Predatory Marriage — Chapter 139. Sincerity
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Regan
With those words, all her terrible thoughts disappeared like melting snow. Sheer relief sent out a fresh flow of tears. Ishakan had thought they had finally begun to subside, and didn’t know what to do with the new flood. The normally eloquent man couldn’t say anything, as if he had lost his tongue. He just held Leah silently.
Leaning against him, she cried with all her strength. It had been a long time since she had been able to cry so freely. It was almost the first time she had ever cried openly, rather than quietly in the corner of her bedroom.
How much had she cried? It felt as if she only stopped when she finally ran out of tears. Ishakan kissed and caressed her the whole time.
“Leah,” he said softly.
She looked up at him, her wet eyelashes fluttering. Ishakan met her eyes directly.
“If you come back…” He whispered slowly, “You’ll really die this time.”
She felt an eerie sensation inside her chest. She knew he wasn’t lying to try to hold her back. There was no doubt what Cerdina would do. Even if she didn’t kill her, it might leave her in the same condition as the King.
“I’ll free you from the spells somehow. Please…” Ishakan laid his forehead gently against hers and rubbed her nose with his. “Stay with me in the desert.”
She’d heard it several times before. Leah blinked, her eyelashes brushing his cheek. In this place, where even their breath mingled, he waited for her response.
Nothing had been resolved. She could still put him in danger. But Ishakan said he would take care of that. The man before her could definitely survive. He would protect her no matter what threat or danger came her way. She wanted to believe him.
All this time, she had forced her lips to speak words contrary to the wishes of her heart. Finally, she could tell the truth.
“I will…” Hesitating, she carefully kissed his lips and then withdrew. His eyes widened. Looking into those golden eyes, their pupils dilated, she continued, “…I will stay at your si….”
But she didn’t finish. Ishakan gripped the the back of her neck and brought their lips together eagerly. A hot tongue entered her mouth and licked every part of her, rubbing over each of her teeth, stroking tenaciously over her soft palate. A moan escaped her.
At her little moan of pl3asure, his kisses only intensified. Her body slowly fell backward at his ardor and soon she was lying on the bed with Ishakan on top of her, kissing her hungrily. His hands kept caressing her. He touched her beautiful hair, stroked her cheeks, massaged her shoulders. She was immersed in the torrent of affection she was receiving.
She could barely hold onto his shoulders. She could feel the firm muscles under the palms of her hands, and she ran them along his sturdy collarbones and hard neck, reaching to embrace his thick body. The chain dangled beside her outstretched hand.
“Leah, Leah…” In a low voice he repeated her name over and over. She shuddered every time she said it. A strange sensation tingled in her lower abdomen. When she lifted her lips unconsciously, Ishakan slid his arms behind her and hugged her tightly to him, as if he had been expecting it. Their minds clouded as they continued kissing passionately.
Suddenly, she felt a warmth against her thighs. Now she knew exactly what that was, hardening. Ishakan didn’t try to hide his excitement. He pressed his manhood against one of her thighs and Leah unconsciously rubbed herself against the thigh thigh between her legs. As a moan of pl3asure escaped her, Ishakan frowned and lifted his head.
“Ahh…A problem may occur if this continues.” He gently bit her cheek, which was tinged as red as a ripe peach. “Have you ever heard that a beast and a Kurkan have the ability to control themselves?”
She shook her head and he smiled, licking her lips.
“If we continue, with the current condition of your body…” He murmured. But in spite of his words, it wasn’t easy for him to withdraw. With a disappointed expression, he kissed her face and neck and shoulders all over. She didn’t reject his kisses. Deep in her heart, she wanted to pretend it wasn’t true, and finish what they had begun. But she knew better than anyone that her body wasn’t in normal condition. She didn’t know what damage could be done if she had s3x with Ishakan.
Ishakan bit and sucked her for a long time before he rose to grab a cotton cloth. As he wiped her face and body, he suddenly stopped. His eyes fell on her wrist.
Quickly, he removed the leather cuff. Despite the loose grip and the soft cloth inside the leather, a red mark remained on her wrist. It was nothing serious, and looked like it would heal quickly. Ishakan looked at the reddened wrist and lifted it to his lips.
