Several days later.
The sky was dark and the clouds were thick.
There were around ten plates made of bamboo lying on the grass beside the camp. There were black bamboo shoots, white caterpillars, animal fur, and other random items, all bathing in the sunlight.
A girl that was around 14 years old in short leather skirt and tight leather armor was picking the bamboo plates up carefully.
The chilling wind was blowing the girl’s long blonde hair, revealing she had a clean and pretty face. There was a thin birthmark on her forehead but it was barely noticeable.
The wind was getting stronger and stronger. The leaves were almost flying on the branches.
“It’s about to rain, hurry up, Fra!” A man’s voice came from the tent behind the girl.
The man was by the entrance of the tent, watching Fra picking up all the plates.
“Another boring day…” the man said and yawned.
The man had long dark-red hair trailing over his shoulders, an average-looking face, and looked lazy. The mustache on his chin looked a bit strange. It was Angele—he rested for a while after Heli and Cynthia left.
Fra turned around and glared at Angele.
“If you’re bored, why don’t you come and help me?”
“You can do that by yourself, right?” Angele lay down and looked at the sky. “Fra, I think your body is growing well.”
Fra blushed after hearing these words; she slowed down a bit.
The short skirt and the leather armor were both tight; she purchased them when she was 13 years old and the clothes were getting too small for her after she turned 14.
The girl’s body was above average for her age—long legs, smooth skin, and slim waist. She almost looked like a well-made doll. Also, her breasts were larger than before and she had cherry-pink lips. Some of Fra’s hair was flying in the air.
The girl was young but she might become a beauty after she grew up. The scene of Fra running around and picking up plates was quite interesting.
Angele was looking at the sky but he would glance at Fra from time to time.
“Your birthmark will be completely removed after you apply the potion I made for you on it several more times,” he advised. “You were born with the birthmark but it can be removed.”
Angele felt happy as he looked at Fra, he felt like that he was treating the girl as his daughter.
Fra was an average-looking girl and her face was covered with freckles. Her skin’s condition got worse after she left the town. The sword technique training helped her build up muscles so she never looked like a cute girl from the city.
However, Angele decided to help Fra as they traveled together. He added the potions he made into Fra’s diet—the potions made her skin smooth and elastic. He would also burn herbal incense during the night to help her body grow.
Fra’s overall condition was improved after several months, she looked just like a girl that was cute and attractive. The only problem was that Angele used too many effective herbs and it seemed like he overdid it a bit.
“Don’t you think you’re much more beautiful than before? I’m the one who helped you.” Angele was proud.
“What does that even mean?” Fra walked to the cart and put the bamboo plates down. “I’ll become a legendary knight one day! A legendary knight’s body is usually covered with scars. There’s no point for me to have nice and clean skin.”
Angele sighed speechlessly. “You should be more polite and gentler when talking. If you can do that, you’ll be perfect.”
He just assumed that Fra wanted a beautiful face and a nice body. He forgot that Fra had always wanted to become a knight.
“I’ve already told you that.” Fra walked to Angele while breathing heavily. The bamboo plates were quite heavy. She put her hands on her waist and said, “I’m going to become a legendary knight!”
“You’ll get married one day, kid…” Angele pursed his lips.
“Get married? I don’t think so.” Fra’s expression turned serious. “Actually, we should get married. I’m your woman already, right? Also, my stomach doesn’t feel well recently, am I pregnant?”
Angele shook his head. “Pregnant? No… We do sleep in the same cart but we don’t even share the same blanket, how do you even get pregnant?” He put his right hand on the forehead. Angele was having trouble explaining everything to her.
“Anyway, you’re the only one that would take care of me right now…” Fra looked a bit depressed. “My mother said that it was not hard to bear a child. She told me that it was just like puking. The child will come out of my mouth, right?” Fra continued.
“What are you talking about…” Angele inhaled deeply and was about to teach Fra some knowledge.
“Huh? The weather vane is pointing in the wrong direction.” Fra suddenly stepped forward and adjusted the bronze weather vane. Angele was lying on the ground so he could easily see what was under her skirt.
“Come on…” Angele was speechless.
‘I’ve lived for so long that I shouldn’t find this young girl sexually attractive…’ The girl’s legs were right above his head.
‘Well, I should probably move…’
Angele turned around and returned into the tent. He was sexually aroused for some reason but he knew that Fra would never become his partner. Fra was a mortal and Angele was a bloodline inheritor, their life expectancy was way too different.
It had been years since the last time he had sex with a woman. Angele put all his efforts into his research; he helped Fra because he was the reason why her family suffered. Although Fra was attractive to him, he always treated her like his daughter.
“That’s a problem…” Angele inhaled deeply, a father should never get sexually aroused because of his daughter. He felt guilty that he had such a feeling.
“Hey, why did you go back to the tent? Our conversation hasn’t finished yet.” Fra’s voice came from outside the tent.
“I don’t want to do anything inappropriate to you,” Angele responded honestly.
“Inappropriate? Well, I can understand. You’re a man and I’m a woman…” Fra entered the tent as well. She moved to Angele and lay down.
“I don’t mind. My mother said that virginity isn’t worth a thing. However, we’ve been sleeping in the same tent for a long time and you never did anything to me.”
Angele still felt speechless after hearing those words.
They suddenly heard thunder rumbling. The first raindrop landed on the tent, it was followed by the second and the third one. The rain got heavy quickly and the noise was extremely loud.
The tent was perfect for two people and the entrance could be sealed. There was a white bed, some clothes, and books in the tent. There was also a small window on the wall; they could see the outside through the window.
Angele sealed the entrance so the rain would not get into the tent. He turned around and saw that Fra already fell asleep. She was sleeping with her legs and arms open, it almost looked like that it was a boy that was sleeping.
He covered Fra with a blanket and it felt like he was taking care of a kid again. Angele enjoyed living with people like Fra. Fra was a simple girl that lost her family… Angele wondered if she would seek revenge in the future. He felt relaxed when Fra was around.
Time passed. The rain was getting heavier and heavier.
Lightning flashed in front of the window and brightened up the dark tent slightly.
Angele noticed that Fra’s eyes opened slowly and she was staring at him. It seemed like she was woken up by the lightning and the thunder.
“Huh?” Angele straightened up his back and stood in front of the window with his legs crossed. He watched the rain pour as the forest was blurred by the raindrops in his sight.
“Why did you save me?” Fra suddenly questioned. She thought a lot during the trip.
“Why did I save you? I’m afraid that I can’t answer this question.” Angele looked out of the window, he thought of Vivian and recalled all the things he did for the wizards.
Fra sat up and looked at Angele.
“I never understood. I asked a girl that was older than me and she taught me a lot. Also, I rethought this whole thing…” She stopped for a second and continued, “Because of me, you can’t find a safe place to live, and you had to stay in this forest. We’re lucky that we didn’t encounter any beast but why are you helping me?” She looked out of the window as well and lowered his voice. “I have nothing to pay you back with. I think you know that.”
“Well, I hired you, right? You work for me and I’ll feed you. It’s a fair trade.” Angele smiled. “Don’t overthink it, kid.”
Angele noticed that Fra hugged him from back before he could finish these words. He could feel the warm body of the girl.
Fra put her head on Angele’s right shoulder.
“I’m not a kid anymore,” Fra responded in a low voice. “I’ve read a lot of novels.”
She moved closer to Angele as she spoke. Her face blushed and it looked like she was about to cry.
“Girl…” Angele turned around and grabbed Fra’s hand.
“You’re young and there’s a bright future in front of you, also…” he suddenly stopped after seeing the tears that were running down Fra’s cheeks.
“I have nothing left… You’re the only one that’s always by my side…” Fra cried. She sounded confused and helpless.
Fra was scared. The man in front of her had a mysterious background. She thought the man was just a boss of a pawnshop in the town, however, after they traveled together for a while, she realized that the situation was more complicated than she’d thought.
Also, how Angele healed Heli and Cynthia seemed impossible to her. She thought only the God had the ability to heal wounds like that. Fra finally realized that she never knew what the lazy boss was capable of.
She had this strange feeling that Angele was right in front of her but he was from a completely different world.
Fra would wake up at midnight from time to time due to the nightmares that were bothering her. She was desperate and depressed in the endless darkness of the night.
She was scared that Angele would leave without her knowing one night. She was scared that she would no longer be able to find Angele after she woke up at midnight.
“Alright, don’t worry…” Angele hugged Fra and rubbed her hair.
“I’m right beside you…”
He looked at Fra’s face. The girl was still a kid, however, Fra reminded him of the two other children he had taken care of.
Fra fell asleep in Angele’s arms after she got tired.
Angele started thinking as he looked at the heavy rain outside the window.
