Fated to the Cursed Lycan Prince by Dark Knight

Chapter 841 Bait

Sylvia’s POV:

“Yes. I was made as the scapegoat for the whole thing.” I angrily stood from the sofa and walked to the fireplace to try and calm myself down.

“But you didn’t do anything. How can they frame you?” Maya exclaimed from behind me.

I took a deep breath and sighed. “They probably planned this a long time ago. Rumors alone are enough to make me suffer, and they knew that.”

“What if those two insist that you did it?” Maya worriedly asked.

I sharply turned around and looked at her. “Then we have to stop the source of the rumor. Rufus planned to imprison and interrogate them, but now, things are getting out of hand. There’s no way we can stop the rumors from spreading, and people will know about these two sooner or later. If that happens, it’ll be hard to explain the whole thing. That’s why Rufus and I decided to take them out of the palace and secretly K*ll them.” “Are you sure about this?” Maya nervously replied. “The palace is now heavily guarded. I’m afraid it’ll attract a lot of attention if you take them outside the palace.”

“Rufus has a way to take them out. We have to succeed so I won’t be involved in this matter. You’re the only one who knows this except for me and Rufus, so don’t you dare leak any information.”

“Don’t worry, Miss Todd. I won’t tell anyone about it. But if you need my help, please don’t hesitate to ask,” Maya said as she put her thumb and index finger together and made a gesture of zipping her lips, indicating that she wouldn’t tell anyone.

“I trust you, Maya. But the fewer the people involved, the safer it will be, so I won’t be needing your help for the time being. What you can do for now is keep an eye on the palace and not let any strangers inside,” I replied and looked straight into her eyes.

Maya vigorously nodded. “Yes, Miss Todd!”

After a while, the rain stopped, and the room became colder.

I wrapped the shawl around me tighter and yawned. “If you don’t have anything else to say, you can go out now. I just need to rest a bit.”

“Okay, Miss Todd. Have a good rest.” Maya bowed in respect before she left.

Soon after, Rufus came back from the city hall. He put the stack of documents he brought back with him to the study and then came to the bedroom to accompany me. I weakly nestled into his arms. “Now all we have to do is wait for the fish to take the bait.”

Rufus tucked my hair behind my ear and whispered, “It should be something worth celebrating, you know? Why do you look so sad?”

I shook my head and sighed. I was still in a foul mood. Even though I intended to lower Maya’s vigilance, most of what I said was true. I had always treated her as a sister.

“Is it because of Maya?” Rufus asked. I had to admit, he was a keen observer.

I wrinkled my nose and muttered, “I hope she’s not Maya. But I also hope she is.” 

I didn’t believe Maya would do anything to hurt me. But then again, if she wasn’t the real Maya, then Noreen had probably already K*lled her before impersonating her.

As that thought crossed my mind, I began feeling even more miserable. “If she really is Maya, can she become a good person again?”

“Of course. If she’s the real Maya, then Noreen might just be controlling her mind and she isn’t being herself. That is, we’re facing Noreen, not Maya. We’re still not sure if Maya’s the one who set this up, though. But if it’s really her, we’ll have to lock her up first. As soon as we catch Noreen, we can cure her,” Rufus replied, trying to comfort me.
