After about half a minute or so, Lord Kenny snapped back to his senses. He looked at Monica lovingly and said, “Long time no see, my dear! How have you been all these years?”
“I’m…I’m good!” Monica bit her lips as she replied gently.
However, Monica did not look at Lord Kenny in the eyes; she seemed a little restrained.
Monica had always been grateful to Lord Kenny. If it were not for him, she would have been dead. She would not have had the chance to give birth to Ambrose as well.
However, Monica had already returned to Darryl, so she did not want to have anything to do with Lord Kenny. Darryl was also there, at the side.
“Father Emperor, Mother…”
Ambrose could not hide the joy in his heart. “We are reunited as a family! Let’s never be apart again.”
Ambrose had said that seriously; he had hoped for a beautiful future.
He was the happiest with his family.
Lord Kenny laughed in relief. He stroked Ambrose’s head and said, “That’s great. You are very mature, Ambrose. I will arrange for the two of you to move back into the palace. We will never be apart again…”
When he said the last sentence, Lord Kenny smiled and looked at Monica. “What do you think, my dear?”
Lord Kenny was not worried about having gorgeous women by his side when he became the Emperor; he could have anyone he wanted. However, he thought that Monica was the most beautiful woman in the world; no one could replace her.
Monica bit her lips. She wanted to refuse; however, she could not say it aloud when she saw Ambrose’s hopeful eyes.
Florian walked toward them quickly. He knelt and said, “Congratulations, Your Majesty! Your family has been reunited.”
When he yelled that, Florian smiled respectfully, but he was extremely nervous.
How could he forget about Ambrose and Monica? He had sent people to kill them about ten years ago.
Florian did not want to kiss anyone’s behind, but he had no choice.
Florian could only support Lord Kenny as he would be the next Emperor; he would do that for glory and earthly rewards.
“Congratulations, Your Majesty!”
Leonardo and the crowd also knelt.
‘Bunch of dogs!’
Sloan frowned when she saw Florian’s sly look; she cursed in her mind.
Lord Kenny laughed and smiled; he was in a great mood. He waved his hand and said, “My fellow officials, please get up. Pass on my decree—I will appoint Ambrose Darby as the Prince, and Monica Vaughn as the Empress, to forever—”
Someone interrupted his speech. Then, a figure stood up slowly, his face was still pale, but his eyes were full of determination.
It was Darryl!
Darryl smiled mockingly as he looked at Lord Kenny. “I am grateful that you took care of Monica for so long, but it is unreasonable to steal another man’s loved ones.”
Darryl had said that politely. He had never met Lord Kenny, but Monica said that he was a man with morals and principles.
So, when Lord Kenny and Ambrose reconciled, he did not say anything, nor did he stop them. After all, Lord Kenny had helped raise his child.
However, Lord Kenny had ignored the fact that he existed. He had wanted to keep Ambrose and Monica in the palace, and Darryl could not accept that.
Lord Kenny’s expressions darkened. He gazed at Darryl with a sneer.
At the exact moment, the crowd erupted into a heated discussion.
“What’s going on?”
“Lord Kenny and Darryl are arguing over a woman?”
“One is the Emperor, and the other the Elysium Gate’s Sect Master. Are they fighting over a woman? This is going to be interesting. But this woman is gorgeous…”
