Chapter 18: Gem – The King’s Younger Brother, Broudo POV.
T/N: Partially edited (by yours truly).
I have an incurable disease since 5 years ago.
It called love.
At first, I did not understand the meaning behind the symptoms that kept persisting on me. However, after suffering from it for the past 5 years, I finally noticed its meaning.
5 years ago, she was only a ten-year-old girl with a mature idea that was totally clashed with her small appearances.
However, since then, she had grown to become so lovely that it had gone beyond my recognition.
I have come to like that person for the last 5 years, and I still like her even now. Therefore I would like to think that I do not actually possess any tendencies as a lolicon.
I did not feel excited when I saw any other girls, so I think I am completely safe. (T/N: From being a pedo, of course)
However, the story was different now. She had undertaken heavy responsibilities upon herself for the sake of studying medicine.
For her brother’s sake, she has been researching days and nights to produce magical gem that will help them counter the effect of the charm magic and aphrodisiac; and with my own judgment, I have decided to give a helping hand to her.
And the research has finally completed just now.
Once this research end, she will surely not going to come over to my place anymore.
However, if we did not produce it as soon as possible and presented it to her brothers, we might not make it on time to serve its purposes.
Above anything else, I also would like to see her delightful face.
Though, I, myself, thought that this was a stupid idea.
However, I still let Mujina, the intelligence personnel who worked for me, send a report to her.
After a while, Mujina came back and reported that she had contacted that girl’s exclusive intelligence personnel.
After 10 minutes, that girl showed up at my lab while breathing hard.
That girl’s physical strength seemed enough to rival the assassin’s unit, let alone the intelligence personnel.
I seriously stared at her.
I really thought that she had grown to become even prettier than before.
Her twin-tail red hair had never changed, but that sparkling, jewel-like dark green eyes and that soft, full lips make me realize how charming she was.
Her height should be around 160 cm, right?
Her breast proportion also seemed to be on the large side.
Any other healthy man would surely double-take whenever she appeared in front of them.
“Is there anything that matter?”
“No, I was so absorbed in thinking that we have been researching on this for a long time.”
That girl grinned in reply.
No matter how much I attracted her, she was the fiancée of my nephew.
What’s more, this nephew of mine was the first-in-line to the throne.
I couldn’t have her.
I walked towards the box containing the magic gem and opened its lid.
Inside, there was a jewel in the shape of a red rose.
Thinking of her, I decided on a whim to include an extract of red rose in it, and it had become the decisive factor in the completion of the gem.
This gem that emitted the smell of rose was something that she had been searching for.
I slowly lifted it from the box before I turned my body towards her.
Without any hesitation, that girl drank the dangerous, level 5 aphrodisiac at once.
That bottle rolled down near her feet as soon as she finished it.
She started to lose her balance, that I caught her body in a hurry.
At that moment, the focus of her empty eyes was…
The girl in my arm started to call my name sensually.
The impact of it was too amazing.
Is it a fever? I panicked as I put my hand on her forehead.
That girl quickly grabbed my hand as she rubbed it on her cheek.
“It is so cool…….It feels so good….. More, touch me….”
What should I do with this cute person!!
What do you want me to do, actually?
[To accept a woman advances…..]
The words that my father had said before suddenly came into my mind.
Of course, you can’t do that!!
In my arm, that girl continued to smile.
This is bad!!
Is it okay for me to kiss you?
I do not want to feel guilty about kissing her when she was in this kind of state.
I quickly put the gem into her hand before clasping it close.
After a while, she finally returned to her sense.
“I am sorry. But this gem surely has amazing potency.”
That girl easily gets off from my embrace as she stared at the gem.
I wobbly made my way to my seat before sprawling on the desk.
Shortly after, her brother came inside the room in haste.
I was relieved that I was no longer with her alone.
Seeing her brother, that girl smiled happily.
Originally, she made this gem for the sake of her brothers. Therefore, it was natural for her to be happy about it.
However, for some reason, she told me that she would give the first gem to me.
No, as of now, I do not want her to let go of that gem.
She looked astonished as I pleaded with her to do so.
“What had happened here?”
Her brother looked at me worriedly. However, I wished that he will not ask me any further.
“I swear… I did not do anything that breaches any social etiquette…….. Please rest assured.”
I would like him to forgive me for only being able to say those words.
A/N: Everyone, Broudo-sama has been working hard!
