Lady Faye uttered to herself while sitting on a cushioned seat near the fireplace of the study room. Her hands were clasping on her lap, her back was pressed against the backrest, and her head was bent low, staring at the blue flames on the hearth.
Lord Jared was standing near the window sill, his eyes fixed on the sunrise beyond the stretch of the north field. " I can't believe it. To think that the stone really does hold power. No wonder the late King did great lengths to acquire it, " he stated.
" No wonder he forbade the princess to go outside the mansion, " Lady Faye countered. " The blood coursing through her veins is actually the key. "
" Tsk. . . the key to his insanity that is, " Jared icily commented, then a moment of silence enveloped the room once again.
" General Cain's body should arrive in the Soulisse mansion by this time. " Lady Faye inhaled a deep breath, then closed her eyes. The memory of last night's event was still fresh in her mind. His lifeless body, dragged out of Lianne's room after the two royal's bodies disappeared, but she noticed a sudden orb of light materialized from his body then. She was confused, unable to grasp the entirety of it.
