Chapter 4 Target

  • Chapter 4- Target
  • The fear spread to Elise
  • entirely that halted her breathing. The man Samantha talking right now is no
  • other than the villain in the early chapter of the novel. He’s a complete
  • psycho! A nut dog who has a sadistic tendency. Elise is having goosebumps
  • remembering the scenes from the book she read. Elise spend her time in the
  • orphanage creating a plan and she admit that she’s taking her time but his
  • appearance brought panicked to Elise, she needed to get her grief, it’s a real
  • thing but her trembling never subsides
  • The target is harmless for
  • now but she never knows where he will strike. Elise's mind quickly thinks of
  • methods but her nervousness is getting in the way. She wanted to curse right
  • and then she noticed Alicia, the protagonist who experienced the abuse. Elise
  • carefully opens her memory. The author write how Zachary hates dumb children.
  • He hated them to the bones that made Elise suffered while reading the book and
  • almost got nightmare after the detailed torture of the children experience in
  • his hands.
  • Elise is starting to
  • Alicia in obvious, she can’t help to assume that if Molten see Alicia now
  • things will get messy. Alicia can't be targeted by the psychopath this earlier.
  • Elise planned to become a ghost and not to stand out same with Alicia. Alicia
  • stop reading and turn her attention to Elise. She keeps staring to her that
  • Alicia become conscious.
  • “What’s wrong Elise?”
  • Now that Elise noticed,
  • she looks paler and her eyes are bewildered. She got worried and held her
  • hands. It’s cold.
  • “I'm sorry Alicia but can
  • you please help me to go to our room? I think it upset my stomach."
  • The other kids also turned
  • to Elise and asked for her welfare. Elise isn’t feeling well and her teary eyes
  • look more pitiful.
  • “I will take care of Elise
  • and also excuse myself beside the director. We can just come back tomorrow.”
  • "Well, I'm also bored
  • so let's just go." other kids suggested too.
  • After they go out of the
  • room Elise sighs in relief. They made a note saying they will go out and put it
  • at the bedside cabinet. Samantha will see it later, they apologize for going
  • first and just said that they will be back tomorrow to continue the lesson.
  • The reason why Elise is
  • calmer now is because Molten didn’t meet the kids, especially Alicia and the
  • supposed tea ceremony lesson wasn’t in the original novel to begin with. That's
  • why it was fine now that it didn’t happen. It is nerve wracking but Elise
  • manages to have her mini escape from the villain.
  • Now that she thinks of it.
  • Molten is sweet and that is the reason why he can easily get the children. An
  • effective but disgusting trick.
  • After the simple commotion
  • that caused by Elise they are finally in their room. After washing they go to
  • the hall to eat dinner. Nothing happened after that because Molten is nowhere
  • to be seen and Elise is not tense anymore.
  • "Elise, are you
  • really okay?" Samantha, who is just informed by Elise's upset stomach, is
  • worried. 
  • "Yes, Ms. Samantha.
  • I'm okay, my friends help me to get better." Elise replied.
  • Samantha thought that
  • Elise was just being tough but didn't say anything after. She is more concerned
  • by the Duke who visited earlier. The Duke appeared to be a kind hearted person
  • but Samantha's intuition says that there's something wrong in his actions.
  • Nobles men tend to become more arrogant but the Duke has different vibes. She
  • can’t figure it out but something like a warm energy surrounded her for a
  • moment and the dizziness she felt while talking to the Duke subsided. Then she
  • turned sharp like someone is obviously giving her a lethal warning. It is heavy
  • that she has a little goosebumps. To Samantha’s perspective, the Duke did not
  • sense any of it but she was thankful to that because it made her think clearly
  • not be swayed by the Duke sweets words.

  • After dinner Elise goes to
  • her bed wearing her loose pajamas. The kids are now sleeping with her roommates
  • except for Alicia who is still reading. She can read the title “The Divine
  • Power of the Saint”. Alicia is so focused on her reading that she doesn't know
  • Elise is looking at her.
  • "Hmm" Elise is
  • enchanted by the sight. These are the exact scenes she read in the book.
  • Alicia who is engrossed in
  • reading the book “The Divine Power of the Saint” and feels a familiar warm
  • energy every time she's reading a similar book. It made her relax for some time
  • now.
  • Elise witnessing the scene
  • from the book “The Lazy Lucky Princess” is amaze. She wanted to clap her hands
  • and shout like a mad girl, it feels like she's reading a manhwa but in the live
  • version. Elise yawns and proceeds to sleep.
  • --
  • Early in the morning the
  • daily schedule began. Kids who are attending their lessons diligently are now
  • in their classrooms. Those who are scheduled for work went to work and just
  • like today Elise is scheduled to go to the capital to buy some supplies and an
  • errand ordered by the director with Martha and Alicia. This is an ordinary day
  • that happens that Elise didn't read from the book. The author of “The Lazy
  • Lucky Princess” starts her novel in the capital later after Alicia becomes the
  • Saint.
  • Elise has straight short
  • brown hair just like her eyes, a color of light hazel brown eyes. She really
  • didn't care though. Alicia Who is blonde and has lighter eye color, is ten
  • times more attractive. Elise really likes to compliment the protagonist. She
  • feels like Alicia is an idol and her bias.
  • After wearing loose pants
  • and white long sleeve Elise is ready to go. She ponytails her short hair and
  • wears a cap. If you look at Elise, you have the thought of her as a boy. Elise
  • is small and thinner unlike Alicia who is beautiful with her fair skin and
  • lovely face. Alicia wears their uniform with pretty white shoes. Beth and Sarah
  • are more than willing to touch Alicia's soft long hair. They help Alicia sometimes
  • in taking care of her hair but Elise refused it to be done to her. They are
  • worried about Elise looking like a homeless person but they didn't bother to
  • oppose her in the end.
  • Martha, who has long blue
  • wavy hair with a darker skin color wears a pretty mint dress. Her shoes are
  • pretty too and have lots of accessories. She clearly looks like a noble lady.
  • Elise thinks that maybe Martha is from the noble family before coming to the
  • orphanage. She is fifteen years of age and after five months she will be an
  • adult. Elise wonders if there is the coming of age ceremony like she always
  • read in the novel from her real world.
  • "Elise is really like
  • a homeless child." With a sigh Martha looked disgusted at Elise fashion.
  • "Ms. Martha, Elise is
  • comfortable in those clothes so I think it’s okay."
  • Alicia said looking
  • innocent in front of Martha.
  • "Ehem" Martha
  • didn't reply after her bad remark.
  • Elise who is now in the
  • carriage didn't mind the side comment of Martha. In her world she is originally
  • not a fan of dresses. She mostly wears pajamas and pants because it's
  • comfortable and her favorite is t-shirts and hoodies. She honestly missed it.
  • Elise thought that Alicia
  • ignored her choice and didn't bother about her but the Saint is a Saint indeed.
  • She takes care of Elise and respects her choice. Thank God Alicia is a good
  • person. She observes her likes too, there are times that she knows her favorite
  • food and the books she read. Though Elise knows mostly about Alicia from the
  • book she read, she didn't expect her to be thoughtful.
  • The carriage is finally
  • moving. Elise witnessed the long road and the pile of trees. This world is
  • beautiful She thought.
  • Elise wishes that she can
  • save lives and the tragedy won't happen. She wanted to try to live in this
  • world peacefully but she also knows that she didn't belong here and that she's
  • an outsider. Eventually everything will fall in the right place.
  • If
  • that happens Elise hopes that there is no more blood that is taken.
