Fated To The Cursed Lycan Prince by Dark Knight
Chapter 1191 Spies (Rufus’ POV)
Some of the kids screamed, their fear raw and palpable in the air.
“Be quiet,” I said in a hushed voice. Thankfully, most of them did as told. Their sobs became quieter, though they never really stopped. I felt a pang in my chest as I realized that the poor children were doing their best to stifle their weeping.
“Remember, you must not tell anyone that I was here, okay? If we meet again in the future, just pretend that you’ve never seen me before.” I paused, unable to leave despite myself. “Don’t be afraid,” I added. “I promise to come back soon and save all of you. But for now, I need you to wait. Can you do that for me?”
I saw several heads bob timidly, and that was all I needed I pushed past the door and walked out of the room.
After wandering down the hall for a while, I heard some noise coming from one of the open rooms.
I pressed against the wall and stealthily poked my head through the doorway. The room was filled with the clown goons, who were mostly pacing around restlessly.
One of them had a more slender build, and was wearing a pink mask. It must be the she- wolf they had been talking about. What really piqued my interest, however, was the little boy in her arms.
He was wearing a mask, too, so I had no way of seeing his face. But from what I could tell, he looked to be the same size as Arron It hit me then-there was a high chance that this was indeed Arron!
Unfortunately, the she-wolf held him tightly, as if she was afraid that someone would snatch him away. She never put him down, even as she moved around the room. Needless to say, I couldn’t take the child away without causing a commotion.
As if it wasn’t bad enough that I had to rescue another group of children from the second floor as well I was mulling over my options when the clowns’ squabbling grew louder, and I couldn’t help but listen in on their arguments.
“There are spies here,” the she-wolf said angrily. There was a sharp quality to her voice that made my scalp tingle.
It almost sounded like long nails being dragged against a chalk board.
“Thai’s not possible,” The res-masked clown Jack countered in a booming voice. “Lee said so himself. Are you saying that he lied?”
Jack faltered upon hearing that, and he shut his mouth and hung his head.
That man, Lee again. By all accounts, he seemed to be a very dangerous enemy. He found out about our presence in such a short amount of time.
“In any case, it’s not our fault. We’ve only done as we always have. The spies should be blamed, damn them and their excellent disguises. The chaos from earlier didn’t help, either. But get this-Lee managed to catch one of them, a female. She pretended to be Crane, and almost fooled me, that bitch! Luckily, Lee arrived just in time and took care of her.”
“What do you mean? Did he kill her? We can’t risk getting exposed. That woman must be silenced, no matter what! If Lee needs someone else to do the job, I can get on it right away!”
This came from one of the clowns, who appeared strangely frantic.
“Oh, you don’t need to worry about that. I’m pretty sure he has already eliminated her by now. Anyway, she was skulking around my room and even tried to take the boy away. She was already knocked out when I left. I doubt Lee would let her go after everything.
I felt my heart stutter when I heard this, and then it picked up its pace, thundering furiously inside my chest.
Damn it! She must be referring to Crystal! Lee had captured Crystal!
I take a few deep breaths trying to calm myself, but my mind kept racing with barely cohesive thoughts.
