It was already late at night, but at the inner palace, one of the chamber was illuminated by the light from the inside. It seems like the person inside were not planning to hit the bed soon.

Eithne was sitting beside the table, fiddling with the piece of paper in front of her. It was unknown what she was thinking based on her expressions. After a long time, she let out a small sigh as she threw her head back, her eyes looking up at the plain ceiling above.

"Ethan..." she muttered the name softly as the image of the man with his sincere smiles became to form in her mind.

The first time she saw him, she could tell that he was no simple man. He introduced himself as a merchant, but the n.o.ble aura exuded from him was unmistakable in front of her discerning eyes.

He was a fine, good-looking man, a handsome build, and a head taller than her. Eithne never knew that she would be so interested in a man's body until she met him.
