The Villain’s Sister Suffers Today - chapter-20

As he walked from the entrance to this place, Ash naturally took up the
surrounding his gaze devoured it.
So did I. I didn’t know Sir Davery was trying to call up for Ash, so I
stared at his familiar and beautiful face as he was getting closer.
Although I found out about it late, it turned out that Ash didn’t show
Behind Ash were a few knights, while some of them were dragging a man
Three men of different shapes and sizes were thrown to the floor of the
“Sa, save me.”
As I looked embarrassedly at the three people on the floor, Ash, who had
come, opened his mouth.
“Are you all right?”
I nodded before I realized it. I had no reason not to be okay.
Ash stared at me.
I was suddenly speechless when I was being stared at.
Ash, who came straight from his office and dressed in relatively
comfortable clothes, was still the most striking presence here.
As I often feel, Ash has a knack for just turning his surroundings into a
background in any situation.
Soon Ash’s eyes shifted towards Sir Davery.
“I’ve heard the report.”
“I’m sorry for bothering you.”
“It’s not your fault.”
Surprised by Ash’s voice, the people who were temporarily stiffened
soon lowered their voices and began to whisper to each other in a daze.
If Ash wasn’t right next to me, I would feel like whispering with Ari,
‘Who the hell are these people those were dragged in?’
At that time, I caught sight of the man, Kami young man. He had a firm
expression compared to the previous one.
“Well, I don’t know what it is, but I was all wrong.”
“Please save me.”
The three men, who had fallen on the floor of the banquet hall, soon fell
on their knees and bowed their heads to Ash.
Ash looked down at them and began to talk.
“There’s something I’d like to ask.”
“Yes, yes. I’ll answer anything.”
“Do you remember both the type and the buyer of the drugs you sold?”
There was a commotion all around.
‘Drugs sold? Buyer?’
I stared at Sir Davery and he nodded.
“They’re drug dealers working in the current system.”
Sir Davery explained calmly.
I was stunned by him.
No, let’s say that is something they’ve done. But, the question is,
how did he catch them so quickly?
It was only a while ago that Davery’s team sent a person up from the
After receiving the report, Ash would have ordered them to be caught, but
at a totally unorthodox pace.
In the midst of surprise and wonder, a dealer who had exchanged a few
more words with Ash raised his hand carefully and pointed somewhere.
“It’s the count who bought the drugs from me a week ago.”
Even before the dealer pointed him out, the man had been slitting himself
back, as if to run away.
Soon he turned his body. At the same time, someone stepped exquisitely.
Ash, who took his eyes off the falling man, asked one after that,
“What kind and effect did he buy?”
“Well, it’s just been distributed recently… It’s colorless and
odourless and tastes a little bit bitter, but you can hardly feel it when
it’s dissolved in a non-water drink as liquor. The effect is that after
a certain period of time after ingestion, the body becomes feverish and
weak….. The next day, they lose their memory after taking the drug.”
Someone spat out in a shocked tone as soon as his explanation was over.
“The Lady’s words were true.”
“I can’t believe it was true……”
I had something to say, too.
There was a reason why the man’s smiling face looked so vulgar.
It wasn’t because I was biased by his beautiful face!
“How could you think of doing such a trick against the princess?.”
“You’re out of your mind.”
Then the man who caused the commotion screamed out in frustration.
“Do you have proof?”
“Proof that I bought drugs from him and that I got it in the glass. You
don’t have it, do you?”
The man who fell down after being stopped while trying to run away
“I bought the drugs on someone’s request. I just bought it. I’m
innocent because I didn’t use it!”
Wow, look at this little bastard.
Apparently, I was right that he dropped the glass on purpose, not by
mistake. He believed in that situation and argued it.
Instead of replying to such a man, Ash asked the dealer.
“Can you tell the difference between a drugged drink and the one
“Oh, yes. Of course.”
“In a very small quantity?”
“It’s, it’s possible. It’s a drug I handle myself.”
Ash, who heard the answer, squinted at the floor.
The dealer followed it with a look at the floor which was messed up by
the dropped drink and glass debris.
It was the next moment when a dealer, who crawled there without
hesitation, took a drink from the floor with his finger and took it to
After tasting it, he affirmed.
“I, I’m sure. It’s a love potion.”
“That’s… the name of the drug I mentioned earlier.”
I was stunned at the moment. Judging from the reaction, I didn’t think
it was just me.
What’s the drug’s name? Love….?
“Oh, by the way, I’ve heard that one before. Love potion.”
“Yes. I thought it was a real love potion, so I was going to buy
it…..I didn’t know it was that kind of drug.”
A fan-capped lady muttered in a disappointed tone.
I shook my head inwardly at her naivety.
Love potion, such a convenient thing can’t exist.
To be honest, it was me who desperately needed something like that love
potion. Kind of drug that forces someone to fall in love like magic
through external forces, and if I had that, then I’d have….
Wait a minute.
I made a sound without realizing it. It was a matter of no reason at all.
The strange sound of calling me came to my senses. I awoke to the place
and opened my mouth awkwardly.
It was then.
It was a moment. It was between the brief moments when people’s eyes
were focused on me because of my sudden unexpected exclamation.
As the charges became clear, that man who had been driven to a dead-end
rushed to Ari, grabbed her and put a knife into her neck.
It happened in a flash. I fixed my gaze with glaring eyes.
“What are you doing? Let Lady Grace go now!”
“I didn’t expect this to happen…..”
The man, who spat out curses, continued his words, pushing the blade
closer to Ari’s neck.
“I want one thing, Duke Weedgreen. Please state that you will not hold
me and my family responsibilities for what happened today. Then I’ll
let this lady go.”
My mouth was wide open.
‘A hostage situation? You’re holding a hostage in a place with so
The man’s expression was solemn, but I couldn’t say a word because I
As if this was the only way he had left.
Surely what the man offered as a condition was the most pressing thing
for him now.
The fame, reputation in society, and facts that will fall when he is
found to have used drugs are not a big problem.
There will be scandals and scolding for trash, but it was a trifle.
What’s really important is to ask Ash the price for what he was trying
to do to me in the name of Duke Widgreen.
In aristocratic society, title and power speak everything.
It was really bold of a man who tried to drug me in that regard.
That’s why I thought his smiling face was vulgar, but I tried to
receive the glass that was served without any doubt.
It’d be over if he got caught, but I was wondering if he would have
done anything. Was he really thinking that he wouldn’t get caught?
Anyway, if it’s Weedgreen’s name, it’s not that difficult to drop
the rest of a man’s life into the mud when Ash makes up his mind.
Considering that, the hostage crisis was the last thing for this man to
No, by the way.
I bit my lips. Damn it, I let my guard down.
In this situation, it was no wonder that a man accidentally cut Ari’s
throat and killed her while pretending to be in danger.
It’s 7 p.m. now.
I was wondering how the danger would come to Ari in the banquet hall,
where all the dangerous things were put away, but I didn’t know it was
It’s so messy.
stamping my feet, I stole a glance at Sir Davery.
“Why didn’t you protect her?”
Sir Davery, who was condemned, seemed to have a lot to say.
Yeah, I guess so. I know. Sir Davery was reflexively blocking my way the
moment the man moved.
His job was to protect me first, so he did what he had to do. I know, but!
“Please make a contract that you won’t put responsibilities on my
The man hastened. He managed not to kill Ari yet.
But we don’t know when he’ll kill her. The man might soon have his
hands twisted regardless of his intentions.
Ash, who was just watching what the man was doing, asked, as I was
anxious to hide my nervousness.
“Should I save her?”
“Should I save the hostage?”
No, why are you asking me that question? I nodded urgently as I didn’t
have to think about it.
Then in the next moment, Ash moved.
I didn’t even see how he moved properly. It just seemed he had moved.
Soon after, the man’s scream rang out.
The man who dropped the knife knelt down.
Then Ari, who escaped from the man’s arms, rushed to me. I hugged Ari
in my arms.
“Eonni, did I live?”
“Yeah, you’re alive.”
“Tha, thank God.”
As I patted Ari on her head, I glanced at the man on the floor. Sitting
on the floor, groaning, he had his wrists twisted in a bizarre direction.
Ugh, that must hurt.
Soon some guards rushed in and completely overpowered the man. Ash’s
orders were short.
“Send him to his family. I’ll deliver his crime myself later.”
The captive man was dragged out.
It’s not a good sight to see, so I stopped Ari from turning her head.
The three dealers, who played the role of middlemen, were dragged out of
the banquet hall as they had appeared hastily.
The banquet hall became very noisy.
Maybe it won’t sink until the banquet is over.
Ash looked back at me and Ari in my arms and said something to Sir
Davery. The banquet hall was so noisy that I couldn’t hear anything.
Then Ash left first.
Sir Davery is approaching.
“Lady, please move away first.”
I nodded gently at his offer. Even so, we should clean up the dirty floor.
As I moved with Ari to the corner of the banquet hall, I glanced at the
entrance where Ash had already left.
My heart throbbed for a moment.
What came to mind a little while ago filled my mind.
I blinked my eyes.
‘It’s not a love potion, but….’
There was something like that.
My heart trembled. Is it because of excitement, hope, or joy? Or is it
because of tension or something else?
In fact, I couldn’t tell myself exactly which way.
