Outcast: The Alpha King’s Beloved Chapter 221

Jennifer’s POV:

When I heard that Helen and Daniel were going to get married in a matter of days, I was happy for them, but sad that Anthony and I wouldn’t be able to attend.

Unfortunately, we needed to go to the snow mountain a journey that could take days, maybe even weeks.

“Anthony, Daniel and Helen are getting married next Tuesday,” I told Anthony.

“It’s a pity we probably won’t make it to their wedding.”

“Oh, wow.I’ll be sure to ask my attendant to send them a wedding gift.”

Anthony walked over and patted me on the shoulder.

“You are so thoughtful, Anthony.”

Thankful, I slipped my hand into his and gave him a bright smile.

“Well, let’s not stay up late.We’re going to the snow mountain tomorrow, after all.We’ll need all the energy we can get.”

As he spoke, Anthony led me to lie in the bed.I nodded obediently, snuggling up against him.

But just as I was about to turn off the lights, my phone started to ring.

Glancing at the caller ID, I found that it was Skylar calling.

“Hey, honey.I heard from Jerome that you’re leaving for the snow mountain tomorrow.”

Skylar’s voice was always so warm.

“Yes, we’ll be leaving in the morning,” I answered with a smile.

It was nice to hear Skylar’s familiar, soft voice.

“How can I help, Jennifer? The snow mountain is treacherous.Please be careful, okay?” Skylar offered with concern.

My expression softened.Skylar’s concern moved me.

“Thanks, Skylar.Don’t worry, we’ll be careful.Anthony and I packed some potion that will help us endure the biting cold.I’m sure we can handle whatever comes our way.”

I tried my best to speak in a relaxed tone.

“We’ll visit once we get back.Anthony’s Love Curse will be removed by then.”

“Okay, I look forward to it!” Skylar chuckled.

“By the way, Skylar, you are a Luna now, so all eyes will be on you.Never let anyone else find out about your special powers, or things might go wrong.”

I, too, was worried about her, so I felt the need to warn her.

“Okay, I won’t.It’s getting late, so I won’t take up any more of your time.Get some rest, okay? Good night, Jennifer!” Skylar said.

“Good night, Skylar.”

Then, I hung up the phone.

“Anthony, Jennifer, open the door!”

Suddenly, Elizabeth’s voice sounded from outside the door.

Before I could even sit up, Anthony had already gotten out of bed and went to open the door.

“Mrs.Jones, good evening,”

I greeted politely upon following Anthony to receive her.

“What brings you here?”

“I just wanted to give you two a little something for your trip tomorrow.I’ve prepared some thermal clothes and emergency food for you.”

Elizabeth hugged Anthony tightly and gestured for the maid to give the backpack of supplies to Anthony.

“I felt restless at the thought of you leaving for the snow mountain and tried to help in the small way that I could.”

Deeply touched by Elizabeth’s sentiment, I felt a lump in my throat.

While Anthony and I had already packed thermal clothes and food, we gratefully accepted Elizabeth’s gift and set it aside with the rest of our luggage.

“Thank you, Mom.Don’t worry.We will be careful.”

Then, Anthony gently put his hand on Elizabeth’s shoulder.

“It’s late now.You should get some rest.Please don’t tire yourself out.”

“Thanks again, Mrs.Jones.Anthony and I will be fine.Good night.”

Smiling warmly, I reached for her hand to give it a reassuring squeeze.

“Good girl, I’ll see you off tomorrow.”

Elizabeth smiled back at us and waved before leaving with the help of the maid.

When it was just Anthony and I left in our room, we exchanged glances and smiled.

Then, we both headed back to bed, turned off the lights, and went to sleep.

The following day, Anthony and I got up at the crack of dawn.

After freshening up, we gathered all of our things and headed to the tarmac outside the royal palace.

We were to take Anthony’s private plane to the northern border of Osman Kingdom.

To our pleasant surprise, Elizabeth was already at the tarmac, waiting for us.

As soon as we drew near, she threw her arms around us and burst into tears.

“I can’t believe you’re really leaving.If it was up to me, I wouldn’t have wanted you two to go on such a dangerous journey.”

Elizabeth sobbed uncontrollably into Anthony’s arms.

“Don’t worry, Mom.Everything’s going to be fine.”

Anthony gently patted her back to comfort her.

“Thank you for taking on the responsibility of running the kingdom in my absence.But don’t let your guard down around Austin, okay?”

“Of course, my son.I’ll keep an eye on him.Good luck on your journey.Take care of each other!”

Albeit reluctant, Elizabeth finally let go of Anthony and waved goodbye.

The time for us to part had finally come.

Before boarding the plane, Anthony and I glanced back down at Elizabeth and waved one last time.

Minutes later, the plane took off and soared through the sky, steadily bringing us closer to the snow mountain.When we disembarked, Anthony and I gathered our luggage, ready as ever to climb the treacherous mountain.

I looked at the white, snow-laden mountain in the distance.

From afar, it looked almost picturesque.

The sun hit the snow, creating a dazzling glow of ethereal beauty.

But I knew that beyond its beautiful appearance was an unforgiving cold that could take our lives at any time.

“I asked the pilot to wait for us here.Are you ready, Jennifer?” Anthony reached out his hand to me.

“As ready as I’ll ever be.” I grinned and took his hand.

His smile was as calming as a tranquil lake, dispelling all the worries in my heart.

Hand in hand, we set off towards the mountain with unrelenting determination.

We passed through several villages and inquired about the journey before we finally reached the foot of the mountain.

Anthony’s POV:

Carrying all our luggage on our backs, Jennifer and I made our way to the legendary snow mountain—the home of the Tear of Edith.

We stood at the foot of the mountain and looked up at its sharp peak.

‘It’s a long way to the top” I thought with a heavy heart.

“Jennifer, the journey ahead will be more than difficult.I’m sorry you have to suffer with me.”

I sighed, glancing at Jennifer guiltily.

“I’m more than happy to be here with you.Anthony, did you bring enough pain suppressing medicine?”

Jennifer looked at me with concern.

“Don’t worry.Roy gave me a lot of medicine, enough for the journey.”

As I spoke, I took Jennifer’s hand and started to trudge forward.

A lush forest stood in between us and the foot of the mountain.

As we made our way through the forest, the temperature began to drop rapidly.

We hadn’t even made it to the mountain before Jennifer and I both started putting on more layers of clothing.

“Hey, what are you doing here? This is not a tourist spot!”

We turned towards the sound of the voice, only to find a middle-aged, dark-skinned werewolf waving at us urgently.

“We’re here to climb the mountain,”

Jennifer shouted back at him.

A look of horror spread across his face.

“Oh, my ***! Don’t even think about it! I have lived at the foot of the snow mountain for many years.I have seen countless mountain climbers attempt to conquer it, but no one has come back alive! Please, don’t risk your lives over something so _ foolish!”

the werewolf shouted anxiously.

“Thank you for your concern, but there’s something important on the mountain that we need to find.We will be careful,” I answered loudly.

The werewolf seemed to ponder a moment, before finally shaking his head.

“Wait right there.I have a map of the mountain.Maybe it will be useful for you.”

The werewolf made his way over, fished out a piece of parchment paper from his pocket, and handed it to me.

“Thank you very much!”

Pleasantly surprised, Jennifer quickly took the map from me to study it.

“We won’t forget your kindness.”

After thanking the kind-hearted werewolf, we parted ways and continued to walk forward.

The whole forest was deeper than we had imagined.

It took the entire afternoon before the trees gave way to a flat grassland.

We had finally made it to the foot of the snow mountain.

Jennifer and I stood on the grass in a daze, admiring the beauty of the snow mountain.

“At least the scenery here is breathtaking,” Jennifer said lightly.

I knew she just didn’t want me to worry about her.

“It’s getting late.Let’s set up camp here for the night, honey.”

I gently stroked Jennifer’s cold hands.

She nodded.

Together, we set up the tent and snacked on some biscuits before finally settling down in each other’s arms.

When I was sure that Jennifer was asleep, I heaved a sigh of relief.

Reaching up to touch my chest, I winced in pain.

I hurriedly took the medicine Roy had given me.

As the pain subsided, I gradually fell asleep.

The Love Curse attacked more and more frequently these days.

I needed to find the divine flower as soon as possible.
