The Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 53
“Well…Is it really possible to become a lady just by ordering a lot of dresses, though?”
“It shows that you are from a family with the financial resources capable to do so. But even that is trivial. A noblewoman only lives for beauty.”
Nonna’s tone became even more adamant when I questioned what she thought of and continued further.
“It is the epitome behavior of a noblewoman to despise those lowly people who are caught up in the trivial worldly things of wealth and power, and to strive to improve her own beauty by being surrounded and ornamented by beauty.”
Putting her hand over her mouth, Ekaterina laughed like a villainess.
“How vulgar.” (Ekaterina)
Nonna’s mouth fell open agape from Ekaterina’ words.
“What’s that? What do you mean……by vulgar? Are you saying that what I have mentioned just now was vulgar?” (Nonna)
“Yes, that’s indeed what I said. Ordering more dresses than she needed, abandoning her duty as a member of the duke’s family to live a life of selfish beauty, I don’t feel she has any dignity at all. It was a stupid, foolish thing to do.” (Ekaterina)
“You, You…How presumptuous of you!” (Nonna)
Nonna exclaims, lifting her eyebrows.
“Your Grandmother, if Alexandra had been here, she would have had you whipped as punishment! Your words are an insult to the Imperial Princess Alexandra!”
“Oh my, I’m so scared. I’m glad my grandmother’s not here anymore.”
Despite her snicker, Ekaterina’s mouth twisted in a smile. It was because she had bad memories of her. She was sure the old hag didn’t have her brother whipped when he was little. Because if she knew that she did, she would have been the one to murder her.
“My grandmother is now no longer with us. Now that both grandmother and mother are gone, the Lady of Yurinova is me. That’s what my brother, the head of the family, has informed me. I will decide what kind of behavior is appropriate for a lady of Yurinova. I have no intention of asking you to teach nor groom me.”
Nonna began to tremble.
“You, you would need the authority of the princess…What do you think of the authority of the Imperial Family? I can’t believe you think you’re better than Lady Alexandra…” (Nonna)
“Again, my grandmother is no longer with us. And in case you didn’t know, she was no longer a princess when she married into my family. Above all, you are not an imperial princess, who are you to think that you are better than the Lady of Yurinova?” (Ekaterina)
She then added.
“Ah, our servant. By the way, did you say something earlier about the way I treat my servants? Is it enough to whip a servant who speaks out of turn?” (Ekaterina)
When Ekaterina saw Nonna’s face, she regretted it a little. The blue veins on her forehead had bulged to an unpleasant level.
Maybe she’s going to attack me? I’ve never been in a physical fight before, but since you’re in your sixties, I’m definitely not going to lose.
Just as she thought this, Mina quickly stepped in between Ekaterina and Nonna. She sheltered Ekaterina behind her back and glared intently at Nonna.
I wondered if she was staring at her neck and imagining how much tightening she would have to do to stop herself from breathing, like she did with the “Yes Trio”.
To her surprise, Nonna’s face immediately changed color when she saw Mina in front of her. She turned pale and backed away.
“Alexandra would never allow such an unholy person to be near her! Get away from me, demon!” (Nonna)
Hah? Without thinking, Ekaterina subconsciously summoned a certain martial artist in her mind.
“What in the world are you talking about?” (Ekaterina)
“How many times do I have to say it? My grandmother is no longer with us. And I will not allow you, a mere servant, to say anything about my personal entourage. Mina is a much better maid than you are. Thank you for showing me around. I’m going back now. You don’t need to follow me…Mina, let’s go.”
Ekaterina turned around with a sigh.
