Chloe Garnetsch, who gave everything for the man she loved, but eventually died miserably.
Foolish Chloe realized too late.
She was a bait for a man to throw at the emperor, and a man was a beautiful son of a bitch disguised as tenderness.
“I like you uncle.”
Seventeen I was just as young and immature as I could not hide my growing heart.
“I’ve been in love, for a long time.”
My body shuddered at the sight of me looking over my body with my chin on my back, but I plucked up the courage and took a step closer to him.
“Love. You’re already that old.”
His fingertips swept down my face.
Despite the unexpected confession, he was overly relaxed and adept.
“I like you too, Chloe. I’m in love.
How can I not be pleased with you, who will bring me your brother’s neck in the future.””
The man I was in love with was so sweet that he was even crueler.
