The Girl in Cell 3 (Triple Witching Hour)

Every day SABLE talks to her knight in shining armor, EREN. She says sweet words, tugging at his heart, hoping to steal it. But there is always a barrier between them - a prison cell door. EREN has struck a deal: keep her locked up and his little brother will be out of harms way.

Her cell is inescapable and her placement on death row rises fast. She aims to seduce him and have him break her out. But when truths and lies become one, can she deceive his heart without breaking her own?


36. Chapter 35 - Eren

Eren left Marcus in the prison to watch over the witches. He walked up the stairs, to the areas of the barracks that received the light of the sun and moon. Something about the witches, he thought. This felt rather strange. Reinhard had never interfered with his work after handing the reins over to him—perhaps something had gone wrong during the three days he was away? 

Eren shook his head. No, everything appeared fine during his patrol. 

He knocked on Reinhard’s door. 

“Come in.”

Eren stepped into the office. Reinhard was sitting behind his desk, reading letters. Zofia was sitting and reading on top of a pile of books in the corner—a throne of knowledge. 

What was she doing here? Eren remembered that Reinhard had told him that this woman was a representative of the Church of Valor and that she was here to make a report on the state of the witches, but that shouldn’t require her to sit in the Commanding Officer’s office the entire time. He wanted to ask Reinhard if she was his lover, but the mood in the room did not allow for such a question. 

“Eren, it is good to see you.” Reinhard set down the letter and offered Eren a seat. 

After taking another look at Zofia, Eren sat down in the wooden chair. 

“How is Kolin doing?” Reinhard asked. 

“He’s on his way to a full recovery,” Eren said. “All he needs now is some rest.” 

“Bless the Word of Light,” Reinhard sighed with relief. “I’ve never seen Kolin sick before—not even during that harshest of winters in our old village...”

“I don’t know what illness got to him, but I’m glad the medicine worked.”

“Well, that is very good,” Reinhard nodded with approval. 

Zofia looked up from her book. “What medicine did you give him if you didn’t know what ailed him?” 

Eren bit his tongue. Zofia smiled and her rosy eyes crinkled at the corners with sardonic amusement. Reinhard raised both eyebrows.

“I asked one of the doctors outside King’s Pride to have a look at him.” 

Zofia put down her book. Eren swallowed silently. “And what is that good doctor’s name? I would like to know—in case anyone I know catches this mysterious disease.” 

“I don’t know his name, I only know that he is a hunchback.” 

“A hunchback? How curious...” 

Zofia pursed her lips in contemplation, then picked up her book again. Eren breathed out silently. He wanted to leave this room right now. He was afraid that if he stayed longer, then Zofia would ask more questions—smart questions. 

Fortunately, Reinhard appeared to be completely satisfied with Eren’s answers. 

“Well, it is good to hear that Kolin is fine again ,” he pulled out a scroll from the mountain of parchments on his desk, “but there is something else I have to discuss with you.” 

Eren waited for him to continue.

“The Church of Valor has told me that there will be a new shipment of witches coming in seven days.” 

“But the prison is already full.” 

“Most of them will go to the second prison we have set up on the other side of the city,” Reinhard said. “But we will have to take our share somehow.” 

Eren scratched the back of his head. The only way to accommodate more witches was to increase the number of witches per cell. But the higher the number of witches in a cell, the higher the chances of a breakout incident. 

“And,” Reinhard continued, “I have a special order.” 

He handed Eren a folded piece of parchment, sealed with a wax seal that had the emblem of the Church of Valor stamped on it. 

Special order? Eren raised an eyebrow. No one ever gave special orders in the King’s Pride army. No such thing existed within the standard chain of command. Unless—

Eren opened the envelope. 

“What!” he exclaimed and jumped out of his chair. “What is the meaning of this!” 

Reinhard folded his arms. “You will take her out of the cell and transfer her to another cell. After that, I will personally implement the next stage of measures.” 

Eren turned to Zofia. “Is this your doing?” 

“You will only address me!” Reinhard bellowed. 

Eren turned to Reinhard. Silence. Eren frowned. He could see it Reinhard’s eyes; he loved Zofia, he wanted to protect her, he was her man. 

She was his Queen.

Eren breathed out sharply. “Fine. I will take care of Sable’s cell.” 

“Good. You are dismissed.” 

Eren clicked his heels, saluted and made his way out the room. He opened the door and just when he was about to exit the room, he stopped and asked: “ you know anything about this thing called the Champion of Light?” 

“How do you know that?” 

“Just something I heard people whispering about in the taverns.” 

“I know nothing about any Champion of Light.” 

Eren closed the door.
