Because She Had A Time Limit, She Became The Villain's Daughter-in-law - Chapter 10
Translator and Editor: Skye and Nabi
‘The original dividend for Seymour is 68,024 times. I bet with him so it’s half.’
“La, La, Laria?”
Evan looked at me with a ridiculous look. Evan also received 19 times the dividend, which is a great achievement, but no one paid attention. Even the Duke of Icard, who had his arms crossed indifferently, gave me a puzzled look.
“Oh, my God.”
Ordi came in person and tried to hand me a check that read 34,012 gold, but he handed me 34,011 gold checks and a gold coin at my request.
“That’s a ridiculous result…there are two people who bet on this ridiculous result.”
I returned the coin to the Duke of Icard.
“Father, it’s all thanks to you.”
“Thank you for the lucky gold coin. I’ll give it back to you, and I hope father is full of luck!”
Duke Icard received the gold coin I gave him and smiled very lightly before putting it in his pocket.
‘Did he smile? Really?’
Meanwhile, Evan seemed curious about something else.
He asked while tilting his head as if it was strange that there was one other person besides me.
“Who’s the other one?”
“A commoner. I’m 18 years old.”
Ordi scratched his chin.
‘I’m sorry, Seymour…but you’re gonna be fine with Elaine. Well, things are going to be okay with you, right?’
If we go to the original, regardless of whether Seymour has a lot of money, Evan will be bad for Elaine, which leads her to have an affair.
Rather than Male and Female Leads, which will end in a happy ending, it’s better that way to make my life longer.
No idea chief
“It’s going to be crazy in tomorrow’s newspaper article. With this kind of result…maybe your wife’s name will be in the article as well.”
“Oh, that’s a bit of a burden.”
I blushed shyly, but I felt good and thought of it as necessary highlights for my future plans on the inside.
34,011 gold is a lot of money, but there would not be much left after the title is bought.
‘I have to disappear, but I can’t hide poorly. If I don’t disappear completely, Duke Icard will kill me. I need to be thoroughly prepared.’
So, instead of dying like in the original novel, I decided to create my own future by going missing.
The results will be the same anyway!!
‘Only when I’m completely missing will Evan marry Ellani.’
After that, well… I didn’t care what happened to me. However, I had no intention of living in pain.
“I already know how comfortable it is for a nobleman with a title and a land.”
It is hard for the snow to come down once more.
[ T/N: It is hard to miss an opportunity that doesn’t come that much. ]
I wanted to keep myself attached to luxury, but I don’t think it can be to the standard of living they have made me feel.
If I had possessed a rich rascal. I would have dreamed much bigger, but this is only a matter of survival.
‘I have to have a land to keep playing and eating, and I need a title to do that.’
The title was a little expensive, but I could buy it. And once I had a title, I could buy the territory.
The male lead, Seymour, also began by buying his own title.
But there is a problem. To buy a title, I have to be at least eighteen years old, but I am only fourteen years old.
If I wait until I am eighteen and buy a title, everything will be too late. There are many things to do after buying a title to make more money.
That doesn’t mean there’s no other way.
It is all about creating a fictional character.
‘I’m going to create an identity on paper to buy a title and a territory…’
It would be a perfect secret if I hid there.
And one more thing.
‘I’m fourteen-years-old, and I’m not free to move because I’m staying at the Duchy.’
In other words, it is really necessary for me to fake an identity.
‘I wish I had someone to work on the rear end for me. A man with great abilities.’
While I was thinking about this, Ordi kept making a fuss.
“You are a great Young Lady. Didn’t you say you brought your daughter-in-law in yourself?”
“Well, their mother’s relationship is very close.”
“But it wouldn’t have been an easy decision to get married.”
The power of the Duchess of Icard is great, but it was no joke.
He rubbed his hands and kept flattering.
“You have a great eye. Everyone is wondering because it is too early, but you recognized that she is an angel that would bring good luck to the Duchy.”
That’s not it… I didn’t bring you here with good intentions…
Duke Icard looked strangely proud and coughed vainly.
I’m the one who won the money. So, why are you making a proud face?
“Laria, you’ve adjusted well to the Duchy, haven’t you?”
I answered politely because I am weak to the strong and strong to the weak.
“Of course. I love you all. It’s only been a while, but I want us to be closer!”
You’re not the only one who knows how to mess with me. I’m no joke, too. I’m the handbell of the Icard.
“I’m so proud to be here with you because you and Evan look so good. It’s more fortunate for me to live with you in the Icard Family than me winning the horse race.”
I went so far as to smile in the end.
Ordi answered straight away as if he couldn’t lose.
“That’s right. Duke Icard has a great sense of humor, so he’ll be great to live with.”
Wait, a sense of humor?
That’s too much of him. I don’t think he should be adding something this ridiculous.
“I don’t play jokes in my books.”
Ordi looked surprised at the blunt words from Duke Icard.
“No, why don’t you play that joke when everyone is happy?”
“Joking is caused by the mouth, not by feet.”
I was frozen for a while.
‘Putting feet on the line?’
Ha, this isn’t right.
‘This is really not right. What’s the matter with you?’
Ordi held his stomach and laughed.
“More, More! Hahahahaha! You’re the best!”
This is the messiest, highest level skill of an older man’s jokes.
I had to admit that I lack because I had a serious face for a moment.
Of course, people shouldn’t be arrogant.
No, why is a young man playing such a gag?
I acknowledged my defeat neatly and vowed not to go further.
“I don’t think you have to put your feet in your mouth in front of the Duke.”
Evan, who didn’t need any flattery, said the right thing with a firm look.
“Why? I’m having so much fun!”
“Father, please do it more often in the future! It’s totally my style.”
Then, suddenly my heart tickled.
It is a sign of a cough that felt like vomiting blood.
I jumped to my feet.
It’s good to show my illness to the Duke, but I would be in trouble if they confirmed the circulating rumor. Especially in front of a representative who seemed to have a big mouth…
The Duke brought me in because I have a time limit that no one knew.
If everyone knew my time limit, my value of use would disappear, so they would immediately get rid of me.
“Well, if you’ll excuse me…”
I got up in a hurry, covering my mouth with a handkerchief.
Of course, I did not forget to tilt my handkerchief to the point where the Duke could only see it.
I haven’t often been bleeding lately.
So, I had to make use of it whenever I could.
The last look on the Duke’s face was strange again.
