Ken felt like he was suddenly suffocating and had to move his neck left and right. The lady's eyes pierced through him as if she was trying to reach his very soul.

"Who are you?" Ken asked again.

In almost 28 years of his existence, he could not remember setting his eyes on a woman as astonishingly beautiful as she is. She looks like somebody who is younger than him for a couple of years, and the serenity on her face matched the calmness of the air around her.

Having been a Shadow for about 11 years, Ken has an open mind for all kinds of supernatural existence. He could tell that the lady in front of him has a certain difference from a normal human existence.

The lady stood, ever so lightly, as if every action she makes caused the air around her to stir. Ken is mesmerized by the paradox of everything about her. She looks at him, and a very faint smile slightly parted the thin line of her full, pinkish lips.

"I am called Han'nya, Master." She answered, her eyes were still fixed on him.

Unlike all the females he met before, he could not recognize any hint of attraction from her expression as she stared at him. It caused him to smirk.

'The first female who found me unattractive.' He mused to himself.

"I am not a Master, Han'nya." He replied, and watched her intently. The sound of her name felt strange as well, similar with her personality.

"There is no mistake. You are the Master."

For the first time, he noticed a flicker of confusion on her eyes.

"No, the next Master is not here. Besides, I cannot be a Master because I don't have the mark of a Master." Ken stated matter-of-factly.

The lady pursed her lips, the first human-like action she did since he saw her. She gracefully lifted her right arm, which was lightly covered with the long-sleeved one-piece dress. Ken did not flinch when her long fingers stopped just a hairbreadth's away from his forehead.

He could not detect any hint of animosity on her towards him. He patiently waited and keenly observed her action.

She closed her eyes, and the long lashes covered her closed eyes. Ken just stared at her, mindful of every movement she was making. Even her breathing was stable, and her flowing skirt swayed with the gentle breeze.

She was standing in front of him, and her over-all appearance somehow reminded him of an apparition that he used to see when he was young. He thought then that he was just imagining things.

However, this beauty is beyond his imagination. She looks like as if she is not real at all.

She then opened her eyes, and an expression of unde

o make sure that the task is successful.

However, they made a one important miscalculation.

They targeted a Shadow.

Hideo and Kirito were left in his private chamber when all the family heads were dismissed.

"Kirito, what do you think?"

"Master, it is hard to point fingers at this incident only, but if you would assign to me the investigation, I might be able to do something to smoke the culprits out."

Kirito have at least four families in his mind. But he'd rather not say anything at the moment for fear that even the Master's room has been bugged. The only secured place for now is the space within his mind.

Hideo rubbed his chin. He is aware that his room might have been bugged. But if he would do something to remove the bug, they would have a difficult time to know the masterminds.

"I leave everything up to you then, Kirito."

Kirito nodded. He already have different plans on his head, and some of those would need the cooperation of both Ken and Kana.

He would need unsuspicious baits to make his plan successful.

"By the way, Kirito", Hideo drank his tea, not looking at Kirito but is mindful of his reaction. "When do you plan to get married? You are not getting younger. Isn't there anybody in the clan who has caught your attention?"

Kirito felt that the time stood still. He felt that his sebaceous glands suddenly opened at the same time and released all the sweat in his body.

"I appreciate your concern, Master. But please don't worry about me. I will dwell on that after this case."

Kirito put on a brave smile on his face.

'Somebody in the clan who caught his attention? Well, there is somebody. But her attention is already fixed on somebody else.'
