A Stepmother’s Marchen - Chapter 30
In contrast to Theobald, who was just smiling, with his arms crossed, Duke Nurnbert wore a serious look.
The Duke was angry, and the Duchess was constantly clenching her hands with a restless look.
“Nora, can’t you answer me now?
“No matter how immature you are, how could you have caused a commotion even in the presence of the Crown Prince?”
Oh! Indeed, the chandelier on the ceiling felt like it was trembling.
It seems like it’s been a long time since a male adult’s shouting rang in my house.
Nevertheless, the young Nurembert stood with a frown as he glanced at me, but remained silent.
Jeremy, too, was silent on why he did such a thing.
“Oh my God, look at your lips…! Jeremy, why did you do that? Why did you fight?”
“… Oh, I don’t know. They pissed me off!”
“So what is it? What got you so pissed off?”
“Elias, do you know anything about why your brother did that?”
Elias, who was looking at his brother, quickly shook his head from side to side.
“No, I only saw him and that guy talking on the balcony. I thought the two made up, so I went to check on the twins like you told me. Later, the young ladies screamed, so I went there to see that they were fighting.”
He didn’t give me useful information. I looked at the twins, who were staring at their oldest brothers, but they didn’t seem to know anything either.
“Jeremy, what’s the reason?”
“Oh, it’s really nothing… achoo! Cough, Cough! Shuri, I’m sick.”
“Are you pretending to be sick now?”
“No, no, no, no, no! I really feel dizzy all of a sudden.”
It was ridiculous to see Jeremy’s spectacular behavior as he put his head on my shoulder.
It was appropriate to tell him to stop trying to do things that wouldn’t work, but at that moment, I suddenly got worried that he might have measles.
Ugh, I guess I can’t help it.
“What’s wrong with the guy who was fine before? Let me see…”
The harsh sound of the air made my children and I look toward the noise at the same time
The next thing that I saw was the young Nurembert, whose head turned to the side, and the Duke, who looked like the incarnation of anger.
Oh, my God.
I could feel the twins holding my skirt tightly. Needless to say, the air in the room froze in an instant.
Duke Nurembert pressed his forehead with his hand as if to calm himself down, but ordered, “Apologize to Mrs Neuwanstein and the Crown Prince.”
Nora, who bit his bleeding lips gently, glanced sideways at Theobalt with freezing blue eyes.
His fist that was attached to the side was white, which was unusual.
Then the Duke raised his hand again.
“You son of a…!”
The crown prince, who had been hardened with a trembling expression, looked at me with a blank look. Either way, I held the Duke’s arm and continued in half pleading, “Duke, calm down first. They’re still kids. I think there is a good reason for what happened.”
Duke Nurembert, instead telling me not to get involved in other people’s business, he looked at me,
“Lady Neuwanstein, Crown Prince. I hope you will forgive my son for his rudeness today. I think we should probably leave now.”
“I’m sorry. I’ll see you next time!”
“Uncle, take it easy.”
Watching Duke Nurembert holding his son’s nape and pushing him roughly, the Duchess biting her lips, and the Crown Prince chasing after them with embarrassment, I felt an unknown pity for the young Nurembert .
Even though my husband once hit Elias for a problem related to me, the situation was a little different then. Getting scolded in front of children the same age must be very embarrassing…
“Shuri, are you going to hit me like that?”
“Why? Do you want to be beaten?”
“No, but the Duke was so scary just now, achoo, I’m really dying.”
However, as of that day Jeremy really got sick with measles.
Measles was an infectious disease. I, too, knew how painful it was because I had encountered it when I was a child.
Robert, the butler and I were the only ones who had already got measles before in the mansion, so other employees and children had to be completely banned to get close to him.
“What the hell is this… Cough! Damn it, I feel so bad.”
It’s amazing to see him constantly complaining even in the midst of pain. But of course, there weren’t too many things that could be talked about.
