I Should Have Just Died - Chapter 77
“That’s why the queen sent a summons yesterday, and the Duke refused.”
Sasha said to Alyssa, who looked strangely happy.
Alyssa nodded her head. Seidrick forcibly cut the string that she could not break because she was afraid or regretful.
‘He’s still my husband…’
Alyssa bit her lips.
As her mind gradually returned, she realized that this was not something she would be pleased with. Before she went to the garden, she apparently had scoured Seidrick’s office and messed it up. Moreover, the card the queen was holding was for Alyssa’s mother…
Her face turned white.
Her feeble fear rose.
Maybe, very likely.
What if Seidrick learned that Alyssa was scouring his office and was angry and barred her from going out? What if it wasn’t meant to protect her but to punish her?
Alyssa’s raised head bowed down.
Her little heart began beating with fear as a person who had never been protected.
It was hell, then it was heaven, and it was hell again. Her mind shook endlessly, and even her head was all over the place.
Sasha also looked at Alyssa, who suddenly became pale, and Sasha became white too.
“…Did… did the Duke have any other words?”
“Ah! There was.”
“There was a message saying that if you have anything you need, please tell us anytime, and I hope that you will take care of your heart and restore your health.”
Alyssa’s body ran out of power. She thought she knew for some reason.
Seidrick covered everything he knew. She seemed to know that he was putting Alyssa under Cambridge’s protection and pretending not to know what she was trying to do.
Seidrick knows that the royal family is aiming for Cambridge.
It seems that her head is clearing now.
She had a hazy head when she heard the queen’s story. Alyssa bit her mouth and thought Seidrick Cambridge is not an idiot. He was a smart man, even if she put together the things she had heard through the rumors.
He must be careful and be careful again, as he will never be beaten by the royal family again.
This is Alyssa’s guess, but he may have planted a man in the royal family. It’s an arrogant royal family.
Besides, it was likely that the king would have put pressure on Seidrick as he pressured her.
Seidrick knows everything.
‘…Why are you kind to me, Seidrick.’
He is kind even in a strange corner, anytime he goes around avoiding herself.
He made her a wife who doesn’t even know her husband’s face.
It is the first time that the world felt warm to her. However, she still thought that way. The idea that she shouldn’t bother Cambridge anymore.
The idea that she shouldn’t let those good people carry her burden.
“What do you think? Do you think the Duke has crossed the line?”
Sasha asked very carefully. Alyssa is a princess, no matter how. It deserves to be displeasing enough for someone to impose sanctions on Alyssa’s actions.
“No. Rather I appreciate it. Thanks to Sasha, it’s better not to go than to go to the royal family and stand up like a sack of barley.”
“If so… then that’s fortunate.”
Sasha bowed her head.
Seeing Alyssa’s smiling face made her feel relieved.
“Yes. It’d probably be better.”
But she wasn’t just happy.
What did Seidrick give to steal her away? It is Cambridge, which the royal family has already hated. He must have paid some price to get Alyssa out of the queen’s grasp.
‘Somehow, because of me…’
Could he have given up the iron ore business?
Her mind got complicated. But Seidrick, who can answer the questions from Alyssa, will not meet her. As it always has been.
“I have to meet him…”
Alyssa jumped up.
She will ask and hear what the hell he offered. If he’s not, she’ll ask his secretary.
It was a long week.
It doesn’t seem like he has been to the castle as often as now. Instead of preventing the queen from doing evil to Alyssa, the king demanded a stake in the iron ore business and the shipbuilding business.
Where did they hear the introduction of the new concept of investor?
Indeed, people scattered all over the place would be the ears and mouths of the royal family.
