Chapter 68 – Tears of light (6)
Richard closed the door of darkness, fulfilling his duty as the emperor.
He became a true emperor of the Asteric Empire.
There was no one who dared to look down on him.
He took the heir of the light as his wife and gave birth to a successor who looked just like him.
He put down some of the pressure that weighed his shoulders.
Everything was going according to his plan.
Everything is perfect.
Richard returned back to the palace with dignified steps.
However, they didn’t hold any grand welcoming ceremony.
Even after two months, the emperor of the empire was back, but there was no celebration in sight!
Richard headed to the empress in anger.
At that moment, Diana’s scream was heard.
“Ah! Aah! No! No! No way! George…my George!”
What happened to him?
Richard rushed into the empress’ bedroom.
Diana was crying with George in her arms. Richard stiffened at the sight. Blake sentences covered George’s little body.
It is a curse of the goddess.
Richard and Diana’s son George become the heir to the curse.
I woke up with goosebumps all over my body. I had a dream.
No, it wasn’t just a dream.
It’s not a matter of the past or the future. It’s not even Ancia’s memory.
This is a scene in the ‘Beast and Lady’.
The last scene which had been forgotten for a long time, came up.
Diana lifted the curse.
When Blake died, the curse of the goddess was given to George, the son of Richard and Diana.
I was lost in thought and soon, came to my senses.
Where am I?
Oh, it’s the library.
I think I fell asleep while reading a Zelcan history book.
I hurriedly got up and headed Blake’s bedroom.
As soon as I opened the door, I heard a groan full of pain.
Blake sentences covered Blake’s body. I rushed to him.
As soon as I confirmed it was a curse sentence, I froze.
I realized the meaning of the letter carved in the stone plate taken from the lake.
— The curse sentence that engraved the 6th prince’s body has changed.
The stone plate clearly said so.
And now, Blake had the curse again, the sentence of the curse covered his left body, it was exactly like before it was lifted.
Rather, it spread even more than before, and the shape changed.
Blake’s hands had ancient letters on them, it was like a tattoo that covered his hands.
I hurriedly took off his shirt.
His body was also engraved in ancient language.
[Save me! Laontel! Please save me! I’m alive! When are you coming? You promised to be with me. Laontel, I hate you! I hate you so much! Come on, save me! Ahh! It’s painful, hot! It hurts! Laontel, I’m so tired. I can’t stand it any longer. Save me. Please save me. Laontel come on, save me! Phillip betrayed me.]
This is not a curse sentence to me. It’s a message.
It’s a message from the goddess, the cry of the goddess filled Blake’s body.
The goddess did not curse Phillip’s descendant. She was leaving a message asking them for help.
[Save me! Please save me!]
Again, there was a cry of the woman.
Now I could tell who the owner of the voice is. It is owned by the goddess of light.
She was trapped in the darkness and asked me, a descendant of Laontel Bellacian for help.
I need to save her. But no one’s completely lift the curse that has been around for a thousand years.
Where’s the goddess?
Then a bright light came to my necklace. I looked at the tears of light.
The powerful light from the necklace quickly enveloped my body.
They’re taking me to the goddess’ place.
I’m trying to follow them but Blake took my hand.
“Ancia, no. Don’t go…”
Blake caught me not even distracted by his pain. His hands are very hot.
I had to save the goddess as soon as possible and completely lift the curse.
“I’m going to lift the curse completely this time.”
“Don’t go, you can’t go.”
I wanted to be with Blake, but I didn’t want to do nothing while watching him in pain.
The tears of light knew where the goddess is and tried to guide me there.
I didn’t know when this kind of opportunity would come again if I didn’t go now.
“Don’t worry. I’ll be right back after I lift the curse. So please wait for me.”
I took out his hands carefully and left my body to the tears of light.
When the light has engulfed my whole body, a desolate landscape unfolded before my eyes.
Where am I?
There was no grass or trees in sight.
The barren land stretches endlessly.
And when I turned my head, I saw a black thing, which was dug like a volcanic crater.
There is no end to it, as if a giant monster is opening its mouth widely.
That thing is the same as a description in the novel, the door of darkness.
Huh? I turned my head to a familiar voice.
Tenstheon who was standing on the other side, sees me and ran towards me.
As expected this is the valley of chaos.
And that black thing is the door of darkness.
So the goddess was locked in there?
“How did you get here?”
When I was suddenly here, not only Tenstheon but others are very surprised as well.
“Your Majesty! You must continue to close the door of darkness!”
I was about to explain the situation but someone was calling him.
“Is he closing the door of darkness?”
“Yes, His Majesty is in the process of closing the door.”
“Don’t close it yet!”
I cried urgently.
Then the faces of the people there were horribly distorted.
“Your Highness, what are you talking about? If we don’t close the door, the darkness will engulf all of us! And the whole world will be covered in darkness. No matter how young you are, don’t you know that?”
“Are you ignoring her, sir?”
As the emperor said so, the person who said that went pale.
He is the high priest who insisted Tenstheon to put Blake in a southern island and always sided with Duke Cassil.
His position was in jeopardy as the Cassil family was about to collapse.
“Tell me why then.”
Tenstheon looked at me and asked softly.
“That’s not it. The goddess of light is trapped there!”
“Yes! We need to save the goddess in order to completely lift Blake’s curse!”
“That’s nonsense, why is the goddess there? Who would do that! That’s an insult to the goddess of light!”
The high priest burst into anger again and went to me.
He gritted his teeth and stepped back.
Now that no one will interrupt me again, I told everything I know to Tenstheon including the reappearance of the curse sentence in Blake’s body.
He listened to me carefully while gazing at the door of darkness.
“Then I’ll save the goddess who is trapped beyond the door of darkness. Do you believe me?”
“I always believed you.”
“Yes, you always believed me. I will save her. I’m going to leave here first.”
He tried to call a knight to escort me, but rejected him.
“No, the goddess is looking for me. Only the heir to light can solve this curse. I’ll do it myself.”
It must have been the goddess of light that showed me what happened a thousand years ago, and sent those Maculs to the Tenlarn Palace.
She kept giving hints to me, maybe I do have the power to save her.
“It’s dangerous here, you don’t know what will happen.”
“It’s alright! I need to do it! I promised to release Blake’s curse.”
While persuading Tenstheon, the knights suddenly shouted from behind.
“It’s a Macul!”
“Your Majesty! Avoid it!”
From the door of darkness came many Maculs. The Maculs came to me without hesitation.
Tenstheon reached out to me in a hurry but the Maculs reached me faster.
The Macul surrounded me and brought me to the door of darkness.
Tenstheon’s desperate scream was heard. I tried to call him but I was sucked into the darkness.
