Chapter 987 The First Dance

Crystal’s POV:

All the ladies had been waiting for this moment for a long time. Some even had the balls to come forward and recommend themselves. They all came from noble families and were outstandingly beautiful. Naturally, they all wanted to take this opportunity to become the lycan king’s queen.

I was sensible enough to step back, so that I give Rufus space to be with these compet*itive ladies.

Rufus’ handsome face remained expressionless even as these gorgeous ladies fawned over him one by one. His eyes swept around the room until they landed on me.

All of a sudden, I broke into a cold sweat. I tried my best to blend in the shadows so that no one would notice me. But because Rufus’ gaze was fixed on me, I couldn’t escape the curious eyes of the others.

At this moment, I suddenly wanted to dig a hole in the ground and hide.

But it was too late. Rufus was walking towards me slowly.

I had a bad feeling about this. Everyone’s eyes were fixed on me. They watched as Rufus stopped in front of me and asked me to dance.

As soon as he popped the question, the crowd burst into an uproar.

“Isn’t she the Alpha from the border pack? Can an Alpha participate in the selection?”

“Of course, they can! But I heard that this Alpha already had a mate and was dumped.”

“Yeah! Doesn’t she have kids already? More importantly, isn’t her face disfigured? Why’d the king want to choose her?”

“Don’t worry. This is just the first dance. Maybe King Rufus just wants to be nice to her since the border pack has contributed a lot to the empire.”

“Let’s wait and see. The ball has just begun! Who knows what’ll happen?”

Although everyone spoke in hushed whispers, because the lycan king was present, nobody dared to say anything too harsh.

I was so nervous. Why was Rufus doing this? There were so many beautiful and capable young ladies here. Why did he choose me? Looking at the faint smile in his eyes, I suspected that he was doing this on purpose.

“This is not right,” I whispered.

Rufus frowned. “Are you rejecting my invitation?”

Refusing the lycan king’s invitation to the first dance was disrespectful and punishable even.

My heart tightened in my chest. “I didn’t mean that.”

Rufus took my hand and practically dragged me to the center of the dance floor.

At this time, the melodious music began. The crowd of ladies had no choice but to clear the stage for Rufus and me.

“Can you dance? Don’t be a drag,” Rufus whispered in my ear, which made my heart skip a beat.

My ears had always been sensitive, and I couldn’t bear any external stimulation. Of course, since Rufus had lost his memory, he had forgotten about this. Every time he whispered in my ears before, I’d get goose bumps. I was so flustered that I inadvertently stepped on his foot.

Rufus snorted and tightened his grip around my waist. “It’s okay if you can’t dance. I promise I won’t laugh.”

My compet*itiveness was immediately evoked. I raised my head and locked eyes with him firmly. “Of course, I can dance. Let’s see who’ll drag us down.”

I took his hand decisively and twirled. Rufus instinctively put his hands around my back and I did a dip.

In order to keep balance, I clung to him tightly. The temperature of my body gradually rose, and my palms broke out in sweat.

“You seem very nervous,” Rufus whispered. His lips were slightly parted, beckoning at me to kiss them.

The desire to get close to him overwhelmed me. It was something I hadn’t felt in a very long time. I looked away and pretended to be aloof. “I’m just worried you’ll step on me.”
