Please Be A Traitor - Chapter 3
Translator and Editor: Lea and Aki
[Shabel, The White Snowflake]
That was the worst novel that she had ever read. She got angry each time she turned a page.
The female lead, Shabel, always acted innocent even though she wasn’t. But the male lead knew that she was wise.
After she was bullied by a wicked woman, she was found crying in the Imperial garden.
The Prince, the male lead who was very righteous and kind, soothed her.
Shabel said that she didn’t want to be bullied by other princesses and wanted to be the Crown Princess. In response to her request, the Crown Prince agreed.
‘Urgh! Why did he accept her? I need to know!’
But, what if Inaila was much wiser than Shabel?
Shabel, who gained power by seducing the Crown Prince, caused the groundless slander of those women who wanted to look good in front of the Prince.
It was even rumored among the women that she managed her beauty by draining out the blood of young children.
The Crown Prince, who always had complimented her beauty, used to send her treats.
However, Shabel was thirteen and the Crown Prince was twenty-one.
Was he out of his mind?
Since Inaila reincarnated, it took her 13 years to remember all her memories from her previous life.
She remembered reading the novel to its end as she was curious about how the story would end.
Eventually, the villain died, and the main characters ended up living happily.
It’s so pointless.
What’s really fortunate was that the Crown Prince only supported Shabel until she became an adult.
Now, that novel became the world in which she was born as its character.
She had wondered if the glimpses of her previous life were an illusion, or if only the factors in this world coincidentally matched with those in the novel she read.
It would’ve been better if it were an illusion, but the background was 100% identical.
The male lead of the novel was the Crown Prince, Radiov.
The relationship between the family of Krenberia and the Imperial family was still the same as Karpel.
The novel wasn’t going on the way she thought it would. Besides that, she couldn’t stop herself from reading it.
Karpel was bound by revenge all his life and he eventually died without gaining anything.
But the main characters had a happy ending.
That alone was what annoyed her. However, the incident that happened on New Year’s Day was not the cause of his treason.
Even before Karpel committed treason, there was another incident that occurred on this land.
It sounded like a sweet romantic novel of Shabel from the title alone, but it was never like that.
It was understandable to introduce events such as the invasion of different tribes and drought to highlight the male protagonist.
However, a series of incidents occurred such as the destruction of the territory, the trust of the Holy Spirit, and the invasion by a tribe, which honestly had nothing to do with the main characters.
The Crown Prince solved everything easily except for the cases that had no business with him.
But it was after the death of many people. And among them was the land on where she was living now, Krenberia.
By the time Karpel committed treason, Krenberia’s territory was absorbed by the Imperial family, and her family was ruined to the point where the name of her family was completely forgotten.
She didn’t really know what happened to Inaila Krenberia. The character didn’t even appear in the novel in the first place.
Maybe if she kept pushing Karpel, it would really result in the destruction of her family.
‘I can’t let that happen, at any cost.’
Well, she would have to think of a better way.
Since she had read the ways on how the male lead solved the cases, she knew it all by heart.
She still remembered all of the schemes of the main characters vividly.
Crown Prince Radiov may have been destined to be the main character of the novel.
But the main character in this life was only her. And it would be her choice that would shape her story.
While thinking about ways to solve this and that, she thought it would be easier for her to solve the problems if Karpel’s cooperation was present.
‘But will he really help me when he hates me so much?’
It seemed as though he’d accept the deal if she offered the terms that he wanted.

As she was thinking about it, it was already early in the morning. When her maid came in to wake her up, her face was boiling hot.
‘I’ve been using my brain too much for 13 years…..’
She heard the maid calling her father, the Duke, and the mansion fell again into a state of ruckus.
She was a golden treasure in the eyes of the Duke of Krenberia.
Her father immediately ran to her room, keeping his work aside.
He was acting as if she was dead.
“Oh, my beautiful bell. My little darling…..”
Her limbs crouched at his words, which kept ringing in her mind.
Tightly holding her hand, he slowly unfolded her fingers before locking his hand with hers.
“If you’re in pain, hold your papa’s hand, Ina. Or your little nails would hurt you.”
She had always heard him talk to her like that, but now, she was embarrassed.
It wasn’t just because she was sick but because of his mentality.
Her father, who was now holding her hand, was not much older than how she was aged in her previous life.
However, she had a lot of beautiful memories of being loved and acting cute.
It was a beautiful memory of a little girl who ate her father’s brain and even got everything she had wanted.
‘…..I think I’m gonna lose it.’
When she frowned as she felt her hair becoming sticky, her father’s face became tearful.
“My sweet darling, are you in pain? I called the physician. Hang in there, darling.”
‘He seems so worried about me.’
Although her father’s overprotective nature was embarrassing, she felt very sorry for falling sick and hurting his feelings.
“Don’t cry, papa. My heart aches when I see papa in tears.”
He looked up at her and it seemed like he was glaring at her.
‘What? What is it?’
Looking at her father in a daze, she noticed a thick stream of water flowing down from his eyes as if a faucet had been turned on.
She was so surprised that she almost jumped out of her bed.
“It’s your papa! My darling! It’s papa’s fault, it’s your papa’s fault!”
Suddenly, he enveloped her into a hug.
“N-No. Papa, how can it be……”
“Again! It’s your papa again! You must be angry, my bell! My sweet darling!”
‘He must have lost his mind.’
She knew her father treated her specially, but what she didn’t know was that it would be this bad.
She couldn’t believe he cried because of his 13-year-old daughter.
Even if so, she couldn’t leave him as he meant the world to her. She reached out her small hand and started patting him on his back.
“P-Papa, it’s just a fever. Please calm down.”
He eyed her suspiciously.
Thinking of anything else that possibly might have gone wrong, she realized she had never talked with him this calmly.
She was 13, but she always talked and acted like she was only 3 in front of her father.
Until yesterday, she was acting as if nothing had happened, but she couldn’t do it now even when she tried to.
The problem was that the memories of her previous life came to her mind yesterday, which never happened ever since she was born. Those memories, which she thought weren’t hers, didn’t become clear until yesterday.
But she didn’t want to make him feel suspicious just because she was awkward.
‘Okay…get a hold of yourself.’
“Please don’t cry, papa. Please stop for me, okay?”
He was crying.
But saying that he was screaming to his heart content would be exaggerating.
Only then did he stop crying. It was so shameful for her to think about how she could make him act like this.
“Are you sure, my darling?”
Tears welled up in his blue eyes as she hesitated.
“Uh! Papa, stop it!”
“Yes, that’s it. This is what my darling says.”
‘Ah…..Shall I quit showing filial piety?’
