Chapter 202 Hold Tight

“Ethan,” I said as I walked into his tent.

He was sitting on his makeshift desk, looking at the reports and making marks on a map. It had been a few days since we’d talked about anything substantial,

*Rosalie? Is everything okay?” he asked, hopping up with a worried look on his face.


“I’m okay, but I have some news and I figured you should know.”

He put aside what he was doing, paused for a moment, and asked tentatively, “You’ve got news from Soren?”

It was as if he could read my mind. I sighed, “Yes and no, that’s why I wanted to talk to you. My scouts caught up with him, and we confirmed that it was Damian causing chaos in Kal’s ranks.”

He smiled and commented, “That’s good news. His plan worked. Brilliant!”

I was a bit surprised. It wasn’t often to hear Ethan admit someone else had come up with a brilliant plan. It was nice to hear him pay Soren a compliment.

I nodded, “However, we lost contact with Soren afterward.”

His smile faded and was replaced with a frown.

“The scout couldn’t get in touch with him and I’m really worried…”

Deep down, I knew that there wasn’t anything Ethan could do about it either, but I just thought I’d feel better sharing it with him.

Ethan guided me to sit down on his cot and crouched down with one knee kneeled in front of me, his voice was deep and soothing. “I’m worried about him too, but let’s have faith in him. I used to underestimate Soren, but he had proven me wrong. I believe he’s got everything planned out and he is capable of protecting himself.”

I nodded, but I was still unsettled.

Ethan tentatively reached out to hold my hand. Seeing that I didn’t pull it away, he patted it gently and added, “Besides, no news is good news.”

I looked into his eyes, and I could tell he said all that not because he was heartless, but because he truly believed in Soren.

There was tenderness in his once-icy eyes, and I found myself lost in that pair of intense blue orbs.

Ethan had changed.

So had many of us.

When I felt my heart start to speed up under his gaze, I looked away. To cover my nervousness, I said, “You’re right. I’m sure Soren is going to be fine.”

He pulled up a smile, and agreed, “Exactly! Let’s focus on something we can control. Soren created an excellent opportunity for us, so let’s not disappoint him. Now that Kal has retreated, there isn’t a better time for us to chase him down and end this war once and for all.”

His positive attitude cheered me up. I pushed aside my worries and focused back on our action plan. “Ethan, as for strategy and implementation, what we’ve done has been working well. Do you think we continue with you designing strategies and me leading the attacks, now that I am more experienced at rallying the troops?”

*You’re not more experienced at rallying the troops.” Ethan shook his head, a serious expression on his handsome face.

My eyebrows arched. Here I was thinking he was good at paying compliments and he had just denied my progress. I stared at him for a moment, not sure what to say.

“You’re amazing at rallying the troops.” A crooked grin pulled up one corner of his mouth.

i dropped my eyes to the floor, feeling the blood rush to my face, I wanted to smack him in the arm for messing with me, but I didn’t

“Thanks,” I muttered. He was laughing at his own joke, and I giggled, too.

I loved hearing him laugh. It was so rare,

“Anyway…” I continued, “Do you think that’s a good idea?”

“Yes, I do,” he said with a nod “I think it’s a fabulous plan.copy right hot novel pub
