Side Story 12 – Blake has become smaller (12)
After the meal, Tenstheon reached out to Blake.
“Blake, let’s go to the Phillipa Palace.”
“Yes. Anthia, I’ll be wight back.” (Yes. Ancia, I’ll be right back.)
Blake held Tenstheon’s hand and waved at me.
“Yes, good luck.”
After the incident, we returned to the palace.
It was also revealed that he had become smaller when troops were called in to find Blake. Therefore, there is no reason to hide in the villa.
Furthermore, the news spread throughout the empire that Blake used his small body as a bait and destroy the slave trade.
People praised the Crown Prince, and as worried as she was, there was no one who dared to do anything just because he became smaller.
The incident played a big role for their return to the palace.
But that’s it, I scolded Blake for his behavior.
“You’ve become a hostage on purpose, how could you do such a dangerous thing!”
“Anthia, Anthia, are you mad at me?” (Ancia, Ancia, are you mad at me?)
As soon as I wanted to scold him, Blake’s big eyes were filled with tears.
“Blake, what’s wrong?”
“I’m swo sad that Anthia’s angwy.” (I’m so sad that Ancia’s angry.)
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Don’t cry.”
I tried to scold him, but in the end, I was busy trying to appease him.
Anyway, the relationship between Tenstheon and Blake has been restored, so it’s a good thing.
I smiled and looked at Tenstheon and Blake, holding hands tightly.
Blake sat on Tenstheon’s lap and checked the documents.
He didn’t want to look like a child in front of Ancia, but when he was alone with Tenstheon, he didn’t care if his father treated him like a child.
It was awkward at first, but he quickly got used to it. Above all, this posture is comfortable when checking documents.
Tensteon handed over the papers nicely to Blake.
“I think we can twake cawe of this.” (I think we can take care of this.)
“Yes, that’s what I thought too.”
However, since he became sulky when treated too much like a child, he asked him to participate in political affairs for two hours a day. In addition, there were tasks that required Blake’s confirmation.
However, harsh issues were left out in advance to prevent Blake from encountering it.
This is not an office, but a room on the top floor of the Phillia Palace.
Recently, there have been too many people visiting the office to see Blake in person.
Even the treasurer, famous for being indifferent and cold, apparently wanted to come to the office.
Blake wasn’t interested in whether his servants came or not, but Tensteon didn’t want to lose his time alone with his son. That’s why they went up to the top floor.
“How’s Augan Tedbagger Dinessa?”
“Huh? What? What did you say?”
When Tensteon asked, Blake puffed his cheeks.
“Why can’t you undewstand me?” (Why can’t you understand me?)
Before, Blake was ashamed of not being able to pronounce well.
But after a month of being smaller, he showed a confident attitude to his pronunciation and was blaming people for not understanding it instead.
In addition, people from Amoria Palace understood Blake surprisingly well.
But, isn’t this a bit too much? Is there anyone who can understand him?
Tensteo smiled even thought it was somewhat unreasonable. Blake was also happy to complain to him.
“I’m sorry. Tell me again.”
Blake wrote on a paper instead of speaking.
[How is the construction of the embankment on the Aul River going?]
Oh, was that what he was saying?
“We’re going to start in earnest next month.”
Blake nodded his head.
“Blake, are you mad?”
“…you undewstand evewyone.” (You understand everyone.)
Blake spat out angrily.
“Eunhan wods wew cat’s wods, but you undewstood them all.” (Eunhan’s words were a cat’s words, but you understood them all….)
Blake was talking about when Eunhan turned into a cat.
“Was it upsetting?”
“I just want to say it…”
It was clear that he felt disappointed.
Tensteon smiled. He was grateful that Blake was honest with him.
“I was wrong.”
“Also don’t let Anthia and him meet.”
Tensteon was surprised. Ancia is very interested in eastern culture, so he thought they would get along.
He wishes that three of them could get along well. He thought so but didn’t do it because Blake was reluctant to do so.
But Blake seems rather unhappy with it.
“Yes, I’ll be careful next time.”
Blake made a new request. She must have really hated seeing Ancia and Eunhan.
“Okay, I’ll keep that in mind.”
Tensteon nodded and hugged Blake tightly.
Blake spoke slowly and carefully, but failed to pronounce “father” again this time.
Tensteon stroked the sullen Blake’s hair.
“Blake, do you remember playing hide-and-seek here?”
Blake nodded his head.
“Do you want to do it now?”
When asked by Tensteon, Blake shook his head.
“Am I a kid?”
“Right, you’re not a child.”
He became smaller, but he is not a child. The child who used to hide in this room whenever he played hide-and-seek has already become an adult.
Tensteon kissed Blake on the cheek, remembering the past times,
To his grown-up son!
Blake hated it, but Tensteon smiled happily.
Tomorrow will be a month since Blake became smaller.
Blake’s behavior wasn’t entirely like a child, but it was still a little different from how it was when he was an adult.
It’s because his mind sometimes succumbed to his young body.
Blake forgave Tensteon. But it may be because he became young.
What if Blake returned back to his body? Would he still call him “father” then?
Tensteon was not confident.
Maybe today will be the last day to spend such a warm time with Blake. This moment may never come in the future.
“Blake, drink this.”
I pass warm milk to Blake.
“Yes, thank you.”
“Be careful because it’s hot.”
“Dwon’t say that!”
Blake, who was drinking milk, was furious.
“I’m nwot a real baby!”
“But you’re so cute.”
The milk left a white beard around Blake’s mouth. I rubbed the mark with my thumb.
“What a baby.”
I think he’s said that because he doesn’t like being treated like a child, but the more he emphasized that, the more I wanted to tease him.
Contrary to expectations that he would be sulky, he shut up.
What’s wrong with him?
“It’s owkay. I’ll be back tommowow.” (It’s okay, I’ll be back tomorrow.)
Yes, it’s only a day before Blake returns to his original form.
Now, he could say goodbye to this form.
I caressed Blake’s chubby cheeks. Then Blake asked with a worried look.
“What if my body wasn’t back?”
“We can’t have a wedding.”
Blake opened his eyes wide. Is that such a surprise?
“I can’t marry a baby.”
“I’m just joking. I’ll wait until the baby grows up. So don’t cry.”
However, seeing him crying really sadly, I couldn’t laugh or tease him anymore. I hugged him and soothed him.
Eventually, I made Blake cry on his last day as a child.
Warm sunshine poured over my face. I tossed and turned as I hugged my husband tightly.
But something was wrong. He didn’t fit in one arm, and I felt a hard muscle.
I opened my eyes in surprise.
Then, I could see the face of a beautiful man who seemed not to be from this world.
His red eyes looked at me, with his perfect nose and sharp jawline that seemed to pop out of a book, also his fascinating lips,
She could also see hard muscles between his white shirt, long arms that can hold her in one arm, and long legs.
“I’m so embarrassed that my wife has been staring at me since morning..”
He even speaks in a man’s voice. This man is ···!
I got out of bed. Blake smiled gently.
“Wife, I’m back.”
