The Villainess Will Leave Without Any Regrets - Chapter 68
Arsene couldn’t hide his dark face after the conversation with Grand Madam Sirius.
His face was dark as he could not sleep well yesterday. Even though he was on his way to meet Abella, he was not excited at all.
The foolish heart used to flutter every time.
‘Please break up with Lady Abella.’
The words his mother said yesterday rang in his ears.
Break up with Abella.
Grand Madam Sirius did not tell him the proper story. She only repeated that it would be better to do so. She also added that it was dangerous.
She didn’t want Arsene to be hurt by Abella.
But, on the contrary…
“Abella will get hurt without me.”
Arsene clenched his teeth.
Why wouldn’t people leave Abella alone? Abella was no longer at peace.
‘Not everyone can be forgiven just because of your ignorance, Arsene.’
Cade’s voice intertwined with his mother’s voice.
What was right?
Cade was certain it was for Abella, and Grand Madam Sirius was certain it was for Arsene. And now, if Arsene and Abella broke up, it would be Abella who would be hurt.
So, was Cade wrong?
Arsene scratched his head.
In front of the stubborn Arsene, Grand Madam Sirius ended up crying. The fragile Arsene was forced to say that he would consider it, but he had no intention of breaking up with Abella.
Had they not been able to face each other and smile?
Today was the day he decided to go out with Abella and show her to the world.
As if she was waiting for him, Abella, who was guarding the porch, called him.
She wore a dress that matched her dark silver hair and purple eyes, a white dress full of pearls that exuded an air of mystery. Abella was one with an excellent eye and knew how to maximize what she had. Now, she resembled a goddess of the moon.
His worries up until then flew away.
Arsene reached out his hand like a foolish boy.
“I’ve been waiting. It’s a little late.”
Abella shook her head, stepping into the carriage filled with Arsene’s mature scent.
Arsene visited Abella before he had even finished his troubles with her.
An unfamiliar stillness permeated the air. Since neither would speak first, the meal they shared was awkward.
Although she had crossed the first mountain, it felt as though the next mountain was waiting. Her initial joy from Arsene’s greeting dissipated like a bubble. When Abella saw Arsene, her worries deepened.
She counted his intentions, pondering over his thoughts.
All things stem from doubts.
The little stone Cade threw at Abella had planted its seeds.
‘Don’t trust Arsene.’
Abella secretively glanced at Arsene.
“Arsene, you look stressed. I can’t even eat properly.”
“Oh… no. I just have a lot of work these days.”
However, Arsene put down the tableware as if he had no more plans to eat.
Today they came to a new restaurant. Abella, checking the menu board, noticed that Cade was right. It was too expensive.
Timur was unable to focus on luxury, so instead, they inflated costs of everyday things impossibly high. As Cade said, luxury was good for short-term profits, but in the long run, it was unreasonable.
Abella, lost in thought, came to her senses.
“Huh? Ah……. Shall we drink tea when we finish eating?”
“It looks like you have something to say to me… I have something to say too.”
“Something to say?”
Arsene waited for Abella to finish her meal. She told Arsene, who was free to go, stories about wandering in the market.
Perhaps they were trying to fill the gap between them.
The other day, there were so many stories to talk about. She didn’t have to tell such mundane stories.
Nevertheless, Arsene reminded Abella of the past.
Arsene’s kindness for the first time in a while made Abella unconsciously chuckle.
On another note…
Why was Arsene interested in her stories of wandering in the market? That was a little……
Rather, it was something Cade would like. Cade had an eager ear for the news of Bondi Street and enjoyed gossip like this.
No. Cade heard such a story from Abella…….
Arsene dropped his utensils and reached out to the trembling Abella. Fortunately, Abella stopped herself from falling from her chair.
Abella bent over from her sudden headache. Her head throbbed, and she felt sick to her stomach.
Cade. Past. Arsene. Her. The more she thought about those words, the worse the throbs became.
Abella inhaled, curling up.
“Waiter! Call a doctor!”
Abella’s consciousness flew further and further away.
