After spending the entire night in my manor unsuccessfully fending off thoughts of the woman, I went back to the castle ready to bark orders and chew some bones—bones of whoever was unfortunately within my path of rage.

Surprisingly, the first person to greet me in the throne room was the crown prince who had since been missing in action yesterday night. I had expected Elijah to pester me in the manor, maybe to admonish me for leaving the woman with the healers, but he actually didn't come.

It was a welcomed change, but I couldn't also deny I had a moment of worry. I left him in the vampire realm after all and there was always a possibility he wasn't able to travel back home and doomed himself there.

I was glad he was back in the flesh and reporting to me.

"I expected you to return early. What's the reason for the delay?" I asked, unable to hold on to my curiosity.

"I had to make sure Rhea receives proper accommodation in our kingdom, brother, " he answered. My brow arched up in response.

"Rhea?"

If I wasn't mistaken, this name was meant for a female.

"She's the woman who took care of Queen Serena in the vampire realm, " he reminded, seeing my inability to recollect such person.

But the moment he reminded me, my memory of this Rhea returned.

Tall and slender neck. Had a fiesty aura just like the queen. Blonde hair. Ah, yes, I remember her. She's exactly Elijah's type.

"And where did you situate her?" I asked, digging deeper into this unexpected news.

"The South Wing of the castle, brother. She...uhm...she'll be Queen Serena's personal companion as she's a human too. They would benefit each other's company."

My dear brother, the ever sure one, looked somewhat lost for words for a moment. This was new.

"If that's the case then why situate her in the South Wing? You know very well the queen's quarters are near mine, in the North Wing."

His brows arched up for a second and then, he blinked many times as if he had just realized the situation.

"I...ah...I haven't thought of that, " he answered sheepishly.

I cracked a grin, realizing what was happening.

"Is it my time now to goad on you?" I told him. I'd certainly enjoy teasing him to no end if I turn out right with my hunch.

"What do you mean, brother?" He looked confused. Clueless. Like a lost pupp

bowed her head low again.

"As you wish, Your Majesty."

I didn't wait for her to leave the throne room. I transported myself inside my chamber after our conversation.

"Leave us, " I barked at the two remaining healers who were in the middle of their energy treatment.

Without hesitation, they left and sensibly closed the door while on their way out.

Elijah's words earlier reverberated inside my head then as I gazed at my fake wife.

'You could heal her better than any healer in our kingdom.'

"I'm here now, " I stated, clenching and unclenching my hands. "Tell me. What can I do to get you out of my bed, woman?"

Her answer didn't come out obviously. She was too deep in her sleep to actually hear my complaints.

Stepping closer to the bed, I examined her entire frame. She wasn't pale anymore. Her cheeks had returned to its former rosy hue and her face shined again. Her lips remained plump and full but its redness had tripled. I had the craziest, damning need to touch it and feel it.

In the end, I held myself at bay. Such feeling of need was just a distraction. Unimportant. Irrelevant. My wolf decided to sulk on the corner after growling at me.

Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed a shimmering, neon pink winged insect perch on the balustrade outside my balcony. It was my first time seeing such vibrant creature. I was sure to myself such an insect didn't exist in my kingdom, so I had to question myself, 'Did this poor thing just hop realms?' Or... 'Did someone created it and decided to release it from its cage?'
