The Three Are Living A Married Life — Chapter 12. Anger (12)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Eyljee
When she returned to her chambers after breakfast, Margaret asked Rihanna.
“Do you really want Lady Lisbeth to get married?”
“Why are you suddenly asking that question?”
“For four years, you’ve never mentioned anything about Lady Lisbeth’s need to get married.”
Margaret spoke with some curiosity.
“I was a little surprised about the sudden marriage talk.”
“Yes, I’m sure Lady Lisbeth thought so too.”
“…You may be right.”
Maybe they realized that she suspected the relationship between them.
But they were probably both unsure of it, because they thought they hadn’t given her any clues about the relationship. Besides, they both knew that Rihanna wouldn’t stand still if she ever found out the truth. She suddenly wondered what kind of conversation the two of them might have had after this morning’s occurrence.
“Is something going on, by any chance?”
Margaret was a very perceptive person. Rihanna smiled strangely at her question.
“Is that a bad thing?”
Rihanna, who was sitting at her desk, calmly confessed.
“A single girl is dating a married man.”
Margaret’s face turned pale at Rihanna’s comment. At first, Margaret thought Rihanna was joking. However, her Lady’s serious expression confirmed that she had spoken with sincerity, so she soon had to acknowledge it.
“That doesn’t make sense! It’s crazy.”
“Yes, why would Lady Lisbeth…”
“I don’t know, Margaret.”
Rihanna murmured with regret.
“But you shouldn’t be surprised yet.”
“There is still one more shocking detail that doesn’t make sense.”
Margaret’s face was now completely white as a sheet.
“Is there anything else?”
“Yes… Something more shocking than what I just said.”
“Don’t you want to know the married man who Lisbeth is currently dating?”
Rihanna asked Margaret, staring at her. Margaret looked at Rihanna with a bewildered expression on her face that seemed to say, ‘How would I know?’. But soon after, it seemed as if something had occurred to her. Margaret opened her mouth with doubt.
“Lady, there’s no way…”
Rihanna spoke with a serene voice.
“That person is my husband.”
Margaret murmured with a wonder expression.
“Are you joking…?”
“I wish it were a joke.”
Rihanna shook her head calmly.
“It’s all true, Margaret.”
Margaret staggered with the shock. Seeing Margaret’s reaction, Rihanna recalled the night before. She had probably reacted the same way last night in front of Lisbeth’s door.
“Who… who knows about this fact?”
“For the time being, only you and me.”
“Why are you telling me this?”
“Now that I know they’re both cheating on me…”
After a brief pause, Rihanna continued to speak as she looked at Margaret.
“You are the only ‘person’ in this mansion I could trust.”
“Have I made a mistake, Margaret?”
Margaret shook her head quickly.
“No, Lady. I have always been on your side.”
“Even if I have to confront my sister?”
Margaret nodded with a serious expression on her face.
“Lisbeth has done something bad.”
“Just for that reason?”
Margaret added, shaking her head.
“I have served you since your childhood, Lady. For that very reason, I am in this mansion.”
“…Thank you for saying that, Margaret.”
Rihanna said warmly.
“You are the only person I can trust now.”
Margaret’s eyes turned red with sadness.
“My God. How do you feel right now? I really…”
“I can’t imagine the pain you must be feeling right now…”
“It’s very painful, Margaret.”
Rihanna spoke candidly, touching her forehead with her hand.
“But it would be pathetic if I did nothing, and remained afflicted by pain.”
“Lady, that means…”
Margaret asked cautiously.
“Are you going to get a divorce?”
“I’ll do it.”
Rihanna nodded and added a condition.
“But not now.”
“I’m going to get back at George.”
“Yes, revenge. I don’t want to get divorced like this.”
Rihanna expressed what she was seriously planning.
“I’m going to completely ruin George, then get a divorce.”
