Translator: Atlas / Editor: Regan
She slept deeply, without nightmares. Leah woke feeling refreshed, though she was a little startled when she opened her eyes. Her surroundings were unfamiliar, but there was also a pair of arms wrapped around her body, hugging her from behind. The man’s soft breath tickled her ear and though she was only wearing a thin nightgown and partially covered by the blanket, she didn’t feel cold at all.
Leah opened her mouth to speak, but reconsidered. After a moment’s uncertainty, she bit her lip and cautiously tried to move away. Her hands looked very white compared to the tanned skin of his arms.
Just as she was about to move away, the hands wrapped around her waist and belly moved upward over her br3asts. At Leah’s gasp of astonishment, he rubbed her br3asts and kissed the back of her neck. His deep voice spoke.
“Are you already awake?”
Ishakan was smiling at her when she turned around, his eyes slightly mischievous.
“How… long have I been asleep?”
“A little over a day.”
Fortunately, she hadn’t slept for several days this time. Slowly, she nodded. His golden eyes stared at her, measuring. She still looked a little sleepy.
Ishakan licked his lips. His gaze moved to her br3asts, her n!pples protruding through the thin nightgown. When she saw him looking, Leah covered them with her hands.
Frowning discontentedly, he rose, reaching for a nearby jug to drink some water, and then extended it to Leah. It was an inconceivable thing to do, drinking straight from a jug, contrary to all Estian manners, but Leah lifted it to her lips. Those things didn’t matter. She wasn’t in Estia anymore.
The stream of water flowing down her dry throat felt refreshing. As soon as she was finished, Ishakan kissed and hugged her, biting her lips.
“Starting today, we have to kiss five times a day,” he whispered.
“It’s mandatory, Leah,” he said softly. Leah nodded automatically, still a little dazed. “It seems my bodily fluids help with your spells.”
“You can’t do that every day, right? That’s why we have to kiss.” He ran his fingers gently over her lips. “Of course, if it’s okay with you, I can do it every day to help you.”
It wouldn’t be okay, she was still sore from the last time. If they had s3x every night, she really might die. Ishakan smiled at her reproachful expression. At that moment, there was a polite knock at the door.
“Master Ishakan. It’s urgent.” The sound of the voice made Ishakan frown, and he clicked his tongue as he rose from the bed.
“I won’t be able to have breakfast with you. I will send you food with Genin, you must eat. If you want we can have lunch together later.”
Ishakan slid into a robe and then bent to kiss her forehead, then her nose, and then her lips.
“I’d like to stay with you.” Her eyes widened, and he smiled. “But it can’t be avoided.”
He cupped her cheeks in both hands.
“I’m busy preparing a gift for you.”
