Chapter 1724 Smoldering Rage
“You’re the one who should get out.” A voice laced with anger sounded before Carlos could even say a word. Hearing that, Nancy smoldered with rage.
Did you just ask me to get lost? Is that how you talk to your grandma? What an impertinent brat! “Do you have any idea what you’re doing, Aaron?”
Is this how he shows his respect to his grandma? I shouldn’t have made him king. I should’ve just let Dylan live. He, at least, did not dare to talk to me like this.
“Carlos, put her in the dungeon. No one is allowed to visit her without my permission,” Aaron announced, totally disregarding Nancy’s protest.
Carlos was stunned, but he quickly recollected himself and asked his men to capture the queen mother.
“How dare you! Don’t touch me!” Nancy screamed at the soldiers. She glared at Aaron and continued, “What are you doing, Aaron?”
“What am I doing?” Aaron sneered. “You’ll know when you reach your cell.”
With that, he waved his hand at the soldiers, and Carlos dragged the woman away.
“Aaron! I’m your grandma! I’m the queen mother of Turlen! You can’t—” Aaron took out a handkerchief and stuffed it into her mouth before she could continue her diatribe.
Monisha was dumbstruck at the sight.
She did not expect Aaron to have the audacity to apprehend Nancy. What should I do now?
“Monisha, you should go with her,” Aaron commanded coldly as the woman stood there helplessly. Having heard the order, the aide quickly ran over to Nancy, who was caught in a miserable state, with the soldiers clenching each of her arms and dragging her away.
When Nancy saw Monisha following her, she mumbled something unintelligible through the handkerchief.
“Hang in there, Your Majesty. His Majesty is not the weak king anymore. We’re not his rivals now,” Monisha whispered.
She was afraid that Nancy would suffer if she refused to cooperate.
Having served Nancy her whole life, Monisha did not wish to see any calamity befalling her master.
Nancy’s heart sank when she heard Monisha’s words.
What should I do? He had his guards drag me away even before I could do anything.
The news about Nancy being incarcerated spread far and wide in no time. Celeste called Aaron over the moment she found out about what had happened.
“Mother,” Aaron greeted as he went near to hold her shoulder. “You don’t have to worry. I know what I’m doing.”
“Why did you imprison your grandma, Aaron? She is the queen mother of Turlen and has many followers. You know what will happen to you if you—”
“Mother, I considered the consequences when I gave the order,” Aaron assured. After comforting the anxious queen, he left to attend to work.
Shadow overcast Celeste’s face as she watched her son leave. I will not let those people do anything to Aaron!
Many ministers on Nancy’s side requested an audience after she was put away.
They were all Nancy’s valuable pawns in her power play, but Aaron showed no sign of fear in the face of those people.
“Your Majesty, what was it that Her Majesty did that you confined her?” a minister, also Nancy’s brother, asked.
“Do you want to know what she did?” Aaron asked with a smirk. He threw a stack of paper on the table and added, “Take a look yourself!”
