Today's Goal Is A Safe Divorce! - Chapter 9
Translator and Editor: Effe and Nabi
There were a lot of empty rooms in the castle. Still, she could not understand the Countess’ intention to give her Rowena’s room.
“She is going to another room.”
“She’s not going to the attic, right?”
No matter how much the Countess discards Rowena, she won’t go there.
“It is not.”
“Why am I moving to Rowena’s room instead of the new one?”
“It takes a long time to make and decorate a new room now.”
No matter how much time it took to decorate a new room, the Countess didn’t have to move her to Rowena’s old room. In other words, changing the room was not something urgent.
“We changed the atmosphere in the room, so don’t worry too much.”
“Change the atmosphere…? Didn’t Rowena use it until this morning?”
“Lady Rowena moved to another room at dawn.”
It was said that the Countess had already prepared everything from dawn. Why is she in a hurry? She had no reason to rush.
Something was strange.
“Do you like the new room?”
Upon returning from the long bath, she was escorted to the room where Rowena used to stay. As it was said that they changed the atmosphere, the room was a little different from when Rowena was using it. It seemed like a lot of effort was put in to change the atmosphere of the room at dawn.
“Why did you give me Rowena’s room?”
“I did it because I wanted to give you a room as soon as possible. Do you feel bad because it is Rowena’s room?”
The Countess’ reaction, who was particularly concerned, was strange. And now, she suddenly took Rowena’s room away. No matter how much she exchanged her card with Rowena, Elysia used to be a thorn in her eyes.
However, pushes her own blood-related niece? This was something she truly couldn’t understand.
“You don’t need to rush this far.”
It had been less than a day since she had made a deal with the Countess. Though in the meantime, everything was changed. These were unexpected things. Elysia didn’t think she’d dare even threaten Rowena’s place.
The Countess, who could not bear children, projected herself into Rowena. That was why she couldn’t stand it unless the Count and Edward paid attention to her. She acted as if it was the Countess who did it.
Although she pushed Rowena out?
“If you want to become the Grand Duchess in the future, you must learn to enjoy these things now.”
There was always a reason for excessive kindness.
Elysia stiffened her body and tensed at the Countess’ reaction, whom she never knew would change.
“Were you not skeptical of me becoming the Grand Duchess until yesterday?”
With the Countess’ attitude, which took a different attitude in just a few hours, she sensed that something was going wrong. How could she switch Elysia and Rowena’ss positions if she has no certainty…?
It was a very strange thing, even if all this was already bizarre enough.
“Why all of a sudden?”
“What are you saying? I’ll be nice to Edward like you want.”
It was definitely different from the day before when she reluctantly accepted Elysia’s terms. It even made her feel as if the Countess was looking at her mind right now. She was afraid of what the Countess was hiding. There was no unpaid kindness, especially if the other person was the Countess.
“It’s inconvenient, so just do what you normally do. To be honest, it’s very uncomfortable.”
As she looked at the Countess’s crumpled face at my words, Elysia knew she wasn’t doing this because she wanted to.
So, what could have made the Countess like this?
“I’m glad you’re not comfortable with it. I just happened to be uncomfortable, too.”
“At dawn, I received an urgent call from Grand Duchy Raphael.”
When she heard that they had been contacted by Grand Duchy Raphael, Elysiabecame nervous and swallowed a gulp.
It was an urgent call in the morning. Usually, when they refuse or accept a marriage conversation, they don’t call in the early morning hours…
“A positive response came from the Grand Duchy.”
She was nervous at the thought of this, though again, Damon agreed to the wedding. Up to this point, the contents of the book were the same.
“So it is. If you become the Grand Duchess, do not forget that it is entirely the work of County Caitlyn.”
The fact that she pretended to be so kind as she was only going to tell her of this, Elysia was exhausted.
“You are Count Caitlyn’s person, no matter what. Do you know that?”
“Why are you emphasizing that now?”
“It means not to forsake grace in an ungrateful way.”
Grand Duchy Raphael’s power seemed quite good. The Countess scrambled away from her room when she was finished with what she had to say after arranging the things the Countess had given her for a while.
Eventually, when she was finally left alone, Elysia felt a sense of reality.
“…Ah, now I’m the wife of the really sexy trash Damon Raphael.”
Apart from being a mad killer, she wondered what he looked like. Damon’s handsome appearance also contributed to his popularity.
“I wonder what he looks like…”
She wondered about his face, though she never thought she would be able to see him so soon.
“Nice to meet you, wife.”
Elysia lost her words to the sight of the man speaking with a smile in front of her now. She seemed to know why the Countess had hastily changed her room.
“You must have been very surprised.”
The man in front of her was not the Damon Raphael Elysia had imagined.
Was Damon the character who originally spoke so politely? No matter how many times she recalled, she had never seen Damon say anything politely to anyone. Besides, he wasn’t even the owner of a single smile…
So, who was the man who is speaking respectfully with a smile on his lips right now in front of her?
“You came so suddenly…”
“It seems that the Countess didn’t give a word in advance.”
Jet-black hair and sky-blue eyes that look like they are in the sky… And, above all, when Elysia saw Damon’s face, she couldn’t help but be surprised.
He had an overly good-looking appearance as he was nicknamed “sexy trash.” Even the statue that God made with great care seemed to lose its light in front of Damon.
It wasn’t just that. Even when he was still, the grace and sexiness that flowed from him were enough to captivate just by looking at him. Such a person was even smiling, so it was hard to come to her senses.
Also, his voice was so good that it felt like her ears were melting sweetly.
“You look more beautiful in a bright light, wife.”
“Pardon…? Your wife?”
Elysia was glad that she was surprised to hear that she was his wife. After all, knowing how cruel Damon was, she was almost bewitched. She should not be deceived. She must not forget that a danger like poison lurks beneath that sweet smile.
“Yes, wife. I call you my wife. What should I call my wife then?”
Was the word wife such a sweet and tender word…? It was so natural that she almost didn’t find it strange.
“I know we haven’t been married yet.”
“I think it is too early to say that I am your wife. Can you just call me by name?”
Although the calling voice was nice, she felt a little reluctant to be called a wife from the first meeting with him. Elysia was taken aback by his response, so favorable for a man who had declared that he would never marry.
“I don’t think that would be possible.”
Of course, she thought he would stop, though Damon’s words came out of nowhere. Seeing his smile as if she had said wrong, she was at a loss for words.
“You are going to be my wife, so why shouldn’t I call you wife.”
At that moment, she realized when she heard his answer, she couldn’t communicate with him. No matter what she answered, he didn’t seem willing to change his mind. It didn’t make sense to Elysia that even from the beginning, he called her ‘wife.’
Is he possibly pretending to be friendly, trying to reassure her and poison her…? Otherwise, Damon couldn’t have acted kindly to her.
When she found out that all of this was to reassure her, then it would all make sense.
“It doesn’t matter what you call me.”
She had to refrain from provoking the madman. It was because Elysia couldn’t figure out what Damon was thinking, but at least she knew she wasn’t supposed to provoke him. If she’s wrong, he’s a man who kills people casually, so being called his wife was nothing.
“You don’t like being called my wife, do you?”
“…How could it be?”
Again, Damon was sharp. He was staring intently at her, with his blue eyes narrowing. She tried to avoid his gaze. In fact, it was very difficult for Elysia to look face to face with him like this now.
She already knew all the truth about him, although pretending to be okay, pretending to be normal, how frightening it was to see him. In order for her trembling fingertips not to be caught even now, she was constantly working hard.
Her lips were parched, and sweat was forming on her forehead and back of her head.
Facing Damon Raphael was more challenging than she thought. It was as if they were having a conversation with a time bomb in front that might explode. There was such a great tension that the game would be over immediately if even a single word were wrong.
Elysia choked her breath just at the thought that she had to keep doing this.
“The wife doesn’t seem to like me very much.”
