Summary: Prince Minho is the son of an arrogant, superstitious king who believes that he can overthrow his enemies with the help of a sorcerer that has been prophesied throughout legends. Because of this, he hires a Court Seer, named Kibum, to warn of his arrival. Prince Minho, on the other hand, can't stand to listen to all of his father's crazy ideas and has never been able to get along with Kibum, much less this new guy that's supposed to be THE sorcerer. It's even worse when Minho starts to realize that he has feelings for this make-believe wizard, feelings that could land him in a heap of trouble.
The sky was a vibrant green, almost mimicking the ground, as a single robin flew overhead and landed on the shoulder of a young man. The irony of the situation went unnoticed to the small bird who did not find it remarkable that the man that he perched upon had a physique quite opposite to that of the traditional hero. What he lacked in structure, however, was more than made up in the sheer power that radiated off him.
The man turned to the robin, extending an index finger, and watched as the bird hopped onto it. He smiled gently as he quietly whispered a few soothing words to the creature, his eyes shining a deep green as it took flight. The man watched in silence for a moment before his still-shining eyes came to rest out in front of him, seemingly looking into the soul of his viewer, a smile once again gracing his lips.
The robin flew at a vigorous speed, on a mission to reach its destination. For days, it did not eat or sleep, finding that it had no desire to. The robin almost seemed to sigh in relief as it rested its eyes on a familiar castle, seeking out the right window and rushing towards it, hitting the clear object with a mighty thump.
Kibum woke with a start, his heart pounding in his chest as he tried to regain his breath enough to call out to his servant.
“Jjong!” Kibum placed his hands over his face, wiping the sweat he found gathered there.
“Yes? Yes? What is it? Are you alright? Has someone hurt you, Kibum? Tell me what you need,” Jonghyun exclaimed, rushing into the room in such a flurry that he almost blew out the candle that he was holding.
Kibum looked over to the windowsill. Funny, he almost expected there to be a robin there waiting for him.
He turned back to Jonghyun, his hair sticking up in every different direction.
