Chapter 906 Elara (Part 2)

"So your name is Elara..." Evan said while patting the little girl's head who was sitting on his lap.

"Hmmm..." Elara nodded her head hearing Evan and looked at him in confusion. "Why are you asking me my name, Father? Did you forget it?"

"Of course not, how can I forget your name? I asked because I wanted to hear your name from your mouth," Evan said with a gentle smile on his face.

"Oh!.. Hehehe," Elara didn't know why he wanted to hear her name from her, but she did not care and laughed happily.

Seeing her laughing happily, Evan felt like a scumbag who was deceiving a child. But he had no choice but to do this because he really didn't know anything about her.

Suddenly, he noticed Elara was looking at Biscuit from time to time and gulping her saliva. Whenever Elara looked at it, Biscuit, who was sitting not far away from them couldn't help but tremble.

Seeing the way Biscuit was acting and Elara's hungry gaze, he was speechless.

'This... Don't tell me she wants to eat poor Biscuit?' Evan thought inwardly and barely held back his laughter when he saw Biscuit's entire body shaking. It was clear that the rank three monster was afraid of her.

"Father."

"Hmm..." Evan looked at Elara who just called him.

"Hungry..." She said while rubbing her belly.

Evan blinked his eyes hearing her and seeing her anticipation-filled look, he felt as if his heart was melting.

Without thinking about anything, he lifted his head and looked at Biscuit with sharp eyes.

Hearing what Elara said and the way Evan was looking at it, Biscuit immediately stood up and shook its wings in their direction as if asking them to hold on for a minute. After shaking its wings for a while, it turned around and flew away from there.

"Aye!" Elara shouted in a surprised voice when Biscuit flew away from there and looked at Evan with anxious eyes.

"Don't worry, it will be back soon..." Evan said with a light smile on his face and felt confused as to what Biscuit was planning.

Earlier, he looked at it with sharp eyes because he wanted to ask it to cook something for Elara using its flames. He had many monsters' bodies inside his shadow storage so there was no shortage of food, but just before he could ask it to cook something, it ran away from there as if its life depended on it.

"By the way, Elara, for how long have you been living here?" Evan put Biscuit's matter to the back of his mind and asked in a gentle voice.

"How long..." Elara showed a confused expression upon hearing Evan and shook her head. "I don't know, it's been very long so I can't remember properly." She said in a sad voice.

Evan felt even more guilty hearing her and patted her head.

"I see..." He said and changed the subject. "So, what were you doing here all this time?"

Hearing Evan, Elara showed a proud expression and patted her chest.

"I was following Father's order and guarding that place." She said while pointing towards the pillar of light.

"Guarding that place..." Evan narrowed his eyes hearing her but asked in a calm voice. "From whom were you guarding that place?"

"Monsters... There are many monsters who want to enter there, but I didn't allow anyone to enter there..." Elara said with a proud look on her face and looked at him with an expression that was saying 'Praise Me.'

Evan smiled when he saw this and nodded his head. "Elara is the best."

"Hehehe..." Elara smiled happily when she heard Evan and snuggled closer to him.

'Guarding and Monsters, huh,' Evan looked towards the pillar of light and narrowed his eyes.

"Do you know what is inside that pillar of light?" He asked after a moment.

Elara shook her head hearing Evan and said in an uncertain voice. "You told me to never enter inside the pillar of light so I don't know what is inside it, but... whenever I go close to that pillar, I feel something calling me."

"Something calling you..." Evan raised an eyebrow hearing Elara because he was feeling the same. Although this feeling was very vague, he could feel something inside the pillar was calling him.

He looked at the little girl who was sitting on his lap and felt the same. Just like the pillar of light, he was getting the same feeling from Elara as if she was part of him.

When he felt her heavy blackish-red aura for the first time, he got the feeling that he found a part of himself that had been missing for a long time.

"Father," Evan came out of his thoughts when Elara called him while pulling his sleeves.

"What's wrong, Elara?" He asked while raising an eyebrow when he saw her expressions were a bit unnatural.

"Are you... Are you planning to go there?" She asked in a low voice while looking at the pillar of light.

Evan was a bit confused because of her unnatural expression, but he still nodded his head because he was planning to go there.

Seeing him nodding his head, Elara became nervous and she said in a low voice, "Can you not go there?"

Hearing her, Evan didn't answer immediately and looked at her calmly. After a few seconds, he opened his mouth and asked, "Can you tell me why you don't want me to go there?"

"I—" Elara hesitated hearing Evan, but seeing his calm look, she took a deep breath and spoke in an uncertain voice, "I don't want you to go there because I feel like if you go there I will lose you once again."

Evan raised an eyebrow hearing Elara, but soon a gentle smile appeared on his face.

"Are you worried that the monsters who gathered there will hurt me?" He asked with a smile on his face.

Elara didn't say anything hearing Evan and just looked down.

Evan shook his head when he saw this and said while patting her head, "Don't worry about the monsters, they won't be able to hurt me."

"Really?" Elara asked while raising her head.

"Really..." Evan nodded his head with a confident smile on his face.

Elara sighed in relief when she heard Evan and a smile appeared on his face as well.

Evan was about to continue his conversation with Elara, but he suddenly felt Biscuit's presence.

He lifted his head and looked towards the sky, but upon looking at the sky, he was completely speechless. "This stupid bird..."
