"I would hate you even after death, even if my soul get crushed into pieces." The Macmi empire ruled by the Haydere royal family with the nine gifts from god, the current emperor Oswin Haydere. Cynesige's biggest nightmare. It wasn't something started just yesterday but it also wasn't going to end today. Though he wasn't helpless he wasn't free. Was death the only ending? Was he a coward for thinking of run away? The game of chess was ready but for the first time in his life Cynesige wasn't a player but a chess piece. Who cares queen hold the biggest authority, he told himself repeatedly. _______ "We can start over, right?" The golden haired man sat helplessly on the table, he held the strongest authority in the whole empire. But today the red eyes were dim with no light. "No, we can't. We never will, your imperial majesty." Cynesige smiled with his silver hair covering half of his expression. "The life isn't fair...I never wanted it to be. But if I am going to suffer this way, I also want you to suffer with me...I was the only person you wanted recognition and love from right?" A silence followed at his question, the silver-haired raised his head showing his light blue eyes wet from tears. "I won't...the person you wanted love from will hate you the most. That's the price for my silence in all these years." He lifted the wine glass from the table in the air. "Cheers to our pathetic relationship. Let's both burn in the hell named royal palace." _________ What would happen if most powerful person in the empire decides to destroy your life? You lose everything. No, for Cynesige he didn't lose anything cause there wasn't anything for him to lose. His family was dead leaving his cousin and him as sole survivors. He tossed the title aside on his own not wanting anything to do with the noble social circle. Still nothing to lose or maybe he had something to lose? _______ (P.S. There won't be a romantic relationship between the main couple, but the side couples will have it. Look I have read tons of ducked up romance which didn't even made sense, so I decided to show what would actually happen if a person got in relationship with another who murdered the other's family.) 1)The ending might not be happy for everyone but mc will have a happy ending. 2)The royal family has 9 gifts read them in the first chapter or it won't make sense. 3)The world is different thus different social rules like there is no different in a abduction and marriage which will change with time. 4) The characters are imaginary any relation with the real world is coincidence. (But if you're a emperor shape shifting in your dragon form or a ex-noble with winter magic then congrats you are unique.) 5) Criticism is welcomed but don't hate on me for weird reasons. 'Why is the mc involved in tax fraud? Are you saying tax frauds are okay?' No, of course not Jane, that's called grey characters. 6) There are going to be violence please be aware and don't expect me to romanticize it cause I am not going to do that.
