“Let’s enter the room first. We will discuss it later. Warren, prepare that thing I ordered you”
“Very well, Your Majesty”
I, Elizabeth, Alen, and Alfred seated around the small table in my study while waiting for tea to be served
“So, from where should I begin?” I probed the amount of information she has about it while sipping the tea.
“Okay, as you already know about the Great racial war that took place in the past and the pact that happened between angel and demon following the great invasion right?”
That’s where everything began, huh!
“Yeah, I know about them and how the kingdom came into existence from the pact and all, but how is it correlated to this?”
Yeah, that’s the common history. You can find it in the kingdom’s history, but now the actual story begins…….
“But there’s a slight change in it. The kingdom was not the derivative of the pact but the pact was the derivative of the kingdom”
This is where the history is tempered, only few people, including me the king know the actual history
“Eh? What do you mean by that?” not coming to terms with the phrase earlier, Alen asked in stupid voice
“You know about the pact right, now the real events that took place in the past are, during the great racial war both side suffered many losses, initially the angels suffered and during the end we demons suffered but not that we couldn’t recovery from it……. But during the end of the Great War, humans betrayed the angels…..”
“But the human side also suffered many losses, right?! Many of their kingdoms fell during the war,” argued Alen in incredulity
“They had suffered some loss, but nothing compared to the angels. During the war, they were backhand support and at the right time, they hit the nail on the wall. They betrayed the angels and back stabbed them, they also attacked demons.”
Everyone’s eyes and ears are glued here. The concentration is so high that even breathing sound can be heard.
“Both demons and angels suffered heavily by their assault, and then out of nowhere carmabrite appeared, humans suffered some great damage even some of their kingdom fell, due to which they had to stop the invasion unwillingly, you may call us lucky,” I said sarcastically “then demons and angels joined hands and created Permarre kingdom.”
“It was……….. Totally unexpected but somehow……… I came to terms with it, but how is it related to Olivia?!” asked Alen, trying hard to digest the truth
“Now here’s the big thing, do you know about angelic element and demonic element?” I asked her the question, expecting the correct answer.
“Yes, they are base existence form which demons and angels were born and also that they eliminate each other.” Answered correctly, with slight doubt in her answer.
“Yes, they are like fire and water, wind and earth they contradict each other and eliminate each other, they can never exist together, it is near impossible for two contrast beings to have a child and more so when the evolutionary hierarchy is high.”
“But then your majesty when magicule antagonism or element antagonism occurs doesn’t that normally destroys the unborn child than how………..” he couldn’t finish the question as he realized that the question is too insensitive to ask, he laid down his eyes in shame.
“I don’t despise you for that. Now the answer to your question is where the pact comes into the picture. The pact was a soul contract which facilitates the assimilation of contrast elements rather than its destruction.”
“Soul contract?! Then the soul required to establish the contract came from…..?” Elizabeth was in dismay over her own question. She realized the source of the soul.
“To stabilize the child between a demon emperor and an archangel, major soul power was needed. Demon emperor sacrificed his soul while the Queen, the archangel, gave away half of her soul.”
“Then do we have to conduct soul contract again, Sieg? If so, then take my soul, the moment I became the grand marshal of the kingdom’s army I had resolved to give my life for the kingdom,” said Alfred while getting on his one knee with his right hand on the kingdom’s insignia on the left side of his military uniform and right hand on his sword hanging on his waist.
Suddenly, the door knocked and everyone got distracted by it.
“It’s Warren, you’re Your Majesty,” warren knocked on the door
“Yes, Warren, come in. Did you get the thing I asked you to bring?”
“Yes, I got it from the treasury as you asked me to” answered warren showing a small case made of magic wood with royal family insignia on it, beautifully decorated with gold and silver throughout the box and the handle made elder treant wood attached to the case with orichalcum and mithril alloy attachment.
“What a beautiful case,” Elizabeth awed in its beauty
“This is your answer, Alfred,” I said confidently, while placing the case on the table
“This case!?” Alen asked curiously
“No, not the case but the thing inside it” I opened the case revealing a crystal bracelet with golden red on one half and silver white on other with their junction mixed beautifully without showing inconsistency in the centre of junction with the sword and chain from the insignia engraved on it.
“Yeah, this thing here is the soul contract.” I hold the bracket in my hand.
“Eh!? Soul contract!? This thing!?” Three of them exclaimed in surprise.
“ye-Yeah, after the soul contract the first queen had it transform into this bracelet from dwarf king, so when element antagonism occurs it helps to facilitate the assimilation,” I retracted a bit due their energy
“I-It has quite an outrageous amount of magic power,” said Alfred in a cold sweat
“Well, Yeah the crystal of the bracelet is from the magic stone of SS class monster storm dragon”
Everyone were surprised, well that is to be expected. It’s not like you get to see SS class monster and their magic stone every day.
I hope no more complications occur.
4 months later…………….
“Your Majesty, calm down a little,” said Alfred
I am anxiously walking back and forth in front of Olivia’s room; you ask why? Olivia underwent labour pain. She is inside the room for 2 hours and the doctors are not letting me in! Even though I’m the king, I’m really helpless in this situation.
“Your Majesty, they will inform us when the child is born, so calm down a little,” warren said with a bitter smile
“Ye-Yeah, I’m very calm”
Suddenly powerful waves of magicules hit us, even though the amount is not that high, but it’s very dense
“Your Majesty, a boy has been born” a lady dressed like nurse hurriedly came from the room and announced the good news.
“Olivia!!” I ran inside the room unbefitting of the king following me behind are Warren and Alfred
“Dear, keep your voice low, baby is sleeping,” Olivia complained strictly while glaring me.
I smiled bitterly as I went near her.
“He is so soft and delicate,” I resolved myself once more to protect my family by any means
“Dear, shall we give him the name we decided?” Olivia asked while patting the sleeping child in her arms……. It’s so cut- Ahem!
“Ye-Yeah, From now on you are Lex, Lex Permarre the first prince of Permarre kingdom.”
