I Became a Dark Knight the Empress Is Obsessed With chapter 56
56 – Sunny after rain – (1)
The second hand moved without rest.
To filter out the noise, the platinum-haired girl was busy playing with her pen. A feast of written letters and numbers. Even though she was tired of it, she didn’t even show it and moved her hand.
The lady-in-waiting, Lucy, who had been sitting next to her and watching silently, looked out the window with a yawn.
I saw the blue sky that felt the scent of spring. Imperial spring is beautiful. What’s more, at this time of year, the gardens of the imperial palace are in full bloom, so it must be spectacular.
“Lucy, don’t be fooled.”
As soon as I looked at the scenery outside for a moment, the fire command fell.
Lucy looked at her master, Lincia Ayren, with a dissatisfied expression.
She was focused on paperwork, not even looking at Lucy.
“But I’m bored.”
“It’s a job, and that too. I can’t help it.”
Lucy muttered a groan and sat upright.
What Lynchia was holding on to was the administrative documents of the Empire.
This time it was probably a document about a budget transaction.
Originally, the Empress was in charge of the simple task of stamping, but as she became proficient in it, she gradually took on more important tasks.
And everyone was amazed at the growth.
Lincia was stepping on her path as a proper emperor.
Make sure to read from noble mtl dot com
Director. And since the attack of the church, she seems to have made up her mind, and she is showing great progress, so the administration often sticks her tongue out as a ruler given by God.
In fact, although the literal god-given ruler was right.
“How long have you been?”
“Almost everything. To be honest, I can’t even touch it. Mr. Heggins has to be very meticulous.”
Administrator Coreld. I’ve heard rumors that the fat man is a talented person, but is it really that great?
Normally, I would laugh at the sight of him somehow leading that heavy body. Lately, it’s gotten a little bit more tidy, so I’ve become a bit more tolerant of it.
how long has it been
After finishing the capture, Lyncia leaned back on the backrest and let out a small breath.
It seemed that the work had been completed.
But Lynchia couldn’t get up from her seat.
Because the clock in the imperial palace was strict. Even when work was over, I could not spend my free time until the work day was over. After a few raids, it was impossible to leave the room at all because the number of people in the room was controlled.
In the end, Lincia looked at the documents again and went into review to see if there were any mistakes. Lucy admired that meticulousness inwardly.
I look at the grandfather clock nestled in the corner of my office.
Focus on the paper again.
But less than a minute later, another glance.
Lynchia continued to stare at the clock’s second hand.
At first, the eyes that were focused on the papers lost their intelligence, and now the watch almost took their eyes off them.
My legs, which swayed regularly under the chair, began to wriggle.
Between the bare feet, white toes vigorously assert themselves.
“Even if you keep watching, time doesn’t go by fast.”
Clearing her throat, Lyncia turned her head away.
Lucy looked at him and twitched her lips.
It was because he could clearly see what Lyncia was waiting for just by looking at it.
Although she usually has a straightforward personality, she has become a girl herself in certain subjects. It was a fact that Lucy had realized after watching Lynceia over the past few months.
Soon after, the sound of a bell rang through the room.
It is three o’clock in the afternoon.
Lincia’s superficial work hours were over. Now it was free time.
The chair rolled across the floor.
As soon as Lyncia heard the bell, she hurriedly left the room without her clothes on.
But for a moment, I realized something and stopped. I turned my head and looked at Lucy.
Lyncia straightens her bangs.
Soon after, she spoke up and had the appearance of a young country girl.
“Hey, he. Am I a little scruffy?”
Lucy narrowed her eyes when she heard that.
He certainly had the impression that he looked a bit haggard because he had been working since morning.
However, from Lucy’s point of view, Lynthia Ayrn was without a doubt the most beautiful woman in the Empire. It stimulates men’s protective instinct while exuding youthful charm. These days, she has even matured, and she is truly a beauty of the borderline color.
However, Lucy hid her true intentions and answered deftly.
“Well? It might look a little dirty.”
“……Hmm, is that so? Maybe it’s better to wash before going?”
Lucy pretended to be worried, then grinned.
“Do you think it will be okay? I think a beauty who concentrates on work is attractive in her own way.”
“Maybe if you’re a protector of the border, you’ll be more attracted to that figure.”
With those words in her mouth, Lyncia widened her eyes.
Her light-colored lips twitched, then she tidily stroked her hair and looked in the hand mirror.
“Is that so?… not!”
Lyncia, who came to her senses and shouted, her face was stained red.
“Uh, it’s only for the purpose of visiting the hospital! It’s true that Fried made a feat, so I have no other thoughts! And isn’t it natural that the lord wants to show only good things to his servants? Yes! Designate affection. That’s it!”
Lincia hurriedly covers her face and speaks gibberish.
Looking at her, Lyncia burst out laughing.
“ha ha ha!”
Lyncia glared at her as she gritted her teeth, but even that was only a pleasure for Lucy.
Lyncia went to visit Fried almost every day after work with utmost sincerity.
It was somewhat awkward to treat it simply as affection as a lord.
At the bureau, Lynchia showed an unconventional move. It was a kiss to Fred Iscobal, the protector of the border. At the place where all the important officials of the empire, including the grand dukes, gathered!
It was to the extent that I couldn’t even count what kind of repercussions it had, and how many gossips Lynthia and Freed had gotten into.
Actually, it was more enjoyable for Lucy to deny her feelings for Lyncia herself.
“I understand. I always support the Empress!”
Lyncia threw the stamp.
“It’s not like that!”
An attack by the Order that occurred during the Directorate.
An army of undead. The appearance of the stingy apostle. and the veil of foreign affairs.
Two weeks have passed since the series of events took place.
The emperor was really upset. As it happened just a month ago in a situation where the shock of the Senate Council meeting had not gone away, the aftermath was great.
Moreover, in both cases, an apostle of the church intervened. If you think about how much influence foreign apostles have in this world, it was truly hopeless.
However, the last surviving Empress, Lyncia Ayrn, and the Royal Guard’s feat of defeating the apostles were enough to make everyone hold the embers of hope.
[ Act 2 – Rat Hole ]
＞ Survival Score +10
It was the same from my point of view.
Looking at the clear phrase floating in front of my eyes, I smiled happily.
He also earned 10 survival points. Since Lincia’s achievement level reached 3, she was able to raise her status by 3 or more.
Most noteworthy was the fact that he had defeated Atral, the stingy apostle, the mid-boss of Act 5. Already in the first act, I felt the great significance of the existence of an apostle. As such, it was a remarkable achievement that one big stumbling block disappeared.
But it’s nothing to be happy about.
“I’m afraid of how twisted the plot will be.”
the apostle died
how much of an impact that would have.
At this point, wouldn’t the original development have no meaning at all?
“Oh, I don’t know.”
yes. What would you do?
It just solves things in front of you step by step.
I saw the preview of the third act floating in the corner of my eye.
[Act 3 – Working Conference]
“First of all, this.”
“It’s noisy. You can’t even sleep.”
I suddenly heard an annoying voice and turned my head to find an elderly man lying in bed wrapped in bandages.
It was Uriard.
It was because I was diagnosed that I had to focus on treatment for over a month as the bones of my body were shattered after being hit by Atral.
Of course, he was not in a position to talk to his in-laws.
It was the same with me being in a hospital bed.
Even with this superhuman body, it was said that he had to rehabilitate for several weeks, so it was clear how much he had abused his body.
I narrowed one eye and said to Uriard.
“It’s not that old that you’re twisting.”
“Huh. You’re a kid. Are you conceited for beating an apostle?”
When Uriard made a sarcastic remark, I smiled.
“So you flew to one of those apostles in three hops?”
“Oh, you’re good, that’s true.”
“This pale young bastard…!”
Watching Uriad tremble with anger, I put a hearty smile on my lips.
Kkondaenom, reverse tours are the most fun.
As I was doing that, I heard the sound of fast footsteps on the other side. Because of Fried’s ears, he could tell them apart.
More than anything, I was a customer who always came in around this time all week.
again and again.
However, the sound of hasty footsteps gradually faded as they approached the hospital room, and they began to take one step at a time.
He seems to be cautious that he might find out his happy intentions.
I laughed out loud like a petty thief.
The owner of the sound stuck out his face through the room.
When I opened my mouth first, Lincia entered through the threshold of the hospital room.
A state of rapid breathing. I could tell just by looking at how fast I was running.
“Are you okay?”
“I’m mostly fine now. I can walk.”
“That’s good. What about Sir Uriard?”
“Thank you for your concern, Your Majesty. This old body still seems too difficult to move.”
When Uriad answered while still wrapped in bandages, Lyncia smiled awkwardly.
Then he dragged the circular chair and put it down.
But instead of sitting on the chair, Lyncia, who was thinking for a while, sat next to my bed.
Lyncia just looked at me without saying a word, so when I tilted her head, she looked the other way.
As I turned my head, the slightly reddened cheeks caught my eye clearly.
“Are you doing well?”
When I started talking, Lyncia nodded as if she had been waiting.
“Yes! I’m doing paperwork now. Mr. Higgins compliments me a lot.”
Lynchia shook her shoulders, as if she was enjoying even having a meaningless conversation.
I heard a small snort from Uriad, who was watching us from behind.
That grandpa is real.
Lynchia looked around to find something more to talk about.
“Huh? What is that? I haven’t seen it before?”
Lyncia, who just in time found something, pointed at me with a bright color.
Following his gaze, he saw a vase. Streamlined vase with spring flowers. It was an expensive looking item.
“Ah, Milia came to visit me in the hospital last night.”
“I gave it as a gift. He said it was a sign of sincerity.”
Another come-and-pick-up method was introduced, so I pushed it a little and left the room as if running away in a hurry.
Remembering that funny back figure made me smile.
Seeing my smile, Lyncia slightly hardened her expression.
After that, there was no word for a long time.
No answer to ask
Lynchia was just looking at the vase.
That too, with an insect-bitten expression.
The silently burning eyes were there.
