Divorce Will Be Completed in 3 Seconds - Chapter 6
When the man who was left alone took off his mask, dark hair and red eyes were revealed.
‘I didn’t think of this.’
The man, Argention, muttered to himself.
I can’t believe Roselina left him behind. Twice.
‘You don’t seem desperate.’
I’m not desperate?
Drops of sweat that flowed again through Argention’s face. The crazy pain in his body did not subside easily even after a long time.
Argention clenched his teeth.
The Tears of the Wind was an item he had been looking for so long. It was the only hope to alleviate the terrible madness he was experiencing.
After the war, he did not return immediately but instead started searching for it, he found a lead, a clue he was barely able to discover, and it was traced into the Brighton’s auction house. He didn’t expect to see Roselina there.
After having not seen her in a few days, she looked different from his memory.
Perhaps because she wasn’t able to recognize him due to the effect of the magic mask, she seemed to regard me purely as a competitor.
But it was strangely pleasant.
Roselina’s 1 million gold must be the amount I sent.
I can also guess where she would use the Tears of the Wind.
It’s to treat Leodor Brighton, Brighton’s eldest son, who is said to be lying in a separate house.
‘Was their relationship that good for her to use 1 million gold?’
Soon, Argention stopped thinking about it. Because it wasn’t his concern.
Anyway, if he bet 1.1 million gold, he could’ve gotten the Tears of the Wind right away. It was said that it could free him from this damn pain for a while. He could do anything for that.
‘Why are you hesitating?’
Argention looked down at his hand.
“Now, 1 million gold has come out. We’re going to bid three times in the soon. If there is no higher price in the meantime, the lady over there will take the Tears of the Wind!”
The auctioneer’s loud voice rang in the hall.
The auction was ending. It was clear that if he doesn’t write the amount on the paddle right now, he’ll miss the Tears of the Wind that he’s been so eager for. Nevertheless, he couldn’t even lift a finger.
Feeling her gaze on me, Argention raised his head.
And the moment he saw those pink eyes burning with pure passion, he forgot to breathe for an instant and time and space stopped.
“From now on, I’ll ask you three times. 100, 100…… 100!”
It was as if the auctioneer’s voice could be heard from afar. When I realized that, the auction had already ended.
Argention missed the Tears of the Wind right in front of his eyes.
‘Did I lose my mind again?’
Argention’s eyes settled. Madness sometimes took away his sanity, which was a very dangerous sign. He had to somehow obtain the Tears of the Wind. If he doesn’t, he’ll turn into a monster that has lost its sanity again.
‘It won’t be hard.’
Fortunately, it was Roselina who took over the Tears of the Wind now. A woman who was so obsessed with him but agreed to divorce for 5 million gold. In fact, she would have been more interested in his wealth and power rather than himself.
Argention was convinced that Roselina would be easy to handle.
‘You can ask for 5 million gold this time, too.’
Then the Tears of the Wind will be in his hands.
Was that a complacent judgment?
Argention could not say anything in front of Roselina.
Since when did I become a honey-eating mute in front of her? I can’t save the Tears of the Wind by saying nice words.
It was then.
The pain began to rise again.
Argention clenched his teeth. Otherwise, he thought a scream would pop out right away.
‘The cycle has gotten shorter.’
At least the remaining of his reason urged him to hide away from where he was immediately. It was then,
He couldn’t move at all as if he was under a spell.
And what was offered to Argention is…
“It’s a reward for giving up.”
It was a handkerchief with Roselina’s name on it.
His reason shouted not to accept that.
Roselina was a sophisticated woman. He didn’t know what kind of scheme she’s hiding. Nevertheless, he reached out before realizing it.
As soon as he touched the soft fabric, relief spread from his fingertips.
‘I don’t know.’
He felt like the pain that had been particularly severe over the past few days was subsiding.
A handkerchief that resembles its owner and has a light pink color.
Argention called out the name of the person who had already left the place. It was a strange feeling.
Soon after, the emotions that follow………….
Argention laughed out loud. That can’t be true.
However, he could hardly calm down.
Instead, he held onto the handkerchief, the only thing that was left in his hand. It smelled like Roselina.
“There’s nothing you want?”
“I’ve only done what I had to do as Leodor’s sister. So, there’s no reason to get compensation.”
Duke Brighton looked at his daughter in disbelief. Is there really nothing Roselina, who was the embodiment of greed, wants?
“Roselina, you can be honest. You’ve done a great job. If there’s anything you want, I’ll give it all to you.”
“Just in case…”
“I know you’re busy, but please spend more time with Leodor. Then there might be a way.”
‘There it was.’
The duke finally admitted. Roselina has really changed.
She did not bully the servants of the mansion, gatecrashed into any party, or ruin the atmosphere of the family.
‘Far from that, she even saved Leodor.’
Nevertheless, she doesn’t want any reward.
When Roselina, who recklessly arrived at the mansion, brought up the issue of divorce, the Duke thought she was being fickle again.
‘After a few days, she’ll change her mind and go back to the Palesdon mansion.’
However, the Duke’s expectations were wrong. Roselina silently showed her intention through her actions.
‘Did you finally grow up in Palesdon?’
He was proud, but at the same time, he felt sorry. It was an ambivalent emotion.
He was glad to see his daughter grow up, but he was not happy with the hard work of the process.
‘What happened in those three years.’
The duke recalled Roselina’s words.
‘I’ve been alone all along… ‘
That time must have been terribly lonely and difficult. That Roselina, who was so obsessed with the Duke of Palesdon, wanted to put everything down.
Finally, the duke made a decision.
“Now call me Father.”
“I’ll give you permission to divorce. Come back to Brighton.”
He just wanted his daughter to be happy.
