Chapter 75. Where Is Maryline
- The palace is very calm and empty. The day has started rising, the outside is still barely dark. Maids are waking up for their daily routine, as usual before the first cock crow. While Maryline has been loitering around till then.
- "What the hell is wrong with you?" Veruska the oldest maid asks. She hates Maryline and always calls her a slut for sleeping with kings to gain favour. "Mind your business!" Maryline slurs and moves away. "Hmmm..." I the old woman grumbled.
- "What happened to us?" the guards finally wake up dancing with headaches after a few hours of sleep. They are still weak due to the effect of the poison but strong enough to start worrying about their lives.
