*Tetsuya*

I opened my eyes. Rosalba slept on a chair by my bedside. Sitting up, I slowly got out of the bed, careful not to awaken her. All that I could recall from the battle against creature of the abyss was getting blown away.

"Good to see you awake, " Serrano said, grinning.

I waved at him and leaned against the door after closing it. "Hey..."

"Here, " he said, offering me a can of coffee. "Use this to recharge."

I smiled slightly. "I... couldn't do a thing against that beast..."

"Well... if it makes you feel any better. Nor could the others. Even the king had difficulty."

"Is he alright?"

"Yeah. Father woke up on the way back. The other knights are barely starting to wake up, " Setsuko said as she walked down the hall.

I snapped my can open. "That's good. Is my older brother fine?"

"Takuya fainted too. But he woke up nearly right afterwards. He's been worried for you but he had to leave. He asked us to care for you, " Serrano said.

"Something?"

Serrano fidgeted. "He didn't say what it was, but it must've been work. A demon hunter can only rest for so long."

So he wanted to make sure that he had money for our family.

"What about Kohri?"

"He stayed back. The king failed to close the portal so he went ahead and did it himself, " Setsuko responded. "Anyway. I came to inform you that we're having a ball this afternoon to celebrate your victory for the creature of the abyss."

Victory? What victory? We lost... The king was the one who managed to defeat it.

A hand touched my shoulders, snapping me out of my thoughts. I glanced up expecting Serrano but saw that it was Setsuko. "Don't let it get you down. We won't win all battles. Plus there was a reason for why Father went to aid you. The being was just that strong. Father said that it was one of the four 'governors' of that realm of darkness. So lift your chin."

She was right...

I smiled and nodded. "Alright. I'll try. Thanks for cheering me up, princess."

Setsuko's face flushed red. "D...don't call me that."

"Why not? You are a princess."

She put a hand on her hip. "Do you call my sister that too?"

"No... at least not that I can recall."

The oldest princess grinned. "I see. It is nice to see you two get along so well. Is she still in there?"

"Yeah. She's sleeping, though."

"Oh. I will carry her back to her room. Go with your cousin to get some nice clothes for the ball. I will be paying so do not concern yourself wi

anks for showing me to my room, " I said, laughing nervously. It was only the second time I used it.

"No problem. I'm always happy to help. Good night, " Rosalba said, kissing me on the lips. She backed away quickly. "Ah! Sorry."

I avoided looking into her eyes. My face felt like it was on fire. "That's... alright." I turned and opened the door to my room. "See ya tomorrow."

She smiled brightly. "Yeah. See you tomorrow, young hero." She rushed off, leaving me alone. I closed the door and sat down on my bed. I must've been grinning like an idiot all night...

*Rosalba*

I was walking back to my room after dropping my knight in his room. On the way back I kept looking at the necklace that used to belong to my mother.

"Good, Setsuko hasn't noticed that it's missing yet, " I murmured to myself as I stared at mother's necklace. My sister would probably be furious at me if she discovered that I had taken it without her permission. I had to find some way to avoid suspicion...

I stopped in front of my room and took in a deep breath and shook my head. "Perhaps she wouldn't get mad?" I took in another gasp of air. "I should just sleep on it, something will come to me."

Suddenly a hand curled around my mouth and pushed me into the room.

"Let go of me!" I yelled out but the hand muffled my voice. I tried to kick whoever was grabbing me but the person blocked and pushed me into the floor. The figure had with him what seemed to be a shield but I couldn't make up the shape of it...

"Tetsuya?" I asked before being knocked out.

**Solar Question: Who do you think attacked Rosalba? And why?**
