Divorce Will Be Completed in 3 Seconds - Chapter 2
In the original story, Roselina could not accept the divorce and runs wild. She didn’t even know that it was an act that cuts her lifeline.
‘Yes, it only leads to ruin.’
Roselina was typically a person who twisted her fate. She thought she could avoid divorce if the heroine disappeared, and so she started to bully her like crazy.
‘She was a one-dimensional villain.’
In the end, Roselina is caught trying to poison the heroine, and without anyone to take her side, she stands on the platform of execution.
‘I’m never going to do that.’
She wanted to live well as if it was the second life she has never had.
My goal was to eat well and live well after divorcing Argention safely before the original work starts.
‘In order to do that, we must first improve our family relationship.’
In this place, women’s right to make decisions was seldom recognized as their status were significantly lower than in modern society. For a woman to get a divorce, her husband had to get permission from her father as well.
‘Perhaps they won’t allow it easily.’
She went straight ahead like a bulldozer only for the things she wanted to do, and she was also at odds with her family.
It was also said that she would have been excommunicated from the family if Rozelina had not married Palesden.
‘It’s not a situation where I’m relaxed enough to have a daughter who came back from divorce.’
In fact, Brighton was one of the most prestigious families in the Empire. Until Rosalina was born.
As she grew up, the family began to fall, and Roselina was even called the “Brighton Disaster.”
‘It’s the worst condition to get permission to divorce.’
Brighton won’t welcome the eldest daughter, Roselina, back.
But she doesn’t really care.
Perhaps to give readers catharsis, the process of the failure of the original villain Roselina and Brighton family was described in detail.
‘That means, I know how not to fail. You just have to do the opposite of what Roselina did.’
Furthermore, they were guessing how the Brighton family could be revived. It was valuable information held only by me who read the original.
‘I can negotiate with the Duke of Brighton with this.’
While organizing my thoughts, I felt the carriage slowing down.
Soon, I heard a polite knock on the window of the carriage.
“From here on out, it’s the Duke of Brighton’s mansion. If you want to visit, tell me your name………… Huk.”
Without hesitation, when I removed the curtain and showed my face, a young-faced knight breathed in.
“Pe, Duchess of Palesdon, what brings you here….?”
Rumors have not yet circulated that I will divorce.
I just corrected my name to let you know that I would return to Brighton, but the driver was too scared.
“I, I have a wife and children. Please spare my life…”
‘He’s going to cry like that.’
How notorious Roselina must have been for them to be so nervous?
As if no further confirmation was needed, the carriage soon departed again. And after a long run, I was able to get off the garden.
“Welcome to Brighton’s mansion. I’m…… Duchess of Palesdon?”
“Long time no see, butler.”
The polite butler’s mouth twisted and did not move. In Roselina’s memory, he always kept a poker face.
‘I guess you really don’t like me coming.’
To the point where he, a professional, can’t properly manage his facial expression.
I took the lead because I didn’t want to be guided by someone who didn’t like me.
“Is the duke in the office?”
“………Yes, that’s right.”
The butler shut up as if he didn’t want to talk more. Even a single leaf of a tree planted in the garden showed reluctance to Roselina.
Her husband divorces her and her family does not welcome her.
‘It’s the worst.’
But I didn’t mind.
‘It won’t get any worse here.’
There was no need to worry because only good things would happen from now on. I raised my head like Roselina, who was not discouraged in any way.
First, I came into the office, but the air was freezing.
Duke Brighton knew I had come in, but he didn’t even look my way.
‘Even like this?’
She couldn’t help but stand upright as she floundered and sat down on the sofa reserved for his guests.
‘I can’t do it. Because a thirsty man must dig a well.’
“..……. Long time no see.”
Perhaps because I was nervous, my voice popped out. Somehow, it sounded like a quarrel, so it seemed more like Roselina.
“What brings you here?”
Duke Brighton said without looking at me. Standing in front of the window, his back looked solid without any room to squeeze in.
I suddenly brought up the main topic because I thought it would be useless to talk in circles.
“I want to get permission to divorce.”
Duke Brighton, who seemed indifferent, turned around and stared at me.
‘Heuk…. How can a man be so handsome?’
He was an ascetic handsome man who passed every strand of hair without being disturbed. Even if he was Roselina’s eldest brother, he looked so young that she could believe it. And perhaps because it was originally a family of scholars, it also exuded an intellectual atmosphere.
“What did you just say?”
His stubborn expression and determined voice alone read his straightforward personality. With great will, the Duke of Brighton will not be able to carry out.
‘I’m must be strong too.’
Facing him with a frown on his forehead, he stared straight into the green eyes.
“I ask you to approve my divorce.”
For a while, only silence lingered in the office.
It wasn’t long before Duke Brighton burst into laughter as if he were dumbfounded.
“…..You’re out of your mind.”
There was a blazing flame over his light green eyes. It wasn’t that I didn’t understand that feeling.
‘If I get married, I won’t come back to this damn place. If you allow me to marry, I will disappear for the rest of my life!’
After saying that, the daughter, who ran away from home, came back after three years and is asking for a divorce.
‘Even I will be outraged.’
The Duke of Brighton clenched and opened his fist. It was an action full of anger.
His voice calling out my name was very quiet.
“You swore that you would not harm the family any more if I allowed you to get married.”
“I expected you to change, maybe. That’s why my heart was shaken too.”
The Duke of Brighton’s eyes sank low.
“But that night, you stole my seal, stamped it on the marriage license and disappeared.”
“After that, you acted arbitrarily and constantly talked to people.”
“But now, you’re going to get a divorce? I can’t promise that you won’t harm the family any more than this.” In fact, there was nothing wrong with what the Duke of Brighton said.
However, I couldn’t just keep my mouth shut like this.
“I know that, too. That’s why I didn’t come here to ask for a favor.”
“You won’t believe me, of course. But…..”
As if to judge my intentions, the Duke of Brighton’s eyes became thinner.
“I’d like to ask the duke for a deal. If you give me permission to divorce, I’ll revive Brighton. More than the shining days before.”
“I will bring Brighton’s honor back to the family.”
Duke Brighton kicked his tongue.
“How can I believe that?”
His reaction was natural.
As I raised my head, I could see the Duke and the wall where he was standing at a glance. Brighton’s seal engraved on top of it.
“I swear by Brighton, which is greener than anything else.”
When referring to the green leaves to honor the leaf fairy, the Duke’s eyes grew bigger. At the same time, I suddenly felt it.
Roselina is back.
‘Is it better than I thought?’
This was an appreciation of the days she spent in Brighton for the past few days.
People in Brighton did not like Roselina. Rather, they were busy being afraid, so they didn’t stop whatever she did.
No one even wakes her up saying that she had to wake up early in the morning even if she slept too long.
The bed was so soft that she fell asleep just by lying down. So naturally, she slept longer, and maybe because of that, her back was stiff.
“Hmm. It’s stiff.”
I was just muttering to myself, but the maid responded immediately.
“I’ll prepare you a bath with oil that’s good for fatigue recovery.” She stepped back without giving me time to answer.
They don’t have to prepare that much.
I’m going to say it’s okay, but the bath was ready before I knew it. I thought it would be more troublesome to refuse, so I quietly entered the bathtub.
When I went into the warm water, I couldn’t help but exclaim.
“It’s a good scent for recovering from fatigue by mixing rosemary, marjoram, lavender and eucalyptus.”
As explained, I felt like I was warming up, but the maid suddenly knelt down and banged her head on the floor.
“Ple- Please forgive me!”
‘What? What’s wrong with her?’
