Be Fascinated - Chapter 10
Translator and Editor: Effe and Yonnee
Claude, who put Philia to sleep, was pensive for a long time.
He was engrossed in thinking about how to torture Logan alive in the dungeon. Around the time the moon began to rise, and a servant rushed in.
“Your, Your Highness!”
Upon hearing the servant’s report, Claude frowned.
“That is… As soon as Miss Philia became a saint, they must have received a huge reward from the temple.”
“It is said that all the money was wasted in just 7 years. When the money ran out, the servants conspired against the family…”
The ending was obvious. Claude nodded his head. If this attendant was to say that it was ‘huge’, he would most likely have received a great reward. It was understandable that they used it all up in seven years.
“Do they have any messages for their daughter?”
“That is… there were a few letters they sent.”
Claude read the letters the servant had given him. The corners of his lips curved up. The contents of the letters were simple. All while asking for money to be sent from Philia, it was filled with resentment towards their ungrateful daughter who never responded to their correspondences.
“It’s not much different.”
Claude remembered his parents. Those people who ruthlessly celebrated his successes, but demeaning his younger brother as a failure.
“It looks like the letter was cut from the temple.”
“I think so too. Because the temple would not have wanted the saint to be connected to their parents.”
“Looks like they didn’t miss their daughter very much either.”
“You saw through it right away. In fact, you can tell just by looking at the fact that they sold their daughter to the temple for compensation. They missed her for half a year, but as soon as they got their reward, they moved on and had another child.”
There was nothing left from the beautiful familial love that Philia missed. At that time, when it is revealed that their daughter is a saint of an oracle, they found out that they will be separated. Why would their parents sacrifice their daughter to the temple?
“What is Your Highness going to do? Are you going to talk to her?”
This servant was the best at reading his thoughts. He was asking if he dared to report in front of Philia one more time.
“No, let’s hide the obituary for a while.”
The servant gave a bewildered expression. Claude stroked his chin.
In fact, he had one plan. To have her hear the report that her family no longer wants her with her own ears, leaving her with nowhere to go.
Even if her family missed her, he would try to hide this and just say they didn’t want her back. But without the need for manipulation, her parents only wanted money, and they were dead.
“In this situation, she doesn’t need to know that her parents are dead.”
Rather, Claude even thought of concealing this fact. He couldn’t remove the afterimage of her crying earlier from his mind. The figure of her crying sadly that she lost her place. He thought he would be thrilled by the wave of deep emotions, but he wasn’t at all.
It left only bitter feelings.
He didn’t want to let her know that her parents were dead, even though her parents didn’t miss her very much.
At the same time, the door creaked open. Claude and the servant looked at the door at the same time. Philia with puffy eyes was standing there.
“No… Now, so…”
“So you mean… My parents are dead?”
Claude blamed himself for not being able to properly sense the steps approaching the door, thinking they were a maid’s footsteps.
“Really, I have no place to go now….”
Her body, as she crouched down in tears, fell obliquely. Claude quickly grabbed her before she fell.
“Doctor, call the doctor!”
At Claude’s urgent voice, the servant hesitated and ran. Philia’s face was pale.
Philia opened her eyes. The dim light of dawn entered the room. She couldn’t tell if it was early evening or early morning. Actually, it didn’t really matter.
Is it a dream or a lie?
Philia struggled to ask herself. However, tears welled up in her eyes. It could be a lie. She got up crying and went to visit Claude, but she heard them say something.
‘Let’s hide the obituary for a while.’
‘In this situation, she doesn’t need to know that her parents are dead.’
He didn’t say the subject, but it was very clear what he was talking about. Hearing the words, she realized what it felt like to collapse under her feet.
‘How am I supposed to live now…?’
She thought she could somehow survive if she returned home. But her parents were also dead. No one needed her—she had nowhere to go.
Being confined to the temple, she had no knowledge of the world. Of course this also meant that she had no money. Because nobody cared about the ‘money’ part when they kicked her out.
From now on, how should I live?
Philia thought blankly.
Would it be better to die? She couldn’t even breathe. What can she do now? She couldn’t hold her breath and live in the world.
Then Claude opened the door and came in. He stood on her bedside, and found her quietly blinking open her eyes.
“Are you awake?”
“I am glad that you have no injuries.”
Philia nodded her head and got her body up. Claude supported her staggering body. Her head was dizzy.
“Philia, it’s okay.”
Claude’s voice sounded quite friendly. She raised her head.
“You don’t have to worry about anything.”
“I will take care of you.”
He sat across the bed and stroked Philia’s hair. Philia fell into Claude’s arms. A question naturally popped into her mind.
Philia wanted to ask this, but she didn’t have the courage to ask. She didn’t really care what the answer was. Even if he had “loved” Philia, it would not reach her heart, it would be heard as something said for the sake of it.
Philia lifted her head and looked up at Claude. The distance between them, who were already close, grew closer. Philia fiddled with his thigh. It wasn’t exactly his thighs where she touched, but somewhere else.
“I can’t really refuse if you do this…”
Claude said with a dazed expression on his face. His auburn eyes were tinged with anger and lust.
“I am not a gentleman who will refuse your temptations.”
At the sound of the soft warning, Philia put her knees up and she climbed onto his body. As Claude laid his body down, it was as if he was being attacked. No, she actually was.
“You don’t like it?”
Her eyes were wet with tears as if they were hanging sadly.
“It’s not that.”
As Claude answered, he felt the soft touch of her lips. Philia kissed him and took off Claude’s clothes. A large hand went into her skirt, stroking her thigh, pulling her underwear off. His fiery fingers dug into her.
There was no soft foreplay like licking her entrance. All he did was just prepare. As he moved his fingers slowly back and forth, he heard a squelching sound.
“Do you want it this badly already?”
“Alright. If you want to forget, then I’ll make you forget. That’s why, you’ll have to respond.”
Claude sat up. Then, he pulled her into a sitting position.
At some point from his underdressed pants, a fully erect member slowly invaded her. She was not wet enough and it was heavy. At the tight pain, she stiffened for a while and forgot to breathe. Again, her face turned white.
Claude, remembering the doctor’s words not to overdo it, gave a light chuckle.
She felt a burning pain in her buttocks. Unknowingly, she let out a scream. At the same time, the manhood that had pierced into her to the brim swelled at the same time, and her legs twitched as she moaned in both pain and pleasure.
“Ah, Your Highness…”
“Now why did you seduce me to put my c*ck in you, huh?”
As Claude raised his back, she twisted her body. His strong hand gripped her waist. He looked at her as if he was chewing and swallowing Philia’s terrified eyes. For some reason, Claude was angry. Why?
Claude glared at Philia. Anger engulfed reason. All Philia did when she was up was to seduce him and embrace him. In a way, it could be said that it was a wise survival strategy.
Now that she was all alone, she dedicated her body to Claude, who had it all. It’s literally an act of selling her body, but what can she do? She had no choice.
He was the one who drove her like that, but why was he angry? Claude knew well enough that this might not have been a clever move.
For example, if she just wanted to forget about it through a physical relationship…
Forget about physical relationships, it didn’t matter to him. If he was the person to share this kind of relationship with, he would be happy to become a tool. But he was angry that the person she wanted to forget was that man, Irik.
Claude recalled the high priest, Irik, who had been searching the capital for days. It was impossible that Claude, who was alert to Philia’s feelings, didn’t know. If there was one person who hurt Philia the most, it was none other than him.
Yeah, he hated that she cried because of that man. And he didn’t like this situation where she was clinging to him powerlessly because she lost everything.
Claude looked at Philia. But Philia wasn’t looking at him. It bothered him, and so he raised his hand again.
