, who was hesitant, opened her lips. As she knew, what she was going to say was rude, so she felt sorry.
“The Duke said that it would be better to see together when the Heir Apparent comes.”
Iellie nodded her head. This made it clear.
The duke did not welcome her, nor did he spare his only son, the Heir Apparent. If he loved the Heir Apparent, he couldn’t let him go into such a dangerous battle.
“I’ll send the meal to your room now. Would that be all right?”
“Okay, thank you. You can go.”
Iellie nodded again calmly. It would be uncomfortable to eat in the dining room anyway.
Mary left with a bow. Somehow, the future felt dark, and she swallowed her sigh. ‘I guess the rumors that the Duke doesn’t spare the Heir Apparent is true.’
The Duke of Hessenweitz was the only Duchy family of the Empire, and a family with a strong power that was comparable to the Imperial Family.
No matter how disgusting the rumors about the Heir Apparent were, there must be people who covet wealth and power.
‘Even so, the reason why there is no family who wants to marry the Heir Apparent is probably because the duke neglects the Heir Apparent.’
He did not try to build any relationship with the Heir Apparent, as though he was a grape that could not be eaten. Moreover, in a normal family, one would not send their beloved daughter to a rumored man who was a monster.
‘It’s a complicated problem in many ways… It seems that the Heir Apparent is a little pitiful.’
At that time, the outside of the window became noisy. Iellie, who got up from her seat, glanced out of the window slightly.
A carriage was moving into the Duke’s Castle.
The employees went out and greeted. The owner of the luxury carriage with the crest of a family, in which flowers and silver dragons are elaborately intertwined is probably…
‘That must be the Duke of Hessenweitz.’
After a frustrating day, she opened her eyes wide, staring at the man who came out of the carriage.
The duke was a handsome man with dark blue hair and blue eyes, filled with a cold impression. His shape is slender, giving the overall feeling of elegance. He went into the building after being greeted by the employees.
‘…He didn’t look as bad as I thought.’
The rumors were so terrible, so she was worried that he would look like a monster. That’s very compliant.
‘If so, can I expect my husband’s appearance as well?’
Still, she doesn’t have any clue about him. Iellie tilted her head and laughed lightly. Her gaze gradually sharpened.
‘Although the Royal Palace does not want to admit it… Hessenweitz is powerful.’ The flowers of the Duchy are drawn proudly on the coat of arms hung on the carriage. The high-esteemed Royal Family was openly checked against the Duke, but nevertheless, they couldn’t prevent him from using the flowers used as the royal crest.
The use of symbols from the Royal Family proves the power of the Duke.
Iellie tilted her head and sighed.
What would the duke, who doesn’t even care about his son, think about the daughter-in-law who was forced to marry by the Imperial Family? Perhaps life in the Duchy is not that easy.
For about a week, she had a glimpse into how the people here thought and treated her.
It’s not as though they don’t serve her. What she got is acceptable at best. However, all of that was not a respect for the Duke’s companion, but thorough hospitality to the guests.
“It’s rather comfortable to be treated like this, but… I can’t do this forever.”
Iellie, who slumped on the bed, grumbled a little. Regardless, she was legally the wife of the Duke’s Heir Apparent, but it was rather weird that she was only treated as a guest.
But then, a little fuss broke out outside the room.
As she tilted her head, she rose up.
After a while, Mary entered the room with a short knock. She seemed a little excited. Iellie looked puzzled.
“What’s going on? It’s a little noisy around here…”
Mary looked a little embarrassed and faced her. She then tried to smile.
“The Heir Apparent is back.”
‘No, my legal husband is back?’ She opened her eyes wide and asked Mary back.
“Yes, that’s right.”
“Then, if I go out now, will I be able to see the Heir Apparent?”
Iellie hurriedly picked up her cup and took a sip to hydrate her dry mouth. However, Mary hurriedly dissuaded her as she tried to get out of the room. She shook her head and opened her lips.
“Not today, how about meeting him tomorrow?”
“What are you talking about? You said he’s back now. I deserve to meet him…”
“The time, it’s too late.”
She once again tried to stop Iellie. At that moment, she felt somewhat suspicious and faced Mary.
‘Something’s a little weird.’
It’s been a week since she came to the Duchy, yet she had never met her legal husband. And today, her husband, who had been fighting a dangerous beast, returned. In common sense, there was no reason for Mary to tell her to meet him tomorrow because of the mere reason that the time was late.
She shook her head firmly.
“No, I must see my husband today.”
When she gave strength to the word ‘husband,’ Mary couldn’t even stop her anymore.
She ran down the long stairs. The moment she saw the Duke and the knights standing, she swallowed a gulp. ‘What the hell is this situation?’
The first person to come into view was a boy, mixed among with the sturdy knights. The boy standing alone among the savage knights was as beautiful as a heavenly being.
Although. He had a desolate face.
‘I guess he’s my legal husband… Is he seriously hurt?’
While the knights were relatively fine, the boy was full of wounds, as if he was fighting alone. Red blood dried up on his silver hair, shining like a pure white snowfield, and the skinny body was also covered with blood.
Iellie bit her lips. It seemed that the blood must have been the boy’s blood.
‘Isn’t he hurt? No, if he doesn’t rest and get treatment right now…’
But even though he was hurt so badly, the boy doesn’t lift an eyebrow. The Duke also did not intend to take care of his son’s wounds. He looked down at his son in an arrogant look, and the Heir Apparent also silently accepted the gaze. The Duke spoke with a cold expression as if it was made of ice.
“You’re late. I ordered the beast subjugation to be finished within three days.”
“If you are established as the heir of the Duke, you should at least carry out your orders well, you monster.”
At that moment, Iellie had goosebumps on her back. No matter how much he hated him, he was still his own child. How can he say such a harsh word?
However, even while listening to the harsh words, the Heir Apparent just had an expressionless face.
Tsk. Clicking his tongue, the Duke turned his gaze.
She stood on the stairs and captured the current situation with a confused face. As though he killed all his emotions a long time ago, the boy looked down with an emotionless face.
‘Do you really feel sorry? Why?’
Iellie bit her lips. She was confused. Rather, shouldn’t it be the Duke who had to apologize for his mistake?
He lingered on his own safe territory, driving his only young son into battle with the beasts.
Seriously even the behavior that he casually called his son ‘monster.’ Then, the Duke asked coldly.
“What is that look in your eyes now?”
“You’re arrogant. You can’t deceive the appearance of a monster.
The Duke frowned his eyebrows to the extent that visibly showed that he was disgusted and raised his hand.
Slap! A sharp crackling sound shattered the air.
Badump! The boy’s body rolled over the floor like a rag doll. She opened her eyes wide.
“Well, what is this…!”
Iellie muttered without knowing, but the boy didn’t even groan.
Instead, he twisted on the floor, wriggled, and raised himself. He struck him so hard, a new stream of blood spilled from the boy’s mouth.
As he looked at his son’s blue eyes, which resembled his, the Duke said coldly.
“You dare show such an arrogant attitude when you couldn’t even defeat the demons properly.”
“I am sorry.”
In front of the sharp words towards him, the boy bowed his head at an angle and followed with words of apology.
