- If you'll offend Summer again... - the man spited out clenching his fists.
- Then what? - Hadrian came closer leaning towards Cornvallis.
- You'll see...
- I'd like to see... - Hadrian's dark eyes flashed.
- I'm not afraid of you, Hadrian... If even you killed countess Emeny... - Cornvallis narrowed his eyes.
- And if I did then what? - Hadrian came even closer to Cornvallis. - What will you do? Punish me? - he chuckled. - Don't be ridiculous, my boy!
- I will not do, but others will... They will hang you up in the square of village, - Cornvallis smiled a bit.
- Oh, so our good innocent Cornvallis wishes to see me hanged! - Hadrian grimaced. - And you know what? I heard people told that you like to run after other skirts. If Summer will know it she'll not be happy, right?
Cornvallis felt how his face got red in the anger.
- It's not your affair, murder...
- My life is neither yours...
- It's not about your life, it's about the countess' life!
- Aye! Mister Good is back! - Hadrian grinned. - Just don't make me slobber, boy!
- Shut your mouth...
Hadrian turned his face at his father.
- I'm sorry, father.
- As you know, guys, you'll never solve your problems fighting, - Gregory smiled at Hadrian and Cornvallis.
- Yes, sir Gregory, I agree with you, - nodded Cornvallis. - But I'll never allow to anyone to offend my wife, - he said firmly.
- Your wife has too long tongue! - Hadrian raised his voice again.
- Hadrian, son... - Gregory tried to calm him down.
- Summer says a truth, that's why you are so furious! - Cornvallis exclaimed.
- Listen... - Hadrian looked at Cornvallis. - Just leave me alone and don't put your nose not into your matters, ok?
- You'll not believe in me, father...
- Why? I'm your father, Hadrian! I am the one who trusts you, who knows you since that day when you were born! - Gregory's voice was full of emotions. - Let's talk, Hadrian! For the sake of all of us...
- I didn't kill countess, - Hadrian said silently.
- So? What has happened then? - asked Gregory turning to his son.
- I don't know, - Gregory shrugged.
- But you saw the countess that night, right?
- Yes... - Hadrian nodded. - That night I was waiting outside when I can slip in the castle. Countess Emeny and count sat in the dinning room and talked. I saw them both from my hiding place... Count as always made the scenes to his wife, - Hadrian smiled. - He couldn't accept the fact that the countess even didn't admit him as a man...
"Yes", - I whispered. But Emeny was too smart woman to believe in my words. She pushed me away calling me liar.
"What's wrong, my countess?"- I asked her.
"Nothing", - she shook her head. - "So why are you here?"
We stared at each other. The countess waited for my answer and I really didn't know what to say her.
"So..." - she pierced me with her beautiful eyes.
She smiled and laughed softly.
"Then why do you ask me?"
"Just because I like to play like you, Hadrian", - she smiled.-"If I'll give you what you are looking for, how will you reward me?"
"Try to guess", - I pushed her against the wall and kissed her not letting her to speak. I didn't trust countess, but she was very hot and passionate, so I couldn't resist against her and never wanted that. After all we dressed up and went upstairs down.
Gregory looked at his son's eyes and smiled.
- I believe you, but told me not all, son...
Hadrian looked down at the grass.
- Yes, I told you not all, father. But it's better not know everything. For the sake of all of us.
