Chapter 1. Kill the Empress

Tamon, who had been staring in the direction of the sailor on the mast, frowned.
His eyes immediately looked down to the sea where the ship was floating.
It was an ominous vibrating sound spreading from very deep.
Jorge, who was watching Tamon, jumped up and lifted the spear.
His speciality was not swords, but spears, and his spear weighed more than any weapon and boasted great destructive power.
“There it is.”
Tamon, who had taken out his sword, moved.
“Ah, general! There’s another one!”
With two leaps, Tamon jumped over the ship’s railing at once.
He briefly shouted at Jorge, who was startled and tried to follow.
“Cover outside. There’s more than one of them.”
“…D*mn it! So sudden!”
Jorge said in a panic, but he had already sent a hand signal before Tamon could say anything.
The spearmen who had been waiting drew their bows in unison. Jorge also let go of his own spear and raised his sharp harpoon. And….
Without hesitation, Tamon jumped into the sea.
…………… What was that?
Roselyn wrinkled her brow as she looked at the black hair rising from the sea.
She was looking at a person. The immature younger brother of Tamon Krasis.
Suddenly, the dark hair came up the seashore, looked around the area and found Roselyn sitting on the beach.
While he opened his eyes wide and was briefly mesmerized, the distracted twins quickly blocked Roselyn and shouted.
“Intruder! Intruder! Guards!”
“…… Hey! Hey, guys, shut up! No, I’m not!”
Startled by the loud shouting of the girls, Cassion hurriedly rushed out of the sea.
The twins who were standing in front of Roselyn had nowhere to run and their mouths were covered as they were grabbed by Cassion.
But since there were two twins and only one Cashion, one of them escaped and shouted.
“Hey! Guards! Guards!”
“Hey! Be quiet! Don’t you people know who I am?”
Cassion shouted threateningly, but the brave twins did not care. Slipping out of his grasp, Tasha quickly replied.
“I know! I know, so I’ll scream!”
“Why are you screaming when you know!?”
“Because we can’t do anything, that’s why we have to call someone else!”
Cassion’s face turned red with a smart response.
He grabbed the fleeing Tasha and quickly covered both of the twins’ mouths at the same time.
“Oooooohhh! Ughhhh! Ugh!”
“…… ugh! Ugh-Ugh!
Tasha and Louie were small in stature. They were very ordinary women who had never learned anything like self defense.
The story went that Cassion, who had been sickly when she was small but had exercised tirelessly to build up his strength after his illness, was enough to subdue them.
Roselyn, who had been watching the scene from a distance, let out a small sigh.
The twins had shouted so hard that it worked, and the knights who had been guarding a short distance away rushed to the scene.
At that moment, a look of dismay crossed Cassion’s face, but it was quickly erased.
It was replaced by a bold expression.
Roselyn couldn’t help but let out a giggle.
‘That’s a great confidence.’
Cassion turned his head and looked at Roselyn.
“I can’t believe it was a woman that my brother hid. It’s a woman………ha.”
Even though he smiled in vain as if it were absurd, he couldn’t take his eyes off Roselyn’s face. He frowned his forehead to the fullest, but his gaze toward her was shaking helplessly.
Roselyn just watched Cassion, who was confused as he looked at her.
She didn’t take any action, nothing at all. She did so even though she knew it was making Cassion more confused.
“…… Master Cassion!”
From afar, Satin came running with the knights.
Cassion, who glanced at him, asked Roselyn in an annoyed voice.
“You! What’s your name?”
‘Shall I answer or not?’
Tamon didn’t want his brother to see her. Probably because he would make trouble.
And she didn’t want things to get too noisy or tiring here either.
Roselyn silently raised her eyebrows as if she didn’t understand.
Cassion, who was waiting for her answer, frowned in frustration.
“You can’t tell me? Or did my brother tell you not to answer me?”
Cassion’s sharp tone caused the twins who were being held silent by him, to struggle and fuss again.
“Uuuup! Uh-oup! Kuuuuup!”
“Be quiet for a minute. You guys! It’s so loud it’s killing me.”
“Uupuuup! U-p-u-p! Uppuup!”
“Kuuuuup! Kuuuuup! Kuuuuuck! Kuujig………”
Tasha and Louie didn’t give in and shouted.
He bared his teeth and growled, frowning grimly when he saw the knights running closer.
“…Hey, how come the old Satin is so fast?”
He didn’t like Satin, whose short legs ran so fast.
It made him (Cassion) upset to think that he (Satin) had to run so desperately to catch him. (Cassion)
“Master Cassion! Oh, hah hah! Did you come in? Oh my god! You’re all wet! Did you just swim here? Oh my! If you catch a cold, you’ll be in big trouble!”
Satin quickly wrapped the large towel around his shoulders.
“Oh, Master Cassion, please let the twins go.”
“They’re too noisy.”
“Master Cashion jumped out of the water so suddenly, they all must have been surprised!”
“Hmph! These kids know who I am, and yet they squealed and squealed as if they saw an intruder!”
“Because you’re an intruder!”
Satin laughed with a surprised look on his face when Cassion snapped at him angrily.
“Stop it, Master Cassion. Yes? Come on, come on, let’s go home. How on earth did you get here?”
“……..Because of that woman, isn’t it? The reason you closed the east annex.”
“Oh, I don’t know. Master Cassion. I’m not the one who gives the orders.”
“Do you think it makes sense that you, the butler, doesn’t know what’s going on in the mansion?”
“I didn’t know. How could I have known that Master Cassion would swim across the sea and jump out onto the remote beach of the east annex?”
Cassion hit his chest as if he was frustrated by Satin’s words escaping like a sly snake.
Meanwhile, the knights, who received Satin’s wink, grabbed Cassion from both sides and lifted him with force.
“What are you doing? Let go! Who told me to touch my body carelessly?”
Cassion growled. When the knights flinched, Satin patted Cassion’s back and soothed him.
“You’ll catch a cold. Aren’t you suffering from pneumonia? Come on, let’s go quickly. What? Oh, Tasha! What are you doing? Tell the chef to serve hot tea!”
“No! No! No! No! I’m not going! Let me down? Do you want to die? Oh, my God! What are you doing?”
Cassion struggled desperately, but he could not escape the hands of the knights who had seized him.
Unable to bear his anger, Cassion turned his head and shouted at Roselyn.
“You! What is your name?”
‘Why are you so obsessed with names? What are you going to do with it?’
Roselyn silently turned her head away. Cassion’s angry voice echoed across the beach.
“You there! Hey! Aah!”
…brothers side by side were first in line to pluck a man’s soul.
Roselyn didn’t want to see any more of Cassion.
Satin was becoming more and more alert, and the number of guards had increased.
She also decided to restrain herself from walking on the beach until Cassion left the mansion.
A few days, yes. That night when she thought she would never see him again because he would be leaving soon.
After daring an early morning swim, Cassion was soaking wet and tapped on her window.
‘Should I shout?’
Roselyn stared at the shivering Cassion through the balcony window with a troubled face.
No matter how warm this country was, even the sea at night couldn’t be warm.
He tapped on the balcony window with a pale face, but didn’t make a fuss.
It was only natural, since the knights were on the lookout for the area night and day.
He couldn’t have known that, but it was a very drastic move indeed.
Cassion tapped on the window again as if to tell her to open it quickly. The shivering figure was like a wet rat.
“What should I do?”
Looking at him with a troubled face, Roselyn quietly approached the window. Cassion’s face brightened.
Staring at him as he eagerly gestured and pointed to unfasten the clasp, Roselyn reached out and grasped the curtain.
Then she pulled it slowly as she looked at Cassion’s face.
Just before the curtain closed, she caught a glimpse of Cassion’s puzzled face.
“No, what! Hey, open it! Open it!”
She could hear Cassion’s voice shouting in a small, startled way from behind the closed door. It was a whisper, not loud enough to draw attention.
Roselyn pretended not to hear it and dug under the covers.
