    Description:
    Is the Royal poisonous mushroom all right?

    The prodigal son of the Royal family, once a beloved Prince of Kingdom Lechen,
    had to put down the crown in exchange for being the principle figure of an unparalleled scandal.
    The Royal mushroom,

    Björn Denyster.

    As a property to the Hardy family,
    she was scammed and destroyed,
    and thrown to be sold into the marriage market. She was

    Erna Hardy.



    Today, when she was going to be sold as a wife
    to either a drunkard or an irredeemable garbage,

    the problematic prince, Björn Denyster
    appears to be the savior.

    You’re just a token, Miss Erna.
    Don’t try to consume the poisonous mushroom.

    Or you’ll die.

    —————

    According to @Musiciati This story kinda reminds me of Ingrid, the White Deer, due to the cold to regretful ml, the development of love and relationship after marriage plot and the western-style romance. More based on the reviews they read:
    According to reviews... Erna heads from the countryside to the capital to visit her father in order to help deal with their family's debt problems and is suddenly sent to the wedding market without any knowledge. Confused, scared and frightened she meets Biern. At that first meeting, Erna sees Biern as her savior, but Biern only met with Erna due to some kind of bet made between the men who hang out with Biern...Due to the recent scandal, Biern uses Erna as a shield and takes advantage by marrying her. Thus, the crux of the story and suffering for Erna and her unrequited love.


    Here's a couple of spoilers on the plot from reviews I seen... Biern is pretty much has a trash personality (emotionless/careless) and Erna knows it but still loves him so much that she even smiles, even if she's hurt (full case of unrequited love). Anyway, Erna gets hurt multiple times due to all the secrets and lies, such as finding out about the reason Biern approached her in the first place was over some bet, and there is also some drama that occurs with Biern's ex-wife Gladys?
    So Erna miscarries due to a weakened body from all the accumulated various shocks, and what is also sad is the fact that at the same time Biern was going around shopping for things for her and the baby and didn't find out the news until returning to the mansion later...due to enduring all the hardships, Erna decides to leave for the country to be with her grandmother and demands a divorce from Biern, who refuses. Idk, what happens next, but I think they just separate and something happens that brings them back and we end with a hea.

    Edited:
    It was already spoiled in the recent comment why Biern divorced his ex-wife, in exchange his country received beneficial contracts from the country his ex-wife came from as long as he would remain silent about the ex-wife's affair. No one beside him knew about this contract and so the public thought Biern was the one who cheated. He then stepped down as crown prince and his twin Leon took over. Biern didn't mind all of this because he didn't have any feelings for his his ex-wife, and so he spent his newly divorced life on gambling and drinking while still fulfilling his responsibilities as a royal.

    His friends said he was never enthusiastic about women, and only indulged those who approached him first. As for the bet, it wasn't really a big thing. Of course Erna was hurt and confronted him when she found out post-marriage. He was sweet with Erna one day and cold the next during their marriage which hurt her, but she still loved him. When he was out buying things for her and the baby, the public could tell that the prince really loved his wife. After her miscarriage, Erna left.

    He didn't immediately go to her as he thought she would return. About a month or so passed until he decided to get her back. He still didn't know he had feelings for her as he thought he only wanted her. Even during the times he was jealous, he didn't realize his feelings. He only realized it when she had got into a train accident. He went to the scene of the accident and jumped inside the wrecked train to find her.

    While searching for her there, he recalled moments he had with Erna and on why he married her. He finally realized he joined the trivial bet because he didn't want anyone to have her. Even if he didn't win, nothing would have changed the fact that he would be the one to have her, not another man. Every incident he involved himself with Erna pre-marriage led him and her to have no choice but to marry each other, yet he realized that he was subconsciously doing all of these things on purpose so he would end up being with her. He gave out an excuse to himself at first that he just wanted a trophy wife as Erna was beautiful and doll-like, but he now he knew he was just lying to himself. Also, Biern never wanted Erna to know about the trivial bet because he wanted Erna to be stuck in her perfect view of Biern because he was somewhat aware Erna had feelings for him. When he finally found her in the hospital, he hugged her and trembled while finally saying he loves her.

    EXTRA:
    Erna made a pet name for them at the end. She was Nana and he was Bibi and Biern found that ridiculous, he even said he'd rather she call him son of b*tch :blobjoy:. They have twins (boy and girl) in the end, and they nicknamed their twins with that. Oh, and THEY DO IT A LOT throughout the novel, even did it outside... ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Because regret is stronger emotions. I've once heard a say, the dead received more flowers than the living :')

    In a sense this is true.

    So been reading this and now at chapter 155, the first few side stories and I can say this has been a roller coaster ride.

    I really like FL but the ML is a very complicated character.

    chapter 1-40 FL and ML met through FL’s debut in the social circle. Basically the FL’s father was trying to sell her in the marriage market by threatening her that he would sell the house and FL had no choice but to attend those social gatherings. FL was afraid of crowds and the marriage maker who was in charge of “marketing her” forced her on the red carpet or something which happened to be ML, the prince’s path and ML told her to “breathe”. It was the start of everything. FL became the hot topic for everyone, including ML’s group of friends who were gambling poker because she was beautiful but was put on sale. One day, ML was drunk and was carrying a gold trophy on hand near the fountains on the street and was just lying there. FL did not know who it was and tried to help him but was “attacked” by the ML as he saw her and asked her “do you really want to get sold to me” and started to almost kiss her neck (or did he really I forgot) FL was scared and used the trophy to hit him or smth and run away and randomly throwing the trophy away. On another occasion, FL was almost sexually attacked by this guy and she screamed and ML saved her even beating the guy up. Because of this, FL suffered from some negative news and the father was angry and hit her. FL didn’t appear for days. ML joined the bet in winning her. ML and FL went for a boat ride. The boat tilted over and ML saved FL. FL told ML that she would be leaving and the day which she would be leaving as she rejected ML’s previous wife’s invitation. The father was angry again and hit her again but it was ok because she wanted to run away this time, with her friend, who’s a painter and whom ML already knew as he thought she had a lover. On the day due for departure, FL was waiting in the rain for her friend who was late in the heavy rain. In the end, ML came to her, saw her face and took her in his carriage while closing the curtains when he saw the painter coming to her. FL was sick and weak also and didn’t see. He took her to his house for days. FL recovered and tried to leave, which he constantly rejected until FL received news by her painter friend that her grandmother was in the hospital and she was in the hospital when ML, who was told by his parents to marry FL, came to the hospital and with flowers in the hand, kneeled down and propose to her. FL fainted.

    FL and ML got married shortly after. Their first night happened and was difficult as FL was scared and the ML had overlapping memories with his first wife (his first wife, Gladys, was a princess from another country who married him even though she was pregnant with her first love’s child. ML did not sleep with her and left her after she cried saying sorry. ML seemed to have a trauma from his first marriage. At first when he first saw FL, he thought FL was similar to his first wife, and acted innocent even though she already had a lover) But in the end FL said she would try would fulfill her duties and ML coaxed her by saying everything was okay and it was finished even though it was only the start. It was a sweet lie. Hehe. But ML left her bedroom after dawn to sleep separately.

    ML did not visit her again and asked his nanny to hire a tutor for her to teach her about bedroom matters. FL was embarrassed and ran out to see him and told him that she knew she was ignorant about bedroom matters that was why he didn’t not visit her for days but “you can teach me” and ML was like “‘me? Teach you”? Anyway this FL is really cute I wonder how she could say such things she’s no innocent lol

    FL and ML went for honeymoon on a cruise. ML was constantly “teaching” her for days. However, FL was always alone in the day and eating alone. She was lonely as ML did not accompany her. Even when she said she wanted to see dolphins with him, ML refused. Every night, ML would leave her to sleep separately and she would hold on to him but he would just ask her to rest. Until one day she said that couples are meant to sleep together and we have to try or smth and he started sleeping with her and waking up with her. FL was really happy.

    FL was sad that their honeymoon ended without much memories outdoors.

    FL wanted to go up to this tower with him on her birthday and made him promise her (on bed to which he did) but on her birthday, ML was drunk or something and nobody remembered her birthday (actually ML was always drunk and lying in bed which she disliked). She was outside doing everything herself and decided to go to the tower by herself. But the tower was locked and it was cold at night (think it was winter) and she waited for him to come. ML went to find her and was like “it couldn’t be. She wouldn’t be there” but she really was there. FL was crying and upset and said she didn’t want to see him but the bell rang and she asked him to kiss her and he was like “but you said you didn’t want to see me” she said that she could close her eyes while kissing. Yes FL is so pure!

    FL and ML had a quarrel as FL said she didn’t want to be a doll (FL was facing constant criticism from the public as the Gladys and the ML were a beloved couple in the public’s eyes and she was always deemed to be the witch who broke them up). FL went back to her room and ML demanded her to open the door and said “just know that you would never see me again if you don’t”. FL was like then I’ll be glad and both was angry with each other and didn’t talk for days until FL experienced some stomach pain and the maid told the ML “congratulations. You are now a father” ML went to her and said “are you pregnant?” In the end FL was not pregnant. ML even kissed her on the forehead and they decided to end the childish fight. The maids bet on who would talk to who first and in the end, FL’s personal maid, who bet on FL, won as others bet on the ML.

    As the days passed, FL became lonelier and lonelier as she was facing public criticism and even from ML’s sister who was the best friend of Gladys. FL also became less and less confident.
    FL was always lonely. And she kept thinking she was useless, except for bedroom matters. It was just sad at this point. She was slowly becoming a flower who was withering.

    FL and ML went back to her grandmother’s house and lived there for days. It was the best days of her marriage as she lived a sweet marriage life there until one day she remembered that she was living in the shadow of Gladys and was really upset again.

    When returned back home, one day FL had to attend a picnic/social gathering again and FL, who was constantly sleepy these days, started to fall asleep and others were criticizing her again. ML brought her separately to a place to rest and they lied down and she fell asleep. ML went to talk to his servant away from her and she woke up and passed by ML’s friends who were saying how ML got his wife through winning the bet. ML joined them and was naturally mixing with them. FL couldn’t watch and ran away. Painter friend saw her and helped her back as ML was trying to find her after noticing she was gone. ML punched the painter friend out of the blue (but because he was just jealous and possesive). FL was not feeling well due to nausea and pain and she collapsed. ML carried her in the arms. FL was pregnant.

    ML said to her “heard that you are pregnant” “rest”. And left her. This indifferent attitude hurt her a lot as she thought he was not happy. But actually it was because at the time her father was found scamming people using her name and ML was trying to resolve the issue. This all happened when she was pregnant and the public was criticizing her again saying she was using her child as a shield to keep her position.

    FL knew of that and talked to ML that she knew why he married her and it was because of the bet. She said since she had no use anymore as a shield for him she could divorce. ML was angry at the word divorce and told her what did she suffer from that bet and if it wasn’t for him, she would have been sold to some trash who was dying and instead, wasn’t it lucky for her? Or was it because of her friend? Because she became his trophy on his board that she regretted she couldn’t run away with her friend? FL was like that’s not what it is we are just friends! ML was like friends. Only you thought that way. And that it was a crime to be so oblivious.
    He then said if divorce, she would have to leave the child her could she do that? He knew she couldn’t. And FL was like but that not what happened before in his first marriage (he completely abandoned both Gladys and her child and she didn’t know the child was not his). ML did not explain anything and said “that girl’s a princess. Do you think she’s the same as you who lived in a countryside?” And that he would not allow his child to live in the rural area and that the reason he married her was because she was quiet, harmless and beautiful and that she was a woman who would allow him to enjoy without going against his life, like the flower that she made all the time and that was why he paid off her debts and incurred a huge deficit. He told her not to think about anything and keep her position and take care of her child as “that’s your duty” Actually he just wanted to keep her by his side idk why he had to say such mean things to his pregnant wife (just because he was jealous of the painter again)!!

    FL was suffering a lot from morning sickness and pain and ML happened to be away for 1 week settling FL’s father matters. Also, that was only the time when FL found out through the news that actually Glady’s child was not ML’s child. But he never told her and she suffered criticism from the public and he was there to see it first hand. He even said when she asked to divorce that he helped her by preventing marriage to someone who was old and dying and that she should expect to live in the shadows of Gladys. On the day ML made the FL’s father promise to never find her again and cut him off as a father by insulating her, he went home and wanted to hug her to relieve his desires. FL at first refused because the doctor said she couldn’t. FL also wanted to hear from him about Gladys and the child but ML was like “next time” ML was like there were only 3 days left and FL then accepted and he hugged her.

    The next day, FL was suffering from extreme pain and had blood and was desperately crying and looking for him. It was sad that throughout the novel, she was alway waiting for him. ML was outside at a department store, buying gifts for his child and for her as well. There was a commotion around him as people are saying that the prince loves his wife. He decided to tell her honestly that day about Gladys and the child. However when he came back, he was told she miscarried and it was a sight with blood and everything and he asked the servants to clean up. His inner monologue was like the child was gone but Erna was safe (FL)

    The thing about this novel is that the writer’s writing is so beautiful that it is a waste to not read it. Fully recommend this novel.

    After FL’s miscarriage, FL asked for ML’s permission to stayed in the guest bedroom and for one month, she was doing everything by going for her usual morning walks and sitting at the same table with ML at least once a day talking about this and that but nothing memorable. She was just very polite and monotonous. Until one day during a meal ML said that her parrot-like answer was getting boring. ML then said that a new bed would be coming (that old bed was the bloody bed she remembered cos of her miscarriage). She was like ‘I…’ and ML was why do you still need more time? Exactly until when? FL couldn’t give an answer and ML told her to move back when the new bed arrives and to move back by that week otherwise he would do that and even reminded her of what she said that a married couple should share the same bed even if they are uncomfortable. FL had a lot of inner dialogue but only nodded and only then was ML satisfied. However FL got really pale (she was still scarred from all the recent events). FL went to visit ML’s grandmother and ML appeared too unexpectedly. On the way back home in the carriage, ML explained the incident about the divorce with Gladys and how it was a secret between 2 countries in exchange for a huge national interest. FL said but you saw how difficult it was for me from up close and our child… if it was not revealed like this then our child would have been living in the shadows of Princess Gladys and her child, like me. ML said I suppose so. But even so I would have compensated you and my child adequately in a different way. ML then said anyway it’s all resolved now. If you need more explanation no matter how much.. FL said like you said everything is resolved. I’m fine. Really so please… don’t do that. And she forced herself to smile.

    The promised day to move back in was arriving and FL couldn’t breathe well as she was anxious about moving back in with ML. That day FL sent ML off like usual and ML asked if she packed up and she answered ah… yes and she forced a smile again. ML called her name impulsively as he was leaving on the carriage and looked back too until she became a dot. That night, Erna was waiting dressed up waiting for ML to come back as she knew that a wife has a duty to entertain her husband in the bedroom. ML was outside drinking with his friends while she was waiting for him. FL slept and woke up and thought about the baby and how ML ordered to clean up everything relating to the child. How indifferent ML acted when she was pregnant and how he said nothing about the child when she miscarried as if the child never existed. Perhaps ML acted out of consideration for her. She knew that from that day onwards ML made his own efforts and remained faithful to his husband role. She knew everything. She knew but why? She cried and thought she knew and understood but why am I not okay? She thought of memories where she pretended to be okay but was in fact not okay. Her painful and scary first night and the shabby morning she woke up alone. Days when she was hated for taking Gladys’ place. A husband who didn’t give his heart. Getting tired of waiting. Getting hurt by her expectations but then again and again the shabby heart which keeps loving the ML. And all these were okay because she loved him. So she tried to love him again. Loving him was as easy and natural as breathing.

    But what can she do now? She doesn’t know how to breathe anymore.

    its not okay.

    She doesn’t love him anymore. She can’t smile for him. And there was no more child between them.

    So why and for what reason did she, who had become useless, need to keep her position?

    she thought she had to be happy for her grandmother but she was no longer confident of happy here. They were now each other’s misfortune. she threw away her lewd night gown which she was wearing and left.
