Summary: “That which resides within the folds of these chambers is the affair of the Emperor only. Do not concern yourself with it, Captain. You will do well to avert your gaze from such matters if you value your life and all that is dear to you. You see nothing, and you hear nothing.”
Captain Y. Jung, the South’s most ruthless army leader and valued military tactician could not have foreseen the horrors that faced him upon his arrival at the Imperial Palace. Nor could he have known of the dangers of falling into the lull of compassion.
What secrets were hidden behind those Silk robes? And did he dare try to find out?( Collapse )
1 -Striking Innocence
The Emperor’s palace had been lit in honour of the noble Captain’s recent victory against the Northern hostile legions. Lanterns lit the expanse of the Imperial Lands, an atmosphere of victorious celebration in the air. Emperor Lee had personally received him from his voyage - such was his value to the Empire’s dominating status over the nations. Captain Jung had spent the entirety of the day in the Palace’s White Marble Ball Room. It was a sight to behold, made specifically to show off the grandeur of the Emperor’s taste in artistry. For all its glory, the Captain had not had the chance to appreciate, fully, the work of art that was the entire structure of the towering marble walls. A shame, he thought, for he had a soft spot in his heart for such beauties.( Collapse )
