Can't you all just leave me alone?

Let's erase his memory and run. “Your Excellency asked me to convey a message ‘I let you have my neck and body, but you threw it all away and ran.'” What are you saying? Does he remember? Later, there was a strange declaration of war after we met. “Don't avoid me and let's continue to meet. Also, when you need blood, come find me.” Duke, would you please stay away from me? It's hard to breathe because of your taste.
