A Tender Kiss
I’m back from the dead with eight chapters…!!!
Ysnay’s attack stunned both humans and daemons. Her feat of killing all the daemons on the wall with a wave of her hand was enough to stop the daemons in their tracks.
Even the daemon general paled when he saw that. He certainly was strong, but he knew he could not kill so many people like that without causing even the slightest fluctuation in mana.
In fact, he wondered if he could survive if he faced that attack.
Looking at the beautiful black-haired woman standing indifferently on the battlefield, the expression on the daemon general’s face changed several times.
Then, he heaved a long sigh.
Just like that, the battle came to an end.
Meanwhile, I continued carrying Rose towards my house.
She had some injuries, but they were small considering what she just went through. I mean, she received a blow of a fourteenth-layer practitioner as a seventh-layer practitioner.
The fact that she was alive could already be considered a miracle.
I sent a bit of mana inside her body to treat these injuries. This time, though, I did not heal them immediately. I did not want to attract unnecessary attention from the people around us.
In the way, Katherine approached us. I noticed she was glaring at me with a sour expression, obviously angry.
“Did anything happen?” I raised an eyebrow.
Katherine did not reply immediately. Instead, she glared at me for several seconds before snorting.
“You could have interfered sooner. Rose was injured.”
I put on a wry smile.
“Sorry about that, but it was a good opportunity for Rose to grow. I did not want to destroy it by interfering.”
Katherine narrowed her eyes. She stared at me with an obviously displeased expression before snorting.
“… I will believe you this time.”
I chuckled and shook my head.
When we arrived at the house, my aunt and the others became after seeing Rose’s injuries. Fortunately, I managed to placate them when I said she was just unconscious and her injuries would be alright by tomorrow.
That managed to calm them down. Even so, Aunt Dayana and Aunt Sera of them suggested calling a healing mage.
No healing mage can be better than me, so I refused. I mean, I can even bring someone back to life as long as his or her soul has not dissipated yet. These injuries are nothing.
After several minutes of convincing my aunts that everything was alright, I finally brought Rose to her room.
Coincidentally, she opened her eyes as soon as I put her on the bed.
I smiled softly and caressed her hair.
“How are you, my sleeping hero?”
Rose blushed slightly and smiled shyly. But then, she seemed to think about something and put on a serious expression.
“I’m alright, but… The power I used today…Is that what he meant when he called me a ‘Hero’?”
“You mean the Immortal?”
Rose nodded. She put on a complicated expression and looked at her hand.
“That power… It feels so strange… As though I was omnipotent… But now, I feel afraid… I don’t know where that power came from… Or if I can control it…”
I smiled amusedly. Girl, if you felt you are omnipotent just with that…
Chuckling slightly, I caressed her cheek and looked straight into her eyes.
“Don’t worry, that power is yours. In fact, you should not worry about being a hero or whatever. Just do what you think is right. As for the rest, leave it to me.”
Rose looked for a few seconds and nodded softly with a red hue on her face.
This cute girl…
“You know, I want to kiss you a lot right now.”
Before she could react, I put my lips against hers.
Rose opened her eyes wide. She looked towards me with an astonished expression as I stole her lips.
But then, she closed her eyes without resisting.
Emboldened by her lack of resistance, I stuck my tongue out and licked her lips. I then opened her lips softly and pushed my tongue inside.
But although Rose did not resist my kiss, it did not mean she would allow my tongue to behave mischievously.
Instead, she closed her teeth firmly, refusing my attempts to bring the kiss one level up.
I did not mind it, though. Instead, I continued using my tongue to lick her lips tenderly, once and again, for several seconds.
And eventually, Rose took a deep breath, opening her teeth involuntarily.
Taking advantage of that opportunity, my tongue invaded her mouth.
Rose’s eyes opened wide. Her face froze in surprise as she felt my tongue moving inside her mouth.
Then, she felt my tongue suddenly touching hers.
With a panicked and muffled cry, Rose pushed my chest away.
Then, she panted softly as she glared at me in embarrassment in shame.
I caressed her hair again and kissed her forehead.
Rose was so embarrassed that she was unable to speak. She just took a pillow and used it to cover her face.
Laughing softly, I left her room and closed the door behind me.
Just after I left the room, I heard a soft whisper.
Shaking my head, I returned to the living room.
Aunt Dayana, Aunt Sera, and the others were still there, hearing Katherine’s talk about tonight’s battle with focused expressions.
But when I returned to the living room, Katherine glared at me suspiciously.
“Hey, why did you stayed so long inside Rose’s room? You did not take advantage of her while she was asleep, right?”
“Of course not. What kind of pervert do you think I am.” I put on an offended look.
She was not asleep, she was awake.
Katherine was still looking at me suspiciously, but when she failed to discover anything from my expression, she gave up.
At the same time, Aunt Dayana, Aunt Sera, Andrea, and Lina stood up from their seats.
“Are you going to sleep?” I asked.
“Yes, we are a bit tired.” Aunt Dayana yawned apologetically.
I nodded. It was already dawn. Aunt Dayana, Aunt Sera, and Andrea’s cultivation were not very high, so they should be tired.
Mainly Aunt Dayana. She must be tired after we shook the bed fiercely a few hours ago.
Only Katherine remained outside. She went to the kitchen and took a bottle of wine and one cup.
I raised an eyebrow.
“Drinking at this time?”
“Just a little bit, don’t worry.”
“Let me accompany you then.” I smiled and grabbed another cup of wine.
Katherine did not resist. Actually, she most likely planned to drink with me from the start. The reason she did not ask me directly was probably that she found it too embarrassing.
However, I could not help but be curious.
Katherine did not seem like the kind to drink wine. Could it be she is worried about something?
