Chapter 54: I will visit you here again

The next day, at the royal castle.

Ioel, the secretary, came to Thanasios’ office out of breath.

“Your Highness! Something terrible has happened!”

The usually calm secretary had a desperate look on his face. Thanasios saw the situation through the gap in the wall of piled-up documents, but he was already tired of being bothered by another issue at this point.

“What is it? You know I’m busy right now.”

“It’s urgent, please come quickly. Helios-sama is out and about.”

Thanasios retracted his previous statement and stood up vigorously, then rushed out of the office.

It was rare for Helios, Thanasios’ brother, to even walk in the corridors of the royal castle. His greenhouse garden was connected to his room, and the corridors of the castle, which were filled with light, were a harsh environment for him. When Thanasios saw him before, he was wearing a special umbrella, veil, and a robe that covered his entire body.

However, when they arrived at the place where Ioel led him to Helios, he was standing calmly in the middle of the bright corridor, wearing a veil but without any special clothing. For him, even bathing in the sunlight, which was like poison, was nothing.

Helios’ silver hair shone so brightly that it almost overflowed, giving off a divine radiance. Indeed, the bureaucrats and maids around him were captivated by Helios’ beauty. It was no wonder, as he was an existence that they rarely saw, and it was as if he had stepped out of a meticulously painted mythological scene, shining with light.

Thanasios couldn’t believe his eyes. But no matter how many times he looked, it was his brother Helios standing there.

“E-Elder brother?”

Helios beckoned Thanasios over.

“You’re late, Thanasios. But it’s just in time. Come.”

“What are you doing? No, more importantly, how are you feeling?”

“Don’t worry about me. I thought you should be present for this too.”

With that, Helios began to walk. Thanasios was so surprised that he couldn’t even ask where they were going, and his eyes were fixed on Helios’ every move.

It was the first time that the brothers had walked side by side in the corridors of the royal castle. Helios followed the lead of the maid and walked straight towards their destination.

And they arrived at the bedroom of the Styx Kingdom’s king. The king, who was bedridden, hardly ever left his bedroom. He was in a state of alternating between consciousness and unconsciousness, and his condition did not improve or worsen.

But today was different.

Helios entered the king’s bedroom, followed by Thanasios.

Then, the doctors, nurses, and maids who were inside all looked at Helios at once. But their gaze quickly returned to the person lying on the central bed.

An elderly man with a mix of white and navy hair had a pale complexion, but his eyes were open. The king was awake, and Thanasios was once again surprised by this fact.

As if on cue, Helios spoke to the king.

“Your Majesty, if you are awake, there is something I would like to ask for your approval on.”

Helios spoke clearly and distinctly. Thanasios, like the others, was surprised to hear such a convincing voice that resonated in his stomach.

“I, Helios Perennus, will step down from the position of the first prince. Furthermore, I suggest that the throne be abdicated to Athanasios while you, Your Majesty, are still alive.”

As soon as Helios finished speaking, the room fell silent.

People were bewildered and unable to speak, trying to understand the meaning of his words. Thanasios was left speechless because he understood the implications of Helios’ words.

Helios had announced that he was giving up his position as the prince of the Styx Kingdom. Not only that, but he was also pressuring the king to pass the throne to Thanasios.

It was an unimaginable situation, and no one knew how to react. At that moment, the king nodded firmly and said, “Very well. I cannot bear the burden of my duties any longer. I leave the rest to you.”

With those words, the king closed his eyes. Everyone present heard his words and became witnesses, as if supporting Helios’ actions.

Helios turned around and smirked at Thanasios.

“That’s how it is. Congratulations, Thanasios.”

Despite his words, Thanasios couldn’t understand or accept anything. Things were moving too quickly, and Helios had casually handed him the heavy responsibility and position of the king.

Even Thanasios, known for his intelligence, couldn’t keep up with the situation. He didn’t know what to ask or what to do, feeling lost and confused.

“Wait! What do you mean by stepping down?!”

“Well, as I said earlier, according to the doctor, it was a misdiagnosis. Well, there may be a difference in lifespan compared to an ordinary person.”

“Uh…?”

“Anyway, I don’t have to deal with you anymore. Just do your best.”

With that, Helios left the king’s bedroom. He left Thanasios standing there and the people in shock, and returned to his own dwelling, the greenhouse garden.

In front of the entrance to the greenhouse garden, a small girl was standing. She had long golden hair, big blue eyes, and a smile on her face. The tunic that covered her whole body was her favorite.

Helios smiled. He had to reward her for waiting so faithfully. He was in a good mood.

“Eleni.”

Standing in front of his sister-in-law Eleni, Helios calmly told her something he shouldn’t have said in his position.

“I don’t believe in gods or anything like that.”

Eleni agreed with Helios’ words.

“Well, I think that’s fine. It’s all just fate’s mischief or coincidence.”

“I see.”

Helios is a smart young man, not as much as Thanasios, but he understands some things.

“You did something,” but unless he says it, there’s no point in poking around in the bushes.

Without any agreement between them, Helios and Eleni just accept the reality that it’s okay like that.

“I’ll come back to the greenhouse garden again.”

“You’ll come back anyway, even if I tell you not to. You’re an idiot.”

With a snort, Helios returns to the greenhouse garden.

Eleni watches his back and smiles contentedly.
