The Villainess Will Leave Without Any Regrets - Chapter 76
Yuri knocked on the door.
She knocked hard, but the door would not open no matter how much she knocked.
“I don’t think they’re inside.”
“How could it be? They’re just pretending not to be here.” Yuri muttered irritably and rattled the door knob. She didn’t know how many times she’d gone looking for them. It was not easy to hide her identity, but every time she got rejected at the door like this.
However, she wouldn’t simply go back today.
“I’ll wait out here until you open the door! That’s right! I’ll do it!”
Yuri raged and said aloud and sat down at the door. The mercenaries who followed her also shrugged their shoulders and sat around.
Hearing the crackling sound inside, there had to be a person there…
Yuri breathed a deep sigh and touched her chin. She knew she had to meet the person inside, but they just wouldn’t come out. She stomped her feet.
Yuri was sitting. By her side was a mercenary who had visited this house many times. The mercenary asked, “Who the hell is inside?”
“…The one who holds the key to the secret.”
“Which house are you from?”
“Amerigo, a person who is deeply related to Amerigo.”
Yuri looked back again.
Both Abella and Enoch were deeply troubled with different thoughts.
Throughout breakfast, they didn’t exchange a single word. Obviously, Enoch went outside on a day off, but Enoch didn’t have a comfortable face at all. Of course, that was the same with Abella.
Enoch rubbed his forehead.
‘Meet the emperor, prince. I will take care of what you said. Do I just need to buy the bonds?’
‘…… I’d rather change it……’
‘The prince is really….’
It was an euphemism. Enoch exhaled. It wouldn’t be easy to meet the emperor, but he would have an even harder time telling him the story. Enoch glanced at Abella.
Enoch chewed on his candy again, feeling like a stomachache was coming on again.
It seemed that the sweets for breakfast didn’t sit well in his stomach. Cade’s eyes fell on Abella.
Even now, Enoch was receiving glares from Cade for being with Abella. Cade seemed to have already figured out everything about Enoch, while Enoch didn’t know anything about Cade and Abella.
Enoch took another bite of the sweet candy again.
In addition, the difference in their status was also clear. Enoch was a prince, but Cade was the emperor who ruled the Charope Empire.
‘This is the first time I’m in such a disadvantage.’
He didn’t even think this would happen when he came to Timur. When he was wooing Abella… he was confident at first. He was confident that he knew Abella best, and he thought he would one day naturally stand by Abella’s side.
However, Enoch seemed to be growing away from Abella.
He has lived in his own good taste all this time.
But he couldn’t believe that he was now suffering from feelings of defeat and inferiority.
Besides, what about Duke Arsene?
He was gentlemanly in appearance, and his actions were also gentlemanly. When she went to see Arsene, he had witnessed Abella’s fluttering face several times. Enoch lost long before he even started.
Abella had some subtle feelings for Arsene. And Abella doesn’t even see Enoch as a man.
‘Ah… it’s really difficult.’
Enoch lowered his head in tears.
However, he was not in a position to disobey King Clemington’s orders. Literally, Enoch was just a prince.
Enoch turned to Abella.
Abella, who was staring blankly in the air, blew out a breath. Enoch wanted to bring her to reality rather than let her worry about something she didn’t know.
“Uh, huh? What’s going on?”
“What happened to Amerigo these days; did the profits increase a bit?”
“It’s a little bit…”
“So I thought about a new investment. In fact, even if we set up direct sales, I think we need a product to focus on.”
He succeeded in getting Abella’s attention. Enoch saw her sparkling eyes.
When she talked about work, her eyes sparkled like that.
It was this appearance of hers that he fell in love with.
He was drawn to Abella’s passion, before falling in love with Abella herself. Enoch laughed bitterly. She always made this face when she talked. A feeling of heat and defeat washed over him like a tide.
Enoch repressed these feelings and opened his mouth to speak.
“……Do you remember the other day when you unearthed a gemstone in Vincent?”
Abella nodded her head. She came to know that in Vincent, she could make magic tools with gemstones that were mined in small quantities. She also found out that depending on the method of smelting the mined magic stones, the magical power could be amplified.
And Abella’s business played the role of intermediary between the smelting plant and the gemstone mining site. That’s why she knew the smelting process and how to mine well.
