Becoming the Villain’s Family - Chapter 202
Grand Duke Valentine came back alive from hell.
‘What the hell, what the hell!’
That devil had told her, so she urged her subordinates to burn the corpse quickly. But she didn’t really think that he would come back alive.
It was just something done with the thought that there was nothing wrong with being careful!
‘Could it be that the contract was unilaterally terminated?’
Veronica urgently checked the status of her contract with the devil. And she let out a sigh of relief.
The contract had not yet been broken and was still intact.
‘Well, that can’t be. If the contract is unilaterally broken, the devil will have to bear all the responsibility and burden.’
There was no way the devil would take such a loss.
If so, how the hell did Grand Duke Valentine get to be here? And in perfect condition too!
“Huu, ugh, kuhk…”
Veronica bit her lip.
She decided to use the power of God while enduring the bursting pain.
But it was strange. She poured her healing powers upon her severed wrists to no avail.
No change happened.
“What, what, why is this… It can’t be like this! It can’t be like this!”
In the meantime, Lloyd pierced the priest’s shoulder with one stroke.
The priest screamed and trembled.
He tried to get Veronica’s hand away without Lloyd’s knowledge. Even though it ended in failure before he even bowed down.
“Sp, spar, spare…kuhk!”
And he stopped breathing.
Lloyd picked up what the priest was aiming for instead.
It wasn’t the hand.
He tapped the hand with his foot and pushed it aside, grabbing the dagger hidden in the sleeve of her dress that was cut as well.
Lloyd hung Veronica’s dagger straight down her throat before she could speak.
“Why doesn’t the dagger react to your blood?”
It was only after hearing his words that Veronica was able to figure out why Lloyd had come and cut off her wrists.
She gritted her teeth and chewed more swear words.
Lloyd obtained the dagger that summoned the devil and at the same time tried to summon Mammon using the blood that flowed from Veronica’s wrist.
‘Because if you want to go to hell with a human body, you have to summon the devil first…….’
He had no interest in anything other than reviving Aria.
Veronica said, trying to swallow her groan.
“You have to have my will to summon the devil.”
There was no emotion whatsoever in his question.
He brought the blade of her dagger to her neck without hesitation. Gradually the blade dug into her neck.
“If it’s your will, then call him now.”
“You, you crazy!”
He doesn’t even give her a chance to think.
Veronica swallowed her groan and grabbed the blade of the dagger with one hand.
At that moment.
Veronica’s pupils widened as she saw Lloyd’s face.
It was a very bright black. The turbid aura as if they had been fogged up, was completely gone.
‘Isn’t that a sign of degradation?’
Veronica, too, has come to know since she accepted God’s goodwill into her body.
The first thing that changed when she accepted God’s feelings was her eyes. The more degraded the emotion, the more it fades into a paler color.
‘But why? Why alone?’
How could such a thing be possible?
Veronica was still hearing the screams of the constantly degrading feelings inside her. Her own eyes would be cloudy without her having to look in the mirror.
‘Did he make a contract with the devil?’
Did he make contact with the devil to come up from hell without dying?
But then he can summon the devil on his own, he had no reason to bother Veronica.
“Why! What are you!”
“Damn, why am I not cured!”
Veronica screamed in frustration as she was desperate and sent sharp shots of the power of the God.
She stepped back for a moment and Lloyd, who easily dodged, answered.
“You cannot use God’s power on yourself.”
God cannot use God’s powers on their own.
In fact, Veronica had just recently attained God’s goodwill, so it was no wonder she noticed now.
The problem is…….
Of all times, now.
“No, that’s nonsense.”
She has the power of God, but she can’t use it directly on herself? Veronica looked blank, as if she had been hit hard by someone.
She even forgot the pain in her wrist for a moment.
“Such absurdity! Then what’s the point of possessing the power of God!”
“Have you ever seen God use God’s powers for themselves?”
Veronica was speechless for a moment. She frantically rummaged through her memories.
She was horrified.
Because there really wasn’t.
‘Not even once.’
In the scriptures and in the numerous God-related books she encountered, God always worked only for humans.
It was as if God existed for humans.
“It seems like you didn’t even know that even after becoming the saint.”
“But, but that’s just a story made up from a human point of view!”
Veronica has believed that all her life.
Actually, Lloyd was no different. But following Aria around and thinking about what he saw and heard, well…….
He wondered if it could be said that it was all lies.
“That’s why humans can’t become God no matter what they do.”
Lloyd looked down at Aria in his arms. And he hugged her tighter.
She’s still warm. Like alive.
Lloyd pressed his lips to her forehead, a faint smile on his lips.
Then, the last remaining God’s conscience in Aria’s body was felt intact.
At that moment,
Veronica exploded all the energy she had in her.
“What? Humans can’t become God no matter what they do?”
She laughed and screamed like a madman.
“That’s only for Valentine! Even though you were born with a body that transcended human beings, you chose to sacrifice for the sake of this worm-like world because of your weak mental state!”
As the imperfect goodwill began to boil in her body, her body was ruined and flowed out of control.
But Veronica took advantage of the devil’s malice and she somehow straightened her body that was about to collapse.
She gradually changed into an ugly, inhuman look, but it didn’t matter.
‘If only I could become God!’
If I kill Grand Duke Valentine on the spot and claim God’s malice, I can reverse everything. And after that, I will also take the last remaining God’s feelings in the Siren’s body!
Veronica shouted in a bloody voice and unleashed her powers, which she had gathered to their limits, at Lloyd.
Then, suddenly, a grotesque figure popped out and blocked her vision.
It was the illusion spell, no, a curse, that Hans had cast on her before he died.
Losing her balance in her moment, Veronica stumbled. The power hit the wrong place and blazed through the labyrinth in a straight line.
You’re dead, damn it!
“Go, go away! Go away!”
Veronica stirred the empty air and screamed like a madman. And now she began to unleash her powers wherever she saw the terrifying visions.
A ray of light from the sharp shot passed Aria’s cheek just barely. Lloyd quickly covered his arms around her, though no damage was done.
Lloyd’s expression immediately changed when he saw the skin on her cheek.
In his eyes came the murderous energy that seemed to burn his retina.
HIs patience had reached its limit.
“It’s not even worth dealing with…”
He just didn’t want to face her.
Lloyd, who couldn’t even feel the value of speaking anymore, omitted his words. He lost even the will to give an explanation.
He simply stretched out his hand towards Veronica.
At the same time, God’s conscience that remained in Aria’s body wriggled.
Hearing the whispered words of the conscience, Lloyd spat it out of his mouth.
“Joy, peace, prosperity, dreams, passion…”
Conscience is the only medium between good and evil.
Goodwill that heard the call of conscience flowed out of Veronica’s body immediately.
Veronica made a dumb noise. The power was draining out of her body out of control.
“Freedom, honesty, happiness, faith, love, friendship, consideration, trust, gratitude, courage…”
“…Challenge, courtesy, encouragement, humility, innocence, wisdom, justice, mercy, victory…”
Small chunks of light flowed out and were absorbed into Lloyd.
Countless emotions flew up like fireflies and poured down towards him in a galaxy. The endless waterfall of emotions was forming a universe.
Veronica waved her hand through the air, trying to catch any ball of light.
But she soon collapsed as her body fell, realizing that she had no hands. If she hadn’t had the devil’s malice, she would have died completely.
“Do you have the will to summon the devil now?”
Lloyd asked softly, dropping the dagger in front of her.
His voice was so low that it scratched the floor.
Veronica wished she had rather died.
At that time, Veronica regrets for the rest of her life that she did not commit suicide.
Aria was about to cross the river of hell.
The boatman, waiting with the boat afloat on the black river, glanced up at Aria and shook his head.
“You cannot cross.”
“Still, you can’t go.”
She can’t go. But Lloyd is across the river.
Aria clenched her fists in nervousness thinking of where and what Lloyd might be doing, then stared at the boatman.
She had no fear of going to hell.
“Do you need a fare? Then, Anything you ask for…”
It was then.
Aria shuddered as she felt a gentle hand wrapped around her waist.
“I can’t believe you said you would pay any price to go to hell. You should be scolded.”
She reflexively squeezed the arm around her waist.
And she couldn’t believe it at all, no, she actually wanted to believe it. But she couldn’t bear to look back.
“Are you the devil to test humans?”
“Well, what do you think?”
I think it is Lloyd.
She tried to speak calmly, but a watery voice came out. And the tears that formed around her eyes were dripping down without a chance to wipe them away.
Aria swooped around.
And the moment her eyes met his, she was sure that this was not a fantasy. That this was not the devil’s trick.
How did he not go to hell. How did he come to rescue her.
‘It doesn’t matter.’
Because Lloyd was alive and well in front of her now.
“Yes, scold me a lot.”
Aria whispered as she closed her eyes.
“So that I can feel that you are here now.”
Then Lloyd grabbed her chin and pulled her by the waist at once.
The devil, rushing to rescue her from her hell, swallowed her breath along with her soft lips.
