"I will give you anything, except for love."
A reorganization of the contents in the novel version of "Inwaku no Hakoniwa", with a Luciano end added.
In the middle of a madness-filled garden, what kind of future will you choose--
In this continent there are three countries; Arxia, Nebraia, Kinisis.
From the olden days Arxia, known for its peacefulness, had built a long friendly relation with Nebraia, but Kinisis, formerly separated by a high mountain range, has a history of invading other countries, and so it was divided from the other two countries by a line.
Particularly in the recent years that the emperor was changed, Kinisis started to show an attitude of force, like how it used to in the past.
In the middle of this, the first princess of Arxia, Liliane, was engaged to the young king of Nebraia, Luciano, in order to keep Kinisis in check.
However, on a night near the cusp of the marriage, Kinisis raided Arxia and the emperor, Leon, made Princess Liliane his own.
With her country destroyed and even her body violated, Liliane harbors a hatred for Leon...?
Because she protected her citizens from disaster, the Silver Princess has become an object of faith.
Luciano (CV: Murasakihara Haruka aka Suzuki Chihiro)
The king of Nebraia who is Liliane's betrothed.
Although he has only recently ascended to the throne following his father's death, his authority as a monarch is immediately shown through his high intellect and popularity amongst his citizens.

Luciano: At any rate... *sighs* I won't allow it... Even if it is but a moment, to steal my princess' heart merits a serious crime. No matter the evil, I shall not allow it.
Luciano: Aha, it's mean to laugh when I'm serious! We are the Golden Sage and Silver Princess;... like the legends of old... your country Arxia and my country Nebraia will lead together and drive away all evil!
Luciano: Or so... That kind of power... it's interesting that we have it, huh?
Luciano: Truly, it is vexing that there is a limit to how I can exert my powers. If I had the power of the legends, I could save you at any time.
Luciano: It's a sad matter... We are but human. *fade out* Ah, of course, without power...
Leon: Do not tremble like that... It makes me want to make you cry more.
Leon: "I'm not trembling", such fine words! When your voice... and your body... is this frightened of me.
Leon: *kisses* Mm... *kisses* I thought the expression "kisses are sweet" was idiotic but... your lips are... sweeter than pleasure... Better than any high-grade sake. It is the taste of triumph. Nn...
Luciano: Liliane... Hehehe... Liliane.... Hehehe.. I wonder where you are?
Luciano: Ah, I know! You're playing hide and seek in that garden over there, huh. I'm good at that, so I'll find you immediately.
Luciano: *walking around* Here...? Or over here...?
Luciano: Ah, on second thought, you must have went over there! *walks off*
Luciano: Just kidding... There's no way I wouldn't find you, right?
Leon: Come, Liliane! I will protect you from all calamities!
Luciano: Bastard, what do you UNDERSTAND ABOUT ME!? YOU KNOW NOTHING! NOTHING!! YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING!!
Leon: Now sleep deeply, my empress... for outside this garden... there is no happiness for you. *kisses*
