Salvation, About Its Cruelty

20 Users bookmarked This

A commoner girl.

Olivia didn’t develop immunity to those disgusting words. Titles such as the first female university student and the best graduate became meaningless.

But one day…

The Herod royal family offered her the royal flower, Noah Astrid. Even though it seemed to be a flower full of poison, there was no way not to hold it and she couldn’t help but love the first flower she held.

Because it was like salvation.

“Where is the princess? She is supposed to attend an event with me today?”
Herod’s cynical and self-righteous King, the father-in-law.

“Olivia. If there is anything that you’re upset with Noah, tell me anytime.”
A beautiful queen, the mother-in-law.

“You’ll stay with me today, right?”
Even the cute youngest member of the royal family loved Olivia.

Except for one person, her husband, Noah Astrid.

He knelt down on his knees, put shoes on her feet, and held a glass of water to her mouth, telling her to drink it.
Then, he whispered cruelly with that beautiful face.

“Think carefully about what I should have received and what you have to pay me in exchange for marrying you. It’s not difficult.”

What she must pay for her salvation

It was the thing she hated the most in the world.

Noah watched in a daze as his salvation fell over the sea.


She was limp, bleeding and dying.

Only then did he realize that her existence alone was already salvation.

The price for salvation should not be paid by her… but by him.
