Untouchable Lady - Chapter 23
The new successor of rose.
These words implied that he now recognized Hillis as Inoaden’s successor.
The astonishment spreading around him shook Diego’s goal, making him dizzy.
Everyone was talking about whether Inoaden’s next successor was Ricardo, the eldest son.
But what Diego said in front of Cristian earlier, is now a plausible lie.
He couldn’t say a word out of his mouth.
All of the people who were already at the ballroom witnessed Hillis appearing with the rose, the symbol of Inoaden.
But what on earth can they do here and deny it?
It was, however, a good thing for Diego, and Axion’s corresponding words that changed the course of the people’s surprise.
“Not only that but even the descendants of Calicia, who kept the precious stones, returned to find the nest today.”
His voice was cold enough to feel monotonous, but those who listened to it didn’t feel anything.
“As a member of the 4th generation of the ancient blood and as the head of Bergett, how can we not express our joy on such a meaningful day?”
An explosive noise swept through the ballroom.
It was natural.
However having the symbol of Inoaden isn’t meaningful.
What’s more, it’s none other than the Khalykia family !
Does that mean that the power that had been extinguished some time ago has been revived?
Because it is, moreover, none other than Axion Bergett.
Wait, then there is no way that the woman who was called the new successor of Inoaden was real…!
Axion moved between the gap of astonishment and the avalanche of doubtful voices.
Meanwhile, black fragments that quietly spread out of his shadow broke the red jewels on the floor without a trace.
No one in the room knew what Axion had done because it was done so quietly.
He has a face with no realism whatsoever.
He said to Violetta, who was sitting on the floor holding her child.
“Happy birthday, Violetta.”
Only then Violetta’s eyes turned to Axion.
“So you asked for the best treasure in Calicia, Inno Arden’s new rose.”
The moment she heard that her wet eyes shook as if she was in a storm.
Her grasp on the child trembles.
The feelings that were gradually elevating made her unbearable.
Violetta couldn’t hide her overwhelmed heart and hugged the wounded child tightly in her arms.
As Axion said, it was indeed the best birthday for her.
Meanwhile, a faintly twisted smile blossomed on Christian’s beautiful face as he was watching the scene unfolding in front of him.
He called Lenoch and instructed him what to do.
He then exited the ballroom after going down.
Diego, who couldn’t be better than this, also turned back after a while with his hardened legs.
His fists clenched so hard that he bleeds from the bottom of his nail-crushed hand.
Princess of Calicia, Violetta’s birthday party, ended with such a new wave.
But in fact, it was a new beginning.
5. Second flowering
At that time, Inoaden was held back.
It was because an employee working outside the house found that the wall surrounding the window of Hillis’s room was damaged. Moreover, the windows were even wide open.
She hurried up to the fourth floor.
The wall that Diego made in the hallway was intact.
So, there was no way for others to go inside and directly confirm Hillis’ absence.
She tried to call May inside to find out if Hillis had escaped, but she didn’t respond to the calls of people across the wall to see what the hell was going on.
In fact, after eating a full dinner, she was lying in bed and sleeping deeply.
Now that Diego was away, everything in the mansion was, of course, to be reported to Ricardo first.
“Is that true ?”
“Yes, as soon as I checked that the window was open, I told master about it.”
When Ricardo heard the news from the rushing servant, he stood upright, leaning against the bookshelf.
On his face, the scar from the last encounter with Hillis remains.
Even if it wasn’t like Gabriel who had been ordered by his father, Diego was still refraining from going out for a while.
Ricardo ordered the attendant with a firm face.
“For now, send a servant to Calicia to deliver the news to my father.”
“And pick up some knights and hurry to search around the mansion.”
“Yes, I will master.”
Ricardo then walked out of Diego’s study, placing the family literature he was reading back on the desk.
Ricardo’s face was frozen as he walked through the hallway with his long legs.
In the first place, Ricardo opposed the imprisonment of Hillis.
However, Diego was so strong that his opinion was rejected.
Because Ricardo is the only one who can’t inherit the power of Inoaden, it was impossible to destroy the wall that Diego had made with his will.
Ricardo left the building with his employees greeting him.
He stopped at the place where Hillis’ window was, it was placed right above his head.
As he lifted his head, a wide-open window, as the attendant said, came into his view.
It was late in the evening when the sunset and the interior of the room were dark enough that he couldn’t see anything.
However, it was noticeable at first glance that the thin curtains gently clad their arms.
If that room was on the second floor, it would have been possible to climb up the wall, but this was the fourth floor.
Ricardo looked down from the open window and lowered his head. He lowered his body and opened his feet.
A rose that had bloomed in the growing field of grass shone into his eyes.
As soon as Ricardo’s hand touched it, it shattered and disappeared without a trace.
Where did she go?
He wondered if she was escaping after her father was away. Was she deliberately waiting for the time and aiming for an opportunity?
Rather, is it common sense that Hillis, who has just awakened, destroys father’s power in this way?
“Ri…, Master Ricardo!”
When Ricardo fell into thoughts with a serious face, someone urgently came to him.
Ricardo got out from his thoughts as the servant shouted through his ears.
“Lady Hillis is back!”
* * *
Hillis arrived in Inoaden’s garden.
A building with lights all over the windows could be seen.
As the sun went down, all the employees who worked outside were withdrawn, so there was only one person in the garden remaining.
The shadows of the chestnut leaves, the grass wavering, and the wind mixed with the fragrance of flowers, turned around, and then it was quiet.
Inoaden’s mansion was somewhat cluttered.
But for Hillis, who had just escaped from the noisy Calicia ballroom, it felt very quiet.
Hillis found Diego, who was there just before moving to Inoaden.
He was staring at her as if he wanted to kill her because she disappeared. As soon as she came to the mansion, he was going to find Hillis.
However, he couldn’t move.
So it would probably take some time to get to the mansion.
Then should she eat until then?
Hillis was bored looking at the water from a distance.
In a way, it was a ridiculous idea, but Hillis took a step to a restaurant.
She was much more hungry today than she had been usually because she had skipped lunch.
Surely after Diego comes, she won’t be able to fill her stomach.
So Hillis moved toward a restaurant that was relatively quiet compared to the other distracting places in the mansion.
