Chapter 32 (Part 2)
After I had finished my breakfast and asked the butler to make me a cup of tea, Luca and I went for a quick spar as our after-dinner exercise. Because I had chosen the path of a sorcerer, my father had taught me how to use a dagger, which I could use even while wielding a wand in my other hand. However, since Luca had decided to walk the path of a knight, he had a different sword teacher. As such, his fighting style was completely different, and there were many things he could learn from sparring with me.
Our wooden swords clashed and Noel, who had been watching from the gazebo, got up and came over to us.
“Nii-sama, Noel also wants to fight! ”
“…Noel, you’re still young for this.”
“He’s right. It’s still dangerous for you. If you don’t have a good enough grip, the sword will fly from your hands when you swing it.”
When Luca and I stopped her, Noel’s eyes slowly started to tear up. Whenever my sister cried, I always felt at a loss, so I was in trouble.
“Alright, Noel, come here. This is a dagger so you can hold this. I’ll support you when you swing it.”
“Ciel is as indulgent as always towards Noel. Well, it’s cute that Ciel tries so hard to be a big brother.”
“You don’t have to point out such a thing.”
“Fufu, I understand.”
I gave Noel, who had come over, a wooden dagger that she can hold onto with both hands. As I supported her hands from below and lifted them up little by little, we moved towards Lucas together.
I slowly lowered her hands and, with a swift motion, she hit the sword that Luca was holding once. Perhaps that in itself was enough to make her happy, as she looked up with a beaming smile.
“Thank you, Nii-sama! ”
“Hmn. When you grow up a little more, you will be able to hold the sword properly, so don’t be too hasty. I’ll be worried.”
“Ah… I’m sorry, Nii-sama…”
I gently patted the depressed Noel’s head. When I did that, she broke into a beaming smile, despite how her head had been hanging just a moment ago.
But suddenly, her expression became strange. She tilted her head in confusion and looked up.
“Nii-sama. Nii-sama’s hands are getting cold for some reason.”
When I heard that, I felt that my hands were indeed colder than before. And they seemed to be getting colder and colder. As soon as I become conscious of the fact, my body trembled.
Luca immediately grabbed my hand. His brows scrunched up, and he peered into my face and touched my cheek.
“The sun isn’t out, so it’s not because of your attribute. …Did you catch a cold? Ciel, stay in your room for today. Let’s get you into bed. Warm up and get some rest. You there, tell the teacher that I will not attend the class today. Also, arrange for a doctor.”
The butler gave a shallow bow and led Noel, who was on the verge of tears, into the house. I also followed them back, still holding Luca’s hand. Together, we headed straight to my room in the basement.
When we arrived beside the bed, he took off my shoes and my clothes. I was stripped naked and covered with a comforter, and for some reason, Luca slipped into the bed stark naked as well. He got on top of me and our bare skin came into contact.
“Luca? This is a bit…”
“It’s fine, Ciel. If we’re like this, you won’t be cold. Don’t worry, I’ll stay right here by your side. That’s why, don’t worry.”
Strangely enough, even though I thought it will rather be cold if I was naked, I started to feel warm, sensing a gentle heat coming from the place where I was touching Luca! I felt like Luca’s magic power was being transferred to me, little by little.
While pressed closely to my chest and abdomen, he gently patted my shoulders and arms. Even his legs were entwined with mine. He kissed me on my nape, then on my forehead and cheeks, and finally on my lips. He felt soft and gentle.
“Ngh…Ciel. I want to kiss you deeper. Can you stick out your tongue? ”
When I stuck out my tongue as his sweet, slightly hoarse voice urged me to, the tips of our tongues immediately touched. A feeling of pleasure shot off from my spine like a spark of electricity, and my back trembled. Luca’s tongue entered my mouth, and our tongues tangled deeply with each other, smacking and licking. A sense of pleasure burst forth, and my whole body grew hot.
“Fu, mu…nngh, nn…fua…ngh.”
As I grew drunk on the pleasure, our tongues parted and he slowly nibbled on my lip. Then he wiped off the overflowing drool.
I opened my eyes, which had closed at some point, and when I looked up at Luca, I saw that he was not a seven-year-old child. He was the adult Luca of my dreams.
When I stared at him in surprise, he smiled softly and gently.
“What’s wrong? Is there something on my face? ”
“…Eyes, a nose, and a mouth.”
“Pfft, that is true. Zagan, you also have them.”
Zagan. Luca called out my name, just like in the dream. Besides, this was the same conversation that Luca and I had had in the dream.
No, I wondered which one was the dream. Was this, perhaps, a dream? Was I dreaming now?
Even though I was confused, unsure of what was happening, Luca continued kissing me here and there, climbing on top of me and moving his body. Our abdomens and penises rubbed against each other, and I ended up letting out a gasp of pleasure. My body, too, felt warm.
“It feels good, doesn’t it, Zagan?”
When I nodded, Luca laughed in joy and kissed me on my cheek.
Even though we were only rubbing against each other, Luca’s mana was building up in my lower abdomen. It felt comfortable, being soaked in a flood of his light mana. And perhaps because my whole body kept getting warmer, I gradually grew sleepy and my eyelids gradually grew heavier.
“…Luca. Can I, sleep for a bit? ”
“Of course. You can rest at your leisure. Because I’ll hug you like this all the while.”
Entrusting my body to Luca’s embrace, I closed my eyes.
―…Has he still not recovered? How many days have passed?
I was supposed to be asleep, but I heard a voice. It was as if it was coming directly from my own brain…as if it was resounding from my own self. Who on earth could it be?
—If he remains like this, he might die for real. Or will he turn into a vegetable? Give me a break!
I felt like I had heard this voice before somewhere, but where was it?
—Hey, I really think it’s time for you to wake up, buddy. I’ve had enough of his voice calling out to me; it’s annoying. Even I’m doing my best to keep my soul from disappearing. You’re not the only one who’s desperate.
Ahh, I see. This voice is—me.
“…I can hear you.”
“Ah? Ahh, have you finally recovered enough to reply? Huh, did you have a good dream? ”
