Duke’s Dark Lady Chapter 42 is dark enough in its own way, with Juwell meeting Flanders and cursing his unborn child. Juwell’s loathing for Flanders and his family previously ran deep, and rightfully so; he was abused and abused until he was killed for Flanders’ own benefit. Juwell tried to pretend that he was fine with Flanders and treated him fairly well, but his true feelings were filled with hatred and contempt. Flanders wants Juwell to stay close to him and watch over him, possibly because of his own insecurities.
Juwell was not bothered by Flanders’ actions. It seemed he almost expected it. Flanders has incomplete divine power, which he obtained by making a deal with the devil. His insecurity is even more evident when he is confronted by a truly talented Saint who doesn’t have to resort to underhanded methods to gain his powers. Flanders also insisted on meeting the Knight Juwell favored, which made him even more suspicious. Despite all that, Juwell is not fazed, having previously lived his life as a poor Estella.

The Duke’s Dark Lady: Chapter 42 recap
In the previous chapter of The Duke’s Dark Lady, Juwell crosses paths with the Duchess Marriot and Saintess Flanders, people who had abused him while he was living as Estella. Juwell asked Rishak to go and have a private meeting with the Duchess Marriot, where he ended up humiliating her. Juwell told Marriot to lick the parfait he dropped on the floor, which actually fell to the floor but was arrogantly stopped by Juwell. Later, Juwell meets Saintess Flanders, who apologizes to Flanders for only showing her bad things.
Flanders told Juwell that as the Emerald of Blessing, he just hoped things would get better as soon as possible. They chatted briefly, and Flanders asked Juwell if he intended to return to the temple. Flanders tried to flatter Juwell by saying that his activities as a Saint had impressed him greatly, but Juwell caught on. It was simply an attempt by Flanders to keep Juwell, the newly revered Saintess, under control. Juwell told Flanders that he had no intention of returning to the temple.
Juwell also tells Flanders that people have “real” Saints like him unlike Juwell, which is a lie because Flanders gained powers after sacrificing Estella to the Devil. Juwell asks Flanders about his unborn child, and he tells Juwell that he wants to name his child Estella after his loving sister. Juwell is angry at the thought and has flashbacks of the time he was being tortured by Flanders. Juwell asked Flanders if he could bless his child and began to say the blessing, but deep inside, he wished great tribulations would befall Flanders’ unborn child.
