'What is wrong with him?' Hera thought to herself while she looked at Therion. He was so quiet for some time now and totally ignoring her.

'After pleasing that brute, my hand was almost numb right now and this is what I got?' Hera wanted to hit Therion's head that moment.

Since she can now move more comfortably, she decided to just hunt. She would love to eat meat right now because she felt like she will grow gills on her body sooner or later now if she continues to eat more aquatic food.

While Therion was busy tending to his horse, Hera sneaked out for the bow and arrow.

'Oh crap!' She thought seeing the binding bracelet on her wrist. She almost forgot that she cannot leave without Therion's approval because of the bracelet. Her shoulders dropped at that thought.

Hera sighed before she walked towards Therion and spoke, "Uhmm, I would like to hunt. I believe I can manage to do that now. Can you let me go? I won't go that far."

Therion did not respond. Hera inhaled and exhaled deeply. "Do we have a problem here? You have been like that after what happened this morning. Did I make a mistake on your request back then?" she asked naively.

Therion turned around to face her.

"I will hunt. Just follow me and avoid making any noise." He said with his unreadable face. Hera's lips curled when Therion took away from her the bow and arrow.

Therion was still mad. He hated the feeling that Hera was doing things to please him just because she was indebted to him.

Yes he was pleased and satisfied with her assistance before but he was also upset with her words. 'Can't she at least lessen her candidness?' How he wanted to voice his thought out loud.

"I did not hunt for meat before because you are still weak and unconscious most of the time. I can't afford to be away that long or hunt at a far distance. That is why I just catch fishes in the nearby river." Therion explained but still in a cold tone.

'How thoughtful of him, ' she thought to herself. It made her feel secured and comforted. Hera was touched with Therion's consideration of her.

Her eyes suddenly widened. 'No! What am I thinking? I must not be swayed that easily. Wake up Hera!' She scolded herself.

She cupped her face with both hands and slightly tapped her cheeks to stir herself up.

After settling Thunder, Therion began to walk and move, Hera just followed. They both saw a deer and Therion signaled her to remain at her post and don't follow anymore.

She just nodded and watched Therion's ran and followed the animal. He was fast and calm like a wind.

"YES!" Hera cheered out when she saw Therion walked towards her with the deer placed on his left shoulder.

She was humming while she walked and followed Therion. She was staring at their yummy meat from his back.

She excitedly prepared the woods to make fire while Therion was

cutting the deer. She started spinning the wood with great speed when a flame suddenly came out from her two hands.

Hera shouted, "Fire! Fire! My hand is burning!" Therion quickly ran to Hera and saw her hands were in flames.

"Just relax your breathing." Therion instructed.

Hera's eyes were rounding wide at Therion while she spoke, still in panic, "How can I relax with my hands burning?"

Therion continued, "Trust me. You will be fine. You don't feel anything right? Like your hands are hurting? It's not hurting at all right?"

Hera just glared at him in disbelief. She looked around and immediately dipped her hands in a basin filled with water. The fire was gone and Hera's hands were just fine.

"Why there's no burn or bruise, " She blurted out in amazement while checking her hands closely.

Therion sighed deeply then spoke, "King Vertud did not mention to you that you are the Guardian of fire? Are you even aware with the five elements?"

Hera shook her head. She was not aware about it at all. Then Therion began to tell her all the information he knew.

"So are you saying I have inactive powers before and it was activated and kind of just slightly active now?" Hera looked so confused right now. She still can't believe that she had that kind of power within her.

Therion had mentioned when her power was first witnessed. She creased her forehead while recalling the scene.

"I can't believe I killed the Shadow men that night with that power. I was so clouded with what Aya had told me regarding her alleged identity of mine that I did not pay too much attention to the Shadow King's words that time." Hera said impassively.

She heard the Shadow King mentioned that she killed his men and Aya bargained for it so she can be exempted with the corresponding punishment.

However, she did not give enough attention with the details on how she did it. She just remembered that she had to protect the twins but she can't recall how things exactly happened. She was just at heavy rage that time that she wanted to kill everyone standing her way.

"What did you feel or think before the fire came out of your hands?" Therion asked her with curiosity.

Hera looked up as if she was sorting how did it began.

"Ahh right I was too excited to eat the meat so I keep thinking about how to make fire faster while spinning the wood." She blurted out.

Then Hera smiled wickedly and added, "I am also thinking on how I could kill you with pleasure to pay my debt since you seemed not satisfy at all on my service this morning."

She smirked seeing how deep red Therion's face was right now.

There's no need to protect her body from him since she was no longer chaste…

So she had decided to please Therion more now since it's her only chance to escape later. 'There's no point for timidity now!' She thought ironically.
