"I am not afraid of you, Akatsuki, so stop scowling at me." She stated.

It was a fact. She has been used to the looming and cold atmosphere that she encountered from all the Shadows, especially from Ken on their first meeting. Then, there's the Mentor and the other members as well. She could be cold and deadly, too, if she wishes.

To her surprise, Kirito laughed. It was a hearty laughter that she found unbelievable, coming from a cold monster like him.

"You humor me, Lady Kana. I hope you won't break easily…for my own satisfaction."

He said, and walked away from her.

Kana looked at his retreating figure, her palms clenched tightly.

'Arrogant bastard.' She thought.

Just then, she heard a knock on her door. She didn't have to ask who it was, because the sudden rapid palpitation of her heart told her that it's Ken.

She smoothened her clothes and put on a lovely smile on her lips before she answered.

"Come in, Ken." She said.

Ken's face showed up first, and her day became even more brighter. She already forgot the visit she got from Akatsuki.

"Kana, I want to talk to you about something."

She nodded and motioned for him to come in. She sat on one chair, and Ken settled himself on the opposite one. She could tell that he was also given a change of clothes. Now, he is wearing an all-black attire, a black jeans and black t-shirt, and his own sneakers. The front of his shirt was tucked in with the buckle of the belt showing off. She could see his lean chest from the shirt, and she has a wild imagination on how good it must feel under her palms.

"Kana, "

Her eyes turned to him as he called her name, and she realized that she was just staring at him blankly. She blinked several times.

'Focus, Kana. He might confess now.'

"Yes, what is it that you want to talk about?"

He cleared his throat. He pulled his chair towards her and he stopped when their knees were almost touching. He leaned closer to her, his eyes were serene.

"Kana, if I lose today, I want you to stay here and remain here until I come for you again."

She was dumbstruck.

'Ken will lose? No, that's impossible. Unless…'

"Are you…planning to lose?"

There can be no other explanation. Ken cannot lose to anybody. If he will lose to Kirito, she knows that it would be a deliberate one. But why?

Ken's eyes were very expressive, but on that instant, she felt that he was trying to hide something from her.

"Kana, you are the clan's leader. If I win, I cannot stay here with you."

"Then, there is no need to fight Ken. Why don't we just leave now and never come back? I don't care about being the leader. I just want to be with you."

She said it so straight that Ken was suddenly at a loss for words. But Kana meant every word she said. She doesn't care about anyt

"Kana is missing. Find her!"

His voice was like a roaring thunder. Just then, another staff arrived. He was the one who was ordered to inform Ken to proceed to the training ground.

Hideo's frown deepened at his report.

"Ken Inamori is also missing from his room. They must be together! Find them and bring them here!"

As everybody began to move, Hideo added in his leader's voice.

"No harm shall be done to Kana. For Ken Inamori, bring him back, dead or alive."

His order was absolute.

Kirito was confused, for he and Ken has talked last night and they came to a consensus about Kana. Kirito could not believe that Ken is the kind of person who would back out from his words. Ken seemed to be man to be trusted. Kirito has prided himself to be a good judge of character, and he presumed that after their talk, Ken would leave Kana with him.

After all, Kirito has no intention to harm her.

'Something is fishy'. He thought, then he caught sight of Akihito's slight smirk on his face.

'Definitely something fishy.'


Ken was already far away from the land of the Yamada clan. While he was on the way out, he sensed the presence of two persons just around 500m away from the main gate of the mansion. When he rounded up to identify them, it turned out to be two Shadows. They identified themselves as the Numbers 3 and 4. With the information he has, he decided to take the two Shadows with him as well. They will have to meet with the Mentor as soon as possible.

Ken was in deep thought. There is also a gnawing feeling in his heart that won't go away.

'Was it because of his last words to her?'

He bit his upper lip.

He did say that he does not have the heart to love her back…for now. Because once everything has been taken care of, he will go back to her, and claim her as his.

She is after all, his priceless possession.
