Please Be A Traitor - Chapter 2
Translator and Editor: Lea and Aki
Karpel hated spending time with people. However, she still dragged him around.
He denied every time she asked him to escort her. Thinking that he wasn’t being honest, she just told him to follow her.
The reason why Karpel hated being in crowded places was that he wanted to avoid the toxic glances of the people who usually thought he was the enemy of the Emperor.
The nobles were afraid to be entangled with him, who was hated by the Emperor.
Moreover, it was very dangerous for Karpel himself to go to such a place. Inaila didn’t know until now that he was also threatened with his life.
At the New Year’s banquet that was held earlier this year, she had seen Karpel fleeing to the garden to avoid people, and then killing the assassin.
It was the first time she saw a person die.
It was not in a drama, but a person getting stabbed to death right in front of his eyes. The murderer was the 16-year-old Karpel.
The droplets of blood that had been splattered over those beautiful moonlit blue flowers. The golden eyes of Karpel staring coldly down at the assassin in the dark.
Inaila’s hands became soaked in cold sweat.
She crouched down, closing her eyes. Her body, trembling with fear.
She was the one who forced him to attend the event along with her. Such a huge nuisance.
If she hadn’t forced him, he wouldn’t have killed someone whose aim was to kill Karpel himself.
But she didn’t even have the guts to apologize to him.
She had been dragging him around with her ever since they were engaged. In fact, Karpel was very strong.
She was just so offended that there was someone who tried to kill her fiancé.
It was only natural that her fiancé was strong enough to kill off an assassin like a fly.
However, that was not normal.
She thought if Karpel could marry her as soon as possible, he would be able to avoid such dangerous situations like that.
I’m Inaila Krenberia.
The Duke of Krenberia is my father. So, if Karpel becomes the successor of Krenberia, the Emperor will not be able to hurt him.
And finally, she had an engagement ceremony last month. She still vividly remembered Karpel’s face, which had been stiff throughout the event. He didn’t even make eye contact with her.
‘Why was I so stupid all this time?’
How horrible would Karpel feel when a stupid little girl from a family who was like an enemy to him insisted to be engaged with him?
‘If I was Karpel, I would have killed such a thoughtless girl and buried her deep under the ground.’
In fact, Karpel’s eyes didn’t seem to be that caring whenever she was around.
‘Maybe he thinks about burying me 10 times a day?’
Above all, the fiancé of Karpel Ivelox did not even appear in the main part of the novel.
She had been reincarnated as a side character in a novel. She soon realized that she was ignorant about her future until now.
She heard a knock again after she sighed heavily.
She gasped in surprise. Holding the quilt, she turned her head towards the door.
She heard a familiar voice.
It was Karpel.
She jumped up reflexively. Her eyes wandering around the room, looking for a place to hide into.
‘Today is going to be my funeral! I shouldn’t have thought about him that way!’
Not being able to find a place to hide, she thought about pretending to be asleep for a while. But then, she immediately revoked it.
‘I’d be more vulnerable if I pretend to sleep!’
So, she concluded that it would be better to scream if ever she felt threatened by him.
Gulping down her dry saliva, she trimmed her clothes and brushed her hair. She carefully opened the door to find Karpel standing there.
She was scared. Her mind went blank as soon as she faced him.
It was just Karpel.
The Karpel, whom she was so desperate to be engaged to. She was so stubborn.
Karpel was in his casual attire with a long robe over his pajamas. He was the perfect example of an Italian model in a fashion magazine.
His posture was even more elegant. She looked up to face him.
A half-shaded handsome face in the dark hallway looked down at her.
Her heart pounded the moment she encountered those golden eyes of his.
Karpel was so tall that she thought he was the one who might have grown up, considering that she still seemed short.
The boy was probably going to be transformed into a young adult soon, given the impression that he was getting sharper day by day.
Even now, he seemed to have enough masculine charm.
The golden eyes were still staring at the stature of the girl coldly.
But to her, it seemed as though there was probably a caring heart behind that sharp attitude of his.
But she hated it. She just didn’t want to believe.
Her heart ached. It was when she was 10 years old that she started to bug him.
There were a lot of things to consider when this boy suddenly changed his attitude.
It might have been then. Either when her grandfather helped the present Emperor to kill his father, or when he was locked up in the Krenberian prison, which broke his wings.
She liked Karpel back then too. She was young, but she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him.
Karpel began to distance himself from her while she insisted on being with him. Since she was stubborn, she even begged him for affection.
She thought Karpel couldn’t have hated her. She believed that he would come to love her family even though her grandfather was his enemy.
If she did well from now on, wouldn’t she be able to win his heart?
Karpel was still a 16-year-old child. If one could tame him well, he…..
Sixteen. The word woke her up.
‘Ina, are you crazy?’
Karpel was still a boy. Just a child!
Age was also a crazy idea. She grabbed her brush tightly.
Thinking rationally, she realized that he had no choice but to hate her. Even though she remembered her past life, her heart could not keep up with the truth.
But she also couldn’t behave like she used to.
All she could understand now was that his way of thinking was scary and unfamiliar to her.
Aiming for taking away the life of a person.
There could also be a possibility of her being killed if he ever came to know that she was the granddaughter of his enemy.
The feeling that her Karpel could not do that and the fact that he was already a murderer at such an early age was quite complicated to her.
His cold golden eyes caused her to wail inwardly.
Was it not true that it was a very frank and blatant glance?
Simply put, he didn’t like her.
A heart that is so full of hatred. How could she have thought that he was being disingenuous?
She was now sure that his eyes might have emanated the same coldness towards the assassin before he killed him.
She was wondering how he has the ability to kill someone so swiftly.
After watching him like that, she had run towards her room. She believed that he would not kill her since she was the princess of Krenberia.
The attitude she had shown tens of thousands of times towards him flowed to her like a thunderbolt.
He was really brave to be ignorant towards her, who was already annoying to him.
Scary. He was really scary.
No matter how much she loved him, he was a young wounded beast driven to the edge of a cliff.
A predator, who is old enough to bear fangs and claws.
Maybe he thinks that killing her right now would do him no harm?
There was a dead end scarier than each last way she tried to progress in. She did not want to remember how she had been pretending to be pretty and a bother in front of him.
‘Why are you here? Isn’t this the first time you’ve come to see me at this hour? Did the bear get so annoyed when I was thinking about him in the middle of the night that he wanted to beat me up? I could easily defend myself in my previous life, but now I’m just a 13-year-old weak girl.’
She thought she was getting older at her convenience, but it was her memory. Anyway, she was only 13 now.
It was not courteous to visit like this at night, even if they were engaged.
Even under the Imperial Law, minors were strictly forbidden to act like this.
If he did something disrespectful, he would be imprisoned for another 7 years!
She shuddered as he looked up at his cold eyes and swallowed a dry lump, unable to say anything.
Karpel narrowed his eyelids.
“What else do you need?”
The moment his words fell, there was a slight flicker in his eyes.
He only showed contempt to a foolish woman who only knew to gratify her greed by sleeping in a tranquil home.
She was stunned.
It seemed unfair.
She was not stupid.
She really worked hard in her previous life. But Inaila was dumb and stupid. Still, it was unfair.
Getting not a single response from her, Karpel reached out to her. But, she stepped back instantly.
He gently raised his hand and grabbed the doorknob that she was holding.
She was afraid that he would push in, but he grabbed the doorknob and closed the door.
He replied in a low threatening voice before closing the door.
“Stop being so annoying and go to sleep.”
Thud. The door is closed.
Her feet were stuck to one place for a long time. It took her a little while to realize what he had just said. And, it took another few minutes to understand the meaning of his words.
Karpel’s room was right next to hers.
The sound of her thoughts must have been annoying.
