Sound of swords clashing and scream of soldiers were piercing the walls of the Imperial Palace. Imperial army wasn able to keep out the swarming force of rebels. Noble faction was charging directly towards the main palace.

The leader of the rebel force Duke Theodore Wallace looked cold and scary holding a sword painted with red blood. He looked like the reincarnation of devil in the eyes of those imperial guards.

When they reached the main hall of the Main Palace except some soldiers and some royal guards, no one was in sight.

The general who was in charge of leading soldiers to the Western Palace fastened his steps while approaching the duke and reported, ” Your Excellency!! No one was in the Western Palace. We were not able to find anyone. They must have fled already using the secret passage even before we entered the royal grounds. ”

The duke thought for a while and ordered, ”Dispatch a team to track down the royals. If found don expose yourself. Stay hidden! Don take any action until the next order is given. ”

The general thought that it was better to clear all the remaining royals. But after hearing the dukes order she could only answer, ”I will do as you say. Your Excellency ”. She then left the main hall of the main palace.

The noble faction looked puzzled, one of the member of the Noble faction Count Alfred Ford took a step forward and asked, ” Your Excellency, isn it better to remove further problems soon and coronation for new monarch also needs to be done. ”

The duke was in deep trance and suddenly to everyones surprise he asked, ”What about the Eastern Palace? ”

Count Alfred answered, ” Your Excellency, seems like the Eastern Palace hasn been abandoned but from your order we haven yet confronted the people there. ”

”Help all the soldiers get treatment. Get the imperial army surrender their power for now. Order them to be present in the court tomorrow morning. Further discussion will be done tomorrow. ”

After the order was given, the noble faction dismissed themselves.

Not long after, the duke headed towards the eastern palace with ten soldiers behind him.

Eastern palace

As soon as the rebel force entered the imperial grounds all servants and guards panicked. A man, neatly dressed was sitting in the study room looking outside the window. The night was in its peak. The full moon was shining brightly, overshadowing the brightness of all the remaining stars. His downturned eyes were lost in the brightness of the moon.

A servant came to him.

”YOUR HIGHNESS!! YOUR HIGHNESS !! The rebel force has already entered through the gates of the Imperial Palace. All the servants are fleeing. Even the main palace looks empty by now. ”

” …I understand ”

”Your highness! The rebel force is leaded by the duke along with the noble faction. They will never allow someone related to royal family survive. You…..You should flee. ”

”Where…..To where should I flee? ”

”Your highness ”
