Chapter 25

Nerezza's Point of View

I walked in before Farren. Came face to face with a gawking crowd. As all their eyes turned to me, I schooled my face into neutrality. Made them all believe that I was above them. Better in every way. The room was silent whilst I walked in.

Between Priamos calling and Reginald and I having a small fallout, it felt like my soul was on fire. Burning into ash faster than I could put it out. But I had to keep a straight face. Pleasantly smile when I needed to. Murmur some encouragement when it was appropriate and above all, I still had to maintain my dominant air. This was Farren's day and if one person spoke out of turn, they would face my wrath tenfold.
