Chapter 27, everyone! Obligatory reminder that I don't know how to read, write, or speak in Korean. Therefore, I rely on MTL to do the job for me. Italicized text is my own summary of what's happening, and italicized text are words I've directly extracted from the translator! Spoiler: Chapter 27 (of the manhwa) "You may not believe it, but it's true. It's the correspondence that Andreas went to pick up just now, so please take a look and check it out." Diella says to her. Kaira looks conflicted, but mostly hurt. 'Reagan was responsible for Vienna's arrival at the de Orsia townhouse.' We flash back to Kaira's previous life, to when Vienna was introduced to her. Before I came to the past, my misfortune began with Vienna's arrival. As Vienna appeared, I seriously agonized over why I was not loved. 'If I get close to Vienna, I'll look after her next to her.' she thought, as she brushed Vienna's hair. "Vienna, what kind of hair do you want today?" she asked her cousin. 'Maybe one day you'll admit it...!' I suffered from a sense of helplessness, seeing nothing change. Reagan was the only one next to me like that. "Kaira, it's okay. I got your back. Good girl, Kaira. You did a great job. That's all you have to do." Reagan praised her as she cried. "There's nobody but you." To see Reagan's smile, to be acknowledged by Reagan, to prove my worth to Reagan. To make him emperor, I was stigmatized and did what he demanded to the end. But... By the time I found out about the addiction, the poison had already seeped into the inside and it was impossible to treat. Only one year left of my life. I tried my best to swallow painkillers instead of meals. Before I die, I want to see the smile of the emperor wearing the crown. I want to hear that all I need is you. We flash even further back, to the time that Kaira was a child. I was only ten years old when my mother passed away and I was alone. I was too young to bear the sorrow of losing my mother and the neglect of my father. So I couldn't overcome the pressure and ran down to the Laveler estate south of Beventora. There, a young Reagan greets her, smiling pleasantly. 'With the help of Reagan, I overcame the sadness of losing my mother. I couldn't have lasted until now without him.' After I came back to the past, no matter how much I hate Reagan, the fact remains the same. It's obviously thanks to Reagan that I've been able to hold out. From this realization, Kaira begins to laugh with a maniacal smile, tears running down her face. 'There were many moments when I couldn't give up on him because of the Reagan in my childhood.' Kaira looks at her hands and, seeing that they're trembling, holds them close to her with an anguished expression. 'Reagan had never been sincere to me from beginning to end.' Diella looks at her with eyes full of concern. "I'm sorry, Marquise. I really... have nothing to say. I'm sure you were surprised. Also, you must be angry with me..." "Correct." Kaira says, the last of her tears shed. In place of the helpless expression she sported earlier, is one of determination. "I'm angry." "I'm sorry. I embarrassed the Marquise with my selfishness. I'm really, really sorry." "Why did you tell Andreas the secret? The shock of finding out the child's hidden secret must have been indescribable." "When I didn't know how much longer I could live, I was afraid to find out that Vienna was not my husband's child. I think I went crazy for a while. But I hated it so much. I hate the two men of the Trahan family so much that I want to get revenge somehow...!!" "... What else happened besides that? I think it would be understandable to me if I knew why you even thought about revenge." Warning: for the next panel, I got different translations for equally confusing sentences, so I had to pull things out of my ass and hope for the best. If there's anyone here who's more proficient in Korean and has access to the raws, please feel free to correct me! "After having Vienna, Travis' child, who promised to arrange a seat in the capital, cut off contact. Can you imagine how miserable it must have been for me to act like I'm sleeping with my husband by plying him with drinks while hiding my stomach? By the time I gave birth to Vienna, I forgot about it. One day, my husband came in drunk and confessed. He recommended me as his wife... it was him, Travis. Travis is the son-in-law of the de Orsia family. He locked me up as his brother's wife, which I thought was the most disturbing." Righteous fury crosses Diella's face as she's told this by her husband in a flashback, with tears rolling down her face. "[He was] Just indulging in pleasure. Haa- I tried to live with it, but as Vienna grew up, what she did was become the same as Travis. Vienna framed me and Andreas with all kinds of lies for her own gain. For Baron Trahan. I can't forgive him. Marquise, please help me. I'll go to trial and testify if I have to." Kaira takes the time to open the black box that Andreas brought in. "Marquise, that's the evidence I told you about." Diella adds. 'Reagan's handwriting is unmistakable.' Kaira thinks to herself as she looks at the contents. Her face darkens considerably, before the moment passes, and her face returns to normal. "... Yes, it's all true. I'll go back for now. I need time to think, too." Kaira says, weary. Back at the estate, Kaira leans against Soren, digesting the information she was just given. "Soren. How could this be? There's no one in the world I can trust." As she says this, she notices Andreas staring at her not too far away. "Soren, don't say anything for now. Go up and rest, Andy." Andreas does as she says, turning away. As Kaira makes her way back to her office, she notices a stack on her desk, "Huh? Why are the documents.... Oh, is the investigation over already? An investigation into the source of the mana stone used as a wall light..." 'The distributor is Count Ingsen, the purpose is for recording, lighting, and the number of times it can be used is less than three times. It's no different from the mana stone they sell at the magic store, so why?' Then... wasn't the magic stone the problem? Moving forward, 10 days have now passed since that day. The day of the ceremony. Kaira, donning a snazzy suit, is looking over the attendees, surprised by the number of people that have come to see them. Of course, with so many people, there's bound to be a bad apple or two. Count Ingsen has appeared with his daughter, Letrina. (Still can't believe she's named after a communal toilet...) The time has come. The emperor calls out Kaira's name, and she kneels in front of him. "Kaira de Orsia. Are you loyal to the imperial family, and vow to defend the nation and care for its people." "Yes, I swear." Kaira replies, as the emperor looks down at her. "Emperor Lygrette, Alexis Parahan Lygrette, will give the position that was promised... From now on, fulfill your duties as head of the family." Once Kaira's officially been given the position as head of the de Orsia family, people rush to congratulate her, voices ringing out. "Marquise de Orsia, congratulations." a noble says to her. "Congratulations. Finally, the orthodox heir is in place." another says. The happiness is not meant to last, however, as a hand grabs at Kaira's wrist rather harshly. Kaira flinches as she turns to look back at her assailant, uneasiness written on her face. "... he said. Congratulations, he told me to say."
