TW/CW – in this chapter there is a part that mention about rape and violence. (it started from the paragraph with * at the start).
No matter how much she tried to hold back, her moans escaped as pleasure flooded her body, which ignited Carr’s desire further. Each thrust was deeper, stronger, and rougher than before, chasing after the orgasm that they both needed. The obscene sounds coming from where their body were connected and their groans of pleasure filled the forest. It was wrong to take their pleasure out in the open, while the sky was watching them, and it pushed Senia to the edge faster.
“C-Carr….. I… I’m c-close….”
Senia’s whole body shook, so close to her orgasm that she lost the strength to support herself. Carr leaned forward, biting down the juncture of her neck, as he continued to ram his cock into her pussy triggering Senia’s orgasm.
The wanton cry coming out of Senia’s mouth could only be described as sinful as her body trembled at the force of it. She was completely spent with no strength left in her. She leaned on Carr’s body like a broken doll as he filled her with his seed, triggering yet another mini orgasm.
While Carr was gathering his thoughts after mind-blowing orgasm, there was a buzz nearby and the time to enjoy his afterglow was shortened.
“Did you say that the strange noise came from this side?”
“I’m telling you. The villagers aren’t armed, are they?”
“They don’t have any guts, you saw them in the village earlier and even if they came here, we could just catch them as more hostages.”
“Hahaha. That’s true… wait, who’s there?”
The two dressed themselves in a hurry, before they were spotted by the bandits. It was hard pretending to be calm when their hearts were pounding inwardly. Fortunately, the bandits didn’t notice any strange signs and just laughed at Carr and Senia.
“What are you guys? Travelers? Huh, even one of you looks like some sort of priest?”
“You came to the wrong place. We’re in control around here, so you can’t get past without permission.”
The two bandits held a sharp long sword, but it didn’t worry Carr. However, when he was trying not to move hastily, Senia took a careful step forward.
“I came here after hearing the story from the villager. I need you to let go of the hostages that you took.”
The calm, carefree manner of the request left the bandits as well as Carr at a loss for words. There was no way, such a sweet request could persuade the bandits. They weren’t that foolish. And sure enough, the bandits laughed at Senia for suggesting such ridiculous thing.
“I’ll consider it if the beautiful lady is willing to give herself to us.”
“That’s right! If the beautiful lady were to keep us company, we’d let all the villagers go that we took earlier.”
For Senia who believed from the bottom of her heart that there was no such thing as an evil person, the blatant hostility left her disappointed in humanity. She understood that there were people who commit crimes for their own desires but she never condoned it. It was in her nature not hurt others, but instead tried to persuade others to see her way. However, this time such an approach didn’t work.
“Sir Carr. I…” Senia turned to Carr.
In an instant, he knew that he needed to restraint the two bandits and take their weapons away to protect Senia. However, before he could act, Senia spoke again.
“Now that I’ve got my power back, I will handle the matter. Please understand that I didn’t want to attract attention but this must be done.”
A bitter smile graced her face before a flash of blinding white light followed by a thunder sound. Carr reflexively raised his arms to cover his eyes and only when the light died down did he dare to open them. The two bandits, who were caught by the light, were laying on the forrest floor. There was nothing amiss in their surroundings.
“May the sun judge your sins.” Senia mumbled, hands clasped together around her pendant.
‘…what’s this woman? Wasn’t she the one who needed an escort to protect her?’
Carr swallowed nervously as he looked between Senia and the two bodies. He slowly approached them, expecting them to die instantly because of the light, but the two were still breathing albeit in pain. Their skin was badly burned, but it was only a minor injury compared to what he had expected.
“It’s a prayer in which the heaven’s punishment is given based on the weight of their sin. Although, even in the worst case, it won’t take your life.” Senia explained seeing the puzzled expression on Carr’s face, “I.. I will able to fight with you.”’
A blush coveredher face as she remembered that the only reason she was able to do this was because she had gained her power back from taking Carr inside her.
Carr nodded at her explanation, brushing the dirt off his knees as he stood up from examining the bandits’ wounds.
‘As much as the weight of the sin… there’s also some violent prayer.’
Heaven is not omnipotent and as much as Carr believed in the existence of Gods, he didn’t trust them. The dark thoughts clearly reflected on his face as Senia gave him a wry smile. However, for now they had another important thing to worry about, the rest of the bandits.
The two bandits that they had encountered must have been on patrol, and could not be far from the camp,. Just as Senia feared, the thundering sound from earlier had left the bandits in camp on gaurd.
Without hesitation, Senia used the earlier prayer to subdue the rest of the bandits. Carr attacked the bandits before any of them could touch Senia. His sword, which could break bone with a single blow, was a beast against the bandits. People would have thought that Carr only succeeded solely because of the weapon, however, he had developed his own method of swordsmanship after years living on the run. He was simply so powerful that none could match him.
“Don’t kill people.” Senia muttered tearfully as she revived the dying bandit that clashed against the raw power of Carr’s sword. He didn’t understand the needs to keep the bandits alive, after all this was a matter of survival and so he ignored Senia’s request.
Less than an hour later, the leader of the bandits collapsed in front of them. It was a short fight and it was natural, after all one of them was a saint that loved by a God and the other was a demon who was born from a human.
However, the next part was what worried Senia.
They could hear sobbing and prayers coming from behind the door of the warehouse. Carr knew the origin of the sound and yet he still stood in front of Senia, protecting her. He opened the door, revealing blindfolded women with their hands tied behind their backs. Their age ranged from elderly women to little girls.
The sound of door opening only heightened the women’s distress and Senia who noticed the face quickly untied the women with a reassuring smile.
“You don’t have to worry anymore. Everyone back in the village is fine.”
“Ah… thank you. Thank you very much…!”
Everyone cried out in joy, filled with a sense of relief after knowing that they were freed and that there was no need to fight anymore.
*Senia slowly stood up after the last of the women walked out of the warehouse and move to the second door. However, what lay behind the door only hardened her expression. Carr was too stunned to avert his gaze from the sight that greeted them.
Young women lay naked on an old, dirty beds. The sheets stained with blood and dirt, giving off a rusty smell that made him sick. He couldn’t even tell if the women were alive or dead based on how lifeless they looked. Their body were covered in bruises and wounds.
The light and sounds of footsteps entering the room were enough to leave the young women cowering in fear, trying to wrap the dirty sheets around their bodies. In this small dingy room, they could tell what had happened on the dirty beds without the need of explanation.
“I expected it… but it’s worse to see it in person.” Senia frowned at the sight and slowly walked toward the women. However, her shadow approaching left them screaming in terror.
“….It’s fine. It’s over now.” Senia gingerly climbed to the bed, covering her pristine robe with blood and dust.
“You don’t have to suffer anymore.” She said gently with wavering voice, trying to calm the scared women, “I’m sorry that I’m late.”
One of the women groaned in pain as she edged closer toward Senia. When she reached the saint, she hugged her while sobbing into the Senia’s shoulder. They cried together. Senia understood how scary it have been for the women to be abducted, abused, humiliated, and then left to die. There was no sound to their cry, there was no need for it.
Carr stood in the doorway and couldn’t take his eyes off from Senia. He had never seen her cry before, not even when he had taken her virginity. But there she was, hugging and crying for someone who she had just met today.
She’s clearly a saint. She cried for someone that she couldn’t save sooner. She dirtied her pure white robe to comfort the victims. She was indeed a saint, everything that she had done was holy and Carr couldn’t erase the beautiful, heartbreaking sight from his mind.
Five women had been raped in that small room. The moment they walked out of the room, after calming themselves, the rest of the women in the warehouse saw what they had gone through and quickly gathered them for a comforting hug.
Senia watched the scene from a short distance was filled with grief.
“Even God’s power…. can’t do everything.” The words were uttered quietly in lamentation. It was so quiet that Carr who stood next to her did a double take.
“I have the power to punish the wicked, to cure diseases, to attach severed arms and legs together, to bring back the dead, but…” Senia gripped her dirtied robe with an expression that had turned dark and hard to read, “…no blessings or prayers can cure a wound in your heart.”
Injured bodies can be cured. She could fix a broken bone. However, she could never heal a broken heart that had undergone trauma. It’s because the memory will always remain and never disappear completely. Out of the tens of thousands of diseases, both known and unknown, Senia could never heal the ‘disease’ of the heart.
