Chapter 1.
From The Breakup Of The Marriage

“Say it again.”


“Oh, Miss!”


“You were yapping so freely, but now you’re shutting up quickly when I told you to say it in front of me.
Are you ignoring me?” I asked coldly.


“Oh, no!” A servant whimpered.


It was a glorious summer day.
In front of me stood a line of servants shivering as if it was winter even though it was midsummer.
Just because they didn’t notice me while I was walking by and talked behind my back.


“If you’re going to gossip about your master, you should do it secretly.”


I knew well that the workers of this mansion looked down on me, but there was a big difference between knowing it and hearing it directly with my own ears.


If I listen and move on, I’ll just be ignored again afterwards.
I opened my eyes fiercely and glared at the maids.


“I’ll give you a chance.
Say what you just said, again.”


The maid in question stammered, “Well, that’s…”


“Can’t you do it? You said I would do all the complaining, even though I’m an illegitimate child.
OH, did you perhaps say that maybe I wasn’t his real daughter?”


I was nit-picking because I had been sick for a week and this was my first time out after a long time.
The maids kept their mouths shut and exchanged glances until the end, and my patience eventually crumbled.


“I’m getting angry.”


“I’m sorry, Miss!” They repeated uselessly.


“Can’t you hear me saying I’m getting angry?” I worked hard to keep my voice from escalating.


“I won’t do that again!” The girl yelped.


“I told you I am boiling inside!” I finally lost my temper. 


It was the moment when I tried to push the maid with force.
They scrambled to avoid my touch, even though they were only maids, and it ended up being me who was pushed by the wind.




My body tilted backward helplessly.


Some of the maids reacted, but very slowly.
The pendant, which I always wore, fell to the ground helplessly.




My mother’s only possession – the moment that it broke, memories flooded in.


‘Yoon Autumn’


‘You may regret in one day’


‘Hold my Hand’


‘You’ll die!’




Yoon Autumn!’


I couldn’t get my head together as the wave of memories flooded by like a panorama. 


The scenes passed by endlessly, along with the voices of different people.


‘What is this..?’


A leap of autumn.


The scene of someone reaching out to me urgently – calling a low and familiar name – played vividly in my mind, almost as if it was still happening.


It seemed to be a memory just before I died.


A world with a scenery completely different from where I live now.


Fragments of the scene continued confusing me until they finally clicked into place in my head.


Only then did I realize it was a memory of my previous life.
Yoon Gaeul, who was born and lived in South Korea and died young at the age of 21, was reborn as Elodie Perdia.


Even though I realized it, I sat frozen in shock, and the maids who were looking around came to me.


“Miss! Are you okay?”


“I didn’t mean to, Miss…Please don’t beat me!”


“Miss, don’t do this, please! You have to wake up quickly…”


My face which looked up at the maids who dared not to touch me was restless and seemed to lose its color.


It was because one of the most important facts suddenly came to mind.


“…I’m screwed!”


“What? Will you take our lives?” A maid misunderstood my dismay and turned even paler.


“It’s ruined.
It’s ruined..!” I couldn’t stop repeating myself mournfully, though the maids kept falling deeper and deeper into their misunderstanding.


“Spare me, Miss! I’m sorry!!”




Disregarding the fact that there were maids around, I tore roughly at my hair in agony.


Yes, this was a world in a book.


And my future was supposed to be dark!



Elodie Perdia.


The only daughter and illegitimate child of the Duke of Perdia was a hateful character who caused immeasurable amounts of trouble with the power of the family on her back.


Her personality became more eccentric by the day because the family didn’t care about her, no matter what she was doing.


Fortunately, she was not able to go outside the estate much because she had a weak body, and she mainly bullied the workers in the house.


The title of the novel I read was: How the Adopted Daughter of the Villain Family is Loved.


Is the adopted daughter in the title me?


‘It’s absolutely not!’


Unfortunately, there was a separate main character in the original – Estelle Perdia.


Although adopted by the Perdia family as a political tool, she even captured my brothers and mom with her loveliness and had a happy ending.
It was a standard healing romance fantasy story. 


In the book, Elodie gets caught bullying her sister and dies… She wasn’t a bad girl at heart… She was just a supporting villain.


The shocking thing is that was not all.


‘I’m not even a real daughter.’ I recalled hopelessly. 


Isn’t it a fact that an illegitimate child is mixed with at least half the blood of a noble?


But Elodie was not the real daughter of the Duke of Perdia.
Her birth mother lied that she was his real daughter.


Sitting at the table, I clasped my hands under my chin and let out a deep sigh.


‘…my real mother!’


Having lived with no memories of my previous life, I have always resented my mother in my heart.


I mean how can I miss a mother who sold her child for money to her father?


It was taboo to bring up the story of my biological mother in the Perdia Dukedom.
It was because my father loathed talking about my birth mother.


Because of that, I grew up not knowing anything about my own mother.


When I was very young, all I knew was that I secretly overheard the maids whispering and talking to each other.


“Arcelia? That bitch is lucky, because after just one night, she got pregnant and got her share.”


“I know.
But do you know where she went?”


“I know.
There are rumors that she went abroad.”


“Anyway, I should live with flirtatious air.”


What I learned from the conversation was that my mother sold me to my father and left me.
And that she had the name Arcelia.


The story about Elodie’s mother does not appear in the original book.


‘It’s obviously because the main character is Estelle, not me!’


But there was a story about my real Dad.


One of the reasons I will die later was that I wasn’t the real daughter of the Duke of Perdia.


“Among so many novels, why must it be this novel?” I groaned to myself.


I’m not necessarily possessing Elodie Perdia; reincarnation may be more appropriate since I was born in this world and regained my memory somewhere in the middle.


A few days after I regained my memory, I found out the secret of my unexpected birth and even the memories of my previous life.
It all hit me at once, so it was not easy to understand this situation.


At first, I tried to deny everything, telling myself that it was all a dream.
And then I dreamed of a nightmare, a death that I had not yet experienced.
A memory this vivid couldn’t have been my delusion.


The life of Yoon Gaeul living in Korea and the stories of that book that came to my mind at the same time, they had to be real.


If I stay like this, my ending will surely be death.


‘I must survive,’ I resolved.


However, no matter how much I deny it, my past actions could not be changed.


The original book did not say why Elodie was acting violently, but I knew the reason after doing all that in the past myself.


My family was indifferent to me, and the attitude made the workers in the mansion disregard and neglect me.
As the only princess of the Perdia family, I had to stand up for myself and express my anger to the outside.
Only then could I protect my pride as a princess of Perdia.
At least, this is what I told myself.


Although it was a kind of self-defense for s
