Villainous Husband, The One You’re Obsessed With Is Over There - Chapter 1
I don’t know how this happened. But, I am now being sold as a bride to the handsome villainous tyrant Emperor in the novel…
If I had been possessed by this novel a little earlier, I would have struggled to avoid getting married no matter what.
Well, aren’t there an infinite number of ways?
Like dropping a carriage off a cliff and pretending to be dead.
However, even if the timing was bad, it was too bad. I…
“Will you ask God Actila to protect in order to establish an eternal marriage bond?”
A wedding with the villainous emperor, I got possessed while walking down the aisle…!
This is a situation where you can’t even do anything about it!
Before even being able to try to change the original, I shed tears as I became in this state. Glancing over the veil at the priest, he stared at me as if he was telling me to quickly say ‘yes.’ I couldn’t say no or run away in this cumbersome wedding dress like this.
In fact, the answer was already decided, and I have to say something.
A cry escaped as I mustered my courage to say ‘yes.’
Now, it was the Emperor’s turn, who was next to me. I couldn’t even glance sideways, fearing that my neck would fly off if I dared to look at him.
‘Ah. You might be wondering if he is going to cut my head like that?’
This guy would really cut it.
That’s how serious he would actually cut my head. It’s really up to the Emperor’s heart to spare my head or not. Ordinary people like us shouldn’t be judgemental.
‘Anyway, his presence is really overwhelming…’
The weight of the air around him feels different.
Since it’s a wedding, he wouldn’t cut open a person.
A heavy yet silky voice could be heard next to me. It’s a frighteningly beautiful voice. Perhaps this voice also played a part in making so many women cry, and hang on to all this nonsense?
I was shivering with the bouquet in hand, waiting for his answer to fall.
Phew. I’m glad the veil covered my nervousness.
“…Until I get tired of this, shall I do this?”
And, the Emperor next to me didn’t disappoint.
After all, he doesn’t take your marriage vows the same way as everyone else. He really has a rich personality. Please end this. It will definitely go down in the history of weddings.
I’m so happy to be in the middle of that historical scene like this.
All right. Actually… I’m not happy. I’m incredibly scared.
Ugh. I don’t know what is going through my mind right now, though I think I have to think about something to get through this.
I’m on the verge of losing my legs.
The priest in front of us seemed to be embarrassed by the Emperor’s unique answer, who was full of personality.
No. No, priest—!
Don’t panic for more than five seconds!
What do you take the Emperor’s patience for? Do you want to make this a bloody wedding?
In the midst of panic, the priest finally opened his mouth.
“W-Well then, the two of you exchange your rings!”
As soon as the silence fell, the priest opened the ring box and held it out.
I picked up the ring slowly with trembling hands. At that moment, there was only one thought in my head was,
‘You can’t drop it. Don’t drop it… I can’t guarantee that the moment it falls, my hair and body will be combined after five minutes as soon as you fall…’
I squeezed the ring as tight as I could with my thumb and index finger, and quickly put it into his hand.
At first, I thought it would be rough because he had mastered all kinds of weapons, but it was a beautiful hand with gracefully raised joints.
‘This is nothing. This is fantasy. Even if it says that it’s a hand holding a pen, I’ll probably believe it.’
My hand wavered as I put the ring on.
His Majesty the Emperor was still following along with this tedious ceremonial act. Seeing him put the ring on my hand like a decent groom.
However, that doesn’t guarantee that this person will be as good as he is now in three minutes. Because the current Emperor of the Actilus Empire could never stand boredom and had a simmering temper.
I shut my eyes, hoping that the wedding would be over soon.
“The kiss of the two oaths.”
Hearing those words, my eyes narrowed even tighter.
Ha, right. For a wedding…that’s—there was such a procedure. Obviously, there was such a procedure. The groom walks and kisses the bride’s veil…
Priest, but this is just an arranged marriage. Is such a procedure really necessary?
…Are you saying I should kiss this scary guy?
Your Majesty, why don’t we skin this procedure in a unique way, just like you said the oath earlier…?
Even though I was standing still like a rock, my head was filled with all sorts of thoughts. At that moment, the veil that was blocking my view was lifted.
He really wants to do it?
I closed my eyes quickly, tensed like a mouse in front of a snake. But, even though I counted to three, five, and ten, his lips did not come close to me.
After all, he wants to have a unique wedding without the kiss of the oath?
I opened my eyes very quietly.
At this, I paused abruptly, startled.
A man who could be called the incarnation of the sun was gazing at me. In the novel, the word “beautiful” was emphasized once every ten pages, yet in reality, the ripple effect was different.
‘No, how the hell does it become like this?’
His brilliant curly, golden hair was dazzlingly trimmed to the perfect proportions of his neck. While his bright red eyes added a hint of ominousness and unrealism to his face.
He smiled at me, who was struggling to digest this overbearing beauty. To be precise, one side of his thin lips was pulled up.
He then said in that smooth voice of courtesy.
“That’s a relief…”
W, what is it?
“If you had opened your eyes five seconds later, I would have been very bored.”
With those words, he hugged my waist and pulled me in closer.
I honestly couldn’t remember what the kiss was like.
It was because I was relieved that he did not feel bored within just minutes after marrying me.

『 Flowers Bloom In The Abyss 』
That is the title of the novel I possessed into.
The word ‘flower,’ of course, means the female protagonist, Saint Seraphina, and the word ‘abyss’ refers to the Actilus Empire.
His Majesty the Emperor of the Actilus Empire, whose hobby is conquest, was as busy as usual when he met a saint, Seraphina, at the temple.
The Emperor saw himself, stained with blood, in the eyes of a beautiful, white saint, and felt intense love and hatred for her.
As a result, after robbing her from the temple and bringing her into the Empire, he tried to defile her … As you can infer from the title of the novel, far from getting dirty, Seraphina shines more purely and more beautifully even when she goes through rough things.
The Emperor’s obsession gets worse and worse, and then he kills the heroine’s first love, Eden, the knight.
Seraphina, who could not stand that much, ran away. And so, the Emperor went on a rampage.
…I mean, the Emperor is the male protagonist of the novel, though he does have garbage behaviors and dies at the end, so in a way, he can also be regarded as the final villain.
After I finished reading the novel, I fell asleep, leaving a review with my anger, saying, “Why is this selling in romance novels when there’s no romance anywhere?”
Then, what about the Empress’ presence in the novel?
Well, why not?
The Emperor, who could only remarry after bereavement—the first thing he did after kidnapping Seraphina and returning was to slit the Empress’s throat. In front of Seraphina, whose face turned white in astonishment, the Emperor smiled gruesomely, with blood splattered on his face.
Up to this point, that was the prologue of 『 Flowers Bloom In The Abyss 』
The Empress was decapitated almost immediately at the beginning of the novel without even mentioning a name.
And, the Empress is me.
‘Writer, are you punishing me like this for leaving such a bad review…’
I feel like tearing my hair out.
I’ve read a lot of books and novels, but…
Don’t a lot of people usually get possessed into villains? So, am I beating the original work by not making the mistakes the evil woman did?
I was possessed by an extra that wasn’t too bad. If I possessed the villain, I would throw a curveball into the situation that reverses the original behavior of the Emperor.
Nevertheless, in this case, what should I do?
Taming the Emperor?
Why would I choose something crazy like that?
The Actilus Empire gave birth to many children and crowned only the strongest one. That means, the one who killed others and ascended up became the emperor.
The current emperor of Actylus, Raniero, was the youngest at the age of thirteen during the ‘Blood Succession Ceremony,’ killing both his older brothers and sisters to become Crown Prince.
I only know up until here.
He dragged his brothers’ severed necks by their hairs and reached the emperor’s presence.
The moment when the emperor was delighted by the strength of the youngest prince and was about to congratulate him—
—A dagger flew and pierced the emperor’s chest.
In front of the emperor, who vomited blood, Raniero was smiling innocently. He reportedly said this while staring at the emperor,
“Waiting is boring. I want to be crowned now. It annoys me that someone is on top of me.”
Do you know how serious the boredom hater is about this idiot Emperor? Thus, isn’t it obvious how he will react to someone trying to tame him…?
Even if I had nine lives, I would never try in this situation.
Still, I didn’t want to die quietly.
So, there is only one way.
‘Let’s live as if we were dead, as if we aren’t really here.’
Fortunately, it was said that the Emperor, Raniero, did not visit the empress after the wedding.
The original empress must have cautiously challenged that part, but let’s not do anything that I don’t know about such a subject. It would be a big deal to imprint my presence like that.
Didn’t Raniero slit the empress’ throat as soon as he caught the saint because the original empress had so appealed to her by periodically requesting her annexation?
She wouldn’t have done that if she didn’t even know if there was an empress.
wouldn’t have done such a thing if she didn’t know whether the empress was there or not
‘And, on the day Raniero goes to the temple, let’s pretend to be dead in disguise and run away!’
Raniero wouldn’t bother to confirm if the Empress was really dead because he just needed an excuse to take the saint as his second wife. In Actilus, they must have a monogamous marriage, and divorce was impossible, so there was no other way.
‘Oh? This might be easier than I thought, right?’
It was when the happiness circuit was burning in my head, a smooth voice could be heard right under my nose.
“Empress, how long are you going to ignore me standing in front of you like this?
I almost jumped out of my seat.
As I endured my eyes trying to pop out and covered my mouth in surprise, I finally saw the crazy Emperor.
“My presence… Are you ignoring me?”
His lips twisted up.
The danger siren started spinning in my head and cold sweat was running down my back.
A second after I decided to live like a dead man, what crisis is this again!
