I Was the Savior - Chapter 16
The warm wraps around Yuriel. Thanks to it, she got a little conscious.
At the same time, she remembered the blood flowing down the floor before she lost her mind.
Yuriel hastily grabbed Akron’s hand. However, there was no cut in both hands.
“Surely you have injured… there was a lot of blood.”
His expression changed strangely.
“Can’t you remember?”
It is a cautious question. But she couldn’t answer easily.
Everything was so vivid.
Maybe she did something she couldn’t remember.
“I tend to heal my wounds faster than others, so don’t worry.”
He captured her expression and answered in a calm tone.
At those words, Yuriel carefully groped his palm.
Let alone the wounds, there was no stain left.
No matter how strong a human being, he recovered quickly, but it was questionable whether it was possible for the deep wounds to heal without a trace.
“… you woke up in two days.”
Akron carefully said as if turning the subject.
She didn’t feel uncomfortable with his words, and she blinked her eyes as if surprised.
“The medicinal herbs that paralyzed your body are more of a problem, but this did not harm the child…”
The medicinal herb that paralyzes the whole body is a very rare cultivar.
It is usually used to treat patients, but it was like a poisonous thing when used in such a malicious direction.
Fortunately, it did not interfere with life.
“I shouldn’t have left you.”
It is a voice filled with regret.
With such a face, Yuriel was just embarrassed about his reaction.
“… it’s not your fault.”
It was only now that she could see why he had such a painful expression.
However, he was called by the emperor, and Fiona’s request was also approved by Yuriel.
“… really, don’t say that.”
Even while speaking like that, her heart is tingling.
Moreover, he came to save her. Thanks to that, neither she nor the child was harmed.
Fiona’s voice full of malice still seemed to linger in her ears.
If all of Fiona’s words were true, it was Yuriel who had to make a mistake.
‘Even to the child who is in danger because of me.’
“.. I’m glad that the child is safe.”
She said in a trembling voice.
‘I was afraid. I’m afraid Akron will know this.’
She is many times more afraid of the scornful glances that she will receive from him.
A woman who is not born with the blood of a nobleman becomes a grand duchess, and she bears his child. It is a sin that can never be denied.
“Are you not in good shape? Bring Robent right away!”
Akron woke up in bed to call a doctor.
His hem was pulled by Yuriel’s tender hand.
Then, she realized late that she had caught by him.
Akron hugged Yuriel and made her lean on his chest.
She felt completely cherished by him. Her trembling body slowly fades.
“Don’t be anxious.”
His deep voice sounded in her ear.
He noticed her anxiety.
The breathing had calmed down a little bit.
‘If he asks for a reason, then I will not be able to lie.’
However, after a long silence, he did not ask any questions to investigate where her anxiety had been sourced.
“For whatever reason, you are my wife, that never changes.”
Yuriel’s eyes are wide open. Why are you talking like that now? Her unexpected remarks were embarrassing.
But there was no lie in his eyes.
Ah. She was able to recognize the meaning of his words.
‘You already know.’
What does this comfort mean to him?
It is a warm sadness like a spring breeze.
Without thinking more, she hugged his gentle arms.

“At this point, the title of Count Leyten will be destroyed.”
When the public trial was held, in the center were the Count, his wife, and Fiona the sinner kneeling.
The restrained limbs, torn robes, and faces stained with despair were so severe that it was difficult to say that they were once nobles.
The emperor did not hide his wrath in the present case.
The killer who tried to harm the Grand Duchess was Fiona Leyton, who was once her younger sister.
Moreover, the location of the incident took place in the center of the imperial palace, which was proud to be strict, and that point was when the Grand Duke was temporarily absent at the order of the emperor.
As the emperor who usually cherished the grand duke greatly, the emperor decided to delegate all authority of the judgment to Akron.
The Count opened his mouth to protest, but it was the cry of the beast, not the language of man, that came out.
He didn’t have a tongue.
Surprisingly, it was not cut by torture, but his tongue itself had been rotten and disappeared.
His toes and fingertips, like his tongue, were rotting black enough to be inoperable.
This was the same with his wife and Fiona.
They were held in prison and awaiting judgment, and it was suspected that it was an infectious disease, but the only ones who developed the disease were the countess.
‘The curse was real.’
Only the Count and his wife knew why this terrible phenomenon happened to their family.
It wasn’t something like an infectious disease.
A long time ago, the man who left the newborn bab Yuriel said- “If your mouth says that this child is different blood from yours, a curse will be imposed.”
The man left with enough gold to raise the Leyten family, which was almost fell at the time.
It was a very old story.
But when he fought with his wife and mention Yuriel’s birth, Fiona heard of it.
‘I thought it was nonsense.’
It was the first time the Count remembered the man’s remarks in the past, but he had taken it as nonsense.
“But there was an earnest request from the Grand Duchess.”
The light of hope turned into the eyes of the Count, who was looking back on the past.
Here he may be able to heal if he survives.
‘She must have asked to save her family.’
Yuriel, since she was young, she had a weak heart, so she will definitely help, he thought.
‘Even if I’m not your biological father, don’t you want to return the favor to me who has fed and cared for you until now?’
He had to find the one who somehow cursed him.
The Count was already filled with hope and awaiting Akron’s words.
Before long, Akron spoke with a cold face.
“Fiona Leyten is pregnant, the Grand Duchess has decided not to convict the child she gave birth to.”
“… eup…? Ooh eup!!”
‘I must have heard something wrong.’
The count, who thought so, made a stupid expression.
However, even after a few seconds passed, Akron’s expression did not change.
While in the prison, Fiona gave birth to a child.
With very early birth, only the child was able to get out of jail.
It was blood that nobody cares about anyway. However, only that child can escape from the sins of his family.
“Also… originally, it is deserving that all Leyten family members are sent to the west and torn by a monster. However, considering that there was someone who had escaped once, they are to be detained in the underground maze of the temple of the Lord God.”
“Ooh, ooh ooh ooh!”
Those who were once aristocrats struggled desperately.
The Count glared at Akron with his bloody eyes.
But it wasn’t effective for anyone.
Fiona was halfway out of her mind and did nothing.
They were simply dragged into the hands of the executives like cattle.
There is an ancient maze in the basement of the temple.
Evil spirits are sealed there, and when the living enter the maze, they fall into the pain of atrocities.
The terrible illusions that afflicted the sinner, and plunged them into eternal hell.
Once in, you can never come out. It is also impossible to take your own life.
Even if they live and die until the end, even their souls became evil spirits and were trapped and wandered in a maze.
It is the worst prison in the world enough to beg for any wicked man to kill him as he enters there.
They must taste hell while alive.
“I’ll take over.”
Finally, paladins dispatched from the temple took over the sinners.
Akron looked at the spot for a while until they disappeared and turned his gaze.
Yuriel was miraculously safe.
She even regenerates his wounds with a mysterious force.
‘Such power is something that I have never heard.’
