The funniest part was watching the crazy Annabel slit her own wrist like a witch, she couldn’t understand how one could be so cruel even to oneself. Sad enough, she had to clean her and put on the badge on the self-inflicted wound.
The New concubine, Mercy, takes total advantage of the situation and jealous ensures. The king knew to well Annabel was absconding her duties, but Mercy had defended her.
“let the poor lady rest, I will take care of everything before our guest get here, I just need Angelica help if Annabel doesn’t mind,” mercy said calmly and sweetly.
