It was a day when the dark night sky hung full.
The only light in the grassy space was from the full moon and countless starlights floating in the sky.
Somewhere in the corner, there was an old house.
The sound of sharp blades and the smell of blood came from within, making one raise an eyebrow.
“If you take one more step.”
Filina, who grabbed Cecilia’s golden wave hair, growled in a harsh voice.
“I’ll kill her.”
A sharp blade grazed Cecilia’s neck.
Her fingers began to shake.
Ian Albaar, who was gritting his teeth at the sight of them, had no choice but to call off all the actions of the Knights who had overpowered the rebels.
The voice did not come from far away.
Transparent tears trickled down the back of the hand that held the dagger.
They were the tears of Cecilia, whom Filina had taken hostage.
“Why did you betray me?”
Cecilia asked in a sad voice.
“…We were friends.”
Filina’s eyes touched Cecilia’s for a moment.
It was a very instantaneous moment.
She turned her gaze again, wary of the person who might jump on her at any moment.
Filina smiled briefly with twitching lips.
The knife she had placed on Cecilia’s neck added strength.
“Don’t make me laugh.”
Cecilia’s fragile skin tore, red blood dripping down.
Ian, who was watching the scene in front of him, glanced at Lawrence, who was quietly approaching behind Filina.
“Ha, but we’ve shared so much……”
Cecilia tearfully grasped Filina’s left arm in her hand.
Her face was already covered in tears.
“Then ……the stories you’ve told me so far.
“Were they all lies?”
It was as if the fact that Filina had betrayed her was more terrifying than the fear that she might die.
Cecilia’s voice was filled with grief, yet she didn’t want to accept the reality.
Filina, who had been looking down at Cecilia with an expressionless face, opened her mouth in a cold voice.
“Did you just realize that now?”
Filina examined Cecilia again, not expressing any deep emotion.
“We can never be friends.”
It was a fate that had been decided from the beginning.
The evil woman will easily betray the female protagonist and she will be effortlessly saved by the male protagonist.
This was why they could never be close.
“Filina, behind you….!”
At that time, Leon, who was lying in the distance, screamed loudly.
At the same time, someone struck Filina on the back.
Her face turned white as she choked, and she lost her balance.
After subduing her with a single blow, Lawrence forced Filina to kneel on the floor.
Ian quickly snatched Cecilia away from Filina.
The way he warmly embraced Cecilia as she cried sadly, it must have been the scene that the reader eagerly wanted to see.
“How shall we handle this, Crown Prince?”
Ian, who was holding Cecilia, turned at Lawrence’s question.
He stared silently at Filina, who was staring at him with her eyes filled with evil.
Filina had kidnapped the Crown Prince’s fiancée.
But that wasn’t enough, she had taken Cecilia as a hostage right in front of him.
This was a humiliation to the imperial family.
It was right that the rebellious Filina had to be removed from this place right now.
Even if she was lucky enough to get out alive now, she was a death sentence prisoner.
Lawrence called Ian again.
Lawrence, who thought an order to kill Filina would be heard immediately, looked curious.
He couldn’t understand why the Crown Prince delayed the order.
Lawrence lowered his gaze and looked at Filina.
Even though he didn’t know when Filina’s head would fly away, the way she stared at him with a stern look was like a fierce beast that had jumped out of the wild.
A blue streak of blood protruding from the side of her pure white forehead was clear.
She was the eldest daughter of the notorious Debussy family, a woman who carried all the bad rumors.
Recently, there had been talk of her being close to Cecilia, but no one could ever imagined that she was planning such a kidnapping behind the scenes.
‘She must have been blinded by jealousy out of love for the Crown Prince.’
As he quietly gathered his thoughts that had unconsciously popped up, Lawrence suddenly lifted his eyes to Filina’s.
The look in her eyes was incredibly sharp.
‘Is that really the way she looks at someone she loves.’
It was just a fearful look filled with fire.
It was as if she was confronting an enemy.
Perhaps Ian must have felt her gaze as well.
His eyes, staring at Filina, were persistent, as if he was trying to find out what she was really thinking.
Ian lowered his head, gazing at the woman cradled against his chest.
Before long, the crying face was gone, and only the poor girl, stricken with great betrayal and despair, remained.
“You tell me…”
“What would you like me to do with Filina?”
Lawrence, who had been listening attentively to Ian, frowned reflexively.
Asking Cecilia meant that he had no intention of killing Filina right n
