“Thanks for telling Cedric the truth.”
Eden’s thick lips twitched and moved. Walter’s neck, staring at her, shook up and down. He’s been dry in his mouth ever since.
“Don’t just talk with words, show the truth.”
“Well…. Then I will cancel what I said earlier.”
“Are you kidding me?”
Eden brought his face closer to Walter, who frowned. Cold sweat was forming on his forehead as if the sun was hot.
“Actually, it’s a pretty useful face. Others agree that Cedric is handsome, but… To be honest, he’s too old, isn’t he? How is that face twenty? If he’s 30, I’ll admit it.”
Eden giggled and gently stroked Walter’s dry cheek with her hand. Eden’s hands caught the blood from the wound that had rubbed against her dagger earlier.
“Does it hurt?”
Walter snorted a low laugh.
“Not at all.”
Eden smiled and licked the drop of Walter’s blood from her hand with her tongue. It tasted like sharp iron.
Walter’s taste. It tastes familiar. Even the smell of his sweat and the smell of his body were all familiar to her.
“Our handsome Walter.”
After licking his blood, Eden spit it out softly, and Walter’s throat, which protruded like a peach seed, began to wriggle again. There was a slight heat rising on his face.
“… Did you just find out now?”
“I knew at first. But when I looked at your face up close earlier, you looked so cool. Last summer, when we had a hard time digging a well, I can understand why the village ladies were only nice to you.”
“… I told you not to mess around.”
“I’m not kidding. What did Aunt Katrina say? It is natural to want to give something more to a good-looking person.”
Beast-like breaths mingled like groans from his vocal cords. Eyes resembling his dark brown hair were shaking wildly. Eden hesitated for a moment, then opened her mouth, holding Walther’s face in her hand.
“Walther, by the way.”
“I have one thing I want to check with you.”
Tension slowly filled the purple eyes, which were loosely filled with light. Walter, who faced her in front of her, was also nervous as if his heart was about to explode.
“Are you going to be honest? It’s a bit embarrassing for me to even ask such a question….”
“… Just tell me.”
Walter’s low whispering voice was now barely audible. Thump, thump. His and her heart beat faster at the same time. Eden opened her mouth with a careful expression as he watched him wet his lower lip in the tension.
“The boar’s front legs are mine, aren’t they?”
Walter seemed to be at a loss for a moment, unable to answer. It was a puzzled expression.
“I thought it was mine.”
Eden clicked her tongue and slapped his cheeks with her palms, which had been locked in both hands, loudly. The ticklish air that had been rising in an instant disappeared as if cold water had been poured on it.
“Don’t even dream that I’m going to give you one. Get it?”
Walter raised his eyebrows sullenly, as if he had been hit in the back of the head. It was almost visible in real time that his stiff face was gradually becoming distorted.
“Honestly, even if you didn’t come out, it was going to die in my hand anyway, right? Fine. Well, there are a lot of ribs, so even if you share it with the other guys, you can never give up on the front legs… !”
When Walter pressed his arm around Eden’s neck, she couldn’t speak.
“Hey, hey, let it go?”
She tried to slap the veins on the bulging forearms, hit, hit, but Walter, whose anger grew to the top of his head, only gave more strength, as if revenge.
“Yes. Eat a lot and grow a lot. Huh?”
Walter’s blazing breath in anger touched Eden’s earlobe. Ah. It tickles. It was an instinctive reaction that she curled up as she tried to push him away. Suddenly, her crown tingled with excitement.
“I was the fool who thought I could have a proper conversation with you. From now on, if I look at you again, you won’t be human… you’ll be a dog, dog!”
In a low growlful whisper, he couldn’t contain his anger and chewed hard on her earlobe. A sharp scream erupted from Eden, who was startled by the sharp and hot sensation.
“Ah, it hurts!”
Without a moment for Eden to swipe her fist, Walter hurriedly jumped from the tree.
The leaves rustled and flew beside him, who landed gently without a sound.
“Hey! Where are you going!”
“I don’t want to see you, stupid, so I’m going back first.”
“Hey, you bastard, don’t you have to carry the wild boar!”
