It had been two hours since her presentation in the meeting room. With her mind preoccupied with Roel, there was no way Charlotte would loiter around the meeting room afterward. In fact, she rushed all the way back to her residence as soon as she could. She knew that Roel should be waking up any time now based on the effects of the spell,
Three days ago, ever since she cast a spell to knock out Roel on the mountain peak, she had been feeling very uneasy inside.
