abilitate him quickly if things progress like this?’
The smile on his face was not one of boredom, but instead it was pleasant and a sincere response to her.
Citrina’s heart swelled with hope.
It was then.
There was a strange sound from the shore.

It was a sticky, loud noise that was easy to hear.
It was strange.
She had a hunch that it was something in the water, especially since it was a windless day.
‘What was that? Ghosts? A corpse? A person?’
A few possibilities flashed through Citrina’s mind.
After coming up with a number of scenarios, Citrina laughed quietly.
She doubted it could be any of those things.
Apparently, she’d watched too many gory movies.
Citrina didn’t know that Desian was looking at her closely.
‘If I’m curious, I can check it out.’
She was turning her back to look at the water.
However, as she turned her head, Desian called her.
Desian was looking at her with a painted smile.
It was a little decadent, but the smile on his drowsy face was beautiful.
But at that moment, Citrina felt a sense of discomfort.
“Desian nim, by any chance…did you hear a sound?”

“Perhaps there was nothing.”
Desian said as if he was certain of something.
‘The timing is a little odd, but it really doesn’t matter, right?’
To change the subject, Citrina spoke again with a small smile.
“Well, it’s just the two of us here, so it must have been the sound of the wind.”
Listening to her, Desian’s smile widened a little more.
It wasn’t a pleasant smile.
At that moment, the sound of wind came up as if someone had called for it.
“Yes, it was the sound of the wind since it’s very windy.”
Citrina nodded slowly at his clear answer.
Desian whispered as he watched Citrina nod.
He seemed to be talking to her, but his gaze seemed to be on the lake.
“Citrina, you know what?”
“I’m curious about something.”
“…What are you curious about?”
Desian’s piercing gaze was on her.
“So at this time, no one will be able to enter here.
Particularly the servants or a mage.”
“There is nothing here that can threaten us.
You can relax.”
His eyes were fixed on her.
Now, the desire that was not seen in the original story’s Desian was very apparent.
It seemed like the possessiveness of a young boy.
Nevertheless, what was certain was that Desian was not looking at world with a bored face.
“Us..is that right?”
“Yes, us.”
Citrina nodded slowly, listening to Desian’s sluggish voice.
It made her hopeful that he showed curiosity, and it was even better that he used the word ‘we’.
The fact that he was including her within his boundaries was a good sign too.
But there was one thing she had to be sure of.
“Desian nim, I’d like to ask you something.’
“Anything, Citrina.”
The desire that had been raw before was toned down.
To Desian who replied in a clear and friendly tone, Citrina said.
“If someone came into your space, what would Desian nim do?”
‘He said that no one could enter our space, so it is likely he is concerned with space.
How would Desian react to someone coming into his space?’
“I don’t want to imagine that.”
Desian’s attention fell to the shore.
Citrina looked at him with a bit of expectation.
“I would kill them.”
“Why, Citrina?”
His voice as he asked back was extremely sweet and friendly.
Citrina felt a rare sense of embarrassment by his innocent question.
‘Right, don’t panic, Citrina Foluin.
This is just another barrier to go over.
He didn’t say he would kill you!’
“No, you can’t kill people.”
“Why can’t I?”
It was a voice filled with doubt.
Citrina was at a loss for words.
‘Why isn’t this working? Is he just a bad person?’
Wait, she was being prejudiced.
You can’t do this, Citrina Foluin!
“If you kill a person, they feel pain….”
“If I kill a person, does Citrina suffer?”
Desian stared down at her.
“Um, I wouldn’t be in pain, but wouldn’t the dead person feel pain? Then the other people who know the dead person will suffer.”
“I see.
Citrina would not be in pain.”
Desian looked at her and smiled.
It was a friendly smile like yesterday.
Well it was very strange.
She could clearly hear the wind, but it sounded like someone’s dying scream was mixed into it.
Whether he knew what she was thinking, he kept looking down at Citrina.
Looking into his eyes, Citrina thought briefly.
‘Your solution is death.
And you don’t even know why killing is bad.
This is a very serious and profound problem.
I need to teach you not only emotions, but also morals.’
She thought her life was safe for the time being given that he seemed to feel positively about her…of course, his affection could flicker out like a candle in the wind.
She would need some more time for rehabilitation.
“You can’t kill people, Desian.
This is beyond just your personal feelings.”
Desian was watching her.
Perhaps he was reflecting on her words.
But Citrina felt that he had not fully understood what she said.
While Citrina and Desian were talking, the bodies in the water were slowly sinking.
In that dubious way, the servants that were watching over the annex met their end.
Of course, this was a secret Citrina was unaware of.
