I find myself staring in the bathroom mirror. It was still early in the morning, and yet, I fell asleep soundly last night. It was the best sleep I ever had since I was in Hyeon's mansion.
I blink, closes my eyes, and blinks again.
“My apology, Mr. Drayce,” I somewhat hesitated to say what I wanted to say, to relay what Kurai would like to happen about the contract. And I wish I could call him back before I could say something that could make Mr. Drayce disappointed.Do I need to feel that? Where is that damn god, anyway? “This is about the contract...” I
The bell rings.The sun is up, and I am early to go to school.
“Kurai?” I was a bit taken aback from his sudden appearance. Tension radiated from my muscles. I wasn’t expecting that this would happen to me.“Are you alright?” He asked, voice as tight as his shoulders.
“Please, I’ll just sign the contract,” I begged, “just don’t cut my tongue,” I could feel my stomach feels rock hard.“Really?” He smiled in a very malicious way showing his long pointed fangs. It looks so sharp. “but it’s
The producer met with us the next day and he was eager to see my performance to sing a song in their studio.
Shinrin. Is that his real name? Why did he not tell me about his real name in the first place and asked me to name him instead? Kurai stared at the stranger for a few beats, unmoving. The stranger tries to get up. “I thought she had called me.” She? Whom he’s talking to? Why after us when I don’t have any idea how on earth he got here and attacked us? I admit he was handsome, from his golden short hair and the depth of his blue eyes to the calm expressions of his voice, and he depicted a perfect physical appearance. His beautiful face scowls. “But I was wrong. It led me here, and it was just a nobody who had called me. I even thought a s
I stepped inside the room, where I could see that Apollo had finally awakened.Apollo’s eyes were fixed on the open window, it basked his face in the morning light. He looks so striking sitting at the foot of the bed, like a model.As I approach with folded clothes on my hands, he turns his head, looks up, and catches my eyes. “Good morning.” He cracks a small smile, but he seems nervous. “You saved me?” he asked in disbelief. “Kurai did.” I said with a smile. “I mean, Shinrin.” Yesterday as he was unconscious in the restaurant, Kurai was about to leave when I convinced him to help Apollo. I know it irritated Kurai to see me helping strangers, but he helped and say nothing
I stepped inside the empty classroom. Looking at the clock 12 o’clock- it was lunchtime. I sigh in relief when I came early before the class starts in the afternoon. I left the studio to attend classes this day as Drayce dropped me by. The school has approved of my schedules and offers tutorial to me every weekend.Kurai left without another word. And Apollo… I am not sure where he’d gone, but I let Drayce look after him. He might get lost in the city or maybe someone would try to harm him since he has the ‘good and handsome’ face. Or maybe he will get into trouble and someone else might find him extraordinary with his strength. He can hurt anyone.But a Roman god who gets lost is sounds absurd for a puny human like her. And there is something worries her thinking about him. “Hi there.”What? I didn’t hear anyone came in since I closed the door before coming in the room or even opening the sliding door.
