Rose seemed incredibly weary about each step she took as every once in a while she would turn back to look for anybody behind her.
Dean knew that she would become more suspicious if he made any sudden movements however he was immediately thrown off by a stick.
Having the desire to curse, Dean hid behind a nearby tree while Rose swiftly turned her back to survey her area.
Seeing a bird fly away into the sky with a worm in its mouth, she sighed at how stressed she was but continued to walk.
Rose's first location was an alchemy store that sold a wide range of herbs. Most of them were meant to be used for giving high amounts of nutrition to cultivators.
Dean followed the locations but what Rose bought was unknown since she hid them in her Space Ring.
Looking at the locations Rose tended to go to, they mostly involved consumables such as herbs, vegetables, meat and water.
He had no idea what she was planning but still followed her.
As if Rose knew that, her paced quickened.
The realization that he was discovered caused Dean to be anxious however he immediately picked himself and hid in the crowd.
Hiding became much more difficult as Rose took paths that were narrow and sharp turns that threw Dean off.
Grinding his teeth at the new found difficulty, Dean gave up following Rose in the normal manner and instead climbed atop a building.
Jumping from a building to another, he managed to get a bird's eye view of each district Rose would go through but he realized that there was a pattern.
Rose would always look back yet run the same path within the same area for around 3 times before switching it to a different route and repeating for 2 times.
Dean was close to getting tired as he realized Rose could easily be lost if he started to get cocky in predicting her path but eventually it seemed Rose gave in.
She looked slightly out of breath but she was slowly approaching to a house that seemed close to being run down.
Trying to take a better look, Dean peered through the window to find that the interior was surprisingly clean with fair looking furniture.
It was not to the point of luxury however what would seem comfortable for most people.
In a distant room he could barely see the face of Christian who seemed sick as his face was abnormally pale and each breathe seemed fragile.
Understanding that all the purchasing Rose has done was just for Christian allowed Dean to take a deep breathe of relief that would allow him to confront her.
Jumping down from the building and stopping just before Rose, Dean stood up against the dust that flew around him.
Rose was surprised at the sudden event but noticing that it was Dean, her eyes widened and prepared to scream but Dean stopped that.
He suddenly bowed
The sudden apology threw her off as Dean's face was covered with a streaks of tears.
Feeling a slight tinge of sympathy from ages ago coming back, Rose couldn't resist the urge to get closer to him.
However the thought that he was enemy still remained making her back off instead.
Dean frowned in his mind but instantly continued his act and started to explain why he had apologized.
"I had no idea things would turn out to be the worst. I just want to apologize to Christian but he suddenly disappeared, s-so I could only follow you."
Rose heard the explanation and paused.
His acting was surprisingly effective but this gave a clue to Dean.
Christian had yet to tell her of the betrayal!
She didn't seem like the type to easily conceal her emotions compared to everyone else and the way she acted was far too realistic.
As expected, her sympathy and the excuse eventually made her give in and inviting Dean into their house, equivalent to inviting a wolf into your den.
Dean had one reassurance which was the fact that he should be able to overpower both of them even if they worked together as Christian should still be recovering from his injuries.
He remembered the time Ayesha yelled that he was expelled as seeing how injured he was but the fondness of those memories instead caused more tears to run down his eyes.
Rose gave him a moment to wipe away his tears before they both entered the house.
It surprisingly had a comfy and cozy feeling due to the warm atmosphere.
She pointed to the left where Christian was currently staying as she ran to the right to boil some water for tea.
Entering a new area that was not within your control felt extremely uncomfortable but he still strove towards the room where Christian was and found that he was wrapped with blankets.
Seeing Dean appear within his home, Christian tried escaping out of the room but he realized that all his strength was gone and he could only barely get off his bed.
Dean chuckled at the amusing reaction
"I'm just here to converse."
He was originally afraid that Dean was just here to kill him and Rose but when he listened carefully, hearing the kettle whistle made his heart calm down.
Dean was currently absent of any malicious intent, allowing Christian to sit back down.
After such a huge defeat, he could only learn from it and reflect much more which made him understand why everything had gone wrong
both were now willing to talk and started to catch up on what had happened between the two.
Christian had now long lost his arrogance as he realized it was too risky and was one of the reasons why he was killed and now defeated, even if he did have it, he couldn't portray it in front of Dean.
"Ayesha, Pierre and Anne died."
This sudden news broke the tension and caused Christian to slam the table.
"IT WASN"T THEM!?"
