From Omega to Luna
Chapter 73 Alcohol is the best medicine
I must be the biggest joke of all time. I raised my head to look at the rising sun, the dazzling light hurt my eyes, I couldn't help shedding tears. That woman looked beautiful and strong, and that's who should match Athan Buffay, not me. Fortunately, I have left. So I didn’t have to face that embarrassing situation, and I didn’t have to face the fate of being abandoned again. I ran back to my car and slumped on the seat, my hands were shaking so hard that I couldn't start the car for a long time. It was dawn, and I knew I couldn't stay here for long. I took a deep breath and bit my tongue hard, and the pain and the smell of salty blood woke me up. Before I drove away, I tore off the necklace around my neck, the silver crescent pendant still carrying my body temperature. For the last time, I took a closer look at the silver crescent. Thinking of the day he put this necklace on me, I was full of guilt and remorse for him, and I thought I was sorry for his love and dedication to me. What was he thinking at the time? I guess it all doesn’t matter now. I slowly stretched my hand out of the car window, my fingers loosened, and the necklace fell silently to the ground. How ironic, turns out when you lose something you once treated as the greatest treasure, the process could be so short and silent. Without looking back, I drove away. Goodbye to all those wonderful and dreamlike moments, and goodbye, Athan Buffay…. The whole morning, I was distracted. When I burned the second French toast, Diana took over the pan and asked me to sit with the kids. I couldn't help rubbing my forehead. I don't feel sleepy, and werewolves don't need to sleep all the time. However, I felt so tired, even breathing and movements made me feel exhausted
“Katherine, you don’t look well, you should get some rest. ” Diana handed me a cup of steaming tea, and then took the kids out. A huge sense of loneliness enveloped me. It suddenly occurred to me that the words my mother had told me before she died, she told me to never lose hope of love because of her marriage, and she said that I would eventually find my happiness. I was too naïve to believe that, but turns out I let her down. I put down the tea and walked out the door. The tea was not I needed at the moment. An hour later, I arrived at the alley behind the bustling commercial street, in front of me is a closed iron gate. “Mona, where are you?” . I waited for a few seconds, but she didn’t reply to my mind link. Suddenly, the iron door was opened from inside, and Mona walked out. “What’s with the long face?” Mona pouted and wrapped her arm around my shoulder, “come on, let’s get you drunk. I never thought there was a 24/7 bar tucked away in the city center. Outside the iron gate was the clear sky and a newly awakened city, but inside the gate there were only dim lights and drunk people. The moment I walked into the door, I felt as if I had traveled to another world. “I didn't expect you to live here for so many years without knowing this place. ” Mona laughed and snapped her fingers at the bartender, “two whiskey on the Rocks. “How do you know this place?” I was surprised how familiar she was with the place. Mona shrugged, “I only knew it through a friend, It is said that this bar is very hidden, especially upstairs,” she pointed at the ceiling and said: “only the powerful can enter. I couldn't help but follow her gaze to the closed door above the stairs. I never imagined that such a place could exist
This place literally shut out the real world, and people in it just needed to indulge in pleasure and forgot their troubles. I chugged my drink, glass after glass, and soon I felt dizzy. I didn't like the taste of liquor, but I relied on the ease brought by alcohol. “Katherine, your necklace…” Mona asked softly. I smiled at her and shook my head gently, "That's something that didn't belong to me, not from the beginning. She nodded knowingly and didn't ask any more questions. "Cheers, you still got me, girl. The alcohol quickly got me drunk, I stood up and staggered to the bathroom. Mona wanted to stand up and accompany me, but I waved my hand and refused. In the bathroom, I splashed cold water on my face and finally regained some clarity. I looked at myself in the mirror and thought it looked too ridiculous. "pull yourself together, Katherine Green," I said to myself. I took a deep breath and opened the door. Mona seemed to order another round of drinks and she beckoned to me. I was about to walk over, but my view was blocked. Several men in black walked down from upstairs and walked straight out, blocking my way. I couldn’t help but look at the exit, only to notice a familiar figure, was that. Markus?. I almost couldn’t believe what I just saw, if that man was really Markus, was he here too?. Suddenly I got a tap on the shoulder, and a gentle voice came from behind me: "Katherine?"
