can trash fall in love?

edited August 9 in Fanfiction
It is a first story I write. Hope you enjoy the passionate version of Cale Henituse.
I'm Brazilian, and I don't write in English. Hahahaha Hope you can read the translation.



Cale arrived in Henituse territory after winning the battle against the empire. His enemy, Arm, had not yet been completely vanquished. But you could at least rest for a while.

"Oh, good of you to be back."

Violam went to receive Cale at the entrance of the residence.

• Human, this is weird. There is something going on here.

Cale realized they were acting weird, Violam had never come to greet him before, the employees were euphoric.

- It's all right? Did you have a good trip?

- Yes, thanks Violam, the trip was exhausting ..

Before finishing Violam interrupted Cale.

- Oh how wonderful, yes. Very good. Let's sit down and have some tea, come on honey.

Cale knitted his eyebrows lightly, now he was sure. Violan was preparing something to tell him, and she was sure she wouldn't like to hear it.

Violan snapped her tongue with satisfaction after taking a sip of hot tea and setting the cup on the table. Cale waited in disgust for the interception.

- Cale honey, I know we didn't have a good start, but I'm proud of how you grew up in the last few years. I should have known the Earl and I were worried about your future.

Violan paused, looked Cale in the eye with affection, and then let out a little laugh. Cale swallowed a sigh and kept his face serene.

- As the Kingdom hero and commander of the Crown Prince's troops, you have been recognized by the citizens and garnered much attention from society. Cale, it's past time to give me a daughter-in-law.

'What? daughter-in-law, is this a wife?

Cale widened his eyes and opened his mouth slightly, not expecting this. His surprise was stamped on her face, there was no hiding it after that statement.

- Why the surprise? You should have known by now that you were getting married. I talked to his father and he also agrees with my thoughts. I will not make it difficult for you dear, you can choose the woman you will marry.

Violan smiled sweetly as she waited for Cale to process the information.

Cale opened and closed his mouth as his expression tightened.

"What if I don't want to get married?"

The smile widened, but it didn't reach his eyes that shone coldly when he answered:

- Marriage is not an option but a certainty. You are the firstborn of the Henituse family, it is your obligation to give us heirs.I was worried about not getting a good start when you were acting so out of control. But now you have become the second largest party after the Crown Prince. It will not be difficult to find a suitable wife.

‘Arg, this will ruin my plans for a peaceful life.’

• Human this is so cool! You can leave with the big and powerful Raon Miru, I will find the perfect partner for you.

Cale ignored the voice of the little dragon and before he could answer, the Count appeared at the door.
Sensing the tense atmosphere, the Count sighed, sat quietly beside Violan, and poured himself tea.

Violam made eye contact with her husband who captured the situation in a wordless conversation with a lot of understanding.

Cale closed the bedroom door and sighed loudly.


End of the first chapter.



‘Why did things get like this?’

Recalling the conversation with his father, Cale felt that fate was cruel. His brother Balen has been diagnosed with a curable disease that prevents him from having children. Lilith is a woman and her descendants will bear her husband's name.

‘Ah
Cale sighed again.

//Cale, I've always allowed you the freedom to come and go and make your own decisions as you see fit. However, this time I ask you to listen to your Father, the family is the most important thing, the shield defends the family. I hope you can protect our lineage.//

A burden was thrown on Cale's shoulders. Was all that struggle to secure Kingdom peace and your own peace in vain? An even greater calamity fell upon me?

• Human since violan gave you a month to find your partner, are we traveling?

Cale stared at the black dragon who settled with him on the couch.

"Raon, do you understand what marriage is?"

The little dragon jumped in the angry air.

• Is human doubting my intelligence? Of course I know. You will grow your family. This is going to be very good.

"What if she doesn't accept living with a dragon?"

• Who wouldn't want to live with the great Raon Miru! Besides, your partner must be as good a human as you.

Cale smiled, could not argue with this dragon


Cale did not give up his ambition to live a peaceful life. He would fix Balen's situation when possible. By then it would curl the stepmother.

However, Cale did not count on Mother's cunning. The whole Kingdom received word that the Henituse heir was looking for a bride. Within hours the property was full of greedy suitors, escorts, and nobles.

Cale stared thunderstruck at his bedroom window.

- Violan, you really drive me crazy.

Raon I'll leave a message for the Count, let's teleport to Hallis Vilage.

• Right human.

Raon quickly swallowed the steak he was eating and prepared to transport Cale. Within the forest of darkness these mad matchmakers could not reach them.

Two days later Cale was comfortably in a chair eating grapes while watching the training of the wolf children when he received a video broadcast from Count Deruth. On the first day the transmitter kept flashing receiving messages. But today it was calm. The message alert broke the stillness of the moment.

- Raon.

• Yes human, connecting.

- Dad

- Cale, sorry for what Violan did. But think what she did thinking of helping you. She's hurt that you left without seeing anyone.

Cale was still sitting in his very relaxed chair. He did not regret running away. But I didn't blame the stepmother.

- Yes I understand . But I refuse your help.

- very well. You still have time to submit a candidate. Let's put this conversation aside for now. I want you to come to the Henituse residence to discuss Muller's new project with the Viscountess of Ubarr.

- 'Hm, I don't remember asking for a new project. '

- never mind. I will go next.

- I'll see you soon.

The Count turned off the transmission. Cale continued to stare into the empty space, now filled with the black dragon's face.

• Human will we teleport?

-No, let's go by carriage, I want to observe how the environment is.

Of course Cale wanted to check if there were maidens camped on the way. Would it be a safe route? Not to attract glances they traveled with an anonymous and discreet carriage.


End of the second chapter.


At Henituse residence the lady of Ubarr was waiting for Cale's arrival.

"Very good to see you are healthy, young Master Cale."

- is very kind Madam. I am flattered by your visit. Let's go in for a drink while we discuss the subject that brought it.

Cale was acting as the Kingdom Hero, benevolent and kind. The viscountess was glad to have started her business with the Henituse family before her fame grew.

A while after discussing the new project, the Count and the Lady of Ubarr would drink and talk.

- Cale, Ubarr's daughter came along too, she's in the next room. She is a good candidate. I didn't call her before so as not to upset him. But I hope you talk a little with the girl to keep the good terms.

The Count confided in a whisper for Cale to hear, then continued walking with the lady of Ubarr to another room.

Cale sighed and frowned. 'Should I run away again?'

Cale made up his mind and entered the room to receive the young lady.

- Young Amiru, long time no see.

Miss Amiru was not beautiful or ugly, she had a common and unflattering countenance. She dropped the cup of tea to her lips on the table and stared in surprise at the young man's sudden arrival. He got up quickly and greeted him.

- Cale-nim. Long time indeed. I'm glad you took the time to meet me.

Cale nodded and looked skeptical at the girl.

- Amiru-nim, what brings you here?

Cale did not curl up, and without superfluous words began the discussion by sitting on the adjoining couch, pouring himself tea and dessert.

Realizing the nobleman's attitude, Amiru sat back down. She looked around as if searching for something or was afraid to be heard, and then changed her expression and personality. Formerly, she looked like the typical serene and restrained noble lady.
The faint smile turned into a wide, tricky smile, her clear eyes cold and sharp. The straight back adjusted to the couch comfortably as if at home.

- Cale-nim doesn't hit the bush at all. So let's go to business.

Cale knit his eyebrows lightly and waited. A sudden change. 'I didn't expect to see another personality.'

- I will be your wife.

- How much confidence, it seems that is already decided.

The corner of Cale's lips lifted slowly as he let out a muchocho.

"You will definitely marry me. Because my proposal is very good.

Amiru threw a stack of papers at Cale as she stated with conviction. Cale picked up the papers and looked around.

Continuing to savor the grapes, the young girl did not have to look at Cale, for she was sure of a signed agreement.

Cale exhaled deeply. 'The terms are good, she won't disturb me after marriage, give me the freedom to keep doing what I want, not be a troubled wife who demands attendance at society events, nor will she demand me to be a husband, like a wife in love and honey. Anyway a merely political marriage.'

- Really tempting, girl Amiru.

But Cale wasn't convinced, activating his dominant aura enough to scare her a little, he exclaimed as he bent over his bent knees:

What would be the benefit to you of this kind of marriage? Status? I think not.

Amiru stopped smiling immediately, her hands shaking slightly, as well as her eyes. Such a discreet gesture that it almost went unnoticed. Recovering quickly, she replied:

- freedom.

- As?

Cale was surprised at how little effect the dominant aura had on her, and couldn't help but glance at the girl in front of him for her answer.

- Cale, I need freedom too. I don't need your status and I don't want to demand your love. I like the work I do in the territory of Ubarr, the commerce is fascinating. But I have little freedom to act. I need not tell you that Ubarr's successor will be my husband.

Cale understood immediately. The husband was not going to accept his work being performed by a wife, as a noble lady is doomed to home affairs and children. Of course, for most noble men it would be so. Not your case of course.

"You are young and handsome, Cale-nim. Don't worry, I'm not flirting, it's facts. My destiny was to marry an old man with money. My parents love me, but the rules of society speak louder to them.

Amiru smiled mischievously.

- did you read the last closure of the contract?

-hum, the last ..?

    -hum, the last..?

    Cale looked back at the papers in his hand, widened his eyes and stared at the young girl before a shimmer of understanding reached his eyes.

    - Yes. It's one of the requirements. I want the wedding night to be effected. With everything I have entitlement as the new wife.

    ‘But of course, your fox. Without it the marriage could easily be broken off. It's a way to keep me from going back. ‘

    "If I have to sleep with a man, I hope it's at least pretty. I also hope to have good memories of the moment. It's my body after all. I wish it to be romantic. Anxious, Cale nim?

    Amiru continued to smile with malice. ‘Anxious my ass' this is going to be hard. At least it was the best proposal I have received so far.

    - You will have one week to decide. Until then I will wait in the territory of Ubarr. See you later.

    Amiru stood up, ending the conversation.

    • She reminds me of the Crown Prince.

    "Hm, would she be an elf in disguise?"

    • Without the part of the elf. Sounds like a good person. She wants to help you human. We won't have to look for a good person anymore.

    Ahhh, Cale sighed and ignored the small child floating around excitedly.

    Returning to his room Cale received Ron, who brought him a glass of lemonade. Taking a sour drink, she snapped her tongue and turned to the benign butler.

    Ron.

    - Yes Young master nim.

    - Let's go to the territory of Ubarr. Call beacrox, I need some good wine and good takeaway food.

    • Human will we steal something?

    Miaww. The little cat rubbed itself on Cale's legs in agreement with the little black dragon. Miaww, Hong shook his head in disapproval. Cale smiled mysteriously and headed for the door.

    Peeeeee

    • A call. I will connect.

    Before getting out they received a call from Super Rock Village.

    - Cale - nim, how are the meetings going for the future bride Henituse?

    Cale clicked his tongue. Rosalyn was enjoying this mess about the wedding.

    "Wizard-nim, you say that because you already got rid of the social obligation when you left Breck."
    Haha ha.

    - sorry, I didn't mean to mock. I called you for something important.

    'I didn't want my ass' your eyes are still laughing.

    - Cale nim, will you marry me?

    "I think we're done with the jokes, don't you?"

    Cale choked on the redheaded mage's question. And showed a skeptical expression.

    • Human is not a bad idea either, we already know Rosalyn and she is very nice and powerful.

    - I'm serious. I consider you a good friend Cale min. Besides, I owe you a lot for the good you did to me. I know you like times of peace and quiet ... Listen, I think marriage is a serious thing, don't just marry to please your parents. You are a good person.

    - calm down princess nim, I would never do something I don't want. Do not worry. I am flattered by the offer but will have to decline. I am happy to have such reliable companions.

    Rosalyn closed her mouth and nodded.

    - Very well then. If you need me feel free to ask.

    Piuuu

    The display has been turned off. Cale felt warm inside. It's great to have people by your side for a change.



    end of the fourth chapter


  • In the territory of Ubarr the sound of the waves crashing on the beach filled Cale's carriage.

    • Human let's call Amiru nim and accept the marriage.

    - not. We came to investigate. Let's not go see Amiru.

    In the inn Cale entered the best room and settled in the comfortable armchair.

    "Ron, is the information I asked for ready?"

    The benign butler approached and faced the young man sitting surrounded by the cat children and the little dragon on his lap.

    - Forgive young master, the requested information is being collected. I believe that tomorrow I will have in hand.

    - OK, bring me something to drink, I'm thirsty.

    - Yes, young master.

    Amiru nim was really confident, I entered Ubarr territory under general knowledge, but the girl didn't come running to meet me. 'She's waiting for my initiative.

    'Hm'. Cale's lips curved as he caressed the black dragon.

    • Human you have that smile again. Are we going to steal something yet?


    As the night curtain fell two shadows went unnoticed between Ubarr's houses. Near the home of local lord Cale appeared wearing a black spy suit.

    - Raon where is young Amiru's room?

    • Upper floor second window from left.

    - lets go in.

    Cale used the power of the wind with an impulse and landed softly on the windowsill.

    Click

    Raon smashed the latch on the window that opened with a muffled noise.

    • Human what exactly are we looking for?

    - Look for a small notebook. Probably well hidden.

    Amiru's diary. To be sure of the girl's intentions, nothing more practical than to have her deep thoughts in hand. It seemed so wrong to read something so intimate and personal. But right now that mattered little. Cale wanted assurances of a peaceful marriage, just her word wasn't enough.

    • I found it human. It's in a small trapdoor under the dresser chair.

    Cale watched the young lady softly resonate in her bed in the center of the room, and noiselessly headed for the dressing table. The chair was lifted and taken out of the way. On the floor could be seen a discreet gap that with a small object could be removed.

    Riiiich

    The floor creaked as the lid was lifted.

    Hmmm

    Amiru moaned on the bed and shifted on the covers. Cale caught his breath and watched tensely as the girl went back to sleep.

    • I thought she would wake up now. Hahaha.

    Cale could feel the black dragon's breath on his back and his wings fluttering in the air.

    - I got the content, let's go.

    Whispering to the little one, Cale replaced the trapdoor lid and left the room.

    In the inn a black-clad figure stepped through the rooftop window levitating in the wind.

    Cale changed his spy suit and sat on the bed to open the looted small package.

    Inside the cloth bag was a tastefully carved wooden chest. The young man opened the lid of the trunk and took out two notebooks and several drawn sheets.

    'That is...

    • Human This is amazing. Amiru really admires you. I like her more now. You should keep drawings of what I like in my piggy bank. Is a good idea. A treasure must be kept well.

    On the leaves were several portraits, all of the same man in different situations, displaying exceptional beauty and brilliance.

    Cale's face was hidden under his hair, a close look could see the intensifying blush.

    ‘It's my photos ..‘

    Cale took a leaf in his hands and couldn't help thinking it was someone else. His turned face looked into the void and had the expression of the priest who looked at the sick. It's me ... but I'm not .. 'Cale Henituse was very handsome and sophisticated, Kim Rok Soo was happy to get that countenance. But he had never realized how other people saw him. 'Amazing.. '

    Amiru was able to convey deep feelings only with sketched images. Full face or full body, he even had an image of Cale wearing the indestructible shield.

    Cale's teeth clenched as he deposited the images back in the chest and held the black cover notebook with gold trim in his hands.

    * Amiru *

    The owner's name was visible when Cale hesitantly opened the diary to read. ‘Should I keep this up? I'm apprehensive. ’

    The curiosity was greater and the content was discourse to be then loudly closed. Cale covered his face with trembling hands and felt his heart pounding.


    End of the fifth chapter.
  • edited August 12
    ‘Always ... since always .. really Amiru, you ..‘

    They have known each other since childhood. The northeast territory never had a ruler. The factions have always been in contact with each other and living with Ubarr is old. Amiru already loved me back then.

    // I had a horrible nightmare today. I'm sure it was due to my recurring sadness. I learned from my dad's best trader to never express his true thoughts for the success of a transaction. Dad and mom don't know about my love for Cale. They will never allow a marriage proposal from the Count's family trash. Ignorant, he is a good person. No one will understand. I know. Only I know why. Should I give up on Ubarr and run away with him? What can i do? I'm exhausted, a weak and powerless woman. What can I do..'//

    Cale swallowed hard as he remembered the written words. ‘Why don't I remember Amiru as a child?’ Cale's memories are confused by forcing the memory.

    Cale picked up the other notebook with a simple, crumpled. Untitled. Flipping through lightly, he realized it was Amiru's business experiences, his work notes, informant secrets, sales contacts, and so on.

    I need some air.

    Cale went to the open window, took a deep breath of the night air. He visualized the stars shining in the sky and the sound of the night birds.

    • Human aren't you happy?

    'I'm happy? I couldn't tell. It is more like a feeling of self satisfaction. Who is not happy to have a woman who looks so good.' Kim Rok Soo has never had an admirer or lover. ‘Actually, I'm scared. I prefer to deal with what I know and avoid the unknown. After all, I am a cowardly man who fears pain. '

    Cale sighed and turned inward. the notebook on the bed was heavy in his eyes, but he still took it with cold hands to start reading again.

    / /my goodness, oh my goodness. I couldn't believe my eyes. Cale was splendid in the meeting of the nobles with the crown prince. Very restrained and polite. It looked like someone else. I was very happy when I saw him, but I didn't expect him to approach me to whisper in my ear. When I felt hot breath my heart pounded, I thought I would be kissed, I almost dropped my mask. I took a deep breath to focus on what I was saying ... / .. I shouldn't be feeling happy and excited about your approach, not when you risked saving everyone. Young Silver Light. Hmm haha. Beautiful . Simply incredible. I need to draw this. My heart clenched when I saw him pale leaning on Eric. Luckily he was fine. My dear has an elegant tongue like the prince, he deceived everyone with a weak and humble image. It makes me excited. It's like when I catch a salesman trying to fool me with a high-priced product.//

    ‘I prefer not to remember the nasty nickname. Smart girl, apparently should not be underestimated. Crazy, it reminds me of the Holy Maiden's bloodlust. '

    Cale shivered.

    'I can see the little woman laughing loudly with Victoria in a trade'.

    / I discovered a potential rival that day. A beautiful redhead standing beside Cale. The princess of the Breck Kingdom. A powerful magician. I want to cry because .... /

    ‘Humm jealous? Very sweet, I don't want to see '. Cale skipped the reading to the last page written.

    /I'm freaking out. I've lost count of how many bottles of liquor I've dried in the last hour. I don't get drunk easily, I trained hard not to embarrass Cale. But today I wanted to get drunk. I received the news that Cale is looking for a bride, of course that is the heir obligations of the Henituse. My sources tell me he ran away. I understand your concerns. How can I use this to be the chosen one? I broke my head and I haven't got a good idea yet ... / ... / I can't believe I did it. I almost lost everything. The idea of ​​using muller's designs to get me closer worked. Everything was going as planned .. but what was that? My mind went blank, Kaleim suddenly became bigger and more seductive, his eyes caressed my skin, when he spoke his voice rumbled in my being as if his lips were in direct contact with my skin ... ahh I get goose bumps only to remember. I managed to maintain the posture with all my effort. Am I a pervert? Why did I feel so hot at a casual gesture? /

    ‘Yes, perverted. Seductive look? Since when did I do something like this? ’

    Cale grunted, hiding his flushed face again under his hands.

    Ahhh 'got tired of it.'

    -Raon take back the package where we met him.

    • Right human. I am very fast and silent. No one will notice that it's gone.

    The little dragon took the package and before turning invisible he squinted at Cale, but said nothing more and left.

    End of the sixth chapter.
  • Ron woke up Cale in the morning for breakfast with his usual glass of lemonade.

    - Young master neem, your bath is ready. Would you like to have breakfast first?

    'Arg, sour.'

    - the shower first. You can go out.

    It was boring. He didn't sleep well at night thinking about Amiru's proposal.

    After the relaxing bath called the benevolent butler.

    "Ron call Miss Amiru to share breakfast."

    - Yes, young master neem. Ah before you forget it, here is the requested information.

    Ron handed over a briefcase and went after the young lady. Cale opened the folder and found what he was looking for. Amiru never showed his true personality. People who see her, even her parents, know only the noble and educated woman. Her merchant face was known only to a group she secretly managed from her family.

    Cale smiled with the corner of his lips raised.

    'I will make other gains through this contract. but it will be fun to see how far she goes with this disguise. How long can you hide your passion? '

    Raon lying on the couch raised his head and watched Cale from across the room. What is this human trying to do? 'I don't understand, he's obsessed.'


    At breakfast Amiru sat quietly before greeting the young man in front of him.

    - thanks for the invitation Cale-nim. Have you thought about our conversation?

    - calm down girl Amiru nim. Let's taste the cuisine of my chef Beacrox. I know you will like it.

    Amiru was not shaken by the answer and did what was asked with serenity.

    Cale watched the girl out of the corner of her eye as she sipped tea. ‘It doesn't even look like a woman in love, very embarrassed. Should I start teasing her? ’

    - try this one here. Say ah ..

    Cale grinned a piece of cake with his fork and waited for the young woman to open her mouth to eat it. "I read in a book once women are embarrassed but happy to be fed by crush."

    - Thanks Cale nim, but you don't have to give me a mouth next time. I know how to eat by myself.

    Amiru bit the cake offered normally. Leaving Cale disappointed.

    - Ahh, how delicious. I'm full. Give my thanks to the chef.

    Cale looked into Amiru's pleased face and gave a fake cough.

    - good. Now that you're satisfied, let's talk.

    - Clear. What have you decided?

    "I will accept your offer, Miss Amiru." But first I want to enjoy my stay in Ubarr. You will keep me company. Do not tell anyone my decision. Let's keep it confidential for now.

    Amiru swallowed hard as she stared at Cale. I wanted to get your approval. And now that he could not believe it. Of course Cale wanted to test her during this time in Ubarr, so it wasn't time to sing Victoria.

    - well let's start the tour. I want to know the places I haven't seen yet.

    Cale stood toward Amiru who was turning to leave.

    - wait a minute ... here .. ready .. much better.

    Cale took the hand of the young lady who turned abruptly. The handkerchief in Cale's hand gently wiped the cake-soiled girl's cheek.
    At Cale's mischievous smile, Amiru was embarrassed and turned around quickly.

    - Hmm.

    Cale hid a wider smile, still thinking it was fun.



    end of the seventh chapter.
  • For the remainder of the month Cale followed Amiru everywhere. He met other different villages and foods. The girl knew of her preferences and avoided people who knew the young Silver Light. They entered the small islands near the coast to visit caves and uninhabited beaches. Amiru did not understand Cale's interest in these islands, but followed the script.

    Cale was looking for ways to tease her with the slightest gestures. But he was unsuccessful in revealing it.

    ‘Did that damn diary give me false information? I got tired of this cat and mouse game. '

    Cale was exasperated. The days spent together were pleasant and did not bring torment. Today being the last day with Amiru.

    The sun was already far away on the horizon falling for the night to rise. They were on the cliff "sound of the wind", could see in the sea where the swirls no longer exist.

    "Tomorrow I will return to Henituse territory."

    'Arg, what a tiring climb. Without the sound of the wind it gets harder. '
    Cale was right behind Amiru, who cheerfully jumped trying to catch a butterfly.

    Hahahaha

    - so let's enjoy this beautiful sunset as parting. Come brought wine.

    Amiru spread a towel over the grass and felt the wind shake her hair. Cale was distracted thinking of his departure when he stood in place with his eyes widening.

    In the light of dawn Amiru's green hair had a reflection that exalted her features. Her expression was pleasant and a faint smile played on her bright lips as she arranged the snack. The overall picture of the scene under Cale's eyes exploded in warm colors and sensations. But it only lasted a minute. Cale blinked and recovered to sit with his face tied.

    They ate and drank in silence watching the rough sea darkening as the sun went down. The dark night soon flashed in a myriad of stars and sounds of nocturnal animals.

    - finished your young wine Amiru? So let's go.

    - Wait Cale, let me finish putting the towel ..

    Cale was for some reason very upset. And began to walk without turning around. Amiru rushed to catch up with him and as it was dark and fast walking he tripped over a rock.

    - Ahhh

    - Amiru nim.

    Cale turned just in time to see her fall. He hurried to catch her but also tripped over his feet and fell with her.

    -ai.

    ‘How did I get involved in such a cliche scene?’

    Cale rose from his position when he felt something soft was under his hand, squeezing it and realized it was the young girl's breast. Amiru opened her eyes slowly as she felt the squeeze. Cale withdrew his embarrassed hand and quickly apologized. To Cale's surprise, despite her red face, Amiru was angry and dealt him a right-wing blow.

    POw.

    Arg.

    Cale didn't expect the girl to be so strong, and the right blow knocked him down again.



    - I'm sorry, calle-nim.

    Almost arriving at his inn Cale was gritting his teeth with his slightly purple eye. It was the twentieth time Amiru apologized. The vitality of the heart acted fast and the pain passed instantly. But his emotions were turbulent.

    - I acted without thinking. I didn't want to hit him. Don't be angry, please.

     It was a reflection of the days spent in the underworld where she gathered her group of traders. I didn't take it easy and occasionally punched a smart guy. '

    Cale sighed.

    - I told you everything is fine. Come back to your house, tomorrow we see.

    Amiru stopped following him and ran back.

    • Human calms down. It was by accident Amiru is really sorry. Now you made her cry.

    - great.

    Cale answered sourly. I didn't want to be stupid but I couldn't control myself.

    'Why are things like this? None of her attempts made her reveal herself. Am I really a man? Also, why does it matter so much? Just need to ignore it. Or marry another. Does not matter. '

    Cale stopped walking and looked back. The little dragon had stopped a few feet earlier and was looking deeply into Cale, who felt his heart clench. The hard face softened and a forced smile appeared.

    - I'm sorry Raon. I didn't mean to be stupid with you that always helps me. I just .. just ..

    Sigh.

    - I need some time alone. What happened is not the reason for my bad mood. You're right. Amiru nim is cool. It's ok? Soon I'll be back to normal.

    Cale stroked the black dragon's head as he spoke. The little one accepted the affection and felt better. He nodded and flew away.



    End of the eighth chapter
  • edited August 13
    Inside the inn room, Cale called the chef cook.

    - Beacrox, bring me all the drink you brought.

    -Humm young master nim, it's three crates, I don't know if ..

    - perfect, don't just look at me, go.

    Beacrox made eye contact with his father, who nodded. Then he went out to get the drinks.

    - Ron get out, don't let anyone in. I want to be alone.

    - As you please.

    The night was calm in the territory of Ubarr. But in Cale's room the strong smell of alcohol permeated the room. His face was red and his hair tousled.

    - shit. I've had almost everything and can't get drunk.

    Why am I so frustrated? The results were good.

    A woman who loves me will treat me well and will not stop me from doing what I want. All right. Everyone happy.

    Then why?

    Cale gritted his teeth tightly and recalled the image of Amiru in the sunset light. His eyes narrowed, he rose quickly and unconsciously activated the dominant aura. The bottle in his hand was thrown hard against the wall.

    The trash of the Count's family.

    Ha.

    Cale sighed.

    Outside Ron was guarding the door when he spotted Choi Han.

    - I arrived now. How is Cale nim?

    - riled up.

    - should we help you?

    - Have you ever seen the young master act like trash? Your past identity? I know that not. I haven't seen him like this for years. He has carried a great burden and never wavered.

    - Yes Cale nim is strong. Although He doesnt want to demonstrate.

    Ron smiled sadly.

    - He needs to vent this pain. Let's let the pressure ease.

    Ahh

    Choi Han understood and nodded.

    - everything will be fine swordsman nim.

    Ron patted his back and turned as he felt someone approach.

    - Ron. Choi Han.

    Amiru greeted Cale's two friends and headed for the door. It was evident to both men that the girl had been crying. Her eyes were dark.

    - Wait, Miss Amiru nim. The young master is not well for visitors.

    - I know. It's my fault. I made him angry today. I need to talk to him.

    - I don't think ..

    Ron took Choi Han's arm and agreed with the girl.

    - I'll let you in, but if you need to call us.

    Amiru thanked him and entered Cale's room.

    The very spacious room was chaotic with empty bottles scattered on the floor, when the young woman entered took a long time to see Cale, who was standing back, to back in the back of the room. Amiru stopped in place. Coincidentally it was time that Cale activated his dominant aura to the fullest. Any other ordinary character would have passed out.

    Amiru shivered, her eyes blurred, and her face flushed red. With your mouth open a soft moan can be heard. Cale turned to see the girl who had just appeared. His teeth clenched and he looked away in embarrassment.

    He didn't want her to see his condition..

    "Since when do I care what you think of me?"

    Annoyed, he did not realize that the dominant aura was active.

    - Amiru nim, you better go.

    Cale heard a muffled groan, and finally looked closely. Amiru was panting, her body shaking.

    - but what..

    Amiru ran toward the disheveled nobleman and called his name with passion, before tugging at his shirt to reach his lips hard.

    - Cale.

    Cale's eyes widened and the protest caught in his throat. His name being called so intensely ignited hidden flames that began to burn his whole body inside.

    • That's how it's done. Hahahhahahaha. This girl knows how to start a fire. Hahahahaha
    The fire of destruction was euphoric.

    • There are other types of flames that can destroy and purify. Hahahahaha

    Cale ignored the voice and returned Amiru's warm kiss. One hand grasped the back of her neck while the other squeezed her back in a warm hug.

    ‘That was it. Yes. That was missing. I feel lighter. ”Cale's frustration and anger are gone. The dominant aura was deactivated and only then did Cale realize that he had activated it.

    Choi Han and Ron opened the door quickly when they noticed Cale's dominant aura to its fullest, and Amiru's running footsteps. With his mouth open, Choi Han forgot the phrase he was about to say when he saw the couple embracing. The innocent young man froze in place as his face dyed red to the roots of his hair. The butler grinned proudly at his young master as he dragged a shocked Choi Han out of the room and closed the door softly.

    The lovers, oblivious to their surroundings, continued the bond.

    Cale felt his head dizzy, his fingers numb and his body hot, as if the drink was doing its job. He no longer had control of his actions and was carried away by the intoxicating sensations.

    End of ninth chapter.

    * Scenes for +18.
    They are cut. hahahaha
    No expectations for the next chapter.
  • Cale kept the girl in his arms as he turned and slid panting down the wall to the floor. Amiru, who breathed fast, buried her face in Cale's chest as she sat on his lap.

    Ahh

    Cale sighed. 'what happened? How did it happen? What I did now… oh so good, I can't help thinking I would do it again.' He took a quick peek at Amiru.

    Amiru's breathing steadied. Her hands began to tremble, an intense flush spreading over her face. She lifted her head and saw Cale watching her, serene with his bright eyes under his sweat-dampened red hair. Amiru panicked, tears formed at the corners of her eyes and not knowing what to do, got up quickly and ran for the door.

    - I'm sorry Cale, sorry ...

    Cale stood up in surprise and tried to stop the girl, but she had already left closing the door with a violent thud.

    - what .. arrgg ..

    Cale dropped to his knees still watching the empty entrance. Then he lay on his back and covered his eyes with his arm.

    - shit.

    - Now that I stopped to think, the dominant aura was active when Amiru entered, wasn't she scared? Because it attacked me?

    • Dominate the soul. It is not just for enemies. The loved one will be dominated by passion.

    ‘Was that the voice of the former owner of the dominant aura? Dominated by passion, an aphrodisiac ..? ’

    • Hahahaha a fire needs fuel to burn. Fire consumes and purifies the soul. What an amazing synergy. It would not be possible with just one.

    ‘Does the fire of destruction along with the dominant aura become aphrodisiac? Why do I know that just now? ’

    'Wait .. This has not happened before with other women. ’

    • Not all available fuel causes a fire. It's just embers and ashes.

    Cale looked up at the ceiling and sighed. At the same moment he remembered when Amiru made the proposal, according to her diary, he had a seductive look. Cale again covered his eyes with his arm to hide his blush.

    - I am the pervert. Shit..


    The day was sunny. Two boys around the age of eight were arguing in the courtyard of the Henituse residence.

    - not! it's very dangerous. w .. we'll get in trouble.

    - Stop being fearful Eric, it's on our territory. Nothing will happen. Let's see.

    Boy Eric and Cale were thinking of going to the local market in hiding.

    - where do you think you are going?

    - Amiru nim. Why are you here?

    - what else? Having fun. No one deserves to learn to embroider when there are so many cool things here. Let's go together.

    - Not

    - Yes.

    ....

    The three ended up going in the end. The market had many people and stalls. After walking for a while and buying a few things, they had an argument with a foreign merchant.

    - I'm saying this brooch. Worth less than I'm offering.

    Amiru was negotiating.

    - Do you think you can tell me how much you charge little girl?

    - This brooch clearly has signs of wear, look at that. Neither is true silver. Aren't you ashamed to try to trick children?

    - you little brat.

    - A .. Amiru nim. Let it go, let's go.

    Eric tugged at the girl's hand as she bravely stared at the 6-foot-tall man. A cold glow could be seen in the man's eyes. He touched his sword discreetly, but refrained from the attack when he saw guards walking nearby.

    - here you rascal. Take it away. And never come back here.

    Amiru took the thrown brooch and smiled victoriously.

    - Amiru nim, did not need to spend saliva because of a dull object.

    - C .. Cale is right. Are you crazy.

    - Shut up Eric. Cale - nim doesn't understand the beauty of trading.

    - I prefer more elegant objects. Only that.

    The children continued on their way while the day was ending. They didn't notice a man in the shadows. At the next bend he appeared on the road and tried to attack them.

    - you insolent girl will die!

    - Kyaaa.

    The knife came whistling toward Amiru. Eric ran startled and hid behind a box. Before the blow hit its target, the man fumbled when a stack of boxes fell halfway.

    - run Amiru !!!

    Cale shoved the boxes into the thug and shouted in alarm before running too.

    - you shit kid.

    Cale felt a strong tug and was thrown to the floor. Coughing and in pain, he slowly got up. The man grabbed Cale's hair and was ready to shove the knife into his stomach as his hands shook and the knife fell. Cale fell again and beside him the unconscious man.

    - I found you young master nim.

    Cale looked at the benign butler who was beginning to blurry and passed out.


    Before sunrise Cale woke up and looked up at the ceiling of his room. He touched his head to check for the wound that no longer existed. The little dragon shifted on the bed beside him without waking up.

    'I was dreaming. No. It was a memory. ’

    Fatigue struck his body and Cale fell back into a deep sleep.


    end of the tenth chapter.

  • The next morning Cale got up feeling refreshed. After stretching the body lazily realized that the room was new and clean.

    - Raon. Thank you.

    • Aigo. Our human has returned.

    - Young master nim, I see you woke up in a good mood, that asks for a glass of cold lemonade.

    The benign butler's face appeared in the doorway, giving Cale shivers.
    'Why appear sneaky? I thought I got used to this old killer. '

    - Ron, bring them all together.

    • Our human has that smile. What are we going to win?

    Cale took the lemonade and smirked.

    - just the usual. Let's go back home.

    Cale laughed and got ready for breakfast.


    - Choi Han, stop gesturing and sit down.

    Choi Han didn't know what to say as he entered the room and looked like a robot waving his hands. Hearing the command, he sat shyly and ate in silence.

    Cale looked at Ron who shrugged as if he knew nothing.

    - And the girl Amiru, young master?

    - Let her know we're going home. If she comes to talk well. If it doesn't come .. hahaha .. it doesn't matter.

    • Human, didn't you make it up to her yesterday? Don't make her cry again human.

    - A .. the peace?

    Choi Han jumped and stammered staring at the small dragon with wide eyes.

    - Choi Han speak. Spit it out.

    Cale stared at the puzzled young man. ‘It's hiding something from me.’

    - ah .. a. Cale nim. I .. excuse me. I'll. See the carriage. For. Trip. Safe.

    - But what... the hell.

    ‘Choi Han is blatantly disguising himself in front of me’. Cale looked surprised at the young man who ran out the door.

    - Ron. Explain.

    - Young master, I'm glad you reconciled with the lady. / Fake cough / I'll call beacrox to go.

    ‘What the hell is going on with everyone around here. It seems until .. wait .. don't tell me ..? Were they spying on me?

    Cale dropped his fork on his plate and stared in amazement at the empty room before covering his face with his hand.

    - Arg.. I do not believe this.


    In the viscountess of Ubarr's house, Amiru was still locked in her room. No one could talk to her. Under the covers a sniff can be heard.

    - shit, shit, shit ...

    Amiru jumped off the bed and continued to curse under her breath.

    - What did I do. I really screwed up. Just hold on for one more day. I do not believe.

    Amiru whimpered as she rolled over the bed.

    'Cale was already convinced that I was good for him. I tried so hard to show him my practical side. I know you like reliable and helpful people.'

    * sniff

    - he must hate me now. A futile girl who throws herself at anyone.

    - shit.

    Knock knock * knock on the door *

    - Go away. I want to see nobody.

    - Young master Amiru. This will interest you. It is an envelope from the young master Cale Henituse.

    - What..?

    Amiru got up quickly and opened the door. The assistant jumped in fright, the young lady was totally misaligned.

    - Give me.

    The door was slammed shut before the girl went to bed with trembling hands. ‘Better get it over with, I'll open quickly and look. '

    Amiru stared at the small decorated paper that fell from the envelope.

    - That is... ? An invitation?

    ‘An invitation to an engagement party. Cale nim will be introducing his new mate in two weeks. ’

    - An invitation..

    Amiru stared blankly at the paper and a lone tear rolled down her cheek.

    - He .. he .. rejected me. And even threw salt on the wound. Invited me to meet your bride.

    Before she could control her emotions, Amiru realized that there was another piece of paper in the envelope.

    - What... ?

    / Amiru nim, my time in Ubarr was very fruitful. Their services were helpful. We'll meet in the future to hit new projects. Be sure to go to the party, unless you are no longer considered a fit candidate. Anxious? From: Cale. ’/

    - Fit candidate? Still have hope?

    Hahahahaha

    Amiru jumped on the euphoric bed and laughing.

    - I still have a chance. He was not angry. I still have ... chance? Will he invite all suitors?

    Amiru stopped jumping and sat on the bed while biting her fingertip.

    - I need to prepare for battle.


    End of the eleventh chapter.
  • "I won't falter now. What happened yesterday was ... was .."

    Amiru blushed as she remembered her moments.

    'no, no... '

    Her tousled hair jumped with the sudden jerk of her head.

    ‘I don't really know what happened. My mind went blank. I need to keep control. ’

    Amiru touched her face with her hands as she controlled her emotions. She looked into space and clenched her hands in fist with determination.

     'Cale, I won't let you down'.


    - Cale honey, I'm surprised at your actions. Will you still leave me in the dark?

    Cale savored his lunch with satisfaction before answering his stepmother.

    - I don't think you will bring girls to the residence. Am I right?

    - Right.

    Violan acquiesced. His stepson evaded the suitors in making a public presentation.

    - Hyung nim is very cool. I will try harder not to disappoint you.

    - Sorry about that hyung. It's my fault you're having problems.

    Lilith was thrilled with the party, even though it was focused on sword training, it was still a young lady. Balen martyred for the disease that made him sterile.

    - what you mean? Just keep striving for the Kingdom. Do what you can.

    Balen looked at his brother's quiet expression and clenched his fists tightly.

    'What is within my power'.

    - Yes, hyung. I won't let you down either.

    Cale nodded as he saw Balen's eyes sparkling with anticipation.

    "I don't seem to need to worry".

    The dining table was quiet again, but the mood was good and harmonious. A rare family moment.

    "I hope to have more days like this".


    The supposed engagement party was just a pretext to chase away the mad girls and appease the stepmother, who was busy preparing the hall of the residence.

    - Young master nim, the package is ready. Want to check the job?

    - It will not be necessary. I trust you.

    • Human my work is also ready. I added a part of myself.

    - Very competent. Nothing more than expected from a great and powerful dragon.

    The little dragon's wings fluttered with happiness as he settled on Cale's legs on the couch.

    Pihhh

    • A human video call. Connecting.

    Cale looked relaxed at Alberu's appearance on the broadcast screen. His expression was amused.

    • The hero of the kingdom. I am very happy to accept the invitation of such a noble and kind person.

    - cut the crap Alberu.

    The crown prince just looked curiously at the young man.

    • Saltpeter. That's true?

    “Rosalyn's research has had good results. One of the ingredients used for the dead mana bomb.

    Alberu got serious.

    "Arm was no doubt plundering saltpeter from the lands of Ubarr. Why use mermaids? Just to fight the whales and take a sea route? No. There was something else."

    • Ahhh. You. How did you know about .... nevermind. My presence Worth a good price. I will personally hand you the combined package during your engagement party.

    Alberu just trusted this ambitious young nobleman. ‘A quiet life, huh?’

    Smiling again with humor, the Crown Prince knew that Cale had everything but a lazy life.

    - expected of your highness.

    Cale smiled expectantly. He hoped to be well received for his services. Only in gold, certainly.

    • I am curious about your future bride. Does she know your fiery and careless nature?

    - what you mean? I always take good care of my precious life.

    Cale looked at the future heir to the throne with mock amazement.

    • Right human. I feel for Amiru nim.

    Alberu returned Cale's look with an expression of pity.

    ‘What's with that pity face?’ Cale knit his eyebrows in disbelief.

    • I'm looking forward to it.

    Alberu hung up the phone while shaking his head in resignation.

    Sigh.

    Cale continued to stare into the empty space as he considered his latest discovery.
    ‘Pump manufacturing. The ingredients that Rosalyn identified in addition to saltpeter, sulfur and charcoal. '

    - gunpowder.

    Arm was actually removing the ingredient for making dead mana.
    "I was suspicious, but I didn't realize my assumptions were right. Amiru nim did not know of the existence of saltpeter on her land. '

    A loving smile bloomed on the noble's lips without realizing it. His thoughts flew as his remembered the pleasant moments his had spent beside young Amiru.

    • Is Human missing Amiru nim? I miss you too. When will you let her know my magnitude?

    Cale woke from his reverie and choked on the little black dragon's questions.

    Fake cough.

    - Let's have dinner. This exhausting conversation made me hungry.


    End of the twelfth chapter.
  • edited September 20
    A carriage arrived in Henituse territory with the Ubarr coat of arms. Just two days before the long-awaited engagement.

    - welcome young lady.

    - thanks Hans. Cale is found?

    The man received the girl at the entrance of the residence, surprised by the early arrival.

    - Yes, young Amiru nim. Wait in the hall.

    Amiru settled into the living room and waited while enjoying a nice cup of tea.
    'I prepared emotionally for this meeting. I can't deny the confidence that filled me with courage. But now I'm afraid. ’

    Her hands shook slightly as she watched the door anxiously.

    miawww

    Amiru jumped off the startled couch, then realized it was Cale nim's little cat. A shy smile appeared on her pale face.

    - Come here, little one. You scared me.

    Amiru held the cat affectionately while talking to distract herself.

    "Do you know where your master is?"

    Miaawww

    - what a beautiful skin you have!

    Miawww

    On was very happy with the proximity of the girl and meowed in his arms.

    "Cale must touch him like that often, isn't he?" I am jealous.

    On looked at Amiru and tilted her head slightly, what do you mean? You will have much affection '. The girl who didn't hear the cat's thoughts smiled sweetly.

    - it seems to me that you understand kitten. So be sure to tell Cale - nim.

    - Why don't you say it yourself?

    Cale whispered in the girl's ear, who shouted in surprise at the sneaky approach. On was thrust upward in fright and fell to her feet, meowing indignantly.

    - Ca .. Cale!

    Amiru turned and met the young man's eyes watching her with amusement. The lady enrubeceu and fumbled.

    - ah .. ah you. It was there all the time. How mean.

    Cale turned and sat opposite Amiru. Pouring tea, he hid the laugh that threatened to escape. The young woman's hands were holding her red face.

    "Oh! How embarassing. Did he hear what I said to the kitten? My previous preparation for the meeting evaporated. "

     Amiru looked at his feet as her mustered the courage to look at the man in front of her.

    Cale waited for the girl to calm down, while watching the expression on her face, can not help thinking that was lovely. On climbed on the young man's legs and stared with sparkling eyes.

     Miawww.

    Amiru heard the kitten and looked reflexively. Her eyes met Cale's. A hot shiver ran down her spine and licked her belly. Amiru's legs felt soft as melted butter.  "Ah. How can he look at me with such intensity?"

    Cale was oblivious to what happened and just acted normally.

    - So what do you need from me Amiru? Did you come to attack me again?

    The girl awoke from her stupor, stared in shock at the boy for a second, and quickly calmed down.

    - sorry about that. I was not in my right mind. I know you didn't push me away because you wasn't sober.

    Cale raised a surprised eyebrow.

    Amiru was actually trying to convince herself of that. ‘Is the only plausible explanation’.

    - I came to thank you. Cale, I thought you were just testing me when you showed up in Ubarr. I am very naive. Your attitude thrills me.

    - I don't know what you're talking about girl.

    Amiru's gaze became deeper and more painful.

    - really?

    Cale knew that Alberu contacted her to negotiate saltpeter mining in Ubarr territory. It was annoying to get so much attention, so his feigned ignorance.

    A few days ago Amiru received a visit from Paul, a representative of the Imperial prince.

    "The only person who investigated the territory of Ubarr was Cale nim during the supposed tour. He was looking farther than anyone. Paul demanded my presence in the discussion. A benefit granted by Cale, for sure. ’

    Amiru gritted her teeth and felt angry. ‘I can't even thank you without upsetting you. Why is this man so stubborn?

    - Cale, don't not know?

    Taking a deep breath, she looked at Cale seriously.

    - What would you like? What you want?

    - nothing that interests me.

    - I knew I would say that. Even if you don't want anything from me, I'll still give it to you. On here. The profits from the sale of saltpeter. You will have a percentage.

    Cale received the document signed by Lady of Ubarr. 'Partner. Why should I refuse easy money? More profit for me, besides the Alberu pay." A genuine smile appeared.

    - Very well. I will accept that.

    Amiru blinked in surprise at the change. She took the moment to remove another package from his bag.

    - I'm glad you accepted it easily.

    - I have something else to give you.

    Cale petted On who was in his arms and looked at the package offered. Amiru surrendered with shaking and embarrassed hands.

    - this is Ubarr's special candy. I know you like it. I did it with my hands. For you.

    Cale took it and got up quickly, turning his back to the girl, intent on finishing the conversation.

    - thanks Amiru. I believe we are done. I'm leaving, you showed up very early. See you tomorrow.

    • Human are you sick? Can not get sick. Why are your ears red? Before entering the room, it was like that too.

    Cale hurried out of the room.

    'They are? Shit. How could it not be like this, with my heart beating so fast? Looks like I'm going to throw up blood. I think I'm really getting sick. '

     Amiru stood up and watched the young man leave carefree. A sigh escaped his lips.

    - I can't tell if you appreciated my gift. At least he accepted it.

    - Right. I can't get all sentimental. The war is not over. 

    On nodded in agreement as the girl clenched her fists with determination.




    End of chapter thirteen
  • Prom

    Night came on Henituse territory and the multicolored lights of the main residence overshadowed the darkness. The air filled with the sound of cheerful voices and carts.

    A shadow appeared on a window on the upper floor. Cale watched the movement and was exhausted.

    • Human is this a party? There is a lot of food and happy people. You have to be happy too.

    ‘It's not my definition of happiness.’

    Cale avoided his stepmother all day.
     ‘The party was my suggestion, but I'm not required to be the host. Garbage can afford to walk as it pleases. '

    - Cale, it's almost time.

    The butler was nicer than usual. That was very strange to see. Cale looked out the window one last time distracted and stopped in his seat.

    - Ron, is Cale nim ready yet? I will .. Ah

    The red-haired mage hurried through the open door. Before finishing the sentence stopped in place to realize the tense atmosphere. Cale had a heavy aura, his back to the door.

    Rosalyn looked at the butler as a silent question. Ron shook his head no. “Ron doesn't know what happened either. Why does Cale nim look so angry?

    • Human. Look, young Amiru arrived at the party. Let's eat with her.

    - Miss Rosalyn. We will.

    Cale turned slowly as if not to look away. He closed his eyes for a moment, took the young redhead's hand and headed for the hall.

    “Amiru has arrived. Wasn't it to be happy?”
    The mage thought as she looked at the red-haired man holding her arm.
    "Good. He knows what he does. I will follow the flow. ”

    Ron peered at the window curiously, and saw people with smiles and beautiful attire. Almost leaving he noticed in a corner a girl with green hair holding the hand of young Eric. A cold glow appeared on the old assassin's face. "Young master.."


    Amiru entered the room with Eric, searched for familiar faces, but didn't see what he was looking for. He tried to push away from the young nobleman, who answered obliviously.

    - don't worry Amiru nim. I will not leave you alone. Your dignity is safe with me.

    Eric thought like all the other noble men around. It is impossible for the Kingdom hero to choose any ordinary lady, not when he has so many beauties around his, the whale princess, the jungle queen, and a powerful wizard and former princess. The girls at the party have hopes, but Eric wasn't going to leave Amiru alone.

    - Eric, I don't need you to worry about me. I am fine.

    The young lady showed a serenity she was far from feeling, impatient, grumbling internally.
     "I swear today I'm going to kick this asshole."

    - Come on Amiru nim, let's have a drink.

    At that moment the busy room was silent, the young master Cale Henituse appeared with Princess Rosalyn. People let out delighted sighs. Never seen such beauty, the couple seemed to come out of a painting.


    A few moments before.

    - I was surprised when you called me to accompany you.

    Rosalyn started a conversation along the way.

    - Why the surprise. You said yourself that I could order whatever you need.

    - right. Did you change your mind about the proposal I made?

    The young woman lightly squeezed Cale's arm as she waited for the answer. The hall door was just ahead.

    - Yes and no.

    - excuse me?

    The redhead stared at the mysteriously smiling young man.

    - You made me a proposal for consideration. I will accept your help magician.

    Rosalyn doubted the words, “He really wants my help, but it won't be with the marriage. What are you up to Cale? ”

    Before he could confirm his assumptions the doors opened. The large hall lit with multicolored lights came into view of the young woman who can not but be surprised by the decoration. Large swaths of fabric were carefully matched down the walls to complete the charm. In the center of the room above all heads a huge balloon flew majestically. And the smell of flowers mingled with the aroma of hot food.

    When all eyes fell on them, Rosalyn understood why she needed to keep up with Cale.
    The nobleman's insight astounded her. “I know I told you to use me when you needed it. But that makes me uncomfortable. ”A bright smile appeared on the young lady's face. "This is a game for two".

    - My dear, what a wonderful party you have prepared I am delighted.

    The redhead clung to her seductive arm as she looked around at the people. The young man stiffened for a moment, almost losing his elegant stride. "What the hell are you doing?"

    - Y.. yes.

    The magician winked at Cale and whispered pretending not to notice the young man's displeasure.

     - I'll make it the best night of your life.



    End chapter fourteen.
  • Rosalyn continued parading through Cale's clinging hall. He talked to everyone who approached, using his charm to ward off the flustered maidens.

    • Human, Choi Han fled after being surrounded by the ladies previously, and hid in the kitchen with Beacrox.

     "I'm a little jealous."

    • But he said he is ready to implement the plan.

    "I just have to wait for the main character."

    Cale smiled contentedly, drawing sighs from the surrounding girls.


    Across the room, Eric rejoiced at the Kingdom Commander's demonstration of power.

    - I was right about Cale. He is certainly great. A noble who deserves our respect. See Amiru nim, that woman next to you is the former princess of the Breck Kingdom. She also fought leading the Wizards of the Kingdom. A lot of people were rooting for this couple. How exciting, let's see a marriage to the most powerful in the Kingdom.

    Amiru didn't hear her colleague's chatter, could only hear a crashing noise as she fanned herself with her mother's fan of lace. No one else listened, for the sound was within itself.

    - Amiru? Amiru? This listening to me, Come on, the music started playing, I promised to take care of you, let's dance.

    Eric tugged on the insistent girl's arm, leading her into the middle of the room.

    - Eric, wait, I don't wanna dance .. I .. I'm not fine.

    Eric stopped and looked at the girl. Amiru hid her face in the shadows of her hair. The nobleman felt her shaking hands and only then did he realize. “Amiru nim, you ...”

    Before continuing, Eric suddenly felt a sense of danger, the air became heavy, it was hard to breathe. His back went cold when a presence appeared. Turning sharply, the noble saw Cale staring intently.

    - ah .. Cale .. What ..

    The words didn't come out, Eric just thought he was going to die right now. He didn't remember committing any crime, but he could have sworn to be the culprit.

    Cale ignored the nobleman, positioned himself in front of Amiru, who looked surprised as the young man touched his cheek lightly, a lonely tear was collected.

    Ah

    Amiru cringed in embarrassment. I didn't want to be seen now. Cale could always destabilize her emotions.

    Cale was angry right now. Not directed at the lady, but at himself and Eric. Eric for making her cry somehow. And anger at himself for feeling so bothered.

    - Wait a little longer.

    The lady peered in confusion.

    - trust me.

    Amiru's eyes widened in surprise. Before being able to process what happened, the surrounding people were alarmed by the arrival of the Crown Prince.

    Rosalyn approached Cale and watched the people who ignored the scene for a moment to greet Alberu.

    Amiru found herself alone again. Still in a trance he saw the young nobleman walk away with the beautiful redhead toward the hall entrance.

    "Trust me"

    Amiru blushed slightly as she remembered Cale's words. She took a deep breath and recovered her senses. Now his eyes pointed with determination.

    "I will believe you."

    Eric cringed in a forgotten corner. The other nobles from the Northeast approached, forming a wheel, condolences were heard.



    - Cale, is it okay to leave Amiru nim like that?

    Rosalyn whispered as they crossed the room.

    - Do not worry. She'll be fine soon. In fact, you should worry about Eric Whillsmam.

    The redhead cringed at her companion's tone of voice.

    “I never imagined this lazy young man being jealous. I almost feel for Eric. Almost."

    Alberu after being surrounded by elegant ladies easily deviated, meeting the focus of the party.

    - The hero of the kingdom. Your courage and loyalty have saved us so many times, there are not enough words to express my gratitude. I'm very happy to invite me to such a grand party. "

    • the crown prince is shining. He never looked so happy. And it's stronger too.

    - The Kingdom star, I thank you for your ever shining presence your highness. Don't say about heroism, I'm just a citizen doing your part.

    The two young men laughed knowing what this meeting would bring. Cale was very happy to receive more of Alberu's money.

    The party people were thrilled with the meeting. The image of the two nobles would be etched in everyone's mind.



    End for the fifteen chapter.
  • Soon the bustle fell away, people were enjoying the party, eating, drinking and dancing.

    Alberu escaped for a moment to deliver the promised amount to Cale at Henituse's office.

    - I'm always happy to help you.

    Ah

    Alberu sighed, nothing more surprised him from Cale.

    - Now that this matter of Salitre is settled, I would like to meet your bride. Rosalyn isn't it? Aren't you going to formally introduce me?

    A wide smile broke across Cale's face.

    - It's not Miss Rosalyn.

    - who?

    Alberu was confused. "Who in this party could be the chosen girl? The most powerful women Cale knows have not come. The only suitor at the height here is the red mage."

    - You don't have to be anxious ... you'll know.

    - This is not your style. Looks like it goes .. ah ... never mind. Do whatever you want.

    - I will. For that I need a favor.

    Cale laughed at the young heir's expression. After sighing again, he agreed to help.



    The whispers in the room grew louder.

    "Cale Henituse's new bride is young Rosalyn."

    "He won't make the presentation formally?"

    "So beautiful .. so jealous".

    "Haha, was expected of such a figure."

    “Wasn't he the trash of the Earl's family? Hero a roe. ”

    "Such a powerful magician need not stoop."

    "They are a perfect match."

    The comments piled up, between good and bad.
    The laughter and gossip ceased with the sudden darkness. The lights went out for a moment. Then only the center of the room was lit up. The large balloon that floated above the room burst, spilling colorful confetti.

    The scream of surprise was drowned out by the delighted laughter of the guests.

    Amiru looked surprised at the show when her mouth was sealed by one hand. People nearby were focused on the falling confetti and missed the kidnapping.

    After being carried out of the hall Amiru tried to get rid of the hijacker by elbowing his ribs. But unfortunately her attacker had a robust physique and the girl's arm was sore.

    The shadow man released the girl and his face was visible in the moonlight.

    - you .. Ron ..

    - I apologize to my lady for scaring her like this. Come, the young master awaits you.

    Amiru rubbed her arm as she followed the stunned butler.

    In a distant room the girl saw a magic circle.

    - trust me. Let's find the young master.

    Ron reached out and guided Amiru to the teleportation. The lights overshadowed her vision, but within seconds the new ambience appeared before her eyes.

    Amiru kept her mouth open as she saw a beautiful garden surrounding a mansion.

    - Ron .. this place. Where are we?

    The girl questioned the butler. Without receiving an answer, she turned quickly and saw no more.

    - This is my home.

    A warm voice reached the lady's ears. Turning, she saw a man approaching with an affectionate smile.

    - Cale.

    Amiru blinked several times, opened and closed her mouth, but the words didn't come out. I had a lot of questions I wanted to ask. Finally decided to wait.

    Cale found the girl's expression very comical and hid his laughter with his hand.

    - I wish you could know my refuge. It is a place where only those I trust can enter.

    Amiru was very happy to have the confidence of the beloved man. But at the same time she felt bad for engaging petty methods to get what she wanted.

    “I need to be honest with him. Even if it's rejected. ”

    Amiru felt her heart race. She put her hands on her chest and looked seriously at the young man.

    - Cale. Before I continue I need to tell you something.

    Cale saw the determination in her eyes and felt his heart skip a beat. “Am I imagining things? Looks like I'll be rejected. ”

    • Is human time for the match? Can I introduce myself now?

    - hang on. Let's go in to talk.

    Cale shook his head slightly for Raon to wait.



    End of chapter sixteen.
  • Inside the residence Amiru tried not to get lost with the stunning look of the place. She focused on measuring the words before he started.

    - I imagine you brought me here because you consider me a reliable business person. When I made the proposal, it was for freedom. You gave me freedom without seeking your own benefits. Saltpeter is more than enough to make my life better, and its trade is under my supervision. My mother will no longer insist on marriage.

    Amiru paused in the speech. Her mouth felt dry. She bit her lip and continued. Cale listened attentively.

    - According to the initial proposal there is no more reason for a marriage.

    At this point Cale felt a stab in his heart. "Am I really being rejected?"

    - Forget about this contract nonsense. Forget all about needing freedom or anything!

    Cale was surprised by the intensity of the words. The girl clasped her hands in her lacy skirt and spoke hard as her face burned.

    - Cale I love you. I have always loved. I've been waiting for you since that day. When you saved me. You may not remember, but I still remember. I .. I .. I'm sorry .. I'm sorry for causing you pain that day, I'm sorry for being selfish.
      
    Tears gathered at the corners of Amiru's eyes, as she lowered her head, too embarrassed to face the young man.

    The silence lasted for a few more minutes. Amiru, fearful, finally raised her head and widened her eyes.

    Cale had his face turned to the right, one hand covering him, unable but to hide the blush. His heart was beating fast and a strong emotion filled him.

     “I read the diary. I already knew Amiru's feelings. As I thought. This is even more shameful when said out loud. ”

    Amiru blushed as she listened to her heart wanting to come out of her chest.

    - You have a lot of courage to confess in front of so many people.

    Jumping in surprise, she realized there was someone else in the room.

    - hehe.  Cale, so you noticed we were here.

    Without turning around, Cale sighed. Choi Han and Rosalyn were squeezed in the doorway, and behind them not visible, Beacrox and Ron leaning against the wall.

    - I thought I said to wait.

    After the initial surprise, Amiru remembered her confession and her face turned redder than before, if that were possible.

    - ah .. Miss Rosalyn .. you heard me.

    - loud and clear. Haha. Don't worry about what happened at the party. Cale only used my image for his purposes.

    "That's not wrong, but it still made me look like a villain." Cale snapped his tongue indignantly.

    - I don't think you should have heard that. Rosalyn I'm leaving.

    - Hold on, don't be shy Choi Han. We need to record this.

    Rosalyn tried to hold back the embarrassed Choi Han and heard a silent laugh from the old butler.

    “This clay mage is still mad at what happened. It's doing it on purpose. ”

    Cale couldn't help but think the room was getting too noisy when the little dragon made his entrance.

    - Amiru finally. Knew you were nice.

    Ahhh

    Amiru screamed and jumped, startled by the sudden appearance of the plump dragon.

    - Aigo. do not panic. I am the great and powerful Raon Miru. I am taking care of this human currently.

    “I heard a rumor about Cale being protected by a dragon. But I didn't think it would be true. Is he a dragon? It doesn't look like one. At least not with those of the stories. It's very cute in reality. ”

    - ah. A dragon .. really .. a black dragon. Ah sorry for the disrespect, I was surprised. Nice to meet you.

    - no one else listens to me here?

    Cale exclaimed in disguise. Amiru sat on the nobleman's lap in fright, her arms still wrapped around his neck.

    - Noona wastes no time. Huh.

    - miaww.  how beautiful.

    On and Hong appeared alongside Raon in their human form, looking mischievously at the young couple.

    - Ah .. I .. I'm sorry Cale. I didn't want to jump on you like that.

    Amiru realized that she was clinging to the beloved man. It descended quickly, red to the roots of her hair. "I want to get in a hole."

    - "Cough". All right, enough. You already said what you wanted. Now get out.

    Cale watched his companions come out with mischievous smiles. After confirming that he had privacy, he turned to the lady seriously.

    - As you may have realized, the party was a scam. Alberu will take care of the rest. The main event is here.


    End of chapter seventeen.
  • - Do not understand. Because it brought me. No more faking a marriage.

    Amiru sat back down and looked confused at the young man.

    - I just do what I want. And I want a life peaceful and lazy. But I will not stop supporting my companions. The good things that happen to me I like to share with them too.

    Amiru knew that side of him, was more like Cale than his childhood memories. Before the accident. Her eyes bright with remembrance followed the movement of the young man's hands.

    - See this brooch? I always brought him with me, but I didn't know why. Until recently.

    Cale took the brooch out of his pocket and after a pause stared at Amiru. The girl's eyes widened.

    - This brooch ..

    - I remembered a part of my childhood I had forgotten. Remember when we were kids? A merchant tried to kill you, after saving you, my head hit the floor hard. My life changed that day. As you may know. I went through a long period of recovery and the traumatic stress changed my personality. I was always impatient, angry and empty. I started to drink and act arrogantly.

    Amiru listened attentively as she recalled the incident. Her hands tightened on her dress.

    - I won't go into the details of how I regained my mind and let go of bad habits. But I could understand what was missing when I was with you in Ubarr last month.

    Amiru shuddered slightly. Cale looked down at his hands and gritted his teeth.

    “Cale always loved Amiru. The memory was locked after the accident. When I fell in love with her too, the memory came back. It seems that Kim Hok Soh and Cale had more in common than imagined. It is painful to think that such a precious memory could disappear. "

    Amiru watched the young man rise at that moment and her eyes widened as Cale knelt at his feet and grasped her hands. Their eyes met then.

    - Amiru Ubarr, you were destined to be mine already. I won't let you get away from me again. My fiance.

    Amiru felt her mind go blank now. It was like a dream. “Am I really hearing this? My eyes are fooling me. ” The girl pinched her cheek hard until tears spilled from her eyes.

    Cale saw no reaction and began to worry when suddenly Amiru pinched himself. Cale held her hand again to keep her from getting hurt.

    - Hey, don't hurt your face that way.

    - ah .. really .. It's not a dream.

    “What bullshit are you saying?” Cale cringed still embarrassed by the statement.

    - Don't you believe my feelings?

    Cale kissed the flushed cheek, drawing a sigh of surprise.

    Ah ..

    Amiru felt the softness of his lips on her aching cheek. "Fiancee. Yours. ”He remembered Cale's words and the world became more colorful. A broad smile began to form, but then he realized something was missing.

    "You haven't told me yet."

    - what?

    - your feelings.

    Ah Cale snapped his tongue and stood up. He had avoided putting it into words because it was too shameful to say.

    - my actions speak for themselves.

    Amiru also got up. She walked over and touched the red-haired man's elegant coat.

    - Cale I love you.

    Cale gasped at the sudden statement. His face reflected the color of his hair.

    - I like you . I could spend a lifetime telling you. On here. Do you feel my heart?

    Amiru pulled Cale's hand and placed it on your chest. The young man winced at the contact.

    - It's beating so fast in my chest, it makes me feel dizzy. It feels strange but at the same time very good. When I say these words, can you see how I feel? Cale I like you.

    Amiru kept telling her how much she loved him. Her actions were making him more and more embarrassed.

    - Yes ... yes. But calm down a little. Wait. Give me a sec. This is a bit much for me right now.

    Amiru was happy and eager to give and receive, now that she knew her love was returned. But it was suddenly stopped by the young man. Realizing she was very bold, she walked away awkwardly.

    - ah .. I'll tell you. But not today. It's ok.

    Despite not having the declaration of love she expected, Cale's actions really spoke for him. Amiru was pleased to see the redhead's expressions she had never seen before.

    - so I'll look forward to it.

    Quieter, Cale gripped the lady's hands again, smiling. The couple stayed like this for a while, just enjoying the feeling of closeness. The mood was broken by the young redhead.

    - the conversation extended and you didn't answer me.

    Amiru blinked in surprise, tried to remember the question, tilting her head to the side.

    - Will you be my bride?




    End of chapter eighteen

  • Ah
    - You didn't ask me that question before.

    - whatever. I am asking now.

    The young man snapped his impatient tongue.

    Amiru smiled mischievously before answering.

    - Yes I do. With a condition. You'll have to tell me your feelings before the wedding.

    Cale cringed at the answer.

    - very well. It's already solved. Now come, we have to celebrate.

    They still had a lot to talk about, but for tonight Cale's group set up a celebration party.

    In Vila Rock's garden a large table was filled with several delicious dishes made by beacrox. Blue and yellow magic lights floated between the trees and the people to brighten the party.

    The children of the wolf tribe, including Lock, Captain Hilsman, Hans, Ron, Choi Han, Beacrox, Rosalyn, Raon, On, and Hong were present. Other people were invited but could not attend, including Mary and Tasha.

    - Amiru come on. Now we can talk.

    Rosalyn and On tugged on the green-haired girl's arm, ready to begin the interrogation. While the girls went to a corner laughing, Cale sat on a couch with comfortable cushions placed in the garden exclusively for him.

    • Cale, you need to eat very well. Hans said that a man getting married needs strength. I'll leave one of my steaks for you.

    The black dragon flew quickly and landed on the nobleman's lap, holding a plate of steak with its plump paws.

    Cale raised an eyebrow and wondered what Hans had been saying to this 6 year old.

    • I'll bring you a piece of pie in a moment.

    Flying back, Raon headed toward Choi Han.

    • Cale will eat one of my steaks, but this one is my Choi Han, wait a minute.

    The couch was a little off the table. Cale leaned back against the cushions and set the steak plate beside it. Wishing at that moment that he could drink a glass of wine, he watched his group move.

    Choi Han tried to explain to the flying child that he would not eat the steak. Hong sitting next to Choi Han, enjoying a piece of cake. Beacrox watched over the wolf children, preventing any mess, talking to Lock for the millionth time about the need to wash his hands before eating.

    Rosalyn laughed out loud as she glared at Cale and poked Amiru with her elbow. On agreed excitedly wagging his tail. Cale looked at Amiru who turned his face to meet his gaze. The girl's face was flushed. Ashamed, she spoke again to the redhead in front of her, waving her hands in agitation.

    Cale then sighed and looked up at the night sky. Clouds covered the stars and moonlight. The breeze blew and spread the clouds slowly, making way to visualize the bright moon.

    “I haven't felt that way in a while. Everything seems so peaceful. Even with everyone here making noise. ”

    - I don't think this is so bad after all.

    - I'm happy young master.

    Cale cringed in surprise at the sudden appearance of the killer butler. "How long was this sneaky old man after me?"

    - Brought the wine.

    Cale watched with pleasure as a glass was filled with wine.

    - I have a feeling of a duty done. I think I can die without regrets.

    Cale choked on his wine. "What the fuck are you saying while enjoying my drink?"

    - Don't say bullshit Ron. The wine loses its flavor.

    - haha. Yes Young Master.

    • Has Cale ever eaten the steak? Why haven't you eaten yet? I gave my part exclusively to you. Eat and get big and strong.

    Cale heard the small, black-winged being approaching cheerfully.

    • Now is the right time for my surprise. 

    "Hmm. Surprise?"

    While trying to figure out what the little dragon was hiding, Cale saw in the night sky a whirlwind that warped space around him. Before it could cry out in surprise, the vortex vanished, leaving in its place several small objects, which floated like paper over the party.

    Everyone looked up and saw the objects approaching, scattered on all sides. Amiru reached for one, like everyone else, widening her eyes as she realized that these were photos. Images depicting joyous moments experienced by Cale's friends.

     This one in particular showed Cale stroking On. Looking around Amiru realized that the images had something in common. Cale Henituse was in all of them.

    • Me. I learned from one person how to keep the moments that make them happy in images for remembrance.

    - Raon ..



    End of chapter nineteen
  • Cale stood and took one of the still-floating photos, then wrapped the little dragon in his arms.

    • Human, this is my gift to you and Amiru. Congratulations.

    Amiru approached the two and also joined the hug with tears in her eyes.

    - Thanks Raon. It's beautiful.

    Undoing the hug quickly, Cale handed the photo he held to Amiru.

    - Liked it.

    The redhead smiled widely.

    Amiru looked shocked at the picture, not believing it was portraying herself. Her hair flew brilliantly overlaid in the setting sunlight.

    "So beautiful. This is me?"

    • I like this one too. That was a lazy day. Although the human is in a bad mood.

    - Wait. Was Dragon nim there too?

    Amiru remembered the last day they spent together in Ubarr, and was surprised for a moment, before rethinking that this was natural.

    - Ah. Right . You're always near Cale, aren't you? That's really good.

    Amiru looked affectionately at the little dragon. She thought of all the dangerous things Cale had to go through, and she felt calmer, knowing that such a powerful being was by her side.

    The others continued to gather the images as they recalled their moments together, laughing. Always looking fondly at the young nobleman they met as the Count's family trash. But today is part of their lives, as the guy they admire and should protect at any cost.

    - Cale. Will our days always be like this?

    Cale took the hands of the beautiful lady who was looking at him fondly, and thought that this could last forever.

    - I will make them.

    At that moment Cale didn't want to think about the challenges yet to come. Defeat Arm.

    So simply decided to enjoy the moment. He lightly kissed his future wife's forehead and smiled happily.

    The two sat on the couch to enjoy Beacrox food and listen to the lively conversations of their companions.

    Much confusion was yet to come. Marriage. War. Defeat Arm. Then you would have to tell your wife about your goals, and ensure your safety and your home.

    Amiru was sure she could go through everything as long as Cale was by her side. Shaking hands with her future husband, her chest filled with happiness.


    THE END


    Bonus 1

    Far away Alberu looked at the same moon in the sky, wondering if his commander was having a proper rest. His daydreams ceased with the sounds of loud music. Returning to the salon, he took care to keep his attention on himself to disguise the young redhead's disappearance.

    Eric Whiilsman had a very bad night, couldn't relax and have fun. In every corner of the party he saw Cale's face and was startled. His poor life seemed to be hanging by a thread.

    "What did I do?"

    His desperate scream was drowned out by the loud music. Going on like never before.




    Bonus 2

    - I love you.

    Amiru jumped in fright when she saw Cale pleading out of nowhere.

    It's been days since they got it right. And the wedding was approaching.

    She was combing her hair in her room, when Cale came in carefree and after a few minutes in silence finally spoke.

    - My promise has been fulfilled.

    With nothing more to say, Cale turned and intended to leave the room quickly.

    - Wait. Do not leave yet. I didn't hear right. Speak again.

    Amiru took Cale's arm anxiously.

    The redhead avoided his gaze and hid his face with one hand, but the girl can see his red face.

    - You did hear. I will not repeat.

    Amiru smiled happily and hugged him tightly. Hehe.

    - I think the lemonade can wait. Excuse.

    The couple jumped when they realized the old butler holding a tray of lemonade.
    "When does he .."

    - Going out. I have always been here.

     Hehe.
