“Did you get caught?”

Ami welcomed Noah who had left for work.

“I came on my foot.”

Noah frowned and replied bluntly.
However, Ami didn’t seem to listen and snorted.

“You forgot to resign, so you came to work.”


Did her stupid mistake spread? Noah’s blue eyes fluttered in despair.

“Fortunately, there were no rumors.”

Preoccupied with Leto’s proposal and Noah’s escape, the people present at the time did not fully know about the other circumstances.

“The lieutenant general brought you here for you to return your resignation.”

“Doing something useless…”


After cutting off Noah’s grumbling words, Ami had a rather serious expression on her face.

“I didn’t know I was going to say something like this, but you should thank the lieutenant general this time.”

Noah’s escape yesterday would normally not be dismissed as a mere commotion.
This was a desertion in which a soldier left her place of work without permission.

“Of course, the origin of the case is the lieutenant general.”

But desertion was a very serious crime in the military.

Leto made it as if Noah, who had fled before the situation was revealed, was within the battalion.

And under the pretext of working outside, he went to the house where Noah lived and checked her whereabouts.

“Why have you been quiet these days?”

The two have been close friends since they were in the military academy.

So Ami knew her better than anyone.

The only downside of Noah, who was careful in everything and tried to be rational until the very end, is that ‘bright’ temperament.

She was also the reason why she was called another mad dog after Lieutenant General Oceanus.


Noah was speechless and just stubbornly kept her mouth shut and changed her military uniform.

She wore a dark navy blue jacket, two golden buttons, and loose-fitting trousers.
Noah’s change was over only after she put her last flowing blonde hair up and tied it up neatly.

“I know…”

Noah said, closing her cabinet with a slight pressure.
The sound of closing was louder than expected.

“Who told him to say that in front of the crew?”

“I’m saying this because we are friends…”

Ami lowered her voice and whispered.

“You were too sensitive this time.”

“Hey, to get married is not a kid’s joke…!”

“But the lieutenant general didn’t seem to take it seriously.”

The two of them came out of the hallway and headed for the meeting room where the morning meeting was held.
The crew members encountered as they passed by saluted.

It was a greeting as usual, but Noah felt particularly awkward.
It was still too much for her to think about what Leto had done to blame him for the mood.

“To be honest…”

Ami said while looking into the eyes of such a friend.

“Of course, I’m saying this because you and the lieutenant general shared that kind of atmosphere for a while…”

“We never did.”

“Don’t you remember when I caught you?”

The two of them secretly hid in the furnishings room and almost kissed, and Ami, who went to pick up the missing paper, witnessed it.

“It was just a brief fever.”

Noah, who stopped walking, looked at Ami and said firmly.
Read only at pm tl.

“We were never in a relationship, and I never intended to marry that person, no, it was all that crazy dog’s fault in the first place.”

“You say you really hate it but hold on to it foolishly.”

“You’re annoying.”

Noah nailed it.

“That’s why…!”

Ami sighed deeply as she glanced at her friend’s trembling fists.


In the first place, all of this was due to an event that Leto had committed a month ago.

‘Why the lieutenant…’

Why did he interfere with Noah’s promotion?


If Noah was a talented person, Leto was a genius.

Immediately after graduating from the Naval Academy, he participated in the counter-offensive against Adlabor, and in just a week invaded the imperial capital and broke the flag of the Imperial Palace.

It was a truly extraordinary event that he broke through the capital of the empire, besieged the royal family, and tore the flag.

Even in the victorious kingdom, they were more surprised than admired by his performance.

Leto was promoted to the director general for his contribution to this.
It was an unprecedented promotion since the establishment of the Kingdom Army.

At first, there were many voices that felt uncomfortable with this special privilege.
Most of them insisted that the special promotion was hasty due to Leto’s young age.

However, in the end, this was proof that the only pod they could catch from Leto was age.

After Leto took office, the heyday of the Navy had just begun.

As time passed, he was promoted to lieutenant general, and the ‘special ship unit’ he founded with Captain Adbello came to be called the kingdom’s strongest force.

“…In this regard, we have requested the unit to test the new weapon in the tower.”

“How many cars are there in total?”

“One more vehicle than previously reported.”

“Then six in total.
The trial personnel will be selected as before…”

During the morning meeting.


Noah frowned.

‘It’s crazy’

Apparently, the captured miscellaneous thoughts are Leto’s splendid victories.

“You say you really hate it but hold on to it foolishly.”

It was because she heard something stupid a while ago.

Ami, who was concentrating on the meeting, trembled at the gaze.

Noah quickly removed her gaze and let out a silent sigh.

‘If she’s right…’

Despite the uproar yesterday, the meeting was peaceful.

It was no different for the troops to greet Noah as usual, and after Leto also appeared in the meeting room, he pretended not to know anything.

‘…Did I overdo it?’

She thought so.

She didn’t have to react sensitively and run away.
If he had just ignored her, everyone would have said, ‘crazy dog ​​did something crazy’.

Only the pen that was in her hand was splendidly turned around in the shame that came after her belatedly.

The crew member sitting next to Noah looked at the feat with admiration.

So the meeting was about to end.

“Lieutenant General.”

First lieutenant, who had left the conference room for a while, delivered urgent information.

“This is a telegram that came in a hurry this morning, but…”

The corners of Leto’s lips, who had been silently listening, rose slowly.
Oh, this is bad, Noah quickly intuited.

“…My friends.”

Just as expected.

“They are coming.”

The conference room was noisy.

“The Royal Knights, you mean?”

The platinum-haired man sitting closest to Leto frowned as if displeased.

He was Lieutenant Colonel Ice, a rank just below Leto in the unit.

There were a total of three military organizations in the kingdom.

The army protects the land centered on the north, and the navy protects the sea centered on the south.
Finally, the Royal Knights who protect the royal family.

The three groups had strong personalities as much as the areas they protected were different.

However, in order to protect the country, they developed friendships through exchanges.

‘…Would you really like to be friends with that?’

Noah groaned inwardly.

Because the ultimate goal of the exchange was one.

Who will be stronger?

The filthy exchanges stained with envy and jealousy towards each other were leading to a streak of recent naval victories.

Fortunately, they do come together because of the same ‘military’ as the army, but the relationship with the Royal Knights was difficult.

“Sir Delat is coming with his family for an exchange.
It is said that his direct subordinates are accompanying him.”

“Lord Delat…”

Leto leaned against the back of his chair and smiled.

“Are things really getting fun?”

But none of the people really believed it.


‘I’d rather get rid of pirates.’

‘Hey, I’m going to write a will…!’

‘Is this hell…?’

Everyone held their breath and looked at Leto.

Whenever that crazy dog ​​raised the corners of his mouth with a cold gaze, something bad happened.

In addition, the sensitivity was especially increased today.



The crew’s eyes naturally turned to Noah.

‘So what.’

Confused, Noah opened her eyes and glowered.

However, since the mad lieutenant was far more terrifying than the mad captain, the crew’s wretched eyes gleamed even more.

‘Those damn things! To sacrifice me!’

She trembled at the cunning maneuvers of the crew.

But Noah knew well why they were doing this.

Not to mention, Lieutenant Colonel Ice behind Leto was looking over at her, trembling like a baby otter.


Finally with a short sigh.

“Lieutenant General.”

Noah called Leto in a pleasant voice.

She didn’t call him to do anything about the atmosphere of the conference room.

Anyways, she had a story to share with that person seriously.

It was just that.

“Lord Delat’s visit will be discussed later.”

With those words, Leto ended the meeting.

The crew members who were present left the place as if running away.
Noah stared resentfully at the back of those running away.

‘Did I go easy on them too much these days?’

It looked like she needed to get a hold of discipline on them again.


Of course, that thought completely disappeared at the voice calling her.

“Lieutenant General.”

Noah could not hide her disapproving gaze.

“Ah, I feel thrilled when you look at me with those eyes.”

Leto smiled softly.

“…Every time the Lieutenant General says that, I get goosebumps.”

When Noah voiced she hated it, Leto laughed out loud.
She was at a loss for words to see how happy he was.

“I’m going to ask you straight up.”

She groaned in frustration, and asked what she wanted to ask the most.

The reason why the relationship between them had completely changed.

“Why did you interfere with my promotion?”

“I thought I said that on the way to work”

Leto slowly avoided her gaze.

“I have my own circumstances.”

“Isn’t that the lieutenant’s personal judgment?”


This time, there was no response.
Leto expressed his feelings of shame for the first time.

Noah became even more angry about it.

“Then what the hell…!”

“Then you?”

Leto intervened quickly.

“Why did you risk your life for a promotion like that?”

“Don’t change your mind.
Now it’s the lieutenant general’s fault…!”

“Because of the sword?”

Noah’s eyes trembled as she was stabbed in the corner.

“Yesterday, the way you looked at the sword was unusual.”

Leto sighed lightly and expressed his sadness.

“Did you approach me to get promoted?” (tl/n: bruh stop beating around the bush already)
