Divorce Will Be Completed in 3 Seconds - Chapter 39
The next day.
Countess Maria, who participated in the tea party, was surprised.
“What’s wrong with everyone?”
All the other ladies wore roses on their heads.
“Is this your way of showing loyalty to the Empire and His Majesty? But you have to live! It’s going to be dangerous!”
Countess Maria tried to stop the other ladies in a hurry.
She was absent from yesterday’s party. This was because her symptoms were so severe that drugs that suppress the symptoms of curse do not work on her.
Countess Maria had to avoid crowded places.
Therefore, she was one of a small number of cases in which she was not granted permission to attend the eve festival.
She had to give up her title not only to her parents, but also as the Countess of Maria.
For Countess Maria, roses were an object of love and hatred. It was like a dream that she couldn’t reach no matter how much she tried to reach out.
Fortunately, only a few ladies were cursed by roses.
‘This was the only hobby I could have.’
But all the ladies brought roses, as if they were determined.
What the hell is this rose…………!
Just as Countess Maria was about to get angry, a noblewoman opened her mouth.
“Countess Maria. You don’t have to fret now.”
“What? What does that mean?”
“There was a rose that did not trigger any symptoms of the curse. We all brought the roses.”
I couldn’t believe it even though I heard it with her own two ears.
A lady held out something for the hardened Countess of Mary.
“What is this?”
“Open it for now.”
Countess Maria received the box with trembling hands and opened it.
What was contained in it was a small bouquet.
It’s a mini bouquet with just one rose gracefully wrapped.
Countess Maria could tell by instinct.
“It’s true……………. Nothing really happens.”
It was the first time she had encountered a rose so close.
In the end, the Countess Maria shed a tear.
A few days later, a meeting was in full swing at the Brighton mansion.
“Duke, I have some urgent news for you.”
“What’s going on?”
The butler, who ran with a panicked face, whispered to the Duke.
“Elizabeth, who was imprisoned, escaped.”
“There was a loud noise at dawn, so the soldiers ran and found the wall collapsed. They looked for her, but she had already disappeared.”
The Duke’s brow frowned.
Elizabeth was an ordinary human being without magic or special abilities.
“Call the knights and find her as she may have been kidnapped. She should be punished in Brighton.”
“Yes, I see.”
The meeting continued after that.
There were many agendas as Roselina recently returned and Leodor woke up from his coma.
The meeting, which ended well after the evening, naturally led to dinner.
“Have you heard the news recently?”
“You have to tell me what you’re talking about, man.”
“No, that’s what I’m talking about. There’s a rumor that there was a rebellion in the nearby kingdom.”
“Is that true? Do you think it will affect the empire?”
There was a more natural topic going on than during the meeting.
“That’s the same thing, but isn’t there a separate topic in the market these days?”
“Oh, you mean a rose that doesn’t trigger any curse symptoms?”
“Henness was the guild that put out the rose, right? There’s a saying that investors made a lot of money. I’m so jealous.”
The conversation has shifted.
“I want to see the rose, too. Are there really no symptoms of the rose curse?”
“I thought it was a false rumor at first. But it must be true.”
“I heard the price is going up every minute. That’s amazing.”
It was then.
The Duke of Brighton, who was eating silently, coughed.
“Is there a problem?”
The retainers turned their heads to the Duke in bewilderment.
Although he was detoxified, the duke still had to be managed.
But the duke looked fine.
Rather, his face was full of pride.
It was not until the Duke coughed again that they sighed.
They didn’t know until now because they were so busy having a meeting with their nose in the papers, but there was a rose stuck in the Duke’s chest.
“Roselina took care of me even though it wasn’t necessary. It’s my first time putting a rose on my body.”
“You must be really happy.”
There was a faint celebration.
But the Duke of Brighton continued, as if waiting.
“That’s not all. I’m an investor.”
“What do you mean………….”
The vassals who missed the context were embarrassed.
Then someone quietly spoke up.
“You mean you invested in Henness’ rose business?”
“Yes, Roselina gave me a sneak peek. I don’t know where she got that information.”
Only then did the retainers notice.
The Duke’s expression was blunt and the way he spoke seemed troublesome.
‘That’s bragging. He’s showing her off!’
The Duke was now showing off his daughter.
“Ro, Roselina is very wise and smart.”
Not only that, but she has a very deep heart for the Duke.”
“She’s such a good daughter. I envy you very much.”
The retainers squeezed out the praise with their cloudy eyes.
“Are you jealous? My daughter sometimes is annoyed that she comes and drinks tea with me from time to time.”
“My daughter now frowns at me for being gross when I ask for tea first. There is no daughter like this in the world.”
“A grown-up daughter comes to visit her father first. Isn’t that something that only happens in fantasy? I want to die these days because my children ignore me.”
Until the Duke’s face had a faint smile.
This was the only way to express it.
“You’ve already made this much sales?”
“It looks like it’s going to get bigger in the future. More and more aristocrats are asking me to sell them because they will pay as much as we want.”
“Nice to hear that.”
The master’s words made me feel more pleased.
“But why don’t you stop releasing the supplies now?”
“I was thinking about it, too. It’s a limited edition that people get more enthusiastic about.”
“All right, I’ll give you directions right away.”
I got along well with the master today.
“Morris, I told you not to interrupt when Lady Rosellina is here.”
The master said coldly as Morris jumped in.
It was such a cold attitude that I felt embarrassed.
“I’m sorry to have troubled you.”
“No, I’m fine. You may talk. It’s time for me to go.”
“That’s…………. No. Make yourselves comfortable.”
The master began to blow cold air at Morris.
Morris said to me in a cold sweat.
“It could be out of the scope of my own authority, but………… I think Lady Roselina should listen to this too.”
“Really? What’s going on?”
Morris rushed out and distributed a newspaper to the Master.
“It was just circulated on the street.”
A large passage on the front page
[Roselina, Brighton’s disaster, is causing trouble again?]
Underneath was my face in a big picture.
I hurriedly rolled my eyes and read the article.
[Brighton’s disaster, Roselina, the rare villainess, calmed down for a while and finally returned.
A few days ago, she appeared on the eve of the Imperial Palace and spread a rumor that a rose that does not trigger the symptoms of the curse has appeared.
People had no choice but to believe Roselina, who has severe symptoms of the curse of the rose, came out with her own hair ornament adorned with roses.
Soon Roselina’s rose began to trade at high prices.
But people have overlooked something. She’s a wicked woman who doesn’t care about human life!
Unlike Roselina’s boastful talk, the curse of the rose appeared!
The victim who believed Roselina’s words without a doubt has developed a curse symptom…………]
“Newspapers and articles are spreading at an uncontrollable pace.”
Morris’s somber voice followed.
“There are a lot of complaints about roses right now.”
I looked up and saw the master.
His eyes met as if he had read all the articles.
“It doesn’t make sense.”
“This is a Rose of Harmony, how will you get the curse of roses? It was the same as saying that I had a peach allergy after eating peach-shaped bread. This is a conspiracy.”
Someone was trying to trap me.
My eyes trembled after reading the article.
[The victim of the curse is Saintess Daisy.
Roselina, the wicked woman who dared to threaten the saintess’ life, should be punished.]
She, the original heroine, appeared.
