According to rumor, if the person entering was welcomed by the owner, everything would function normally within the villa. However, if the person wasn’t welcomed by the owner, he would be faced with a labyrinth that he would never be able to escape from.
This rumor had been around for so long that it was impossible to trace its origin anymore, but it did show the deference the populace held toward the Ascarts as a magician house that wielded mystifying powers.
And Roel had the honor of living in this scenic location as one of its masters.
“Father, are the rumors true?”
While admiring the classical design of the villa that had come from over a hundred years back, Roel couldn’t resist asking Carter about the authenticity of the rumors.
