“Master. Yes, I mean.”
Edward murmured frantically, rubbing his palms.
“If we raid a place like that, we will be able to capture undeniable evidence. If that’s the case, then even the emperor……”
Edward’s self-talk did not stop. Standing in front of me with a giddy expression, he didn’t seem to care. Or is it something like them, about which they have never shown the slightest bit of interest from the start?
“When is the exact time?”
Edward cast a sideways glance in my direction and asked at one point. I returned a prearranged answer.
“It’s midnight. It’s time for the entire cathedral to be asleep.”
“It’s midnight…… Okay. All right. It’s a good time.”
“Are you going to raid?”
When I asked in a plain tone, Edward glared at me.
“It’s great that you brought a big fish, but you’re climbing a bit. Did you learn how to ask questions? Why are you curious about that?”
“Because I’ll definitely be able to assist you if I know the masters’ plans properly.”
“How are you going to help?”
“The cathedral is subject to round-the-clock surveillance throughout the night. You shouldn’t approach it through the normal route if you want to get there without the traitors noticing because they will be watching for you. I know a secret passage through which you can evade surveillance.”
A sardonic grin appeared on Edward’s face.
“You are pretty loyal. You are also very capable. Since when did you turn into such a serviceable dog?”
“I was trying to be useful.”
I politely bowed my head and replied.
“I know very well that this is an opportunity I will never have again. It’s an important opportunity, so if I do well, I’ll get a worthy reward.”
“The rewards. What do you want?”
“I’ve learned a little bit about your taste for shiny things.”
As I lowered my gaze, Edward laughed as if he were playing.
“Ah. Do you want money and jewels? I’ve heard rumours that Sir Ian is dressing you up in all kinds of expensive jewellery and dresses. Yes, the taste of money is hard to get out of once you see it. That’s a reward; of course we can give it to you.”
Edward giggled as I bowed his head.
“I was also worried that you were dreaming of something like freedom without remorse.”
“That can’t be.”
Speaking in an insensitive voice, Edward nodded satisfactorily.
“As expected, you know your position well. I can fill you up with expensive diamond chains, but….”
Edward bowed his head to me. An insidious voice pierced my ears.
“Anyway, don’t forget that you are our dog.”
“This time, well done. I promise you a big reward if things work out successfully. But.”
Edward raised his right hand.
“Wouldn’t it be embarrassing if you became arrogant just because you received a compliment?”
As he said that, Edward rubbed the tip of his right index finger and the base of his thumb together.
It was an action I had seen before at the engagement ceremony. With that movement, a searing pain spread across the tattooed thigh.
Reflexively, I bent over and groaned as I wrapped my arms around my thighs.
Edward chortled merrily above me.
“Always remember your position and remember it. The fact that you belong to us from head to toe.”
I pretended to be in excruciating pain and writhed around on the floor while rapidly shaking my head.
As expected, Nine does not know that I have lifted the time limit curse. Just as it did in the original story when the heroine lifted her friend’s curse.
“I’ll remember……I understand.”
After a while of struggling, I finally gasped and answered.
When I was giving a convincing performance, I looked up, and I noticed that Edward’s face was aglow with superiority.
Late in the evening.
Returning to the cathedral, I walked straight to my bedroom. When the guards saw me, they opened the door to my room. As I got close to the door and was about to go in, I hesitated for a moment. Inside, there was a person.
“Are you here?”
Ian, who had been seated on the couch and was perusing the papers, turned his attention to me. It seemed that he had left work early for some reason. Seeing as he was still looking at the scraps of paper, it didn’t seem like he was completely out of work.
Taking off my outdoor lace gloves, I sighed lightly.
I could feel Ian’s eyes on me. I said with a smile as I faced him.
“I got caught.”
“Is that so.”
Ian, who had put the papers aside, strode up to me and looked me over with his pensive eyes.
“Where did you get hurt?”
“Nothing. You said it wouldn’t happen.”
First of all, to Nine, I am still a slave with enough product value. They couldn’t have hurt me like that.
I gave Nine very valuable information. As long as the information that Ian was treasonous was enough, it would be an S-class information special.
Nine are not hot-blooded patriots, and they won’t break into Ian’s office to get rid of the traitors.
They will find the person who is willing to pay the most for the most valuable information.
And, of course, who would be most shaken by the information that Ian was plotting treason.
‘It must be the emperor.’
“Nine must be busy bargaining with the emperor by now.”
After hearing the information provided by Nine, is the emperor going on a rampage? Or is Ian unable to believe it?
I thought maybe it was both.
Rashid was more wary and conscious of Ian than anyone else, but he felt a great sense of superiority because his brother’s allegiance was toward him.
‘Nine out of ten likely, he’ll try to witness the scene of the treason with his own eyes.’
A week later, Ian’s office seemed to be filled with numerous guests.
The foreboding of the night before the storm slowly took my breath away.
It was a lie to say I wasn’t nervous.
It was a well-thought-out plan that had been double-checked, but there could be flaws somewhere. I had no choice but to run many simulations for that day in order to get ready for it.
‘In that sense.’
I walked over to the sofa and gestured to Ian.
“I have to practice today too.”
A look of disapproval passed over Ian’s face for a moment.
Do you hate it that much? Practising with me?
His lips were puckering for no reason, but his position was not that I didn’t understand.
This practise, I guess what… It’s not an ordinary practise.
But I couldn’t help it.
‘Because this practise is essential for our plan to succeed perfectly.’
“Please sit down on the sofa.”
Ian sighed low when he spoke in a strict tone, on purpose to hide his embarrassment.
Contrary to the uncooperative atmosphere, he simply sat on the sofa. I hesitated for a moment, then gently sat on his lap.
Our gazes met from too close a distance.
Sitting on a man’s lap was never a familiar act to me either. If I had to say it, he wasn’t an extramarital man, he was my husband, but…… To be honest, that made it even more awkward.
‘I’d rather be with a guy I’ve never seen in my life like this, it would be less awkward!’
If I did, a professional actor would take over my body and finish it quickly.
However, Ian was no longer the first person I ever saw in my life.
He was a person with whom I had many conversations and also a person who gave me feelings in many ways. Although I have mostly negative feelings like fear, rebellion, or being unlucky.
I cleared my throat to get rid of the useless thoughts.
“Give me your hand; I’ll raise it.”
I shuddered and put my arm around Ian’s neck.
Sitting on his lap and even hugging his neck.
It was a manly scene that would blind anyone who saw it.
‘By the way, did a human being even train his neck? Why he have such a strong neck?’
I thought that no matter how well-trained a human being is, the neck, which is the vital point, would be soft, but the muscles felt over Ian’s neck were hard, as if to laugh at my prejudice. As if he was nervous.
“Are you going to sit there like a piece of wood?”
To hide my embarrassment, I deliberately spoke bluntly.
“It looks like I’m the only one clinging to you!”
“Don’t push me.”
A discontented voice was heard below.
Then came a low sigh. And.
“…… Can we do this?”
A strong arm wrapped around my waist.
As if holding a child, the waist was wrapped around Ian’s arm. That’s why I had to get closer to Ian.
“…… Well, well done.”
I wanted to say it resolutely, but I couldn’t because my vocal cords were hardened by tension.
A nice scent emanated from Ian, who clung tightly to him.
It’s hard to believe that he is a full-grown adult man, and it has a refreshing and clear scent.
Ian looked up at me and said.
He was one head taller than me, so I didn’t get used to the composition of me looking down like this.
“How can I do it?”
I gulped and swallowed.
I ran the simulation dozens of times in my head for this exercise.
How can I create a more unconventional and unscrupulous attitude?
There was definitely a posture that I had concluded in my head, but my mouth seldom left.
Whether or not he knew how I felt, Ian just looked up at me.
I barely opened my mouth.
Don’t panic, Lee Seo-yeon. I can’t sit on this lap forever. It’s a quick way to end things.
Ian’s scent seeping through the tip of my nose made my head dizzy. Why the hell does a grown man smell so good? It must have been expensive perfume.
‘Wake up. Lee Seo-yeon.’
My bad habit of thinking too much when I’m upset came back to haunt me.
I hurriedly refocused on the task at hand.
“Next is…. You can put your hand on my cheek.”
Ian, who became an obedient student, asked.
I muttered in a low voice, as if possessed by something.
“Please tilt your head. When kissing, don’t touch my nose.”
