Divorce Will Be Completed in 3 Seconds - Chapter 15
“I stumbled. I’m sorry.”
“You keep apologizing to me. Maybe I couldn’t have been a father you could rely on like that?”
“What? I didn’t hear you. What did you say?”
“No, it’s nothing. By the way, are you okay?”
“I’m fine. I just sprained my ankle a bit, but it’s okay.”
“What? I need to call a doctor right away.”
“It’s not necessary. I’m okay.”
Even though she was okay, the duke checked her condition over and over again.
‘Why all of a sudden? This is embarrassing.’
She coughed roughly and called the Duke’s attention.
“There’s a bigger problem than that. I think the book has slipped behind the bookshelf.”
“That’s a bigger problem than your injury…”
It sounded like the duke was saying something from behind, but she was too busy sifting through the bookshelves.
‘What is this? I thought it would be easy because there was no explanation in the original.’
At that moment, a white window appeared in front of her and a message showed.
[The hidden item <Mark of the Fairy> has been discovered. Do you want to learn it?]
[You have acquired <Fairy Token>.]
Then, a faint light came out of the gap.
“There is a light here!”
“I’ll take a look.”
As if startled, the duke stretched out his arm through the gap in the bookshelf.
Soon after, he took out a white egg.
‘Is that the token of the fairy?’
She was suspicious, so she looked up and the message again.
[Do you want to check the acquired item <Fairy Token>?]
-Item Description: A mark left by an ancient fairy. You can use the item to wake up a sleeping ancient being.
-Can be used: (1/1) times]
“It’s the fairy’s token, an heirloom that was lost a long time ago.”
When she finished reading the description, the duke spoke in an emotional voice.
“I can’t believe you found this. Great job, Rosalina. You did a wonderful job.”
“I’m glad I did something helpful for Brighton.”
“There is no need to be humble. No one will be able to disparage the achievements you have made. If there is someone who does not recognize you, bring them to me.”
When the conversation with the duke was finished, a notification popped up.
[<Authorization of the Duke of Brighton> has been confirmed.]
[Influence on the family is slightly increased.]
[You have completed the quest <You, the curse of the family, become a blessing!(1)>]
[30 Fate Energy is paid as a reward.]
[Scenario <Blessing of Brighton> will be opened as a reward.]
[<Brighton’s Blessing> questline has occurred. Would you like to confirm?]
‘Now is the main point.’
There was a reason why she had to bring the duke the fairy’s token.
“I want to take a closer look too.”
The duke meekly handed the fairy token.
The moment the fist-sized grain touched the palm of her hand.
The fairy’s token emitted an intense light.
After a while, the light faded and she was barely able to open her eyes.
And what she saw was…
There was a thin piece of gold that appeared on top of the white egg.
“Oh my god.”
The duke was speechless for a while.
She quickly turned on the notification window.
[The acquired item <Fairy’s Token> is determining the owner.]
[You have become the owner of <Fairy’s Token> during identification.]
[Becoming the owner of the Brighton heirloom increases your influence on the family.]
[10 Fate Energy is given as a reward.]
‘As expected, my prediction was correct.’
She guessed that the first person who discovered the fairy’s token will be considered as its owner.
Even just finding the Fairy’s token is meaningful.
“The fairy’s token has made you its owner.”
Soon the duke added confidence in his wet voice.
Now that the fairy’s token has made her its master, the duke will not let her remarry recklessly.
If she remarries, it would be like passing the heirloom over to another family.
“To see a miracle like this in my life. Roselina, thank you so much.”
“I’m very happy too.”
She smiled broadly with sincerity.
This ensures her minimum safety net.
4. You have reached the limit on the number of quests you can proceed
She sat down in the café and watched the weather outside the window with a smile.
Thunder and lightning bolted down, and the sky shone brightly.
‘The weather is nice today~’
Suddenly, strong rainwater slammed against the window.
‘It’s wonderful. It’s superb.’
She couldn’t control the corners of her lips at how beautiful it was.
“It is truly a gift from God.”
“What did you say just now?”
On the opposite side, Argention was meticulously examining the documents.
As soon as her fear of remarriage disappeared, she contacted him.
Argention came out as if waiting.
“I’ve checked everything.”
She replied with a smile.
There were no problems with the documents.
‘I’ve checked it several times.’
‘Finally getting a divorce!”
There is no one in the world that is happier than her right now.
She swallowed the cheers in her mouth.
‘Now, once Argention signs, it’s a divorce!”
And 40 billion won is hers too!
She grabbed her pounding heart and waited for Argention to speak.
Now, are they considered strangers?
“Roselina. You cannot divorce me.”
“Yeah. I’m sorry, what?”
“Where’s the 1 million gold check I gave you as a down payment?”
Suddenly a check for 1 million gold?
She used it all at the auction house.
Seeing her bewildered face, Argention added an explanation.
“The check is notarized proof of divorce.”
“What if I don’t have the check?”
“Like I said, we can’t get a divorce.”
Rung rung – bang!
Thunder struck again. It sounded like her heart was breaking apart.
“That’s absurd. If the two parties agree with the divorce, then it’s final. What is this coercion?”
“Really? It’s surprising that you, who made this marriage happen with a lie that you spent the night with me, came up with that word.”
‘What the hell does he mean?’
“Wouldn’t it be troublesome if you filed a divorce lawsuit on the pretext of the absence of a check? I ask for your understanding.”
She wanted to believe it was a prank, but Argention’s face was serious.
She tried to convince him a few more times, but to no avail.
“I won’t file a divorce annulment lawsuit. I promise.”
“Isn’t it futile to make promises that are just words?”
“Then why don’t you write a memorandum and have it notarized?”
“Still, there remains room for a legal battle.”
Argention was really thorough.
But, as a monster born of capitalism, she eventually succumbed.
‘What can I do? There’s 40 billion won at stake, so I’ll have to endure it.’
Let’s get the 1 million gold check back.
Fortunately, it wasn’t completely impossible.
‘Palesdon handles checks twice a year.’
Once in the first half of the year and once in the second half.
‘It’s still spring, so the check will still be in the bank.’
Before that, she has to earn 10 billion won to get the check back.
Then, A white window appeared and a message popped out.
[A new quest has occurred. Would you like to confirm?]
She checked the quest with the feeling of grasping a straw.
[Break the wheel of fate and open a new path! (1)
Divorce is the first step in shaping your destiny. Succeed in your divorce from Argention Palesden.
If you want to face a new destiny, you must pass this gate.
-Condition: Divorce from Argention
-Failure penalty: enforced fate
-Reward: 100 Fate Energy]
‘What’s the penalty for failure? Enforcement of fate?”
If her fate is referring to the original, would she be killed by obsessing over Argention?
It was the worst.
If the divorce succeeds, it is 40 billion won, and if it fails, death.
‘I’d rather refuse.’
It was then.
[You have accepted the quest.]
‘I haven’t decided yet.’
She still got a headache, and the system is causing trouble.
As if it was not enough, a message appeared again.
[Linked quest has occurred. Would you like to confirm?]
[Change fate and win money! (2)
Your path to change your destiny may be smooth or rough. Everything is up to you.
Change your destiny with great riches, change your destiny and get great riches.
-Condition: Acquire 1 million gold

As she was reading the quest, she heard Argention’s voice.
“Then let’s go.”
“Okay. I’ll see you next time with the check.”
“I hope you keep those words.”
A message appeared at the back of his face as soon as he left the seat.
[You have accepted the quest.]
After a while, at Henness Guild headquarters.
Argention looked at Rosalina with an absurd feeling.
He never dreamed that her would see her twice today.
“Are you listening, Master?”
“Yes, keep talking.”
“You look so weird today.”
It’s you that’s weird.
Argention swallowed the words that flew from the tip of his tongue.
As soon as Rosellina broke up with him, she ran into Henness.
“I brought an item that could overturn the entire empire.”
“If you do business with this, it’s going to be a huge hit. I’m sure of it.”
“So, what do you want to say?”
“Let’s work together. Master!”
She’s talking nonsense.
