“I’m not getting on your back!”
Daniella rolled her eyes at Mason. She had no inclination toward his hulky figure.
Her eyes sidled toward Jack. She pressed her lips together. “You–you carry me down!” she said bashfully.
Jack did not know whether to laugh or cry. However, it was true that they were making slow progress with her tagging along.
He could only walk toward her, huffing. “I can carry you down, but you owe me a favor then. Got it?”
“Got it. I’ll definitely return the favor. How could a man be so petty? It’s your privilege to be able to carry a beauty like me!”
Daniella scuttled toward Jack’s back and hopped on. “Let’s go, Young Master Jack!”
“Let’s go. What are all of you staring at?”
Jack roared when everyone was staring at him. Only then did they continue downward.
Meanwhile, Daniella’s heart was pounding wildly in her chest.
Once she knew that he was not a brigand and that he was the young master of the White family, her impression of him grew more positive. It meant that he had a pretty lofty position. He could match her, at least.
Daniella’s mind began to wander. After all, it was the first time she had met such a handsome man who showed no interest in her.
‘He’s strong too. So much stronger than the young masters I know!’
The more she thought about it, the more she realized how attractive Jack was. She looked at the scene as they trod down, her face hot. She felt that this was fate.
“Hey, you’re a member of the White main family, right?”
Daniella rested her head against his back and asked softly.
Jack answered as he strode down the mountain.
“Can’t you walk a little slower? Be considerate of me.”
Daniella pursed her lips. With the uneven mountain road, hers and Jack’s body frequently bumped against each other. Since she never dated before, she felt extremely embarrassed.
“You told me to carry you down. It’s a wonder I gave in to you. And now you’re complaining?”
Jack did not know whether to laugh or cry. “You must have been spoiled in the Cabello family and rarely left the house,” she said. “The treasure spots, the monsters, and the martial artists of the outside world will never entertain your whining!”
“You’re a psychic! I do very rarely leave the Cabello family’s house!”
Daniella smiled. “If I had never met you, I would have been a goner.”
“Really? Then are we friends now?”
Jack paused for a while. A scheme began to stir in his mind.
