"Are you happy now? Killing yourself on purpose."

The bomb Carl drops leaves everyone speechless.

"Lord Valentine, what is Carl talking about?" I ask, my voice quivering. It's too much to take in. I was killed as a sacrifice for a dark curse. The fact that Lord Valentine no longer has a body to return to in his own world. The fact that he will stay here with me forever. And now this?

"Don't listen to Carl. He is just complaining because I gained immortality without going through the things he had to go through, " Lord Valentine says teasingly.

"Hey, Vale's princess, do you know why his mother gave up so easily in the end?"

Come to think of it his mother did give up surprisingly easily. She was insistent to bring Lord Valentine home, but in the end she just... gave up. Like she admitted defeat.

I eye the two men in front of me suspiciously. Suddenly I'm afraid to hear the truth.

"In order to send your soul to a different universe..."

"Stop, Carl!"

"Please tell me the truth, " I say at the same time.

Lord Valentine wants to say something but in the end he hangs his head down in defeat.

"He exhausted his power to send your soul to a different universe. The power that could originally be used to save himself. The power that could break the curse that was put on him."

"That's why... that's why your mother said it's fate, " I mutter softly. "So it's all my fault in the end."

"No, please don't blame yourself, Ianthe. It's all my choice. I'd rather you live." Lord Valentine grabs my hand and gives it a squeeze.

"That's right, it's definitely not your fault. It might take time for his power to recover, but he could ask for help. But he didn't. He wanted to leave this world, he wanted to stay in yours. That's why he voluntarily chose to neglect the chance to break the curse until it's too late. That's why he voluntarily neglected the safety of his own body even if he knew

wer. It's not fair for both the potential bride and myself." Lord Valentine smiles bitterly. "I contemplate faking my death and running away. And then that... incident occurred. That just seemed to be a too good to be true opportunity, so I grabbed it. If I stay there, I don't know what will become of me. I am suffocating. I feel like I am sinking."

This is not the Lord Valentine I have come to know. He should be shining like a star, not being shrouded in darkness and despair. Without thinking, I give Lord Valentine an embrace in the hope of comforting him.

I am staying by your side, so please do not despair.

Lord Valentine is definitely shocked by my advance, but after a second he returns my embrace.

"Thank you, Ianthe, " he whispers.

When I pull myself away with my face as red as a tomato, I realize Carl has disappeared. A note is left on the couch. I pick it up and read it out loud, "Thank me, Vale."

"Thank him? I don't understand." What does Lord Valentine have to thank him for?

Lord Valentine bursts out laughing. "So it's all his plan. It seems like I have to return his favor."

"I am not following. Thank him for what?"

Lord Valentine pulls me into his embrace again and says with a sweet smile hanging on his mouth, "Thank him for this."
