Becoming the Villain’s Family - Chapter 200
“This is all I can help you with.”
Gabriel, who was still sweating, touched his forehead and muttered while covering the nape of his neck with his palm.
“If I actively help you, the devil’s mark will activate again and I will be brainwashed.”
If that happened, he would hold on to Aria’s ankle again.
iIth Gabriel’s words, Aria answered without looking back.
“It’s enough. This is the end.”
As if to completely sever their relationship. It sounded like she would never see him again.
“The cage is open, so fly anywhere.”
Aria left with only those words.
It was a strange statement, as if Gabriel, not her, who had been imprisoned in a cage and was finally freed.
Gabriel, who stood for a while in the empty room where Aria had left, replied slowly.
The moment she arrived at the underground labyrinth Gabriel had told her about, she was lost for a moment about where to go.
Soon she was able to orient himself.
‘Sounds of conversation.’
She could hear the sound of loud talking. Not only that, but there was also the sound of something breaking, collapsing, and piercing all at once.
She ran aimlessly in the direction of the sound.
And when she finally arrives…….
“I can’t believe you came this far.”
There was Veronica, smiling contentedly with a clean face.
One side of her face, which had been horribly melted just before, was clean with no trace of distortion.
“It’s not like I didn’t fully consider the possibility of this happening.”
“Didn’t Gabriel tell you that when you come here, I’ll be stronger than before?”
Veronica muttered in a heartfelt voice.
“Thank you, but stepping out for justice is only possible when you have the strength to stand against me. At this point, you’re no longer brave, you’re just stupid and foolish.”
But Aria was no longer paying attention to whatever Veronica was talking about.
Because in front of Veronica, there was Lloyd, whose body was drooping like a corpse.
Is it a dream? Or did she just see a fantasy?
Lloyd’s body was sitting against the wall, not even moving.
Aria pursed her lips.
She called his name over and over again. She came over and knelt down on her knees.
Veronica just watched the scene. Like she’s doing because it’s interesting to watch Aria.
Aria dropped to her knees, holding Lloyd’s shoulders tightly and holding him in her arms.
‘He’s not breathing.’
No, it must be an illusion.
Aria held Lloyd tighter and lowered her head with a pale face.
She put her ear close to his face. She can’t hear a breathing
She placed her fingers on his neck. No pulse.
Even the heart…….
His already white skin had turned pale and was gradually losing its warmth.
‘No, that’s ridiculous.’
Aria thought as she held onto Lloyd’s weak hand and shared her warmth.
‘Blood doesn’t even flow.’
A person cannot die suddenly without showing any signs of injury. Yes, so he just passed out.
‘He said he wasn’t feeling well.’
He was in so much pain that he passed out.
Making an irrational decision, she sang the song of healing. She sang and sang again.
If she does that, Lloyd, who has completely stopped breathing, will open his eyes.
Veronica said, letting her laugh slip away as she couldn’t stand it anymore.
Awakening Aria to the reality she has been ignoring, and trampling on her.
“No, he’s not dead. How can he be dead when he looked like he was asleep…”
“I sold him to the devil.”
Throwing her into the mud.
“I sold Grand Duke Valentine’s soul to the devil.”
Aria slowly raised her head. Unlike her pitiful dripping tears, her eyes were deeply sunken as if they contained hell.
“God’s malice harbored by the Grand Duke’s soul must be crossing hell by now.”
Veronica was able to laugh heartily. It was thanks to all the troublesome things getting solved at once.
“If I can’t get God’s malice, it’s right to get rid of it. It’s also because I’ve cleared the obstacles that will ruin my brilliant future.”
Hell? Lloyd went to hell after getting his soul sold to the devil?
If the soul had already left this world, it would have been right to consider him as dead, as Veronica had said.
It can’t be.
“I certainly kept my promise to put you into Gabriel’s hands. But now that you’re here, that fool has released you from his cage.”
Then. She raised lips.
“I can do what I want now.”
When Aria faces a major crisis and overcomes it, Veronica gains greater power into her hands.
So what if Aria died and came back to life?
‘What if she goes to the brink of death and then I heal her just before dying?’
What if Aria repeats it endlessly? How much power does Veronica get?
“As expected, I should use you more.”
The malice she had received from the devil was still unsteady, wriggling inside her.
Veronica grabbed Aria’s hair without hesitation. She kept Aria away from Lloyd.
Aria didn’t scream or moan, her eyes still fixed on Lloyd.
Even though it was obvious that she couldn’t reach him, she stretched out her arm toward him.
Veronica was starting to get bored with that consistent response.
So she raised the power of God and fired at Aria.
Until Aria looked at her.
Until there is a change in Aria’s facial expression.
Weak human body. Veronica grabbed Aria by the collar as she became tattered in the blink of an eye, letting out a feeble breath and pulled her up.
“Now, be a good girl? It’s time to get healed.”
Veronica intended to show Aria to the priests before she died.
At that moment.
Aria pursed her lips.
It was obvious that she was about to sing a song, so Veronica laughed at it outright.
“Huh, what can you do with the Siren’s power?”
But Aria, with empty eyes without focus, didn’t care and started singing.
She sang a song to the devil.
“Come, sweet death.”
Veronica’s face, who had tried to laugh at Aria, hardened.
Aria’s breathing, which had gradually faded throughout the song, soon completely stopped.
Mammon pretended to be nonchalant, but he was currently jumping for joy at the unexpected profit.
It would have been better if it was God’s goodwill, but he got a part of God anyway.
When would that be? Will this opportunity come again in the next hundreds or thousands of years?
Have any other devils ever had this kind of luck in their hands?
To get half of God’s feelings. This is something his father, Satan, has never experienced!
He couldn’t hide his excitement at the thought that he would soon be able to get hold of God’s malice.
He acted alone, in complete secrecy, as he did not want to share this luck that he would never have again. The idea that only he could savor God’s feelings one by one was already making his mouth water.
‘By the way…….’
Mammon looked back at Lloyd, who silently followed behind him with a calm face.
He must be the one dragging human souls to hell, but he didn’t know why he felt like a guide to hell right now.
‘Is it because that human isn’t afraid at all?’
Then Lloyd should be scared of Mammon instead.
“Your soul will be tortured to no end and tormented forever.”
“Should we start with lava?”
The Devil of Greed threatened.
Then, Lloyd, who was silently walking with the scenery of hell in his eyes, answered.
“I must be clear.”
“You are not going to hell.”
The scenery of hell seemed to have moved like the human world.
The form may be the word. But the reality was completely different.
The traces of nature were not even visible, the buildings were in ruins, and the souls were biting each other like monsters.
Whether it was because Lloyd had a devil next to him or because they were overwhelmed by an unknown force, they didn’t even dare to approach him.
“I don’t want to show Aria anything like this for the rest of my life.”
A world full of red and black. Wouldn’t it be better if it was a completely different landscape from the ground?
It was more distasteful as it seemed to embody a world on the brink of destruction.
“Now you are in hell.”, Mammon emphasized.
He was actually speechless hearing Lloyd’s words.
They are currently in hell, is it sane to say that he was not going to hell?
“You seem to be denying reality!”
Mammon crackled with the bird’s beak and uttered a voluptuous speech.
“Listen, human. You are now in hell, and soon you will be imprisoned in my castle and ripped off your emotions for the rest of your life. Until not even the faintest light of your soul remains!”
Lloyd listened to the words with a bored expression.
“I’ll have to show you what I saw…”
It was then.
Mammon inadvertently turned his head, checked the figure in the distance, and his body stiffened.
It was Satan
With Satan’s appearance, the souls that devoured each other ravenously disappeared in an instant.
“I must have told you not to call me that.”
After the destruction of God, devils were completely forbidden from contracting with humans. However, Mammon broke the rules and contracted with humans and secretly sneaked into hell like a rat.
Seeing Satan, the Devil of Wrath expressing his wrath without hesitation, Mammon urgently made an excuse.
“But Satan. This is a human with ‘God’s malice’!”
Only then did Satan examine Lloyd carefully. And soon, his face contorted like a yaksha.
“A human with God’s malice? You’re not talking about Grand Duke Valentine, are you?”
“That, that’s right. But how could you have given a title to a mere human…”
“This worthless idiot!”
Mammon, crushed by the overwhelming force, gnawed like a dying worm.
“Don’t you know that the Valentine family are descendants of the demigod, Noah!”
