Schuden was silent for a moment. Valia rarely showed her emotions, and because of that, she was an unpredictable person. But he did not expect that she would ask something completely different from what he was expecting.
“There is not.”
Valia opened her eyes wide.
“I thought there would be like one or two places that I cannot get into.”
“Does it make sense for there to be places where the lady of the house cannot go? Well, there are a lot of sharp weapons in the weapon storage so you have to be careful there.”
The Imperial Palace had more places that could not be entered than those that could be entered, but since this was a noble’s manor, it would not be as strict. But Valia thought he would tell her not to enter his office, the inner part of the exhibition room, or somewhere else like that. As she remained silent, Schuden frowned slightly.
“Did someone say something to you while I was away?”
When a wedding with a lot of differences in status happened, the existing employees often lorded over and secretly harassed the new spouse. He wondered if the same had happened to her while he was at the training ground.
Valia hurriedly shook her head. All of the employees, including Paul and Sarah, were very kind and polite to her.
“It wasn’t that, everyone is really nice to me. I was just worried.”
“If anyone crosses the line, please tell me right away. There’s no need to defend them.”
“Yes, don’t worry.”
Valia smiled at him, meaning that he could rest assured. Schuden loosened up his expression. Her silvery-gray eyes looked resolute even on the first day they met. She would know what to do. She did not seem likely to lie to him.
“Any more questions?”
“Oh, there is one.”
She will talk about the tarts this time.
Schuden kept his eyes on her.
“When do we need to go to the palace? Nobles below the duke of the Empire and above the count of the capital must attend an audience with the Emperor when they get married.”
“…We need to go to the palace within a week after the wedding ceremony. Paul must have already adjusted the formal dress to the same size as your wedding dress. He must have also obtained a book on Imperial customs.”
“I see. Thank you for your concern.”
Valia flashed a smile and Schuden looked at her with a blank look. Valia blinked her eyes as he stared at her. Her silvery-gray eyes were filled with questions but she never mentioned the tart at all.
How would she react if I told her I ate all the tarts?
Anyhow, this bride had no intention of talking about that. Perhaps she was not curious about it. After all, most nobles were like that. They paid no mind after sending something. Schuden tilted his head and lowered his body toward Valia who was staring at him. He could not see the reaction he wanted so he had no choice but to see another reaction.
He kissed her right away.
It was an unexpected kiss. Valia was a little flustered but she did not refuse him. As Schuden had guessed in advance, Valia liked kissing with him. It had a unique sense of touch, and above all, it made her get butterflies in her stomach. It felt like an expression of love for lovers. She was not used to it yet so her body trembled for nothing.
Schuden tilted his chin slightly. He caught a glimpse of Valia through his squinted eyes. He wondered at the back of his mind about what kind of face she had when they had a normal kiss like this.
Valia was kissing him with her eyes closed. It was nothing special, but seeing her white face concentrating on him made him feel a sense of déjà vu. Specifically, he was reminded of their intercourse yesterday.
This won’t do.
Even though Valia accepted his kiss for pure reasons, Schuden was rotten and could not admire her properly.
So Schuden lifted his chin slightly. He asked.
“Did you call a doctor today?”
It was a little hard to walk in the morning but it slowly got better. Other than that, there was no discomfort.
“No, I didn’t call one. Why are you asking?”
“Well, it seems that your body is fine.”
“Yes, I’m fi…”
Valia was about to answer without much thought. Then, she found out about the meaning behind Schuden’s question a beat later.
A blush appeared on Valia’s cheeks. Schuden laughed slightly. Never in his life, he had such fun in making someone blush. It was only a little different with her wife. She was the daughter of a knight and she was so mature and calm in front of many nobles. But why was she so shy about this? This gap was new and interesting.
Schuden tugged at the waistband of Valia’s gown. The skilled maids excellently tied the ribbon so it could be untied with just a little force. As the ribbon loosened, the front flap opened. Valia’s chest was immediately exposed.
The kiss marks that Valia found in the bath and was so embarrassed about were now revealed. Unlike in the morning, there was no time to be ashamed. Valia was lying on her back in no time. Schuden placed his elbow on the pillow on which he laid her down and lowered his head. He came in through the crack and strongly bound the root of her tongue.
A soft moan escaped between her soft lips. Schuden lifted his head only after pouring kisses on Valia enough to satisfy her. Perhaps because of the deep kiss, but she was short of breath. Schuden gently caressed Valia’s body with his callused hands. But what was buried in his touch was a deep desire. Valia’s eyes trembled slightly.
It was only the second day. Schuden’s caresses were still embarrassing. But honestly, she liked it. He seemed to regard Valia’s whole body as a place to kiss. Her neck, as well as her breasts and navel area were basic. Her arms, the back of her hand, waist, inner thighs, calves, and even her toes were fair game.
Some parts were just ticklish but other parts strangely aroused Valia. And Schuden noticed those parts so quickly that he would arouse them on purpose. The place where Valia reacted the most was none other than her earlobes.
Her shoulders trembled. Valia had no idea that her earlobes were so sensitive. The sound of his lips wet with saliva caressing her ears was so erotic. She was about to run out of strength. Valia clenched her thighs. Her inner self was pulled strangely and it seemed to tickle a little.
Seeing Valia panting a bit, Schuden reached out to the bed head. There was the bottle of oil used on their nuptial night. Strictly speaking, tonight was no longer the nuptial night, but since she was hurting yesterday, he did not know how it would go today. Besides, there was nothing wrong with being careful. Schuden smeared the hot and smooth liquid on his finger. He dug towards Valia’s vaginal opening.
Valia’s inner walls were too hot, Schuden felt that way more because his body temperature was on the cold side. He needed to apply oil to widen this narrow space for it to be less painful during penetration.
What started out as one finger quickly increased to two and then three. Every time his fingers went deep, Valia’s inner thighs trembled and she gave out a light moan. It was her physiological response but it was also overly arousing for Schuden. He took off his gown and threw it to the floor.
As he did on their first night, he also rubbed the oil on his penis. Even though her body was loosened by the foreplay, Valia was still a little nervous. She did not call a doctor but it was still painful.
‘He said that the first time really hurts, so today won’t be as painful as yesterday.’
Valia comforted herself and relaxed. Her belief about Schuden that had been formed during the nuptial night had also played a big role in her mental stability. When she showed that she was hurting, he would hug her right away. He neither looked annoyed nor offended. His kisses, as if to soothe her, were so sweet.
After slowly having been rubbing the opening, his penis began to come in.
The pressure of penetrating the narrow space was still heavy. Her pussy seemed to be filled. Schuden looked at Valia. His red eyes, which had deepened all of a sudden, were watching her reaction. Valia shook her head.
“…It, hnh, doesn’t hurt.”
That was the last proper sentence that Valia said.
“Hngh! Ah, mmph!”
Every time Schuden’s waist moved, Valia’s boobs bounced in an erotic way. He grabbed her waist and pounded her nonstop. Her hot and humid vagina did not give way easily, but once he penetrated deeper, it clenched tightly and did not let go. The irregular bumps clenched his penis in all kinds of ways and stimulated him.
Besides, she said it did not hurt today.
Although Valia was not aware of it, the word ‘hurt’ from her was like the last defense to Schuden. It could be told just by looking at how they ended relatively nice on their first night even though he was so turned on. Since she let down her defenses, Schuden coveted Valia more fiercely than the day before.
Valia wrapped her arms around Schuden’s neck and gasped for air. His large and hard penis penetrated her vagina without hesitation. He pulled it out just before the tip came out and pushed it all the way to the root, the strength of his hard penis was not something that Valia could handle.
He knew exactly where her erogenous zone was. As Schuden pierced that place mercilessly several times, Valia gasped so much that her throat hurt. A feeling of intense pleasure, which was completely different from before, made Valia’s toes shrivel. Her body was so strangely hot that she felt like running away.
“Schu, hngh! Ah, stop…”
Valia nodded her head lightly with tears in her eyes. In the meantime, his hips did not stop pounding and Valia had to swallow her breath. Schuden grabbed her wrists. When his rough thrusting slowed down a bit, Valia barely took a breath.
Schuden penetrated her enough to make a sound.
“Just by going in…”
“…and do not let me go.”
How can I stop?
His raspy voice was mixed with moans. His breathing was choked with every word he spoke.
He got dizzy.
Schuden wiped the tears from Valia’s eyes with his lips. That was the last ‘rest’ she had.
“Hngh! Ah, hmph…!”
The more Schuden moved back and forth, the more her head went dizzy. Her shaking body was being overwhelmed. An exhilarating sensation came out from her lower abdomen where the flesh hit. Even if she clenched her toes, she could not control this feeling that climbed up her back.
And at some point just before Schuden ejaculated, Valia’s vagina, which was clenching his penis, convulsed strongly. Schuden let out a moan at the strong stimulation. As there was no warning, he could not stand it. Even if it was not for that, his pent-up semen was released as it was.
Valia’s thigh trembled without mercy. Tears were falling down from her silvery-gray eyes. Her whole body trembled at the climax she experienced for the first time in her life. The pleasure that came for a while during the first night rushed without a break, making her view hazy for a moment.
The orgasm that had tormented Valia and made her sensitive did not last long. He could see her body slowly subside. Schuden asked.
“Are you okay now?”
“Did it hurt?”
Valia shook her head with slightly red cheeks. It did not hurt.
“Well, hmm, I think the oil has a good effect. For the time being… Can we keep using it?”
So it went for the first night, so it went for today. Valia’s body did not hurt as much as she was nervous. She believed it was all thanks to the fragrant oil.
“If you like it, I don’t see why we shouldn’t continue using it.”
Schuden was already fiddling with Valia’s earlobes.
“But I don’t think you need to use it anymore.”
Even though she was embarrassed, she was still curious. Schuden faced the silver-gray eyes that were filled with questions and replied.
“You lubricate yourself just fine.”
She was flustered and just blinked only for a moment. Something was strange. Valia could distinguish at least the desire of the man touching her body. No, she could probably tell because it was Schuden. Because he did not hide his desire for her.
Just like now.
They definitely did it just now. Valia wondered why the touch caressing under her waist was so tenacious. She was embarrassed because the hands touching her thighs and squeezing her ass felt like foreplay. Her questions did not last long. She felt a hard object that somehow had erected again through her thighs.
‘It’s not over even after doing it once? But why is this…’
Valia was at a loss for what to do.
He kissed her again.
- Permeated Emotions
The great temple located in the holy nation was like the mother of all temples, the building itself was a beautiful temple that evoked awe. This morning, after Philemon left the Gel Empire and returned to the temple, he looked at the regular priest with a pale complexion in front of him. It was the priest that was supposed to officiate the wedding of Marquess Garth.
“I have nothing to say, High Priest.”
“Why did things come to this point? Don’t you know your name is already on the wedding stamp?”
“About that… The Second Temple where you stayed for a while could produce a new stamp, so I thought you made a new one there.”
Philemon sighed. This administrative error occurred because it was rare for a High Priest to stand as a wedding officiant.
In fact, even if Philemon himself heard ‘The High Priest is attending the wedding,’ he would have thought that he was attending as the wedding officiant. It was not one person’s fault, it was also his fault for not conveying the details clearly.
“I will bear all the responsibilities.”
“Forget it. How can you take responsibility for what has already happened?”
In any case, Marquess Garth had not made a formal complaint, but it was not reasonable to just shut his mouth and move on. So, Philemon planned to personally go to him and apologize. A High Priest did not bow his head to just anyone, but he was not in a situation to care about saving face.
“I will put in a good word with the Marquess. Please be careful so that this does not happen in the future.”
“Thank you, thank you, High Priest.”
The regular priest bowed in succession. The restless priests who lined up behind him sighed in relief. It was just a couple of days ago that they were truly delighted, saying that receiving the blessing of the High Priest would bring luck to the Marquess. They really did not know it was going to be like this.
‘Being too kind is also a problem, tsk tsk.’
Philemon was well aware that they meant no harm so he had no intention of punishing them. Moreover, Marquess Garth did not seem too offended. On the day of the wedding, Philemon, who was well treated as a guest, had the opportunity to talk to Schuden. At that time, he was nervous about the temple’s mistake, so he apologized to him. But Schuden simply responded by saying, ‘When done in a place other than a battlefield, it is right to move on from one’s first mistake.’
As that was how Marquess Garth reacted, if he visited his house in person and apologized sincerely, it would definitely be resolved.
“Why did you do that, High Priest Philemon?”
As Philemon was about to end it, he heard a voice.
“If he has made a mistake, he ought to be punished. Isn’t that the principle that God Himself taught us?”
“…High Priest Mercille.”
The regular priests bowed their heads to Mercille, another High Priest who entered the room after opening the door. Mercille walked up to Philemon without giving a single glance to the priests.
“Long time no see, High Priest Philemon.”
“Yes, it’s really been a while, High Priest Mercille. By the way, what you just said…”
“It’s exactly as you heard, High Priest Philemon. This is clearly the temple’s mistake so the Marquess should be compensated accordingly. And the one who makes mistakes should be severely punished.”
“High Priest Mercille.”
Philemon’s voice became a little perplexed.
“What kind of punishment are you thinking of?”
“Well… it’s a serious offense to defame the temple, so how about excommunicating him?”
The regular priest’s face turned pale. Excommunication was akin to a death sentence, perhaps an even more dreadful punishment for a priest. A priest would rather die than be excommunicated. It was as if a person who had inherited the divine will had fallen into a hell abandoned by God. Philemon’s face slightly tensed up. Mercille, who had his eyes down and examined his face, grinned mercifully.
“But High Priest Philemon is so generous. So let’s just move on.”
“…Thank you. Generosity is one of the basics of a priest so God will be very pleased.”
“Don’t mention it. Your generosity is bigger than mine. You’ve even proceeded to move on for such a grave matter.”
Although Mercille stealthily criticized him, Philemon looked at the regular priests without showing any expression.
“Everyone, say your greetings to High Priest Mercille and leave.”
“Thank you, High Priest Mercille.”
The regular priests expressed their gratitude and rushed out. Mercille even sent out all the paladins escorting the High Priests. The drawing-room became quiet. It was Mercille who spoke first.
“To your great credit, this wedding went so well.”
“No. The temple princess… No, it’s only right to call her Marchioness Garth now. It went well because the Marchioness and the Marquess are meant to be.”
Mercille burst into laughter as if he just heard nonsense. His laughter did not occur because of joy, but because it was absurd.
“How can the daughter of the knight of a small kingdom be meant to be with a dignified Marquess of the Empire? Even too much modesty could become a poison, High Priest Philemon.”
Philemon’s eyes slightly calm down at the words that looked down at Valia. The impressive young lady with silvery-gray eyes that he met face to face was not a person worthy of being disgraced simply as ‘the daughter of the knight of a small kingdom’. But Philemon chose silence, it was a wise response.
“Oh, by the way, High Priest Philemon.”
When Philemon did not answer, Mercille spoke again.
“Did you grant her the blessing to evoke the temptation of her body? You didn’t forget, did you?”
“I remember. You personally gave the suggestion.”
“Yes. it would have been more accurate if I had gone and done it myself but I was invited by the Hildon Kingdom…”
Mercille chuckled and clicked his tongue.
“If Hildon’s Queen was not a devout believer, I would not have gone. How could she invite a High Priest just because the Princess is sick? Even though I also went to work on matters related to the rebuilding of the temple, I can’t help but feel unpleasant.”
“You’re just gaining your virtues. Don’t be too offended.”
“You’re right. Thanks to that, there will be no problems in rebuilding the temple.”
Mercille shrugged, looking a little arrogant.
“Let’s continue what we talked about earlier. Has she been blessed? It’s a preventive measure just in case the temple princess does not like the Marquess.”
Philemon nodded slowly. At that moment, satisfaction spread across Mercille’s face.
“Well done. I know that you’re reluctant to offer those kinds of blessings, but it was a necessary step in order to somehow keep a fragile relationship from breaking apart.”
“I know. Didn’t you say that before?”
Philemon did not like the ‘physical temptation’ blessing from the beginning. The blessing, wrapped in poetic words, was nothing more than an aphrodisiac. How could a reverent divine power distributed and blessed by God himself be used for a mere physical relationship? For Philemon, it was a blessing that was no less than blasphemy. But Mercille insisted that it be done.
[How can a woman with no background be loved by the Marquess?]
[If you continue to refuse, it will lead to misfortune for the temple princess. Even though she is a princess who will only perform the role of sacrifice, do you really want that, High Priest Philemon?]
Of course, Philemon did not want other people’s misfortune to happen. She was chosen by God and became the temple princess, but that did not mean she had to give up her happiness as a human too. Mercille seemed to think that Philemon was feeling some sort of guilt in his conscience.
Mercille said as if to soothe him.
“It is the divine will.”
“I am aware of it.”
“The minimum is 2 years.”
“Yes. It was rare for such a clear oracle.”
A fake for the real and a real for the fake.
