A Villainess for the Tyrant - Chapter 233
Cecile felt her face sting and an immense pressure seemed to compress down on her body from the tension in the air. Estian’s ire felt so oppressive that it was difficult to breathe.
With her arms wrapped around her husband, Cecile said, “That man said he’s Crown Prince Ruin of the Hyun continent.”
Cecile had thought that Estian would at least pretend to be a little surprised, but he sounded genuinely unconcerned by the revelation. Recounting what she’d learned, she explained, “He said that I’m the one known as the Ender and that I’m destined to save the world. That’s why he has to take me back to his homeland…”
Estian’s body stiffened as he held her, and Cecile felt certain about what was about to happen next. ‘Crown prince Ruin is dead alright.’ Estian wasn’t simply angry now. He was on the verge of becoming a destructive disaster in his own right. The prince had said the world would face an insurmountable catastrophe, hadn’t he? Well, if that was true, then Estian was the mostly likely culprit right now.
“He said you’re shorter, have narrower shoulders, and are uglier than him too. And that I should leave you and marry him instead. He told me to sell my body for money, treasures, and status,” she continued.
“I didn’t put it that way!” Ruin cried, aggrieved by the accusation.
Cecile didn’t back down, turning to glare at him while she yelled, “But that’s about the gist of what you said!”
Estian gently wrapped his hand around Cecile’s chin and turned it so that she was facing his way again. He didn’t want her to look at the prince. In a tender voice, he began, “I usually don’t do this often because it’s such a bother, but…”
‘Do what?’ Cecile waited nervously for him to continue.
“It seems I’ll have to pull out the tongue of that knave.”
Cecile was speechless. Estian sounded terrifyingly serious.
The sincerity in Estian’s threat made cold sweat run down Cecile’s back.
