Alice hastily turned around. She was surprised to find that she was feeling so anxious and shy in the presence of a stranger. It was not her usual behavior.
She was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. In addition, she was the epitome of beauty, and countless outstanding men had obsessed over her since she was young.
Still, she had never felt as anxious in the presence of any man as she was at that moment.
She was only in the presence of a stranger from Rheasia, yet she was so anxious and shy, which was truly unusual for her.
She did not think that she would fall for the Rheasian next to her at first sight. She thought it was just because she was mentally exhausted after hiding from her family’s bodyguards for so long.
She assured herself that had to be the case.
Even as she explained her feelings away to herself, she could not keep glancing at Mozart.
She could feel the ineffable quality to Mozart that made her want to get close to him. She had never encountered another man who could make her feel that way.
What an intriguing Rheasian.
Although Mozart was reading the newspaper, he was aware of Alice staring at him, of course.
Barne had become much more powerful after he made a breakthrough to be one step away from the invincibilis state. Barne noticed he had become much more attractive to the opposite sex.
Not only was his body powerful now, he was very pure, clean, and full of vitality and elegance. Many women could not help being attracted to him.
Barne felt rather troubled by this.
It would be fine if he was a man of pleasure because he would be able to utilize this to charm beautiful women. The thing was that he was not like that, and he found this to be more a curse than a blessing.
Barne could only give a forced smile because there was nothing else he could change. Barne could not disguise himself as an old man anyhow.
It was fortunate that the beautiful woman next to him was rather cultured. She did not attempt to strike up a conversation with him and would only steal a glance at him occasionally.
The journey from Rheasia to Yingland was long and the flight had only arrived after a whole day.
The beautiful woman seated next to Mozart chatted to him midway. Barne was bored at the time, so he did not stop her.
Alice’s favorable impression of Mozart grew even stronger after their chat because she discovered that not only did he have a pleasant scent, she felt an affinity to him.
It was mainly due to Mozart’s extensive knowledge. Mozart was a brilliant man who could engage in conversation regardless of the topic of discussion. Barne was capable of speaking charismatically.
Barne was also capable of expressing opinions that she had never considered before and this made her eyes lit up with enlightenment.
It was truly interesting to be engaging in a conversation with this man. Hence, she felt unwilling to part ways with Mozart when the plane landed.
She found that she was actually reluctant to leave the stranger from Rheasia.
Mozart did not ask for her number after they got off the plane, and she felt rather dejected by that. Men would always ask for her number in situations like that before, but Mozart did not show any interest in doing so.
It was a crushing blow to her ego. In the end, she could not refrain herself from saying, “May I have your number, Mozart?”
Upon saying that, she looked at Mozart in anticipation.
Mozart could read her mind, so he replied with a smile and said, “I don’t have a local number. We shall meet again when there’s a chance. Goodbye.”
Upon saying that, Mozart left gracefully.
His rejection stunned Alice for a moment. It was her first time asking for a man’s number on her own accord, yet she was actually rejected?
