Chapter 172 Stand For Yourself

-Lord sorron,it looks like we are close !

Hoboku said lightly shaking me from behind as we continued to ride through the thick forest on her <Abyssal Moon Horse>,the amount of turns,jumps and leaps that were made to navigate through the forest was insane,the terrain itself was definitely not fit for a mount to go through,but because the beasts were all wild beasts and not domesticated and because they were born here and lived here all their lives,every single one of them knew how to navigate properly and find paths to slip through.

Comparably riding was less scarier then flying since we were on the ground,but at the same time,I can’t say that riding is actually more comfortable then flying…

-Is..Is that so ?

I replied,groaning for a second while feeling cold sweat running down my forehead as I couldn’t feel the muscles on my thighs anymore,with the constant jumping and galloping it would make the vibration would constantly pound me from bellow causing my muscles to feel as if they were being teared apart as we continued riding.

It was after all my first time riding a horse,when we were going to depart the selection with whom I was going to take a ride with was between the deer or the horse or habaru and hoboku respectively.

The other beasts didn’t really make me feel safe riding them because they were generally animals that don’t usually are used as a mount at least to my knowledge.In the end I chose hoboku for a ride and when we finally started riding…

I immediately felt the repercussions of my actions.

-Lord sorron ? Is everything okay,you don’t seem to sound well ?

Hoboku asked worried,even though we weren’t directly facing each other she still knew what was going on since we were bound to one another through our bond,she also probably noticed the tight grip I had around her belly while hugging her back the entire time,my fingers were almost pressing onto her skin through her robe but even then she didn’t say anything not sure if it was because she was worried or because she liked the way I was holding her.

Either of the two could most likely be true.

I thought,raising my head for a bit as I looked at hoboku’s back smiling at her kindly,she couldn’t see me smile,but I was still very happy that she was worried about me making me feel warm inside my heart.

On another side note neither hoboku or the other girls seem to share my pain in this area nor show any signs of discomfort when sitting on these beasts and riding them,it is most likely because I have the lowest strength in group not able to take as much punishment as they can.

-Don’t worry,Focus on riding,I am just a bit tired thats all,tell me when we get there alright ?

For a moment hoboku didn’t say anything and because I couldn’t see her face I didn’t know what kind of expression she was making,her feelings were also hidden extremely well other then a little gnashing sound that came from her jaw as she replied,her voice holding a tinge of resolution.

-Yes…

Soon after her short agreement I noticed that our pace had somehow slowed down and the shaking had also been reduced all of which came from the way hoboku was steering the horse,she looked more focused after this exchange somehow learning to properly ride the horse in consideration for me and even though I felt that we should go faster like before,I still couldn’t say anything since hoboku was doing this for my sake after all.

Neither hoboku nor I said anything anymore at this point and while I was sitting behind hoboku hugging her tight I wanted to talk with wylniva through the transmission link about the beastmen and ask what she knew about them.

Unfortunately enough wylniva wasn’t in the mood to talk with me anymore ever since having that bitter conversation with the other 3 girls.

I understood that was somewhat angry about that,but I just couldn’t understand why she was letting it out on me out of all people…

Anyways…It wasn’t like her to hold a grudge for such a lengthy amount of time,but she was acting weird in general so I didn’t think much about it and just thought it would pass after a bit of time,the topic in itself wasn’t that important either since I would most likely hear everything from the source itself meaning the beastmen.

Blondy herself was also on my mind,finding her in the middle of the forest knocked out bleeding wasn’t the best way to reunite much less was the prospect of her suffering from the concussion that I needed to heal as fast as possible.

While thinking about these things I quickly found myself nuzzled up behind hoboku’s back feeling very safe around her while also getting slightly charmed showing a gentle smile on my lips as hoboku looked resolute and focused looking forward with huge strides of her own.

If anyone else would have seen this imagine they wouldn’t be able to tell who the prince or the princess was…

==========================Sarah’s P.O.V=========================

3 Hours ago

-We have to tell janet and quickly go after them,if we don’t act fast who knows what will happen to those two

I told those two quickly coming to a decision as I turned towards the sleeping janet by side,my hand reaching towards her as I wanted to wake her up from her pleasant sleep to quickly go send a rescue party it was the most reasonable and right thing to do.

But just as I was about to do that,I saw another two pairs of hands in the corner of my eyes reaching out to me quickly stopping me from alerting janet as they grabbed my arm holding me in place for a second.

-No wait !

Lily and gary came stopping me from doing what needed to be done as they showed a look of desperation and fear in their eyes,I was honestly surprised and watching their expressions I couldn’t help,but feel a little bit disgusted at them not because they let their own friends walk out like that into this dangerous forest without a second thought,but because they still wanted to hide their mistakes without alerting everyone else so they wouldn’t be punished for it.

Their eyes said it all,they already had lost their believe of them still being alive or rather wanted to let go,but still felt guilt and haunted.

I didn’t know either of them very well generally I didn’t know anyone here since coming here even my own friends who I thought I really knew at first showed sides of themselves that I never even seen before making me question who these people really were that I called my friends.

One thing I realized since coming here in this nightmarish forest is that people aren’t truly themselves when they introduce who they are,there is always darkness looming over everyones hearts hidden like a sleeping snaking at first and if you aren’t careful enough and wake up that snake it will soon show itself lunging at the first person it sees.

Fear,selfishness and desire.

These are things that all drive people and make them capable of doing the most atrocious acts possible just to attain their goals,I never really thought about any of this,but staying here forced me to think such thoughts and make the darkness come oh so closer to my heart as if its scratching the surface of my veins making me anxious of myself fearful of who I really maybe underneath this disguise of skin and flesh.

 

I was scared that goes without saying everyone was,but that still not a excuse to not do anything,because if I don’t do anything the people who I call friends may just disappear just like that…

I thought to myself,suddenly the image of sorron popping up inside my head as I momentarily lost myself  remembering the few conversations we had and how he had helped us so far,even I myself didn’t know why his image popped up like that,but for now that didn’t matter.

-So what are you going to do ? If we aren’t going to tell janet or everyone else what do you think should be done ?

My words hit where it hurt quickly catching the two off guard as they stopped holding me and instead stepped back for a second,their facial expression changing into total panic and fear as they looked at each trying to find an answer in the eyes of the other just to see their own fearful reflection in their eyes that spoke more then a few volumes.

They didn’t completely think this through that was for sure they only reason they woke me up and told me about was because they didn’t know who to talk to and tell their problems to without getting into trouble themselves,but now that they seen each others faces they didn’t know what to do anymore…

Time was ticking and it wasn’t just going to slow down for us the forest continued to roar inhuman and monstrous roar through the nights any moment now and those roars could turn into blood gurgling screams instead.

-This…this…Damn ! what do we do what do we do…

Gary was the first to break down,the sweat on his face pouring down like buckets as he kneel’ed on the ground mumbling to himself,lily on the other hand just as confused as gary didn’t come down to gary’s level and instead observed him for a few seconds in silence.

She was scared,but this wasn’t the first time she was scared,she already experienced fear and pain inside this place,she didn’t want to feel it again and do nothing about it which is why she knew what to do and stared back at me grimly.

-Tell janet we have to quickly go and get them maybe we aren’t too late…

I nodded my head at her words while turning my head I once again reached towards janet about to grab her shoulder to wake her up and tell her everything about this so she could tell us what to do,but as I was just about to grab her my hand stopped moving for a moment as I considered several thoughts inside my head.

When we find them and get them back then what ? What if they are already dead ? What if terry made sophia go out with him ? What if…

The thoughts swirled like a hurricane my face paling at every single thought that occurred and how it would affect our group as a whole after all everyone was on edge,the girls were disconnected largely traumatized showing hate and distrust towards the few boys in our group even janet wasn’t out of this circle she may not have experienced what the other girls had she still had large amounts of stress accumulated in her mind today was also one of the only few days where she would get some sleep in peace.

We are always relying on janet or sorron,but we never even consider thinking about it ourselves,but if I can’t even help myself how am I so stupid to even think that I can help anyone else ? And to be real even if I woke up janet and told her anything…

What would it change ?

I already know…no one is going to leave the base even if janet tells them to,its too dangerous we are too weak and majority of these people can’t even hold a sword less than that fight…

And after doing nothing,how will our group continue ? Will we harder our security with 4 people a night ? Maybe 6 ? Will the boys become even more hated since one of them was involved ? Who will first start complaining and who will succumb to their darkness?

In the end…There was only me…

I withdrew my hand slowly,watching janet closely with a smile on my lips as I let her sleep peacefully.

Afterwards I stood up glancing at both lily and gary who were panicked and scared before ignoring them and walking past them towards the cave exit reaching towards one of the swords arming myself.

-I am going alone and bring and them back tonight you two just stay here and keep guard until I come back

With those words out my mouth I quickly stood exited the cave into the moonlit night,lily and gary were still paralyzed,astonished from what I just said as I continued to walk towards the exit of our camp with no hesitation or second thought.

But just as expected gary quickly popped in front of me stopping me from moving forward,seeing him I was about to tell him to move away and that it wouldn’t change anything even if we told janet what happened,but unexpected what I heard next was something complete different,his face was still full of fear but there was also stiff look in his eyes that said something about him.

-Can I come with you

Chapter 171 Something Weird

Consoling everyone took a bit more time then expected,but after hugging and making up with everyone,we finally decided to start moving on again.

Of course there were a lot of things everyone wanted to say,but because I was a bit worried about blondie’s concussion and the beastmen that were now in the tow,we couldn’t afford to have any more idle time with each other.

There was also the problem with rimulu and the medicine we still needed to acquire for her mother and looking at our current state with myself and wylniva already tired without even getting close to the dungeon…it didn’t look very good after all…

We may need to delay this task some more.

I thought for a second,raising my eyes towards rimulu who was still sitting on top of one of the beasts,the <Obsidian Tusk Bear> our eyes momentarily met,but only for a split second before she looked away from me with a bit of bitters clearly seen in her eyes and quivering lips.

I could only smile wryly seeing her act like that,it wasn’t as if I couldn’t understand her,she probably also understood that we may delay this for another few hours or even a day if we don’t recover fast enough from this incident.

Her frustration was also fairly justified because this wasn’t a case that could be taken lightly it was something that would decide the life and death of someone dear to her,her mother in specifically,time was precious at the moment and before the poison would kill her mother we needed to get into the dungeon as quickly as possible and search for the <Seven Cloud Flower> as fast as we could before the 6 days would pass for the poison to become lethal.

If such delays continue I am not sure if rimulu will continue to be docile and obedient like this anymore she may even decide to go on her own and do this by herself,getting killed in the process because of her injuries that weren’t healed yet in her dragon form..

That I could definitely not let happen at any cost.

I vowed to myself looking away from rimulu at the same time as I didn’t want to upset her anymore nor break my promise.

-Wylniva do you think we can still get to the dungeon today ?

I asked,standing next to wylniva as the other girls were still making quick preparations to saddle in again,they still weren’t experienced with riding their beast mounts even while coming here some of the girls had to try really hard to keep their balance on their mounts without falling off to the ground,the only reason they were able to move so courageously while on beast back was because it was urgent,but now that the tense feeling was gone and I was safe some amount of clumsiness returned that made it troublesome for them,luckily they gained some amount of insight in riding while coming here so I can’t say that this was a fruitless event even if it was forced.

Wylniva hearing my question seemed a bit surprised,not sure how to answer as she spoke to me with her honest opinion crossing her arms while also shuffling her beautiful black hair behind her back.

-My lord,you still think of continuing ?…Hmm seeing that only the two of us are relatively spend and the others are fine I can’t say that we can’t still go there…In either case it will still all depend on the dungeon itself who knows maybe its going to be much harder then anticipated.But rather then that there is something else that is bother me…

Wylniva murmured that last sentence if it wasn’t for me being so close to her I probably wouldn’t have heard it,but hearing her say that,I could immediately guess what she was getting at,after all,with the forced encounter of the beastmen and one of them calling the other princess nonetheless,I can’t help but feel as if there is something much more going on then I initially thought it was,wylniva wasn’t exempt from this either as the conversation we had on the flight showed that she seemed to know something after all when that princess gave her name to us.

I looked at her,keeping my gaze at her sharply as if trying to get the answer out of her that way while watching her getting lost in thought,it didn’t take long for her to notice my gaze and after seeing it she quickly came back to herself smiling at me seductively while licking her red lips with heated eyes.

-What ? Do you want something my lord ? I will give it you whenever you want..you just need to ask~…

She said playfully,quickly getting back to her usual persona as if nothing happened for the past few minutes of our lives that could have been our last,she was someone easy going with eyes always aiming towards her goal and loyal nonetheless,

After experiencing everything with her,I couldn’t say that I didn’t like that part about her she was a bit scheming most likely,but I didn’t feel like keeping my guard with her anymore,after seeing her getting scared so much towards despair.

How should I say it ? It was fun I guess.

I smiled,seeing me smile all of a sudden wylniva felt a bit confused,but that confusion only held for a couple seconds until it was replaced by small amounts of surprise the reason for it being my hand that had suddenly come up her left cheek caressing it gently within my palm as I spoke to her softly with kind glint in my eyes.

-I am glad you are okay

The words themselves just seemed so little if you think about it,but after hearing them wylniva couldn’t help but freeze and stare at me wide eyed without saying a word,this little interaction continued for about a few more seconds until I felt someone from behind pulling me to their chest with a irritated growl that followed.

-What are you two doing ? Did something happen while we were gone ?

Hoboku asked suspiciously,hearing and feeling her plain jealousy through both tongue and soul I couldn’t do anything,but smile wryly and it wasn’t only just her hobusaku and hobura were also here crossing their arms in a strict way while glaring at both me and wylniva as if we were doing something taboo even though it really wasn’t anything dirty,still me getting all friendly with wylniva like this must have made them a bit too worked up then normally which was sort of my fault to be fair.

Wylniva quickly came back to herself upon seeing the trio behind me,she obviously knew what those eyes meant that were directed towards her and could feel those emotions that welled in the air easily as she narrowed her eyes a bit watching the 3 behind me,her usual response to this would be a rude or teasing response depending on the reception she got,but for this one instant I felt that she had a somewhat change of heart when she spoke.

-Hmph…What ? Your pets don’t like me talking to you anymore ? I think their paranoia had gotten into a whole new level after getting separated for a few minutes can’t you have your own opinion now ? Its a bit shameful don’t you think ?

She said,her expression showing more then a bit of disgust and anger as she left without hearing a second word,her sudden outburst left me momentarily surprised as I didn’t expect her to say something like that even her emotions were a bit jumbled switching between anger,loneliness and lust,luckily neither hoboku,hobusaku nor hobura could understand wylniva’s foreign speech which made it so much more troublesome as three girls obviously caught onto the hostile tone of hers and looked at me as if waiting for me to tell them what she just said to them.

I sighed turning around as I stared at the 3 beauties behind me.

-Girls,I understand you being worried,but can you please be not so hard on wylniva,I know that I was a bit too close to her for comfort,but that was only because I thanked her,without her I don’t think we would be standing here talking like this…

I said,trying to lessen this hostile relationship some bit as I faced the girls explaining them what was going on and lecturing them at the same time,their response to my explanation was a bit mixed with faint unyielding grunts and lowered heads,but they quickly understood and told me they would try even if they were a bit unwilling.

Hoboku was the still a bit unconvinced about something even though she knew that I wasn’t doing anything devious or trying to break my promise she still continued to stare at wylniva from afar while thinking about something intensely,I couldn’t figure out what she was really thinking and because she wasn’t answering me when I questioned her I had no choice,but get close to her and squeeze her butt.

-Uhh ?

Her response to this lewd action was pretty immediate as she suddenly looked at me with a hot glint in her eyes having finally pulled her attention towards me again I laughed for a second still groping and massaging her plumb butt to make her feel good..

-What is it ? Is there still something you want to say ?

I asked,it took hoboku more then a few minutes to properly answer as she seemed to be really lost in the joy of her having her butt squeezed by me,hobusaku and hobura who were watching by the side could only watch enviously as they also seemed to yearn for this treatment themselves waiting patiently as if hoping they would get something too.

-Hnn…My lord…don’t you think..that..that she changed somewhat ? Just now the…way she looked at you made me feel a bit concerned thats all…

She said,trying her best to keep her moans to herself while also enjoying the grip of my hands kneading her butt into shape.

Her little concern didn’t actually sound very weird to me as I also had that very same though a moment ago when listening to wylinva and watching her look at me,maybe she got a bit uncomfortable after being completely exposed to me emotionally or maybe she is tired and isn’t acting like herself,in either case I still wouldn’t say that any of these reasons would warrant hoboku watching her so strange just until now I was sure that these two in particular had a pretty understanding with each other,but now…it just seemed weird.

In the end,I didn’t try to pursue this matter anymore and just let it go,hoboku also didn’t think about this anymore after the massage and instead constantly tried to kidnap me into one of the bushes or grope me while I wasn’t looking and because hobura and hobusaku were waiting patiently the whole time I couldn’t help,but feel bad for them which is why I gave them a small service to make them motivated again.

And while all this was happening,I didn’t notice wylniva’s far away gaze watching me intently.

Chapter 91 Not Again

-YOU! LADY! DON’T EVEN THINK OF MOVING A MUSCLE OR I’LL BLOW YOUR BRAINS ONTO THE WALL, YOU UNDERSTAND?!

The robber threatened as he pointed his assault rifle towards the bank lady. I could sense that she was trying to press something under the table until the robber stopped her with his gun. Raising her hands, her face was pale and she was scared out of her wits like all the other bank receptionists.

-Che…

Hestia clicked her tongue. Seeing the robbers, she moved her hand slightly to the left about to unleash hell on these guys. But I stopped her mid execution which made her confused as she looked at me with her orange colored eyes. She still wore the white mask which I was about to tell her to take it off when we were inside, just to be interrupted by these guys.

-Don’t, let me handle this. Your way of doing things are way too suspicious. There are a lot of spectators here.

Hestia twitched for a moment hearing my whisper. She grumbled some inaudible words a bit put off, but she knew very well that I was right. She withdrew her hand while watching the robbers with a hidden scorn on her face… she was annoyed, that’s for sure.

I looked back towards the robbers for a moment, analyzing them a bit more to see what we were dealing with. What I got was: The total amount of these guys was 10, and from the body features I could deduce that they were 6 guys and 4 women. Two of them were guarding the entrance; another 4 were guarding the main hall with the normal folks inside while the other 4 were stationed in different positions; such as the back door and other blind spots.

They were all holding assault rifles. Two of them were holstering handguns while the others didn’t seem to have any obvious extra weapons. Their faces were hidden behind black masks and if I remembered correctly, they were also called ski masks. While I was thinking like this, one of the robbers suddenly started approaching the normal folks, a woman from what I could tell.

-Ladies and gentlemen… we all appreciate that you have come today but let’s be honest here. You stay quiet and I won’t have to pull this trigger to “make” you stay quiet. As long as we have this mutual understanding with each other, then I assure you we won’t have any problems. Another thing to add, don’t play the hero. That move only works in fictional movies so I’d like you all to stay in reality if possible. It’s healthier that way and you get to live longer, so what do you say?

Her words were calm and assuring. The people around us, the clients so to speak, were already in turmoil on what to do. And with the added threat for their lives, they couldn’t do anything since they feared for their lives and wanted this to be over as fast as possible. Everyone became quiet and extremely nervous.

Finished speaking, the female robber was about to leave her position. She took one last glance towards the crowd to be sure that everyone understood, but then her eyes suddenly met with my golden ones. She kept on glancing at me for a few more seconds, her eyes were a dark brown color and I could see a very sly glint in them. She started approaching us, me in particular as she started moving in a haughty demeanor…

-Hey you…

She said, obviously talking to me. But I acted as if it wasn’t the case… I had a really bad premonition about this so I tried to ignore her, which usually never works.

-Hey, I am talking to you handsome. Turn your head to me and let me see a bit more…

The people around us were a bit confused, some gaping and some making an awkward smile at this show. But one person in particular was furious, and that was of course Hestia. She stood behind me wearing the white mask but you could feel the heat she was creating around her, making some of the people sweat profusely. Hestia didn’t like the way this woman had approached me and probably felt threatened by that. She openly stared at the woman with hate who in turn didn’t even notice her because she was too preoccupied with looking at me with her dazed brown eyes…

-Franky, what are you doing?! We are robbing a bank for crying out loud!

One of the guys that were standing guard quickly came over warning the woman who he called “Franky.” He had been listening to this from the very beginning and took the chance now to stop what was going on thankfully… or not.

The woman looked pretty annoyed getting reminded of that. She rolled her eyes and looked at the guy telling him with an annoyed tone:

-Bug off Jason. It’s not like anything urgent will occur, it will take 20 minutes or so for the others to prepare the drill to open the safe. We have hostages so the police won’t be coming in any time soon. Having 3 people on guard doesn’t make any difference either so if anything goes wrong, I want to have at least some amount of fun until that happens.

Hearing this, the male robber “Jason” was perplexed on what to say next. He was more than anything, shy or anxious so to say and quickly lost the ability to speak since he didn’t have a counter argument.

-Jason, let it be. She’s right; it doesn’t make any difference since we are going through this anyway. The police will arrive in about 10 or 15 minutes, 20 even if they still haven’t figured out what’s going on.

Another woman who was sitting on a chair told him that. She also took a few glances towards me which lasted a few seconds. But overall, she seemed more focused on the heist than me, which I was glad about.

-Nice… thanks Alice. Now you, handsome, move. Let’s go to a more secluded area…

The brown-eyed woman said while pointing her assault rifle at me telling me to move. Her lips were shaping onto a form of a smile through her mask… They had all really lost it haven’t they? Well, you need some kind of guts to be able to pull this off so I can’t really argue with that. She’s actually doing something like this in the middle of a heist which was pretty ridiculous. And by the way, Hestia who was standing behind me was already reaching her limits while clenching her fists. Her intent was also turning very deadly as she really wanted to just burn the woman into ashes.

I wanted to sigh but stopped myself. Instead, I used my telepathy to tell Hestia that she has to stay low. I had an adequately well thought out plan, and that plan involved her getting what she wanted which calmed her significantly.

Turning back towards the brown-eyed woman, I watched as she pointed the muzzle of the gun towards me. Her eyes showing her lewdness for what she was expecting to get… not.

With a single will of my thought, I activated my ability and stopped the flow of time. Altogether, sound and vibration stopped on the spot as I felt no movement around me, everything going blank. This kind of sensation was almost suffocating sometimes because it made you think that you were blind, but not really since you could see yet not feel.

This kind of thought always burst out of my mind every time I use this ability. It didn’t scare me or make me perplexed, but it did remind me of things that I’ve never thought of before. It’s sort of like a wakeup call… anyway, back to the present. Standing here all day thinking is not productive at all.

Thinking like this, I focused on the robbers on how to deal with this. I could simply knock them all out if I wanted to, but that would look way out of place. So instead, I thought of something else which was a bit comical in my mind… Let’s make them into idiots shall we?

With that thought, I started moving around the place finding each robber and tinkering with them for a bit. The time this took was about 20 minutes probably, if time was actually moving, and it was a fun thing to do thinking about the result in general.

Finishing up, I returned towards my original position with my hands raised. I stared at the gun muzzle with a stupid grin on my face as I starting time once again.

-Hey, do you have cotton in your ears? I told you to move!

The woman demanded. Seeing me not move an inch from my position made her a bit agitated. Instead, I used my telepathy giving Hestia my orders.

-It’s your turn. Remember; don’t get too carried away…

-Who do you think I am?

Hestia returned with a sly tone as she stepped forward beside me. She grabbed onto the muzzle of the gun and quickly shoved it forward into the woman, hitting her with the butt of the rifle. The heavy blow was quick and strong, making her drop on her knees while holding her chest in pain. The other robbers all saw the spectacle and became alarmed by it as they reflexively pointed their guns at Hestia while shouting:

-Franky! Are you alright?! Hey you, what are you doing? Didn’t you understand that playing hero isn’t going to help? Drop the weapon lady… and why are you even wearing a mask?!

The robber was slightly side tracked because of Hestia’s bizarre appearance. But that didn’t stop her; she didn’t even listen as she continued with her rampage. With that said, Hestia quickly kicked the pained woman on the ground in the face, knocking her out completely. She didn’t stop and threw the assault rifle towards the robber who was still dazed by the scene in front of him. Getting caught by surprise, the assault rifle hit him in the face making him crumble to the ground due to the impact and excessive pain. Any normal person would have probably used the gun to fire projectiles instead of using it as a throwing weapon…

-Damn it you bitch! Who do you think you are?!

The woman who was sitting on the chair roared as she stood up and pointed her gun towards Hestia. So was the fourth guy and like this, both of them pulled the trigger to open fire. But the thing was they didn’t have any bullets since I had taken them out already. I almost wanted to laugh out loud…

(Click)

The sound of clicking could be heard as the empty rifles showed their true worth in this kind of situation. It took a few seconds for both of them to realize that their guns were empty, which Hestia effectively used to lessen the distance on them. Arriving at the woman first and doing a roundhouse kick, it launched her a couple meters away with an instant knockout.

-Fuck…

The male robber exclaimed. He already knew that he didn’t have any bullets yet he didn’t bother to check his pockets for more since it would take too much time to reload. Instead, what he did was raise his rifle and use it as a blunt weapon as he charged towards Hestia with it. Dumb move.

Hestia’s movements were swift and fluid. She held back a lot in this fight because I told her to, so she wouldn’t accidentally kill someone. Even without her flames, she could give you a very mean punch as her supernatural strength wasn’t just for show.

Back to the present, the male robber was already close enough in range to swing the rifle in his hand. But before he was even able to do that, Hestia already closed in on him with normal speeds. It was just enough to surprise him, catching him off guard as she gave him a left hook to the chin, which caused blood to splutter from his mouth. For a moment, I felt that Hestia had gone too far but then I realized that it wasn’t actually a strong punch; it was just that the robber had bitten his own tongue because of the hook…

-What are you standing there for? Move already!

Hestia roared. She finished up pretty quickly telling the people to get out of the bank. The other 6 robbers were actually busy with the bank safe making it unknown when they were going to come back and check, making this the best moment to escape.

-She’s right, let’s go!

-Run for it!

The people around me quickly snapped out of their shocked state. They were amazed by Hestia’s incredible show of strength and fighting ability, but cared little about it as they ran for their lives. I could also hear sirens far away; the police were on the way ending this act once and for all. It was fun as long as it lasted but there was still one problem I had…

-I didn’t get my cash.

I sighed. Since this happened, I’m expecting the bank to stay closed for at least 2 days or so, giving me no other choice but to leave for now. With that done, both me and Hestia quickly ran towards the exit with a light jog. Hestia seemed proud of herself, humming a cheerful tone and being the last ones to leave the bank. I could now hear the sound of sirens becoming much louder than before. I could also see blue and red lights flashing outside, indicating that the police already made their way here which was quick actually.

Stepping outside, I was a bit irritated by the bright lights and a bit astound by the amount of police cars. Waving my hand, I wanted to say that everything was alright but when the policemen saw us step outside, every single one of them pointed their guns towards Hestia for some reason…

-Drop your weapon missy and raise your hands. Release the hostage immediately. If you do so, we can still talk about this.

Oh no, not again…

Chapter 170 Distance Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

-DON’T DO THAT EVER AGAIN !

Hoboku shouted at me,her voice extremely pissed off and stern as she glared at me with such anger like never before,her voice was like thunder while her eyes glowed an incredibly deep shade of red comparable to that of the basilisk that glared at me a few moments ago,her aura was oppressive truly terrifying making my hair stand up on its own to no end while shivers crawled up my spine making the shade of my skin even paler then it was before as I stood before hoboku not sure what to say or even if I should say anything to begin with to make her feel better.

But what was even worse about this situation wasn’t the shouting nor the furious glare she was giving me instead what really made me shake were those small droplets coming down hoboku’s cheeks as she glared at me.

-…

She was crying.

It had been over half an hour since we reunited,wylniva and myself didn’t fly away initially because both of us already wasted too much energy to do so,calming wylniva I decided that we would wait for the other girls to come and pick us up instead and because I was still suffering from the mana burn and had a strong mild headache,I couldn’t quite contact hoboku or the other girls which is why we didn’t move from our spots and just let them track us through the bond.

When the girls finally did catch up to us they arrived in a cavalry style charge from afar,I could still remember their fierce faces riding on their respective beast mounts as they made their way through the forest following the path that was initially created by the basilisk with its huge body,it was really surprising at first to see everyone being able to ride their mounts without an issue,but as it was the way they did it was most probably out of necessity and deep worry adapting quickly to reach their goal as fast as possible.

The reason for that being that since we were all connected to each other through our bonds they all felt my terrified feelings and my painful experience with the mana burn that I suffered from that happened during the incident with the basilisk.

Seeing the path that was created by the basilisk and sensing the flow of the bond between us the girls all started to think of the worst scenario possible and made haste.

And in a way this was mostly my fault if I had to be honest,since I insisted on going alone even though the girls were strictly against it,they only really let me go when I said that I would be alright and careful,but that immediately went down the drain if you think about my previous idiocity involving myself voluntarily jumping into the danger to protect blondy.

In the end trying to hide something from them was just too impossible,the bond literally made it impossible to do so and upon meeting face to face with the girls again hoboku was the first to get down her horse as she ran at me with a teary look in her eyes she didn’t look as angry as she was at the beginning.

No…she more like looked stressed,worried sick and terrified and when she finally saw me in one piece alive and kicking with a dumb smile on my face greeting her.

She was immediately joyful again upon seeing me which only lasted for another few seconds until wylniva put down the tree and we stood face to face again.

I saw the entire change in her expressions and I knew very well without a single doubt how she felt when she saw me sound and safe again without any scratch or blood,after all it was the same way I felt after finding out that hoboku wasn’t in danger anymore and that she stupidly went against my words almost getting killed in the process from a huge beast that she underestimated.

And it wasn’t only her,glancing behind hoboku,I could see the glowing eyes of the other girls glaring at me furiously,the only reason they weren’t coming over and shouting at me like hoboku was because hoboku already said the words that was on everyones mind at this moment if everyone really went ahead and said what they wanted it would take far too long and we would be stuck here until late night.

The amount of feelings that were streaming through the bond at the same time was just too much that it made me petrified and turn into a very small animal in front of these giant wolves that could devour me at any time if they so pleased.

-Lord sorron…

-Y..yes…

I said a bit nervously as I straightened myself in fear and nervousness,thinking about this conversation,I couldn’t help,but remember that conversation I had with hoboku when I gave her a punishment for being foolish,but now looking at this our roles had practically been reversed and it didn’t feel very good standing on this side after all…

((Chapter 79 Punishment)) if you don’t remember)

I thought to myself,still looking down to the ground with a bit of anxiety of what might happen next,a bit ashamed to be standing like this and turning into a fool instead.

Wylniva who was standing behind me didn’t seem like she was going to help not that she could help in the first place as half of the girls had already come down their mounts and surrounded wylniva to keep her from helping me staring at her in a very scornful manner too as if she was the cause of all of this.

She did look a bit regretful seeing me like this,but only shook her head with a sigh that said it couldn’t be helped as if understanding what was going on which may not be far from the truth if you think about.

Rimulu was also here,she didn’t come down the beast,but rather observed from a distance on top of it,she was a bit too young to understand what was going on here,but even though she was young she could somewhat understand what was going and stared at me intently.

What happened next isn’t very hard to imagine,hoboku throughly started to interrogate me about the happenings and what those painful feelings were that I had,I couldn’t hide anything from her even if I wanted to,I knew that through the bond that we had that lying was almost always impossible to do,but continuously explaining to her why I did those things that I did to end up in this situation while under her intense stare was really hard to do nonetheless hoboku didn’t shout at me anymore or make me nervous,but she still made me flabbergast when I heard the last question.

-Lord sorron…do you love that woman ? Did you protect her because you like her ?

She said,her voice significantly calmed to the point of being scary as she started to walk up to me very so slowly,the question itself made me momentarily freeze into a daze the girls who were originally just guarding the spot letting hoboku do the rest quickly turned over hearing the question showing a heated look in their eyes also seemingly wanting to know this single piece of information no matter what.

-…

Me loving blondy ?

I thought for a moment,entirely engrossed in my thoughts as I couldn’t see why would hoboku ask me such question,for sure it did look like I liked her,but other liking her I can’t say that I actually love her like the other girls other then being a good soul,I can’t say I feel attracted to her even if she saved me,the only reason I even jumped for her rescue was because I looked at her as someone important like a friend…this is just…

-Lord sorron…please…look at me

Hoboku suddenly said making me immediately snap out of my thought as I realized that hoboku had suddenly come closer so close that our bodies touched each other her arms were hugging me tight and my head was still looking down stuck between her incredibly soft and voluptuous breasts making me feel safe and at peace,but that peace didn’t last for a even more then a split second until I raised my head again looking at hoboku just as she told me to do.

-Ehh…

Looking at hoboku,I was shocked for a second an unfathomable feeling started to rise in my chest the previous turmoil that was between our bond quickly dissipated into nothingness as I continued to stare at this beautiful face that had joyful tears in her eyes at the same time showing a strong illuminating smile that could even outshine the sun itself…

-Lord sorron,I am glad you are safe…I…I..I wouldn’t have know what I would have done if you had been gone…I…I..

-Don’t say anything anymore..

I spoke solemnly,taking the crying hoboku into my arms as she lightly started sobbing into my shoulders and it wasn’t only her who was getting teary eyed the other girls who originally stern and furiously had already gone soft and mild as they all looked at me with small tears coming down their cheeks,I couldn’t even keep track of my own feelings more then less the feelings of everybody else..

And like this everyone started to break down with the first two being hobura and hobusaku as they quickly ran and charged into the two us hugging me and not letting go acting as if they hadn’t seen me for a decade or even longer then that sobbing unrestrained,after these two another 2 and then 4 followed until everyone came in one big haul hugging each other with tears.

Through all of this,I couldn’t even muster a single sentence or word to make it alright,the only thing I could think about were the countless times that something close to this happened,everyone just relied heavily on each other if something would happen to anyone no one knew what to do as much as I needed the girls the girls needed me much more,they didn’t want me to leave they always wanted to stay near me and for good reason too since everyone knew that I could die by just single tap to the head everyone was scared of me dying after all.

It was hard for them to let me go when I asked them to let me fly ahead without their protection or keen eyes hoboku and the rest probably thought that always staying next to me would make me annoyed which is why the reluctantly let me go not because wylniva and red hawk were by my side to look after me,but because they just simply didn’t want to be hated or despised which never could happen no matter what they did..

I would always love them.

-Hoboku…girls…please don’t cry…I only love you and no one else that woman could never replace any of you nor could anyone else take your place how about from today on you won’t leave my side ? I am okay with that if that makes you happy…

My words were sincere and honest,I didn’t want for something like this to repeat itself and people to get hurt and even though the girls seemed happy by my words some of them still looked unsure as if what I was saying was impossible even hoboku looked at me this way raised her head to me with a wryly smile of her own.

-No,my lord,I only wanted to know one thing and now that I know I feel better,but even though I feel better I don’t want you to just tie yourself to us as if we are some kind of nuisance that can’t be dealt with otherwise some of us may be happy with that,but I am not because I do not want to be a nuisance I want to be of use to you in any way possible…

Her words truly touched my heart,it was as if time had once again stopped and the heat that was pumping through my veins just couldn’t stop from doing what was about to happen next,the grip in my hands quickly started to tense up some more as I felt myself going through extacy in a single second while looking at hoboku with heat clear in my blue eyes.

-Then if you really want that can you kiss me now ?

I asked,hearing my question hoboku seemed extremely happy not saying a word as she pressed her lips into my own letting her tongue run wild inside my mouth and her hands grope me from every place possible to feel and make out her dirty desires for my body.

We went a little bit overboard I gotta admit even the rest of the girls couldn’t hold it anymore and went in extreme heat trying to get a piece of me all at once pulling me from everywhere trying to get a kiss or even more.

Over all this little argument quickly got finished through a share of love what would happen in the future and if we would come to this topic again wasn’t very clear at this point,but that didn’t matter as my faith and loyalties never wavered.

Chapter 169 Job Well Done

Need to get onto the groove summer break is right around the corner !

============================================================

The <Dragon Roar> I used was the biggest and loudest yet to come out of my throat,the shock wave even shook inside my neck for a few moments making me feel as if I was being strangled,but because my throat had had changed to encompass the strength of the roar it wasn’t too bad,but still hurt like hell.

My eyes were directly facing the front the entire time meeting the basilisk head on,but what was a clear vision of this giant serpent turned into a curtain of pure dust instead,combined with the overwhelming charge of the basilisk and my <Dragon Roar>the earth beneath us literally broke and flew into the sky creating a little shroom of dust making it unclear where the basilisk was standing ad because there was no sound of anything moving,it made it that much more harder to see clearly.

My hands were firmly gripped onto the surface of the big egg the entire time my finger tips covered with frost so close to be released at any second to shatter the egg into oblivion.

My forehead sweating intensely at the same time with no clue what was about to happen or if my plan worked even Wylniva who was usually extremely calm at all situations showed intense amount of fear shaking tremendously while hugging me tightly from behind with those voluptuous balls of hers pressing onto my back tightly as if trying to squeeze me to death and even though it felt like heaven falling down on me,I didn’t have time to enjoy any of it and just simply kept my eyes wide open refusing to close them even when dust clearly swept into these sockets making me burn with no end.

I couldn’t afford to be careless not now when it counted the most.

I thought to myself and just as I was thinking like this I felt brief wisp of air lightly brushing down my cheek,that simple air was also followed by the smell of strong blood and smelling it I could immediately tell that it was so close that I could even touch it,if I just stretched my hand out.

Not that I was about to do so,since I didn’t want to lose my hand after all.

I smiled,not sure if I should be feeling blessed,lucky or terrified at this moment,but that wasn’t my concern really my main concern didn’t even start yet.

-Who knew ? Snakes aren’t as cold blooded as I thought them to be…

I said not trying to excessively mock while keep my face straight as I raised my head for a second and into the dusty curtain of dirt,the words that came out off my mouth were sharp hisses and slithers at first those words seemed as if they weren’t talking to nobdoy in particular,but soon enough another pair of slithers accompanied my own making the pathetic sounds that I called hisses go to deep shame in comparison to this native speaker.

-You speak my tongue…very surprising indeed little lord much more surprising even after listening to your amusing attempt to whelp like a dragon,fufufufu

The voice was like a sharp knife,for a moment I felt as I was about to get cut and teared apart by it,but I quickly regressed keeping myself tense as I held the egg further into my palm listening to the belittling tone of this snake,my head never changing as the dust curtain finally started to settle down some more,revealing the strikingly blood red eyes of the basilisk in front of me,its statue easily towering over the large tree we stood in as those dark green scales of hers covered her entire body like armor slightly muddied by the dust that came down.

I kept on smiling,not because I saw anything funny rather because I was terrified out of my mind and couldn’t figure out what kind of expression to make,the way she played it out was questionable and while my head was clear as the surface of a clean pond the pouring feeling of my cold sweat spoke otherwise.

-You know first of all,I ain’t a little lord,but a <High Lord> second of all we both know why you stopped so suddenly,it is for sure not because you were surprised by my linguistic talent,but rather because of the egg that I am holding ain’t it ?

I said mockingly,almost too provocative,but it couldn’t be helped since the basilisk wasn’t going yield just so easily with the current circumstances at hand,even she didn’t look like it,the basilisk from what I could tell was easily smarter then any magic beast I had seen so far,its initial rage must have looked savage and mindless,but snakes are by nature cunning and deceitful they wouldn’t so easily succumb towards something like rage to muddle their senses and decision making a predator keeps its head cool at all times the only reason she even put out such image was to lower morale and strike fear into its preys heart,but when truly everything she did was calculated and precise to strike like the malicious snake she was.

The basilisk,didn’t react to my words all too much there wasn’t a shred of change in her expression either since she was a snake,but her not react or moving was also sign that indicated that she knew throughly what I was inquiring at with her ever lasting presence putting more pressure as time went on.

I couldn’t get overwhelmed no matter what,I won’t be able to keep up with her if that would happen,this wasn’t a fight of strength nor smarts…

It was a fight of who dared to do what and what kind of consequences would follow for the loosing party strength didn’t matter in this kind of fight what mattered was how much either side would be willing to sacrifice in order to win which the golden princess obviously lacked which is why she gave up the egg in the first place.

And for sure.

I knew what I was doing and I also knew that this was one of the most craziest ideas that I could have possibly come up with trying to bargain with a basilisk,but at the current situation I couldn’t find any other way,but this to solve the problem.

Throwing the egg wasn’t the right choice because it wouldn’t assure the basilisk from going away or stop chasing us,it could as well just carry the egg and continue chasing us until we tire out even if we were capable of shaking it off since we didn’t have the tracker on us anymore it was still not the smart thing to do since we would go under the risk of tiring before the basilisk would be shaken off.

No rather then throwing away the only leverage we had towards the basilisk it was better to use it like this as a hostage.

Of course things could have gone south very quickly if it turned out that the basilisk mother didn’t even care about her own child,but looking at her now it was very different.

Her blood red eyes were always connected to my own,but that was only what it seemed deep down I could clearly see that it wasn’t me that she was looking at,but the egg the entire time,more specifically the heavy frost that covered the tips of my fingers gripping the egg.

Deep down in those blood red eyes,I saw a small light of a caring mother looking at her child fearfully she did well masking it with her murderous intent and rage,but I was still able to figure out her true feelings even if it was a bit too late.

(Tsssss!)

Suddenly the tips of my fingers started to steam the eroding cold of the steam was very sharp to the ears and upon seeing the cold steam the basilisk quickly grew anxious much more so after seeing my fingers glazing over the top of the egg of hers slowly inching closer.

-STOOOOOP !?

I stopped.Immediately upon hearing her vicious cry the eroding steam on my fingers ceased to exist the basilisk was furious the look in her eyes the anger and rage that was accumulated must have tripled…no quadrupled by quantity as she stared at me deathly ready to bite me to death and drink my blood,her previous rage and anger couldn’t trump her current state which was that of absolute horror this wasn’t the wrath of a angry beast.

It was the wrath of a angry mother and what was worse,she also knew that she couldn’t do anything,the fight was over the moment she cried telling me to stop and we both knew that.

For a moment both me and the basilisk stood like two statues staring at each other appraisingly even though it was clear that I had the upper hand neither of us lowered our guard,looking at the basilisk I could tell that she was considering her own options,but in the end after a small consideration he red eyes quickly dimmed down as she came down to my head level in a more considered way.

-What do you want little lord ?!

The basilisk hissed rapidly coming to the point as she seemed have also realized that she had no other choice,but to follow my demands,after all I had her child and in all honesty I wasn’t proud of threatening a woman with her child even if she is a giant serpent,but I also wanted to live and keep everyone else safe a giant vengeful serpent wasn’t going to make this wish come true by a long shot if we still wanted to live in this forest.

-I am glad that we came to an common ground…

I smiled,speaking mildly as the most hardest point seemed to have been overcome with it a heavy burdened released from my shoulders into thin air a pleasant sigh escaping my lips too.

===========================================================

-Wylniva ? Wylniva hey snap out !

-Ehh..Lord sorron ?

Wylniva spoke a bit confused as she looked at me with a wondering look in her eyes,my hands firmly gripped onto her shoulders shaking her,she had been this way since we landed on the tree,her grip was really hard to escape from in the beginning.

But after a few little shakes I quickly was able to get away and bring her back again from her fearful state,she may not have been hit by the terrifying eyes of the basilisk,but the fear she felt from the basilisk wasn’t less then the actually effect of those harmful eyes either.

Upon getting back to herself wylniva immediately remember what happened and quickly started to look around again nervously,obviously looking for the giant basilisk that was chasing us.

But upon studying her surroundings she quickly came to the realization that the basilisk was gone without a trace and with it was the egg that we had vanished into thin air,for a moment wylniva couldn’t believe what was happening the face she made looked completely off hand and was the most surprised I had ever seen her so far.

-The basilisk is gone,it won’t come back again don’t worry

I quickly explained,smiling reassuringly as I patted wylniva’s head for a moment trying to calm her down,it was a bit unusual to do this to wylniva since she would always act,high and mighty,but because I was used to doing this with the other girls to calm them down or spoil them,I couldn’t help but do it out of reflex and I felt like wylniva needed it too at this moment so she wouldn’t get completely overwhelmed with what was going on.

-Lord sorron…

Wylniva lightly said,surprised and with a bit of emotion too,she obviously had many questions regarding this incident,but after getting patting like this out of nowhere,she seemed to have momentarily forgotten to really ask questions and instead lost herself to my touch calming down quiet a lot as her feelings started to settle down again not completely,but it was a start.

Wylniva’s emotions were pretty much a mess at this point,seeing her distressed wasn’t very pleasant which is why I wanted to calm her,but still unexpectedly cute nonetheless even with her demonic hideous change that gave her black eyes and rougher darker skin which I didn’t mind all too much,the transformation itself also quickly reverted itself as I continued to pat her until finally she turned back into her seductive and beautiful self that she was and my eyes were familiar with.

-Hmmm….

Feeling my warm hand rubbing the top of her head wylniva slowly started to purr in a very enjoyable fashion it was the first time she did that since I don’t touch her don’t often anyways,even her heart that was once beating furiously now cooled down magnificently as if feeding off the warmth I was giving to her,her feelings also quickly transformed as love and happiness sprang forth between our bond giving me a fluffy feeling inside.

After another few seconds wylniva didn’t seem to be able to control herself anymore the heat in her eyes getting all too much to handle for her as she tightly embraced me all of a sudden and shivering for a bit while doing so,nuzzling her head into my neck for comfort and even though I couldn’t see it I heard and felt droplets of tears coming down her eyes and onto my neck wetting my collar that was drenched with my cold sweat.

Her hug was surprising,but I didn’t reject it and also gave it back strongly with care and the utmost gentleness I could muster as if I was holding one of the girls myself while also lightly scolding myself for letting something like this happen.

-Uhh…I think I expected too much from her…

I thought to myself feeling bad for getting her into such a risky situation,but also glad that she was with me here after all even if she wasn’t a big help.

Chapter 90 Raise Your Hands

-I’ve really done it now, haven’t I…?

I muttered feeling slightly bad about myself while sitting in the bath tub, surrounded by warm water and cleaning myself… The bathroom in this establishment was really superb, with all kinds of shampoos and other cleaning devices. It even had instructions on what half of these things did which was convenient so to say.

Currently, i was inside the bathroom getting myself cleaned. Both Hestia and i were still inside the love hotel and since i only ordered 2 hours, our time was about to expire. And we figured that having a quick bath would be necessary before we left. I didn’t want to explain why both Hestia and I had a strong weird smell on us, that would be embarrassing as hell.

And on that topic, i wasn’t sure how to act further now. i already knew that i wanted to do it with Hestia and that there wasn’t really anything wrong with it. But Hestia doesn’t seem to be even bothered by it so why was i getting nervous all of a sudden?

Do i feel like it was wrong somehow? No, that’s not the case… Do i feel guilty about myself? Why would i? Then, do i like Hestia?

-…

I flinched momentarily. Why was i getting stuck on this question? To begin with, why would i like Hestia? Not that i don’t like her, it’s just that Hestia and i weren’t together for that long. The time we’ve spent together was just under a week, how in the living hell would i fall in love with her?

I started thinking about the matter a bit more, further trying to understand myself more properly. i really wanted to just simply blame my hormones and Hestia’s looks as a woman, but i knew there was something more to it…

(Creak)

As i was thinking about the matter in hand, i realized that someone had opened the door to the bathroom. The sounds of footsteps were getting closer towards me.

Startled, i quickly turned to my left trying to see who it was that had entered the room…

Hestia.

-Hey, do you have some extra space in that thing?

She said playfully with a lewd smile on her face. Her body was once again fully exposed to my wild eyes as I took in her entire body and curves that were right here in front of me. I was distracted for a few seconds, forcefully swallowing my saliva while astounded.

-Ehh… you… this…

I wanted to ask a lot of things of her and because my mind was still trying to cool down, i couldn’t help but get tongue tied. Hestia also noticed and took the initiative, putting her leg inside the tub and quickly getting on top of me, using my shoulder as a pillow.

-I take that as a yes…

She said, making me stop any further attempts at speaking. Further silence enveloped the white bathroom… I could feel Hestia’s soft body on my own, even though we weren’t doing anything, it still made my heart beat faster. But then Hestia suddenly spoke, her tone was sad and hesitant.

-Am i a bother to you?

Hearing her say that, my heart almost instantly stopped beating as i felt a cold shiver run down my spine. Not sure what she was trying to say, but she continued with a small sad tone.

-I… I might have put you in a really bad position now that i think about it. I can see you are also a bit uncomfortable by this so you don’t have to hide it, even if… ehh?

I didn’t want to hear anything further so tightly hugged Hestia from behind. When i did that, Hestia stopped speaking and just looked down a bit shameful.

-You aren’t a bother, and it’s not that i am uncomfortable with you. No, it’s just that i am not used to this… i don’t know how to properly face you or what to say in such situations. i am just an awkward 15 year old kid who mostly tries to avoid talking, and who usually does things on his own. i may be smart but that doesn’t change that there are things i don’t really understand. Sometimes i am a complete air head about these things and sometimes i can be thoughtful, but i am 100 percent sure about one thing… you aren’t a bother Hestia. You may be annoying at times but that isn’t a flaw, it’s something that makes you a person to me… someone important to me.

Hearing me say this with such sincerity, Hestia turned her head away from me to hide her expression. But i didn’t let her do that and quickly stopped her. Turning her head towards me, i could see her smile and cry at the same time. She was still trying to hide it by raising her hands to block my view, but it was already too late since i had sealed my lips onto hers. She tried to resist momentarily but couldn’t form any strength for some reason. Even though she was a Phoenix, in my arms she was just an ordinary woman wanting to be loved. Not being able to resist it, she instead started to fall for it kissing me back passionately.

We continued to make out like this for about 3 minutes until both of us needed some air to breathe. When we parted, a small string of saliva was still connecting our lips. We stared into each other’s eyes, seeing the colors and emotions we were trying to convey to each other. And I finally realized what my true feelings were… i loved Hestia.

-Haha, you can be surprisingly cheesy sometimes you know…?

Hestia teased, making me slightly embarrassed. Because of it, she was also having a lot of fun toying with me. I didn’t retort and just let her have the fun she wanted since i could see that she was much more happier than before, and so was i.

We continued to have this back and forward exchange. i was also reverting back to my ordinary attitude but still very conscious about how close i was with Hestia. Without doing anything too erotic to her, my heart was also at a moderate pace not going too far into the red zone.

-So, you like me too don’t you?

-Ehh…

The question was very sudden and something that had me a bit rattled. Since i had the answer already, i was sure that it would be easy… but why was it so hard to say it?

-Uhuh…

I nodded slowly, agreeing with her. Seeing this, Hestia didn’t seem satisfied as she made a small frown while looking at me.

-Come on, say it properly. A simple “uhuh” doesn’t have the exciting spark to it.

Feeling that she was a bit forceful on how she was going to get this confession out of me made me feel a bit angry as i rebuked to her:

-How about you try it and we’ll see how you fare with it?

Hearing this, Hestia smiled with a pleased look. She turned her body, suddenly riding me and hugging my neck as she whispered to me:

-Alright then, it’s only fair isn’t it?

-What?!

Hearing her say this in such position made me really nervous once again. And with that, Hestia came closer to me stopping right before my face. Both of our noses meeting one and another, she was staring at me intently as if she was about to eat me. But i could also see a very determined look on her face, it was a serious look that i had never seen before.

-I love you. i love you so much that i would rather disappear all together than lose you, so i will never stop loving you.

Her confession combined with her womanly deep voice and serious gaze was enough for me to almost lose myself in her words. Those words had lunged into my heart deeply and engraved themselves onto it for eternity. At that moment, i already knew that trying to postpone it anymore would just hurt both of us so i gripped onto my courage looking into her orange flaming eyes. I then said:

-I love you too…

I didn’t add anything since it was already too embarrassing for me to actually say it. Hestia in turn didn’t seem to be dissatisfied about my confession and smiled happily. She returned to her original position with her back against my chest and her head on my shoulder, cuddling onto my neck…

It was peaceful like this, a feeling that i had never really experienced before surfaced in my heart as i felt content with what i had. I could feel that Hestia felt the same thing as i did…

Soon enough though, Hestia decided to be a bit sly. Acting a bit spoiled, she wanted me to fully wash her with my bare hands. In return, she would also do the same thing to me with something extra she suggested… i agreed a bit excited and we soon got back into each other.

===========================

-Ahhh, that was nice…

Hestia sighed out of relief as we left the love hotel. Both of us were somewhat anxious for what was about to come, but also really calm too so to say.

While walking, i felt my pants were really uncomfortable since Hestia had ripped off my underwear. In the end, i had to walk around in a strange manner to be less uncomfortable…

Before Hestia and i left the building, we had a small conversation about the situation. We decided that keeping this relationship a secret was best for everyone since i was still working and because we had a lot of people in the house. Having everyone know that I was with Hestia now could make me out as someone weird because of our age difference. But what really made me want to keep this a secret was… Stella.

I wasn’t ready to confront her with something like this. I wasn’t even completely sure how she would react but it was better to be safe than sorry i guess…

-Don’t forget what you promised me Dawn… Oh, i mean young master.

Hestia pinched me playfully from the side when she said that, making me turn my attention towards her. Yes, since both of us are going to keep this a secret, we had put on some basic rules about how we were going to go through with this.

Hestia was fine with keeping this a secret and understood my reasoning for it, but she also demanded that i would still spend time with her once every 2 days; be it dates, intimate moments, or whatever she wished for. We could choose the activity by turns; Hestia would choose one, then I would choose the next activity etc.

Originally, Hestia wanted to have me once a day but because i had so much going in my schedule, i suggested once every 3 days. She bargained it down to 2 days and how we were going to do it. Because she was starting to make a really dissatisfied face at the end, i just agreed to keep her happy and content. And like so, we were currently walking towards a nearby bank. On the way, i remembered that we would need some ready cash so everyone could function on their own while i was gone at work. But on our way, there was a problem…

-Hey handsome, are my undies showing?

As we walked through the streets, a pretty beautiful woman had stopped in front of me asking me this question. i was actually not wearing my mask because i was letting Hestia use it since i thought that it would be really hard to continue moving if a guy showed up every minutes as we walked. Because of that, i didn’t have a mask which ended up in this kind of situation…

-No…

I answered honestly, not really sure where she was going with this. Hestia who was standing behind me fumed angrily and was about to slap this woman with her kinetic powers. The only thing that stopped her was actually me, who warned her beforehand to not injure any normal people and just calmly turn them down. But this…

After i answered the woman properly, she smiled once again striking a seductive pose with her hips. She also winked at me while swishing her skirt in a pretty dangerous manner…

-Do you want them to?

-Ehh…?

-Enough…

Hestia finally couldn’t take it anymore and used her kinetic powers to rip the woman’s skirt apart, fully exposing her black underwear. The woman noticed it only a few seconds later as she felt the breeze between her legs, making her feel chilly. She looked down to see what was wrong and discovered that her skirt was ripped apart. Screeching, she picked up what was left of her skirt while hiding her private parts and quickly running away. The spectators who were watching this followed the half naked woman. Well, most of the spectators were guys so you understand what i mean by that.

-You are mine.

Hestia came closer to me, hugging me possessively by my arm as she said that, creating a invisible wall that pushed a woman away that wanted to approach us. Wanted to approach me to be precise…. This invisible wall worked actually very well since we made it towards the bank without a second incident. i wasn’t really sure if what she was doing was her powers, but i didn’t want to think about it any further since i found it a bit scary…

After we entered the bank, both Hestia and i stood in a line. i’ve never used a bank before but i was sure that i could deal with it easily. But who knew that after we entered, something like this would happen…

-EVERYONE RAISE YOUR HANDS! THIS IS A ROBBERY!

10 armed individuals with black masks suddenly stormed inside the building. Both Hestia and I had detected them before but since we couldn’t see them beforehand, we weren’t even thinking that they were robbers…

Chapter 89 Unexpected

In the end, Hestia some way or another was able to convince me into getting with her into bed. I still set some boundaries such as no intimate touching without my permission, or any overly suggestive words to break the mood.

Hestia hearing the conditions was nodding her head up and down, very eager to get under the blankets with me while stark naked. I told her that she can wear her clothes any time, but she insisted on staying nude just in case I had any kinky dreams she could fulfill. I thought her comment was pretty disturbing, but I tried to keep an open mind for now; I just pulled off my jacket and my pants leaving only my underwear and t-shirt on. This was actually a condition Hestia wanted no matter what it seems… She wanted me to be at least half-naked so she wouldn’t be the only weirdo. At the time, I just countered with an argument such as why couldn’t both of us be in clothing then? She didn’t reply to it and just bargained with me, ending up in this state…

-Come come come…

Hestia was already on the king sized bed patting the side next to her. She was covered by a huge red blanket showing a part of her breasts, but not everything as she laid her eyes on me. Her expression was smiling, but you could see a very underlying presence of lewdness hiding inside her sly eyes. She may not be intentionally planning anything but she definitely had some desires which were instinctive.

Of course with this topic in mind, it also made me think about “sex” in particular since my only real knowledge about pretty much everything was from books. I didn’t exactly know what the real thing would be like. Of course I know how the process goes and personally, I feel embarrassed like everyone else talking about this topic in particular. That’s why I mostly avoid it; I like to keep my head clean out of these things. But still, there were some things about the world that I just couldn’t understand no matter what book I read, it was useless.

With that in mind, I also slowly started to slip into the king sized red bed accepting Hestia’s invitation. I crawled under the blanket next to Hestia feeling slightly shaken…

-Let’s talk…

Hestia suggested, which was actually a good starter so I asked her:

-What do you want to know?

Hestia smiled once again and asked:

-Where did you come from?

I made a small laugh when I heard Hestia’s straight forward question. It made me feel really safe for some reason disclosing it to her, it was the same feeling I got when I first told Sera about who I was. So, I started telling her about where I came from starting from the beginning to the end but keeping some parts secret like my ability for example. But I did tell her more things than I told Sera, such as the Clavicula and when I got it.

I told her everything up to this point, keeping out the request I got from Chronos just in case. Instead, I told her that I was given a small request to rescue someone.

-Huh… so you do understand me…

Hestia muttered quietly her eyes were narrowed. A small glint of a flame could be seen as she made a glad expression on her face, getting slightly closer to me giving me the range to peek at her bare breasts which honestly, were hard not to look at…

Seeing my avoiding glances, Hestia grew impatient for some reason as she assaulted me from the side very quickly. She clung herself onto my back, pushing her chest onto me and embracing me entirely with her hands and legs letting me feel her thighs…

-Hey, didn’t I say…

Hestia smiled with mischief.

-No intimate touching without permission, does that mean you don’t like it?

I was a bit startled as I felt her voice being really sad for some reason, making me want to change my answer as I just muttered:

-No, I don’t particularly hate it or anything… it’s just that you are a bit hot, that’s all…

-Oh really…? Maybe I… oh sorry, I was about to break rule number 2 wasn’t I?

She said a bit embarrassed about herself. But was that really the case as she was smiling happily?

I sighed and answered for her.

-Yes, so what do you want to do next? How about you tell me about yourself for a bit? I don’t know where you came from and to be honest, you’ve never mentioned something like this.

Hearing my question, Hestia made a small breathing sound as she exhaled from her mouth letting me feel her warm breath tickling my neck. I wondered if this counted as suggestive move. Instead, I heard Hestia say:

-I don’t know where I came from, I only know that I wasn’t initially in the Clavicula and that someone saved me just after my birth. The memory is a bit fuzzy but if you wanna know, since the very beginning I was only able to observe through the eyes of the previous owners. I can’t see the events of present owners such as you, and not once was someone able to resurrect and meet my requirement. Still, I could train inside the Clavicula since it had individual spaces that I could control and create things in. The only downside in this space is that you can’t create anything conscious with intelligence, something alive and sentient like a plant is alright. But a dog or a bird isn’t possible, especially a human.

Her words were sounding lonelier the more she spoke, making me feel bad for her. To make it right, I grabbed her hand a bit harder to let her know that I was here for her. She took the signal quite well and laughed. While laughing pleasantly, she suddenly turned me around towards her, making me meet her face to face. This was getting hotter every second… I thought and it wasn’t just because of me, I could feel it literally radiating from Hestia…

-Uhm… Hestia, listen I am really not…

-Shhhhh.

Hestia shooshed me telling me to stay quiet. She was truly in full control of this situation which made me feel faintly helpless, but not in a bad way so to speak. It felt pleasant to be with someone I could rely on, it was just that I felt that we were forcing this too much…

-Don’t worry; I’ll take care of it…

Hestia whispered letting me ease up for a bit. I felt her hands travel towards me, grabbing onto my hands and pulling them towards herself. The next thing I knew, Hestia was pressing my palm onto her soft breasts letting me feel her hard nipples that were poking my palm, which felt very good by the way. Her body temperature was hot, burning and even almost smoking, but it didn’t hurt her. Flames weren’t hostile towards her, they were loving…

I could feel the pleasant air of her soft breathing closer and closer towards me. Her left hand was going up my body and embracing me, pushing me towards her. My eyes were still closed but I opened them at the last moment and looked into Hestia’s burning eyes. I could see the burning lust she was holding inside of herself, and also the gentleness and care she was giving me because of my age which I liked. Her lips were glossed with her saliva and then… then… then…

-Nhhhnnn!

We kissed. Hestia pulled her lips over to mine, linking our mouths and feeling the softness imprint onto our minds. She was also putting her leg over my body while hugging me tightly. I could see that she was slightly scared about the prospect of me leaving so she locked me like this, but I wasn’t going to leave…

I continued to make out with Hestia, embracing her myself and feeling her breasts push onto my chest. It was plainly obvious that both of us were as inexperienced as the other, having no clue what to really do in such situations. We were just improvising, trying not to turn it into something awkward and trying to please the other person with what we were doing so they would be satisfied…

Hestia and I more than once clashed our teeth together while doing this, and when we did the third time, Hestia decided to part herself from me looking ashamed of herself. Small vaporizing tears could be seen, making me slightly confused…

-Sorry… I… I’m not a good kisser… I’ve never… what I want to say is that you are my first…

I smiled understandingly. Hating to see her sad face, I pressed on not really caring about it and continued to kiss her while my other hand started to grope her left breast. I was getting turned on, and seeing Hestia making such a helpless expression for the first time, it aroused me a lot.

-Ahhh… Ohhh…

Hestia was surprised when I started to without a warning, ravish her to my desire. I started groping her and kissing her deeply as she also started to slowly get into it, making light moans here and there. Because of my hand violating her chest and soon finding our very own rhythm, Hestia hands were also starting to travel around my body grabbing onto my ass in particular. I could also feel her tongue inside of my mouth dancing, making me suck it and put my hand on her very own ass. I could feel her hot ass cheeks burning up in my sudden grab as she parted from my lips crying out…

-Ohhh you meanie, I wasn’t ready yet…

She looked at me very approvingly as she said that. She then faked a pout, giving me slight suggestive looks as she pulled the blanket over our bodies. Covering us fully, it allowed me see her crystal orange eyes that were igniting with lust inside the dark space we were covered in. This one scene in front of me was enough to remind me that what I was making out with wasn’t actually a human but a Phoenix. I didn’t care either way as I smiled to her and saying:

-Your eyes are shining.

She chuckled pleasantly as she replied to me looking deeply into my eyes:

-Yours are shining too Dawn.

I knew that already but I also noticed that Hestia was actually calling me by my name, which made me even more pleased as we stared into each other’s shining eyes. There was a very perverted glint in her eyes as we continued, ending up with her suddenly grabbing onto my hand and starting to lead it somewhere…

-I’ll show you how I feel right now…

She said aggressively while leading my hand down towards her crotch. I could guess what she was about to do and I wasn’t against it, continuing to stare into her eyes. I felt my hand touch Hestia’s wet pussy and feel the sticky warm liquid cover my hand. The feeling was strange but pleasant at the same time. I began doing my own thing and started massaging her wet pussy, getting closer to her and looking at her tits. I then starting to suck on one of them passionately… Hestia spasmed and twitched uncontrollably, quickly grabbing me into her embrace and pushing me further towards her, making me continue to work on both her tits and pussy at the same time.

-Ahhh, ahhh, yes! Yes yes, harder harder harder! Put it inside Dawn! Bite me, leave your mark on my perverted tits and make me yours and yours alone ahhh!

Feeling compelled by her dirty words, I finally put my finger into her pussy starting to shove it up and down making her spasm even more. Her back started shaking uncontrollably, moaning even louder.

-I am cuming, I am cuming!

Hestia exclaimed slightly panicked. Her grip towards me suddenly became very tight as my face lodged between her tits, shaking up and down rubbing onto me. I was still getting her off with my finger until she finally…

-Ohhhhoohhhh ahhh, oh my god!

Hestia shouted very loudly, a bit too loud to be honest. But not really important as I felt burning hot thick liquid cover my whole hand. It was coming from Hestia’s pussy who was shaking very hard trying to calm down from her orgasm. After a few minutes, Hestia’s grip on me eased up and her face showed a very satisfied dreamy expression. But then she suddenly realized something as she turned down towards me. I was still kinda stuck between her breasts smelling the sweet sweat of hers as she made a very perverted smile and said:

-We’re not done yet Dawn, I still have to make you feel good…

Because my head was a bit dizzy, I wasn’t sure what she was talking about. But suddenly, Hestia shoved me onto my back and got on top of me, letting me get a view of her gorgeous tits that were heaving up and down from her heavy breathing. Even her pussy was in sight, still completely drenched in juice…

-I don’t think you will need this anymore.

Going straight to the point, Hestia looked towards my crotch and saw the giant bulge that was coming from my underwear. She didn’t waste any second, grabbing onto the underwear as she ripped it apart with her strength, staring at my rising dick in daze.

-This is Dawn’s…

Hestia exclaimed in ecstasy. I was a bit embarrassed to be seen like this, not sure if my size was good enough for her…

Once again, Hestia didn’t waste a heartbeat and stood up on her knees over my dick. Holding it in position for what she was about to do, something I actually wanted and wasn’t against.

-Uhh? Ahhh, ohhhh.

-Ahh ahhh!

Immediately, Hestia put my dick inside of her pussy as both of us moaned in pleasure. Hestia felt also a slight sting of pain and I could see why because of the blood that was coming from her pussy. This showed that I had just broken her hymen taking her virginity…

-You can move if you want, I won’t mind anything if it’s for you…

She said a bit slurry while looking at me expectantly. I in turn accepted her offer feeling very eager. I started to push my dick into her, thrusting my hips up and down. Her pussy was a bit tight at first, but after the first few rounds, it starting to get easier to move. Hestia’s expression at the mean time was also getting more than pleased. The second I was thrusting it inside her, she moved her hips on her own to my rhythm, riding me with her wild moans. I reached out and grabbed her tits, groping them thoroughly and giving even more pleasure to each other.

-Hestia… I am… I am about to cum and need to pull out…

I told Hestia, warning her about it. She merely smiled and told me straight out feeling a bit sorry:

-Sorry Dawn, I can’t pull out. Cum inside me, cum already and let me feel your love juice fill me up all the way…

Even though I wanted her to pull out, Hestia refused and instead wanted me to ejaculate inside of her. What was worse was that Hestia started to move her hips faster and faster, almost sending me into oblivion. If I didn’t know from the start that Hestia was a Phoenix, then I would have assumed she was a succubus…

With those everlasting thoughts, my dick couldn’t take it any longer as my balls clenched up and my dick started to squirt hot liquid inside of Hestia. This made her shortly stop in her tracks as she looked up at the ceiling, her face full of ecstasy with a lewd smile as I drenched her insides.

-Ahhh… ahhh Dawn, I can feel your hot stuff pouring into me. It’s making me crazy…!

Hestia spasmed and twitched for a while, keeping my dick inside of her and then finally collapsing on top of me as her breasts rest on my chest. Both of us were panting really hard and on top of that, I was worried. I may have done something that I can’t reverse…

I pushed the tired Hestia to my right side and hugged her from there, kissing her softly while holding her in my arms stroking her back.

Hestia felt that something was wrong because of the way I acted so she asked:

-Is something wrong? Didn’t you like it? Or what is it?

I could tell Hestia was anxious. It seems like she misunderstood something and thought that she wasn’t satisfying enough, which could never be the case of course. No, the reason I was doing this was because of a different reason.

-Hestia… you didn’t pull away when I told you to…

-Ahh…

Hestia made a small understanding noise as she slowly parted from me, looking into my eyes smiling at my worried and determined expression warmly.

-Don’t worry, I won’t get pregnant. I’ve already burned up your cum inside of me before it could reach my uterus, that’s why I wanted you to cum inside of me… convenient right?

She said with a cheerful smile. Her explanation was slightly mind boggling but I also felt a bit relieved. I wouldn’t know what to do if I suddenly had a child. How would I explain that to everyone in my house exactly?

-Ehm… Dawn, what would you have done if I had actually become pregnant?

Hestia asked, her eyes down and her face red. I couldn’t see if it was out of embarrassment or just plain flushing because of the heat, regardless I answered honestly getting back into her warm embrace:

-I would take responsibility of course. It would be unexpected but I would take care of our child no matter what…

-Oh really? I am happy… I really am…

Hestia murmured faintly as she rested her face against my chest sobbing a bit. I wasn’t sure why she was crying but I was convinced that it wasn’t because she was sad…
