Desiring the Cursed Demon’s Heart

CHAPTER 4: The Stolen Gem

everity of the situation before she intervened.

She didn want to get their parents involved in this because they already had a lot on their hands trying to find a suitor for the eldest daughter of the household.

In Northern Grenol and most parts of the traditional kingdoms, it was an insult for a girl to still be living under her parents roof after the age of twenty, some even termed it a curse.

And as for Baron Glatimor, he had two unmarried maidens and it proved to be one of his greatest worries.

Of course, Aella wasn one to believe in such ancient customs but her parents weren as unrestricted as her so they have been stressing over it after their family have been labelled a mockery in the kingdom.

Her mother even blamed her for not behaving like a proper lady which was why suitors were too scared to approach her for a marriage proposal but Aella retorted by giving an example of the ever elegant Aurelia who wasn yet married as well.

Although more bachelors have taken interest in Aurelia due to her several appearances in the society, she had rejected them all because she claimed she was waiting for her Prince Charming and by that, she meant the actual Prince of Grenol kingdom.

”I did not steal-!! ” Aurelia snapped but lowered her voice when Aella glared at her.

”Anything…I was just walking down the streets while shopping when I saw this terrifyingly beautiful gem on the floor, and innocent me just picked it up to see what it was before it vanished right from my palm. I promise I stole naught!! ” Aurelia explained.

”It vanished? Do you think we are in some mystical fairytale that objects can disappear just like that?! Where is the gem, Aurelia?! ” Aella hissed and stepped forward.

”I-I do not know! I swear by the gods I did not take it! Why would I take something that does not belong to me?! I have tons of gems in my cupboard, and Father will always get me more the minute I ask, ” Aurelia defended herself.

Aella relaxed her body a little as she could feel a set of headaches making its way into her head already.

She had to admit that Aurelia was right, no matter how stupid her twin sister was, she would never steal what wasn hers.

They had proper training from a young age, and noble ladies never snatched what didn belong to them.

But then, where would the jewel go? Aella eyed her sister up with suspicion.

”W-What? Why are you looking at me like that?! I said I didn take anything! Have you so little trust in me? ” Aurelia seemed hurt that her sister would suspect her in a case like this.

”Aurelia, this isn about trust or not. What you took belongs to a witch, might I remind you, a very powerful one at that. If she doesn get her item back, you would be doomed ” Aella watched as her sisters blue orbs popped open as if she just realized how grave this incident was.

The next thing she knew, Aurelia was pulling her legs with desperation.
