I Became the Tyrant’s Servant - Chapter 31.2
I quickly knelt at his feet. I can’t die like this.
“It is not enough to apologize with my death for not serving you properly, Your Majesty.”
But I didn’t really mean to die.
“But in my conscience, I cannot die without proper support for you. Please give me one more chance. If you give me one last chance, I’ll accept it even if you punish me afterwards.”
Cardan, who had been silent for a long time, bent down slowly.
Then my whole body hardened under the pressure that weighed on me.
Then a big hand squeezed my chin and forced it up.
It was a rough hand with calluses and scars, but I couldn’t frown once.
The face facing her with her head up was like a flawless work of art, unbelievable that he was the owner of a rough hand.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Cardan pulled up one corner of his mouth and laughed fishyly.
“Why is the duke apologizing when it’s the Count’s daughter who tried to harm me and had to get out of this room?”
I heard Count Young-ae’s footsteps running out of the back.
So only me and Cardan were left in the room.
It was unknown whether she was one step closer to survival or one step closer to death.
When Cardan reached out and held me, I moved my creaky limbs to get up.
Cardan walked to the table next to the bed and pulled out a chair and sat down.
She quickly settled down as he pointed to the chair across from him.
Cardan poured wine from the decanter on the table and handed it to me.
I hurriedly took the cup and poured it into my mouth.
Last time, I was hit hard by alcohol, but I couldn’t refuse now that the guillotine was in front of me.
Cardan watched me swallowing alcohol without saying a word, and slowly opened his mouth.
“I trusted the Duke’s eye, but I’m very disappointed.”
“I have no face. Your Majesty.”
“I’ve never seen a woman as fierce as Count Young-ae of Linoa. There are no other wild animals.”
Cardan clicked his tongue.
“How did she get her education?”
The Count’s love is fierce.
Big eyes that will shed tears, soft body that will break when touched, and voice like jade beads rolling on a tray.
No matter how much I looked at it, she was a woman who had no place to be fierce.
I gulped down in confusion.
I couldn’t figure out what the hell happened.
“Well, may I ask you exactly what went against your heart?”
No matter how much I thought about it, I couldn’t see why he didn’t like her.
She’s pretty, she’s in great shape, she’s in love with the emperor’s face, and she’s ready to take it out.
If he’s the king of the original work, it’s normal that she can’t see his nose for days because he’s stuck in his bedroom.
Cardan filled my glass again.
Cardan’s eyes crumpled bitterly when I just fiddled with the glass and didn’t drink it.
I took a quick gulp of strong wine.
Only then did Cardan bend his lips with a cool smile as if he were satisfied.
“She said she was going to bite me.”
With a strange smile, Cardan stretched out his hand slowly.
His long fingers came up and tapped my lips.
