It was worth noting that these were all public places that boasted a huge crowd during the holidays, and she would always make sure to return with the crowd at night.
She couldn’t afford to be alone for her own safety, but at the same time, she had to act normally in order to numb the enemy. This was what Roel had requested from Melty.
This task proved to be extremely stressful for a young, untrained woman.
Her heart wouldn’t stop beating in unease as she walked down the commercial street. Ever since she heard the full story from Roel, the feeling of being watched suddenly felt much more intense to her. She usually tried her best to shrug it off, but today, her intuition simply wouldn’t stop screaming warnings at her.
An ominous premonition grew in her mind, and she instinctively understood that the evil cultists were going to make a move soon.
