Two hours had passed since she blasted a hole in the wine cellar and made her escape. Knowing that it would be unwise to leave through the academy gates, she rushed straight for the Fog Forest, which led straight to the rest of Leinster.
The two of them were like walking spotlights who attracted gazes no matter where they went, but they couldn’t afford to draw any attention now, especially not when Roel was in his chibi form.
Lilian lowered her head to look at the figure in her embrace. The sleeping boy’s skin was so smooth that it seemed to glow under the moonlight. His adorable eyelashes fluttered along with the wind. He had double eyelids, thin eyebrows, straight nose bridge, red lips, and a pair of small ears that looked like little clams.
Looking at the adorable little creature in her arms made Lilian feel like an arrow had shot right into her heart. Her breathing that had remained stable even as she scaled across mountains turned erratic, and her body started to heat up.
She had to tug her collar forward to allow the night breeze in before she was able to slowly regain her cool.
This was the second reason why Lilian decided not to appear before the crowd. Roel was simply too eye-catching at the moment that his mere appearance was enough to make him the center of attention.
While it was in the spur of the moment that she had chosen to leave with Roel, this didn’t mean that she didn’t carefully consider the issue. It was an intentional choice on her part to leave a message to the Enforcement Division to inform them that there were still other evil cultists in the academy in order to stall for time.
Both Roel and her had sensitive identities, such that it would stir huge chaos if they were to suddenly go missing without a reason.
Of course, the excuse of chasing after evil cultists wouldn’t work in the long run, but it would at least buy them a day or two.
This period of time was more than enough for Lilian to escape from Leinster’s vicinity. By then, she would write a letter to Chris to have her issue them a mission so as to create another excuse for their disappearance.
This would at least prevent this matter from elevating into a disappearance case, though it wouldn’t stop students from gossiping about them. The gossip would likely undermine their honor, but she thought that it was unlikely that it would get out of hand given the cold relationship they had on the surface.
Lilian shook her head with a faint smile on her lips, gladdened that she had done well with the secrecy measures of their remedial classes. She was oblivious to the fact that her other younger brother had already started to view her as a symbol of free love.
Even if gossip really spreads between me and Roel… somehow, I don’t really feel averse to it.
Lilian glanced at the boy she was holdin
