A Kind Goblin's Bird - Chapter 15
After he told her he would come to pick her up, he prepared her dowry for a short time. He came to Song Geun-ryang’s house with three carts full of gold.
“What is a grassland?”
“It’s a meadow. A huge meadow.”
Aahh. The woman seemed to close her eyes and imagine how big the huge meadow would be. Sa Heon-yeong looked down at her.
He had brought the woman and looked down at her all night. All night long, he had been engulfed in strange and eccentric emotions. He also took off the woman’s clothes himself.
Since he had never taken off a woman’s clothes, Sa Heon-yeong was a little lost.
It’s okay because they’re going to be married, right? Of course, he was her fiance. The answer to the question was quite arbitrary.
According to the law, it was out of the question. But he was reluctant to have anyone else touch her. He wanted to do it himself. So he took her clothes off himself and frowned at the woman’s scarred body.
And he carefully laid the woman down in the hot tub. And now he was washing her up.
“Don’t you have to eat? Are you not hungry?”
The woman opened her eyes and asked as if she suddenly remembered. She looked worried.
“It’s all right.”
As Sa Heon-yeong smiled lightly and continued washing her, the woman carefully grabbed his hand. Sa Heon-yeong gave his gaze to the little hand that was wrapped around him.
Hands that starved for four days. The hand that took the herb to her mouth to forget her hunger. Fragile slender fingers clasped his rough hand.
“Still, your meal…….”
“I will bathe you first.”
“I can wash by myself.”
The woman reached out her hand. She seemed to want Sa Heon-yeong to come after his meal. But for a moment he felt as if she were refusing to touch him.
Thinking about it rationally, it makes sense. What woman would be happy to have herself bathed by a man whom she doesn’t even know.
“Do you not like it?”
As Sa Heon-yeong asked that, the woman widened her eyes. Then the woman lowered her eyes for a moment and fell into thought. Not like it or not. She seemed to be contemplating, and Sa Heon-yeong became nervous. Then the woman raised her head.
“I don’t hate it.”
But, the woman added,
“I think you don’t seem to be used to it.”
“This is my first time.”
Sa Heon-yeong said so and wiped the woman’s exposed shoulder with the cloth. But, as the woman added, the voice added softly.
“It’s all my first time.”
The woman blinked her eyes and looked away.
The woman’s cheeks were red. She didn’t seem to know what she was going through.
The face that seems bewildered is as dejected as a child lost in an unknown place. She blinked her eyes quickly, as if nervously, and took a deep breath as if it was hard for her to breathe. The woman was a virgin who did not even know what this tension was.
In comparison, Sa Heon-yeong was at least a man who knew what he was doing.
He was great on the battlefield. When he was young, he had a noble status, so he could not face women recklessly. After getting a little older, rumors began to spread among the enemy army because of the goblin mask and the terrifying martial arts.
Drinking blood and enjoying human flesh was the most famous rumor. As a result, no woman wanted to be embraced by Sa Heon-yeong. Of course, if he had gone to the red-light district, he could have bought a woman, but Sa Heon-yeong was not a man with a strong sexual desire to want to embrace women. He had no interest in women in the first place.
It was the first time he was so interested. It was the first he ever acted so impulsively. He thought he was crazy. Sa Heon-yeong smiled and carefully wiped the woman’s body.
As he wiped the mud off his pearls, he thought that he liked this mad state more than ever.
The woman who ate the whole bowl of porridge drooped. Perhaps it was because she had been sitting in the hot water for a long time, there was a hot fever on her cheek. She asked, panting a little.
“Why are you doing this to me?”
“I have nothing. If it’s a song, I can sing it, but…….”
The woman said cautiously. She looked worried about why Sa Heon-yeong was doing this. The woman who is okay to be naked in front of a man is uncomfortable when he sends favors to her, who has nothing on her.
It was pitiful and pathetic, Sa Heon-yeong smiled brightly.
His hand went under the water. He began to wipe the woman’s chest past the collarbone. Sa Heon-yeong had a chill on his back, but the woman was calm. She had a face who didn’t know what it was.
“I may ask you for a favor for it once, but I don’t need it.”
The woman’s song was beautiful. Words said that if you sleep while listening to the song, she will make your wishes come true in the dreams.
However, Sa Heon-yeong had no wish to come true. The one closest to a wish in his life was innocently giving her tender breast here and now.
“You don’t need it?”
The woman who had been treated as if singing was her value all her life, widened her eyes as he said that he didn’t need her songs.
