More Than You Know — Chapter Three

I gasped, startled out of my wits, which surprised Shuell, who took a few steps back and stared at me with his jaw to the floor. Before I could react, he stepped even farther away. His big eyes darted from here to there, and he blinked slowly. I took a deep breath and carefully sat […]

I slowly made my way across and sat on the bed. I could still see Shuell as clear as day, crouched as he was. His whole body shook, as if he were contemplating running away. “Hi.” Everything started with a greeting. “I’m Arwen. You’re Shu, right?” He didn’t say a word, but his shoulders twitched. […]

More Than You Know — Chapter One

I must explain a few things before talking about the boy. Firstly, this world was set within a novel, and secondly, I had been reborn here.

Ten Ways to Get Dumped by a Tyrant — Chapter Three

Duke Arman and the duchess, who had been waiting in the carriage, glared daggers at me. My—or should I say, Scarlett’s—half-brother’s mouth was slightly agape. Isar Arman was Scarlett’s older half-brother. They used to be just like any other siblings, arguing all the time but still close enough. However, time had made them grow apart. […]

Ten Ways to Get Dumped by a Tyrant — Chapter Two

An engagement with the emperor was sealed with a magically binding contract. That meant there were only two ways to end it—death or mutual agreement. Which is why I really need his consent. Since I couldn’t just ask him to break the engagement, I decided to repulse him by acting crazy. And not just once! […]

The Tyrant’s Etiquette Tutor — Chapter Four

There was a long silence in the dining hall. Livia couldn’t find the right words to answer Croft.

[…]

The Tyrant’s Etiquette Tutor — Chapter Three

After the unforgettable meeting with Livia, Croft sat crookedly on the sofa looking through the endless piles of papers the duke had asked him to memorize before he ascended the throne.

With only one week before Croft would relocate to the Imperial Palace, Livia was confident she could find a way to be fired from the tutoring position.

As I headed toward Ashley, a man stepped in front of me, blushing all the way to his ears. “It’s a pleasure to meet you, Lady Bell.” “Yes, my lord.” What came out of my mouth was cold and unenthusiastic. Nevertheless, he didn’t give up. “You are truly as beautiful as they say. I—may I […]

The Villainess is the Heroine’s Biggest Fan — Chapter Three

“Boring,” I muttered after walking about halfway across the immense hall. For once, my lips did not twist my words—it was boring! What did Mary Bell do at parties in the novel? If I recalled correctly, she had several followers who always accompanied her at these events. Just as that thought came to mind, a […]

The Villainess is the Heroine’s Biggest Fan — Chapter Two

I kept trying to speak politely to the mirror all day, but my attempts were foiled every time by my disobedient lips. I woke up the next morning with nothing to show for my efforts, and I absolutely did not want to get out of bed. I sat up and let the time pass, sighing […]

The Villainess is the Heroine’s Biggest Fan — Chapter One

All I wanted was a quiet and peaceful life—not the glamorous life of a heroine, or to be loved by everyone. I just wanted a happy, sheltered life as a nobleman’s daughter. I didn’t want to get involved with the crown prince, either, if I could help it. You should at least pretend to get […]

The Tyrant’s Etiquette Tutor — Chapter One

“Ha.” Livia sighed deeply, gazing at her reflection. The young woman in the mirror, who had stunning blond hair and brilliant cobalt-blue eyes, sighed as well.
