I Found a Wife Whose Engagement was Broken Off in the Neighboring Country, But She's Too Cute, What Should I Do? - Chapter 2
His gaze turned to me; a startled look appeared on his face. As a man, I had always disregarded words that berated my appearance, but I could never tolerate the same to be done to women and children.
Furthermore, it was a high-ranking individual against someone of lower rank, who could never resist.
It seems I was not the only person who felt upset about that fact.
In the spirit of chivalry, several attendees rose from their seats.
The Crown Prince, Arios, must have realized that he had misspoken. He turned his face away from the attendees, his mouth in a pout.
And still, he never uttered an apology.
Is he a child?
As a man of similar age, I feel ashamed.
“…Huh? Why…You are…”
Suddenly, I heard an unfamiliar voice.
Hmm? I turned to face where the sound came.
Apparently, the inside of the white veil spoke.
Perhaps she turned her head this way. The hem of the veil swung.
I tilted my head in confusion as she spoke of unknown words. I don’t understand. What language is it?
Prince Arios cleared his throat and once again looked around the cathedral.
He held Miele in one arm as a bright smile flashed on his face.
No, we have yet to receive a correction and an apology.
“The engagement is annulled!”
“You f̲u̲c̲k̲i̲n̲g̲ moron!”
An Infuriated voice was heard, and like lightning strikes, it reverberated throughout the room.
Whoa! That startled me!
It appears that I was not the only one.
One of the knights who stood up and protested even gripped the hilt of his ceremonial sword.
Prince Arios’ shoulders shook, and with a shriek, Miele hugged him.
“Lord Barrymore, please forgive my son’s rudeness.”
With his white beard trembling, he lowered his head to the man who was sitting on the chair with his senior retainers.
Lord Barrymore must be related to Lady Citroën.
I can only witness his side profile from my seat, but he seems to be around my father’s age.
He was thin-fleshed and had receding hair, but he was a middle-aged man with a fearless face.
Somehow, he appears to be indifferent.
Normally, if one’s daughter’s engagement was broken in front of them, they would either get angry or grab King Norris asking, “What’s going on?”
Lord Barrymore was silent, staring straight ahead.
I wondered if he was unsympathetic.
But when I saw his jaw tense and his arms trembling finely, I knew that he was simply holding on to his anger, and I felt indescribable.
His daughter, Lady Citroën, was very similar to her father, Lord Barrymore.
A large contrast to the Luminas Royal Family, who were impulsive.
“An apology is unnecessary, King Norris.”
Silence fell for a few minutes, during the time, King Norris kept bowing his head.
Unexpectedly, Lord Barrymore rose to his feet.
“I shall take this foolish girl back home. Citroën”
Lord Barrymore stretched out his arm.
As I expected, I could see his muscles even through his clothes. I can tell that he lives a moderate life and works out tirelessly, which makes him much more likable than that idiot of a crown prince.
“Let’s go back to Tania Kingdom.”
Ah, this gentleman. Is he a member of the royal family of Tania, one of the five kingdoms?
One-third of the country seems to be mountainous, but it is a country rich in mining resources.
Many of them are mountain herders, and are able-bodied and have strong cardiovascular and pulmonary functions.
Seeing Sir Barrymore’s physique, I was convinced.
“Lord Barrymore, Hei! Please forgive me!”
King Norris and his senior retainer tried to held back Lord Barrymore, who was on his way into a passage covered with a red carpet.
I looked down the aisle.
The white cocoon moved.
Apparently, she was about to go to Lord Barrymore herself.
As soon as I saw the white cocoon leave Prince Arios.
I don’t like it.
That Prince Arios and that woman named Miele laughed with glee.
No, can you not see the situation?
Due to you people, many are apologizing, upset, plotting, and laughing.
“With all due respect, if I may, King Norris, Sir Barrymore.”
It was his mother who raised her voice.
Astonished, I glanced to the side and saw her holding out her hand towards me.
Oh, an escort, right, right.
I placed my hand under hers, and she stood up in an elegant manner.
She slightly bended her knees in greeting.
“This is…Queen Tedros. What a surprise!”
King Norris greeted in return as sweat poured down from his forehead like waterfall.
“I haven’t seen Sir Barrymore since last year’s ……, yes, the Caravan Confederacy’s soirée.”
Hiding her mouth behind her slightly opened fan, mother spoke. Lord Barrymore took a salute, pressing his right fist against his left chest, and then he opened his mouth gravely.
“It is a great honor for someone like me to speak to you.”
As you can see, this is how it’s usually done.
You are speaking to a royal after all.
People are really absurd.
I stared at Crown Prince Arios and Miele, but the two were simply gazing at each other as they laugh joyfully.
When I moved my gaze to the white cocoon who stopped moving, looking at Sir Barrymore and Mother alternately.
“By the way, King Noyes, I hope you don’t mind if I call off this engagement.”
I had made it clear, mother…
“No, no, no, no!”
King Norris panicked, but Sir Barrymore cleared his throat loudly.
“I will return to the Kingdom of Tania with the foolish woman.”
Lord Barrymore’s voice and expression are stubborn.
As expected, whispers leaked out from the seats.
The atmosphere was not good.
“I am looking for a wife for my son. His Majesty has entrusted me with this matter. What do you say, Lord Barrymore?”
The disturbing opinions stopped with a snap when my mother spoke up.
I, myself, am at a loss for words in another sense.
My wife, huh?
I apologize for not being able to update recently, I had been busy with school and exams.
Chapter two is here, how was it? I get the feeling Fl is reincarnated from japan, she seems to know mc from that life, or someone who’s alike mc…I’m reading as I translate and doesn’t know anything, so what do you think?
