‘H-How could this happen!’
Fear rushed on him like a swarm of bees. He was a forthright man who believed he would become the Emperor. Celia, who was said to have poisoned him with alcohol, came to mind.
“Fuck! That bitch! That alcohol has to be something in it!”
He had no idea what she had done to him, but his power couldn’t have suddenly disappeared. Phil thought that Celia had used evil tricks to make his powers disappear.
“We can’t let her go! You must catch her!”
When the servant saw Phil acting hysterically in fear, he quickly summoned the knights. Phil screamed in a shrill tone, not even bothering to wipe the puke from his face.
“She wouldn’t have left my palace yet! Catch her!”
Phil swallowed the words “catch and kill her” that was about to escape his mouth. Because if he kills her, he will never know how she took his powers or how he can take them back.
“Make sure to bring her alive! I have to interrogate her and find out what’s going on! You must not kill her!”
The knights were terrified when they saw the prince, who had gone insane, and shouted. If they couldn’t find the woman who had escaped, they expected to be the ones to die.
“What are you waiting for? Get her right now! Do you want your heads cut off instead?”
After they heard Phil’s scream, the knights dispersed at once. Even in the midst of all of this, the servant appeared concerned about the prince’s appearance with his blood flowing.
He was usually a prince who used his abilities to heal wounds.
The Servant found it strange that Phil didn’t use his powers, but he knew he had something to do with it.
“Your Highness, you must heal your wounds.”
Phil couldn’t relax and stared that the servant held out a towel to wipe his face. The servant crouched his neck with a look of ‘Hik!’
“Where the hell did that bitch run?”
Phil snatched the towel, wiped his face with it, and tossed it on the floor. The blood flowed from his ruptured wound, but the fear of losing his power outweighed the pain.

Celia illuminated the path ahead by removing a mana stone from the wall. It went completely dark when the secret passageway left the Mana Stone area.
She couldn’t find the shining mist like before, so she went through the mana stones on the wall one by one, pulling out any loose ones.
‘I’m not sure if this is okay.’
The egg of the divine beast was in the ring that Celia was wearing.
She paused because she wasn’t sure what the volume of the ring’s spell was, but she couldn’t leave the divine beast’s egg here. It was, however, impossible for her to carry it completely in her arms.
‘If the Emperor sees it, he might kill the Divine Beast again and try to take out its heart and eat it.’
She feared that because the Divine Beast had not yet hatched, the egg would be broken and eaten like an ostrich egg fry.
‘I can’t fight with the Divine Beast’s egg in my hand; it’ll get in the way even if I’m trying to flee……’
As a last resort, she thought of putting the egg in a magical pocket within the ring. She was nervous when she got the ring because she didn’t understand how much she could put on it.
She was afraid the egg would crack because it looked so small inside.
On the other hand, she was concerned that the egg would be thrown away because it did not fit.
Fortunately, the egg did not break or hatch. The egg rattled softly as if the hidden space within the ring’s jewels was larger than Celia had expected.
As a result, she could return the two heart pieces of the divine beast she had taken out for a while.
‘It’s a little bit like keeping the egg of the divine beast…… But it’ll be a big deal even if I lose it.’
She felt sorry for the divine beast’s egg but couldn’t put it elsewhere because it was important. The silk gown or nightgown she was wearing now didn’t even have pockets.
Celia was in the worst possible situation and had moved to another floor to prepare for the worst. She thought it would be better to meet Leonis and the others by finding the exit on the first floor.

Giel ran as fast as he could to the palace. The gatekeepers immediately recognized the prince’s face and opened the door. The jarring sound of horseshoes drew the attention of passers-by.
The horse was on its way to Michael’s residence, the First Imperial Palace, rather than Giel’s, the Third Imperial Palace.
Michael was the most cherished prince by the emperor. Because of that, he was a prince who maintained his position even without the mysterious power that came down to the imperial family.
When the horse arrived at the First Prince’s Palace, he was sweating profusely. Giel ignored the lather and jumped off the horse.
“Your Highness, what are you doing at this hour?”
The servants of the First Imperial Palace dashed forward and grabbed the reins of the horse, greeting and asking him, but Giel ignored them. As his striding footsteps tried to get inside, the servants were perplexed.
It was not the appropriate time for greeting visitors.
“Your Highness, please wait! I will ask His Highness Michael to visit you.”
The servant spoke quickly, but his words were met with Giel’s cold stare.
“Ask for a visit? This isn’t the Imperial Palace!”
He entered the building by pushing the servant, blocking Giel with his shoulder. The shoved servant’s man hastily blocked Giel’s front as he beckoned to the other servant.
“What are you doing? Now get away from me!”
Giel had a strong smell of alcohol. He seemed out of his mind to see his red eyes glistening.
“Your Highness, you seem drunk. After returning to the 3rd Imperial Palace today……”
“Shut up! I need to meet Michael!”
The knights tried to stop Giel, but he was stronger than any ordinary knight could be. Even though they could smell the alcohol, when a soldier came out, he hit them with a single punch.
“Your Highness, you must not do this!”
“Get out of the way!”
Giel would now begin kicking anyone in his way while swinging his hands. The pursuers barged in quickly.
They want to inform Michael about this.
Giel battered the soldiers, but instead of fighting back, they simply retreated. The prince stood in opposition. His hand might land on their neck if they had inflicted any hasty injuries on the prince.
Giel hurled the swollen-faced soldier and strode into the hallway. This was the first time he had entered the Palace of the First Emperor, as he had no acquaintance with Michael.
Michael already existed as the first prince when he was born, and the first Imperial Palace belonged to Michael from the beginning.
Giel assumed Michael’s bedroom would be similar to his because most of the palaces given to the prince had similar structures.
His heart ached thinking about Vivian. Giel could not think rationally because he had already taken the medications that had caused him to lose his temper.
If she doesn’t marry Michael, no! Even if she didn’t, he would kill him and take Vivian. He couldn’t abandon her to the thug who poisoned his Vivian.
Michael was irritated because he had been relaxing in his bedroom, waiting for his plans to succeed. Giel was not inebriated yesterday or today.
But even though Giel was drunk, Giel was cautious of Michael. Michael speculated that he feared Giel would get drunk and reveal Vivian’s secrets.
As evidence, Giel avoided the seat when he saw Michael poisoned her. Whether alcohol impairs someone’s ability to think clearly, he believed that he wouldn’t have any secrets to confide in if he didn’t look at Michael’s face.
When Michael arrived with five or six servants, Giel’s eyes were already red.
Michael was startled by the angry Giel charging at him. He suddenly remembered poisoning Vivian, but Giel had never noticed.
Giel was a dimwitted simpleton; his mother, the 2nd Empress, was a moron.
His escort knights moved as Giel threw out his body and charged at Michael. It wasn’t the same as when the soldiers were blocking the front.
Michael was clever enough to assist the emperor but lacked physical strength. Giel, on the other hand, was able to beat Michael to death with his bare hands.
“Giel! Calm down! Why are you doing this to me?”
Michael was perplexed momentarily, but he raised his voice in embarrassment. But Giel seemed even angry at Michael’s words.
“How dare you do this to Vivian! I’ll kill you!”
