t of his actions.”

Was the Duke afraid that he’d lose control? But I thought he’d be able to make it through a day or two.

Even when Duke Cassiar went insane at the end of the original story, he endured it for three days.

I mean, he didn’t have to force himself to sleep.

“The Duke is living under the pressure of losing loved ones again for the same reason.”

Is ‘again’ a reference to the Duke having already lost a loved one in an explosion?

Even in the novel, Duke Cassar’s insomnia was described as causing an explosion, but there was no detailed description of the past when it first appeared.

I wondered if the Duke was under the influence of sleeping medication while risking his life because he had lost someone.

“It’s a well-known story, and I’m sure Madam already knows it.”

Kyle’s face darkened as he was about to continue speaking.

‘Looking at his physical condition, the Duke seems to have been taking sleeping medication several times a day, putting a strain on his heart even if he only eats once a week.
The poison has reached the organs of the heart.
He would not be alive today if the Duke’s powerful mana hadn’t protected his heart.’

The doctor, who was using magic to examine Duke Cassiar’s condition, made a tragic diagnosis.

He was lucky to be alive.

How much suffering had this man endured on his own?

The doctor had left the Duke of Cassiar’s bedroom, which I was guarding.

The Duke’s brow occasionally narrowed in pain, possibly due to the poison that had spread through his heart.

As Kyle had told me, I suddenly remembered Duke Cassiar’s past.

‘Due to the overflow of mana at the time, the Duke had to lose all of his parents, whom he loved.’

Duke Cassiar’s parents claimed that he was loved from a young age.

They stayed by the Duke’s side until he fell asleep, read a storybook, and sang a lullaby, even when he had insomnia.

Duke Cassiar’s first mana explosion occurred as his young body weakened and he became insomniac, and his parents tried everything they could to suppress his power, but they died.

In despair, the Duke of Cassiar attempted suicide, but the remaining duke’s employees barely managed to stop him and told him that he was the current Duke after a long period of comfort.

The transformation of a dead Duke into a living person was said to take a long time.

I understood the Duke’s feelings better than anyone else after hearing about his predicament.

For the Duke, his people are more valuable than himself.
To the extent that it was acceptable for him to suffer to the point of death in order to ensure their safety.

Was this why he was so obsessed with Milter in the first place?

In my previous life, I was once like the Duke of Cassiar.

‘Joo Hye, I have never regretted having you born into this world every time.’

My mother became ill after giving birth to me.

Since I was a high school student, I’d thrown everything I’d got at saving my mother, who was worried about me even when I was sick, making me heartbroken.

After becoming an adult, I worked more and earned money at all hours of the day and night, but my mother’s illness worsened over time, and the hospital bills piled up.

It was physically and mentally exhausting, but as long as there was a chance of saving my mother, I could do more.

My mother was unable to overcome her illness and died as a result.

To me, who had dedicated my life to curing my mother’s illness, her death rendered my life meaningless.

It was a novel that consoled me after I stayed in my room for days and nights without eating or washing and only cried.

While reading, I was able to forget reality for a while.

This world in which I was possessed was one of those novels.

Perhaps Milter wasn’t the only reason I got into this novel.

“It can’t possibly be……”

The nightmare might have tormented Duke Cassiar.

It overlapped with me, who couldn’t accept my mother’s death and spent the night crying.

I placed my hand on Duke Cassiar’s forehead.

I knew the Duke had been in a lot of pain for a long time, so I wanted him to sleep peacefully for the time being.

The Duke, who appeared to have his condition quickly stabilized, breathed evenly as soon as my hand touched it.

“I can’t help it; seeing that you’re still fast asleep by my touch, I don’t think I’ve lost my power.”

I have to be caught by him until the Duke recovers from his sleep.

Is it possible that it’s because I’ve been looking for Romaine since the early hours of the morning?

I fell asleep after checking to see if the Duke was awake.

Is it possible that I’ll fall asleep for a while? Just a little bit because it’s still early.

I closed my eyes and rested my aching head on the Duke’s bed.

Chirp Chirp Chirp.

In my ears, a clear chirping of birds could be heard.

The warm sunlight streaming in through the window glistened brilliantly.

Oh, I had a great night’s sleep!

I stretched and my body felt lighter, probably because I slept well.

But how did I get home yesterday?

I remember putting the sick Duke to sleep, but I couldn’t remember when I got home.

Come to think of it, didn’t I fall asleep next to Duke Cassiar?

But I couldn’t remember waking up.

The place where I was lying down right now…

I opened my eyes and took a careful look around before removing the blanket and ruffling my disheveled silver hair mercilessly.

This is Duke Cassiar’s bedroom, dammit!
