Episode 32: Young and Rich, Tall and Handsome(1)

The tearoom was filled with soft colors, exuding the distinct atmosphere of fall.

“Royal Mother, you have to remain steady, especially in times like this. I am worried about your health.”

“Even if I try, the fire in my chest keeps rising.”

The Queen was held responsible for the last incident and was forced to step down from all the businesses she was in charge of.

Nephther declared that he could not entrust major policies and projects of the country to those who made rash judgments because they were blinded by personal feelings and interests.

The queen’s faction, including Duke Skiela, tried to oppose it, but they weren’t able to. This was because the number of nobles who sided with them had noticeably decreased.

It was humiliating to the Queen who could clearly see how the power was shifting.

But with the atmosphere being as it was, she couldn’t quibble over it.

Even more so since the queen had damaged international diplomatic relations, so she had no more say.

The Emperor of Silvanus was seemingly excited to take advantage of this and sent an official letter, asking how such a false charge could be brought against the princess.

As a result, Irugo had no choice but to concede a few moves to Silvanus.

“This palace is no different from a prison to me.”

The Queen lamented.

By telling her to self-reflect, all of her social activities were suspended. There were no chains bearing on her, but it felt like a prison. Her body was whole, but it felt like her limbs were cut off.

She was practically trapped inside the Queen’s Palace.

The Queen never punished or imprisoned Aristine to prove that Aristine was really a criminal.

Therefore, in accordance with her status as Queen, she was not outright punished, rather, she was asked to self-reflect.

However, in Dionna’s case, the situation was different.

She gave a false testimony that Princess Consort had a poison which did not exist.

This was an act of deceiving the Queen, Aristine, and Irugo’s sacred trial system—although it was not a formal trial. Furthermore, she was the culprit who framed Aristine as the poisoner.

Even Dionna’s family did not try to defend her. On the contrary, they heavily rebuked her and asked her to pay for her crimes.

The warriors who cared for Dionna due to their guilt and friendship towards Chantra also turned their backs on her.

Dionna was now imprisoned in a moss-filled stone prison, awaiting trial.

“If not for that wench, Dionna!”

The Queen ground her teeth.

She ordered the court ladies to prevent Dionna from getting proper rations.

Even in the fall, a stone prison would be as cold as the peak of winter. Imagining that wench shivering and starving made her feel less pressure on her chest.

“If I wasn’t locked up in this palace, I would have gone to that prison right away…!”

And plucked out all of Dionna’s hair until she was satisfied.

“I never planned of accusing the Princess as the poisoner in the first place. But because of that wench, look at this entire mess.”

Hamill smiled softly without responding.

“Hamill!” The Queen grabbed her son’s arm. “Aren’t you angry? Those very nobles used to kneel before me, yet because of this, look how arrogant they are acting to your mother…!”

“They have always been the type to move for their own benefit. This is nothing new.”

The Queen paused. She slowly looked at her son.

Hamill was smiling the same as always.

Right, her son was never the type to get agitated, so he was as calm as a windless lake.

However, something was different.

Suddenly, she remembered what happened when the princess tried to bring the bath bomb, which was thought to be arsenic, towards her face.

At that moment, Hamill was not like a calm lake, but a sea with violent storms. He was her son, but she had never seen him lose his composure like that.

“Hamill, could it be, to that princess, you…”

The idea was so terrible that she couldn’t bring herself to finish that sentence.

“The princess?”

“Back then, why did you do that? Why did you brush it off without even caring that it’s arsenic, hm?” The queen impatiently questioned but Hamill smiled in a relaxed manner and tilted his head.

“It wasn’t arsenic but a bath bomb.”

“But you didn’t know it wasn’t arsenic at the time!”

“After the princess said it wasn’t and poured it on her own hands, I simply realized that it wasn’t arsenic.”


“And I judged that it would be more beneficial for me to stop the princess in that situation.”

Like he said, because of his behavior, Hamill was able to escape being suspected of colluding with the Queen to frame Aristine, his political enemy, as a criminal.

Only then was the Queen able to set her unease aside.

Had Hamill been attacked too, this situation would have been even more difficult.

The Queen smiled and looked at him. “As expected of my son, you are wise and clever. Sure enough, you are the best fit for the throne. Isn’t that right?”

Hamill gently curled his lips. “Naturally, the throne belongs to me.”

The Queen smiled proudly at her son. Even if her limbs were cut off, she had a son like this.

‘Of course, I was worried for nothing.’

On a second thought, it was ridiculous. How could she suspect such a thing?

“I have a meeting soon so I shall take my leave.”

“You must be busy but you made the time to visit your mother who is locked up in this palace. Go on ahead.”

Hamill gave a short bow and left the tearoom.

The fall sun glistened over his visage, highlighting the whiteness of his hair.

The queen smiled as she watched her son’s majestic back.

* * *

As Hamill emerged from the Queen’s palace, he stared at his two hands.

They were spotless without a single smear.

However, Hamill’s eyes were dyed with images from his memory, and his hands looked like they were covered with white powder.


The words he said to his mother were lies.

Hamill thought that it was poison in Aristine’s hands. No, he didn’t care whether it was poison or not.

Knowing that there was the slightest chance that it was arsenic, the moment Aristine poured that white powder into her hand, his mind went blank.

The poison must have seeped into his head.

The pure poison, like that white powder, turned his head white.

So his body moved on its own. He didn’t even consider that he could be poisoned and in danger, instead, he was busy shaking the powder out of Aristine’s hand.

He couldn’t even figure out why himself.

‘So it must have been poison.’

The poison was not in the form of a powder.

It was a person.

He thought of her as an unusual woman.

It was fun to watch her.
It was interesting to see how she solved any difficulty that came her way, step by step.

He felt a pleasant sensation when he gave her a challenge and lent her a helping hand over that challenge.

She was an interesting target of observation that gave unexpected reactions when faced with hardship or stimulation.

He thought that was all it was.

That is why, even when his Royal Mother was in a hurry to slander Aristine with a sloppy plan, he didn’t say anything.

However, when Dionna was framing Aristine for being a poisoner, his mood was…incredibly foul.

He only thought it was because someone was arrogantly interrupting his pleasant observations.

He was more than enough to stimulate Aristine.

The only reason he let it go on was because he was curious about how Aristine would resolve this matter.

Frankly, he thought it was fine even if she couldn’t resolve it. Because he planned on extending a hand.

That way, even Aristine wouldn’t turn away from him anymore.

As that thought crossed his mind, Hamill, who was walking, stopped.

No, it wasn’t just because of the thought.

Like a mirage, Aristine was standing there under the sunlight.

Her long hair shone like jewels through the red maple leaves.

Perhaps sensing someone’s presence, Aristine turned around.

Their eyes met.


That way, even Aristine wouldn’t turn away from him anymore.

Like a rewinding clock, he slowly repeated the thought that just crossed his mind.

Wanting to help her while hoping that she wouldn’t turn away, it was just as if…

As if…

    1. Ngl if it was another universe where Aristine wasn’t married, I too would have probably rooted for them.
      But right now she’s married, to a supporting and clumsily loving husband, have good chemistry with him. That husband is Lu’s brother and basically he lied to and is coveting his brother’s wife while wishing to have her in difficulty only so he could be a knight in shining armour and have her attention.
      Sooooo yeaaaaaaa
      If The “going after a married woman” (even if political or contract, doesn’t matter) factor wasn’t there, I might have supported them.

      1. Category: Bad•B!tch

        Yes he lied to her but if he revealed who he was Aristine would’ve been biased. I wish she would forgive him cos he did explain to her that their families are opposed. I do like hamil 😢 he’s like a privileged ceo ❤️
        Arigatou Rubysan

      2. From his actions iit seems that his attractionis because she’s iNtErEsTiNg to him. And the issue with ‘interesting’ is that at some point it’ll be old hat and then he would treat her similar to how he treats everyone else.

        There’s a reason most stories with an ml who thinks that the fmc is iNtErEStInG rarely have side stories these days and the reason is that they would only work due to “because!!!”

    2. I’ll answer for you, my dear stranger, it’s because they were written with good chemistry. Playful and witty interaction is very appealing to a reader rather than pining and longing that Tarkan does. If he didn’t do some questionable action before then a lot more people would like him and have 2nd ML syndrome

    3. I think you mean it so pleasent to watch them and notice their chamisty together,
      But Aristen and tarkan are the most suitable persons for each other
      Really like the story say they are the couple of century

  1. Thanks for the tranlation Rubu nim…

    A if…..
    Congratulations for your swayed heart mr Lu,
    But sorry… Cant support you..

    GO go tarkar…. Keep your wife save ahaha

  2. Thanks for the translation.
    Then it is Checkmate for Dionna. I alway thought she will become Hamill’s wife then continue as an antagonist in the story.

  3. Such a despicable man. So he the type that let Aristine take blame and trying to be shining armor knight!!?? Tarkan better be shield for Aristine! Take him down together with the Queen!

  4. As if….I’m a loser that’s coveting my brothers wife? Really, he was just watching her like she’s some sort of reality tv show waiting for his golden moment to step in and manipulate her. Such a loser.

  5. Use this comment as a Hamil-repellent spray.
    “You’re likeable. But in another universe. The main couple is perfect so just shoo shoo”

    Also- THANK YOU RUBY 🫶🫶🫶

    1. True… I feel sorry for her brother though. His death was used as a stepping stone by his very own sister. Just because of some guy, I get love and all but don’t family come first?? Well, depends if you love your family and vice versa since that isn’t always the case but clearly, she grew up in a loving home so she doesn’t really need to go around chasing some unrequited love

  6. quit lusting after a taken women and whitewashing it as “observing” you freak wannabe intellectual…sick at how the most unlikable characters got a whole ass chapter…

    it’s fine for her to be unjustly accused as long as you magnificently extract her from the situation? as if she’s just supposed to swoon over that? you were more than happy to look on at the spectacle, dude. all bc it was “interesting”. him constantly putting on airs over being ‘smarter’ than some of the stupidest, conniving cronies (dionna, the queen, and her ilk) is so gross. he has never once been honest w rineh! i rlly dislike his arrogant tendency to absolve himself of any responsibility

  7. Christine Mae Casiban

    The man is confused, hahahah.
    Knowing Rineh so far, she would give Hamill a cold shoulder.

    Thank you Ms. Ruby.

  8. There.

    I dislike Hamill now. People might think he’s kind and have a good chemistry with her but HE IS TREATING HER LIKE SOME GAME. I mean, if I guy says ‘I like to watch you struggle so you can only rely on me in the end’ RUN. Just don’t try to argue JUST RUN.

    There’s a difference between Tarkan (a supportive simp who wants to win his wife’s heart WHILE RESPECTING HER) and Hamill a dude who was bored of his ‘perfect life’ and found a new toy to play. He doesn’t like her, he’s obsessing over her because he can’t understand why a woman like Aristine is next to a good-for-nothing like Tarkan. And even after meeting him she still doesn’t like him ??????

    HoW cAn ThAt Be I’m ThE nExT kInG mY mOmMy SaYs So~~~~


    1. It’s the best explanation! I completely agree with you!
      Aristine is just like a trophy or a medal after competition for Hamil. When he gets what he wants, she stops to be interesting for him.
      On another way, Tarkan supports his wife and loves without harmful (!!!) manipulation
      So girls, be aware of Hamil’s red flags, please

  9. “I never planned of accusing the Princess as the poisoner in the first place. But because of that wench, look at this entire mess.”

    B*tch please you had planning on framing her and or Tarkan from the damn start. Dionna just happily provided you with an easier route than you would have taken otherwise.

  10. Wow, first, dionna in prison is the best feeling ever, the little queen faction wants to kill her for sure, her family and others person’s tell her “fuck off”, now I’m practically sure she’s gonna die, at least someone like the shit of rineh’s father wants to shove his spone in the future(hope no)
    Second, I couldn’t imagine all this punishment for the queen, I can’t believe (yet) all the projects, the people and the position she lost in least of… one day?, but it’s incredibly satisfying, she really shit it this time
    Third. Buddy, hamil… You’re so fucking wrong that I don’t know how to start 🙃, now you don’t see rineh with friendly eyes (or his eyes are overly friendly) so… Fuck off please 🥰, hopefully Rineh will give him the cold shoulder and that will be beautiful🖤
    Always bringing us something this entertaining, thank you so much for the update miss ruby 🖤🖤
    Ps. I don’t know what is happening but I can’t see my own coment and the site tell me is duplicated xD 😱

  11. I see, Hamil has apotential to be yandere. In another universe, maybe ill like them, but i like Tarkan more. Nothing beats an adorable himbo in love.

  12. My dear Ruby, can I make a wish? The jujub translations was translating the novel It Seems Like I Fell into a Reverse Harem Game, but it stopped at volume 3. So could this be your next project? It’s very difficult to find a reverse harem novel that is actually reverse harem. So can you translate please🙏🙏🙏🙏

  13. I can’t go to the next chapter, and I would like to know if it’s something like you haven’t updated the chapter yet or if it’s an error on my cell phone, please could you let me know as soon as possible, thanks

  14. Boa noite eu sou do Brasil também, mas enfim eu gostaria de saber se para você o próximo capítulo foi normal ou se é só o meu que não foi, você poderia me avisar se o seu também está assim?

  15. Sorry hamil,
    I don’t hate you doesn’t mean i like you.
    I hope you’re happy with being stranger

    I’ll be waiting for the next chap. Thank you for the translation💕💕

  16. I have never liked love triangle and gladly this would further affirm my dislike of it. Hamill, dude, stop being so weird? The fact that you treated her as something not above a mere ‘observation assignment’ was downright objectifying and insulting. It would have been better if you approached her as a person being curious of another person, but no, you didn’t even consider her a proper human being but a game for you to play and gain. There’s a reason why people like you remain just that, a side character, a petty antagonist. And I even wish for you to be her friend, now just get lost, breathing in the same air as you would nit benefit her in anyway.

  17. Gasp!!! He’s realizing his own feelings. This damn illegal cliffhanger 😭😭😭

    Thank you for the chapter Miss Ruby 💖

  18. I just love how people subjectively turn themselves into victims despite objectively it makes no sense. “I never imprisoned her (but I would have if nothing had stopped me).

    That’s like trying to defend yourself with that you never committed a crime because the hitman you hired was arrested.

  19. hamill and mommy need to cool it with the victim complexes. i don’t think flirting and manipulation of your SIL amount to greater “chemistry” anyways. i mean, dude literally swept back her hair? just grabs her hand to escort her while her husband’s there? kept making suggestive remarks? ignored her discomfort and obvious commitment to her husband? took full advantage of her naivety with relationships? you are not her man, you’re a creep. there is nothing attractive to me about stomping all over someone’s boundaries for your own entertainment. dude is clearly objectifying her (observations?? is she an experimental subject??) and therefore doesn’t respect her period. he could only have his lame little banter with her because he was so pushy, completely hid his identity and repeatedly lied. nothing about that is charming. who tf wants to be friends with such a disingenuous and entitled guy?? someone who is fine with you being in danger so long as they’re the one to save you does NOT have your best interest at heart. and OF COURSE he’s all me me me me in his whining and disappointment over the inevitable consequences of his own actions. 🙄 what about how disappointed rineh must have felt?? move tf on, dude, and quit acting like you can compete with her husband. on some level, he feels like he can act out on his “interest” towards aristine because he’s used to having his way his whole life while tarkan’s been unfavored. that sense of entitlement is super shitty and gross to me. generally i think it’s so lame when people’s attraction to another person stems from the fact that they’re involved with their enemy/rival/whatever like cmon… you can’t even be original with who you like? 😭
