Ten Ways to Get Dumped By the Tyrant - Chapter 1
Emperor Caliord was a tyrant.
At age seventeen, he slaughtered the emperor and empress and set claim to the throne by killing all his brothers.
The empire had hoards of people who shed blood and tears for the numerous evil misdeeds he committed.
Even so, he was the male lead.
The book was titled 〈The Deathly Life of the Tyrant〉 and was a romance fantasy novel.
In the book, a woman, who lost her lover to the tyrant, fell in love with the tyrant.
Unlike the youthful, energetic title of the book, the beginning of the story was somewhat twisted.
But after many twists and turns, the story finally reached a happy ending.
The tyrant loved her so much that he married her and gave her the country. He became a peaceful, good ruler, a stark contrast to his previous reputation.
Because the female lead was firm and headstrong, the tyrant relented to all her requests.
Thus, only his closest associates knew about his private life, and none of them would dare to reveal this secret.
“What is the point of a novel with a happy ending?”
The tyrant turned over a new leaf at the end of the original book.
“What can be worse than a male lead who is only kind to the female lead?”
The day she turned 20, she died and crossed over into the novel.
She became that tyrant’s fiance: Scarlett Armand.
She loved the tyrant so much that she became the villain who tormented the empress and died at the tyrant’s hands.
Did that happen in the middle of the original story?
“…Ah, what should I do?”
She let out a soft sigh.
“This is driving me crazy.”
She racked her brain for a solution, but she failed to come up with one on the spot.
The tyrant was ruthless and merciless. She couldn’t possibly avoid all her death flags.
The tyrant, Charlemagne Caliord, treated everyone equally. It didn’t matter who you were; if you stood in his way, he’d kill you without mercy.
“He wouldn’t treat other humans as ‘people’ unless they were a genius like him.”
He treated neither his parents nor his brothers as blood relatives.
As for the people who supported him? Well, he wasn’t the type to kill for fun or out of impulse.
However, if someone approached too close, they’d better be careful not to be mistaken for an assassin.
Status was irrelevant to him, and he only treated six of his closest friends and aides as real ‘human’ beings.
“They’re all the same.”
Everyone had paid attention to the voices of the geniuses since they were young. Only they were qualified to interact with the tyrant.
The tyrant was bestowed the title of the youngest swordmaster and the youngest sage.
“Since the sword is a magic sword, he didn’t have to exert much of his magic to utilize it.”
It was hard to understand how a violent man like him became a sage.
She endured the humiliation and asked her family members, who didn’t even care to treat her like a lady of the house, about the tyrant.
The answers she received made her speechless.
“That’s because not many people know about his personality. Rather they only know about his accomplishments.”
What? In other words, personality didn’t matter to the people?!
It seemed like she couldn’t expect much out of the tyrant’s personality.
She drew a line on the paper as she tried to develop solutions to her current dilemma.
She sighed and looked at the name written on the top of the paper.
It was the name of the body she currently possessed; it belonged to a villainess.
In the original plot, many characters interfered with the relationship between Emperor Charlemagne and Empress Cheryl.
Scarlett was one of the many villains, and she’d played the role for quite some time.
