book was still something I entertained up until this point.
It’s possible that the prisoner wasn’t who I had anticipated, or that the plot changed after I was born.
My stream of thought was interrupted by his stern tone.

“Yes, that is my name” Cassis replied.
“So you recognised who I am and ambushed me with your shady numbers.
You captured me on purpose to detain me here.

Oh, sh*t, I was right.
I had been transported to an R-19 novel.

“You seem really reluctant to reveal your identify.
Are you a filthy Agriche henchman?” he said.

This pitiful bastard.
He appeared to be aware in some way that an Agriche had kidnapped him.

Then again, my father lacked the personality necessary to hide his true identity or his involvement in a crime.
He carried out his plans regardless of what the general public thought and just laughed at disdainful or disapproving remarks.

I remained still and sighed lightly.
I said, “I’ve been curious for a while.”

“I asked who you were.
Answer me first,” he said.

I inquired what I had been wondering since yesterday, ignoring Cassis Pedelian’s fury.

“With your eyes, you can’t see anything, can you?” I spoke quietly.

In the dungeon, silence hung in the air between us.
When he responded to me, Cassis did not let his pride slip even for a moment.
“That’s right.
I’m blind.”

I moved up to face him.
His gaze precisely matched the sounds of my steps.
Cassis seemed to instinctively follow my motions and make eye contact with me as I unlocked the jail door.
It wasn’t surprising why I hadn’t been sure if he was disabled or not.

“How many fingers do you see?” I checked.
I waved at him while holding out my hand.

“Stop it,” he said.
Naturally, he didn’t directly respond to my question because he was unsure.
I was beginning to comprehend his character.
He was too righteous to lie outright.

I remarked, “It makes sense.
You were a bit unresponsive when we met yesterday.”

He would have displayed the tiniest hint of hesitancy when he first set eyes on me if his eyes could have seen me clearly.
Despite the fact that our noses were virtually in contact, his eyes wouldn’t dart back and forth like they were doing just now.
I was the first to realise how powerful my beauty might be, and besides..Cassis hadn’t recognised me.
I almost knew for sure he was blind once he thought I was a henchman.

His vision was clear when he first arrived at the castle.
Before being brought to the dungeons, he stared at my father, my siblings, and I.

One of the guards must have struck him with a club, impairing his sight.
He must not have been fed a paralyzing drug after all.
I paid special attention to his restrictions.
He still had heavy rope tying his hands and feet together.
Strips of nearly unbreakable demon leather were woven into the rope.
If the guards had to use superior restraints to hold Cassis, it must have been difficult to contain him.

The glare he gave me yesterday in this cell struck a chord with me.
Had the fact that we had previously established eye contact merely been a coincidence given that he was blind?

I lowered my gaze to his physique,, looking for other signs of major injuries.

Observing something, I ripped his shirt off without thinking twice, exposing his entire chest.
At my touch, his eyebrows sprang up in surprise.

Over his stomach, a little swirling tattoo had been engraved.
The black lines followed the ridges of his abs as they dipped up and down.
I was knowledgeable about this magic.
The spell’s target experienced extreme pain.
Cassis’ ability to still act rebelliously shocked me.

I muttered, “Don’t worry, the spell is only temporary.” As I spoke to him, I lowered my eyes and fixed them on his face.
He appeared to make precise eye contact with me once more.

It was impossible to miss his domineering presence.
When he was unconscious yesterday, he had made a nice and soft impression on me.
Today was unique.
His powerful demeanour and golden eyes exuded the presence of a nobleman rather than the aura of a seventeen-year-old boy.

“We’ll leave your eyes alone for now,” I said.

He didn’t appear frightened or anxious.
His eyes only observed me coolly.

I answered, “I know this spell.
“After two days, your eyesight should gradually start to return.
It would be foolish to try to heal you earlier.
The hex may worsen if I try to interfere.”

Cassis remained silent, as if he was questioning the truth of my words.

I quietly said, “You might not believe this, but I don’t want you to die.”

“You…” he said.
When he sensed the honesty in my voice, his expression changed.

I said “Please excuse me now” 

“Wait!” Cassis reached out to me blindly, but I easily avoided him and left the dungeon.

Jangmi – This chapter was fun to translate and it  feels like the start of something good.
Seeing Cassis helpless and tied up, yet still retaining his pride in his weak moments is just so hot.
