What I read:
Oneshot: Doku no Musume to Sekigan no Tsurugi (The Poisoned Girl and the One-Eyed Swordsman)
(Summary from Twitter)
Basically a skilled young general is escorting a young lady with poison-counteracting blood to his King. She’s timid and afraid of strangers because she’s been targeted all her life. He’s protecting her because she’s the last of her kind.
Azeria used to suffer through the poisoning with her parents, but now they are dead. The young General, Levy Otis, seeing her suffer
holds her hand now as she poisons herself in preparation to save the King.
A messenger comes and tells them that they must hurry to castle to save the king. Levy suspects an assassin infiltrated the king’s court.
When they arrive, everyone is dying from poisoning. Instead of pricking her finger, she stabs herself so there will be enough blood for all.
It turns out that the bad guy is not an assassin, but rather a guy who wants to capture Azeria to sell her for lots of money.
Levy and the baddie fight and Levy ends up cutting the guy with his own poisoned sword.
town’s well (and burned and blinded himself with the poison). Her family came through and saved the town. She, then 5, saved him
and told him that he must not die. It was the he felt he had a reason to live, so he trained and became a general so he could someday
protect her (and make more blood healer babies). “I am completely yours”.
He proposes marriage to her. The end.
