When he turned to Aurora, he found Aurora standing with her hands folded below her bosom. She was looking at him with a soft glare in her eyes and a little curious yet angry look on her face.
"On a scale of one to ten, can you rate how much trouble am I in?" Zach asked with an awkward look on his face.
"Zero," Aurora answered.
"Uhh… what? Can you repeat it?" Zach asked with a surprised look on his face. "I think I misheard what you said. There is no way you actually said 'Zero', right?"
"That's what I said," Aurora nodded.
Zach raised his brows and glanced at Aria before asking, "Are you hearing what I am hearing?"
"I am just as surprised as you are," Aria responded with a surprised look on her face.
Neither Zach nor Aria could believe that Aurora wasn't angry about all of this.
Not only Zach had revealed that he was married to Aria, but he also kissed Aria in front of more than 500 people, including Aurora.
"Why are you not angry?" Zach asked with a puzzled look on his face.
"You want me to be angry? Aurora asked with a slight grin on her face.
"I do not, but… why are you not angry?"
Aurora shrugged her shoulders and said, "I am not angry, but I am disappointed."
'That's more like her….' Zach sighed and pointed his finger at the empty table.
"Let's discuss this while eating," he suggested.
"It's going to be a long meal then," Aurora responded with a scoff.
Zach, Aurora, and Aria went to the table and sat on the seat. However, Aurora sat beside Aria while she usually always sat beside Zach so she could feed him. But sadly, it seemed that Zach had to eat his food by himself.
Zach and Aurora sat in front and stared at each other without speaking a single word. When Zach shot a glance at Aria, he saw her smirking.
'This… useless goddess! Why are you smirking when your nephew is in distress.' Zach glared at Aria and used his telepathy to talk with Aria.
'Hey!' Zach said to her.
"...!" Aria almost jumped in surprise after hearing Zach's voice in her mind. Then, she frowned her face and glared at Zach.
'What do you want?' she asked.
'Help me out!'
'Why should I? She asked in a haughty tone.
'We are friends, right?'
'Oh? Since when did we become friends? I don't recall you ever mentioning me as a friend before,' Aria remarked.
'Well…' Zach was left speechless. However, Aria was telling the truth.
'You only came to me whenever you needed my left. You came to me when you wanted me to teach you about magic and cultivation. You came to me when you wanted oxygen for Aurora. You kissed me when you wanted to use me as an excuse to not marry Aquarius.'
Aria's words left a sting in Zach's heart.
'I thought I am slowly changing, but I am still a selfish asshole, huh?' Zach uttered to himself. However, he left his telepathy on, and Aria heard it.
'Hey, I didn't say that.' Aria uttered in a calm voice. 'But I don't mind helping you if you agree on my terms.'
'Ah, yes. Just like the typical Aria I know,' Zach scoffed inwardly. 'So, what do I have to do?'
'I can't think of anything right now. So you have to do one thing as I say in the near future, okay?' Aria asked.
'Uhh.. fine, I guess. As long as you don't ask me to do something that affects my relationship with Aurora, I agree on your terms.' Zach agreed on Aria's terms without thinking much about it.
'So, how should I help you?' Aria asked with a curious look on her face.
'Just back me up and play along,' Zach answered.
Meanwhile, Aurora was confused after seeing Aria and Zach staring at each other and making different expressions on their faces.
Aurora furrowed her brows and asked, "How long are you going to stare at each other?"
Zach turned to Aurora and grabbed her hand in his hand. He stared into her eyes and said, "I am a god."
"Okay…" Aurora slightly nodded.
"That's… not the reaction I expected, but okay," Zach nodded back and said, "Ameria's real name is Aria, and she… is a goddess."
"..." This time, Aurora reacted a little.
"Don't look at me like that. I am not lying." Zach pointed his gaze at Aria and said, "You can ask her."
Aurora kept her eye contact with Zach and said, "I believe you because I know you never lie."
"So, Aria and I formed a soul pact, which would benefit both of us. But that contract was registered as marriage in the game for some reason," Zach asserted.
"So this is what you have been doing after entering her room late at night?" Aurora asked with a knowing look on her face.
"How many times have you fucked her?" she asked with a straight face.
"What?!" Zach exclaimed. "No, no, no. There is nothing between us, and we haven't done anything."
"But you did kiss her twice in front of me without any hesitations," Aurora remarked.
"I had no other choice."
Aurora finally broke eye contact with Zach and glanced at Aria.
She furrowed her brows as she squinted her eyes and said, "And you didn't seem to mind it much even though he was kissing you without your consent."
"T-That's not true…" Aria stuttered. "Even if I wanted to push him, I wouldn't be able to."
"Why is that?" Aurora asked with a curious and eager look on her face.
"Because of the contract," Aria responded in a calm voice and glanced at Zach before saying, "Zach and I have a relationship of a master and a servant."
"..." Aurora glanced back and forth at Aria and Zach a couple of times and asked, "Who… is the master, and who is the servant?"
"I… am the master," Zach responded with an awkward smile on his face.
