As he headed to the bedroom door, he made a quick glance at Xerxes. He felt that he couldn't let himself see his friend with such distress in his face.

"I don't normally sleep at this hour, nor do I sleep for a long amount of time. I'll just stay here to make sure you'll sleep soundly. Besides, you need to have enough energy for tomorrow."
Byakuya turned back and sat on the couch once again.
--
[After 10 minutes]
"Still not asleep?"
He walked over to him, and he sat down on the side of Xerxes's bed, avoiding to sit on any of his lord's limbs.

"You do not mind me sitting here, do you? I've stayed at your castle before, and I have seen you weak as you are now. You couldn't do anything until you called for the doctor. Though in such an 'opportunity' like this, I might as well have some sort of chat with you while you're awake."

Xerxes shrugged when Byakuya decided to stay.

"You're right. I should have called for a doctor. I will write a letter now, requesting a doctor." Xerxes sighed. He hated to admit the truth.

He got up and his legs were heavy. He felt the pain in his body, increasing. He walked to the desk and started to write a letter. BUT then, his hands shook so much that he could hardly draw a straight line. He couldn't write, not in this condition.

He hated every minute of this moment of weakness. He threw his pen and returned to his bed.

"Byakuya, do me a favor and help me write the letter." Xerxes hated asking Byakuya to do something he could obviously do on himself.

Xerxes closed his eyes. Maybe, he could catch a second of rest eventhough he was such a light sleeper. After all, he needed to prepare for the council meeting.

Byakuya did what Xerxes told him to do, and suggested that it might be easier if we can find a doctor here.
After finishing the letter, Byakuya decided to study Xerxes's body...
--
A couple moments later, he realized that Xerxes has fallen asleep. A half smile formed on Byakuya's face, knowing that he's now able to sleep in that body of his. He got the blanket from the bed and placed it on Xerxes; he didn't want him to catch a cold.
--
Byakuya also dozed off onto the blanket-less bed.

Xerxes woke up suddenly from his nightmare.

He had that same dream which he hated. His body ached even more than when he first went to sleep. Xerxes saw the letter that Byakuya wrote on the desk, requesting for a doctor.

Xerxes was angry. IF he called for a doctor, everyone would know that there's something wrong with him AND he cannot allow that.

As he was about walk to the desk so that he could tear the letter apart, he realised that he had bruises all over his hands. He puts on his gloves to hide those ugly bruises.

"How I hate this day!" Xerxes cursed.

As soon as Xerxes yelled, Byakuya woke up.

"Having a hard time sleeping, I see..."
He picked up the blanket from the floor and put it back to where it belonged.

"Why are you wearing gloves, cold? If you were cold you could've told me."
He grabbed Xerxes's hands but realized that they were really hot. Now knowing that he lied to him, Byakuya removed the gloves.

"Now... how'd you get this?"

Xerxes hid his hands behind his back. This was the reason why he didn't want Byakuya to sleep in the same room as him. But he knew Byakuya would stay because they were close friends.

"I'm fine." Xerxes lied.

No one even his sister knew about his bruises because he hid so well. But now, his secret is out. However, he knew Byakuya would not say a word about this...would he?

Xerxes pointed to the torn pieces of paper, "I decided not to call for a doctor after all."

She can’t remember the time that let reminded her to the past, the fire, her family, nor even now, the time that Aryl hasn’t by her side encouraging her. Part of her courage; come from her knight, who always gives her a push when she has doubt. No fear have ever stay, until now, when her knight has no where around here.

Aurelia have decision to made, for the sake of whole Antoweif. The burden her family left for her is too much, but that will not break the hope that has brought to this Volstram family now. The only hope, to help those people, is to change the reality now, she must has the power in order to do so — the throne. Must not break the promise, the only promise that she rely on until now.

“Sorry doesn’t mean anything. I know it, but I will say it too, when I meet you later…”

Since three month ago, Aurelia went to many places, to investigate the truth or the true reason that hide behind the King’s death. She knows somewhere went wrong, but she can’t just sense what’s wrong. So she left for a long period, hiding this decision from everyone, including the person she trusts the most in this sinful land. Aurelia doesn’t want to let her worry for herself, this loyal knight will has stop her if knowing her take action like now.

“I know you will understand...Aryl…I hope so…”

She went back to Antoweif after Aryl and her team left for capital. A bit late, isn’t it? Maybe is just perfect timing when she arrives at there. Order people not to apprise Knight Yyurl, a big “surprise” for her later……before she lefts, the wind suddenly sends her a message, a
winkled maple leaf. A smile quickly appears on her face, present for Aryl.

Although the truth can’t be unveil now, but the time won’t let it pass so easily, Aurelia will not let it happen. By the time truth lies in front of everyone’s eyes, the throne will be hers, is now or never ……

Damien entered & took a glance. Most of the Council members are present & judging from the empty seats, the only ones left most definitely belonged to the other nobles.

All the better then. He thought as he strode to the table under the watchful eyes of the council members. However instead of his usual seat, he took the place at the head of the table - A seat reserved for only the King.

"This is blasphemy to the late King & cannot be tolerated." A council member graying in age stood up & spluttered.

"Your Lordship" Another member stood up & bowed. "Perhaps you have mistaken but that seat is reserved for the rightful ruler of Valusia. By this do you intend to usurp the position from its rightful heir?"

"Oh I have not mistaken anything. Usurp the throne? Its nothing like that" He answered breezily "Have you realized that it might be you who have mistaken?" He glanced at them

"Members of the council," Damien stood up, his voice now serious," The fact still stands that the late King has not produced an heir. Therefore in an event where there is none rightful, It is my right as descendants of the royal blood to claim the position of the King!"

At this, the chamber has become abuzz with voices.

"I, Lord Damien Antonio Castelle, descendants of the First King claim the right to the throne by reason of blood & hierarchy as the highest in position in absence of the King" Damien's voice now ringing with authority.

"I don't think it'd be smart to leave it be... I can look at it for you, I brought some bandages and a medical case in my bag just in case something would happen while we're here. This could be our little secret, your sister might be worried about you if she saw this.

Byakuya took Xerxes's hands...

Lunette barged into her brother room to tell him about the council meeting. She saw Xerxes and Byakuya already awake. She saw her brother bruised hands.

To Xerxes surprise, Lunette already knew about his bruised hands. Lunette isn't an idiot, she can see and she do know when she sees something.
Xerxes sighed, his secret wasn't much of a secret.

"We should have called a doctor." Lunette sighed, looking at his bruised hands.

"I'm fine." Xerxes lied.

"The council meeting has begun. We have to be there, NOW!" Lunette told her brother.

Xerxes got up and was about to leave when he felt a sudden sharp pain in his arms and legs. He sat down.

"Lunette, make me my herbal tea. Then, we'll leave for the council meeting" Xerxes face was pale.

Lunette nodded her head. She knew what her brother meant by herbal tea. Herbal tea is Xerxes way of asking for his medicine. Lunette could tell he was in pain, it was all written on his face.

Quickly, she prepared the medicine. Xerxes drank it, fast.

"Come. Shall we attend the council meeting?" Xerxes smiled at Lunette and Byakuya.

Xerxes barged into the council room with Lunette and Byakuya behind him.

"Forgive me. I'm a little late as I have other business to attend to." Xerxes smiled and walked confidently to an empty seat.

Xerxes sat down on the chair and tapped his walking stick, "How rude of me, I haven't introduce myself. I am Xerxes Millefiore Lux, the Marquis De Myria. Nice to meet you."

Xerxes continued to smile. Eventhough his body still hurts, he pretended that it didn't bothered him. Xerxes knew how to act and he would give a brilliant show to them all. He would now be the most confident, strong and healthiest man you have ever seen. After all, those are the qualities of a king and he wants the throne.

"Ah so we meet at last," Damien greeted him cordially. "Lord Xerxes I presume, I am Damien Antonio Castelle of Elysion & you must be Lady Lunette. We meet again."

"Lord Xerxes," A council member rose & bowed in recognition of his superiority. "The matter at hand is Lord Damien's intention to ascend the throne of Valusia." He informed Xerxes.

"Oh so you believe that you should be our King?"

"For the sake of the whole Antoweif, this is the most farcical thing that I have ever heard. Isn't, Knight Yyurl?"

At that moment, all people's attention draw by the person who appears in a sudden, is her, The Earl of Antoweif.

"My Lady !?"

She reply her shock with a smiling face , Knight Yyurl was so shocked and stuns in the corridor who connects here from her chamber. A moment before, she did try to find Aurelia in this castle, but nothing results. Now, her lady stands in front of her, showing her a face that everything are alright.

"Yyurl, don't just stand there, don't you welcome me back?"

"Ye....Yes, my lady."

Then, Aurelia accompanied by Knight Yyurl, walking graciously into the chamber,every sight in this room followed them. She sits at the only empty seat in this chamber. There is no other candidates better than Aurelia, to be the King. Finally, the three nobles meet in officially.

"Well, I suppose, this is Lord Damien? And this is Lord Xerxes and Lady Lunette.Greetings,everyone. I'm Aurelia Estelle Volstram, The Earl of Antoweif."

Then, starts to get into the most important issue.Knight Yyurl stands beside her, carefully observing everyone here. Some have calm down, some nervously looked the other two Lord, the remain ones hears Aurelia words cautiously.

"About the matter had discussed just now, do others members agree with it? Do the candidates over here really qualifies for the King's position?"

Her question directly point to the other two nobles, putting them into such a condition.

"I, Aurelia Estelle Volstram, challenge you Lord Damion, and you Lord Xerxes to a fair match, the winner should able to win and has the qualities to be the next ruler of Valusia."

Xerxes smirked, hearing Aurelia challenge and Damien announcement of wanting the throne.

"Ah, a challenge. What sort of challenge?" Xerxes continued smirking. He is very amused with all this.

And so the game begins. Xerxes wondered how the game will unravel and who would be the winner. Xerxes is not surprised that each of them want the throne. After all, who doesn't want such great power if they know it's within them.

Xerxes wondered who will push themselves to win and who had edge. In a game, it's all about taking risks. Xerxes glanced at them and wondered who was a better risk taker.
Xerxes felt that he had the edge. He would be the risk taker. He would take any risks and it would be fine. WHY? Because he was dying and all this doesn't matter to him. And the fact that he is not afraid of dying, he pretty much is fearless. What could be worst than death?

After all, years of waiting for his death has taught something valuable which is death is inevitable. It will come so it doesn't really matter what you do when you're alive.

Actually, he doesn't need the throne but he wants it anyway.

Byakuya stood there silently behind Xerxes and Lunette. He had nothing to say, nothing to do. He noticed that Xerxes didn't feel any fear. He believed that Xerxes was almost shaking in excitement.

What is this about a match? 'a fair match?' What does he mean by that? Will they have an 'all for one' showdown amongst themselves? And what would happen if one, such as Xerxes, would lose? Would he die? Head cut off, or slain by the winner? Byakuya felt a cold sweat rinning down his cheek.

Why am I here? Oh, yes, to see one of my greatest friends win the throne...
