Chapter 77 – Following a ray of light in the darkness (9)
“What does that even mean?”
Phillip wanted to solve the curse for his children.
He was going mad day by day because of the curse.
“His Majesty had always killed the cursed children! It’s my John’s turn now! As soon as John was cursed, he put him in a jail. He can’t contact anyone, not even his own mother, the emperor refrain me from meeting him. If this continues, John will die!”
The children died day after day but the speed was getting faster.
Turns out this wasn’t because of the curse.
Phillip Killed his own children with his hands.
So that’s why the children always died faster than before.
“Save my John! His Majesty will listen to you! Please help me!”
I nodded after much consideration.
I wanted to save the child.
I couldn’t turn a blind eye to a mother’s cry for her child’s life.
And I wanted to see the sentences Ser gave them.
I headed to the underground prison where the 6th prince was locked, guided by the fifth wife.
Countless knights blocked me.
But I also had the power of the goddess, no one could match me other than Phillip.
Using the powers to subdue the knights, a woman’s voice came into my ears.
[Laon, save me! I’m scared. Please save me!]
This was Ser’s voice.
As expected Ser was still alive.
She has been calling for me.
She was always screaming desperately in my mind, but usually I can’t hear her anymore because Phillip blocked her voice.
“Ser, where are you? I’m coming. Where are you now?”
At that moment, a bright light came from the necklace Ser had given me.
If I follow this light, can I meet Ser?
Then the fifth wife who was next to me, suddenly fell down screaming.
The knights who went after us were crushed by the lights.
The lights were circling all over the underground prison.
It warped and distorted, unable to overcome the evil power of light, the people nearby vomited blood and lost their lives on the spot.
The necklace which was shining brightly has returned to its original state.
This was Phillip’s power.
I thought he was out of the place. Is he back?
I ran to a place where I felt the power the most.
Phillip was about to commit another crime.
I opened the door to the deepest place.
On the floor was a spell made with blood and in the center was a young boy with silver hair like Phillip.
‘That kid is the 6th prince.’
I recognized him at once because the boy had black letters on his body.
I came nearer to his body and inspected it.
[I am the goddess of light, I was deceived by Phillip, deprived of my powers and trapped in the valley of chaos. He has committed numerous sins using my powers. He spread the contagious disease and framed prince Rakshul.]
Now I realized why Phillip was going crazy.
He wasn’t worried about his child, he was afraid that his sins would be revealed.
He killed his children to hide his sins.
“I told you to not get out of the tower, Laontel.”
Phillip said while standing outside of the spell.
“You want to do something bad on your son! Are you really going to kill your son like this?!”
“I didn’t want to kill them either! I did my best to save them! I even went to the valley of chaos! She tried so hard to go out and I put her back in. But that curse didn’t go away either! Damn it!”
Phillip’s eyes were full of madness.
He was already out of his mind.
“You locked Ser up again?”
“Ser, Ser, Ser! Shut up! Please stop saying that girl’s name!”
With Phillip’s scream, his powers attacked me.
As soon as his powers penetrated my body, I felt pain all over my body.
I fell to the floor as Phillip looked at me.
“Don’t disturb me, stay where you are.”
He used his powers to restrain my limbs.
Phillip soon gazed at the 6th prince.
“This time, I’ll really get rid of it.”
Phillip said the spell. Powers began to spread near his body.
Phillip was pouring out his power he received from the goddess.
The power twisted violently and became evil.
The 6th prince screamed in pain as the letters in his body gradually faded away.
Wait, no, another sentence overrides it.
I realized what Phillip was trying to do.
He was putting a curse on his child.
The prince trembled in pain, Phillip’s curse was powerful enough to erase the goddess of light letters.
Soon, the letters from Ser disappeared completely.
Instead of the message she sent, another letter filled the boy’s body.
The 6th prince eventually failed to overcome the pain and passed away.
I forgot the pain in my body and was shocked.
Phillip’s laughter resounded from the prison originally filled with silence.
“Hahaha! There you go! I win! It’s my victory. Serphania, are you watching? You lost to me! You got nothing now. No matter how many sentences you leave, no one would know now!”
He laughed and screamed madly.
I crawled on the floor, ignoring his laughter.
Phillip poured out all of his powers, and the powers spread into the boy’s wound.
I crawled towards the boy, squeezing my strength while vomiting blood.
I was worried about the boy.
Soon, I arrived next to the prince. But the boy didn’ breathe.
Phillip responded to my words.
“Your son is dead.”
Phillip’s eyes grew bigger in delight.
“Yes, I knew it!”
He smiled and opened another door in the prison.
Inside the next prison there were boys and girls with silver hair like Phillip squatting in fear.
“Who is it? I killed him that means the curse will transfer to another one! Who is it this time?!”
Phillip checked the children while shouting.
The frightened children burst into tears as soon as he entered.
Then he saw a boy with a sentence engraved on his face.
“There you are!”
He exclaimed joyfully.
The message sent by Ser disappeared completely and only the letters he engraved were visible.
“It’s my complete victory!”
Phillip rejoiced as if he had won the war.
I closed my eyes as soon as I heard his laughter.
The 6th prince died and the curse was transferred to the 7thh prince.
Phillip was full of joy as he gathered the nobles on the capital.
He showed the letters engraved on the 7thh prince’s face.
“I’ve heard a rumour going around that I betrayed the goddess. It’s all a lie. Look! This is the curse sent by the goddess, but not because I betrayed her! The goddess gave me strength to establish Asteric. She hoped Asteric would receive eternal glory, so she marked the seed of tyrant who would lead the empire to destruction!”
Phillip escaped the blame again but, he marked his innocent child as a seed of the tyrant and a corrupted soul.
The 7th prince was seriously in pain everyday.
The power of the goddess and Phillip’s power collided and tormented his body.
He wouldn’t live long if this continues.
No matter how long he endured, he’ll die before he became an adult.
Phillip tried to get rid of Zelcan’s letters.
He was afraid that his sins would be revealed.
So, after the curse appeared, he began to obsessively try to get rid of Zelcan’s letters.
His deed was again blamed on the Roums, who had done many bad deed.
The message of Ser was overridden by his spell, Zelcan’s letter gradually disappeared.
With that, Phillip began to relax more.
He moved my residence to South Star Palace, I would die soon anyway.
I didn’t have anymore strength to endure this pain.
After Phillips’ attack, my body was completely destroyed.
Even sitting was painful.
I couldn’ use my powers and couldn’t hear Ser’s voice again.
“Laontel, I’m sorry. I was out of my mind back then.”
Phillip apologized to me everyday.
“I’ll heal you, I’ll heal you for sure.”
He grabbed my hand and wept.
But it was impossible.
Phillip had an enormous amount of light.
However, he lost it all because he used it to fight Ser.
He sealed the place where Ser was stuck, he also use his power of the former land in fear of the truth being revealed.
No matter how powerful Phillips is, he already strain his powers.
And this time, he gave all of his power to hide the message from Ser.
Now he only has a little power left, if it was the old Phillip, he can cure me right now.
