Since Augustus had rejected me, Josephine advised me to get some rest. She reasoned that I would be able to meet him earlier tomorrow if I caught on my sleep. Agreeing with her logic, I lay my head on the pillow as sleep slowly overcame me. I recalled Josephine's words to me last night, and Augustus' handsome features materialized in my mind. Though he seemed cold and unapproachable, I could not deny that he had a warm and generous side to him as well. My face blushed on its own accord.
I wondered if my desire to meet Augustus would lead to his inevitable appearance in my dreams. As my thoughts grew hazy, I eventually drifted to sleep.
Ding! The sound of the doorbell woke me from my fitful slumber. Raising my eyes, I caught sight of Josephine, who was playing games on her phone. “Who on earth could be here at this hour?”
“Probably the person you want to see most,” she replied meaningfully.
Perking up, I quickly changed out of my pajamas and rushed to the door.
I could hear Josephine laughing at me. Ignoring her, I flung the door open.
