14. Chapter 12

Ruvel looked at Iryn and said "Well, I have to go now to look for that room, let's meet tomorrow at sunset in the town center. I'll bring the key with me, then we go free the slaves... After that, we should leave Orwyn. We can't risk being discovered."

"Ok. Thanks Ruvel for helping us!"

A small smile appeared on his face, he stood up and walked away.

"Let's go, we finished here" said Alar. They all wen out the library and headed to the inn. When they arrived to their room, Alar didn't enter " I'll go check out the security in Orwyn, I have to find a safe way to escape in case something went wrong"

"I'll go with you" said Iryn quickly.

"No" He looked at Amaya briefly then averted his gaze "Stay with Amaya" He turned on his heels and walked away.

Iryn turned to Amaya and saw her red cheeks "Wow, your face his red! Are you feeling sick?"

"What? no.. I'm ok"

Iryn looked at her suspiciously "You sure?"

"Yes..."

"Oh right! You told me that something happened yesterday when I didn't come back to the inn, what is it?"

"Oh that.. never mind, it's embarrassing"  Her face became more red

"Really? Then I wanna know!" Iryn smirked

"Well... I was taking a bath.. and the moment I stepped out the bathtub... Alar walked in.. he saw me naked"

"Pwahahaha"

"Don't laugh! It's serious! I can't look him in the eye since then!"

"Don't worry, he probably didn't care. Maybe he already forgot!"

"Oh.." Amaya looked down at the bed she was sitting on and started playing with the cover's folds.

Iryn said with a smirk on her face " You look disappointed!"

Amaya looked up in panic "No! I ..."

"You like him!" She looked at Amaya with a big smile. 

Amaya's cheeks flushed bright red, she looked down and didn't reply.

Iryn sighed and sat down next to her friend, she put her arm around her shoulders "I don't know what to say. Alar is a good guy but, well... he's too serious and to tell you the truth, sometimes I think that he has a frozen heart, I know he loves me and he would die for me but, it seems that he doesn't have a space in his heart for romance.. I'm sorry."

Amaya sighed with sorrow.

"But who knows, maybe you can melt the ice around his heart and prove me wrong" Iryn winked.

*************************************

Ruvel entered Orwyn's castle, he walked straight up to the stairs to go up to his chamber, when he put his foot on the first step, a familiar calm voice called him "Ruvel"

He turned back and saw an elegant lady standing and looking straight at him. He put his right hand -that still had bandage wrapped around it- on his heart and bowed his head a little "Mother"

"Where have you been?"

Ruvel lowered his gaze and stayed silent.

"You were aware that yesterday we held a ball to introduce your brother Elyon as the official heir of Aesons weren't you? Of course you were!"

She waited for him to speak but he didn't. She continued "You disgraced our family again. Is it a hobby of yours? Everyone on the ball was talking about how you are jealous of your brother and that you don't accept him as the heir, that's the reason of your absence isn't it?"

Ruvel raised his gaze "But that's not true! I love my brother! I ... just... didn't want to cause any problems or ... accidents.."

"By drinking all night in a tavern full of lowly people?!"

"You... had me followed?" Said Ruvel in surprise.

"No, I merely did a small investigation this morning to know where have you spent the night. Sadly, I wasn't surprised. Ruvel, you should be grateful to us. We allowed you to come back to the castle after graduating from the Magic Academy, we didn't cut you off from the family. But that's enough! I'm going to talk about it now with your father!"

"But I ... did nothing to deserve this!"

"You still can't see it? You are an abomination, a disgrace, you are not worthy to be an Ivon!" She turned her back to Ruvel and walked away, her heels echoing in the castle.

Ruvel clenched his hands into fists, his stared for a while at the direction where his mother disappeared, then he closed his eyes and sighed "Not worthy..... maybe you're right..." He smirked sadly and went upstairs to his chamber. He opened his closet and took out a small box. He opened it and took out a small pendent. "I think I can use this to find the secret room. If what father said when he gave it to me long time ago about it being ancient is true, it should lead me to where it belongs, with the other ancient items" He closed his eyes to concentrate, the pendent suddenly glowed and floated in the air.

Ruvel opened his eyes "Ok, now show me the secret room." The pendent started flying slowly and Ruvel followed it.

He walked across the castle, went down some tunnels until he stopped on a dead end. The pendent stopped glowing and fell on Ruvel's hand. "It didn't work" Ruvel was disappointed, But he suddenly noticed some faint symbol carved on the wall, he traced it with his hands "This is... the symbol of house Ivon!" while tracing the symbol, he touched a brick and the wall opened to reveal the secret room Ruvel was looking for.

He entered the room and saw the ruby in the center. He walked towards it and removed the glass cylinder that protects it. He took a deep breath and  let it out, then he reached to the red gemstone with his hand. "Ah!" he removed his hand from it as soon as it touched it. He looked at his palm, it had blood. The gemstone felt like a ball of tiny sharp razors, it cut his hand as soon as it touched it.

Ruvel took out a handkerchief from his pocket and used it to take the ruby, then he wrapped it and put it in his pocket.

When he was about to leave the room he stopped and returned to where the ruby was. "I can't risk being discovered now" He took out the gemstone and looked at it intensively then put it back to his pocket. He closed his eyes to concentrate. When he opened his eyes, there was an illusion of the ruby exactly were it was. 

He covered the illusion with the glass cylinder and walked out the room. As soon as he stepped outside, the wall closed again.

"Ruvel?" a female voice called from behind him.
