William, who was moaning as if he had hit hard, looked at his shoulder and turned his eyes up.
A large sword was stuck like a spike on his shoulder, which was bleeding like being stabbed by a harpoon.


“Uh……oh, father.
Hah… save, save me…….”


Originally, it was not strange to die in shock, but William, who was drunk, struggled with pain without even fainting.
At least, he was wriggling on the floor with his arms intact like a worm that lived on earth as he was one.




Herace, who saw William groaning like a pig, gasped with a pale face.
He was the one who tried to take her by force, but she couldn’t believe how easily this person looks like that.….
Her mind turned white.


But her shock didn’t last long.
A long leg seemed to appear in front of her, shaking her whole body who was unable to even blink.
And a black cape hanging behind his large back turned into a wall to cover her sight to reach William.


“……a bug that won’t come back to life if you amputate its limbs.”


Herace’s head slowly went up in the unforgettable voice.


And she saw it.
A beautiful face that she had tried to forget for more than three years, but she has never forgotten.
The silver hair reflected by the light that came through the curtains, and the shape of gold pupils facing her straight.


Herace involuntarily jerked back.
The man’s flexible jawline clenched seeing such a Herace and grabbed her back.
She heard someone crying with the sound of footsteps and then disappeared.
The sound of blood flowing like a river rang horrifically in the room.
Soon red blood scattered diagonally across the wall.


“My wife is under another man, not her husband…….”


Blood stains decorated the floor clearly as the man took a step with a low voice.
Herace quickly looked down at the sticky black blood, closed her eyes, and turned her head away.
As she tried to block her view, a big hand wrapped around her face.
He wiped the tears under Herace’s eyes with his right thumb.


Ezekiel said with a blank face toward Herace, who opened her eyes reflexively.


“It’s not something you can expect from your husband who you haven’t seen in a while.
Isn’t that right, Herace?”


For a very short time, Herace stared straight at Ezekiel.
The moment when the colour of her eyes clashed with the eyes of different colours, time stretched like a long thread and lost its meaning.


She didn’t respond to Ezekiel’s words.
Ezekiel also did not rush her for an answer.
However, one side had a vain expression and wet eyes as if would cry at any moment, and the other side only glowed with persistent eyes.


But it was just a moment.
The time that stopped quickly turned again.
Herace blinked and cried out, contemplating as if she had come to her senses.




She forgot Ezekiel as if the name of her son was magical.
Ezekiel tried to push her back who tried to stand up.
He grabbed Herace, who collapsed because of her tied ankle, with a cool look.


“……you are still.”


“Let go! Let go!”


The man in front of her no longer caught Herace’s attention.
Herace hit the man who grabbed her again and hurriedly untied the rope that tied her ankle.
They tied it so hard that her ankle was blue because blood did not flow in the meantime.


“Er, Erzen.”


Despite stumbling, Herace quickly went to the cage where Erzen was trapped.
The child remained motionless as if he was dead.
Herace grabbed the door of the cage and shook it.
The thin bars were stronger than they looked, so they only squeaked and moved, but did not budge.




Herace, who checked the lock on the door, looked around and looked blankly at William’s body.
The body, whose shoulders were crushed and penetrated through the middle of his neck, made her cringe just by looking at it, but she quickly approached the dead.
As the distance got closer, the fishy smell of death stuck to the tip of her nose.


Herace knelt down in front of William’s body, not caring about the blood on the hem of her dress.
But as she reached to the body’s waist to find the key, a big hand grabbed her by the shoulder and threw her back.




“Herace, you are my wife.
So don’t touch other men recklessly.”


Contrary to the calm tone, the man’s body was full of pointed jealousy.
He stared at William, who had already died, as if wanting to kill him again.
Pushing Herace away, he began to search the body’s waist and pockets.
Soon a bundle of bloody keys was caught in the man’s big hand and made a clatter.


“Hey, give it to me.




Ezekiel easily blocked Herace, who was trying to snatch the key, and walked in a big stride without saying a word.
Herace hurried after him and looked anxious.


Ezekiel, who arrived in front of the cage, put the key in the lock, but the first attempt failed.
Ezekiel then calmly picked up the key.


But the second time was also a failure.
Herace’s face turned pale.
Eventually, when even the third key could not open the lock, Herace, who was in agony, shook and reached out to Ezekael.


“I, I’ll do it.”


In her eyes, Ezekiel was too slow.
She was in a hurry.
However, Ezekael said in a more subdued voice, pushing the fourth key into the lock after firmly refusing Herace.


“What do you mean I’ll do it? Keep your mouth shut.”
