Side Story 4 – Blake has become smaller (4)
Everyone only smiled seeing Blake’s cuteness, but in fact it was a serious issue.
There may be some people who would target Blake as he was vulnerable at the moment. Nothing good will come out if this gets found out by people outside.
That’s why it must be a top secret that only few people knew, so me and Blake decided to stay in the royal villa a little far from the capital for a month.
Some servants and knights we trusted also followed us.
Me and Blake rode a carriage as we headed to the villa. Objectively, the situation was serious, but in reality, there was no one to target the imperial family now that Richard was gone.
As a result, we were in a good mood as if we were traveling.
“Blake, look at that. There is a big bird on the tree.”
But only one person was not happy.
Blake continued to be sullen ever since we came out to the palace.
Seeing him fiddling with buttons with a sad face, it must have been shocking for him not to be able to wear clothes alone.
“It’s hard because it’s a pearl button, very slippery. If you try it with another button, I’m sure you can do it.”
I comforted him, but Blake’s expression didn’t come off easily.
“Dwop me off.”
He lowered his head and said that.
Right now, he is resting on my lap as I hug his waist. He must have not like this.
But I refused immediately.
“No, it’s dangerous. You’ll be in trouble if you fall.”
Although the imperial carriage was larger and more stable than other carriages, it still rattled a lot compared to cars in modern times.
Also, the carriage didn’t have seat belts, so I had to hold him tightly.
“I won’t fall!”
Blake was upset.
“No, it’s really dangerous.”
“Dwon’t say that!”
He struggled angrily to get out of my arms. At that moment, the carriage rattled as Blake’s body tilted forward.
I was also surprised and hugged Blake’s waist tighter.
“See, I said no. You need to be a good boy.”
Blake rolled up his small finger and clenched his fist.
I barely understood what he said and nodded.
“What’s so unfair?”
“Instwead of a day, I should’ve changed Eunhan fow a month!”
He vented his anger by saying unknown things. What happened to Eunhan?
The royal villa was like a small castle.
I wanted to look around the villa, but I decided to go to bed because it was already late at night.
Sleeping in a new place really feels like I’m on a trip.
“Blake, let’s change into pajamas.”
Unlike before, he was obedient.
“Do you want to do the buttons alone?”
Blake shook his head.
He looked so sad, I felt sorry for him but I wanted to bite his cheeks because he looked so cute at the same time.
“Yes, Anthia is here.”
The way he called me was so cute that I teased him, Blake stared at me.
“Dwon’t copy me.”
He was still sullen and continued,
“Whese’s my right?”
As he became smaller, Blake couldn’t wear our wedding ring.
“I put it in the jewelry box.”
“Gwive it to me!”
“No, you’ll lose it.”
His shoulders drooped. I felt sorry for him, but if I give it to him now, he’ll really lose it.
“Aren’t you tired? Let’s go to bed now.”
After changing to pajamas, the two of us lay side by side on the bed. It was a little smaller than our bed, but it was enough.
My Blake’s gotten really small. I also prepared a special small pillow for him.
He sighed deeply looking at the ceiling.
I still can’t believe this bizarre situation.
Whenever Blake sighed, his plump cheeks would bounce cutely.
It was so cute that I immediately grabbed both of his cheeks.
Blake looked at me in astonishment. He looked shocked.
Is that so shocking?
“Sorry. You’re so cute.”
“I’m gwoing to sleep!”
Blake moved his body to the other side. It looks like he’s sulking.
I teased him too much today.
But his back was so small that I laughed again.
‘No, no, no. If I tease him more here, he might cry.’
I gently patted him on the back, suppressing my urge to tease him.
“Good night, my baby.”
I was going to sing a lullaby, but he turned around.
“I’m not a baby!”
No, I’m not trying to tease him. I just wanted to sing him a lullaby…
I laughed as I tried to explain.
When we were young, he also got mad when I wanted to sing him a lullaby. It really reminds me of the old days.
Instead of explaining, I hugged Blake tightly.
Blake puffed up his cheeks, but soon fell asleep in my arms.
I grinned and carefully caressed Blake’s cheeks which had no scars and curses now.
Blake sighed with melancholy as soon as he woke up.
“Blake, what’s wrong?”
“I’m not back.”
“He said you’d be like this for a month.”
I rubbed his chubby cheeks with my thumb. It was so cute to see him a little puffy after waking up.
“I ownly turned him fow a day. It’s unfair…” (I only turned him for a day. It’s unfair…)
He said something I didn’t understand again.
“Blake, why don’t you apologize if you want to go back to normal?”
He shouted firmly.
I guess he hated apologizing more than being a child.
Well, it was his choice, but I felt sorry to see him so sad.
“Blake, shall we go out?”
“Yes, it’s our first trip. Let’s have fun.”
When I was Rose, we camped together, but it didn’t feel like a trip.
Blake smiled back as if he liked the word “first trip.”
“Yes! Let’s go! Let’s go!”
Seeing him excited, he looked like a child.
It was 100 times cuter for him to smile like this than to have a gloomy look.
“Yes, let’s go!”
I smiled broadly and hugged Blake. I have to change into my outdoor clothes first.
It was a secret that Blake became smaller and that we came here.
We changed into simple clothes and went down to the square near the villa.
It was not as wide and vibrant as the capital square, but it was lively.
Blake failed to button up again today. This time it wasn’t a pearl button, it was a normal button.
He was sad for a while, but fortunately, he seemed happy when he saw the scenery of the square.
“How old are you. Three years old?
Blake said coldly.
“Oh my, you speak so well. You must be four.”
The auntie smiled and praised him, but Blake was silent.
“But what’s your relationship? Your nephew?
“I’m not hew nephew!”
Blake flared up and added,
“We’re a cwoupl—.”
I quickly replied, covering Blake’s mouth in a hurry.
“My younger sibling.”
“Really? So that’s why both of you are so beautiful. Your parents must be happy.”
“Haha, but he’s not a girl.”
In this situation, I only said that he was younger than me, but he looked so beautiful that she must’ve thought he’s a girl.
“Oh, really? He was so pretty that I thought he was a girl. Child, I’m sorry.”
The lady apologized, but Blake shut his mouth.
Then a child came out of the store.
“Oh! Mom, who is it?”
A boy, who looked about five years old, ran quickly pointing to Blake.
He looked like a very healthy and brave child.
“He’s the customer’s younger brother. Pretty, huh?
The child smiled broadly and kissed Blake on the cheek.
Blake hardened, and I was surprised.
“Oh my! Coby, what are you doing!”
The auntie shouted at her son in surprise.
But Coby smiled brightly.
“I’m going to marry her!”
