“Nile? What are you doing there?” Ashriel asked with a stern tone and motioned Siel to put her gun down. Siel did as she was told but did not put her guard down. Her eyes then searched the surroundings.
“What’s wrong?” Ashriel asked with a softer tone, seeing that Nile’s eyes were sharp for a three-year-old boy. Nile looked at the orphanage house before pointing to the flower beds not too far from them. “What’s in there?”
“Bodies.” Nile answered swiftly making Siel stop. Ashriel’s eyes narrowed.
“W-What?” The smile on Ava’s lips was totally erased as she felt her heart beats faster. Her hand that was holding the bottle became sweaty as her grip on it tightened. Ashriel remained calm with her blank expression.“I said drink” Ashriel said again more firmly.“N-No – I mean, why? I-I… I made it for you- mph!”Ashriel wasted no time and quickly grabbed Ava’s cheeks and squeezed it pissedly.
Nile felt his chest ache every time he inhaled air. Yuria and Jared felt the same and Yuria cried in fear. Ashriel grinned her teeth. The three inhaled a lot of that poisonous gas.“Stop crying,” Nile said and cough. “You’re worsening your situation, Ria.” He added as his voice faltered. Yuria crumpled her chest firmly as she swallowed the lump on her throat. It hurts so bad for a three-year-old girl.After a minute, Siel found the antidote Venice gave to Ashriel before she left. Ashriel suddenly felt her chest ache as well but ignored it. Jared lied on the mossy ground, unable to breat
“Zil!”Ashriel opened wide her eyes as she gasped for air. The forest was cold, but she was sweating heavily. Nile was shaking her shoulders anxiously.“Young Master, what’s wrong?” Siel asked worriedly and wiped Ashriel’s sweats. Ashriel pants, then slowly takes a few deep breaths. “Are you hurt? Is your stomach okay? Was it the poison? Or was it the antidote?” Siel bombarded. Ashriel shook her head and washed her face with her two palms.“None of the above.” She whispere
The room was quiet, and the only sound that echoed throughout the whole room was Olive’s pen being tapped on the glass table. She took a deep breath and sighed deeply, then breathed again. She looked at her phone and saw that the code had been sent. Olive tapped her pen again as her feet shook. She leaped from her seat when the heavy door burst open, revealing a huge figure.“Y-Your Majesty,” Olive stuttered and bowed her head in respect. “What brings you here?”Valor looked at Olive, and his gaze fell on her phone. He frowned, and his eyes narrowed.“I just want to check something. Now that I
A shattered glass sound took the Cadre by surprise when Nathan suddenly lost his grip on his drinking glass. The Cadre stopped training, and their attention went to Nathan, who was in a state of shock too.“What’s the matter, Bud?” Natsuki asked, full of concern, and swiftly walked towards Nathan, whose eyebrows frowned deeply. Nathan gulped as he felt his heart pound wildly. What’s wrong?“I don’t know. I just… I feel something odd.” He breathed out heavily and flinched when another shattered glass sounded.&nb
Olive slumped into the black leather settee, calmly blowing softly on the surface of her steaming cup of tea. The aroma filled the air as her lips slightly curved a small smile. She is in a good mood. Olive inhaled the aroma as the peaceful morning started. That’s what she thought.“Quickly! Move quickly!”“Cover the whole palace!”“Secure the Ruler!”
Xieaniel leaned over the polished oak counter and pulled his laptop. He frowned when three familiar red dots inside their Headquarters greeted him. He fixed his glasses and clicked the dots for confirmation, then he gasped.“Huh? What’s wrong?” Raith asked curiously as he drank some water. Xieaniel did not respond and focused on the two red dots.“Why is it like this?” He whispered and frowned deeply. If it is three persons, then the three red dots must be separated, but that is not the current state. Xieaniel expanded the view of his laptop and checked his rings and Raith’s rings. They were close with each other now, but the dots were separated
It happened again. The devastating incident that none of them wanted to experience unexpectedly happened again. They lost their Ruler, their Leader, their Head. The whole Cadre and Elder grieved with Ashriel's demise. They cannot even see her body, only her ashes. After the Elders learned the devastating news about Ashriel's death and Edom's comeback, Emmette decided not to announce Ashriel's death. None of them are in the mood to fight yet. Moreover, it was hard for them to shake off the thought that their Ruler died because of them.The Elders and Cadre slowly left the palace one by one after hiding Ashriel's ashes inside her room, where only a few people were allowed to enter. All of them went to where they wanted to go to grieve personally. Nathan refused to go
