Chapter 1. Kill the Empress
Sponsored by Lia. Thank you 💖 (¾)
Even though her eyes were closed, Roselyn could feel the glare.
She turned her head away, frowning. “I didn’t want to wake up.”
Her whole body felt sluggish and throbbing, but strangely refreshed.
This made Roselyn even more reluctant to open her eyes.
She didn’t want to wake up and feel as if this refreshing and languid feeling would fly away.
She didn’t feel any tiredness, not even from the headache that had been hanging over her every day since she joined the royal family.
She loved it. So much that she dug into the blanket like a child.
At that moment, something hot and heavy dug into her thighs.
Thick, heavy arms hugged her waist, and something warm and wet slid down her shoulders to her chest.
It was soft and ticklish and nice, but very annoying.
She tried to push away, but it was tangled more powerfully.
The thick and firm texture actually felt pretty good, so she eventually let it go as it did.
Eventually she realized later that it was human skin.
Her eyes immediately lit up.
In the meantime, Tamon’s lips, which had been closely leaving traces, passed over her shoulder and down below her collarbone, near the pretty breasts.
Sometimes people are so surprised that they are at a loss for words.
That’s exactly what Roselyn was now.
It was so obscene that she couldn’t believe what she saw as soon as she woke up.
She never thought she’d see Tamon’s well-formed face trailing across her chest on such a sunny morning……
The white skin that was covered with colorful marks last night was getting hotter and hotter.
Tamon curled up the corners of his mouth and smiled and spoke softly.
Isn’t this too inappropriate for a morning greeting?
Roselyn’s eyes grew larger and larger as she looked at him with a puzzled expression.
It was due to the fact that Tamon was going down lower and lower, keeping eye contact with her.
Then he opened his lips and licked his tongue.
Then he engulfed her flower into his mouth all at once, red and swollen from being tormented all night long.
She felt as if her eyes were turning red.
Her hips twitched at the warmth and soft touch felt in her sensitive flower.
With an incredulous look on her face, she quickly pushed Tamon away.
No, she tried to push him away.
Until she was surprised by a tingling pain felt in her flower. Startled, Roselyn gave a small yelp with her reddened face, even though there was no one to hear her.
“Don’t bite me!”
Still not letting go of it, Tamon erupted in laughter.
(*oh mischievous Tamon 😏)
“Really? No one came out?”
“Yes. No one has been out yet.”
“That’s unusual. No matter how big that mansion is, it must be frustrating…”
Amor was a beautiful country.
Especially when the seasons were usually warm and sunny, and people were rarely at home.
It would be a waste not to enjoy such a beautiful country, beautiful land and sea.
“That’s strange. Is she imprisoned?”
“Yeah. That’s possible. Tamon is a rather obsessed person, so he may lock her up and not let her go out.”
She nodded as if to give strength to her thoughts.
She was the current young king of Amor, who was strengthening her kingdom with strong drive and determination.
The power base she held was also backed by the Krasis family.
But that didn’t mean that Tamon and Theo were in a relationship of faith that was completely united.
Neither of them trusted each other and even if they did believe, they knew they could change at any time.
But no matter how much so, Tamon was not the kind of person who would suddenly betray Theo.
Theo had been watching Tamon closely for quite some time.
Tamon was belligerent but cautious, and his sharp impressions intimidated his enemies, but his often-smiling face made him likable in contrast.
In particular, his voice, which sounded slow, had the power to make one listen beyond reason and genders, beyond nationality.
He was a clever man who was interested in all studies except those related to public administration, and especially in learning a variety of foreign languages and using them for various things.
He was as reliable as a thousand horses, but when such a person became an enemy, he was more troublesome and annoying than anyone else.
Noticing him early on, Theo decided to keep him by her side, and it seemed to have worked so far.
Theo saved his brother, and Tamon avenged her enemies.
It balanced the relationship quite well, but Theo needed a stronger heart than this.
If it was his loyalty, there would be nothing more she could wish for.…………
“If that’s not good enough, we can just match our understanding. I have no idea how that guy feels.’
Theo’s goal was to make this country, Amor, stronger than Tanatos.
In order to do so, she needed a useful person named Tamon.
Until now, it wasn’t difficult to “use” this useful human resource according to Theo’s preference.
Fortunately, for Tamon, there was no particular goal.
He just enjoyed fighting, competing with his opponents whether it was on the battlefield or in a venue.
Although he never said it, his favorite opponent was the Empress of Tanatos.
Theo had heard many stories about her being extremely intelligent, but that didn’t make her special to her.
She wasn’t belligerent or combative in her diplomacy, and she was just good enough to cultivate what she had by making good use of defense and offense as appropriate.
“It is very difficult, Your Majesty. It’s a matter of maintaining balance, staying in line with the goals you set, and sticking to them. It’s not easy for everyone, but she does it really well. You can’t let your guard down.”
She would never let her guard down, but she was finally ousted by the Emperor.
Making a good impression on the outside would not help. After all, if you mixed it up in your mind, it was over.
Theo loathed Tanatos.
She hated it and thought of it as miserable.
She still hadn’t forgotten that day when her father pleaded with Tanatos, banging his forehead on the ground. As evidence of the alliance, her little sister was taken and he still did not know if she was dead or alive.
According to Tanatos’ side of the story, Lana ran away from the academy herself……….
It wasn’t supposed to be like that. The young but clever Lana would never have run away from home so recklessly.
Theo gritted her teeth, still frustrated at the thought of Lana.
Her hatred for Tanatos grew in volume by the day.
“I’m sure I’ll get my chance soon. I’m sure I will.”
The Empress, who had been so great, was gone, and even the Sunset family that had supported the country was gone.
The people were angry, and the Emperor was now in a bad shape. How could the foolish Tanatos, the Emperor’s own self-interest, not prevail and shake the very foundations of the country?
That man’s arrogance drove Tanatos to its death.
“It is said the Sunset family was destroyed, but there are still two families left. I didn’t know how Tanatos is able to get a steady supply of silver deer.”
The silver horned deer was an important beast on the continent.
Maybe it was because of “divine intervention,” but this world was somewhat uneasy.
One day, a “gap” occurred, and unheard-of monsters began to flood the world.
The temples of each country tried their best to fill it, but it wasn’t easy.
The sky, the sea, and the earth all had “gaps” in them.
Fortunately, the number of infiltrations was not very large, but the poison emitted by the monsters was so strong that it was difficult to overpower each and every one.
The most useful items used in defeating these monsters were the antlers and leather of the silver deer, the Laxicon and Demeter of the Ores of God, and the Holy Objects.
God’s ability worked against monsters, but most of the people who possessed it were royalty.
It was not easy for them to come to the fore.
As a result, the antlers and leather of silver deer, and how much Laxicon and Demeter they had were an important indicator of the country’s defense.
The other day, Tamon brought him a silver antlered deer, which was actually a ridiculously large harvest.
“…… But why do I feel uncomfortable?”
Theo tilted her head back, scratching her head.
She wasn’t actually a brainiac.
She had good sense and luck, but it was hard to manipulate something by using her brain.
“I think it’s her.”
—A beautiful silver-haired slave.
It was Tamon’s slave, who resembled the Empress of the enemy country.
Theo had always said it proudly. She trusted her senses more than her head.
And her sense kept pointing at the woman.
She thought of her as if she was someone Tamon had fallen in love with at first sight. But something was bothering him, but he couldn’t figure out what it was exactly.
“It’s all suspicious. It’s just weird.”
The strangest thing was Tamon.
Theo had never seen Tamon’s eyes so full of desire. She even suspected him of being homosexual.
But how could he look like that at a slave he just bought? He was seemingly quite calm and dark, although the depth of his emotions could not be easily guessed.
“I don’t think it was love at first sight or anything, though.”
Such a look was by no means a depth occured in a day or two. Theo was troubled, biting the inner flesh of her lip, as was her habit.
“It’s weird. No matter what I think, something’s wrong… …. Ugh, it’s this stone head.”
Theo was struggling to breathe, standing up and rubbing her face frustratingly.
“Keep watching and when she comes outside…”
Theo thought of Tamon for a moment, but quickly put him out of her mind.
No matter what he did with a single slave, Tamon couldn’t harm the King. And best of all, Tamon would never know.
“Anyway, bring her to me.”
Theo was confident that she could coax at least one slave into helping her.
“If she refuses….”
Theo ordered with a smirk.
“Bring her to me by any means and methods. Even if you have to kidnap her.”
—if she was a “real slave”.
