Chapter 26 - Second First Night (19+)
“What can’t you perform well?” he asked.
Edna fidgeted for a moment and, a little red in the face, eventually murmured to Eli, “I mean… I can’t satisfy you.”
‘Is that really what you meant? Do you think I’ll believe you if you say it with that bashful expression? Why do you say that when you’ve already pushed me into a storm of passion? Do you perhaps want to hide your true self from me?’
Eli squinted his eyes and brooded, looking down at her. In fact, there was a reason why he offered to share the same room with her. Her shocking actions from the cave were still vivid in his head. Her resistance, which was not as strong as a man’s, but with keen resilience, fueled his doubts. His desire for her was a complementary reason. Thinking of how he could keep a close watch on her if they lived in the same room, he dismissed her words. “What nonsense! Are you trying to avoid me with a foolish excuse when you’re already making me so excited? Don’t you just hate me because I’m a commoner?”
Edna sighed softly, realizing that Eli would not back down. The nobles usually did not share a room with their wives. The aristocratic men could take any woman as they pleased, and the wife from a political marriage was just a tool for them to get a successor. But this man was a commoner, not an aristocrat, and his words were direct. She instinctively realized that she had to obey him in order to hide her identity, but fear made it difficult for her to move and she took a deep breath.
That was when Eli firmly grabbed her hand and put it on his manhood. He let out a cold, cynical laugh at the horrified Edna. “I’ll tell you one more thing while I’m at it. I’m glad you’re not Anna. If you were Anna, I would have lost interest in you. But you’re constantly provoking me. I don’t know why, but since you offer me fun and I intend to enjoy it, it would be good for you to just accept me, Duchess.”
Edna shuddered as she felt his pulsating manhood. It seemed to be getting bigger and bigger under her touch; it was moving vividly beneath the thin fabric. She gulped down her saliva and gazed at his excited dark blue eyes.
His heart throbbed unknowingly when she looked at him with those strange golden eyes. It had only been two days since he met her, but his heart pounded every time he saw her. Eli approached her closely, bowed his head, and covered her lips with his. Edna had to accept his kiss as he came upon her.
His lips were dry and cracked. The shadows from the candlelight danced on his strong, manly face. His frightfully disciplined shoulders and muscular arms slowly wound around her waist, hugging her. Only then did Edna’s hand, stuck in his grasp, find freedom. She grabbed him by the arm, puzzled as to what to do with her hands.
Eli carefully explored her mouth and stroked her smooth back with both hands. She took a deep breath as her spine heated up. His rough beard tingled her skin, but it was nothing compared to the heat that spread through her every time his lips moved. Edna closed her eyes softly, her long, dark eyelashes casting an enchanting shade, making her look even more appetizing.
The strings of her dress were untied by him, making her stand in nothing but her cotton underwear. He then moved his lips to the hollow of her collarbone and caressed her entire body. She was slender, but he could feel the hint of muscles on her, which were a little different from other women’s. Her skin felt soft but disciplined, completely different from the tender and flaccid skin texture Eli had experienced before.
He picked her up and sprawled her on the bed. Taking off the remainder of her clothes and tossing them to the floor, Eli looked through her body with a sharp look and wondered what she would look like if the ugly heap of red at the tips of her hair disappeared. She seemed to have deliberately messed with her appearance to evade everyone’s attention. Eli, whose gaze traveled all the way from her dark eyelashes until it met her golden bush, was convinced of his thoughts.
Edna bit her lips to stifle a moan as his lips landed on her chest. It was such an unbelievably soft gesture that she had a hard time believing he had this aspect to him. It was as if he were worshipping her body. Edna slowly opened her eyes and looked at his broad shoulders, feeling as if he was brandishing her with his hot lips.
She could not prevent a moan from escaping her at his deft caress. Listening to her moaning, Eli fondled her more thoroughly, fumbled with her breasts persistently with his lips and tongue, and drove a hand down her flat abdomen and thighs, groping between her legs.
Edna flinched, feeling the tingling sensation from his touch. As his fingers slid gently into her depths, Edna reached with her arms and grabbed Eli’s strong shoulders. He shuddered at her touch and pushed his fingers deeper in.
