''I was just wondering what the midsummer celebration is that everyone is talking about?'' I answer.
Roan looks at me and says, ''Ow yeah. Every year we celebrate midsummer the lightest day of the year. We have a ceremony where we bless the crops with magic.''
I go sit on his desk and reply, ''Sounds fun, what happens at the ceremony?''
Roan gets a bit red when he answers, ''Well it's a fact that with sex a lot of magic comes free. Traditional the King opens the feast by having sex with a virgin by choice in front of everyone. Afterward, everyone will look for a partner and also have sex. ''
''So who are you gonna have sex with this year then?''I ask.
Roan looks a bit unhappy when he answers, ''I would want to do it with you but it's not the most romantic setting. It has to happen on the sacrifice altar and everyone is watching of course. That's maybe not what you want for your first time.''
The thought of that does not make me very happy indeed so I answer, ''No I don't think I can do that after the attack from those dark humans it would remind me too much.''
My heart drops a bit when I ask, ''So you are gonna have sex with someone else in front of me?''
He takes my hand and says softly, ''I don't want to but the ceremony has to be opened it's tradition. I am sorry Noelle.''
I pull my hand back and grunt, ''I don't know or I want to be there then.''
I feel tears coming up so I walk out of the door. Roan calls my name but I don't wait for him to come after me.

The king of the Sea is rumoured to be a giant man with no kindness in his heart. Every year he selects an 18 year old virgin but no one has ever returned. Noelle has no idea why she got picked and what will happen but she sure as hell knows that no one can put out the fire in her heart.
