I Sacrificed My Life, But He Was A Tyrant - Chapter 39
‘Throw it away? What kind of nonsense is that!’
I looked at him in disbelief.
By any chance, did you get hit on the head or something?
“Why? Do you think I’m crazy?”
I only looked at him silently.
‘Maybe you got hit by the branch earlier?’
Or maybe you got hurt after falling into a thorny path?
Did the monster injure you badly?
Was there poison in the fruit that you picked up when you were hungry?
“….I can tell what you’re thinking. I’m not hurt or crazy, so get rid of those useless thoughts.”
I looked away instantly.
I’m glad he was fine, but I couldn’t stop worrying.
We were hurt and bruised everywhere after a rough journey, so it’d be natural if we lose our minds in this kind of situation.
“I know your purpose for coming here. That’s why you followed me all the way here, right? I can see that you have a strong occupational disease.”
“What do you mean by that?”
“I’ll tell you later, so just answer me. Didn’t I ask you who you were going to give it to? Or are you really going to throw it away.
“Shouldn’t the one who finds it take it instead?”
“I don’t need it.”
But you told me to sell it if I don’t need it!
“And it doesn’t bloom long. It’s either leave it behind or throw it away.”
“But I don’t have anyone to give it to.”
“That’s a lie. Don’t try to fool my eyes.”
I was speechless for a moment.
No. Get a hold of yourself.
After making up my mind, I refused once again.
“I really don’t have anyone to give it to.”
“But your expression said otherwise.”
I bit my lip. Hurry up and refuse!
“It’s a legendary medicine that heals people with any kind of disease. Think again. Do you really don’t have anyone to give it to?”
What a strange man.
He suddenly came to my rescue, gave me food and even protected me. Even though he found a thousand years old flower, he made me worry by saying that he would throw it away after going all the way here to find it. He even managed to gauge my mind perfectly.
“I’m the only one here. What are you afraid of?”
He was right. I was scared.
Until it became a habit to keep my mouth shut due to fear of revealing my heart.
I shouldn’t say anything or even think about it. I’m not allowed to have this kind of feeling.
I cut all ties with my family now.
“I’ll ask you one last question. If you don’t want it, I’ll pull it out and throw it to the cliff.”
“Who do you want to give it to?”
Tears began to fall down. I sobbed, feeling the lump in my throat.
He was right.
When he asked if there was anyone I wanted to give it to, someone came to my mind.
Still, I loathed myself for having that thought. I was so sick and tired.
Tears rolled over my distorted face. He only looked at me silently and waited patiently.
“….My brother, my….!”
I choked up, so I ended up dropping my head.
I meant to say that my younger brother is sick.
I didn’t know what he was suffering from, but my brother smiled even when his face became so red from fever.
I ran away from home, leaving my brother behind. I ran away because I thought I was going to die if I stayed there.
It was more painful now than when I left home because I recalled how my brother smiled at me.
I’d be better if my brother didn’t know me.
But I don’t want him to get sick.
I hope he won’t die and live.
I hope he lives happily without knowing me.
I don’t even ask his name, and I can’t even return to my house now. There’s no way I can know his name.
He was so fragile and weak, but I wanted him to live long.
I let my repressed heart flow out along with bitter tears.
So I went down the cliff and picked up the thousand year old plant.
“Eastern prickly pear melt like water as soon as they are pulled out. Therefore, only experts can keep it. It can only survive with the energy of the ice cliff.”
“This is the second time I’ve pulled it out, thanks to you.”
“So you’ve lived for two thousand years?”
“That’s ridiculous. How can a person live so long?”
He chuckled as if I was saying nonsense.
“It was for a mission. I have committed a heavy crime thanks to that.”
I thought I shouldn’t ask more questions. A heavy silence lingered in the air.
Soon, I saw him tear the cloth to tie his legs, and I finally decided.
“Pardon my late introduction.”
I walked in front of him and bowed my head.
“I will never forget your kindness for saving my life and bringing me all the way here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. How can I repay you?”
How can I repay you? I really have no idea on how to repay him.
“If you don’t know what to do, sit here and tell me about yourself. Don’t just stand there.”
Leaning against the tree, he gestured to the spot next to him.
‘Am I doing you a favor by talking about myself?’
But I should sit next to him for now.
I wonder what I should tell him?
“Why are you alone? You look so young, though.”
He began questioning me. After the sluice gate opened, everything flowed out like water.
He, who seemed to be indifferent on our first meeting, stood up and listened seriously.
When I told him why I came here, he punched the tree behind me.
No matter how thick the tree trunk was, a large hole was drilled in the tree, and soon fell on the ground.
“I’ve seen such terrible people!”
