Side Story 11 – Blake has become smaller (11)
‘This is the worst thing ever. This must be a dream.’
Blake stared blankly at the emperor’s bed. He couldn’t believe this situation now.
Is he sure that he wants to sleep together with him? No way.
But Tenstheon’s words shattered Blake’s hopes.
“What are you doing? Let’s go to bed.”
He really wants to sleep with him. Blake looked at Tenstheon’s eyes.
He happened to be in his arms all day today, but he didn’t want to sleep together as he has already grown up.
“I, I can sweep alone!” (I, I can sleep alone!)
“No, it’s dangerous.”
“It’s not dwangerous!”
“I don’t know where you’ll go again.”
“I’m not gwoing. I won’t gwo out.” (I’m not going. I won’t go out)
Tenstheon climbed onto the bed with the squirming Blake in his arms.
Blake, who was struggling to get out of his arms somehow, saw a wound on Tenstheon’s wrist.
“Awe you huwt?” (Are you hurt?)
“Oh, it’s nothing.”
Tenstheon hugged Blake and lowered the raised sleeve again. It was a wound he got when he was moving in a hurry to find Blake.
Tenstheon did not speak directly, but Blake could guess why he was hurt.
“I’ll tweat you.” (I’ll treat you.)
Blake took his hand to the wound. Then the scar on the wrist disappeared with the light.
“Nwo, it’s nothing.” (No. It’s nothing.)
Blake bent his head and tried to go. But Tenstheon lay in bed holding him tightly.
Blake didn’t give up after he got up and found a way to get down.
Then he could hear Tenstheon,
“I love you.”
Tenstheon conveyed his sincerity that he had not done so far.
“I should have protected you, I’m so sorry.”
Blake looked at Tenstheon without saying a word. After a brief silence, he shook his head.
“No, dwon’t mind what I said during the day.” (No, don’t mind what I said before.)
To be honest, during those days, he missed Tenstheon and blamed his father for not finding him
But now he knew.
Originally, the heir to the curse should be confined to the southern island, but Tenstheon placed him in a separate palace instead.
To the end, Tenstheon made a tremendous effort. He was protested by countless people, but he kept his son to the end, pretending to be indifferent. And he wasn’t completely abandoned.
Those who were so good-natured that they did not despise the heir to the curse were selected and sent to the Amoria Palace, Eunhan was also asked to look after Blake before.
Above all, he could marry Ancia thanks to Tenstheon.
“I’m sworry for saying something so hwash. It wasn’t my intention.” (I’m sorry for saying something so harsh. It wasn’t my intention.)
In the afternoon, he was so angry that his childish thoughts came out.
As his body becomes smaller, his thoughts also seem to have become younger.
“No, it’s my fault. I wanted to hug you like this…I should’ve hugged you.”
Tenstheon’s face was full of regret.
The two have been separated for too long. Too much time has passed, without the opportunity to apologize and missing the timing.
“Blake, can you call me ‘Father’ just once?”
He looked so afraid and cautious speaking to him, unlike an emperor who commanded the empire.
Blake glanced to Tenstheon.
It was a word that he had never said since he was cursed.
It was awkward to say it, not because he didn’t like Tenstheon or didn’t want to admit that he is his father.
Of course, it was true that he had resentment when he was told to call him ‘Your Majesty’ instead of ‘Father’ before he was cursed.
In addition, there was a frustration that Tenstheon could not recognize a monster as a son who was cursed like him.
Even after he knew it wasn’t true, he couldn’t say ‘father’ like before.
Blake was so nervous that he cleared his throat. And he told Tenstheon,
Blake was disappointed in himself.
He can’t even pronounce the easy word ‘father’ properly. It’s been a while since he said this…
He cleared his throat just in case he made a mistake, but it didn’t work.
Blake’s face flushed with embarrassment.
Tenstheon, however, hugged Blake with a happy expression, as if he didn’t care about his pronunciation.
He kissed Blake’s soft cheek.
He can’t believe that he kissed his grown-up son!
Blake hated it, but when he saw Tenstheon smiling brightly, he couldn’t say no.
And maybe it’s because his body got smaller, he didn’t hate his father’s kiss as much as he did when he was young.
Blake smiled and said once again.
And once again, he was disappointed in himself.
When I heard the news of Blake, I hurried back to the villa.
They lost Blake, but they found him right away. I received a letter from Tenstheon that I don’t need to come back right away, but I couldn’t take a rest in the hotel.
How did they lose him? Are you sure he’s gonna be okay? You didn’t lie to reassure me, did you?
On the way back, my heart felt like it was going to burst due to nervousness.
“Your Highness, you’re back already?”
Melissa was surprised to hear that I had come back.
“Where’s Blake now?”
“He’s in His Majesty’s bedroom.”
I hurried to Tenstheon’s bedroom.
While walking down the hall, Melissa told me the details.
Blake and Tenstheon are said to have destroyed the place. And they must have returned to the villa safely.
“Everyone’s safe. Don’t worry about it.”
I was relieved to hear Melissa say that, but the worries didn’t go away.
She said Blake had come home with Tenstheon, was it the right choice to leave them alone?
Then he must’ve asked him to sleep with him tonight.
When I opened the door carefully, I saw Tenstheon and Blake sleeping on the bed.
Blake, who fell asleep in the arms of Tenstheon, looked very comfortable. There was also a peaceful smile around Tenstheon’s mouth.
When I saw the two, the corners of my mouth went up by itself.
I guess I was worried about nothing.
I closed the door quietly and went outside.
Several things happened even though I only went out for a day.
The next day, Blake called Tenstheon differently.There was only a little problem.
“Fwa, f, nono, fwa, ther.”
He wanted to call Tensteon ‘father’. But it wasn’t easy.
He spoke one letter at a time and when he spoke quickly, Blake still couldn’t do it.
Blake who failed again this time pouted. Tenstheon smiled brightly seeing his son.
“That’s alright. It’s enough now.”
“Right Blake, you did a great job.”
I agreed with Tenstheon. However Blake didn’t change his expression.
Tenstheon hugged Blake and put him on his lap.
“T, there’s Anthia hewe!” (T, There’s Ancia here!)
Blake’s face was flushed red. However, the smile did not leave Tenstheon’s mouth.
“Blake, if ‘father’ is too hard for you, how about dad?”
No, father, are you being greedy now? How many ‘father’ have you heard from Blake?
Oh my god. He’s doing great. You’re doing great, father!
I clapped my hands inwardly.
But Blake was embarrassed.
“No, I dwon’t want to. E, embawassing…” (No, I don’t want to. E, embarassing.)
Tenstheon smiled happily at Blake, whose face had heated up.
The tip of my mouth also went up.
When I fed him pudding for dessert, Blake opened his mouth like a baby bird and ate it.
How can he be so cute when he chews?
“Iw’ll do it like Anthia too!” (I’ll do it like Ancia too!)
He came down from Tenstheon’s lap and came to me.
I put Blake in the chair next to me. He picked up a spoonful with his small hand, then scooped up the lemon jam and put it in the tea.
He started stirring the spoon very fast.
After stirring all the jam, Blake shouted with a proud look,
“I stiwed as fast as Ancia!” (I stirred as fast as Ancia!)
I was silent. But Tenstheon burst into laughter.
“It’s just like Ancia.”
“Hehe, she’s as fwast as a baby.” (Hehe, she’s as fast as a baby.)
“That’s right. Ancia does it quickly.”
He doesn’t act like how a child would, he acted like Koreans!
I couldn’t explain and shut my mouth.
One problem has arisen since the relationship between the two recovered. Whenever they have the time, they make fun of me together.
I pouted and then burst into laughter afterwards.
Well, actually, I can be teased.
I was so happy that Blake and Tenstheon were naturally communicating with each other.
