We returned the next day like scheduled. I was so curious about the Azur order that I went to see my father in his office immediately after changing my clothes. I wouldn’t say I like it when I don’t know anything important like this. Perhaps it’s the reason why my father was murdered in my last life. If I know what this is about, then I’ll know what William is aiming for or at least part of it.
« I was waiting for you, Bonine. I know that your curiosity is bigger than you, » said my father.
I smiled knowing that my father knows my character, I doubted him in my last life, he always had a stern face that I thought he didn’t care about us. Even when I used to ask for something, he answered me in a poker face; I had a hard time translating his emotions.
« I came to know what I need to know and I’ll tell you what you need to know. I
« I heard from your brother Durian that you beat your father. Impressive. What a pity! I wasn’t here. I had to run an errand downtown, » said Davina.« What a pity indeed! I didn’t beat him by the way. I thought that you are going to leave. Anyway, how come Durian told you about my duel with my brother? Strange indeed, is there some improvement? » I said, putting my fingers on my chin.« I told him that I want to exchange letters with him and he accepted it, » she replied, proud of herself.«I guess he is the type of person that waits for the girl to make a move.»Davina looked up, opening her mouth to talk but finished by keeping silence. I peeked at where she was staring at; Durian was standing in front of my father’s office reading documents; the door of the office was opened. I looked b
« You got used to it, pinning me down this way. Are you playing the tough guy, Edward? » I asked coming closer to his face, but it wasn't easy to maintain the position, so I let myself sink into the bed.I felt his breathing above my neck; it was tickling me. Ignoring my question, he went at it again. He made me want him and backed off. I felt his strong right hand over mine freeing the other one, and his other hand on my right hip. I moved my free hand to his chest, unbuttoning his shirt.«Don’t move. You won’t get away if you keep moving,» he whispered.« How did you get here? »I remembered that if my father saw him, things could get ugly. I don’t want him to go anywhere. He scrutinized my face as I felt his hand down my spine.&laqu
« Bonine. Lately, you have been absent-minded. What happened? Is it something that is bothering you? » Inquired Davina, worried.« It’s nothing. I’ve been having trouble sleeping. Lately, it must be because of it. Davina, do you respect Sir William Ramezinat ? »«Actually, I despise him.»« Why? »« I don’t know; I don’t like him. He gets on my nerves every time; he shows up. »He got on my nerves too. Since that day, he’s been visiting the Rayginaz state every two days. I don’t know how to get rid of him. After his third visit, he was casual to the maids; they admired his handsomeness. I need to be wary of the changes that occurred. If I were in his shoes, I would plant a spy on my father. Someone who could&
«Caroline, I’ll be going out today. Just cover for me, I don’t know the others to know about this,» I said.«But my Lady, you are creating troubles for me. I won’t be able to get away if I am found out,» she replied.« Don’t worry; my father knows that I am such a troublesome child. »As I finished putting on my clothes, I jumped from the balcony, leaving Caroline dumb-founded. I heard that there is good competition at the GREAT WIZARD. It’s a place that I remember from my past life; I passed by it when I went strolling the capital with Edward. I still remember it; it was a raining day. I teleported myself to the capital. When you are sneaking away, you don’t need a carriage.I wandered through the street and came across the market. It was placed in a series of rooftops co
I felt that something was going to happen. My mind was restless this whole afternoon. I changed my clothes in a simple dress. I can’t deny that I had a hard time calming Caroline, who was scared to get exposed. I am glad for one thing; I gave all my family jewels that have a special stone, as long as they are wearing it, I would sense that they are okay. Once the stone gets destroyed, I would feel it and rush to help them. As long as he has it, I won’t feel worried about anything.«My Lady, you won’t sleep. It’s already past 10,» said Caroline.I stared at her and asked if my father got back from the castle; she shook her head negatively. I requested her to make another teacup. I had already decided to stay awake until my father returned. I closed my eyes, resting my head against the sofa. The sleep submerged me, but I had to make sure that my father was alright. I was
« I am sorry father, but you should go somewhere else, » I whispered.«I won’t…»« You don’t have any choice. I am sending you. I’ll see you if I could. »I don’t know where I sent my father, but I made sure to fuel the spell enough for it. I know that this might be a mistake, but I wasn’t going to let my father hinder me. He exhausted all of his mana.« I will be your opponent, William, » I said, taking my sword out and pointing it towards him.« I don’t want to fight you, Lady Bonine. I know that you have exceptional skills, but you won’t be able to fight me. »« How would I know if I don’t try? »«Lady Bonine, I wa
