“Gong .  You see, my adjutant and I made a bet . ”

‘Here we go again . ’ Hugo thought . Once in a while, Kwiz went on about nonsense .

“It was a bet as to whether or not Gong carries a handkerchief . ”

Hugo listened silently with an att.i.tude that was close to disregard but Kwiz was unyielding .

“Knights do not usually carry their handkerchiefs around . But, I mean, Gong is in a grey area . So, I picked that Gong does not carry it around while my adjutant picked that Gong does carry it around . ”

“What is being bet?”

“If I lose, I will no longer use a phrase that I often use . ”

Kwiz had a nasty tongue . It was a fact that all his close aides knew . Because Kwiz was ascending the throne and becoming the master of the country, the adjutant wanted him to fix his manner of speaking so that he would not lose face . Until now, no matter what his adjutant said, Kwiz ignored it but as the frequency of the nagging increased, it became quite annoying . Then, a good idea came to Kwiz’s mind .

[Make a bet with me then . We’ll bet one word at a time . ]

Rule 1: The content of the bet will be done according to what comes to mind at that particular moment . Kwiz and the adjutant could take turns in suggesting the bet’s content .

Rule 2: If the adjutant won, Kwiz could not use the inappropriate expression that was being bet afterwards .

Rule 3: In the event of Rule 2 violation, the bet would be deemed as a loss .

Rule 4: If Kwiz won, he could recover an expression that he had been banned from using .

After making a very useless and specific set of rules, Kwiz began the betting game . It was an endless path of repet.i.tions but with the thought that at least something is being done, the adjutant accepted it .

They had made a bet once thus far, and Kwiz had lost . As a result, Kwiz was blocked from using the expression, ‘f.u.c.k’ .

The Duke of Taran’s handkerchief was the second bet . For this bet, the expression ‘dead old man’ that Kwiz used to refer to the late King was chosen . If Kwiz lost his time, he would have to solemnly refer to the dead old man as the ‘late king’ .

“So Gong .  Tell me . Do you carry a handkerchief around?” (Kwiz)

Hugo alternated glances between Kwiz who had a twinkling gaze like he was facing a problem of a lifetime, and the adjutant whose expression was full of pleas . Was such a relaxed atmosphere really okay? Hugo was feeling doubtful . For a very short moment, he wondered if he had made a good choice to hold hands with the king .

“I do . ” (Hugo)

Kwiz was shocked and the aide silently cheered . With one word, Hugo had dropped one in heaven and the other in h.e.l.l but his expression looked indifferent .

“No way! There’s no way Gong carries that kind of thing!” (Kwiz)

If the bet had been a little while back, the winner of the bet would have been Kwiz . Hugo did not use to carry a handkerchief . If the need for one ever came up, he could order someone to clean it up after all . However, it had been quite a while since Hugo began to carry a handkerchief .

“I will not lie for such things . ” (Hugo)

“How can this be . ”

Kwiz lamented in regret . His scheme of recovering the lost expression ‘f.u.c.k’ by winning this bet was fruitless, rather now, he had to refer to that d.a.m.ned old man as the ‘late king’ .

“Alright then, show me . Right now . ” (Kwiz)

Hugo furrowed his brows slightly but eventually, he gave a small sigh, and withdrew his handkerchief from his bosom then he placed it onto the table .

Kwiz’s eyes widened when he saw the snow-white handkerchief and he picked it up . Its rough texture was cotton and it had a flower embroidered at the corner . n.o.blemen usually carried dark silk handkerchiefs .

“…Gong . Your taste is quite unique?”

Cotton handkerchiefs were normally used by children . But Hugo did not shrink in the slightest . On the contrary, he look dignified .

“A handkerchief is for wiping dirt . There is nothing as good at performing its intended function like a cotton handkerchief . ”

‘Is he teaching me the function of a handkerchief?’ Kwiz wondered as he mulled over Hugo’s words and intentions . Kwiz figured out the subtle meaning behind the cotton handkerchief and he looked at the handkerchief with new eyes . Moreover, since the Duke appeared so dignified, the handkerchief did not seem that bad the more one looked at it .

The handkerchief was nice to the touch, its white color was spotless and the flower at the corner had its own charm . The embroidered flowers was not sewn elaborately so Kwiz had a hunch . From what he could tell, it didn’t seem like the work of an expert but an embroidery of the d.u.c.h.ess . The thought that it was made by his younger sister whose face he hadn’t seen yet made him want to have it .

“Hmm . After listening to Gong, it does seem that way . Then, give me this . ”

“…Pardon?”

Hugo could not s.n.a.t.c.h it away from the King who had put it in his pocket . Was it not just a handkerchief at most? Of course to Hugo, it was not just a handkerchief . He didn’t carry it around to use but as a kind of charm .

One day, she had cut out pieces of white cotton and began to make handkerchiefs personally . She would either make time or use her spare time to embroider the corner . Like that, when she made a bunch, she would sent it to Damian every few months . A white cotton handkerchief with a flower embroidered at the corner . Anyone could tell it was an item for a child . But Hugo wanted to have it .

Because it was embarra.s.sing to suddenly say that he wanted to have a cotton handkerchief with an embroidered flower, he had helped himself to some . It would have been better if he had declared it confidently . But because he had done that in an impulse of a moment, he couldn’t say anything even more . The few handkerchiefs Hugo took were stored deep in his office drawer .

After some time, she changed the embroidery to Damian’s name, stating that flowers were not suitable for boys anyways . No matter how much Hugo liked her handmade articles, he did not want to carry around a handkerchief that held the boy’s name .

The handkerchiefs with flower embroidery were limited first edition items that could not be obtained presently . Only a few existed but one was just s.n.a.t.c.hed away .

Hugo’s mood instantly darkened . Today of all days, he certainly did not want to see the king’s shameless face .
