Harmless Obsession for the Captivating Male Lead - Chapter 42
Rosenia could clearly feel the warm and soft tongue sliding over her palm. Frightened, she tried to pull her hand off, but Llewellyn gently grasped her wrist and started kissing her five fingers one after another.
He let her go after he was done with all five. Rosenia gripped her burning hand tightly and stared at him while her body quivered a little.
He looked at her with a grin and said in a delighted voice.
Rosenia wanted to berate him, but she put up with it because there were a lot of eyes around them. Instead, she distanced herself from him and glared at him, warning him not to approach her.
Then Llewellyn muttered, seeming deeply upset.
“It was an expression of affection.”
“It would be nice if you could take note of the time and place a little!”
“Why should I bother? This is my house.”
While the two of them were having a silly argument, Henry was quietly petting Carrotta, blushing with embarrassment.
Carrota wagged its tail crazily at Llewellyn, but eventually lowered its tail in disappointment because it didn’t get his attention.
“Have you been looking around the garden?”
Llewellyn asked as he persistently approached her again. Rosenia answered by nodding her head reluctantly, being wary of him.
“Uncle was showing me around.”
“Uncle …? I see you’ve already decided to call him that way.”
Rosenia nodded her head and glanced at Henry. He silently affirmed, while patting Carrotta in embarrassment. Carotta, completely depressed, looked at Llewellyn with sad eyes.
“Then, from now on, I would like to show you around. Will it be okay with you?”
Llewellyn reached out to her and offered. Rosenia still glanced at him warily, but couldn’t help but hold his hand.
Anyway, they were going to get engaged, so it would be better to cooperate.
“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to accompany you, My Lady.”
Llewellyn said and kissed her lightly on the back of her hand as if he was acting in a play. The moment she met those playful green eyes, she burst into laughter without realizing it.
‘I can’t win with him anyway …’
She took Llewellyn’s hand and walked slowly as he led her by hand.
Passing through the middle of a garden filled with light purple lilacs, they walked along a path leading to a small forest and then came across the eastern sea.
Suddenly when the scenery before came into her sight, Rosenia felt refreshed and let out a loud exclamation.
Llewellyn smiled when he looked at her like that. He gently pulled her hand and slowly led her to the beach.
When they reached there, Rosenia saw there was a blanket under a large parasol and a picnic set on top of it.
“What’s all this? Don’t tell me you prepared all this beforehand, did you?
When she asked in surprise, Llewellyn replied with a grin.
“I thought you’d like it. Do you like it?”
“Of course …”
She couldn’t even finish her answer before she burst into laughter.
‘How did you know that I like this kind of stuff?’
“Come here and have a seat.”
Llewellyn grabbed her hand and said. But the place he told her to sit was none other than on his lap. Rosenia glanced at him in disbelief.
“Do you want us to sit this close in this hot weather?”
“This parasol is not just an ordinary parasol.”
Nevertheless, Llewellyn lifted her and sat her on his lap.
Rosenia lifted her head and looked inside the parasol in bewilderment. As she looked at it, she saw a magic rune engraved on it.
When Rosenia muttered blankly, Llewellyn smiled back. She smiled and shook her head.
She had just thought that it was cool underneath the parasol, but it turned out to be a parasol with a cooling spell.
‘It must have cost a lot of money. …’
Engraving magic runes on objects, that is, to make magic tools, usually costs a lot of money.
Practical magic was still a cheaper option, but to enjoy such a luxury by engraving a cooling spell on a parasol… was too lavish.
‘You didn’t come up with this for me, did you?’
Somehow Rosenia felt nervous and looked up at Llewellyn. And as if he had read her mind, he said,
“It didn’t cost me much money.”
What? Is he telling the truth?
As she opened her mouth, Llewellyn tilted his head as if it were nothing.
“This is nothing for me. As long as Rosenia can relax on the beach, I don’t consider it as a waste of money.”
Rosenia stared at him in a daze and with great difficulty, she opened her mouth and said,
“I know you’re rich, but spending wantonly is not good.”
“Are you already supporting1 me? It has a nice ring to it.”
What on earth was this guy talking about? Rosenia grinned and smacked him on his chest. It sounded pretty good to hear.
“Maybe it’s because he’s strong …”
The moment this thought came to her mind, she shook her head in astonishment because she somehow remembered his naked body. She couldn’t believe she was such a shameless person! It must have been because of Llewellyn’s influence.
“What are you thinking about?”
Llewellyn gently asked and stroked her back from top to bottom.
At that moment, she unconsciously flinched, feeling a shiver run down her spine. Seeing this, he smiled brightly.
… He was clearly enjoying her reaction.
“If you keep doing that, I’ll just walk away.”
“Okay, I understand. I’ll be obedient from now on.”
After being bluntly rebuked, Llewellyn quickly lowered his tail, picked up a glass of cool beverage, and held it out to her.
Rosenia took a sip of it. It was a sweet peachade.
‘I think it’ll be more delicious with a sorbet.’
Rosenia took another sip of the peachade with that thought. Then, she heard Llewellyn laugh a little.
She suddenly looked up at him, wondering why he was laughing. He lowered his head and kissed her on the forehead.
“You’re cute, Rosenia.”
“Your eyes sparkle when you eat something delicious. That’s why you’re so cute.”
As if he wasn’t satisfied with a kiss on her forehead, Llewellyn started kissing her on her cheek and then the nape of her neck.
When she thought of all the maids behind them watching this, she was ashamed to death.
‘But I don’t think this man is even the least bit ashamed.’
Only after kissing her to his heart’s content did Llewellyn let her go.
But it didn’t just end there.
As soon as Rosenia put down her cup after finishing the peachade, he turned her around and made her face him.
And then before she could run away, his lips covered hers in a long warm kiss.
He sought her lips hungrily like a man suffering from immense thirst. She groaned and squirmed under his passionate kiss. Llewellyn pulled her closer, tilting her body at a comfortable angle, and then pushed his tongue deeper.
The feeling of something invading her body still felt unfamiliar. But as the heat gradually rose, she was swept away by a pleasant feeling and soon became accustomed to the unfamiliar feeling.
She felt like she would melt and become one with him completely. She wondered if it was too much to commune deeply like this with just a kiss. At the time, she felt like she was losing herself and was no longer herself anymore.
It was a dizzying and frightening feeling.
When she was almost released, she breathed out loud. Just when she calmed her ragged breathing, she realized that she was lying with her back against the blanket.
Llewellyn’s eyes gleamed with a dangerous light on seeing her gasping under him. His eyes were like that of a beast who was eager to eat its prey.
He asked in a rough voice.
“We can’t do it here, right?”
Rosenia shook her head intensely with a frightened look when she understood the meaning of his question.
“Of course not! Are you crazy?”
“Don’t you already know that I am crazy?”
His tone had become lighter. That meant he was out of his mind again. Rosenia shivered, feeling a foreboding, and quickly suggested.
“N-now, let’s go to the Duke’s room.”
“Yes! I’d rather do that.”
Llewellyn smiled broadly with great joy as if he had received a gift.
Then, without further questioning, he picked her up and strode away from the beach.
The maids glanced at them with red faces and smiled happily. Rosenia was about to die of shame.
* * *
“Uh, uh … Duke, a little slowly …”
Rosenia’s thoughts were all over the place when Llewellyn started to push her as soon as they entered the room.
They had been apart for only a very short time, but he rushed towards her like a very impatient man.
“Haah, Rosenia …”
“I thought I was going crazy because I wanted to keep doing this.”
He whispered silently, looking down at her with his heated eyes.
Rosenia stared at him blankly. She was gasping like a fish that had fallen on the boat. His handsome and upright face had now disappeared and was already tinged with pleasure.
It made her feel strange to think that she was the only one who knew this facet of this man.
She didn’t want others to know…
The thought of wanting to be the only one special to him unconsciously came up in her mind.
“This look of yours …”
Rosenia unconsciously reached out and muttered, while caressing his face.
“I wish I could keep it to myself.”
Soon after, she came back to her senses and quickly withdrew her hands.
‘What am I talking about?’
She avoided his gaze trying to escape from him, but Llewellyn whispered with a peal of low laughter.
“Do you want to monopolize me, Rosenia?”
“So do I.”
Llewellyn said while slowly combing her hair.
“I also want to monopolize you.”
“So, I’ll only be like this in front of you.”
He grabbed her hand and placed it on his left chest. The smooth skin she felt under her palm was very hot. And beyond that, she could also feel the racing beats of his heart.
