“I thought you would come soon, but I waited a long time.”

I looked back at Richard standing in front of the exit.

The exit is right in front of me.

But I couldn’t get in the way with this man.

“I knew you would come this way, of course.”

… While I was wandering, this man was waiting here leisurely instead of looking for me.

What I’ve done so far seems futile.

“I was anxious to see you, but of course if you were smart, you would have run away with the thought of making it up to me, right?”


Richard moved his feet as if he didn’t want to wait any longer.

And he hurriedly approaches me.

“What will you compensate me for?”

As I step backwards to avoid him, Richard sees me like that and laughs bitterly.

He tilts his head and looks at me.

“You may be quite disappointed if I ask how much I want this time, too

“… Crazy.”

“I’ve waited a long time, so won’t you kiss me as a compensation?”

Richard’s gaze turned to my lips.

But I couldn’t hear Richard’s words straight away.

He didn’t seem to want to let me escape.

“Are you going to hit me?”

Richard frowned.

“Why do I hit you?”

“Because I’ve been against your heart.”

“Why do you feel uncomfortable? We were just playing, right?”

“… Play?”

“Aren’t you supposed to play hide-and-seek with me?”

Hide and seek?

My escape was just a game for this man?

How the hell am I supposed to run away?

“Why do you keep running back? Rosie, you got caught. Did I win?”

Blue eyes looked at my legs.

It looked like it was going to break.

I tried to move my leg quickly to get out of that gaze, but I twisted my foot and fell.


Richard’s gaze turned downward as he wrinkled his brow as my hip hurt from the fall.

As I fell, the hem of my skirt went up to my thigh.

Richard watched the blood dripping from my leg, then strode over and knelt down in front of me on one knee.

Then he pulls my wrist and checks the wound.

“… There’s no way a wound like this can bleed so much.”

He murmured and grabbed my leg.

Astonished, I pushed him away when he saw a scar on my thigh.


He burst out of breath as if he knew it now, and smiled.

When Richard stopped laughing, the expression on his face disappeared.

The face that showed no emotion was frightening.

“It wouldn’t be easy to fool me this much.”


“I am very angry right now.”

Because I cheated on him?

“If you do this one more time, I won’t let you go.”

“… If you don’t leave me alone, what are you going to do?”

“I heard you worked long hours as Baron Sablen’s assistant.”

No way…

When Richard mentioned Michelle, I quickly grabbed him without realizing it.

His clothes were wrinkled as if to represent the urgency.

Richard smiled at my hand like that.

“That is your weakness.”

It was as if he had learned something new.

I was so surprised that I couldn’t control my expression.

“Do whatever you want. After all, it’s someone else.”

Of course I cherish Michelle, but she doesn’t know what this guy would do if he knew Michelle was my weakness.

“It’s okay as long as I’m okay. It’s true that I got along well with Michelle, but I’d be a little sad if she died anyway.”

“Are you going to abandon Michelle then? As if you abandoned me?”

Why are you talking about it now?

Well, that hellhole..

“Then it doesn’t matter if I kill Michelle?”

… Crazy bastard

Don’t be swayed here.

I had to answer that it doesn’t matter. But no words came out.

What if he really killed Michelle?

“Why don’t you answer me, Rosie?”

… Crazy bastard

I just bit my lip.

Eventually, I was forced to squeeze him by the collar.

Richard opened his eyes wide, and I overlapped and took my lips off over his lips.

He looked surprised, as if he didn’t know I would do something like this.

“You said you wanted a prize.”

I acted calmly, as if nothing had happened.

It would be better to just turn the topic off.

“I thought it was a cat, but it was a fox.”

Richard grabbed my shoulder.

“I don’t know because it happened suddenly. One more time.”


I kissed him again.

It was a soft and dense kiss unlike the previous one.


* * *


‘How much did we go?’

Panting out of breath, I begged him to stop, but he wouldn’t let me go, and eventually my lips were swollen.

He acted out of control like a child who tasted sweetness for the first time.

It looks like a carp.

My situation was no different with Richard.

Lips that used to be red are now red as blood and swollen like mine.

Being a Transcendental person, I thought that his lips were also made of steel, but apparently it wasn’t.

“Now give me your hand.”

Richard, who had bandaged my injured thigh, started bandaging my wrist this time.

Contrary to the face I remembered a while ago, it was so cold now.

“Next time, don’t ever do this again.”

“It hurts more than I thought, so I won’t do it anymore.”

Even though I gave him the answer he wanted, he seems dissatisfied.

‘What should I try next time?’

There was no way that the same attempt would work again, so I had to think about it again.

‘Now that I look at it, I think the complexion is a bit bad…’

Haven’t you taken your medicine yet?

Oh, I had a good idea.

“Do you want to sleep with me tonight?”

He stopped bandaging and he looked at me.

Richard’s face turned red.

“If you like it, I like it, but it’s still too early…”

“Too early… What are you thinking now?”

The lewd demon sitting in his head was clearly visible.

“Before, I saw that there was no one in this castle.”


“What if a ghost comes out while sleeping alone in a castle like this? It’s scary.”


“You brought me here. So, it’s your responsibility?”

He nodded silently as if he was okay with the brazen request.

Time passed and it was night.

As night fell, I wouldn’t be to separate from Richard.

<Can I go out for a while? You have to change clothes.>

<I’m not going to see you, so I’ll change here.>


<What if a ghost appears while you’re out?>

Richard looked absurd for a moment, but nodded readily.

‘You should never stop taking drugs.’

It’s cruel, but this was the only way for me to escape.

No matter what I did wrong in the past, I can’t be trapped in a punishment that I never know when I’ll be released.

Whether or not knew what was inside of his head, Richard smiled and teasingly said.

<You were afraid of ghosts.>


It’s kinda annoying.

So night came, and Richard and I lay down on the bed.

Richard wiggled and pushed his hands in as if trying to touch me. I slapped his hand violently.

“You said you wanted to sleep with me.”

“That’s right. That’s why we sleep.”

Richard let out a low moan as if he were disappointed.

It’s purely sleeping, how did you interpret it?

‘Isn’t that pervert?’

By the way, why is Richard being nice to me?

No matter what I said recklessly, I was puzzled from the moment he obeyed and listened to me.

When you brought me here to take revenge, what you did was like a manager serving valuable guests in a luxurious hotel.

I didn’t understand how you were trying to satisfy me.

Doesn’t it look like something you would do to someone you like?

‘No. If you liked me, you wouldn’t have locked me up like this.’

He does only what he likes.

He just a madman.

Actually, Richard’s feelings are irrelevant.

I have no interest in such things, and my only goal is to run away.

I lay in bed and waited for the time to pass. When I feel sleepy, I put strength in my eyes to hold it.

After such a long time passed, I heard a soft breathing sound next to me.


I cautiously called out his name.

“Are you sleep?”

No answer came back.

He seems to be completely asleep.

‘The novel described insomnia…’

What makes you fall asleep so easily?

What if I put a knife in his neck?

There’s really no movement.

I got up silently and waved my hand a few times in front of him.

Luckily he doesn’t wake up.

Now let’s find the medicine.

According to the novel, Richard doesn’t keep the magic suppressor away and keeps it near him.

It was to drink immediately when pain came.

The last time I saw it, it didn’t look difficult to hold because it was about the size of my thumb.

I carefully traced Richard’s body as he slept.

I had to grope him carefully, lest I wake him up.

‘Not here.’

So you put it in your pants?

Did you put it in your pocket?

I gently put my hand toward his pelvis.

A hard thing is caught in the thigh. Oh he put it here.

I carefully pulled the vial out of his pocket.

I looked at Richard so carefully, and our eyes met.



He looked at me without a word.

Did I get caught?I couldn’t do anything, stiffened, wondering if I would be frustrated again.

While I was nervous, strange words came out of Richard’s mouth.

“I understand.”

What do you understand?

“Because there are many types in the world.”

“… What types?”

“I didn’t know you would hit someone who is sleeping, but I understand.”

What kind of bullshit is he talking about now?

“However, if possible, why don’t you change your mind to what you do while I’m awake?”

Richard got up and began to unbutton his shirt proudly.

What are you doing now?
