Chapter 54 – Don’t you feel uncomfortable changing all of a sudden?
Translator: SKAIS Editor: SKAIS
Since then, Ricdorian, who seemed to have wanted to say something, hesitated. I could hardly hear what he muttered at the end. It was as if his voice was stuck in his throat.
Anyway, you don’t know why you’re flipping into animal mode at some point, do you?
“Well, you don’t know why, do you? I think it would be more convenient for you if you knew what situation you’re in or the cause of your sudden changes.”
I knew for sure that even Ricdorian would feel uncomfortable whenever he shifts. He’s still a human, after all.
Ricdorian, who was now hugging his shoulder tightly, raised his head and tilted it a little. When swiftly….
Hearing him, I burst into laughter.
…Ha! Look at this.
You’ve changed suddenly, didn’t you?
Those eyes gawking at me were very innocent, like a newborn child, sinless, and untainted.
However, when I looked closely, I felt something unusual.
It was like the pure feeling I sensed earlier was gone as fast as the wind.
Ah, Ricdorian, who was now a beast version of himself, didn’t bark at me but strode towards me.
“No, don’t bite.”
I quickly pulled my leg back.
And for some reason, Ricdorian, who had been biting the end of my clothes, looked like he was about to cry. It might be possible that stepping back away from him made him feel like that. He must’ve concluded I abhorred being near him.
“I won’t get close to you if you bite. Instead, I’ll go back to my cell.”
“…Do you understand?”
…I doubt he understood it clearly. But he did what I said. So I assumed he grasp situations through instincts?
I wish you could just tell me what you’re buying here.
I was about to sigh when I suddenly remembered what was in my pocket.
I didn’t plan on bringing these from the beginning, but… There were still snacks left in my pockets. Good timing!
When I opened the pouch I grabbed inside, Ricdorian’s eyes sparkled like fireworks in a New Year’s sky.
Hmmm. You like what you see, huh?
“I’ll give you a snack before I go.”
It’s been quite a while, and it was about time for me to get ready to go back. I stepped back a little and narrowed the distance between my two hands, peeled off the bag of candies. But when I was about to tear it apart.
I was startled because Ricdorian’s hand held mine tightly. I almost loosen my hold on the bag.
Is he back? Is Ricdorian sane now?
“What’s wrong?” I questioned.
However, there was no response from him. It was a little uncanny. Only then, I was able to apprehend what was happening after observing him.
His breathing was a little rough. It was as if he was having a hard time doing so.
Then, it wasn’t just a strange feeling. He was sick!
Surprised, I grabbed him by the cheeks to check his temperature.
He’s hot, right? He’s literally boiling hot right now!
A few minutes ago, he was still fine. But now, he looked pale as if color had left his body, and his complexion wasn’t that red as he usually is… This is worse than a person who has a very high fever. I just couldn’t figure out what this is.
While grabbing my hand tightly, he leaned his head. I couldn’t even push him away because I could feel his suffering from his rough breathings on my shoulder.
Oh no. Are you seriously that sick?
The thought of Ricdorian going through the same situation flashed in my mind. Yes. That time when I was doing the spell of Jair. He also felt this sick.
But I didn’t think this state would happen during his beast mode. Is it possible? That he’s going through the process of having the form of that Ricdorian four years from now?
Because as I recall, he was in his rational condition when his changes occurred before.
On which side does this really occur? I’m so confused.
It was a moment when I was contemplating whether to touch his hair or not. I wanted to ease his pain but..
Wait a minute.
…was Ricdorian’s body this big?
The hand that was holding me was bigger than I remembered. And his shoulders were so broad that it felt like he immersed himself in doing physical training.
Everything was so strange that I was so unsure of what to do. Why was I not able to notice this?
He was no longer a boy in a loose prison uniform.
Soon, the young man with a figure of an adult slowly lifted his head. He looked full-grown like that of Ricdorian 4 years from now, hunk and sturdy.
I swallowed a lump as I saw those strangely long eyelashes and gorgeous eyes up close.
Hey, it’s close. It’s very close!
“…are you going to give it to me?”
“Are you going to give it to me? That’s what I asked.”
He moved his red lips to lift the corners of his mouth.
“Well, I mean…Master?” What? No. That’s not it. Absolutely not that.
“No. Iana.” I said sternly.
“Oh… yes, that’s it. Iana.”
He kept saying my name over and over again, making sure that he would never forget it.
The hotness of his body hadn’t receded yet, and his bloodshot eyes had been burning. His whole being right now created an odd feeling.
“That, are you going to give it to me?”
I nodded while alternately looking at the candy and his face…more like a bewildered nod.
I was thinking of giving this to him swiftly and then leave him. But I doubt that will happen.
My hand that was on Ricdorian’s cheek was now held captive. And he held me steady using his other hand, then tilted his head as it was.
And his sweaty silver hair shakes.
What a beautiful sight!
Ugh! The more I stay here, the more I become enthralled by his enchanting beauty.
He grabbed the bag of candy from me, placed his hand on one side and the other on his mouth. And the bag of candy was torn open.
Why do you have to open it with your mouth? You could use your hands, you know.
I wanted to say that, but I know it would be useless as it’s already been done.
Soon, the decadent atmosphere made me shut up.
Afterward, his eyes bent lightly.
“Now, because I ripped it off. You can feed me, right?”
…Yeah, right, and then I would return to my cell to sleep.
“…okay, eat it.”
I moved my hands in defeat and was about to feed him. But I stopped. As there was no need to do so at all, for he already did the job himself.
He moved his head, opened his mouth, and bit the candy with his teeth.
I happened to see this sight close, and I felt skeptical for a while, so I immediately tried to pull my hands out.
If only he hadn’t caught me again.
“Are you going back now?”
The animal-like glare was half languid.
Why does it feel like I should be careful of what to answer him?
“… I’m going to sleep now.” I said.
“Yes. Go to sleep.” Ricdorian said, still staring at me.
And soon, a low voice whispered to me. “Here.”
