Side Story 13 – Blake has become smaller (13)
“Wife, I’m back.”
I see. Blake returned to his original form.
Blake and Eunhan argued, but they said it was not serious enough to be enemies. So Baekhan wouldn’t have done anything to harm Blake.
I thought I would come back later, but I was worried about the possibility that Blake might be harmed.
Seeing him returned to normal, I felt relieved in my heart.
At the same time, it was awkward.
Blake, who was small and cute like a rabbit, turned into a handsome and charming man overnight.
“You don’t want me back? Do you like small ones?”
Blake lowered his eyes with sadness.
I shook my head in surprise.
“There’s no way I don’t like it!”
I forgot for a moment because I saw him every day, but my husband’s beauty was shocking.
I like him either way. The man I love is Blake himself, so it didn’t matter what he looked like.
“I love you, Blake.”
I gave him a big hug.
“I love you too.”
Blake smiled brightly.
Blake’s joy of becoming an adult again soon became a problem.
“You don’t remember?”
“Yes, not at all.”
He said he barely remembered what had happened in the past month.
Blake nodded his head.
He forgot everything when he was young….
This meant that not only the memories he had accumulated with me, but also the memories he had with Tenstheon disappeared.
They’ve barely gotten along, is it going back to square one?
Whenever I had a conversation with Blake, I thought of Tenstheon’s expression, which was filled with happiness.
I couldn’t even imagine how heartbroken he would be if Blake said he couldn’t remember any of those days.
“…Yes, I think I had a long dream.”
When I asked again, Blake’s red eyes shook slightly.
I noticed a small change in his expression.
He doesn’t really remember? I doubt it.
“Then you don’t remember this either?”
Blake opened his eyes. He looked a bit wary because I might notice his act.
I picked up the letter on the table.
On the envelope, it said ‘to my wife’ in a poor handwriting.
“This is a love letter that the Blake from yesterday received, don’t you remember?”
This letter was from Coby. Blake hated it as soon as he saw the letter yesterday.
And even now, just looking at the envelope made his face stiff.
However, he still claimed that he did not remember.
I nodded lightly and took out the letter from the envelope.
“Wife, this is Coby. Long time no see. How are you? I was very surprised that my wife left suddenly.”
When I started reading the letter, Blake’s expression froze.
“Wife, thank you so much for protecting me. Thank you for the wooden sword. My brother’s really jealous. It’s much better than his sword!”
His handwriting and spelling were terrible. The sentence was not smooth either.
But I naturally modified the awkward part and read it as if I was reciting a poem.
As I went on, I felt like I was reading an unknown symbol, not a letter.
He must have learned how to write, but I didn’t think he knew it perfectly.
Maybe he asked his family to write it, but when they heard the letter, no one wanted to write it.
Even after we returned to the palace, some of the knights remained in Amoria Palace to deal with an accident.
People said Coby came all the way here by himself and delivered the letter.
“You must give it to my wife.”
“Okay, I’ll give it to the Crown Prince.”
The knights said that they accepted the letter because Coby talked with tears in his eyes. They thought he was cute.
I praised them for their good work, but Blake flared up with his small body.
“Why awe you taking this? Who got it? Who got it!”
(Why are you taking this? Who got it? Who got it?)
I had managed to stop Blake from questioning the one who received Coby’s letter.
The more I read the letter, the more red his face was. He’s very cute.
Oh, so he remembered everything.
But he didn’t admit it. Then I have no choice but to go all the way.
“I heard my wife is the Crown Prince. But I don’t care. You’re my wife. We kissed each other. I will be a great knight when I grow up! So I’ll definitely go see my wife! Wait till then!”
I smiled at Blake, whose face turned into a red apple.
“Blake, did you meet someone else behind my back? For a month? How could you do that!”
When I snapped back, Blake grabbed my hand in a hurry.
“Please stop. I, I remember…”
He barely confessed the truth.
“You remembered everything, right?”
Blake nodded instead of answering.
“But why did you say you didn’t remember?”
He lowered his head and spat out. I was speechless when I saw Blake, whose ears and neck were red.
It was a cuteness beyond description! Regardless of whether he’s small or big, my groom is the cutest in the world!
I gave my groom a big hug.
As I went down to the first floor, I heard Tenstheon’s voice.
He must have come early in the morning knowing that it was the day Blake came back to his body.
Tenstheon and Blake looked at each other. And silence came.
Don’t tell me that their relationship has gone back to the old days as adults.
An uneasy tension swelled in. Tenstheon felt the same way as I did, so we couldn’t open our mouth.
Blake opened his mouth in a suffocating silence.
He grinned after calling Tenstheon “father” with clear pronunciation.
“Well, my pronunciation is fine now, isn’t it?”
Tenstheon’s eyes turned red. He didn’t show it, but he was worried that the time he was recognized as a father would disappear like a bubble.
“Well done. It’s perfect.”
Tenstheon embraced Blake with one hand. And he looked at me with his other hand wide open.
*TL note: she had always called him father-in-law, but I always tl it as ‘father’ only because it’s a bit awkward.
I was going to hug him too, but Tenstheon shook his head.
“Not father anymore.”
Right, he’s not my father-in-law anymore. The day Blake called Tenstheon ‘father’ I said I would call him “father.”
And it’s finally time to keep that promise.
I gave Tenstheon a hug with a big smile.
My father smiled and hugged the two of us.
Today is our wedding day.
Blake suddenly became smaller and preparations for the wedding were suspended for a month, but afterwards it went smoothly without any problems.
Me and Blake clasped our hands as we went into the wedding hall.
Unlike our shabby wedding ceremony as a child, the guest seats were full now.
The wedding hall was also decorated beautifully and elegantly.
Tenstheon smiled at us sincerely.
Even after Blake returned to his original body, the two remained on good terms.
However Blake didn’t want him to treat him like a child.
“I can put my son on my lap. What do you mean?”
Tenstheon showed signs of disappointment, but Blake completely blocked his father’s suggestion.
These days, it was the most enjoyable to see the two quarreling over small things.
Diana was sitting on the bride’s guest seat.
She graduated from the Knights Academy and officially became my knight.
On the graduation day of the Knights Academy, Blake said he would also attend. I think he felt guilty because he couldn’t attend her entrance ceremony before.
According to the rules of the Knights Academy, only the family could attend. However, Blake changed the academy’s rules, saying that a brother-in-law is also a family.
I kept forgetting that Blake is the Crown Prince.
Diana was wearing nice pants again today.
She wondered if she should wear a dress because it was my wedding, but I told her that Diana should wear what she wants.
And now Diana, who wears a dark navy suit, looked very slick.
Melissa sobbed as if she was marrying her child in the guest room, Hans and Chelsea were busy trying to appease her. Also, even though it’s not as much as Melissa, Edon and Terry were also in tears.
I didn’t know they would be so sad.
Sir Collin was also looking at the two of us with a soft smile that didn’t match his sharp appearance.
Eunhan and Baekhan also attended the wedding.
Eunhan said he promised Tenstheon a long time ago to attend if we had a formal wedding.
Blake and Baekhan growled as soon as they saw each other, but they managed to reconcile with me and Eunhan’s mediation.
Blake and Eunhan met separately for a while and talked, but Blake’s expression was more relaxed, although it was not clear whether they had reconciled or whether the misunderstanding had been resolved.
Well, even so, he still didn’t seem to like Eunhan.
And there was Ser among the guests.
Ser was invisible to anyone other than me and Blake.
As a wedding gift, she made me and Blake a communication tool where we could chat with each other anytime. She said that she also hung on protective magic on us.
Amidst the celebrations of my family, people at Amoria Palace, friends, and countless others, me and Blake took a step forward.
We stood in front of Marron, the priest. He asked in a solemn voice.
“Blake Larish Geracillion, Ancia Raelle Geracillion, do you swear to love each other for an eternity?”
We answered at the same time.
“Under the pledge of eternal light, I declare that they have become a true couple.”
The priest smiled and declared our marriage.
Me and Blake held hands and looked at each other.
We have become a couple for a long time. There were many twists, but our hearts were never shaken.
Therefore, it was refreshing to have a wedding ceremony again after being recognized by the church.
Our wedding ceremony was filled with happiness amidst many congratulations and blessings. I was touched remembering our childhood, when we were only the ‘monstrous crown prince and a countess.’
Is Blake thinking the same thing as me?
We looked at each other for a moment and kissed each other.
Then the guests applauded.
We’ve walked on a thorny path. But we had fun, sad and hard times together. And we’ll continue to walk together in the future.
From now on, there will only be happiness on our path. We’ll be happy just to walk hand in hand together.
