The Villainess Will Leave Without Any Regrets - Chapter 69
Did she overdo it these days? It wasn’t as though she would collapse unexpectedly like this…….
She actually said that after she came to Timur, she had experienced chronic headaches. Abella would occasionally take pills like Enosh ate candy.
But what did she think about?
She couldn’t remember.
The bed she lay on was supremely soft.
‘Why are you sick? Do you know how surprised I was? Now when I go back, I might get my ass kicked by my father.’
A playful male voice filled her ears. It was familiar…….
It happened the other day while she was incapacitated for two days because of a fever. When she opened her eyes, there was a man who sat in a chair with his legs crossed on the bed reading a book.
His posture and voice was familiar.
‘Who was it……’
She felt her mind steadily growing clearer. Abella’s name popped up just before she was brought to reality…
Abella opened her eyes.
Someone talking to the doctor in the corner turned his head toward her.
Arsene ran in a rush.
Arsene invoked Abella’s memories of the past. This happened before as well. Arsene cared for sick Abella as her sweet and warm friend, lover, and fiance.
‘…… This has happened before.’
Abella smiled, feeling her eyes moisten, and buried her face in the pillow.
For some reason, she felt like her tears would escape.
“I have something for your Majesty.”
The Emperor was at a dinner with diplomatic envoys. No one was allowed to intervene at the Emperor’s dinner, but there was an exception: the emperor’s secret informants.
Burke, who stood next to the emperor, nodded.
It must have been urgent for the agent to come to Cade without asking for an audience first. Only the informants could handle such urgent matters in the present state, and among them were those associated with Abella.
Cade nodded. The one who stood in the position of Burke’s way was, as expected, an informant in league with Abella. He bowed his head, speaking in a small voice, but the surroundings were so quiet that all could hear.
“Lady Abella has collapsed.”
The news fell to Cade as well, meaning that many of Cade’s eyes were planted around her.
Cade, raising his eyebrows during his meal, beckoned to Burke.
“Bring me that magician bastard.”
“Oh, Your Majesty…!”
It was a diplomatic dinner, but the unstoppable Cade swore instead of eating. Burke shook his hand and glanced over the table. Some of the diplomatic envoys, despite knowing that Cade was quite fiery, dropped their utensils.
Were they scared?
Actually, Burke was too.
Burke struggled with a futile smile.
“How about doing this after the meal?”
Burke whispered desperately, his plea written all over his expression.
“The magician will be there even after you finish your meal.”
However, Burke laughed awkwardly, realizing that he couldn’t stall Cade any longer. After all, Cade was the only emperor of the Charope Empire.
The diplomatic envoys who ran a long way to meet the emperor of Charope were unfortunate, but Cade had an absolute proposition that was more important than anything else, and it was none other than Abella Amerigo. He didn’t know what relationship the collapsed Abella had with the magician, but he just hoped that it was not a big deal.
Claiming he lost his appetite, Cade rose from his seat and stormed out of the dining room. Trailing after him, his servants urgently moved on, and the remaining envoys were left to Burke.
Cade’s behavior was, of course, quite impolite, but he was the emperor who ruled the continent, so there was no one to reprimand him for such rudeness.
“When will the next interview be scheduled?”
“I have something I must tell him.”
“I know that there is still the grain that was distributed to the northern granary in the past year! Now, as you know, our kingdom…”
“Tomorrow! He will see you again tomorrow. As soon as today’s work is finished, we will send a messenger to the detached palace to schedule an interview tomorrow. I’m going to tell the attendants to take care of this evening…”
“Who the hell is Abella?”
Burke sharply cautioned him.
“Don’t speak that name if you would like to meet His Majesty the Emperor again! Don’t you need grain to fill the northern granary?”
Even before, he watched Cade toss everything aside and run hastily. Burke clicked his tongue.
The diplomatic envoy who came to his attention lost his voice. In fact, the one to be criticized right now was Cade, who broke his promise. However, since he was the invincible emperor of the land, nothing could come out of scolding him. All of the imperial castle were the eyes of the emperor.
If so, the next subject of criticism was Abella, from their point of view. They desired information on Abella, the source of the emperor’s sensitive reaction.
A severe warning fell on them.
“Remember that His Majesty’s eyes and ears are everywhere. That name is erased from your head from now on.”
Burke grinned, slitting his neck with his index finger.
