Chris didn’t even have the strength to answer.

Michael leaned down and grabbed Chris’ hair.

H​e grabbed it so hard that it hurt to the point of skin on his head peeling off.

“It’s better if it hurts that much, because there will be more pain in the future.”

Chris’s eyes were filled with fear.

“How come…”

“Why? Of course, because you touched what’s mine, I hate it when anyone touches what’s mine.”

Michael smiled, showing his white teeth like a beast.

“Do you know why I’ve been looking after you all this time? Your family has to beg for it.
The Fabian family is the number one supporter of my rule.
But I don’t think I can stand it this time.”

Michael laughed brutally.

“It is treason to touch the Emperor’s woman.
You and your family will pay for it.”

Chris shook his head.

“Oh, no, no.
I-I was just asked…”

Michael rolled his eyes.

“It doesn’t matter who asked.
I have no intention of letting you off.”

Michael, who let Chris go, winked at the knights.

“Take him.”

Robiche watched Chris being dragged away with a miserable face and closed his eyes tightly.

Priscilla, clad in a cloak, said to Michael.

“Your Majesty.”

“You called?”

“Please free me from this.”


“I want you to loosen my hands and feet.
Isn’t that what you have to do first?”

“I will.”

Michael quickly untied the rope tied to Priscilla’s hands and ankles.

“Are you okay?”

Priscilla opened her eyes and glared at Michael.

“Thanks to someone, I got into a very rough situation.”

“That’s why I saved you like this.”

“Thank you very much for that.”

“Can you get up?”

Priscilla got up with her teeth clenched.

Then Michael took hold of her arm.

“I’ll help you.”

Priscilla did not refuse.

Perhaps because she was surprised, her legs were weak.

“But how did you know to come here?”

“I scoured the whole forest.”

“I’m so lucky.”

He showed up at an amazing time and beat the rapist.

She saw some blood in the process, but somehow it was exhilarating.

She didn’t know if she’d get used to seeing blood at this rate.

‘I can’t do that.’

Being next to the mad Emperor, she kept seeing blood.

‘I need to quickly get out of here.’

She couldn’t live by the Emperor’s side for the rest of her life.

Priscilla returned to the barracks in Michael’s arms.

Michael laid Priscilla on his bed.

“Don’t think about anything today and get a good night’s sleep.”

“All right.”

But there was one most important thing.

She was so hungry.

Priscilla sprang to her feet.

“What’s wrong?”

“I’m hungry.”

“Are you hungry?”


“Then why are you staring at me like that?”

“Because I’m hungry.”

The more she thought about it, the angrier she got.
Because of someone, she suffered and couldn’t eat properly.

“Stop staring.
I’ll bring you a meal.”

Michael had his attendant bring her something to eat.

After a while, the meat that had been roasted after trimming the hunted wild boar was placed in front of Priscilla.

Priscilla scrambled to eat the meat with a fork.

Because she was so hungry.

“Eat slowly.”

Priscilla ate the meat till she was filled to the brim and finished her meal.
Then she started to fall asleep.



Michael laid Priscilla down and left the barracks.

There was one thing left to sort out tonight.


In a small barrack in the corner, Chris was lying on the floor tied up.

The severed arm had stopped bleeding due to hemostasis.

Robiche did it.

But the pain didn’t go away.

Chris was out of his mind because his arm was cut off, and physical pain was inflicted on him.

“…Brother, what will happen to me?”

“I don’t know.
Your disposition will be dealt with by His Majesty.”

Chris crawled like a bug and hung onto him when it was the Emperor who would dispose of him himself.

“S, save me.
His Majesty will kill me.”

“Does this bastard realize how this works?”

“That was not my intention.
I was just asked.”


“Lady Jestina instigated me.”

“Is she now picking on another woman in the palace?”

“It’s true, believe me.
Please save me.”

Robiche shook his head.

“I can’t do that.
You’ve already crossed the line.
Because of you alone, even the family has suffered damage.”

Chris looked at Robiche with a despairing face and soon became vicious.

“Are you saying that the family is more important than my life? What kind of family can’t protect their blood?”

“Shut up! You bastard didn’t even care about the family in the first place.
If you did, you wouldn’t have done this.”

Robiche looked at Chris with a cold face.

“We cannot force the family to die just to save you.”

After a while, Michael entered the barracks.

“Is the conversation between the brothers over?”

Robiche bowed his head with a face of shame.

“Even if I have ten mouths, I have nothing to say.
Your Majesty.”

“You can go now.
The decision has been made in the Fabian family.”

Robiche’s eyes were shaking.
He looked at Chris once and then turned his head.

It had become irreversible.

It was sad to lose his younger brother, but Chris would have to accept it because he can save the lives of many family members who are responsible for his family.

Michael looked at Chris lying on the floor like a bug.

His face was already stained with despair.

Michael ordered knights to sit him up.

Chris’s eyes were on Michael.

“I just did what I was told.
Your Majesty, I feel wronged.”

“Is it unfair?”

“Yes, yes.
It’s all Jestina’s who ordered me.
She said she would give me money if I did her a favor.”

Somehow, he seemed to want to live by biting Jestina.

But Michael had no intention of allowing that.

“I know.”


“Jestina and you have been doing a lot of things.
And I’m the one who turned a blind eye to it.”

There was a glimmer of hope on Chris’ face.

“Your Majesty, Your Majesty.”

“Your eyes are alive.
It’s difficult then.”


“Because the hell that suits you the most is waiting for you.”

“I, if it’s hell…”

Michael said the sentence with a cruel smile.

“You will no longer be able to act as a man.
You will live as a eunuch for the rest of your life.”

Chris shook his legs and peed.

Then Michael frowned.

“Dirty and ugly…”

Michael narrowed his brows even more as he looked between his wet crotch.

“It’s disgusting to even touch a filthy bastard like you.”

Michael ordered with a pompous expression.

“Take him out and make him a eunuch, then dismember him and send him to Newkina Island.”

“Yes, Your Majesty.”

As the knights took Chris by the arms and dragged him out, Chris exclaimed.

“Your Majesty, please kill me!”

Michael smiled as if he knew that would happen.

Newkina Island was the place where sinners who had committed great crimes went.

It was a living hell for sinners to the point where they automatically asked to be killed.

Chris was taken there.

Perhaps even when he died, he wouldn’t be able to get out of there.


Robiche came to Jestina.

The business was due to Chris.

As the atmosphere became unusual, the princesses stepped aside on their own.

When left alone, Robiche said.

“Why did you do that.”

“What do you mean all of a sudden?”

“Why did you incite my brother to do such a thing?”

“I don’t know what the lord is talking about.”

Robiche rolled up the corners of his mouth.

“Are you going to pretend?”

“Please leave now.
I’m so offended that I don’t want to talk to you anymore.”

“It’s sad that the person who made my brother go to hell would pretend not to know.”

“Sir, please refrain from talking.”

Robiche shouted.

“Even if His Majesty looks after you, I will not forgive you.”

Jestina made an excuse to the end.

“I don’t know who your brother is, but don’t take it out on someone who’s innocent.”

“I already known everything.
I caught the lady-in-waiting you bought.”

Robiche beckoned, and a lady-in-waiting was dragged in.

Jestina pretended not to know until the end.

“Who are you?”

Robiche said to the lady-in-waiting.

“Tell me who ordered it.”

The lady-in-waiting answered with a fearful look.

“L, Lady Jestina gave me the money and told me to help kidnap Lady Priscilla.”

“Impertinent thing! How dare you lie before my eyes!”

When Jestina lashed out at her, the lady-in-waiting made a face of injustice.

“Lady Jestina definitely did it! I was the only one that did as she was told.

Jestina glared at the lady-in-waiting.

“Shut up.
How dare you frame me…”

When the lady-in-waiting cried, Robiche let her go.

“This will be reported to His Majesty.”

Jestina laughed at Robiche.

“Please do as much as you’d like.
I’m unashamed.”

“You will regret it.”
