Yi-Gyeol slowly blinked his eyes at the unexpected words.

“Use? Me?”


Sethian’s eyes sank low.

“There is a lot of useful information about the world you were in.
Science or civilization, it will be quite helpful for us.”

He must have understood, but Yi-Gyeol blinked as if he didn’t know anything.
No matter what Yi-Gyeol’s state is, Sethian seemed to have no intention to stop talking.

“Also, I admire your ability to shift your soul.
If we use it, we can easily get other people’s information, and it’s convenient for reconnaissance.”

“…It may not be possible with this body.”

“I’ve already confirmed with the owner of the tower that your ability will be retained.”

Sethian thought that Yi-Gyeol might feel shocked or betrayed because he has a soft heart, but he dared to say it nonetheless.

“Don’t tell me you think I saved you just for a foolish reason such as affection?”

Hearing Sethian’s cold words, Yi-Gyeol felt something stinging in his heart.
Maybe because he had opened up his heart too much, enough to think of Sethian as his friend.

He clenched his fists that couldn’t be clenched well under the blanket.

‘There’s nothing to be upset about.’

Why else would he be needed?

He should just be thankful instead for not being thrown away as a baggage.

After repeating those words several times in his head, all that remained was a tranquility that seemed to have hypnotized himself.
Yi-Gyeol decided to only focus on the fact that someone needed him.

“That’s a relief.”

With a relaxed face, Yi-Gyeol smiled sincerely.

“Because I’m a useful person to you.”


Sethian looked down at his face, capturing Yi-Gyeol’s reaction.

It was an incomprehensible reaction.
Normally, someone would have felt offended and repulsed by being used, but Yi-Gyeol seemed satisfied with the fact that he was worth being used by someone.

‘Is this also the peculiarity of the human being called ‘Joo Yi-Gyeol’?’

He didn’t tell Yi-Gyeol, that there was another reason for keeping him by his side.
That his personal interest in the human being called ‘Joo Yi-Gyeol’ doesn’t seem to cool down even for a little bit.

Knock, knock-

At the knock from outside, Yi-Gyeol’s comfortable-looking shoulders quickly stiffened.

“Prince, I’ve prepared the soup as you requested.”

Yi-Gyeol, who was on the bed, made a bewildered face for a moment and tried to dig deeper into the duvet.
He couldn’t get in properly when he tried to wriggle with his body that couldn’t move well, but he was trying to hide a part of his face somehow.[1]

After watching Yi-Gyeol as such, Sethian approached the entrance and opened the door directly himself instead of telling Lenox to come in.
Lenox, who was holding a warm bowl of soup on a tray, was puzzled as Sethian opened the door and saw him coming out.
Normally, he would have told him to come in and immediately leave.

Coming out, Sethian took the tray directly from Lenox’s hand.
He was about to go in as it is, but Lenox quickly grabbed him with his words.

“Your Highness, who was that person you brought in with you earlier?”

Sethian turned to look over his shoulder, holding the doorknob with one hand.
Lenox was one of the few people who had witnessed Sethian bringing Yi-Gyeol to his bedroom.

For Lenox, of course, he couldn’t help but wonder.
So far, everyone around Sethian has been looked up, and Lenox was also the one in charge of investigating what kind of person they would be when a new person came along.
In particular, there have been no new people around Sethian for a while, but it was really strange and suspicious that Sethian just let someone into his bedroom just like that.

‘I also don’t think it’s a bed warmer….’

It is a guy who is too skinny and scrawny like a straw to think about in that way.
Although the body could not be seen because he was surrounded by a cloak, he could tell just by looking at his bare ankles and exposed face.
If he receives Sethian with such a body, he will break in one place or another.

“I told you recently that I’m hearing a ghost’s voice, right?”

“Yes, you did.”

It was still hard to believe for Lenox, but he had no choice but to believe it since it was said by Sethian, not anyone else.
He occasionally saw him talking to something, and he said that he had heard the information about Canael’s surprise attack this time especially from the ghost.
Even before that, Sethian had noticed that there was an ambush, and it is said that even that was information from the ghost.

“That ghost is the guy inside.”

“…Yes? But isn’t a ghost the soul of a dead person?”

“Not anymore.
I gave him his body to live, so he’s mine.”

Lenox was confused by the sudden information.
The boneless man in Sethian’s bedroom was the ghost that had been helping them all this time, and Sethian created a body for him and settled his soul.

It is simple to summarize, but in reality, when you look at the actual content, it is not simple or ordinary at all.
Now he could see why Sethian got interested in the golden magic and visited the magic tower.

“For a while, I plan to keep him in my chamber and make it so that he can walk around.”

“Are you going to stay together in your chamber? Why don’t you give him a new room instead?”

Even so, it was not good to let him spend time with Sethian in one room.
For Lenox, he had no choice but to be wary since he didn’t know what kind of person the man in the bedroom was.

However, from the beginning, Sethian was planning to put Yi-Gyeol in his room.
He’s so fragile that he doesn’t know what will happen if he puts him in a place where his eyes couldn’t reach at the right time.
Furthermore, he also has to give him vitality several times a day.
It was only natural to keep him by his side.

“From now on, guard together with Kirsty.”

Instead of answering, Sethian, who left an order to set up Kirsty as an escort, entered the room.
Lenox looked at the closed door and still had a puzzled expression on his face.

Sethian came back to the bedroom and saw Yi-Gyeol covering half of his face with a blanket even while he was away.
The eyes that were rolling around curved their corners toward him, relieved that Sethian was the only one who entered the room.

“What are you doing?”

Sethian pulled the stuffy-looking quilt down to Yi-Gyeol’s neck and placed the tray with the soup on the side table.

“…Because I look really weird….”

His eyes are down and his voice is weak.

Sethian, who was looking at Yi-Gyeol’s darkened face, approached him and suddenly propped up his face.
As the startled Yi-Gyeol blinked and stiffened, Sethian, who grabbed his head and chin respectively, persistently made eye contact with him in front of his nose.
They were so close that they could feel each other’s breath and Yi-Gyeol was embarrassed because it was such a blatant gaze.


“I’m trying to find out which part does it look weird.”

It was like saying, ‘No matter how I look at it, there is nothing strange, you’re the one who’s strange’.

After looking into it for a while, Sethian pulled out his hand and raised Yi-Gyeol’s upper body up to sit, then he placed his weak slender hand on the palm of his hand.
Compared to his hand, it was about the size of a child’s.

“How much can you move?”

Yi-Gyeol’s fingers twitched a few times.
But that was it.

“It’s only this much right now.
I feel like my body isn’t moving any more than my old body.”

“Maybe it’s because you lack vitality.
I’ve only given your body vitality once, so if I fill it up frequently from now on, you’ll be able to move soon.”

Sethian gently put Yi-Gyeol’s hand on his leg and suddenly brought out his sword.
Yi-Gyeol was just staring, wondering what Sethian was doing when suddenly, with that sword, he rolled up his arm and tried to cut it.

“What are you doing?!”

Yi-Gyeol screamed in surprise and shook.
As a result, his body almost tilted over and collapsed, but Sethian managed to catch him.

“I’m trying to give you vitality.”

“By hurting yourself?!”

“If I want to give you the vitality in my blood, it’s only natural to do this.”

“Why should you get hurt because of me? Absolutely not.”

Yi-Gyeol looked at Sethian with firm eyes.

“I don’t want you to get hurt, and I don’t want to drink your blood.”

Sethian thought it was so like him, and so he pondered for a while what to do.

Sethian put down the sword, supported Yi-Gyeol’s back head with one hand, and pulled him closer.
The two’s faces quickly drew closer.

“Then I just need to supply vitality with something other than blood, right?”

“If that’s possible, let’s do it.
Is there any other way?”

Sethian recalled the various methods of supplying vitality that Roa had said.

“You can cut your skin and give it by blood, by a deep kiss, or mix your bodies.
It doesn’t matter which way it is, as long as it absorbs bodily fluids.”

As Roa said, it doesn’t matter if it’s a way to absorb body fluid.

‘Perhaps the greater the fluid supply, the faster he will get better….’

Sethian spoke slowly as he looked at Yi-Gyeol, who was waiting for him to answer with a clueless face.

“It was said that it doesn’t matter as long as you absorb body fluids.”

“Body fluid….”

Sethian’s lips suddenly touched Yi-Gyeol’s mouth who did not understand immediately what was said.
Yi-Gyeol hardened with his eyes wide open at the sudden event and trembled at the feeling of a soft skin lightly rubbing his lips.

“There’s something as light as this.”

Sethian, who had only touched their lips slightly as if tickling, suddenly pried deeper.
The hot flesh that protruded from between their intertwined lips filled Yi-Gyeol’s mouth in an instant.
