Adopted By The Duchess (coming soon)
Chapter 2 | The Garbage
I stared at the mirror thinking if this was all a dream or reality.
White like snow hair, pink diamond eyes, long thick eyelashes, pink rosy cheeks, pale white skin, and a beautiful face that resembles a doll with no emotions.
I have reincarnated into a beautiful little noble girls body. I wasn sure, but the pink diamond eyes made me suspect that I had entered Lilys body from that novel.
”How old am I this year? ” I asked the maid who was standing right behind me. Shocked by my question, the maid replied rudely.
”Have you already forgotten? How dumb can you be to forget that you
e 4-years old? You will turn 5 this year. ”
I kept staring at myself in the mirror while looking at Lilys beautiful face. I was so focused that I had completely forgotten to answer the maids question.
She asked if I wanted to have breakfast with my father, the Marquis.
I turned my head away from the mirror to look at the maids eyes, but her eyes were filled with contempt. I could tell she was looking down on me.
”Whats your name? ” I asked the maid.
The maid wondered to herself about Lilys question. Knowing her, she wouldn even care about her surroundings, because Lily lost interest in everything. Lily was like a living doll, with no emotion or ambitions, just waiting for the day she would be used until she gets thrown away.
The maid took Lilys question lightly and answered it as if it wasn something serious and that she was overthinking.
”Have you forgotten my name? Its Maria. How dumb can you be to forget not only your age but my name too? Do you have no shame at all? ”
The maid stared at me as she said those words with confidence. She was not only looking down on me but was also disrespecting me. Knowing that the Marquis won care about the maids behavior towards me. She decided to treat me as if I was something lower than her while forgetting her own place.
Thankfully, when I entered this body lilys memories flowed in my head. To think this character not only didn learn what emotions are but was also looked down on and disrespected by the ones who were under her.
Its a miracle that she already knows how to speak. Thats why I decided I won live my life as someone who can be used or disrespected by others until the day I die. Not like how I was treated in my past life..
Shall we teach this maid her place?
I glared at the maid who was looking down on me and said. ”Can you remind me of my name? ”
The maid was confused at the little girls question. It was weird for a 4-years old child to ask a maid all of a sudden for their own name. She thought the little girl had finally become dumb yet her glare felt like it was piercing her.
”Lily. Lily Forestier. ” Said the maid.
I had little suspicion whether I was Lily from that novel or another person. But thanks to the maids reply, I managed to confirm that I was reincarnated inside that novel and became the first villainess. Lily Forestier.
”If you already know, shouldn you be already treating me with respect? Or are you perhaps looking down on the Forestier family?. ”
The maid was stunned at my reply. To think the girl who was like a broken doll waiting for it to be used and thrown away after would start showing her claws.
The maid started to panic as I kept glaring at her harder with empty facial expressions.
”No! How could I do such a thing? ”
”If you know that then know your place and get me ready, I will be eating breakfast with my father. ”
The impudent maid was shocked at Lilys sudden change of behavior. Not long ago, Lily was just a doll who couldn defend herself, she would give in to peoples words and start apologizing as if her existence was troublesome.
The maid turned around and left the room without a word, almost slamming the door after her.
”Did she just ignore me? ” I said in a low voice.
I didn really care that much since it will be giving me time to think and reorganize my thoughts after confirming that I have reincarnated in a novel I read before I died.
Even if my father, Marquis Forestier, doesn care about me. That doesn mean he won punish anyone that looks down on the Forestier family.
Where I used to live, there was a novel called ”The hidden white flower. ” The novel became popular as soon as it ended. It was the talk of the country.
It talked about a prince falling in love with a beautiful Dukes daughter, so common. Yet it became famous..
Everyone loved that novel because the male lead was obsessed with the female lead. But the ending made everyone go berserk.
The novel was known as a beautiful romantic story with a sad tragic ending with a total of 4 villains in it.
The first villain was the Marquis hidden daughter, Lily Forestier. The Marquis didn hide his only daughter because he loved her, but rather because she had pink diamond eyes. It was proof of having the power to create infinite mana stones at will.
As soon as he knew that, he hid his daughter and never bothered to teach her anything hoping she would only live to create mana stones for him. But luckily, Lily managed to learn how to talk instinctively, but she never managed to understand what emotions are and doesn recognize them.
At the age of 6, her father the Marquis passed away leaving her in the orphanage. Thats when the workers discovered that her eyes were proof of her abilities and started to abuse her in hopes she would awaken.
But she never did until the age of 8. As soon as she awakened, Lily went berserk and started to destroy the empire.
For a person who could only create infinite mana stones, she was far more powerful than the male lead of the web novel, the crown prince.
The only option to defeat her was to seal her power by destroying the crystal core inside of her body.
It was the most painful death someone could ask for, yet that was the only way.
In Lilys last moments, Diana Lancastra, the female lead who the crown prince sent to a safe zone came as soon as she heard the girl had powers of creating infinite mana stones.
When she arrived, she recognized Lily immediately.
Because Lily was Dianas dead sisters daughter who she thought died alongside her mother.
Diana kept crying. Regretting not knowing of Lilys existence.
What made it even sadder was that Lily kept enduring the throbbing pain just to tell Diana her farewells. For once, Lily wanted to live after all that she went through. Lily had lived the most gruesome life and ended in the most painful death.
Later, the author explains why Diana came rushing to Lily as soon as she heard about her abilities.
That ability was proof of having the Lancastras blood.
There was a secret passed down between the Lancastras that talks about the diamond crystal eyes. Only 1 out of 100 Lancastras can give birth to a diamond crystal eye and only that child who possesses the power can pass it down to their ancestors.
With that power, the user can create infinite high purity mana stones at will.
If the world knew about this secret, then they would use the child to get their hands on the mana stone and use that child as a tool and not a human being. Or even worse, they could sell their crystal eyes as jewelries or house decoration. Thats the reason why the Lancastra family hid the truth from the world.
People who know about the diamond eyes would refer to it as a fairytale or an old legend that doesn exist anymore.
But one thing is for sure. The most hated villain in that story was Lily who couldn feel emotions.
The author hasn explained much of her past. So, many didn really understand why she went berserk or what exactly she went through.
People thought it might be because of her awakening that made her lose control. Some thought it was because of how she was treated at the Marquis house and the abuse she went through in the orphanage.
But I felt jealous of her. When Lily died she was happy. She wasn forced to destroy the empire, It was her own decision.
I wanted to have that kind of freedom. But I was forced to follow what other people wanted. I had to live up to peoples expectations while throwing my dreams away.
Everyone who surrounded me was jealous of my appearance. They would end up lying to me, accusing me, hitting me, calling me ugly names, then throw me away after they were done.
All they had to do was win my trust by whispering lies to my ears. As long as they get me to believe their words, and I start to believe them.
They start stabbing me, destroying me, and crushing me.
Because of them.. I hated compliments.. It felt more of a lie than a kind word.
I became a living doll with no emotions at the young age of 5.
While Lily lived her whole life without feeling emotions.
At that time, I thought to myself that we were similar. We just want to feel emotions. We want to understand them. We want to laugh and cry like everyone else.
We want to feel love and to be loved.
We want someone to trust. Someone who holds us dearly in their arms.
Someone who makes us want to keep living.
But at the age of 16, while I was organizing my books on my desk located at the end of the class near the window. Out of nowhere, a girl came to me and pushed me to the wall. She was mad because her oyfriend talked to me. When I told her he came to me to ask about directions, she got mad and pushed me harder enough to make the window behind me break, and I fell from the 3rd floor and died.
In the end, I haven found that person but Lily did. It was her aunt, the duchess.
For once, I felt jealous. I wanted to be like Lily. You can say it was nice to want something for once.
But I didn really mean it!!
Now that I have become Lily Forestier, I have to think of a way to survive. I only have 4 years left before I go berserk.
First, I need to find a way to avoid being sent to the orphanage. I can run away since I could end up in a place even worse than that orphanage, I need a place that can protect me.
Second, I have to find the reason why Lily went berserk in the first place and find a way to avoid that. For now I have four theories.
The first one is Lilys own decision since she got abused not only in the Marquises estate, but also in the orphanage. But its highly unlikely because it was mentioned that Lily wasn able to stop.
The second theory is because of the orphanage. The abused that Lily went through in the orphanage has affected her awakening.
The third theory, her mana core being unable to withstand her power. She was so young when she awakened so there is a chance it might be because of that.
Lastly and the worst-case scenario is that none of them are the reason why Lily went berserk and that Lily is fated to die.
As I was thinking, suddenly, the door opened without being knocked on. I turned to see whos the person who dared to come into my room without knocking, and to my surprise it was Maria. But this time she came back with a tub filled with water.
I never expected her to be obedient in the first place. But to think the impudent maid would not only bring cold water for me to wash my face but also pour the water tub on me while laughing drastically at me.
I hope you like my first every chapter realised on webnovel~
