Chapter 953 Real Friends

Crystal’s POV:

All of a sudden, a thought occurred to Flora. She leaned over and stared at me inquisitively. “You haven’t taken off your mask. Are the rumors true? Was your face really disfigured?”

“No…” I shook my head honestly. Then I looked around and lowered my voice cautiously, “We shouldn’t talk about this here. Where do you live now? Can we go to your place?”

“Don’t worry. Follow me.”

Then Flora and Warren led me to their residence.

As soon as the door was closed behind us, Flora couldn’t wait to pry my mask off. When she was finally certain that my face was fine, she breathed a sigh of relief, and then her eyes slowly welled up with tears.

I was flustered. “Why are you crying?”

Flora turned around and wiped her tears. Like a dutiful husband, Warren immediately handed her a tissue.

Flora took the tissue and blew her nose loudly. Although her appearance and temperament had changed, deep down, she was still the straightforward girl from five years ago.

I couldn’t help but chuckle wistfully. “Don’t cry. It’s been too long since we last saw each other. We should be happy.”

Flora cast a sidelong glance at me and mumbled, “True. I should be happy to finally see someone who disappeared five years ago.”

“Alas, don’t be angry. I know it was wrong of me to ghost you. I swear I won’t do it again.” I reached for her hands and smiled at her fawningly.

Flora snorted and turned her face away from me. Although she still looked bitter, I knew that she had forgiven me.

“Well, don’t just stand there. Have a seat and make yourself at home.” Warren came out to mediate the dispute and proceeded to make us some fresh coffee.

Flora pulled out a chair and made me sit down. She said in a tough but caring tone, “Since you know you were wrong, tell us what you’ve been up to all these years!”

I scratched the back of my head and smiled sheepishly, “Well, as you might’ve already heard, I’ve become the Alpha of the border pack.”

Flora jutted her chin out proudly. “Fortunately, I decided to come with Warren to the parade, or I’d have missed you.”

“The first day I came to the capital, I was wondering if you were here with Warren. I wanted to see you, but I didn’t dare…” I smiled bitterly. After five years of concealing my ident*ity, I was suddenly f0rced to come back to the place I called home. I was instinctively timid, just like a traveler coming to a foreign place.

Flora pinched my cheek and scolded me, “Why? What were you afraid of? Aren’t we best friends? Back in military school, we went through everything together. Are you saying our relationship was in vain?”

“I left in such a hurry that I wasn’t able to explain anything. And as years went by, I just didn’t know how to face you anymore.”

“You don’t have to explain. I would’ve understood. No matter what you do, I’ll always support you. The only thing I ask of you is to not disappear for years on end without updating me. It’ll really piss me off.” As she spoke, Flora’s anger flared up again.

I hurriedly explained, “The situation at the border pack is complicated. For the first few years, I was busy fighting off the vampires at the border. Then I annexed the small nearby packs. Strictly speaking, I’ve been fighting ever since I got there, so I didn’t have time to socialize. When peace had finally come, I wanted to contact you again, but I was afraid that I’d disturb your lives.”

Warren’s eyebrows shot up in surprise. “At first, Flora and I thought the Alpha of the border pack was a man, since his political tactics were comparable to that of Rufus.”

“Well, honestly, Laura and Ethan helped me a lot in secret.” I smiled shamefacedly.

Warren shook his head and handed me the cup of coffee. “Even if they did help you, if it was someone else, the border packs wouldn’t have been reorganized so well in just a few years. At first, I thought the Alpha of the border pack might be Rufus himself, but it makes sense now that I know it was you all along. After all, there aren’t many people that I admire—you are one of them.”
