Jewel in the Mist (BL)

Chapter 1: Existence

y. From his circumstances alone, it doesn take a genius to figure out he had transmigrated.

But why and how? His question had not yet been answered.

If Evelyn was his younger sister and he was the second young master of the Valenti household, then the body he was in could only be ”Jule Valenti ”.

Jule Valenti, the second young master of the Valenti duchy, the one responsible for many of the protagonist Borealis many misfortunes. The cold and salty minor villain of COAIS.

Valenti, yes, I am Jule Valenti, He almost said out loud but stopped himself before anything could go wrong.

The story of COAIS followed Borealis Caskut, a hero unknowingly chosen by the deities from the Divine realm to revive his kingdom, Qelia after its downfall by the Tonucan Empire.

Borealis was the child of a defected aristocrat and a commoner man. His father was a low-wage, poor worker at the port, while his mother was of the high aristocracy. Touched by his honesty and chained by her family, the aristocrat eloped with the peasant. Not long after, though, they were caught and his father was executed, his mother taking her own life. Borealis was soon taken in by Count Edmond, a noble who proclaimed himself a distant relative who resided in the northern territories.

Once he turned 15, Borealis was invited into a knight tournament of the Valenti duchy, which operated one of the strongest knight forces in Qelia. Nevertheless, because he caught the attention and admiration of the young lady Evelyn Valenti, her older brother, the second young master Jule Valenti sabotaged Borealis invitation by swapping it with a failed applicant. As Borealis had already left the County to pursue the knight order, he could not return and thus became a wanderer.

Three years later, the war between Qelia and the Tonucan empire broke out, forcing him to flee entirely. Soon after, Qelia was conquered and Borealis could only disguise himself, changing his designated destination every few days to avoid slavery. However, halfway through the road leading to Tonucans capital, Borealis came across a slave owner abusing his slaves and, amid anger, killed the man and freed them. Thus, a bounty was put on Borealis head, rousing the suspicions of everyone in Tonucan, and making his journey harder than it was before. The latest chapter recounted the execution of Jule Valenti and the encounter between Borealis and the main antagonist, Michael Aldos – the newly ascended Emperor of Tonucan who used his control over a new re-discovered dark energy called Nether to cause the downfall of Qelia.

After Qelia was conquered, Jule Valenti was one of the few nobles who escaped the kingdom unscathed while his older brother died and his younger sister married off to a subordinate of the antagonist. He then ran into Borealis and joined the wanderer with the ill purpose of turning Borealis into the bounty under the guise of them both being from Qelia. After Jule Valenti successfully betrayed Borealis in exchange for his sisters return. Nevertheless, Jule Valenti was tricked and executed after making the request as the Tonucans never thought of letting a Qelia noble live.

But, if he was in Jule Valentis body…then where was the original Jule Valenti?

Jules entire body ached as he tried to fully stand up and pull away from the warmth of the blankets. His arms and legs were a sickly pale tone, his feet wobbly as he attempted to walk towards the door.

”Brother! You just woke up! ” Evelyn rushed over to support him with her small hands. ”Be careful, ”

”Young master, the chamberlain and I have completed the arrangement, ” The maid entered with a strange man. From an angle, his face was sharp and cold, particularly handsome. In many light novels, the chamberlain or butler would be described as an old, middle-aged man with white hair and a beard. However, the person standing in front of him had the appearance of a college graduate – young, tall, and tired.

The chamberlain bowed slightly. ”Would you like to move now, young master? You won be staying for long. Im sure the servants will clean the quickest they can, ”

Jule nodded, picking Evelyn up before following the chamberlain across the gray marble hallways. On the way to his new room, people froze the moment they noticed his presence. But the awkwardness lasted for only a second before yelps and cheers broke the silence.


”Young master! How are you feeling? ”


The head maid shook her head and sighed. ”Apologies, young master, they must have forgotten how much you dislike loud noises, ”

”No, its alright, ” Jule managed to smile despite how overwhelmed he felt.

”Brother, I wonder if your chamber will be far from mine? ” Evelyn pouted. ”Evelyn doesn want to walk for too long… ”

”Evelyn, Im sure well be fine, ” Jule comforted himself mostly. The heavy, warm weight in his arms was an indicator that Evelyn existed. A plot-filler character that only existed in words was in front of his eyes. A place from the past, a place that had been gone.

It felt like a trance, really, because moments ago, Jules heart had skipped a beat as the doors of the train opened behind him, his body falling hard on the rocky, broken railway track.

Moments after, he was somewhere entirely different; a world that could only be accessed in dreams. Except this wasn a dream and the people around him were alive and very real, as of current.

A small punch against his chest followed by a small tap on his shoulder woke his mind up.

”Young master, weve arrived, ” The chamberlain spoke. He thrust open the door to reveal a wide, spacious room with minimum decoration.

Evelyn frowned. ”Why is it so empty? ”

”We did not have enough time to make preparations, but we could if the young master prefers, ” The chamberlain said, his voice devoid of any emotion. His face held a look of contempt as if serving them was a nuisance.

”Im alright, Evelyn, ” Jule chided Evelyn. ”Ill probably rest now, you should go play, ”

”But I thought the physician said you
e fine now… ”

”There, there, young lady, ” The head maid smiled. ”The young master had just woken up, its normal to feel drowsy. Young master, if I may, ”

Soon after she left, a group of servants came in. A few of them scurried to relit the fireplace, while a couple of others began to prepare his bath. The servants did their work efficiently and left the room quickly after all preparations were completed, leaving Jule alone with the stoic chamberlain.

They stood in awkward silence for a long while. Many times, Jule had tried to head towards the bed, only to stop in his tracks when he noticed how the chamberlains gaze followed his every movement.

At last, he couldn bear the stillness any longer. ”You…whats your name, ”

”Young master? ” The chamberlains eyes widened slightly.

Jule pretended to scoff. ”I said what I said. What should I call you? ”

”Young master can call me anything he wants. As for my name… ” The chamberlain inhaled deeply, his head turned away as if ashamed. ”I have forgotten, but the duke often calls me by my last name, Kastel, ”

”I-I see, ” Jule blinked. ”Well then, Kastel, when can I meet the Duke? ”

”Anytime, young master, Im sure the Duke would enjoy your company, ”

”Anytime? ” Jule blurted out. Anytime he wanted? Wasn the Duke supposed to be super busy, with no time to spare? Moreover, wasn it mentioned multiple times in the novel how he had a strained relationship with both of his half-siblings?

”Of course. ” Kastel affirmed.

”…I was surprised that Duke Valenti would even care to give you this room, let alone order for it to be comfortably arranged, ”

Jule did not know whether to feel offended or weirdly amused by the chamberlains words. ”Excuse me? ”

”Apologies, that was a bit blunt of me, ” Kastel bowed again, ”What I meant was, the Duke cares for you dearly. ”

”I…see, ”

Kastel moved a little closer, practically towering over Jules current body.

”Young master, are you alright? You look a bit pale, ” He moved his hand upwards, placing it on Jules forward. Jule immediately tensed, his body frozen, unsure whether to move away.

”…Im alright, ”

”Ill excuse myself then. Rest well, young master. ”

And with that, Jule was all alone again.
