Chapter 1030 Back To The Imperial Palace Reluctantly

Crystal’s POV:

Rufus pursed his lips and remained quiet for a few minutes. Then, he said, “Maybe I’m mistaken. I seem to notice a slight difference in your demeanor when you’re dealing with acquaintances and strangers. Sometimes I get the impression that you’re also familiar with me.”

I was nonplussed for a second before I smiled. “You’re definitely mistaken. This is the first time I’m visiting the imperial city and meeting you. I was nobody before this. How could I know you? And I haven’t stepped foot outside the border pack since a*s*suming the position of Alpha.”

Rufus’ eyebrows furrowed as he countered, “I would never forget someone I’ve met.”

“You claim that you remember everyone you meet, so search your memory. Have you seen me before?” I asked. Rufus tilted his head and studied me thoughtfully. I held my breath and summoned my courage to meet his eyes, praying that he didn’t suddenly recall anything about our past.

After a while, he looked away and indifferently said, “I’ve definitely never seen you before.”

My body sagged in relief and I instantly changed the topic. “I wonder if Beryl is awake by now. If she has woken up, she might be crying for you.”

Rufus didn’t respond. He looked at his watch and said,

“It’s late. Let’s go back.”

He walked out of the room first and instructed the female officers to bring both kids to us.

Beryl was still fast asleep. As soon as Arron spotted me, he rushed to me and grasped my hand. He positioned himself right next to me.

Everything happened last night and this morning must have frightened him. I affectionately ruffled his hair and asked softly, “Are you okay?”

He whispered back, “I’m fine, and so is Beryl. But she is still sleeping. I’m a little worried.”

“She is just tired. Let her sleep a little while longer,” I said in a comforting voice and hugged Arron.

Rufus stepped closer and took Beryl from the female officer’s arms. He said to me, “Beryl should stay with me for now. You can visit her anytime you want.”

My gaze bounced to Beryl, who was still out like a light, and I nodded unwillingly. Staying with Rufus was the best option for Beryl. Now that I wasn’t rushing out of the imperial capital, I could let Rufus take care of her for some time.

I inhaled deeply and added, “Beryl might be cranky when she wakes up. Please look after her.”

Rufus instantly replied, “I will. You don’t need to worry about that.”

Then he shifted his attention to Arron, who was still bandaged. He scowled and asked, “Hasn’t Arron recovered yet? His face is still wrapped in bandages.”

I quietly pulled him behind me, shielding him from Rufus’ gaze. “He has almost recovered.”

“Let my doctor check him again. His wounds are always covered and can’t get enough fresh air. That hampers the healing process,” Rufus suggested.

I became a little anxious and quickly refused. “No, thanks. I’ve got this under control. Arron will be fine soon and his dressing will be removed then.”

Rufus’ eyebrows nearly disappeared into his hairline as he said, “That’s good to hear. If you need any help, just bring him to me immediately. I don’t want you to complain that I didn’t treat you, a guest from the border pack, well.”

I rolled my eyes and shot back, “Then I should thank you in advance.”

Over the past few years, Rufus had not only got more cunning, but he had also become proficient in sarcasm. I really didn’t see that coming!

I clenched my jaw tightly and glared at him again, saying, “Let’s go. I’m tired and want to sleep.”

After all that happened, I was both mentally and physically exhausted.

Rufus’ car was just outside. After sitting inside, Arron and I dozed off, resting our heads against each other.

Soon we went back to the capital. After I got off the car with Arron at the new place Rufus had arranged for us, he took Beryl back to the lycan king’s palace.

As for me, I took Arron inside to rest. While I was removing his bandages, I realized that I wouldn’t be able to leave the imperial city for the time being and it was indeed a bad idea to keep Arron’s face covered all the time. As this thought crossed my mind, I felt helpless and annoyed.
