Chapter 1. Kill the Empress
Sponsored by a kofi supporter. Thank you 💖
Pale, Arsene hurriedly raised his voice and shook the bars.
“Hey, hey! Let me out! Let me out! This is kidnapping! You filthy criminal b*st*rds!”
[What, where is that sound coming from? Sifal! Keep them quiet!]
[What are you doing while the guards are still around! Do you want us all to get caught?]
Heavy footsteps were heard along with cussing.
Arsen fought against the bars, waving his hands in the air.
“Human trafficking! Abduction! Let me go, you criminals! Let me go!”
[Here it is!]
[Be quiet, you punk!]
One of the men hit the bars with something.
The cage where Arsene was imprisoned rattled and shook menacingly.
Another man reprimanded the man who hit the bars.
[Hey, hey! You’re making more noise! I told you to be quiet, but why are you making a louder noise?]
[Ha! That’s right. Sorry]
Arsen, who was listening to their conversation, pleaded again.
“Hey, hey! Hey, let me go! I have to go out! Please…!”
[Hey, you, you’re being very loud.]
[Hey, you, be quiet. Do you want to drown in the ocean while you’re trapped? Eh?]
The voice coming from outside became more shrill.
Arsene couldn’t understand what they were saying, but he could tell that the situation was getting worse.
However, that didn’t mean that I wanted to give up.
He had to get out somehow before the ship completely sailed away.
“Please, let me go! I belong to the Imperial Academy! I have the support of the Imperial Family…………..!”
I deliberately mentioned the Imperial Family, but it was useless.
They said a few more words in their language, and then covered the black cloth over the cage again.
Then they threw something into it.
In no time at all, smoke filled the cage.
As soon as Arsene smelled the smoke, he immediately felt dizzy.
[Is that too strong? It can make him dumb.]
[What would a slave do if he’s smart? That could be better for him]
[Yeah, that’s true, too! Anyway, you’re pretty smart.]
The men started laughing as if it was amusing. Arsene gritted his teeth, but he had no energy to even get angry.
His whole body weakened.
Arsene collapsed. His eyelids slowly closed.
He wasn’t sleepy, but he couldn’t muster any strength.
The Empress’s bracelet on his wrist was caught in his fluttering, slowly closing eyes.
Before he could wonder, Arsene’s eyes closed completely.
Nothing happened for a few days to the point of wonder.
Roselyn felt unfamiliar with those lazy days.
Of course, Tamon wouldn’t let her go at night.
But there was nothing lewd or promiscuous about the act.
He just fell asleep holding her tightly with his thick arms.
Roselyn would push him away and fall asleep, limp and tired.
When she woke up in the morning, he was gone.
Instead, Asrell and the twins came in to take care of her, and they took her soul completely.
The twins, Louie, claimed to be good with her hands, and rubbed Roselyn’s limbs diligently.
She was very good at applying special oil and rubbing with appropriate force.
Tasha was a good talker and chatted constantly, but her tone wasn’t particularly loud and she was witty, she knew when to talk and when to stop.
Maybe that’s why Roselyn didn’t mind listening to Tasha at all, in fact it was enjoyable.
Particularly interesting was the story of Tasha and Louie writing a novel.
Amor people, even the lower classes, were educated in writing, and it was true.
It was a wonder they could just read and write, but to write a novel?
Roselyn listened to the girls, inwardly marveling at their stories.
Then Roselyn almost spit out the tea she was drinking when she heard their novel was about a silver-haired beauty captured as a prisoner from another country and the red-eyed Tamon, the great General of a desert country….
“It’s a romantic story between a Princess from the winter land and a man from a fiery desert. The obsessive general won’t leave the Princess alone for even a moment, and the Princess begins to drown in the General’s love….I’ve written about half of it, and the response from the printers has been very positive.”
The twins confessed that they used Roselyn’s appearance for the female protagonist in the novel.
Roselyn said nothing to Tasha, who was overly excited.
They said they had to write the Princess to be the most beautiful woman and all they could think of was Roselyn.
“…Um, where is that place? Oh, the Empress of Tanatos has silver hair and purple eyes too. She’s rumored to be very beautiful. She’s a role model for many people.”
“…Of course, but in our opinion, Lady Aranrosia is much more beautiful than that person!”
Roselyn just smiled silently.
It was rather a gain for her if the twins’ romance novel became popular and was read everywhere.
Roselyn’s silver hair and purple eyes were not a common occurrence.
However, with such widespread depiction in novels, people would unconsciously get used to the silver hair and purple eyes.
Because then, there would be fewer people who would think of her as the Empress of Tanatos.
“Thank you very much. It looks really interesting. Can you show it to me later when you finish it?”
The twins nodded so strongly that she thought their heads would just fall off.
They even hugged each other happily and let out voiceless screams.
“Oh, please stop. That kind of romance novel is very dirty, My Lady.”
Asrell stopped Tasha with a wave of her hand. Not to be outdone by Asrell’s crumbled face, the twins answered.
“Physical relations are essential to the love between a man and a woman, Asrell! You have three children. Don’t you know that? Having three babies means…….”
“Stop it! What does that have to do with me having children….?”
“Asrell, your face is so red!”
“Your face is on fire. What were you thinking about?”
Asrell’s innocent face turned red as if it was on fire.
Roselyn, who was watching her, also blushed and turned her gaze to the book she was struggling to hold. In this way, she ate breakfast, listened to stories, and looked at the ocean, and before she knew it, the day had passed.
Before midnight, Roselyn fell asleep. Then at some point, she felt the seat next to her was filling up.
“I want to sleep.”
“Your eyes say you want to see me. I don’t have to sleep……. Let’s talk some more, shall we?”
Then a hand gently plunged into her waist, and Roselyn was startled to hear a quiet laugh as she squeezed her eyes shut.
Then a moment later Tamon gently patted her back.
To deny that his touch was affectionate, Roselyn closed her eyes and tried to sleep.
Many peaceful Amor nights passed like this.
“Why don’t you go out a little today? You’ll be tired of staying inside too much.”
“Yes, My Lady. It’s a beautiful day. Why don’t you go for a walk? You haven’t been out yet.
As soon as the twins put away the lunch, they suggested going for a walk.
At their suggestion, Roselyn finally remembered that she hadn’t left the mansion since she had been here.
The place Roselyn was staying was on the top floor of an annex with a good view of the ocean.
The annex was three stories high, but it was built on a hill with an ocean view.
Roselyn had the entire floor to herself.
There were several rooms, but her place was the main bedroom.
The rest of the annex had a library, reception rooms, and bathrooms.
They were guarded by guards. There were three in front of Roselyn’s main sleeping quarters, and two each in the middle hallway and in front of the stairs.
There would probably be a few more at the bottom of the stairs as well.
Roselyn naturally assumed they were there to keep an eye on her.
Or a means to lock her up.
‘…Can I go out?’
So she didn’t think it was okay to go out.
No, actually, she had never even tried.
But judging by the reactions of the twins and Asrell, it didn’t look like she was trapped.
“Will that be alright?”
