Daughter of the Emperor Volume 1 Chapter 15
The emperor’s only daughter vol 1 ch 15
According to the whispering maids, I was a baby that was really fun to raise. When I think about it, I think the reason behind it was rather obvious. I mean even I too, would want to raise a baby just like me.
If I could find a baby just like me who would not only listen well but also never cry or whine, then I too will want to go get that baby immediately to raise.
‘Not only am I all that, but aren’t I pretty to boot?
Hah, this devastating loveliness of mine!’
“You grew a lot taller and your body weight is good. Our princess, you are working hard to grow up so well.”
Cerera wiped my mouth with a handkerchief and smiled brightly.
Her face brightened up so much that you could no longer find any trace of the shadow that used to hang over her face when we first met. It was still an uncertain period for me so she could only meet her child once a month, but when the time comes that I am more stable and I no longer need her as much as before, then she can go meet her son more often.
When I heard what she said, it made me want to work harder to grow up quickly, but it’s not something I can just do because I try to work at it.
‘This is not something I can control on my own! Hmph.
Ah, I feel down.’
“Even within a short moment, her face changed numerous times.”
‘Ah, you. Did you come again?’
I turned my head, expressing my annoyance.
Cerera and Elaine were busy clearing my meal away so they weren’t paying any attention to where I was. Thanks to that, I could glare at the invisible guy as much as my heart desired.
“I feel a bit hurt. You’re still happy to see me right?”
‘You’re kidding me, right? Who are you trying to sell medicine to?’ (T/N as in snake oil AKA scam)
I put all my disbelief and contempt in my eyes as I glared at him, which made him laugh so hard that his neck bent over.
‘Ah, a crazy fucker.’
As if he wasn’t hanging out with another crazy guy, he’s off his rocker too. Of course, he still insists he’s normal…
‘Usually, as a rule, crazy people don’t know that they are crazy. Tsk, tsk.’
“I’m hurt. Your love for me must have cooled off!”
‘Get lost. Stop shoving your weird face in front of my eyes.’
As I freaked out and tried to pull away, the guy actually came closer. The guy immediately came to the crib started to beam a smile right in front of my eyes.
“Hey, you’re the one who said I was the only one you could talk to. Who was the one who said that was a good thing?”
‘It’s over. I don’t want to talk with a crazy guy like you! Get lost!’
*Groan* I am going to die of anger. How did I get entangled with a crazy guy like him?
‘I resent myself for waking up in the middle of the night two months ago.
Yeah, that’s right it all because of these teeth!’
I scrunched up my face as I resented the pointy teeth that appeared at the bottom. It turns out I woke up a lot during the night because I was teething.
Even If I was going to wake up I woke up in front of a guy like that. *Groan*
I shouldn’t have cheered for joy at that time. I really shouldn’t have. *Sob Sob*
He didn’t seem to get hurt by my exaggerated dislike of him. Instead, with the mentality of a crazy person, he would turn my insides out. That was the same as what he was doing now.
“Acting hard to get is quite attractive, our princess.”
‘Agh, fuck off! You!!! Yes you, I am talking to you!’
He chewed my animosity filled words as lightly as if they were gum. That son of a bitch.
“I don’t want to?”
‘Go fuck yourself. Don’t just go, but make sure you fall over too.’ *Sob sob*
He didn’t even blink at my outpour of curses.
He simply came over to the front of my face and patted my head.
It felt a bit different from the way Keitel patted my head. How do I explain it? I guess Keitel always gave me the feeling that he was petting a pet, but this fucker gives me the feeling like he pacifying a pet instead?
‘Ah, me. What is the difference? Tell me what’s the difference!’ (T/N o_o I think she asking herself)
“I find this fascinating. Even Keitel can’t see me when I’m like this.”
As Dranste said this, he looked unusually honest.
I just looked up at him with a ‘whatever’ expression.
Even in the daylight the dimly glowing blue lights coming from his cold eyes looked strange. He was definitely not human.
“You said it too, that it was fascinating to be able to talk with me.”
Ah, that really was true. However, it is not fascinating enough for it to be worthwhile for me to endure your harassment! I put my foot down. But he just let my words flow in one ear and out the other ear.
‘Agh! That son of a bitch.’ *Sob Sob*
What did he say it was? It was supposedly some kind of telepathy.
That’s right, he seemed to find it too troublesome to explain so he gave me such a half-hearted explanation. It made me want to punch him, but from what I heard it really seem to be that type of power.
I guess, in a few words, I was the one dropping my thoughts around anywhere and he just happened to pick up them up. My dad and Cerera can’t hear because they were perfectly human and their code didn’t match. Something about no permission to approach?
‘Ah, whatever. I no longer need you, so can you go. Huh?
Read my Heart (mind)!’
“Unfortunately, I don’t have that kind of ability.”
Dranste hatefully talked back to me with a bright smile. I wanted to pinch that face at least once with a lot of hate and force behind it!
“Even a guy like me has limits.”
‘Ugh, this ***’
His overconfident smile was so *** I really wanted to ask my dad to go beat him up.
*Sob Sob* ‘Abei, your daughter is being bullied!’
Now that I think about it I heard this voice somewhere. Yes, that’s right. I did hear this voice before. Was it when I was around 3 months? Yeah, in the middle of the night he came with the guy called dad and they equally broke into my room together.
Ah, I would like to send my past self who thought this guy was a normal person the middle finger through UPS. What kind of fucking normal person was this?!
“Cute. How many years old are you?”
‘I am not your pet okay, why are you asking how many years I lived?
Ugh, my insides are about to explode.’ *Flinch flinch*
He kept poking me in a sore spot!
‘That’s right, I only lived 8 months so what are you going to do about it?!’
“Are you saying you were only born eight months ago?”
‘Stop asking when you already know the answer! Don’t confirm what you already know!’
“Cute. So lovely.”
‘Yeah, thanks for the compliments.
However, don’t think you can win me over with this.
That a mistake. (T/N in Korean mistake end with the same word for mountain.)
Mountains of Gyeonggi Province mistake. (Korean play on words)
…..Ah sorry. That was lame. *Sob Sob*
The one who should go fuck off was me. *sob sob*
I feel really sore.’
I felt so sore I just sat there with puffed up cheeks. The guy started laughing again.
‘What the- Not only Keitel but that guy too? Why do they all laugh at me?
Am I funny? Perhaps I look funny?’
I haven’t seen a mirror yet so I have no idea how I looked like. Someone needs to actually hand me the thing called a mirror so I can actually see myself.
*Sigh* For some reason I been sighing a lot today.
Then, my bottom lips started to stick out for some reason.
‘Anyway, why do I have this ability?’
“The ability to see you, you piece of gum wad.’
“I told you last time. It’s because of your bloodline.”
He gave a half-assed answer as he stroked my cheek. I started to get miffed.
‘What do you mean by my bloodline?’
“How the hell would I know?”
‘What the hell do you know?’
My look of contempt shot right through him.
If it had been someone else they would not be able to decipher such an odd look from me, but this guy instantly knew what I meant. To think this guy could understand even things like this with his 100 percent telepathy toward me.
I used my small arm to slap his arm annoyingly which made him pull his hand back.
I should have done this from the start.
He used the hand he pulled away to support his chin instead.
“You have better sight than normal babies. From what I can see, that’s all thanks to your good bloodline.
Of course, your current development is also thanks to that too. Your Cognitive and Intellectual development is already over. And your mental development at this point is, well, good enough. Isn’t your mental growth practically over at this point and just your body is still a baby?”
‘Can you not proudly show off something that I already know.’
So If I follow his logic, the fact that I have the whole previous life memories might be thanks to the influence of my bloodline. Or maybe not.
“If the blood mixed in your genetics ran a bit thicker, your physical development wouldn’t have lagged behind your mental growth and would have been as fast…with the exception of the eyes- Well. Tsk.
Unfortunately, it looks like it isn’t so.”
‘Are you saying I am not human?’
The question I threw out made him laugh.
That night, I couldn’t see him well but Dranste under the sun was a beauty that didn’t lose to Keitel.
If you had to compare them, technically it was a victory for my daddy. If you think about it, no one could beat Keitel’s beauty. If you only analyze that human(Keitel), his beauty was not even human at all.
“Perhaps, in this world, there are all kinds of people. If I had to specify, you’re about 98.2 percent human?”
‘Then that’s just human. Do you want to fucking die?’
“Uh huh! But a lady must not be so foul-mouthed.”
He’s the one who started it with his teasing and now he’s acting like this again. I feel as if my insides will explode from all this inner fire.
‘Hwabyeong, Ah it Hwabyeong.
If I faint due to Hwabyeong at this tender age it’s all thanks to that guy.
Someone beat that guy up.’ *sob sob*
As my insides were exploding Dranste looked down above me with a big cheerful grin.
‘That damn guy, that rotten fucker, that fucker that deserved to die!’
In the end, I glared at him with a death glare and picked a fight with him.
‘I hate the sight of him laughing to death!’
I peered at him with my slitted eyes and threw a question at him.
‘What the hell are you?’
Drantse, who shortly laughed, cocked his head. Thanks to that, Drantse’s seductive smile disappeared from his mouth.
‘Ah, now my inwards feel better.’
His short black hair with blue lights shook. The blue eyes that couldn’t be hidden in the dark looked at me.
“To say ‘What’, you’re pretty good. Really good, actually.”
‘What the hell are you saying?’
Keitel wasn’t a person who made sense but this guy took the cake for coming out of left field.
‘Ah, even just talking is tiring. This damn guy.’
“What do you think ?” (What am I?)
“Do you want to die?”
‘Don’t threaten me as you laugh. Even if you do that it’s not going to work.’
Dranste must have felt wronged because he made a crying face.
‘It’s not going to work.’
From above me, I could hear him go, “Chi!”
‘Ugh! Why is everyone who tries to play with me a bratty kid? Am I not suppose to be the bratty baby or are they the bratty baby? Ah, Cerera is the exception.
Anyway, that’s that…
Ah, there is no answer coming to mind. I can’t even grasp an idea or feeling. He said he wasn’t a ghost.
He’s too wretched to be a god so exclude that. Dragon? There can’t be a creature like that…
Of course, celestial beings are also excluded. Then from what left is…
“Keitel does call me that.”
‘Then are you saying you’re not?’
He laughed at my reply. His laughing form as he went “kh kh kh” looked like a crazy person, so I didn’t even want to be close to him.
The problem was that I couldn’t crawl away! Yet that person could walk!
“We will see each other often until the day Keitel dies so you don’t have to abuse your head anymore. Someday you may figure it out.”
‘Are you trying to comfort me? Wanna die? No, I’m curious now. Tell me. Now.’
“Uh huh, you have an impatient personality, lady.”
God, If you can make my hand and body grow up right now so I could just hit that knucklehead once I will sell my soul. Yes?
You say you won’t receive my soul?
Ugh, that’s messed up.’
I felt dispirited and leaned against the safety rail of the crib. As I let out several deep sighs, Dranste reached his hand out for me. Then he held my hand up and laid a kiss on it.
It was something he did so often that I just left him alone when suddenly his eyes that were on me sparkled.
‘What wrong with this thing(Dranste)?’
At that moment he laughed.
“When you grow up will you like to be my bride?”
‘Get out and die.’
“Here. Ah, so pretty.”
Cerera was randomly giving it her all at playing dressing up doll with me.
The custom fitted white dress was put on me. The clothes were pretty, but being dressed up so suddenly was also quite burdensome.
‘What’s going on, everyone?’
“This outfit seems to be the best one.”
Elaine, who was at the side, took out something from the mountain of clothes piled up.
Cerera reached out with just one hand and took the outfit. Then she handed me over to Elaine to hold instead.
I noticed that Elaine’s embrace was softer then Cerera’s.
If you’re asking me if I like it more then the answer is no. I’m afraid her strength will overflow in her grip in her attempt to hold me and fall over. Ugh.
“That’s right, hold her for a bit.”
Then she started to go through the clothes with more decisiveness.
‘Ah, I’m dizzy. This is good and all but can I go sit down somewhere?
I know it’s comfortable since I’m being held, but I feel the most relaxed when I’m sitting by myself.’
“Oohah ooh ahh.”
“Princess, you like it too right?”
‘…Do I have a communication disability? Look at what comes out of my mouth!’
Cerera can’t understand what I am saying and neither can Elaine.
‘Hah! Such a cruel world! I give up. *Whine Whine* *Sniff Sniff*
That’s right, it’s easier if you just give up’
“This outfit? Or this outfit?”
She measured a red dress then a blue dress on my body. Elaine seriously pondered.
“I think a red dress is better than blue. A dress with a reddish hue is prettier.”
“If you think about it the hair is..”
Both people were dead silent as they looked at the two dresses in front of them.
‘What does it matter what I wear? I can wear whatever.’
I started to get a headache just watching them waste so much energy thinking over a dress.
“Thish one! Thish one!”
I ended up having to get involved.
Cerera smiled as I pointed to the red dress.
“This one, does Princess like this one?”
She asked while smiling.
‘No, but I don’t want to worried about it any longer.’
I busied myself by nodding and laughing.
Elaine and Cerera didn’t look completely satisfied with the dress I picked but they felt they had no choice since that was the one I liked.
‘Now it turns out that the purpose of this dress …
was for a party being held tomorrow.’
In Korea a gum wad refers to someone sticky who stuck on you like gum.
