In a quiet coffee shop. She waited with a nervous heart. It was her boyfriend, Kim Dong-hyun.
“Sorry, I’m a bit late.”
Dong-hyun sat down across from her smiling.
“You’re more pretty today. Is it because you were the one that asked to meet up first? I was always the one to ask.”
She didn’t say anything. She took a silent breath and spit out the words she had pushed down.
“Let’s break up. I can’t take it anymore.”
“What are you talking about all of a sudden, you said it wrong right?”
“It’s tiring now. I get goosebumps and get scared.”
His expression became dangerous.
“Who said we would break up? I can never break up with you.”
“Everytime I see your face, I really hate it.”
Suddenly, Dong-hyun stared at her with intense eyes.
“Are you seeing a new guy?”
“So you are. Who is it? Who is that bastard.”
She saw Dong-hyun with terrifying eyes. It’s really tiring. Especially, when he looks at her with those doubtful eyes, she got goosebumps around her entire body.
At first, she liked Dong-hyun’s pure feelings when he looked at her. But, as time went by, Dong-hyun’s feelings for her gradually turned into obsession and possessiveness.
Just looking at his face was torture
“ Stop doing this. This is why I don’t like you. It’s suffocating.”
“ It’s suffocating?”
“Yeah, suffocating. I should’ve broken up with you earlier. I was stupid for foolishing enduring it.”
“That’s a disease. Go to a hospital and get treatment.”
Dong-hyun looked at her with an angry face.
“Are you treating me like someone with a mental issue right now?”
“How you think of it is your feelings but, it’s true there’s something wrong. Let’s stop now. Stop messing with me.”
She grabbed her bag and stood from her seat.
“I’ll head out first. Let’s not see each other again.”
Dong-hyun had an expression that he was shocked by her words. But, there was no other way. She should also be able to live without suffocating. She left without turning back.
But, suddenly Dong-hyun stood from his seat and ran to take her wrist.
“Where are you going? I can’t let go of you even if I die.”
“I want to break up, I don’t like this! You’re extremely horrible!”
Dong-hyun laughed at her words like a maniac
“Really? But what should I do, I can’t let go of you even if I die.”
Dong-hyun pulled on her wrist hard and ran out of the cafe.
“Why this, let go!”
Even if she tried her best to struggle out of his grip, Dong-hyun didn’t budge and dragged her.
“Where are you going?”
“You said let’s break up, but I’d rather choose to die together than break up. Then you’re mine forever.”
Dong-hyun’s eyes shook with madness and fury.
“Let’s die together on the same day and time of our promise. Seyeon.”
“Are you crazy?”
“Yeah, I’m crazy over you.”
Dong-hyun dragged and carried her into the road
A big dump truck hit them as if it was waiting for them.
That was her end.
Chapter 1: I Became Priscilla
Priscilla opened her eyes this morning. She dreamt of the same dream. The dream where a crazy bastard dragged her and killed her. That man is the embodiment of obsession.
Her wanting to break up suddenly became dying together. In all, it turned out like that.
She was going to have to live with a completely different face.
“That crazy bastard made me look like this.”
“Who knew that I would enter a novel.”
Inside a novel. Lee Seyeon from South Korea became a character inside of a novel due to a crazy man. But the problem was.
“ Why an extra out of all people.”
<Tyrannical Cage>’s bad luck princess, Priscilla, who dies in the early stages of the story. She’s the princess of the Oren Duchy, but she was sold to a crazy emperor. Her father offered Priscilla in a panic to live.
More importantly, she was an extra that came out a few times in the beginning and then died. Once she woke up as Priscilla, she thought it was a dream.
She thought she was seeing things since she died, or she got into heaven or another world. After spending a week imagining all sorts of things, she now knew it wasn’t heaven, a dream, nor another world but it’s a novel.
How could this happen without someone turning crazy?
The novel that she was in was the novel that she used to read whenever she got stressed by her boyfriend. You have no idea how refreshing it was to read every time the heroine threw a soda at the obsessive male lead.
But what can she do.
She became an extra, not the heroine. A sigh comes out automatically.
“Who is Priscilla! Priscilla! What do you do?”
She’s a character she barely knew, and there’s not much information. She dies without even appearing in one page, so there’s no reason for there to be a set-up. And, there’s nothing she can do. She’s trapped in a cage that the crazy Emperor made, she couldn’t dream of escaping and she was abandoned by her family.
Likewise what power can she work on. She can’t even dream. All you can do is wait for the heroine to show up to be released from this case and earn your freedom back. When the heroine appears, the Emperor will fall in love with her, he’ll tear down this place and give her a brandly new palace. Then all the princesses trapped here will get their freedom.
Because the crazy emperor will let them go. But the problem is that she has to silently wait for that time to come. For the days where you don’t know when it’ll be.
Another sigh comes out.
“I barely lived after dying and I don’t know if I might die in the future.”
Originally, Priscilla died of suicide. And Lee Seyeon possessed that empty body. It’s something unbelievable.
Priscilla was miraculously revived. The bigger problem is.
She had to live in this quarrel.
The rear palace where Priscilla is confined to is where the Emperor lets all of the princesses he has collected in.
Micheal, the emperor of the Frances Empire and the male lead, is a war monster and a tyrant. When he raised his army, every country on the continent grew nervous. Because any country on the continent can’t compare and handle his black sword. He’s the continent’s best prosecutor and the continent’s best emperor of an empire.
Every time he conquered a new country, he took the most beautiful princesses as trophies and confined them in this prison-like palace. And he gifted these ladies special Imperial gifts by grade. Gold became a gold crown when lowered, silver became a silver crown when lowered
TL/N: Gold being the highest grade and silver crown being the lowest.
But if he can’t accept even the forehead, she was determined to be uncrowned. Of course, Priscilla was determined to be uncrowned. It’s because the Emperor didn’t grant me a grade.
Uncrowned had no choice but to be ignored by gold and silver crowns. If you weren’t granted anything, it means that you weren’t satisfactory to the Emperor.
Besides, she wasn’t in the position to be satisfactory. Since she already was abandoned by her family and her country. So she had no other choice but to make an extreme choice.
“I can’t help it at this moment.”
Considering she didn’t have the ability or money to escape. All she had was a pretty body.
“I have to endure. This palace will disappear when the heroine appears. I can be free.”
The Emperor will get rid of this palace when the heroine appears and build a new palace on her behalf. And all the captured princesses will be free. All the princesses with places to return to will return, and the princesses who don’t will have to plan for a suitable marriage.
Until then we just have to wait.
But the problem is.
“Jestina, the wicked woman.”
The palace’s influential figure, the heroine’s opponent, the wicked woman Jestina. She had control over this palace. Jestina had a lot of influence over why Priscilla committed suicide.
Considering that she had been bothering Priscilla for being prettier than her. She came to the palace to be the only princess from a rich kingdom.
Unlike the other princesses, she can spend her money like water and she has the most maids in the palace. Fortunately, there are no power fights due to the rule that personal knights cannot be left inside the palace.
“It would be nice if she didn’t bother me…”
Is that even a possibility?
Perhaps, it’s something impossible.
Considering Priscilla is so pretty, you can’t describe it with words. Light pink hair being the sole hair color on the continent, and eyes red like rubies that are dazzling beyond depth. In addition, with lips red like cherries that are moist to the point where it looks like juice would flow out at a touch of a hand, and skin white like a white gem with no blemishes. Her body is slim to the point where you want to protect it.
That’s why the mad Emperor invaded the Duchy of Oren and threatened to sacrifice Priscilla. When he threatened to turn the Duchy into a sea of fire, the Duke had no choice other than to offer Priscilla. This allowed the Duchy of Oren to stay intact, and cut down the amount tribute to the Empire by half.
If it’s to that extent, Priscilla’s beauty must have been judged to be valuable. So it’s natural for wicked Jestina to be jealous. On Priscilla’s first day at the palace, Jestina looked for her and cursed at her. And she often humiliated and ignored her in front of other princesses.
As a result, Priscilla couldn’t endure it and took her life.
That’s how Priscilla disappeared from the novel.
