I'm in Trouble Because The Emperor Thinks My Time is Limited - Chapter 10.1
To begin with, nothing happened to me either.
The bleeding had already stopped while heading to the Imperial Palace in Lionel’s arms, but I was washed and changed without a single backlash.
When I had finally come to my senses, I had already been laid on Lionel’s bed.
I only heard it was the Imperial Palace, but I didn’t know I’d be lying in the Emperor’s bed.
In a way, it was a luxury.
“This is… not my room?”
“It’s all right. The priest will be here soon.”
You said it was all right, that everything will be fine. Everyone around me constantly reassured me. But in reality, the person most at peace right now was me.
Their faces were paler than mine, who had spilled blood.
Everyone but me was restless when the priest entered.
Although it was prohibited to run in the palace due to the palace’s laws, people ran around because of me.
“Oh my, Miss Lindel.”
The priest recited the oh-so-familiar recovery spell and touched my wrist to feel my pulse.
Even though I was breathing roughly, he was busy looking at me.
“Have some rest.”
When I spoke to him to catch my breath, he looked at me with tearful eyes.
Unlike the first time, his rough skin and drooping lips made him look pitiful.
“Are you okay?”
“Even in this situation, you are worried about me first. Don’t worry about me. How can I rest when you are having such a hard time due to my incompetence?”
I closed my mouth because I didn’t have anything to say to the priest’s words, but I heard Lionel’s maids whispering very quietly next to me.
“She thinks of others first even when she’s having such a hard time like this. It’s Madam Lindel after all.”
“Oh my. She’s so kind.”
“Such a person should be the empress.”
I just had to stay put. I remained calm and kept my eyes closed.
I thought I couldn’t say anything because I was scared.
“What do you think?//How is it?”
Lionel, who had been standing by me the whole time, asked nervously to the priest.
His face was stiff with a fierce look, but the priest was somehow not scared in front of the emperor.
The priest answered calmly with a serious face.
“Do not worry too much. It was not a big deal. The weakened skin was torn due to fatigue. This issue will be resolved if she gets sufficient rest.”
At the priest’s words, Lionel leaned on the bed and bowed his head. He also looked quite tired.
Lionel said with his head buried in the back of my hand,
“I want to go outside like this.”
I wasn’t angry, but my tired voice was rebuking me.
“You said you couldn’t sleep. What made you uncomfortable?”
“I just can’t sleep.”
I couldn’t tell him about my fraudulent contract, so I walked around. But the priest intervened.
“Do you have any symptoms such as feeling pain or shortness of breath?”
The priest sounded confident.
The priest was somehow different from usual. It was a little odd but I answered without thinking.
“There’s no pain. I’m a little out of breath, but I haven’t been eating that well lately.”
I was tired because I couldn’t eat properly, but there was no problem. The priest didn’t stop there and began to ask more questions.
“I have no appetite, I feel sluggish, and I often feel dizzy.”
“Is your back stiff and are your legs weak?”
I felt dizzy after losing so much blood each day, and I felt uncomfortable because I was lying down every day.
For some reason, he was pointing out my symptoms like tweezers, but I wasn’t surprised. Anyone who saw what my daily routine looks like would understand.
But the priest’s face was very serious and solemn.
“What does that mean?”
The priest’s attitude was very different today.
He was very professional for the first time since our meeting. And he was more distracted by my condition than being afraid of Lionel.
I felt very uncomfortable with this.
In other words, I shouldn’t have answered like that.
“I have identified Madam Lindel’s disease.”
Had I known that I would be getting such a ridiculous diagnosis, I would have shaken my head unconditionally.
“What is it.”
“Madam Lindel is currently…”
The priest replied with a wail.
“Her soul is twisted.”
TL/N: means her soul is poisoned or smth, but it’s basically what Lindel says, it’s a bs diagonsis.
What is this b*l*sh*t.
