Chapter 190:Princess Secret Place
Chapter 190:Princess Secret Place
Julian just came to oversee Lucas’s condition but heard that he was unconscious and decided to wait for some time and leave if Lucas didn’t wake up after some time.
As she sat down on one of the chairs and started to look around, she heard a loud clank and turned her head to see the door of the emergency room sliding.
Opening the door, Lucas’s silhouette appeared.
Julian flinched back a little with astonishment as she saw that Lucas’s expression which was the same as that of when he fought his first match had a sour and angry expression.
Julian stuttered a little seeing his angry and pained look.
“Princess, why are you here?”
Julian heard Lucas’s question and was startled a little and but her expression went back to the same blank stoic look and she spoke.
“I came looking for you to talk about the treatment and after seeing you injured while fighting, I thought, I should give you a visit,” Julian spoke.
Lucas’s burrows furrowed and without thinking for the moment, he spoke in an irritated tone”Your Highness, I have already explained the principle of the treatment to you and Miss Ami. Can’t ask your maid or other to do that.”
“This….” Julian was tongue-tied on hearing Lucas angered tone.
She came here to take look at Lucas’s condition, after all, he was her acting butter and like his master, she should take good care of her underlying after all they were her representative.
That’s what she said to herself trying to convince herself but she was too embarrassed to say it and accept the fact that she was somehow worried about Lucas seeing him fighting brutally with Fredrick.
He was quite careless and mostly lost himself in the heat of the moment. Even while fighting Charles just to avoid frostbite, he ignited his whole hand to get them warm.
Only a maniac will do that and she genuinely started to worry about Lucas’s way of handling things.
But seeing Lucas’s roughly attitude she was lost in thoughts about what to say.
Although Lucas seems quite submissive, she knew that he had a pride of his own which no one was allowed to crush moreover, he was quite tenacious when in bad mood.
Even while sparring he wouldn’t back down no matter how much he was beaten and will grind his teeth to get up and fight again.
Lucas bite his tongue as he realised that just now he spoke back to Julian in a rough tone.
‘She will not kill me for just a small matter. Will she?’Lucas muttered inwardly.
“Your Highness, I am sorry for my unsightly behaviour. My mind is in mess after waking up after a long slumber. So, please pardon me and forgive.” Lucas spoke and bowed down trying to change the topic.
He was genuinely sorry as he knew, he shouldn’t take his anger on others.
Losing to Fredrick and faltering after thinking about the scene was his weakness and his inability to overcome it and he was solely responsible for this.
“Okay, I forgive you,” Julian spoke waving her hand.
“By the way why do you look so restless?” Julian asked seeing Lucas’s expression.
“Ohh! I think it is due to losing in the final. It hurt to lose after coming so far.” Lucas muttered with a solemn expression.
Seeing a trace of sadness in Lucas’s eyes, Julian pondered for a moment and spoke”Lucas, come with me. I will show you a nice place.”
“Where?” Lucas asked with a surprised expression but decided to follow Julian who seemed to be quite persistent in pulling him.
Lucas followed Julian and reached the garden where he met Julian for the first time.
As he walked toward the garden, Lucas looked around and muttered,’ Did she want to me bring here? But why?”
Lucas followed Julian’s lead who walked through the huge field of mesmerising and blooming flowers emitting a nice and sweet fragrance.
Lucas sniff the fragrance and felt as if his heart has calmed down a bit and he felt quite relaxing.
‘Maybe these flowers have a soothing effect and she might have brought me here to calm down. How thoughtful her.’Lucas muttered and secretly praised Julian.
After walking through a narrow path in between the rows of flowers, both of them reached a secluded place with a huge rusty wall.
Lucas frowned seeing Julian halting his steps and looking at the big broken-down wall, his eyeball widened for a moment as he subconsciously clenched his fist and again he started to feel an uneasy feeling rousing within him.
“Your Highness, what are we doing here?” Lucas asked.
Julian smiled on hearing Lucas’s question and spoke”I have brought you to my secret hideout.”
At first, Lucas felt he was going to melt to see the unearthly smile which can kill many men at once but quickly snapped out of it when he heard about the secret hideout thing and his legs started to tremble in fright.
‘Don’t tell me, she is planning to silence me for my disrespectful behaviour.’
‘No…No…She will not kill me. She is going to torture me by freezing me to death.’
‘Oh my god. What should I do? With her strength, I can’t even escape even if I want to.’Lucas swallowed his saliva and let his thoughts run wild with all sorts of horrible things that may happen to him just because of his small mistake.
Only if, Julian knew what was going on inside Lucas’s mind, she would spew many litres of blood and would start to distance herself from him forever.
Julian didn’t notice Lucas’s chain of thoughts and thought that he was just surprised and she started to touch the wall as if looking for something.
Finding the right spot, she touched it and started to pour her mana into that place.
The air swirled for a bit and a thin layer of frost appeared on that spot.
As she ejected her mana for a bit and following by which small rumbling noise started to be emitted from the wall.
The wall started to turn luminescent and started to disappear slowly and a huge gap appeared between the two pillars between the wall and a deep swallow place appeared which looked like an underground passage.
Lucas closed his mouth trying to contain his urge to scream”What the hell?”
But he suppressed his urge and looked at the underground with curiosity and started to run his mind thinking about the existence of this place.
Since it wasn’t mentioned in the novel that means, he was the first one to know about it.
Moreover, he was getting similar vibes like the underground passage from those assholes’ Villain Society hideout.
Julian turned back to see Lucas’s surprised expression and spoke”Let’s go inside.”
“Your Highness, what is inside?” Lucas asked with a trembling voice and prayed to God hoping that there were no torturing devices and it may not be the place where people are made silent or interrogated.
If thinking about the recent turn of events, the only weird thing that he can recall was using his ice skill in front of huge masses.
‘I got it. She may have brought me here to interrogate about the ice skill.’Lucas exclaimed with joy as he finally solved the mystery.
‘Wait! For what the hell am I becoming happy for. I am going to be tortured in this damned place.’
Seeing Lucas dozed off in thoughts, Julian tried to call him.
Julian’s voice snapped Lucas out of his thoughts and in heat of the moment he blurted”Please don’t torture me, Your Highness.”
“Torture…What?” Julian shrieked and blinked her eyelashes a couple of times with amazement which looked quite cute in Lucas’s eyes.
Lucas scratched his head in embarrassment and spoke, “Your Highness, from outside this place looked like the path to the torture chamber.”
“From where did you get that idea?” Julian spoke while folding her hands and tilting her waist a little.
“From a movie,” Lucas spoke nonchalantly while trying to avert his eyes like a thief still he took a peek at Julian who looked quite cute even with that icy cold expression.
Julian blinked a couple of times and didn’t know what to say on hearing such a frank reply.
“I see…” Julian muttered while nodding her head.
“I see. Lucas, you surely have quite free time to enjoy watching movies. Maybe I have been too lax on you.”
“Hahaha…Free time.What free time? And movies. What the hell is that? I haven’t heard that term. I don’t even know what movies and free time even mean. I am too uneducated for that.” Lucas spoke while smiling bitterly and thought maybe he had a talent for uttering bullishit.
‘No, no. It’s all due to that bastard Parth’s influence. If I get in trouble due to his bullshit virus, I will give him a hard beating next time when I see you.’
Julian laughed a little hearing Lucas’s words and spoke”Okay, we have enough of chit chat..”
Lucas nodded and maintaining a serious expression followed Julian.
The passage looked like a cave entrance and the walls had icy layers on it and even the roof had a layer of ice covering it.
Each time, he breathe a mist of fog appeared from Lucas’s mouth.
Although it was quite a chilly atmosphere, it didn’t feel cold rather it felt oddly good and comfortable.
Lucas saw light at the end and following Julian, he entered the bright light and his jaw dropped wide seeing the scene.
“Woahhh!!”Lucas exclaimed in surprise.
