I Want To Become The Emperor, So I Need A Divorce - Chapter 9
Translator and Editor: Skye and Squiggle Lines
It was a major accident.
It was not the actor’s fault that the queen praised him too much.
It was hard to blame the actor for the queen’s reciting of the lines and her expression that she didn’t like, and the use of the purple cape as a prop was also acceptable just because of Larissa.
But Rick wore a banned item and put it on his finger at the moment Vainas’ sarcasm was over.
“As the queen said, it suits you perfectly. The purple color that symbolizes the king.”
Vainas said, chillingly raising the corners of his mouth.
It was a peculiar sarcasm.
“I meant to keep it.”
Arnoah murmured with an astonished look on her face. Rick’s complexion became more pale.
He couldn’t think of anything to refute or blame.
It was actually quite normal for a member of the royal family to grant a purple sapphire.
He could brag about it even if he was banned from wearing it.
It is a treasure that could be traded, and a bigger gift would come down if it is presented again to the future king.
But Rick put the ring on his finger.
Right after he got compliments from the queen about the purple cape.
It is a behavior that would seem to say, ‘Yes, I look like a royal, too!’
Arnoah held it in his hand and put it within his vicinity, so the excuse that he had that much time to see the jewelry properly was also a useless excuse.
“Well, ma’am, it’s a mistake. I’ll take it off right now!”
Rick twisted the ring as if he was about to pull it out his finger, but strangely it didn’t come off.
He whined, clasped his fingers, and sweat as if he was about to die.
“Your Majesty! The lights were too dark to see.”
Larissa stepped forward and looked, but Vainas’ face was cold.
“Now, because of a small mistake, a promising actor’s future is…”
“I don’t want to hear it.”
Surprised by his cold gaze she saw for the first time, she could no longer protect her cousin and just shut herself up.
“…get that thing out of my sight.”
The waiting guard quickly ran up to the stage and dragged Rick away.
“Y-Your Majesty, I’m sorry. Your Majesty!”
No one could stop the guards. The actors on stage and Count Estea below trembled, swallowing their dry saliva.
“Let’s get back for today.”
Even before the event was over, Vainas jumped to his feet.
“Your Majesty, take Larissa with you!”
Larisa, as well as other servants and maidens around her, followed suit in a wild way.
Some of the maidens raised their eyes to Arnoah at the last minute.
It means that a good seat is created for a crazy woman who couldn’t read the atmosphere.
Maybe it’s going on as she had expected.
‘What’s the point of being his first love?’
Larissa knows what Vainas loves, but she doesn’t know what’s important.
Like a child, he was extremely reluctant for others to be more noticed than he was. He was worried that such a person would appear.
Like Luciano, he was willing to bow down to someone who is considered stronger than himself from the beginning.
But there should not be such a person in the Kingdom of Dirhan. That’s probably why Arnoah, whose bloodline was noble, was an exception to be a rising divinely actress?
Arnoah, who is sitting in the queen’s seat only by name, should not fall in love with the actor and make comparisons to him and Vainas. It was a real slap in the face for Vainas’ pride.
It wasn’t about Rick breaking the law.
While he was annoyed by him receiving a sweet look from his queen, he hated the way the actor wore a ring that should only be allowed for him and bragged it off.
The fact that many people saw that was even more annoying.
Larissa’s side was like adding fuel to the fire.
“This…is my favorite show.”
Arnoah said with a sigh of sincere regret.
“Maybe today’s the last day of the show?”
The faces of some of the actors standing in front of them turned gray. Count Estea still couldn’t breathe properly.
“Is there anything else you want to say?”
One of the staff is in tears.
Half for themselves, and half to Arnoah who should be held accountable. Saying, she’s the one who ruined it, so at least make her pay.
“Oh, I should send my greetings.”
Arnoah, who was leaving the theater, paused and turned around.
However, contrary to the expectations of the staff, she did not take out gold coins.
“I enjoyed it.”
She just smiled and clapped.
The expression of embarrassment earlier disappeared out of nowhere.
“I’m very lucky to see the last of the great actors.”
The last scene.
At first glance, it sounded like an ominous prediction that they would never be able to set foot in the world of performance again.
There was a cold sweat on the back of the actors and employees.
Whether she knows it or not, Arnoah left the concert hall behind with the dazed audience.
The performance was, as expected, abolished just like that. Precaution measures were taken on the same day.
When Vainas left the theater with a firm look on his face, critics who cheered at the concert on the day changed their attitude and wrote only harsh comments.
The theater refused to show additional performances of love and betrayal, saying it should not be caught in the fire for nothing.
It was a natural measure because they would ruin themselves if the king hated them.
The screenwriters, directors, and actors who participated in the performance had difficulties establishing themselves in the industry.
There was no theater company that would bother to hire those who turned the king’s back.
Count Estea was not punished.
However, he suffered losses due to the performance, as he invested lots of money into the play.
Vainas is angry with everyone.
Even Larissa had to sweat her wits out.
Of course, Arnoah is the target of his discord.
“Why did you do that?”
Vainas’ angry gaze shot at her.
“What do you mean?”
Arnoah asked back.
Vainas’ expression became even stiffer with her shorter answer than usual.
“I’m talking about yesterday.”
I can’t wait to get divorced.
That’s the most honest answer she had shouted in her head but she only tilted her head in response.
She looked innocent at first glance but she acted cheeky at first glance when he looked closely and acted mean to him.
“The most handsome man in Dirhan, the purple color looks good, looks like a king… ..do you think those are words from a sane person? The queen of the whole country?”
Vainas looked at Arnoah as if he were going to eat her up.
“The nobles are already saying that the queen has an actor in mind. You don’t even know how it affects my reputation?” He growled.
“What do you know, a little girl who grew up like a greenhouse plant, sheltered? You don’t care what basic manners you should have as a wife!”
The teacup shook precariously as Vainas struck the table.
He poured out vitriolic remarks with a bloated face, but Arnoah laughed in vain. This is not the sound of a man presenting his spouse’s dowry to another woman.
“He is an ambassador.” Arnoah said with a grin.
She was already thinking about how to push Vainas further on her way to her study room. Winning his favour was something Arnoah couldn’t do, but it was too easy to be hated by him.
“You praised Rick, didn’t you?”
When Arnoah’s mouth was too friendly, Vainas frowned.
“A rising actor, a Thousand gold worth Face, a prince fallen from heaven, a face made by God… Ah, he looked so good on you.”
Looking at Vainas’ reddened face, Arnoah continued.
In fact, her praise of Rick was an exaggeration. His acting was just enough to match his role, and his face was clean enough, but it was not enough for Arnoah to make her admire him.
Her standards for a man’s appearance were very high.
It wasn’t because she was picky.
It is because Anakin, who spent part of her childhood with him, is a flower boy called the Lily of the Empire.
If one keeps looking at pretty things, won’t their eyes get used to them?
Vainas struck the desk with his palms again as soon as she was done talking.
Arnoah raised her rabbit eyes and looked at him.
He then said to her, “What kind of vulgar behavior is it for a mere clown to be called a queen… in front of her husband?”
To the feisty Vainas, Arnoah gave no answer.
The two remained eye-to-eye for a while. Unlike Vainas’ red face, Arnoah is calm.
“…it looks like your head is suddenly broken, please think and act as what the queen’s position means.”
Vainas sighed long and concluded so.
So far, Arnoah’s actions look like a mistake of an unwise woman.
“I always remember what the queen’s seat is like.”
She intended to change that judgment.
“How can I forget?” Arnoah said with a smile. And Vainas quickly added before nodding.
“I can only be obtained by one person, but Larisa Estea rolls her eyes and runs.”
