Chapter 1. Kill the Empress
Sponsored by Blank. Thank you 💖
Cassion stared alternately at Roselyn and the hand was rejected by her .
Roselyn took another step back and shook her head.
It was an obvious indication to stay away.
Asrell decided that she should step up. So, as she took a step closer towards Cassion, surprising words came out.
“I’m sorry…………. I didn’t mean to offend you.”
Cassion suddenly blushed and apologized.
“I’m not going to do anything to you. I just came here because I was really curious.”
Cassion was serious.
From the bottom of his heart, he truly felt the greatest curiosity of his life and came to visit her.
First of all, he was surprised that it was a woman that his brother had hidden, but he was also surprised once again that the woman had a beauty that was apparently not of this world.
As he swam through the ocean, he saw the silvery hair reflecting the bright Amor sunshine, and for the first time he felt his soul being sucked in.
He was curious what in the world so amazing could make his brother go this far.
And the moment he saw the reason, Cassion could understand his brother.
His brother didn’t want to show it to anyone, and didn’t want to share it with anyone.
He couldn’t believe it was a woman, a mere woman!
….was too beautiful a woman to be angry with.
Afterwards, the knights took him back to the west annex, but he couldn’t think about anything else for the rest of the day.
His head, eyes and ears were all open, facing east.
At the end of the day, there were some misconceptions that he might have had a hallucination.
He wanted to see those cold purple eyes again. He wondered what color the voice that came out between those red lips would be.
He wanted to know, he felt like he was going crazy.
When you live a life where you don’t know when you will die, the present is sometimes the most important value.
That was why he dared to go swimming at night, even though he knew it was crazy.
Of course, he wasn’t a stone head, so he didn’t swim the black sea alone from the beginning.
Cassion brought his second-in-command, Owen.
When he said he would go alone, Owen had no choice but to follow him.
The next day, however, Owen grabbed Cassion’s pants and held him back.
“I don’t care if you’re my Master, please, just stay still! You can’t do this, Master Cassion!”
He made so much noise that Cassion has to pretend to be asleep on the second day.
Then, after he fell asleep and it was a deeper dawn, he swam the ocean. The result was the same as the first day….
After three days of doing that, he was finally able to see her face.
And Cassion did not regret that crazy thing he did.
Even the expressionless face of the woman who was staring at him made his heart flutter terribly.
“What is your name? Please.”
He sighed tiredly, and whatever Roselyn said, he couldn’t make out a single thing.
Roselyn’s finger pointed to the window again. Her expression stiffened, and Cassion’s lips twitched in piqued surprise.
“I’ll go if you promise to go outside in the daylight tomorrow! No, have lunch with me.”
Roselyn frowned. Cassion, who thought she didn’t understand, pulled out all Hirusha words he knew and said,
[Tomorrow. Lunch, together]
He gestured with his hands and feet, but he couldn’t be sure Roselyn understood. He couldn’t read the expression on the woman’s face as she stared at him with a stiff face like a doll.
She might not understand….
But it didn’t matter. Because Cassion will definitely have lunch with the woman tomorrow.
[I don’t want to.]
“It seems like you said no………? No, Let’s eat together. What’s your favorite food? I’ll bring you everything. Oh, I have some wine I bought from Norssen the other day, would you like to drink it with me?”
[I won’t drink.]
“What? You don’t mind? I recommend it. Then I’ll have to look for the finest Einschultz cheese.”
It was arbitrary. Roselyn put her hand on her forehead and sighed.
She then slowly tapped her forehead with her fingers. It meant that she didn’t feel good.
Without realizing it, Cassion stole a look at Roselyn’s slender fingers.
There were many scars on her fingers, as if she had been treated badly. But they didn’t look rough because of her white skin. It was an interesting hand.
Cassion, who was distracted by her fingers, suddenly raised his head.
[Tomorrow, lunch, together]
Roselyn mimicked Cassion’s words verbatim. Cassion’s expression brightened.
“You mean we’ll eat together, right?”
Roselyn gave a light nod and raised a finger, pointing to the very window where Cassion had come in.
“Alright, I’ll leave. But we still have to have lunch together tomorrow.”
Whatever Cassion said, Roselyn opened the balcony window wide with her own hands.
Excitedly, Cassion waved his hand with a yahoo and jumped down the water pipe.
Roselyn stared coldly at Cassion’s black hair as it melted in the darkness then turned around.
The next day, Roselyn went outside to have lunch with him as promised.
“Hello, Master Cashion!”
“Hello, this is Tasha.”
“Welcome, Master Cassion!”
Cassion glared at the dozen or so people around his table and Roselyn’s with an absurd expression.
They stared at him without blinking, as if they were watching with both eyes wide open to see what he would do…
He had to admit he felt intrigued.
He was going to have lunch with a guest at his house, and everyone was looking at him.
Of course, it was probably because the guest was the mistress his brother had been hiding.
Anyway, in Cassion’s head, the situation did make any sense and it was irritating.
“….it’s so uncomfortable. How can I eat like this?”
He mumbled irritably, and Louie, who had been standing by, added without missing a beat.
“Oh, If you’re finished eating. Shall we clean up?”
He could sense that they wanted him to leave immediately.
Even more annoyed, Cassion cut the meat into pieces and chewed it very slowly.
“Why are you all so fussy? We’re sharing a meal together.”
“It’s bound to be a fuss. Who would break into your brother’s lady’s room at dawn? It’s not a big deal, but it’s a very barbaric and lascivious act.”
Satin’s voice was even colder than usual.
Cassion stared at Roselyn with a frown.
He thought they would hide her from him since they didn’t seem to say anything for the past two days.
“This should never happen again. I’ve decided to triple our defenses starting today.”
“It’s appalling. You’re putting more than fifty people to protect a single slave because of me?”
“Thanks to Master Cassion, we’ve identified a hole in our security so we need to reinforce it.”
“Satin, is my brother here now?”
Cassion asked angrily. Satin answered bluntly.
“No, he is not here.”
“Forgive me, but who is the master you must serve when my brother is not here?”
Satin answered without hesitation.
“Even if he is not here, there is only one whom I serve. I will carry out the orders he has left me with the highest priority.”
Cassion was even more annoyed.
It was always like this.
Tamon has it all. A healthy body, the fame of a hero, the king’s favor. And even the Krasis family and their loyal subjects.
Perhaps everything Cassion could have, Tamon had.
Even Cassion knew it was because of Tamon’s superior abilities.
Even if they were in the same place, Cassion wouldn’t have been able to have everything as much as Tamon did.
But knowing and accepting were two different things.
Unfortunately, unlike his calm and intelligent brother, he was a man with a much bigger heart.
Having crossed the threshold of death many times, he began to grow somewhat sensitive, giving meaning to the present, to what he had, and to everything he felt.
This was why, as in the past few days, he went blind and hid in his brother’s mistress’s bedroom.
Cassion stared at the woman in front of him who cut the meat and put it in her mouth.
Looking back, he had never seen anyone so beautiful in his life.
Her silvery hair was even more dazzling in the sunlight, and her purple eyes, which he couldn’t see clearly, shone like jewels.
His brother’s woman.
Because of this Hirushan that his brother, who has never had a scandal in his life, has closed down the annex and put his personal soldiers on guard.
Cassion laughed bitterly.
He tapped Roselyn’s plate with the fork he was holding to get her attention.
“I brought an interpreter today.”
As soon as he woke up in the morning, he looked around for someone who could speak Hirusha and brought him here.
At Cassion’s gesture, Owen dragged the person waiting behind him to the front.
Roselyn glanced at the one who was called interpreter, then looked at Satin again.
Sighing, Satin warned Cassion meekly.
“You are not allowed to bring outsiders.”
“Oh, I see. I’m sorry. I didn’t know that. I’ll be more careful next time.”
Cashion skipped roughly and called the interpreter to his side.
“Tell her my name is Cassion Krasis. And ask what her name is.”
The interpreter, who hesitated, told Roselyn what Cassion said. Roselyn grinned and put her fork down.
[Tell him I don’t want to tell him.]
