It was just a small incision that allowed a few drops of blood to bleed out but Jane thought of this as a fear tactic.
Anxiety and horror gripped her heart, swaying her emotions to go out of order while making her confused at the ordeal.
Frustration and much more negative emotions soon followed but embarrassment was the main factor.
She could either live but possibly face the wrath of her husband or die a cruel death by this unknown person.
Tears began flowing out like a waterfall while Dean started to become impatient at how long she was taking.
He also began to get anxious as this reminded him of a familiar scene, but he was still able to remember the pain twice when he saw those memories.
"Hurry up! What was the name of your past lover?"
Jane gave in, telling her all she knew
Dean sighed at the answer as there was one part in him that wanted to believe that he had truly gone to the wrong room but it seemed that reality was brutal.
One part told him to be happy for solving this mystery that no one was willing to tell him but the other side was filled with lethargy.
What will you do next?
It was equivalent to a taunt in Dean's mind but he decided he should first settle this matter.
"Good. From beginning to end, explain how you met him."
Panic struck her as she didn't desire to be humiliated right in front of her husband, especially if he revealed certain details.
Glancing back and forth between the man behind her and her husband, Jane waited for any signal for help.
The man obviously saw the predicament his wife was in and smiled to reassure her.
He covered his ears with both hands while settling down the sleeping baby.
Dean smiled at the exchange between the partners and made sure his mum wouldn't make any rash movements
"How sweet. Now begin the story before time runs out."
The sentence was full of sarcasm but Jane began to worry that this man would be keeping track of the time and if they didn't fulfill his requirements, they would die.
To sum it up, it was basically the same story that Lily Zikel had told but it was a much more personal story except Jane stuttered too many times.
It was generally a surprise that Dean realized his temper was a lot less rash when it came to brashly killing people but he was disappointed at the pace of the story.
Only when the story reached the ending did he actually pay full attention.
"H-he then thought that he could take me back using force. T-that day there w-were so many fighters that raided b-but they all d-died. It was fruitless."
Dean saw that Jane was trying to be sensitive to him as she was worried he might kill her for a slight offense but this made him feel a sense of exploration by desiring to ask questions.
"How did Asher Wilkes die?"
"I-I, grandpa suddenly came out and killed him before throwing his body into..."
She was sobbing at the painful memories that resurfaced in her mind but Dean could care nothing about how she felt and proceeded to slice small cuts across her body.
This was a fairly new experience to Dean as he never had the chance to hurt someone of the same bloodline which kind of made him feel guilty yet excited.
They were all the same but harming one's own kin was very unusual.
People were usually taught to respect the older people for they have knowledge yet to just break that rule was an odd feeling, especially one's own mother.
"Throwing his body where?"
"T-they threw it into the pit filled with beasts."
Jane began crying her heart out with pure sincerity but Dean just looked back at the man in front of him and questioned 'how could you be so shameless in front of your husband?'
Dean now learnt more information about the Zikel Clan, the ability to rear beasts as pets was unusual but the broad world would of course have weird and strange people.
"Then what happened after?"
"The c-clan forced me into a marriage with another clan to create peace and further connections"
He was slightly confused at how his mum who at this point had nothing to lose was now 'forced' into something against her will despite having nothing.
"W-we married and had a child to reinforce the happiness of the higher ups withing the clans."
Dean sighed at how complex the system for large clans were but contemplated why she had specifically left out small details.
"What happened to the child?"
"?...H-he's right there."
She didn't dare to freely move her hands around as this could provoke the man and instead tried to use her head to point.
Dean did indeed see a child who was in a deep sleep but he wanted to face palm.
"No, I meant the one with Asher Wilkes."
"You, you, you. How?"
Jane was thrown into panic as she thought it was impossible for the secret to have leaked, even Asher promised he would never say a word.
"You were already TAINTED!"
A sharp yell from the man covering his ears came out accidentally but Dean held him in contempt.
His hands were considerably loose meaning he was listening the whole time but to hold 'purity' at such a high value... it was worth scoffing at.
He never knew there were such traditional people that only faithfully believed that was the first thing they should look in a girl.
"I do recommend that you stay quiet, and the guy in the back! Don't try escaping for help."
There was a man in skin tight clothes slowly backing away through the door the man had entered through but Dean wasn't stupid enough to get into a position of danger.
"Don't test my patience"
