The queen’s coronation ceremony was fast approaching.
Austin and I began to choose our clothes for the event.
The maids stood in a row and displayed the clothes in front of me.
Every piece of clothes was hand-tailored, using the most exquisite materials in the country.
The thought of everyone marveling at me and my dress got me indescribably excited for the ceremony.
I picked up a red dress and looked at it carefully.
Austin was trying to pick his attire, too.
I was about to ask Austin for advice when one of the attendants came over in a hurry and whispered something in his ear.
Austin nodded as he waved him off.
“Anthony and Jennifer left Rainbow Pack, but we have no idea where they are right now,” Austin said with a frown.
“I suspect that they are planning something.”
My heart skipped a beat when I heard that.
After all, I asked the wizard to wipe Anthony’s memories and I lied to him when I told him that the baby in my womb was his.
I couldn’t help but feel scared and angry at the same time because he was with Jennifer.
“Don’t be afraid, Caroline.I’m here for you.”
Austin smiled to ease my tension and he gave me a pat on the shoulder.
“I’ll take care of them.”
I nodded and continued to pick my dress.
As soon as I decided on my dress, I received a message from Larry.
“I’ve already activated the Love Curse on Anthony.Just wait and see what happens!” it read.
I had no doubt in Larry’s abilities ever since he wiped Anthony’s memories.
I quickly showed the message to Austin as I felt excited.
After reading the message, Austin smiled and nodded his head in approval.
“I’ve looked him up.Larry is a very famous grand wizard.Perhaps, with his help, we can gather more wizards to deal with Anthony together.” Austin thought for a while.
“I’d like to invite Larry to the royal palace and have him work for me.Do you think he will agree?”
I understood what Austin was thinking.
In the long history of conflict between the werewolves and vampires, the wizards had always been neutral.
If we could somehow bring them to our side…
“We can talk to Larry again and give him more money and treasures.Perhaps then he will be willing to work with us.After all, greed is a problem easily solved with money.”
I smiled and winked at him as I spoke.
Austin put his arms around my waist and kissed me as if he was very happy to hear that.
“Good idea! Caroline, you are so smart.Where would I be without you?”
With Caroline’s help, I met with Larry again.
Larry lived in a log cabin, hidden in the depth of the forest.
It was no wonder that no one knew where to find him.
As soon as Caroline and I entered the log cabin, the smell of potions and magical concoctions filled our noses.
Larry didn’t seem surprised by our unannounced visit at all.
“It’s you two again! What’s the matter this time?”
Larry had two glass vials containing multi-colored liquids in his hands.
It seemed as though he was too busy to talk to either of us.
His arrogant attitude annoyed me, but I still smiled at him because I desperately needed his help.
“Larry, we need your help.”
Then, I told him my plan.
I hoped he could help us deal with Anthony.
“If you agree to help us, I will personally let you pick and choose anything you like from the national treasury.”
“That’s right, Larry.Austin will see to it that you get what you need,” Caroline echoed.
Larry finally turned around and looked at us.His grey eyebrows twitched and a smile appeared on his face.
“Since you’re being so generous, I will be happy to serve you.”
After successfully persuading Larry to work for us, I took him back to the royal palace by car.
When we arrived at the palace, I asked Caroline to go back to her room and get some rest.
Before entering the palace, I realized that Larry’s identity had to be kept a secret as he was a famous wizard.
“Larry, I’m afraid you’ll have to hide your real identity for the sake of convenience,” I stopped in my tracks and requested him.
“That won’t be a problem.”
Larry picked up his wand and muttered some magic spell under his breath.
In the blink of an eye, he transformed from a wizard into an ordinary-looking werewolf.
Having seen that, I felt more assured of Larry’s abilities as I realized that he would be of great help to me in defeating Anthony.
I nodded with satisfaction and led him to the royal palace.
When I was about to arrange a place for Larry to stay in, he had an outburst of bloodcurdling curses.
He kept hurling curses at the portraits of the previous kings on the wall.
“I hope you rot in ****! You spineless fiend! *******! I hope they torture you in **** forever!”
With a simple flick of his finger, he created fire with magic and charged at one of the portraits.
I tried to stop him as quickly as I could.
After all, I couldn’t let him act like that in front of so many watchful eyes.
“Larry, calm down.What happened?”
I grabbed his hand and stopped him from burning the portrait of the former king.
Fortunately, I was able to subdue him.
Although wizards were good at casting spells, their physical strength was no match for werewolves.
“**** it! **** it! This *******…”
Larry kept cursing under his breath, but he did not struggle.
A few seconds later, as he finally calmed down, he extinguished the flame.
I kept a calm composure as I let go of him and asked, “Larry, what made you act like that all of a sudden? Why were you so angry?”
When I glanced at the portrait, I recalled the time when Larry asked me about the former king once.
The fact that he wanted to burn the former king’s portrait convinced me of one thing he hated the former king, and consequently his favorite son, Anthony.
“Nothing.I must have made a mistake.”
Larry turned around and walked away as if he didn’t want to say anything more.
I pretended to believe him and even though I didn’t say anything, I knew there was something strange about his behavior.
Just then, an attendant, who was responsible for reporting news, ran to me in a hurry.
I signaled to the attendant to speak frankly as I considered Larry to be a part of my team.
“We’ve received reports that Prince Anthony and his mate has come back to the kingdom, but we still don’t have their specific location as of yet,” the attendant reported respectfully.
I squinted my eyes, falling into deep thought.
The fact that Anthony and his mate hadn’t returned to the palace convinced me that they were plotting something.
Was he plotting against me? I clenched my fists at the thought of his hateful face.
‘‘Anthony, if war is what you want, then war you shall receive.This time, we will fight to the death!”
