"Did they bully you?" Asher asked, glancing briefly at the pair of brothers, Nox and Josh, who jolted as soon as Asher's gaze landed on them.Josh and Nox looked at Asteria hopefully, as if she was the savior of both of them. However, Asteria threw them a mischievous glance, causing the two's hearts to almost sink and melt into the ground."No," Asteria said.Asher smiled, said nothing. The pair of brothers who were about to sigh in relief upon hearing Asteria's answer could felt their hearts tightened again, discovering that there was something wrong with the atmosphere."I can ask them to perform some moves right?" Asteria asked Asher mysteriously. "I wonder how their ability compares to Elias right now."
Selena seemed to have known about Asher's confession to Asteria, perhaps Elias did too. There was some hint of teasing in her eyes whenever she spoke about him.Josh and Nox naturally weren't fools. They caught the meaning behind Selena's words, which also can be served as an indirect warning. The two were the ones who suffered the most here. After they received the news, they felt as if they'd been struck by a lightning. It made sense why Asher was so furious and punished them badly.The two brothers had explained everything to Asteria as to make her believe in them."No, it's not like that." Nox hurriedly explained, shaking his head. "Actually, it's not that we were deliberately holding back, but we are weak at the moment. Our power will slowly recover, along with the control over the wolf form."
Asher had confessed everything before Asteria. Naturally, this would affect how he act in front of her. Now, he no longer restrained himself and had even gotten more attentive to her.Asteria didn't reject him, or she could say that she couldn't. There was always some guilt in her heart, yet she was unable to extricate herself from this comfort."Alright then, take care of yourself," Asher said after Asteria told her plan to go to the count's mansion. His face showed a bit reluctant to part, which was rather cute.Asteria giggled and strolled away, climbing the stairs to prepare herself. It was true that she had been enjoying herself for the past few days. However, she also didn't forget to once a while thought about other problems when her mind was clear.
It was dark, with the only moonlight shining down through the gaps in the windows. Asteria wasn't fond of the dark. She lit the lamp, instantly the sight of the room entered her eyes.She threw herself on the bed, careful not to squash her right arm in the process. The left hand reached for the pillow, hugging it to her body while sighing."Lady Asteria, the dinner has been prepared." A maid informed her, followed by the knocking on the door.Asteria, who had just laid down her body and closed her eyes, frowning. She groaned, feeling tired. Opening her eyes, she told the maid in loud voice. "Coming."Changing into the new clothes, a leathered knight outfit, Asteria came out of the room and descended the stairs. Asher had been waiting in the dining hal
Asteria swung her sword forward, successfully slashing the targeted falling leaves, cutting them into two. She inhaled, stabbing and slashing while testing her agility.She had improved quite a lot since the incident where she nearly had gotten killed. After a few days of venting the bottled up frustration by practicing her swordsmanship in Asher's place, she finally regained her calm.Wiping the sweat, Asteria sat down and took large gulps of water. While she fanned herself, her mind wandered.Asteria wasn't sure whether Asher knew or not, but she had actually caught a glimpse of familiar figures among the prisoners besides the so-called princess Adrina.It was Nox and Josh. Their wolf form wasn't that eye-catching, however, she still remembered the
"Enough," Asher stated, not wanting to play along with any longer. "If you still have some dissatisfaction. Just report it to His Majesty."The two guards jolted, maintaining the respectful and fearful expression as Asher and the rest walked away. Their figures disappearing as the door to the next room slammed close.The guards exchanged glances. They were just guards, how could they have the privilege of reporting straight to His Majesty? However, the princess was another problem now. They didn't know what she had done to land herself in this predicament. Judging how Asher didn't even spare her another glance, they seemed not to be on good terms.Currently, that stunning face of Princess Adrina was filled with fury. Glaring at the two guards, making the two hurriedly walked away. When no one was there anymor
Asher brought Asteria out of the room, realizing that the girl had been trembling slightly. She didn't have her sword to defend herself. Even if her body condition had improved somehow, it was still nothing in front of a half-transformed werewolf. Strengthening the body needed a lot of time and patient effort.That blow from that man had blasted the metal bars apart. The room wasn't created like the ones for werewolves, which contained a lot of traps and restraining force toward their bloodline.Annie's body was smashed to a wall due to the shockwave. She was currently unconscious. Thanks to Selena's persuasion that the guard finally allowed them to bring a doctor in."There's no benefit in curing the prisoner who was about to die." Elias shook his head as he explained to Asteria. "If not for us bringing our
Asteria was startled by Selena's straightforward question. She wasn't asking about whether it was true that she had poisoned Bryan, Viscount Raphael's son. The question implied that Selena had already known Annie was the one committing the crime.A complicated mood surged in Asteria's heart. Looking at the previously sweet Annie reduced into such an indifferent state. A moment of silence enveloped the whole room."You already know." A low, raspy voice answered. When Annie looked up, her apathetic eyes gazed straight ahead. The outline of her body had gotten thinner from the last time Asteria met her. It was three weeks ago."You'll be dead," Selena said rather harshly, glaring at Annie. However, there was no malice in those words. Annie's punishment could only be one indeed; execution.
"Do you want to visit her?" Asher suddenly said."Can I?" Asteria asked him with a hopeful look. She wanted to get to the bottom of this."Let's go then." Asher suddenly stopped. "Prepare yourself first."Asteria understood what he meant and hurriedly changed into one of the comfortable dress Selena had brought during her visit. As someone who was slightly tomboy, Asteria prefer the comfortable dress more than the fancy, heavily decorated one. Selena knew better about this.The long-sleeved dress went past her waist, but she combined it with long black trousers. The current style made her look like a modern girl."Let's go." Asteria urged.
