Untouchable Lady - Chapter 14
Translator and Editor: Effe and Nabi
As soon as Ricardo instinctively evaded, a tremendous roar broke through the air and struck his ear.
The tip of his red hair, scattered in the air, was cut off helplessly.
It was dazzling, as the bright red petals mixed with the red blood drops scattered across the field of view.
Ricardo, who had evaded, looked back and saw a sharp thorny vine that had pierced where he had been standing a while ago, biting behind him like a green snake.
At the same time, fragments of the broken wall fell over.
Dried blood spilled along the long scar on Ricardo’s cheek.
It might have been really dangerous if he was too slow to avoid it.
This was the first time facing Hilise’s power head on, which was stronger than expected.
But what was most shocking was the fact that Hilise attacked him.
Ricardo turned his stiff face towards Hilise, who was still sitting quietly by the window.
Hilise still had an indifferent face as if she didn’t do something a while ago.
It roughly scraped Ricardo’s Feelings.
“What is this? Are you crazy?!”
Hilise said to Ricardo, who was frozen in his seat.
“I just had to show it to you myself because I don’t think you can understand with just words.”
Ricardo opened his lips, trying to oppose what she said.
However, the moment he felt the intense energy lurking around Hilise, the words that struck his throat were swallowed up.
“If I really attacked her, there’s no way she would come out unscathed.”
Is this really the power of someone who has just awakened?
Surprisingly, Hilise already seemed to be able to use her power freely.
Seeing that she had not been awakened for too long, she indeed had amazing potential.
At that very moment, Ricardo felt a strange feeling inside his heart that he never thought he would ever experience in his life.
The power that Ricardo never doubted would be his for as long as he’s been alive.
However, now it was inherited by his sister, Hilise, not him. The evidence was shown in front of him.
In an instant, Ricardo’s face was filled with complicated feelings of faint anger and loss.
Hilise also saw it.
Probably if it were in the past, she would’ve been more considerate to Ricardo.
But now, no matter what Ricardo was thinking, it didn’t matter to Hilise.
Though, unexpectedly, the deepest engraving in Ricardo’s mind at this moment seemed to be something else.
Subsequently, a heavy voice echoed in the room full of silence.
“…If I hadn’t avoided it, I could have been seriously injured.”
Still, Ricardo’s tone sounded as if it didn’t matter.
Hilise saw it and laughed unknowingly.
Even Ricardo saw the thin laugh come from her small lips.
Hilise also answered him with her eyes saying. ‘I don’t care if you get hurt’.
Ricardo’s mouth, who understood it, became tighter.
“You, why the hell are you doing this?”
Ricardo unwittingly spoke out the words that were inside his head.
Hilise had apparently been weird these days.
He felt as if she had become someone else suddenly. Above all, her attitude towards him and their father has changed significantly.
Not only that.
Last time, there was even a case of her jumping through the window in front of their father’s eyes.
When did Hilse’s personality change?
He didn’t have to think for a long time because the answer came to his mind right away. It was said that it was after Hilise manifested her powers.
From the time Ricardo saved Gabrielle by leaving her in front of the rushing monster.
“It’s ridiculous to think that.”
Then, Hilise said that as if she had read his mind.
“How come everything coming out of your mouth is so stupid? Was your brain always this bad?”
The words coming out of her mouth were incredibly venomous, but it was surprisingly devoid of any emotion. For some reason, at this moment, Hilise, with neither blame nor resentment, felt grimmer than ever.
Hilise’s words weren’t hurtful nor repulsive.
Still, he swallowed it down. Ricardo clenched his fist with the feeling of being accused.
“…That time in the garden was a mistake.”
But he doesn’t feel like this is an excuse.
“I didn’t deliberately leave you behind.”
After saying that, Ricardo became more ashamed than before.
“I was just in a hurry then…”
It was then that Hilise’s dry voice cut off Ricardo’s words that were about to continue.
“As I said last time, I’m not interested in your excuses. Why don’t you find someone else if you need to confess?”
Hilise stood up from her seat as she had no desire to listen to him anymore.
“There are a lot of people around you, who will be willing to listen.”
Hilise got up from the window and walked away. She gradually got closer to Ricardo, who was standing in the middle of the room.
As the distance narrowed, Ricardo’s body got stiffer and stiffer, but Hilise passed by him.
“No matter how absurd it sounds, there’s someone who will always nod and agree with what you’re saying, saying it’s all right.”
The last words Hilise said cut through Ricardo.
Leaving Ricardo behind, Hilise walked towards the door.
“May, I’m moving rooms.”
“Yes, yes! I will prepare the best room!”
May, who had been standing against the wall and couldn’t take a breath, quickly moved and opened the door for Hilise.
May was acting fast with both feet, as if in the past she hadn’t been neglecting Hilise, suddenly becoming her loyal maid.
As Hilise stepped out of the door, the employees who had been stumbling to sneak a look at the situation were startled and gasped because of her.
May quickly told them something.
“My Lady, I prepared a room on the fourth floor with the best view.”
May followed Hilise, who walked ahead of her, guiding her to the room.
“I am feeling hungry.”
Hilise said as she felt hungry.
Strangely, in this life, no matter how much she ate, she kept feeling empty.
“I’ll go to the kitchen so I can find you something to eat right away!”
May knew her master’s nerves were thin so she replied quickly.
Hot dishes were quickly prepared to go to her newly appointed room.
A while ago, it was rumored that Hilise used her abilities to destroy her room, so they prepared the food on the most luxurious dining table, trying to please her.
May looked at Hilise with nervous eyes.
Perhaps Hilise might not like her menu, May was worried that she would use her vines and break the table as before.
There was only a little bit of damage to her room, but it was hilarious that May had already treated her as a dangerous beast without reins.
Hilise spoke while eating the food served on the table with an expressionless face.
“Yes!” A quick answer followed.
However, the words that subsequently came from Hilise was not something May expected.
“How many days left until the ball in Kalykia that Gabrielle decided to attend?”
“There are only three days left.”
May respond politely, feeling her doubts.
Since then, Hilise hasn’t asked any other questions.
So, in the beginning, May, who thought, ‘Does Lady Hilise ever think about attending there?’, quickly erased the thought.
Since there are only three days left till the ball, it is clear that there will not be enough time to prepare for it now, so she thought it could be a mistake because Hilise didn’t say anything about it.
But just as May suspected, Hilise was going to go to Kalykia.
Even though she wasn’t going to attend the ball, of course.
Three days from now.
Hilise pushed her faint memories from her old days away and ordered May to clear the table after the meal.
