The Reason You Should Marry Your Ex-Husband - Chapter 1
The Reason You Should Marry Your Ex-Husband <The End of Life>
The teacup clicked in the quiet space.
The mistake I’ve never done that in my life.
It was a rebuttal the I was so nervous.
I rolled my lips inwards and bit them.
No matter what method we use, it was unlikely that we would be able to resolve this moment of tension at this moment.
The icy gaze of the Aachentrus passed by me.
“….. do you have any idea what she’s talking about?”
It was quite a long time after my words. Aachentrus was looking at me with a clear look that he had nothing else to say. Once, I nodded.
“Yes, Lord Cloveus. I’m perfectly normal and I know exactly what I’m talking about.”
I’m sure it was rude but on the other hand…..
“That guy really goes around outside.”
Should I say that I feel relieved by familiarity? I said again calmly.
“I must marry Gong.”
For the Aacentrus, it was normal for my proposal to be embarrassed now. Sure enough, Aschentrus frowned. Then I rubbed my eyes with my palm as if I was tired. It was like that before, but now it’s a little stronger. I don’t know why, but I didn’t think I was sleeping properly. A gruesome look and a look of intense fatigue. I don’t remember smoking, but now he was smelling like a cigar mixed with wood.
“…. consider it again, Your Royal Highness. I am a married man and have children. If you need any help, don’t hesitate to tell me”
A married man…. you faithful man. You still introduce yourself like that. I wonder if it is necessary to keep a political marriage without love so passionately.
“…. It’s been a while since the Duchess of Elia failed to wake up. Under Imperial law, vegetarians are not considered living, so the ball is free. I am not bound by the sadness of marriage.”
Elia Cloveus, I mean. He was killed in a carriage accident… No to be exact, he became a vegetable and the spirit escaped and entered the other body. She couldn’t have woken up because I was here, so she died. It’s right to watch. What does this mean? I also wanted to question God. I could see the cold enemy of Aachentrus, who could not know how I felt, shuddered with anger.
“That’s all I have to say and offer. I’ll pretend I didn’t hear what she told me.”
As if there was no more conversation to me, Aachentrusrose up. Era, I don’t know, so I closed my eyes and said again before Aachentrus was completely away.
“But I won’t give up the ball.”
I can imagine the look on the face of Ahentrus looking at me.
When he gets angry, he’ll stand looking at me with a suppressing look, as always. However, whatever he felt it had nothing to do with me. I was that desperate. Aachentrus is the Duke Cloveus. It meant that it was a big word that was once again put on the wedding market after losing his wife. It was obvious that if it wasn’t me, someone else would take the position. No matter how much Aachentrus keeps his chastity, just like new caffeine in the temple. I knew best that the human mind was not eternal. The mind can change at any time. Just like I did. I heard the sound of Aachentrus leaving the room without a reply. It doesn’t matter if it’s an obsession. Besides, the owner of this body has to stop me…..
“Are you sure you’re alright right?”
[Of course Ella. I’ll do anything to get you out of the imperial family, even selling souls!]
The ghost of Elish was sitting in the seat where Aachentrus was, smiling with a sea-sounding smile. The 15-year-old girl, who raised her head was stubborn. I don’t at the hell is in there. However, for me, there was no reason to reject Eilish’s offer.
“Phew… life, you said you couldn’t even guess an inch ahead.”
This wonderful story began in summer.
*** Summer of 376, Tombridge Empire – I have really thought I was dead. It was a situation that had no choice but to just do so. A carriage that was rushing toward the baby, who had just begun walking on two feet. Compared to a small baby, a very large house lifted its feet and gave off a long cry. The square was filled with screams and the horseman who missed the reins and my eyes who missed the child’s hand met. I couldn’t hear a hoot from the horseman. I pushed the child reflexively and crouched down. The sound of the baby crying….
I think I’ve heard the voice of Aachentrus calling my name, however, not everything was clear. For the distant pain of the excited horses’ hooves trampling on my body came to me. The carriage turned quickly to see if the horseman succeeded in holding the reins. Inhale and exhale was pain.
I could hear the baby crying and the shoes of people running towards me came into sight. And the red blood that apparently flowed from my body was wetting the stone floor of the square. Still, I thought it was a pretty good last. I have kept the one love left in my life, Julia, my love. I wish I could tell you that I loved you a lot. However, God seemed unlikely to give me such an opportunity. The baby’s maple-like palm was reflected in the flashing vision. It was only my comfort that the baby was fine without any injury. I thought that was the end. However, the pain that weighed on me was overflowing as reality.
Was it a dream? The pain of burning up my whole body while blinking my eyes came to me. Judging from the pain, the accident was real and perhaps I’m alive without dying. A great deal of pain would be the aftereffects of a wagon accident. Just being alive and not dead was something to be thankful for, so I thanked heaven instead of cursing.
“God, thank you…”
His voice cracked roughly, perhaps because he hadn’t spoken for a long time.
“Is Julia all right?”
The first person I thought of as soon as I opened my eyes was my daughter Julia. I didn’t know how much tie wad passed but the last think I saw was Julia, who managed to avoid the accident. I wanted to see the child right away. However, given the dark sky, it seemed to be too late or too early to see the child. No matter how impatient I was, I didn’t want to wake the child who was going to sleep. Julia would be fine if my memory hadn’t gone wrong. My baby who saved my whole body didn’t have a scratch. He struggled to get up his stiff body. I managed to pull myself out of a thick blanket that seemed to weigh on me.
“…. Has it been a long time?”
Overall, he had lost a lot of weight. It was not strange to say that only bones were left. It was hard to step down and my legs trembled as if there were no muscles at all. Taking one step was hard as taking a hundred steps.
“It was a big accident, so I deserved to lie down for a long time. I think I’ve been lying down for years to break up like this….”
He walked like a baby who didn’t even know how to walk. Seeing that Aachentrus kept me alive even though I hadn’t been able to get up in bed for years, he must have been loyal to me as he had always been. He’s never broken the vows we made on the day of our wedding. I lay under the protection of Aachentrus as long as I lived. It didn’t matter. When I was in a carriage accident, I was able to tell my baby that I love her as I wished. Even in the shattering pain of my whole body, I was worried that the child would know my death. Julia is still young, so she will forget about the accident soon but this secret will never last. Julia was sure to find out about my death in some way. Of course, it was me who missed Julia’s hand. But wouldn’t it matter to the guilt that a baby might have? I hoped Julia would always grow up bright. As much as I didn’t want to remain as a shadow to Julia, It was fortunate that I woke up. Julia would have grown up as much as the time I was lying down. The longing for the child grew more intense. I was going to see the child as soon as dawn broke. He raised his trembling arm to fill the teacup. This neat drink seemed to wear off this thirst, which seemed to burn your throat. It was too much to lift the cup, so I raised the cup with both hands and drank the tea.
Still, it’s much better after drinking something. We split up slowly and drank tea. Until the teapot of tea becomes lighter. It was drawing. When it was dark, I began to see the scenery in the room that I had never seen before. In the meantime, the decorating style of the Duke of Cloveus seemed to have changed a lot. The furniture and decorations. I carefully selected and arranged were different. In addition, the silk wallpaper, which was the most devoted, has changed. The Duchess of Cloves had a particularly good eye. He must have been a great help to me too.
“Congratulations on being alive, Elia.”
“Ailish! I can’t believe you woke up…. I can’t believe you. My daughter, Ailish…. I really thought you’d never wake up!”
He sat idly by the situation. It seemed to take longer to accept this situation. Ailish? Ailish was the name of the youngest princess born to the Tombridge family. Because no one could have the name of the imperial family, the name is forbidden when the imperial baby is born. The only thing that could write the name was Elish Tombridge. Besides, I was used to the faces of those kids who held me up and vented their feelings. But why am I called Eilish? Ailish Tombridge. She fell into a coma when she was 15 years old due to chronic disease and I remember not waking up until five years later so I’m Ailish? Oh. My. God. I was the moment when an unexpected fantasy intervened in Elia’s boring life, which had been normal. The summer of 376 under the Empire of Tombridge – It has only been a week since I had a wagon accident. I became the Ailish Tombride queen.
