"Charles... He's dead…?"
"Yes. We couldn't believe it too…"
"How did he die? Someone killed him?"
"Someone killed him, sir."
"That's just stupid! How can that…!"
"But, it's the truth…"
A young man wearing a brown military uniform sat down on his chair in shock. He sighed with a face full of disbelief. Charles zi Britannia… The 98th emperor was assassinated.
When he looked at the soldier's face with his vivid blue eyes, he raised one of his eyebrows to see that the soldier's eyes had a red ring around it. He regained his composure first before continuing with his question towards a soldier in the room.
"…Who killed him?"
"According to the people in the audience hall a few days ago, it was the former prince of Britannia, Lelouch vi Britannia."
"Lelouch!? He's alive!?"
"It appears so. Now, he's the 99th Emperor of Britannia. He also had recruited one of the Knights of Round, Suzaku Kururugi as his right hand man."
"Suzaku Kururugi… So, an Eleven, huh?"
"In addition, His Majesty granted Sir Kururugi a title "Knight of Zero", which means that he's even higher than the Knights of Round."
"New title… Well, that doesn't mean much. Anyway, if the Emperor is changed, then it must mean that I had to meet this new Emperor, right?"
"Yes. It's all according to the tradition."
"I shall pledge a vow to work and serve under him. When will I meet him?"
"Tomorrow. I asked His Majesty whether or not he wanted to meet up now, but he said that he had other things to attend to."
"Tomorrow… We're going to have a long event ahead. I'm going to prepare myself for tomorrow. It's a pretty big event, since he will be meeting his own nation."
"I understand. Please excuse me."
The soldier left the room, leaving the young man in there, still trying to grasp of what happened. After a moment of silence, he muttered few words.
"Lelouch vi Britannia… Some emperor you are."
"That's how it is, Your Majesty. Tomorrow, you will attend to one of our traditions."
"Meeting our nation, huh? I'm looking forward to it."
"So, shall I suspend the other ceremonies that is had to be arranged?"
"Do that. Tomorrow is a pretty big event. After that, the plan just had to be continued as usual."
A young man with violet eyes and white robe, looked at a council member who informed those things to him, and a curly, brown haired young man who wore an imperial costume with purple and black marks.
"Yes. Your Majesty."
When the day finally came, the audience hall was full of council members, and also the members of Britannia Imperial Family. The hall was very large, and there's a red carpet on the floor, from the main door to the stage, where the throne was located.
A young man sat on the throne. Maybe he's the Emperor. The brown-haired young man stood firmly beside him.
After the sounds of trumpets finished, the soldier who guarded the main door finally started his announcement.
"The ceremony shall begin!"
The main door finally opened slowly, and then, the same young man from earlier who wore an imperial costume too, similar to the one that the brown-haired young man wore, came into the hall.
His costume was a little bit different though. It had dark green marks rather than purple marks.
As he went inside, he glanced at his surroundings, only to see that a lot of people... no. The whole people in the room had a red ring around their eyes.
Even though he was a little bit uneasy, he decided to continue walking anyway, towards the stage's front. As he finally stopped at the front of the stage, he knelt down in front of the throne on the top of the stage.
The young emperor on the throne stood up and looked at the young man.
"State your name."
"United States of America, but now known as Holy Britannian Empire."
"State your human name."
"...Alfred F. Jones."
The young emperor sat back on the throne, as the young man who stood beside him stepped forward.
"Continue the ritual."
Even though the young man who knelt down was a little unwilling, but this was part of the tradition anyway. He lowered his head a bit more and then said a few words.
"I, Alfred F. Jones, as a human, and Holy Britannian Empire, as a nation, shall pledge my vow to serve and work under our new Emperor of Britannia, Lelouch vi Britannia."
He stood up and took his sword out of the sheath. He held it in front of his sight, firmly and steady.
"I shall be thy sword and shield. This vow shall be eternal, until the day it was severed by death."
A few seconds after the word was said, Lelouch showed an evil grin, and then the room was filled by shouts and yells.
"ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!"
...I don't even know why I'm doing this. Well, anyway. This is just the chapter one, and I'm not sure on how to continue with the plot. This is just a prologue though, and it's maybe not a good prologue. Reviews are appreciated, but don't get angry with me if I made some mistakes.
As far as I got it, Holy Britannian Empire is similar to US, since the map in the anime said so. Maybe I got it wrong, but I think so anyway. So, please forgive me if I'm wrong, and tell me if it is.
Oh, right. I forgot. This is RavenExpert.
