He was a commoner with no family name. He graduated from the Knights Academy with excellent grades, but he became a knight of the monstrous crown prince, the position which everyone was reluctant to do.
Everyone laughed at Edon, who was assigned to the job. But Edon liked his young master.
He also swore to himself that he would do anything for this boy.
“Edon, take off your shirt.”
However, this current order was rather absurd.
“….Yes, Your Highness.”
I took off my shirt because I wasn’t a person who could say no to him.
Blake looked at Edon’s body. His body was not as good as the emperor, but he had a fine body with his muscles firmly placed. Blake carefully touched his hard abs.
“Edon, what do we have to do to be like this?”
“Your Highness, would you like to have abs?”
Blake touched his belly. Rather than the splitting of the muscles, they were drawing a gentle curve.
Blake was not hurt by the emperor who sends him out. It was Ancia.
‘She said she never seen a man’s body before…but I’m a man too.’
He felt sullen and touched his soft belly.
“Yes. Because I have a big tummy…”
“It’s not a big tummy!” said Edon with a warm smile. When Blake heard him, his eyes glistened with hope.
“Your highness, you still have a cute ‘baby’s belly’.”
Unfortunately, his words were no consolation to Blake.
Somehow Blake was strange today. He insisted that he would not take off his clothes when taking a bath, and covered his stomach with his hands throughout the bath.
It’s a little different than being shy. I think he is upset.
Anyway, after many twists and turns, I tried to wash his body, but he kept turning to the other side.
“Your Highness, you should look straight at me.”
I grabbed him by the shoulder, turned him, and removed his hand covering his stomach. Then Blake swelled his cheeks with discontent.
I think he was upset with me, but he was so cute.
“Oh, my husband, it looks like your cheeks will burst.”
I pressed his soft cheeks. Then Blake suddenly shouted.
“It won’t burst!”
He’s cute even when he’s angry.
“You’re really cute.”
Blake’s face hardened rapidly. No matter how cute he is, I don’t think I should tease him anymore. Let’s stop here.
“Your Majesty, the cauldron is coming tomorrow. I’ll cook a lot of delicious food for you.”
“I don’t want it.”
“You’ll be surprised, the food will taste so delicious.”
“I’m not going to eat anymore.”
“Why? Are you feeling sick?”
Does he have a stomachache? He quickly hid his belly in his hand and he looked worried.
Is it the sentence engraved on his body again?
Blake murmured in a sullen voice.
“I don’t have a man’s body yet..”
“I’ll exercise too!”
Oh, I realized why Blake was angry.
“I, I’m sorry. It’s my first time seeing a man’s body.”
What I said to the emperor must have bothered you. I smiled brightly.
“I’m sorry. My husband is a man, too, but I forgot for a moment.”
“How can I completely slip out of your mind!”
I thought it’d be okay if I apologized, but Blake was even more furious.
“I’m gonna have abs, too! I’m not even going to eat!”
“Don’t do that. I like you as you are now.”
I rubbed his round belly.
“It’s very cute…”
“It’s not a baby’s belly!”
Blake cut me off and shouted.
How did you know I was going to say “baby‘s belly”? Do you have a mind reading skills?
When I looked at him in amazement, Blake hurried off to dry himself and ran to his bed.
“Your Highness, I haven’t cleaned it yet, you’ll be dirty again then.”
“I don’t care.”
Blake dropped his head.
Ahh….I really don’t think I should tease you more.
I approached him to the bed and sat next to him and I blow a raspberry to Blake’s belly.
Blake eyes widened as if his eyes are bulging out.
“Ki,kiss kiss?! Did you kiss it?”
Blake’s face turned red.
I think I’ll be upset again. I’ll have to let you know the right facts.
“This is called blowing a raspberry.”
I tried doing it again.
“Look at this, do you hear the fart?”
Somehow he looks disappointed. Doesn’t kids like this kind of joke? Isn’t he eight?
Anyway, I couldn’t let him be upset again.
I kept blowing a raspberry to his stomach. Thankfully, Blake started laughing.
“Hahaha! It tickles.Ancia, don’t. It tickles!”
I stopped and hug Blake tightly.
“I like you as you are, you don’t need to change.”
“I also like Ancia the best, too.”
“I’m happiest when you enjoy my cooking. So you have to eat a lot tomorrow, okay?”
“….I need to exercise.”
“You can eat and then exercise. You said you’d like to be taller than me.”
“I will be taller!”
“You should eat a lot then.”
“Okay. I’ll eat a lot!”
Blake nodded. I felt better when I saw his smile, forgetting that he was upset.
Emperor Tenstheon recalled the image of Blake he had seen today.
My son has changed a lot. He finally stretched out his crouched body, and held his companion’s hand firmly.
His empty eyes sparkled brilliantly as if he had retain his emotions, and his cheeks were plump and lively, making his face looks healthy.
Tenstheon looked back at the report on the Crown Prince made by his aide. The report was full of compliments for Crown Princess, unlike the usual cold and picky Collin.
When Tenstheon called his name, a boy appeared. It was a boy with dark hair, dark eyes, and black clothes.
His name was ‘Eunhan.’
‘Eunhan’ was a boy from the great eastern empire ‘Chang’.
Tenstheon rescued the wounded and bitter Eunhan, took the child who refused to go out into the world and made him into his own shadow.
He entrusted Eunhan with the things the emperor could not officially do, most of them were orders about Blake.
He also got help from Eunhan when he was looking for food ingredients in the East for Blake.
“Please give me your command.”
“Did the Crown Prince and the Crown Princess return safely?”
“Yes, Your Majesty. They took a bath and just fell asleep.”
The Goddess of Light was angry at the betrayal of Emperor Philip, and cursed his descendants. However, even though he hated Philip, he can’t completely reap the power of the light.
When the emperor uses the power of light, pain is transmitted to the ‘successor of the curse’. The curse spreads quickly and enroached the body. In severe cases, the boy could have died.
Many emperors in the past used the power of light freely, ignoring the pain that the heir to the curse would suffer, but Tenstheon could not do so.
Tenstheon has not used the power of light even once. But there was an inevitable mission as the emperor of the empire.
In the valley of chaos at the west end, there was a gate leading to the demon world, and it was called ‘the gate of darkness’.
On the day when the “Dark Door” is fully opened, it is said that the empire will fall into ruin.
The only thing that could close the dark door was the ‘power of light’. Therefore, the emperor of the empire was responsible for sealing the dark gate and borrow the power of the goddess.
But Tenstheon didn’t want to seal the dark door. When he heard that the door had begun to open, he wanted to turn away.
If Tenstheon used the power of light to seal the Dark Door, Blake would surely suffer terrible pain.
But he was an emperor before a father. He couldn’t risk it only to protect his son.
The emperor orders Eunhan to protecy Blake, and soon left for the valley of chaos. As soon as he sealed the door, He came home running.
He entered the palace, worrying about how much more the curse had spread, and how much pain the child had suffered. So he search for Eunhan right away.
“He’s been well.”
“Didn’t it hurt him?”
“No, it was peaceful, the curse didn’t spread either.”
Eunhan handed over the video to the emperor. Blake in the video was smiling brightly. And there was Ancia next to him.
Tenstheon used a powerful force of light to seal the dark door. But Blake wasn’t in pain, and the curse didn’t spread further.
What the hell is going on here? Is this a sign that the curse will be lifted?
But I could just hope so. In some cases, the effects of using the power of light may appear late.
“Brown Hamel, the Crown Prince’s chief servant, has been sent to prison.”
Eunhan began to report on the Crown Princess acts for the whole month.
