This relationship is never going to work. How could she cheat on me with another man? She acts like I don't know.
Who the heck is that
What do you want and how do you know my name?!
YOU UNLOYAL THOT!
Illiev is a young man who is going to be drafted into the war and currently ponders about what will happen tomorrow (that is when he is sent off). His wife Ivanova is left at home after a huge argument (hence as to why he is outside). He feels its better to be sent away than to see her face again.
After leaving the shore he was running back home when he spotted someone else in the secluded area. It was the devil. Standing there from afar. He called Illiev forth and offered him 3 wishes. To convince him to sell his soul the devil brought up his horrible wife. The decision was made.
DETHRONE YOURSELF! YOU'RE THE DEVIL IN FLESH!
Illiev had wished to be removed from war and wanted the highest position there was available in the land. To get this wish he had to sacrifice his wife and take her fresh blood as an offering to Satan himself. Once he did this he returned to the forest where he met the devil and he was pleased.
* No she can't see the devil *
Over time after getting everything he could ever want and even murdering the man his ex-wife slept with. Nothing could satisfy his greed and anger. Now he even wanted his current woman banished. The Devil reminded him that he had one more wish left.
Illiev was going mad and he couldn't take the pain of everyone he had murdered. This was the devil's plan all along. Not only was Illiev a bad king the people turned on him. His last wish wasn't what the devil was expecting....
Suprisingly Illiev NEVER used the wish but instead hanged himself in his dining room. The devil got even more than he asked for.
