I Became Cinderella’s Vicious Stepsister - 14.1
“Bella, do you feel better?”
Gaia’s gentle voice closely blew past her ears.
Liu Yu slightly nodded. She looked at her own tears that had thoroughly soaked on the young man’s white silk shirt. Only then did she wipe her tears and sat up straight, “I’m sorry. I forgot my manners.”
Her voice carried a nasal sound that hid a hard to perceive embarrassment.
“You did nothing wrong, Bella.” Gaia slightly hung down his head to look at her and stroked her head, “That’s why, can you now tell me what happened?”
Liu Yu became despondent in an instant.
The young man’s facial expression was very gentle and soft. This gentle and soft expression was the same as his usual expression, but it was also entirely different.
She could not tell what the difference was, but she could feel it.
“I also don’t know.”
Liu Yu shook her head.
In order to continue with tonight’s plan, she could not sacrifice Mary, else she would be forced to reveal the medicine that Mary had given her.
“I thought… we were friends.”
The young man persistently looked at her.
He could roughly sense something.
Liu Yu knew that Gaia was very sharp.
She looked at the people who were gradually coming over in a single row and then looked at Mary who was clearly nervous. She curled up and once again hid into Gaia’s bosom and said, “P-perhaps the horse had suddenly gone crazy.”
Mary clearly sighed in relief.
The young man disapprovingly pursed his lips.
Liu Yu pulled on his sleeves and spoke with a trembling voice, “G-Gaia, let us go first, okay? I-I don’t feel too good.”
The young man gently sighed and immediately after, the horse below him moved.
Harry’s four hooves ran at lightning speed, causing Liu Yu to fall into Gaia’s embrace.
His embrace did not look as meager as it seems. On the contrary, it was filled with a sense of power hiding in his abdomen and chest under the white shirt. The wind blew past them, hitting her face.
The smell that entered her nose resembled the clear coldness of snow, a very pure and very clean smell.
Liu Yu tightly hugged him with her arms. She could feel a bit of discomfort from the young man.
“Relax a bit. Harry is very well-behaved. You won’t fall down.”
“But, if I relax my hands, the appearance of that horse would enter my mind. It had gone crazy and even killed itself into that kind of miserable appearance…… I can only feel at ease when I lean close to you.”
The young lady’s body shivered in his bosom.
Gaia could smell the fragrance of Japanese rose from her.
He turned silent for a moment and used his free hand to stroke her head.
The corner of Liu Yu’s mouth raised up.
The instant Liu Yu and Gaia left, Mr. Edward rode his horse and came over as fast as he could.
He glanced at the black horse that laid in a pool of blood.
“Oh Lord Light God, what happened here?! Where is little Risly and lady Fergus?”
“Lady Fergus is safe and sound, and sir Risley had brought her away.”
Prince Carlo explained.
Mr. Edward took a glance at him, “Your face looks like you had eaten excrement. Sir Carlo, could it be that you also like that beautiful lady Fergus?”
“Mr. Edward, surely you jest.”
Prince Carlo let out a bitter smile.
Natasi threw a glance towards him. Her two fingers were twining with each other nervously.
Mary coldly snorted, “That is impossible. Lady Fergus has a bad temper. Brother Carlo only likes those gentle and soft girls.”
Mr. Edward was already accustomed to these kinds of people. He did not continue his words as he did not care anymore.
After that, he began to continuously mutter, “This is wrong, something is wrong……”
“Mr. Edward, what did you find out?”
Mr. Edward did not answer.
He got down the horse and did not pay attention to the dead horse’s miserable appearance. In one moment he lifted the horse’s mane, in the next he knocked the horse’s back. In the end, he carefully took out a small white card with the mark of the golden sun from his vest.
Mary covered her mouth and said, “A detection card?”
Only the Envoys of the Light God could possess the Scepter of Radiance. Normal people would go to the temple to ask for a detection card for their peace of mind.
The detection card could detect the existence of the power of darkness nearby, even if most of them were not really that useful.
Under the jurisdiction of the Light God, the power of darkness had already been driven away into hiding and became the target of scorn by the people.
Mr. Edward threw the detection card into the pool of blood.
Soon, the edges of the white card had indeed ignited with a black flame. The golden sun at the center of the card gradually turned gray.
“The power of darkness?! It’s actually the power of darkness?!”
“Gray……” Mr. Edward kicked and stamped the lawn, “I should have someone come and take a look!”
“Go! Go! Go! Children, this is not a place that you should stay!”
Mr. Edward was driving them away like he was driving away little chicks from danger.
Natasi, Prince Carlo, and Mary could only return from where they came from. As they hurriedly walked got away from the place, Natasi could not help but take another glance back.
At the place where the black horse lied down, Envoys of the Light God and Golden Knights had actually arrived. They seemed to have come out from nowhere and closed off the area from the public.
(What had actually happened there?)
(Is it related to Duke Louis who had disappeared for a while now?)
(Could it be that Duke Louis…… wants to deal with big sister?)
