That night, the mysterious man appeared once more in Ceres“ room.

"I“m glad you“ve waited for me."

The mysterious man smiled as soon as he saw Ceres.

Ceres was sitting near a table and drinking tea. She waited for the man to appear because she knew that he would.

The mysterious man sat across Ceres. He grabbed the tea pot and decided to pour tea to both his and Ceres“ tea cups.

"...Name."

"Huh?"

The mysterious man stopped pouring tea when Ceres suddenly spoke.

"I didn“t get your name last time."

"So you want to know my name..."

Ceres only nodded even though she wanted to talk back. Why would she even ask in the first place if she didn“t want to know?

He continued pouring tea to the cups and when he was done, he lifted one cup and drank the tea.

"This is really your favorite, huh? I“m starting to love this one."

Ceres didn“t speak and only stared at the man across her. She was only asking his name, why can“t he tell her? Or even a false name would do at this situation, right?

"If you keep on staring at me like that, I might not be able to resist eating you."

Ceres shivered and immediately looked away.

If there“s one thing about Ceres that the mysterious man can“t take, it is her eyes. He loved it. Those eyes of hers that sparkles and glistens even though there are no tears are his favorite of all. He might even be able to live without caring for other things if he can indulge himself with her gaze.

"My name is something that you shall remember in time. You have to remember it on your own because it would be meaningless if I say it instead."

He placed his tea cup on the table and quietly stared at Ceres who was looking on the floor.

Ceres was perplexed at his statement. Remember his name? Did he tell her before? If he did... Does he know that she has missing memories? To what extent does this guy knew her?

"You have a lot of questions for me aside from my name. That is certainly something that I know. But, I“m still glad that you first asked my name. This made me very, very, very happy indeed. This trip is definitely pleasing."

"I asked because you saved me before. I don“t know anything about you but you know me... That is quite... Unfai

made the man surrender.

"Princess, please look at me. Can you please forgive me? I won“t do anything unnecessary anymore. Just please... Look at me."

She felt the pleading in his voice and also, the gaze that never once left her.

In her previous life, she was considered to be heartless. But, truth be told, she was not. And against this man in front of her, she feels that she really isn“t.

Ceres turned her head and finally looked at him.

The mysterious man stood up. He leaned and grabbed Ceres“ hand that was hiding behind her.

"I thought that you—"

"This is necessary to seal this promise."

"What promise?"

"Princess, I will always protect you. I am the only one capable to protect you. Please, don“t ignore me. Don“t hate me."

He gently kissed her hand and something inside her stirred. -tbc

A/N: I once again placed this note on the file itself but only to remind myself. This chapter shall be the last chapter I will post for the supposedly scheduled chapters 46-50. Chapter 50 shall be posted along with chapters 51-55. Why? Because I feel like this chapter is an “okay“ cliffhanger instead of posting another chapter. I feel like anyone can go on for some time without needing the next chapter. That is all. Thank you. I hope you enjoyed reading! :D

Another one, I was planning on not going online for a couple of days that“s why I felt this cliffhanger was more suited than chapter 50. But, who knows? Maybe I“ll break that plan of mine.
