STRONG AFFECTION : Chapter 51 – 60

STRONG AFFECTION : Chapter 51 – 60


By Naomi Cindy B

A week later**

The palace is still in great grief and everyone is still in sorrow cos of princess Royalty’s death, her burial held on the second day after her death and it’s surely the most sorrowful burial ever

Rachel is still crying, seems she’ll cry for a long time, Suzy has been starving since it happened, only water has been sustaining her

Kimora cried more than Jimin, Jimin had to be the one consoling though he’s crashing inside too

King Jung has refused to see anyone, he stayed in his chamber, wallowing in grief

Royalty has always been a lovely princess since she was born, she came to the world with a smile on her face and that made everyone know she’ll be a lovely child

And that was just true, she was lovely and kind, cheerful and jovial…. She’s beautiful too, she’s nothing like her mother or brother

She made Suzy a better person and changed her totally, friendly with the maids and kind to the servants…. Everyone in the palace felt her demise in a painful way, everyone except Riya who’s happy that one of her enemies is dead though she put on a sad face, pretending that she’s sad

Janis visited the palace with Brayden and they have been there since her demise, mourning with them

It’s been a week now, one long week..

“I heard king Myung Woo, the king of Gongwon is visiting today” Tania said slowly, joining the others in the kitchen

“What’s he coming to do?” Kimora asked

“I dunno, I just overheard some guards talking about it, I heard there’s a spy in the palace too” Tania replied

” Spy?” Lady Ambrosia said

“Yes, that’s what I heard” Tania replied

“King Jung Mal is wise, whoever it is, he’d fish out him or her” Kimora said with a heave

” Still can’t believe princess Royalty is dead” Tania said sadly

” Please don’t talk about it anymore” Kimora replied and a maid came in with a tray of untouched food

“Princess Suzy refused to eat again” she said

“It’s been a week now, she’s hurting herself by not eating and she won’t even let anyone into her room, not even queen Rachel or queen Sera” headmaid Ambrosia said worriedly

Kimora took the food from the maid and left the kitchen for Suzy’s room

She stayed by the door and can hear the sounds of her cries inside

“Your highness” she called

Suzy continued crying inside

“I understand how you feel but…

” You can never understand how I feel right now, I feel like a part of me just died…. Royalty has become a big part of me, why must she leave me now that I can’t do without her anymore, I’ve come to love her so much” Suzy interrupted

“I know, but not eating won’t bring her back, you’re hurting yourself and in case you dunno, I’m hurting too to see you like this, please just take a bite” Kimora replied

” Go away, I don’t want to* Suzy replied

“I know I’m a low maid but….your highness you can confide in me, I want you to be happy” Kimora replied

” And I told you to leave!” Suzy yelled

“Happiness matters , though this might not be the right time for it but …. just try your best your highness I beg you, open the door and take the food” Kimora replied

Suzy kept quiet afterwards

“Princess Royalty said you should always eat, you must eat well if you want her to be happy up there, please” Kimora said but she still didn’t say a word

Kimora sighed and started leaving but she suddenly heard the door opening

She went back and saw the door open already, she stepped in and met Suzy on her bed

She’s sitting on the bed with a pale face, she looks sickly too

Kimora placed the food on the bed and sat beside her

“Thanks for letting me in your highness” she said

” Why do you care?, Not like I’ve for once been nice to you” Suzy asked without batting an eyelid

” I don’t care if you haven’t been nice or kind, to me….you’re special, even when you used to t©rture me, I didn’t hate you, so now that you’ve changed, I just loved you more” she replied

“Now I know why my brother fell for you, only a few have kind hearts, you belong to the few, just like my Royalty” Suzy said, finally looking at her

” A saying goes….. when life throws you lemon, you make lemonade from it, you just have to adjust your highness” Kimora said

” I think I’m ready to make bowlfuls of lemonade” Suzy said and Kimora smiled

” Please…eat a little” Kimora said, begging with her mouth and eyes

She opened one of the small jugs and raised it up, it contains tea

“It’s chrysanthemum tea, take it first then regain your appetite” she said and scooped it into a spoon

She offered it to Suzy and Suzy slowly opened her mouth, taking it from her

“How’s it?” Kimora asked

Suzy only nodded and she continued feeding her…

A knock on the door made Kimora leave her to check, it’s a guard

“His majesty orders for you to appear in his chamber right now” the guard said

” His…. chamber?”

Queen Rachel’s room***

Rachel wiped the traces of tears on her face though another fell from her eyes immediately

She stood from the stool and went to the table, she picked a jug of water and drank from it, she dropped the jug before starting to pace round the room

All her life, she has never felt guilty but she feels guilty right now

She just killed her only daughter, her only hope, that beautiful soul

She wiped her tears again and went for the jug, she grabbed it and smashed it on the wall, it broke to pieces

Breathing heavily, she sat back on the stool, fuming in anger for Sera and her son

“You both should get ready, I won’t stay still” she said coldly

“Now that my only hope in Miryang palace is gone, I need to speed up my plans with Morris and king Myung Woo, Jung Mal must die next, together with Sera and her children, then my son will take over, and together we’ll rule Miryang, together we’ll make it a kingdom of power and authority” she said, smiling diabolically.

Queen Sera’s room**

“What next right now?” Jimin said sadly.

Sera is sitting in front of him

“Royalty is really gone, I’m sure Rachel will become desperate” Sera said

“Desperate?, Why will she be desperate?” Jimin asked

” You really don’t know a thing right?” Sera said

” Meaning?” Jimin asked

” Royalty is her only hope in this palace” Sera replied

” I still don’t get it” Jimin said and Sera smiled sadly

” Be careful from now on, things will start getting dangerous so don’t get hurt, protect yourself and your sister, I’ll be fine” Sera said

” Mother I don’t und…..

“Your highness!, Lady Kimora has been summoned for questioning in the king’s chamber” Cory’s voice interrupted by the door

Jimin spranged up quickly. “What!”

“She came in with the blood that day, I mean the one she rubbed on Royalty’s forehead, it’ll surely raise suspicions” Sera said

Jimin rushed out of the room, meeting Suzy who’s just coming out of her room

“Kimora was summoned for questioning some minutes ago” she said and Jimin hugged her tight

” Oppa …” She said slowly

“I’m glad you finally came out, did you eat?” He asked, breaking the hug

” I drank tea, I’m ok” she replied

“I’ve been informed, I’m going there right now” he replied

” I’ll follow you”.
