I'm in Trouble Because The Emperor Thinks My Time is Limited - Chapter 14.2
Glaring at the priest, I responded.
“You’re talking nonsense. I was a knight. I’m not so stupid as to know nothing about my body, and I’m truly fine because I’m not actually sick.”
“Madam Lindel, I’m not trying to say that Madam Lindel’s words are false.”
“Then check it out.”
I spoke in a confident tone. My glaring eyes did not waiver.
“Since you said I’m not feeling any pain, it shouldn’t be a problem for you to apply strength to my body right now? You’ll know right away if I’m feeling pain or not.”
Noticing my anger, the priest acted like he was in trouble.
“How dare I touch the one who will be Empress?”
“I am still just only an ordinary citizen. It doesn’t matter what you do during the treatment process.”
Nevertheless, when I didn’t seem to have any intention of taking back my words, the priest sighed deeply.
Knowing that he couldn’t help it, he rolled up his long, wide sleeves and came close to me.
“If so, I will do it.”
The priest told me with a determined look.
“I will use your hands. I don’t dare to touch other parts of your body. I’m going to hold Madam Lindel’s hand and press it, so if you feel any pain, please let me know right away.”
I held out my hand without hesitation.
They were all watching us both with anxious faces.
If someone who doesn’t know sees this, they may wonder what was happening. But we were extremely serious.
I had to express with my whole body that I was fine, so I was more enthusiastic than ever at this moment.
No more misunderstandings!’
The priest took my hand and announced the start with a grim face.
The priest’s right hand took my hand and began to press it down.
Feeling as cool as a massage, I swallowed my breath and concentrated more. When I felt the pressure, I thought I was going to scream even if I exaggerated.
But the priest did not use any strength. He felt uneasy about having to squeeze my hand, but his hands were trembling and he couldn’t help it anymore.
I couldn’t wait, so I lifted my focused eyes and looked at him.
I was going to tell him to use some proper strength, but the face of the priest who looked at me was burning up.
When I was surprised, the priest who felt my gaze, spoke to me in that state.
“Look, I’m putting a lot of pressure on you, but you don’t feel it.”
I was appalled.
‘This is what you call strength?!’
It wasn’t that he was weak because of his anxiety. He was squeezing her hand with all his might.
Only then did I notice the priest’s thin arm, which was like like a stick, exposed between the rolled sleeves.
He used his strength, but I didn’t know because the pressure was so weak.
‘Is he a baby bird?’
The skinny new priest seemed powerless, but I never thought he would be so weak.
When my mouth opened because I was speechless, the new priest was shaking off his hands, perhaps because he thought it was over.
His white hands showed that he was not lying.
“Did you really put all your strength into it?”
At this point, it was not me who was sick, but the new priest.
I’ve been trained as a knight, so I’ve been dull about pain.
However, even if it was, it was the priest who had a problem if I couldn’t feel anything.
However, others did not notice this fact.
“Unbelievable! What the priest said was really true!”
The lady-in-waiting sank to the floor with her hand on her forehead. Luna, who was standing next to her, hurriedly caught her and the lady-in-waiting leaned in Luna’s arms and shed tears.
When I hurriedly looked around, the reactions of others were also similar.
Everyone was looking at me with pitiful expressions.
Everyone thought the problem was me, without a shred of doubt.
Of course, no one knew that the priest was this weak, so it was a natural reaction, but I was going crazy.
“Don’t tell me you don’t feel the pain.”
One of them murmured in a dismal voice.
I rose from my seat like a madman, after hearing the nonsense, and shouted.
“It’s not that I didn’t feel the pain, it’s that the priest is too weak!”
But people’s reactions were still against me. The priest, the culprit of all this, was looking at me with a sad face.
“Stop admitting it now. It’s worse if you get excited.”
“What am I admitting?”
As I shouted loudly, in an instant, the ladies-in-waiting grabbed me.
I pulled my arms away and they told me to calm down, but of course, I couldn’t hear any of it.
My blood pressure rose as I shouted.
“Why are you so weak? Are you a baby bird? Huh? Does this even make sense?”
I threw away my manners and shouted. I couldn’t stand this atmosphere where everyone looked at me pitifully.
I was so upset that I was going crazy.
“Let me go! Let me go!”
“Madam Lindel, please stop!”
“Don’t get excited!”
The maids dissuaded me, and the knights turned their heads in dismay.
They responded that they couldn’t bear to see me being ruined. The lady-in-waiting and Luna were crying more sorrowfully than I was.
The new priest opened his mouth once again. His eyes were watery before he knew it.
“I understand you don’t want to admit it. But at times like this, you have to be more determined.”
After he left me shaking, The priest turned around and spoke to the knights and maids around him.
“I don’t think we can wait any longer. We need to find the Black Priest as soon as possible. Madam Lindel won’t last long at this rate.”
“I’ll speak to his Majesty and increase the number of search forces.”
A knight hurriedly left his seat and ran out of the room.
It was clear he was going to Lionel.
I resisted more, but Luna got up and grabbed me and stopped me.
“Is there anything we can do while we’re looking for the Black Priest?”
“Madam Lindel is unable to acknowledge her situation, so first of all, calm down. The illness of the mind will be immediately apparent from your body.”
“What should I do in the future because you’re so horrified?”
The lady-in-waiting patted her tears with a handkerchief. The new priest also lowered his head as if he could not stand it. I felt that my reason flew away looking at this sight.
I shook off the hands of the ladies who were holding me. Even though I was weakened a lot, I was not the one who could not shake off the hands of the ladies. I just couldn’t use my strength properly because I was afraid they would get hurt.
Everyone looked at me with a flustered face as I jumped out of bed in my nightgown.
I ran for the door quickly. However.
…I shouldn’t have done that.
