The heir and his personal attendant.

She swept her gaze around the room from where she was standing near the long table. Once in a while, she would twist the hem of her dress and touch her hair arranged neatly with the help of her colleague.

No. It's not that this was her first party, everyone looking so elegant even though she's there only to provide a service to the guests. But wherever she looked, she could feel that someone was watching her.

There, in a corner, a dazzling man was chatting with his guests confidently. Yet he managed to steal a glance at the long table and this time their eyes met.

The young Fullbuster tilted his head toward her, his little smile so devastatingly sexy.

She hurriedly looked away and was focusing her gaze on a small plate that contain a slice of delicious cake in front of her. From the corner of her eye, she saw the man walking toward her after checking his pocket watch.

Each step he took closer to her made her heart jump and her face flush.

"Do you want a glass of champagne, young master?" She stood nervously as she handed the glass to him.

The dark-haired man shook his head lightly.

She blinked and took a step back unconsciously.

Suddenly drawing closer, inch by inch he closed the distance between them, until she was backed up against a wall.

"What are you thinking, Heartfilia?" asked the man as he locked his gaze on her.

The blonde maid couldn't take her eyes off of him, caught in the sharpness of his gaze, his dark eyes as dangerous as the storm.

"It's okay; you don't need to answer." He's tracing her cheek with his fingertip gently, making her knees weak. "I can see the answer in your eyes."

She looked away as she blushed.

He then brought his lips close to her ear and whispered, "Don't worry, I will not force you. You have to want me as much as I want you."

Too stunned to speak and too nervous to move, she just stood there against the wall with bated breath.

A mischievous smile played on his lips as he saw her trapped like that, "You know… that look on your face is absolutely golden…" he removed his hand from her wrist before leaving the girl, "just like your hair…" and took her jade hairpin.

"Come to my chamber if you want this back."
