Come Here, Tyrant! - Chapter 10
Young Ejed didn’t even know what a cliché was. When he asked Robbie later, he replied that he was very worried.
As time passed, Robbie became strange with hysteria.
In the midst of a rage, Robbie started to have headaches, saying that he should not be frustrated with Ejed’s parents, and that he should live according to his order. It was madness.
Robbie said that he wished he could live safely, but it was very difficult.
While Ejed was grateful in many ways, he must solve his marriage matters by himself.
And now again.
The sound of a rattled bowl irritated his ears.
As he raised his gaze, he saw chefs who were pale white, like a tablecloth.
‘Ah… It’s already morning.’
Come to think of it, when someone asked him about a meal earlier, it seemed that he said he would come.
It was a reflexive response that came out of the idea that if he skipped meals twice in a row, the salary of the imperial chef might be reduced.
Ejed sighed because he had stayed up all night and walked.
But as soon as he made a bit of sound, the chefs froze.
“Yo–Your-Your majesty. Breakfast is served.”
Ejed smiled in gratitude. Then, a gasp echoed in the dining room.
“Sire! I have an elderly single mother…”
“… Get out.”
When Ejed uttered the order they wanted to hear the most, the chefs’ faces changed.
They hurried out of the dining room in case Ejed would change his mind.
Not even an ant was in the spacious banquet hall.
Ejed, who would be eating with the tableware by himself today, looked depressed.
Even with the dishes that filled the table, he seldom thought of wanting to eat.
He had never seen anyone start a conversation other than his parents and Robbie.
Everyone else would say something like ‘Yo-Your-Your Majesty’ or ‘Si-Si-Sire, I deserve death but please let me live’.
Anyone who talked to him would freeze, and if he smiled, they shuddered as if they had seen a grim reaper.
No, even breathing the same air was difficult. Those who stood alone with him were particularly fond of the command ‘get out.’
At first, he was resentful of the parents who gave birth to him.
However, he didn’t feel like that anymore.
It was thanks to a proud lady whom he accidentally met at church seven years ago.
Ejed’s cheeks turned red like the tomato on the plate as he ate the salad.
The day was still vivid.
It happened during the day when his eyesight worsened since he spent all night reading a novel featuring dragons.
Ejed who attended the church strained his eyes because he could not see the faces of the people. Then everyone trembled and evaded him like a plague.
That was a more severe reaction than usual, so Ejed was hurt inside.
‘I should have prepared my glasses in advance…’
Ejed, regretting everything, quietly avoided them and sneaked out to the terrace.
There, he encountered an unexpected situation.
[Idiot. Why are you crying?]
What on earth is this?
It was a voice more refreshing and clearer than Kessen’s tea, which was said to clear the mind.
As he hid behind a large flower pot and pulled his head out, where he saw a short girl.
She whispered, hugging a lady, who is much larger than herself.
This was an interesting sight.
[You’re dying because you are worth nothing? That’s not fair. If there is someone like you anywhere in the world, bring them to me. Between the ages of one to ten, if there is a child like you, I will give you all of my inheritance.]
[There isn’t one, right? Everyone is special. There’s only one of you and one of me.]
The girl had brown bobbed hair that shone like the moonlight and purple eyes that glittered like jewels. It was as if she was not from this world.
At that moment, for the first time in his life, he realized the true meaning of the expressions ‘pretty’ and ‘beautiful.’
A woman so pretty that he couldn’t take his eyes off her, and she was kind-hearted. Ejed listened to the warm story while sniffing his nose on the cold terrace.
As he listened, his heart jumped without hesitation, he grabbed his left chest with both hands and exhaled a soft breath.
He stayed up, even though he was nervous whether this sound might be heard by the two.
