She was sent by God - Chapter 159.2
Agnes could not close her mouth easily. Laslo explained what had occurred as simply as he could. Agnes firmly gripped Laslo’s hand, knowing that she had left a letter and died on his behalf.
“You must have struggled after I died.”
For a brief moment, Laslo couldn’t speak. Agnes’ eyes were wet as she gazed up at him.
“I understand how you feel. I felt like hell every day after you died for me.”
“A life without you is not worth living. I wanted to die because it was so painful to open my eyes, but I couldn’t because you saved my life.”
Laslo’s heart ached at Agnes’ serene confession.
Laslo’s voice was hoarse and difficult to understand. He stammered several times but managed to get the letter’s contents.
“……if I were to be reborn, I would still marry you. Please don’t forgive me for being selfish; I’m sorry for going first.
“That’s a word I’d use.”
Agnes said while grinning. Laslo swept both of his hands over his face.
“When I returned to the past, I was also resentful of you. I wanted to ask why you made that choice for me.”
“Is that so?”
“You must have felt the same way. You too….”
Finally, Laslo was unable to contain his tears. The hurt, grief, and rage that had been suppressed up until that point burst forth like water that had burst the bank.
“I couldn’t bear to think that you lost your life as a result of my careless decision. I apologize, Agnes. I’m sorry.”
“It’s alright. Everything’s alright now.”
Agnes gave the man, who was taller than her, a bear hug. Laslo kissed Agnes’ cheek after wiping away his tears.
“I can’t even begin to express how fortunate I am to see you here again.”
The couple could only fully comprehend one another at that point. Even though it was late at night, they had relatively sharp minds. Agnes fixed her gaze squarely on Laslo’s.
“Sebastian is able to control the beast that resides beneath Manus Hall?”
“Yes, fortunately it appears that you can control it as well.”
“Hmm. That’s correct.
“This time, I really want to save the Queen,” said Laslo.
“You wouldn’t have gone in vain if I hadn’t sent you that way.”
“I’ll give the queen’s rescue more thought. Laslo, try not to be so harsh on yourself.”
Agnes gently swept her hand over his arm.
“Even in the past that I could recall, the queen alternated between life and death. She wouldn’t live long.”
“So, will it be the same this time?”
At once, worry and concern could be seen in Laslo’s eyes. Agnes shook her head.
“No, this time it will be different.”
“Please have a spoonful. Your Highness.”
“You’ll be in big trouble at this rate. Your Highness…”
Despite the maid’s pleading, Ilona didn’t move. She obstinately refused to eat and drank not a drop of water.
After she attempted to hurt herself, all the blades vanished from the room, and since yesterday, orders have been issued to fasten the queen’s arms to the bedpost.
The lady-in-waiting asked her several times with a sad expression to eat her meal, but Ilona flatly refused. She lay in bed, sobbing quietly.
“My poor son.”
Nothing could get past her throat when she thought of her poor son, who died because he had the wrong mother. She constantly struggled with guilt after eating. Her entire heart was dominated by the thought of wanting to die like this.
At the time, the voice of a servant, which she had heard for the first time, tickled her ears.
“Your highness, I have been ordered by Princess Agnes.”
“Don’t turn your head because we might be seen by others.”
Instead of responding, Ilona just blinked.
“The Arpad army will soon enter the palace.”
“Before that, I’d like to take the Queen outside the palace.”
The queen immediately closed her eyes after giving a slow head shake. All over her body, she was overcome with sluggishness. The person posing as a servant persisted and got closer to the queen.
“Are you going to end it like this?”
“Shouldn’t you witness the king’s downfall firsthand?”
Ilona wept quietly as she gazed into the air. She thought her tear glands were completely dry after sending her two sons, but tears flowed again.
“I want to…”
“I want to die.”
He was momentarily rendered speechless by the Queen’s low voice. The servant also understood that no amount of words could make her feel better.
He took a moment to look around before approaching the maid, who was a bit away, as though he had made a decision.
He then whispered something to her while secretly handing her a pocketful of gold coins. After accepting the money, the maid nodded and left the bedroom with a group of people nearby.
There were only two people in the room.
The face of the strange servant changed into someone she knew in the blink of an eye. For a brief moment, Ilona questioned her eyes.
