Hideo kept his face indifferent, yet his heart swelled with pride upon hearing Kana's decision. He could tell that Kana has grown to be a pretty and clever lady.

Both Akihito and Ken were astounded by her decision. Kirito was beyond his admiration for her cunning punishment. A humorless flicker on his eyes indicated that he was satisfied with her choice of Akihito's retribution.

Akihito could not believe his ears, but he kept his head bowed down. Surely, his punishment is not only that?

Ken has his eyes fixed on her, as if he could not believe what he had just heard from her. How could she allow a man who touched and harmed her act as her bodyguard?

'Serve as her bodyguard? What about me?'

He gripped the armrest tightly and the chair gave a squeaking sound, and his action caused Hideo and Kirito's eyes to turn at him momentarily. Ken was the only person in the room with a displeased expression on his face. He glared at her direction, while she nonchalantly averted looking at him.

Kana then let out a deep breath and smiled cheerfully at everyone.

"Ok, that is my decision. What else?" She asked, looking at Hideo.

She did not dare to turn her head towards Ken, no matter how much she could feel his angry stares on her. It is her decision after all, and she would keep her words.

"Kana, can you tell me your reason for giving such a lenient penalty to Akihito?"

It was Hideo who asked the question in the minds of the other two men in the room.

"Grandfather, Akihito has served this clan since he was born. Even before that, his family did, and his ancestors. The fact that nothing like this has happened before indicated that Akihito and his family have been very loyal to the clan. It would be such a waste to lose such a man for something as trivial as this."

She explained it in such an encouraging manner, hoping that her reason was valid enough for her verdict. She deliberately ignored Ken who just remained silent on his seat.

'Trivial, huh?'

Ken was in a world of his own, thinking about ways on how and to whom he would vent his anger later on.

Hideo nodded in approval and understanding.

"However grandfather, I am sorry that Akihito has to leave his post as your left-hand man from now on. For he has to serve me as his Master from now." She declared.

Hideo smiled faintly as he looked at Akihito.

"Akihito, lift your face and swear loyalty to your new Master."

At Hideo's words, only then did Akihito lifted his face. An expression of gratitude and veneration to Kana is written all over his face. He changed his stance and kneeled on his right knee, with his right arm placed above his chest, and his face lifted to meet her gaze.

"Lady Kana Kodama, I

ss.

He was looking at her in such a way that a predator is aiming for its prey.

It was intense.

"Ken-"

The rest of her words were caught in her throat when his lips met hers. Her eyes widened in surprise.

It was a punishing kiss.

Rough, bold, and deep. She could feel the taste of his fury by the way he kissed her. It was tantamount to making her feel guilty because she could also feel the anxiety and trepidation he has for her.

She bore it, with her heart and mind.

Her arms went to the back of his head, and accepted this raw form of his anger. She knows that Ken was never the man who talks too much, and she is willing to bear with his everything.

Ken let her go when she started to gasp for breath.

She felt like she was breathing her last as she hurriedly gasped for air.

When he let her go, her weakened knees almost made her collapse on the floor, lest not for the chair nearby where she settled herself on. He turned his back on her, still obviously frustrated.

When her breathing returned to normal, she stood up and walked towards him. She wrapped her arms on his waist from behind him, clasped her fingers securely, and pressed her cheeks on his back. She felt him stiffen.

"Ken, I'm sorry. Please don't be mad at me anymore." She used her beguiling sweet voice, but she has little confidence that it will be of any use for his anger to dissipate.

He was also breathing rapidly.

"Ken…"

He slowly turned around, and she did not let go of her arms that were holding him. He pinched her chin so that their eyes met.

"Tell me what are you sorry for." He urged her, he was obviously restraining to talk to her harshly by the way his words came out of his gritted teeth.

It made her smile inwardly, but she prevented herself from showing the smile on her face.
