Chapter 4 [Part 2] – A Turbulent Night
It was so ridiculous to the point that I almost laughed out loud.
For ‘sexual desire’ to have come out of Kaligo’s mouth, who lived in abstinence throughout his life.
I can’t believe he asked me to make a potion to make it disappear.
Because the original owner of this body never held back his sexual desire, it was clear to her that her ex-husband now finds it difficult to continue living in abstinence every day.
How many years has it been since he ended his promiscuous past?
Looking back, it was said that after you nearly died, your behavior changed in an instant as if you were a completely different person.
Which is to say that my ex-husband probably entered the novel at that moment.
Ashia narrowed her eyes at Kaligo. Ashia was already convinced that he was her ex-husband, but she decided to find more proof to add to her conviction.
“Maybe the rumors you heard are true.”
…..In fact, they were more of a scandal rather than just rumors.
When she started talking about his scandal, his head, which had diverted away from Ashia, turned to face her again.
Perhaps, because of the way she said those words, the atmosphere changed at once. He couldn’t easily say the words ‘sexual desire’, so he’d divert his head away from her and bend his slender eyes as if he was happy about his curse.
“There are countless rumors about me. Which one exactly are you talking about….?”
Kaligo’s lips, which were straight, now formed a shallow smile.
At his answer, similar to that of a large predator, she made a mean, voluptuous smile.
But, her smile was never a gentle one in the first place. She had always lived everyday with fascinating but dangerous smiles.
Upon hearing his question, Kaligo might’ve thought that she’d back out, however, she won’t. It was the perfect moment for a wizard’s curiosity to be executed.
“I heard rumors saying that you completely changed as if you became a completely different person.”
“A completely different person…..? Please explain in detail.”
“In detail?……If you say that, you might not be able to think of an excuse as I tend to be tenacious at times like this.”
Kaligo laughed at Ashia’s words, which were rather bold. Soon after, permission was given with a laugh.
Kaligo’s red eyes watched Ashia with half-closed eyelids and his head tilted.
Because his eyelids are half-closed, it seems as though he is looking at her with slightly sharp eyes.
‘You thought I won’t be able to talk any further if you asked me to explain in detail?’
Without hesitation, Ashia began to explain his scandal in detail as if she had been waiting for him to give her permission to do so.
“I heard you spent the night with a woman every single day before. But, after that day, you never slept with a woman, not even once.”
“Day and night, inside and out. It’s been a long time since you’ve struggled to keep your dignity as a noble……”
TL/N – Day and night, inside and out. Like he doesn’t care when and where he does it.
Kaligo’s eyebrows twitched slowly.
“It is said that among the nobles of the Karhan Empire, only a few have been to the villa built in the northern mountains of the Tetrious territory……The territory is called the ‘Enchanted Labyrinth’, right?”
The North of the Karhan Empire, Tetrious territory.
It was another estate owned by the Grand Duke of Etous.
That specific territory has the shortest days but the longest nights on the entire continent. Only Grand Duke Kaligo and Prince Desian enjoyed the promiscuous life there.
As she was aware that she warned him that she might be tenacious, Ashia continued to talk about his embarrassing rumors for a long time after that.
“That is why it was rumored that you changed so much as if you became someone else. I can still explain, but do you want me to continue?”
Silence filled the office yet again.
Only the fire burning the firewood in the fireplace rang gently.
After a while, she spoke again.
“Now, may I know why you are trying to suppress your sexual desire?”
Kaligo, who was staring at Ashia, straightened his upper body that was buried deep against the sofa.
Only his upper body was revealed, yet the scent of his body spread throughout his whole office.
Ashia was taken aback. She didn’t directly come in contact with it, but she could feel that his body temperature was very hot.
“You’ve heard those rumors, but you haven’t heard all of them.”
Ashia raised her hand to pull her hood down a little bit more so that she could have a clear view of it.
I am aware that my hood is covering my whole face. However, I somehow feel as if he can see my face whenever he gazes at me.
“What are the…..other rumors?”
“The other rumors state that I did not survive the near-death experience years ago, rather, I came back to life.”
Ashia’s eyes, which were covered by her hood, moved slowly.
I think I’ve heard of that before. The way he spoke and acted changed in an instant after he almost died many years ago, which is probably the reason why there are speculations saying that he reincarnated.
Unfortunately, the accident did not happen in the original novel, so Ashia was unable to know of the exact happenings at that time.
‘If that’s the case, did he enter the novel around that time?’
As soon as Ashia, who had been pondering for a while, placed her hand on the table, a blank sheet of paper and pen appeared out of the blue. Whilst holding the pen, she wrote on the piece of paper and continued his words.
“First of all, you’re suffering from headaches and numbness in your hands and feet as a basic side effect.”
Kaligo thought for a moment as he touched the tip of his chin.
“……You have insomnia?”
“Yes, I can’t sleep at night.”
I’ve never heard of insomnia as a side effect of a potion. Perhaps his insomnia is not caused by medicinal drugs.
‘I think it’s a symptom caused by the lack of efficacy.”
The nights spent by Kaligo, depicted in the original novel, was described as colorful, promiscuous, and turbulent. He seems to have solved his uncontrollable desire that way.
Perhaps, his body clearly remembers that turbulent night. As long as his body remembers the heat, it may have been impossible to sleep soundly without taking proper medicine.
‘I think his insomnia and the other side effects of the curse will disappear as long as the potions are properly made.’
The problem though lies in this unknowable displeasure.
Let’s just think of this as something of minor importance and of him like any other client. That’s how I made up my mind, but somehow, I don’t know what’s causing this irritation of mine that’s coming from my heart right now.
The nights spent by Kaligo Etous, which was described in the novel, came across her mind again.
As she thought of the scenes described in the novel with the man’s face in front of her, Ashia’s eyes trembled slightly.
In fact, no wife would want to imagine or hear about the nights her ex-husband spent with other women.
What’s more, he was the same man who never touched her, and the same man who never even blinked at any temptation.
As she thought of how other women had touched him countless times, it made her heart boil with anger again.
