Living As the Villainess Queen - chapter-101
Chapter 101 – Mysterious Expenditures (2)
She put it down immediately, her hands taking the thick pile of papers
with great urgency as she hastily flipped from one page to another of the
withdrawal history. Most of it was recorded transactions. But other than
the numbers, nothing much was on the report.
“Jin…” Eugene sighed as she tried to piece the puzzle together,
placing the documents back on the table.
They were so different from each other. So different from how they lived
their lives. Where in her original world, she struggled to save even just
a couple of dollars every day, here, Jin didn’t even need to think
twice about spending so much.
She could almost tear up at the amount of money gone to waste with just a
wave of her hand. It didn’t matter she hadn’t known about it until
“How could she just spend that much in over three years?!” she hissed
to herself in frustration. She huffed out angrily until she finally
calmed down, before she picked up the withdrawal history once more.
Every withdrawal was made through a postdated check.
The check was simple enough, though nothing she’d seen in Mahar, but
she could understand it’s basic principle. There was her name stamped
on the check as the guarantor, her personal stamp most likely.
She went through the withdrawal history one more time.
Each and every time, the date and amount varied. Which meant Rodrigo must
have withdrawn from the accounts whenever he needed it and how much he
needed. Which also meant Jin had provided him with a bunch of
At the reminder of where all the money went, Eugene’s throat dried up
as if someone was choking her. Jin had given him the money on a ruse
that she was buying ancient books from him, but she knows now that
isn’t the case.
Rebels. She was supporting the rebels.
Half of Jin’s money went to the rebels, giving them a hundred billion
dollars to aid their cause. She couldn’t imagine just how big such an
organization was to need that much money. Would her freezing the account
fix the mess she found herself in?
“No,” she told herself, “It’s not nearly enough to stop them.”
Despite everything she’s learned today, she found it fortunate that at
the very least, the public didn’t see the rebel organization as devil
reincarnated. So, fortunately, it meant she won’t be stoned to death.
Still, the amount of money Jin brought with her was too much to have
all been from her family. Despite her wealthy origins, their whole
fortune combined wouldn’t even amount to how much she had amassed.
She leaned back on the sofa, rubbing her temples with a sigh before she
stared blankly at the ceiling above her. So much to do, and she didn’t
even know where to begin. After some time, she finally let out a smirk.
She might have found a way to turn things to her favor.
No time to waste. There’s much to do.
It was a very busy day for her. After she met with the president of the
bank, she had immediately thrown herself to her duties of keeping the
palace in order.
For the past three years, the task was delegated with the General to
handle the internal affairs, which should’ve been the queen’s role.
So now, Eugene figured she should begin by spending the afternoon by
receiving the duties and responsibilities from the General first and
And while she was at it, she also took the time to convert a small space
in her bedroom into her work office, and there, Eugene spent the whole
afternoon taking off some of the load from the General’s work.
Moreover, it provided her a private space to work. She’s a little
unsettled by how freely people could come in and go while she was
unraveling Jin’s secrets little by little.
She also needed a little assistance every now and then when it came to
official affairs. And with the number of files she’ll be needing to go
through, she had to make sure it went to the correct person.
Still it wasn’t enough to keep her busy for a few days, only for a
As soon as the busy hours of the afternoon finally passed, she found
herself finally relaxing. And while physically she was unable to move
from her current position, her mind was still running miles.
She found herself unable to concentrate on dinner, so lost in her
thoughts, she completely missed the concerned glances Marianne sent her
And just like every evening, the king’s servants would come to her. It
had been going on long enough, that by now, it was already routine for
the palace staff to see the king’s servants visiting the queen.
As soon as Eugene heard from Marianne that the king’s servants had
arrived, she found herself reluctant to move. In the end though, she
nodded in acknowledgment as she figured it would be best to put her mind
to rest by thinking about something else.
The sun had sunk, blanketing the palace in shadows as the night arose.
With the servants leaving after their final tasks were done, Eugene found
herself alone in her bedroom with a dim lighting.
A voice shook her out from her thoughts.
“His Royal Highness, the Desert King.”
She stood up from her bed and found herself nervous despite the fact
they’ve been doing this every single night by now.
The king appeared in front of her, making his way towards her. Over his
shoulder she could see the servants scurry away, closing the doors behind
him with a soft click until they were finally alone.
It came to her that she never really saw anyone else with him around her.
Had it always been like this? She found herself embarrassed by his
impatient behavior, barely able to wait until the servants left them to
Once he reached her, he wasted no time gathering her in his arms and
pulled her close. He pulled away slightly, a hand gently holding on her
chin as he dipped his head to kiss her on the lips, moving his against
hers in sensual motions, prodding his tongue to part her lips open.
Eugene found her eyes fluttering close as she took deep breaths to her
nose as she enjoyed the sensation. She found him deepening the kiss, as
her grip on his shoulders tightened up.
She peered up at him gently, finally opening up her mouth as his tongue
quickly darted inside. She watched him as he kissed her passionately,
head tilted for a better angle.
Her eyes raked over his face, on his smooth nose bridge, to his long
This too, she noted, was her reality.
Suddenly, she found herself slightly nauseous as her stomach churned and
her cheeks flushed. She needed to get away. Not because she wanted him
gone, but because she was still too confused to understand her own
Her palms moved from his shoulders, and gave a slight push on his chest,
when he finally pulled away.
Kasser stared at her inquiringly as she averted her gaze from him.
“Can we not do it tonight?” she finally asked him, and he became even
“What is it? Did I make you angry? Or do you feel unwell again?”
Eugene shook her head in response.
“None of that.” she told him, “I’m just not in the mood right
