“Don’t let go, I’m cold.”
“Ancia please stay next to me.”
Up until a while ago, he insisted that he would train, but he soon became like this.
“It’s because I’m powerless.”
If I had been the successor of light, if I had the ability to lift the curse of Goddess, Blake would not have been ill.
“Don’t say that. I’m happy to have such a great wife.”
Blake smiled back and hugged me. The moment I was held in his arms, a warm light enveloped us.
I slowly opened my eyes. I felt dazed and somewhat appalled.
I thought I had a nightmare, but I couldn’t remember.
‘Did I fell asleep?’
I came to my senses slowly. I was going to let Blake rest, but I guess I fell asleep too. I looked at the clock and it was already past 3 hours.
Blake fell asleep quietly, holding my left hand tightly. His hands were warm.
That’s a relief.
At the same time, I felt like a fool myself. I clenched my fist.
‘Sleeping together in such a situation, Ancia, are you insane? Blake is fine, so it’s okay. But even any 13 years old wouldn’t do this! Oh, idiot! you stupid!’
“Ancia, what are you doing? Don’t do that!”
In reflection of my own stupidity, Blake was startled and stopped me.
“I’m sorry, did I wake you?”
“No. I was about to get up!”
“How are you?”
“I’m fine! I can train right now!”
It wasn’t empty talk, he really seemed to be alright. But I wanted to give him a good rest today.
“No, we’re supposed to be together today.”
“Uh, uh, ah! Yeah! I’ll be with Ancia today!”
Blake nodded violently. He was so cute that I grabbed Blake’s cheeks and pulled it.
“Anthiaa, what is it?”
It’s cuter because his pronunciation is a bit off.
“My husband is so cute.”
He flew into a rage. These days, he doesn’t like hearing people saying he’s cute. What’s wrong with him? Is he already going through puberty?
But even that look was cute.
“I got a letter from Diana today.”
“Did she finish her winter training well?”
“Yes, it must have been fun.”
“I’m going to write her back, and Your Highness will write with me.”
He seemed surprisingly unwilling. Of course, I was a little surprised when I thought he’d say, ‘I want to write a letter to Diana, too.’
“Why? You don’t want to?”
“I don’t want it, we’ll see each other when it’s vacation anyway. I don’t have to write a letter…”
He was rather half-hearted. It was like a college student who was told to write a letter to a friend who joined the army.
They are like a real friend, but I felt a little uncomfortable with his somewhat cold reaction. Was there such a side to my rabbit, which is full of gentleness and tenderness?
“Your Highness, didn’t you miss Diana?”
“Not really. It’s rather good.”
“Yes. Now I can be alone with my wife.”
Blake snuggled and hugged me, while whispering
“Actually, I was jealous.”
“With Diana, I spend less time with Ancia. It’s good to be with you all the time now.”
I thought he was having fun with his friend, but he were thinking like this. I giggled and stroked his hair.
“So my husband is jealous~”
“Do you hate it?”
Blake looked up at me with his eyes. I immediately shake my head as soon as he blinked his big eyes and lowered his eyes a little worriedly.
“No, I like it!”
Who would hate my cute bunny!
“Hehe. Thank God.”
Blake laughed. When I saw the innocent smile, my heart seemed to be healed.
Diana seemed well adapted to the academy. In particular, she was in the same class as Jayden, the red-haired boy who took the podium before, and half of the letters were about him.
—Jayden has already been granted permission to own a real sword.
—Jayden hometown must be very far away. He said he will stay in the dormitory during the vacation.
—Jayden only had a little meal today. He usually eats everything.
Jayden, Jayden, Jayden, Jayden… I’ve heard it so many times like I knew him personally. Even though I only saw him once at the entrance ceremony.
She kept on telling me about him, so I thought she likes him, so I asked her to bring him in during the vacation, and she write,
“What? I’m sick and tired of seeing him at the academy all the time!”
Am I wrong? But if she’s worried about him not eating, didn’t she like him?
Is this world like that? No, is that what kids do these days? I agonized over it, but no answer came out.
—I wanted to see Jayden, it’s a shame.
I write the letter and put it in an envelope.
Blake didn’t send Diana a letter. Diana didn’t really want Blake’s letter either. That doesn’t mean they don’t think about each other.
Blake sometimes asked me, ‘How’s Diana doing?’ Diana also asked me how’s Blake doing. However, neither seemed willing to exchange letters.
How did the heroine of the original novel and the second male lead become like this?
I tried to seal the envelope, but my eyes were naturally fixed on the rose on one side of the desk. It was the first gift Blake gave me. The flower will soon withered, so I added a preservative and placed it in a vase.
This red rose is my most precious treasure. No treasure in the world can change it.
Suddenly someone from behind hugged me tightly. He smelled like a rose. I smiled and held my groom’s hand.
“Ancia, what are you doing?”
“The roses are pretty.”
“Ancia is much prettier.”
The moment I heard it, I burst out laughing.
“Why are you laughing?”
“You know how to praise people naturally now, and I thought my groom is all grown up.”
“I’m 11. I‘m a grown up.”
He emphasized his age this year. Come to think of it, I think he lost some of his baby fat and grew taller in a few months. Even though he’s still small.
“I’m only two years apart from my wife.”
“That’s still a two-year difference.”
He pouted his mouth. Is he upset? I’m going to stop teasing him.
I held his hand and touched his forehead lightly. These days, his physical condition often gets worse, so it has become a habit to check him whenever I have time.
He doesn’t have a fever. He looks fine.
As Blake could have been sad if I check his fever,
I quickly lowered my hand on his forehead and touched his cheek. Then Blake curled up shyly, but rubbed his face on my hands.
“Ancia’s hands are warm…”
Oh no, I couldn’t bear his overwhelming cuteness and hugged Blake tightly.
“My rabbit is the cutest in the world!”
Blake was silently looking at the door. I turned my head too, but there was nothing there.
He smiled sweetly and held my hand. Thankfully, he’s not sulking….
“Your Majesty, we’re going down. The beans prepared yesterday must have been done.”
We held hands together and went downstairs.
I was going to make tofu today. Originally, I wanted to make it earlier, but it took more time than expected to get a millstone and make a tofu frame.
I went down to the kitchen with Blake and checked the condition of the bean that was pre-soaked last night.
“We’re going to peel it now.”
“Yes! Your Highness! Just give me an order!”
Chef Terry answered. He was Edon’s brother, and he was very interested in Eastern cuisine.
I’m trying to peel the beans with Terry and Melissa, but Blake approaches….
“I want to help.”
When I lived in Korea, I often made and ate tofu. It took me a long time to peel the beans with my grandmother, so I whined, “Why don’t you just make it with the skin?” I was about 9 years old at that time.
There’s not much difference compared to that time, but Blake did not grumble and immediately got to work.
His work speed was much faster as several people were together….
When the peeled beans were put into a millstone, the water flowed out.
Blake admired. Terry and Melissa were also amazed because they were different types from the millstone used in the empire.
To be honest, it was new for me, too. There was a millstone in my grandmother’s house, but because the handle was worn out, I didn’t actually use it, but I used an old mixer instead.
Of course, I’ve seen it on videos, but seeing the beans split like this, my eyes naturally grew bigger.
