But that wasn’t easy either. If a person is chosen, they must sign a contract in the palace and accept the dragon. It is said that if the chosen one refuses and fails to develop his or her strength, it will harm his or her body. Eunhan is not an exception.
“I was often sick because I couldn’t sign the contract. My mother used to cook every day for me.”
Eunhan calmly explained the situation. The more he spoke, the calmer his voice became.
“But I was eventually discovered. My father was furious and ordered to kill me and my mom. Eventually, my mom died and only me, the seed of misfortune, escaped.”
“Eunhan, it’s not your fault.”
“I expected you’d say so, Your Highness.”
He smiled bitterly. He’s still blaming himself.
“Then why did Baekhan come to see you?”
“Baekhan was chosen by the white dragon shortly after I left.”
He told me his story with Baekhan.
“The white dragon is the most sacred dragon. A person who is chosen by the White Dragon is respected by all. He’s the only one who has the authority to choose the emperor.”
Baekhan said he would choose Eunhan as his master. And he asked him to be the emperor of Chang.
“Then do you want to be an emperor?”
“No, I promised to be loyal to Tenstheon only.”
He shook his head firmly.
“But Baekhan chose you.”
He came all the way here for his brother, whom he used to be close to as a child. Although he tried to attack me, I don’t think he’s a bad kid.
“How did he find you?”
In the original story, Baehan didn’t appear. The Chang empire couldn’t even find Eunhan. Even though now he made his existence known to the world, how did he find him so quickly?
“He said he’s been searching for a long time. He felt vaguely that I was in the West, and he felt my strength on the day I went to Tenlarn Palace.”
He used his powers repeatedly to avoid the Macul in the Tenlarn Palace. So unlike the original story, Baekhan came to visit.
“I’m sorry, it’s my fault.”
“No. This is my mistake. The previous high priests were so incompetent that they could not even recognize my powers even if they were in front of me. I didn’t know that the high priests would have changed over the years.”
“Baekhan must be very capable.”
“He is way too good….”
His expression of regret was ingrained. He’s worried about his brother. But soon he returned to his expression of indifference.
“He’s going back to the Chang sometime today, for I’ve given him a hard scolding.”
“You haven’t seen him in a long time. Are you going to send him back just like that?”
“The one who is more important than the emperor in the Chang Empire is the High Priestess. Now that Baekhan has disappeared, there must have been an uproar.”
Eunhan expression, which was calm, suddenly hardened coldly.
“Eunhan, what’s wrong?”
“I’m sorry. I’m afraid that Baekhan came after me.”
I looked around, but I couldn’t see Baekhan. Then Blake’s scream was heard upstairs.
Me and Eunhan rushed to Blake’s room.
Blake’s scream rang out loudly the moment she opened the door.
“What are you?”
Blake was lying on the floor, and Baekhan was on his waist.
“Oho, you’re an amazing man.”
What are you doing to my husband! I ran to Blake right away. And Baekhan was astonished.
“Blake, are you all right?”
He nodded his head. When a person suddenly appeared and spoke in the language he heard for the first time, he was shocked.
While I was looking at him, Eunhan yelled at Baekhan. Of course it was the language of Chang.
“Baekhan! How dare you do this!”
“I followed you, but I made a small mistake and fell here.”
“Say sorry to the Crown Prince now!”
“I won’t bow down to anyone who is not the emperor of Chang.”
“You are their guest, Baekhan!”
Eunhan shouted, but Baekhan raised his head with a proud look as if he had done nothing wrong.
I see why Collin said that.
Baekhan looked at Blake with unfocused eyes. His mysterious eyes were indescribable.
He showed interest in Blake. There was no sign of reluctance about his curse.
Come to think of it, White Dragin is said to be a sacred creature in Chang empire. Wouldn’t it be like the goddess of light in the West? Maybe he can help Blake.
“What does that mean?”
“It was mixed up.”
Said Baekhan in a light tone.
“What? What’s mixed up.”
Is it about Blake’s curse?
“Do you want to know?”
“Yes, I want to know.”
I nodded desperately. Then Baekhan opened his mouth.
“It’s a secret.”
“Baekhan, don’t be rude. Tell us everything you know!”
Eunhan scolded Baekhan, and he looked at me.
“Crown Princess of Asteric, won’t you make a deal with me?”
Despite the opposition of Blake and Eunhan, I was left alone with Baekhan.
“Tell me the terms.”
“I heard that my brother is staying here to treat the prince.”
“Yes. These days, he mainly stays here.”
“Then I’ll be here, too. I want to stay with my brother.”
I was worried about him making unreasonable demands, but it was a surprisingly easy term. If he stays at the Crown Prince’s palace, it may help Blake too.
“Okay, I’ll get your room ready.”
“Also, please persuade my brother to come back to Chang.”
He fearlessly put forward another unreasonable condition.
“That’s hard. I am not capable of that, and returning to Chang is his choice.”
“If you help me, I’ll let you know what you’re curious about.”
Why is he so confident about what I’m looking for? It was suspicious of him to say so without hesitation. However, before the spark of doubt arose, Baekhan’s lips moved leisurely.
“I’ll decipher the rest of the stone plate.”
I looked at him in ashtonishment
“Can you decrypt it? How did you know I wanted to decipher the stone plate?”
“You must have touched it because you wanted to decipher it.”
“How did you….”
How did he know that I often touched the stone plate?
“I saw you.”
Baekhan smiled leisurely and suggested the term again.
“Try to persuade my brother. If my brother will go to Chang, I will tell you about the Crown Prince and decipher the stone plate.”
“Yes, but the deal’s a secret. I don’t want to be hated by him.”
Did he realize that he’s asking too much? It’s ridiculous. But Baekhan added.
“If you told this to someone else, I wouldn’t tell you anything.”
I had Baekhan stay at the Imperial Palace.
Baekhan clearly knew something. Honestly, I felt like I wanted to grab hold of Baekhan and tell him to read the stone plate immediately but when he shuts his mouth, everything will be over.
But I couldn’t even tell the Eunhan to go back to Chang for Blake.
Ten years later, Chang will fall into great chaos. As the country is divided, the civil war reaches its peak, and the people who have been defeated in the power struggle rush to the western continent.
At this time, Richard succeeds in removing the half-brother Frank using the people of Chang.
The Chang will soon be destroyed.
I couldn’t push someone else for Blake. He is a black dragon. No matter what, the black dragon that is prophesied to destroy the country cannot be an emperor.
But I couldn’t let go of it like this.
“Baekhan, try this.”
I went into Baekhan’s room with the dumplings I made on a tray.
“It’s a dumpling. I worked hard to make it for you, Baekhan.”
I especially made the vegetable dumplings for him after hearing he couldn’t eat meat.
Isn’t food the best way to attract kittens?
