Chapter 33 – Insatiable Thirst
Soldiers gathered around the walls and busied themselves with making oiled arrows. They focused on what they were doing as the king passed by them from time to time.
Larks wear a shield-like material filled with special energy all over their body that ordinary weapons could not breach. Therefore, the soldiers’ attacks were carried out with the use of special oiled arrows or swords.
However, since the effect of the oiled weapon was half a day long, the soldiers had to work constantly on replenishing its oils.
Kasser stopped walking and stared out at the desert.
“The heat of the sun is different this time, my King.” Lester, the general who was assisting the king silently from behind, told him.
“Yes, it’s definitely different from yesterday,” he replies
“The wind is soft. I always think, but it’s absurd that the weather is better when you’re stuck in a wall.”
“I think the weather that isn’t severe at a time when we can’t relax the most helps boost soldiers’ morale.”
Kasser smiled lightly.
“That’s another way to look at it I suppose.”
Lester was relieved that the king did not look uncomfortable. She assisted the king and went out to the desert together and returned a few days ago and belatedly learned of the queen’s disappearance.
It was overheard that the couple was not well-matched. But Lester thought that only a couple knew about it. So, she tried not to be curious about the royal couple’s work.
‘It must have worked out well. I’m glad.” she mused in thought.
Lester was a woman. The king is stingy in expressing his feelings, but she has been a mother for a long time, so she can understand his feelings to some extent.
Kasser put one hand on his chest. He contemplated at the Praz that was crouching inside. At the beginning of the activity period, Praz was always keen to reveal his presence. But this time it was strangely quiet.
“Why is he so calm?’ he thinks to himself.
Since yesterday, the movement of Praz has been strange. It was not unusual in a bad sense. It was similar to the state in which a full beast was satiated, that it remains lounging, basking in the aftermath of his pleasure. But he couldn’t understand more than that.
When he pumped energy into her body yesterday, it was for the sole purpose of helping the Queen. It was an act prepared for some sacrifice. As expected, he should have suffered some internal injuries. Far from hitting, however, Praz turned out to be in better shape.
The King’s Praz and Anika’s Ramita were polar opposites in their basic qualities. Destruction and creation, of course, did not fit together.
Their abilities, much like water and oil, also affected their affinity for each other. So the king and Anika rarely attracted each other in a rational sense. It was also one of the crucial reasons why it was not easy for the king to produce their own successor.
The Hashi Kingdom was already more difficult because of poor environmental conditions, much less the circumstances of their kings had compared to the other kings were even more serious. The kings courted Anika by all means they had in order to obtain a successor.
That’s why Kasser accepted the queen’s contract offer without much resistance. Besides, the marriage between the king and Anika was a contract that weighed the benefits of each other on a very broad scale.
He gazed at the desert and lost his mind.
This activity is strange. He always felt something was starting to go off in a tight fit. But at this moment, he didn’t have an ominous foreboding, which made it even more strange.
All night long he lost his reason and was absorbed in coveting her. His blood curdled. No matter how many times he tried, the arousal he experienced could not be satiated. She was barely conscious, much exhausted with their nighttime passion.
He woke up at dawn and found her deeply asleep. He agonized over whether to wake her up or not. Had it not been for the need to check since the activation started, he would have climbed back atop her body and continued where they left off.
He didn’t expect to be so absorbed in the Queen. He had not touch her in three years. How could he ever hope to survive three more years now?
For at this very moment, he couldn’t keep the thought of her out of his mind. He felt a fierce hunger at the thought tasting her plump lips, and he felt an insatiable thirst to bask in her very presence.
