I Grabbed the Tyrant’s Heart - Chapter 28
I might go crazy if you don’t come to see me.
As soon as I came to the room by teleportation, I heard a series of ‘pop’ sounds. I buried my face in the bed and exhaled.
“Haa, haa, haaaa…….”
When I held something in my hand without realizing it, it makes a ‘bang’ sound. Probably a pillow full of feathers burst. White feathers must be flying in the air.
The voice I uttered was too greedy even in my ears, and I laughed.
“Pfft. Puuhhh. Puhhhh.”
After laughing for a while, I straightened my body and lay down.
“This is why I couldn’t go see you…….”
Looking at you, I couldn’t be sure that I could get my act together. No, it was clear that I would take your hand and lock you in a place where only I could go.
And with those eyes, to look only at me and with those lips, begging me and calling only my name.
“No, right. No. Then Euseniel will be angry.”
Euseniel is patient and indifferent to most things. Maybe that’s why she doesn’t get angry, but when she does get really angry, it’s scary, so I don’t want to make her angry.
I vaguely imagined Euseniel who came right into my arms, it was still fragrant and soft. My body is too hot to bear.
“Euseniel, Euseniel. Ah, my Euseniel…….”
The clothes tightened upon me and I threw them off. I grabbed my standing pillar and closed my eyes.
As if she was in front of me, I stretched out my hand. I wasn’t holding anything, but I remembered the feel of her lips I had just tasted. I grabbed the flesh and shook it like I was going to settle it between her legs.
“Haaa, Euseniel. Euseniel…… !”
As soon as the seeds spurted out, the pillar stood up again and, again and again, and spewed up what was inside. After messing about for a while and getting the sheets dirty, my body felt a little comfortable.
“How nice it would be if you were lying next to me.”
I wish she could just stay by my side like she was when I was sick when I was young.
Every time people pointed at me and sent contempt and disgust in their eyes, I called your name.
Even now, the demonic nature that runs through my veins was whispering.
– Kill them all. Kill it. And take whatever you want. Take her, take her and leave your mark.
Because I can’t destroy the only sanctuary that was allowed to me. So, Euseniel, come see me before I’m broken.
But Euseniel doesn’t come to see me. I gave her a pass to enter the imperial palace, but why isn’t she coming?
“On that subject…….”
But she was meeting Ethyl Bonart and practicing swordsmanship?
If Ethyl hadn’t been the son of Duke Bonart, who sided with me, I would have cut his throat right away.

As always, my family always has breakfast together. When Father is in the palace, I would be left to eat with Mother and Gael, but usually the four of us eat together.
“I heard there was…… a quarrel at the Concium a while ago.”
Was it? I tilted my head and smeared the bread generously with Bake’s jam May sent me. Hmm, the newly hired chef is good, but Bake’s jam is the best.
“A quarrel related to Euel.”
“Yes, Euel. With the youngest daughter of Marquisate Xuen.”
Oh, my God. Was Marquis Xuen putting pressure on Father over it?
Tess condescendingly told me to do whatever I wanted, but things in the world wouldn’t go my way. There is a political sphere of influence according to interests, and it is not that the Emperor can do everything he wants.
“Well, there’s that.”
In fact, rather than a quarrel, it was more reasonable to explain that it was Lili Xuen’s one-sided verbal abuse,
The butler who has been with my family for a long time appeared at the dining room with a troubled look.
“A guest has come. I guided them to come back later, but they insisted-”
The voice coming from outside the dining room seemed familiar.
“I came to see Lady Hardland!”
The frowning Father jumped up from his seat and strode out of the dining room. Soon, though not loud, I heard Father’s angry voice, and I also got up from my seat.
“Euel, you should eat breakfast.”
“But Mother, I think it has something to do with me.”
“Father will take care of it and come back.”
Mother, who seemed to know the owner of the voice, calmly waved to me. So I sat down at my seat, and took the bread with lots of jam on it.
Eventually, the owner of the voice appeared at the entrance to the dining room.
“What kind of commotion is this, Marquis!”
Father, who seemed very angry, eventually stopped the man with his body, but the man was reckless.
“Lady, please. Please!”
“Dad, wait a minute. Keep your calm.”
“… Marquis Xuen?”
… and Nus Xuen?
After repelling Father’s hand and his own son, Marquis Xuen staggered towards me. Then, he knelt down beside me.
The next words that came out of his mouth were rather unexpected.
“Please, Lady. Please save my daughter.”
Is something wrong with Aurin? Then why was he asking me? Should I go to Xuen now? When I stare at him with an incomprehensible look, the other person continues to speak.
“Lili, my daughter.”
“If you don’t leave immediately, I’ll drag you out, Marquis. How shameless!”
Father shouted at the Marquis with a very angry face, but the Marquis showed no signs of getting up. I stared at the jam-covered bread I hadn’t eaten yet.
Ah, why can’t I eat this delicious bread?
Feeling her gaze, I looked ahead and saw Ganiel smearing jam on her mouth. I’m envious.
“Is anyone there? Get rid of this uninvited guest immediately!”
“Your Excellency Duke!”
The Marquis’ voice, who was forced to stand up, was close to a scream. Above all, the word ‘Your Excellency’ that came out of his mouth was shocking.
The Marquis didn’t say it openly, but he had a similar attitude toward our family like Lili Xuen. He must have never regarded Father as something like a duke.
Even since I was little.
“Go ahead, Marquis.”
“The deadline, the deadline is running out. It’s tomorrow!”
The Marquis’ mustache, which had been around for 14 years, trembled miserably.
“What do you mean?”
Apparently, he said he would cut Lili Xuen’s head and hang it on the gate. The Emperor.
The Emperor decided to do so, but there is one reason Marquis Xuen is doing this here. I wanted to run away right away, but I held back.
The other person is Marquis Xuen.
“I don’t know why you came to me like this.”
“If you want to ask a favor, do it properly.”
Don’t be as stubborn as your daughter.
“Father, let’s go back. It’s rude to come here without making an appointment. I’ll see you again in the afternoon, Duke.”
“It’s, it’s your younger sister, so why are you so calm!”
Nus Xuen slowly took his father out. Before leaving the dining room, he made eye contact with me and disappeared after bowing.
“Ciel, I’m sorry for the fuss in the morning. Euel and Gael, let’s eat again.”
“What about Lili Xuen?”
“Yes, that’s what I was going to ask.”
My father, who was seated, had a kind smile, but there was little concern on his face.
“Xuen’s youngest is imprisoned for disrespecting you.”
“Wasn’t she released?”
I took a bite of Bake’s jam-soaked bread and put it down in surprise.
At that time, Tess said to Lili Xuen, ‘Did you dare to contradict the Emperor’s words?’, but in fact, Lili Xuen’s fault was something that could be overlooked at the Emperor’s discretion.
I thought he just gave her a warning like, ‘You bastard, be careful next time?’.
“They said that tomorrow they would cut the child’s head and hang it in front of the palace gate. The sin is too great.”
I can understand why Father’s complexion is not good. That’s tyranny.
“Everyone… did they not object? Or say something?”
“What had happened for 14 years, it’s completely His Majesty’s personal system.”
Come to think of it, Aurin once said that ‘His Majesty is purging’. How much and how has the game changed?
