After a good bath, I met Bonine sitting on a bench right outside in the street torturing the bird.
"I was wondering for a while but, aren't you an odd fellow? You have the intelligence of a regular person. Who is that master of yours?"
"He is the mighty Diego. How about you become my master's bride instead of staying with that good for nothing? My master is a good man. He will give you the life you dream of. I feel like you desire a normal rich life where you have everything you want, with many servants and girls... I mean boys, handsome ones..." I flinched. I wonder what she will answer?
She grimaced. "You deserve another beating. Do you know who he is? The one you are badmouthing."
"Whatever he is, my master is better. It is not like he is a king."
"He is a king."
The bird screamed and flew away. "Excuse me. I do not want my feathers taken away. I guess there is no future for you and my mater. Goodbye! I hope you will have all the ha
"I was wondering for a while, young man. Why can't I read your thoughts?"It was a question that made me panic. I did not want to say who I was exactly, and at the same time, I admired the man in front of me. He was sitting elegantly, showing signs of wisdom and a lifelong experience. I never imagined that I would be meeting the ancestor that everyone admired."He is your great-grandson or great-great-grandson, I do not know exactly," Bonine held my hand and smiled at me. Thinking it was fine to tell him."That is surprising," Zadimus laughed, and his laugh was contagious. I laughed at my turn. I did not expect him to believe us. I truly wanted the wisdom of such a great man, "from the way the young man looks at me, I guess I must be someone you really look up to. You see, young man. I am no great man. I wander these lands keeping the door in the dungeon under us in control. I do not know exactly how to seal it. How is it, the life in the future?"
"We also have a legend about your deeds... more like it was about the portal. No one knew it existed beside a few nobles and the Rayginaz family," I explained."This is strange! I do not dare show off. The portal indeed exists, and I am keeping it at bay. However, it was a matter that I had to do in exchange for debt. We do not dare to blend with people, and also, we do not dare to take a human bride. It is already odd for me that you exist. From your words, that means I took a human as a friend and another human as a bride. It will shorten our lives if we do so.""In every generation of the Carmander royal family, there was a human bride. As to strengthen the bond between humans and vampires.""Then that means you are dhampirs. Vampires have a long lifespan, we like living in isolation, and we cannot stand humans. I am already doing my best to coexist with them.""As I thought. I found it already strange that the royals do not live as normal vampires," s
"Now, I want you to get out of here, and I hope I would never see your faces again," Barbara pointed at the back door and urged us to go. I stopped right in front of the door after Edward left, waiting for me outside."Is it really alright to go like that? I can help. I know I can do it.""You were the only one who was called traveller, you know. You may not know who you are, neither I do. However, you must be someone who had already seen enough and chose to experience the same thing all over again. Please stay out of it. This is our battle. Zadimus must have already knocked your friend. Take him and go. We will take care of these things. Since you exist, our battle will be successful."She pushed me outside and closed the door behind us. I did not know what to do. Suddenly, an idea came to my mind. We can help them kill the demons that will emerge from the portal using Xavier and his pack. I looked at Edward briefly and ran to the hot spring. I was confident I
