"Umm…" Zach glanced back at Aurora to ask her if she wanted to go, but Aurora didn't say anything.
"I am inviting you alone!" Aquarius added.
"Oh!" Zach pondered for a while and uttered, "Does it have to be now?"
"If you can." Aquarius quietly nodded and said, "But if you don't want to come, then it's completely okay."
"No, it's fine. I will join you," Zach replied in a calm voice.
"Are you… sure?" Aquarius asked while looking at Aurora.
"Hmm?" Zach looked back and saw Aurora staring at them.
"Yeah, don't mind her." Zach nodded at Aurora and left the room with Aquarius.
"She was glaring at me…" Aquarius muttered.
"You will get used to that," Zach scoffed out loud.
Zach was exhausted, and he wanted to sleep, but he didn't want to say no to Aquarius. He had already rejected her many times, and he didn't want Aquarius to think that he was ignoring her.
"Where are we going?" Zach asked with a curious look on his face.
Zach and Aquarius were walking through the sea palace's hallways.
"I want to show you something." Aquarius squirmed and asked, "Can I…. hold your hand?"
Zach raised his brows and squinted his eyes before saying, "We have already kissed a couple of times, and I even squeezed your boobs not long ago. So why are you fidgeting while asking to hold my hand?"
"I don't want you to think I am touchy," Aquarius muttered under her breath with a wry smile on her face.
Zach sighed and held Aquarius' hand tightly.
"You don't have to worry about such stuff. And besides, I am blunt at everything. So if I find something uncomfortable, I would say it directly to you," Zach asserted. "And you are a princess. Have some arrogance."
Aquarius puckered her lips and said, "I don't think I can be a rude girl." She turned to Zach and asked, "Why do you like rude girls?"
"Umm… I don't know how to answer that, to be honest." Zach pondered for a while and replied, "I think it's because all the girls and women I have met happened to be rude. I mean, they weren't human, so it's given that they would have high ego and pride."
"I am curious to know more about you," Aquarius uttered. "I hope you can tell me more about yourself when I join you on your journey after two months."
"It's going to be a lot of things…" Zach said with a distant smile on his face.
After walking for about five more minutes, Aquarius took Zach to the backside of the palace, where fewer people were around.
Now that Zach knew that the citizens in the palace were also guards, he was a little cautious of them.
"Do you want to go in a carriage, or do you want to ride me?" Aquarius asked with a curious yet calm look on her face.
Zach covered his face after hearing that and thought, 'She is talking about a different ride me, right?'
"What's wrong?" she asked with an anxious look on her face.
"I will ride you," Zach uttered with an awkward smile on his face.
Aquarius' face flushed a little after hearing Zach's answer.
"..." Zach raised his brows and uttered inwardly: 'Why is she blushing?! She didn't mean the other 'ride me', right?!'
"Umm, I have to cast a spell on you so you can breathe underwater without any need to hold your breath." Aquarius pulled Nero close and kissed him on the lips.
"The kiss wasn't necessary to cast the spell, right?" Zach asked with a judging look on his face.
"Who knows?" Aquarius replied with a grin on her face.
'I noticed this before, but she does have a hidden naughty side behind her innocent face,' Zach asserted inwardly.
"So, where are we going?" Zach asked again.
Aquarius nudged her head and said, "Hop on my back. And grab me tightly."
"Are you sure you can carry me?"
Zach hugged Aquarius from behind and wrapped his arms around her neck.
"Wrap your legs, too," she said.
"..." Zach reluctantly wrapped his legs around Aquarius' waist.
"Don't let go, okay?" Aquarius started walking and slowly increased her speed. Then, she jumped off the balcony and dived into the water below the palace area.
Zach tried to breathe, and he could breathe normally without any problem. It was as though the spell Aquarius cast was stopping the water from entering his nose and mouth. However, Zach noticed that even his clothes weren't getting wet.
Aquarius's human form changed into a mermaid. Her legs turned into a tail, and the skin of the upper part of her body had turned into scales. Her ears had also turned into fins.
'I did see her in her mermaid form before, but this one is different. That one was probably her half-mermaid form.'
Zach's grip around Aquarius's body was getting loose, but Zach was more focused on Aquarius.
Fortunately, he didn't lose his grip and reached the destination.
When Aquarius stepped on the land, her form changed into a human again.
"Where are we?" Zach asked while glancing around.
The place was as big as the place, and there were lots of statues in every corner. The walls looked dirty, but upon taking a closer look, he realized that the marble on the walls was like that.
"This is the sea temple, and it's like a holy place for all the sea creatures," Aquarius replied in a calm and low voice.
Zach squinted his eyes and asked, "Why are we here?"
Aquarius ignored Zach's question and continued, "This is where my blessing ceremony will take place after two months."
"I brought you here because I wanted to show you something." She turned to Zach and said with a smile on her face. "Something I haven't shown to anyone, nor have I told anyone."
After a brief pause, she added, "Not even my Mama or daddy."
She pointed her finger at Zach and said, "I want you, the person I love, to see me first."
Aquarius took off all her clothes without caring to cover her private parts. Then, her body shined brightly, and it forced Zach to close his eyes.
When he opened his eyes, he saw: "That's…"
