Chapter 5 – Archduke Kyle Romani (2)
It seems he didn’t expect my statement
Kyle looked over me as if he were waiting for my next words, so I continued on.
“I want to get along with you.”
I knew that there were still human emotions left in him.
I hope to see them when we get closer.
The smile on my face grew bigger as I said this, however, he replied with a sour look.
“Don’t say such useless things. From now on, don’t answer back to my words.”
“Why can’t I answer back? Do you expect a person who can talk to not converse with each other? I meant everything that I said. More than anything else, I’d like to get along with you while we’re together.”
I quickly retorted his cold words with a bright smile. I was pretty confident about my appearance too. Originally, Riddel was the most beautiful woman in the story. She had brilliant blond hair and emerald eyes that she was proud about. However, Kyle didn’t really look that much interested in her appearance right now. Rather, he had a nervous look on his face.
“I don’t think you’ve got a grasp of the situation yet, I’ll let it pass today. Let’s go to bed.”
“Okay, I was tired too.”
I retorted his words once again, but he didn’t respond to it. I could see him walk from the couch with a sharp look on his face. Before I realized it, Kyle’s expression changed as he sat on the sofa, it became subtle.
“What the hell are you doing?” He asked monotonously, I was speechless.
“Can’t you see? I’m taking off my clothes. I can’t sleep in this bridal gown.”
“Don’t waste your time and go call a maid.”
“I’m not exaggerating, this gown is quite hard to take off, why should I call a maid? There’s a person right here that can help me.”
“If you didn’t understand my words, then I’ll say it simply, could you come here and help me take my clothes off?”
He didn’t move a muscle. It seemed that he wasn’t willing to help me. Upon seeing this, my face frowned.
“Excuse me, Archduke? Can you please help me on my first night here?”
“Do you really want to die in my hands?”
“Before I die in your hands, I’ll probably die because of this stuffy gown that I can’t take off.”
I desperately looked at his eyes with a signal for help. I couldn’t really help it, this gown was too hard to take off alone, and it felt really stuffy inside.
If this gown is already too hard to take off, what about the daily dress that I have to wear? Ahhh… I’m already stressed just by imagining it.
Even while I was in a distressed situation, he still had a calm face on. He didn’t even lift a finger to help me. Then, I pointed my finger at the drawer with a frown on my face.
“If you’re so scared of touching me, why don’t you wear gloves? It’s over there in the drawer.”
“Who said that I’m afraid to touch you? Gloves? What are you talking about?” Kyle suddenly asked.
With a crumpled face, Kyle walked to the drawer, he then stood still for a moment after wearing a white glove.
What’s wrong with him?
Whatever it was, I decided to stay confident and asked for his help.
“If you found the gloves, could you please come and help me take off my gown instead of just staying still? When we’re done with me, I’ll help you to take off your clothes too. It must be uncomfortable to sleep with those clothes on.”
“You’ve been saying such crazy things since earlier.”
“I’m not being crazy, I’m being sincere to …Ahh!”
My voice stopped because there was a sudden shadow above my head.
Is this some kind of magic? While thinking this, a chilling sensation crept behind my neck. I could feel his hand was about to touch my nape. He then whispered behind me.
“If I touch your neck now, you’ll die once I hold onto you until you freezee.”
“Don’t talk back to me, you don’t have any right to do that. If you don’t want to die, keep your mouth shut.”
This was a warning from him. I was surprised for a moment, however I soon calmed down.
I already expected this situation.
“Kill me then.” I answered with a smile.
He was silent. Honestly, I wasn’t confident enough to say those words. It was an extremely risky move. But I still continued on with what I wanted to say.
“…I know you’re not gonna kill me, it’s because you don’t like to kill people.”
I knew he still had human emotions inside him, he would often withstand his desire to kill. In fact, there were also days when he didn’t get tempted by the Dragon’s emotions. Kyle clicked his tongue, it seemed that he didn’t like what I said, after a moment, the chilling feel behind my neck disappeared.
“I’m too astonished, I don’t even want to kill you now.”
Despite it being a cruel tone, there was no venom in his voice. He opened his mouth again as if he wanted to say something.
“It’s not you, my name’s Riddel.”
