The Three Are Living A Married Life — Chapter 15. Anger (15)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Eyljee
“I think she’s been dating someone lately.”
“Dating someone? A man?”
“Yes. It seemed like a serious relationship.”
Rihanna continued to speak cautiously.
“But she’s embarrassed to introduce him.”
“She’s being careful because of her breakup four years ago.”
“But she can’t put off her marriage forever.”
“Yes, she is 23 years old now.”
Count Norden added with a nod.
“She cannot live in Royde Mansion forever.”
“Yes. So… you also agree with the idea of Lisbeth getting married, right?”
“I’ve been thinking about it for four years. But, I thought that she disliked that subject, so I kept silent.”
“I thought you had a different opinion, that’s why I asked you, father.”
“How could I? She is in her last years of age convenient for marriage.”
Count Norden spoke softly to Rihanna.
“You should try to persuade Lisbeth. She will listen to you more.”
“Shouldn’t she get married before I die?”
“Father, you’re not even fifty years old.”
“You never know. Anyway, I’m a greedy man, I want to meet my grandchildren as soon as possible.”
“Don’t apologize. There is still time. I didn’t say it to make you feel bad.”
Count Norden quickly changed the subject slightly.
“Anyway, you must first know this man and then inform me about it. We don’t know if he’s a good guy.”
“Have a good day.”
After finishing the conversation, Rihanna left Count Norden’s office.
Now that she had confirmed her father’s wishes, she just had to put her plan into action.
However, an unexpected situation occurred that night.
Rihanna worked late as usual and then returned home in time for dinner.
In the Royde family, it was the custom to meet for dinner.
“Did you go to the hotel today?”
Lisbeth began the conversation.
“You must be tired, you shouldn’t have worked today.”
“I’m not that tired.”
Rihanna looked at George and said.
“You didn’t go to work today.”
“I had an engagement today.”
“Engagement? With whom?”
George was silent for a moment, and then he said.
“I have something to confess.”
Hearing those words, Rihanna’s heart began to beat fast.
Did he realize that she had discovered the relationship between the two? Was she trying to make the first move? All sorts of thoughts were circulating inside Rihanna’s head.
Rihanna asked George with a nervous look.
George spoke seriously.
“This time, I became a designated official.”
When she heard those words, Rihanna was able to relax. She hadn’t heard the confession she expected.
‘…I feel relieved’.
She was definitely relieved.
When she heard that he had something to confess, she worried, ‘What if this man gently confessed all the cheating?’ If that happened, it would be difficult for her to execute the revenge she had planned.
‘…No, it would be impossible for him to say so.’
Anyone would know the great repercussions of revealing that fact, unless they were a fool.
“Aren’t you going to congratulate me?”
“How can you say it’s an engagement, what does that mean?”
“I have to work at the Ministry of Finance.”
“Did you take the bureaucratic examination? You didn’t tell me anything.”
Four months ago, the regular bureaucratic examinations were performed. The results were announced not long ago, but Rihanna knew that her husband’s name was not included among the candidates. When she tilted her head in confusion, George spoke up.
“Oh, I didn’t take the examination. It was like a special recruitment.”
“Can anyone become a bureaucrat without taking the examination?”
“Yes. Although you don’t know, it’s possible.”
But Rihanna was still confused. And George, who was watching Rihanna’s expression carefully, spoke up.
“So, aren’t you going to congratulate me?”
“I’m asking you if you’re not going to congratulate me.”
He asked with a bitter expression on his face.
“I guess you’re not very happy that I’m going to work at the Ministry of Finance?”
“…No. Not at all.”
Rihanna quickly congratulated him.
“I’m glad, George. That’s great.”
“Is that the face of someone who’s happy?”
