Life as a Tower Maid: Locked up with the Prince - Chapter 238
“You can do it.”
But even as I encouraged him, Albert squeezed my wrist even harder. He shouted desperately.
“Don’t just say that! Help me here, stay beside me. Stay with me. You were the one who saved me. You’ll stay by my side, won’t you?”
It was different from his usual calm demeanor. Albert’s pupils trembled. He was searching for a reason, trying to find out why I was leaving. To prevent it. To ensure I would never go.
“Was I not enough? Then I’ll try harder, okay?”
He tried to find a reason within himself.
“No, you’re not lacking.”
“But why are you trying to leave?”
At that moment, I once again realized that I had to erase his memories.
I wiped away Albert’s tears, which were already flowing freely.
“Don’t cry, Albert.”
“Don’t go. Please…”
But it seemed Albert couldn’t hear my words. He repeated the same plea over and over.
I closed my eyes tightly, yet I couldn’t prevent tears from welling up in my eyes either.
…How could I not cry in this situation?
I had to leave behind Albert, who was crying out for me not to go with all his might.
I held Albert tightly in my arms.

“Albert, we will meet again.”
“I will see you again. We will write contracts together and spend time together… And eventually, we will fall in love.”
Albert couldn’t understand what the woman in front of him was saying.
In his mind, he couldn’t stop questioning why she was leaving.
The answer must be himself.
“…Was I too selfish? Did I hide my emotions too much?”
She always told him to be honest with his feelings, but it wasn’t easy for him.
She said it so many times that she must not like how he acted. That might be why she was leaving now.
He tried to justify himself in a whispering voice.
“It’s because I’ve never done it before.”
He was afraid of giving his heart away because there had never been anyone who had cared for him like this.
He had already given her everything, but he was afraid that he meant nothing to her.
Albert grabbed her arm and clung to her.
The emotions he had never expressed properly surged up like a flood.
As he thought it was the end, he couldn’t hide anything anymore. Regret finally overwhelmed him.
If that was the case, he should have told her everything from the beginning. He should have talked and expressed everything from the start.
Thinking of one mistake brought up memories of many other mistakes.
Maybe if he apologized now, she would reconsider. Maybe she wouldn’t leave.
Albert quickly spoke.
“I’m sorry for being so cold to you before. Please, okay?”
He couldn’t let his savior go like this. His vision was blurred by tears.
But he couldn’t close his eyes. He didn’t know when she would disappear in front of him.
She chewed her lip and closed her eyes. There were still traces of tears on her face.
“I’ll leave only happy memories. My name…”
“My name is Jung-in.”
With those words, Jung-in cast the Forget spell on Albert.
Albert felt his memories becoming muddled. Jung-in’s presence was gradually fading away.
‘…How could you tell me that now?’
He could tell that she had cast a spell on him.
He hadn’t even known her name for long, but his mind was trying to erase everything.
…The person who had become his everything.
No. No! Don’t forget!
Albert tried desperately to remember Jung-in. But it was in vain.
The difference in magical power between the young Albert and Jung-in, a contractor of an adult dragon, was beyond imagination.
Albert felt it keenly. His mind was spinning again.
If he had to forget, then…
He could cast an allusion spell to help him remember again.
Albert whispered to himself.
“If I meet you again…”
It was a promise to himself.
Albert looked at Jung-in, who wiped away his tears, and clenched his fist.
“I’ll stay close to you right away.”
“I’ll express myself right away.”
The spell that Albert cast on himself was almost like a bout of brainwashing.
If he were to meet this woman again, he would never make the same mistake again.
His entire being would recognize this woman.
Her way of speaking and her gentle voice. The way she treated him. If he couldn’t remember her, he would remember everything he loved about her.
And in the end, he would fall in love all over again.
Even if no one else understood, he would know the love he felt.
‘I’ll welcome you with kind words just like you did for me. I’ll express all my emotions, and next time, I will never let you go.’
Even if all these memories disappeared, the promise would remain as an implication.
Albert Grey would become a remarkable person, more than anyone else, and he would wait for her.
Just to meet again someday.
No matter how she would look, no matter where it would happen.
As miraculously as he met Jung-in, he would love her miraculously as well.
