Because She Had A Time Limit, She Became The Villain's Daughter-in-law - Chapter 4
Translator and Editor: Skye and Nabi
Evan Rinio Icard.
The sole successor to the Villainous Duke of Icard.
He grew up as one of those people who is accustomed to his father’s indifference, and he is a strange person who has no emotions.
Of course, he is a good-looking man like his father, but he is just a doll with a fine outer shell and an empty soul.
A man who is indifferent to all human contact, who is not even interested in his surroundings.
When his terminally ill wife died, he didn’t even shed a single tear!
Since then, even if he was married off again, he did not have a normal marriage, which leads to the extent to which he is openly cheated on.
‘After possessing this body, I don’t think the original story was that great anymore…’
The original story was mainly about Elaine, the heroine, leading the male protagonist, who is her true love during her political marriage to Evan.
At that time, Evan…
Though he knew everything, he was insensitive. It was as if he had no expectations or hope. Since the issue was the Empire foreboding them to divorce.
It was a massive obstacle for the male and female leads. So the self-directed heroine Elaine created her own law to divorce.
The ending was, Elaine forced the villain to deal with the opponent, then eloped with the main male lead.
‘So the great dreams of the Duke of Icard never come true.’
Evan and Elaine couldn’t continue their marriage and broke up quickly, so they couldn’t take control of the royal family.
‘What’s his dream? Why were you so obsessed with power that you wanted to take over the Imperial court? I don’t even know what happened to the Duke of Icard after the ending.’
If I had known that I would have been a member of the Duke of Icard’s, I would have read the book more attentively.
In front of the main entrance of the academy, families celebrating graduation were handing out bouquets.
Among those people was Evan, standing still, expressionless. Of course, the Duke of Icard didn’t prepare any bouquets.
He pushed me to Evan and spoke briefly.
“This is your wife.”
Who would just plainly agree if someone suddenly showed up to an elementary school student, who just graduated, pushed a girl in front of them, and introduced them as ‘your wife’?
Oh… I guess he’s an expectation.
He replied without changing his expression.
Evan was very similar to the Duke.
Black hair, his height is quite tall for thirteen years old, and indifferent red eyes were fully developed despite still being a child.
Even though he is a year younger than me, he looked like my older brother.
‘He’s really handsome, but he doesn’t give a good impression…’
In the original book, there was a saying that he had a beautiful and seductive appearance.
Unlike the male lead, who boasts a refreshing and sly charm, Evan had a grim and decadent appearance.
‘He looks old for his age…’
But there’s a myth that a man who looks old when he is a child will eventually look younger as they become older.
It was also mentioned that his face did not change over time ever since his young age. I smiled, comforting myself that someday my victory will arrive, there will be a time when I look younger than my peers.
“Laila Rose Rostry…no, it’s Laria Rose Icard.”
I introduced myself politely.
“Congratulations on your graduation.”
I said my congratulations for his graduation since Duke Icard didn’t even bother. Though it doesn’t cost much, it is enough for simple lip service.
“Nice to meet you.”
His reply was short.
As expected, he is a boy without emotions.
It is clear that he didn’t even expect to be congratulated by his father on his graduation.
‘Of course, he’s a man who didn’t care if his wife is dead, or having an affair…’
It is difficult to call him a variable in my future life because I would not be interested in what he would do.
“I received a letter from your teacher two months ago. Why did you hit your classmate?”
‘He hit someone?’
My ears perked.
Evan is a year younger than me, but he is much taller and has a better physique than his peers.
‘‘I think it would hurt a lot if I get hit by him.’
“It’s been three weeks since I got out of my suspension.”
Oh, my. Three weeks.
I listened quietly to the Duke’s question and kept quiet.
“He lied to me.”
“He called me a friend, then he cursed and criticized me behind my back.
Oh my. You must have been upset.
Originally, I thought he didn’t care about others, but he seemed to still have some emotion since he is still young.
Evan continued calmly.
“I hit him in front of everyone because I didn’t want to be the same type of person he was”
He added, “I can’t stand lying.”
“I especially didn’t want to pretend to be acquainted with each other.”
I looked up at Duke Icard in amazement.
You… you aren’t going to scold him?
Anyway, he hit him! Three weeks suspension is just a joke for kids!
“A child who mistreats friendship should be scolded.”
But the Duke of Icard just gave a brief answer.
As expected, the three-week suspension seemed to be nothing.
‘Then my little life would mean nothing.’
The answer is for her to run away when she grows up more.
The topic must be over now since Duke Icard pointed at me and talked.
Why are you suddenly saying this?
“She wants to get along with you.”
“She said a family should take care of each other.”
Sweat trickled down my back.
Even if he did say that Evan could easily get along with me, what if we don’t get along? Am I going to get hit as well?
Evan and I are so different, I am a lot more intimate than him.
‘Why is he introducing me like this?’
I don’t think he’ll let me off just because I am a woman.
Especially now that my body is as weak as a sheet of paper, I’m sure it will hurt tremendously if I get hit.
‘If that ever happens…I’m gonna have to lie down for three months like Baron Gerrioge, who wasn’t able to get up for three weeks.’
With my condition, I don’t have any choice but to accept it.
“Yes, let’s get along.”
I smiled and said it kindly.
“You don’t know how much I wanted to meet you, Evan.”
Since he is being indifferent towards me, it’s best just to say this right now.
“Let’s grow up to be a loving couple.”
Evan’s pupils looked at me surprised for a moment.
“Yeah, let’s do that.”
Hmm, is the back of his neck a little red…
Or is it just my imagination?
