Predatory Marriage — Chapter 217. Locked up (2)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Regan
Lady Mirael hummed happily as she lifted the new gown she would wear. Standing before a mirror, currently only an expensive necklace and earrings adorned her naked body. She was proud of her voluptuous figure and struck several poses in the mirror, thinking of Cerdina. Though she had made some mistakes in her efforts to do her best, Cerdina had always affectionately comforted her.
“After all, the Queen Mother is on my side.”
It was Cerdina that had called Mirael to the palace. She had even met with her personally and ordered Mirael to give herself to His Majesty with all her heart. And her efforts had been rewarded. Only Lady Mirael had kept her place at Blain’s side, though he replaced his other consorts almost every day.
But as a result, she had become greedy.
Looking in the mirror, Lady Mirael admired her own s3xual charms, especially compared to the skinny body of Princess Leah. That woman looked as if she would blow over with the breeze. There was no way that body could handle pregnancy and childbirth. Morning sickness alone would make her collapse.
Mirael wanted to take the place of the Queen. But if she couldn’t, if she could only have the Crown Prince in her belly…her life would change completely.
But as she remembered how the princess had insulted her, Mirael frowned. Princess Leah hadn’t liked her from the first moment they met. She was always so rude when she watched Blain having s3x with Mirael, as if it were something disgusting. But Blain was always considerate of the princess, so Mirael had done nothing to correct that behavior.
She knew how to handle those bitches. After they had been properly chastised, they were tame and obedient.
Smiling, Lady Mirael slipped into her dress. Behind her, a man stealthily approached and grabbed her bottom, smiling mischievously at her surprise. At first, she was sulky, but smiled as soon as he did.
He was a knight that worked in the princess’s palace. Initially Lady Mirael had established the relationship just because she believed it was necessary, but she was actually taking advantage of the benefits.
“What are you going to do tonight?” she asked him, smiling.
“Oh, I want to spend time with you…” He shook his head regretfully. “But not tonight. We’re all on standby while the princess is confined.
“Confined?” She asked in surprise.
“Yes, she is being taken to a villa outside the palace. They’ll probably bring her back before the wedding. I’ll be going there today.”
The knight eyed her cautiously as he spoke. He seemed to be concerned that this might upset her, but her mind was on other things.
“In the villa, security will be weaker than in the palace, right?” she asked, after some thought.
“Hmm…I see.” Lady Mirael smiled meaningfully.
Leah knew Blain was mentally unstable. But she never thought he would do anything like this.
A little while after she had been imprisoned, Blain came to her palace.
She thought she could have a sensible conversation with him. She hoped that there would be some explanation that would resolve the strange situation. But those small hopes were cruelly crushed.
As soon as he arrived, Blain grabbed her wrist, making her stagger as he dragged her toward the door.
“Your Majesty! Your Majesty…!” She cried repeatedly, but Blain ignored her. Her eyes widened as he dragged her out of the palace. A carriage was waiting outside. – Posted only on Novel Utopia
“I have bought a villa, so you will stay in that place until the wedding,” he said as he hauled her toward the carriage. “I bought it in a hurry and no remodeling has been done, so it may have some shortcomings…”
“Your Majesty!” Finally, she was able to break loose and push him away. Her body stiffened as soon as their eyes made contact. His blue gaze was filled with madness.
“You love me, Leah.” He pressed her shoulders in his hands. “You have to do what I tell you.”
He was gasping. Leah looked up at him.
“Doesn’t His Majesty love me too?” She asked.
“Why do you always make me do things I don’t like? I don’t understand…”
Suddenly, a smile appeared on his expressionless face. It made Leah very uncomfortable.
