Chapter 1 - Part 1
Huge thanks to Crissymac for the kofi! (3/3)
There was no answer back.
Of course, the answer was obvious by just looking him in the eyes.
Lelia sighed loudly.
Well, her room is…
There was a risk of not knowing when Becky would come over.
It was because Griffith sent Becky to Lelia’s room.
But they didn’t have time during the day.
Lelia looked at Oscar with eyes that she could see clearly.
He was looking for Lelia with his dark eyes.
Instead of giving him permission verbally, Lelia lifted her hand and placed it on Oscar’s chest.
She felt his heartbeat through her palm resting on his hard chest.
Lelia carefully, untied Oscar’s top with slow movements.
The unbuttoned top fell to the floor. As soon as his thick muscular body was revealed, Oscar rushed towards her.
The first thing he did was to crash his lips on hers. Oscar lifted Lelia without withdrawing from her lips and walked to bed.
Lelia wrapped her arms around Oscar’s neck and awkwardly moved her lips in response. She was actively participating, unlike the last time, which made Oscar smile softly at Lelia.
It was a good decision to bring her here.
This place wasn’t originally made for this purpose, but there was not much difference.
This was a tower built to entrap Lelia after kidnapping her.
Oscar laid Lelia down on the bed where he tried to confine her in.
Red and swollen lips.
He imagined Lelia lying on this bed hundreds of times in the past. However, the scene in front of him was much more beautiful than the one from his imaginations.
It may be because Lelia’s eyes didn’t contain resentment and pain, but pure love.
Oscar loved it when Lelia looked at him with affectionate eyes. To the point where he wanted to lick and swallow those eyes if he could.
Oscar bent down, calling her name in a husky voice.
He grabbed her fragile wrists and fixed them in a secure position, kissing her endlessly. The sweet taste of her lips and her scent made him drunk.
When Oscar’s nose rubbed against her slender neck, Lelia twisted her body as if she was tickled.
Oscar hastily untied her clothes.
He wanted to caress Lelia’s body and kiss her endlessly.
It was good that he, more than others, saw and knew Lelia’s body and her appearance.
It was a frighteningly sweet joy to monopolize her.
The twisted sense of superiority and desire to conquer Lelia, which only he knew about, excited him.
However, beyond that emotion, deep anxiety and nervousness dominated him.
Nervousness of being abandoned. If she still had hatred and resentment in those eyes, instead of being filled with love and affection…
Only then will he ruin everything with his own hands.
Locking Lelia in a more isolated and dark place than this might end up tormenting her for the rest of her life.
It was then. Lelia, who noticed Oscar’s shaking eyes, called his name.
Red eyes looked at her.
His shaky eyes began to regain stability.
Lelia pulled her hand, which was fixed into place by his strength, out. A small, warm hand wrapped around Oscar’s cheek.
“I love you, Oscar.”
At those words, the dark imaginations that bothered Oscar magically disappeared instantly.
Instead, only deep desires remained.
Oscar hugged her, crashing his lips onto her lovely lips again.
Lelia patted and touched him to confirm her affection.
Maybe he had developed a bad habit.
He wanted to push her to her limits. He wanted to ask how much she can handle him. The desire to persistently harass and check the limits of her affection manifested.
Lelia’s acceptance of him aroused a crazy pleasure within him.
Yes, just him.
Only he can have Lelia.
Oscar looked up, licking her wet lips with his tongue.
Lelia looked at him with desire filled eyes. As usual, her pure eyes made his heart tighten.
“I love you, Lelia.”
He whispered quietly.
The moment he uttered those words of love, Lelia’s eyes were colored with joy.
Oscar hugged the soft woman and began to move freely.
As Griffith planned, if one day Lelia gets drunk on the other guys…
Oscar did not have the authority to prevent Lelia’s decision.
That fact drove him crazy.
But what was more painful was his eternal life.
Even after Lelia, and his hateful friends die, he must live eternally while missing them.
Then, Lelia raised her arms and wrapped them around Oscar’s neck.
“D*mn it…” Oscar spit swear at it in a low voice and pulled her closer.
The feeling was horribly pleasing.
Lelia, who noticed and hugged him whenever he felt fear, was lovely and affectionate.
The heart she gave to him was so ecstatic, enchanting and sweet, he wanted to die.
Their sweet time continued until dawn. Oscar washed Lelia clean, who fell asleep as if she had fainted, and returned to Superion Castle.
Unlike Hraesvelg’s tower, Lelia’s room was clean.
Oscar laid Lelia on the bed, suppressing the urge to stain even this place.
By the time the blanket was covered up to her neck, Lelia’s eyes, which had been closed, opened.
A hoarse voice called him.
After a moment’s hesitation, Oscar climbed onto the bed. He was planning to lay down next to her for a little longer.
As he climbed onto the bed, she pressed her face into his chest, as if she had been waiting.
Oscar breathed in, in a painfully happy mood.
“Oscar, I have something for you.”
Lelia, who had been blinking her eyes dazedly, suddenly got up.
Then she took something out of the bedside table drawer and handed it to him.
Oscar looked at the small bottle she handed over. It was a bottle without a label.
Lelia couldn’t answer easily and hesitated for a while.
“So this is…”
‘Why am I taking so much time?’
Oscar waited for an answer, suppressing his urge to have her lips again.
“It’s a medicine that won’t let you stay alone in this world.”
“I’m sorry, it’s poison… I mean…”
Lelia bit her lips in misery. She was probably the only one who would hand poison to her lover in the world.
She felt sorry for him but… She wanted to give Oscar hope.
“It’s a medicine that causes slow death. It’s kind of weird to say this already, but… After many years, even after everyone leaves, I can’t leave you alone…”
He breathed in and looked at the small medicine bottle.
“If you’re nervous, you don’t have to consume it. I think it’d be better to have it later just in case. Still… I wanted to let you know in advance.”
Oscar’s red eyes got wet.
In this moment, he wanted to believe in the existence of God for the first time,
If there is God in his world, it must be Lelia.
God said he loved humans endlessly and showed mercy.
Lelia saved him from hell dozens more times.
She eventually forgave him and accepted him, even though he forced her soul to repeat her tormented life. It was a happiness he had never imagined.
He wondered if he could dare to call her a god if she was the only one who kept him alive and breathing.
A small, lovely voice called him.
He seemed to be choked by a boundless mercy.
Without even thinking of wiping away his dripping tears, Oscar dug into Lelia’s arms.
“…By any chance, are you not disappointed?”
Lelia stared at Oscar with worry.
Oscar, who was clinging to her like a child, felt cute and pitiful.
But it was soon time for Becky to come.
Lelia managed to push Oscar away from her. After hesitating for a while, she whispered in Oscar’s ear as if she was telling him a secret story.
“Can we go there again later at night?”
Earlier, Oscar suddenly rushed in, so she was out of my mind to observe properly.
If he had time, she wanted to take a look and walk around leisurely.
However, Oscar’s eyes changed subtly, making it obvious that he interpreted her words in a different way.
Lelia felt wrong when she saw his eyes blur.
“That’s not what I meant. I…”
“I can let you stay there for the rest of your life if you want.”
“That’s not what I meant”.
Lelia spoke at length and tried to resolve Oscar’s misunderstanding.
However, Oscar said he would come back later at night, and gave her a meaningful look before going out through the window.
Lelia carefully entered the office of the Superion Castle.
This was because she had something to discuss with her grandfather about the wedding.
As she entered, she saw her grandfather looking at the window.
At the moment, Lelia paused. It was because she felt anxious for her grandfather.
Lelia recalled the scene of her grandfather kicking out the princes and Julianna a while ago.
The princes were also precious grandchildren to her grandfather. It must have been very heartbreaking to cut ties with them.
“Oh, yeah. My baby is here.”
Having been lost in thought, his expression changed as soon as he saw Lelia.
Lelia sat down, hiding her anxiety for some reason.
“Okay, have you been preparing well?”
“Yes, but…Grandfather, what are you worried about?”
“Is it because of Prince Cedric and Damien? If it’s because of me….”
Duke Superion’s large, wrinkled hand patted the back of Lelia’s hand.
“It’s not like that.”
“Those children may think I’m being cold-hearted. But… I don’t want to live my life in regret for losing my daughter again.”
“Even if I had raised them with my own hands since they were young, they are still the children of Emperor Perseus.”
Duke Superion tried to smile and patted Lelia on the back of her hand as if to assure her.
“Do you have any other concerns?”
Grandfather hesitated and opened his mouth.
“Lelia, the medicine you gave me last time. The medicine that can bring Elizabeth’s memory back.”
