A Kind Goblin's Bird - Chapter 60
The long night comes and the morning finally comes. A bloody rumor spread across Yangan.
Song Geun-ryang, who had the largest drugstore, collapsed overnight.
The inspectorate who came in the middle of the night discovered his herb plantation. The plantation was burned, and all of Song Geun-ryang’s family members were imprisoned.
The people talked about what would happen to the family who were imprisoned in the dungeon of the Inspectorate, what people call a living hell.
The Demon King was angry, and the other side was the queen’s family.
First of all, it was a popular opinion that it had to do with the queen. There were several stories to back it up.
First of all, no one knows about the queen, Song Young-young. Song Geun-ryang’s daughter, Song Rayang, was more well known. As much as her pretty appearance, her arrogant and irreverent personality was notorious, but Song Young-young was not known for her appearance, personality, or anything.
There is only one thing she is known about, and they think that maybe she is an illegitimate child. That’s all.
In the Sun dynasty, illegitimate children were not treated well, so there was certainly room for anger towards the family of the wife whom the Demon King loved.
However, even if he was the Demon King, why on earth would he be so angry that one night, the whole place was devastated? It is indeed surprising that Song Geun-ryang grew and sold the herbs. But even if Song Geun-ryang did grow the herbs, to be caught and did not survive the night.
Why was the Demon King so angry? That point was confusing.
Since no one knows, the story was just inflated in its own way.
The same was true for Sa Heon-yeong, who was the one who destroyed the Song family overnight.
He could guess, but he didn’t know exactly what it was. He thought for a moment to listen to the story to comfort Young-young, but soon stopped. Young-young who screamed like she was going to die just by seeing someone who looked like that man. He didn’t want her memories to come back and remind her of whatever she went through. Rather, if she remembered, he was about to make her forget again.
He will make her forget in her heart over and over again.
By pleasure or by anything else.
Unlike the others, the son-in-law was locked up in a prison where poisonous snakes were released. Sa Heon-yeong said that if the son-in-law could confess in detail what he had done to his wife, he would show mercy like everyone else.
After entering the imperial palace, Sa Heon-yeong stopped. He suddenly raised his hand and sniffed his scent. He didn’t see blood, but somehow he felt the smell of blood. His hands smelled of ink, not blood.
Pfft, he sneered. This sentimental appearance of himself was strange and funny. He’s never done anything like this in a place where hundreds of thousands of people died. But he can smell the blood today when he hasn’t been properly stained with blood.
Sa Heon-yeong quietly rolled up his fist and clenched it.
It was a strange thing. He was angry. The one who made Young-Young scream like that, or the one who hurt her body. He was going to tear anyone to shreds.
Even the humans who made her say, ‘I’m a lowly bitch’, he won’t let them all go. He’ll make everyone pay for it. Young-young will not know what they have been through, but they will never be able to close their eyes at ease.
But what is this feeling?
The previous anger was hot, like a fever had risen. It was a feeling that made him want to slash the entire world by swinging my sword, but now it’s different.
This anger was cold. It was chilly. He used to feel like his reason was paralyzed, but now his reason is at a standstill. His senses become sensitive. Contrary to wanting to go crazy and set the world on fire, his heart becomes cold. Something was completely frozen like ice. He feels like he’s building a cold wall.
Sa Heon-young remembered his wife. Small body. Smiling face. Innocent eyes, as if they knew nothing. But a language that sticks out. A song no one can understand. He puts her inside his walls and builds the ice walls. so that no one can approach her.
How on earth should he capture this feeling, which is closer to resentment than anger?
Sa Heon-young closed his eyes for a moment. He’s about to come to Hyeonseon Hall soon, and he didn’t want to show Young-young this. He only wanted to be a gentleman.
“His Highness has entered.”
As soon as he entered the bedroom at the sound of the maid’s voice, Young-young, who had been sitting on the bed with her knees bent, lifted her head.
She was wearing a cloak, but there was no sign of her sleeping. As soon as Young-young saw Sa Heon-yeong, she jumped off the bed. Seeing her staggering as if she was about to fall down, Sa Heon-yeong immediately ran to her and took her close to him.
“A person who has no strength in her legs should not run like this.”
Young-young grabbed Sa Heon-yeong’s arm and asked, taking off his mask with one hand.
“Why didn’t you come at night?”
Ah, was it the first time?
