It all started with that stupid marriage alliance! Which occurred two generations before!
If not for it, his granddaughter would have been good.
Old king's aunt, Lila Benjamin was meant to marry Mr. Garcia's grandfather. But she was already in love with someone else. She tried to convince her parents but they didn't agree. So, she ran away with her lover.
Benjamin's felt that they were indebted at that time. So, they wrote a marriage agreement with Garcia's. But in the next two generations neither the Garcia's have females nor the Benjamins. So, the marriage agreement is postponed. And in fact, the marriage agreement is forgotten. But somehow the Garcia's remembered it..
Madame Garcia got to know about the marriage alliance accidentally. So with that, they started visiting Benjamin's home and reminded them about the Marriage agreement from time to time.
Because at that time Garcia's are already started falling into debt and they are in the path of bankruptcy. Because of Arthur's father's gambling habits. The Garcia's are going into debt. Elena got panicked when their family is ruining. Her only hope is Benjamin's. So, she started brainwashing Esther.
Esther was the main target of Garcia's from her childhood. Mrs. Garcia would meet Esther 'accidentally' and would remind her that she is Arthur's wife. She brainwashed her from her childhood to the point that Esther didn't care about her life too.
Esther is confused about her love for Arthur. It's not loving but a delusion. Her mind is fixed with the thought that she is the wife of Arthur.
Delusions are dreadful. They can make a person go crazy and insane.
Esther thought she was in love with Arthur but in truth, she is in the delusion of being in love with him. And gradually it turned into a deadly habit of hers. And due to the illusion she has, she always thought that she is Madame Garcia. When she heard Arthur is in love she was angry, sad, heartbroken, and hopeless.
Her brother, who couldn't see her like that, said to her, "Love means making sure that the person whom you love is happy. If he is happy with her, then let him be. Just because you loved him, it doesn't mean he has to love you back. It will be unfair to him and you too. Sometimes letting it go is the best thing you can do,"
Esther thought about her brother's words for a long time and made a decision. She left the country to pursue her studies. But it doesn't mean she got over the obsession she had over Arthur. After finishing her studies she returned, but the first thing she did is to know about him. But when she got to know that Arthur's girlfriend is married to someone else. She tried every way to make him hers. She was desperate for him.
She used his family against him and made him bend his head to marry her. But when Arthur agreed, Old King Benjamin denied the marriage. He said he won't allow it till his last breath.
Even though Arthur breathed a sigh of relief, Elena didn't. She doesn't want to lose the title of a rich wife. She played tricks and made her way to Arthur's father's bed. Only Esther can save their family. She cannot leave her like that.
She went to Garcia's old man and threatened him by killing herself. When he didn't budge she threatened him by saying that she will expose the whole Garcia family's dirty deeds. Old man Garcia had no choice but to do something. He went to Benjamin's old mansion to talk. But he knew the power of Benjamin's. The Old King was powerful, since his childhood. No one can go against him.
Even now, the Old Garcia couldn't get him to agree. He had no choice but to agree. Will old man Benjamin agree just because he kneeled?
He chased him away from Benjamin's mansion.
When Esther got the news, she was devastated. So, she went to the ancestral hall and kneeled there for days.
Seeing her near to the death attempt Old King has no choice but to agree.
But is it all worth it? But in her attempt of finding her true love, she lost her true self. She trampled herself into the depths of hell. She left her dignity for him.
She accepted everything for his sake. She raised his Ex's child but she didn't get the recognition.
She is a good wife. But she failed to get recognition for it too.
She is a good cook. She didn't manage to get the recognition for it too.
She secured deals for his company. But she failed to get recognition for it too.
In the end, the Old King's granddaughter is just a housekeeper, cleaner, maid, nanny, a deal closer. She is everything but a wife in that bastard's eyes.
The Old King felt his eyes burning hot.
I fell sick seriously. Even after meeting the doctor, I am not well. I hope I will get it soon and will resume the writing.
