Home / Chapter 9 The Masquerade
Fate is such a wonderful thing that it is either met or missed...

Karin goes back to school in despair, and she never knows that it would be so difficult to see him. Even if it is frustrating, she is not willing to give up.

When she finds no way out, an entertainment newspaper headline catches her attention "The Charlie Family is going to host a Masquerade on August 13th."

Masquerade? Isn't it another chance to see him?

She comes to Charlie' s for the second time, and she appears as a participant. However, she forgets that the party is not for anyone to attend, and she could not enter without an invitation letter.

Leaning against the buttonwood, she watches others enter with grandeur, her heart is suffering.

Billie has been taken away for five days. If she can't see Charlie again, the consequences will be unthinkable. This is her only opportunity today. She must not miss it anyway. In a hurry, she stops a young man passing by her .

"Sir, can you bring with me?" Seeing the man's eyes full of doubt, she quickly explains: "I want to go in and find someone, but I can't get in without an invitation letter, would you please help me?"

Perhaps the urgency and anxiety in her eyes makes the man unable to bear it, he nods: "Okay, follow me."

Karin is grateful to thank him, holding the man's arm, and goes into the gate of Charlie House.

Inside the house is another scene. It is elegant and magnificent. A towering palace stands before her, giving her an illusion like returning to the nineteenth century Denmark.

She puts on a purple fox mask and says goodbye to the man who brings her in.

When she is turned away, she has difficulty in how to come in. Now she's in, and she doesn't know how to find Charlie. There are hundreds of people here, and the real faces are hidden under gorgeous masks. The chance of finding the person you are looking for with just one look is very thin...

"Well, where is Charlie?"

Behind her are two women in strange costumes whispering. Karin raises her ears to listen to them talking, which is too important for her.

"He should still be upstairs. He always appears at the end of the ball every time."

Upstairs? Her eyes move to the carved armrest in the distance, and she really wants to go for him directly! This may be a bit abrupt, but it is more practical than her blindly finding through the crowd...

Regardless of success or failure, there is no other ways. She has to try.

She goes upstairs, but is dazzled by the intricate interior design in front of her. There are seven or eight corridors, not to mention how many rooms there are.

She explores from room to room and firmly believes that if she continues this way, she would always find the person she was looking for.

When she walks to one of the rooms, the door is half-covered. She is preparing to enter, but suddenly there is a sound of footsteps coming closer. Her hand on the door frame is suddenly pulled in by a brute force. Then, a person with a mask covered her mouth, stretched out his finger to ask her to keep silent.

Karin holds her breath in shock, and a deliberately low voice comes from outside the door, "Have you found him?"


"Keep searching him..."

She slowly raises her chin, and glances towards the pair of strange eyes under the mask. The heartbeat suddenly accelerates. It is him. Even after two years, she still remembers the cold and deep eyes, she still remembers...
