I Grabbed the Tyrant’s Heart - Chapter 114
I finished the work and returned to the room. Euseniel was still sleeping soundly. I lay down next to her and burrowed into her arms.
I could hear her heart beating rhythmically. I put my lips to it and whispered.
“I was afraid you would abandon me.”
The day I forced myself to ask for my birthday present, I was reluctant to let her go. But then I wondered if she was angry and was going to abandon me. Even if she rejected me, I couldn’t stop.
But she accepted me. This was a very comforting fact.
Euseniel did not abandon me.
You know what? I can’t hear the devil’s whispers anymore.
The light sleeper had fallen into a deep sleep.
“Am I the only one who gives you faith?”
I covered my mouth as I thought I would burst into a laugh. It’s time to leave soon.
What will happen if the people of Hardland find her covered in my traces…….
The Duke will try to kill me, but the Duchess will not be able to do anything about it. What to do with the younger sister who does not resemble Euseniel? Shall I go and tell the creature the child believes to be a fairy?
I wanted to give in to the deep-desires rising from inside me, but I shook my head at the sight of Euseniel sleeping with a calm face. I erased the traces I left with a wet towel.
“My Euseniel, when will you come by my side?”
Now I know you’re not leaving me, but it still hurts not being able to tell anyone about us.
I rested her small head on my thigh, but she was still motionless. As I stroked her hair, I heard a faint sound as if sheliked it.
When will I be able to brag to others that you and I are special?
Even though I already have a lot, I still want more. Clearly, being such a greedy person, I was able to make a contract with the devil.
Dawn was breaking.
The brilliant light that illuminated the world from afar did not suit me, so I disappeared.

When I opened my eyes, Tess was not there, but the map he finished was admirable. In particular, when he divided areas into where monsters appeared and areas where they did not, it was more visible.
It seems that he knew the living space of monsters well because he made a contract with the devil.
“Then, the rest of the places…….”
As I was following it point by point, I came across a familiar place name.
The mountain around Alin where the angel and the woodcutter met.
“I didn’t believe in angels before.”
But when there is a devil, surely there’s angels?
“Yes, I came from a different dimension after all.”
I started sorting out as many stories as I could find that were similar to the angel and the woodcutter.
I thought about asking Tess for a moment, but then I stopped. When he finds out what I’m doing, I’m sure he’ll do everything to tell me not to. Or ask to go together.
When one thing was solved, it felt like I hit another wall again.
“Of course, it should be a secret going to another world …… ?”
As if there is a ban on fairies and elves, he won’t tell me easily.
I let out a sigh.

“There is a reason our family likes diamonds.”
Ruby, as usual, brought a magic stone made of diamonds.
“A mirror is the best tool to reflect one’s own image, but diamonds also reflect something, right?”
“Is that so?”
“They say an object that shines like this can never be harmful. Grandmother told me while she was alive.”
“This is an interesting story.”
Ruby’s eyes twinkled.
“So there is a mirror made of diamonds in the Daidi mansion. A full-length mirror.”
A full-length mirror made of diamonds, as expected of this interesting family.
“It was made in my grandmother’s time, and when the light shines on it, it goes very far. Grandmother said that the more clearly the mirror reflects herself, the better.”
“She would often look in the mirror and tell interesting stories. She said that if it could reflect yourself in this mirror, you would be able to go to the fairy world without having to move. And she told me how fun the fairy world is.”
I realized why I had to go to a dimension where there were people similar to me so that I could go to the dimension I wanted. Beings similar to me are a kind of mirror.
I can go to my world, which I cannot go to by myself, by being reflected in them. The very existence of myself is a prerequisite for going to another world.
There are many angles reflected in the mirror, so I will need to adjust it to get where I want it to be. Finding out the condition is a new worry, but it feels like escaping the mystery.
In an instant, a shiver ran through my body.
“Thank you, Ruby.”
“For telling me an interesting story.”
Ruby, not knowing what I meant, just laughed.
After she left, I collected old stories about the mirror.
My greatest achievement was finding out about the <the Mirror and the Stepmother> story, in which the stepmother in the story fled to another world through her mirror when the stepdaughter, whom she had bullied, came to kill her.
I took out <Angel and the Woodcutter>, which now has clear signs of use.
Heaven and Earth are completely different dimensions. Thus, the angel must have crossed the fairy world and came to earth. And she must have met the woodcutter.
The woodcutter ascended to heaven with the angel once. However, after coming to the human world for a while, he tried to ascend to heaven alone, but failed.
It is clear that he first got to heaven with the angel’s help.
The woodcutter must have had nothing of the similar nature as the fairy. If he was a pure-blooded human, the fairy world itself would have rejected him. Because he is not something that can be reflected in the first place. That’s why the woodcutter couldn’t go to heaven alone.
I even considered going with Tess, for a small moment. I thought it was also impossible. He is related to the devil, who is the opposite of the fairy, one of the children of light.
All I had to do was check for myself.
Coincidentally, I applied for a leave of absence at the Concium because the semester was over.
“Why are you taking a leave of absence without discussing it with your advisor?”
Weathering, who was belatedly notified of my leave of absence, crossed his arms and put on a serious look, but I was excited that I was at a loss towards him.
“It will be hard to see me for a while.”
