Chapter 1725 Her True Colors
Many of them were dissatisfied with Aaron, but because he was the king who ruled over them, they had no choice but to put up with him.
They suppressed their anger in Aaron’s presence and picked up the papers. Their eyes widened in horror when they learned the truth. This cannot be! This is not the queen mother we pledged our allegiance to! She will never do such a thing!
“Y-Your Majesty, there must be a mistake!” one of them remarked warily. “Her Majesty will never do this.”
Ha. It seems that you guys still have faith in her. You all refuse to believe it despite seeing proof of her cruelty.
Aaron snorted. “But the evidence says otherwise. It’s up to you all to choose what to believe. The queen mother has committed an unforgivable crime, and I will disclose her actions to the public. By then, she’s going to pay for what she’s done.”
Nancy’s brother was vexed. To him, Nancy was Turlen’s queen mother—the most powerful woman in the nation. It would be unacceptable if she was held and convicted without trial.
“Your Majesty, don’t you think we should investigate this before issuing a sentence?”
“Rest assured that relevant interrogation and verification will be carried out. For those of you who still have doubts, just wait at home and I’ll send you all the evidence soon.”
They exchanged hesitant glances but finally figured there was no point in further protest, so they returned home.
After they were gone, Aaron went to the dungeon to visit Nancy and Monisha. Bound to the cold hard chair, Nancy was fuming with anger when Aaron arrived, for she had never been so badly treated her whole life.
Her glare pierced through his body like a sharp sword the moment she saw her. “How dare you do this to me, Aaron? I’m the queen mother, the most powerful person in the country! Are you tired of being king?”
“I don’t care who you are. You’re my prisoner now,” Aaron replied without hurry. Nancy flushed with rage at his answer.
What an ungrateful brat! I really shouldn’t have gotten rid of Dylan! But it was too late for Nancy to regret her choice.
“I bet the ministers won’t let you lock me up without a concrete reason, so you’d better let me out right now.”
Aaron glanced at her with his cold blue eyes. There’s no way I’m letting you free after what you have done.
“I can’t believe you just said that, Grandma. Just so you know, you’re not coming out for the rest of your life, so enjoy your old age in prison.”
Nancy was staggered.
“What do you mean? Are you saying you’ll keep me here forever?” she snarled. “Who gave you the permission to do this to me?”
“You, of course! You’re the one who brought this on yourself,” Aaron replied with a wry smile.
Without waiting for an answer, he continued, “You’d better not end your life here. Father surely doesn’t want to see a wicked woman who killed her own son in another world.”
Having said that, Aaron turned and left.
“Aaron! Aaron!” Nancy yelled over and over again. “Let me go, Aaron!”
Despite her plea, Aaron walked away without turning back. It was at that moment that Nancy realized the finality of her fate. Aaron was indeed going to intern her for her whole life.
After he got out, Aaron went to Arielle’s place again to express his gratitude.
“Thank you,” he said the moment he saw Arielle and Vinson. He had thought that it would be hard for him to relay his thanks to the couple, but the words came to him naturally when he saw them.
“You’re my brother. There’s no need for that,” Arielle said. Aaron’s heart felt warm after he heard her words.
