Fated to the Cursed Lycan Prince by Dark Knight

Chapter 997 Looking Into It

Rufus’ POV:

Crystal ran away as fast as she could, Arron in tow. She wasn’t as calm and cunning as she used to be before, when she was trying to get rid of me. On the contrary, she looked quite scared and helpless without the mask. I highly doubted she’d have reacted like this if wearing a mask was just her “hobby”. She wasn’t a weak woman, and she should’ve been able to fight back, but she didn’t. I watched the she-wolf’s receding figure in the distance. Instead of chasing after her, I asked everyone to leave and sat alone in the lounge, lost in thought.

Crystal’s face still lingered in my mind. It was the first time I’d seen her real face, and I couldn’t seem to shake off the weird feeling gnawing at me inside. I leaned against the backrest of the sofa and closed my eyes tiredly. Although the room was quiet, my mind was buzzing.

Her voice, her face, and the angry look in her eyes when I took off her mask… It all kept replaying in my mind.

Crystal was undoubtedly a scheming woman who breathed. She kept so many secrets. Now, I had only revealed the most superficial layer. I still needed to find out her motives and intentions.

I simply couldn’t understand why she hid her pretty face under a cold mask. And why did she seem so afraid that I would approach Arron?

She had allowed me to get close to Beryl, but why did she want me to stay away from her other child? Was she scared that I’d see the boy’s face?

At this time, a subordinate came in and reported his findings regarding Crystal. I had sent someone to secretly go to the border pack to investigate her a long time ago.

But there was very little to report. The only information we had about Crystal started from the time after she became the Alpha. Before that, people only knew that she was Leonard’s distant relative. There was nothing suspicious about her ident*ity.

“Was Crystal married previously?” I asked coldly.

The subordinate shook his head. “There’s no record about it. I only managed to find out that she was heavily pregnant when she took office. And there’s no information on the father of the two children. It seems that any trace of him has been wiped out.”

Which meant that she had gotten pregnant before getting married to that bad man.

I felt a little upset. I thought that the she-wolf was very stupid to have been betrayed. Fortunately, her children had grown up to be cute and lovely.

“Does she wear a mask at the border pack?” I asked. The subordinate shook his head again. “No.”

So she fabricated the lie specifically for me.

There was something fishy about the whole thing… “Alpha Crystal has a good reputation in the border pack. The locals all look up to her and love her very much,” the subordinate added.

This didn’t come as a surprise to me. I had heard some things about Crystal from other packs before she came to the imperial capital. She was known to be a competent Alpha.

I took a deep breath and had mixed feelings about this. I didn’t know what to do with her.

Every time our paths crossed, something unexpected would happen.

“Your Majesty, do you want us to continue the investigation? If we want to know more about her, we might have to try something else. Maybe we can start from late Alpha Leonard,” the subordinate said.

I kept silent for a long time. When I looked up at the monitor in the corner, a thought occurred to me. “Go and get pictures of Crystal from the footage then send someone to search for any relevant information on the Internet.”

“Yes, Your Majesty.”
