“Is that woman Rayang?”
A slow voice came behind them. A voice without highs and lows that did not seem to belong to humans. Rayang and the son-in-law looked back for a moment, forgetting to breathe. There was a man wearing a red goblin mask and Song Geun-ryang with a pale face.
“Yo, your, Your Highness.”
When Song Geun-ryang knelt down, everyone fell to their knees at the same time. The son-in-law and Rayang had their foreheads on the floor. Seeing their backs trembling, the Demon King shook his head.
“It’s a good day to not stir trouble, isn’t it?”
“I I am gratef,”
“Where is the Goddess?”
At that moment, time seemed to stop.
It was only then that Song Geun-ryang realized that he had another daughter. But it wasn’t a daughter. It couldn’t even be called a human. It, it…….
…… How could the Demon King know that!
Kwaang- It sounded as if the mountain was collapsing.
Song Geun-ryang looked at the spear stuck next to his ear. The blood on that spear must be his. His ears sting. He didn’t know how deep the cut was. The pain was strangely distant. It was unrealistic.
“His Highness asked you a question.”
Like the Demon King, his soldiers had no highs or lows in their voices. Song Geun-ryang raised his head. It was unbelievable.
The Goddess’ hut is located on the side of a small mountain. The only way to the mountain was to go through the house. Behind the small mountain was the cliff of the large mountain, so people could not come and go.
The poorly armed private soldiers looked at Song Geun-ryang and widened their eyes. Usually, Song Geun-ryang hated his illegitimate daughter, the Goddess, so he didn’t even walk in that direction. The only time Song Geun-ryang stood even close to the Goddess was when he sold her.
The road to the hut was straight. The dark forest road was lit up in an instant with torches.
Clang, clang. The sound of the armor clashing was eerie. Song Geun-ryang was walking along the forest path with the Demon King, dripping sweat and blood. What’s going on? How could the Demon King know that? He tried to turn his head, he couldn’t even imagine how the Demon King knew about it.
When he saw the hut, the Demon King raised his hand. Clang. The movement of the armor stopped with a unison sound. Song Geun-ryang trembled and looked back at the Demon King and his soldiers.
“I will go alone.”
As the Demon King said that and started walking, Song Geun-ryang panicked and tried to take a step. But at that moment, two spears blocked his way. The Demon King said he was going alone, so Song Geun-ryang could not go. Song Geun-ryang’s body started to sweat more. You must not go there If you go there, there…….
But the Demon King arrived at the hut after all.
She got used to the dark. But she had a hard time getting used to the cold or hunger. The herbs made her head dizzy and she could not sleep. It reminded her of the mountain goblin she saw earlier.
The goblin’s eyes, which asked if she would become a bride, kept failing to disappear from her mind. The goblin had somewhere to go for a while, and he gently stroked the woman’s cheek and said.
‘I’ll come to pick you up before the day goes by. It’s okay, you can sleep, but you can’t go anywhere else.’
The goblin said so and left.
The woman remembered those words and smiled brightly.The woman actually thought she would never meet the goblin forever.
You’re a good goblin. You disappear from the illusion and say only such kind words. The woman was so happy that she hugged the goblin. Then the goblin paused, hardened his body, and then he awkwardly embraced the woman.
Her heart was fluttering.
Even though she knew it was a hallucination, her body twisted for nothing. The woman closed her eyes and thought of the goblin. She then became a little less lonely. The hallucinatory goblin was closer than her dead mother. She was happier with the delusion of promise.
It was a promise that could not be fulfilled, but it was still in effect until dawn. The woman decided to enjoy herself to her heart’s content. Because this promise feels real. It’s as if someone in the world said that to the woman, see you next time. As if she was not alone, she closed her eyes. She was in tears when she was happy. Tears of unknown reason.
Someone knocked on the door from outside. The woman got up in surprise and wiped the tears with the back of her hand. Who is it? If they were sent by her father, they would have just opened the door.
A man’s face appeared in the woman’s head. The mean-faced man is her half-sister’s husband. He had come to the woman’s hut drunk once before. She ran away into the woods blindly as she pushed him as he was about to attack her. She hid in the woods all night, trembled, and only after dawn did she return to the hut. The fear at that time was still vivid.
“Lady, it’s me.”
