Perhaps she couldn’t believe it, she sprawled her body in disbelief. There was a small splash of water in the bathtub. The spray was quite similar to the storm in Sa Heon-yeong’s heart.
“Can I kiss you like before?”
Sa Heon-yeong couldn’t resist it and asked. He was talking to the woman, but his hand was on her chest. Soft flesh. The woman’s breasts were still a little fleshy compared to her skinny body. Sa Heon-yeong was holding his urge to squeeze her chest.
Was he a human being so easily swayed by illicit desire?
Sa Heon-yeong let out a bitter laugh at himself.
“Why, why are you doing that?”
The woman was not a fool. She asked, blinking her eyes. Her face looked embarrassed rather than disliked. Sa Heon-yeong looked at her face carefully and answered.
“My lips twitch all the time when the Lady speaks.”
“Because it’s so pretty. It looks sweet like candy……. Can’t I?”
If she said no, he thought he would stop.
She was Sa Heon-yeong’s woman. He has a lot of time, so he can get to know her slowly. No, it should be.
However Sa Heon-yeong was impatient. His heart was excited and the world kept spinning. He wanted to touch her. It wasn’t a matter of his lower body, he wanted her to be as close to him as possible. He doesn’t know what this feeling is. It was his first time experiencing it. But he could definitely recognize that this feeling was very intense.
Having been on the battlefield for a long time, he has a habit of always weighing victory or defeat. He didn’t seem to be able to overcome this feeling at all. This feeling was terribly strong.
“Do you not like me?”
Sa Heon-yeong knew he was cheating, but he still asked, stroking the woman’s cheek. The woman was weak against this kind of contact. As he stroked her cheek, she closed her eyes and shook her head.
“You like it then?”
“I do not know…….”
The woman was honest. Sa Heon-yeong became nervous. The fact that he was the only one who fell in love at first sight burned a part of his heart. He was going to continue with that. Then the handmaid, who was kneeling on her knees outside the door, spoke softly.
“Your Highness, Court Lady Yoon is here. She has come to see Your Highness in a hurry, what should I do?”
Court Lady Yoon.
– She is his mother’s closest aide. In other words, it means that this incident entered his mother’s ears.
Sa Heon-yeong clicked his tongue inside. He can’t make it through the day. Heck, he had a fuss last night without seeing anything in his eyes. No, it seemed to be done on purpose. This woman is mine. He wanted to shout at everyone. This intense emotion contains a ferocious and immature impulse.
“Tell her that I will greet her in the afternoon.”
With Sa Heon-yeong’s words, the woman widened her eyes.
She seemed surprised at the cold voice that was different from when he was talking to her. Sa Heon-yeong smiled brightly. Shh. When he showed his index finger to his lips, the woman did not know what it was, and she put her index finger to her thick lips and imitated it. Shh.
A little later, the handmaid spoke again in an annoyed voice.
“Your Highness. Court Lady Yoon asked for an apology for disturbing Your Highness’ rest, and she dared to prostrate and wait.”
In a word, Court Lady Yoon won’t leave until she sees his face.
It is impossible to make the Empress’ cherished court-lady prostrate in the middle of the imperial court. Sa Heon-yeong threw a distasteful gaze beyond the sliding door, and then turned his gaze back to the woman.
“I have to go for a while. The handmaids will take care of you.”
The woman’s eyes fluttered. Sa Heon-yeong smiled at her softly to reassure her.
“Make yourself at home. If you need anything, please ask them.”
It was when Sa Heon-yeong put down the cloth next to the bathtub and got up. His leg was caught and as he looked down, the woman was holding his leg. When their eyes met, she seemed to realize that she had just caught him by his leg.
Embarrassed when she saw his wet pants, she quickly removed her hand.
She muttered sullenly. He could see her lowered eyes trembling. A face as if fearful or disliked.
It was like a puppy. A puppy who can’t stand one moment even though it’s been here for a while. No, the singing was more like a bird rather than a puppy.
Sa Heon-yeong looked down at her for a moment and asked her.
“Would you like to come with me?”
She didn’t seem to hear it. Sa Heon-yeong leaned his body down and looked down at the woman. He waited a moment and then she looked up at him as if the woman felt something strange.
“I asked if you would like to come with me.”
“Is that okay?”
The woman raised her body up. The woman who got up on her knees grabbed Sa Heon-yeong’s clothes and asked again.
“Really, can I come with you?”
The pathetic eyes brightened.
…… And her scarred body.
Sa Heon-yeong was in trouble. It is the body he has cleaned. The body was exposed. The moment he looked at her body, his throat stinged from thirst.
He’s heard a lot of things like emotionless or inhumane things. He had never actually touched a woman’s body. It would be lying if he said he had never felt lust, but that was a natural sexual desire, regardless of who he was.
