I Become The Wife of The Male Lead - Chapter 33
Chapter 33: Heilon (Unedited)
There was a reason why I went round and round like this to remove myself from this family register. I really wanted to get out of the Green family before the drug business went public and implicated me. However, in order to remove me from the family register, I had to have permission from the head of the family or the temporary head of the family. The current head of the family, Count Green, was bedridden. So, inevitably, in order to sort out the family register problem, either Caindel or Jen, one of them had to become the temporary head of the household and grant the permission.
At the unexpected request, Jen made a puzzled expression. The request I made was supposed to be harmful to me, so he must think that the unbeneficial request was strange.
“Why do you want that?”
From here on, a little more in-depth acting skills were required.
“Actually, I… I originally come home for this.”
I tried to shed tears, but it didn’t work. So I decided to be satisfied with a sad smile on my face. If Sigren and Abel were to see this, they would have laughed at it.
“Everyone misunderstood that I am here to get wealth, but it’s actually not at all. I just came here to see the faces of my family.”
Then I took a deep breath.
“To be honest, I’m tired of being pointed at as an illegitimate child and constantly being misunderstood by family. Besides… I’m… I’m always causing trouble to this family just being in here, isn’t it? I cherished my family in my own way, but I felt sad constantly in this position.”
It was probably a request Jen secretly welcomed inside. When someone was expelled from the family registered, the inheritance was automatically relinquished.
I then spoke like a girl who dreamed in vain.
“Moreover, since this is the first time I came back to my home town in a while, I really want to go out and do a lot of things. But I can’t be the illegitimate child of this family for the rest of my life.”
Hearing my words, Jen said with a sad face. “I understand, Fiona. You must have a really hard time. When I become the head of the family, I would definitely set you free.”
What utter bullshit. He, too, had no objections to sending me to the battlefield.
“Now, tell me the names of the users who took the drugs in eldest brothers’ room.”
At Jen’s urging, I pretended to be hesitant and gave the names of the maids that I had bought in advance for testimony.
After listening, Jen nodded and looked as if he had solved a big problem.
“Okay. Thank you, Fiona. With this testimony, I would be able to inherit the family.”
I smiled satisfied and whispered sweetly.
“Congratulation in advance, brother.”
Everything was going as planned. The maids discovered the drug accidentally? Well, it was a lie. To be exact, I had bribed some of the servants and had them rummage through Caindel’s room. Their mouth had already been thoroughly locked. The maids would testify to Jen that they ‘accidentally’ discovered the drug while cleaning Caindel’s room and ‘accidentally’ were caught by Lady Fiona.
And also, the only information that Jen knew was that Caindel had touched the drug, he did not know that Count Green and Caindel had accumulated wealth by directly engaging in the drug business. But of course, I had no intention of telling Jen about this. I was going to save this card for the last. Anyway, I’ve decided to stir this family, so I had to do it properly.
I’m the type of person who, once I’ve decided to do something, I would do it till the end of it.
So, now that I’ve ignited Jen, all I have to do was wait for it to burn.
For Caindel, I didn’t need to do anything. He had always hated me anyway, and speaking directly like Jen would only cause a problem for me. Furthermore, with a fiery personality that Caindel had and a strong sense of inferiority towards Jen, that third older brother was enough. Just as Jen moved in full-fledged, Caindel’s animosity was also intensified.
“It’s on your side who doesn’t deserve it!”
“No, it’s not, it’s you, older brother. You’re not talented enough!.”
Since then, the Green’s brothers have started fighting the inheritance day by day. It wasn’t too bad in the beginning, but as the days went on, the fight became more intense. Recently, in addition to raising the voice, the sound of breaking objects has been frequently heard. The Countess, who had tried to stop the fight a few times in the beginning, seemed tired of it, and then stopped interfering. She was not even in the mansion at all. It seemed she spent her time with her young lover.
Nice, now I didn’t have to do anything directly. They were being eaten up by their own greed.
The people of the Green family were so greedy that they could not tolerate even a loss of a single grain, and always regarded others’ faults were large, and their faults were small. They were so selfish that they even send a powerless thirteen-year-old girl to the battlefield five years ago.
‘If there were even one wise man in the family, my plan would have failed.’
With that in mind, more time has passed.
No matter what, Jen was more intelligent than Caindel. While Caindel ran wild with his emotions, Jen bribed the house’s employees. He even inflated Caindel’s fault even further, and let some rumors flow. The Countess stood by the brothers’ fight, happy that she could maintain her current life.
Rumors spread like snowballs—well, I also helped it with my hand a little bit—which slowly made the lateral branch of this family question Caindel’s qualifications. And of course, Jen did not disappoint me. He took his debt further and bought those collateral relatives. He seemed to think he would be able to pay all of his debt at once after he inherited the family.
After some time, the victor of the long brother fight was decided. Caindel was expelled from the family. I was also sincerely happy to hear the news. I was getting tired of waiting for the conclusion of the fight between the two.
Finally, it was time for me to take out the last block and completely collapse the tower.
