Chapter 42. Restored (2)
“What’s that? Did something happen?”
“Oh, this. Hold on, Tae-beom-ah. First of all, this isn’t important….”
“This is not important?”
Baek Tae-beom’s face hardened even more.
“Hyung, why do you always talk like that?”
“Why do you say that your wounds are just nothing? Why do you always pretend you’re not sick and act like you’ll get better soon? Am I not even allowed to be worried?”
“This is a handprint. Someone strangled you with their hands. But it doesn’t matter? Then what does matter to you?”

“Why don’t you be quiet?”
“No, I wasn’t talking to you….”
Baek Tae-beom caressed my neck and clenched his teeth.
“Am I really an important person to you?”
“Tae-beom-ah. Listen to me… .”
“You’re going to make excuses again. Just like always!”
Baek Tae-beom yelled and bit his lower lip. I couldn’t say anything as I watched the tears welling up in his eyes. When he blinked, the tears streamed down. Baek Tae-beom was crying.
Because of me?
“I am nothing to you, aren’t I?”
“That’s not true! You’re….”
I was speechless. You are my precious contractor. The one who will destroy the world. Is there anything I can spit out? If I reveal that I am his constellation, will Baek Tae-beom believe me?
“You’re— a good… Dongsaeng.”
Baek Tae-beom bowed his head toward me and cried.
“You can stop now. Helping me out, with that kind of sympathy.”
“I know everything. You’re helping me just because you’re a nice guy. You don’t have any feelings for me.”
“What do you mean by that?”
“You still have no idea?”
Baek Tae-beom smiled faintly.
But, I could no longer hear his words as if something had blocked them. I tried to blink, but I couldn’t. I tried to breathe, but I couldn’t. I couldn’t even swallow my saliva. I couldn’t do anything. I felt as if I was being weighed down by a great and heavy disaster. Baek Tae-beom’s tearful expression gradually distorted as if he couldn’t believe what was happening. My head lowered slowly, followed by my falling gaze.
At first I wondered what this was. My judgment was slow, and I couldn’t recognize it properly. However, I recognized it belatedly as the red liquid flowed down my body.
It was a knife.
A knife was piercing through my stomach. I tried to open my mouth to say something, but I couldn’t close it properly. Hot blood ran through my throat. Everything was drenched in red blood.
[You are drawn to death.]
Only then did I realize that there was a black fog surrounding us, and I also realized that it was Yoo Jin-woo, who had an abnormal condition that stabbed me in the back. I could hear Baek Tae-beom’s voice shouting. And someone grabbed my falling body.
“N-no, no, no… Hyung, no, please. Look at me. Hey, wait, please….”
Each time I blinked the scene changed. Baek Tae-beom was crying again, angry, and he was sadly holding my hand, shouting something.
[You are approaching death.]
“I, I didn’t do it!”
Yoo Jin-woo screamed. I wanted to scream in pain too, but no voice came out. No, I have to tell you, Tae-beom. I have to tell you.
I have to tell you not to worry.
My eyes were damp. Baek Tae-beom’s tears slipped down my cheeks.
“No, no, you will live. I can save you. It’s going to be okay. It’s going to be okay. Hyung. Huh? Look at me. Look at me, please… Don’t close your eyes. Don’t leave me behind….”
[Your contractor is afraid.]
[Your contractor is terrified.]
[Your contractor is desperate.]
[Certain skills have been manifested as the conditions of your contractor have been met.]
[The constellation, ‘One Who Knows The Fall’ is synchronizing with the body.]
[The body of the constellation, ‘One Who Knows The Fall’ will collapse.]
[You are dead.]
[The body of the constellation, ‘One Who Knows The Fall’ will be restored.]
[You are recovering with a new body.]
[Remaining time: 1 year, 9 months, 27 days, 4 hours, 34 minutes, and 04 seconds….]
