Untouchable Lady - Chapter 12
The voice was sweet and dense. It sounded like a whisper the first time hearing it.
It wasn’t too soft for Hilise either. Cold golden eyes slid along with the voice.
A silver-haired man standing in the background of green vegetation in the shattering sunlight was staring at Hilise with his red eyes, like roses with a strange look.
He was Gabrielle’s fiance, Christian Parbenon, whom she had been waiting for.
The moment their gaze met, Hilises’ eyes sank.
The employee who took Christian into the mansion and guided him all the way here was unsure of what to do, due to his embarrassment.
She brought him here according to Gabrielle’s will, but she wouldn’t have dreamed that she would see such a sight.
Gabrielle is currently very frustrated, and most of all, there’s also Diego’s command to keep Hilse’s power a secret to outsiders.
A pathetic cry erupted from Gabrielle, wrapped around a rose vine and dangling in the air.
Even in the midst of the distraction, she found Christian at once.
She didn’t know if it was due to her good eyesight or if she had an excellent anti-crisis instinct to find someone to help her in any crisis.
Gabrielle quickly returned to her usual self and asked for help.
It was hard to believe that she was the same person who was struggling to make sure her skirt didn’t get overturned and screamed loud enough to rupture eardrums a little while ago.
Her hair was also messy and sporadic. Her bare feet were revealed because she lost her shoes whilst she was struggling, her unscrupulous attire sprinkled ashes on Gabrielle’s perfect beauty.
Still, her sad expression and voice had extraordinary power.
But Christian’s eyes, staring at Gabrielle, did not contain any worries about his fiancé.
Instead, he was sending a chilling gaze to Gabrielle.
However, no one else other than Hilise noticed Christian’s cold look.
At the next moment, Christiane took a step from where he was and approached Hilise.
“I never thought I would see ‘The Flower of Inoaden’ in someone else other than Ricardo.”
His consecutive steps were extremely elegant, as if he was walking on the red carpet in the banquet hall rather than on the garden’s lawn. His voice, as if singing, was very soft as well.
It was as if he had completely forgotten Gabrielle, who was still hanging in the air because of Hilise.
Hilise was in the middle of the roses blooming in the earth.
The closer his distance was from her, the stronger the scent that was brushing the tip of his nose.
Cristian finally stopped, looking down at Hilise, buried in rose. She could see him smiling at the tail of her eyes.
“Looking at you like this, it seems that no one in Inoaden would look as good with roses as much as you.”
Soon he put his one knee on the floor and lowered his body in front of Hilise.
The series of movements flowed like water.
“It is an honor to meet the owner of the new rose, Miss Hilise.”
A sweet whisper was entangled in the scent of roses.
As if worshiping a very noble man, Christian wrapped his hand around Hilise’s hair hanging between the roses and gently kissed the red tips, as if he was worshiping them.
He looked at Hilse, as if his red eyes had all of the loveliness in the world.
Gabrielle, who was watching the image from above, naturally doubted her eyes.
The employees who were around were also equally stunned.
They couldn’t figure out what was going on at the moment.
In particular, Gabrielle was in a dumbfounded state, as if she had been struck by a large rock.
However, even in the midst of all the confusion, it seemed that she noticed that something went wrong.
Why does Christian, who would always save her in a hurry, go up to Hilise while making such a sweet face and speak with such a soft voice. ?
He definitely belongs to Gabrielle, not Hilise.
“Chris, what the hell are you doing…!”
Gabrielle, unable to stand it anymore, shouted and trembled.
“Get away from sister Hilise right now… Aak!”
It was then, the forces that held her body loosened.
It was Hilise who was distressed by the current situation and released it.
As the rose vines suddenly disappeared, Gabrielle fell straight down.
Gabrielle, who was only exaggerating in the first place since it wasn’t even high, settled on the lawn without any injury.
Though, she couldn’t balance her body unexpectedly, so she rolled over on the floor in an indecent way.
Wanting to leave, Hilise lifted her body from the grass.
As she lifted her torso, after lying on the pile of roses, her long hair curled down over her back and fell over her shoulder.
Christian only then realized that Hilise was wearing her pajamas.
It was because he had been more interested in the power she possessed than who she was when he first discovered Hilise when he entered Inoaden.
In addition, Hilise’s attitude towards Christian was so gentle that he didn’t notice that she wasn’t dressed decently enough to be seen by others, especially men.
What’s more, since Hilise raised her torso a little while ago, her pajamas had slipped down.
His gaze spontaneously flew to her round shoulders, and her delicate neck that was revealed through the gap.
Although she was half-covered by her roses, her bare white thighs also felt somewhat sensational as her thin pajamas skirt was blown up by the wind.
Most of all, it was the opaque eyes of hers that caught Christian’s eyes.
..Since when did Hilise Inoaden have such a strange atmosphere?
“Miss Hilise, please give me your hand.”
Once the question left his mouth, Christain reached his hand out to help the woman in front of him.
His attitude was polite, but it felt somehow unacceptable to refuse.
When Hilise’s eyes found Christain’s hand in front of her, she struck it with the back of her hand and pushed it away.
She rose from her seat alone, without Christian’s help, and brushed past him.
Hilise didn’t even say a word to Christian, showing she had no interest in him.
Christian looked down at his hand, blatantly rejected by Hilise, his thin, smiling face slightly hardened.
Her white hem and her red-tipped hair danced among the green leaves.
Christian, who got up from his knees, followed Hilise.
“Miss Hilise, wait a second.”
Then, the moment he called her name, a rose wall appeared in front of him.
Implying for him not to bother her anymore, Hilise built a wall of rose bushes behind her.
Christian’s steps stopped as she wanted.
Soon, a strange smile appeared on his face, instead of displeasure.
“Lenoch, did her personality change when she awakened?”
“If you ask me that…”
Lenoch, who had been keeping a certain distance from the time he entered Inoaden, looked at the situation for a while and then approached Christian.
When Christian asked, Lenoch expressed disapproval and was forced to blur the end of his words.
“That’s weird. I’m sure Hilise Inoaden should like me.”
“Are you not mistaken?”
Lenoch refuted it in a questionable tone.
However, Christian remembered that only half a day ago, Hilise, who accidentally bumped into him in the hallway of Inoaden, shook her eyes at his greeting and escaped.
Then, Hilse’s face and eyes turned red after she bumped into him.
However, he did not have to explain such a story to Lenoch.
Christian stared at the bright red rose blocking his sight, then slowly moved his hand to break it apart.
The rose, made with delicacy, turned into brilliant light powder and scattered right in his hand.
A deeper smile appeared on Christian’s lips.
“I’m in trouble…”
‘I’m in trouble because I like Hilise Inoaden more than I thought.’
It was unthinkable until only ten minutes ago.
“Lady Gabrielle, are you okay?”
Just then, the forgotten presence of Gabrielle rose to the surface.
When he turned his head, he saw Gabrielle crying while sitting in the grass and buried her hair.
‘What could be so sad,’ Christian turned around, and she sobbed even more pitifully.
“Wouldn’t it be better to go to Lady Gabrielle?”
For now, Gabrielle was still Christian’s fiancée, so Lenoch suggested it to him.
“I don’t need her anymore.”
Christian turned around without hesitation, coldly twisting his mouth.
“Because I found the real treasure.”
Now that he identified who the successor of the new rose was, Gabrielle was no longer needed.
Christian walked away, leaving Gabrielle behind.
The necklace that Gabrielle had dropped on the floor before the commotion shattered at Christian’s feet.
