Hope Everything Goes Smoothly
Somehow, the meal that Violette asked Marin to bring is really delicious and light. If it’s not because of the change of seasonings, that might come from Violette’s own heart.
Her father and Maryjun came to visit, but the way Violette responded was not something that Marin had expected.
Since Violette do not want to feel forced to attend the dinner, so she had her meals brought to her room for her poor health. To be honest, she does not even care even her family do not bother to invite her.
“Violette-sama, these are tea snacks from the chef.”
After meal, Violette relaxes idly on the sofa by the time Marin returns. From the white tray she is carrying, sweet scent trickles Violette’s nose.
“My…… If those are dessert, I had mine already, didn’t I?”
“You’ll be very tired from now on, so let me pour you some tea.”
She is stuffed after dinner, but she guesses that the chef might also be concerned. Not only paying attention to Violette’s preferences, each dish was serve in bite-sizes with lesser amount than usual.
“Well…… Thank you. I’m grateful.”
Those sweets served on the table seem so delicious that those keep telling Violette to eat them, but they are so cute that she cannot choose whether she should eat them or not.
It’s better to eat sweets especially when you’re tired, and of course those sweets look amazing and taste delicious, and they show how much those chefs care about Violette.
“Fufu, I’m going to gain weight.”
It is not a good thing to eat something after dinner, especially on evening. Most woman would avoid eating anything, especially sweets since they need to keep in check with their figure.
Of course, that also applies to Violette. Remembering that she had to wear her designer dresses in her closet, taking care of her body is essential.
If she sees her result on a scale, it would be very obvious. It’s something she would not rather see.
“Violette-sama should get some weight, not in the chest area, but around the waist and thighs.”
“Don’t be unreasonable, it’s not like…… I chose to have a body like this.”
“If your sarcasm is directed to me, then I shall receive it.”
Contrary to Violette’s women appeal, Marin is thinner and lighter. Marin does not complain about her weight since she doesn’t mind it herself. Violette thinks those traits of Marin are respectable.
It is true that having large chest and thin waist are considered beautiful, thus many yearn for those.
However, Violette does not really wish to have such beauty, since she knows that it will not always bring her to good things…… so she denies it with all her might.
“Well, if I have to be honest, I cannot be jealous since I know Violette-sama also has it hard.”
“……I’m happy that you understand me so well.”
It cannot be help that she remembers her own experiences that she doesn’t want to remember.
Whenever she came to social party, she had been always the one getting all the attention. Most of those attentions were directed toward her body. Back then, she didn’t understand what those meant behind those stares piercing through her skin.
Now, she needs to keep on low profile to avoid any unnecessary attentions. It would be better if there are no incidents…… but there is no harm from doing so since she cannot expect what will happen later knowing full well that ideals cannot be reality.
“……From now, that girl will be appearing, huh?”
That girl she meant is no other but the only Maryjun.
She has no idea since when…… but at least she knows that previous Violette caused a lot of disputes due to her oppositions, but she doesn’t know how things will turn out this time.
Then, Violette takes her first bite of the tea snacks.
She kept pointing out that Maryjun was merely the daughter of lowly concubine every time Maryjun speaks to the person Violette loved. She hurt Maryjun by stating the fact without taking accounts of Maryjun’s feelings.
(I’m getting headache just from remembering……)
Love was said to be blind, and she believes whoever stated those words was correct. She lost all her reasons when it came down to Maryjun.
Even she is a child of concubine, but that does not change the fact that her blood came from Vahan family. Violette is still not convinced, but Maryjun is undoubtedly also a “Daughter of Duke Vahan.”
(Now that I think about it…… I guess I really inherited my mother’s blood.)
She shared the same trait of her mother; she dedicated her life for love without looking paying minds to circumstances. In the end, it was Maryjun who inherited her father’s talent instead of Violette.
What Violette has are her father’s peerless beauty and her mother obsessiveness. Taking the latter trait into consideration, one could say it’s due to God’s mischief.
Of course, previously she made blunders for following her heart, but she would follow reasons in mind.
“I, Marin, am on Violette-sama’s side.”
“……Thank you, but you don’t have to worry about it. We don’t have to do anything since father will be the one handling everything.”
She does not need to do anything, and she does not want to get in Maryjun’s way. However, knowing that the commotions will be caused not only by Violette themselves, it is not wise to be absent where other people are saying something.
Saying that it is not for Marin to worry, Violette keeps pondering a lot.
“I wish it goes smoothly without problem, but……”
Her wish resembling to a prayer to God sinks down into Violette’s heart without anyone knowing.
