Then, he signaled to the maid to leave the room. Emmeline grew increasingly uneasy as the two of them were left in the room. She subconsciously tightened her grip over those toothpicks. Adam noticed how Emmeline's face had turned pale. He grinned. "I don't like forcing myself on the ladies. I'd prefer it if you looked less wary of me. " "Perhaps you should leave then, Palace Lord. " Emmeline replied, "I'm sure there are even more beautiful and attractive ladies out there that are willing to serve you. Why bother wasting your time on a nobody like me?" "You're definitely not that. You're way better than all the ladies out there," Adam said. …How do I get this man to leave? I don't want to waste my time trying to argue with him anymore.

" Adam had a murderous aura about him as he turned around and headed for the door. "Excuse me, Sir. " Summer showed up by the door at that moment. Her words stopped Adam in his tracks. "What is it?" Adam asked in a stern voice. Emmeline started feeling anxious when she saw Summer. She had given the note to the masseuse earlier. I've written down only a few of the ingredients I need to make the antidote just to be safe. However, there's no telling if they may be able to see through my intentions by looking at the note. Summer stole a glance at Emmeline. Then, she reported to Adam, "The lady gave me a note and asked me to get her some herbs and ingredients.
