Chapter 28: The Marquis wields his blade in retaliation ⑤ part 2
It is a punishment where the body is literally cut in two from the waist down.
This punishment is only given to very serious criminals. Commoners are usually given the death sentence by hanging. Even beheading is rarely carried out. The fact that this waist cutting is being carried out means that the person is a serious criminal.
I had decided to execute Ghazel and Armada by waist cutting.
My mother apologized to me at the moment.
”I’m sorry for being an useless mother who makes you bear everything.”
These were my mother’s last words. She would have liked to have taught me many things in the first place. The Marquis of Zafing is the head of the largest intelligence agency in the country, the Rubelzeis. It requires more responsibility and determination than an ordinary lord.
Ghazel, as son-in-law, was not informed about Rubelzeis, and my mother was seriously facing a number of responsibilities as lord, headmistress, and a mother. Unaware of this, Ghazel did not support her, but only satisfied his own desires. And then he killed her by poisoning her.
Before my mother closed her eyes, I noticed that the corners of his mouth were slightly raised. I even noticed it. How could she not have noticed? My mother’s life had been taken from her in desperation and injustice.
I swore at her funeral that I would kill Ghazel in the most gruesome way possible.
There are people who pontificate on the emptiness of revenge. If it’s vain, don’t take revenge.
But I am different. If revenge is the only way to get rid of the unpleasantness of Ghazel’s smirking face, then being tormented by the emptiness of revenge is a much more comfortable way to spend the rest of my life.
I can finally give you a cruel death.

Hmm there’s a slight problem… the blades they’ll use might be too sharp
