"Well I was going to say this when you were older but given the current situation I should tell you this since there is no need to hide it anymore. And..." As Ronald takes a deep breath and Irene took a sip of tea in the sideline as her husband reveals her past. "Forgive us for never telling you this." "Its alright father, mother. I'm sure you have a good reason for it. More importantly, what happened after that? How did mother and father get married?" "Well it went like this."
Alicia's mother, Irene Bell, was formerly named Irene ir Illyer, eldest daughter of the Illyer family who had the highest noble position of duke in her country the Kirash Kingdom. Her father was a honest, incorruptible, and virtuous man. He ruled over his territory fairly and kind to the people. He was loved by many. He is a good noble. The only good noble. Every other aristocrats are typical corrupted beings like in books and films.
"Tell me father, why did you never tell me about this?" At the question Alicia gave, her father, Ronald stared at her for a moment before putting down his spoon on the plate and answered.
PIIINGG As the high pitch sound lowers Alicia was greeted by a dark cylindrical room. Under her feet is a wood colored circle taking 2/3 of the room. Outside the circle are three curved desks with what seemed to be holographic screens 4 in each desk. Each desk have one person manning it. She looked up to see a second story of the same arrangement and railings in the inner perimeter. Every person on the desk turned towards Owen and Alicia.
"What do you mean we can't reach his phone?" "It kept reply that same 'this call is not available, please leave a message' crap." "Then why don't send an email or something?" "There's no wi fi here." Alicia hears this when she came to. Her body was bound to a pillar in some sort of an abandoned apartment. Her mouth is also covered with a piece of cloth. The first thing she saw was two men, one skinny holding a smartphone and one big and tall by three-fold comparing to the skinny man yelling at the small man. Both were bald and ugly.
"Why are my hands getting warmer?" Alicia Bell wonders as she stares at her two hands. Though the young girl about 160 cm tall with a long, red hair with beautiful blue eyes those not just have her hands getting warmer since last week, her entire body is getting hotter by the day. She was not having a fever despite that, and she even lowered her air conditioner's settings at a far lower temperature than usual.
