Becoming the Villain’s Family - Chapter 231
Since she can talk now, she can’t give him a card, so she gave him a light kiss on the cheek…….
“Father, I’m saying this because you don’t seem to know. I’m all grown up.”
“Who doesn’t know that?”
“I will be a mother soon.”
His body froze for a moment.
As expected, he didn’t realize that. Judging from his reaction, he must have momentarily forgotten.
“I can’t believe a child is having a child. A child who is already weak…”
Tristan let out a silly laugh, as if he only realized it then.
What does he mean that her body is weak?
‘Besides, is that what Father said?’
Aria had to look at Tristan in a new light, as Sabina had told her so many new things today.
He told someone he had never seen, no, to the woman he was going to marry, to give up her dreams and future and die together.
He even concocted a plan to get Sabina’s dearest person killed, leaving her in despair and getting her hands on her.
‘Did he really carry out that crazy plan? So Mother lost a person who was so important to her that she could say he was everything in her life. So she would give up on everything and stay on Valentine.’
A crazy story came to mind immediately.
She thought it couldn’t be, but at the same time thought it might have been.
Because, when Tristan first met Aria…….
“Why are your eyes like that?”
“When you say that I am a child with a weak body, it reminds me of my childhood.”
“When you were young… you followed me pretty well from the time you were the size of a little fox.”
She tapped her cheek with her index finger and pretended to be lost in thought, then exaggeratedly exclaimed “Ah!”.
“Come to think of it, when you first saw me, you were going to feed me to the wolves.”
“Even though our eyes met, there was no hesitation in you.”
“Don’t you remember? I also remember what Father said back then. It’s been a long time since the dogs ate. They’ll kill you.”
Aria raised her head and lowered her voice as far as she could.
There was even the bonus of a languidly half-closed eyes, like even opening the eyes was troublesome.
Dwayne hurriedly covered his mouth.
It wasn’t exactly the same, but she got exactly the point of Tristan’s tone and expression.
“Did I say that?”
“You said I was weaker than bugs.”
“Hmm, you remember it for a long time.”
Tristan said shyly. And he, who didn’t even snort at most threats, avoided Aria’s gaze.
It was to hide his wobbling eyes.
He still had a relaxed smile on his lips, but it made him look even more restless.
“Then it went on without any problems. Lloyd came to me and apologized on his knees…”
“……should I get on my knees?”
Seeing Tristan’s cold retort, Aria let go of her hard expression and let out a laugh.
It was only then that he seemed to realize that Aria had played him a mischievous joke.
“Now you’re making fun of me.”
“I’ve grown up this much.”
“Yes, I will take back the word child.”
Tristan put her down, letting a laugh out of loss.
He looked dumbfounded, but his eyes were full of tenderness for Aria.
‘Well, even then, he tried to kill me as soon as he saw me…… Let’s just say it was because I was a stranger.’
Still, compared to what Aria had heard from Sabina, it was very harsh.
Anyway, after hearing about Aria’s circumstances, he did not hesitate to save her from Count Cortez. It seems that Vincent was saved that way too.
And although his expression was rather unconventional, it was clear that he loved his two sons.
When he saw Sabina, the deep affection in his eyes was dripping down so much that it couldn’t compare to when he saw Aria.
‘Tristan was more cruel than anyone else and a merciless slayer to those outside his eyes, but at the same time he was a devil Grand Duke who cared for and loved his family.’
He was like that even before he met Aria. That meant that Sabina had made him a human, who was beyond help before.
‘How on earth?’
What did she do? Aria became more curious about Sabina’s story, which was cut off in the middle.
“Your eyes have a lot of questions.”, Tristan asked quickly.
Aria didn’t refuse, and she answered coldly.
“Actually, I heard about Father’s youth.”
“Throwing away your own life and the lives of others like the life of a fly… how to put it, I heard you lived a life like there’s no tomorrow.”
Tristan turned to Dwayne. Dwayne waved his hand away, showing that he was innocent.
“I heard from Mother.”
At those words, Tristan calmed down immediately. Dwayne stroked his chest.
“Do you want to hear something about that time?”
“I just came to greet Father after hearing about you.”
Just to check how different he was than now.
“And I have a lot of questions, but I won’t ask Father.”
“Father won’t talk. Rather than persuading, you will only say you will kill me.”
“I won’t deny it, but…”
As she said, Tristan’s words were rather reticent. Although his vocabulary is unrivaled when threatening or teasing people.
He stared at Aria with a confused face.
The child was strangely twisted today. He had no idea what Sabina had told her.
“There’s no excuse for my words and actions back then. Please accept them humbly.”
He said while patting Aria’s head.
“If you’re done with your business, go in and rest.”
Perhaps he had learned how to pet her quite a bit now, her head didn’t rock back and forth like he did when she was younger.
‘You treated me like a child when he said I’m not a child.’
Aria tilted her head around with a sullen look. The look was so cute that Tristan laughed.
“I wish the child looked like you.”
The remarks were just said lightly, but it was sincere.
Tristan hoped that the child resembles the cute and lovely Aria rather than his son, who doesn’t coexist with the word cute at all.
Those words made Aria emotional for some reason.
