The Bride Who Wants to Die - Chapter 13
If I had been my sister.
I’m sure Roy-sama would have fallen in love with me.
My sister’s hair is a rich blonde, and her eyes are a little like Roy-sama’s.
The beautiful lines of her body are wrapped up by her gorgeous dress, and the dimples that appear when she smiles fascinate people.
If I was Linon.
I will be happy that Roy-sama likes me and I will be able to smile every day.
Even if she gets married, she can still live strongly, knowing that his heart has always been hers.
Is what I thought, but this once again reminded me that it was not going to happen.
I am Meg, and no one else.
A holy woman, whose fame was granted by her ability to use healing magic.
I became pregnant.
I know that better than anyone.
I haven’t told anyone yet, and it will take some time for everyone to realize it, but I’m sure I’m pregnant.
Inside my belly, there is the child of Roy-sama.
It gave me some sort of pride.
I had conceived a child with the love of my life.
That day, the day I pleaded to Roy-sama.
He seemed to be feeling guilty.
In front of a woman who says she loves him, but knows that he doesn’t love her.
But it didn’t matter much.
We had achieved our goal.
I want this child to breathe the outside air.
This is my number one wish right now.
I have used too much power and will not be able to stand up in the near future.
For Roy-sama, I healed all the wounds on my own body.
From the collarbone to above the knee.
Maria was surprised when she let me change my clothes the next day, but she left the room without saying a word.
She’s a very good maid. Really.
It’s been almost a month since I slept in the same bed with Roy-sama, but my relationship with him didn’t seem to have changed much.
There were few opportunities to exchange words with Roy-sama, who was still busy with his work, on the other hand, I was given less work to do.
I’m sure Yuri was the one who talked me into it.
Since I was not feeling well, I decided to minimize the use of healing magic.
People are important, but for now, I want to take care of my child who will eventually be born first and foremost.
Today, I was enjoying my quiet time in my room, reading a book while enduring the discomfort of my body.
Perhaps that’s why I was able to keep my composure and put on a smile when Hannah told me that my sisters had arrived.
When I stepped into the guest room, I found my sister and her husband sitting on the chairs.
When she sees me, she stands up and bows to me.
I hadn’t seen my sister’s face since I married Roy-sama.
“Thank you for coming today. How can I help you?”
I just wanted to hear their demand and get things done quickly.
The sight of my sister’s face made my whole body ache somewhat.
“It’s been a long time, Meg. You look beautiful.”
I wonder what my sister wants.
This was the first time I had ever received a compliment from my sister, even though it was not very sincere.
“Thank you very much.”
Even though I replied like that, I felt defensive.
She must have come to ask me for a favor or something.
And if I couldn’t make it happen, she would probably destroy at least one of the castles and leave.
My sister has a temper, after all.
“You know, Johann got sick and the doctors said they couldn’t cure him. You are able to heal not only wounds but also diseases, aren’t you?”
Johann is the name of my sister’s husband.
He has a gorgeous and beautiful face that is second to none, even when standing next to his sister.
“Are… you sick? Allow me to touch you.”
These feelings fluttered through my mind, and I was surprised by them.
How could I think of such a rude thing towards my sister?
“They told me I had a bad pancreas.”
Johan said uneasily.
This person is kind of unreliable.
I wonder if it’s because he has thin arms.
I gently touch his arm and close my eyes.
Oh, sure enough, only the pancreatic area is functioning poorly.
When I said that, my sister and Johan looked at each other.
“Can you heal me, please?”
Johan bowed his head to me.
I gently rubbed my stomach.
You want me to use my powers? For you guys?
“Now I can’t use my healing magic. Besides, like any citizen, I have to ask for quite a bit of money.”
I refused, telling her with the expression on my face that it was inevitable.
But my sister would not back down.
“We are your people, and we are your family. It’s not that you can’t use healing magic, it’s just that you don’t want to. This is not a job, it’s a kindness to your people. Heal us.”
Isn’t that disrespectful?
But I give up.
My words won’t reach this person.
It was obvious.
“I understand. Only this time”
I ignored my sister, who rolled her eyes in disappointment, and put my right hand on Johan’s abdomen.
For the time being, Just make it look like I used my powers.
I’m not going to sacrifice myself or my children for them.
I closed my eyes and tried to count for five seconds.
Before I could, however, I felt a warm sensation around my hands.
…what is this?
I pull my right hand involuntarily.
“What’s wrong with you?”
Johan looks more and more worried.
I smile and shake my head.
“It’s been a while since I’ve used magic, so I didn’t think of it. I think we’re good to go.”
I told them.
“There are still some issues to be addressed, so please be careful on your way home.”
My sister and her husband were a little curious, but they looked at each other, feeling entranced, then left without thanking me since they had already fulfilled their purpose for coming.
It’s really, really disheartening.
I just exchanged bows with them and exited the guest room.
This is the first time I have experienced this.
Normally, I would feel a gradual warmth from my hand to the other person’s injury, but today I could feel it coming from Johan.
Usually, it’s a feeling of giving something of myself to the other person, but today it’s like…
The heaviness in my body had eased, not in my mind, but surely in my heart.
