I was touched by her loyalty, but her personality surprised me a little. No matter though, for she was far better than Queenie. At least she didn’t mess around. Joint practice with Lucia was impossible for the time being. If I taught her how to train in Auspicious Cloud Heart Sutra, it’d close any doors for her to learn The Path of Solar Fire.
After tossing the responsibility of Lucia to Queenie, I went back to sleep, but Rosalie had taken my bed. Not wishing to disturb her, I stayed at the bed’s corner and started cultivating.
When I woke up the next morning, Rosalie was already lying on my lap. I patted her head and woke her up. “Wake up, sleepyhead. I’m leaving.”
She opened her eyes and grumbled, “Why are you here? Go to Two Face, will you?”
I smiled dryly. “But this is my room.”
She snorted and turned away to resume sleeping, so I left the room. Gordon was already up and ready with our gift—a lobster. We went to great lengths to catch it, so it was stored in a pot of seawater for the time being.
