The Villainess Will Leave Without Any Regrets - Chapter 12
Arsene stared at Abella’s hand. Abella continued to hold out her desolate hand with a blank expression, trying to hide her embarrassment.
“Well, how are you?”
Arsene recited in a low voice.
The cold winter was contained in the emerald-colored eyes that resembled the sea.
Arsene spat out.
“I didn’t come here to exchange greetings like that, so stop playing around.”
Arsene’s cold words seemed to hammer Abella. Abella nodded awkwardly and slowly withdrew her hand.
Abella’s sweet lips were trembling.
“You came here because you have something to say. Sit there on the sofa. Shall I serve tea?”
Arsene sat on the sofa, and Abella sat across from him.
Obviously, she thought she had become strong enough to not lose to anyone, but standing in front of Arsene seemed to be disarming.
Abella, who commanded her relatives and employees, disappeared, leaving only the Abella of 15 years old, helpless and young.
She couldn’t protest against Arsene, probably because of the memories from their long past. Because of Arsene, who used to care for Abella like the bright and hot sun.
Even though they were buried in the past now, they were still memories for Abella.
Abella asked Arsene with a pale face.
“What brings you here?”
“……..I’m here to discuss the business that Carlo and I were going to do.”
“I guess you haven’t figured out the current situation in Amerigo yet.”
Abella took a sorrowful breath.
During the time Carlo was ill, their relatives turned the library upside down, and the papers were mixed up in a mess. After sorting them, she still couldn’t figure out everything about Amerigo.
However, she didn’t want to make such a nasty excuse.
Abella breathed slowly and admitted to her mistake.
“Sorry. I’m still lacking.”
Arsene, looking silently at Abella, opened his mouth.
“Carlo and I were thinking of opening up a new hotel chain by pioneering the zone of the west. We have already hired workers to pioneer the zone, and a hotel design was also available, but the owner of Amerigo was sick.”
It seemed to her that she had seen the related documents somewhere. Abella asked for patience and searched the table and brought the documents out. Arsene kindly waited for Abella to review the papers.
The Sirius family had risen to the number one leading company in hotel chains.
Carlo was supposed to invest in the new hotel chain of the Sirius family and own a five percent stake with the principal.
But that was all stopped when Carlo was sick.
‘This is why you’re here…..’
Abella’s heart sank at the thought that Arsene had come as a public obligation.
‘You can’t do this, Abella.’
Abella swallowed and cleared her heart.
She couldn’t show any lingering regret. It was Abella who abandoned Arsene.
She repeated that thought dozens of times in her mind.
“I came to talk about when I can start doing business again. Amerigo’s obituary is unfortunate, but there is a lot of work to be done.”
“I understand. I’ll send someone soon. We will be able to finance the money soon.”
Arsene nodded and stood up.
As if that’s the only thing he had to do. Abella unconsciously followed Arsene with her gaze. The cold back made Abella’s chest open. He smelled of light alcohol.
‘Did you drink?’
Ah. It’s not something she should care about….
Abella bit her lips.
Arsene, who walked without hesitation, paused before opening the door.
“Ah, are you back for real?”
A heavy low tone fell over Abella.
Upon hearing Abella’s answer, Arsene opened the door as if he had nothing more to hear.
Obviously there were things to be sorted between them, but there was no mention of it. As if he didn’t want to have a private conversation with Abella. Arsene’s back was cold, so she couldn’t hold onto it.
Abella rose up unknowingly and then sank back down.
She consciously forgot that Timur also had Arsene.
Abella gathered her breath.
The cold lingering in Arsene’s eyes plunged into Abella’s chest with a spike.
The last day she left Arsene, it was Abella who had nailed his chest, but she was the one with the pain.
As people point out, Abella may be selfish.
Arsene knew it would never change. No matter how painfully Abella had endured, she seemed to remain the same.
