e. This was not her place. Julian was offering a good deal but…

”Eliana. ” She turned to Carolines raised brow. ”Follow me. Julian will not be rejoining the party. ”

Eliana nodded and followed quietly, her head lowered. Caroline took her through the long flight of stairs, Then upwards towards a set of rooms. All had the same doors, and she wondered if any of them would be different.

”Choose the room you want to stay in. ” Caroline said, then folded her arm and backed away.

”Is it all the same? ”

Caroline shrugged. ”You are free to check. ”

Eliana nodded and opened the first room. She expected it to be plain, probably just offering the most modest of furniture. When she opened it, it matched her expectations.

There was no colour code at all, and everything seemed to have been bought differently, rather than in a set.

She closed it and walked to the next. Caroline watched her, a sinister smile on her face.

She decided to expect more. Maybe royal. He was after all, one of the richest in the city. Maybe…just maybe this one would be better.

She opened slowly and stepped in. A double queen size bed whose cushioned head board stopped at the very end of the wall graced the middle of the room.

The furniture seemed cut out of the bed, with all of them having mirrors. Mirrors that disected her image in them. It was large and spacious, and when she walked further, her feet sank into the soft fur carpet.

”It is beautiful. ”

”As you expected, right? ”

Eliana nodded. ”I thought I should expect more, and it didn let me down. ”

Caroline nodded. ”Your expectations will not let you down as long as you are here. ”

”How so? ”

Caroline simply shrugged. ”Is there someone who will be bothered with the fact that you are here? A relative, a parent? ”

Eliana shook her head. ”I am an orphan and…I never knew any relatives. ”

”Perfect then. I do not like to deal with unnecessary mess. Settle in. ” With that, she left the room, then locked the door of the other rooms with a key, leaving only Elianas unlocked.

”She has no relative, Julian. So we have nothing to worry about.

”Still check. I do not have the patience to contend with reports and all that. ” Julian lifted his hand to his head.

”You seem restless. ” Caroline said. ”I have never seen you like this. ”

He broke into a smile. ”But how have you ever seen me? Kind? Generous? I can not wait any longer. Caroline. Fifty days…it is way too long. ”

”I know you for patience. ”

”And I do not intend to tarnish that image. Take care of everything. ”

Caroline nodded and watched as Julian faded from her sight, and she turned towards the dark path of the dungeon. She made her way slowly, till she came face to face with the iron doors.

”You are back, ” She heard from inside the smaller door.

”It is not the piece, Bastien. ”

”What do you mean? ”

”The person with the piece fell for my spell. If she really has the piece, she would be immune to it. ”

A small laugh came from the room. ”Poor brother. Does he know? ”

”No. ”

”Do you intend to tell him? ”

”Never. ”
