I am the Precious Daughter of the Greatest Villain in the Fantasy World - Chapter 5
Almost half a year had passed since I last saw Aku Ryun.
‘Wow, it’s great to see this kid’
My god, how much did Bing Eun-seol abuse me that I wanted to see my would-be killer?
While smiling brightly, I raised my hand. In my hand was a flower that I had picked recently.
“…what is this?”
Sheesh, you speak really awkwardly. I’m six years old and you ask me “what is that”? “What is that?” so stiff…
On one hand, I was envious of him. When will I be able to speak fluently like that?
“… you are giving me this?”
Rather than accepting the flowers, Aku Ryun looked at me with a strange gaze.
“You seem to… understand my words.”
Huk! This monster! Since Bing Eun-seol wasn’t in sight, I must have relaxed too much without realizing.
“I was under the impression that Young Miss was only one year old…”
Acting as if I was distracted by a butterfly and chasing it with my eyes, I put my finger in my mouth and sucked on it. Maybe because my finger was covered by the bitter taste of grass, I started to drool automatically. Yup, this should be good enough of a performance, right?
Aku Ryun squinted. Avoiding his questioning eyes, I zealously acted like an idiot.
“Over there, bug.”
After hearing that, I jumped up like a spring. I’m good with a lot of things, bugs are not not one of them.
“Hm, even standing up? I heard that you were still crawling.”
Would you believe that I suddenly gained superhuman powers during a life or death situation due to this bug? I relaxed my legs and hesitantly sat down so it looked like a perfect coincidence. I can’t give up right now. I need to continue my performance. Giggling, I stuck a flower behind my ear. But Aku Ryun wasn’t fooled.
“You really aren’t an idiot.”
No, I’m really an idiot. What do I need to do for him to believe me? Do I need to take a shit here?
My heart raced. If he reveals my secret to everyone, what will I do? The truth that I’m a genius –
that’s what it’s gonna look like to others – what will I do if it is revealed?
Of course, Bing Yun-seol won’t keep ignoring me. Avoiding Aku Ryun eyes, I snapped the stems of the flowers.
Go away. Please go away. Aren’t you busy? You must be busy training, right?
Huh, in the past you gave the impression that you didn’t want to be near me, so why are you staying here so long?
After I had massacred the flowers near me for a while, Aku Ryun suddenly grabbed my hand.
Fuck! You scared the shit out of me!
I was so surprised that I almost bit the inside of my mouth. I need to be careful.
“Young Miss, I’m going to take a look at your hand.”
Aku Ryun looked at my fingernails with a serious expression. My fingernails were white, not a strong pink like a normal baby. Though they had started to change colors after being abused by Bing Eun-seol, I ignored the change because it wasn’t a big health issue. Well even if it was I didn’t have someone who could heal me.
Aku Ryun, who saw my fingernails, grabbed my wrist.
I felt something akin to a hot energy slowly penetrating my skin. It was like I was soaking in a hot spring. The cold energy that had been stuck in my body was heating up and my body began to melt.
The source of the warmth must have entered my body, without me realizing. When I came back to reality, I was grabbing Aku Ryun’s chest and was rubbing my face all over him. The spit that I had deliberately drooled due to the wind was all over his clothes.
Hut! I belatedly realized my disgusting state and froze. I could neither let go or keep hugging him. I was stuck between a rock and a hard place, actually scratch that. I was literally in the arms of death.
Thankfully, at that moment, Aku Ryun pushed me away roughly. I fell down letting out a very embarrassing sound.
Aku Ryun flinched.
Dude, I’m okay. Since it’s a flower garden, I wasn’t hurt.
“Young Miss…? Huh? Young Miss!”
Seoyoung hearing my voice had run over in great haste. She then picked me up.
“Young Miss! Are you okay? Are you hurt anywhere?”
This woman, like a crazy bitch, removed the flower stuck behind my ear, straightened out my clothes, and checked for injuries. Then she bowed and greeted Aku Ryun.
It was her way of rebellion.
“I greet Magyo’s successor, my lord”
“You, stick out your wrist.”
“Give me your wrist.”
If someone allowed a murim access to one’s wrist, the murim could pour his power into them to determine one’s level of power. In addition, the murim could use the same method to kill someone.
Tsk, in other words, letting a murim access your wrist was akin to revealing your history. It also meant that you have forfeited your life. Therefore, it was a very unpleasant request to hold one’s wrist unless it was between the teacher and the student. But in reality, the opposing party was a little kid and a nanny. Seoyeong hesitated a bit before extending her arm out, exposing her wrist.
Aku Ryun grabbed her hand without hesitation, closed his eyes, and focused. But let go after a few seconds.
“Is Madam visiting a lot recently?”
“That is so.”
“Recently I heard that Madam’s ice magic had become more powerful.”
“… It’s not something an amateur like me would be able to notice, sir”
He must have noticed! I don’t know how he knew, but I’m sure this monster knows what’s going on. He won’t just help me and then tattle on me to Cheonma, would he right?
Cheonma wasn’t a man who cared about anyone in the first place. Even if he cared, there was no way he would punish the daughter of the North Sea Palace. He would just ignore everything. But in the meantime, Bing Eun-seol would just kill me.
So don’t act like you know! I’m completely fine so don’t go around making a fuss! You just keep hating me like usual.
Aku Ryun stared at me. What are you hoping to discover by staring at my face? Without blinking, his black eyes wandered over my face. I wasn’t fazed at all so I kept my idiot face on.
“Can I hold the Young Miss?”
Like I weighed nothing, Aku Ryun picked me up lightly. Because I pretended to be a little kid, he whispered into my ear.
“Poor Young Miss”
“Welcome to hell.”
Ha, look at this guy with a twisted mind. Of course, I was hoping Aku Ryun would zip his lips. But that doesn’t mean he can enjoy my unhappiness. Are you feeling schadenfreude since you are also suffering like me?
This man… that won’t do. I’m gonna have to give him a hard time.
I grabbed his cheeks tightly and tried to beat him up. I definitely hit him, but why are my lips touching his lips?
My lips, covered with saliva, pressed on his lips and then dropped away.
With a light sound, a thin line of saliva stretched between his lips and my lips. The arms that were holding me slowly loosened. Aku Ryun froze like a stone statue.
“Oh, oh, Young Miss!”
Seoyoung quickly placed me down on the ground. Staring at my lips, Aku Ryun wiped his lips with the back of his hand. Then he turned around coldly, and an icy wind blew. He seemed to be quite angry.
Hey, it’s a little bit late to say this now but… I was trying to beat you up, not kiss you!
Of course, I did think my lips were beautiful. But I had only thought about this, I didn’t think we would actually kiss…!
I thought suddenly about the decisive reason why Aku Ryun killed Chun Lihua. Chun Lihua had a one-sided crush on Aku Ryun. Obviously, Aku Ryun rejected her, besides the matter of her being the enemy of his parents. But the problem was Chun Lihua’s nature.
Not being able to stand his rejection, she did some crazy stuff such as feeding him an aphrodisiac in order to have him. Since this was a novel for all ages, the detailed descriptions weren’t there. But it was well established that Aku Ryun almost developed a serious case of gynophobia from that.
But even the real Chun Lihua didn’t steal Aku Ryun’s first kiss.
‘Ah, I’m screwed’
Clearly I didn’t think it was truly a kiss. If I had to define it, wouldn’t it be like an accident? But would Aku Ryun agree with my reasoning? Considering his red ears earlier, I think it’s very unlikely.
‘How much has my life shortened today?’
Recalling earlier facial expressions, I’d say at least three years were lost… Well there’s nothing I can do about it. Today I’ll start to train myself how to walk. There’s no law that states that you can’t walk because you’re an idiot right?
From that day on, I gave up on crawling and earnestly practiced how to walk. The servants started to get annoyed. It was because as I started to walk, I began to cause little accidents. However, I continued to do what I needed to do. In addition, Aku Ryun did not tell anyone that I wasn’t truly an idiot nor that I was being abused.
