Untouchable Lady - Chapter 13
Translator and Editor: Effe and Nabi
The employees who were working in the mansion trembled at the sight of Hilise entering the building.
Those who treated Hilse as if she was Invisible a week ago were now busy observing her.
She had never deliberately shown off her power, but she didn’t hesitate to do it when it was needed. Now, everyone in Inoaden knows that her power has awakened.
In addition, the mood surrounding Hilise has changed dramatically since then, as well as her actions, her tone of speech, and eyes as if she was not the person she was.
Now, Hilise wasn’t someone who they could ignore like before.
And whether or not they cared, Hilise just turned to her room without any concern for them.
White sunlight poured in from the windows in the hallway.
[ “It certainly doesn’t seem like there’s anyone in Inoaden that goes well with roses like you.” ]
Suddenly, the man’s face she saw in the garden a while ago passed by like an afterimage. That sweet voice seemed to linger in her ears.
[ “It is an honor to meet the owner of the new rose, Miss Hilise.” ]
In her repetitive life, Christian Parvenon has always been the first to learn about Hilise’s awakening.
There wasn’t a single exception to it in her last seven lives.
Because he was in a very advantageous position as Gabrielle’s fiance.
Even without doing anything, he always easily won people’s favor with his unique charm.
Christian was a man who seemed to have sweet honey or fragrant flower charm.
His sculptural appearance was outstanding and beautiful, and his actions always exude a sense of elegance and refinement.
However, no matter how it seems, you shouldn’t be fooled by his harmless appearance.
In the first place, Christian’s engagement with Gabrielle was a thoroughly rational decision.
There was no such thing as love.
He made an extremely rational choice as the successor to the Parvenon.
In fact, it was the eldest son, Ricardo, who was confirmed to be the successor to the next rose in Inoaden.
Hilise had soft red hair, making it unbelievable that she inherited Inoaden’s blood more than anyone else. In addition, she brought on the hatred of Diego and Ricardo, the de facto power in Inoaden.
So Christian chose Gabrielle, whom they terribly cherish, even if there was no Inoaden blood within her.
Ricardo would be the successor of the next rose anyway, so it was calculated that having a relationship with Gabrielle rather than Hilise would be more beneficial to the two families’ close ties. Initially, the four generations that inherited the ancient blood had organic solidarity with each other. Inoaden, Calicia, Verjet, and Parbenon. Among those families, ‘Parbenon’ was called ‘Clan of Winter’ or ‘Clan of Frost.’
Just as the people of Inoaden bloom flowers every time they use their ability, the people with the blood of the Parvenon freeze the surroundings white.
However, the ability of the Parvenons has weakened, and now it is in a state of being handed down only to the direct lineage.
It was only after her powers had blossomed that Christian suddenly became interested in her previous lives.
So it was obvious to realize what he wanted with Hilise.
Hilise moved her dry eyes towards the window.
The leaves stained with yellow sunlight looked like jewels hanging from branches. Every time the cool breeze blew, the scenery in front of her glared brightly.
A long time ago, her heartbeats every time she sees his smile towards her…
She doesn’t feel anything now.
Hilise continued walking after stopping in front of her window for a while.
She walked toward her room in a grim mood.
Hilise still never looked back.
Diego, who heard of what happened in Inoaden during the day, was stunned and upset with Gabrielle.
It was after that he realized who brought Christian into the mansion.
The news of Hilise’s awakening was supposed to be top secret.
If the information spreads around, how would the other families, especially the ancient blood, react.
If they ever recognize Hilise as the successor instead of Diego, this would be a headache.
Gabrielle tried to fool Diego as usual, but after betraying his expectations, she cried after being forced to stay in her room.
She was already shocked by Christian’s actions.
So, she thought if she told her father, he would side with her and comfort her.
Gabrielle sobbed so badly that Diego soon consoled her.
But Diego was undoubtedly at a loss for what to do in his room.
These days, he was unable to sleep well at night while searching the literature.
He was trying to find ways to transfer the abilities to others if the successor’s power already began to bloom.
After soothing Gabrielle, Diego entered his office and touched his stiff forehead.
When he learned of Hilise’s awakening, he had no idea what kind of attitude he would have.
The change that Christain made today was stark, but that alone was not enough to fully grasp the inside of the Parvenons.
For now, Diego was unconditionally thinking about keeping Hilise’s awakening until he figured out how to transfer power to Ricardo.
When his headache was throbbing, the scene he had seen a few days ago suddenly came to mind again.
[ “If what happened to me yesterday was an awakening, I would be fine. Otherwise, I would die or get hurt.” ]
The white hem silently shook from the window.
A distant smile spread between the long hair fluttering in the wind.
[ “Which way would you want it to be?” ]
Shortly after, the slender figure disappeared from sight in an instant, as if immersed in the light.
The thin curtains fluttering around the empty window made him feel like a storm was raging in front of him at that moment.
Diego closed his eyes. The headache got more intense than earlier.
On that day, Diego’s body hardened like a stone, just standing there for a while. However, his heavy leg moved as if he had been pushed by something.
The walk toward the window was terribly heavy, as he seemed to be putting weight on his ankle.
What he was thinking then, Diego did not even know himself.
What kind of emotion he felt when he saw Hilise lying on a bed of roses that bloomed everywhere.
Diego has never visited Hilise since.
All of a sudden, the image of her eyes staring at him came to mind.
Those innocent golden eyes that had dried up in desolation without showing any warmth.
And the words she said, looking straight in his eyes.
[ “My father has never played the role of a father to me my whole life. You probably know it yourself.” ]
Diego shook his head, struggling to shake off the lingering image in his head.
He needed to find a way to transfer the power to Ricardo at all costs.
That was the only thing he should be caring about right now.
“I heard you attacked Gabrielle.”
That evening, Ricardo visited Hilise.
At that time, Hilise was staring at the twilight that had spread out of her window.
Ricardo looked at her sitting by her window and clenched his teeth.
But soon afterward, his cold eyes were frozen to Hilise.
“I don’t remember that.”
Hilise responded briefly in a monotonous tone.
“Are you denying even though there are more than two witnesses?”
As soon as Ricardo returned home, Gabrielle cried again and expressed her resentment and regret to him.
Fortunately, what he heard was the shock that Gabrielle had received from the daytime events, rather than her leaking the news of Hilise’s awakening.
After being shocked by her fiancée’s sudden change of attitude and her father scolding her, Ricardo was even more surprised that she was attacked by Hilise and fell from high ground.
Moreover, Gabrielle’s trembling body, due to the aftereffects, had directed Ricardo to Hilise’s room.
Hilise’s unshakable eyes gazed silently into Ricardo’s chilled face.’
Still, he could not tolerate all the factors that caused tears in Gabrielle’s eyes.
“I guess our standards are very different.”
Before long, an emotionless voice emanated from Hilise’s small lips.
“This is what I think an attack is.”
At that very moment, sharp energy rushed towards Ricardo, as if trying to swallow him.
