Anthony’s POV: We searched Larry’s house and rummaged through all of his belongings, but we didn’t find anything that could lead us to him I was at my wits’ end when suddenly, I heard a voice. I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard the voice at first. I didn’t think that there was someone else in the house. “Excuse me, are you Larry, the grand wizard? Please show yourself.We only here to talk,” I said immediately. “I’m sorry, but I’m not Larry.I’m an old friend of his.Unfortunately, even I haven’t seen him for a long time.Why are you looking for him?” the voice answered quickly.
I was caught by surprise when I realized that the voice belonged to a female. Frankly, I was a little disappointed because I was really hoping to find Larry. However, I soon realized that it was better to have run into someone that knew Larry instead of going back empty-handed. After all, perhaps this woman could help us find Larry. “Can we speak face to face? It’s important that I have a word with Larry as soon as possible.” I raised my voice to imply urgency. There was no response. For a moment, there was pin-drop silence in the house and I couldn’t help but fear the worst. “All right.Go straight to the window and open the small door across it.Then you can see me,” the voice finally responded, much to my relief. Jennifer and I exchanged glances before we walked forward cautiously. Lo and behold, there actually was a small door opposite the window. Clenching my fists with some apprehension, we pushed the small door open.
The moment we saw what was behind the small door, Jennifer and I were stunned. It was an empty bare room with a single bed inside. Tied to the bedpost was a middle-aged woman who still looked charming, considering present circumstances. Her eyes looked weary and sleep- deprived, but she liked very pretty for someone of her age. I couldn’t find the words to respond with because I wasn’t expecting to see any of this when I came here looking for Larry. “Hello, my name is Amelia.I am Larry’s lover.I haven’t seen the outside world in decades after he imprisoned me here.” Amelia’s voice was hoarse and weak and she looked up at me beseechingly. “Please, help me get out of here before Larry gets back!” I agreed to her request without hesitation.Amelia’s pale face and dried lips told me that she was in distress. “I haven’t eaten anything for days.I don’t know where Larry is.” Amelia looked at me sincerely. “If Larry hadn’t given me some magic medicine a few days ago, I would have been dead already.”
I tried to untie the rope around her body, but as soon as I touched the rope, a sharp pain seared through my fingers and I drew my hand back almost immediately. “You can’t untie it with your bare hands.Larry has enchanted this rope with black magic,” Amelia explained immediately. “Let me have a try, Mr.Jones.” Roy came over and took out his magic wand. Amelia’s POV: I never thought I’d see another living soul in Larry’s house in this lifetime.I thought that I was going to spend the rest of my life locked up within these four walls. As such, my heart lit up with hope anew the moment I saw a group of strangers in the house. I couldn’t believe that I was finally going to get out of here.I could help but shed tears of joy and excitement at the thought of finally breaking out of this prison. After all, Larry had imprisoned me here for decades. In fact, I regretted nothing more in my life than meeting him in the first place. Many years ago, when I was a powerful witch, Larry and I fell in love with each other. However, as his father didn’t want us to be together, I was forced to break up with Larry in the end. When our relationship ended, I told myself that perhaps we were not meant to be together. However, a few years later, after I got married to another wizard, Larry came back into my life. He told me that his father had passed away, so no one could stop us from being together anymore, but I couldn’t help but laugh at his ridiculous proposition. After all, so much time had passed and I was already having a baby with someone I was in love with.
How could I drop everything and start over with Larry? Unfortunately, Larry wouldn’t take no for an answer. He used black magic to weaken me before he killed the baby in my belly. I was so distraught after that, I didn’t have the heart to fight back.I gave up and allowed him to keep me imprisoned here ever since. Larry used magic to keep his log cabin hidden in the dense forest so that no one could find me. Up until today, I thought that I was going to die in this wretched place alone. My love for Larry turned into poisonous hatred over the years. I had spent countless nights dreaming of strangling him with my own hands, but after a while, I stopped caring about revenge and all I wanted was to get out of this damned place. “It’s nice to meet you, ma’am.My name is Roy.I’m also a wizard.” While I was lost in thought, a seemingly friendly wizard walked up to me and snapped me out of my reverie. He pointed at the young couple who were the first to talk to me and said, “This is Mr.Jones, the prince of the Osman Kingdom, and by his side is his mate, Jennifer.They are here to look for a way to remove the Love Curse Larry cast upon Mr.Jones.” “Love Curse?” I fell into deep contemplation. “I seem to have heard of this curse.I remember seeing Larry read about the Love Curse from a magic book.If you let me out, I can help you look for it.” ”
Really? Thank you so much, Amelia!” Jennifer’s eyes lit up and she bowed her head to show her gratitude to me.What a lovely girl! “Please step back, everyone.Allow me to remove the black magic that has restrained Amelia.” Jennifer and the lycan prince immediately left the room as soon as Roy raised his wand. I stared at Roy anxiously, hoping that would succeed in breaking me free from Larry’s curse. Roy cast several spells in succession, but none of them worked. I was starting to lose hope, but on the fifth time, I suddenly felt the rope around my body loosen. With another stroke of his wand, he was able to untie the enchanted rope that had imprisoned me. Roy had succeeded. I got up from the bed, trembling in disbelief. I couldn’t help but wonder if all of this was real. I touched my face again for the first time in decades as I wiped the tears from my eyes.I was free! I was finally free! “I’m so happy for you, Amelia,” Jennifer said to me with a smile.
“Thank you for saving me.I really don’t know how to thank you.” I nodded my head repeatedly at Roy. “You’re welcome.The pleasure is all mine.” Roy helped me up. “Amelia, will you help us find Larry’s magic book that records the Love Curse?” I agreed without hesitation. After all, it was the least I could do to repay their kindness. I stopped to think for a moment before I walked out.I recalled that Larry kept all the important magic books in his secret room. Apart from me, no one else could ever find the door to his secret room. I walked to the window and touched a brick on the wall. Suddenly, a door appeared on my left. As soon as I stepped into the secret room, I came across a magic book with a red cover sitting on the desk.
