As soon as I came to my senses, I breathed heavily. This isn’t a lake, is that a dream?
No it must have been the original story.
The incident did happen in the original story, but it was not detailed.
Originally, the heir to the light was Ancia.
But the black light in the lake attacked Ancia and she died, as Diana inherited the power of light.
But things changed as I came to this world.
Ancia survived, and the stone plate didn’t break either.
Then the power of light will not be passed to Diana, and the power will remain within me.
“Are you alright?”
I woke up to Baekhan’s voice.
This was the secret room in the Phillion Palace.
It seems that I lost consciousness for a while after being attacked by the black light while deciphering from the stone plate.
“I’m sorry, you almost got hurt due to my mistake.”
Like I saw in my dream, the stone plates are shattered.
“Did you break it?”
“There was an evil force in the stone plate, so I broke it. I’m sorry.”
The stone plate tried to attack me. However, when Baekhan blocked it, the stone plate resisted and ended up being shattered due to Baekhan’s power.
“No, it’s okay. You saved me, you also help me recover the writings.”
Although the stone plates are now broken, I remembered what it said.
“I just found out an important fact.”
“What is it?”
“I think I am the heir of light.”
Baekhan burst into laughter when he heard my answer.
“Did you only know that just now?”
“You knew it already?”
“I knew it the first time I saw you, how can I not when the lights shines beautifully on you?”
It’s really me. I am the heir of light in the Bellacian’s household.
“The food you made had the power of light was embedded in it. I can’t eat it because we have different kind if power, so I could not eat the food you made, I’m sorry.”
“No, it’s okay.”
“Thank you for understanding.”
“It’s really amazing how the food I made had the power of light.”
I really have the power of light, I never dreamed that it would turn out like this.
“Your power is strong. It’s all thanks to you that the curse didn’t spread. Your light is preventing the spread of the curse.”
“I helped Blake.”
“There’s a lot of fights going on in his body. The powers are entangled in a war. If you made up your mind, you’ll be able to loosen the tangled thread and lift the curse.”
I am the successor of light, I can lift Blake’s curse and I don’t have to leave his side.
Tears formed as I was overwhelmed with the whole situation.
“Thank you, Baekhan!”
“It’s not something to be grateful for. I’m a bad person who hides it and only told you just now.”
“No, you’re a nice person. I couldn’t do what you wanted, but you told me everything.”
“Thank you for your kind words..
He smiled gently.
At that moment, his body staggered.
“Are you alright, Bakehan?”
“I’m okay. It’s been a while since I’ve used my strength. Let’s go back”
“Yes, let’s go back.”
After we went back to the crown prince’s palace, Baekhan’s condition got worse.
His skin turned even paler and his body temperature dropped.
“I’ll call the physician.”
“No need, I’m just a little tired. I just need a nap and I’ll be better soon.”
“I’m tired. Please go out.”
I had no choice but to go out.
Baekhan still have three days left, but why is there a problem when he used his strength?
I need to meet Eunhan, only Eunhan knew about his power.
Just as I was about to find him, I saw Eunhan coming out of a room.
I hurried down to the first floor.
It was Eunhan who always greeted me happily when he saw me, but today he was reluctant to greet me. Maybe he’s afraid I’ll persuade him to go to Chang again.
“Eunhan, Baekhan is…!”
“I don’t want to talk about him.”
As soon as I said Baekhan’s name, he coldly interrupted me and expressed his rejection. But I couldn’t give up.
“Baekhan is very sick right now! His lips turned even paler and his body temperature has dropped.”
“He used his strength?”
I urgently explained to him what happened before.”
Then, Eunhan’s eyes widened and he ran to Baekhan’s room.
Baekhan was ready to accept his fate.
From the moment the chosen one leaves Chang, their strength will weaken.
In particular, vassals of the white dragon will experience even worse than other dragons.
Only the heavenly dragon and the black dragon could be free of the Chang’s restraint.
Baekhan took a lot of his strength to destroy the magic on the stone plate. He won’t be able to do so tommorow because he’ll be too weak.
In a few days he will collapse completely. He’s going to beg on his knees and ask Eunhan to go back to Chang for the last time. Yet, Baekhan helped Blake and Ancia.
His body was too exhausted, but he was willing to accept death. He closed his eyes just as the door opened.
“Why would you do that!”
He knew that Baekhan’s body had reached it’s limit.
So he treated Baekhan harshly so that he’ll go back to Chang.
Yet, Baekhan used his power. If he used up all of his power, he will lose his life.
He gave up on his life.
Eunhan knew about this and hugged his brother who was dying.
“I must be blessed because of my good deed. I can die in my brother’s arms.”
Baekhan laughed weakly.
“It’s not too late now! Go back to Chang Immediately!”
Eunhan said so but he knew that Baekhan didn’t have the power to go back to Chang himself.
“Why do you do that?”
“Isn’t that what brother wants?”
Baekhan became attached to Ancia and Blake, he sympathized with Blake’s situation and wanted to help. It was what Eunhan wanted.
Because it is his beloved brother’s wish, Baekhan helped them.
“Silly child, why are you doing this for me?”
“You’re all I have left.”
Baekhan finally confessed his true feelings at his last moments.
“I wanted to see you, I missed you. I became the high priest and was surrounded by people, but you’re the only one who truly cares for me. Everything was just an excuse. I’m here to see you because I missed you.”
“If I get back to Chang, I don’t want to leave without you. I hate that place, I’m scared. I don’t want to go back…I don’t want to stay all alone again in that hell. So I helped the crown princess.”
He didn’t have any will to live anymore without his brother, so he offered Ancia a deal.
It wouldn’t have happened if he brought out the words about the stone plate.
He couldn’t guarantee his life the moment he used the dragon’s power outside of Chang.
Baekhan already made up his mind since he came here, he couldn’t stand living anymore. Everyone in Chang only regarded him as a tool.
He is tired of being used and threatened.
If he couldn’t go back to Chang with Eunhan, he was going to die here so he used the dragon’s power.
“Why are you saying that just now?”
Eunhan was not pleased with Baekhan’s answer.
Baekhan knew how he escaped from chang and why his mother died. Yet, he talked about the future of Chang, it was an illogical answer.
Turns out, Eunhan was the reason why Baekhan came here. Baekhan who cared and love him sincerely.
“I was afraid my brother would hate me because I sounded childish. I wanted to show you my mature side, so I acted like I came here out of responsibility. There are many good people here in Asteric. So please forget about Chang now and be happy.”
Baekhan used his last strength to smile.
Eunhan cried while hugging him as his body turned cold.
Of all the half-brothers, he was the only one who he considered as his sibling.
Baekhan is Eunhan’s family.
Even though Eunhan’s mother has passed away, he still have Baekhan.
This child had always supported him on the sides.
However, Eunhan forgot the fact and only realized it just now.
