“The young lady’s neck hurts because I took my anger out on you.”
I recalled the creepy red eyes I had seen just before I fainted.
‘Kill her? Or save her?’, that was what his troubled eyes contemplated.
“Did you hit me?”
I asked just to be sure. There’s no way that was the case, so I said it half-jokingly.
“No. If I had you wouldn’t have been able to open your eyes like so.”
Caesar didn’t seem like he was joking in the slightest.
If he truly hit me with all his heart, I’ll be dead in no time.
My mouth went dry.
“…….Don’t attack me in the future.”
He nodded, signifying that he wouldn’t.
With peace of mind, I nodded after him with peace of mind and added,
“Ah. Also, don’t kill me.”
Caesar did not reply. He slowly opened the book again.
What! Why aren’t you answering?
An ominous feeling engulfed my spine.
In the original, it’s said that he only tells the truth. That’s because he wasn’t interested enough in other people to lie.
‘However, not answering me….’
Frightened, I looked at him with suspicious eyes.
“I wouldn’t kill you, but I had a thought of wanting to. While you were asleep.”
Caesar said without a single smile.
“Ah……….. Then, did I faint because of you?”
I took Caesar’s words lightly.
I, too, very occasionally wanted to kill someone. Most people will experience that at least once. I figured that it was natural.
As long as you don’t put it into action.
“Yes, it’s my fault that you’re not feeling well.”
“I’ve been sick once or twice, so now I’m hardly angry.”
‘Who isn’t allowed to think?’
My throat continued to sting.
As she subconsciously continued to rub her own neck, Caesar reached out and handed her medicine.
“This is the medicine that the doctor left behind for you.”
The bitter smell of medicine went down my throat. The fact it was liquid made it a bit more bearable.
“I tried to push you out the window.”
“Pfft! Cough! Cough!”
Surprised by the sudden and specific murder plot, I coughed violently, spewing out the medicine I was drinking.
Nineina’s weak hand slipped and missed the bowl, but Caesar had caught it.
‘No way! Did I do it again?’
I hurriedly examined Caesar, wondering if I had sprayed what I had in my mouth onto him.
Fortunately, he had safely avoided my outburst and looked fine.
His expressionless face was dignified as if he was no longer suffering.
I was thinking of giving him a round of applause.
It’s funny that just a moment ago he wanted to kill me. I wanted to applaud him for doing well.
“…….I think it’s fine. But it must only be a thought.”
“Are you sure you don’t mind?”
He stared at me, firmly convinced that his thoughts would be all right.
As I looked at his expressionless face, I felt suffocated and my fists kept getting tense.
“You really cannot kill me. Promise me.”
“Why aren’t you answering me?”
I approached him as he hesitated to answer.
As the silence grew longer, doubts grew.
He looked extremely unhappy, but when he saw me being impatient, he nodded his head as if he couldn’t bear to do it.
“Yes, I promise, now calm down. Even the slightest stimulus seems to be poison to you.”
The object he had to protect was a body as fragile as glass, so he looked annoyed to death.
After receiving a definite answer, I graciously overlooked his usual blatant annoyance.
Originally, I was much more tolerant to those who helped me.
“It happens. However, please be more careful next time.”
“Don’t I have to apologize?”
“Are you trying to say sorry?”
“Uh… Are you apologizing to me right now?”
I thought about whether he ever apologized to others in the original story. I couldn’t think of it.
“….I don’t know.”
After quite a while, he replied quietly.
There was a silence so long that I forgot the question for a moment.
“Do you have to answer so carefully every time?”
As expected, he’s a man who wouldn’t even lie for fun.
If he had been someone else, I probably would’ve been angry at them for provoking me so much, but he was different.
Right now, it’s amazing that he’s said that much.
“Then I won’t accept your apology. It isn’t necessary at all.”
‘Is it my turn to apologize?’
I looked into his eyes and wondered when it would be a good time to talk about the mark.
“…Are you reading my countenance?”
“That’s because I have something to apologize for.”
His eyes darkened. I wondered what I should do with this poor thing.
However, as I was looking at his expression, time passed and his eyes became cold.
I can feel the temperature difference, but I don’t know what that means.
Finally, I started my talk with a slight smile.
This body had a pouting and coy look, but when I smiled, I looked as bright as a child.
At that moment, Caesar opened his mouth hastily, as if she felt an uncontrollable urge.
“I’m unsure if I’ve shortened the young lady’s lifespan.”
Her lips, which had been slightly smiling, trembled.
The shock was so great that darkness fell deep in my heart.
“About 15 days, a month at most.”
As soon as he finished speaking, my face contorted relentlessly.
My glares to Caesar will never be warm.
“Apologize. Right now.”
His lips twitched meaninglessly.
After a few seconds, he said thoroughly.
It was an awkward tone in the face of difficulties.
I knew from his face that his apology was sincere, but my expression didn’t falter.
He frowned a little.
It was more of a difficulty than a nuisance. I widened my eyes brightly.
“Is there anything you want from me?”
“Yes, please actively cooperate with me to extend my life. Until I get back to my original state.”
Tears welled up in my eyes when I recalled the 15 days of nightmares I had when I first became Nineina.
They were precious things that I attained!
He took away a lot in a single mistake.
If your most precious treasure was taken away, albeit only a quarter, it’ll be very upsetting.
Reality was like that for me.
‘What did I choose to abandon?’
In order to live on, I erased my longing and sorrow for my hometown.
I never brought it up because I’ll just end up getting homesick later.
It was the fire that kept it that way.
The tears in her feverish eyes were about to burst at any moment, but she had to swallow them to lift her eyelids.
“Return it back. As to how it was.”
I muttered, gritting my teeth tightly.
He had a troubled face, but he didn’t seem to regret what he said.
“That’s beyond what I can do….”
He couldn’t finish his sentence. At my fierce stare, he took a step back.
“……….I’ll bring you some medicines to heal your body.”
“I’ll help you with exercise too.”
Can Caesar help me exercise?
I scanned his robust and healthy body with a sharp gaze.
It wasn’t out of self-interest, rather, I had to see if he was qualified to become a teacher.
A well-developed upper body, strong thighs even when covered by pants, and…….
Oh goodness, It ended up being self-interest.
My cheeks turned a little red.
I turned my head around to act oblivious and agreed.
He didn’t seem to notice my oddity.
“Did you forgive me?”
At his words, I opened my eyes piercingly.
“Of course not. We’re holding it off until this is over.”
“…………..You’re so cruel.”
He returned what I once said. Of course, I didn’t even snort.
“You’ve taken away my precious babies that I have raised. How can you be so mean to me after my loss?”
“When did I steal your babies?”
“My lifespan. They’re like my babies because I gave birth to them with a lot of care.”
There’s no way he could beat me who seriously thought so.
I was under his protection and he had to protect me.
He’s both a good intimidator and adviser….
His special talent came to mind and caused me to gulp.
“……I take back what I said.”
He pressed his eyes tightly with his hands. As if he was tired.
Spending more than half of the day lying in bed seemed very difficult for him.
He showed me a face that meant he wanted to get the job done quickly.
“We need to solve the marking problem.”
