No, in the first place, will he be able to understand?
As I kept thinking, I wondered what happened to Rosé Artius, the real owner of this body, and what happened to my current body.
Finally, the last of Rosé’s memory was a tilted view as though she was falling, and then after that, it’s blank.
Anyway, it was dangerous to continue this story further.
“Prince, it’s time to take off your clothes.”
Before he could reply, I grabbed the front of his shirt with both hands and undressed him. Not even giving a warning like this preceded my shame.
From his shoulders, his bare body became clearly revealed. I gulped dryly.
Even when Albert was exercising, I didn’t see him this close. All I had to do was sit at the desk and watch him exercise for just a bit.
His abs and forearms, which were clear from a distance, were such a sight to behold when seen closely. How elaborate his well-woven muscles were that it seemed as if I was looking at a statue.
Evident on his appearance was his daily lifestyle and routine because I couldn’t find any body fat at all.
With a handsome face and flawless body like this.
It’s clear that God gave Albert everything that’s needed for a male protagonist. No, even after giving him everything, those blessings continued to overflow.
Let’s calm down. I have to take care of him right now.
I stared at his body with my eyes wide open.
As expected, he was dripping with cold sweat as it soaked through his clothes.
Albert wasn’t in the capacity to go to the bathroom to wash himself, so I had to wipe his bare body.
I held a towel tightly in my hand.
“Prince, let me wipe you down.”
Ah, I forgot to ask for his consent. I hurriedly added the words.
“Um, I won’t do it if you don’t like it. You can do it yourself.”
At that moment, our eyes met. Albert looked back at me with an unreadable expression.
“Do you think I’ll reject you, Rosé?”
Whenever I’m with Albert, I often feel like I’m being put to test like this.
But at times like these, I’m quick to catch on.
I answered firmly.
Whether or not my answer was the right one, Albert grinned. He nodded casually.
“Then why did you ask when you already knew?”
“Because it’s right to ask for consent.”
Glancing at me, Albert put one hand over my head, gently stroking me.
“Thank you for the compliment.”
It felt like I’m a puppy in front of my owner. Still, it’s good that I got the answer right and got praised for it. I’m being recognized for my abilities.
Squeezing the towel I had soaked in water, I placed it on his body.
As I sat closer to Albert, I started wiping every inch starting with his neck.
From his throat, his wide shoulders, his collarbones.
Of course, just like when I was unclasping the last button earlier, my eyes were stuck only on the towel.
I’m holding the towel now, but how do I do this? The moment I touched his bare skin, my hands heated up as if they were on fire.
Emptying my mind as I continued to wipe him down, the task that seemed to go on forever finally ended.
But my conscience shouted that there was still the back left.
In fact, his back must have sweated the most, so I caught myself.
Eventually, I sighed and asked.
“Prince, can you turn around?”
Albert nodded at what I said.
I didn’t know that the day would come that Albert would start obediently listening to me. I was deeply moved.
But then, for a moment, I almost stopped breathing.
Because as I was already close to him while wiping his body, the distance between us suddenly narrowed and got close in an instant the moment he sat up.
All the nerves in my body were on edge.
I almost got buried right into Albert’s arms.
I knew Albert had a large physique, but knowing and experiencing it personally were two different things.
…I just want to finish this quickly so he can go back to sleep.
After slowly leaning back, I succeeded in keeping my distance from him.
Staring at me while he was half naked, Albert crossed his arms and chuckled.
“It’s my first time seeing you like this.”
There was a hint of mischief in this tone of voice.
With a smile, I replied.
“I don’t usually wipe Your Highness’ bare body.”
“I don’t think this kind of reaction is bad either.”
But at that, I protested at once.
“It’s bad. I don’t like it when you’re sick.”
“That makes me happy though. Are you worried for me?”
Was it so surprising that I’m worried about him?
No, has Albert received any such concern before? Why does it seem like my actions are unfamiliar to him?
As my lips turned into a frown, I expressed my honest thoughts.
“How can I not worry about you when you’re so ill like this?”
Albert tilted his head to the side. His brows became furrowed as his forehead wrinkled. In a low voice, he muttered.
“I don’t think I’m that ill.”
But I answered back with straight facts.
“Cold sweat and your high fever is enough to tell me everything.”
Even if a sick person says that he isn’t sick, it won’t work. This method doesn’t work anymore!
“This is in violation of the promise you made with me before, Prince.”
And with a gentle smile, I added.
“I firmly believe that Your Highness will not lie to me.”
Stroking his chin, Albert stared at me. I don’t know if he was affected by my words or if he couldn’t think of an answer.
“Let’s just finish this.”
Then Albert turned around to show his back. There was a smirk on his lips.
I have no idea whether it was him or me who won.
