The Villain’s Sister Suffers Today - chapter-80
That’s how I parted with the wizard.
And thanks to the magic she cast on me, I was able to move almost
uninterruptedly from that time on and into the forest. In a little while,
the magic will come off, but it doesn’t matter. Since I wasn’t in a
village, but a forest.
‘Only I passed this forest safely.’
Once I pass through the forest, I will be far away from the capital.
I grabbed the reins.
If it’s true that Ash’s ordered Dark Knights concentrated their
manpower around the capital to catch me, it will be much easier to move
away from here than ever before.
Yeah, once I crossed this forest.
‘It’s a shame that I couldn’t find a carriage to cross the forests,
Before entering the forest, I wandered around to find a carriage in the
village where I briefly went through the forest, but I was rejected
because they were all busy or full.
I was reluctant to say that I needed the horseman who could drive me to
the village for a long distance, expected for several days.
So I had no choice but to buy a horse instead. I couldn’t walk over a
distance that I don’t know how long it would be.
‘I’ve barely even bought this one.’
Is it because it’s a small town? I expected it’s going to be hard to
get a carriage, but it was harder than I thought to get a horse.
I was looking for this horse and I paid extra to get it.
‘But what I got from that was a piece of shit.’
I glanced at the sarcastic horse. A sigh came out. Was I unlucky or was I
too much pushover?
I think the luggage was the problem. I heard that wherever I go, I look
like a traveller or outsider.
‘But I need my luggage even though I won’t use it all.’
It wasn’t that there were so many problems that I couldn’t handle,
such as walking then falling down, not because I was sick. I just get
I walked a little more silently, leading a horse that seemed to be weaker
than me. And it was time for me to think that I could ride the horse
again by now that my feet were about to hurt.
“You really have guts to go through this forest alone.”
I was startled and stopped walking.
Covering their faces with cloth, with a blade in one hand, and a typical
line of colour that seemed to have been portrayed a lot, blocking the
“You must have noticed from the look on your face. Yeah, we’re
‘So they’re forest-thieves.’
“I won’t say much. Give me everything you got.”
Whether bandits or forest-thieves, it was no different than armed robbery
I frowned bewilderedly as I listened to the cliche lines that never let
‘I never heard about this anyway….’
‘Just for information, I looked up some news of this forest while
looking for horses. If I heard it was dangerous, I would hire two or
three mercenaries to accompany me. I heard it’s safer than it looks
because it’s a popular road. I heard merchants usually cross the street
Was it a lie?
It’s either, the person I asked was ignorant about this…… or this
bandit might just start their activities in this forest recently.
But I couldn’t shake off this uncomfortable feeling.
‘So why is every single one of those forest-thieves wrapped in their
face like that?’
Someone’s looking at their faces in a forest like this.
‘This is somehow…..’
“Kekekek, what are you doing? Not emptying your pockets and bags right
“Hold on, but what’s wrong with that horse? Who gave him that?”
“We’re supposed to distribute it fairly when we’re done anyway, but
some selfish son of a gun can’t stand it…….”
“Hey, you bastards, I can hear you all, so be a little easy.”
‘That’s true, isn’t it?’
Doubts hardened into certainty. So, no matter how much I looked at it, I
thought it was not just a group of bandits, but village-level robbers.
‘They were going to shake me off from the very beginning.’
This was the reason I couldn’t get a carriage to the village.
It seemed so. From their conversation. Well, from their point of view, it
would have been unnecessary and cumbersome to give a carriage to a human
being who’s they’re going to peel off anyway.
‘Oh, what a beautiful world.’
It was a world worth living in.
“Even if you drag time, it’d only be useless.”
“Wait a minute.”
A few men menacingly fixed their gaze. I quickly recalled how many extra
beads I had left.
Even if I didn’t calculate it out of the ordinary, what Ari gave me
remained the same.
‘No, let’s save those now. Even if I break the beads and return the
day, I have to go through the village and into the forest again.’
I must stop by the village. Other than that, I had to buy water and food.
‘It takes too long to go back to the last village or find another
Then the magic hanging on my face will be released before I even reach
the forest. I glanced at the horse standing next to me calmly. The water
and groceries were all tied to the horse.
A bag of beads is in my arms, and I had some jewellery in the case.
“……I just need to hand over the luggage, right?”
“Okay, now you understand what I’m talking.”
“It’s a wise choice.”
‘I can’t do anything. I just have to hand over my luggage and get
The little things I need can be bought back or saved after crossing the
forest. At the moment, avoiding this situation was my priority.
“By the way, that guy, unlike how he looks, his voice is so
“I know. He’s just a tough, plain-looking guy.”
“That’s kind of disgusting.”
‘The magic is still being maintained.’
No matter what they said, I didn’t care. I reached out to the luggage
bag that was placed silently on the saddle.
What’s in my bag? First of all, maid uniform, and how much money, the
enchanted cloth… oh, this is a little dangerous, and extra clothes,
I hesitated to pick up my luggage bag.
‘……. the shawl.’
There was the shawl in the luggage.
The very shawl that Ash had surrounded me when we talked in the garden of
the mansion before he left for the South.
“What are you doing? Why are you suddenly stopping?”
“If you’ve got your bag, hand it over quickly!”
The forest-thieves urged. I turned away.
“I have a favour to ask.”
“What is it? You want me to save you? Don’t worry. We’re not
murderers. If you hand over your bag, you’ll be okay.….”
“Please let me take one thing out of my luggage.”
The air-cooled down at once. As if they had made a promise, the
forest-thieves hardened their faces in unison.
“What nonsense is that? You think we’re funny because we’re so
“I’m not trying to steal money or valuables. I just need one piece of
“Hey, then do you think we’ll say, ‘Oh, yes, yes, please.’ Did
you think we’d say that?”
“Don’t nag too much. Hey you, give me the stuff in the bag, don’t
touch the tip with your hand.”
It was an expected reaction. Well, if it’s a robber, it’s worth it.
But I checked last.
“Can’t you really? It’s not jewellery, it’s not gold thread,
it’s just plain clothes.”
“He really thinks we’re funny, let’s break his one ankle and start
“Well, that means you can’t right?”
I bit my lips. I tightened my grip on the bag.
Soon I opened my mouth.
“You bastard robbers.”
“It’s not like I won’t give you the bag, I’ll only just take one
cloth, is it that hard to do? That’s why you live like that.”
“What are you saying now….”
“And what, forest-thieves? What’s with the names. Are you guys
forest-thieves because you are active in the forest. So if you were
active in the desert does that mean you’re called desert-thieves, and
village-thieves if you were active in a village? Who the hell gives the
idea for that name? Please tell him to take off his head from his neck,
since it looks too heavy and cumbersome for just a decoration.”
“What!? Give you my luggage? Just you know, I can’t give it to you.
So go home and clean up your horse and suck your fingers!”
I immediately got on the horse and kicked it as hard as I could. The
horse cried and began to run vigorously.
“Get, get him!”
“Go after him right now!”
Out of the way, I ran recklessly through the trees and the bushes. The
twigs grazed my face sorely.
As I heard earlier, it seems that the reason I was able to ask for a
horse was not an agreement between them, but it was a good thing for me.
Whoever it is, I really appreciate you selling me a horse out of your
personal greed to fill your pockets.
May everything is well and luck be with you.
‘I erase what I just said!’
I fell off the horse and rolled down splendidly. It was because the
horse, which seemed to be running well, suddenly fell down with its feet
‘You crazy, are you still tired?’
The way the horse fell and sank me was amazing. No, how can a horse have
such bad stamina!
I clenched my teeth and managed to pull myself up right away. But I had
to reel, swallowing a scream.
A sharp pain coming up from my right ankle, perhaps as I fell, it seemed
to have been misfolded.
God, those bastards were fast.
I tried to endure the pain and run, but there was a limit. I was soon
caught up by the forest-thieves who showed up.
“Huck, huck. How dare you talk to us like that and run away, are you
I can’t help it. I wish I had escaped safely, but now that it’s all
I’m going to believe was the time bead.
I put my hand into my arms without delay.
‘When I go back to the village, I take a shawl from my bag…… Huh?’
My hand stopped moving.
I looked around hurriedly. But I didn’t see anything rolling on the
“What are you looking for?”
The forest-thieves narrowed the gap with leisurely steps as if they
thought I might not be able to run any further.
I stopped poking around and then backed away.
