Duke, Please Stop Because it Hurts - Chapter 64
Just after he had raised his voice, he suddenly stopped talking as his shoulders winced slightly. His impatient fingers kept tapping on the table, akin to the act of breathing.
“…I’m in perfect health.”
It was an entirely different story, but Molitia still gave a quick nod. Raven peered into her wide open eyes for the first time in a while, feeling peculiar.
“I heard you have a lot of work to do, but you’re back early.”
“That’s just an exaggerated rumour. There’s not much work to do, actually.”
If Terrance had heard this, he would definitely be upset and heartbroken. He had already been scheduled to burn the midnight oil tonight on behalf of the Duke.
“You were very surprised when I suddenly collapsed before. I’ll definitely be healthy from now on. You don’t have to worry anymore.”
“You don’t actually have to be healthy.”
There was a sudden moment of silence. As soon as Molitia fixed her gaze upon Raven, he was straight away engulfed with emotions that he was feeling for the first time in his life.
“No, I didn’t want you to feel too pressured by your own health. I do care but that doesn’t really make you any better.”
He cursed at himself, who had been making a series of silly mistakes.
Was talking to her always this hard? He had no idea how it was like before.
“If one day you couldn’t avoid being sick, I will definitely bring you to the doctor who is assumed to be the best in the empire. So, don’t worry too much as we will definitely find the best herbs there are to be. You will absolutely be better again.”
“That’s too much.”
The absurdity of the continuation of those words had made her loosened her mouth.
It was her first time hearing how she didn’t have to worry too much as she had always listened to people who kept on forcing her to get better.
Molitia thought that it was a ridiculous yet heartbreaking remark. She had always expected how she would laugh if she were to listen to this but tears welled up around her eyes, instead.
Oh dear. Molitia quickly gave a smile in order for him not to notice.
“Thank you, though. I’ve never heard that kind of thought before.”
Just after a smile was painted on her face, he could no longer hold back as he put his lips against hers once again.
Her tongue got warped over her lips. The oozing saliva clung persistently to her tongue before it trickled down tenaciously from her mouth.
As their kiss grew deeper and intense, her hand quickly clutched onto Raven’s hem. At the same time, he slid his hand against her cheek. It then went down to her thin neckline before he caressed her round collarbone with his hand. After quite some time, Molitia began to feel a slight sensation in her chest.
But that was it. He pulled apart from her lips after he had neatly planted a light kiss.
Molitia breathed lightly with a flushed face. She seemed to see an illusion how his face was quite red as well.
“Just take a break. I’ll be out for a while.”
“But you just got home?”
“That’s because there’s some separate work to be done at home.”
“May I help you?”
Raven gave a shout as he was surprised but soon, he began to regain his composure.
“No, no. You don’t have to. I can do it myself.”
He said and pulled her into a hug. Startled, she paused her words that were sticking to her throat as she was dropped on the bed.
“You should be sleeping soundly, my wife. It was only today that you just got up from your bed.”
Raven pulled a blanket over her. However, it didn’t end with just one. As the thin blankets were overlapping one another, Molitia looked at them embarrassedly.
“These blankets are too thick… Just one blanket is enough, really.”
He gave a strict answer.
“Have you forgotten how you caught yourself a cold just because you didn’t cover yourself enough with the blanket?”
“That is true.”
“I’ll only switch to just one layer after you have become absolutely healthy.”
Molitia then had no choice but to keep those blankets on top of her.
