Divorce Will Be Completed in 3 Seconds - Chapter 10
Surprisingly, Roselina could feel his presence, so she stared straight at the Argention.
Even the most prominent knights in the empire are unable to find him whenever he disappears.
Argention showed himself. He realized that Roselina was surprisingly different.
She caught his interest, which was usually just all blood and slaughter.
“You were alive. Why did you make such a fuss?”
As expected, Roselina was not surprised.
Far from that, she looked up at him as if she had been filled with satisfaction after longing for him and then replied calmly.
“Because you have to come back now.”
“I don’t know what’s that supposed to mean.”
“Still, I thought you would stop by if I were dead. Look, the chances were slim, but I succeeded. You’re standing here like this.”
A woman who dared to talk about him as if she knew him well.
Argention didn’t even feel the worth of responding to her.
As expected, he was convinced that a lot of troublesome things would happen to him in the future.
‘Should I kill her now?’
If he reaches out and grab her lightly, that slender neck will break.
However, Argention could not bear to do so.
Strangely, he couldn’t do anything even though the pink eyes sparkling toward him were unpleasant.
Instead, he decided to return to the battlefield.
The moment Argention was about to step back.
“Your insomnia got worse, right?”
Roselina came closer.
Argention tried to avoid her, but she was faster.
“It’s in a dangerous state.”
“It doesn’t matter…”
Pink eyes looking up at him from his chest. Her eyes were irritating as if she knew everything about him.
“Sleep a little bit, and then you’ll be fine.”
It has been more than a week since Argention couldn’t fall asleep.
His already sensitive nerves were at their peak due to insomnia, and all he wanted was to fall down and sleep anywhere if he had the chance.
However, that did not mean that he would fall asleep in front of Catalina’s dog.
However, he felt his eyelids getting heavier.
What the hell did she do?
Argention’s vision flickered.
A few hours later, Argention woke up in a fluffy bed, but still didn’t know what had happened to him.
All he knew was the fact that his body felt lighter.
Laying next to him was Roselina, who was sleeping.
‘Did she use an anesthetic scent?’
With this, Catalina’s plan was fulfilled.
In the future, this woman will carry Catalina on her back and claim that she slept with him and force him to marry.
Argention did not want to marry or have children.
Rather, he tried to end Palesdon by going into war.
If his blood continues, another monster will be born and suffer.
Then it’s right to kill Roselina now.
Argention glanced down at Roselina.
His body stiffened as if it were frozen. He couldn’t move at all.
Rather, he was embarrassed by Rosellina’s sleep talking and left as if he were running away.
And a while later, a letter flew from the mansion.
It was said that Roselina, who spent the night with Argention, officially became his wife.
Roselina is Catalina’s dog and will only interfere with him in the future.
So he doesn’t know what else would happen if he just accepted this handkerchief.
Even though he knows that well.
Argention couldn’t let go of the handkerchief in his arms.
He escaped from his thoughts because of the unfamiliar presence he felt from beyond.
“Who is it?”
Morris, who sensed the belated signal, left the room, understanding the situation.
Soon, Argention’s expression hardened.
Morris hasn’t returned yet, but he knew who visited his space.
‘How did she know this?’
The fact that he, the Duke of Palesdon, is the owner of the dark intelligence guild <Henness> was a top secret.
Catalina is said to be acting as Palesdon’s regent, but she doesn’t have enough information to discover this secret.
So, it was even more questionable.
How was Catalina’s dog able to come here?
Soon, the presence became so close that he could feel it just over the door.
“Master, the guest has asked to see you.”
Morris, one of the few who knew Argention’s identity, was unable to hide his embarrassment.
Argention’s red eyes was a sign.
The madness that has been passed down from generation to generation in the Palesdon family was a secret reference to monsters.
Argention also suffered from excruciating pain and felt no guilt in committing murder as his mind became closer and closer to becoming that of a monster.
So, on the day he returned, he visited Roselina.
He was going to kill her this time, but he failed again. Still, the reason was unknown.
In the end, instead of killing her, he took out a card called divorce.
“As I’ve said over and over again, it would be better for everyone to just accept the divorce.”
Contrary to expectations, Roselina accepted the divorce.
But he didn’t let his guard down.
‘I need to find out what she’s up to.’
Argention wore a white mask on a cold day.
It was a magic mask that made him look like a different person.
“Let the guest in.”
The door opened as he let out a hard voice.
As expected, abundant pink hair appeared.
“I’m here to get my handkerchief back as I said before.”
Roselina was smiling over the open door.
“In the alley closest to the statue of the first emperor, there’s an antique shop in the innermost part. Is it right?”
It was her first time, but it was not difficult to find the way because she knew the characteristics in detail.
She saw an information sheet sticking to the cracked glass door.
“I’m away due to some circumstances.” – Master Baek.
‘It’s nice to see you.’
She opened the door without hesitation.
Inside was full of dust and spider webs that sticks around the walls.
Then she saw a chessboard on the table closest to the entrance.
‘I knew it.’
She held the king between the scattered chess pieces and headed in front of the counter.
The table was engraved with a faint pattern that could not be noticed unless you looked closely.
She put the king on top of it.
“I don’t have time, so let’s get to the point first. I’m here to see the Master, so let me know right away.”
Shortly after sending a secret signal, a door opened in the air. A man opened the door and came out.
‘It really works.’
This is the headquarters of the underground intelligence guild, Henness.
The guild master here has a strong dislike to the empire, so he committed illegal acts without hesitation, and his does an excellent job with what he does.
He was the perfect partner for transactions, including the sale of mana stones.
“There’s also an excuse to come.”
The man in the alley who came to me to take the Tears of the Wind.
When she saw the pattern faintly engraved on the lower part of the white mask he wore, she noticed that the man was Hennes’ guildmaster.
“I’ll guide you to the master.”
The man signaled for a moment and then guided me into the door.
After passing through the dark space made of magic, an intact hallway appeared.
A low voice was heard from the door when they arrived.
It was a voice close to a mechanical sound, where gender and age could not be guessed.
“Let the guest in.”
‘Let’s not be discouraged. You can’t get a head start here.’
Soon, she saw the master sitting in the dark room.
A room was foggy. The man was in all black, except for the mask he is wearing.
However, she forced herself to laugh because must not look intimidated.
“I’m here to get my handkerchief back as I said then.”
Hennes was a dark information guild and was famous for being picky about requests.
So she needed an excuse to make a deal with him.
“I didn’t mean to give it to you.”
The handkerchief she gave him will be a good excuse.
She was planning to argue that it must be returned.
‘He probably threw it away.’
Hennes’ guildmaster was also famous for his mynosis.
His usual white gloves and masks were his signature appearance because he was reluctant to be in contact to others.
“A noble person has come all the way here, but it’s become difficult. I don’t have the handkerchief.”
Sure enough. The expected answer came back.
‘I knew it!’
After rejoicing inside, she began acting as if she was surprised.
“Back then, I definitely said I’d get it back, but it’s not with you? It’s the only gift I’ve ever received from my husband, so it’s more precious than gold to me. How can you do that?”
To be honest, she it’s just a handkerchief that the her maid carries around.
Everyone knew that Roselina loved Argention extremely, so the master wouldn’t doubt it.
‘Good. I’ve set the mood well.’
She exaggerated her acting, knowing the master from the original, might refuse her request even if she offers 10 boxes full of gold.
“Master would have heard about my divorce. The handkerchief was the only memory and happiness left for me.”
Master felt embarrassed in the silence.
He didn’t know that she would really come all the way here to get a handkerchief.
“I’ve done you a great disrespect. If there is anything you want, I will do it for you.”
She smiled broadly as if she had waited and said what she had prepared in advance.
“You should do business with me from now on. There are three things, for today.
“Okay, go ahead.”
I took the mana stone out of my arms and put it on the table.
“First of all, I want to trade this mana stone.”
“It’s high quality.”
The master assessed the grade of the mana stone at once.
“And I want to create a borrowed name.”
“Lastly, I want to buy a title.”
