Divorce Will Be Completed in 3 Seconds - Chapter 20
Leodor was soundly asleep.
‘He’s always been like this except that time right after taking the Tears of the Wind.’
Tears of the Wind was a purification item.
‘What was purified?’
At that time, I thought it briefly purified the curse, but now I couldn’t be sure of it.
Maybe he was addicted to something else.
The unconscious Leodor must be receiving something like a drug.
“He’s running out of medicine.”
Elizabeth skillfully replenished it with a new drug.
“Do you do it yourself?”
“I learned from time to time in order to be able to take care of Leodor myself.”
What do you mean a mother who takes care of her son by doing what a doctor usually does?
‘It’s too suspicious.’
I found something and my eyes lit up.
‘I think I’ll need more purification items.’
Something more powerful.
So the answer I found was this.
“Will it really work?”
Purification items are popular anywhere and are difficult to obtain.
‘I have no choice but to do it.”
I sat with my legs crossed on the bed and stared at the white egg.
“This is able to purify?”
It’s a rather large egg if you look closely.
“But it’s information from the master, so I can believe it.”
I remembered the conversation I had with him earlier.
“You’re asking for a difficult deal, Lady Roselina.”
As soon as she put down a pocket full of mana stones, the master said.
“You still have a good sense. That’s right. I want a purification item like the Tears of the Wind.”
“This deal will be difficult. I’m also looking for it.”
It was a soft but firm rejection.
Suddenly, I remembered his past that I had read in the original.
‘The Continental War left him an aftereffect.’
The master had to suffer from constant pain. That’s why he needed the tears of the wind.
“Rather, I was going to ask for a deal from my side. I know you won’t accept it.”
“What do you mean?”
“Didn’t you get the fairy’s token?”
“You’ve done a good job in finding out the internal situation of someone else’s family.”
The mouth under the mask was fascinatingly curved.
It’s not a compliment.
“Why would I give you a family heirloom? “
“I guess so.”
The master gave no further information.
But she got everything she needed.
I will be able to purify with the fairy’s token.
To be exact, it means that beings who can purify will be summoned.
‘This might help Leodor.’
I organized my thoughts and tapped the notification window around the fairy’s token.
Soon, letters popped up in the air.
[Do you want to hatch <Fairy’s Token>? When hatching, you can randomly wake up the an ancient existence]
‘Do I just have to wait?’
I pressed Accept, and the notification came to me again.
[To awaken ancient beings using <Fairy’s Token>, we need a medium connected to ancient times.]
I thought about it for a while, but this was also not difficult.
‘The Mana Stone itself was created by the power of an ancient witch.’
Just in time, she prepared a lot of mana stones to deal with the master.
The entire pouch containing the mana stones was brought in front of the egg.
[The conditions have been confirmed]
[Use <Fairy’s Token> to wake up the ancient being!]
Light emanated from the egg and the mana stone disappeared as if it were melting.
Soon, gold appeared in the egg.
A fog slowly came out through the cracks and blocked the view.
As the fog gradually went away, the silhouette of an ancient existence appeared.
“Please. I hope everything goes well.”
The first thing he said to me.
– “Why did you come to me now? I’ve been waiting for you all this whole time.”
‘What? Suddenly? We’ve never even met before.’
It was a typical line from an obsessed male protagonist.
“Yeah. I don’t buy it. I don’t believe it.”
– “How much am I?”
I stared at the figure that is a little larger than my palm.
The image of a girl as white as a cloud.
‘It looks exactly like the evil spirit depicted in the original work.’
I’m doomed. Why was that spirit summoned?
The reason why the evil spirit welcomes me was obvious.
Like the original Roselina, it is trying to make me a pushover!
“Even if you seduce me with sweet words, I don’t believe you. All I believe in is money.”
I should never believe what the spirit says.
Because she can’t run toward destruction like Roselina.
I still vividly remembered what the evil spirit had done to Roselina.
– “It’s going to be different this time. Everything will work out just fine. Listen to me.”
– “Nothing went as you said. How can I trust you?”
When Roselina, who had lost everything, was in despair, the spirit appeared again.
– “Roselina. Look around you. Who is there? There’s no one. Except for me.
I can’t thank myself for being by your side. Do you doubt me? This is why people leave you.”
The spirit consoled and gaslighted Roselina, who was cornered, by repeatedly pushing her.
– “Give Daisy poison. If she disappears, you’ll have everything.”
– “That’s right. Trust me. I’m the only one who gives you advice anyway, right?”
Eventually, however, Daisy’s assassination attempt fails, and Roselina is imprisoned.
The night before the execution, the spirit suddenly appears in front of Roselina, who is in sorrow.
“I listened to you and everything was ruined. I’m going to die tomorrow. I’m going to die!”
– “That’s great.”
– “You don’t know how long I’ve been waiting for this moment. You don’t know how much I longed for you to be very miserable. Die in the pit of despair!”
The spirit laughed at Roselina for a long time, cursed her, and disappeared.
In the original, the spirit was a symbol of cider, but it was a death flag for me.
‘So I should never trust the spirit.’
As soon as I made up my mind, a notification came to mind.
[Ancient beings fall asleep again after a certain period of time]
[The remaining time – 9 days 23:59:59:59]
It was a relief.
‘Let’s hold out for 10 days.’
If she doesn’t react, she’ll be able to get rid of it quickly.
However, this time, my expectations did not match.
– “Roselina, are you not going to talk to me again today?”
The spirit followed me around all day as if there was nothing else to do.
– “Roselina. You promised to play with me forever.”
‘When did I do that?’
It was quite funny to see how it pretends to know when it saw me.
– “Ah! I fell down!”
– “Sad. My knee is scratched. What should I do? I hope I get better soon. Or I’ll have to live with this wound for the rest of my life.”
As I kept ignoring it, it pulled a ridiculous scenario.
– “Oh! Blood is dripping! Oh no! I’m going to die of excessive bleeding! A spirit flying in the sky falls over something and dies of excessive bleeding.”
It was a ridiculous exaggeration.
‘It’s not worth dealing with.’
Unknowingly, I looked at the hair that fell behind my shoulders.
Meanwhile, it was never her intention to glimpse at the spirit.
I clicked my tongue while looking at the arms and legs of the white spirit that is devoid of even a spec of dust.
‘What bleeding? It’s clean enough to be transparent.’
The spirit was floating intact in the air.
– “Oh! You made eye contact with me! Roselina, you cut me some slack, right? You’re paying attention to me because I got hurt, right? You’re still sweet.”
‘It’s not time to lose concentration because of the spirit.’
Because on the opposite side, the duke is sitting.
It was difficult to talk to him alone, since he was always busy, so she must get even a small clue today.
“You’re hosting a banquet?”
“Yes. Mother trusted me and left it to me.”
While answering, all my nerves were focused on the Duke’s tea.
Today, his tea was dark brown.
‘What the hell is that?’
– “It’s tea made of acarotia leaves. Why is he eating that?”
The spirit muttered as if it had read my thoughts.
I almost forgot to ignore it and almost answered it.
– “You must be interested in tea.”
– “Is acarotia tea is good for health?”
– “That can’t be true. I don’t know if it’s once or twice, but in the long run, it hardens the heart. It’s fascinating to hear that it’s a tea.”
I grabbed the teacup tightly without realizing it, and the teacup overflowed a little.
‘How does the spirit know this?’
Did it just say nonsense just to catch my attention?
“Roselina. What’s wrong?”
“Oh. I’m not in a good condition these days. I guess I’m tired.”
“I heard that you have been visiting Leodor these days. You’re working hard.”
“No, of course it’s something I have to do.”
“Then, speaking of which, I’ll share this tea with you. It’s really nice when you drink it. My body feels energized and becomes rejuvenated.”
“Then I’ll take it thankfully.”
I got the tea easier than I expected, but the spirit jumped next to me.
– “Roselina. Don’t take it. Even if it seems to revitalize the body for a while, it eventually becomes poisonous. There’s no way to decipher it.”
– “If you drink even a drop of alcohol while taking acarotia tea for a long time, your heart will harden. So, don’t take it, okay? I’m begging you.”
It was a serious attitude that I had never seen before.
‘As expected, you’re suspicious.’
The more the spirit spoke, the greater her doubt grew.
The cause of the Duke’s death is not known in the original work.
‘But how did the spirit know?’
Her theory of the spirit’s dark intentions gradually grew.
‘Let’s never believe in spirits.’
It should be passed down from generation to generation as a family motto.
