Based on what he had agreed on with Lilian, they were supposed to have already changed shifts by now. However, she didn’t come in to wake him up.
I guess it’s a good thing that my encounter with Artasia allowed me to wake up in time, or else I might have slept till the following day.
After tidying himself up, he walked out of the bedroom and saw Lilian sitting gracefully on the lounge outside, diligently guarding the area. She was a little surprised to see Roel up and moving around. She had just checked on him a while ago and he was still fast asleep then.
“You’re awake? Did something happen?”
“It’s time for us to change shifts. You should have woken me up.”
“I’m stronger than you. Besides, it’s only right for me, as the older sister, to take care of my younger brother.”
Lilian’s insistent attitude made Roel sigh yet again.

Unable to find reasons to rationalize this bizarre peacefulness, Roel felt deeply uneasy, as if he had overlooked something very important.
His thoughts were soon disrupted with a shout coming from the bedroom.
Roel dashed into the bedroom the moment he heard Lilian’s shout, but there were no enemies in the room. There was only a trembling Lilian sitting on the bed, breathing raggedly.
Did she have a nightmare?
Noticing how Lilian’s amethyst eyes were quivering uneasily, Roel reproached himself for his carelessness. Too many things had happened recently that he had forgotten that Lilian wasn’t in the right state of mind at the moment.
Right before entering the Witness State, she witnessed the gruesome corpse of one of her acquaintances. The revelation that they were bloodline kin distracted her from the t
