If You Want to Know It, You Have to Marry Me
With a flash of light, Evelyn and I reappeared in the depths of space.
I waved my hand to create a barrier around us, isolating us from the harsh conditions of space and creating a burble of vital space.
As soon as we appeared, Evelyn collapsed on my back panting heavily.
“Are you alright?” I asked in a concerned tone.
Evelyn nodded with a pale face. “I guess… But I thought I was going to die.”
I smiled wryly. Girl, I’m surprised by the fact that you did not faint after facing his pressure.
Even if he was just an avatar, it’s not something a thirteenth-layer practitioner should be able to withstand.
“Boy… Who was him? He… He seemed to know you.”
I scratched my head and looked at Evelyn fixedly. “Do you truly want to know?”
“… I do.”
I curved my lips up and leaned forward slightly, kissing Evelyn’s lips softly.
“This is my pay.”
Evelyn twitched her lips. “Rogue.” She said. Unconsciously, though, she rested her body on my chest.
I thought for a moment and organized my words. After a few seconds, I opened my mouth. “He is the person behind the dark clouds.”
Evelyn was startled before realization dawned on her.
“It was him!? But then, how do you know each other!?”
“We didn’t. We made contact while I was studying the dark seeds, so he knows of my existence.”
Evelyn nodded in understanding. “Then, what about your strength? Claus, you fought him to a standstill. And I’m completely sure a thirteenth-layer practitioner is not supposed to be able to do something like that.”
I chuckled. “You are right, a normal practitioner can’t. But I’m different.”
“If you want to know, you have to marry me.”
“Bastard!” Evelyn said with gritted teeth. “Do you know how it feels when you let someone hanging up like that!?”
I nodded. “I know, so I’m not telling you. You need more than a kiss to access that information.”
Evelyn looked at me with eyes full of anger. She probably was thinking about different forms to kill me.
I chuckled again and hugged her body before putting her on my lap.
“What are you doing?” Evelyn panicked, but I just shrugged while pointing to the void of space. “I don’t know how long we are going to be here, so I need to reduce the size of the barrier to save up mana.” Evelyn looked at me with a suspicious look, but perhaps because she was too tired to refute my obvious lie, she just rolled her eyes and relaxed completely.
Just like that, we wandered through the void of space for a few minutes.
“How much time do you need to cast the teleportation spell again?”
“… I have enough mana, but I feel a bit tired and I’m suffering from a terrible headache, so I want to wait until I felt better.”
“Is it so?” I hugged Evelyn’s body and started to massage her temples gently.
“Headmistress, can I say something?”
“I like you.”
“I-I-Is it so?” Evelyn stuttered and looked down. “B-But I think it’s not right if we–”
Before she could continue speaking, I held her cheek and moved my lips towards hers.
Evelyn froze. Soon, though, she closed her eyes and let herself to receive my kiss.
After that kiss ended, we kissed again, and again. Only after five minutes, Evelyn meved her lips away and stared at me with her blood-red eyes.
“… I’m not sure about this.”
“Do you like me, headmistress?”
“I don’t know… Perhaps.”
With a smile, I put my head on her shoulder and kissed her cheek. “Then, what are you going to do?”
“… Let me think for a while, okay?”
“Only if you give me another kiss.”
“Rogue.” Evelyn rolled her eyes. Her lips, though, moved towards mine slowly.
I savored her sweet lips happily and bit them slightly. Finally, I extended my tongue inside Evelyn’s mouth.
We forgot about everything else, just enjoying our kisses greedily. Rather unexpectedly, Evelyn quickly learned how to kiss. Although she was mostly passive at the start, she took the initiative on more than one occasion towards the end.
Unfortunately, such a sweet moment did not last long.
“… It’s time to go back.” Evelyn said with a bit of reluctance.
I nodded and stroked her hair. “Don’t worry, I’ll go to your office often.”
Evelyn rolled her eyes. “Who wants you to go there? You will only go to do perverted things.” Her lips, however, curved up happily.
“The spell is ready. Claus, promise me to keep our matter a secret, okay?”
“Don’t worry, I understand.”
“Good. And sorry, I will give you my answer after I think things through.”
Evelyn then kissed my cheek and cast the spell.
Seconds later, we appeared in Raven’s room.
Raven had been sleeping when we arrived, but she woke up as soon as she felt our presence. But once she discovered one of the people was me, her eyes dropped sleepily.
“Don’t worry, little kitty. You can continue sleeping.”
Raven nodded sleepily and kissed my lips before falling asleep again.
Evelyn looked at the scene with an indifferent expression. Her eyes, though, were piercing daggers towards me.
“Thinking about it, I can give you my answer now.”
“Let’s go back to the institute first.” I quickly diverted the topic without changing my expression. Evelyn snorted and cast the teleportation spell again.
We appeared in the underground library of the academy. When we appeared, the teachers and the old man reacted instantly and looked at us in surprise.
“You… You two are alive! Great, hahahahaha!” Evelyn’s teacher laughed joyfully and rushed towards us. The other teachers also smiled in relief.
“Evelyn, Clark, what happened? How are you? Why did you take so long to come back?” The old man threw us a barrage of questions. Evelyn smiled bitterly and gave him and the others a recount of the situation. When they heard that we fell in another world, they were surprised.
“… You had it hard. It’s good you are alright.” The old man finally sighed and said.
Evelyn shook her head. “Actually, I think this was a good experience. I feel that I’m close to reaching the fourteenth layer. Moreover–” Evelyn then looked at me before looking away with a slight flush.
Fortunately, everybody else was too focused on the first part of her words to notice it.
“Fourteenth layer!?” The old man exclaimed. “T-That is…”
“Yeah, I know. Even I can’t believe it myself.”
“You… Sigh. I have been trying my entire life to breakthrough to the thirteenth layer, but my apprentice managed to reach the fourteenth so easily.”
“I’m sure you will succeed one day, teacher.”
The old man sighed softly. “I hope so.”
