Damien stood up & bowed as per gentleman custom dictates. "Greetings Lady Aurelia, Its a pleasure to finally meet the Earl."

"A fair challenge..." Damien was deep in thought. "In what terms do you, Lady Aurelia & Lord Xerxes challenge my right of accession? Say them now in the presence of the Council so that we may hear them ."

"Pray tell." Xerxes smirked and tapped his walking stick once again.

Xerxes somewhat looks up to Aurelia. She became Earl at the age of 8 or 9 after her family death. And she is a female, nonetheless. It must been hard for her to keep the title since she was a girl and too young at that time. BUT somehow, she managed to own it.

She looks so elegant and strong. Something Xerxes wish for his sister. Lunette was sometimes too hesitant and kind. However, Xerxes knows that when he dies, Lunette would make a great marquis. After all, she's been trained since birth to inherit that title. Lunette is a fine young lady, intelligent and healthy. Xerxes know she would be a great marquis when he dies.

Damien on the other hand, does not scare Xerxes. Xerxes found out that Damien inherited the title Duke when he was 13. A mature age to inherit a title. However, he lost his parents. Still, Xerxes didn't pity him.

If it was anyone who understood pain, it was him or Aurelia or Lunette. This was what Xerxes believed.

However, Xerxes knew Damien would be a hard rival. He was older than him and he held the title Duke, supposedly higher ranking to a marquis. Xerxes isn't too worried with Aurelia because she may be older but she is female. And the council would prefer a king than a queen at any time of the day unless the rules changed or become more flexible.

"Oh, this will be interesting." Xerxes whispered to himself.

They all had one thing in common which was their parent's death.

"Don't ever underestimated her."

Whispers in Knight Yyurl's heart. Her master excels in everything that she knows, a quick learner and a wise leader. Aurelia won't own the title for nothing. The two other lord, yes, they are excellent, but it will come to an end when it meets Aurelia's virtue. Gender means nothing. She stronger than any men. For her, the only rival in just her own self. Lord Xerxes is sick (she knows it, when she attend Lord Xerxes's family funeral ,a sad memory to remember.) Lord Damien, is just having the title of Duke to claim King's throne.

A moment later, she continues her dialogue.

"Holding the highest Title, doesn't means it have the right to claim the throne. "

A serious face appear after a while, Lord Damien doesn't seem very satisfied with the answer.

“Why don't we let the citizens of Valusia to choose their king?"

A perfect fair match indeed.

They didn't understand. No one does. Wealth & status meant nothing to him. What he's after is higher than that. Damien doesn't need anyone's pity. He was much stronger than that. As lord of Elysion, he refuse to allow personal feelings to cloud his judgment. Not anyone,not anything, not even Isla.

Damien eyed at his competitors - Xerxes & Aurelia. The three of them with only a year or two in age difference - connected by a single fact. Had they realized, they would see that the circumstance that killed their parents were meant to kill them as well & thus eliminating the Three Noble Houses in its entirety.

He spent many years investigating but was hampered by lack of authority beyond Elysion. But now that his chance has arrived & he will not relent. If anyone wishes to surpass him let them try.

Xerxes smiled. Let valusia choose their king? A brilliant idea at the same time, it's not something easy to perform. After all, valusia is split into three main region. And of course, the people would always support their region lord. Therefore, it wouldn't be too simple.

Xerxes tapped his walking stick once more, "So we let the people choose their king?"

Lunette was worried. She knew that they didn't need the throne. IT wasn't important and yet her brother was here, fighting for it.

What if they lost? Will they lose everything? Will he die? Will they die?

Questions ran through her mind.

However, she knew one thing. Her brother would never pledge loyalty to the new king if it wasn't him. And that worried her.

Damien turned to Aurelia with mild interest. "So how do you propose we can compete fairly since you are already at a disadvantage."

Not waiting for her response, Damien continued, "Warfare is virtually impossible as your army is incapable of land warfare. Besides the fact that infighting will is a waste of resources & is of not benefit to us at all." Damien reasoned.

"Unless you can come up with a way that we can all agree on, this council will disband with a stalemate."

Xerxes smirked, "Indeed, it will end in a stalemate if you do not suggest anything better."

A stalemate in a council meeting. How interesting.

Now whatever will happen now. Xerxes is amused and is eager to know.

On the other hand, bad and scary thoughts ran through Lunette mind. She knew that she had to talk to him, maybe she could persuade him to forget about the throne or perhaps, he could explain to her further why he wanted the throne.

And if she couldn't persuade him, she would ask byakuya to talk to him. Byakuya is the only person who could reason with her brother without getting angry or annoyed.

"What I mean is, not they the citizens of Valusia will choose us, they will JUDGE us."

"Judge?What do you mean by judge?"

One of them council member stood up, expressing his thought on his face. Like a moment before, Lord Damien and Lord Xerxies have so much intres with the topic she starts. If now she doesn't decide how to get the throne, she never have that chance again.
Not need to be panic, just nothing to be afraid. She fears nothing.

"We will complete with each other, in all perspective, in all ways. "


__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Some thought last for so many years, she has keep it all along. Not for everyone, but her promise towards someone. The one who always stay by her side, who will never betray her no matter what, the one who nearly has the same faith with her. She hates pride, power, glory, this is the things she does not want at all when she was a young child.

Aurelia trained well in all kind of things. Sword fighting, horse riding, archery skills, a lady should have her manner in what ever situation. Said her father. She never truly felt the love from her family towards her, parents like to demand her to do things she dislikes; her brothers jealous her outstanding talent, no one have ever really cares about her in that family. Unfortunately, she was force to put on the family's burden after all.

"Judge?" Damien's curiosity just went up another notch & he is sure that the entire council feels the same.

"Are you suggesting we have a public competition? Even so how do you suppose they will vote?" Damien bombarded Aurelia with questions. "And how do you suppose that our individual skills can prove our capability to rule?" Damien challenged Aurelia further.

"I'm sure they would have their wisdom in other to do so. Why not a public competition?Lord Damien, our individual skills not only the ONLY perspetive they will judge,but also, we will try to impress them with our wisdom."

She glares back towards Lord Damien,reply his chellenge strongly.As the Council's member feels the fire between they both, they silents until Lady Aurelia finish her talking.

"Or Lord Damien,what will stop you from participate some public competition like this?"

"Are you saying that I'm avoiding a public contest?" Damien spoke coolly not betraying his emotions. "What I'm saying is Wisdom alone is not enough to prove a persons capabilities to rule. What you need is leadership & strength to face the challenges ahead. I'm sure an Earl like you should understand this well."

"And who do you propose will judge us fairly. The people's views matter but right here, we - Lord Xerxes & I are at an disadvantage." Damien revealed.

"I'm sure you have studied the possibilities of your success here. Your region being the nearest to the Capital is having the most influence over its people. How do you suggest that being fair?

Suddenly, Xerxes felt his body disobeying him once more. The pain became so excruciating and Xerxes knew he couldn't keep on smiling or faking it. Xerxes gripped his walking stick tightly, he had to do something before everyone can see his pain and know about his sickness. He will not show them his sickness. He REFUSE too.

Xerxes stood up, "I agree with lord Damien. It will not be fair to us. Excuse me but I have other matters to attend to."

Quickly, he barged out of the council room and hurried to his own room. Lunette and Byakuya followed him. In his room, he sat down on his bed, tired. His body felt worse every second.

Lunette begged, "Brother, we don't need this. We don't need the throne. Why can't we be content with being the marquis? I don't want you to get hurt. The consequences of not winning the throne will be too great to bear."

"Silence. I have decided." Xerxes sighed. His sister picked a bad timing to argue.

"But brother---- " Lunette was interrupted.

"---hush now." Xerxes shook his head as he picked up an invitation to a ball on his bed sheets.

"What is that?" Lunette asked, curious.

"An invitation to a ball, tonight." Xerxes frowned.

"A ball?!" Lunette was shocked. She didn't like balls too much.

"Better be prepared. You should go. And if you want to continue your argument tomorrow, you better go to that ball." Xerxes smiled.

Lunette rolled her eyes. As she walked away, she whispered to Byakuya, "Please reason with him and make him withdraw from fighting for the throne if you share my worries."

The moment Lunette left. Xerxes feel his heart pounding and his body aching so painfully. He could hardly move. His joints stiffened.
Xerxes coughed and he pulled his handkerchief to cover his mouth.

Then, Xerxes saw blood on his handkerchief. He hid it behind his back.

"Ugh" He whispered.

He knew it. His body still haven't recovered from travelling such a far distant and things got worse as his body isn't used to the weather here.
Xerxes sighed.

This is the reason why he hated travelling.

"Since Lord Xerxes left, this meeting can't be continue anymore. Any arguments and suggestion will be continue in the next meeting."

One of the council member stands and said, he is pioneer council member, holds the most power among the other. (Except the three nobles). Nothing shall be continue, so the position of the King will not be settle yet. Aurelia sighs, her wish do not full fill yet. No more to speak and she left with her knight.

"My Lady, we should attend a ball later."

"As far as I concern, the others will go to, we shall not miss the chance to understand them well. By the way, Aryl, write a letter to Commander Tsuki, ask her about the situation of Antoweif. I quite worry about it."

"Yes, my Lady....Arh..Lia.."

A name she would call when nobody around. A name for he only knight to call. She sense a sudden change of Aryl's expression, do something bothers her?

"I saw blood. Xerxes... you should know that if you continue on stuggling... you will only delay the meetings. You might've lost the fight before it even started, losing consciousness due to your loss of blood."

Byakuya sighed heavily. He was afraid that something like this would happen.

"I don't allow myself to see you in this condition. Unless you have some sort of medication, I will let you fight your fight."

Byakuya reached for Xerxes's chest. He felt is heart throbbing rapidly. Like Lunette, Byakuya felt that fighting for the throne will be too risky for Xerxes, no matter how willing he was to win it. Sadly, Byakuya should talk his friend out of it. He can't stand to see Xerxes hurt himself...

"Your heartbeats are getting faster by the second."
