Fated to the Cursed Lycan Prince by Dark Knight

Chapter 1074 A Mistake

Crystal’s POV:

I desperately hoped the girl before me would cower now that she was being confronted. After all, I was the one who actually saved Rufus, so how could she possibly know what really happened?

Unexpectedly, she looked up at me and flashed a confident smile. “Of course, but since it was a very complicated, long story, I want to take some time and explain it slowly and clearly.”

“Fine. Say your piece.” I crossed my arms over my chest and glared at her with hostility. A strong intent to k*il*l her and rip her disguise to shreds with my bare hands was surging in me.

The girl pursed her lips and composed herself. She swiveled around to face Rufus and cautiously started narrating the story she’d probably just made up. “While I was painting at the bottom of the cliff, I suddenly saw a person fall into the water from above the cliff. At first I was scared, but I thought it was more important to save the person. So I jumped into the lake. Unexpectedly, the lake was very deep, and the bottom was littered with rubble. King Rufus was caught in a whirlpool under the water. Fortunately, I’m a good swimmer. After several attempts, I managed to get him to shore.”

She stopped halfway and looked at Rufus and Laura apologetically. “I’m sorry, but I’m a little thirsty. Can I please have some water?”

I couldn’t help but roll my eyes. The girl’s acting skill was so terrible that I couldn’t stand it.

Laura nodded and said, “Yes, you can.”

The girl gulped down some water and continued, “After saving King Rufus and reaching the shore, I saw the wound on his body, so I treated it the best I could at that moment. And since it was getting dark, I didn’t feel comfortable spending the night by the lake, so I took the king to a cave nearby. It was not until the soldiers found us that we were brought safely back here in the imperial palace.”

After saying that, she glance at Rufus affectionately and said, “Fortunately, His Majesty is fine.”

After listening to the obviously fake story, I sneered and exposed her lie. “When I checked the same lake after the accident, I didn’t see any rubble where King Rufus had been injured as you claimed. But I do find weeds under the water. Besides, we’re currently in the midst of winter. Unless you happen to come across some macro aquatic creatures, you won’t find any large whirlpools beneath the lake.”

The girl’s eyes shifted, and she said timidly, “I was so focused on saving His Majesty at that time, and my attention was all on him. Maybe I remember it wrong.”

I snorted. “Since you claim to have tended on his wound, you should know its location and the kind of herbs used to treat it.”

My presence certainly deterred the girl. Her countenance shifted abruptly, and her eyes welled up with tears. “The situation was very chaotic at that time, so I couldn’t remember every detail.”

Laura eyed the girl sternly. “It was you who said that you had attended to Rufus’ wound. Surely, you should at least remember where he was hurt, right?” The girl was rendered speechless. She glanced at Rufus beside her with a pitiful expression on her face, as if she was wronged.

Rufus’ face was frigid and he cast his gaze down. No one knew what he was thinking.

“I’m sure you can’t answer my question, because it’s not you who saved him.” I gave the girl a stern look and was about to tell her off when Rufus suddenly spoke up.

“You don’t have to ask her anymore. It was truly an urgent situation. It’s normal that she couldn’t remember so much. I have no doubt that it was her who saved me.”

The girl immediately smiled at Rufus. “Thank you for believing me.”

I was stunned. Was Rufus being tricked? Was he attracted to her? Was that why he was speaking for this liar?

Rufus raised his eyes at me without showing any signs of emotion. “The doctor said that my injury was so severe and only my mate could save me. If Adela hadn’t been with me at that time, I would have died. So I know clearly who saved me.”

When I heard Rufus say “mate”, I exchanged glance with Laura. A sense guilt was eating me up and I didn’t know how to reply Rufus.

“Because Adela is my mate.” Rufus’ word shocked me to the c*ore.
