To Help You Understand - Chapter 13
Winter went back to his bedroom and began to groom his body, which had been dragged around by Violet all day.
Winter wasn’t careless about dressing up. Although he was not overly sensitive to fashion, he always shaved, wore clothes that were cut to fit his body, and took a long time to get his hair done.
He was aware that his appearance was useful. There was no need to be a beauty because he did everything to make money.
Winter, ready to work, left the room. Normally, he would go to work without looking back, but he was very worried about Violet today.
The first menstrual cramps he felt were terrible. And he felt so disgusted that he wanted to throw it at random person and scream.
He don’t know how his wife is holding this up.
Winter turned nervously on his way out.
“Oh, I’m so busy.”
He told Lulu.
He opened the door and found Violet asleep on her medication.
Winter sat on his knees beside the bed, and stared at her.
She seemed to be sound asleep. Winter followed.
“Don’t be sick.”
He said, sweeping her hair behind her small ears with his fingertips.
“Don’t even think about getting out of my house. Just live with me.”
After he finished speaking, he looked at his wife’s face for a while and stood up. He felt itchy for some reason, so he rubbed his neck and grumbled.
“Looking at your face, I can’t go to work.”
When he came out, Hayel, who was waiting in front of the carriage, asked.
“What took you so long?”
“What do you want?”
When Winter flopped down in the carriage, Hayel put out an invitation.
“We’re having a sponsorship party in Cantus this year as well.”
Kantus was a monastery in the south-central part of the Lakround.
The monks of Cantus held a small sponsored party every year and presented them with their own wine in return for the donations. Winter was very greedy for the Cantus wine after he got it and drank it. In the end, he wanted to offer it exclusively to high-end hotels in the capital city.
But no matter how much money Winter had, it was extremely difficult to get the wine.
The problem was that Winter kept his distance from the rules of etiquette. Many of the monks in Cantus were royal bloodlines, so they had a high nose and demanded a very high level of etiquette. Hayel spoke in private.
“By any chance, little lady… if you know how to change your body.”
“… just ask me to change it that day?”
“You’ve already thought about it, haven’t you?”
“I have to try.”
Winter thought for a moment and answered back.
“I’ve never been to a party in my life, so can you do it for me now? We’re talking about divorce.”
Winter gave a cold shoulder .After that, he thought of Hayel’s words and was lost for words.
The reason why the bodies of the two changed in the first place was because their blood mixed with those of the Kanik clan. Nevertheless, it seemed clear that Violet knew the way.
‘What the hell is that?’
He began to organize them in his head step by step when the bodies of the two first changed to find clues.
“Uh, I don’t want to go home.”
Said Violet, who woke up, stretching.
Violet, looking pleasantly at the sun-drenched window, then recalled Mrs. Ash and Mrs. Catherine, who were pushing her into the closet.
Winter seems to have come out of the party to finding himself without a greeting, so it will be hard to let it go again this time.
But Violet shook her head and thought not to be afraid.
Violet, raised up her upper body and tilted her head, she found a chocolate tower on the table. Violet, walked with her gown on, then took a layer of the circular chocolate.
“… what is it?”
Violet was scared but was curious too, but Lulu came into the bedroom.
“Are you awake now? The medicine must have been strong since you slept soundly last night.”
Violet turned around and found another cake in Lulu’s hand.
“What the hell is all this?”
“Hayel paid the chef for the ingredients for the dessert. I don’t know how much he paid for it, but this crazy gentleman made a dessert mountain without knowing the extent of it. They told me to make you eat it all? There’s still a lot.”
“Isn’t that all?”
“Of course! The hotel staff took made of it instead of breakfast because and they wanted to throw it away if the shape was a little distorted.”
Lulu grumbled. Violet sat in front of the table and said, “Looking at the chocolate tower and cake, I thought I should have someone to share it with.”
“I’d like you to send me a message in private. Without anyone knowing.”
“Without anyone knowing? What’s the matter?”
“Well… she’s running away from home, and she shouldn’t be caught by anyone.”
“Your friend ran away from home? Oh, you’re both troublemakers.”
Lulu laughed cheerfully.
After breakfast, Violet went straight to her mother.
After a 30-minute drive, Ella’s residence in the Filippeses came out.
Ash lived there, and a farm was just in front of the mansion.
As her daughter got out of the carriage, Mrs. Ella Filippe came out to meet her with a bright face.
“Violet, what’s going on here?”
“Sorry I haven’t been able to see you, Mother.”
When Violet said hello, Ella asked.
“Would you like to go in for a cup of tea?”
“Would you like to walk? Show me around.”
“That’s a good idea.”
Violet said as she walked along the trail around the mansion.
“I’m sorry I couldn’t come often.”
“You’re a Blooming now. How can you come here often?”
Ella continued in a soft voice that was not always exciting.
“You’re doing fine, so there’s nothing to worry about. What should we do with our poor Ash?”
“You seem to be doing well, too.”
When Violet was ten years old, her eldest brother passed away. Before that, Ella only knew her son, but after that, she became obsessed with the her other children. Violet understood her mother. Because her older brother’s early death was like splitting Ella’s world in half.
Ella continued as if she was heartbroken.
“How are you? He also offered the throne he was supposed to have. Just thinking about how he feels…”
“… Mother, I had a hard time, too.”
“You’re good on your own.”
Most of the things I do were not doing well alone, but I had to do it alone.
Violet bit her lips and continued with a quiet voice resembling her mother.
“My husband doesn’t know when he’ll be home once he goes out, and all the southern aristocrats hate me. I’m really tired now…”
Ella sighed as if she couldn’t hear.
“That’s something you can solve if you’re good to people around you. Who would blame you for that?”
Seeing her mother come out like this, it seemed to be a problem for Ash in any sense if Violet was not in the Blooming family. At that point, it was already impossible to ask her for help.
It’s not that Ella doesn’t love her daughter, but it was that she didn’t feel sorry for her. The only pity for her was towards Ash.
Violet sometimes wanted to be a poor daughter to her mother.
Violet returned to the hotel with a complicated mind.
Fortunately, there was news waiting to make her feel better.
It was a telegraphic call from her childhood friend Sharon.
It was a call from the Orgel Garden, south of the capital where the two often went to play when they were young. Violet left the hotel with Flip, who was waiting for Lulu with her luggage.
When Violet arrived at the Orgel garden, Sharon ran excitedly from afar.
Violet recently met Sharon, but Sharon welcomed her violently and hugged her because it had been too long.
“How long has it been!”
“Wow, Sharon… you’ve grown up a lot.”
Sharon, who played the role of a baby when she was young, had grown up taller than Violet now. She didn’t know when she was Winter’s body, but when she came back to her body, she felt the difference.
Sharon pulled Violet’s hand.
“Let’s go, Grandma is waiting.”
“I haven’t seen you in a long time.”
The garden was owned by Sharon’s maternal grandmother, Enna Tessie Orgel.
Enna always had a curt look on her face, and by the way she spoke she seemed rude, but Violet knew how kind she was.
Enna said in a noncommittal tone as she dragged Sharon from her waist into the mansion with.
“You must have been surprised that my granddaughter didn’t grow up after a long time, ma’am.”
“Lower your tongue!”
“I’m an adult now, and that’s rude.”
Enna smiled at Violet’s expression of regret while answering back.
“But if you say so, there’s nothing special about it. Instead, call me Grandma as you used to.”
Violet was relieved at her words and smiled faintly.
“Yes, I will.”
For Violet, who likes flowers, sightseeing at the flower garden was the happiest time.
Although the garden was coloured with as the summer began all the flowers would be gone, Violet knew what kind of flower tree it was without flowers too. Sharon said proudly to Enna.
“Violet really knows all the flowers Grandma? She know the weeds, too.”
“That’s true, but I don’t know why you’re bragging.”
“I’m bragging about my friend!”
“Is that so? Then she’s also your pride.”
Violet was embarrassed by the two’s praise.
When Flip arranged the desserts she had brought with cloth under the shade of the lamp tree in a nice way, the three women sat in a circle and began to play with flowers. The sun began to set in the midst of all the talk.
Then, a maid came running frantically.
“Ma’am! We’re in trouble! There’s a carriage with flowers for tomorrow’s dinner, and I think there’s a problem in in, and the flowers are dead!”
Enna looked embarrassed at her words.
“Oh, my God, all the rose in the garden is gone… the flowerless dinner in the garden must be disappointing to the guests.”
Enna, who had always been blunt, looked sullen. If she has this look on her face, she’s really depressed inside. Then, Enna asked Violet, who she felt sorrier for.
“Is there any good way, Violet?”
“Oh, then… Why don’t you change the theme of the dinner to a summer garden? There are a lot of clams in bloom. It’s so cute. I think it would be good to decorate the branches with green ribbons and put bluish grapes or green olives in transparent liquor like white wine to enjoy the summer night atmosphere.”
Enna, who listened to Violet’s excitement for a long time, said.
“Is Lord Winter dead without you for a day?”
When Violet smiled and shook her head, Enna got up from her seat.
“Go to bed tonight. If you help me, I won’t be disappointed. I don’t know if there’s anything you don’t have.”
“I think it would be good to pay me. I want to make money.”
“Grandmother, me too! I ran away from home and I don’t have any money!”
When Sharon also helped, Enna nodded.
“Come on, let’s move.”
Enna was in a hurry to speak and hurried to the mansion. Violet, who was looking at her, looked back at flip and said,
“Flip, I’m sorry, but could you inform my husband that I’m staying at the Oval Garden tonight…”
Violet shut her mouth as she was talking.
She remembered her mother who said who would blame her husband for not coming home. Suddenly, she felt resentment.
When Winter came home for three years, he never had violet. He was always out of touch, and she always waited vaguely.
Violet shook her head.
“There’s a high possibility that he won’t come in, so I don’t think we need to leave a message. If my husband comes back to the hotel and asks, Lulu will contact me here.”
“Yes, I think so, too.”
Flip nodded eagerly. He probably noticed Violet’s mind.
“I want you to feel how hard it is to wait for someone and don’t know when she’s coming…’
Violet thought so and followed Enna and Sharon. Whether Winter checked or not, it was a pretty big deviation from her, who always told him about her schedule.
