Along a dark street faintly lit by the moon, Roel and Alicia slowly made their way toward the closest carriage stop with linked hands. Alicia was relishing in this late night walk with her Lord Brother while Roel blinked his eyes at the carriage rushing past them.
The late night Saint Freya Academy was devoid of its usual bustle. The vicinity was enveloped in silence, making the throttling of the posh carriage that had just entered the academy ever more conspicuous.
Oblivious to Roel, the scrutiny went both ways. While he was eyeing the carriage, the person in the carriage was also looking at him.
The armored figure seated inside the carriage immediately shot to her feet the moment she caught sight of Roel. Her first instinct was to halt the carriage, but she quickly changed her mind.
She noticed that Roel was accompanied by a silver-haired girl embracing his arm. A man and a woman taking a stroll at night with an intimate atmosphere floating between them; it was inevitable that William would come to the conclusion that they were on a date.
Isn’t this… inappropriate?
William slowly returned to her seat with a bewildered look on her face as she recalled the information they had gathered on Roel.

The door automatically unlocked itself and sprung open. William made her way into the room with cadent footsteps.
Antonio was seated on his chair getting some shut-eye, but he slowly opened them to gaze at the armored young woman entering the room.
“You must be Prince William. Welcome to Saint Freya Academy. How’s your father doing?”
“Lord Antonio, my father is faring well. Thank you for your concern.”
“You’re too courteous. Your father and I were comrades who fought alongside each other. Many years have passed, but our camaraderie from fighting alongside each other for humankind will never change.
