My Wish is Two Separate Beds - Chapter 8
In that respect, Julia and Endimion, who had married at the early age of 7 and yet had no children at 19, were an unusual case.
“Well, You two are still young, so it’s too early to worry. You’re going to have your coming-of-age ceremony now, so I’m telling you to be vigilant.”
“Yes…… Thank you, mother.”
She wasn’t condemning her to give birth to a successor, but giving advice because she thought of her daughter-in-law, who had nowhere to go, didn’t have any greed or ambitions. Julia bowed her head with heartfelt gratitude.
Miladi pulled up her chair to sit and whispered, as though she understood everything.
“If you don’t get pregnant even after doing it continuously. Consider whether Endimion is actually an eunuch.”
No, where did she learn such shameless words!
Miladi was the one talking, but Julia screamed and closed her mouth with her hands. Miladi, who had deliberately teased Julia for her cute reactions, burst into laughter while playfully hitting Julia.
“Ahue, it was a joke. His eyes are burning! I’m on the verge of dying from getting goosebumps when I see him like that.”
Julia tilted her head while touching her hot cheeks.
Endimion’s eyes were famous for being cold as a glacier. They were a little better to Julia after being together for a long time, but they were blunt to even his family, Miladi and Iris. That Mion’s eyes to be burning. Was she being ironic?
“Hmm, anyway, it is if you still don’t get a child. Think about bringing in a concubine.”
It seems like I keep absentmindedly repeating everything she says today. But they were really absurd words, so I couldn’t help it. Concubine? It was the most shocking word I’ve heard today.
Miladi shook her hands and quickly added as though trying to prevent any misunderstandings,
“I was also a concubine. Don’t take it personally, it is for producing an heir. Of course, it’s best to have the heir yourself, but if it doesn’t happen, it can’t be helped. Not all concubines are jealous of the queen, so you just have to choose well. A lady, like me, who isn’t greedy. I have never been jealous of the former queen.”
Well, what if the opposite happens? Julia vaguely raised the corners of her mouth, and smiled.
Miladi and the former queen had a friendly relationship. It was entirely thanks to Miladi, who was not greedy for power. Nevertheless, I was told that the former queen still harbored a heavy heart. Although the cool and free-spirited Miladi didn’t seem to know yet.
“Do you understand what I am saying?”
Still, Julia nodded her head. A baby and concubines, it was a little embarrassing but it was advice that would build her future.
She planned on seriously thinking about the heir issues before her coming-of-age ceremony. Thinking this Julia had her final conversation with Miladi.
“But, you two still seem to be like newlyweds. Doesn’t Endimion sleep with you every night no matter how late his duty’s end? Both of you have great stamina.”
“Hohoho! It’s a joke, a joke.”
“Ha, my gosh mother.”
Julia shook her head as she walked back with the delicious snacks Miladi had given to her. Seeing my maid, who carried the basket in my stead, asking me if I wanted to get some air before heading back, my face must be really red.
“Yes, it would be better to go back through the refreshing garden.”
“Yes, my queen.”
The Grand Duongbi Palace was made to Miladi’s taste and had many open gardens. Julia stepped over to the side with plenty of shade and a large fountain.
Julia contemplated this strange word.
She received sex education, read romance novels, and met and interacted with nobles at social parties, so she wasn’t ignorant of sex. But she had never thought of actually applying it to her situation. Besides, Endimion is a ‘husband’, and I have never seen him as a ‘man’!
But after hearing her mother-in-law telling her straightforwardly about pregnancy, she was quite worried.
‘What do I do? One can’t sleep with someone they don’t like, right?’
It seems she can’t have a child, she can’t think of having such a relationship with Endimion. He is like a friend, family, a brother, and sometimes even like a biological brother.
