I Fell for the Temptation of the Evil Crown Prince - Chapter 27
I’m Scared of My Late First Love (5)
Rowena sighed and looked at Pina.
“Don’t cry, I’m the one bleeding. What are you crying about?”
“Oh, I’m not crying. You’re not crying. How can I…”
Unlike her words, tears were dripping from Pina’s eyes. She knew the count had been doing this for a long time, but now that Rowena has captured the crown prince’s heart, she never knew this would ever happen again.
“The Count is too much.”
There was no way to hold back the tears in her heart. When she first saw this, she saw the opportunity and wondered whether she would throw the count off the stairs or kill him by waiting by the window and throwing a vase on his head.
But she hesitated because she didn’t want to kill such a troll and pay for her crime.
What kind of man in the world uses his fist on his own child?
“Don’t do this and tell your Highness. Your Highness will stop him from doing this again!”
“That I got beaten by my father?”
Rowena had a smile around her mouth.
Can I say that? Will they believe me? What a disgrace it will bring.
Cecil’s kindness to her was considered sincere and might try to help her. But Rowena didn’t want Cecil to find out. She thought she would want to die if she ever saw a sympathetic expression in his eyes.
“No, I won’t tell him. How can I look like this…? I just have to hang in there for a few days now. I’m afraid… but he won’t kill me.”
Cecil, who was listening to the voice at the door of the carriage, gritted his teeth. The servant followed Paul, and only a coachman remained in the carriage. The quick-witted horseman just lay flat, holding his breath.
Why aren’t you telling me!
He was a man who had almost everything in the world. He had the might to become the emperor of the largest empire on the continent, and he could move a mountain if Rowena wanted.
If you have such a noble person in your hand, and you already have him, why don’t you ask for help?!
He understood the feeling that she didn’t want to show her face, but he couldn’t respect that feeling. If something happened to Rowena, he had to know it himself.
The door of the carriage suddenly opened.
Rowena was seated in the carriage chair with a tired face. Pina had been putting makeup on Rowena’s face. He didn’t expect Paul to hit Rowena, and obviously, he did not allow expensive potions to be used on Rowena.
Both women were startled. Holding her breath, Pina looked at Cecil and then Rowena again.
Cecil walked into the carriage like a beast. There was no sound of footsteps and his movement was calm.
He removed half the makeup from Rowena’s face. Cecil’s face froze when he saw the bruise.
I’ll kill you.
Cecil’s complexion went dark as he saw black bruises from how harshly she had been beaten during the short journey from the Count Estate to the opera house. It had been a long time since he felt like he was about to lose his mind in anger.
“Lancelot, call the healer and have her heal her.”
Rowena paused and looked at Cecil’s back, hesitating. If she remained quiet, something terrible would happen, but the distance between them was already too great to catch him.
Rowena didn’t know how to vent Cecil’s anger.
It was also the first time she saw him this angry. Cecil wasn’t this angry when she told him that his fiancée liked another man.
What should I do?
While hesitating, Cecil went out of sight. Rowena tried to chase after Cecil, but Pina quickly caught her.
“You don’t have to do anything. Leave it to His Majesty! Where are you going with bruises on your face?”
There was no one in the parking area now. This was not the first time this had happened because the coachman had taken the carriage to a secluded spot in the theater parking lot.
In addition, the knights of the crown prince remained near the carriage to prevent anyone from peeking.
“Just think about you, my lady. Please. I beg you.”
Pina begged, embracing Rowena’s arm. Rowena stared blankly at Pina.

Marquis Milena left and Paul was taken to the lounge in the theater, at the hands of the imperial knights. It was a waiting room for the royal family. If it were usual Paul, he would have been proud that he had set foot in the royal space, but not now.
Rowena, Rowena, she isn’t going to tell the Crown Prince everything, is she?
Pina was good, but she couldn’t put on makeup quickly. So he thought maybe the crown prince might notice if he saw Rowena getting organized.
If he had any honor, I would be able to stop the crown prince. Besides, I am his father-in-law. What can he do to me?
Rumor had it that the crown prince adored Rowena so much.
Can’t anyone tell just by looking at the gifts that came to me as a count!
They were items that made his eyes wide open at a glance. Paul regretted not being able to sell it.
Therefore, even if he was dissatisfied with him, he would only scold him right now and would not punish him.
The engagement ceremony is close!
But it was just scary.
Isn’t this going to make the engagement a non-existent one?
Paul didn’t think it was wrong for his parents to discipline their children, but if he saw the scene, he thought it would be a shame that he would no longer take Rowena as his wife.
If that’s the case, it’s a big deal…
