A Stepmother’s Marchen - Chapter 37
“If you really intend to get married, pretend you don’t know anything and go to the wedding tomorrow. Then one of us goes back home to bring fake mother before the ceremony. What do you call, uh, the thing that’s popular among young people these days…”
“Yes! Yeah, Rachel. It’s like a surprise event. Wouldn’t that make fake mother happy?”
It was a mess!
After Leon said that, Elias, who suddenly fell off his chair, and Rachel with sparkling eyes, screamed at the same time.
Either way, Elias, who fell off his chair, jumped up high and ran toward his only younger brother, scattering his tied red hair fiercely.
“You’re really a little scholar! What a great idea!”
“Argh! I can’t breathe!”
It was then that Jeremy, who had been listening silently, hit his knee with his palm as hard as he could, then said when they looked at him, “Will Shuri really like it?”
“…Maybe not? No one hates surprise events.”
“Darn it, I got it. Then I’ll sacrifice myself for the event.”
“Well, big brother, I have an additional idea.”
It took some time for Rachel, whose eyes were shining like stars, to talk properly, she suggested, “When fake mother comes, then we all call her ‘Mother’. What do you think?”
“You and Leon will call her fake mother again.”
“No! I’ll just call her ‘Mom’! That’s why you must call her that too! We can even thank her for raising us with all her heart!”
That was how the event was planned. It was concluded that Rachel would take Shuri to the wedding.
But the special event didn’t see the light in the end.
The wedding ceremony of the century, which had been on people’s lips for months, was held in Wittelsbach Central Cathedral.
It was impossible to count the number of people gathered in the huge cathedral, which was established in the early days of the country’s foundation.
The wedding of Princess Heinrich, well-known as the most beautiful woman in the capital, as well as Neuwanstein ‘s successor,was the envy of all young people.
“I still don’t see Lady Neuwanstein.”
“You’re right, do you think…”
“Oh, my God, no way…”
‘I wish everyone would just shut up,’ Elias nervously thought while checking the time. There were only a few minutes left before the ceremony began. ‘Rachel, what the hell is taking you so long. How long does it take to get here from home?’
“Aren’t they here yet?”
Jeremy, dressed in a white robe, also looked unusually nervous.
“I’ll go in the middle of the ceremony. Don’t you think it’s time for it to start?”
“Well, I guess I can’t help it, but I wish people would shut up.”
“The only groom who would want his guests to shut up would be only you.”
Rachel didn’t return until the ceremony was finally held. The appearance of Princess Heinrich in her dazzling white dress, which seemed to have been woven into a web, was enough to make the men in the audience sigh, but Jeremy was still preoccupied with the two women who didn’t appear.
To him, Shuri didn’t even need a wedding dress to get that much attention. She didn’t even need to smile.
Her frown alone could mesmerize every man around her.
….. He didn’t know if she was aware of that.
Anyway, that was one of Jeremy’s strengths and weaknesses. If he was immersed in his thoughts, he may not care about anything around him.
He didn’t pay attention to the fact that the moment was a really important moment in his life in a way, and that it was the moment when he finally would escape from being a successor to become a marquis.
Perhaps because of the coldness that was flowing out of his expressionless eyes, Ohara, who stood in front of the altar with a bright smile, gave a little strength to his hands.
Jeremy glanced at her and smiled. It was an act without much thought, but she flinched as to how it looked.
“Jeremy Von Neuwanstein, do you take OHara Von Heinrich as your wife in the presence of the Father and the Holy…”
The priest’s voice, who had been officiating, was suddenly cut off as the door of the ceremony place was roughly opened without notice.
And Jeremy looked back. Elias and Leon, who were sitting nervously in the audience, also leapt to their feet and turned around in unison.
Jeremy thought that Rachel was excited, but her emerald-colored eyes glowed particularly vividly from her pale, tired face, with anxiety.
……And somehow when he saw Nora Nurembert standing beside his sister, he immediately instinctively realized something was terribly wrong.
“Oh, brother! Brother!”
Elias and Leon ran to Rachel, who was slumping on the floor, sobbing and starting to struggle.
He couldn’t hear what they were talking about.
Nora strode through the countless crowds that quickly became noisy. Looking as blank as an ice sculpture, he pushed his hand toward him.
Jeremy immediately recognized the brooch lying on his palm.
He could recognize it. Four years ago, during the National Foundation Day, he went around the market and bought it for her.
To her, to Shuri, to their mother.
He gazed at the shadowy, expressionless blue eyes in front of him and turned his head slowly.
His sister was sitting on the floor crying. His 13-year-old sister, who was sitting alone in the corner of the support, cried and shouted at him, “If anyone tries to do something bad to fake mother, you get rid of them.”
Jeremy closed his eyes for a moment. He wanted to answer, but she couldn’t hear his voice.
“You really have to get rid of them. Swear as a knight.”
“Yes, I swear.”
