Disclaimer: I do NOT own Kyou Kara Maou. If I did, it would be censored 18+ and a whole episode would be dedicated to Conrad f*cking Yozak into the matress. And Yuuri would finally marry Wolfram. And so on. Seeing that none of this is happening, I guess Kyou Kara Maou doesn’t belong to me. Sadly. But I’m making plans on seducing the owners and inherit the rights.
The Qualities of Lordship
Conrad Weller was a patient man. In fact he considered himself a man with nerves of steel. He could face battles at which he is supposed to die and survive them. He can overcome the death of the person which was the most important in his life. He could wait years, decades for a new king to come. He could cope with the knowledge that his mother chose to be king instead of mother. He was even willing to elope with the person he loved deeply only to make him happy (not that he himself didn’t want to). He could play a game of royal pair travelling across the world and meeting people. However his patience and endurance did have limits. That limit proved to be waiting half an hour for his ‚wife‘ (which was in fact a man) to come out of their room, dressed o meet an acquainted lord. That was too much of the quirks of his wife. His very manly wife. He took a deep breath and asked for the upteenth time sweetly: „Is Mylady ready yet? If we stay any longer we’ll be running late.“ No answer. And suddenly Conrad Weller understood his older brother so much...
He heard footsteps next to him and as he turned he saw his servant Sebastian. He gave him a tired smile. „Sebastian.“
„Mylord, please excuse me for being invasive, but if we don’t head out soon-“
„We’ll be late,“ lord Weller finished for him. „I know.“ He looked at the closed door and knocked again, this time more demanding. „Mylady, please come out! This is very insulting towards lord Kelly! If you won’t emerge this instand I“ that very moment the door opened.
„Mylord shouldn’t be so impatient. If Your Lordship didn’t take so much time in the bathroom I could have been ready 15 minutes ago. However, I’m ready now.“
But the Lord stopped lost track of the words at ‚Mylord‘. Lady Weller had her red dress, white boots, black gloves and fox fur, and dressed the same as she was yesterday and the day before so he didn’t know how she managed to look so stunning, so other, so utterly irresistible. He let his gaze wander up and down, not caring that he was staring like some hungry lion on a gazelle. The Lady however didn’t seem to mind much as she spread he fan, hiding her blush and waving for air. „It’s rude to stare Mylord.“
He caught himself at once. „Please forgive me Mylady. You just look so stunning that I couldn’t resist.“
She waved for more air. „Would Mylord be so kind and help me put on my coat?“
„Of course.“ He jumped to oblige and not a minute later they sat in the cart, hurrying to Lord Kellys house. In the broad daylight they white streets looked even more beautifull than at night, glittering under the stars. Thanks to their fast horses they arrived shortly, without much delay. One could almost say fashionably late. They turned to Sebastian, telling him to pick them up around six and they entered the two-story house. Lord Kelly was already awaiting them.
„Please excuse us for being late. Lady Weller had put extra effort to her appearence in order to please you.“ The Lord said as he shook hands with the older man, who in turn looked at the Lady.
„The effort was met with a result. You look stunning Mylady.“ And he kissed her hand, which made her again spread her fan, waving air.
„Your words flatter me, Mylord.“
„Please come hither. Jacques, take Myladys coat.“ The servant whom he ordered did as told and soon the three of them sat at the table, eating their lunch in comfortable silence. Every now and then a compliment about the wine or the beef was made, but otherwise it was silent. After the lunch they moved to the living room of the house and the lord beckoned his guests to make themselves comfortable. „Can I offer to you something? Tea? Coffee? Perhaps a lite whiskey?“
„I believe tea will do.“ Lord Kelly nodded and motioned to the servant to oblige their wishes and sat down too.
Lady Weller looked around. „You have a beautifull household.“ Her eyes descended upon the head of a bull. „Did you shoot that?“
„Even if I hate to brag, yes I did. A few years ago in Suberera.“
„You’ve been there?“
„I’ve been to many places Mylady.“
„Lord Kelly is a veteran, dearest, he has many achievements.“ Said Lord Weller and turned to said man. „Isn’t that so, Mylord?“
„Why, yes, Lord Weller. I did many things in my life, ones I am proud of and ones that I regrett. But they’re all left behind. A man shouldn’t dwell on past things. I’m sure you agree with me.“ As he said that something heavy started to hang in the air between them, but not as heavy to start worrying about it, so lord Weller answered with a smile.
„Completely so, sire.“
Their tea arrived. As the servant left and Lord and Lady Weller took a sip of it, Lord Kelly spoke again. „May I ask you something openly, Lord Weller?“
„Please, don’t hold back.“
„That time you came back to Big Shimaron to serve under Lanzhil, you were to spy on us, weren’t you?“
Time froze. Conrad noticed how Yozak next to him tensed, ready to jump in the first moment of danger. Then Lord Kelly laughed. „Oh don’t worry, I’m not resenting you. It’s perfectly normal to investigate the situation in the enemy country.“ He put down his tea. „Besides, Lanzhil was destined to loose his throne one day. He wasn’t a good ruler and the people despised him. He got the throne through intrigues. I can’t deny that I wished for a revolution. And actually, there are many soldiers who felt the same way. But since I am loyal to my country, I’m loyal to my king. Don’t you agree, Lord Weller?“
Conrad smiled. „I’m loyal to my mothers country now, yes. And that won’t change.“
Lord Kelly nodded. „As expected from a man who would even throw away his honor to serve his king. Spying, lying, betraying, all in sake for the homeland and the king. I admire that, Lord Weller.“
„Isn’t the greatest honor to be loyal to your country?“ Conrad still wore his polite smile and nice tone of voice, but Yozak felt that je was ready to drop it the second he felt danger. However it didn’t seem like there was need to as Lord Kelly politely continued the conversation.
„Indeed it is. I didn’t mean to offend you Mylord. I know you’re a honorable man, for that you would throw away anything for your king. I really do admire that.“
„But aren’t you the same? You love your country, don’t you?“ Conrad shot back, still smiling. Yozak suspected that he said it to show that he wasn’t easy to get onto his knees, but it could also be meant to test how the Lord would react to the same thing he said to him.
„With all my heart. I was born and raised here. I have pleasent memories and nothing can erase them. This is my homeland, of course I love it.“
Conrad nodded, but Yozak stayed silent. He was too, born in Big Shimaron but he didn’t consider it home, neither had he pleasent memories. The silence didn’t last long as Lord Kelly spoke again. „So, what business brings you and your beautifull wife to Big Shimaron this time, Lord Weller? You mentioned honeymoon, is that true?“
The awkward atmosphere vanished and Conrad smiled. „Indeed, that is true. I and Lady Weller got married recently and we decided to take a travell around the world for a year.“
„Please accept my congratulations. Lady Weller is really a beauty.“ He inclined his head towards her.
This time the red tint gracing Yozaks cheeks was genuine and she spread her fan to hide it and in the same time to wave himself air. „Thank you Mylord, your words are flattering me.“
„It’s true, mylady, there’s no need to get flustered.“
Conrad laughed lightly and said in a jokingly matter, which albeit held a dangerous undertone of a lion marking his territory. „Carefull, Mylord, if you keep continuing this, I might get jealous.“
„Oh, don’t worry, I wouldn’t dare to! And so it seems that Lady Weller isn’t a woman who could be so easy to get. But can I ask Mylady, do you have a sister by any chance?“
The Lady chuckled lightly. „Sadly, no. But if I had, you would be my first recomendation for her.“
„Now you are flattering me Mylady.“
„Merely stating a fact, Mylord.“
„Not only beautifull but intelligent too. Lord Weller certainly knows how to pick.“
„An intelligent man for an intelligent woman, don’t you agree, Lord Kelly?“
„Absolutely Mylady. After all, the qualities of the husband need to be to the satisfactory of the wife. I’m sure you see that the same way.“
„Completely so, Mylord. However“ he recrossed his knees, making his skirt flutter „A wife should be also be able to support the husband in every factor of their life as a married pair. Harmony, cooperation and understanding are very important in a relationship after all. Every little thing has its place. Everything has to fit somewhere, so to say.“ Yozak leaned forward to put down his tea and looked at the man from half-closed eyes. Lord Kelly choked. At this point Conrad didn’t know if he should laugh, cry, or get angry. Their little conversation would be insulting, if it wasn’t Yozak sitting next to him. Hearing him speak like that with Lord Kelly, while knowing that said Lord in fact didn’t have a chance, no matter how much Yozak implied he had, was very entertaining. One could say even amusing.
„Do you have a wife, Lord Kelly?“ Very amusing indeed, as he heard that husky voice which Yozak used when he wanted to tease him without the intention of actually provoking something.
„What a shame. I’m sure you’re a man full with qualities, being able to understand and harmonize with a woman.“ One slight wink, which could be easily overseen if you didn’t pay attention to it and his ‚wife‘ leaned back again, leaning slightly towards Conrad, putting a hand on his chest, right over his heart and looked at him lovingly. „Just like Lord Weller.“ It bordered a wonder that Conrad was able to supress that victorious smile which was trying to fight its way onto his face.
„I’m sure about it, Mylady.“ And finally ending the little game of cat and mouse, Lord Kelly turned again to Conrad. „So, if I may ask, what is your next destination?“
Conrad put down his tea. „Actually we don’t know yet. I suppose we’ll stay here for a few days and then head further to whatever crosses our path. But if you have any recomendations, we’ll accept them gladly.“
„Actually Mylord, at this time of the year spending time in the mountains is a real joy. You could rent a cottage for a week and stay there. It isn’t that mercilessly cold yet and the snowstorms will take at least two months to arrive so the trip is very enjoyable. If I had time, I would gladly go.“
The pair exchanged looks and then Lady Weller turned to the other lord. „Thank you Mylord for this fabulous idea. We’ll consider it in our planning.“
„As long as we’ll do some planning.“ Lord Weller said with a smile and everybody in the room laughed.
The time flied away quickly at the tea and pleasent conversation and they didn’t even notice it was six o’clock untill a servant came and announced tat the Lordships‘ cart has arrived. And so with a few promises to meet again and other pleasentries exchanged, Lord and Lady Weller left the Kelly household. For a while there was silence between them untill Conrad spoke with a sly smile. „So, did you enjoy flirting with Lord Kelly?“
„Oh, yes, very. He is indeed a very interesting man.“ Yozak smirked and Conrad surpressed a little chuckle.
„I suggest then that you approach this with utmost caution, or else I might cross swords with him in order to protect your vortue and show him what’s mine.“
„No, how awfull! I made Mylord jealous, how utterly thoughtless of me!“ Yozak put his hands on his cheeks feigning shock. „If I can do anything to redeem myself, please tell me.“
„I’m sure we can think of something.“ He traced down Yozaks arm, who smiled his knowing sideway smile. „Marking your territory, my wild lion?“ The utterly suggestive tone in his voice made actually Conrad shudder with sudden lust.
Suddenly, out of the blue, Yozak changed the subject. „A cottage, hm? What do you think about it?“
Conrad removed his hand „I’m considering.“
„Do you think it’s a plan to catch you?“
„There is that possibility, but the more I think about it, I find it more unlikely. First of all, we asked him.“
„He brought it up.“ Yozak countered. It was their way of thinking and analyzing their current situations together. Consider everything and expelling the unlikely possibilities.
„Secondly, he’s a man of honor.“
„He implied that you are not.“
„Implied. Then he directly said otherwise. And most importantly, what reason would he have?“
„A few come into my mind, but none of them is likely to be true. This country still doesn’t have a king so nobody would get anything from catching you or your execution. It would be a waste of time and effort.“
„Exactly. Besides, he can’t know if we accept his offer or not. For all he knows, we could also disappear immediately.“
Yozak nodded. „And it isn’t like we are defenseless. I say we give it a shot.“
„I agree with you.“
Lady Weller smiled. „So a cottage is it then. I’m already looking forward to it.“ And she put her hand on her husbans tigh, watching him through heavy eyelids in a silent offer. Or a promise?
Lord Weller smirked slightly. „Me too.“
Wee, this was fun to write!
Next chapter will be all about those two and the cottage. A whole week alone together in the mountains, all in one chapter. Sounds good, no? *evil laugh*
