A Kind Goblin's Bird - Chapter 9
Song Geun-ryang was exhausted because of the black soldiers who stormed in when darkness had completely fallen.
“Ma, master. Master! Come on out, come!”
The butler urged him with a pale face.
“There, there’s something you need to know!”
Song Geun-ryang put on his shoes and left the main house. Even in the main house, his wife and daughter were trembling without knowing what to say. As soon as the son-in-law, who was waiting for Song Geun-ryang with a bloodless face, saw his father-in-law, he quickly followed behind him.
“Wha, what’s going on? Why is the Demon King here?”
Song Geun-ryang was startled by his son-in-law’s words and turned to look at him.
“Sshh! Are you crazy to put that name in your mouth now!”
“Sorry, I’m sorry.”
“I’m taking this stupid thing as my heir, tsk!”
Song Geun-ryang was annoyed and took the lead. The son-in-law glared at the back of Song Geun-ryang;s head with terrifying eyes. Meanwhile, he was approaching the gate. As Song Geun-ryang ran out, the son-in-law also ran after him. Two men, who seemed to have never run in their lives, jumped out. It was quite a comical picture of two people wearing silk clothes and seemingly running out, but not a single breath, let alone laughter, came out.
Song Geun-ryang and his son-in-law hurriedly knelt on the dirt floor.
“This humble person sees His Majesty King Mun.”
Song Geun-ryang knelt down on his knees and glanced around. Black soldiers could be seen encircling their mansion in double or triple numbers. Several generals stood next to a black horse, and a man sat languidly on the black horse. He looked very relaxed, despite his close-knit posture. Like someone born on a horse.
And the man’s face was covered with a red goblin mask.
Sa Heon-yeong, the fourth prince and the only brother of the crown prince. He became the Emperor’s supporter and received the title of King Mun. But the man was commonly called the Demon King.
He was called the Demon King because of that goblin mask. Since childhood, he was reluctant to reveal his face, so he wore a red goblin mask. Before entering the battlefield, he was called the Red-Eyed Prince, while on the battlefield he was called the Blood Demon, and after ascending to the ranks, he was commonly known as the Demon King.
Demon King Sa Heon-young. A butcher and war crazed, rumored to drink blood and eat human flesh, returned to the capital five years ago and became the Emperor’s left hand. He is the Inspector General with no room to escape. Afraid to meet that butcher, all the officials on Yangan do not commit corruption.
“You are late.”
The Demon King said a word casually.
“For, forgive me.”
Song Geun-ryang stuttered his words, feeling the hallucination of a blade hitting his neck.
The Demon King came close to midnight. The whole house that had slept suddenly woke up. They lit up the soft light like broad daylight, and everyone moved as if they had been whipped. But all of that is no excuse for the Demon King.
The Demon King jumped to the ground. He was quite tall and had a body worthy of his height. He was slender, so it was not appropriate to say he was big, but it was clear that he was of considerable physique. Yet when he jumped to the ground, there was no sound, as if cotton had fallen.
“Th, thank you.”
“Still, my father-in-law doesn’t seem very excited to see me.”
Father-in-law? Song Geun-ryang opened his eyes wide enough to pop out. So was the son-in-law next to him.
Song Geun-ryang had only one daughter. And the daughter is already married. The family has to carry on to the next generation, so he took his son-in-law in, and the son-in-law was right next to him.
His daughter, in a relationship with the Demon King?
Song Geun-ryang looked around the house without realizing it. His own daughter? How? With the Demon King? What?
“Is, is Your Highness talking about Rayang?”
The Demon King repeated the name slowly. Then Song Geun-ryang looked back at his son-in-law.
The son-in-law hurriedly ran into the gate. He ran hurriedly. His breath hit the tip of his chin, but that didn’t matter.
Rayang, his wife, had a relationship with the Demon King. As a result, the Demon King traveled personally to make Rayang his concubine. How could this be? Anger ran to the top of his head.
“What the hell?! Are you crazy?!”
Rayang spewed fire from her eyes. The son-in-law, who was about to get angry, was rather embarrassed and shut his mouth. Then, Rayang became more fiery and pointed a finger at the son-in-law.
“Tell me again, what did you say, now? Whom did I have a relationship with?”
“Keep your voice down.”
The mother, who was with Rayang, hurriedly stopped her. But Rayang, who grew up in precious gold and jade, did not listen to her mother, but only raised her voice.
“Do I look like I have a mind to let that happen?! The Demon King, it’s the Demon King! Oh my God. You were aiming for that crazy bitch and now I look like a crazy bitch?”
“Oh, why are you saying that again? When did I ever have feelings for that bitch?”
“When you gulped just looking at her breakable legs.”
When Rayang was about to seriously criticize him.
