"Ysmael! I'll kill you! You son of a bitch!"
Everyone inside the room was silent as they knelt in front of the presence of the king. As his anger shot up, so as his mana thus made everyone inside the room tremble.
A loud crash was once again heard. Afterward, they heard the loud breath of King Vicente IX.
Silence engulfed the whole room until the king broke it himself.
"If any of you could eliminate the Duke of Ivrea, I would, without a doubt, pass the crown to any of you."
The princes and princesses that were inside the room were shocked by the declaration of their Imperial Father. No, it wasn't a declaration anymore. It was more of an ultimatum!
"But of course, that wasn't an easy feat." The king continued, "That's why his daughter was there, wasn't it?"
Silence once again ensued. But it was broken down when the Second Prince answered.
Minerva didn't know how to ask her father about this. Where should she start?Before she could open her mouth, Alvin, who silently left the study room earlier, knocked on the door."Your Grace, the Crown Prince asked for an audience."Minerva widened her eyes in surprise. The Crown Prince was here? Why was he here of all places?She glanced at her father whose left brow was arched."Escort him to the reception room.""Yes, Your Grace."Santi stood up with Minerva in his arms. She thought that he'd leave but she didn't know that her father would take her to the reception room.Logan, who calmly sat inside the reception room, sipped the tea that Alvin brewed. He glanced at the door when he noticed some slight movements. Then, the door was opened and Santi, with his daughter in his arms, went inside."This subject g
Minerva glimpsed at the forest-like in front of her. However, she could not see anything aside from some trees as the area was covered with thick mist.She glanced at her father who nonchalantly walked into the forest. Despite the thick mist, it seemed that her father knew which direction to go.As the both of them were silent on the entire walk, Minerva furrowed her brows as she recalled how almost nobody could be seen while they were on their way here.Right, she remembered that Shirley mentioned that there was a specific part of this estate that was forbidden from everyone. Even Alvin and Cassie didn't have an idea of what was inside this 'forbidden place'.Shirley mentioned that two accidents happened inside this estate. And these two were connected to the forbidden place.These two people, who tried to trespass the forbidden place, were found dead while their corpses laid on the
Minerva swallowed when she saw the books that her father placed on the desk in front of her. She glanced at him but she shrunk her neck when she saw his stern face.“This was the language that was been used here. For now, we could communicate with each other as I used magic spell despite our language barrier. However, it would be different thing if your body was finally born. Thus, you need to learn our language early. In this way, you could somehow understand what the people around you say.” Santi explained to his daughter.“Okay…” Minerva answered in a small voice.Santi softened his expression and patted her head, “I don’t want you to had difficulty to adjust in this world. Hence, as we waited for your body to be born, I wanted you to prepare.”“I understand, daddy.”He smiled and pinched her nose, “It’s good that you know.”Minerva rubbed her eyes as she stare
“Hey, Kristofer, you didn’t call just to say those, right?” Santi asked. The man on the other line, which was Kristofer, hummed in agreement.“Yeah, I would like to ask Little Minnie about the gift that she wanted to receive. I didn’t want to repeat about what happened on Serena’s birthday.”When he mentioned about Serena’s birthday, Maureen couldn’t help but to laugh. She did not know what Kristofer gifted Serena. All she knew was that Serena cried so hard when she saw the gift and left early together with Constance. Kristofer was ashamed of what happened and Lorenzo, as a jerk that he was, wouldn’t stop to tease him about it. He only stopped when Constance was pissed until she hit him.“Baby, your Uncle Kristofer asked about the gift that you wanted. Did you have something on your mind?” Maureen asked Minerva in her soft voice.Minerva grasped her Aunt Maureen’s clothes as she
The Azenla Empire was thrown into chaos when they heard the news that on the southwest of the Southern Region, the large mine of a mana stone that was owned by the Second Prince’s faction exploded. The only thing that left was a large pit that was covered with purplish-black flames. This was the first time in the history that they ever saw this type of flame. Furthermore, the heat that the flame produced was too strong that even the five archmages that the emperor dispatched could only stood on the distance of five hundred yards. If they tried to go further, the barrier that they covered on themselves would be shattered and they would surely feel the strong heat. Emperor Vicente IX was extremely angry of what happened. Everyone knew the importance of the mine. It not only disrupted the distribution of the mana stones across the empire and the neighbor kingdoms, it also greatly affected the economy of the empire. The emperor made an imperial order to investigate thoro
Due to the chaos of the emperor, the Gera Empire lost a ruler. Some nobles wanted to step up and usurp the throne however, Juan Miguel couldn’t find any decent from them. After what the late emperor did, the empire needed a ruler that could help to stabilize the nation. As Juan Miguel pondered on who to would be the next ruler, a grand duke openly suggested Juan Miguel as the new emperor. His suggestion shocked not only the nobles but also the commoners. The grand duke even added that if the Halen Empire−the empire that the Empress Dowager Adira governed, could reach such heights and be prospered, why couldn’t their Gera Empire? To make it short, after a debacle, it ended on Juan Miguel as the new emperor of the Gera Empire. “So, what now? Did you only plan to attack the mine of mana stones?” Lorenzo curiously asked. Santi’s left brow arched. “It depends on them. If they still had the energy to at
The Second Prince tried to look somewhere. He already lost his face due to the dragon that suddenly attacked the Southern Region. He needed to redeem himself to prove to the nobles that even if he wasn't the Crown Prince, he was more than worthy to be the next Emperor. He clenched his fist. If Logan died that time, he should've become the Crown Prince now. Damn this tradition! The position of the Crown Prince was something that he coveted for so long. When Leno died, the Marquis of Dampierre was the one who brought up the tradition. As long as the First Empress had a child, he or she would be the one that would be titled as the Crown Prince. Hence, even if Logan was the Twelfth Prince, he was still given the title of the Crown Prince despite him being comatose at that time. The Second Prince already tried different ways to eliminate the Crown Prince. Even his Imperial Mother the Second Empress dispatched some to ass
"What happened?"Minerva tried to restrain her cry when she heard her father's voice. She clutched her stomached and bit her lips but the pain was too severe."Your Grace, the Little Miss just ate leisurely a while ago. However, she suddenly groaned loudly and clutched her stomach as she cried hard. This servant already called for a physician but the Little Miss would not listen to the physician's instruction. She would do nothing but continue to cry." She heard Julia explained. Nevertheless, Minerva did not pay her any heed.Just as she focused to forcefully restrain her sobs despite the pain, she felt that she had been carried. When she glanced at who was the one who carried her, she saw her father who was now frowning.She tightly clutched herself and wanted to say something but only a sob came out. Her father pursed his lips and hugged her as he caressed her back as if to comfort her.
