I Became a S*ave to the Man I Abandoned: Chapter 28

Nox Renerio.

My entire body felt numb, and below my waist, I couldn’t feel anything as if it was paralyzed. Nox grabbed the sheet with his hands and somehow managed to stand up. He bit his lips, trying to endure the throbbing pain that rose from his lower body. It was a pain that felt unfamiliar.

Knock, knock-

And at that moment, someone knocked on the door. Nox hesitated for a moment. Was it okay for him to allow someone to come in? But since Nox didn’t respond, the person on the other side of the door spoke first.

“I’ll come in.”

Nox pulled the blanket to cover his body. He didn’t want others to see the marks all over his body. The maid who entered the room placed both hands on her belly and greeted him.

“I am Hanyang Marlene.”

Nox remained silent.

“You may address me as Hanyang.”

“Why me….”

Did she mean to be respectful? Nox wanted to ask that, but Marlene already caught on to his intention and shook her head.

“I’m only being respectful for now. Because from now on, as the Duke’s slave, I will be with the Duke. If you prefer it that way, you can refer to me as Hanyang.”

“A Duke…”

“Yes, Duke Khalid Via. He is the owner of this mansion.”

Nox nodded. If he had stood by the second prince at the forefront, becoming a Duke wouldn’t have been impossible. Especially now, when there were no remaining brothers of the second prince. As Nox remained silent, Marlene continued her explanation.

“I have prepared water in the bathroom. If you wish to take a bath tonight, you may use the Duke’s bathroom. On other days, you can use the bathroom attached to the room you will be guided to.”

A bath tonight…Nox unconsciously thought about last night. Yes, a bath tonight. Nox chuckled lightly. He wondered how he had ended up like this, but he was grateful to be alive. But was he really grateful? That question lingered in his mind. And before he could find the answer, Marlene continued speaking.

“After you finish your bath, I will guide you to the room where you will stay in the future.”


Marlene raised one eyebrow unexpectedly. Even though he had fallen from nobility to a slave, Nox didn’t know how to use respectful terms towards a Hanyang.

Nox didn’t pay any attention to her reaction and grabbed the gown hanging at the end of the bed. And wearing it, he headed towards the bathroom.

Taking off the clothes inside was a difficult task to do alone. But doing this alone, without borrowing someone else’s hand, sent shivers down his spine. Nox pushed away unnecessary thoughts and dried himself, then left the bathroom. Suddenly, he thought of how Khalid used to meticulously dry his hair after he bathed. But now, that was something that could no longer happen.

“Please change into these clothes.”

What she was holding out seemed like clothes for a servant, or rather, clothes for a houseboy. The black vest and trousers were smooth, and the shirt looked board-like. When Nox looked at the clothes questioningly, Marlene explained.

“You will also participate in the Duke’s external activities. So here.”

What Marlene was holding out was a bow tie to be worn with the shirt. It was decorated with silver and looked elegant, but Nox knew very well what it meant. A slave of the high nobility, a pitiful creature who couldn’t even think for himself. And an errand boy. Slaves considered this bow tie an honor, but for Nox, who used to stand in the position of the high nobility, it was nothing more than a bitter smile-inducing situation.

However, he accepted it quietly. The moment he put it on, it felt like his throat was being constricted lightly. Now, he would make sure that he only appeared as someone’s possession, as an object. No, he himself had become an object.

“Now, please change and come out.”


Marlene arched one eyebrow as if she was surprised. Even though he used to be a nobleman, even though he had fallen to the position of a slave, she didn’t expect him to use such respectful terms towards a Hanyang.

Nox took off the gown and looked at his reflection in the full-length mirror that was placed a little far away. The countless marks on his shoulders, nape of his neck, chest, arms, waist, and thighs were so numerous that it was impossible to mention every one of them. Touching them caused pain.

Nox sighed and put on the clothes. Perhaps there wouldn’t be many days left for his body to be in good health.

Shoo, clack. He slowly put on the clothes and tied the bow tie. He looked just like a perfect servant. At least in Nox’s eyes. The fact that he had noble blood flowing in his veins seemed like a story from a long time ago.

Nox opened the door and went outside. Marlene, who was waiting outside the room, gestured towards him. Nox began to walk, naturally adjusting his pace to Lady Marlene’s. Marlene glanced at him once, then closed her mouth quietly.

The two of them headed towards the guest rooms on the first floor of the main mansion. Nox asked.

“Will I be staying in the main mansion?”

“I made this decision because you need to come out promptly when the Duke calls you. Please don’t worry, as this was approved by the Duke.”

“It’s not really worry…”

It was because the treatment was better than he had thought. He had expected to receive treatment that was not even as good as the other servants. Marlene whispered quietly as if she read his thoughts.

“I have no intention of treating the Duke’s concubine that way.”

“Is that so.”

I Became a S*ave to the Man I Abandoned: 
												Chapter 2 Part 1

I Became a S*ave to the Man I Abandoned: Chapter 2 Part 1

Dolan collapsed onto the floor, clutching his blood-soaked head with both hands. The future he had envisioned, in which his son, who had always disregarded him, would kneel before him and admit that his judgment was foolish, was now crumbling before his eyes.

Despite believing that he could get his revenge on those who always pointed fingers at him for being foolish and greedy, his efforts ended with just a lump of flesh in his embrace.

It couldn’t be. This just couldn’t be. Feltyon looked down coldly at Dolan’s cries of despair and declared sharply,

“Prince Beorantz Ditrod Daidalontz is to be executed immediately for the crimes of regicide and attempted royal murder. The empress, as his accomplice, will be dethroned and confined to the imperial harem pending trial. And…”

His usually warm, auburn eyes now swept across those present like the sharp blade of a knife.

“Everyone present here is sufficiently suspected of having partaken in His Imperial Majesty’s assassination. They will be detained and interrogated.”

“We are innocent!” people cried out desperately from all sides, but the knights in gray armor began to seize them, forcing them to kneel as if they were corralling feeble animals.

Nox watched the chaotic scene with an unreal expression in the midst of it all. There were many trying to escape to the terrace, but nobody reached out to him as he stood motionless.

Surveying the surroundings with detachment, Nox’s eyes suddenly met Feltyon’s. A faint disgust flickered in Feltyon’s gaze. In that moment, Nox furrowed his brow, sensing that something was terribly wrong.

“And for those against whom there is concrete evidence of involvement in the assassination of His Imperial Majesty.”

Two knights approached Nox from behind and grabbed his arms. The black suit that had been enveloping his body got wrinkled in an instant.

Nox was dragged to the front and forced to kneel before Feltyon. Next to him, his father still clutched the head of the crown prince. Nox, rather than begging for mercy, lifted his head and stared straight into Feltyon’s auburn eyes.

“You cannot do this to me.”

Nox gritted his teeth. The emperor had wished to pass the throne to the second prince, not the crown prince. Nox had known this fact all along. But starting with his father, the patriarch, all the foolish elders of the family only saw what was in front of them and supported the crown prince with their power.

The emperor was physically frail but was by no means lacking in intelligence. Believing it could somehow be overturned—after all, the second prince was far superior to the crown prince—the Nox consistently provided information to the spy that the second prince had planted within their family.

‘I didn’t know about the assassination of the emperor, but I was the one who passed on the information about the attack on the second prince…’

He had thought he might not be able to save his family, but at least his life could be spared. However, given the current situation, Nox could not precisely gauge Feltyon’s intentions. Nox recalled the last letter Feltyon had sent him.

[A new dawn will soon rise. Just endure a little longer. Even though a false sun will ascend, it shall fall struck by an arrow. I have received the message that came as a bird. My thanks.]

And in that interval, Feltyon’s firm voice cut through like a knife.

“The crime of attempting to assassinate the sun of the empire is grave; therefore, you shall be executed here and now.”

Nox’s brow crumpled. Could it be, was he thinking of discarding Nox after use? He had thought only his foolish father was to blame.

Yet even so, no voice escaped him begging for his life. Just a sense of futility, thinking, so this is how it ends.

Even as Feltyon’s dark green eyes pierced him like daggers, he maintained a numb expression and raised his hand.

The knights standing beside Dolan and Nox did not hesitate to lift their swords. The cool sensation of the blade touching momentarily, assessing where to strike. And then, at that moment.

“Your Highness, I have a request.”

An unfamiliar voice interjected. Nox raised his gaze to look beside the second prince. A knight in gray armor, the one who had arrived with the crown prince’s head, was looking down at Nox from Feltyon’s side.

Hearing that strange voice, Nox felt an eerie sensation.
