I Become The Wife of The Male Lead - Chapter 34
Chapter 34: Heilon (2) (Unedited)
A letter came from Abel that week.
[you haven’t finished yet?]
I crumpled up the letter, feeling annoyed. He must have thought that it was easy to destroy a noble family. But, it was not, at least for me.
The Green family’s business was strong. It seemed that the Count and Caindel had more business talent than I expected. Therefore, if it were Caindel who took over the family, the business would run without any major problems. However, because of this, I had to take a couple more steps to make Jen become the temporary head of the family and help him to kick Caindel out. The reason I chose him was, to be honest, although he had good magical talents, he did not have a keen eye for business. So, even if I were to leave it alone, the family would collapse in a few years.
‘However, if you want to ruin something, you have to destroy it quickly.’
I grinned as I looked into the document related to the family registered. After the statement I was no longer part of Green family had the family seal stamped, then the risk of using this dirt for them was completely eliminated.
“Alright, let’s go sightseeing after checking out this Heilon mansion.”
With a deep sigh, I looked at the paper envelope on my table. It was an anonymous letter that I made, including a document accusing the Green family of illegal business, and kindly put all the evidence as well. It would be sent to the Imperial Palace’s finance department. If this was confirmed, the green family’s property would be confiscated. The Green family’s fortune was substantial, so wouldn’t they think it was a good opportunity to fill the nation’s treasury?
Two days after sending the envelope, I went to Jen after completing the preparations.
“Congratulations on becoming the head of state.”
“It’s still temporary.”
Let’s threw the candy first.
“Who else would be the head of the family if it was not you brother?”
“Well.. that’s true.”
I wanted to make Jen’s mood float to the top of the top if possible. Then, when he suddenly hit the floor, it would hurt so bad. It would be the worst thing that ever happened.
I kept a gentle smile on the outside, smiling to the fullest. It was a skill that had been learned from dealing with Abel in recent years. The technical name was so-called ‘defying the boss’. I smiled and handed over the document I was holding.
“It’s what I asked before.”
Jen looked through the document and slammed the family’s seal.
I found it a bit strange he stamped the documents recklessly. He was not supposed to do it that fast. Was it even possible to use the seal of the family that easily?
Just a feeling a bit strange, nonetheless I did not care. Anyway, with this, I was officially expelled from the Green family. It was real freedom.
Jen beckoned roughly and said, “Now, get out of here. I have a lot of work to do.”
Of course, there were no documents piled up on the office desk in front of Zen who said so. It was different from Abel, who always had a tower of papers on his desk.
“You really do look like that.”
It was a sarcastic remark, so I pretended to not understand.
I carefully put the stamped document into the envelope. Now, all the business was over.
“I have the last thing to tell you.”
Jen glanced up at me.
“What is it?”
I put my hand on the office desk and leaned slightly. And whispered as if telling a very important secret.
“There is no answer to gambling addiction. Especially when you are in debt.”
“Hey, how do you know that?”
Jen opened his eyes round, shocked.
It was a natural reaction because he thoroughly hid the fact that he was gambling.
Would I let him know that he asked?
I approached the door with a light step as if I was dancing. Then looked at Jen’s puzzled face, I grinned, and wave my hand between the doors.
As I walked down the hallway humming, I heard a shrill voice behind me.
“Why are you still here?”
I turned around and saw the Countess, lavishly adorned, stood not far away. The hem of her puffy dress that touched the floor matched the latest trend. May, the maid following her, bowed her head as my eyes met her. Her shoulders were trembling. She must have been quite shocked the last time she was slapped in the cheek.
The Countess’ red lips drew thick lines and laughed.
“A shameless thing. Don’t think about sucking out and eating your older brother’ backbone . Get out of here.”
“I’ll do it without you urging me, Ma’am.” I replied softly. Then I approached the countess. Looking at her face now, there was one thing I wanted to do before I left.
“I just remembered the last thing I have to do before that.”
At my words, the Countess raised one eyebrow in puzzled.
Seeing that expression, I smiled softly. As the distance from me gradually narrowed, she took a step back.
“Don’t come near me. It is very unpleasant.”
“Don’t worry. It’ll be over soon.”
It didn’t really take long.
