After the call ended, Zeke stared at the phone silently for a few moments before turning to look at Lucas.
"You heard it. Go prepare for the trip." He ordered and the man immediately nodded and left the dark room. "As for you," he glanced over at the young man who was now drinking a glass of blood as well as he leaned quietly against the wall.
Kyle lifted his gaze as he sipped from his glass and looked at his brother, waiting for what he was going to say.
"It's time for you to go to a university." He said and Kyle's eyes narrowed. He? Attend a university?
"University of …?" Kyle prompted his brother, not able to guess what he was planning this time.
Surprise etched itself on Kyle's face.
"You want me to attend a school for humans and it's a school outside of our Kingdom?" he asked, mouth hanging open in shock. He could not believe what Zeke had just said. What was he up to? Was there anything that he could learn better in attending a university meant for humans?
"Yes. I've already chosen the school you're supposed to attend, and everything's already prepared. You'll be staying in a dormitory in campus, and you are not allowed to go anywhere else unless I say so. And when I mean anywhere, that means you are to stay right there within campus at all times." Zeke said in a calm yet absolute voice. "It's time for you to learn to blend in with the humans – humans who do not know about vampires. Humans who are not aware we even exist. This is part of you carrying out your responsibility."
Kyle's grip on his glass tightened but before he could shatter the glass, he clamped down on his emotions and let out a heavy breath. He hated this. It totally sucks being controlled like this. But he knew this was just how it was for them. In the past months, Kyle had learned a lot of things, going along with his brother and helping out in his tasks. He had seen many things that had really opened his eyes, and even more so, his mind. The reality of this world was not as clear-cut and straight forward as he had used to think. Though he knew that it was cruel to many, but now he has come to see how much worse it was. It was far worse, and far more complicated than he could ever imagine. He never thought that this world which was being ruled and dominated by humans was not as simple as he once thought it was.
He knew better now and that was why he could only obey even though he felt very unreconciled about it. Because as his brother had mentioned, this was his responsibility. He also knew that Zeke had already attended universities many times in his long lifetime, even his older brother Kai had also attended many schools as well. As for him, this will be his first time attending a school and trying out living like a normal human and studying too.
"Also, there will be rules that you need to familiarise yourself with before going off to school." Zeke's voice pulled his attention from straying and Kyle just gulped down the rest of the blood left in the glass. He knew Zeke's 'familiarise yourself with the rules' meant that he basically had to have all those rules at his fingertips and down pat. He just pressed his lips as he continued listening to Zeke's instructions. "I'll send someone to educate you about the rules and everything else that you need to know while I'm away."
When Kyle did not respond, Zeke walked past him but stopped when he reached the door that Raven opened for him. "I will be the one to send you to your new school. We'll depart as soon as I am back from settling this." He said and then he left.
Kyle let out a sigh and threw his head back. He thought that this must be for the better. He knew schooling would take years. Meaning, he could not leave that place for years until he was finished with his studies. Perhaps this was in itself, a blessing in disguise. This way, maybe he will be able to forget about her during his long stay there. He could only hope. As he was the only one left there, he dared to let out a tired and lonely sigh.
When Zeke's private jet landed at the airport, a chauffeur sent by Kai immediately came running to receive the man. There were only two of them. Zeke and Lucas.
As soon as Zeke and Lucas were seated in the luxurious sedan, the car immediately accelerated.
"What do you think happened?" Lucas asked, curious and a little excited. It had been months since they had last seen Alexander. And it was because the man had never stirred up any trouble. Somehow, the past months after the battle with Zeres had been the most peaceful ones in many years. And the reason was because the troublemaker Alexander was no longer a troublemaker. So, it really came as a big surprise – especially to Lucas – that they suddenly received such a strange request related to him this time.
Zeke did not reply. He just looked out of the window as if he was leisurely watching the city pass them by as the car sped on.
Finally, the car came to a stop. Lucas' mouth hung open the moment he stepped out of the car and surveyed his surroundings. As he looked at the green cross plastered on the building before them, he could only stare wide eyed.
He then turned to look at Zeke and the expression on the man's face showed that he already knew what was going on.
Suddenly, Zeke turned around as though to get back into the car when a hand clamped down on his shoulder. Someone actually stopped Zeke! It was Kai.
"Don't leave right after arriving, Zeke. Geez! Don't make this any harder for me than it already is." Kai said as he moved to put his arm around his brother's shoulder.
Zeke threw him a sharp gaze.
"I haven't seen you in months and this is how you look at me? But never mind. Just come inside. Quickly. Don't worry, I promise you will be seeing something that might… highly entertain you once you're inside." Kai said while laughing merrily as he led the man inside the hospital. Lucas could only trail along after the two men.
