I Become The Wife of The Male Lead - Chapter 29
Chapter 29: Heilon (Unedited)
Suddenly her cheek was burning as if they were on fire. May was hit so hard that her head was spinning. She then put her hand on her cheek, dumbfounded, then looked at the girl in front of her. However, what made her shocked was the expression on Fiona’s face. She couldn’t believe Fiona who just slapped her on the cheek smiling so sweetly and lovingly.
“As I said yesterday, I’m glad that this family doesn’t seem to have changed.”
“Hey! What is this?!” May cried out in a hoarse voice.
Fiona took a step closer to May, who was embarrassed.
Suddenly, the air in the room became cold rapidly. There wasn’t even a strong wind, but the windows in the room began to tremble.
May felt an unknown pressure. But she knew, it was not just because she was slapped on the cheek.
“May, what did you do wrong?”
Obviously, Fiona was smiling brightly, yet May felt an unknown fear. Her lungs felt tight.
“Lady Fiona, did you realize that when you did this, it would be you who got in trouble?” May bit her lips tightly and built her last pride. “I would report this to the OCuntess right now. If she know this, you would never could stand still—”
May felt a sharp pain in her cheek again, and when she looked forward, there was only a calm smile on Fiona’s face. That expression, which did not suit the situation, felt bizarre.
“Who am I, May?” Fiona asked in a soft voice.
Then, May stuttered. “You.. you’re Lady Fiona….”
At that time, the fireplace in the room burned.
Then the window trembled more and more strongly, and the curtains flapped irregularly.
Surprised by the unknown phenomenon, May now collapsed.
Fiona bent slightly and looked down at her with a smile on her(Fiona) face
May was confused. Fiona behaved in an unbelievable way while the gentle expression was still on her face. However, the more May looked at her, the expression of the girl was gentle but her eyes weren’t smiling. The unknown fear was creeping from the way she looked at her.
‘This can’t be…’
May didn’t know, but Fiona was someone who had fought against those monsters for quite a long time. Although she was not as good as Sigren, she could do the things that at least she could make an ordinary maid terrified of her. Also, because of her anger, the magical powers around her that she did not control were running wild.
“In Heilon, where I’ve been living for five years, I even cut off the tongue of a servant who dared to talk back to their master like this.”
Fiona whispered as if she were talking about nostalgic memories.
“Sometimes, there was a punishment of plucking their eyes out.”
At that cruel words, May’s body was shaking.
“So, what kind of punishment does the capital city impose?”
May didn’t answer. It was not because she didn’t want to answer as an act of rebellion, but she couldn’t, her tongue was numb. She was shocked and terrified. No noble lady in the capital discussed such harsh punishment as cutting off the tongue or plucking eyes out.
Fiona put a hand on May’s cheek and said in a sad tone. “Oh, my. What’s happened to the confidence you had a while ago? What are you so quiet?”
She gently stroked May’s cheek as if her white hand was comforting her. But of course, what she said was completely different from what she did.
“If you don’t answer, I’ll have to follow Heilon’s way. After all, wouldn’t it be better if I cut off the tongue that is talking so daringly awhile ago?”
“I’m sorry. Sorry my Lady.”
May was so terrified that she began to shed tears.
“May, tell me. Who am I?” Fiona asked in a sullen tone.
Now May instinctively realized that this was her last chance. The woman in front of her was not just a stupid illegitimate child. She was truly a person who could do what she said.
‘I must be not in the right mind…’
“You are the Green family’s Lady Fiona…” May swallowed her tears while barely opening her mouth.
Fiona smiled satisfactorily.
“Then what should you do?”
May bowed her head in a hurry.
“I won’t do anything presumptuous again. Please forgive me.”
“Yeah. as you should.”
Fiona then got up from her seat.
As she walked away, May sighed relief in secret. She had to go and report to the Countess right now….
However, contrary to May’s thought, it didn’t end there.
Fiona poured the water from the washbasin onto Mei.
Because of what was happening now, May couldn’t say anything even though she was covered with smelly water. Water dripped down the ends of her hail and along her chin.
Fiona looked down at Mei with an arrogant gaze. There was no smile on her face. As if she was sculpted by ice, she was expressionless without leaving a single point of warmth. As if the gentle expression of her face a while ago was a mask. Fiona then turned her back and said in an icy tone. “If you do a boring trick again, I won’t let it go.”
The door was closed.
