Those words completely severed the string of reason that Gary was struggling to hold on to.
“It is you who is nothing!”
He said, gripping the cloak that Sabina was wearing even tighter.
“The power I hold is talent and strength. As proof of that, I will become an imperial knight, and you are now helplessly walking towards your death.”
He looked around proudly and added with a deprecating smile.
“The Count’s daughter is going to the underworld, but no one is seeing her off.”
Count Valois was currently out of town. For he knew that a carriage would come from Valentine.
“And, the Grand Prince himself didn’t even come to greet you.”
Gary taunted Sabina and screamed at the top of his lungs.
“This is proof that you are nothing!”
She doesn’t even have to listen anymore.
Sabina looked up at him indifferently and raised her fist. And she just swung it at him.
She looked down coldly at Gary, who was coughing up his stomach juices.
“That’s good, no one’s watching.”
Of course, it wasn’t that there was no one. An attendant guarding the door was watching them.
But as Sabina’s gaze just passed by, the attendant gently clasped his hands together and lowered his gaze.
“Did you see that?”
Sabina asked to check.
The attendant seemed to be in anguish for a moment, then answered obediently.
“……I can’t open my eyes because I got dust in my eyes.”
The young master would soon be a knight, but the miss would soon be the Grand Duchess, it was easy to weigh who not to offend.
Sabina smiled fully
“Brother came all the way here to see me off, but since the road to the underworld is deserted, let’s go together. I’ll send you.”
Sabina, who cracked her wrist lightly, moved her steps slowly.
A shadow fell over Gary, who was lying on the floor.
Sabina ordered, rubbing her blood-splattered fist roughly over her cloak.
The coachman, who watched the whole process from a distance, approached tremblingly to open the carriage door.
The door opened effortlessly by itself.
She peered into the carriage, her eyes mixed with wonder and bewilderment.
It was because a dark-haired man was shaking his shoulders with his arms outstretched toward the door.
He seemed to have stopped while opening the carriage door, judging by his awkward posture.
“What is this?”
Sabina muttered unknowingly.
There was a reason why she gave such a reaction.
The man in front of her does not have a good first impression no matter how well she looked at it.
“…the smell of alcohol.”
Sabina muttered, furrowing her brows.
He did not appear to have been drinking in the carriage. However, the smell of alcohol wafted from the man’s vicinity, like he had fallen from an alcohol barrel.
Does this mean that there was a drunkard riding in the carriage that was sent from Valentine?
‘Are they trying to test me?’
To see how she will react? Or, is it a new kind of bullying to make her know her place?
It was confusing. However, she soon got the idea.
After stepping on the culprit who had made her sacrifice her whole life, there was nothing rough in her life. It was an impulsive act that reached its limit, but it was very satisfying.
‘I will survive.’
Sabina has already made up her mind.
She couldn’t die because she had unfulfilled dreams.
But there was only one way for her, who would become the Grand Duchess, to live.
‘For the union to be broken off.’
No matter what, she had to escape the Valentine family.
To do that, Sabina had to actively appeal that she was not the person suitable for Valentine.
‘What should I do?’
She was still lost in her thoughts, looking down at the man who was laughing silently with his back down.
What Valentine wanted was definitely an ‘sacrifice’.
In fact, Sabina has lived a life that is nothing short of a sacrifice. But ironically, it was only after she became a real ‘sacrifice’ that she wanted to escape this sacrificial life.
‘Wouldn’t they break off the engagement if I show the opposite attitude to a sacrifice? Rebellious, disobedient, strong desire to live, obnoxious, doing whatever I want, arrogant…….’
She would have to show a completely different look from the way she has been living her life. However, Sabina had a feeling that acting like that would suit her aptitude.
“I didn’t expect you to raise your fist there…”
It was then. The man opened his mouth in a voice that seemed to suppress a laugh.
“Did you see everything?”
Sabina asked, glancing at Gary sprawled on the floor.
But having said that, it was a really stupid question. Well, there’s a window, so he can’t help but look.
“I heard everything.”
But what the man said next was completely unexpected to her.
“You overheard the conversation? How?”
“My ears are a little good.”
Even if the carriage door had been left open, the conversation would not have been heard at all due to the distance.
But to overhear the whole conversation…….
‘No. This is rather good. I acted completely differently from what Valentine wanted.’
What kind of sacrifice threatens to send one’s flesh and blood to the underworld with a fist?
Sabina was satisfied inside. She’ll just have to keep acting like a careless person without holding it in from now on.
“It’s a family affair, so there’s nothing to worry about.”
“You don’t seem to need any help, but I’m willing to help.”
‘Ah, that’s why he was in such an awkward position.’
The man said that when Sabina was insulted by Gary, he was about to open the carriage door.
He seemed to be sitting there laughing like crazy as Sabina suddenly ran wild like an unbridled colt.
“Well, even if it’s your help…”
She looked down at her knuckles, slightly scratched from the violent swing, then she looked back at Gary.
Was that even funny?
This time, the man burst into laughter.
