Chapter 133 – Let Me Go
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Regan
Leah was leaving.
Blain stared as the carriage pulled away, feeling a heartbreaking mixture
of emotions. Though he knew he had to wait, he wanted to run and stop the
carriage immediately. The thought of Leah spending her wedding night with
Byun Gyeongbaek made flames erupt in his heart. But Blain restrained
himself. He didnâ€™t just want to take her body.
He wanted her heart. Every time she had looked at that barbarian king
with her eyes filled with emotion and affection, it tormented him
unbearably. He wished she would look at him the way she had looked at
Ishakan. That she would whisper shyly to him with flushed cheeks and
If he could have her heart, he could give up her virginity. He also
thought that after she slept with that nasty old man, then she would be
much more willing to have s3x with him.
Blain had heard that Byun Gyeongbaek had bad taste in bed. There were
rumors that he had bought many pr0stitutes that looked like Leah, then
treated them harshly. If Blain let her suffer for a while and then
It seemed like a good idea.
In only a short time, he would put on the crown, and claim everything
that was rightfully his.
Blain left the sad ladies-in-waiting behind and entered the masterless
Princess Palace. He wanted to walk through it before the traces of Leah
faded completely. Walking down the silent corridor, he opened the doors
to observe each space. The living room, the study, guest bedrooms, the
storage room where her clothes and accessories were keptâ€¦
His footsteps stopped in front of the office, and he entered as if he
were its owner. Her faint scent lingered in the clean, orderly space.
Blain sat down in the desk chair and fiddled with Leahâ€™s quill.
Unconsciously, he opened a drawer, and his face paled. There was an
envelope sealed with the wax seal and something written in the corner.
The envelope shook, and he realized his hands were trembling. Tearing
open the envelope, he quickly read the single page, and then all the
documents that had been placed beside it.
They explained how Leahâ€™s goods were to be divided between the
ladies-in-waiting of the Princess Palace, and the nobles that had
followed her. Given how painstakingly she had written down what she was
giving to each person, he couldnâ€™t help cursing.
Tearing up her will and the documents, Blain stormed out of the office.
As soon as he exited the palace, he saw knights gathered nearby. His
attendant had been waiting with the carriage turned away from the knights
and hurried over to Blain.
â€œSomething terrible has happened! The barbarians attacked the
Princessâ€™s wedding procession!â€
Blain felt something snap inside him.
â€œâ€¦The Princess,â€ Blain said between his teeth. The attendant
didnâ€™t understand the low growl, and when he didnâ€™t answer, Blain
grabbed him by the collar and shouted, â€œThe Princess!!!â€
â€œSheâ€™s been kidnappedâ€¦!â€
Blain let the man go and untied a horse from the carriage.
â€œTell my mother.â€ Mounting the horse, he said coldly, â€œI will chase
the beasts myself.â€
As soon as they confirmed their King had his bride in his arms, the
Kurkans sounded the battle horns to retreat. All of them stopped fighting
and galloped swiftly away, leaving the corpses and blood-soaked eulalies
behind. Only when they reached the edge of the plains did the relentless
Other Kurkans had been waiting in advance. Morga was waiting near a
carriage of smooth, unpatterned ebony wood and quickly approached Ishakan.
â€œIshakan, over here!â€
Ishakan slid off his horse as Leah struggled over his shoulder.
â€œLet me go! Let me go!â€ Leah punched him in the face with her small
fist, but it was useless. Ishakan only stared at her, and when he saw
that her hand was reddening, he grabbed her wrists to stop her from
He bundled Leah into the carriage, which had carefully padded seats and
cushions, as well as some blankets. She quickly scurried to the far side
of the carriage, breathing fast. For a moment, she and Ishakan were
frozen, staring at each other. Morgaâ€™s voice interrupted them as he
â€œYou have to give it to her right now.â€
Ishakan accepted the small glass bottle filled with a strange, dark red
Leah refused to open her mouth, but Ishakan grabbed her jaw and forced
her mouth open, pouring the liquid inside. She tried to spit it out, but
his large hand covered her nose and mouth. She scratched at his hand with
her fingernails, but he didnâ€™t move. His other hand closed gently
around her throat, rubbing. In the end, she had to swallow the liquid in
her mouth, and only when he was sure that she had swallowed it all did he
lower his hand.
â€œWhyâ€¦Why did Iâ€¦â€
