The Reason for Marriage - Chapter 66.1 (Epilogue)
“Your Majesty, it’s so unlike you.”
Iveca frowned and shook her head. Daniel sighed when he guessed Iveca’s attitude toward the issue from the fact that she called him “Your Highness, not his real name. He gently stroked her hand and replied in a slightly unsure voice.
“But… I can’t stand Rosalie talking to Iveca like that.”
“That was a long time ago.”
“I don’t know why the Bureau of Investigation only reported it to me just now.”
The Bureau of Investigation seemed to be aware that Rosalie had verbally abused Iveca in the gymnasium on the day the draft of the Great Constitution was announced. Obviously, she thought there was no witness of her attitude.
However, it won’t be surprising that the Bureau of Investigation knew about the conversation because they were so adamant of Iveca’s safety since a long time ago, but Iveca didn’t know they would make a detailed report of it and send it to Daniel. Iveca thought it was a little funny because they seemed to forget that they were once very wary of each other before becoming each other’s confidante.
“I’m not asking you to scold her,” Iveca said. “At first, I was really annoyed in many ways, but I just endured it because she’s related to you… ”
Daniel smiled softly but spoke in a rather cool tone.
“Let’s get her out of the palace…”
“The fact that there is no justification for that decision, and that she’s Your Majesty’s sister-in-law is an unchanging fact. We were just arguing with different opinions. Everyone is different, and it’s only natural that everyone has different opinions.” Iveca said firmly. “Why do you want to expel someone who has the right to live in the palace just because she has a different thought?”
“…That’s right, but… ah… Damn it.”
Daniel frowned as he chose his words, as if he was upset. It was because he was too disgraceful to leave it is, as he recalled the words of Rosalie that he read in the report.
Iveca didn’t forget those words either. But the words have now done her no harm. The Bureau of Investigation, which said only the most powerful people in Amethan were gathered there, was protecting her, and Daniel was also by her side constantly. Threats didn’t affect her, nor did she think that her position as Queen was dangerous.
“This palace is your space, and it suits you more than anyone else, and if you meet Rosalie who talks like that… How annoying must it be…” Daniel carefully laid his hand on her stomach. “It is a bad time for a little stress…”
“I won’t get stressed, even if I run into her.”
Iveca smiled softly and leaned lazily against him. It has already been a few weeks since the medical department told her congratulations on her pregnancy. Iveca had no morning sickness and was not in a particular condition, but she quit working at the Judicial Bureau Office due to everyone’s dissuasion, so she was only checking on important matters at the Royal Palace.
“Daniel, you worry too much…”
“I am so anxious.” Daniel whispered as he kissed her eyes and cheeks. “I didn’t think she was greedy for the position of Queen. I’m afraid that you’ll think that this palace doesn’t suit you. I want to get rid of all the people who talk like that who get in the way of your happiness….”
“Do you want to go down in history as a tyrant?” Iveca grinned and swept Daniel’s cheek. “Then I’m in trouble. I don’t want to be recorded as a lawyer Queen with a tyrant as her husband. It’s so pathetic, please stop at this point.”
“…Iveca, aren’t you angry? No, no, you can’t. You shouldn’t be angry right now.”
Unexpectedly, looking at Daniel who was gibberish, Iveca replied, blinking her eyes.
“I was angry then. But I’m really not now. Because the Royal Palace is a happy place for me. I didn’t have to be born into a noble family, get a high education, and go through the steps of being Crown Princess.” Iveca whispered, soothing her husband, as she dug further into his arms.
“It’s true. Rosalie… it will probably be difficult for her soon.”
“What are you talking about?”
“When you feel lonely and alone, you can’t last long. It’s true. Trust me.”
Iveca confidently said to Daniel, who carefully stroked her still flat stomach. “I’m an experienced person.”
