That night, I couldn’t fall asleep.I tossed and turned in bed restlessly.
Thinking of what was to come, I felt very uneasy.
Could we actually defeat Larry? He was too powerful.
He might’ve been weakened by the magic drug, but what if that wasn’t enough? What if we still couldn’t defeat him? Such uncertainty made me too anxious to sleep a wink.
The question kept nagging at me: what if tomorrow’s plan failed? Finally, I couldn’t help but reach for my phone on the bedside table to check Larry’s message again.
Although he had said he would meet me tomorrow, I had a gut feeling that things weren’t that simple.
Maybe it was because the last time I met Larry, the way he looked at me was different from before.
There was something in his eyes that frightened me.
Maybe Larry had already seen right through me and figured out our plan.
If that was the case, tomorrow would be disastrous.
But all I had was a gut feeling.
I didn’t have any evidence to prove it, so I tried to tell myself that I was overthinking.
The more I thought about it, the more irritable I became.
I felt that if things went on like this, I would definitely be a hindrance to the plan tomorrow.
So I made up my mind and dialed Morgan’s number.
To my surprise, he answered the phone right after the first ring.
“Hi, honey.Can’t sleep? What’s wrong?”
There was a tinge of nervousness in Morgan’s voice.
“I’m fine! It’s just..”
“I’m so nervous, honey!” I sighed and spoke out my inexplicable worries.
“I can’t help but feel that things are moving too easily.Larry is a cunning wizard.I think he’s figured out that tomorrow’s a trap.What if he doesn’t show up?”
“Oh, honey, you’re thinking too much.King Anthony has set up a trap in the garden.As long as Larry shows up, we’ll catch him and he won’t be able to escape.If he is afraid, then that means he can’t do anything to defeat us, right?” Morgan reassured me gently.
“Don’t worry, Amelia.”
“Thank you, Morgan! I feel a bit better.”
Now that I had calmed down, I bit my lip guiltily.
“I’ll do my best tomorrow.I’m sorry for bothering you so late.”
“It’s no bother, honey.Your business is my business,” Morgan said.
I could almost picture his smiling face through the receiver.
“Okay, rest well, honey.Good night.”
I put the phone down and took a deep breath.
Morgan was right.
We had prepared for this moment for so long.
I didn’t need to worry.I wasn’t alone.I still had Morgan and the others.I was not afraid.
When I finally managed to calm down, I closed my eyes and soon fell asleep.
The next day, I got up early.
After scarfing down breakfast, I called Roy.
“Is everything ready?” I asked anxiously.
“Yes.King Anthony and Queen Jennifer are taking charge on site,” Roy replied confidently.
When I heard this, I rushed to the garden to meet Jennifer and the others.
Sure enough, Jennifer, Anthony, Roy, and other wizards were already there, waiting for me.
Jennifer gestured for me to follow her.
She led me to a very conspicuous spot in the garden and instructed, “Wait here for Larry.When he lets his guard down, seize the opportunity to attack and send us the signal.We will rush to your side and launch a coordinated attack on Larry.”
I looked at her gratefully.
After giving me some more minor instructions, Jennifer and Anthony left the garden with others quietly.
A hush suddenly fell over the entire garden.
I stood in the position designated by Jennifer and waited anxiously for Larry to come.I secretly prayed that God would be on our side and that our plan would be carried out successfully.
Minutes ticked by.
I waited alone in the garden for what seemed like an eternity, but there were no signs of Larry.
My mounting anxiety reached its peak.
Had Larry really seen through our plan and escaped? Just as I was pulling out my phone to call Larry, he finally showed up.
A well-dressed Larry suddenly appeared in front of me.He was wearing a suit and looked more handsome than usual.
“Larry, why were you so late?”
I approached him and asked with a frown.
“Oh, you know about yesterday’s injury.I didn’t feel well today, so I rested first before coming here.”
Larry smiled apologetically.
“Sorry for being late.”
I stole a glance at his face to observe his expression in secret, but I found nothing suspicious.I finally heaved a secret sigh of relief and quickly said, “Oh, I see.It doesn’t matter.I’m just glad that you’re here.For a moment, I thought you didn’t want to come.”
Larry looked at me seriously and asked, “Have you really made up your mind, honey?”
I tried my best to suppress my uneasiness and forced a smile.
“I…I’ve thought it over and I’ve made up my mind.In fact, I’ve already said goodbye to Jennifer.We can leave now.Let’s go someplace nobody knows us and start over.”
“Oh, my God! Are you serious? That’s great, Amelia! I’m so happy!”
Larry practically jumped for joy and threw his arms around me excitedly.
Larry’s sudden embrace made my body stiffen involuntarily, but I managed to calm down quickly.
“Yes.I didn’t want to keep bothering them in the royal palace.”
As I spoke, my mind raced.
When on earth should I launch an attack? Now?
When Amelia said she was willing to go with me, I was so ecstatic that I could barely keep myself together.
Oh, my God! Amelia finally agreed to come with me! But the very next moment, I noticed the look in Amelia’s eyes.
There was a hint of disinterest, and that was all it took for me to realize that she was lying to me.
I felt as though a bucket of ice cold water was poured over my head, draining the life from me.
Amelia was lying to me.
This was a trap.
Whenever I asked her to leave with me before, she was always hesitant.
But this time, she agreed so readily.
Bring it on, Amelia! She could play whatever trick she had.
After all, I was prepared.I had already made a plan for the worst.
Amelia didn’t seem to notice that anything was wrong, and she kept smiling at me.
This made me so angry that I secretly clenched my fists.
Before I came here, I had taken that bottle of forbidden magic medicine.
If Amelia was lying to me, I would destroy the entire palace.
Even as we spoke right now, I could feel that endless power surging through my veins.
The magic power seemed to have integrated into my very blood and bones.
Even if all the werewolves in the palace came out to fight me, I wasn’t scared.
Anyway, even if Amelia wasn’t lying to me, I still planned to end all this today.
“Honey, I love you.I love you so much! I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together!”
Holding Amelia close, I kept gushing over how much I loved her, secretly observing her reaction.
“When are we leaving?” Amelia’s lips parted slightly.
“Oh, we can go right now.”
Smiling, I turned around and started to lead her away from here.I tried to seem as casual as possible, but secretly, I was on high alert.
Unexpectedly, Amelia shook my hand off as soon as I turned around.
“Let me go!”
In the blink of an eye, Amelia whipped out her wand and pointed it at me.
The wand shone brightly and a bright light exploded at its tip.
There was no doubt that this was an attack, and it was aimed at me.
Amelia cast the spell extremely fast.
It was obvious that she had been planning this move for a long time.
If I hadn’t been on high alert, I would’ve been hit badly.
Fortunately, I was prepared and managed to dodge the attack.
But my heart suddenly dropped to my stomach.
Amelia attacked me! Sure enough, everything she had done before this was just a ploy to lure me into a trap.
She wanted me to let my guard down.
D**n it! D**n it all to hell! Amelia’s betrayal angered me beyond belief.
I glared at her murderously and roared, “What is the meaning of this, Amelia? I love you! And this is how you treat me?”
Amelia returned my glare with resentment.
“What do you think it means, Larry? Open your eyes and look around.You’re doomed!”
As Amelia spoke, many figures suddenly emerged from the bushes.
A group of wizards and guards rushed out and surrounded me in the blink of an eye.I sneered.
They actually thought that I had fallen into their trap.
Unfortunately for them, their hopes were about to be dashed.I would let them know who the winner would be.
