Chapter 19

“Your Highness Julius, I think it’s okay to f*ck them.”

TL: It realy translate as F*ck (ハ メる)

Upon arriving at my seat in the salon, I was greeted by His Majesty and Her Majesty, His Highness Auglia and His Highness Julius, myself, Lord Balk. Behind us, Melissa, Gwenna, and Millie, the maids, were standing by to prepare tea and serve sweets.

“Excuse me, but I’m not sure I follow. What does ‘F*ck’ stand for?”

I carefully considered my words as I responded to His Majesty, thoughts racing through my mind. I’ve recently come to realize the power of a subtle smile in situations like these.

I felt like a villain in a story, but one whose life is being threatened. Despite having many guards at my disposal, the reports and intelligence from the spies indicate that there are those who are intent on taking my life, so I’ll do whatever it takes to protect myself.

So here I am, having studied countless books and immersed myself in knowledge, using what I learned in my homeland to protect myself from the very same homeland. It’s a fascinating tale.

However, I’m grateful to have married into this country. It’s just so comfortable here. Perhaps it’s because I came with the expectation of dying, or maybe it’s because I was sent away with that same expectation, but I don’t have strong ties to my homeland. But as long as we can get along, that’s all that matters.

“I was thinking of taking poison.”

“What?! No!”

“Don’t be hasty!”

“Claire, you can’t do that!”

“Then I’ll drink the poison!”

Of all the members of the royal family, including His Highness Auglia, His Majesty, Her Majesty, and His Highness Julius, only Lord Balk seemed to grasp the plan from the start. He listened with a pleased expression as the others were taken aback by my unconventional approach.

“…Isn’t that dangerous?”

“Melissa will be there, and I wouldn’t be much help in a fight anyway. I figured I might as well make the most of myself.”

I was happy to see them all worried about me, but I quickly explained my plan and they relaxed, with some even laughing at the situation.

“Hmm…I’m not convinced.”

“I agree. Claire, if you were to fall to the floor and not get up…”

“Don’t worry, Your Highness. I have the knowledge to prevent that.”

I have an extensive knowledge of poison, just like a medical encyclopedia, stored in my head. As a member of royalty, I have access to forbidden books and have taken advantage of my position to read them.

I’ll utilize both poison and antidote. I make sure to have the poison and the antidote ready. This is not something I can rely on others for. It’s only because I have the knowledge, and others may not have the knowledge about the antidote.

“But… will it end well this way?”

“It’s likely that the emperor and Lilia are present at the gathering, given that the Empire intends to instigate a war. Most of the others there are probably combatants. The plan is, if I were to ingest poison, their services would no longer be required. They may then resort to political strategies, so I’ll leave that contentious matter in the hands of their majesties.”

And so, I take a step back  and watch from the sidelines.

After consuming the poison, I returned to my chamber but didn’t immediately take the antidote. I anticipated that my father and Lilia would visit, claiming they wanted to check on me, since I was not married to Prince Auglia.

Maintaining peace between nations is of paramount importance. My scheme will be put into motion during their visit.

Father, I hope you understand me.
