“It has been two years … two years since the day I let you come into this family. Not only has variety of healthy food been served but the astrologers also chose a special day to share a room. Why couldn’t you get pregnant?”
“Even your son’s fingertips I have never got the chance to touch, how could I conceive a baby if I have never slept with him before?”
I tried to hold back these words in my mouth during the the talk with Duchess Camilla, my mother-in-law.
I am Selena, born in an incomparable family to the royal Efret’s. The former Duchess chose me to give birth to a Duke’s successor just for a simply reason, she witnessed how fertile of my family! For the deal, I agreed to accept this marriage in exchange for her support for my siblings’ lives.
What about my husband? He remained being a sick person on bed in years and when he suffered an agony, it seemed that he could end his life at any time. That was why the Duchess necessarily rushed to have an heir for keeping the noble bloodline! However, her only son even didn’t want to breathe the same air with his wife!
“No matter how hard you try, you won’t get what you want from me. Don’t even dream about it.” He gave me a disgusting look.
I ignored his terrible temper and determined to take care of him. Help him recover and healthier is the only way to change my destined fate (the original novel closed with the tragical death of Selena).
