A Clue (1)
“This is a big problem.”
She could tell while kissing him in his hard arms.
He was hesitating now.
And she noticed that the cause was Arthur.
She pushed his arms away, removed his lips that seemed unlikely to leave, and stepped back from him a couple of steps.
“I am greedy.
Is it Arthur Do you love him”
Can she say she loves him With this emotion No, does it make sense that she loves someone If it’s a feeling of love, it’s like that.
She looked at Nox without saying a word.
Perhaps because of the deep darkness, she couldn’t see his expression well, so she frowned.
She answered, avoiding his gaze.
She didn’t know if that’s the answer he wanted.
“I think I love you.”
At that moment, Nox’s eyes flashed.
She felt like the moon in the night sky was shining on her.
No, it’s clearly shining on Nox.
“When answering, make eye contact.
You should look at me and tell me, Mary.”
A feeling of intimidation came over her to where she cannot turn her head.
The strange airflow blooming around him was weighing down because it couldn’t suppress her.
She couldn’t breathe, so she even lost her mind.
She struggled to see him, holding onto her fading consciousness.
He was right in front of her.
When did he get as far away as he did
As only incomprehensible situations continued, anger soared, as patience seemed to have been cut off.
Why was there no decent human being here Including her.
She raised her hand, clasping her neck, and stared at Nox.
He didn’t stop until she reached her limit, as if he was going to take her breath away, stronger than he could tighten.
“……As expected, I’m greedy.
I want it.”
As Nox’s eyes eased, the fear, and power that weighed on her disappeared.
He kissed the back of her neck, where the marks of her hand, which she had tightened, remained intact.
His eyes were still on her.
The persistent eyes and unknown emotions stuck to the whole body, giving her goosebumps.
“Unfortunately, I can’t sign a contract.”
“Then we won’t see each other again.”
“You said you have a question for me, right I’ll answer one thing instead, on the premise that you will call me next time.”
“The medicine you gave me.
Can I live if I take that medicine”
Nox seemed to have expected another question.
Seeing that his eyes became smaller and bigger, he seemed quite embarrassed.
Nevertheless, it was also surprising that there was no change in expression.
Can people control their emotions like that Was he really a devil, not a person
Other than minor changes, she couldn’t notice what he was feeling now.
“There’s only one question you can ask me.
Mary, are you really curious about that”
Is she really curious What else should she be curious about other than what she needs now
She had nothing to say if she looked like a wriggling bug to him, struggling to live.
“What’s more important than living and dying”
“For example, the seat of the Emperor The things you can get.”
“That’s nothing if you die.
Status Fame Authority Wealth It’s only meaningful when you’re alive.
It’s important for me to lead a life and to have tomorrow even when I open my eyes.
Other things are incidental accordingly.”
Nox kept smiling around his mouth to see if the answer was fun.
Even with her sharp voice, he did not care and encouraged the next answer.
As if to tell her more quickly, the eyes full of interest looked like Arthur.
“As long as I live, it means I’ll take care of everything else.
So you can answer the question I asked.
Whether the drug is something that can make me live or not.”
“Well, unfortunately, I can only answer in this way.”
“Maybe it’s the way or maybe not.”
Her face crumpled.
She didn’t call him that night, only to hear this kind of answer.
Of course, she didn’t mean to call him.
She didn’t expect to give such a sincere answer to the person whom she kissed and proposed a contract with.
Without realizing it, she looked at Nox with a sharp gaze.
He said he was greedy, but he doesn’t even know how to capture people’s hearts
He said he was a devil, and he was someone that would satisfy her desires.
She was annoyed for no reason.
She wiped her lips with the back of her hand and turned around to get away from him.
‘I didn’t think much.
If he knew Arthur, he wouldn’t tell me easily.
This was to get somethin, like a fool.’
It was a blurred judgment of the moment.
She thought she was already fascinated the first time she saw it after saying she wouldn’t be possessed.
In any sense, he may have been imprinted in her head and walked into something magical that she couldn’t forget and couldn’t help but find.
A lot of time has passed and Arthur may now find her strange.
If he found out that she met him, her weaknesses that she had difficulty hiding would be revealed.
Perhaps he already knew how she would have acted.
If that was it, if it was Arthur as he knew everything about Mary.
Even she, who entered Mary’s body, was always caught by him.
“Wow, but I can’t believe you turned around at once.
That’s too much.”
“Since I didn’t hear the necessary answer, what else is left between us I just wanted to ask you something I was curious about in the first place.”
“There’s no reason for the devil and warmth to go together.”
“Your lips are quite warm.
Of course, my arms would have been warm, too.”
