Roel released Lilian’s hand and headed off to open the door. A familiar young man stood outside.
Roel was surprised by his unexpected guest.
On the other hand, Antonio didn’t voice any objections to Roel’s intimate manner of address. He took a quick look at Roel and was amazed to see that the latter was still energized.
He didn’t expect Roel to recover so well.
It was just yesterday that he was on the verge of death from his severe injuries, but despite having been in this room for three hours now, he showed no signs of exhaustion at all. On the contrary, he looked refreshed as if he had drunk some sort of tonic.
“Are you done yet?”
