I Thought You Were A Time-Limited Husband - Chapter 10.2
Chapter 10 part 2
“Yeah, maybe you would have, but it has already happened. I already drank the poison you made, and you became Madam Quillian’s servant. This is an undeniable fact.”
The sword, which had moved away for a while, pierced Helkin’s neck again. Helkin’s skin was cut, and red blood ran down the sword.
“Keuk, p-please s-spare my life. I will give my allegiance to Your Excellency if you spare my life.”
“I don’t need the loyalty of a b*st*rd like you.”
“Usefulness! You will have many uses of me. Although I am a lowly b*st*rd, I am very knowledgeable about all the medicinal herbs in the world! And won’t you need me later when you reveal that Madam Quillian poisoned you?”
“Hmm….” Kaillus sighed and looked down at Helkin. His black eyes seemed to scan Helkin’s inside.
Kaillus Diorat – the youngest Duke and knight who swept the battlefield splendidly.
Helkin, who came back from the afterlife, had heard many stories about Kaillus’ extraordinariness. It was said that the sight of him cutting off an enemy’s neck was like a beast. Helkin understood those words he had heard hundreds of times a day, because he felt like a prey in front of a beast at this moment. He wasn’t so afraid of Madam Quillian’ nor Alice’s threats.
Helkin couldn’t even think of the threat he had received from other people when his death was imminent.
“I will do anything you ask me to do if you let me live, Your Excellency.” Helkin clasped his hands together and said earnestly.
Kaillus, who looked at Helkin with an expressionless face, took the sword from Helkin’s neck.
“I’ll keep you alive for now.” Kaillus handed the sword to the butler.
Actually, he had no intention of killing Helkin from the beginning. It was because there were too many of Madam Quillian’s men inside the Duke’s house to kill him now. He had to be careful because she would be suspicious of him.
Of course, that is not to say that Helkin was saved at all. Having delayed Helkin’s death a little bit, Kaillus planned to decapitate all of Madam Quillian when he was done with everything.
But he said that he was knowledgeable about poisons and medicinal herbs….
Kaillus’ black eyes lit up, thinking that maybe he could be of any use. Of course, if he’s really good at poisons and herbs as he said. He’ll have to find out whether it’s a lie or not.
Kaillus sat down on the wide sofa, organizing his thoughts about Helkin. He leaned back on the soft sofa and looked down at Helkin with a sharp gaze, relieved that he had survived.
“I’ll see if you’re really useless or not.”
“Y-yes, Your Excellency.”
Helkin shook his head with his bleeding neck. Then he slowly raised his gaze and looked at Kaillus.
It was impossible for Kaillus to regain his consciousness, but right now, he was moving in front of Helkin – with his eyes wide open.
How on earth did you wake up?
Kaillus’ body was clearly poisoned when he first came to the uke’s house to assume that he hadn’t been poisoned from the very beginning, because all his organs were hardening. He had a clear memory of that time. It was the day he was so surprised that the person who drank the poison he made was none other than Kaillus Diorat. And every six months that he visited him, Kallus’ condition was slowly but clearly deteriorating.
This was a miracle that would not have been possible unless God came down and saved him – because divine power didn’t work on him either.
At that moment, as he shook his head in the difficult situation, Kaillus’ voice rang out.
At that moment he was racking his brains about this difficult situation. Kaillus’ voice rang, “I woke up last night. And last night, it was the Duch… ess that gave me the medicine you made.” Kaillus continued talking, pointing his chin towards the crystal vial lying next to Helkin. “You said before that it was a nutritional supplement, but was it really a nutritional supplement?”
While he was lying down, all he heard was that it was a nutritional supplement, but he couldn’t shake his suspicions that there was something special between him taking the supplement and him waking up.
Unfortunately, Helkin nodded.
“Yes, this is indeed a nutritional supplement. There is no… special ingredient or something like that. Little Madam warned me that she wouldn’t let me go if I did something stupid….”
“Little Madam….” Kaillus murmured slowly.
Come to think of it, what Alice said was strange.
[‘I don’t know if this is really a nutritional supplement or poison. You may have been making poison then call it a nutritional supplement, right?’]
Her words sounded like someone who was trying not to poison him. She even had Helkin check it for her.
Madam Quillian must have told that she had to poison him, and that poison was surely something that Helkin made.
“Was it the Duch… ess commanded you to change the poison Madam Quillian gave you into a nutritional supplement?”
The struggling Helkin stopped and answered him, “… Yes. Little Madam took advantage of my weakness and ordered me to change the poison she was supposed to give to the Duke to something else.”
She disobeyed Madam Quillian’s order. Kaillus doesn’t understand at all.

“Did the Duchess order you anything other than that?”
“No, nothing. She just told me not to make poison, and don’t talk nonsense to the Old Madam… that was all.”
Alice… What are you trying to do?
