The audience also gave me fervent stares, and I could feel Marias wide eyes looking at me diligently.
It looks like I have no choice
With my eyes closed, I blurted out something I had been hiding for so long.
I have actually felt attracted to you ever since we first met at the Ainzlark Exams.
Your cute face and aloof expression I like them a lot!!!
I had to choose Share.
OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I heard the audience give a loud cooing sound as they smiled in exhilaration.
Why would they be happy about hearing another persons secrets.
I thought in embarrassment, glancing in Marias direction.
Her face was flushed with so much pink that I worried for her.
Her eyes looked watery, and she looked away the moment our gazes met.
Ah, I forgot! We arent supposed to communicate with each other outside the game.
It seemed what I said was too much for her to bear.
Damn it what have I done?
Now that I had said this, there was definitely no way I could tell Maria I was Lewis Griffith.
If I did, she would be so disgusted at me.
I mean, who wouldnt be?
An old man having feelings for a young girl? For real?!
But, I cant help my body
The only advantage my answer provided was that it set the pace for a topic of romance.
Now that the mood was established, Marias next question would definitely fall under that category.
Now that its my turn, I guess its time to push it
Whats the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you? I asked with a smile.
Now these are the questions youre supposed to be asking! I thought to myself with a smile.
Marias face turned even redder, making me realize I made a mistake.
I-Ill choose Share Maria murmured.
Eh? Is it that embarrassing?
Somehow I grew more interested in what she was hiding.
I actually had slight feelings for Stefan when we were kids
HOLYYYYYYY SHIIIIIIIT!!! The congregation burst out in response.
A-ah My jaw nearly dropped in surprise, but I made sure to pull myself together.
I never expected this bombshell.
Is that why Stefan was against the marriage? Was the feeling mutual? Just how old.was she when
My mind was swirling in thoughts, and before I knew it, it was Marias turn to ask.
H-How do you know so much about Magic?
What? The same question again?
I thought she was going to ask something about romance.
Why did she come back to a question I obviously didnt want to answer?
Pope, isnt that?
Its not against the rules to re-ask a question that hasnt been answered yet.
Ah, what?! Things were getting awry, for real.
Could it be that she already suspected something?
If so, then how much does she know?
If you enjoy this book, I know another one youd love just as much.
