“What’s wrong, Shir? Feeling unwell? Skyler rested one arm beside her and played with her ear. “Y-You’re so bad!” She was angry and embarrassed, but she could not hold her lust in anymore, so she started crying. “Oh, why are you crying?” He smirked and leaned down. “You want it?”
“Yes.” She sobbed. “What do you mean by yes?” He teased her again. “I… I want it.” “Want what?”
“It.” “Well, I can’t just give it to you. Why don’t you do it yourself?” Shirley’s tears excited Skyler, so he kept teasing her. “I… I don’t know how to do it.”
“It’s alright. I can teach you.” He held her and switched positions, tutoring her on the right way to do it. They then resumed their deed happily.
On the other hand, Veronica was worried sick. After she took a shower, she sat on her bed, feeling so tense that she could not even sleep. She had no idea where Matthew was. Even when she wanted to track him down through technology, she was clueless about how to use the hidden clan’s tech because of her lack of proficiency in their language. Unfortunately, she was at a disadvantage.
She sat before her computer, and it was 3.00AM. She wanted to call Crayson, but he would tell her to stay in the mountains and keep up the hunt instead of searching for Matthew. She hated how powerless she felt at that moment, but she could not do anything about it. In the end, she still phoned Crayson. up.
A few beeps later, he took the call. “Veronica? Where are you?” He was surprised that she called. If she was in the mountains, she could not have made any calls. The fact she was calling meant she was no longer there.
“I’m not in the mountains anymore. Matthew is badly hurt, and Eleanor saved him. I need you to find where he is.” She came clean.
Crayson flew into a rage. “What are you doing? Do you know what this festival means? You left the mountains just to save him? Are you mad? Do you have any idea how much time, money, and effort your mother and I spent just to make you champion?’ he roared, which was something he rarely did.
Veronica knew he would get angry, so she calmly replied, “I know. I know the only thing. you care about is the position as head of the clan, but the only thing I care about is Matthew. Find him in twenty-four hours. Once I see him, I’ll head back into the mountains and continue your plan. If you can’t find him, then I’m afraid someone else will be the champion when I return.”
It was both the truth and a threat. There was a secret passage on the mountains she could take where no guards would see her. Since Veronica was not giving Crayson much time, there was only enough for him to weigh his options. A long silence followed before he compromised. “Fine.” He then hung up.
At the same time, Hayley was discussing her plans with the Elrod elders in her villa. She and Crayson had not been sleeping for two days just to talk about the hunting festival. When she heard the call, she knew what was going on. “Veronica got out of the mountains?”
The furious old man slammed his phone on the couch. “She’s useless! Matthew is all she cares about! “She’s married to him, and they have kids together. Of course, she cares about him, but…” She paused and looked at Crayson.
Their eyes met, and he said, “He said Matthew’s hurt, and Eleanor saved him. So, that chopper was there to take him away, I presume. No wonder Eleanor liked to go near him so much. I think she probably knows who he is.”
“Yes.” Hayley nodded. “I’ve realized Eleanor looks at Matthew differently. Now that I think of it, she probably likes him.”
