"Don't you worry about me. I'll be fine. I survived for 17 years despite this condition" Xerxes smiled.

Xerxes sighed. He didn't hide the blood quick enough for Byakuya NOT to see it.

"Byakuya, let me fight for the throne. I want to see how far I can push. I want to see this little game unravel. I want to know who wins at the end of the day."

"But I should worry about you; you're my lord, or at least the one I'm supporting in this fight. I know you well enough that you won't be satisfied unless the winner will be you."

Byakuya waited a moment.

"Fine, I will let you fight."

"You know me well. Yes, I won't be satisfied until I win. But if I do die in a middle of all this, help me take care of Lunette." Xerxes took Byakuya hand.

"You won't die, I won't let you die."

Byakuya frowned and moved closer to Xerxes.

Xerxes smirked, "You can try but there's no stopping death. IT will come when it comes. Death can never be stopped, not even if you are the strongest person in this whole world. I say, leave it be. Byakuya, you will get hurt if you try to stop death and fail. So, don't."

What everyone didn't know was that Xerxes secretly longed for death. He was tired of being ill and feeling the aches that his body gives him.
If he died, it will all end and that's exactly what he wants.

If fighting for the throne might kill him, he will take that risk. After all, he isn't afraid of death but instead desire it.

"Death is to be feared; you'll never know how you will die. It doesn't matter if I get hurt, my wounds usually heal quickly. It sounds as if you want to die, but you shouldn't do it on purpose. Think about the people who love you... the people who care about you. We'd be devastated if you died."

Byakuya put his hand on Xerxes's shoulder.

"Be careful."

The council members bowed & left the council chamber, leaving Damien to his thoughts. There is something going on with Xerxes - something that he can't quite place. But for now, there isn't much to do but to wait & see.

He will be returning to Elysion soon. The chair of the Duke cannot be left empty for to long lest there are people who become over ambitious. Now that he has seen Lady Aurelia, it seems that he should keep a watchful eye on her too.

Damien did a mental note as he left the chamber. Ah it seems there is a banquet tonight is there. He heard that this one is open to the public. This is his chance to gauge his success.

Isla was deep in her thoughts as her servants began dressing her for the banquet later. She was dressed in a simple light blue dress that accentuate the blue of her eyes. Her accessories were a single bloom weaved into her caramel hair & perhaps a gold bracelet that belonged to her mother...though her servants would've love to dress their lady more elaborately.

She wondered how the proceedings went but her questions need not wait any longer as one of her servants informed her of her brother's return. Damien turned her eyes to her as she entered his chambers. He was just getting ready for the banquet later. He has not lost yet. The banquet is a great chance of gaining support & to introduce himself as their possible future lord.

"Ah, I see that you are prepared." Damien noticed.
"Brother how did the council go?" Isla questioned, getting straight to the point.
"The decision have not been made yet however, the banquet is an opportunity we should grab"

Now Isla could see, her brother changed. The throne never mattered so much to him before.

"Why do you want the throne?" Isla knew she was venturing to dangerous waters & she was right when his eyes darkened & became unreadable. He turned his back to her & answered." It does not concern you."

Isla knew her meeting with ehr brother was over for today.

Commander Tsuki knew it'll be a stalemate in the council meeting. She could predict this happening. The chess board laid still on her study table with a stalemate. All she could do now is checkmate on a stalemate. But how. She was in deep thought when a knock on the door interrupts her trail of thoughts. A messenger held a letter in his hand informing her a letter from Knight Yyurl. She smiled as everything was going as she thought. The evening sun is setting down, the sky is painted in orange. She shall attend the ball tonight. And to meet her Lady in person. She prepares herself well for tonight's ball. Everything must go as planned, as the late King wish. His last wish should be fulfilled. And Commander Tsuki will ensure of it. So let the play fall apart. She was again deep in thoughts, gazing on the sky as darkness engulf the sky. Tonight will be starry. She gazes at the sky and continue her thoughts as she is preparing for the ball. After dressing up and fetch a chariot to the ball.

"This would be another troublesome matter ne..." she whispered silently to herself, doubting if she could complete "the task".

"Yes it would, care to share some thoughts?" her close companion pop out from no where watching her every motion with concern.

"I'll be fine." a simple reply with seriousness. She rested her head on her companion's shoulder and play with her trends of hair.

"Ne..Shin..." tenderly I breathe out her companion's name. She seemed inconceivable and she sensed the changes in Tsuki's mood.

She wanted to say more but better left the commander with her thoughts. The letter clutched in her hand. As she fell asleep in the chariot on Shin's comfy shoulder.

The chariot is on the way to the ball which is miles away from where they are.

Xerxes smiled. He believed that no one would be devastated if he died. After all, he didn't know much people and weren't involve with their lives. He was a nobody in their hearts.

"I'll be careful but death will come. Byakuya, wounds never heal because they leave a scar at the end of the day. My dear friend be careful, you shouldn't hurt yourself too much."

Lunette was in the garden, her mind still trying to figure out her brother's reason for the throne.

She sighed because she knew that she would support her brother no matter his reason or crime. He is the only family she has left

A servant came to Lunette and asked her to be prepared for the ball.

Lunette shrugs and went to her room to prepare herself. She hates balls and she wished she could miss it.

---

Xerxes closed his eyes, "Do me a favor,Byakuya. Can you attend the ball on my behalf? You will represent me. I'm not interested in balls but I need someone to represent me and keep an eye out for Lunette. Just make sure Lunette isn't being too disagreeable. Can you do that?"

It was as though Damien's heart froze over when Isla spoke of the past. Over the years, no matter how many time, he could never yield to her request. He is willing to give her anything she asked for...except this. Not this. To speak of it...it was just too much. He knew that it wasn't fair for her not to know. It was her right but this is for her benefit. If only she knew.

"Why don't you bring me along with you? You know is very dangerous when you go alone by yourself?"

She nearly yell at her, which is never happen before.
Silents remains. Aurelia never expect Aryl's respond will be like this. She thought Aryl will stay clam and settles everything fine. Wrong, totally wrong. The one only thing that she miss, she never thought of her feeling, fret about her until herself get slender. Aryl is waiting for her answer or explain.

Aurelia walk closer to her, a finger lands on Aryl's lips to tell her not to speak. Her mouth get closer to Aryl's ear. Words flew into it carefully without a fail.

"Aryl, I'm sorry... I couldn't bare to let you face the risk as I'm facing now. You're the person in this land i treasure the most, I don't want you to get hurt."

Something in her heart almost tell the same thing, making tears roll in her eyes, Aurelia quickly wipe out the tears roll down from her cheek. Don't cry and promise me you never do it again,she said. Aryl just cant help it for a while, she is too worry about her. But she calm as soon as her master demands. Aryl is not that weak, and she just can't find another better way to express her feelings.

"Let's hurry to the ball, shall we?"
"Yes, My Lady."

Aryl replied it confidently like usual. She holds her hand swiftly run towards their private wing. Have a ball to catch.
All matters to her is only Aurelia.

They arrived The Castle of Antoweif within an hour...Commander Tsuki did nothing along the journey but fell into deep slumber on Shin's shoulder.

Before going to the ball. She goes to the private wing and waits patiently for a person arrival. Waiting. Thinking. She fell asleep again but this time on her companion thigh. When the wooden door of the private wing opened and two familiar figure appeared in the door way. Commander grimaced a little and was fully aware the presence of Lady Aurelia and Knight Yyurl. She was fully awake and bowed to the Lady which earn her a chuckled from her.

"You are so cute while sleeping." Knight Yyurl grimaced at her Lady comment. Tsuki blushed a little and tried to restrain her cool composure.

"My Lady nice to see you again...and Knight Yyurl nice to see you again as well. My Lady, I've received the letter from you earlier today. Truth to be said it is quite amusing, to have a stalemate on the council meeting this morning." Commander could see Lady Aurelia's disbelieve, but she continue with a thoughtful smile.

"My Lady there's people you must not underestimate their abilities, they cover their base very well.'' this is an advise for Aurelia.

"Ok then.Lets head to the ball and have fun for now ne..."she gently smile.

Commander Tsuki is a determine person, rational, always giving her useful advice. Like just now. A compliment for a person who she haven't seen for so many months, is the reward for her for taking care Antoweif so well after they both left. She excuses herself a moment, walk into another room just beside her. For choosing the gown she is going to wear later in ball. Quite a headache problem.

She manage to rule Antoweif well, but not choosing the garment for herself. Her loyal knight does the others for her, a truly knight and butler. Aryl follows her, leaving Tsuki at there waiting them again.

"My Lady, this should suits you well."

"Ah, a perfect choice."

Aryl's hand holding a long black dress, the cutting is make according to Aurelia's size. No over showing fanciful stuff, just a elegant black dress with silver ornament lays down beautifully along the side. The dress advances her disposition and body figure well, now all people can't get off their eyes on her Lady.

"Good choice, Knight Yyurl."

"hmm..don't you give me a compliment for me first before Yyurl's?"

"hahaha...Forgive me, My Lady. You're beautiful and no one shall ever let off their attention from you."

"Yes, My lady. We should make our move to the ball now, or else people will just concentrate on the others."

"Then we better get going now."

"Ball? Why can't you come, Xerxes? It'll be a wonderful chance to meet the competitors for the throne. Then you'd be able to know who you're up against."

Byakuya paused and said, "But if you really insist on me being your representative, I will do so. I will remember to keep an eye on Lunette."

Byakuya laughed how both Lunette and Xerxes hates balls. They aren't too bad, are they?

"Though... I'm more worried about you. Just a while ago, you coughed up blood. Are you... going to be all right by yourself?"
