At Dylan’s courtship, Charlize didn’t give much thought.
Even if it’s a courtship. Dylan wasn’t in a big hurry. It was a slow change as if clothes were wet with drizzle.
As usual, Charlize taught Dylan, ate together, and talked.
Of course, that wasn’t all.
“Will you spare me some time, Master?”
“Of course, Your Majesty.”
Dylan wanted to share more of his private time, and he wanted to know more of Charlize’s feelings.
When she came to her senses, she realized that Dylan was the only one she talked to all day.
Surely Charlize turned to Dylan. When he suggested something, she accepted it.
“I’ve prepared something special today.”
“What is it?”
“You’ll find out when you get there.”
Charlize looked at Dylan.
“Can you hold my hand?”
Charlize looked up at Dylan and grabbed his hand. Dylan had no hesitation since he confessed his love.
He proudly escorted Charlize on the move. As Dylan who made the oath of a knight to Lady, it wasn’t against the rules.
The hands held together were bare skin. Spring hasn’t come yet, but there were no gloves between the entangled hands.
It was warm with warmth. Dylan smiled.
“I hope Master will be happy with it.”
Because when Dylan said that, Charlize was always satisfied. She was looking forward to it.
Dylan led the way to the Cream Room of the Imperial Palace. The knights have politely set examples.
Charlize was soon surprised.
He said he had prepared something special, and it was a game that Charlize played when she was young.
The only thing that has changed is that it has become more realistic and luxurious? As she walked inside, there was a huge game board.
The commoners called it a ‘Land-winning game’, but the nobles called it ‘Pavane’s game’.
She felt this while she was eating ‘Purene’ last time. Perhaps Dylan had researched everything about Charlize.
‘When I was young and bored, I played this alone. I don’t have anyone to play with, even if I need an opponent.’
Sometimes Dante was Charlize’s playmate. Actually, it wasn’t fun.
Because Charlize had to hide her true skills so that Dante wouldn’t lose interest.
‘Maybe Dante doesn’t even remember.’
Unlike Charlize, Dante had many playmates.
What Charlize did as soon as she returned was to fire the rude maids.
If Dylan had recruited one of them, the story of Charlize’s childhood would have been easy to figure out.
‘Still, it’s Dylan.’
Kahu visited Ronan himself and asked them about her, but he couldn’t find anything. She scattered the fired maids to such an extent that he couldn’t even track them down, but Dylan looked different.
“I’m glad, Your Majesty. I think it will be fun.”
“That’s a relief, but I’ve changed the rules a little bit to increase the level of immersion.”
Charlize paid attention to Dylan. He said.
“Originally, the purpose of the game was to conquer each other’s territories with maps of their territories.”
The game board spread wide on the table did not contain only the empire.
“The game we are going to play today is for countries across the continent.”
Charlize’s concentration came alive.
It would have been interesting to follow the rules she used to play when she was young. For the continent? It was a fresh idea.
Soon the two sat at the table. The game started without delay.
It was a game of strategic warfare using many armies and then conquering countries one by one by winning victory. The board was too big for a game.
When the two transcendent beings started the game, the tension lingered in an instant.
Kiera, who united all the continents and ruled them under her feet.
And the emperor, the genius of the century.
Charlize immersed herself in the game. It was terribly fun to compete against the genius Dylan.
She never took her childhood shortcomings seriously, but as the game went on, she felt something was being filled.
It feels like a missing piece of a puzzle put together. The excitement grew. All the nerves in the back of the neck were at a standstill.
This was, like, excitement. Emotional delight that she has rarely felt in her life.
“Kingdom Nabilta? I don’t think it’s a wise choice, Your Majesty.”
“If the borders are so close to the three countries that even Nabilta is missed, there’s no way I’m going to lose, Master.”
‘He’s a genius.’
No matter how modest he spoke, Charlize recognized Dylan’s worth.
But she was caught off guard.
Because she didn’t know if he was going to attack Nabilta. Naturally, she thought he would attack the Alti Kingdom in front of him, who was struggling due to a lack of military funds.
“You conquered Nabilta with only three armies…”
“Since Master takes over the empire, there is no momentum.”
As he said, Charlize almost conquered an empire while he was hitting Nabilta.
Charlize stuck out her tongue and licked her lower lip. Dylan’s eyes while watching became dangerous, but it was an instant.
Was the movement of military funds too disadvantageous? But this was the best.
‘Now, if the empire only destroys the imperial palace, everything will be over.’
Charlize agonized over the next number, thinking about it.
Meanwhile, Shadow, who was watching them in the dark, was stunned.
‘It’s a completely different world.’
Shadow was overwhelmed.
They couldn’t keep up with the conversation between the two, nor could they understand the information and strategies pouring in. Sometimes when Dylan says something, Charlize laughs as if it’s funny. They didn’t even know what was funny.
“Your Majesty was such a fun person.”
“I’m glad you’re enjoying it, so I’m in the mood for it too.”
The emperor and the grandmaster were in a friendly atmosphere.
Even when they fight fiercely and reach a point where the army they led is annihilated.
Although they felt the sharpness of the sword as if it had been sharpened. The joy of high beings that they met a proper competitor too.
It was overflowing.
Excited after a long time, Charlize played hard. The game was nip and tuck.
On good terms, if Charlize wins one game, Dylan wins another. They bumped into each other.
“It was a good game.”
“…Me too, Your Majesty.”
The final result was 3 wins and 2 losses from 5 matches.
Charlize had a higher win, but she couldn’t help but admire him.
Kiera really conquered the continent, and has 400 years of experience. But Dylan has been living only 20 years.
The brain fight was Dylan’s field. Dylan lost to others for the first time, but he was just proud because Charlize was a winning genius. Charlize was surprised, too.
She already knew that she was a genius, but she realized it again.
“There will be no one on this continent who can withstand Master.”
Charlize smiled happily at Dylan’s acknowledgment. It felt like a genuine soul exchange.
There were all kinds of novel strategies that had never been recorded in history. Charlize liked the creativity that seemed to squeeze out the limits.
Took a breath. How long has it been since she felt exhausted?
“I understand why people are looking for a pair.”
“It feels like everything has been washed away, and immediately after the feeling of fullness fills up. They seem to be looking for it.”
The emperor was an attractive man.
His smile, with his eyes closed, did not leave her mind for a long time after that.
His fingers were long as he stroked the game’s paw. But he had a slightly different impression from the way he played the piano.
‘It was the most impressive.’
Dylan’s courtship continued that way. He naturally aroused Charlize’s interest, deepening his favor.
The emperor was a genius.
He seemed to know what Charlize liked by intuition. From head to toe, Charlize showed her presence only with her favorite elements.
Now Charlize didn’t mind Dylan covering her waist.
“Master, please sit this way.”
It was an award ceremony.
From where all the nobles stood up, Dylan politely guided Charlize.
Charlize’s seat was as high as the emperor’s.
It’s a little far from the podium, a place where you can be free.
Charlize followed Dylan. Dylan still fixed his eyes only on Charlize.
Everyone bowed their heads.
The eyes of many nobles poured on Charlize. Charlize didn’t care because attention is natural anyway.
Charlize and Dylan were immersed in their world and had a conversation. But who dares to point it out? It was the emperor and the grandmaster higher than the sky.
“Count Leight, come forward and receive your plaque.”
The awards ceremony was held on its own.
Leight’s face brightened at the Chancellor’s call. He was awarded a plaque for the fact that he paid her taxes faithfully.
“It was my loyalty to His Majesty. I will continue to dedicate myself with all my heart.”
Dylan only showed interest in Charlize, whether mentioned or not in his acceptance speech.
Since then, those who followed the emperor’s closest aides have mostly received awards. They were honored, pledging eternal allegiance to Dylan.
“Young duke of Delmon, come forward and receive your plaque.”
When Kahu was called, there was silence for a moment as if a mouse had died.
Kahu came forward with a bit of a firm bite on his lips.
Kahu’s fingertips trembled slightly as he stepped down after receiving the award, but no one cared about the young duke.
The nobles kept glancing at their stomachs.
The faces of the nobles, who had previously advocated the marriage of Kahu and Charlize, were particularly pale. What did they say without noticing His Majesty’s feelings?
Dylan’s eyes looking at Charlize were brimming with vivid emotions.
He said he was courting her openly, but when they witnessed it with their own eyes, they closed their mouths.
Dylan just kissed the tip of Charlize’s hair.
It felt like they were peeking at a scene that they shouldn’t have seen. So intimate and private. The nobles rushed to lay their eyes down.
An expression of lofty reverence. It seemed that no faithful master and disciple could defeat Dylan with blind faith.
Charlize was unrealistically beautiful.
In the cold winter, the dress that Charlize was wearing curled up a little. Her calves were visible over her ankles.
Dylan took off his coat and covered it, smiling at Charlize.
Naturally covered her skin.
It was a secret and seductive atmosphere.
Meanwhile, the young noble masters who have sent Charlize a letter of marriage, but have not yet received a reply. They glanced at Charlize, unable to recover from their lingering regret. But the next moment,
Dylan turned his eyes and looked down at the young noble masters silently.
All the young noble masters flinched even though they didn’t even commit a crime. Just one cool look in his eyes.
Dylan overwhelmed everyone.
As if only the emperor Dylan was worthy to stand by Charlize’s side.
His presence that was instantly revealed to the young noble masters was that of a wild beast claiming territory. If you don’t want to die, you have to step back.
“Everything according to Master’s will.”
But when Charlize saw Dylan, the wild beast’s instinct collapsed like a mirage.
Dylan was delighted when Charlize smiled.
The tyrant’s gentle and docile attitude was reserved only for Charlize.
