Fated to the Cursed Lycan Prince by Dark Knight

Chapter 966 Punishment

Crystal’s POV:

I was so angry. These maids needed to be taught a lesson. Their words would only hurt Beryl if she heard them.

Hearing my approach, the two maids turned around anxiously, but they soon calmed down when they saw it was only me. They exchanged tacit glances, pretending that nothing had happened.

“Say that again, I dare you!” I hissed.

The brown-haired maid stammered, “It… It’s the king’s family’s affair. It has nothing to do with you.” She had a pretty face, and she was the one who spoke harshly of Beryl. Judging from the color of her uniform, her rank among the maids was pretty low.

I couldn’t hold back my anger anymore. I raised my hand and slapped her across the face. “You’re only a maid. How dare you be so arrogant and even speak ill of a child? Know your place.”

“I… I’m not wrong! Beryl’s not the king’s daughter, and she does nothing but make trouble every day. It’s really annoying! But who are you? Why’re you so worked up?” The brown-haired maid cupped her swollen cheek and glared at me. Despite being a maid, she had no manners, unlike Maya.

I was so angry that I almost blurted out that I was Beryl’s mother, but I instinctively held back. Doing so would only spark more rumors.

At this moment, a guard’s voice sounded, announcing the king’s presence.

Shocked, I turned and found that Rufus was standing on the bridge five meters away. Seeing his gloomy face, I guessed that he must’ve witnessed what had happened just now.

The two maids were so scared that they fell to their knees and begged for mercy.

Rufus walked over slowly with an unfathomable look in his eyes. It felt as though a terrible storm was approaching. The atmosphere dropped several hundred degrees, and his attendants all lowered their heads in fear.

“What’re you doing here? Where’s Beryl?” I asked in a low voice.

Rufus cast me a sidelong glance and ignored my questions. He just asked his attendants to summon all the maids on duty in his palace.

Soon, more than 30 maids were lined up according to rank in the garden.

Then Rufus instructed the line of maids to slap the two maids’ mouths. The two maids kneeling on the ground shrank back, but they didn’t dare to say anything. One false move and they could be beaten to death.

The air rang with the sounds of slaps, one after another. The two maids’ cheeks were swollen and bruised, their mouths bleeding. But neither dared to scream in pain.

Rufus watched coldly, as though they were nothing but two struggling ants.

When the two maids were dragged away, they were already unconscious. It would take a long time for them to recover. Good. No matter who they were, they had to take responsibility for their words. Rufus didn’t have them executed, which was already lenient. Moreover, Rufus was helping Beryl build prestige now, making sure that no one would dare to look down upon Beryl ever again.

Looking at Rufus’ broad back, I felt mixed feelings. Rufus used to protect me like this.

Now, even though he didn’t know that Beryl was his daughter, he still protected her without hesitation. I suppose it was true that blood ran thicker than water.

I had thought that Rufus would make a good father. Now, he had proved me right.
