"I-Is there a ghost?" Alessandra questioned and stepped closer to Edgar due to the fact there was no one around for her to see but she clearly heard a voice.

A devious idea came to Edgar's mind because of how close Alessandra had stepped to him. "It seems to be. The palace has many haunted rooms. I've heard former royals refuse to leave the palace. The lanterns you see are actually meant to show ghosts," Edgar looked off to the side to hide his smile when Alessandra gripped his hand tighter.

Alessandra was about to pull Edgar to return to the ballroom when she noticed the man Oliver stepping out into her view further down the hall. "There's no ghost. That's the town guard. Edgar," she pinched his arm for trying to fool her.

"You know I can not say anything now. My family has made preparations for the wedding to happen soon. Why are you making things hard?" Oliver smacked his hand against the wall.
