Terrifyingly, what was inside the black chest was the chopped off head of a person.
Unnaturally large eyes.
And a perturbed expression.
The people that saw the decapitated head could only imagine the pain felt at that time through that expression.
The state of the head seemed very clean, and new.
There was no rigor mortis, and not only did fresh blood drip down from the neck, the skin shined as if still part of the body.
It was believable to say that this head had just been chopped off.
This was only possible since Kang Chul-In had asked Nilus to use the life-force spell on the head, making it seem completely fresh and new.
“Don’t tell me…”
At this moment, the gazes of many of the lords turned to Alex Rothschild.
And at that moment, Rothschild was frozen on the spot, as if he were a statue.
“I-It’s the head of Rothschild!”
Dorian, who was famed for having no care for his surroundings, spoke. It was like spitting on , it was killing him twice over.
What was inside was the head of Rothschild, or more accurately, the head of his clone.
Though it was a shame that it wasn’t the head of the real Rothschild, it was terrifying to think that Kang Chul-In had kept Rothschild’s decapitated head, and left it in his office as adornment.
