I felt betrayed, but it wasn’t something that made me faint. Because a man with his level of ambition and avarice could not be content with a C-class guide.
He and Eleanor had been together for years without ever kissing.
Because she is a guide in the C-class.
Despite his whispered tender things, he didn’t take the relationship further since he believed she was out of step with him.
He can pull it off at any time.
Or, if necessary, he intended to use force to persuade Eleanor to side with the Duke of the East, Van Balzac Grandmeyer, his rival.
Eleanor is an adoptive daughter, but she is also the princess of a duchy, thus if she ever has a child, she will have no choice but to take responsibility.
The sole A-class guide in the Empire was what he set out to take from Van Balzac Grandmeyer by defeating him.
She was Charlotte Enrique.
She was an A-class guide and the fiancée of Carlisle Javés, Grand Duke of the West.
It was miserable for Eleanor, who had been Carlisle’s fiancée for a long time and had been guiding him. She experienced an unexpected spike of fury despite the fact she had already expected that would happen.
Eleanor wasn’t the only one incensed. The Duke of Armoure, who had adopted her and made her the fiancée of Grand Duke Javés, with the intention of making her empress, burst into a roar at her.
“What happened, Eleanor! Did you know?!”
She turned to face her foster father to respond, but all she got was a slap. He didn’t seem to understand how she had survived up until this point.
Eleanor collapsed on the ground with her mouth gaping. He tried to swing his palm again, but was stopped by the servants surrounding him.
Whatever the truth was, Eleanor was the Duke of Armoure’s eldest daughter on the surface. It was wrong for him to use violence on Eleanor.
“You must ascend to empress in order to crown our Elena as queen! How are you going to pull this off?”
Charlotte, who became Carlisle’s fiancee, was the daughter of Marquis.He had no justification for making the daughter of a duke, who did not even have the ability to guide him, as the emperor’s wife.
While publicly seeming like he was doing everything for Eleanor, the Duke of Armoure secretly prepared to raise her daughter as an empress to succeed the Imperial Family.
Eleanor sighed and placed her palm against the spot where he had slapped her.
“Javés… You evil bastard! You’ve entrusted me with such a dirty job……. What in the world did you tell me about dealing with the Themis family?”
When he mentioned the name Themis, Eleanor’s head tilted. Eleanor glanced at the duke, who appeared irritated, but he then said what she was scared of.
“What do you mean dealing with Themis? What have you done to my family?”
When Eleanor questioned him, the Duke of Armoure mocked her with his face contorted.
“This is what the emperor ordered! You must have a perfect status to be empress, so they ordered you to dig into your past!”
This was different from the original storyline.
This thought occurred to her at that time. The Hawk family, who sold the C-class guide to the Duke of Armoure and went on to become Baron Themis, was left unpunished in the original storyline.
Something has changed.
‘What? What the hell is he thinking?’
The confusion began to piece together memories of a world that was different from this one. Eleanor recalled her previous life and the contents of the original novel that told the story of this world.
And I collapsed.
In the shadowy corners, Eleanor contemplated the end of this novel. This novel had a sad ending.
‘I am the heroine……Eleanor Hawk, and the male lead is……’
Van Balzac Grandmeyer.
He was the Duke of East, who was captured in the dungeon of the imperial family after being set up by Carlisle, falling for a trap, and being falsely accused. Charlotte was originally his fiancee.
Eleanor went down to the underground prison where he was, freed him, and tried to escape the Empire with him.
Their matching rate was high, as if Eleanor and Van were destined for each other, but Eleanor was only a C-class guide. Thus, Van couldn’t unleash all his abilities.
They repeatedly run away, eventually dying in battle with Carlisle, and Eleanor commits suicide in front of Carlisle.
Eleanor again lost consciousness when she thought of those recollections.
- ͙*̩̩͙˚̩̥̩̥*̩̩̥͙ ✩ *̩̩̥͙˚̩̥̩̥*̩̩͙‧͙
When she regained consciousness, her surroundings were utterly dark. She could see the darkness outside even though she was in the pantry because there was a window.
Eleanor could guess what had happened to her as she raised her torso off the chilly floor.
The Duke of Armoure would have yelled, ‘get her out of my sight!’, and his servants would have thrown her into this nearby room.
As she stood up, Eleanor glanced toward the cabinet where the dishes were kept.
She had only one thing on her mind.
He probably expected this news to reach the Duke of Armoure. Nonetheless, she believed he was enjoying himself as Emperor without anxiety or remorse.
This was something he was expecting to happen. Although he had been crowned, Carlisle did not invite her to the Imperial Palace.
He did it because she was the adopted daughter of the duchy.
She was disguised as the daughter of a local aristocrat. Truthfully, there was no such person as Baron Themis. Carlisle probably told the Duke of Armoure that to buy time.
For just this reason, Eleanor’s family died.
Because they are commoners.
Eleanor opened the door and stepped out of the pantry. Only the faint cries of a woman could be heard inside the mansion.
Perhaps it was Elena, the duke’s biological daughter, crying. The duke and his wife were most likely standing next to her, comforting her.
Carlisle was not an easy man. Elena would not have had a child even if she had become Empress with Eleanor at the helm with him.
Eleanor climbed the stairs into her room. Her room had not yet been cleaned. When she was no longer useful, they would try to kick her out or sell her to another member of the royal family, but for the time being, she was still theirs.
She only brought what she needed. Instead of refusing to give herself, Carlisle tried to give Eleanor most of what she wanted.
Most of the imperial families who met the guide were like that. They discriminated according to their status but eventually tried to win the favor of the guide.
Only the guide could wash away the Imperial Family’s filth.
They claimed this was due to the imperial family’s status as a half-god. It is because of the accumulation of karma for using God’s power that human blood is dying.
The filth……The only person who could release the poison was the guide.
Guides are scarce in the empire; there are only two guides that are still alive.
Eleanor and Charlotte, Carlisle’s fiancées, were the only ones.
Therefore, most of the imperial family passed away before turning 20. Because of this, the Duke of Armoure adopted Eleanor and gave her family a noble title.
They didn’t know Charlotte was a guide at the time, so they thought Eleanor would become empress.
‘It’s all in the past.’
The Duke of Armoure did not exert any pressure on the Duke of Grandmeyer, who is either the emperor’s nephew or the Duke of the East. Carlisle Jarves, the Grand Duke of the West, was the one with whom he made agreements.
As soon as Eleanor became Princess Armoure, she became Carlisle’s fiancee. He was, of course, concealing that she was a guide.
If it was found out that she was a guide, the emperor would have made an attempt to kidnap Eleanor from Carlisle and set her up with his nephew, the Duke of Grandmeyer.
Eleanor went back and forth between the Duke of Armoure’s mansion and the Grand Duke’s mansion or stayed at the Grand Duke’s mansion for several days at the request of the Grand Duke.
For the better part of six years, she remained by his side and guided him.
He was handsome, and even though he knew Eleanor was from a commoner, he did not treat her in a cavalier manner. Eleanor, who was young and somewhat gullible at the time, fell in love with him.
Eleanor was not foolish either, but the feelings of love she had for him overwhelmed her reservations about him.
‘Love, what is the big deal!’
After those six years had passed, the story came to a close with the male character, Van, escaping and running away with her, and then she kills herself. That was the end of the story.
In the original story, Carlisle was shocked when he saw Eleanor’s dead body. He couldn’t be satisfied with just one guide because he was afraid he wouldn’t be able to get guidance.
Even if Eleanor betrayed him and fled, he planned to capture and keep her by his side.
Because Charlotte, who is supposed to give birth to his child, might die during labour. A replacement guide was necessary.
But he didn’t know that his feelings were a safe place until he held Eleanor’s body in his arms. He simply loved Eleanor.
Carlisle was wary of falling in love with Eleanor while guided by her. That was why, despite that he yearned for Eleanor, he refrained from giving her even a kiss.
I’m afraid that I, one of the members of the Imperial family, will fall to a guide.
The imperial family could imprint on the guide, but the guide could not imprint on the imperial family. This is because guides are not the blood of God.
A guide was simply proof that they could become a demigod’s companion.
Carlisle promises to let go of his love through Charlotte upon his return to the imperial palace.
He reasoned that because she is also a guide, if he built a profound relationship with her, his heart would be subject to her.
And…… The novel comes to an end there.
As was shown in the side story, Carlisle is still going through an awful situation, but Eleanor does not wish for him to continue to suffer.
‘To all of a sudden be content with being miserable and thinking about how I am? Ha!’
She despised this entire world. It’s a good thing she woke up and found that she was the main character in a novel. But how can she come to terms with such an ending?
Eleanor didn’t have the confidence to fall in love with the male lead. She had only seen him a few times.
Carlisle had always been anxious about Eleanor is about to be exposed to the Imperial Family. To the point where Carlisle had an escort knight posted even inside the Duke of Armoure’s mansion.
Even they disappeared after he became emperor.
‘I’ll destroy everything you wanted.’
Eleanor could determine what she wanted after recalling her previous life’s memories and the contents of her original story. What she wanted was the destruction of this empire.
The destruction of the world.
She determined to do it by herself.
