“Why? “Couldn’t you have told me after you got married?”
When I cautiously told my mother I met at work that I was getting married, she raised one eyebrow and said harshly.
I was feeling prickly, so I just smiled awkwardly.
“No, that’s not it…”
My mother seemed very uncomfortable, as if she had heard the news of my marriage somewhere first.
Of course, I wanted to tell her this news first, but I had to prepare my mind for many reasons, so I put it off. He ended up losing.
To be precise, it was because Seo Ji-han needed to mentally prepare.
“Hehe, but it’s okay since I told you now, right?”
I tried to talk brightly to lighten the mood, but it seemed to have the opposite effect.
In the end, I ended up getting my mother’s hand on my back for the first time in a long time. I
‘m glad that this is the president’s office and the only people with me are the assistant manager and the deputy manager. It almost ruined my image. It was obvious.
“Ugh! How can I be okay? I’m not even thinking about my mom being upset!”
In fact, it didn’t hurt at all, but I was trembling and twisting my body back and forth, and the worse conductor intervened: ”
There’s a lot of work these days, and the wedding was decided in a hurry, so it’s okay to be hectic. Don’t be like that.”
When the deputy director tried to stop her, my mother sighed and lowered her hand, pretending not to be able to resist.
Perhaps because they often worked together, the deputy director and my mother were very close.
“Why can’t someone who is still a child get married…”
came out inadvertently. My heart sank at my mother’s true intentions.
In my mother’s eyes, I am still a child, and Seo Ji-han is a scoundrel who bewitches and marries such a child.
Although Seo Ji-han has shown a lot of care for me over the past time, is it still not enough for my mother?
“Mom, do you want to meet Seo Ji-han today?”
Even if it doesn’t go as far as ‘Please give me a daughter’, it would be good to talk honestly at least once about the kind of person I want to marry.
Then, Mom will feel a lot more relieved.
But my mother sighed again and shook her head.
“That’s enough. What will I do when I meet you? Are you trying to get permission to get married?”
“Something like that?”
“If I tell you to break up, will you break up?”
When I closed my mouth in response to the sharp question, my mother laughed and lifted her finger and put some chestnuts on my forehead.
It hurt a little this time.
I rubbed my forehead and looked at my mother with resentment, then clicked my tongue briefly and opened my mouth.
“it’s okay. I’m not getting married, so what does it matter if I like it? As long as you like it, that’s fine. Live well. “I’m getting married like roasting beans in a flash of lightning without even telling my mom… and I’m leaving.”
The mother who was speaking momentarily swallowed her emotions with a tearful expression and then quickly walked away.
Then, just before leaving the president’s office, he stopped and asked a question.
“Have you picked out a dress?”
Mom’s voice trembled slightly.
“Oh no, not yet.”
“Choose with Mom.”
After answering my question, my mother quickly left the president’s office.
As Ban Seo-jin crossed paths with his mother and entered the president’s office, he stopped.
“uh? Mother, what…” Even
after hearing Ban Seo-jin’s voice, my mother quickly left the president’s office as if running away.
She had a puzzled expression on her face, but when she found us standing in the president’s office, she walked in with an expression of understanding.
“Marriage story? ”
“Hmm, so that’s why you had that kind of expression.”
I didn’t ask what his expression was. Because I thought I knew enough without having to hear it.
Ban Seo-jin placed the documents he had brought with him on the president’s desk, then sat down on the corner and opened his mouth in an arrogant tone. “By the way, I heard they fight a lot before the wedding
. “What about you guys?”
“Are you fighting?”
“Uh. Well, I heard they fight a lot because they’re having trouble with this and that.”
What could cause trouble? There was no one around me who was married yet, so I had no idea what Ban Seo-jin was talking about.
But the assistant manager and deputy director also looked curious as to whether everyone was really fighting.
“No. We don’t fight…”
“Really? How is Seo Ji-han doing these days?”
“Seo Ji-han is always smiling these days.”
Ban Seo-jin’s expression as if asking him to elaborate further reminded me of Seo Ji-han’s appearance over the past week or so.
When I asked Seo Ji-han, who was smiling so happily while eating breakfast, if something good had happened, he answered.
‘huh? Because the apples are crunchy. It’s so good. ‘Crunchy.’
I asked Seo Ji-han, who was smiling happily while basking in the sunlight with the window open, if he saw anything interesting, and he answered.
‘Ah, I feel like the laundry went well, which makes me smile.’
Seo Ji-han, who was rummaging through the shelves, turned around with a smile on his face, so I asked him a question and he answered.
‘I ran out of detergent. I’ll go buy it and come back. haha.’
I don’t know why it makes me laugh, but it’s like this anyway.
These days, Seo Ji-han is always smiling.
Even on rainy days, I laugh because it rains. When the sun rises in the morning, I laugh because the sun rises. When the moon rises, I laugh because the moon rises and when the day is cloudy, I laugh because the day is cloudy.
Eundami even came once in a while to annoy Seo Ji-han, but even then, he kept smiling and saying that he was happy.
Seo Ji-han was so cute when he smiled like that, and when I smiled at him, Eundam disappeared without me even knowing when he was gone.
“…haven’t you become a fool?”
“Hmm, that’s good, right….”
Ban Seo-jin, Assistant Manager Kim, and Deputy Director Shin said one word at a time, one at a time.
The three people exchanged glances for a moment and nodded as if they understood.
“By the way, are you going to invite Gaeseohoo too?”
“Oh, by the way, I met you briefly this morning. “I guess I heard from Eundam, but he said congratulations on your marriage.”
“Did you say anything other than that?”
“I asked if I needed a wedding dress, and I said no. “When I told him I was going to keep it simple, he seemed displeased with something.”
“Daemonial clothes? Crazy….”
“I will wear a wedding dress and over it, I will wear a veil, which is a veil prepared by Mr. Elfanis.”
While Ban Seo-jin nodded and understood, Assistant Manager Kim quickly joined in.
“What about the bridesmaids? Have you decided on the bridesmaids? Oh, are you calling a friend?”
“No. I don’t plan on inviting any civilian friends to this wedding. I think everyone will be surprised and I don’t have many friends in contact after that.”
“There is no need for a bridesmaid. The entrance will be with Mr. Elfanis and my mother. It is not an ordinary wedding, but a royal wedding according to the traditions of Mr. Elfanis.”
“Ah. Mr. Elfanis is taking care of it.”
“Yes. As a saint, Mr. Elfanis will serve as priest and preside over the event. Thanks to you, I feel very comfortable and I am just grateful.”
“I see. If you need help, let me know. I have to go and help.”
“I don’t think there’s much need for it since there are a lot of manpower in the dungeon, but I’ll pass it on to you.”
At my words, Assistant Manager Kim touched his cheek with a slightly regretful expression, then suddenly checked his watch and jumped up from his seat. “Um, that’s right. By the way, if I don’t move quickly, my
afternoon schedule will be delayed. I have a meeting next time, so I’ll go. Deputy Manager, too.” “I have to go, right?”
“Oops. I also have an inspection.”
All three of us were very busy people, so we dispersed as soon as we checked the time.
While I took care of the dungeon management work, I took the time to choose a dress with my mother, belatedly handed out wedding invitations, and laughed happily with Seo Ji-han.
And finally, the day of the wedding dawned.
“Um, the wedding dress. “It suits you very well.”
After the dungeon residents left to congratulate each other, Elfanis appeared with her mother and Seungju for the last time.
My mother had a very satisfied expression as she continued to adjust the dress she had chosen with me.
In fact, she had a complex expression at times until she chose the dress. As the day came, she seemed to have gotten better and felt much lighter.
“The dress is so pretty. The veil that Elfanis made me is also very pretty.”
The mother, who was happy with her cheeks red, played with the end of the veil.
This veil had been made and embroidered by Elfanis. Elfanis watched
with a proud expression and then said with a slightly regretful expression.
“But it’s like that . “It’s unfortunate that it’s too simplified.”
“It’s a pity. It’s a wedding blessed by a world saint.”
“Hehe, that’s a shame.”
Elfanis, with slightly blushing cheeks, took a deep breath and glanced at the door richly decorated with flowers and jewels.
“Shall we go then?”
When Elfanis gave a signal, my mother began to walk in front of me, holding a huge scepter.
The staff, studded with golden jewels, glowed on its own even though it had no electricity.
It was one of the treasures in Elfanis’ treasury.
This scepter is held by the late king or a person of equivalent rank to brighten the king’s future path and bless him.
Since the current king was me, it was natural for my mother to take on the role of the late king.
I slowly relied on the light of the scepter my mother held and walked through the dark. I started walking down the wedding road.
In the darkness, only the sound of a veil brushing against the carpet echoed quietly.
When I finally reached the altar at the end of the road, all the thick curtains on the windows were rolled back, as promised, and bright light flooded into the wedding hall. It was
dark . As soon as I went, the figures of those standing in the ceremony hall caught my eye.
At the sight of my appearance revealed for the first time, impressed gazes poured in from all directions.
After briefly looking around at them, I took a deep breath and raised my head.
The king’s entrance was over, so this time, It was my partner’s turn. Directly
across from me, I saw Seo Ji-han smiling brightly beyond the black and purple curtain.
Seo Ji-han, holding an arm full of pure white flowers, began to walk slowly under Rodran’s stern escort
. “I told you not to laugh, but…”
Elfanis, who had walked in with me and was standing next to the altar, muttered softly as if she was in pain.
In this solemn atmosphere that seems to be a reproduction of an ancient famous painting, that smiling face is certainly foreign.
Anyway, being uncomfortable is being uncomfortable, and a ceremony is a ceremony.
Elfanis quietly recited a prepared message.
“A new season is coming to you.”
Hearing Elfanis’ voice set the mood, I tried to put on a solemn expression.
However, when I saw Seo Ji-han walking towards me with a bright smile, I couldn’t hold back my laughter.
As he got closer, the corners of his mouth began to become looser.
In the end, I ended up laughing too.
Elfanis seemed to be trying hard to hold back the urge to shout, ‘It’s a mess! It’s a mess!’
But what can I do with something that’s good?
I tried not to laugh, but I can’t help it.
Seo Ji-han, who walked the entire Wedding Road We arrived in front of this altar and laid down the flowers.
We held hands and touched our foreheads while listening to Elfanis’ congratulatory message.
While listening to Elfanis’ low voice, I kept giggling and had a hard time holding it back.
He said to me : It’s come.
A new season. It
‘s a season I’ve never experienced before, but it will definitely be more fragrant and warmer than any other season.
Even if the bitter cold and fierce heat come, I think it will be okay. As long as
I’m with everyone here . .
