After I Sent the Divorce Letter, My Husband Went Mad - Chapter 24
Leilia spoke as if she were running away and scurried to the bathroom.
The bathtub was already set up for washing. After removing her makeup and taking a shower, she caught her breath for a moment. Until now, her heart was racing and she couldn’t think straight.
‘What will happen to us…’
No matter how much she wanted to have him by her side, she never thought it would end like this because he had a woman he loved. She wanted him to be happy, so she was just going to support him without saying anything.
Even though she sorted out her thoughts as she showered, Leilia’s fingers trembled while gripping the robe as if her mind wasn’t quite in the right place. When she emerged from the bathroom, barely dressed, she found Cassel standing in the room, dressed in a robe.
It was as if he had been waiting for her.
‘…There must have been one more bathroom?’
“It took you a long time.”
Coming over to her, he opened his mouth softly as he ran his large hand through her long brown hair.
“It’s even better because my wife is my sponsor.”
Leilia’s eyes widened at his words.
“I couldn’t pretend to say anything because there were a lot of people watching from the outside. They don’t know that Young Lady Leilia sponsored me, and the Young Lady doesn’t seem to want to reveal your identity either…”
Cassel’s face turned red as his whispering voice tickled her ears.
“It’s okay if you treat me casually.”
She said quietly to him.
“Now, Cassel has a high status.”
Her voice seemed to tremble. Cassel then grabbed her cheek and gently pulled her to him.
“I can’t do that. You’re older than me, and you’re my sponsor.”
Saying so, his eyes were full of her. After observing her for a long time, he kissed her on the lips as Leilia closed her eyes. His breathing could be heard close by as the heat lingered on their lips.
Soon, the robe wrapped around her body fell slowly to the floor.
After the kiss, Cassel pulled her into a tight embrace Leilia stiffened at his sudden action. However, he seemed to think of it as an intention to reject it, so he comforted her.
“Do you still need to prepare your mind?”
“It’s not a rejection… it’s because I’m nervous.”
“I’m a little nervous, too, because I’m not used to things like this.”
Men in the Empire, when they come of age, would covet women in earnest and have mistresses, but Cassel has never done that… Still, he must have held a woman, right?
“It’s my first time doing something like this, so I don’t know what to do.”
“What… do you mean?”
Cassel looked at her, a little surprised.
“Are you surprised?”
“Yes, I thought Young Lady Leilia might have been in a relationship.”
Leilia smiled softly at those words.
“I’ve been confessed to, but I’ve never been in a formal relationship.”
Of course, she knew in detail in theory because she’d studied this stuff before. The next moment, he kissed her on the collarbone.
“It’s my first time, too.”
Saying so, he sucked her collarbone with his lips.
“Leilia’s body is sweet.”
“…Is it so?”
This kind of conversation was unfamiliar.
“I’m clumsy, but I’ll do my best.”
He then trailed down and kissed her on the chin, before up to the ear as well, then slowly led her to the bed and eventually pushed her down. Lying on the bed, she looked at Cassel’s face as he quietly rode over her body with his head close to hers.
She touched his cheek with her hand.
Somehow, the lighting in the room was a strange red color, so his face glowed very brightly in the light.
As she called his name, he kissed the hand that held his cheek.
That was the beginning.
It was a night she could remember vividly, even though it started out in a drunk and in a hazy mood. True to his words that it was his first time, Cassel was indeed clumsy but Leilia was also very unfamiliar, yet he was so polite and sweet.
The feel of his hot, soft body sent her into a state of confusion.
…She didn’t want to connect with him in this way.
Her head thought so, but her heart was different.
As if she had craved him for a long time, her body became hot whenever he touched her. It was as though he was hungry for his touch. And every time his delicate hands touched, her body cheered. Her body was responding as if it had been waiting for him for a long time.
Her body and mind wanted him.
Only then did Leilia realize.
If he had married another woman, it might have been very heartbreaking. She could no longer turn away from the joy of having him by her side.
‘…I love him.’
Tears welled up in her eyes.
Being so close to him and having him by her side made it seem like her heart, which was shoved down deeply, was about to explode.
