e to be treated this way!”

At first, he wanted to accept reality, but that only lasted for a while.
After being imprisoned in the dungeon, the marquis has been screaming and asking the knight to release him.
The knights were annoyed by the sound, but they did not touch him because Legion had something to say beforehand.

‘Don’t touch who is mine.’

At that words, the knights did not even look whether the marquis went crazy or not; instead, he just sympathized with him because no one was fine after Legion had decided to deal with the person himself.

“Tools.”

As a low, rough voice as if it scratched his vocal cords came out, the knight who waited quickly brought the torture tools.
The torture tools were lined on the tray, glowing eerily from the lamp light.
The marquis’ face turned pale after he recognized it.

“Please, please! Please spare me!”

Suddenly, the pleading changed into a desperate voice that echoed through the dungeon, but Legion’s expression did not change at all.

“It’s too late.”

Legion twisted the corners of his mouth, picked one of the tools, and approached the marquis.

“You shouldn’t have touched her.”

The marquis trembled at Legion’s words.

‘How did this happen?’

The true identity of the abandoned princess was a witch.
And the slayer duke who hated all the witches loved her.
What nonsense is this? It was a cliche that would not even appear in old fairy tales.

‘The Witch and The Slayer.’

What a funny combination! The marquis groaned and crawled backward.
However, the dungeon was not wide enough, and he quickly hit the wall.
He tried to run away, but to no avail, and the slayer was right in front of him.

The tools used to harass others have dug into the marquis’ body.
The terrible pain paralyzed his thoughts and made him howl like a beast.
It was like a nightmare.
No, it would have been better if it was a nightmare because that would be just a mere dream, not reality.

“Euaaagghhh!!”

A terrifying scream echoed through the tightly closed doors of the dungeon.
The sound continued for a long time, and it didn’t get quiet until dawn.

***

Luana, who couldn’t sleep, had been moving since early dawn.
She had planned to go to the kitchen and plan what she wanted to cook.
Wearing a thick shawl and holding a candle, she walked through the mansion, which became like a haunted house.
She was followed by a knight who Legion assigned to her.

The only thing that echoed through the quiet space was the Luana and the knight’s footsteps.
After walking for a while, she heard another footstep.
She looked in the direction of the sound and saw a familiar figure.
It was Legion.

Luana naturally turned in that direction, then Legion’s footsteps stopped.
She naturally held the candle higher and looked at him.
Through the dimly flickering candle, she saw his face and could smell the familiar smell of iron.

“Did you get hurt?”

Luana strode closer to Legion.
But as she approached, he stepped back.

‘What? Are you avoiding me now?’

Luana looked at him strangely and approached Legion again.
However, Legion kept stepping back, and she couldn’t get close to him no matter how many steps she took.

“Why do you keep avoiding me?”

Luana asked out of frustration, and Legion answered,

“If I don’t, someone will get hurt.”

“Who will get hurt?”

“Someone.”

While Legion paused for a moment, Luana took a big step and was finally able to get closer to him.

Luana lifted her candle and saw Legion.
She smelled the familiar iron, which was blood.
Then, beneath her flickering candle, she saw his damp sleeves.

Luana grabbed his hand like a cat.
This time, Legion didn’t avoid her.
His cold eyes were staring at her didn’t know what she was thinking.

“This is blood!”

With a fuss, she searched Legion’s body, but fortunately, he seemed to be not injured.

‘So, this is not your blood?’

A slight chill flashed through her back at that thought.

“Is it scary?”

Legion asked Luana.

“What is scary?”

“Whatever.”

Today, Legion was only spewing vague words.
But she could say this one thing for sure.

“It’s not scary.”

If she was scared, could she have come to like him this much? Luana said those words firmly.
Then a smile appeared on Legion’s face reflected through the dim light.

“Even if this is someone else’s blood?”

“Yes.”

Instead, she was relieved that Legion was not injured.
