The Three Are Living A Married Life — Chapter 9. Anger (9)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Eyljee
Somehow, she was able to return to her room.
Rihanna sat on the bed and remained motionless for half an hour. What she had heard a few moments ago, was definitely the most horrible and shocking thing she had heard in her 23 years.
She had woken up relatively early. But with her current mood, the shock she just felt kept her from sleeping.
Now she had to admit it. Until a few moments ago, she only assumed that there was a relationship between her husband and her sister. She had some doubts. And there was no hard evidence to confirm their relationship.
But there was no longer a room for any doubt. Clearly, the two were in a loving relationship. Rihanna ended up burying her face in her hands when she reached that terrible conclusion. She couldn’t stand this situation at all.
After a long silence, Rihanna removed her hands from her face, revealing her pale, emotionless feature. However, her eyes were burning with rage.
‘Well, what am I going to do about it?’
Of course, the simplest answer would be divorce. From today, all the feelings she had for her husband vanished.
She didn’t even want to think about how much she had loved him. All she felt was hate, and…
‘…I can’t let this go’.
She just wanted revenge.
Of course, there was an easy way to get a divorce. Since she has yet to bear a child, issuing a divorce serves no difficult task for her.
But it wouldn’t be very satisfying. Her husband had thrown away four years of marriage, cheating on her with her twin sister. Would she simply separate? In the worst case, he would probably marry Lisbeth immediately after the divorce.
As she thought about it, Rihanna smiled bitterly. If that happened, it would be as if she were still related to the count’s family, Was she at a dead end?
She thought that would be a horrible situation. She would feel uncomfortable. As such, she could never divorce her husband. However, she had no intention of living with a disgusting man who was cheating on her with another woman.
There was only one thing left to do.
‘…I have to get revenge’.
At this moment, she only had that one firm idea in her mind. Revenge. She needed to return the horrible emotion she had experienced, even more intensely.
She needed only to mercilessly destroy the person who had betrayed her. She only wanted to see him ruined, sinking into pain. And when the man has collapsed completely, she would divorce him.
Suddenly, Rihanna smiled because she had come up with a plan. However, there was something else she needed to take care of.
‘What should I do with Lisbeth?’
The same blood was flowing through her veins, but that didn’t give Lisbeth any chance for forgiveness. Regardless of the circumstances, she was having a loving relationship with George, so she felt no compassion for her.
However, for the sake of her father, who would be shocked to know of this fact, she has no intentions to exact revenge, at least, not to the same extent as she would with George. Of course, this is while her father was alive.
However, without any intention of covering up her sister’s faults, Rihanna soon found a solution.
‘I have to get her married and get her out of here’.
Lisbeth was living with her twin sister and her husband, due to a love breakup. Lisbeth, who could not stand the murmurs of society after the breakup, volunteered to be Rihanna’s lady-in-waiting, who was about to get married, so she could enter Mansion Royde.
Back then, Rihanna did not expect this ridiculous situation, and she was happy. Lisbeth became a great support within a strange family. In addition, having taken on some responsibilities in managing Royde Mansion, Rihanna began to trust Lisbeth extensively. If she had known this would happen, she never would have done it.
‘Because of her age, it is not unusual for her to get married’.
Lisbeth was also 23 years old. At that age, any single woman would be in crisis. She couldn’t stay single forever.
After organizing her thoughts, Rihanna felt more relaxed, and thought she needed to sleep to have energy for her daily activities. Although she was having a hard time getting sleep because of the sounds she had heard, by keeping her eyes closed and counting sheep in her mind, she was finally able to fall asleep.
In the morning, Rihanna woke up as usual and went down to the dining room.
‘It’s good that I got some sleep’.
If she hadn’t slept, she’d be delirious during the day. But probably because she hadn’t slept deeply, her face was a little weary.
“You don’t look well, Lady.”
Margaret, the maid with whom Rihanna had been since her youth, spoke with a voice of concern. Rihanna stared at Margaret. Currently, she felt that Margaret was the person she could trust the most.
‘I can’t do everything by myself’.
She needed help from one person, and in that case, she could only rely on Margaret. Of course, Rihanna trusted the housekeeper, Mrs. Venigans. But she was serving Mansion Royde. When Rihanna divorces George, their point of contact would disappear completely.
Margaret had only served Rihanna since she was a child, so she did not have to worry about her having any attachment to Lisbeth. But since she could not say something so important lightly at this moment, Rihanna smiled awkwardly and responded casually.
“I couldn’t sleep well last night.”
“Do you still feel bad?”
Rihanna dodged the question and changed the subject.
“I have something to tell you later, Margaret.”
“It seems to be something very important.”
