-What the hell happened? – Marcus Lucius whispered. He wasn’t able to yell.
Nerva reported that as he came back after the leave-taking with Octavian, he found the red-hair man trying to rape Julia. To end the sentence seemed to be hard for Nerva. Then, Nerva reported how he hurt the offender, but he didn’t kill him. He waited for Marcus Lucius to decide what to do. Marcus Lucius came closer to Julia and looked at her. She didn’t tremble. She wasn’t scared. Her eyes were calm. Marcus Lucius didn’t dare to ask whether she was fine. Nerva didn’t dare to stand up.
