Daughter of the Emperor
Chapter 354: The Emperor’s Daughter Chapter. 354
‘I don’t know how to look at my daughter now. No, I was at a loss of how to deal with it. What should I say? I didn’t know what to do at all, so I didn’t go out and stayed still, but the door opened, and Ria peeked her head into it.’
‘Her face immediately made me feel better.’
‘That doesn’t mean I can move on from this situation. This is a situation that should not happen without anyone’s intention.’
“… who said you may come here?”
Ria tilted her head in wonder.
“I thought daddy was looking for me.”
If this was the answer, then it was apparent who intended this.
“Yes, that’s right. Now, go over there and hug him, Princess!”
Ferdel grinned with a sneaky face. As Caitel glared at him, he turned his head, pretending he knew nothing about it.
‘I would go crazy if I don’t beat him up now.’
He did this on purpose. This was definitely done on purpose.
Then again, this happened several times before. Caitel bit his lips. Ria suddenly appeared when he left the hand. Since he couldn’t just beat him, Caitel held on to it. Actually, he could beat him up as much as he wanted… but the blood on his hand bothered him.
‘The blood is sticky… it’s disgusting.’
Caitel looked quietly around Ria. His daughter tilted her head with a sudden glance. However, he felt particularly uncomfortable after noticing that she might have seen him in this situation.
“Yes, Your Majesty.”
As he gave a sign, Assisi took Ria out.
He probably brought her to the Winter Garden.
When he and Caitel were left in the room, Ferdel disappeared without a word, apparently knowing whether he was in danger of death. Usually, Caitel would grab Ferdel’s nape and beat him up until he’s displeased, but he wasn’t in the mood for that today.
He washed his cheeks and hands as he suffered from useless anguish.
‘It was awkward to see blood for the first time in my life. That was the first time I’ve ever felt that way after spilling blood.’
‘This is no different from what I’ve always done. So what’s wrong? I was always like this to begin with. So why do I feel like this?’
‘Something is wrong. At the same time, I feel like I’ve wronged someone.’
‘I just did what I’ve always done. So what’s the big deal?’
‘Actually, I know the reason.’
‘There’s no way I do not know why.’
“… that son of bitch.”
‘I ground my teeth. Ferdel, that son of bitch!’
‘I should have doubted him when he answered so quickly. I guess right after I left the office, he went to find Ria.’
‘He has done this often after realizing that I hesitate to show myself in a fury to my daughter for some reason. Yes, he is the only jerk who can possibly think of this.’
‘My temper began to boil, but there was nothing I could do to him.’
‘Since when had this happened? I don’t know, but my situation is too difficult for me to forget. I feel that I hesitate to pull out the sword in front of my daughter. Why?’
‘That concern brought me a headache, but then another concern made me breathless.’
‘… Did she see it?’
‘Just now… I wanted to think that she didn’t see it. Even so, she would have heard the scream at least.’
‘I felt like shit.’
