She was sent by God - Chapter 90
When the news of Laslo’s participation in the war was confirmed, the castle began to stir.
As expected, no one welcomed the participation of the lord, who has no successor.
At worst, the old men of the vassals, who had not been on good terms with Agnes, ran to her feet at once and begged.
“Madam, please say something.”
“Oh, well. The Duke already decided. It’s no use telling me this.”
“If the duchess says so, wouldn’t he listen to you?”
“That’s right. He’s a person who cares about his wife so much. Please don’t let him go. What if something happens to him?”
The old man with thick white hair was rolling his feet and brimming with tears.
But Agnes, who was listening, was also frustrated.
“How could I not have said that? I’ve persuaded him several times, he’s very immovable.”
“Madam, do it again. One more time…….”
“No, wait. Now that I think about it, how did you guys take care of the lord, that he grew up with a strong will? It’s only been a year since I’ve been here, haven’t you guys been with Laslo for decades?”
“That’s true, but…….”
“Does it make sense that a person without a successor goes to war? Tell me if you have a mouth.”
As he was speaking, he suddenly got heated up and started screaming.
In the end, the elders could not find their way.
After kicking out all the elders, Ney poked her head out.
“I got a call from the temple. Madam.”
“Why? Did they ask me to persuade Laslo?”
“No. They said the ceremony is ready.”
It was then that the heat-stretched head quickly cooled.
Agnes told Ney to bring the cleanest and neatest clothes.
“But what kind of ritual is it?”
“Ritual of the oath.”
“What? You’re going to do that all of a sudden? Right before the lord goes to war?”
Ney jumped out of nowhere while waiting for the clothes. On the other hand, Agnes was prepared.
“I’m doing it because I need to.”
“What if the lord gets into a bad situation? If he dies you can never have children. You can’t do that when you have a ritual of oath.”
Ney spoke low and fast. Agnes rolled her eyes at her.
“Don’t say such rude things, just tie the ribbon properly.”
“Madam, this is a serious problem. Didn’t the Elders oppose this?”
“Is it necessary for a couple who are already married to ask permission to do the ritual of oath?”
“You talk a lot today. Your hands are slow.”
Agnes’ voice suddenly became cold. Ney then shut her mouth and tied the ribbon.
Of course, her face had a lot of things she wanted to say, but Agnes didn’t care.
As she was about to finish preparing, Laslo knocked on her door.
“I’m almost done.”
Agnes said looking at the man reflected in the mirror.
Laslo was wearing tight robes, but somehow, he looked nervous.
She finishes it off by putting pearls on her head and adorning it.
Agnes liked the appearance very much. So, she asked Laslo after spinning around.
“What do you think? Is it okay?”
“Beautiful. As always.”
He kissed the back of her hand familiarly.
Agnes smiled and put her hand on his arm. Laslo walked together in her stride.
“I heard the elders came to see you today.”
“It’s upsetting to them that the Lord is going to war.”
“I’m sorry. It’s a matter to be sorted out in my line.”
“It’s done. It is part of my responsibility to stop you.”
When Agnes replied back, Laslo became a honey-eaten mute.
He looked at her constantly. After getting on the carriage to the temple, he said quietly.
“I will tell them firmly. Not to bother looking for you for that reason.”
“If they come for the same reason, I’ll take care of it myself, so don’t worry.”
“Is that so? Perhaps because you are part of the royal family, dignity flows through your words and actions.”
“I can’t believe it’s accurate to connect and cut here. Hmm. That’s great. It’s flawless.”
Looking out the window, Agnes squinted and stared at Laslo’s side face.
“Are you hiding something from me?”
“What do you mean you’re hiding it?”
“I’m not a person who reads minds, but the way you look right now. This is what Chavolti used to do when he lost my precious hound.”
Seeing that he doesn’t deny it right away, there must be something more. Agnes glared.
“Tell me before we arrive at the temple.”
“…I originally planned to leave for the capital in three days, but my schedule has been pushed back a bit.”
“What do you mean push back? So, when are you leaving?”
The word is tomorrow morning. Agnes bit the inside of his mouth hard.
“Why do you have to leave so early?”
“Something happened in the capital city.”
Then he closes his mouth like a clam again. She said, looking at him.
“Is that a secret too?”
“I really doubt that we are married.”
Agnes lowered his voice and looked straight at Laslo, who was sitting opposite him.
“Are you in doubt? What does that mean?”
“A married couple is a bond that lives on the basis of trust, but can it be said that we are a proper couple when there are so many things you hide from me, your wife?”
“Besides, we haven’t had a first night.”
“That’s because of you!”
“How am I?”
As Laslo raised his voice, Agnes’s voice also grew louder.
“That day, I took courage and went to your bedroom! How dare you!”
“What are you talking about?”
“Don’t you remember that day? The day I didn’t wear my…….u… un…underwear!”
As she spoke, shame and resentment erupted at the same time.
“What? Was there a day like that?”
“Did you forget? How could you forget that!”
Now, anger has overwhelmingly risen more than shame.
She glared at Laslo with blazing eyes.
“When did that happen?”
“It hasn’t been that long. Just the day before Count Dentarike came.
“Oh! Oh? Is that all you can say?”
“Did I make a mistake that day?”
After reading the traces of anger scattered on Agnes’ face, Laslo’s voice gradually became smaller.
“I made a big mistake. I put down all my dignity and status and made a big decision, but my husband kicked it heartily.”
“When did I ever do that?”
Laslo expressed his true feelings of being accused unfairly and frustrations. Agnes grunted her teeth and said.
“Why didn’t I wear underwear that day?”
“Hmm. Because the maid forgot?”
“Because you ran out of underwear?”
“Ha! Are you saying that the Duchess of Arpad ran out of underwear?”
Then the carriage door opened. She was so absorbed in the conversation that she did not even know that the carriage had stopped.
The servant, who opened the door, looked at the couple with a confused face.
The face of the Duchess, who had always been calm and graceful, was burning red.
As usual, Laslo got out of the carriage first. Then reached out to help her come down.
“Then what was the meaning of it?”
“You still don’t know? I already said it out of my mouth! Do I have to tell the duke?”
“I’m not asking because I don’t know.”
Agnes naturally grabbed his outstretched hand and got off the carriage.
“Of course, it’s to go to bed together!”
“What? No? How is that connected?”
Laslo’s face changed strangely, as if he had heard an absurd story.
In front of the temple, several priests were waiting for the couple.
They approached the couple and tried to give flowers, but quickly fell back when they realized that their atmosphere was unusual.
“I told you this far, so why don’t you know yet? What on earth did you learn as a kid?”
“Since childhood, I have faithfully learned the responsibilities, duties, and qualities that I should have as a lord.”
The couple was still holding hands tightly. Caterina, the priestess, stood at the entrance and greeted them.
“Welcome. Duke, Duchess.”
Agnes raised her head when she saw Caterina late.
“Please go inside. Everything is ready.”
“Having successors is also one of the duties of a lord.”
Agnes said walking after Katerina. Laslo said bluntly while raising the corners of his mouth.
“I’m well aware of that, too.”
“Aware? You don’t know even such a simple thing, what do you mean by that?”
“How can it be so simple? I found out for the first time today that underwear and bed are interconnected.”
“No! This is common sense!”
“How is this common sense?”
“It’s common sense. Why don’t you know this?”
She burst into a rage. Laslo confronted and raised his voice against it.
Caterina stopped walking and touched her temple.
“The priest. The high priest, please speak to me honestly.”
“Agnes, this is not something to ask the High Priest, even if you ask anyone passing by, they won’t know the connection.”
“Ah, so let’s just ask the high priest next to us.”
“The high priest is a woman, so you never know. You better ask a male priest.”
“Is this what distinguishes men and women? It’s just common sense!”
Katerina’s face became more distorted. The two’s quarrels show no sign of ending.
