Thank you Kate for the ko-fi love!
Is it because of the scent coming from her body? Last night’s wet, slippery contact kept flashing in her mind. Half out of her mind, she couldn’t see herself and Lisianthus in person, but she could imagine it. The image of a man and a woman rubbing each other’s bodies while they were soaking in a lot of slippery oil.
Anyway, it was such an e**tic scene that she was afraid someone would see her thoughts. Her waist kept bouncing and rubbing against his body while she was wrapped in his tight embrace and Lisianthus continued to whisper obscenities in her ears in a steaming hot voice.
“Adele. Lift your waist a little higher. Yes, that’s good.”
“Can you feel it? You’re drenched, Master. As your faithful servant, I will clean it myself.”
Adelaide kicked her quilt again when she recalled his smooth voice.
Crazy, Crazy! She kept mumbling the same thing. She couldn’t say anything else. Her face was so red that it was hard to find any white spot. The sound of her pounding heartbeats from under the blanket could be heard.
‘How can I face Lisian now?’
Adelaide pondered as she tore through her pillowcase. And at that moment, a knock came on the door.
Knock knock knock.
“Hey, Adela. come out.”
Fortunately, it was Caladium, not Lisianthus. But if she leaves the room anyway, she’ll run into Lisianthus. One day she will have to see that handsome face again, but she didn’t think she could bear it right now. Adelaide pretended that she was sleeping and closed her eyes instinctively. She even made a snoring sound.
“… That j*rk of a manager went out. So stop that acting that’s not even funny and come out. Eat.”
Caladium said in annoyance then walked away from the door.
Can all devils read minds? Adelaide thought seriously. Anyway, she was relieved that there was no Lisianthus. He used to go out to buy fresh ingredients himself sometimes, so today seems to be that day.
Phew. She let out a sigh of relief. Is it possible that Lisian also left because he was embarrassed to see her face?
Given Lisianthus’ sly personality, it seems unlikely.
“Haam. I slept well!”
Adelaide shamelessly walked out of the living room stretching and pretending to have just woken up. Caladium stared at her with a very dissatisfied face. Lupinus was also sitting down with a cold expression.
Ahem, ahem. Adelaide coughed and sat down awkwardly.
Caladium then slammed a plate down in front of her loudly. Four fried eggs were placed on top of the well-toasted bread. It was a protein-rich diet, but in Adelaide’s eyes, it seemed a bit overkill.
“Why are there so many eg—…”
Adelaide tried to complain but quickly closed her mouth. It was because she met his fierce eyes. They were telling her to shut up and say nothing more.
Why the temper this early in the morning? Pouting her lips, she quietly took a bite of the egg-topped toast.
No matter how ignorant she was, she was aware that the displeasure of Caladium and Lupinus had something to do with her. Although the door to the massage room was thick, those with good hearing would surely be able to hear everything. Besides, she moaned a bit too loud.
Adelaide bit her lip as her cheeks heated up again. As she felt two pairs of eyes looking at her, she suddenly remembered another voice.
“I don’t do this with other women. I stand only for you.”
Caladium’s whispered utterance to her in a rough low-pitched tone.
“I’m trying to win over my first love that I wasn’t able to do before..”
Even the voice of Lupinus, who smiled softly and confessed his love.
Gulp. Adelaide barely swallowed the food in her mouth. She hoped that the complicated emotions that were attacking her heart would go down together with the food, but unfortunately, it was not digested at all and stayed stuck in her throat.
She felt weird. She was embarrassed to see Lisianthus’ face and also to look at these two. She was becoming strange in many ways.
‘It’s just regular consumption. There’s no need to feel weird.’
As Adelaide struggled to hold the toast in her hand, she recalled the purpose of their physical contact. Yes, of course, all contact with them was just regular absorption to prevent getting an empty stomach. If she tried to attach meaning to it, her mind would naturally feel complicated.
She recalled Penelope’s advice: “Regular consumption is just regular consumption, there’s no need to have other thoughts about your prey.” Thinking of her who solved everything in a straightforward manner, her mind felt a little bit better.
Adelaide glanced away. Caladium and Lupinus were still in a bad mood.
“Uh, what are the Skeletons doing?”
She opened her mouth to stir the mood.
“They’re resting in their room. They went in after fighting with warriors earlier.”
“Do you think they’re getting along well with the new demons?”
“They seem to be a good fit. Especially with Richie the Death Knight. They probably get along well because they’re monsters who used to be humans.”
Caladium and Lupinus answered alternately.
“I see, that’s good.” Adelaide said in a voice that sounded like a dungeon broadcast.
“Hey, what is Bell doing?”
“I took him on a walk earlier. He got tired and went to sleep.”
“Is Pia in the infirmary? I don’t know if she likes the new experimental slime.”
“… Go and ask her yourself.” Caladium answered bluntly.
His eyes were dark and he looked very tired.
It was not surprising because he couldn’t sleep at all last night. The reason was simple. Hearing Adelaide’s moans, his jealousy kept boiling and he felt like he was going crazy.
It was an unwritten rule to not listen to each other at night so Caladium worked hard to block the sound by using magic. However, whether it was because of his lack of focus or his jealousy overpowering his magic, her moans continued to seep through the barrier. Because of that, Caladium realized that last night, Lisianthus had gone further than any of them.
‘F*** it, d*** it, really.’
Caladium clenched his teeth. He didn’t want to show his crude and dirty feelings to Adelaide, but in the first place, he wasn’t the type of devil who hid his feelings well. A burning rage like a ball of fire kept weighing on his head down to his throat.
He just wanted to hold her right away and force her to look at him. His hands trembled, wanting to kill all of the other b*****ds who dared to covet her.
But he couldn’t. If he made such a request, he could be setting himself up to be abandoned. Just imagining Adelaide being afraid or burdened because of him made his chest hurt. That’s why, what Caladium could only do now was to suppress his discomfort as much as possible and wait for his turn.
On the other hand, Lupinus showed a more stable appearance than Caladium. When he confessed to her, he had already expected a situation such as this to some extent. But it wasn’t all that good either. Jealousy and impatience were the same for him.
Suddenly, Adelaide cried out in a startled voice. When his name was called out of nowhere, Lupinus stared at her in anticipation. Like a dog that wags his tail no matter what his owner does to him.
Lupinus looked up at his hair calmly. His long bangs glistened in golden light and fluttered in his eyes. He reached out and grabbed a strand of his hair, and it quickly turned black again. When the colors came and went without his intention, it meant that his energy had become unstable. As if to prove this, the energy flowing from him also became jagged.
“Go to Mediar now!”
Adelaide understood his condition and told him urgently. It was dangerous if he remained in Kronatan for a long time in that state. However, Lupin shook his head resolutely, whether or not he knew her worries.
“I don’t want to.”
What did he say? Adelaide was perplexed and opened her mouth.
“What are you talking about! What if it gets dangerous? Go now!”
“I said no. Don’t worry, it’s not dangerous.”
“Can’t you see your hair color going back and forth? There are times to be stubborn and times when you shouldn’t!”
Not wanting to hear anymore, Lupin hurriedly turned his head.
How come that behavior hasn’t changed from when you were young? Adelaide smirked.
It was cute to see him sulking, turning his head like that, but it wasn’t a simple problem that could be neglected because he was cute. She pretended to be angry and said in a harsh voice.
Lupinus’ broad shoulders trembled. It was like back when he was a child and he got nervous when his full name was called.
“You can go and come back. You’re only going for a few days, so what’s wrong?”
Adelaide could not understand his stubbornness. Why was it so difficult for him to stay in Mediar for a while? She wasn’t asking him to leave for a month, he can come back after recovering enough in a few days. Why was he insisting on being so pitiful in this situation that could seriously damage his health?
As her sharp gaze pierced his back, Lupinus looked at her as if it was unfair. Then he spit out his suppressed emotions.
“Only a few days. You say that because you don’t know.”
“Those few days feel like decades to me.” He spoke in a low voice.
“Besides, it’s me today.”
“You are what?”
“It’s my turn.”
Adelaide only then realized why Lupinus was so stubborn and was speechless. Come to think of it, today was indeed Lupinus’ turn to spend the night with her.
Are you saying you won’t go just because of that, are you out of your mind? She furrowed her eyebrows. No matter how much he wanted to kiss her, his health should come first. She was about to open her mouth intending to nag even more.
“Even now, I feel like I’m going crazy because I want to suck you, whether it’s your lips or any part of your body. How can you tell me to go for ‘only a few days’?”
However, Lupinus’ bold words overtook her nagging. Adelaide’s face heated up at the sudden attack.
“Like I said, it’s my turn today, Adela. All night last night, I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to do with you today. I didn’t even m*******te because I wanted to save each drop to spray more on you. So don’t say such cruel things.”
Of the three, Lisianthus was the worst, and Lupinus was the most pe***rted. Adelaide realized this again and closed her eyes tightly.
