An unfamiliar voice woke Hara up from her deep slumber.
Opening her eyes, she saw nothing but darkness and her body was oddly cold and numb.
Furthermore, she felt like she was floating on air.
“W-who are you?”
Hara sat up, but no matter how hard she squinted, she still can’t see through the dark.
It was ridiculous and unlogical.
But, Hara felt that she and that person seems to have some kind of bond.
“I’m a wandering spirit, and I’ve chosen you as my host. Coincidentally, I was also called Hara. You can call me Rara.”
“What if I don’t agree?”
“You can’t. The universe has agreed to let me be a host of your body. I’ve been waiting for centuries to be reborn. I can’t waste any more of my time. I must get my revenge!”
“What about me?” Hara frowned.
“You? You will stay here. But you don’t have to worry. After I wake up, I will surely avenge you for your wrongful death. You can consider this as my payment to you for hosting your body.”
Hara was stunned.
“I... I’m dead?”
Hara touched the back of her head and retracted her hand when she felt something wet on her hand.
She couldn’t see it. But, she could feel, and she could smell.
Now, she could smell the cold blood on her hand. It was as if her blood had dried up after her body was left unbreathing for several hours.
Recalling Arabella’s action, Hara clenched her hands hard as her eyes darken.
“I only had a crush on your boyfriend...and...you kill me?” she scoffed.
Rara snickered, “You poor soul. You’ve truly met a wolf in sheep’s cloth. Fine. Fine. Enough recalling. I want to wake up now.”
“Tch, what else do you want?”
“Please...take care of my parent...”
“Fine...fine! Don’t say this embarrassing thing with me. You and I will share this body, but I’m the one who controls it and you...take care of our memories inside!”
Rara opened her eyes to see a black hoodie man hovering over her.
He’s kissing her forehead!
‘Hara, quick! Slap me!’
<You idiot! Wake up and slap him! Don’t let him harass my body!>
However, Rara was enchanted.
His breath fanned over her.
His scent made her turn into a muddle, and it made her want to stay with him.
What’s more, his soft lips felt so right on her forehead.
All of a sudden, her heart began to race.
Maybe its because he’s wearing an attractive aura around him?
“Ahem!” she cleared her throat.
She didn’t even try to shove him away or shout at him.
His presence made her feel comfortable and secure. She didn’t feel threatened at all.
He didn’t say anything nor showing his face to her. Instead, he storms out of the room in a flash.
Her mouth shaped into an O form in awe—a look of shock is printed on her face.
‘Holy shit! Did you see that? What is he? Is he a vampire?’
<Stop cursing and wake up.>
‘No one can move that past. This hoodie guy’s movements look like a vampire who can move very fast because of their supernatural power.’
‘Is he a supernatural?’
Shrugging her shoulder, Rara sat up and recalled everything about what had happened to Hara in the last few hours.
After recalling it, Rara chuckled bitterly.
‘Say, Hara. Do you know magic?’
<I don’t do magic. I never believed it.>
‘Tch! You’re no fun...’ Rara grumbled.
A knock from the door snapped her out of her mind.
A woman who looks like she was in her 30th walk inside the room.
“How are you feeling?” she asked sweetly.
Rara touched the back of her head, and her eyebrows furrow in confusion.
She recalled that Hara’s head had bumped into the ground.
Wasn’t there supposed to be a bump or hole and blood on her head?
Not satisfied, she hit her left ribs with her hand.
Weird. It doesn’t hurt.
Rara gave the woman a confused stare, wanting an explanation.
“You’re lucky, you know, to have a mate like him.” she looks at Rara with admiration in her eyes.
“What do you mean?”
Rara raised her finger before she could answer, “Wait, how long has it been since I passed out?”
“Only three hours. It’s a good thing that the master found you outside the gate.”
Her eyes widen in shock.
So, the hoodied guy is her saviour, and she hasn’t even thanked him.
‘Hey, people’s outside is really heartless. They could watch murder take place and let go.’
Hara gave her no response.
“He’s the one who heals you,” she said in a low voice.
“H-heal me?” Rara asked in bewilderment.
‘But how is that possible?’
Her mind twirls.
‘How can a person heal a dead person like me?’
‘What’s more shocking is I healed only in 3 freaking hours!’
< Isn’t it supposed to be like this? Wasn’t my body supposed to heal up after being reborn?>
‘No. Usually, a reborn would still have an injury on their body.’
<Maybe, he really was a vampire...>
‘Tch! How is that possible? He only kissed my forehead-’
< That’s my body!>
‘What do you know? Anyway, we don’t know if he had done something else when we’re asleep. ’
<What do you mean?>
‘Perhaps, he had bitten me on the neck and claimed me as his mate...’
<Ew! Ew! Ew! Stop thinking! I could see it! Pervert!>
“Can I go back now?” Rara asked after she snapped out of her daze.
“No one can leave before tomorrow.” sighing heavily, she urged Rara to come to the party.
“What time is it now?”
She looked at her watch “10 minutes before midnight. The dance, quick!”
Then, she helps Rara fix her makeup and put her in a new dress that looks like the previous dress.
Such a shame that the expensive dress given by the stranger had been torn and dirtied.
“You’re pretty and smart. You’re a perfect match for the master.”
Rara coughed at her words.
“So, what’s his name?”
“His name is Xav-okay, done!”
She helps Rara on her feet before she pushed her out the door.
‘What the hell?’
Rara look around and saw the castle gate. After standing in mere silence and darkness, she decided to join the Prince party with her heart throbbing in pain.
Well, it does feel weird to come alone.
The words suck the air out from her lungs.
Biting her lip, she inhaled before gritting her teeth and walk in from the entrance when the guard pushed the door open.
This time, Rara didn’t forget to show them Hara’s invitations card that was still stuck in her little white pouch.
Walking further inside the ballroom, Rara ignored the stares people gave her.
A girl in a blue waitress dress approached her and gave her a glass of red wine.
She nodded slightly and smiled at her before walking away.
Rara walked towards the middle of the huge ballroom and sipped on her wine while looking around.
< I’m curious about the Queen of the day, who must have been chosen by now.>
Rara looks over and saw a shocking scene, the throne in front is empty!
She became worried when a few people keep turning their heads to look at her.
She sipped her wine once more in nervousness, leaving it in half.
However, Rara became more uncomfortable as the room falls silent at once.
Stopping at the middle of the crowd, Rara drank the wine down her throat.
Her eyebrows furrowed when she felt a cold metal touching her lips.
She lowered the glass, and the sound of metal falling back into the glass echoed around the ballroom.
Rara look at the glass in surprise.
‘Holy shit! It’s a ring! The Queen’s ring!’
<My god...you...how can you make trouble the first time you were reborn?!>
‘Don’t ask me! How would I know this creepy ring would choose me! It must be you!’
The crowd gasped and started muttering things to each other, making Rara trembled slightly.
A figure appears in front of her before a large male hand took the ring and slides it to her ring finger.
Rara froze in her place when she saw Prince Archer standing in front of her.
‘My dear ancestor, bless me... ’
