A truck was driving down the stretch of the road illuminated by streetlamps. Once again, Albert and his crew set off on their journey.
The crown prince looked in the rear-view mirror and met Freya’s gaze. Noticing her intent to murder, the crown prince turned away in fear.
“Matty…” He tugged on Albert’s shirt and cocked his eyebrow at Freya.
“I know, I know… She’s Freya Green-Heath Solis’ student and an acquaintance of mine.”
‘Solis’ student?’ Even Salazar was shocked, and he almost lost control of the steering wheel.
‘Well… That explains her attitude…’
Albert was reminded of the problem at hand. “How did you find out where we were?”
‘Hmm… I need to know, or we might have more trouble on the way…’
“Raven told me I would run into you if I just waited at the rest station. I don’t know how he found out where you’re heading.”
‘Raven? I see… So, Heath has his eyes on me as well.’
“Why did you come all the way here?” Albert had to know the answer.
‘Whether we have to face Heath or not depends on this…’
“The meds you made worked well, so I want to bring back a bit more for Raven.”
Albert heaved a sigh of relief.
‘Ok… As long as she’s not here to fight us. So, Raven and his men aren’t coming after us then. They’re only going to keep an eye on us…’
Albert was sure about that because Freya was an honest woman. She would never lie to anyone, nor was she a scheming person. If anything needed to be settled, it could be settled with a fight. At least that was what she thought.
To put it nicely, she was naive to a fault, but if one were to be blunt, she was arrogant.
“Sorry. We set off in a hurry, so I don’t have anything on me. I can gather the ingredients and make a batch once we get to Bainbridge. Then I can deliver them to you.” Albert offered her the meds in hopes that she would leave and never get involved in this mess.
The enemies had found him, and the road ahead would be rocky. Even with Levi’s help and his authority, they couldn’t stop everyone.
The first part of the journey was smooth enough, but the closer they got to Bainbridge. the higher the chances the enemy would attack. They were all desperate for the Reconstruction Pill’s recipe. The most powerful enemies who had only been observing all this while would also start to attack at this juncture.
Albert was reluctant to implicate Freya.
However, Freya refused. “It’s alright. I have a lot of stuff to do, and l have to settle them right away. Just make the meds as soon as possible, once you get to Bainbridge. I need to go back after I get the meds.”
She might sound impatient, but Albert was touched.
‘She’s going to escort us all the way to Bainbridge. Raven must have told her about the dangers we will face, and yet she came anyway…’
Albert turned around and nodded at her, “Thank you, Miss Green…”
Freya said nothing, but a smile curled her lips.
The truck cruised along the highway. With his great stamina, Salazar could still take the long drive. Albert and the crown prince, however, were dozing off.
Freya was in the backseat, cross-legged and her blade in her lap. She was resting with her eyes closed.
