Fated to the Cursed Lycan Prince by Dark Knight

Chapter 835 I Am The Mastermind

Sylvia’s POV:

Rufus went to investigate the case, and I went back to his palace. I stayed in my room the whole time and didn’t plan on going anywhere.

Everyone in the imperial palace was worried about Ethan’s condition after the accident. It wasn’t the right time for me to do anything reckless except for waiting patiently for Rufus to come back.

Still, I felt very uneasy as I lay on the rocking chair and recalled what Joanna told me. I couldn’t help but feel like I had missed something.

Just then, I heard a knock on the door. It was Maya, and she came to bring me some food.

I touched my stomach, realizing that I hadn’t eaten anything for almost an entire day. I was really hungry.

I stood up and sat at the table, wanting to see what Maya made for me. However, I didn’t expect her to give me shaved ice. It was my favorite gr@pe flavor, but the weather was getting cold, and I didn’t want to eat something cold in a chilly weather.

However, if I didn’t eat this, Maya would be sad. Thus, I ate a spoonful of ice with gr@pe jam although I didn’t really feel like eating it.

“Is there anything savory?” I asked as I looked at the tray. The food that Maya brought me was either sweet or icy. I was hungry and wanted to eat something warm and salty, like noodle soup.

“Dinner is almost ready, Miss Todd, please make do with these first.” Maya smiled as she considerately cut the Matcha cake into small slices.

The cake was big enough for at least four people to eat. I didn’t want to waste it, so I warmly invited Maya to sit down and enjoy the cake with me.

“Thank you, Miss Todd,” Maya flashed me a bright smile and ate the cake.

I was also very happy. She had rarely talked to me since our last conversation.

“Where have you been, Miss Todd? You look so tired today,” Maya curiously asked.

I sighed and told her that I went to see Joanna. After all, everyone already knew that she had a*s*sa*s*sinated the lycan king.

“No one expected that John was actually a woman! I was really surprised when they told me. Didn’t Mr. Myers notice it?” Maya asked. I couldn’t blame her, though. There was no way anyone would be able to turn a blind eye to what happened in the palace.

I answered her questions before I asked her about the recent situation of the palace. “Have you noticed anyone suspicious these days? Especially the people around the King and Queen.”

“Someone suspicious? Why do you ask, Miss Todd? Hadn’t the murderer already been caught? Did she have an accomplice?” Maya gave me a bewildered look. It didn’t seem like she was in the mood to eat cake anymore.

I flashed her a small smile and comforted her. “Don’t be afraid. I was just asking. The palace isn’t as safe as before, so you should be more careful as well.”

Maya nodded in response. “I see. I’ll keep an eye on other people in the palace. If there’s anything suspicious, I’ll report to you immediately.”


After our brief conversation, Maya went back to work, and I lay on my bed to rest.

When it was time for dinner, Rufus came back. He had a serious look on his face.

I put down the silverware I was holding and walked up to him. “How is it going? Did you find anything? Is the real murderer hiding among us?”

Rufus’ face darkened. He probably found out something. “I checked the recent actions and itinerary of the people around my parents, and I found two cooks that were behaving strangely. I interrogated them, and they told me that the person who was ordering them to poison the king was…”

He paused for a moment, almost as if he was unwilling to continue what he was about to say.

My eyes widened in realization. “Did they tell you that I’m the mastermind?”

Rufus slowly nodded.
