The Tyrant's Beloved Doll - Chapter 42
“This wrecked bitch!-“
Honestly he wasn’t thinking about taking any action like that from the start.
Eton just nonchalantly watched the quarrel between Sezh and Lillian. Therefore, he just somewhat already guessed precedently that Sezh’s life at The Imperial Palace was lacking smoothness.
However, isn’t it too much? How can that girl browbeat Sezh to that rate.
Frankly speaking. On Eton’s eyes, Lillian and Sezh were peas in the pot. They were the same. Both Lillian and Sezh were The Princesses of Delhender, it was confirmed by their blonde hair and sapphire eyes. One thing that distinguished them only is that the one who was being fierce one now was holding in his awful secret, that fact was only known by her.
By some means, Eton assumed that Sezh would be pleading, crying, and asking her sister for mercy. He didn’t know why Sezh was acutely hated by that girl. But in this situation, the best choice that she have to do is begging for forgiveness as soon as possibIe or she would literally die. It was the same choice that Eton saw everybody who got to suffer this kind of situation would do. Everyone except for no one.
“Why should we die? We did nothing wrong!”
On the contrary, Sezh unusually screamed back at Lillian. With her beyond the shambles frame, Sezh raised her voice like she was getting some fresh spirits. While watching the scene, Eton mumbled with a small voice.
“The fierce kid is interesting anyway.”
“In the end, you and that Raytan will end up the same. When Brother finally becomes an emperor, he would definitely kill both of you first!”
Ah, so it’s all that again. That Raytan kid.
Somehow, his curiosity kept growing bigger. Inside The Delhender’s Imperial wall that was full of blonde, a black-haired kid was born. Honestly, Eton didn’t believe Sezh’s story about a-cursed-person-treatment at all.
In the first place, there were so many things in that legend that mismatched with what originally happened.
Of course the thing about unconventional one is true. But Eton didn’t think about the story seriously. It’s because it really sounded like a whole-hog exaggeration.
A poor child with black hair and red eyes that unluckily was born in The Imperial Family where such a distorted legend existed. That’s why the kid was named Raytan, the name which its actual meaning was lost and instead replaced with a cursed person. Eton was briefly presumed that it was just all that.
The uproar was not hovered for too long. A black-haired teen appeared by running. Black hair, so that’s our main character, Raytan, right. Eton wanted to see him.
Raytan, who Eton only could see the parts of his back line, threw away Lillian and helped Sezh to stand.
“I will not let this out! You two think you can get out of this situation?!”
Lillian who is completely in anger shouted loudly. Eton remembered when he got a load of Raytan and Sezh condition days before today, he was aware that they were treated in such an inhospitality way here. Apparently, they got the special package one from that vicious bitch.
She is really an ugly evil bitch, I see.
When Eton pondered those thoughts, Raytan suddenly grabbed that evil bitch’s face strongly. The bitch’s face turned to be so pale and blue. Perhaps it’s because Raytan was swearing at her or threatening her or both or maybe not both of them.
Eton, who was looking behind Raytan and Sezh, burst into laughter without knowing it. Two kids who got bad treatment. One is fighting by a messed up war of words. Oppositely, the other one preferred to do more physical actions while swearing than words. The two of them truly were an unmatched pair.
However, Kid that has guts is cute. Eton liked that kind of kid.
So, he did that.
In time when Lillian’s scream was spreading over the entire area, Eton looked back at Sezh. She was putting up an expression like if it was interpreted would mean ‘What did you do?!.’
Why, I literally just helped you. Shouldn’t you be happy?
While replied those words just in his head, finally he saw the face of ‘Brother Raytan’ that Sezh often mentioned. Raytan turned his head to the place where Eton was staying.
… Eton saw it perfectly.
The cracking sound of rolling fingers filled up the empty room. It was Eton’s long standing habit. If there’s anything that bothers him or whenever he thinks about something solemnly. It ran out without his own knowledge.
Black hair, crimson eyes. The cursed ki-
Eton recalled pieces of his memory about what Sezh said back in time. His scarlet eyes inspected meticulously to the outside. The palace, where the turmoil had subsided, was quiet. It felt like nothing happened here before. However, Eton was too occupied to observe Raytan behind the window.
Eton mumbled to his own self. He wasn’t talking about Raytan resembling him. Of course there were still some parts where Raytan had the same ‘outline’ as him. However, his heart was pounding hardly not because of that.
He was resembling… that woman…
That bloody scarlet eyes were resembling him but his features were definitely after that woman. The only person that he will never forget from a long time ago. That woman… he could see half of her in that kid. That woman and… himself.
No, is this just a mere coincidence…? Eton shook up his head. There’s no way there will be a kid that will look like both of them. Beside that, isn’t the time already passed greatly long?
But the name?
This. Is this only a coincidence?
From all of things now there was a child that was similar to him and that woman. Plus, all of the names, what was it again the name that the child had?
Eton chewed his own lips, still constantly put his watch on the outside of the window. Over the unstained crystal clear window, there were bloody red eyes that were similar to Raytan beheld.
It was so chaotic.
First of all, If she had to explain about Lillian’s condition now… At least she knew now that the fire that was produced from magic was a very lasting product. It chose to stubbornly burn even if the maids already tried to do everything to turn it out.
“My Goodness! Oh Lord!”
The maids were so busy trying to turn the burn off.
While going on a mess with her head, one thing that Lillian didn’t forget at the time was keep shouting at Raytan. She was even swearing at him.
“Turn it out! I said turn it out!”
“You can’t turn it out?!”
“You lowly life!”
Sezh couldn’t even hold the situation anymore.
However, Lillian seems to be deeply convinced that the malefactor of the existing fire on her hair is Raytan. Blabbering, gibberish, Lillian was doing that while keep shouting. Because it never stopped, Sezh and Raytan were clueless put down at an awkward situation and couldn’t leave the place.
Raytan scanned Lillian for a very instant second. Flashly, he grabbed her by the collar again and started to carelessly brought her. He walked down towards the front of the builded fountain.
Raytan light-heartedly tossed away Lillian to the fountain.
The fire was permanently quenched, Lillian who was flooded and drowned by the water now had a more wretched appearance in comparison to Sezh. After her face could reach to the surface, she breathed hardly using all parts of her lungs. That day, Raytan looked more monstrous than the monster on the tail itself. Every single soul who was watching that scene reflexively freezed under that disastrous human being. Doubtlessly, Sezh was also included.
“This bastard! What did you just have done!”
Surprised, Lillian, who couldn’t even express her anger more, screaming in madness, even now there were tears emerging down from her eyes. However, Raytan blew up a drop-dead answer.
“You asked me to turn it out.”
Lillian suddenly became a mute. Sezh was petrified. It’s because this was the first time Lillian tasted something so terrifying like that. Lillian already had various ways to torment her on a daily basis, so what will she do to get a ‘revenge’ after this kind of misery.
Raytan seems genuinely unbothered by that mess. He just ignored it and walked back towards Sezh while acting like he was searching for something and picked it up.
The thing that Raytan was trying to find and brought is a book, the one that Sezh asked before ‘The Wizards of Delhender’. In this kind of situation, he instead handed over her a book… If she should be crying or laughing, Sezh didn’t know what kind of expression she had to release now.
“Now, let’s go.”
One hand to hold the book and one another hand to hold Raytan,’s hand tightly. She just … Scared. Obviously Lillian wouldn’t stay still about this kind of incident. She clearly was furious enough. In addition, Yerena also will know about her friendship with Raytan soon.
However, the most worry-worthy thing in her head right now is she couldn’t assure what kind of form Raytan will be. Sezh hoped Raytan wouldn’t fall into a troubling hardship because of her today. But did Raytan know what’s in her mind or not, she couldn’t be sure. He just spoke comfortably and walked along beside her.
“That book is not fun. I already read it.”
Her gloomy face didn’t fade away even until they arrived at her palace. Sezh sure maybe she could die from worry. She thought that by the time mentioned, today’s accident would definitely already be passed down to Yulia’s ears.
Sezh hesitated, she asked Raytan with a careful manner.
“I’m sorry. Because of me… “
“Because you helped me, the situation turned out to be like this. It’s clear there will be a big trouble coming… “
“If you didn’t come to me before… No, it will be better if we do not see each other again… “
Obviously, the fire on Lillian’s hair was Eton’s personal work. If she knew everything is gonna be like this, she would just listen to Luna. It’s because she uselessly followed him today. The late burst of guilt overfilled Sezh. Sezh lowered her head down.
“But if we stop meeting, you won’t be able to get the tutoring tomorrow.”
“You wouldn’t have known if your aphasia might have relapsed again.”
“Don’t you want the tutoring? It will be good to take the lesson while eating cakes together next time.”
Sezh abruptly lifted her head. Why did he unexpectedly bring that conversation?
If she could tell it bluntly. She absolutely wouldn’t be surprised if Raytan would say things like ‘Why are you always coming to bother and annoy people out,’ ‘If my mom didn’t request it, I wouldn’t even want to face bitch like you in the first place.’
In addition to that, she knew it too well that Raytan was never counterattacked all the bullying approaches that he suffered like this. He just dealt it with silence. The times when the dogfight happened, he was angry by what Bern said. But today’s occasion was different. There was nothing relevant for him to put in contribution at today’s fight.
Rather than blame her, he instead took out those words. Sezh tightening her hug to the book that was given by Raytan in her arms. What should she do. Sezh tried hard to hold back her tears to not flow down from her watery eyes.
“So about those stu- … weird things. Don’t ever think to sa-”
Raytan couldn’t finish his sentence. It’s because of Luna who was coming urgently with an apprehensive face.
“Ma-Master Raytan …. and also Princess …”
As soon as she saw Luna’s face, Sezh had guessed what it was. She already said that this problem is gonna be the massive one. It looks like that guess was correct.
“Lady Yulia is … A-asking for responsibility. The Lady wants you to come. Both Princess and Master Raytan …”
Yulia Lilan. Bern and Lilian’s mother. She hated Raytan and Lize to the death. And also the person who treated Yerena and Sezh like they were barren things.
Striking fear came into her heart, Sezh’s eyes were shaking like a leaf.
