Cecil could still see it, as clear as day.
She could still replay that memory in her mind. Xue absorbed Isleif, and the next moment, he was on the ground coughing out blood.
For her sake.
If it was for her sake, she was truly worth everything.
However, for Cecil, there was no way she could bear seeing the person she liked very deeply, going through agonising pain just for her sake.
Once was more than enough.
She couldn't see it twice.
Is it for my sake this time around too?
Cecil stared up at Xue in the air, noticing his gaze fixated upon her, never once straying. She frowned, and she inexplicably knew.
She knew that this man was rushing to absorb Jehan for her sake as well.
"Did you hear me, Xue?" Cecil took a step forward, increasing the volume of her voice. "You can't do this again!"
Jehan was still weakened from the attack from Hana's arrow coated in light magic, and when he heard Cecil ordering Xue to stop his actions, he felt gratified.
Is she doing it...for me?
