2. The confinement is a little too much (2)

“Ari. Do you know that makes me even angrier?”

“I know you are angry, but what I said wouldnt change even if you chain me like this.”

At So-hees nonchalance, Deon shoved her–making her lose her balance—and he stumbled with her.

She ended up lying down while Deon was on top of her body.

“Why arent you changing? I dont want you to meet anyone. I want to chain you like this forever.”

“The more you trap me, Deon, the greater the desire for me to work against you.”

“Why?”

His grey eyes flamed with anger.

Although So-hee created him like this, that sharp, intimidating gaze was enough to make people cower in fear.

But Han So-hee, the creator of this web novel, wasnt afraid of him.

“The more I hate you, the less I feel for you and the sooner you die. Do you understand?”

“Ari, why do you keep saying weird things?” Deon asked as his palm touched her forehead with concern.

“No, Im not sick.”

“You started acting strange ever since you jumped out of the window. No!  Even before that, you kept saying weird things.”

“You think Im not alright?”

“No, youre definitely acting weird. Thats why I called in a doctor for you today. Lets meet him after lunch.”

“No, Im not sick, Deon!” So-hee cried out. “Please. Im not—”

Why is it so unfair even though she was in her dream?

“I think youre losing your mind, Ari.” Deon said sadly, wholeheartedly believing that he had lost his mind.

The bastard had no intention of listening to her.

“Oh, I know. Youre physically healthy as a whole, My Lady.”

A small, round-faced man paused for a moment before he scanned her all over again.

The doctor scrutinized the iron manacles on her wrist and said, “I think the lady is turning insane because she was tied up.”

“Thats right. Thats correct.” She replied with admiration.

So-hee, who had persistently pleaded her sanity not too long ago by screaming, applauded the doctors words.

“Please tell that man to stop acting like a barbarian right now.”

“Uh…”

The lawmaker couldnt speak when he saw Deon scowl at him.

He folded his arms in disapproval. “Youre wrong, old man.”

“What?”

“I tied her up because shes insane.”

“Thats ridiculous.”

So-hee drew a sigh between the discussion.

“Didnt I just tell you that she tried to kill herself?”

“Oh, thats right, thats right. I forgot for a moment.”

Deon just intimidated the doctor into saying he was right all along.

So-hee laughed in bitterly.What was the point of calling a doctor to check her condition, then?

“Suicide attempts happen when the patient is depressed. You seem to have a lot of worries from the beginning of the check-up. I will give you some psychological medication to stabilize your mind.”

“No, Im not depressed, doctor. I dont have any worries. Im wonderful.” So-hee grabbed the doctors wrist, which had quivered under the intense pressure of Deons anger.

Her eyes widened when the doctor shook her hand off him.

“You are not fine! Calm down, Ari!”

So-hee faltered back at the sudden shout.

As the doctor left in a hurry, a familiar silhouette walked through the gap of the open door.

“Its noisy here. Whats going on?”

The man was intimidating despite his gentle voice.

He had black hair, pale skin, blood-colored eyes, and cherry-red lips.

He shone as prettily as a typical male lead character written byyours truly.

“Joshua, what are you doing here?” Deon asked crisply.

Joshua merely approached them with a cool smile.

‘Wow, hes so handsome, too! So-hee thought. Itll be okay if this dream lasts forever.

For a moment, So-hee forgot her situation.

She swallowed her saliva upon seeing the male lead in person.

He even possessed such a gentle deep baritone.

“You said youd give me the divorce papers.” Deon calmed down and added, “Leave it here and get lost.”

“Can I talk to Ariad for a second before I go?”

Alert, Deon said sternly. “No. Just get lost.”

Joshua was about to put the envelope on the table, but his hand lifted it again.

“If you dont cooperate, I wont give you the papers.”

“You can just bring it with you and make yourself scarce.”

“Itll only take five minutes.”

It was clear that he didnt want Joshua to be alone with Ariad in that short period.

Deon stalked towards him and reached out an arm to steal the papers, but Joshua quickly turned his hand around.

“You two are so childish until the end.”

They narrowed their eyes at each other.

“I try to be. Deon, in the name of the royal family of McKinley,  get out of this room right now.”

Joshuas smile faded from his face and uttered a stern command.

Oh!

Joshua McKinleys charisma is just insane.

She couldnt believe she wrote such an excellent male lead.

When she saw the character she had written materialize in front of her eyes, So-hee could only watch him in sheer amazement.

“Hahaha.” Deon laughed, slammed the table, and walked away, obeying the crown princes order.

As soon as the door was closed, Joshua walked towards So-hee and watched her with interest as if watching a drama.

He bent on one knee and made eye contact with So-hee as she sat on the bed.

The very handsome first male lead stared at her with a smile and said. “Ariad Pearson. I knew that you wanted to be the Empress, but in the end, you kicked your own ass with that dirty body.”

As expected, the male leads words were fierce so unlike his friendly tone and bright face.

Her enemys eye scrutinized the chain tied to her wrist and it made him grin widely.

“Was this the effect of you having sex with a lot of men? This wasnt in our agreement, Ariad. Deon is such a madman.” Joshua snapped quietly. “Weve been married for years and I never wanted anything from you. I thought it would be fine if you met another man as long as he didnt ruin my reputation.”

“Yes, I know how you feel.”

“No, Ariad. If you really know how I feel, you shouldnt have acted like this.” After smiling kindly, he approached her with a sudden fright. “The day we first met, I felt so pathetic that I fell for that gorgeous shell of yours even for a moment.”

“I dont know what to say. Im sorry, Joshua.”

So-hee had no words to calm his beautiful face emitting fire.

She wasnt  Ariad, was she?

The light, short and insincere apology made Joshua lock his fingers around her neck.

Oh, perhaps this will wake her up from her dreams, so it wont be that bad.

As he applied more force in his hand, red blotches appeared on her pretty face and So-hee accepted the situation without resistance.

Then, her vision became blurred.
