Divorce Will Be Completed in 3 Seconds - Chapter 3
“If you let me know what I did wrong, I’ll correct it right away. So please relieve your anger.”
She was almost sobbing. It seemed that she thought I was angry.
‘What are you looking at?’
I stared at my face reflected on the water.
Round pink eyes, wavy long, rich pink hair were seen. She was a cute puppy-like beauty who looked round and gentle.
‘I can’t believe I’m a villain with this face.’
It was more of a waste of talent.
Anyway, there was no sign of anger anywhere on my face. The maid seemed to have been frightened by Roselina’s notoriety.
“Never mind. Get out of here.”
“Thank you, thank you!”
I thought it would be better to stay away, so I sent out the maid. I was going to organize my thoughts by myself anyway.
“Today is the day.”
The day I can save Roselina’s brother, Leodor.
On the day she heard about divorce from Argention, she tries to summon the devil through her blood. Perhaps because of Brighton’s blood of being protected by a fairy, Roselina succeeded in summoning something anyway.
- What would you choose between helping your brother and getting the attention of Duke Palesdon?
The evil spirit summoned by Roselina always presented two prophecies. The same was true of the day he was first summoned.
Roselina chose the latter without hesitation.
Anyway, she had been ordered to stay away from Leodor for some reason.
- Burn the auction house on Leodor’s birthday, and the Duke, who took lightly of you, who was troubled by an accident on the land, will pay attention.
Roselina, who believed in the spirit’s words, hides in Brighton’s territory and sets off a big fire.
Fortunately, no one died, but when all the auction items were burned, the spirit who reappeared laughed and laughed at Roselina.
You idiot! You could had fed the tears of the wind from today’s auction to your brother, you could have bought it, but you burned it with your own hands!
“Leodor Brighton will soon lose his life!”
And he disappeared behind Roselina, who’s frustrated. Spirits often appeared after that, putting Roselina at a crossroads of choice and pulling her into a swamp of despair.
‘I just need to do the opposite.’
Today was Leodor’s birthday.
I was going to go to the auction house and win a bid for tears of hope so I could save him.
‘Did Leodor say he was always lying on his bed?’
Brighton fell into ruin faster because its successor, Leodor, is dead.
As soon as she got up from the bathtub, the maids washed and dressed her. There was no need to lift a finger.
‘It’s so comfortable.’ It was a moment when the need to lead this life was more emphasized.
At that time, a maid approached me hastily.
“Uh… A letter has arrived.”
Who is it? Roselina had few friends because of her temper. I can’t believe a letter came to her.
The sender was even more surprising.
‘The Duke of Palesdon wrote a letter?’
Why? I have nothing more to say with him.
When I opened the letter with a paper knife, thin and stiff paper fell to the floor.
“It’s a check!”
As soon as I checked the amount, my eyes widened. I hurriedly picked up a check that fell on the floor.
‘A million gold?’
It’s 10 billion won.
My mouth opened wide. Why did he send this?
When I looked at the envelope again, a short memo was enclosed.
<We send you a check equivalent to 2 of the promised amount as a down payment. I hope that there will be no change your decision. Argention Palesdon.>
Duke Palesdon seemed to be trying to finalize the divorce before I changed my mind. He was so serious about divorce that even this short memo was notarized.
‘I like it.’
Having reached 10 billion won, I was very motivated. I had a good feeling that everything was going to be all right.
Duke Brighton was lost in thought.
Days have passed since Roselina, who suddenly came, declared her divorce.
‘You’re going to get divorced?’
But I still couldn’t believe it. He knew his sister well.
Roselina was madly obsessed with the Duke of Palesdon.
It wasn’t love. I couldn’t call the destructive feeling of running like a boon moth because she just wanted to own the other person love.
Since childhood, Rosellina has tried to get whatever she wants. The same was true of the Duke of Palesdon. There was no way she would give up this easily.
‘It’s been about four years.’
Palesdon’s name came out of Roselina’s mouth, who returned home with a sweet face.
“I brought a tea, Duke.”
The butler put a teacup in front of the thoughtful Duke of Brighton. As he had worked for the Brighton family all his life, he would sometimes notice the duke’s intentions.
“Is it because of the Duchess of Palesdon?”
“…That’s right. Your eyes can’t be fooled.”
The Duke of Brighton was lost in thought again after taking a sip of tea. Roselina’s fickle personality made her unable to keep her words.
The face of the man, who was always fierce and sharp, harbored determination. And he kept a full watch on the trends of Roselina, and she was surprisingly quiet. She is locked in her room and never comes out.
‘Did you really come to your senses?’
It might be a change in the child who have brought trouble all their lives.
As soon as the Duke of Brighton was about to become a little soft, an urgent knock was heard.
“What’s going on?”
It was the maid in charge of Roselina’s reports that entered the office.
“Roselina is confronting Madame Elizabeth.”
“Those two? What’s the reason?”
“Lady Roselina, who came back from going out, came into the young master’s room….”
Duke Brighton hit the desk hard.
He asked back as if he couldn’t believe what he heard.
“Who’s going into whose room?”
“Lady Roselina, Duke.”
Duke Brighton jumped up from his seat, and the butler, who was guarding nearby, closed his eyes.
He was the eldest son of the Duke of Brighton.
However, he had never shown his face to the public because he was suffering from an incurable disease. It was like the paradox of the Duke of Brighton because he didn’t know when he would die.
“You’re touching Leodor, not anyone else?”
In fact, there was a secret that people of the Brighton family were shushing.
Leodor Brighton was not suffering from an incurable disease. He was under a terrible curse caused by Roselina. This was the first disaster she brought to Brighton.
Duke Brighton took a stride.
He felt foolish for trusting his sister even for a moment. Even though he was betrayed so much, it was his foolishness that he could not completely erase his affection for his daughter.
It is said that there were no fingers that didn’t hurt because he bit ten fingers, but he was a particularly affectionate child.
A long time ago, Brighton lost two precious things. Beatrice, his first wife, and the protection of a fairy, and it was because of the young Roselina.
Inside the Brighton mansion, there was a garden that only the Brighton family could enter. At the center of it was a fairy tree that protected Brighton for generations.
The moment young Roselina broke the branch, the angry fairy took the protection and cursed instead.
– You, foolish child, will fall into a deep sleep until you know your sins.
It was Beatrice and Leodor who blocked the curse pouring on Roselina with their bodies.
Perhaps because of the shock of receiving the curse instead, early labor began and she died with a baby in her stomach during childbirth. Leodor also collapsed and failed to regain consciousness.
‘It’s a miracle that I didn’t lose my life even though I was cursed by a fairy.’
All of this came from the testimony of Elizabeth, then Beatrice’s maid and now the Duchess of Brighton.
And today… It was the day Leodor celebrated his birthday. Why did Roselina visit him today?
