I Became the Monster's Bride - Chapter 101
Tea Party and Lorschel (15)
Roelin stared at his golden gaze and slightly turned herself away. A table that was all covered with flour came into her line of sight.
……and the moment when she saw the other table behind it, Roelin’s head instantly tilted.
“Oh, that… I messed that up.”
Kergel, who noticed where her gaze had headed, scratched the back of his head with an awkward expression on his face while pondering, seemingly serious himself.
“I don’t know if there’s a problem with the oven, but it came out undercooked or burned black.”
And just like his excuse, all the snacks that got piled up on the table were either undercooked or burned black.
She could now guess how long he had been spending making this Lorschel’s snack in this kitchen alone.
—to ask for the night.
Roelin’s lips trembled. She wondered what kind of man was utterly so foolish.
He shouldn’t have grunted all alone just to make snacks that he had never made before, but he could just say it himself.
They were already married. So was the fact if he were to say that he’d like to sleep with her. There was no justification to stop him at all.
Who could even stop it?
And here, the Emperor of Seroif who truly wanted it.
No, after all of that, they had already checked with each other’s minds, so they wouldn’t have to do such a hassle anyway.
Nevertheless, this man was suffering for nothing just because he couldn’t say a word.
The heart was foolish and grateful, but on the other hand, really affectionate.
“……If you want, you can.”
So, Roelin answered in a low voice with her head down. Kergel paused before he came closer to her. Then, at a distance that was close enough to reach each other’s breath, he began to ask in a low, sinking voice.
“Can you tell me one more time what exactly that you just said?”
“………the night, you can ask for it.”
He seemed to possess such superior physical abilities and senses than ordinary people. In fact, other people had used to say that while she even saw it with her own eyes many times already.
He even showed such amazing abilities that made her think it was strange sometimes.
Therefore, no matter how soft she muttered, he must have understood her clearly.
Nevertheless, he still asked her to say it again……
At that moment, Kergel overlapped his lips against Roelin’s. Roelin was surprised by the sudden touch of another person’s lips and tried to back away without her realizing it.
But before Roelin could withdraw herself, he first pulled her around and instantly hugged her while locking her in his arms.
“That word… You know what you just said and you won’t take it back, right?”
After taking his lips off of her, Kergel opened his mouth at Roelin. His gaze at Roelin was incredibly intense as if it wanted to swallow her whole at any moment.
At that persistent gaze, Roelin suddenly felt a sense of thirst and gulped down. It was just that—an inadvertent act of thirst.
But for Kergel, it seemed that her behavior was a sign.
He kissed her once again. And unlike a while ago, Kergel’s kiss continued even deeper and longer. Roelin subsequently reached out and clung onto his clothes tightly.
His touch was as hot as his heated breath. Roelin could already feel the man’s heat from the touch of her shoulder and the sweep down her back.
Roelin felt a tingling sensation through her skin wherever he had touched and only managed to call him out when Kergel had taken off his lips. Nevertheless, Kergel still pulled her back into his arms.
“No, I told you that you can no longer take it back.”
He buried his lips on the back of her neck as he declared his resolve in rejecting before he could even listen to Roelin. He looked so impatient that he, himself, wondered how he had been holding it in. Roelin shook her head while still Kergel’s arms as she took his arm.
“To the bedroom…… I was trying to say let’s go.”
She continued while patting him on the arm as if she was soothing him.
“You can never know who will come over here.”
Kergel’s golden eyes were filled with heat before they became clear as if they had finally regained some reason. Of course, both of them knew that it was only temporary.
He looked down at her hand which was holding on to his arm. The tips of her small fingernails were trembling in his eyes.
He could now see that the feelings his companion was experiencing had been quivering a little bit.
Only then did Kergel realize that he had been too hasty. He had momentarily lost his reason due to the desire which he had endured was already soaring arbitrarily.
Everything must have been scary and unfamiliar since they never even had a first night, but he still wanted to covet such a person in this very kitchen.
‘Crazy. I must be out of my mind.’
He should have been grateful that she didn’t run away in surprise. He suppressed the heat that had been coming up from the bottom and took a couple of breaths before he finally looked at her.
Roelin peered at Kergel as she awkwardly avoided his gaze when their eyes met. Kergel saw that her face had flushed red as he immediately held her in his arms.
“Ah! Ke, Kergel! What are you doing?”
Roelin, who suddenly clung onto him as her legs floated in the air, screamed in surprise before hugging his neck reflexively.
“What am I… You were the one who said, let’s go to the bedroom.”
Kergel opened his mouth with a soft chuckle as if Roelin, who had hugged his neck, was just so cute. Her heart was pounding and it was being delivered directly towards him.
He brushed against Roelin’s hair. Then, Roelin eventually calmed her surprised heart and kept blinking.
Roelin’s face flushed red once again. She leaned her heated face against him and exerted more strength on her arms, which was still clinging onto his neck.
That was a silent permission.
And it was also her shy answer.
Kergel’s arm that held onto Roelin tightly eventually intensified itself.
