A shy smile appeared on Lorette’s face. Hazel knew exactly what the reddened cheeks were saying. And also Sisef’s eyes, which shone brightly at Lorette’s cuteness.
Hazel couldn’t help but look away hastily.
Her heart began to pound. She felt horrible, as if she had made a very big mistake. For a very brief moment, the scene passed through her vision.
No one would have seen it. It was only for a short time.
Struggling to calm her heart, Hazel walked over to where her seat was arranged.
‘What’s wrong with him?’
Meanwhile, Achilleon’s eyes that followed her persistently continued. She felt every muscle in her body tense up at the intensity of his gaze, which she couldn’t ignore.
