I Grabbed the Tyrant’s Heart - Chapter 144
As my suspicious glance continued, the Chancellor offered an explanation once more.
“I truly don’t know where His Majesty is. I can only speculate.”
“A sage is not omnipotent, you see.”
I had heard enough of the Chancellor’s story about this fact.
“I’ll be here, so please summon me if you need anything.”
Through the relentless rain and thunder, I made my way into Hill Palace. The already desolate palace seemed even more desolate with no one in sight.
My clothes were drenched, and my dress clung to my legs, but I headed straight for the bedroom without stopping. Opening the door, I stepped inside.
I raised my hand to the empty space next to the bed.
When we were young, he used to find me, who was hidden deep.
I was always curious how he found me. Now that the situation has arisen, I think I know.
Where are you?
“Tess, even though you’ve grown up, you’re still mischievous.”
If I find him, this won’t end in a scolding this time.
As I did before, I started infusing magic into the seemingly empty wall. There was no change in the wall that should have crumbled, and I poured more magic.
After pouring a considerable amount, the wall finally opened, and I cautiously stepped into the still pitch-black place.
Surely, if it was a confined space, the sound would have echoed, but my shouts disappeared into thin air.
I shouted even louder, but the result was the same. I tried to conjure light with magic, but the magic vanished without a trace. My body was still brimming with magic.
In the end, all I could do was walk and walk.
The path that had felt short with Tess now seemed unbearably long. It was as if all my senses, even my hearing, had been stifled. If it hadn’t been for my well-honed sense of balance from swordsmanship training, I would have stumbled repeatedly.
After walking for a while, a pungent scent of blood began to permeate the empty space, and I ran toward it. Despite the disorienting sensation of weightlessness, I managed to keep my balance and continued.
It seemed like the room where the late Emperor’s body from before had appeared quickly, but it took a while to reach it this time.
I saw a figure lying in front of a strange wall emanating a bluish light.
I picked up the person who was unable to move, and it was Tess with a pale face
I cautiously scanned his body amidst the thick smell of blood.
“Tess, wake up. Te, ugh!”
Tess, who had his eyes clearly closed, forcefully pushed me away.
I ended up on the floor, and Tess climbed on top of me. Before I could startle at the cold marble floor hitting my back, I looked into the glimmering black pupils in the darkness.
For a moment, I felt relieved that he had opened his eyes, but then I became puzzled by his actions.
Contrary to the stifled groans, his hands moved quickly. Clutching my dress with both hands, he tried to tear it off, and I urgently grabbed his hand.
“Tess, what are you doing? Tessvalun!”
In the end, the front of the dress tore. Before I could even feel the chilly air seeping through my skin, pain enveloped me.
I felt the sting of his teeth biting my chest.
Tess continued to covet me as if he couldn’t hear anything. I tried to push him away by grabbing his shoulders but I was startled by the warmth in my hands.
Tess’s body is warm?
What on earth happened to him?
Despite him greedily biting and sucking my chest, my attention was stolen by the hot cheek pressed against my skin.
I felt something bumping on my hand against his back. It covered Tess’s back, making a tingling sensation.
This was more shocking than his rough writhing.
A sound akin to that of a beast’s cry now echoed in my ears, and the movement of his tongue became increasingly aggressive. With this, his back grew hotter, making it difficult to keep my hand on him.
Even though I couldn’t see anything, I couldn’t help but tightly shut my eyes.
Ever since it was revealed that he was related to the devil, I expected that not all good things would come. Sometimes, I anticipated that the intense energy enveloping him would eventually lead to something significant.
However, him becoming like this was never an option.
Could it be that it’s because I called him by this name that he ended up like this?
Tess, the name of the unfortunate woman who was meant to suffer.
If I had known this would happen to him, I wouldn’t have used that name just because it was inconvenient.
But if it’s not this name, I wouldn’t know what else to call him.
Just as he has never once called me by a nickname, I have always called him by this nickname.
I hugged onto the man who was still roughly lusting after me. Despite the pain from the continuous biting, I continued to stroke his smooth hair.
“Tess, my Tess.”
I caressed the man who was incessantly exploring me and wetted me with saliva. Gradually, the things that had covered his back disappeared. His smooth hair brushed against my chest and clavicle, and the sound of liquid rubbing persisted.
The touch that delved into my dress was somewhat rough, which surprised me, but I didn’t resist.
“Aahh, Tess. Yes, that’s right. It’s okay.”
His fingers entered me. It stung a little at the sudden intrusion, but my hand that caressed Tess didn’t stop.
When it seemed that the bottom was getting wet, Tess withdrew his fingers. Then, mercilessly, he plunged himself in.
Tess’s was too big and violent to just take in. Fortunately, Tess seemed satisfied with just being inside me, so he remained still and started biting my neck again.
Just like a beast.
