Emerald saw the fear creep into Castel’s eyes immediately she heard his mother’s voice. Was he scared of his own mother?
“Castel? Why are you out here with a servant?” Mrs Mourinho asked with an icy tone, her eyes moving from Castel to Emerald.
“It’s definitely not what you’re thinking mother, I have a headache and i was headed upstairs” Castel started, his tone instantly changing from the soft one he was using to a harder one. “The girl got a little lost, I was only directing her back to the hall.”
The girl? Again? Emerald felt the anger building up in her as she listened to his explanation.
“You’re lost girl?” His mother asked her with a frown.
“Yes I am, Sorry Ma’am.” She answered softly, going along with Castel’s lie, only because she was actually lost.
