The Tamed Heiress - Chapter 9
The doctor glanced at the wound on Dana’s neck and said to Leon.
“I want to talk about the rest of the story outside.”
When Leon tried to leave, Dana grabbed one of his fingers tightly. He looked at it in a daze.
“It’s weird to look for me so blindly.”
“It’s also relevant. As soon as she opened her eyes, she just followed the first person she saw. It’s like a baby duck recognizes its mother as the first thing it sees.”
“…Mom, that’s a little difficult.”
Leon raised the corner of his smirking mouth and pulled out his caught finger. Then, he beckoned the woman to stay for a while and went out of the room with the doctor.
“She was strangled and fainted, and the first thing she saw when she woke up was a maid, not me.”
“Have you never met her before?”
Leon leaned obliquely against the wall outside the door and thought for a moment about the doctor’s question. The night he saved her, he remembered making eye contact in the bathroom.
“…she saw me for a while in her sleep.”
“Then that’s the first scene she remembers now.”
Leon nodded slowly once, as if he knew it.
“There are signs of strangling the lady, but her memory may have been messed up while the air was out for a while. If you add a mental shock to that, you can have enough symptoms like that.”
However, there was little a doctor of this era could do about aphasia caused by mental shock. After giving conventional advice just to relax her mind and body, he was away.
Leon entered the room, scratching the back of his head. A maid was seen contemplating whether to dress her or not.
“Leave it and go out.”
When Leon was seen, Dana’s gloomy expression became noticeably bright. She smiled at Leon with a look of knowing nothing.
“… I wonder if she knows her situation.”
Leon shook off the woman’s clear eyes while reflecting on her reflection for a while earlier. Then, he walked to her and sat on the bed.
Eyes went on her bare-skinned shoulders, and he tried to turn to his eyes.
“I can’t believe you understand me. Listen carefully. I will take care of you for the time being because I have the responsibility of the one who saved you, but I can’t take care of a woman whose identity is unknown forever.”
Leon was dealing with her in a harder way than usual. It wasn’t easy to understand, but he decided to understand his instinctive part toward her.
‘It’s dangerous if I keep it going.’
Even now, his hand tried to bounce out of the desire to touch her. This sudden longing for someone he doesn’t know has never been experienced before.
As if to prove him, his chest was also shaking as if the tears in her blue eyes were about to overflow.
‘It’s a desire for flesh; it’s just an instinct for a moment.’
Leon, who lived a thoroughly ascetic life, was convinced of his changes but tried to dismiss them as nothing.
However, perhaps because he admitted it that way, his tone became softer.
“So… At least try to speak. Then I’ll consider it a little bit more. As long as you want.”
As his attitude eased, Dana, who had been reading the air the whole time, hugged Leon as if leaning on him. Leon tried not to show as much embarrassment as possible by holding her shoulder and removing it while inhaling. She was still naked.
“…I’ll have to dress you up.”
Leon picked up the clothes that the maid left behind. It was a white and thin pajama with a flower lace.
“I didn’t know there was such a thing in this house.”
Was there a person in this mansion who was going to wear this? Thinking, he found the hole in the clothes and put it on Dana’s head. When the top of her round blonde head popped out, she smiled gently again.
Leon glanced at it, sighed silently, raised one arm, and put it in the sleeve to finish.
She left her hand behind the head, stuck in her clothes, and pulled her hair out. In a sky-blue, white dress, blonde hair drenched in the light of the sun came down.
In a very short moment, her expression when she acted on her own looked like an arrogant lady. Leon, who saw it, slanted his red eyes and raised the corners of his mouth at an angle.
“I’m definitely curious.”
When he opened his mouth, Dana went back to the expression of knowing nothing and opened her eyes wide and looked at him.
He lifted her chin lightly with one hand. And this time, they kissed without hesitation. Dana came into his mouth with her eyes closed, and he naturally accepted her tongue.
After a short, dense kiss, he stared at her in the eyes with lustful eyes.
“You don’t even resist… What you think, what you are.”
Even in his words, Dana’s blue eyes were calm and peaceful. Somehow, looking at those eyes, Leon had a fever inside. At the same time, his cruel instincts wriggled.
He grabbed a handful of her blond hair with one hand, turned her head back, and pulled her.
There was still a red hand mark on the exposed neck. Leon seemed to put his lips there, but he bit hard with his teeth.
When Dana twisted her body in pain, he let go of her hair. Her body was laid down as if it were falling on the bed.
“You’d better sit back to your seat as soon as possible. Before I become sincere.”
Leon, who got out of bed, looked down at Dana with cold eyes. Then he hurriedly turned around and came out.
As soon as he left the door, he clenched and opened his fist, smiling bitterly.
He knew that. Leon’s repressed desire sometimes turned out to be an intense obsession, and what he really wanted was ruined by it.
So after that, he didn’t want anything.
‘Then run away.’
