1999th bride - Chapter 31
The reason she speaks out was because she thought it’s hard and it’s worrying. So Melissa answered in a loud voice over and over again.
“I’m OK.” “It’s okay… say.” “Yes. I don’t care whether you are human or transcendent.”
This was her sincerity. Melissa wouldn’t have cared if he had been a monster from the start.
“I don’t have many memories of being cared for or helped by anyone since I was born. I always had to figure it out on my own. I did. At least, it was the aunt who taught me how to cook. She was the first, and then you are next. You saved me, fed me delicious food, and you gave me a cozy and safe bed. It doesn’t matter if you’ve done it for other people who have come as brides so far. I am just thinking about what I have received.”
Melissa concluded her words as firmly as ever. In fact, she tried to say thank you at least once, and say thank you so much. Thanks to him, she enjoys luxury here, and in his protection she avoided the eyes of his uncle. She could do it. A life that could have been filled with misfortune began to sparkle when she met Wolfward. He saved her. He was the one who pulled her out of the water she was about to give up on herself.
But whether he’s a transcendent, a monster, or a bat. What does it matter anyway?
“This is you who I know. He likes to work in the garden and cares about his possessions. He is a simple and friendly person.”
“You are good at cooking and perfect at housework. You want to keep the space clean and tidy. The coolest thing is that you don’t force me to do it yourself. It must be because it’s a familiar and accustomed behavior.”
“That sounds right.” Wolfward admitted. Melissa smirked and smiled.
“Yes, that’s right. Wolfward. You are a very kind man.”
“Thanks for the compliment.”
“What. I was only telling the truth.”
“Since I’m confessing the truth, then… will you listen to my story?”
In fact, I had no intention of telling my own story. What are some good stories to hear? It was enough to know the pain alone and to know the sadness alone. Sharing with others will only make it difficult for others. But strangely, at this moment, Melissa wanted to make a secret confession to him.
“I am here for a reason.”
“Isn’t it because it was sent from the Empire?”
“Yes and no. I chose it myself. It was to avoid forced marriage.”
His eyes frowned at the word forced marriage and then straightened again.
“Isn’t it also a forced marriage that came to me?”
“It is, but at least I wanted to get married on my own.”
Melissa still remembered and couldn’t forget it. That day, the face and tone of his uncle who hated her to the point that she trembled. The thick hands and belly fat that stretched out towards her. It’s like looking at hidiousthings.
“My uncle was trying to sell me to an old man. He was probably going to get some money in return. But the Empire chooses a bride. I was the bride to go to you. Girls from already prominent families do..”
