Divorce Will Be Completed in 3 Seconds - Chapter 14
“It looks like a token from the fairy that disappeared a long time ago, how did you find it?”
“I was trying to balance myself then suddenly this came out from the bookshelf.”
“If that is true, then Young Lady is a benefactor of our family since she found the heirloom.”
Unlike Roselina, who breaks her nose even if she falls backwards, Daisy finds a treasure even after being framed.
“Why did you lose balance? Did someone push you?”
“It must have been Roselina.”
Roselina is revealed to be trying to frame Daisy, and was greatly humiliated in the process.
Besides, she was the one who exposed the heirloom to the outside because she was the cause why Daisy became the owner of the token left by the fairy.
‘Losing an heirloom while doing evil. I wouldn’t do anything stupid like that.’
If she has the fairy token, she will be able to change the mind of the fairy who has left Brighton.
‘When the fairy returns, Brighton’s legacy will return.’
It would kill two birds with one stone because she would be recognized by the Duke.
So she had to enter Beatrice’s room saying she wanted to put flowers.
‘It’s better because it’s not a real rose.’
Since it is not a fresh rose and there is no fear it would rot, it will suit the room where time seems to have stopped.
She held the Rose Harmony in her arms and pulled the string.
She couldn’t show how she summoned it, so she was thinking of making a bouquet with the help of her maid, whom she had kept.
“You called… Lady Roselina!”
“No matter how sad you are, you must not give up on your life!”
Antonia, who appeared like a bullet, was startled.
‘Give up your life?’
All she has to do is to receive alimony, eat well and live well.
“Come on, put down the roses. Come on!”
But Antonia’s face was so serious that he put the rose down on the table.
“Roselina was cursed by the rose. Unlike others, I’ve heard that a slight touch could put your life in danger.”
“Curse of the Rose?”
“Yes. That’s why I give you pills every morning to control your symptoms.”
“Oh, of course. I know, I know.”
She shook her head roughly and fell into thought.
“Is there such a thing as the Curse of the Rose?”
If she touches it, she could die immediately?
It was a setting that was not mentioned in the original.
Curse of roses in a country where roses are popular.
‘Then, if a rose that doesn’t cause the Curse of a Rose comes out, people will buy it like crazy, right?”
Suddenly, something flashed and appeared.
Leaving Antonia crying, she rolled her eyes and opened the explanation window of the Rose Harmony.
[Rose Harmony Summoned from the Unknown World
– Grade: F grade
– Item Description: A beautiful harmony that brings joy to anyone]
Bringing joy to everyone.
As she chewed her lip, she felt goosebumps all over her body in an instant.
That’s what it means?
A light knock was heard and Antonia entered.
“Lady Roselina was right.”
She handed her a handkerchief soaked in cold water.
“She didn’t believe it even though I said it wasn’t a real rose, but a Rose Harmony.”
“Did she say anything else?”
“She told me that I must report this kind of thing, and she asked for me to go with her to the Duke later.”
Antonia spoke as she clasped her swollen eyes with her handkerchief.
“She said that Lady Roselina tried to harm her servant.”
“How did you predict the maid’s behavior?”
“It just happened often.”
“I see. As expected, Lady Roselina was framed by her.”
To Antonia, it was a rough guess, but the reality was different.
After a scenario was created that could erase the stigma <Brighton’s Disaster>, she began to see strange things.
“What is that?”
The first was the maid.
Her description appeared as she blinked at the name floating above her head.
– Maid of the Duke of Brighton’s mansion
– Acquired title: Stigma]
It seemed suspicious.
As she stared intently at the message, a notification appeared.
[Would you like to use 10 Fate Energy to access information about ‘Stigma’?]“So I can use it like this.”
When she clicked OK, several white windows appeared, and notification rang in succession.
[10 Fate energy was used. Residual Fate Energy: 5]
‘For now, let’s just check the information about the stigma.’
[Stigma: A title given to those who contributed to the stigma <Brighton’s Disaster>]
So this maid has contributed to her notoriety.
‘I think I should not miss this opportunity as well.’
What would the maid think when she sees Antonia’s swollen eyes right after she went to her room?
When she asked her to get the ingredients to make a bouquet, Antonia readily agreed when she asked the her to watch Dorota’s reaction.
It was a kind of trap investigation.
But at the same time, she hoped that the maid would do nothing.
‘Because Dorota was good to me.’
Moreover, she was the Beatrice’s former nanny.
Roselina grew up seeing Dorota like her mother.
However, she was actually a person who pretends to be nice in front of her and the stabs her in the back.
‘I can’t just stand still.’
She stood facing Dorota.
“Dorota. Were you watching me?”
Dorota stared at her for a moment as she opened her eyes wide, as if in shock.
But she took care of her expression, as if she wasn’t living as the head maid for no reason.
“Surveillance. There was an emergency for the maid’s life, so I was just trying to inform the duke.”
“What do you mean?”
“Lady Roselina forced Antonia to touch the rose.”
As she pretended to be surprised, Dorota gained momentum.
“I’m not the only one who saw Antonia’s swollen eyes coming out of the Madam’s room.”
“Besides, Antonia went to find the ingredients needed to make a bouquet of roses with her reddened hands. Madam must have forced her to make a bouquet of roses!”
It was not funny to see her elated as if her own logic was perfect.
“Really? Then why is it that I’m perfectly fine?”
“You take medicine every day to prevent the symptoms of the rose’s curse.”
“The drug is only a secondary medication.”
Dorota flinched as the Duke replied, but she soon insisted again.
“It doesn’t change the fact that she forced Antonia to touch the rose anyway.”
“Is that true? Antonia was forced to touch the rose?”
“No! Lady Roselina didn’t make me do that!”
Antonia didn’t mind Dorota’s glare and continued her story.
“Rather, it was the maid who forced me to do something, Duke.”
“What do you mean?”
“Even though I refused, the maid forced me to lie that I was forced to touch the rose because of Lady Roselina.”
“Antonia! Are you planning to lie in front of the Duke?”
Antonia’s body shuddered in fear as Dorota yelled at her recklessly.
‘Thank you for being brave for me, Antonia.’
Roselina took Antonia behind her as she’s done with her task, then she stared at Dorota.
“No. You’re the one lying, Dorota.”
As she presented the bouquet of roses in full bloom, Dorota staggered back.
“Look closely. This is not a rose.”
“Don’t say nonsense!”
“This is a Rose Harmony. It’s a fake rose modeled after a rose.”
“There can be no such thing.”
“Why are you so sure?”
Then she took a step closer to Dorota.
She pulled a flower from the bouquet and held it with her bare hands.
“Dorota. Can’t you believe what I’m saying even after seeing this?”
“As you said, let’s say this is a real rose. Then didn’t you think that if I touched a rose, I would die?”
“Is that impossible? Regardless whether others dies or not, Lady Roselina will survive whatever the means!”
“You’re not making any sense. I’m going to put you on trial for insulting the nobility.”
At that moment, the Duke stepped out in front of Roselina.
“You dare say that to my daughter?”
Roselina was bewildered by the vulgar remarks that were not like a Duke’s, but a white window and message appeared.
Dorota was perplexed, but Roselina was even more surprised.
[The Duke of Brighton’s favorability has increased by 10%.]
[Current Duke of Brighton’s favorability: -60%]
‘Why did the favorability rise again?’
“Even if you pay back the grace with your enemy, it’s still greasy. Put this woman in the dungeon right now.”
“Duke! How could you do this to me? That Madam Beatrice died because of Lady Roselina!”
Everyone stopped moving as if those words were enchanted.
Even she stopped breathing and looked at the duke, but he shot back at Dorota without hesitation.
“Can’t you shut up that mouth right now? Do you think your mouth was given to you to talk about nonsense like that?”
“I know the Duke thought that way too! Isn’t Madam Beatrice pitiful?”
“I won’t allow even a drop of water given to you for three days. If you tease your snout for more than this, I’ll see to it that your neck falls to the floor.”
“That is the last courtesy I can show you, who raised Beatrice.”
Dorota was dragged helplessly by the knights. Soon, the Duke’s gaze reached her.
‘There was a passing description that said he was a player when he was young. It is said that he changed when he met Beatrice.’
Perhaps that’s why the momentum was no joke.
She’s bewildered by the blazing eyes that seem to spark.
“I’m sorry to to have you hear something like this. It’s all my fault.”
“There is nowhere in this mansion that you cannot go, Roselina.”
The duke, who had been acting like a gangster earlier, returned to his usual well-mannered appearance and apologized.
He heard she was arguing with the knight to get into Beatrice’s room.
“Since we’re talking about it, would you like me to go to your mother’s room with you? If you give the flowers together with your father, your mother will like it even more.”
“Alright, let’s do that.”
“Antonia. Please wait here for a moment.”
“Yes. Lady Roselina.”
The Duke opened the door first and entered the room.
‘It’s been well managed.’
The interior was neat even after ten years without an owner.
And what caught her eye was the bookshelf that stretched along the wall from the entrance.
“Beatrice was an avid reader.”
It was one of the factors that caused Rosalina to be criticized as she grew up that way.
‘I think it’s around here.’
When she looked closely, she could see a small hole in the floor.
In the original story, Daisy almost tripped her foot here while staggering.
She imitated her and stumbled as she stretched out her arms.
‘It is said to be an exceptionally thick book. Ah, I found it!’
The duke rushed to push the book back as if it were a mistake.
