I Become The Wife of The Male Lead - Chapter 48
Chapter 48: The beginning of the change (unedited)
After responding Abel, I looked ahead.
Sigren’s father, the Emperor, sat on his throne chair that place higher than the hall. Except for his blue eyes, he didn’t have much resemblance to Sigren. He looked more like an ordinary man than a dignified one. But Abel’s statement that he liked to show off seemed to be true. Like, at this moment, he was wearing clothes embroidered with gold thread and adorned with many jewels. The phrase ‘clothes make a man’ was really shown in him. He must have done that due to wanting to show people that he was the emperor.
To be honest, the current emperor was just an extra among the extras that didn’t even play a supporting role. I barely had anything set up for him in the novel that right now I didn’t even know anything, except he would die soon. Well, he was only created for Sigren’s development to become emperor later.
In conclusion, he was the character that I, also Sigren, have nothing to worry about. Even after thinking about some detail that I remembered, he was not a problem.
I saw Sigren walking slowly to where the emperor was seated. People slowly parted but without taking their eyes off him. He stepped on the red carpet that was placed not far from the throne chairs and stood tall.
Emperor slowly got up from his throne with a satisfied face.
“I believe everyone here has heard the good news.”
The crowd was so quiet that I couldn’t even hear a single breath.
“This Emperor glorious bloodline has made a great contribution in the north.”
Wow… Even from afar, I could see Sigren holding back a smirk. Growing up with him, became his friend since we were a child, it was very easy to notice a small change in his expression.
Abel also smirked next to me. “What a funny talk. He’s been ignored for the whole time, but now he’s part your glorious bloodline.”
I could not agree more with that.
The emperor slowly descended from the throne and placed his hand on Sigren’s shoulder with a very benevolent face.
“This emperor’s proud son, Sigren. Show everyone what you’ve accomplished here.”
“I will, Your Majesty.”
It must have been Sigren’s small resistance to not call the emperor father.
Sigren gave a signal to the servant next to him with his eyes.
The servant, as if he was been waiting, walked politely while holding something wrapped in a luxurious cloth.
After looking at the cloth for a moment, Sigren bowed his head and then spoke in a no-frills manner. “I would dedicate this to your majesty, the master of the empire.”
The servant then rolled up the cloth.
Then, a second after that, Sigren’s dull voice echoed in the hall. “This is the heart of the dragon I caught.”
Hearing those words, a small exclamation burst out.
The dragon’s heart was completely different from what people thought of. It was not like a human heart. It was more like a large mineral. The heart was black like obsidian at first glance. The difference was it was more conspicuous and radiated weird feelings that attracted people.
The emperor was greatly pleased seeing the heart.
“Oh oh! The heart of a dragon… no matter how strong a monster is, when in front of the great bloodline of this empire they’re nothing.”
Then he spoke to the people in the hall.
“You’ve all seen it. The greatness of the Empire and the imperial family!”
Since the beginning, the Emperor has been exceptionally emphasizing that Sigren was part of his bloodline. He clearly intended to inform the people that all of Sigren’s achievements were possible because Sigren was part of the ‘imperial family’ like him. Well, Abel said the emperor liked to show off. So it was natural that he gave the ‘glory’ to his bloodline.
The emperor opened his mouth solemnly. “So, Jim would like to give Jim’s son who has made a contribution to the history his original position.”
The surrounding became a little noisy after hearing those words. It was because the meaning of what the emperor said was clear.
“Today, in this place, I would make Sigren the official prince!”
As soon as the words finished, applause erupted.
I glanced around. These nobles were really good at this kind of social life. They seemed to give hearty congratulations. But it was obvious they were unable to openly make gestures against the will of the emperor, so they had to clap formally and fake their smile. It was all the same in any world, what the boss said was the law.
However, it seemed there were people who did not mask their expression even if they lived in this society, and even in this kind of atmosphere. The royal family. Those people sat at the top a little further away from the emperor’s seat, looking very dissatisfied. And the person with the most visible displeased expression was the crown prince. It was clear that the appearance of a new prince who might threaten the position was certainly not pleasing to them. Well, if this world went exactly like the original plot, he would play the role of an extra villain who bothered the main characters.
‘Sigren and Eunice would take care of it.’
With that in mind, I applauded hard sincerely.
The Sigren, who turned around his head for a moment, met my eyes.
I made a motion with my lips to him.
Then, I smiled at him.
In an instant, Sigren’s face turned a little red, then looked forward again.
He was probably embarrassed.
Ah, my child was so naive despite his appearance.
While I smiled happily, beside me, Abel murmured ‘you play well…’ sarcastically.
