ho’ll be captured in this situation wouldn’t have a normal corpse afterward.
Even the servants who couldn’t understand their conversation were tensed by the heavy pressure that was emanating from Sethian.

After taking off all his clothes, Sethian gestured for Lenox and all of the servants to go outside.
As a member of the royal family, of course, it is only natural for the attendants to accompany and serve him with their best, but Sethian took it for granted from an early age to stay away from such things for his safety.

The Empress, who was said to be unable to bear children, managed to get pregnant but died as soon as she gave birth to Sethian.
It was a time when there were already three princes, and Sethian, who became the first heir to the throne immediately after birth, has been under constant threat of assassination since she was a baby.
If it hadn’t been for the protection of Antoine, the empress’ younger brother and the authoritative Marquis at the time, he would have died before he was over the age of 10.

Because of the thought that he should protect his body, he has been cultivating it regardless of whether it is martial arts, erudition, caution, or sense.
He had to judge and solve most things on his own, and he couldn’t trust others.
Even if they are intertwined with interests, there is no law that prevents them from creating new connections with others, so even if he somehow did, he couldn’t trust them fully.

‘There’s no human being who can be completely trusted.’

Everyone is driven by interest.
Such false words as trust are never reliable.

As soon as he thought of that, he remembered what Yi-Gyeol had said.

-I never cared about that agreement, I came to see you because I am your friend.

Joo Yi-Gyeol was the only person Sethian had ever met whom he didn’t have a point of interest with.
That’s why, even if he suddenly stopped appearing as he does now, there’s really nothing strange about it.

That should be so, however.

‘Something’s strange.’

Why are his nerves so on edge, and he somehow feels upset.

Does he feel lonely because he doesn’t have a mysterious conversation partner? Or is it because the interest that had just started to heat up suddenly disappeared?

Either way, it is true that he somehow feels unpleasant.
Even the fact that he doesn’t have the upper hand is enough to make him feel this way.

He dipped himself in the bathtub and swept his face with his wet hands.
As the warm hands touched his cool face, he seemed to feel a little better.

‘I don’t think it’s that bastard Zair.’

When Yi-Gyeol didn’t show up at the set time, the first thing he went to was Zair.
He grabbed him by the neck and tried to sense what he was thinking, but he didn’t seem to have met Yi-Gyeol.
In the first place, even though he was the only one who knew the time when Yi-Gyeol appeared, there was no way Yi-Gyeol would have gone directly to Zair’s castle and not to the Emerald Castle.

‘Joo Yi-Gyeol….’

It was only when he thought about what would happen if he didn’t show up like this that he realized he was seriously acting weird.
The golden magic that Roa was talking about even fluttered seductively in his mind.

Then, all of a sudden, the center of the bathroom caught his attention.
All there was was water vapor that filled the air, but strangely, he felt all his nerves heading edgily towards that place.
There was definitely something that wasn’t perceptible to humans there.

Feeling strange, Sethian rose from his seat.
The hot water reaching his pelvis obstructed the way, but Sethian continued walking without hesitation.
The closer he got to that spot, the stronger he felt that something was there.
It was a strange sensation, as if a pleasant coolness was caressing the back of his neck.

The moment he almost reached that place, he promptly felt like that spot was shaking.
Then, suddenly, something seemed to abruptly pass sideways.
Obviously, nothing has changed, but the location of the point that attracted his nerves has changed.
It seemed to stay still, but with each step he took closer, it also backed off little by little.

Something invisible was looking at him.
And it was responding to every move that he made.

Convinced of it, Sethian stopped approaching the spot and stood still.
Then, the wary point that retreated as it trembled also fixed.

Sethian opened his mouth while looking at the place.

“Joo Yi-Gyeol.”

The name that came out clearly echoed through the bathroom.
Then the point that had stopped moved once again.
Therefore, Sethian became sure.

“Answer me, Joo Yi-Gyeol.”

Not a sound was heard.
Nevertheless, Sethian did not step down.

“I’m calling you.”

That point in the air reacted once more.
However this time, it’s not retreating but coming closer.
It slowly, very slowly, came to Sethian.
