Ten Ways to Get Dumped by a Tyrant - Chapter 13
As soon as Scarlett got to the mansion, she quickly entered.
The duke, who had been on edge, was about to slap her in the face.
‘Why are you hitting me?’
Scarlett decided she should run.
After she dodged his attacks, the duke quickly wore out, much like a fat pig.
She should’ve told him, “Don’t be rude to the emperor’s fiance.”
Until Scarlett got dumped, that phrase could protect her to some extent.
‘I should run after I get dumped.’
“Ah, Young Lady? What is this?!”
“Lucy! Take this!”
Without closing the door, Scarlett took off her dress.
“Ah, how refreshing.”
She quickly handed it to Lucy.
“Is this wine?!”
“Things happened! If you can’t wash it, then it’s okay to throw it away.”
After seeing Lucy’s confused expression, Scarlett ran into the bathroom.
Then, after taking a quick bath, she collapsed onto my bed with a thud.
‘Oh, what was a rewarding day!’
The next morning…
Scarlett happily started writing letters.
“To Your Majesty, the supreme sun, moon, water, wind, flowers, trees, birds, and so on of Caliord.”
It’d be nice if he broke up with her already.
It wasn’t that she didn’t expect it. Unfortunately, it was unlikely that things would go so easily for Scarlett.
She needed to use the proper lines and continue the act.
It was important for her to maintain the impression of a harmless madman because the tyrant was a very cautious person.
Scarlett was going to write a letter with that premise in mind.
The contents of the letter were simple enough.
“I have to decide when we should meet.”
The emperor and his fiance are obliged to meet several times a month.
In addition, they had to keep records of their meeting.
It was no different from public romance.
Scarlett sent a letter with all kinds of rhetoric and suggested a date that they meet.
‘I shouldn’t be too annoying. I also wrote that the first date’s place and date will be adjusted to His Majesty’s needs.’
Very good. Smart.
Scarlett smiled proudly and wrote the letter.
How would he react?
If he replied promptly, that would mean that yesterday’s actions had left a relatively weak impact on him.
She had to think of something even crazier.
He would probably ask to see her in the palace, right?
“Ugh, I wish he would just break up with me already.”
Then, Scarlett would be able to focus on making money and run away from home using the little wealth her mother had left her.
After writing the letter, Scarlett called out to Lucy.
“Yes, Young Lady?”
“Will you bring my ledger?”
Scarlett needed to check something.
Scarlett’s mother, the previous duchess, had left some property for Scarlett after passing away.
“Here you go.”
Her mother’s family was completely ruined, so the former duchess had only a small amount of property to pass on.
Still, Scarlett in the original used it to torment Cheryl secretly.
That meant that Scarlett was still wealthy enough to hire other people and get high-quality medicine.
Of course, after using up all her expenses, Scarlett borrowed money from the elders of the Armand family.
Because of that, the elders of her family had been charged with the crime of helping Scarlett Armand.
Lucy’s face distorted when she heard Scarlett’s thanks, and she placed a cup of tea beside her.
“Oh, thank you.”
After saying thank you again, Scarlett turned back to the ledger.
As expected, the amount was as vague.
‘It’s not enough money to leave the dukedom and become independent.’
It seemed that Scarlett could buy information from time to time and occasionally purchase some high-end poisons.
From now, Scarlett had to start earning money properly.
Fortunately for her, Scarlett could make a lot of money out of this small amount.
To be precise, it was a barren land called a cradle.
It was abandoned because the magic power didn’t work.
If magic didn’t work, it was difficult to build a building without magic, and there were no buried resources.
‘It is known as a safe land for both animals and plants.”
Usually, this safe zone was where humans can hardly reach, like the forest of monsters, only the safe zone around the imperial palace was different.
