His Highness, who was frozen stiff, was still hugging me. I touched his cheeks and… There was no reaction at all.
“You know, Your Highness, I…”
“…Yurie, you don’t have to, you don’t have to push yourself.”
When I called out to him, he finally moved, but that was his reply to me. It’s my own fault that he can’t seem to believe me, it’s the result of my behavior towards him thus far.
Even back then, I have always had the bad habit of keeping my mouth shut. However, right now, I must do everything I can to make things right.
“Confession, I have a confession to make… When I was informed about my engagement with His Highness, I was so excited that I, that I collapsed!”
“Eyes… I was too embarrassed to meet His Highness’ eyes… Because I-I was so nervous about you becoming my husband!”
“Hand, I was worried that my hand was, that my hand would sweat a lot, so I couldn’t hold yours back as much… Hug, whenever you hugged me, I couldn’t help but tremble, it was to the point that I felt like I could even cry out of happiness from your touch!”
“Kissing… kissing you, it felt like I was ascending to Heaven…”
“So… Uhm… I-I’m so sorry, for how, for how I’ve acted… For not, for not putting it… Into proper words… But, really, I’ve never… I never thought of… His Highness the same way as I would my brother… For the longest time… I-I’ve… I’ve liked you… I love you!”
At last, I was able to say it. Finally, I was able to say what I’ve always wanted to tell him.
As I was in tears, because of both pity and embarrassment, His Highness strengthened his embrace on me even more. I buried my face in his chest, so I don’t know his Highness’s expression right now.
“Yurie, was all of that true?”
His Highness relaxed his grip and placed his hand on my cheek, making me look at him. He stared at my eyes, then down my lips. I closed my eyes, and his lips met mine. His tongue touched my lips, and I unconsciously opened them slightly. His Highness’ tongue, taking the chance, slipped in and entwined mine.
It was very sweet and pleasant. As I felt myself getting more comfortable, His Highness touched my dress. I thought the flow of events was a bit… But I didn’t feel like stopping it either, so this could be construed as consent.
In the height of things, I was surprised to be kissed on the palm of my hand suddenly. When I peeked, my eyes met His Highness’ who laughed mischievously, and I couldn’t help but turn away.
“Ah, ah, Your Highness, I’m sorry…”
Because of that, I scolded myself that this kind of reaction wasn’t good, but perhaps because he already knew the answer as to why, His Highness did not look sad, but instead laughed and showed a sly smile on his face.
“…Yurie, could you call me by my name…?”
Now that I think about it, I’ve never called him by name. I really, really, want to get angry with myself for… But now is not the time for that.
“Sama, you don’t need to add that anymore. Since we’d be a married couple by next month anyway.”
That’s right. We will officially be married next month and become husband and wife. When I thought about it, my body trembled, but perhaps because he knew the answer to this as well, His Highness just laughed.
“I’m not sure if you remember. A long time ago, when my magic suddenly ran wild, you… Touched me, and immediately, I calmed down.”
…That did happen. I was a little enlightened then, aware that I had the darkness attribute and that I was the only one who could offset the light attribute Bjorn had…! Actually, there was another way, but I got too enthusiastic and just rushed in, and later my parents got really furious at me.
“Still, I was worried that I might run out of control again, and you told me, you told me that… That everything would be okay.”
I wondered how I could’ve said that so easily at that time; children are really amazing. If I had been able to convey everything in words like back then, I wouldn’t have made Bjorn sad for the last six months… With that in mind, I decided to do my best from now on.
Bjorn, who took off his dress shirt halfway… I was impressed at how good he was at taking it off only to the extent of the view being lethal… He pushed me down to the bed and covered my body with his.
“…Always, I’ve always wanted to touch you like this.”
In this world, once someone gets engaged, no, actually, you don’t even have to get engaged to do it anymore. Despite that, Bjorn had been patiently waiting for me. When I think of how much he cherishes me, I feel more guilty.
He pinched the tip of my breast, and my body trembled with an unfathomable sensation. As it was, the hand that had been stroking my thigh stretched out to grope at the other one. After a moment, Bjorn’s lips made contact with the breast that he had just been playing with.
He gently nibbled and teased my nipple with the tip of his tongue. I couldn’t help wriggling in response to his sucking, all the while unconsciously rocking my hips. When Bjorn noticed the reaction, he pulled his lips away.
“…Eh? Eeek! Ah…!”
Bjorn, who grabbed both my legs, gingerly pushed them open. I turned bright red and covered my face at the situation where I was exposing a place that no one, not even myself, had seen before. All with my legs wide open.
“…I’m sorry, I don’t understand.”
I was about to say something reflexively, but I endured it.
As I trembled and tried to endure the shame, I felt more embarrassed by his words and wanted to just faint then and there. I felt like I was going to die from embarrassment as the strings of my undergarment were untied and stripped off me. As we were, the feeling of his finger entering me alone made me forget about everything else. It was ridiculous.
“Ah… Nnnn! Mmm…”
Without stopping, it rubbed my insides as if searching for something. As I enjoyed the stimulation that also felt a little frustrating, he started playing with my clit. I whimpered, and at the sound of my voice, his finger fervently attacked me until I was full-on moaning.
Before I knew it, the fingers inside me were increased by two. When he rubbed a particular spot with the pad of his finger, I slowly felt a gradual rush of pleasure that made me scream exaggeratedly— Once I reacted like that, the only thing I was able to do was writhe under the increasing pressure put on that spot.
Something was coming, I felt it. My body arched, anticipating the feeling of release, but suddenly he pulled his fingers out.
“No, this is no good…”
What…? When he saw my stunned face, Bjorn, who looked terribly distressed, relaxed in front of me, his hand freeing up his member. It was the first time I’d seen Bjorn’s erect penis, but… It was a little too big. I wondered if this was how it was supposed to be. I wondered how men usually calmed it down.
“Bjo, Bjorn, that, I think it’s impossible to…”
“No, I’m, it’s impossible to…”
I know that our usage of the word impossible was different. It was too much to have come this far just for us to stop.
“Just a little…”
“Just a little…?”
I wondered if I could bear it for just a little while, and when I nodded, he immediately pressed his cock into my hole.
I almost got scared stiff when I recognized the feeling of being entered, remembering his massive size. However, before I could react, he thrust his hips quickly, and I felt filled to the brim.
Bjorn let out a small breath, pushing in and out. A little… I said just a little, right!? My thoughts were interrupted as he thrust deep inside, penetrating my innermost parts. I let out a voice that didn’t sound like it came from a lady.
“A little… I told you just a little bit, didn’t I…!”
“I’m, I’m sorry, I can’t, I can’t stop… Myself right now…”
I couldn’t help but feel my heart throbbing at Bjorn’s expression as he held out his hand, holding my face in place. His expression was so charming and desperate that I didn’t know how to describe it, whether he was in pain or pleasure.
“Ah… Hold… On…”
By the look on his face, it seemed that I had unconsciously tightened up, making Bjorn let out a pained sound. What should I do? I’m so happy that I might just faint… I can’t do that, though it hurts a lot.
He called out my name in a pained voice, kissing me all over. It made me so happy that the pain I felt was instantly blown away. I wanted to accept him fully, even if I had to push myself a little… I wrapped my arms around his neck and smiled. Only then did Bjorn open his eyes.
“Bjorn, I’m fine, you can, you can do whatever you want…”
Bjorn took a deep breath and pulled out until only half of the tip was inside me before pushing it back in, all in one go. The bed creaked, the sound of our skin colliding with each other’s, and the sound of our ragged breaths echoed throughout the room, and finally, when he grabbed me by my back, releasing his load inside me, I was full of happiness.
After everything settled, we got married without any other obstacles and are now very happy. Sissle, I’ve been told, ended up with a man who didn’t appear in the game that I remembered.
In the end, I still had no idea if those memories were really from my previous life or if it was just my delusion, but the truth doesn’t matter either way because everyone’s happy with how things worked out.
