Despite being in the midst of a fight, being in such close proximity to Roel still made her heart beat rapidly. However, she quickly shook the mood off and focused on the battle once more.
The huge explosion caused both sides to come to a momentary ceasefire as they tried to comprehend what had happened. Charlotte, who was lying in Roel’s embrace, opened her eyes and noticed that the mana pulsations in the area had amazingly vanished all at once.
Realizing that this was a perfect opportunity todo it, she decisively raised her gun once more, but this time around, it was aimed at no other than the black-haired boy embracing her.
Roel was initially shocked, but after hearing her words, he hesitantly nodded in agreement. The trigger was pulled, and a resplendent white burst of light swiftly expanded before his eyes, eventually filling up his field of vision.
