The Discarded Bride’s RemarriageーThe Icy Margrave Swears His Loveー – Chapter 27

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟐𝟕: 𝐈𝐧 𝐒𝐮𝐫𝐠𝐞𝐫𝐲

“Didn’t I tell you it’s the law of the Margrave? The Margrave Heyerdahl territory has a different cultural sphere from other territories, so the unique laws of the territory take precedence.”

The house steward silently opens the law book and displays it to the entire conference room. Although the text is too far away to read, it was sufficient as proof.

“. . .That can’t be. . .”

“What, what are we going to do, Stephan?”

Stephan turns pale and looks down. Next to him, Owenna also turns pale.

Theodore-sama strokes his chin and continues, as if mocking the two.

“Count. Isn’t there something else you should be more concerned about?”

“. . .Huh. . .”

“What, what other thing?”

The two are dumbfounded.

Theodore-sama draws an arc with his ash-blue eyes and leisurely crosses his legs.

ーーThey were the eyes of a predator targeting its prey.

“The lady has harmed my castle’s maid, Nowariya. And she slandered the children of the Margrave family, and even their parentsーーthe loyal servants who protected the Margrave family. Do you understand the weight of insulting the brave officers who protected our country from the ravages of neighboring countries?”

“. . .!!!”

“The Margrave Heyerdahl family may not stand out much in the royal capital’s parliament. However, on the memorial built on the high ground of the royal palace, the names of the loyal servants who bravely fought in our territory are engraved and receive flowers from the princesses of the royal family every day. ーーThey are our pride, and at the same time, the pride of our entire country.”

Theodore-sama’s soft tone gradually mixes with heavy anger.

The atmosphere in the room seemed to freeze. While piercing Stephan and Owenna with his gaze, Theodore-sama asks the notary.

“How long will it take to create the minutes and the complaint to the judiciary?”

The notary, with a satisfied face, pushes up his glasses and answers.

“If it’s this complaint, it will be completed by tomorrow morning. If we send the documents by magic stone express, it should be in time for tomorrow’s reception hours.”

“So it seems. . . The next time we meet will be in court.”

Theodore-sama lifts the corner of his mouth.

Stephan and Owenna looked as if they had lost their sanity.

“What, what are we going to do, Stephan. . .”

“. . .!! How dare you. . .!”

Stephan shakes off Owenna’s hand as she tries to cling to him.

Then, he swings back and slaps Owenna hard on the cheek.

“Kyaa. . .!!!!”

Owenna’s large body tumbles from the chair. Stephan kicks her again. Several knights who were standing by restrained Stephan.

“Lord Heyerdahl!! I’ll say it clearly! This woman is not my wife or anything!! She’s just a parasite!!!”

Stephan, with his hair disheveled, screams in a shrill voice.

“If you’re going to enforce your laws, then I’ll enforce mine. Under my laws, this woman is not my wife. She’s just a parasite eating away at my wealth!!!!”
