"I am surprised you agreed to dance with me," Zach remarked with a curious look on his face.
"I had no other choice," Aria responded with the same thing as before.
"What's that supposed to mean?" Zach scoffed softly.
Aria looked into Zach's eyes with a flushed face and uttered in a low voice: "I belong to you."
Zach's heart skipped a bit after seeing and hearing that.
"As a servant," Aria then added.
'This is bad…' Zach averted his face to the side as he continued dancing with Aria.
'This is truly bad. I am being charmed by her. I am getting attracted to her. I am… falling in love with her.'
Aria noticed Zach was acting weird, so she asked, "What's wrong?"
"It's nothing," Zach responded without making eye contact with Aria.
Aria bit her lips and muttered, "Do you want to dance with Aurora that badly?"
"Huh? Why are you bringing up Aurora here?" Zach wondered with a puzzled look on his face.
Aria assumed Zach was acting distant because he didn't want to be with her. While in truth, Zach was acting like that because he was getting close to Aria.
"You don't want to dance with me, right?" Aria asked in a disdainful tone.
"What gave you that idea? If I didn't want to dance with you, then I wouldn't dance with you even for a second," Zach responded in a slightly annoyed voice.
"Then why don't you hold me like you were holding Aurora when you were dancing with her?"
"Well…" Zach didn't know how to answer, or rather, he didn't know what answer. He himself was looking for an answer to that question.
"See? I was right after all!"
"Argh!" Zach groaned and placed his hands around Aira's waist. "Why are you girls always like this?"
It wasn't as though Zach was treating Aria indifferently, but he didn't want to break the boundaries of their relationship.
"You can hold me tighter…" Aria uttered in a low voice with a flushed face.
Zach moved his hand further down and pulled Aria close to him. Now, their bodies were touching each other, and their faces were only an inch away from one another.
They could kiss anytime if they wanted.
Aria looked into Zach's eyes and asked, "Why did you defend me? You could have just stood there and watched. Besides, I would have handled it myself."
"There is no way I would have just stood there and let someone insult you. While we might not be a couple, you are still my wife. And I didn't kill him for that, I killed him because he touched you indecently," Zach asserted in a solemn voice without breaking his eye contact with Aria.
After hearing that, Aria's face flushed a little, but it looked as though she had gotten used to that.
"Still, you have my thanks for helping me." Aria smiled wryly and said, "No one has ever done anything for me. So you are my first benefactor."
"Technically, I am your first in many things, you know?" Zach grinned. "I am the first man you touched, hugged, kissed, and many more."
"Just curious, where did Minum touch you?" Zach asked with a curious yet calm look on his face.
"On my butt," Aria answered with a disgusted look on her face. "He squeezed them too."
Zach and Aria were dancing on the rhythm, and no one was swapping partners anymore because the dance was about to end.
Zach stared into Aria's eyes and said, "You said no one did anything for you, but what about your sister?"
"She is not with me anymore." After a brief pause, she added, "And I doubt she loved me."
"Why would you think that?"
"If she loved me, she would have stayed with me. She was always loved by humans, and I was hated by them," Aria scoffed wryly. "No one liked death and destruction, so I was hated. But I was happy as long as my sister was with me. But in the end… she left me and chose humans over me, who later killed her."
'She reincarnated, though,' Zach uttered inwardly. 'I should clear up her misunderstanding.'
"You said your sister visited you in your dream, right?" Zach asked with a knowing look on his face.
Aria nodded in response without saying anything.
"Maybe that was her farewell message to you?" Zach wondered. "Maybe she wanted you to live your life by yourself?"
"I don't know… I thought about it for thousands of years. I searched for her for thousands of years…" Aria sighed. "But well… it doesn't matter anymore because she is dead. And those humans who killed her died a long time ago. So there is no point in me holding a grudge against the rest of the humans."
"You and your sister were high-ranking gods, so that means she must have reincarnated again." However, there is no scheduled time for reincarnation. They could reincarnate the minute they died, or one week later, one mother later, one year later, a decade later, a century later, or even a millennia later. There was no fixed time.
"I did think of that possibility, but if she truly reincarnated again, then that further proves my point." Ari bit her lips and uttered, "If she truly loved me, she would have returned to me after her reincarnation."
'That's not true. She always mentioned you in her stories and said how much she loved you. I don't know what exactly happened between you two after you both were exiled, but I am certain that mom cares about her deeply.'
Zach wanted to tell that to Aria, but he had to wait for the right time. He had decided to tell her when they got back home.
Aria squinted her eyes and asked, "Why are you suddenly curious about me?"
Zach moved his hand further down and touched Aria's butts before answering, "A good husband should know a little about his wife's family."
"Your hands… they are touching… my… butt…" Aria managed to stutter without breaking her eye contact with Zach.
"I am simply marking you as mine. So one else can dare to touch what belongs to me."
