She looked down at her palm with a trembling expression.
Her snow-white palm, which had never suffered once, was swollen.
She had hit her favorite character, but why did her palm hurt… She sneered at her own palm, feeling disgusted.
‘How much did Kylo suffer…’
The day after the incident.
She attended the ball and made a mess of it.
Not satisfied with ruining the ball in a rage, she even went to the vicinity of the knight’s building and caused a scene.
If only she didn’t remember anything because she was drunk…
She remembered her own behavior very clearly.
It was Kylo who appeared to stop her then.
‘I’m so embarrassed…’
She felt very ashamed that she showed him such a sight.
But… The sight of her favorite character stopping a drunkard was really cool. It was a pity that the drunkard was her.
She felt her heart pounding as she recalled his handsome face.
He was her perfect taste.
She didn’t like the characters who were perfect in the conventional sense, but rather the ones who had some flaws.
Kylo was like that.
He was born out of an affair between his father, Jark, and a low-born maid, and he left home and grew up outside when he was young… He was the strongest in the world in terms of power.
He lived roughly as a mercenary, and his personality was very rough. He was a gangster, a thug.
That’s how Kylo joined the knights, and Jark brought him into the house to use him.
Kylo tried to satisfy his inferiority complex by working hard in the knights, but there was a limit to how much he was recognized.
Everyone knew his bastard status, and they ignored him subtly or openly.
That’s why Kylo , who was a bundle of inferiority complex, hated Raymond, the male protagonist.
He was jealous of him, who was perfect even in his status, and poured out all kinds of insults and curses on his way, and did not hesitate to do things that the male protagonist’s fans would hate.
Whenever Kylo acted up, the comments were like this.
[Oh, there he goes again, that bastard]
[Just kill him, please, author]
[Why does he keep acting up?]
[There’s a limit to how much I can tolerate a rival character]
[He’s really a demon]
‘He’s. So. Cute.’
For some reason, she saw it as a kitten’s pawing, or a cute bite.
She actually fell in love with Kylo from the moment he first appeared in the novel.
She still remembered that scene vividly.
It was when Kylo was still a mercenary.
The dark night street after the rain stopped.
Kylo , who had finished his request and returned, walked alone on the dark street.
He was a famous mercenary who received a huge amount of money, but he had no money in his hands.
He either threw it to the beggars or orphans passing by, or bought food for the street cats at an absurdly expensive price and scattered it in the alleys where there were many cats.
Money was nothing but useless paper to him, who valued only honor.
He walked on the ground where the rainwater was still pooled, and sat down on a bench by the river.
It was the only bench on the dark road where the street light was on.
Maybe it was because of the rain, but his body felt unusually heavy.
He had a wound on his body for the first time since he became a mercenary. It was a light wound on the back of his hand.
He had never lost a fight before, so it was a meaningful wound to him.
It was a request to catch a madman who had a blade fragment on his earring. He was a terrible cr*minal, or so they said.
Anyway, as soon as he found him, he beat him up so much that he didn’t even notice that the blade was stuck in the back of his hand.
He pulled it out roughly, but blood still trickled from the open wound.
But Kylo didn’t even bother to look at the wound on the back of his hand.
The only thing that caught his eye was the street light that was on.
Like a traitor of darkness who admired the light, he stared at the street light endlessly.
That’s when it happened.
A cat that usually got food from him jumped up on the bench.
The cat, who sat next to him like a friend, saw the wound on his hand and licked it with his tongue.
When Kylo turned his head slightly, the cat jumped down as if he had finished his job and disappeared into the darkness.
At the same time, the only light that was on, the street light, started to flicker.
The light flickered a few times and then went out with a squeak.
Darkness returned to the street.
A dark street with no light, and a street cat.
They were the only friends that Kylo Gray had.
As soon as she saw that scene, she fell in love.
There was no special reason. She just felt a pang in her chest.
Kylo was an outsider, a loner-like character in the novel.
She felt that he was similar to herself, and she started to like him more and more.
That’s how she chose Kylo as her favorite character and started to participate in the community.
But her SNS ‘Tweet Talk’ account, which had a minor favorite character, was always a hole in the wall.
No matter what fan art or fan fiction she posted, the reaction was not that hot.
Everyone, please look at this… Please try this…
No matter how much she promoted her favorite character, there was little income.
But… The day the first part of the work was completed.
Her account, which had only 200 followers, changed to 200,000 followers.
This novel was about the protagonists fighting the demons that came out of the crack of hell, and after the war with the demons ended, peace came for a while.
But it was only a moment of peace.
The demons, who were thought to have disappeared, showed up again.
A black crack suddenly appeared in the eastern slum of the empire, and monsters that the demons controlled poured out of it.
‘Of course, there were many casualties…’
After that incident, the temple revealed the truth that they had belatedly found out to the world.
In order to solve the problem fundamentally, they had to get rid of the ‘source of the crack’ at the top of the snow mountain, which was called the end of the world, in the northern part.
But there were only a few people in this world who had the ability to do that.
It meant that they had to sacrifice their lives to do that.
The male protagonist of the original work, Raymond, knew that and tried to go himself.
Before that, her favorite character, Kylo , left first. Leaving only a letter to the protagonist.
At the time of the end of the war, Kylo saw the imperial citizens praising and glorifying Raymond’s name and had a new realization.
No matter how hard he tried, he could never beat Raymond.
Raymond was a hero in the eyes of many imperial citizens. Then Kylo felt a desperate sense of defeat to Raymond.
That’s why Kylo chose death instead of Raymond.
The content of the letter he left was simple.
‘Heroes must not die.’
Raymond’s existence had a special symbolism for the imperial citizens.
Victory, hope, savior.
If he died, the imperial citizens would fall into great confusion.
The people who were terrified of the demons needed a hero.
Moreover, the demons grew by eating people’s fear, so the more fear they had, the stronger they became. That’s why he decided that Raymond shouldn’t die.
That’s how Kylo removed the source of the crack with his sacrifice and brought peace to the empire.
It was the moment when the trashy hate character ascended to the throne with many people’s painful fingers.
At the same time, the original author revealed the detailed appearance settings of Kylo , which had not been revealed until then…
When it was revealed that the villain character, who was thought to be ugly, was actually a handsome man with a great spec, people’s interest quickly turned to Kylo .
That’s how her SNS account surpassed 200,000 followers that day.
