Untouchable Lady - Chapter 22
Violetta was a woman with blonde, almost silver-colored hair, and dark green eyes, a symbol of Kalykia.
She even looked like Gabrielle at first glance, simply because she had blonde hair and green eyes.
However, Violetta is not as bright and brilliant as Gabrielle, her skin is slightly undertone, so she felt more calm and refined.
Gabrielle and Violetta are so loved by the family that they were called the princesses of each family, and they are around the same age group.
They also had the same hair colors and eyes, so many people were comparing the two together.
For Gabrielle, she enjoyed comparing herself with Violetta and feeling a sense of superiority.
As people said, Gabrielle was like the star of the bright sun on a clear midsummer day, without any clouds. In comparison, Violetta was like the dew of a sunny early summer day.
Of course, the comparison between the fake princess, Gabrielle, who did not bear Inoaden’s blood originally, and Violetta, who inherited noble blood as a member of the four families, was an unfounded theory.
However, it was possible now that Kalykia’s abilities had died out and entered a period of decline.
Though Christian initially thought that those who put the two on the same line were stupid.
Christian approached the main character of the ball.
As he called her name, Violetta, standing upright like a flower stalk, turned her head. The moment she found Christian in her sight, the green eyes reminded him of something.
Seeing it, Christian laughed.
Those who didn’t know Violetta might think of her as an orchid in a greenhouse. However, she was more of a carnivorous plant than an orchid that had been grown so well.
Say, if Gabrielle did not know the world, and was a single lark who flutters and chirps here and there, Violetta was a was bird’s prey that would snatch such a lark and eat it in an instant.
Even now, she stood out to such a degree even among so many people.
Perhaps she wasn’t a woman who would have been treated as equivalent to Gabrielle, if only Kalykia’s abilities were still in existence, Christian thought somewhat cynically. That’s perhaps why she’s keeping a unique relationship with that Axion Berzete.
An oblique smile emerged from Christian’s mouth for an instant and then disappeared.
Of course, in the end, it’s chaff without a grain. Flowers without scent. She was a woman who he didn’t need to get close to, with Kalykia’s ability getting dry.
Christian greeted her with a light kiss on the back of Violetta’s hand.
“Happy birthday, Miss Violetta. It is an honor to be invited to the ball today.”
“Thank you, Christian. I’m delighted that you attended the ball.”
Violetta looked at the people around her and accepted Christian’s greeting. The misty tranquil forest eyes stared into his face.
When looked at from a distance, she was obviously like a watercolor dipped in water, but when looked at up close, she was a woman who felt like a vivid oil painting.
Violetta, who was wearing a picturesque smile like Christian, asked.
“But today, for some reason, you didn’t accompany your fiance?”
“Yes, that’s the case.”
Christian didn’t have to explain anything but just smiled once.
If he sooner or later broke up with Gabrielle, she would not accompany him in that position, not only today but in the future as well.
However, there was no need to draw attention by bringing up such a story.
“It’s surprising. I thought that if anyone were going to miss my birthday ball, it wouldn’t be Miss Gabrielle.” Violetta smiled and gave her words.
“If she came today, I would have had more fun, too.”
He couldn’t have not known that Gabrielle had a burning sense of rivalry with Violetta. Christian knew that Violetta was very interested and petty about Gabrielle.
“Maybe Gabrielle is regretting not being able to directly congratulate Miss Violetta today.”
Nevertheless, he didn’t express anything and replied with just a smile. Violetta’s eyes, looking at Christian, deepened.
Soon after, Christian asked, pretending to glance around Violetta.
“By the way, is the head of Berzete absent today? Since he has a close relationship with Miss Violetta, I thought I would be able to see him at the celebration today.”
It was a fact that everyone who attended this ball knew that the head of Berzete and the Princess of Kalykia were close.
The two were very close friends who had been together since they were very young.
So, of course, they thought he was going to attend the ball today, but there was no sign of Axion among the people of Berzete.
Not only that, but Axion, the head of Berzete, has never appeared publicly in recent years. The only thing that was known outside was that he was away from Berzete for personal reasons.
Axion’s destination was completely unknown, so he released a large number of people into the Parvenon, but Christian could not figure it out.
“Because I asked for a very rare gift.”
Violetta, facing Christian, still spoke in a calm voice.
“He was a person who was faithful to his friendship, and thankfully, did not refuse the request I was overly demanding.”
“I see. I wonder how precious of a gift it is.”
When Christian responded so, this time, Violetta simply showed a refined smile without answering.
Christian, who was watching her closely, drew a line on his lips.
“I hope you will have what you desire in your arms. In addition, if you like the gift I prepared yesterday, I would have nothing more to wish for.”
“Of course, any gift of Parvenon would be sweet to me.”
“Unfortunately, the first dance will be with your partner, so can I ask for the next?”
At the end of the conversation, Christian asked for a dance of courtesy. However, someone else gave the answer.
“Sorry, but Violetta’s dance partner is already on schedule until the thirteenth.”
The two turned their heads together at the voice from the side.
Appearing in front of Christian and Violetta, was a good-looking young man with dark brown hair neatly passed over to the side of his ear.
His green eyes with a light smile were very similar to Violetta’s.
“Oops, it’s already full until the thirteenth. I’m too late.” Christian raised his mouth and greeted him with a gesture of a nod.
The man also greeted Christian the same way. Then, he approached Violetta and kissed the back of her hand.
“You are dazzlingly beautiful today, Violetta.”
Violetta’s green eyes captured him silently.
“I wanted to be your escort today, but it’s a shame.”
The man looked up again and smiled at Violetta. Violetta also laughed gently when her eyes met his.
“As you know, the escort proposal overflows every time.”
“Well, you are our one and only princess.”
He was Violetta’s cousin, Terzo Kalykia.
Terzo responded to Violetta with a smile on his face.
“But the second dance is for me, so I’ll have to settle with it this time.”
In response, Violetta put a deeper smile on her lips.
“Make sure you fully enjoy this moment. Next time, even that second position may not be yours.”
Obviously, their conversation now was about a dance partner, and oddly enough, it felt like a different meaning was embedded in it.
“I have to work harder, so it didn’t happen.” Terzo smoothly took Violetta’s words.
“I have to work hard to be the first one sooner or later.”
“Well, I don’t think it’s going to work, but you can try.”
Violetta laughed shallowly out of her lips and, conversely, stared at Terzo. Christian enjoyed watching the two people smile with similar faces.
“Then, Christian, excuse me. I hope you have a good time today.”
At that time, Violetta’s partner came to pick her up. She stepped over and approached Christian without greeting Terzo.
“Have a good time, Miss Violetta. We will see you again at the gift presentation ceremony in a moment.”
Christian greeted Violetta, thinking that Kalykia’s internal affairs were also a mess.
For the ball to begin in earnest, today’s main character, Violetta, took the hand of her partner, her cousin’s younger brother, and headed to the middle of the hall.
The music flowing in the ballroom has changed.
Hearing the sound, people scattered in the ballroom began to empty the center of the dance hall. Violetta and her partner walked to the middle.
It was then when a sudden, unexpected, strong wind began to rush in the middle of the ballroom.
The chandelier shook wildly, and the colorful silk fabrics hung on the walls and ceiling fluttered. Not only that, but the petals from the center of the incident were spreading all over the area and began to sprinkle scent.
Everyone who was present was confused and stopped moving.
“Suddenly, some wind…!”
“What the hell is this about?”
Everyone was surprised by the unexpected situation. Kalykia, the organizer of the ball, also expressed embarrassment at the sudden event.
Just then, someone appeared in the storm of flowers.
