"Sit down, both of you." Hideo said, his tone has surprisingly warmed and the hint of authority on it has dissipated a lot.

Kana and Ken sat on each chair, facing Hideo.

Hideo's eyes gently lingered over Kana, and Kana felt his emotion towards her. She smiled at him.

"Kana, I'm sure you may not like me now because of what has just taken place."

Kana slightly moved on her seat, she is feeling suddenly uncomfortable. Yes, she was pissed off earlier with all the talk about her being the clan's leader. She has no intention whatsoever to lead anybody, let alone a big and influential clan such as this.

She just wants to be an ordinary lady and be loved by Ken.

"Grandfather, can you just transfer this mark over to somebody? From what you said earlier, this mark was just created by the oracle. I'm sure the oracle could make another mark to another person, right? I don't care if you erase this mark on me because I don't have any desire to be a clan leader."

Ken was intently listening to Kana.

'She does not want the position then.'

Hideo sighed deeply. He looked at her closely, noting her resemblance to his daughter who has passed away earlier than him. Hideo Yamada is already 115 years old, but his looks and body condition is comparable to a man of 70 years old. He only has two children, one son and one daughter, and they both passed away at an early age of 67 and 62, respectively. Then, his grandchildren from them were five, 2 men, and 3 women. One of those women was Kana's grandmother. She was one of those who died at the fire during the New Year's Eve at the Kodama mansion.

During the fire, the police declared no survivor. Hideo was devastated. Many of the young generation of the Yamada clan died in that fire, all because of a one rotten family member. However, the most shattering news was that the next Yamada head was reported to be caught up also in that fire.

When Kana was just 10 months old, the oracle have shown that she would be the next head. It was the first in the clan's history that a female was chosen. Many thought that it was preposterous. But nobody could influence nor disobey the oracle's decree. When Kana turned 1 year old, she was given the mark of the head, in the presence of all the family heads, and him, as the clan leader. However, Kana's parents were against for her to be the leader. They wanted her to be an ordinary girl, because they know the heavy duty of a clan's leader.

She would never be free to choose her own path.

Yet, her parents could not do anything. If Hideo's decision was followed, he could have taken Kana into his custody and begin her training as soon as she can walk and talk. Her parents bargained for her to finish elementary school first as an ordinary child before she would be sent to him. Hideo accepted their pleas, for he knows how harsh and solitary is the life of a leader.

Then the fire happened.

However, the oracle announced that Kana is still alive. The mark has not been burned so the le

alone, she slouched on the sofa, as if all the tension that amassed on her for the past hours were finally gone. She felt that she could be at ease now. She suddenly felt sleepy and so exhausted.

She didn't know how long she has been on the sofa until she felt a warm feeling on her neck, caressing her with such intensity.

"Ken…" she murmured, moving a little to give him more access to her neck. In her mind, she was seeing him while he was nibbling at her.

The man's hand froze, and he stepped away from her. Kana's eyes snapped open, and she was looking at the pair of dark eyes that was oozing with sex appeal.

It was Kirito.

She suddenly bolted up from the sofa, standing on her guard.

"This is my room. What are you doing here, Akatsuki?"

She casted him a cold glare, but he just stood there while looking unperturbed at her enmity towards him.

"I just came to visit you, Kana." He stated.

She smirked at him.

"You were so respectful to me earlier by calling me Lady Kana. That was just a pretense, right?"

'How I hate this man. So full of himself.'

"Well, since you will become my wife soon, I think we could drop the honorifics, won't you say so, my sweet?"

"Fuck off." She cursed at him. She has never cursed with Ken, but with this man, she doesn't care about her manners.

Kirito looked at her with smoldering gaze, and she stepped back as if the heat from his eyes was consuming her. She looked behind her and found that she was near the wall and when she turned her head back at him, he was already standing close to her.

Too close.

Her mind screamed of danger. His smell was intoxicating, and his presence was overbearing, making her feel like a little lamb in front of a tiger's open mouth that is ready to feast on her.

"Tsk-tsk. Such nasty word. Let me teach you what you should be doing with this lovely little mouth of yours, Kana."

With that, his hand reached behind her head in a second's time and pulled her closer until their lips met.
