    Description:
    “Let’s divorce.”

    Sebastian Hughes was the son-in-law of my family.

    I thought that if I forced him to stay by my side, one day he would come to love me too.

    But then I realized.

    The only way I could love him was to let him go.

    ‘Goodbye, Sebastian.’

    I will let you go, from my cage. From my world.

    But…

    “Let’s start over, Aileen.”

    Why are you finally trying to come back to the birdcage?

    Seems readers are rooting for someone named Usher to be the endgame ML and wants Sebastian to just stay away and stick to Bianca.

    Based on the comment so take it with a grain of salt because MTL could be really clunky. Spoilers with (?) are ones pretty clunky to read so it might be wrong. I'll try to update it as I read the comment.
    + The author comment that this is a romance story between Aileen and Sebastian after their divorce so yeah...
    + But it felt more like a revenge drama. Aileen's family ruined Sebastian's family so he might be out for revenge after leaving.
    + Aileen will be met with three tragedy. The first one is that her parents will die.
    + Sebastian's lover name is Bianca.
    + The Crown Prince/Usher might be the second ML, he has always liked Aileen, so many readers are rooting for the Sebastian Bianca, and Aileen Usher to be end game.
    + The genre also has male regret apparently, even though FL is the evil one. This is the reason why many readers don't want them to be back together.
    + Sebastian's parents died when Aileen's family ruined them.
    + Aileen or her family won't compensate Sebastian fairly nor will she apologize properly. Aileen herself might becomes trash that can't let go even after the divorce(?).
    + There is also magic in their world apparently(?).

    I saw author's comment on Naver. It seems like that her husband is the ML.

    Hello! I am a writer. <Opened the Birdcage Door> is the story of a woman and a man after a divorce, and the process of realizing their love for each other amid hatred and resentment. I would be really happy if many people shared the love of Eileen and Sebastian and supported them! Happy New Year's Eve, I hope all readers are happy♥️ Thank you!

    If they're going to be a couple, I hope Bianca and Sebastian doesn't have a deeper relationship. I've been reading comments about Eileen being heartless and all. Let's see what the novel has to offer. Will step back and won't form opinions but I'll like if the leads are endgame, they would be each other firsts, then again I'm not forcing my opinion - mandatory to add because some of you take it personally. :sweating_profusely:

    Seems like Eileen has sowed a big trouble.
    I understand Sabastian's feelings.. Neither his family nor his parents are left behind. They say they will help the lottery as much as possible, but unless they save the dead or turn back time, they can't go back to their original state. After destroying it, you changed your mind, so you tell me to turn it off? What is this, the victim is still broken, but the perpetrator will compensate, so I can live comfortably and get rid of it in moderation? It's funny to say that they'll reward you if you want. Shouldn't he be compensated for the damage he caused? At least I'll give it to you in return, so I'm not going to give up, but I should give back what Ji stole first, and then I should apologize.

    This one is like the previous novel 'Dear Duke' in the manner that I don't want to read it myself, I want someone else to read it and spoil it for me.

    Episode 80.

    The sun that had been sinking all day completely disappeared.

    Soon the dark night sea unfolded before us.

    When no sun's light remains in the world. The remaining light of the sun is when it becomes the only moment of the moon that will be raining.

    At one point I turned back toward Sebastian as if determined.

    I thought it was time to say goodbye.

    "Sebastian.”

    “……”

    As I turned around, wriggling, his gaze came towards my face.

    "Until the last moment......... thank you very much for being with me."

    “……”

    "Thanks to you, I was really happy while I was here."

    At the last moment, all those things you've been through in recent days will be unforgettable even in death.

    The moments when I walked in the snow with Sebastian holding hands, the moments when I was having a snowball fight.

    Even the moment when he and I closed all the past affairs and confirmed our love.

    I felt like I was in a dream, not in reality, for a few days with him. Oh, my God. He and I are the only ones left in our dreams.

    Inside it I felt everything was becoming clear. No heart for him, no fate for me, no salvation for me.

    So I was really grateful to him. For letting me leave without hesitation.

    I felt like I was finally going through a honeymoon that I hadn't experienced in a long time.

    "You know.…..if we could meet again in the next life."

    “……”

    "Let's be born in a good place then, and love happily."

    When it was time to die, I came to believe in life after not thinking about it normally.

    Isn't life like a journey anyway? The same was true of man's fate.

    So I thought maybe someday I'd be able to see him again.

    This time, we just didn't get the right timing for him, and we were not lucky. Because of the unexpected accident, we had such a painful love.

    So, let's hope for the next life.

    If you were someone who dyed your life so intensely like Sebastian, I thought we could recognize each other where we were born in the next life.

    No, I was sure.

    If human beings really have a previous life. So if we go around for a long time and meet him again, then Woo-ri (?) will surely recognize each other from the first meeting.

    Like he and I recognized each other at the first time we saw each other at the ballroom a long time ago.

    He'll come to me again, and I'll fall in love with him like fate.

    Even then, we will make our own love again.

    I raised his big hand that had been caressing me all night.


    Smiling softly, I kissed the small back of his hand.

    "I love you, Sebastian."

    “……”

    "I loved you so much."

    Let me spit it out again. The words that we checked and said countless times last night, the words that we expressed to each other all day today,

    That's what I'm saying.

    After that, I confessed again with a sad heart.

    Now the meaning of the word that I love him was certainly different from before.

    It was no longer an obsession, a desire, or a desire. It wasn't the image of me and my family, who were embarrassed because we couldn't control our crooked minds.

    I've reconciled with everything so whole, and I've also admitted.

    So I'm all set to go. This world, Sebastian, and myself.

    Sebastian was staring at me with his amber eyes all the time without a word. No more hate and resentment, with the eyes shaking with the countless emotions that replaced it.

    How long has it been? His eyes bent brightly.

    "Be careful, Eileen."

    “……”

    "As you say, let's meet again in the next life. at that time I'll make sure you're not late."

    The sorrow of being the last was, after all, a mass of Sebastian's eyes, as if it could not be hidden, but nevertheless he smiled as brightly as he could at me.

    As if he wants to let me go with a smile at the last moment. Like he doesn’t want to cry.

    "I love you, Eileen."

    “……”

    He kissed me for the last time. I accepted him with a burst of laughter.

    Feeling his affectionate lips, his hand patting my cheek, his snorting affectionately, thinking, listening to his confession echoing through my ears.

    That's enough, that's enough.

    I don't have any regrets about my life as Eileen Lowell anymore.

    I think I can accept death without looking back.

    It was Sebastian Hughes who stood by me at the last minute....I'm so glad.

    I hugged him without a word. My head is spinning. I felt a rush of sleep.

    Stuck tightly in his arms until the last moment, I slowly closed my eyes.

    ......death was coming.

    ***

    “……”

    Sebastian looked still at the asleep Aileen.

    Eileen's eyes closed in her arms until the very end. At the last moment, closing her eyes, there was a drop of tears in her eyes. I could feel my breath coming out when I put my hand near her nose.

    ......and again. As he recited it in small words, Sebastian wiped it kindly.

    Still, Eileen is breathing.

    But soon, the side effects of sorcery will devour even her faint breath.

    Sebastian's eyes glanced over her face. I could see the slim face of the air that seemed to dissipate.

    Eileen, who feels like she's going to fall down if she hits it right away.

    But she was actually a beautiful woman with a dark complexion.

    His eyebrows were thick, his nose was high, and his lips were small but thick. As if to prove one's noble birth, as if one were born with the dignity of a peacock on one'

    These little lips used to be rigidly closed when I saw them.

    My dark eyebrows used to stand fierce and give out a sharp voice as if they were not to approach me.

    Sebastian laughed as he recalled what he had seen over the past time.

    ......I wish I had realized how I felt about her a little more quickly.

    If I had done that, I would have seen more of the corners of my mouth that curled my eyes towards me and raised my eyebrows that went down gently down.

    ...as well, I wish I'd realized how I felt about her a little more quickly.

    If she was a little less sick. I could have laughed a little more.

    At the same time, Sebastian was satisfied. In the end, every moment he pushed her away, got angry, and confused was eventually a disbel of his love for her.

    Because last night, I checked it from her all night.

    her passion for herself The sound of breathing that was disturbed by oneself.

    Eileen's voice, which had been confessing that she loved him.

    At every moment of last night he felt joy. The fact that he’s in love with her.

    In the end, the fact that the two people have only loved each other.

    She wasn't the only one who felt like a dream every moment at the villa. So was he.

    Smiling, Sebastian stood up after releasing his hand holding Eileen tightly.

    Sebastian, who picked up her shirt, began to dress her. Close the buttons carefully on each dress and tidy up your clothes. He arranged the bed which had been disheveled from lying all day, and held her in his arms and laid her face in the middle of the bed.

    He wiped out all traces of the dreamy night, filled with joy.

    Finally, Sebastian cleaned up her long black straight hair.

    Then a light kiss on her forehead as she fell asleep.

    Looking at her until the last minute, he closed the door and left the room.

    Passed through a two-story canopy that looked at the beautiful scenery of the sea with her. She passed the corridor where he held Eileen tightly, who was struggling to live.

    As I came down the stairs, I saw the place where I ate with Eileen. He passed the table where the leftovers and wine glasses were all laid out.

    When I opened the front door of the villa, I saw carriages and horses in the dark.

    And I could see the people who were waiting for me. Usher and Sophie, an aide to Eileen.

    Eileen got here in time for her collapse.

    "Your Royal Highness, Prince of Wales."

    As I approached him politely and greeted him, Usher looked at him.

    What about Eileen?

    "Her Excellency has gone into the final fainting. She’s sleeping in a bunk bed."

    Sebastian replied, bowing politely.

    Soon the atmosphere became heavy. As dark as his son-in-law. (?)

    Usher breathed a mixed sigh, and Sophie, too, had somber eyes.

    Sebastian said in a loud voice, as if to break the ice.

    "Let's go talk for now."

    "......yes, keep an eye on Eileen."

    When Usher, who nodded, ordered, the royal knights stood around the villa.

    Some entered the villa and began escorting around Eileen, who was asleep on the second floor.

    The three men got on the wagon and started heading for somewhere.

    Their plan for her is not over yet.

    I only read the first 3 chapters and skipped to this chapter, so I have no idea what is happening or if she’ll get revived because the novel is still ongoing.

    This is just a theory but maybe ML did had some deep relationship with mistress and did stuff. To help justify his actions, author might have made FL so bad and cruel that readers actually started hating her along with whole story :hmm: Cause the story is still ongoing but rating isn't getting any better. To be honest, I can't bear when FL loves ML, married to him and he finds someone else. The only situation I looked over it was 'Lady to Queen'

    I would happily read it if ML was someone else or someone can confirm if he did do it with mistress or not :blobunamused: We need much stronger reader.

    The other woman wasn’t the ML’s mistress. She was the person he loved in the beginning. But when the female lead met him, she fell in love with him at first sight and wanted to marry him. But the ML refused to marry the female lead, saying he already had someone he loved. So the female lead felt desperate and kidnapped the woman the ML loved. So the ML came and said he will marry the female lead if she let his lover go. So the female lead was the one that destroyed their love in the beginning. He didn’t cheat on her from the start

    And after 5 years of marriage he still didn’t love her, he just stayed married obediently to the female lead for his lover’s sake. He was afraid the female lead would kill his lover too. But the female lead realized that this loveless marriage will never work and he will never give her his heart. All he had was hatred and resentment towards her because she destroyed his family, his parents committed suicide, and kidnapped his lover in order to have him.

    Oh my gosh, also about his family being destroyed, was it really her cause as far as the chapters I've read, it says that it was her father who destroyed his family.
