Dante, who used to answer well, remained silent for a long time.
He just asked if the family was in harmony. In the end, the two could neither deny nor affirm.
‘If he could at least explain.’
No, the explanation won’t erase the wound Charlize would have already received.
Kahu felt a chill in the back of his neck.
‘Ronan knows nothing about Charlize.’
Surprisingly. He should have guessed when he heard from Akan earlier that there was no teacher who taught Charlize.
However, there was no outcome at all.
But one thing he knew for sure.
The reason why Ronan didn’t show any signs of Charlize’s disappearance before the regression was because they were ‘indifferent’.
‘However, even so.’
What does this situation of Charlize have to do with placing a tyrant on the throne?
Kahu felt a deep-rooted hatred for the empire from Charlize. But Ronan doesn’t know anything about this.
Kahu bit his lips.
Akan had a blank face. Dante clenched his fist hard with the blood flowing.
“Thank you for your time.”
After a long wait, there was only silence.
Deciding that further conversation was meaningless, Kahu stood up.
It’s Ronan who can’t even answer the simple answer that their family was in harmony.
Akan and Dante were hardened with completely shocked faces, but Kahu didn’t want to appease them.
The seeds they sow will be reaped by themselves.
Kahu bowed and stepped out of the drawing-room.
Until he closed the door, Ronan’s two brothers did not budge.
A few days later, a brief meeting led by the emperor was held.
Unlike formal meetings, the number of people attending the brief meeting was small. It was because it was not an agenda that needed to be discussed.
However, Kahu was anxious to somehow make contact with Charlize. Even though he didn’t have to go, he attended as soon as he heard the schedule.
‘Because I declared that I was going to dig it.’
Charlize only gave one glance to Kahu, who was sitting in the meeting room. There was no sign of dislike.
The brief meeting tended to end quickly. As it was a meeting where small and simple decisions were made repeatedly.
The nobleman looked at Dylan and said.
“Recently, there was a report from a scout that the wizards of the magic tower were seen near the underworld. If Your Majesty permits, we would like to finish this case by assigning Shadow.”
Charlize, who was reviewing the documents, paused for a moment.
Charlize’s concentration was revived at the word ‘Magic Tower’.
The wizards of the magic tower.
‘The one that made Kiera.’
The evil itself.
Charlize closed her eyes with rare cold flames for a while and then opened her mouth.
“Your Majesty, I’ll go.”
Because it was a trivial matter, Dylan looked at Charlize in surprise for a moment.
It wasn’t until Charlize interfered.
But Charlize already knew what would come out of Dylan’s mouth.
“…I allow it.”
Sure enough, Dylan accepted.
Kahu, who was still, looked at Charlize and Dylan alternately. Kahu soon realized the opportunity and stepped forward.
“I will go with the grandmaster.”
For a moment, Charlize’s eyes met his.
Perhaps because it was the second time that he had offered to help Charlize at the meeting, Charlize looked indifferent.
Dylan became silent, but this time neither Kahu nor Dylan cared.
‘All the keys are held by Charlize.’
There was no time to care about Dylan.
Charlize accepted, and the meeting quickly moved on to the next issue.
The brief meeting was soon over.
There was no need to delay, so Charlize left the Imperial City immediately.
Kahu followed in Charlize’s footsteps.
Since they had wiped out the underworld together once, the atmosphere was natural even without much conversation.
At one point, Charlize, who was heading to the underworld, stopped.
Kahu noted Charlize’s every move.
“What are you trying to do?”
“I just want to get some information.”
Charlize, who answered calmly, took something out of her arms.
It was a silver flute as small as a finger.
Leaving a puzzled Kahu, Charlize blew a very small flute.
A slow burst rips the air.
There was no change, so Kahu looked around. But Charlize’s gaze was fixed on one place.
Kahu followed Charlize’s gaze. It was definitely the back alley where no one was there.
Someone showed up.
It was Lucy.
From head to toe, she was dressed in black and had a curvy body.
Kahu also calmed his shocked heart. He could roughly recognize her. Because Lucy was famous for being a crazy information guild leader.
Lucy was also the leader of the assassination guild, but that was not well known.
Looking around, Lucy gently lowered her sharp cat’s eyes as she made eye contact with Charlize.
It was such a quick change that only Kahu noticed.
“Char, Charlize honey…?”
Charlize bobbed her hand. Lucy approached with a clumsy smile.
“Why are the wizards of the magic tower wandering around in the underworld?”
“I know, but… Honey…”
Kahu was surprised to see Charlize talking down to Lucy without hesitation.
It was Lucy who had a unique personality and retaliated if someone doesn’t behave well, even if he’s the client.
However, Lucy went beyond struggling in front of Charlize and acted cute pretending to be fragile.
“Are you asking such a sudden question without even saying hello? Besides, it’s high-quality information…”
If she sells the information, she will get thousands of gold. But Charlize said with a natural face.
“I’m going to pay off my debt.”
“That’s right, keeping them alive is paying off their debts…”
Lucy murmured faintly.
Lucy smiled innocently at Charlize’s eyes and blew out the information.
“It’s because of the Alperier. I almost died trying to figure this out. I thought I’d really die next time, so I tried to stay out of it.”
When Charlize was quiet, as if not grudging, Lucy added in a hurry.
“The magic tower is looking for the Alperier around here.”
Charlize asked back indifferently.
“Isn’t the Alperier a secret organization that studies Ehyrit?”
“I don’t know. It’s dangerous, so I want to stay out of it…”
Lucy gulped down while looking around.
If she really could, Lucy didn’t want to get involved with them.
She was reluctant to even reveal their presence out of her mouth.
But the reason she told her was that she was more afraid of Charlize, who was closer than the magic tower or the Alperier in the distance.
Kahu, who was watching, wondered about Charlize’s true identity.
Such a famous person is terrified of Charlize.
Lucy glanced at Kahu. She also served as an information guild, but of course, Lucy recognized Kahu, but Charlize was still a priority.
Kahu was quiet.
Can she go now?
At that moment, she was trembling in fear that Charlize would ask for more information or even take the lead to the place where the magic tower was.
Lucy felt like she had met great fortune. She was very happy, but she tried hard to hold it down.
“Honey, you’re not sick, are you? Health is the most valuable thing in the world! You know that, right?”
When she pretended to be worried about Charlize, Lucy’s voice was full of joy.
Charlize turned away without answering back.
Kahu looked at Lucy, who was excited, then followed Charlize closely again.
Lucy’s reaction seemed very dangerous.
Charlize’s eyes narrowed slightly. Suddenly, Lucy disappeared from the alley.
Charlize turned around and glanced up at Kahu, saying.
“I’ll go alone, young duke.”
“Didn’t you hear that? Lucy’s a woman who’s not afraid of anything but me.”
Kahu’s expression became very strange.
Maybe it’s because he’s not familiar with the way Charlize just looked. Suddenly Charlize looked different.
‘She wants me to step back because it’s dangerous.’
Clearly, Kahu had lower skills than Charlize, but he still had pride.
He was a Master after all.
“… From the moment I said I was going to dig up the grandmaster, I was prepared to do anything.”
Kahu bowed his head to Charlize. Moment by moment, every time their eyes met, strangely the inside of his neck was numb.
He knows beauty is part of Charlize. Because Charlize’s appearance was unrealistically outstanding.
“If that’s the case.”
Charlize quietly read Kahu for a moment, then went back on the road. It was permission.
‘It’s like I’m out of breath.’
Charlize moved right away. The only clue was ‘near the underworld’, but Charlize quickly searched for it. There was a strange conviction in the steps of the grandmaster.
Kahu doesn’t know. With the subtle aroma of Ehyrit, it was relatively easy to trace.
However, Kahu realized the difference in skill with Charlize again.
‘There’s no way she didn’t hear the news that I suddenly visited the Grand Duchy Ronan.’
For Kahu, work was an excuse from the beginning.
It’s an attempt to get involved with Charlize privately.
But Charlize didn’t even bring up Ronan. She didn’t even ask why he went to see Ronan.
Kahu also wanted to take the opportunity to ask if she was the winner of the swordsmanship competition, ‘Liz’. But it was a relentless movement without a moment to talk.
Kahu’s breath hit the tip of his chin. Charlize, on the other hand, was too peaceful.
‘She’s a person, right?’
By the time Kahu thought about it,
Charlize finally found the magic tower of the wizard. It was too fast and accurate.
The magic tower’s signature gray cape catches the eye.
Kahu is hardened.
After putting mana around them like a shield, Charlize pushed Kahu backward.
Kahu paid attention to Charlize’s eyes. Charlize’s eyes were supposed to be peaceful. But something was off.
Deep down in that rational energy. It was threatening.
It was terrifying and intense energy that was seriously trying to kill even the magic tower. Persistent as if trying to destroy the empire.
Suddenly, a conversation leaked from the mouths of the wizards.
“Did the Kiera project fail again?”
“Yeah, I knew it wouldn’t be easy.”
“After all, we should have taken over the Imperial Family….”
“Because we need their capital strength.”
Charlize’s mood was noticeably colder.
“You must never give up.”
“The Kiera project will go ahead.”
Kahu had goosebumps all over his body for a moment.
Unless he heard it wrong. Obviously, that’s what the wizards were saying.
The magic sword ‘Kiera’ should have been owned by the Emperor by now.
Kahu doesn’t know the details, but after Charlize Ronan disappeared, an imperial sword called ‘Kiera’ appeared. It’s impossible for a person to become a sword, even if he goes over it.
‘…The possibility that Charlize and Kiera were involved.’
The moment he tries to think more deeply,
Kahu felt the tip of the sword hanging down his neck.
As if she had no intention of hiding the threat, blood was slowly dripping out of it.
Kahu realized that the thick threatening look was directed at him, and he stiffened. Before he knew it, his vital point was already in Charlize’s hands.
A sharp sword shining in silver.
The look on Charlize’s face, which was aimed at Kahu’s neck, was cold.
