Becoming the Villain’s Family - Chapter 240
Carlin knew right away that she was his master.
“I can endure only a few minutes at most.”
“That’s enough time.”
Sabina said, drawing her sword.
“No… you’re not running away?”
He asked back, looking absurd. He thought that so she would run away.
“I’m not going.”
Sabina made her choice.
It was a foolish choice not to run away.
She made such a foolish choice that she gave up her dream, her bright future, and her precious person, so shouldn’t she commit something as tremendous?
“Every choice comes with a responsibility.”
“What? Whose responsibility?”
“Mine, to me.”
Sabina calmly faced the Grand Duke who was bound by the shadow.
She then aimed the sword she was holding and pierced his heart. The sensation of the sharp tip of the sword piercing the skin is vivid.
Sabina almost reflexively let her hand go.
Although she had swung the sword countless times before, this was the first time she had decided to kill someone.
Her first murder.
When Sabina found herself in a situation where she was responsible for someone else’s life, her eyes closed shut.
The pressure was greater than she had imagined.
She swallowed her groan, gritted her teeth, and sunk her sword into him.
‘Even if the Grand Prince uses the magic tower, it is impossible for him to get here in just a few minutes.’
Physically. There is no way he could have created a forced summoning scroll like Carlin did.
Then there was only one ending left for them.
To wait desperately for the Grand Prince to come in helplessness.
‘Or be caught running away and get mercilessly killed.’
The ending for both was death.
Even if she manages to survive alone, what can she do?
If she had made that choice, she would have already crossed the mountain range and fled outside the territory from the start.
‘If not me, who will take the Grand Duke’s life?’
Who would dare? So she made the best choice she could.
The devil’s malice will not be enough devouring all living things here, and it will greedily crave life.
She planned to protect everyone from the Grand Duke.
Sabina was well aware of Tristan’s wishes.
So, she hoped that the Grand Duke, who had suffered the same fate, would feel at ease. She thought this was a human’s duty.
The thick blood flowing down Sabina’s blade soaked her hands in warmth.
She felt like she was going to throw up. But as she tried to ignore it, she finally completely pierced the Grand Duke’s heart.
Bound by the shadow, he still stood stiff like a statue despite shedding blood. Like he wasn’t a living thing from the beginning.
Those who survived were shocked and couldn’t believe their eyes. They were so shocked that they couldn’t even speak properly.
“The, the Grand Duke de, dea…!”
Even Carlin, who was the least shocked among them, could not speak.
‘What did I just see?’
The Grand Duke dead?
Is there anyone in this world who is qualified to dispose of him?
The Valentine that makes even the Emperor dare not treat them carelessly and make the Emperor look around!
The proof was that the Emperor’s dogs, no, the wizards were struggling as far as Valentine.
Sabina said calmly.
“Kill him or I die. You know that.”
“But if you kill the Grand Duke, you will die!”
“If one of us dies, it is better for the majority to live.”
The genius shaman Carlin opened his mouth blankly like an idiot.
He doesn’t know who that person is, and he has no idea what the sudden situation is.
But he thought it would be refreshing to beat Yannick, who had suddenly summoned him to this place, to death.
His heart was pounding for a moment.
‘Damn, that’s cool…….’
What on earth does this person do?
Is she a knight?
Just by looking at her appearance, he thought she was a noble girl raised in comfort…….
That moment, he really wanted to ask her name. At one point, Carlin opened his eyes.
He noticed that the Grand Duke’s fingertips, which had not even moved slightly, were trembling.
“Stand back now!”
His expression firmed and he shouted urgently.
But the Grand Duke was faster. He tightly grasped the blade embedded in his body with his hand.
Sabina could only stare blankly at the strange sight of the Grand Duke pulling out the sword stuck in his body.
“Is he… alive?”
How? She had clearly pierced his heart.
The sensations from that time still remained vivid in her hands. She stabbed his heart with a blade, no human could ever survive it…….
…… At that moment’s thought.
A huge roar exploded right in front of them.
Her hearing went buzzing in an instant, and all she could hear was a ringing sound in her ears. At the same time, Sabina was caught in the intense shock.
When she came to, she had already rolled over and was lying on the ground in a mess.
Sabina managed to drag her hand, which was hard to move at all, and touched her ear.
It was wet with blood.
Looking at the red blood that had started to pool on the floor, she couldn’t guess which part of her body it came from.
Her whole body was just hot. She felt like she was burning up.
It’s hard to breathe.
It seems like there’s something wrong with her bone as well…….
‘I think I’m going to faint.’
She forced her closing eyes to open. Sabina lifted her head, still holding her ringing ears.
The surviving knights were holding their swords, and the wizards who did not collapse were raising their staffs.
Everyone was blocking her way.
“The Grand Duke is mortally wounded. Hang in there somehow!”
Contrary to their strong shouts, their faces were all pale and they seemed to have lost their will to fight.
But was it because Sabina took the initiative and threw herself into it? Even though they knew their chances of winning were slim, they confronted the Grand Duke too.
‘Are they stupid?’
She had managed to save them by throwing herself, so why did they insist on going into the fire pit?
