Namgoong finally broke his character to apologize to Haewon, but in an unexpected turn of events, Haewon decided not to accept Namgoong’s apology. In Haewon’s defense, she only did this to build up Namgoong’s character, because she knew he was the main character.
Now that Namgoong has decided to shake hands with Haewon, what will happen next? As Haewon prepares for war, fans can only wonder what could happen!
The chapter opens with Haewon chatting with Namgoong and Jowoon. Namgoong stopped Haewon because he thought that what he just said could make the Dan clan enemies of the entire murim. Haewon admitted that she made a mistake because she overestimated Namgoong’s ability to judge things rationally.
Haewon then asked Namgoong if he had calmed down or if he would continue to despair. Namgoong was tense because of Haewon’s thorny taunts but he couldn’t do anything. Jowoon wonders what happened to Haewon and Namgoong, while Haewon thinks that maybe she was a little too harsh just now.
Haewon thinks her anger is justified because it’s not the first time she’s been caught up in something that almost killed her, but her male lead is still an idiot who can’t think with a clear head. Haewon advised Namgoong to be a little more careful from now on.
Despite Haewon’s best efforts to be kind, her words still came out like thorns aimed at Namgoong. Haewon added that she has never been wrong since the day she broke off her engagement with Namgoong. She said that since that day, she has been thinking clearly so she knows who is on her side and who is not.
Namgoong asked Haewon if she considered him to be on her side, but Haewon replied that he should find out for himself. Jowoon silently listened to this argument and wondered if there was still any feelings between Namgoong and Haewon. He looked at Namgoong and wondered why he looked so pitiful even though he was the one who broke off the engagement.
Namgoong said that he thought a lot after the incident in Shaolin, and he realized that he was rude back then. Namgoong told Haewon that he was truly sorry for everything he had done. Haewon wondered if Namgoong would sincerely apologize to her or if he was truly sincere this time.
Haewon thinks this argument is necessary because it will help Namgoong, the main character, become more mature because he always has too simple thinking. Haewon also said that this incident could also mean that Namgoong will not become the main character.
Haewon told Namgoong that his apology wouldn’t mean much if his actions were different. She added that she would not accept Namgoong’s apology just because he broke his noble pride and apologized to her. Namgoong was shocked to hear Haewon’s refusal.
Haewon said that Namgoong probably didn’t expect her to refuse his apology and ignore him. She added that Namgoong can apologize to her as much as he wants but he should know that the world does not revolve around him.
Jowoon continued to listen to the argument from afar. He wondered if Haewon would be called a villain because she was so mean to everyone. He then looked towards Namgoong and saw how pitiful he looked. Jowoon doesn’t understand why Namgoong would think of marrying a woman like this.
Meanwhile, Haewon also felt a bit sad for Namgoong as she vented all her anger on him just because she found him to be an annoying main character. Haewon thought that perhaps Namgoong needed to hear such harsh words because in the long run he would be useful to her.
Haewon told Namgoong that even though she did not accept his apology, she still believed in his good nature and so she wanted to combine their powers. Haewon asked Soye about her current amount of money and then decided to send a message to the Yunnan Mountains.
Haewon also gave other orders to Soye. Namgoong didn’t understand what Haewon was trying to achieve but Soye immediately realized that Haewon was preparing for war. Namgoong was a bit scared because they lacked manpower, but Haewon still believed in him so she asked him again if he could lend his strength.
