n how they acted.
Suzanna suddenly thought Anfey as a hero. Suzanna would love to be with Anfey forever.
At that moment, Anfey was still thinking about the biological question of how Suzanna smelled nice without using fragrance power. The nice smell should be created by perspiration and skin oil. Diving deeper on this question, it seemed that some animals attracted the opposite sex by secreting hormones. Maybe human beings inherit this ability as well. Anfey suddenly realized he had not had sex for a long time.
Suzanna got upset after she saw Anfey zoned out as he played with her hair. This man rarely expressed himself. He never told her how much he liked her or where they were in their relationship. Women always wanted to know though.
Suzanna bit her lips and swung her hair at Anfey’s face on purpose. Anfey was shocked, but it made Suzanna laugh.
"Are you feeling better?" Anfey asked with a smile.
"Yes," Suzanna nodded. Thinking about the old times had made her depressed, but she always felt better if she had Anfey with her. It had nothing to do with how powerful he was. She only wanted to have someone she could rely on.
"We have been sitting here half of the night. My butt started to hurt. Let’s go take some rest. We need travel tomorrow," Anfey said.
"No." Suzanna suddenly acted like a little kid. She leaned back and threw herself in Anfey’s arms again.
Anfey held her in his arms and suddenly remembered that he had not figured out the question he had before. An assassin without self-control was a failure. Anfey never had any problem with self-control. The princess from Shansa Empire was a beautiful girl, the best of the best, but Anfey was never aroused by her even when she flirted with him. It had been a habit for Anfey to always have self-control. He had fought the attraction from that princess by instinct.
Anfey liked Suzanna because she won his trust with her bravery and performance on the battlefield. There was a big difference between flirting with Suzanna and that princess. Anfey started to feel aroused having Suzanna in his arms. Suzanna seemed to feel the same way. She was getting more clingy and breathed a little heavier.
"Anfey!" Riska yelled. He sounded like someone striking a broken gong.
In fact, Riska’s low and coarse voice usually sounded pretty manly, but this time it sounded very shrill to Anfey and Suzanna. It really sounded similar to striking a broken gong.
"We are up here. What are you yelling about?" Anfey yelled harshly.
Suzanna quietly left Anfey’s arms. Everyone knew there were dating, but it was not appropriate to let others see them being too intimate.
"Huh?" Riska was shocked for a second. He was not so sure why Anfey was so upset. He instinctively looked around to try to think of something to talk about. "Anfey, Suzanna disappeared."
"You disappeared!" Suzanna did not sound too happy either.
Riska suddenly realized his mistake. He cleared his throat a few times and broke a random branch from a tree. He aimlessly doodled on the ground. One was his bro and leader and the other was Anfey’s future wife. He had to take it, even though they were not too nice to him.
"Anfey, why have you not asked about my past?" Suzanna asked quietly as she tied up her hair.
"I am waiting for you to tell me." Anfey moved closer to Suzanna and grabbed her soft hand.
"I won’t tell you if you don’t ask." Suzanna was not too happy with his answer and rolled her eyes at Anfey. However, she did not take her hand from Anfey’s and just let him hold her.
Anfey smiled without arguing. He held Suzanna’s small waist with the other hand. He never wanted to tell others about his background and history, so he never bothered to ask anyone’s either.
"Anfey," Suzanna murmured as she put her head on Anfey’s shoulder.
"Yes," Anfey said.
"What do you wish for most?" Suzanna asked.
"A safe and happy life. Marry a girl named Suzanna." Anfey did not like to express himself, but he still knew how to flirt.
"I hate you." Suzanna slightly pushed Anfey away.
"I am still going to marry you even though you hate me." Anfey nodded vigorously.
Suzanna sighed and said quietly, "It would not be easy for us to live a safe and happy life."
"Why do you say that?" Anfey asked.
"Think about yourself." Suzanna smiled. "You have pissed off Master swordsman Philip and Shansa Empire’s royal families. You even caught the princess of Shansa Empire. We have too many enemies."
"Indeed, many enemies," Anfey said proudly, "but they are nothing to me."
"Seriously?" Suzanna looked at Anfey. She never remembered Anfey having this kind of look.
"Yes. Philip is just a coward. I sent him a challenge letter. He would not even take my challenge," Anfey said.
"Challenge letter? When did you sent him the challenge letter? How come I never heard of it?" This was huge. Suzanna looked nervous.
"A long time ago," Anfey said.
"What did you write in that challenge letter?" Suzanna got even more nervous when she saw Anfey’s serious look. Challenge letters were not casually sent out or accepted. Once the challenge letter was sent and accepted by both parties, nothing would get in the way of the fight proposed in the challenge letter. They had to come to the fight even if one of them was about to die from sickness. They would leave themselves a bad name for a long time if they did not come to the fight. Even they were too sick to walk, they had to crawl to the fight arena to fulfil their promise, otherwise they would disobey the holy rules of the challenge letter.
"I have challenged Philip to a fight in Blackwater City in twenty years. It was a deal between us," Anfey said.
"You…" Suzanna did not know whether she should cry or laugh. She realized Anfey was just kidding with her.
