Rejected the Demon’s Marriage Proposal Thousands of Times - Chapter 54.1
Get to Know Each Other (1)
Anna didn’t know how much time she had left. At present, it seemed that the patience of this demon was not bad. As long as she coaxed him a bit, and dangled a carrot in front of him, she had time to slowly develop…
However, this demon wasn’t stupid, he was just lacking a piece of information—the most important information—-so he could only be played in the palm of her hands. So, as long as he didn’t know that she knew of his motives from the very start, then this “game” could still go on.
She probably couldn’t delay long enough for her to level up to a five-star mage, but as long as she didn’t give up, what if there was a turn of events in the middle?
Every time she rejected this demon, he would switch bodies and try again; she also felt annoyed. So, this time, after rejecting, Anna planned to teach the demon how to court a girl.
Of course, he would definitely not succeed using the methods she taught to court herself.
Rothgarr became clear minded when Anna rejected him; he shouldn’t have been so eager.
But just now, an inexplicable intuition told him to end this matter as soon as possible, or else….. But because this was just a very vague feeling, when he realized that he was overly anxious at the moment, he completely disregarded that vague intuition.
There were still more than three months to the bet. This was enough time. What could possibly go wrong?
Plus, Anna’s reaction after rejecting him this time was a little different. Rothgarr thought that his effort to get close and curry favor with Anna, as well as saving her life this time actually worked. Although his marriage proposal failed this time, as long as he was patient enough, he would succeed the next time.
Rothgarr disagreed with Anna’s words: “I know you very well.”
“Really?” Anna curled her lips and smiled a bit slyly. “Then tell me, what is my favorite food?”
Rothgarr was silent. He did not know.
“What is my favorite color? What is my favorite number? Do I always wear riding clothes because I like riding clothes, or do I wear riding clothes because it is convenient?”
Anna asked several questions in a row, but the demon was absolutely unable to answer any of them, which made his previous statement of “I know you very well” laughable.
“So, you don’t know me. Similarly, I don’t know you.” Anna concluded. “And understanding each other is the most basic prerequisite for marriage. After understanding each other, there is personality, habits, beliefs, and if the two families are compatible; there are so many things to consider. It is not so easy to talk about marriage.”
She didn’t say the most important one, whether two people love each other or not. She felt that it was a bit dangerous to add in, and there was no point. The others were more realistic. If the demon really did what she said, then he would be kept busy enough. It would take up his energy, lest he wanted to take shortcuts and ruin someone else’s body.
Hearing what Anna said, Rothgarr’s first reaction was to frown.
Why was this so troublesome?
At least in the human memories that he possessed, the only thing about marriage was whether the family statuses were compatible. If they were, the families of both parties decided on the marriage partner.
He had always known that Anna was somewhat different from others, but were her conditions also this different? He even felt that this was like a trick, a kind of tactful rejection to make him give up.
But just when Rothgarr thought of this possibility, he saw Anna eagerly approach and say: “Raymond, although I rejected your marriage proposal, I am really touched that you put your own life at risk to save me. So I am willing to give you and I a chance.”
Rothgarr raised his eyebrows: “What do you mean?”
Anna said: “First of all, we have to start with getting to know each other, and this takes time. Although today’s experience was very unfortunate, I think these last few days doing special training outside the city was very helpful to enhance our mutual understanding of each other. If you come back in the future to hunt demonic creatures near the line of life and death again, you can call me.”
The first move was to get a free special training teacher.
Rothgarr thought that the past few days had indeed brought him and Anna closer, and so he agreed.
He initially said that he wanted to hunt demonic creatures just to find a chance to get close to her. If she liked it, then she could go as often as she’d liked.
Coincidentally, he didn’t find it annoying these two days doing special training with her, and in fact found a little bit of pleasure in it.
It would be even better if that Natalie didn’t come with them.
Rothgarr unconsciously let Anna sidetrack the conversation. He asked, “What else?”
Anna said: “Secondly, we can also read books together in the library. Exchange of academic thinking will help us understand each other’s ideas and enhance our mutual understanding.”
The second was to get a free academic teacher. Although this teacher’s teaching level was terrible, he had enough knowledge. It would be fine if she just asked the questions.
Rothgarr was really not interested in this activity that he deemed too plain, but thinking that this was one of the means that Anna said could make her agree to the basic premise of his marriage proposal, he reluctantly nodded.
Anna said: “Finally, I hope that before we get to know each other, we can get along as friends. Please don’t suddenly make this kind of proposal on any occasion.”
Rothgarr originally hadn’t planned to propose again before he was confident, so he agreed very readily.
Because this was a sudden idea, Anna felt that what she said might not be complete, but it didn’t matter; she could add more at any time in the future.
What surprised her was that she didn’t expect this demon to cooperate so well. It could be seen that…it caused a great blow to his self-confidence when she had refused his marriage proposal several times before. He was actually willing to listen to her teaching to “scheme” her.
Later, he would of course find that through so many moments of “understanding,” the relationship between the two of them would become more and more friendly and close. As for her, she would receive free teaching guidance. See, win-win!
“For now, you go and lie down and rest for a while, I will let you know when we arrive in Black Cloud City.” Anna looked worried.
The injury to Rothgarr’s body had stopped bleeding, but depleted mental power could only be recuperated slowly. Because he felt that his future plan became very clear, he was happy, and coupled with the fact that he had a terrible headache, he listened to Anna and laid down.
Anna sat across from the demon. She looked at him with one hand supporting her chin, and couldn’t help becoming distracted.
