A few hours has passed as Riku and Yui comes back to the mansion. Sasha greets them as she gain sight of them.
"Welcome back. Just to let you know, Sasuko is currently not here. She went out with Prince Andrew." Sasha said.
Riku nodes small, "Alright."
~at the beach~
Near the shoreline stood Andrew and Sasuko. No one has spoken since they got there.
Due to the uncomfortable silence, Andrew decided to speak. "Tell me, does your family belong to a corporation?"
Sasuko nodes small, "Yes. We belong to the Royalty Corporation which contains the top three bloodlines-- the Mia bloodline, Akihiko bloodline, and Ackerman bloodline."
"Yeah. The current CEO is the second prince of the Akihiko bloodline, Chidori Akihiko."
"Do you help out within the corporation?"
"Sometimes. Others time, I'm busy running our gang."
"Yeah. We are known as the Akumu Wolves. This gang is a sign of unity between the three bloodlines."
"But that doesn't mean others from different bloodlines can not join. Our Alpha is from the Yatsu bloodline."
"So your beta?"
"Yes, I am beta of the gang."
Silence once again took over. Sasuko started feeling very uneased, looking around here and there every so often.
".....Did you ever had a lover?" Andrew asked.
"Wha....n-no... But I have been a mistress before." Sasuko answered.
"A.. A mistress?!" Andrew asked, shocked.
"Yes, for a while. It was the only way I could have helped my family's name be cleared for something they did not do."
"And due to that, I was forced to be with Riku. He didn't even want to have a night stand with me."
"And that's how Yui came into existence?"
"Yeah. I wanted an abortion at first, but my parents talked me out of it."
"Is that so?"
"Yea, they told me: "It is not the child's fault for what has happened. Why punish it for something it didn't ask for?""
Andrew just nodes quietly, not knowing what to say. Sasuko sighs small as she starts to feel emotional.
"I shouldn't have brought up such topic. I'm sorry." Andrew said, noticing her condition.
"Oh, it's fine. No worries..." Sasuko said as she stared at the ocean.
Not wanting to make things worse, Andrew, too, stared at the ocean.
As the sun started setting, Andrew and Sasuko gave each other their farewells and parted their ways. As she arrived back to the mansion, Riku has already left and Yui was sleeping.
"Welcome back, master." Yona said, greeting Sasuko.
"Yona, why aren't you asleep like the others?" Sasuko asked.
"I was ordered to wait for you to come back home."
"I see. Well, I'm back. So you can go rest now."
"As you wish, my lady." Yona bows respectfully before going to her rightful room.
Sasuko quietly goes to the basement. There were still a few maids cleaning up the left over mess.
'So, they already dealt with him?' Sasuko thought.
As one of the maids noticed her, she quickly walks up to her. "My heiress, you should be sleeping like the others."
"I'm not so tired." Sasuko answered.
"Were you crying?" The maid asked as she noticed how red Sasuko's eyes were.
"Hm...well then. Please rest. You need it."
Sasuko sighs small, and nodes. Walking out the basement, many things were going through her mind. Entering her room, she closes the door behind her and lays on the bed.
"If only we didn't have any enemies.... I wouldn't have had to become a mistress..... or be forced to sleep with Riku....." She said to herself as tears started rolling down from her eyes.
Eventually, Sasuko cried herself to sleep.
