I Become The Wife of The Male Lead - Chapter 53
Chapter 53: The beginning of change (2) (unedited)
“I told you to drink slowly.” Sigren expressionlessly looked at Fiona who had her face laid down and her silver hair messed up on the table. Many things about her often made him wonder. From the first time he met her, Fiona often acted like she was his sister, but he never could see her like that, especially whenever something like this happened. Another thing, it was true that she was clever and a genius mage, but strangely she was also weak. Also, one thing particularly surprising, she also could understand the surrounding situation quickly.
Sigren got up from his seat, then he carefully carried Fiona. It seemed like she had fallen into a deep sleep, seeing that she did not wake up even if her posture changed. He then put Fiona down on the bed slowly. He wanted to untie her collar as she was looked suffocating with it, but decided it would be better to call her maid later.
“Sometimes, i think i want to open your head.” Sighed quietly.
Of course, the sleeping Fiona did not answer.
“Without asking anything from me, what is the reason that you’ve cared for me since the first time we’ve met.”
Sigren covered Fiona’s chest with a blanket.
“There is no love without a price….”
Even between friends, lovers, as well as parents and children, even though there was no form of it, there was clearly something that exchanged emotionally. But Fiona wasn’t like that. Deep down, even after he had been with Fiona for several years, he still felt he didn’t know her well. Fiona seemed to desire nothing particular. She seemed like if the situation she was in was comfortable, she was happy, but if it was not, it didn’t matter. She was like a dandelion spore floating in the air without taking root anywhere.
“I hope one day you can find something you want too.”
Because it was hard to imagine that a person who didn’t want anything would be happy. As humans felt happy when they got what they wanted.
After muttering like that, SIgren blew out the candle that was illuminating her room. “I hope you have the happiest dream, Fiona.”
His most precious girl.

The next day, Abel tapped in his crossed arms. Beside him, Celine and the young maid glanced at him. He had just come into Fiona’s room to check on the condition of his adopted daughter who didn’t wake up until lunchtime. Of course, he didn’t mean he wanted to nag that Fiona was oversleeping, or that she drank a lot of alcohol before going to sleep.
Abel looked at the two glasses of wine on the table.
“Two glasses of wine.”
If so, it meant that someone drank together. Abel turned his head, looking at Fiona’s headbed.
“For some reason, Sigren’s tie was on my adopted daughter’s bed.”
Plus, the maid gave her testimony that she saw Sigren left Fiona’s room late at night.
Celine sighed quietly.
Abel smiled wryly.
“Celine, it seems that taking care of children is harder than i thought.”
He picked up Sigren’s tie and waved it indifferently.
“I’ve never though that I would an inflexible person.”
For a moment, Abel looked at Fiona, who was still sleeping peacefully. He could guess the situation roughly. Fiona must have dragged Sigren in for a drink without a second thought, and Sigren would have followed in because he liked that he could be with her.
Abel sometimes thought, Fiona was really….
“Celine, when my adoptive daughter who is the most vigilant person in the world, wakes up, make her something to relieve her hangover.”
“Where are you going?”
“I don’t think she’s going to wake up, so we’ll have to go investigate another suspect.”
Abel solemnly declared.
“I’m going to catch SIgren.”
Upon hearing this, Celine sighed and almost blurted out ‘you have to call him Prince…’
A few days have passed since the banquet. If there was one thing that has changed, Sigren has officially entered the Imperial Palace. He was recognized as a prince, so it was only natural for him to be given one of the palaces in the Imperial Palace.
“What if he get bullied in the imperial palace?”
Abel looked sour because of my concern. He was about to quarrel with Sigren just before Sigren left.
“is he even a person who has a concern about being bullied?”
Of course, I was not in a position to worry about Sigren. Because something important was right in front of me.
Five Families Meeting.
That meeting was held regularly by the representative of the noble families that had contributed to the founding empire. The participating families are Heilon, Priscilla, Clovis, Ernest, and Erez. these five families were the reason why it was called the ‘Five Families Meeting.’
And now, I was on my way to attend that meeting with Abel.
“By the way, Duke Ernest will object to anything I say, so just ignore it.”
The Duke of Ernest was the family that produced the current empress. For this reason, it was the representative of the force that support the empress’ son, the crown prince. They were in a position that had no choice but to confront the Heilon, which was protecting the new prince, Sigren.
“Ignore the Erez family as well.”
The hell, didn’t he say, he would introduce those families, what was this telling me to ignore them.
“Priscilla and Clovis are neutral, right?”
“Yeah, it’s neutral. Both are just watching.”
I nodded quietly. Well, I knew to some extent.
The carriage stopped as soon as the driver’s shout.
“Well, in conclusion, it mean do what you wanna do.”
It was such Abel-like advice.
