Fated to the Cursed Lycan Prince by Dark Knight

Chapter 986 Former Mate

Crystal’s POV:

The guests all grew excited and broke into hushed whispers. More and more people gathered on the dance floor.

Arron ran away as soon as the lights dimmed. I breathed a sigh of relief.

When the spotlights lit up the stage, Laura, dressed in a gorgeous dress, strode onstage gracefully. She looked more elegant and demurer than she had been at a ball I’d attended many years ago. She no longer looked so domineering, but she had a calm air about her after experiencing so much hardship.

While Laura was talking, Rufus suddenly approached me and whispered in a low voice, “Your earring is stuck in your hair.”

His breath tickled my ear, but I willed myself to focus. I quickly touched my hair and found that my earring was really stuck there.

I turned around awkwardly and tried to take off the earring, but I couldn’t get it off.

“Here. Let me help you.” Rufus reached out and gently adjusted the earring for me.

“Er, thanks.” As soon as he was done, I stepped away from him cautiously, not daring to meet his gaze.

Rufus chuckled. “Don’t worry. Your kids are safe here.”

His voice was very low and only I could hear it, but I still felt chills. Although I had already stepped aside, I still felt that he was too close, which made my heart beat uncontrollably.

The people around were listening carefully to Laura, who was onstage. Only Rufus and I were standing in the corner, whispering, which made me feel extremely nervous and even a little excited.

I swallowed my messy emotions and feigned calmness. “Arron was curious about the ball, so he snuck in without telling me.”

“There was no need to sneak in. You should just bring him with you. He’s welcome here,” Rufus replied casually.

I stole a glance at him, but he quickly caught it and we locked eyes for a moment. “Is something the matter?” “No, it’s nothing. Just a mosquito,” I said quickly. I averted my gaze. For some reason, I felt guilty in front of Rufus.

Rufus snorted and teased, “It’s winter now. Don’t mosquitoes hibernate?”

“Oh, then it must’ve been a fly.” I could never admit defeat in front of this man, even before he had lost his memory.

Rufus smiled and said nothing more.

I clenched and unclenched my fists anxiously. Finally, I decided to continue the previous topic. “I didn’t want to attend the ball, so Arron wasn’t supposed to be here. Arron has always been a good boy. I don’t know why he suddenly decided to come here without telling me.”

After saying that, I looked at Rufus again. But this time, I looked at him without trying to hide it. Rufus fell silent after hearing what I said. He looked down and seemed to be thinking about something.

Although his expression hadn’t changed, we used to be intimate mates. I immediately sensed that he was a little unhappy.

Otherwise, he would’ve replied. My mind started to race. I didn’t say anything wrong, did I? Why was Rufus suddenly unhappy?

I tinkered with the hem of my dress, wondering if I should say something to cheer him up.

But then, Laura finished her opening speech and asked Rufus to choose a she-wolf for the first dance.

As the spotlight shifted to Rufus, I stepped away from him quickly, worried that I’d get involved.

Rufus cast a sidelong glance at me. His face was expressionless, but for some reason, I felt a shiver run down my spine.
