Reincarnated Villainess Does Not Want Revenge - Chapter 35
Translated by: ShinigamiTori
The Door to Revenge is Open
The audience chamber, the most spacious area in the central part of the palace, is situated at the end of a long corridor.
Since it is mainly used for guests, national affairs meetings, and parties and ceremonies hosted by the royal palace, the building is the most elaborate structure in the royal palace.
The grandeur of the doors represents the long history of the royal family, while the lavish and radiant decorations serve as a symbol of the royal family’s prosperity.
The sight of this door brings back memories of Rosemary’s condemnation.
Prince Gray, who was the Crown Prince at the time, presided over Rosemary’s trial in front of the public.
“Our engagement is hereby terminated.”
“Don’t think that the attempted murder of Tia will ever be forgiven.”
No matter how much Rosemary shouted that it was a misunderstanding and an innocent accusation, nobody paid any attention.
All those gathered in the audience chamber were Rosemary’s enemies.
Trapped and ensnared, Rosemary bowed her head, holding back her tears.
Still, she refused to admit to a crime she didn’t commit.
As Alberto gently placed his hand on my shoulder and spoke words of concern, it brought me back to consciousness.
With the door in front of me, Rosemary’s past seems to have drifted into my mind, but thanks to Alberto, I was able to regain my focus.
And I understood why he had called out to me and expressed his concern.
He must have known where Rosemary had been sentenced.
“It’s all right. Let’s go.”
I smiled slightly to reassure him, and Alberto smiled back, with small wrinkles forming on the corners of his eyes.
In his eyes, there was a gaze that reflected not the burning desire for revenge from before, but a strong determination.
Once again, I looked at the door.
While rushing to the audience chamber, I heard the full details about the rebellion from Alberto.
The anti-royalist faction had long voiced their desire to denounce the injustice and corrupt politics of the current king, Gray.
It goes without saying that Reynaldo stood at the center of it all.
Without revealing his identity, he concealed himself and continued to gain supporters who opposed the King.
In secret, he gathered evidence of King Gray’s corrupt rule and obtained evidence of the flow of money such as bribes and favors orchestrated by the King and his Chancellor.
Eventually, he discreetly assembled individuals among the nobles in various parts of the country who were willing to participate in the rebellion.
The signatures surpassed more than half of the names listed in the nobles’ directory.
With all the pieces in place, Reynaldo marched towards the royal palace today, under the banner of righteousness and a just cause.
Regarding Prince Risel, he was not considered equally guilty as King Gray. The plan was to focus on condemning the King who was at the core of the corrupt rule, and after King Gray stepped down, a secret plan was devised to install Prince Risel as the king without his knowledge.
Prince Risel listened to this in silence.
Despite the fact that he himself could easily end up being sentenced, Prince Risel remained remarkably calm.
Furthermore, after the rebellion was over, there was a plan to have Prince Risel come forward as the one who raised his voice to condemn the current King.
After hearing the proposal, Prince Risel let out a voice of denial, but it seemed that Alberto had anticipated this reaction. He nodded at him and continued speaking.
“That’s why I had to detain you for a while. It was necessary to keep you away from the palace, even if only temporarily,”
“So, you put me to sleep.”
Surprised by Prince Rsel’s words, I looked at Alberto. He remains silent without denying it. In other words, it must be true that he had put Prince Risel to sleep.
“I am prepared for the punishment.”
“Don’t you think I would oppose you overthrowing my father and making me king?”
“I don’t think you would oppose it. If it’s you…”
Despite being a conspirator in the plan, Alberto’s gaze toward Prince Risel was calm, like that of a teacher looking at his student. And at his words, Risel also became silent.
Based solely on what I heard and my own speculation.
Considering the chaos that could ensue if Prince Risel were to refuse to inherit the throne as stated.
The future of the country with a prolonged period of political instability due to the vacancy, along with the impact on the people and the country.
Prince Risel would agree to be king regardless of his own will.
It is apparent that this is also one of Reynaldo’s plans.
“This rebellion is being conducted in utmost secrecy, involving insiders as well. The private armies of the anti-royalist faction have effectively detained the King’s escort knights. All the guard knights stationed within the palace are supporters of the rebellion. Therefore, while there may be a commotion outside to create disturbances, it is highly probable that the audience chamber has been taken control of in the meantime.”
With Alberto as the Knight Commander, it would be easy to make changes such as determining the placement of knights.
And it was precisely on the day I headed towards the palace that the operation was carried out.
If I had found out even one day later, the whole plan would have already been completed.
I find myself reminiscing about the words Reynaldo uttered before he departed from the Rose territory.
“Don’t ever disappear from me again.”
The depth of Reynaldo’s determination to proceed with this plan weighed heavily on Marie’s emotions.
Reynaldo is afraid that I will distance myself from him upon learning about this rebellion.
No sound could be heard from inside the audience chamber due to the thick doors.
Still, the sense of looming tension from inside was growing stronger, as if it were seeping through the walls.
“I will open it.”
Alberto directed his words to me and Prince Risel.
We both nodded silently.
Alberto quietly opens the heavy door.
The gleaming light from the chandelier illuminated the room, prompting me to squint as I gazed straight ahead.
