I really was in trouble, wasn’t I?
I woke up around 4 AM. in Luler’s room in a state where I was naked with the source of my problem lied on top of me. It was relieved to see that he still wore his trousers.
I flipped him to another side of the bed and grabbed my school’s uniform which was lying on the ground to wear it. I had to go back to my room quickly to take a bath because I still hadn’t taken a bath last night and…
I didn’t have to say it, right!!?
Luler, who had just woken up, was staggering towards me and hugged me from behind. He drowsily nestled his head against my shoulder.
“Let me go. I want to take a bath.” I tried to push his head away but to no avail.
“You can take a bath here.”
“No, I will change my clothes in my room.”
“We can take a bath together.”
“I have already told you that my answer is ‘no’. Do you want to let go of me or do you want me to confiscate my spare key back?”
When I told him I would get my key back, he let go of me easily. I properly adjusted my clothes, but Luler was still staring hard at me. Even if you used that kind of look, I wouldn’t go back to sleep with you, you know…?
I turned to peck at his cheek before took a step back.
“Be a good child and wait for me to come back, ok?”
“I really want you to kiss at my lips though.”
“Don’t be greedy.”
I cut the conversation and walked out of this room. Actually, today was a holiday, but I had to meet with my mother in the morning. Had my mother taken an action yet?
A discreet person like my mother wouldn’t let this matter dropped. Believe me, she would interrogate that girl since last night.
When I finished dressing, I came to Luler’s room again to eat breakfast with him. In fact, I wanted to know whatever my mother took an action just like I thought or not?
“Do you want me to go with you?” He asked me before I went out of this room. His eyes were telling me that he really wanted to go. But I couldn’t do that, I would like to deal with this matter myself.
“I will come to talk to you about it.”
I told him before heading to my mother’s room at 8 AM.
“She kept on denying even if we have all the proof.”
My mother leaned into her chair and placed the documents down on her table. Punishment for a demon couldn’t be used on a human. This was the school’s contract. Demons had much more endurance than humans so they could withstand a harsh punishment, unlike humans. We were at loss for the method other than pressured her to confess. She only said that it wasn’t her.
Should I get Luler to become a witness? If that’s the case then we had to wait for an ambassador from the human side to reach here. It would take three days as the distance from the human land to here was far apart.
“I want prince Luler to become the witness, mother.”
“Prince Luler? Was he there when this happened?”
“That’s right, mother.”
“That’s good. We will file a request to punish this girl from the ambassador when they come.”
Mother, you were going all out, weren’t you? It’s a little scary.
“That won’t be a problem, right?”
“I’m not sure. You are an important person, but a normal human dared to attack you like this. We can’t let this pass by and not doing anything about it.”
I was pretty sure you wouldn’t escape this, heroine.
But, before that…
“What is it, Shiwa.”
“I want to talk to her in private. Is that can be done?”
She frowned, but it’s normal for her to do so. She might not understand why did I have to talk with that girl in private. Well, I had to do this before I couldn’t meet with her again.
I wanted to make sure of something.
“I don’t know why that girl wants to harm me or why does she want his highness that much? If that’s possible, I want to understand. She may love his highness, but I also love him too. At least, I want to clear this between us. Please, mother…”
I sent the most pitiful look to her couple with a drop of tear at my eyelids. There’s no way she could reject my request with this look, right?
“Sigh…Fine, but I will give you only ten minutes. She was imprisoned in the parole room within this school. I will let someone guide you there.”
“Thank you very much.”
She called her most trusted secretary to come inside this room. She was a wolf demon who had raven hair and tan skin. She always looked stern and serious. My father insisted firmly that my mother couldn’t hire a male secretary.
There’s only a feeling of pure jealousy that I noticed in that statement.
“My name is Deta. Nice to meet you, Shiwa-sama.” She said with a smile.
“Nice to meet you too, Deta.”
This was my first time seeing this woman because she always outside doing her works in place of my mother. I also didn’t come to this room a lot as I didn’t want to disturb my mother.
She guided me through the hall and went down to the basement. I once heard there’s really a room under here, but I hadn’t thought it was so dark in here.We had to use a blue fire along the way. Although all this room looked like a small bedroom, the iron bar was a giveaway that this room was actually a prison.
The reason as to why nobody was here must be because there hadn’t had a chance to use it. This place was used for imprisoning those aggressive demons, the demon deemed dangerous who couldn’t be placed with other demons, those demons who did a grave mistake or those who killed another student.
From what I mentioned above, it wasn’t strange for her to come here.
She did try to kill me who was the prince’s fiancee. The punishment must be heavier than killing another student, right?
“I will come back here again in ten minutes. If you have anything, you can shout my name, ojou-sama.” Deta turned to me and bowed a little.
“Yes, thank you very much.”
I replied with a smile before walked straight to the farthest room to the left. That was the only room in this place that was occupied.
“Hello, is it comfortable in there, Filne?”
I greeted her with a gentle voice. When she turned to see me, her expression was so murderous. She almost killed anyone with this kind of look.
“You…You again!!” She backed away until she was at the corner of this room. She didn’t have to be scared like that. Well, she was scarier than me, right?
“Ara~ Don’t be so loud.”
“It’s because of you that I’m like this!! What more do you want to take from me!!?”
“It’s nothing like that. I only come here to greet a friend.”
“Hello, if I don’t remember wrong then your old name must be ‘Sunny’, right?”
That look on your face…It must be true, right?
‘I will pay you back in ten-fold!!’ That was what I thought right now.
“I haven’t forgotten it, you know. That time when you pushed me down onto the road that day.”
Bear: Two more chapters to go until we reach the end!
