The Monster Duke Mistook Me for His Wife - Chapter 14
“Come on, Ria. It’s better for him to fight alone.”
Nathan, who indirectly said that being around would not help anything, pushed Ria’s back.
“… There’s no dinner if you get hurt.”
“That can’t be. The rabbit’s legs are all mine.”
“Don’t get hurt if you know it.”
“I will solve it neatly and come back.”
“If you are late. I will give everything to Nathan.”
Ria turned her back after she looked at Dillian with half worried, half annoyed eyes.
Behind her back, the sound of arrows constantly was heard, and then something bursting can be heard.
At the same time a short scream was heard. It was the sound of death.
“Ria, don’t look back.”
Slam, the door closed.
After confirming that Ria had safely entered the house, Dillian erased the smile on his face.
The smile that disappeared like a mirage which sank coldly was his real face.
Dillian looked down with cold eyes.
Trying to rush to him without him knowing, the assassin’s body, who was short of breath, was stretched out in a mess.
“Now, it’s sixteen.”
What Dillian took from the broken body was a sword.
Dillian, who stole the sword easily, has a familiar feeling, then pulls up the corner of his mouth.
The fishy smile was the smile of the villain that Ria commonly knew.
“Hurry up. I can’t be late for dinner.”
He didn’t know anything else, but he couldn’t allow it to be taken away by Nathan.
“If you don’t come, I will come.”
The eyes that sank low, shone.
Ria circled around the living room in nervousness.
“What should I do? Will it be okay?”
“He’s doing good, so don’t worry.”
Nathan reassured Ria by informing her of the situation, but she could hardly calm down.
“How can they break through the barrier? That never happened before.”
The monster for sure, even the thieves, all can be blocked…
“There’s nothing they can’t do if they rush in with determination. Especially because they are highly trained.”
So, those intruders were fully prepared. In order to remove Dillian without fail.
“Then, that means it’s more dangerous.”
Ria chewed her lips.
This is why affection is scary. If it were in the past, I wouldn’t have cared.
Ria stuck to the window and didn’t move even when Nathan told her to step down.
Even if it’s battle one versus numerous, Dillian was not pushed back at all. Rather, the assassins lost their lives to him.
However, the problem was the assassins did not retreat.
Even though they were inferior, they rushed in without stopping.
Like a person who’s written on something.
As they rushed like moths, in the end, an arrow hit Dillian’s arm.
Ria screamed as she looked at the appearance of an arrow that got drawn out ignorantly.
“I should go.”
“He got hurt, I can’t stay still!”
“Ria! At least bring a weapon!”
Ria, who was running toward the door at Nathan’s dissuasion, turned and rushed to the kitchen.
‘As Nathan said, I have to bring at least one weapon.’
Whether it’s a kitchen knife, a frying fan, or a crowbar, anything is fine.
A bit, even really a bit, I wanted to be any help to Dillian.
It was a coincidence that Ria, who was heading to the kitchen, discovered it.
Dillian’s room, a flower that could be seen through a gap of the half-open door.
‘The white blossom flower is…’
In the state that she saw for the first time, it was dead as it was blackened and dry.
That means Dillian…
The window behind Ria, broken. The broken glass touched her cheek.
An assassin crawling through the window, then rolled on the floor.
“Ria. Come behind me.”
Nathan, who flew quickly, blocked Ria’s front.
If the assassin touched Ria, it was going to attack him immediately.
Ria also looked at him with a kitchen knife in her hand.
But the condition was strange.
The assassin, who she thought would attack her right away, repeated the same thing like a panic.
“Monster, that is Monster…”
He feels a horror-like thing, not even in the state that would attack Ria.
Like, a person who saw a ghost, the state as if his soul had gone out.
“The situation is not good.”
Nathan swallowed its saliva. Its eyes turned out of the door.
“It’s the exceptional case.”
An evil energy weighted down the whole body.
It was a sensation that she knew very well and didn’t want to experience again.
A creepy scream was heard outside the door.
The man who screamed, pushed his butt and ran away.
That man has seen it. The thing that is asleep inside Dillian.
Ria faltered as she saw a long black shadow under the door.
“Lia, it’s coming.”
A spear-like shadow quickly wrapped around the assassin’s ankle.
“No. I hate-!”
The man screamed and twisted his body. But he couldn’t resist the shadow.
After a while, the curse that finished the meal leaves the body. Then what was once a person became dust and disappeared without trace.
“It exploded in the end.”
Nathan clicked its tongue.
The shadow was still hungry, so this time it opened its mouth and came toward Nathan, but it couldn’t reach it.
“How dare you.”
The curse was blocked and broken by Nathan’s screen.
Ria looked around the surrounding area that looked like storms then walked toward the door.
The scream which was heard outside, was no longer heard.
There was only creepy silence.
As if nothing exists.
I groaned at the disastrous sight in front of me.
The intruders who once attacked us failed to leave a piece and became dust.
All they left behind is clothes and weapons.
I looked at the dust flying in the wind and looked at the only being standing.
Dillian. He was the only living thing on the land.
“Is that the cause?”
I turned to Dillian’s arm.
“What’s gotten into it?”
It is clear that the arrow hit earlier went wrong.
The dark blue stain looked like poison at first glance, but it was not poison.
“It’s too normal to be a poison, and it’s not a fatal wound like before, is it possible to suddenly explode?”
“There’s a way for a curse to react sensitively to the health state of the host.”
So, there is someone who even said that Dillian’s curse is a double-edged sword.
It follows him and harasses him all his life, but it always saves him from death.
‘It’s bullshit, in the end, the curse will eat him up.’
I looked at his wriggling cheek.
Dillian’s curse did not reduce its size even though it devoured seventeen lives.
Rather than being shortened, it is growing more in size.
“After eating that much, I think it’s time to stop…”
But Nathan’s eyes narrowed sharply to see if something was wrong.
“First, we need to stop it. If this continues, it’ll swallow this whole area.”
As Nathan said. The curse started to extend beyond the gate.
‘I have to do it . I’m the only one who can stop Dillian now.’
It’s alright. Nathan’s protective screen will protect me.
I ran as hard as I could and grabbed Dillian’s hand.
Dillian, who was looking at the front with emotionless eyes, reacted to my voice.
Our eyes met. Empty eyes with nothing in it gives me chills.
I didn’t think it was Dillian I knew.
“Sir Dillian, it’s over now. It’s over so please stop!”
I waved his arm and pulled it, but Dillian remained silent.
I was wrong. My voice couldn’t reach the Runaway Dillian.
Even if I shout out loud, it won’t reach him.
‘The Runaway that is hardly seen even once, I’ve seen it twice in a month. Am I this unlucky …’
I self-pitied inside and transferred divine power to Dillian.
As soon as the divine power transferred, strength came into Dillian’s hands.
Grab. I groaned at the grip that held my hand with all its might.
It hurt as if the flesh would be torn and the bones would be crushed. I clenched my teeth because I thought a scream would burst out.
“You really, if you rush to kill me later. I’m not going to let you go.”
After all this trouble, killing the enemy at that time, you die then I die.
As much as she transferred a huge amount of divine power, Dillian calmed down quickly.
The curse reduced its size and went down from the cheek, and the wounds all over his body healed.
Finally, the moment the curse hid itself, Dillian collapsed like a doll with a broken string.
Barely holding onto the collapsing Dillian, I breathe in.
His body temperature was burning hot.
“Nathan! Move the chair please!”
I managed to drag the fallen Dillian into the room and lay him on the bed.
I can’t even think of wiping sweat.
Because Dillian’s state was unusual.
As if he is going to be out of breath and his body is hot like a fire.

“Ria. First take off the clothes. Hurry.”
I reached out my hand to his loud throbbing chest.
There is no time to turn off the buttons one by one. I pulled his shirt like tearing it apart.
Seeing Dillian’s chest, I swallowed my breath in surprise.
