Chapter 1. Kill the Empress
A satisfied smile appeared on Tamon’s lips.
Then, in a flash, he knelt down and grabbed her by the ankle.
“Well then, I guess this is mine now.”
Surprised, Roselyn tried to back away, but it was only after the captured ankle had already been lifted.
Roselyn grabbed a post supporting the deck for balance. Tamon kissed her casually on the top of her gently lifted ankle.
Once again, Roselyn was sure of her thoughts.
Tamon was a pervert…
A dry cough poured out as if tearing up his lungs.
Gillotti covered his mouth as he coughed.
The coughing sound continued.
Nervously rubbing his forehead, he couldn’t take it anymore and called for his immediate attendant.
“Attendant!? Bring me the medicine! Right now!”
At his shout, a servant came running in with a pale face.
As soon as he saw the servant, Gillotti threw the pillow he was holding at him.
“I don’t think the medicine has a single effect! Now, bring me another potion immediately!”
“Your Majesty! Dr. Heintzel said that any more medicine would only worsen the symptoms. Even though it’s painful, please be patient for a little while!”
“D*mn it! My heart is about to break! Do you want me to endure? You want me to die right now! Aren’t you still a pawn of the dead empress!”
“What are you talking about? Your Majesty! I am John Narteso, attendant to Your Majesty since I was ten years old. How can I deceive Your Majesty!”
Tsk, tsk, tsk!”
Crouched on bed, Gillotti gritted his teeth as he breathed heavily.
After the Empress died, Gillotti’s headaches had gotten worse, until one day he couldn’t stand it anymore unless he took medicine.
He even developed a cough, which he hadn’t had before, and his voice cracked, and he didn’t even want to listen to anyone.
“It’s the Empress’ curse. That woman. It’s her curse!”
Gillotti gritted his teeth as she thought of Roselyn, who tormented him even after death.
Those piercing purple eyes that looked straight at him when he stared at her as she lay dying in the underground prison.
Roselyn’s purple eyes had always been so feminine, even when he held her cold body in his arms shortly after they were married.
The eyes that were forced to look down with a slight frown, as if enduring a hard time.
She didn’t let out a groan, nor did she make any effort to do so.
Just thinking about those shining purple eyes, as if they could see through him, made him angrier.
He pulled out all of Roselyn’s nails, but she didn’t even scream. Instead, her venom flared up and she spat out a ridiculous curse at him.
“I won’t forgive you. Gillotti Tanatos, I will never forgive you.”
Gillotti whipped Roselyn’s smooth back until there were no more signs of skin.
“How dare you curse me? You came in for me and you had to obey me! You shouldn’t have looked at me like my father!”
Tears of blood flowed from Roselyn’s eyes.
Her white cheeks were stained with tears and blood, and her purple eyes, which were shining brightly above them, were terrifying.
“I should have cut out those eyes.”
Gillotti gritted his teeth. He was being generous because she was already in a miserable state.
“…… Yes, let’s see if you win or I win, Empress.”
Gillotti, who had opened his eyes wide, jumped up from his seat.
“It must be completely uprooted. It must be erased from this country!”
When he was this angry, Natasha used to come over and comfort him.
She would hug him in her soft arms. Her embrace was as warm as spring and as soft as a mother’s.
But she began to deftly avoid him when Gillotti began to cough.
“Didn’t His Majesty’s precious seed get planted in Natasha’s belly…………? Mothers endure hard times, sometimes holding back what they miss and the food they want to eat for the sake of their children. Your Majesty, this is all for the sake of your child, so please understand.”
Gillotti didn’t know how to endure for the sake of a child who was yet to be born. He immediately got angry and came to get her.
At first he tried to have her, despite the doctor’s order that he had to be careful.
No, if it wasn’t for Natasha’s amazing tricks, he would have.
“Isn’t it necessary to take Your Majesty to your climax? Your Majesty, don’t suffer too much. If you suffer, Natasha will be even more sad…. I will soothe Your Majesty with Natasha’s humble talent.”
He thought she only had a talent for pouring out sweet words, but her mouth had a great variety of uses.
However, that was only once or twice.
“I am your woman, even though the fever in my body is boiling up and killing me,” and behaved cautiously so as not to see him from now on.
Breathing roughly, Gillotti immediately called for the infantry.
The commander of the 2nd Infantry rushed to him and knelt before him.
“Go at once and burn Roselyn’s mansion. Burn it all down so that nothing is left.”
The infantry commander didn’t raise his head, but he couldn’t help but feel his shoulders tremble slightly.
With his head down, he clenched his teeth.
‘I have to be patient. I could endure it then, I can endure it now.’
But the Emperor’s next words made him raise his head.
“Dig up the tombs of her ancestors and throw it into its flames.”
The infantry commander stared at the emperor with white, frightened eyes. His eyes, which had opened in shock, were trembling.
“What are you doing! Go and execute it right now!”
“Your Majesty! That’s…..that’s…………..!”
It was to humiliate the deceased.
They were great aristocrats who devoted their lives to this country.
But digging up the tombs of the predecessors of Sunset, who were devoted to Tanatos from the previous Emperor and this Emperor himself….
The infantry commander banged his head on the floor and begged for the order to be withdrawn.
But what came back was a kick from Gillotti.
“Do you think there is no one to carry out the order but you! Hey, put him in the dungeon right away!”
“Your Majesty, I beg you, no more…………!”
Betrayal of the Heavenly Law!
The 2nd Infantry Commander Weekley Danhover pleaded to the end, but Gillotti coldly averted his gaze.
After the walk on the beach, Tamon and Roselyn took a seat on the terrace overlooking the seaside and had a little early dinner.
Since coming to Amor, Roselyn has been well taken care of every day.
It was literally.
It was ‘what happened’.
She slept, ate, rested, read, and listened to music.
During the day, she cooled off the heat with moderately cold water, and at night, after taking a bath with warm water, she slept with the breeze blowing gently.
In the meantime, her broken limbs had fully recovered.
Not only the new flesh, but also the nails and toenails that were pulled out raw came out beautifully.
The whip marks on her back and the chain marks on her ankles also completely disappeared, returning to her snow-white flesh.
Asrell and the twins didn’t ask what happened, though they were amazed at Roselyn’s remarkable resilience.
They thought that she was saved by the priests of the temple or the precious medicines of royalty.
In this world, where divine power still lingered in some places, sometimes the events were quite absurd.
Anyway, while Roselyn was being taken care of in such a generous manner, Tamon said that he had taken care of some business that had been piling up.
“Our king is a skeptic, and one whose senses have developed by leaps and bounds. She’s also simple. I managed to get away with it at the time with the silver deer, but there is still something strange about it. There are now more watchers around.”
At Tamon’s words, Roselyn asked in a worried voice.
“Or inside this mansion………?”
He shrugged and smiled as if it wasn’t a big deal.
Roselyn couldn’t help but be amazed at Tamon’s relaxation.
“I’ve heard that you and the king are not on bad terms, so why is she keeping an eye on you?”
Tamon replied indifferently.
“Well, we’re close. We’ve helped each other out a lot. But I told you earlier. Theo has good instincts. And she trusts her instincts.”
“That means she sensed something strange about you. Or maybe she sensed it when she saw me that day. ……”
“Probably both. She’s suspicious about us, but she couldn’t interrogate us and there was no evidence, so she put surveillance on us.”
He replied leisurely, slicing the third chunk of meat.
Roselyn glanced tiredly at the fourth plate of meat being filled in front of him, then gently lowered her fork.
Just one plate of seafood and a salad seasoned with lemon sauce was enough to fill her up.
“Why don’t you eat more?”
“I had enough.”
“It might be hard to hold on to that.”
Tamon responded by slicing a piece of meat the size of a hand.
“Hold on? What do you mean?”
As he rinsed his mouth with cool ice water, Roselyn tilted her head and asked. Tamon looked at her, slicing his leftover meat and shoving it into his mouth.
The rhythmic articulation of his jaw was relaxed, like a beast of prey enjoying its food after a hunt.
A small bite of flesh was sucked into his throat. At that moment, Roselyn realized what he was talking about.
She didn’t think that was the way…. …..
Her face flushed red and began to pale immediately.
She wanted to ask if her guess was right, but she couldn’t open her mouth. With only her red lips twitching, Tamon chuckled and said.
“That’s right. That’s what you’re thinking right now.”
