Chapter 31: 31
"TILLY, have you taken your medicine?"


"Uh-huh," Tilly answered while fixing Kiho's tie . They were currently in her room because a while ago, he came to check if she drank her medicine . When she noticed that his tie wasn't tied properly, she fixed it for him . "Did you get your lunch box?"

"Yes," Kiho said . "Thank you for preparing the menu for my everyday lunch . "

She smiled at him . "You're welcome . "

It had been a week since she moved into Kiho's residence .

Ever since then, she had been taking bridal lessons every single day . Those lessons included stitching, dancing, flower arrangement, and organizing tea parties . Since she was already a high-ranking noble who received education since childhood, she didn't need to take etiquette classes .

During her free time, she would design jewelries for her upcoming store . And about the interior for the store itself…

"Kiho, do you have a scheduled plan for you next day-off?" Tilly asked after she was done fixing the captain's tie .

Kiho thanked her before he answered her question . "No . Do you want to go somewhere?"

"Not really . I'd like to ask for your help," she said . "I'm going to open up a new jewelry store soon . I know that you're busy but if you have spare time, would like help me design the store? I already hired an architect but I would need help for interior designing . And if you know a place where we can buy high-quality materials, I can also use some suggestions . "

His eyes sparkled in delight . "Of course, I'd love to help . I know a thing or two about interior designing . "

She knew that very well . In her past life, Kiho would redecorate some of the extra rooms in their mansion whenever he had free time . He would even create furniture if he couldn't find a particular design that he was looking for .

Before, she thought his love for interior designing and furniture making were useless skills . But now, she'd love to work with him and that talent of his .

"Great," she said with a smile . "Then, should we also visit the building on your day-off? The architect was almost done with the blueprint . " It was the same architect who designed most of her father's stores . He modeled her new building from the previous store that their family built so he finished up with the design pretty fast . "I heard that they will start the construction tomorrow . "

The construction of buildings in this world was faster compared to the construction in the modern world . If the modern world used equipments to build, in this empire, they used magic . It was pretty amazing to watch .

"Then, let's go out on my day-off," Kiho said, his usual monotonous voice sounding a little bit livelier now . "We can also go shopping if you want . "

She smiled and nodded at his suggestion . "Sure, let's do that . "

Last week, they shopped clothes and toys for Flint and Julian . They sent the children's stuff to the Fire Wielder Guild . Would it be weird if she bought clothes for the kids again?

Let's write them a letter first .


"Ah, right," the captain said as if he remembered something . "Are you going to the royal palace later?"

She almost scowled at the reminder .

[Right, Princess Nia sent me another invitation for a tea party a few days ago . ]

But this time, she wasn't the only person invited . The tea party was for the young ladies from the houses belonging to the Royal Faction .

"Yes, I'll be attending the Her Royal Highness's tea party," she said . "Why do you ask?"

"Can I pick you up after the party?" he asked and for some reason, he looked excited . "I'd be going to the royal palace to report to His Majesty later . I was thinking that it would be nice if we go home together . "

"Oh, I like that," she said with a smile . "I'll send you a message once the tea party starts to wrap-up . "

"Understood .

"Wait," she said, then made him sit on the bed . "I'll show you the necklace I'll wear later . See if it looks good on me . "

"I'm not an expert on that field but I'll try to give a sensible remark . "

She just laughed at that . "Don't look," she told him while she was walking towards the vanity .

Kiho, as cute as he was, closed his eyes .

[Gosh, he's so adorable!]

She sat in front of the mirror and quickly put on the two necklaces that she prepared last night . First, she wore the dangling necklace that had a tear-shaped pendant . Then, she wore a short pearl necklace– a dainty chain with three tiny pearls– like a choker .

After she was done, she stood in front of Kiho .

"Baby, you may open your eyes now," she told him . When he opened her eyes, she pointed at her neck . "How do these necklaces look on me?"

"Your neck is pretty," Kiho said out of the blue while looking intently at her neck .

That made her blush .

"Baby, focus on my necklaces," she lightly complained .


"They look pretty," he said, then he looked up at her face with shining eyes . "Baby, are those the necklaces I got for you from Pillas?"

"I'm glad you noticed," she said while gently touching the pearls . "I kind of changed them a bit to look like this . The pendants I chose are smaller compared to the jewelries I used to wear . Are they noticeable?"

"The tiny pendants made them look dainty," the captain said . "And your neck is pretty so anything you wear on them will look pretty as well . "

She couldn't help but smile at that . "Thank you, baby," she said . Then, she sat on his lap and wrapped her arms around his neck . After that, she gave him a kiss on the cheek . "Thank you also for the necklaces . They inspired me to make my new collection . "

"You're welcome, baby . I'm glad to be of help," he said, then he gazed down at her neck with hungry eyes while his hand was sliding up and down her waist . "May I…?"

Tilly giggled because she knew what he wanted to do . "Go ahead . "

And Kiho started to give her open mouth kisses on the neck .

[Good morning to me . ]

AFTER Kiho's work, he went straight to Amilo's . It was a small jewelry store owned by the empire's greatest jewelry maker . But not everyone knew that because Amilo's was a rundown shop in the poor district of the empire . And the jewelries they sold were mostly cheap and fake .

But Amilo, the owner, was a good friend of his . He once saw the old man turn a rock into a fine ring . That was why Amilo was the first person he thought when he got the pearl .

And he didn't regret it .

"This looks great, Amilo," Kiho said genuinely while looking at the pearl ring inside the small box he was holding . He couldn't believe that the "pearl cube" that he found was now turned into a smooth and round pearl . "As expected of you and your skills . "

Amilo, a grumpy old man who hated compliments, just scoffed at him . Gray hair, dark brown eyes, good built . He could tell that the jewelry maker used to be a dashing man in his younger years . "I used the finest materials that suit the pearl you brought . You better compensate me properly . "

"Of course," he said while putting the small box in the inner pocket of his jacket . Then, he lifted the medium-sized chest of gold that he brought and put it on the table . "Would this be enough, Mr . Amilo?"

The old man gave him a strange look . "You're the only fool in this empire who would pay that much for a sham like me . "

"I know that you're the real deal," he said . And he was aware that Amilo had a poor living condition because he would donate his earnings to an orphanage every month . He knew that Amilo would put his money to good use . "And the payment I'm giving you couldn't be enough to show my gratitude . Thank you for making a beautiful ring for my beloved . "

"Is "Lady Prescott" the beloved you're talking about?"

"Yes," he said almost right away . "Have you heard about my lovely fiancée?"

The old man hesitated before he finally spoke . "I heard a nasty rumor about your fiancée . "

His forehead knotted in confusion . The coldness he felt told him right away that he wouldn't like what he would hear . But still, he needed to know . "What rumor?"

"Apparently, Lady Prescott is having a sexual affair with Captain Denver . "

When Kiho was angry, he wouldn't scream or get violent .

He would simply freeze his surroundings– sometimes on purpose, but often not .

[Just like now . ]

The anger he felt materialized in the form of a thin layer of ice that covered the whole store in an alarming speed .

"Hey!" the old jewelry maker complained . "Don't freeze up my shop!"

"Who?" he asked in a voice colder than his ice . "Who said that gibberish?"

Amilo gulped, fear cracking his usual grumpy face . "W-What are you going to do if I tell you?"

"I'll cut their throat, of course," Kiho said menacingly . "I'll cut their throat so they couldn't speak gibberish against my Tilly again . "

"THE rumor has already spread in the whole empire, hasn't it?"

"My friends from another household were talking about it last night . "

"Do you think Lady Prescott is really having an affair with Captain Denver?"

"Well, if I were the madam, I would cheat on Captain Kiho as well! I mean, Captain Kiho is a commoner with filthy blood . His good looks will fade when he gets old . If he loses the only nice thing about him, then what would be left of him?"

"Ah, that's right . If he doesn't pay a huge amount of money, I wouldn't be working for a commoner like him . "

Tilly had enough listening to that bullshit .

But to be honest, she intentionally went to the dirty kitchen in secret because she knew that the two "rats" would be there . In her past life, she remembered that two maids from Kiho's residence would talk shit about the captain . These two women would also spread rumors that would hurt Kiho's reputation .

[Sorry, girls, but I'll f*ck you up this time . ]

When she noticed that the two maids were missing, she knew right away that they would be hiding in the dirty kitchen to talk shit about Kiho . That was why she intentionally asked Louisa, the head maid, to come with her to the dirty kitchen in pretense of looking for something in the cupboard .

As soon as they got there, the two rats were already talking . Louisa wanted to stop them but she told head maid to wait because she wanted to listen .

[Gosh, where did the rumor about me and Captain Denver come from?]

"That sounds interesting," Tilly said when she finally announced herself to the rats . "Care to share the rumor with me?"

As expected, the maids looked shocked when they saw her .

"How dare you speak ill of the master of the house with your filthy mouth?" Louisa sternly scolded the maids . In her past life, she remembered that the head maid was one of the few servants who genuinely respected Kiho . In fact, Louisa never hesitated to humiliate her whenever she was acting like a bitch in the past . "Do you want to die?"

The two rats immediately dropped down to their knees . They even bowed so low that their foreheads touched the floor . "Please forgive us, Lady Prescott!"

"Not even god could save you from my wrath," Tilly said coldly . She was so angry that her chest felt warm again . To be honest, she was afraid that she might faint again . But she couldn't control her anger . They didn't only insult her by assuming that she was cheating on Kiho with Captain Denver . They also insulted her fiancé, the master that they were supposed to be serving . "Before I kick you out, tell me everything you heard about that nasty rumor, you rats . "

NIA was surprised when the candle inside the hour glass suddenly lit up in red flame . It was placed on her table so she could keep an eye on it while she was working . And finally, after a long time, what she had been waiting for had come .

Red was the coolest flame and the one that signified the beginning of the "process . "

[She's really angry, huh?]

"Congratulations, Your Royal Highness," Lahara, who was standing beside her, said while bowing to her . "Spreading that nasty rumor seems to be effective . "

Nia smiled while looking at the lovely flame . "Lady Prescott really has a bad temper . "
