I returned to the castle with Akhilan after spending some time in his embrace. Strangely, I was very comfortable with the trees having grey barks and purple or black leaves. I love green forests but this place was also good. Before we could enter the main hallway, my mate was ripped away from me and thrown in the air. I growled out in anger but confused when I noticed it was Maayan who used his magic to throw him away.
Before I could question his behaviour, he swiped his wand and my mate shouted in pain. A deep pain ran across my nerves. I was feeling his pain.
"Don't you dare touch what's mine. That Chandran might have paired you with her. But she is my lover and if you touch her once again, I won't think twice before decapitating you."
Maayan shouted and punched him across his face. He wasn't noticing that hurting Akhilan would hurt me.
