She called carefully, but there was no answer.
Lelia walked towards the bedroom.
Then she saw a silhouette sticking out of the bed.
Approaching with a sigh of relief, Kalix was sleeping with his eyes closed.
[Is he really sleeping?]
Just in case, she tried to call him in a small voice, but Kalix didn’t move. He must have really fallen asleep.
She couldn’t believe he was already asleep.
[Were you tired? Or was it because of the snow?]
[Since you can’t see in one eye, you must be more tired than the others.]
“He never shows any pain or hardship on the outside, so this is how he recovers his physical strength.”
Lelia sat on the bed with pity and stroked Kalix’s forehead.
When she touched his soft, black hair, she could see that the wrinkled forehead became more comfortable. The sound of breathing was also silent.
[Let’s just come back tomorrow.]
Lelia tried to get up like that but paused.
Kalix’s lips, which were tightly sealed, caught her eyes.
At the thought that this could be a good opportunity, Lelia gulped.
She immediately pressed the menu window to see if the update was complete.
- Large update complete! Would you like to check the details of the update right now? ٩(*•̀ᴗ•́*)و
With sound effects, pop-up windows began to appear in front of her.
She pressed the No button and made all the screens disappear for a moment.
[The game update is complete. If you kiss me now, I’m sure the item will apply.]
Lelia’s eyes turned to the lips of the sleeping Kalix.
Once the thought appeared, she kept thinking this was the way. She thought this was a chance.
[Yeah, I’d rather do it secretly when he is asleep. Then I don’t have to explain it complicatedly, do I?]
As Romeo said, Kalix only saw what he wanted to see and believed.
Rather than telling the truth right now, it could be better for him to slowly notice or confess all at once later.
Lelia belatedly accepted what Romeo had said earlier and shook her head.
[Yeah, let’s do it now.]
[I’m sorry to Kalix, but…]
[T/N: Sorry for what? >.>]
[PR/N: -_- Bad Lelia.]
Lelia hesitated for a while and then slowly lowered her head down.
When she saw Kalix’s clear features getting closer, she heard her heart pounding.
[I think my heart is going to wake him up.]
It occurred to her that she should not drag this on any longer.
Lelia closed her eyes tightly and stuck out her lips.
It was embarrassing to hear the sound of their soft lips touch each other.
Lelia did not hesitate for a second, and as soon as their lips touched, she immediately lifted up.
[I can’t believe I really did it…]
[I’m so sorry, Kalix…]
Lelia left the dark room straight away in case Kalix woke up.
Her heart pounded like a person who had committed a great crime.
[I’m going to go back quickly and make sure the item was properly obtained.]
About 30 seconds after Lelia got out.
Kalix, who was holding his breath, jumped to his feet.
It was dark, but his face was ripe red. It was so hot that his head felt dizzy.
“What, is he crazy… What is this…?”
Kalix took a deep breath and put his hand on his chest.
Boom, boom, boom.
‘Heart… if it beats this fast, would I die?’
No, that wasn’t the point right now.
Kalix smoothed his lips that Lelia had touched.
It was just so strange. What the hell is this…
He pretended to be sleeping because he was afraid he’d bother him again. He never imagined his lips would be taken away.
Kalix let out a painful groan, disheveling his hair.
‘If this is a dream, I want to wake up right away.’
However, pinching his cheeks and pulling his hair proved this was reality.
‘Is that perv really crazy?’
He felt uneasy from the moment Lelia touched his hair. He thought it was strange that the touch felt so itchy and burning.
His heart pounded and his stomach felt weird when he thought of the feeling.
‘Why the hell…?!’
Kalix was seriously troubled.
He should have grabbed that crazy guy by the collar as soon as his lips were touched. He was so surprised that he couldn’t move.
“Maybe it wasn’t our lips that touched. Then what was it?”
The soft and soft feeling must be…
Kalix frowned between his eyebrows. It was clear they were lips.
“My first kiss is from a boy. The same guy!”
He was a male bachelor who had never even held a woman’s hand properly.
It’s not like he has any specific convictions. It’s just that it’s hard and uncomfortable to treat women.
But that didn’t mean he wanted to kiss a man.
When he realized that his first kiss was taken away by a boy, he felt like everything was stolen.
But the weird thing is…
He felt like he should bring him in right away and put a fist in his face.
It’s normal to be disgusted…
Kalix swallowed his saliva.
Far from disgusting… his mouth felt dry.
‘Are you crazy?’
He jumped up and gulped down the water from the bedside table.
When he drank the cold water, his head seemed to clear up a little.
Wandering nervously around the room, he cleared his head.
‘Did he like me a long time ago?’
When he thought of that, he suddenly got goosebumps all over his body all the way to the tip of his toes.
All the puzzles are in place!
Lelia must have liked him from the moment he first saw him.
He was nice to him from the beginning. He did a good job of calling out being his brother to Romeo.
He smiled with his eyes and acted cute.
‘Ha… that’s why? ‘Cause you like me?’
Even when he had a seizure, Lelia came in just in time.
Yeah, he followed him early on, so he could find him!
‘Is he a stalker or something!’
“That’s why he cried his eyes out.”
When Kalix was having a seizure, he recalled Lelia crying.
Lelia even made medicine for him.
‘You said you were an alchemist. So…’
The drug worked so well that he wondered where he got it…
It looked like it worked so well because it was a handmade medicine with deep love. Love hasn’t been a cure for everything since ancient times.
Even when Lelia tried to leave him, she gave him a huge amount of medicine.
How heartbroken it must have been to leave him behind.
He touched his forehead with a serious look on his face.
It was him who finally settled down and came back to him.
When they met again, his heart tightened when he thought of Lelia’s eyes looking at him.
Somehow, he felt glad to see his big eyes.
And the faint longing.
‘What the hell are you doing to me? What are you going to do with the same guy?’
Kalix pounded his head against the wall in frustration.
Even though he tried to stop thinking, he kept thinking of Lelia.
Lelia’s face, who noticed his left eye was blind after meeting again.
When he was surprised thinking he was about to kiss him all of a sudden.
He couldn’t believe that he noticed the condition of his eyes that no one knew. How the hell?
‘Fate, something like that…’
His teacher, who raised him as a mercenary, would sometimes bring children fairy tales to read.
Little Kalix grumbled about who was reading this, but read it once before going to bed.
In the fairy tale, there was a lot about fate and stuff. At that time, he was just laughing at it…
‘Is there really a destiny?’
Kalix frowned between his eyebrows.
The heart, his heart, was strange. It’s not just beating hard, it’s almost painful. He felt a beautiful pain as if it was tightening.
‘How much do you like me, man…?’
How hard it must have been since he didn’t know.
‘Then what were you going to say in your confession earlier?!’
A moment ago, Lelia grabbed him and tried to say something.
“… No, that’s not it. Actually, I have a confession to you..”
That was the confession!
‘You spoke in such a desperate voice that I didn’t notice..’
Kalix put his forehead on the cold wall and closed his eyes. It was a confusing night.
On the other hand, Romeo looked at his two friends with somewhat angry eyes while Lelia was stealing Kalix’s first kiss.
Unfortunately, Oscar and Griffith were fighting with their bare fists.
Under Romeo’s suggestion, the two decided to fight purely with their fists no sacred power, dark power and weapons.
Romeo suggested a light duel because he thought this wouldn’t lead to a big fight.
“Can you do that? He’s nothing without that power.”
“You, too, are not even sacred enough.”
The two men provoked each other with their eyes shining.
As a result, Griffith and Oscar had similar wounds and moved away from each other.
Romeo eventually stepped up to the seemingly endless fight.
“What do you think? You’re both a little relieved now, aren’t you?”
Romeo clicked his tongue. Rather, the two stared at each other with even more fiery eyes than before.
“Stop fighting! Why the hell are you fighting? How upset would the captain be if he knew! I’m gonna show you how close I am to telling him! I’m sure you have a lot on your mind.”
When Lelia’s nickname came out, their eyes began to shake like a lie.
“You are not gonna get away with it if he finds out that you two punched each other. He will cry for a few days because he will be upset. The gentle captain would blame himself… Oh, my God.”
Romeo said deftly, grabbing the bridge of his nose with his thumb and index finger as if he was sad just thinking about it.
It looked ugly, but Romeo was right.
Oscar and Griffith weren’t this bad when they were kids. In fact, it wasn’t to this extent not long ago.
Griffith thought, pressing his throbbing jaw, ‘But he doesn’t have to know anyway, does he?’
It’s just a scar on his face, and he can heal it with his holy power.
Griffith was annoyed by Oscar, but he was willing to heal his wounds.
For Lelia’s sake.
At that time, Romeo said, “But as we promised before, you both decided not to use your power, right? So, I think it’s fair to wait for the wounds to heal naturally.”
As if they heard nonsense, Griffith and Oscar looked at Romeo.
“Both of you had better not show up in front of Lelia until the wounds on your face disappear. Or she’ll know right away that you guys had a fight.”
“Oh, friends who are violent enough to punch each other. How disappointed would the captain be with you? He doesn’t like violent men.”
Romeo spoke ill of them for some reason and pushed them to go back to the room.
