Charlize slowly approached Gold.
Gold hidden in the bushes was restless and held her breath.
After lowering herself in front of Gold, Charlize spoke to her.
Charlize carefully walked through the bushes. Gold slowly opened her tightly closed eyes.
Silver eyes, different from the name.
“By any chance, one thing. May I ask?”
Charlize was going to ask her if she could smell ‘the smell of blood’ she smelled from Dylan.
‘That can’t be true.’
Of course, she knew the answer.
Dylan had nothing to do with the Kiera Project. Before her return, and now. He certainly couldn’t have been tested. It was a strange intuition.
However, Gold was a little different from last time’s defenseless appearance.
“I, I don’t know anything.”
Before Charlize could ask anything, Gold shook her head in denial.
“What do you mean you don’t know?”
What are you…
Gold closed her eyes.
And for fear of speaking by mistake, she covered her mouth with both hands.
It was quite strange.
Obviously earlier, Gold glanced at Dylan.
Although it was difficult, Charlize was not to the point of urging the child to ask.
Calling from afar, Charlize looked back.
It was Dylan.
‘It was our first date.’
Her mind has woken up.
Just as first impressions last a long time, first impressions are important. It was right to focus on Dylan. The emperor, who glanced at Gold in the bushes for a moment, looked at Charlize again.
His gaze was full of possessiveness.
“I won’t ask you. Don’t worry.”
Charlize spoke kindly to Gold first. It was then that Gold opened her eyes.
‘It’s really weird.’
Charlize got up. Gold was still in the bushes but left alone.
Charlize walked over to Dylan.
The emperor naturally extended his hand.
Now she was used to holding hands. Charlize held his hand.
But still. Her heartbeat ominously. Because she felt this question as soon as she decided to trust her intuition more. It kept getting worse and worse.
‘…I don’t think so.’
That Gold’s gaze only reached Dylan for a moment.
No, really, isn’t it?
She wanted to look back at Gold, but Dylan’s hands were warm.
“Now is the time to return to the Imperial Palace, Master.”
Whether it implies that the date is over, Dylan didn’t call Charlize by her name. Charlize also prepared courtesy for his polite attitude.
“Yes, Your Majesty.”
She bit her lips inadvertently.
The date is over.
After returning to the lilac room. The maids busily served Charlize’s bath.
Changed into a night dress, Charlize was left alone.
Not going to bed, Charlize sat in front of the mirror.
Often, when she looks at herself in the mirror as a third party like this, her thoughts deepen.
‘The date, it was great.’
It was a fresh and happy experience.
Except for the vague lingering aftertaste of the last intuition.
Charlize looked at herself in the mirror. She was unrealistically beautiful. The playfulness of a fairy who knows no limits and a sharp atmosphere like a sword that burns blue is mixed.
The moonlight outside the window swept down her white skin.
She was spaced out for a moment.
Charlize suddenly sensed something strange.
As she turned the mirror, a letter appeared behind her.
It was an Alperier pattern.
It was just like the red lion tattoo on Payne’s wrist.
Charlize’s eyes darkened.
She opened the letter.
Payne’s voice seemed to come out of its own accord.
「 I have something to tell you.
Since this letter is a summons, you can rip it when it’s okay for you. Alperier will be leaving soon, so the sooner the better.
It’s a story you might be curious about.」
The break-in didn’t make sense.
The Lilac Room is the most secure place in the Empire.
Obviously, Payne was a genius among wizards.
She was going to burn the letter right away, but Charlize hesitated for a moment.
The magic tower, which said that the Kiera project had failed, was at odds with Alperier.
‘If it’s Alperier, they probably know more about the magic tower.’
Charlize looked down at the letter.
Because she went with Kahu, she couldn’t even kill the people of the magic tower, and she couldn’t pursue it any further.
Lucy, who said she didn’t want to be entangled with either Alperier or the magic tower, came to mind.
‘Even the assassin guild, who also serves as an information guild, is afraid.’
Charlize looked behind the letter paper.
No traces of dangerous mana were read in the magic circle drawn in gold. Of course, Payne is coming to persuade her to join Alperier.
‘That’s why I won’t say nonsense.’
In order to persuade Charlize, it has to be high-quality information accordingly.
The golden magic circle was shining brilliantly.
The hesitation was fleeting. She had no reason to delay. After thinking for a while, Charlize pulled out her dagger and ripped the summoning circle as it was.
In an instant, a dazzling light burst out in all directions, and thick smoke spread across the floor.
‘It’s a good thing I left all the maids.’
Charlize thought and saw Payne coughing in the smoke.
The use of mana by wizards is prohibited in the Imperial Castle. However, while committing illegal acts, Payne remained calm.
Payne greeted Charlize, wiping his mouth with the back of his hand.
“Long time no see? I missed you.”
“Just get to the point.”
Small talk that relieves the atmosphere was not Charlize’s taste.
As she fiddled with her dagger, Payne hurriedly pulled his lips apart.
“I heard that you were tracking the wizards of the magic tower with the young duke last time.”
Charlize did not deny it.
“So what? Is there a problem?”
“Oh, no! It’s true. Everything. I’m just saying you’re right.”
Afraid to offend Charlize, Payne hurriedly waved his hand. But today the atmosphere was strange. He seemed more serious than ever.
Payne’s gold eye was mysterious.
Now, the face that was not covered with a robe was dazzling with its presence.
Payne, whose hair had been messed up by his movement, pressed his hand against the back of his stretched hair.
“Before we talk, I have one thing to tell you.”
“What is it?”
“Come into the Alperier. Because the information that can be given to outsiders other than members is limited.”
The offer to join was what she expected, but the choice of words bothered her. Payne also corrected his words, wondering if he was mistaken.
“Please come into the Alperier. I beg you. It’s because I really want you.”
“Let’s listen to the story first.”
Charlize said as she held the dagger to the tip of her chin. It would be dangerous for knights with insufficient skills, but Charlize’ sword could not even hurt the inner wound of course.
It was very strange when Charlize’s genius skills harmonized with her unique, indifferent and fascinating face.
Payne used to cough.
“After tenaciously dealing with the wizards of the magic tower, I found out the real purpose.”
The opening was interesting.
Charlize asked with an emotionless look.
“Real purpose? Wasn’t the Kiera Project their purpose from the beginning?”
After having a conversation with Dylan about Kiera, she now learned not to be noticeably agitated.
On the outside, Charlize only showed moderate interest, but her hostility toward the magic tower was not clearly revealed.
“That’s right, but the real purpose of the Kiera project was. Turning people into swords… That’s why I heard that they make gods with human hands? There was more purpose than that.”
Feed them a piece of Ehyrit to make it a god. They were cruel from the very beginning. Charlize’s eyes subsided coldly. Payne paid attention to Charlize.
“The magic tower, it wasn’t denying God.”
It was an unexpected sound.
They were always blaspheming, saying that Ehyrit was not a god because he was dead.
So, they decided that ‘Ehyrit’s Piece’ was fed into people’s mouths without hesitation. Charlize had a gut feeling that another story would come out.
But Payne’s story was more intense than she expected.
“They believe in God blindly. No. They’re mostly fanatics. They’re probably more religious than the Pope.”
“What are you….”
Charlize tried to listen calmly. It was a completely different sound from common sense that Charlize knew.
“Charlize. I’ll tell you because it’s you,”
“There are six ranks in the magic tower. I was the fifth. There is information that can be viewed from the top six ranks. I brought it in before, but I couldn’t decipher it…. but I succeeded a while ago.”
Payne smiled. It wasn’t a playful smile as usual.
“The god that the magic tower wanted to make. It was not meant to create a more perfect god than Ehyrit with human hands.”
Charlize was Kiera. She was tortured, smelted, and wielded. A terrible pain that she couldn’t forget that she returned.
After returning and searching for information, she knew that it was evidence that they were trying to create a God.
Payne’s voice trembled.
“Will you promise me? Even if I die.”
Payne found out something scary. Charlize Ronan is the only one he can entrust this story to.
“You will know this information and keep it to the end. Because I can’t trust anyone.”
Charlize instinctively realized that many things would turn upside down. As Charlize nodded her head, Payne laughed a little.
“There are two gods in the world.”
The word to break the concept of the only god, Ehyrit, came from Payne. He didn’t seem to believe in himself.
“The one and only god Ehyrit. And…”
Saint’s ears heard an uncontrollable sound of the heart. The beat of Payne that’s beating like crazy. anxious and shocked somewhere.
An unfathomable heartbeat could be heard in Saint’s ears. Payne’s frantic beating. Anxious and somewhat shocked.
“The evil spirit.”
Charlize’s heart also began to beat.
“The magic tower was trying to make evil spirits.”
This simple information was true without a single lie. It was a tremendous truth.
It felt as if time had stopped because it was unrealistic. No. Charlize blocked all her senses. She might be able to understand it.
[Is it true that only the princess overcame the energy in the sculpture? Among the many experiments?]
[Because she’s the pure energy of evil]
She remembered the conversation the wizards had before returning.
There was something strange. Why do evil spirits exist in Ehyrit’s sculptures? Scholars say that the fragmented Ehyrit harbored evil towards humans, but she felt a sense of difference somewhere.
When Kiera was built, the magic tower kept coming and going. As if to check something.
However, such blindness made no sense to be obsessed with just making God with human hands.
“The evil spirit is a magical crystal. People in the magic tower receive magic from evil spirits. That’s how humans, not wizards, became wizards.”
Payne sighs and smiles bitterly. He said slowly.
“The reason why they’re tracking Alperier from the magic tower is because of me. This document I deciphered. There was something incredible written on it.”
Do you know what it is?
Charlize was just listening to what Payne said. Holding her breath.
Once you hear it, you will never be able to go back. But is it a truth that can be handled? For a moment, her head cooled down in front of the great secret. Strangely, she doesn’t want to hear it.
Did I finally open my eyes?
Before Payne’s lips parted, Charlize had a lot of thoughts. If she puts a little force on the dagger, she can cut Payne.
Even the form of a sword cannot but be worshiped.
She could not listen to him. It was instinctive intent to murder. But
“Kiera the evil spirit.”
My evil spirit.
She couldn’t cut it.
And at the moment, everything shook.
