Axion couldn’t clearly recall the face of the woman he had seen in his dream.
For some reason, when he woke up, his memory became blurred like a hazy fog.
But when he finally saw the face of the woman exposed through the subtle moonlight at the place where he went to pick up the descendant of Kallikia.
Axion unconsciously thought she looked like the woman in his dream.
In fact, that’s why he hesitated for a moment.
That was the reason why he had lost the woman and child right in front of him.
‘It must have been Inoaden.’
In Inoaden, if anyone other than Ricardo can awaken….
“Was her name Hillise?”
“Well? If it’s Hillise… maybe Hillise Inoaden? That pale woman who, on very rare occasions, is tucked away in a corner with no presence every time she attends something like a banquet?”
Suleiman responded to Axion’s words.
He was also a member of Berzette’s bloodline and had seen Hillise Inoaden before.
Of course, because she was a woman with a very vague impression, her face did not immediately come to mind.
Then, Suleiman shouted ‘Ah!’ as if he had thought of it belatedly.
“Come to think of it, I went to the ballroom late and couldn’t hear the details, but strange things were being said. You said it was the heir of Inoaden who brought Kallikia’s jewel?”
However, Axion, who was lost in thought alone, just listened to Suleiman’s words.
“The rose prince must have finally awakened? But, I’m sure the chief wasn’t there to pick him up..…”
“I’m leaving first. I want you to follow me.”
Before Suleiman could even react, Axion’s body disappeared as if it had collapsed into the darkness.
Before long, the distance from Kallikia’s mansion had widened, and he could freely use this ability.
In fact, the same case before was an exception, but it was a rule that was secretly applied among the four major families to not use supernatural abilities near the residences of other families. But to the present-day Suleiman, such a rule was meaningless.
“I used so much energy today that I can’t even get to the mansion….”
A despondent murmur came out of the man who was left alone, but his heartless owner had already left.
Eventually, with tears in his eyes, Suleiman began to walk alone, tumbling down the lonely night road. The crescent moon above his head looked down at him.
One day in spring. It was a night where many people could not sleep properly.
Side. Pieces of the Past 2
“No, get out of here.…!”
When she opened her eyes again after her death, Ricardo’s urgent voice awoke Hillise’s hazy mind.
The situation in which a white monster was rushing at her as if it was about to swallow her was slowly recognized in her dazed mind.
For some reason, Hillise had returned to the day she awoke.
Again, Diego was angry with her, and Ricardo looked at her with cold eyes.
Hillise began to wonder if what had happened to her was a dream or not.
Apparently, she fell off the stairs and lost consciousness….
Why am I back in the past?
Hillise involuntarily recalled the events of that time and gripped her chest with an eerie feeling.
At that moment, Ricardo’s hand clearly grabbed Hillise. But it was for a brief moment. After that, Ricardo raised his hand as if he were deliberately trying to push her away.…
But as soon as she thought about it, Hillise was frightened and denied it herself.
No, no. He couldn’t have let go of my hand on purpose. It just happened so unexpectedly that I lost the strength in my hands without realizing it. Yes, it was obvious.
Still, Hillise was very confused.
So she wanted to talk to someone about what had happened, but there was no one around who could.
Hillise tried to tell Diego and Ricardo the truth except for the incident on the last step.
But they didn’t listen to Hillise as usual.
Still, this time she somehow avoided colliding with Ricardo so she didn’t have to go through the same thing on the stairs.
Instead, Hillise’s imprisonment was extended.
Now, even Ricardo sometimes swears at Hillise.
Everyone in the mansion hated seeing Hillise.
So the only space she was allowed was a room and an uninhabited backyard.
Hillise also avoided meeting Riccardo as much as possible because her heart sped up whenever she saw him.
“They’re bad people. I can’t believe they made you so lonely.”
The person who approached her then was Christian Parvenon.
He came to support Hillise and whispered to her in a sweet voice.

“You are always alone when they are together, so how can I call it a family?”
It was the same words I heard from Christian in my last life.
Even then, he had been courting Hillise, who had escaped being imprisoned in Inoaden with the same consistency as now.
Christian was Gabrielle’s fiance, which allowed him to be the only outsider to enter Inoaden’s mansion.
It wasn’t that difficult for Christian to coax Gabrielle and the employees into meeting Hillise, who was locked in the mansion.
“Miss Hillise, come with me to Parvenon.”
He said as he kissed the tip of Hillise’s crimson hair.
Just like in my last life, I thought it would be impossible to be with Gabrielle’s fiancée this time as well.
However, as Christian said, Hillise was always lonely, and so far, he was the only one who recognized her.
In addition, he was the one that Hillise secretly had cherished even before he became Gabrielle’s fiance.
Still, Hillise refused several times.
Still, Christian did not give up and continued to visit her and whisper his love.
“If the problem with Gabrielle bothers you, I’ll figure it out. In the first place, it was just a political engagement between the two families.”
It was inevitable that my heart shook there.
Even in her last life, Christian was the only comfort for Hillise, who was locked up in the mansion alone.
Although Hillise died in vain while pushing him away.
“I swear there was never a moment when she and I were sincere with each other, so you don’t have to worry about anything.”
Maybe…… God gave her a second chance?
“So you can only think of me and only look at me.”
So this time around, I wondered if it would be okay to move as my heart desired.
Let’s be brave for the first time in my life.
At last, Hillise decided and grabbed the hand that he extended.
So this time, after suppressing the fear and guilt in her heart, she chose Christian.
Christian really took care of everything, as he said to Hillise.
She didn’t know what was going on between the families, but Christian and Gabrielle broke up more easily than expected.
And this time the engagement with Hillise was pushed forward.
This is also how Christian got his hands on her, and during the process, strangely enough Hillise had never met Gabrielle in the mansion.
Of course, that didn’t change Hillise’s attitude immediately.
Diego was anxious about letting Hillise out of Inoaden.
It was unclear why Christian and Hillise were engaged, but she thought there was probably some sort of deal with Parvenon.
“Miss Hillise, I’m here to pick you up.”
Then, after a while, Diego and Ricardo were away from home at the same time.
Christian came to visit Hillise.
“Before getting married, I think I will need time to adjust in advance, so I am on the way to get permission from the head of Inoaden to stay in Parvenon together for a while. So let’s go together.”
She was startled by the sudden situation, but Christian’s smile toward her was so dazzling that she finally grabbed his hand as if she was being pushed by something.
Thus, for the first time in her life, Hillise was off the fence of Inoaden.
