The Tamed Heiress - Chapter 1.2
Dana blinked her big eyes once. She asked again if she heard it wrong. However, she soon read the answer from Rian’s face, which had little change in expression.
The marriage partner was not herself.
“What are you talking about? Rian…”
Dana felt a sense of distance and stepped back a little. But this time Rian stuck close to her, and Dana stepped back even more. Soon her back touched the wall.
Rian’s face did not contain any sorry feelings. But he didn’t even put on a straight face. He was raising his mouth with a fishy face full of a little joy.
“The Duke of Hamilton had a good view of me since a long time. I’ve been dating the young lady for a year. If I marry her, I’ll be able to wear her wings and fly higher.”
“…Rian, Rian… What the heck…”
Dana grabbed the hem of the dress tightly. Her hands trembled and looked at Rian as if she couldn’t believe it.
“You can’t do this to me… Rian.”
Rian held Dana’s shoulder tightly with both hands.
“I know you helped me a lot. But money is just money. You’re not a noble.”
“Is that what you want to say now? I’m the one who made you a noble.”
Rian made a dry sound.
“Dana, you have to say it right away. It’s possible because even if it’s only half the blood of the noble flowed in the first place.”
Dana looked at him speechless with an amazing look. Then, as if she remembered, she reached out her palm to Rian.
“Give it back to me.”
He knew right away what it meant, but Rian did not respond easily. Instead, he began to soothe her, softening her determined tone.
“Dana, listen to me for a second. I’m not saying I’m going to abandon you. We’re going to stay the same way we are now. It’ll be hard right after marriage, but when the situation stabilizes, I’ll come to you from time to time..”
“Do you want me to be your mistress?”
Dana spoke in a trembling voice and headed her watery eyes at him.
Rian looked coldly at her, who was at a loss for anger and sadness, and recited it low as if she knew it.
“You don’t like it? That’s the best you can do”.
“Rian, you can’t do this to me. Think about it again, Rian. I’ve loved you so much so far….”
“Yeah, I know, I know. Enough to make that door. We were the only ones coming in and out of that door, right?”
Rian pointed to the door he had entered. It was covered with curtains, so it was hard to tell at first glance whether it was a door.
Rian wanted to hide his relationship until the time came, so it was a secret passage that Dana made for him.
“You know that… Rian, give it back to me… ! I can’t give it to you!”
Dana reached out to search his arms. However, Rian simply grabbed the hand and put her body closer together.
“Dana. You have a loud voice, they’ll hear everything outside.”
“What’s so important now…”(Sighs)
Rian hurriedly closed her mouth with his palm. When his large body weighed down, Dana couldn’t move.
In the meantime, the hand that was arresting Dana came up and stroked her blonde hair one by one, muttering low, facing her eyes very closely.
“Dana, our pretty Dana, you will be the only woman in my life who is as beautiful as this. No matter what anyone says, your face can’t keep up with any woman. Yeah, that’s a shame.”
Rian expressed an unexpected compliment for a very long time as if he was disappointed.
At first glance, at the touch of him stroking affectionately in a sighing tone, she couldn’t notice it even when he was right in front of her.
His eyes were shining with life.
“Dana, why didn’t you just love me more, to the point where you’re blind, so if you’re just a mistress, I’ll just..….”
It was a time when the sound of speech was cut off, and his smile, which was hanging thin, completely disappeared.
Dana felt something and tried to get away from him.
“Ughh Let go… Rian! Oh my god!”
“Shh, it’s noisy, Dana.”
Rian’s big hand pressed Dana’s thin neck hard and grabbed her. Drunk Dana tried to hit him like crazy and push him away, but it was useless.
She looked at Rian with frightened eyes. Rian smiled with his eyes bent thin.
“The dress suits you very well today, Dana.”
Her legs were completely floating on the floor, led by Rian’s grasp. The veins turned red like bursting on the white of blue eyes.
“I’ll use the things you gave me well, too. Even that power of attorney. I will never use it in vain. Don’t worry.”
Looking at Dana in pain, Rian calmly conveyed his last words.
“To be honest, I’m sad. There is no woman who satisfies my lower limbs as much as you. I still can’t believe it.”
Dana glanced down and smiled, kicking him and pinching him with her fingernails. However, his limbs gradually slowed down and she lost strength.
“But I think you’re going to get in the way now. Sorry, Dana. I need you to disappear now.”
Blue eyes full of resentment disappeared under the eyelids with tears in them.
Rian slowly lowered her completely limp body to the floor. Measuring the trajectory outside the door, he opened the curtain and wrapped Dana’s body around it.
He opened the door and looked around, carried Dana around his shoulder, and hurried out of there.
Only Rian and Dana knew that Rian had been here today.
