Come Here, Tyrant! - Chapter 55
On the other hand, the chief of staff touched his lips to see what he had to do with Doher. Choosing his words, he asked secretly.
“Did you know the reason for His Majesty’s change of heart?”
The chief, who has been living in the imperial palace for a long time, is definitely not the same as Fizz.
Those old eyes were filled with doubts. The Emperor made changes, such as ordering a bright series of clothes that he had not worn before.
That was a shock to everyone.
“Well, I do not know.”
‘For now, it’s a secret.’
Doher replied brilliantly.
As he sat on the chair by the desk in an upright position, Ejed’s head went down.
He focused his eyes in the gold-rimmed glasses.
Before him was a confession gift that should not be messed up!
1. Diamond Ring
2. Sanel Designer Products
3. Jewelry Necklace
Now, with his finger, he picked up the prints one by one and fell into his thoughts.
‘I got the ring, ordered Sanel, got the necklace… If I take it all to the ball, it will be tedious, so I should only bring the most important letter and ring.’
There was a red ring case on the desk.
Now, he carefully opened the ring case.
A ring made of red diamonds, the national treasure of Porcaus, sparkled brightly.
A treasure made for the mistress of the royal family from generation to generation.
[Ejed, give it to someone who you are willing to give your life.]
Ejed, who closed the ring case, smiled.
‘Such a person… There is only one in the entire world.’
Now he had a perfect plan. He will dance a song with Annie and first reveal his identity.
And after that, it was to show his heart, even a little. Even if it’s not marriage, he should show the sincerity of his love for her.
Ejed approached the mirror and spoke with clumsy lips.
“My Lady, may have the honor to be with you.”
As soon as he said these words, why did even the air feel awkward?
Now, while struggling, Ejed shook his head.
‘Let’s relax. People won’t be able to recognize me anyway because I will wear a mask.’
Besides, hadn’t he already talked to Annie while wearing a mask or hat? It will certainly have a learning effect after repeating it a few times.
Ejed struggled to think positively.
‘… You can do it well. The book said that you can change the atmosphere with a social dance.’
With both hands in the air, Ejed began to dance as if he had a partner in front of him. As an emperor who had received the best education, his dance skills were excellent.
The lights didn’t go out until late in his bedroom.
As time passed, it soon became the day of the ball.
The Imperial designer created the perfect robe according to Ejed’s order. Like the wings of a swan, the white suit is designed to reveal his tall height and robust figure.
However, in the dressing room, Ejed could hardly smile.
‘… Isn’t it a little weird?’
He was always wearing only black clothes, so it felt awkward to change his style completely. He either brushed off his sleeves for no reason or stretched out his arms to glance at the mirror.
It was as uncomfortable as putting on someone else’s clothes.
‘Shall I change my clothes now…’
Ejed, who was troubled, touched the white mask on the table. Then Ejed, who inadvertently raised his head, found a clock on the wall.
The second hand of the clock was pointing exactly at midnight. Ejed’s white shoes moved quickly.
No one recognized Ejed, who arrived at the ballroom because he wore a mask and because he has never been to such a place due to his dislike for crowded areas.
When a tall and handsome man dressed in white glided in like snow, many women’s eyes were drawn. Now, only the eyes inside the white searched eagerly around.
‘Annie must have come. Where…’
At that moment, the world stopped.
Except for Annie, standing at an angle against the red wall, he felt nothing.
He didn’t wear glasses, but he could see Annie well.
Annie, who was talking to her tall maid, was pretty. Her mask was of the same color as her forsythia-colored dress, and her high enamel shoes, and even the thin necklace on her neck looked vivid in Ejed’s eyes.
Both of his hardened hands went into the suit top. Ejed, who had been fiddling with the stiff letter and the ring case several times, exhaled a heavy breath.
‘… Let’s go.’
The white shoes moved toward a woman.
As he got close, he walked faster and faster.
