Would this historical marriage help the two families reconcile?


The majority of the public answered yes.


Now that they have become in-laws, they would put the old bad blood behind them.
However, if they could see the scene in the reception ceremony, they would immediately realize that their thoughts were completely wrong.


At the wedding party venue to celebrate the birth of newlyweds.
The place that was supposed to be full of joy was filled with only a cold atmosphere.


And then, the cause of such an atmosphere was neither due to the weather outside nor ice, but due to one particular person.


“Newlywed room?”


The groom, who had a sour look on his face throughout the reception, raised his eyebrows.


Anyone would notice his displeased tone, even though he only spewed out two words.
He turned to the butler sharply.


“Did you say newlywed room? As in sharing a bed?”


“Yes, now that you are legally a married couple–“


“Are you saying I am going to share a bed with a woman who might have come to this family to assassinate me?”


“Oh, my, what do you mean by assassination!”


The bride raised her voice, shocked at the unexpected word.


Her beautiful face quickly turned into tears.
Her pale complexion could not be concealed by makeup.


But Glenn, the groom, didn’t trust her at all.


From Glenn’s point of view, it was just a despicable act.
He burst into laughter as her show dumbfounded him.


“Well, Nadia Balazit, let me ask you a question.
Why did you want to marry me? You’re spying, or you’re trying to counterfeit a copy of the treasonous document? You’re going to put treason on our family?”




“Speak the truth.
There’s no one here who would help you.”


Anyone could hear intimidation in his voice.


The terrified bride’s body began to tremble.
She finally opened her mouth after contemplating for a long time.

“Well, I’ve been admiring the Marquis for a long time.”






The sound of grinding teeth could be heard.


“Do you want me to believe such a lie?”


“I do! Please believe me.
I fell in love with you at first sight.”


Nadia, the bride, answered with her sad eyes lowered.
Her trembling eyelids were about to burst into tears.


It was such a realistic performance that Glenn would have been fooled if it wasn’t because she was his enemy’s daughter.


Maybe that’s why he felt disgusted.


‘I’m sure her father made her say it.’


Including the nonsense of loving him.


Glenn was not a fool enough to believe that his enemy’s daughter happened to have a crush on him at first sight.


All of this was just a trick for the Duke of Balazit to plant spies in the static territory.


The King, the Duke’s puppet, actively promoted the marriage.


“Have you ever spoken to me before? Are you telling me to believe that you fell for a man you hadn’t talked to before to the point that you followed him to the North? “


“Do I need a reason to fall in love?”


“You’re crazy–“


“I love you! Please accept my heart!”


He gnashed his teeth as he stared at Nadia, who was still shivering as if she were scared.


Glenn was very suspicious of her intention of willingly walking into this family, but he couldn’t even question the bride.


He couldn’t do her any harm at the moment.


His fist was shaking.

Glenn reminded himself to be patient over and over again and not to act impulsively.


‘There is a very limited amount of things that a vulnerable woman can do in an enemy land without any allies anyway.’


Especially if she was a wife who was not acknowledged by her husband, her range of movement would be restricted.


It wouldn’t be long until he could dispose of an unwanted wife after dealing with his political opponent.


He had to avoid the suspicion that the North was seeking independence until the day he could build his strength.


Glenn clenched his teeth and said.


We’ll see how long you can lie about love.”




Nadia’s face brightened up when he said she would tolerate her existence.


“But you’d better not dream of being recognized as my wife.
There is no way I would have a successor with Balazit’s daughter.”


“But, I’m not my father’s spy! How could you doubt my true feelings?”


Nadia cried at Glenn’s warning.


She covered her mouth and buried her face in her palm as if in despair.


It was because she almost responded the same thing.


‘Keep your word, Marquis.’
