Chapter 1. Kill the Empress
Sponsored chapter by Sky269. Thank you 💖
Roselyn didn’t know what kind of emotions he was showing.
It was an emotion that had a distinctly different temperature and viscosity than what she knew.
She raised her eyes to meet his red ones.
She could see the lust that filled his red eyes. He wanted her all over again.
How could she look at a man like this and not have desire ……….?
It was unbelievable.
Because, at least as far as she knew, Tamon was lustful if he saw her.
Roselyn was curious.
Gillotti told her that she has a body colder than ice.
He said an iron doll would be warmer than she was.
Gillotti made a lot of fun of her, saying that she would not be able to bear a child with such a body.
He even spoke of it in front of the nobility, causing her loving father, the Duke of Sunset, to stand up and knock down the table.
Roselyn didn’t know how to treat Gillotti.
When she tried to be nice to him, he resented her for her hypocrisy, and when she pretended not to know him, he came and violated her when she ignored him.
Gillotti visited her almost every week, without fail, and taunted her.
Since she couldn’t prevent him using any of these methods, she had to leave him alone to make noise. After some point, she couldn’t help but think that she really was that stiff person, just like he said.
Then Natasha Roanti, who appeared just in time, made Gillotti’s mockery about Roselyn’s body even more solid.
Compared to Natasha, who was like the sunshine of spring, Roselyn really felt like she was an ice doll.
However, that wasn’t a bad thing.
Her goal was to accomplish the work she was given in a respectable manner without wavering, so she thought that maybe that hard figure was close to her goal.
‘But why is he looking at me like that?’
‘Is it because of his red eyes?’
The image of herself in his eyes looked alive, raw and hot.
He looked at her as if he were looking at something interesting. With those red eyes shining brilliantly.
Roselyn reached out her slender hand and carefully swept Tamon’s eyes.
He looked confident and arrogant, and she could feel flinched.
A strange sense of satisfaction tickled her stomach.
In his red eyes, she didn’t see the golden crack like last night.
“What happened yesterday…..Are you going to have it again?”
“What is the cause?
Tamon was quiet for the first time when she asked.
Roselyn knew why he didn’t answer.
“…Is it because of that weird ability you have?”
“So, you have a lot of power and you saved me with it?”
A different look came into Tamon’s eyes.
He stared at her as if her clarity was so endearing that she could analogize the reason without difficulty.
“Half right, half wrong.”
“What is right and what is wrong?”
“Well, first of all, the reason my power went out of control was because I put it into an unmarked opponent. I’m not certain of that either. I also don’t know exactly what my power is yet. That’s why half of it is right and half of it is wrong.”
“Isn’t your power divine power? I’ve never heard of this method of releasing it by mixing bodies before.”
“Well, everything is different. Before I had this power, I didn’t even know that such an ability existed.”
“What did the power look like?”
“It’s a blood disease.”
Roselyn’s eyes widened momentarily.
She’d heard that Tamon Krasis was sick before, and so it was this disease.
There was very little known about it, but she did know to the extent that there was a blood disease that had been passed down for generations in the Krasis family, and those who contracted it rarely survived.
The only person who had survived it was the very person in front of her now, Tamon.
“This disease …..It isn’t a disease, is it?”
“I like that you understand quickly.”
Tamon chuckled and patted Roselyn’s little chin.
“So if you mixed your body with a marked opponent, you won’t have power overload like yesterday?”
“That too, maybe… but there’s no way to be sure. I don’t have a record of it, so I have to face it myself.”
Then the mixing body was an unknown method for now.
“But… but if you don’t release it, you will always be out of control?”
“I’ve never used it with this much power before, but ……. From now on, I’ll have to release it or it’ll be in trouble.”
“How do you know that?”
“……… I just feel it. I can tell.”
Tamon rubbed his heart.
Roselyn knew something had changed. A greater power had come into her body. She also had a feeling that her fate would depend on how she handled this.
“Then why don’t you just release it into someone quickly.”
“It’s not that simple.”
At Tamon’s words, Roselyn gave him a curious look. Somehow, she felt his eyes were smiling.
“As you may have noticed, my life force is primarily made up of ‘fluids’ and ‘contact’. This means that I have to constantly do it.”
Roselyn’s face hardened.
She remembered last night when he ate her up and gave her life force.
“Your power resembles you. Shameless.”
“Well, there is a way to treat it without having to mix bodies, but… you can’t do that every time, right?”
She felt his body heating up. Roselyn looked at him in a panic.
“See, I have such energy, such healthy desire. But I can’t even get into a relationship because of my power.”
It was only then that Roselyn understood why the rumors said Tamon was asexual or gay.
The moment he mixed bodies, his power would pour into the other person.
Then it was only natural that he couldn’t have a relationship with them recklessly.
“There’s a risk that my power might be exposed here and there if I’m not careful, and mixing my body with unmarked opponents only gives them strength unilaterally, so it’s too much for me, too. If I did that, my power would go out of control again.”
It was a lie.
Tamon was very nonchalantly lying, but only his expression was more frank than ever.
Actually, just mixing bodies does drain his power.
Even though he wasn’t used to this power, it didn’t mean that he couldn’t control the extent of it.
However, if he didn’t say so much, Roselyn would never take his bait.
So he was willing to lie to her.
In his mind, he made up an excuse, “This much lying is cute,” and gave her a sincere expression.
“So my choices are limited.”
He rubbed at his heart again, wrinkling one eyebrow in a showy manner.
Her purple eyes stared at him.
The look was a mixture of suspicion and concern. Tamon couldn’t help but smile a little.
‘Look at this.’
This woman was born incapable of evil.
She said she hated him so much, but look how she assimilated his words.
He saw things in her eyes that he couldn’t see when he looked at her from a distance.
It was a variety of emotions, wavering eyes, and passionate reactions that were hidden beneath the blank expression.
‘You can’t let your guard down on me already.’
He tried to make a decent expression.
Of course, his body, which was touching her skin, had been showing an ungodly temper for some time.
“We did all night last night, so maybe I’ll be fine for a while.”
“And after a while?”
“I don’t know, either. Will the situation like yesterday happen again, or will it remain quiet… …I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.”
Roselyn became serious at his words.
Of course, he didn’t make her do it, but still, Roselyn hated to force herself on someone else.
There was a corner of her mind where she still felt guilty that the deaths of her family, her best friend, and the nobles who followed her were because of her.
Roselyn didn’t want to put anyone else in it.
Especially Tamon Krasis, she was even more reluctant.
Tamon laughed, his face twisting slightly. His voice went lower.
“Are you feeling guilty about what you did?”
“I thought you hated me so much you wanted to kill me. But you didn’t yell at me that you didn’t want to.”
Roselyn frowned and glared at him.
Tamon smirked, his eyes narrowed.
“You’re too weak for someone you don’t like. We seem to get along better than I thought, what do you think? ”
“Please, shut your mouth.”
Roselyn let out a small scream, her face red with embarrassment.
With an exasperated groan, she pushed his shoulders out with her fists, but Tamon didn’t move an inch.
The weight that was pressing down on her was only increased.
“You’re a beast.”
“And you moaned when you had that beast inside you.”
Every word he said provoked her shame.
It was impossible for her to listen to him.
She gave up trying to get rid of him and covered his mouth with her hands.
Tamon chuckled and grabbed Roselyn’s hand that was covering his mouth. Then he began to lick her palms, tasting it.
“What, what are you doing?”
Roselyn tried to pull her hand away in frustration, but it was too late.
He rubbed her palms with his thick lips and licked them with the tip of his tongue.
Her stimulated palms tickled like crazy. She was out of breath even though Tamon hadn’t done anything.
“Don’t be weak, Roselyn. No…… Aranrosia.”
