Chapter 1054 Princess
A tear slid down the middle-aged man’s cheek.
The tear then fell onto the report and slightly smeared one of the words.
Stunned, he hastily used a piece of tissue paper to dab the paper. When it was finally dried, he sighed in relief before pressing the paper against his chest as if it was a precious treasure to him.
Right then, someone knocked on the door.
“Who is it?” The man whipped his head around and swiftly hid the report under a stack of documents on the table.
“Your Majesty, it’s me.”
An old man pushed open the doors and stepped in before closing the doors behind him.
When he realized it was his old subordinate, Sybil, Dylan sighed in relief. He then took out the report and asked, “Are you sure this piece of news won’t be leaked to the public?”
Sybil shook his head. “Don’t worry. It won’t. I’m the one who took the blood sample for testing. Even if those few couldn’t keep their mouths zipped, they would only think that I have a child. They wouldn’t relate it to you.”
Dylan then reached out to pat Sybil’s shoulder and said, “Sorry to put you in a difficult spot.”
“It’s fine.” Sybil shook his head before courageously asking, “Your Majesty, you’ve seen the report. What are you planning to do after this?”
Dylan tightened his grip on the report. “Since it’s confirmed that she’s my daughter with Maureen, I have to take her back here. She’s the only connection I have left with Maureen. She’s the proof of our love. I won’t let my daughter remain out in the world alone.”
However, cold sweat began beading on Sybil’s forehead.
Mustering his courage, he then said, “Your Majesty, you can’t take her back in. If the queen mother finds out that you have a daughter with Ms. Moore, she’ll do her best to get rid of her. Even if you managed to convince the queen mother, what about the queen? Although she portrays herself to be gentle and unfazed, you know how evil she is on the inside. Now, what the queen wants most is for Prince Aaron of Turlen to become king. If you bring the princess home now, she’ll surely think of the princess as an obstacle.”
“I know!” Dylan frowned. “That’s why I had you keep this DNA test a secret.”
“What do you plan to do then, Your Majesty?”
Dylan sighed. “I have to bring her home, but not now. Once the situation in the country stabilizes—after we suppress both the queen mother’s and the queen’s forces—I’ll make changes to the law. I’ll legalize the marriage between our country’s people and the people from the rest of the world. When that happens, I’ll bring my darling daughter home.”
Sybil nodded approvingly when he realized that Dylan was not going to do anything rash. “I’m glad that you can hold yourself back. However, you shouldn’t have assigned His Royal Highness to take the princess’ DNA sample. If he starts being suspicious, I’m afraid that he will lay a finger on the princess too.”
“He won’t,” Dylan said as he shook his head. “Although I’m not close to Aaron, he’s my son. I know him well. He’s not like his mother. Although he’s a stubborn boy, he’s kind at heart. I’m doing this to slowly introduce him to his sister. In the future, it’ll be easier for him to accept her.”
“What are you going to do next?”
Dylan was silent for a moment. “Help me gather information about my daughter first. I’d like to get to know her before making any arrangements.”
“I’ll work on it right away.”
Sybil, too, wanted to bring the princess back home as quickly as possible. It had been a long time since he saw Dylan’s eyes that bright.
Back then, the queen mother had kidnapped Dylan and forced him to marry the queen. On the night of their marriage, he had even been drugged. Thus, Dylan had been living like a walking dead after Aaron’s birth even though he still seemed normal.
