Sebastian lay panting in bed. Beside him, the girl was also trying to catch her breath. Both were covered in a sheen of sweat as they both struggled to get under the covers quickly, to escape the cold air that hung around them. Even though the small house had a fireplace, it had long burned out in the night.

Seeing an opportunity, she laid on his chest as she cuddled him for his warmth. "You're always rough. I feel that you're going to physically break me someday."

"I always lose myself when we do this. You of all people should know why." Sebastian still laid on his back as he tried to fix the pillow with his other hand. He could smell the subtle scent of flowers from her hair and he felt her supple skin on his own bare skin. He thought she maintained herself very well, considering her job.

"sigh. He's still not recovered if that's what you're asking. He's almost a different person now, as if rough and angry all the time." Mel continued to use the arrows in her own quiver, ignoring the new one brought by the guild master.

"Everyone understands his sentiment. However, it's been an entire season since then. I need to talk to him."

"Then why can't the all-powerful guild master talk to a single adventurer? Why do you have to go through me?" TWENG! The arrow missed its mark as it hit the stone wall behind it instead.

"He thinks it's his fault that Becky died, but there was nothing he could do about it. Even if I was there, the results might have been the same."
