Dylan, of course, wasn’t an easy-to-read person.
However, after the funeral of the 7th concubine, Dylan had always been easy to read since he tore the wall down on Charlize.
Like a transparent window, she could read his mind just by looking at his eyes.
She doesn’t know anything.
She didn’t care about it before.
Now that she thinks about it again, there have been many times when Dylan was strange to Charlize.
‘Yes, the royal marriage that was almost certain with the young lady Remiya was canceled when he was the Crown Prince.’
It’s strange to think about it.
It doesn’t make sense, does it?
Remiya was a noble young lady who came to visit Charlize and recommended her tea decocted with snapdragon. Hot red eyes filled with ambition.
She was weak enough to give up her position as the confirmed Empress?
‘The young noble lady suddenly cried out that she loved a commoner man. And she begged me to forget about it.’
At that time, why did she forget about it so easily?
Charlize, who was recalling, soon realized.
‘That day, Dylan declared to me.’
This fall, he said he would make a rebellion.
So she forgot about it.
Since then, she has been so busy preparing for the imminent rebellion.
Charlize frowned at the lingering afterimage.
On the ball day when Dylan escorted her. Charlize danced her first dance with Kahu, not Dylan.
‘How was Dylan’s reaction?’
All of a sudden. He called her name.
And hugged her waist.
“Master, what are you thinking?”
Charlize slowly woke up from her thoughts. Dylan in reality, as she vowed in the past, had become an emperor.
The nobles bow their heads to the ground, the employees are impatient to reach the ground with their knees, and there are more knights who want to pledge allegiance to Dylan than grains of sand on the beach.
It’s because of Dylan’s thorough genius.
It was also because Charlize raised him like that.
‘If you say you love me. Shall I follow that too?’
Charlize gazed up in surprise at the sudden thought.
Dylan was looking at Charlize.
“…I’m sorry, Your Majesty. I had a lot of thoughts about Your Majesty.”
“It’s not like that. It’s the first day of class, and I might have pushed you too hard.”
Charlize learned only the position of the basic scale and the basic hand posture today.
Opposite extremes have much in common.
Since she has already taken the extreme of swordsmanship as a Saint. She was able to grow rapidly in any other field.
Charlize pretended to be a clumsy student on purpose, so Dylan looked at Charlize with an ambiguous face.
“In the next class, we will practice a simple melody.”
“Yes, Your Majesty, thank you.”
“I also had a great and fresh time.”
Dylan was polite and didn’t show any gaps. The Emperor soon stepped back.
‘It’s okay though.’
Charlize didn’t mind waiting.
Since she lived as Keira for 400 years, it was nothing in the flow of time.
‘The opportunity will come soon.’
A chance to confirm Dylan’s feelings.
If it doesn’t come, she’ll make it.
And Charlize was confident that she would never miss the chance when it came.
The conference hall where all the executives gathered.
There were all the emperor nobles. Local lords, including Duke Kenin. The Grand Duke of Ronan and the two young masters.
All the major nobles who followed Dylan gathered.
Charlize was politely invited to the meeting as the grandmaster. She didn’t show up on the first day of rebellion, but there was no reason to refuse now.
Charlize’s seat was at the upper seat.
Dylan, the emperor, was sitting on the highest throne.
“There have been border provocations from other countries recently. The atmosphere inside the empire is in disarray, so it’s time to aim for an opportunity.”
“We decided to assign troops in a haste, and the Marquis of Net has been mentioned as the right person to bring out the soldiers.”
With a calm face, Charlize heard the story of the nobles.
The Marquis of Net replied awkwardly.
“I’m sorry, but all of the soldiers I manage have recently suffered from an epidemic and are taking a vacation.”
“Then, are you saying it’s difficult?”
“I want to prove my loyalty to His Majesty, but yes.”
The Marquis of Net voiced regret. The nobles who decided on the agenda seemed to be disappointed.
At that time, the Count of Naw looked on his face and started talking.
“Sir Marquis, excuse me, but my informant said something else.”
People’s eyes were on the Count.
“The name of the disease is ‘Madra’, isn’t it? But it was said that ‘Madra’ is not an infectious disease… It’s just a matter of taking a few breaks, but you gave a group vacation?”
The Marquis of Net seemed momentarily speechless. Soon his face turned red.
“I’m telling a lie right now, Count?”
“But, didn’t you say you want to prove your loyalty to His Majesty?”
As the shout rang out in the conference hall, Dylan, who was listening silently, gestured.
No words. Just a light hand gesture as if to stop.
But that alone. The inside of the conference hall became quiet at once.
It’s been that way since Charlize was watching. Like a puppet show, the nobles talk and discuss each other. Watching Dylan’s eyes, they bowed their heads.
“What do you think, Your Majesty?”
“I’m sending out some shadows.”
Dylan’s words were law.
Everyone was surprised and opened their eyes wide, but they knew Shadow’s ability. They were convinced that there was no way to kill the enemy’s flag more clearly than this.
“That’s a wise idea, Your Majesty.”
“If it’s the ability of Shadow. It will be the quickest and easiest to destroy.”
As soon as Dylan stepped out, the atmosphere was settled.
“The next agenda is the remaining forces of the rebellion. Those who aim for the reinstatement of the deposed Emperor, are the intelligence that have formed collusion with the forces of the underworld.”
Charlize’s concentration has revived.
‘I left the underworld alone because I ruined the country.’
If the remaining forces of the rebellion have joined hands with the underworld, the story will be different.
Besides, the underworld. It was famous for being overly associated with the magic tower.
Charlize might have a clue about Keira here.
“We need someone reliable to wipe out the underworld.”
The crowd was noisy. There were full of nobles who said that they would use some swords, but no one was able to come forward easily.
It was then.
Charlize stood up from her chair and said,
“I’ll do it.”
Eyes of surprise gathered at Charlize. A stunned nobleman tried to dissuade her.
However, his words didn’t finish.
Because Charlize was more authoritative than him.
“Are you objecting to my words now?”
When Charlize asked coldly, the nobleman shut his mouth. The inside of the conference hall became very quiet. No one could contradict Charlize.
Charlize looked up at Dylan sitting in power. As soon as Dylan made eye contact with Charlize, he bowed his head.
“As Master will.”
“The underworld is a very dangerous place, Your Majesty. Of course, the grandmaster is great, but doesn’t she need a subordinate to help her?”
The nobleman, who first talked about the underworld, was sweating and panicking.
‘I don’t need any help.’
There was no reason to refuse to put subordinates on her own.
Charlize turned her head.
Then Kahu, who had not said a word until now, stood up. Charlize and Kahu’s eyes were intertwined in the air. Charlize was blanked for a moment.
Soon Kahu’s lips opened.
“I’ll volunteer, too.”
Everyone was surprised by Kahu’s words. Eliminating the remaining forces was the most important, but it was very dangerous and cumbersome.
However, the two most notable young power figures volunteered for this job.
Not long ago, Kahu was given the position of commander of the Imperial 1st Knights.
It hasn’t been long since he became the knight commander. He will be busy adapting to it.
But he volunteered to become Charlize’s subordinate?
‘What are you thinking?’
Charlize glanced at Kahu.
His blond hair was still close to brown. A soft color that reminds her of a golden retriever.
A gentle green eyes like a forest of nature captures Charlize. His friendly look remained the same.
‘Is it because we were engaged before I returning?’
She has no intention of getting involved, but the relationship keeps getting entangled.
‘He said he wouldn’t reveal unless I told him the secret first.’
Because Kahu told Charlize to rest assured. Charlize stopped her anxiety.
This is a public place. The inspector should not have intervened.
Kahu looked at Dylan. Charlize followed Kahu’s gaze and looked at Dylan.
If Dylan loves Charlize. He might be jealous of Kahu. Charlize looked closely at Dylan’s expression, but she couldn’t read any fragments of emotion from the Emperor’s face.
“If the person is the Young Duke, he’ll be reliable.”
“I am so honored, Your Majesty.”
At Dylan’s words, Kahu bent down. Kahu was polite, but somehow he had a strange attitude.
Dylan said without expression.
“I hope you will take good care of Master.”
“I will do my best, Your Majesty.”
A tacit acceptance of the Emperor.
This concludes the agenda. The meeting is still far from over.
Because it was an unexpected development, the nobles were hardened for a while, but soon came to their senses.
The next agenda came up. Charlize still pays attention to Dylan.
But no matter how much she looks up at Dylan. He is calm. He was calm and quiet, like the sea without the wind.
‘But I’d rather be glad it’s Kahu.’
He was a wise man who held his tongue. So, even if he saw Charlize’s ability, he won’t be surprised or tell anyone.
Finally, Keira’s clue can be found. She will naturally be able to uncover the secrets of Keira while eliminating the remaining forces.
Come to think of it.
‘His Majesty at that time.’
Dylan called Charlize by name at the ball. She thought maybe the reason was because of jealousy.
But Charlize didn’t think deeply. Because revenge over Keira, the magic sword, was a top priority.
Meanwhile, Charlize was looking at Kahu from afar.
He had a more serious face.
The ugly back alley where all the evil and terrible things of this world are gathered.
Charlize was with Kahu. Now they are an official partner.
They had to talk often from now on. Communication is also important for work.
“The atmosphere, it’s perfect.”
To deal with the monster.
The energy of the hidden monsters. Charlize just felt it.
“What do you mean, Grandmaster?”
Charlize looked up at the sky without answering. It’s full of dark clouds.
The weather, which seemed to rain any minute, was well-matched with the evil of the monster.
‘He said that the remaining forces who runaway didn’t know I was strong.’
Charlize’s eyes sank when she recalled the informant’s words. If so, this is. Maybe it’s the underworld’s effort to keep Kahu in check.
Kahu was also the young duke who was in his own rank as a master.
‘At least higher grade in view of the energy of the monster.’
Shortly after thinking, she saw the shadow of the monster attacking Kahu.
“Be careful, Young Duke.”
Charlize warned him gently.
At the same time as she speaks, Charlize’s sword flew behind Kahu’s back.
