From Inside The Cage - Chapter 3
“So I can’t have any paper today? Hmmm…”
“If you write erotic stories like yesterday, I won’t be able to do my job.”1
“Then how do I pass the time? …Oh, If I perform my father’s favorite dance, it might help me get some exercise.”
“Yes. Fortunately, the clothes I’m wearing now flutter like a dancer’s.”
I began to dance my father’s favorite dance, humming, the sounds occasionally escaping my lips. I recreated the image in my mind with my own body.
When I loosened my outer garment and twirled around, my outer garment spread out like flower petals. Spreading the cloth wrapped around my feet like flower petals, I continued to dance.
I didn’t know the lyrics, so I just hummed the melody, and my eyes met the red eyes that were staring at me. His mouth slackened slightly as he gasped.
“AAAAAHHHH! Why do you have to start stripping in front of me?! NO! NO DANCING, EVER! You’re only allowed to show your skin to certain people!”
My bare skin was exposed, except for the cloth around my waist and the rest of my clothes were already scattered by my feet; my bare skin directly touched the open air. I didn’t feel cold at all, this was probably due to the magic in this cage. Truly high spec!
“This is just the beginning of the show. When the dancer gently pulled off his underwear and leaned on my father without a single thread on him, my father’s excitement will reach its peak…”
“What kind of stuff does your father show his kids? It’s not his excitement that’s reached its peak, it’s his crotch!”
“And then I’ll have another brother or sister.”
“Don’t look so happy about it!!! Does your father have no control over his lower body?!”
“I often hear people say, A man in the prime of his life has two hearts, one above and one below. The top part is reason, and the bottom part is instinct.”
“Hey, What the heck is that! The Human race is scary! Do Human race have a year-round mating season?!”
I was scolded so badly I had no choice but to put on the clothes that were scattered at my feet.
I’m not allowed to write nor dance, what am I supposed to do?
Just when I was at a bit of a loss, the male Vampire who rarely spoke to me during the day suddenly opened his mouth,
“Naturally, the stripping wasn’t appropriate, but your singing was very nice.”
It was about three seconds after everyone looked at the man that I realized that I was being complimented.
It was the first time someone had ever complimented my singing.
I felt a sudden urge to giggle. I tried to hold it in, but a strange sound escaped from my mouth.
I was happy.
I exhaled exaggeratedly and wrapped myself in a nearby blanket, hiding my face.
I can’t let that guy see my face like this. I’m sure I’m making a ridiculous expression that I’ve never made before. It’s the first time I’ve ever felt the muscles in my face loosen this way, it’s strange.
“Why do you hide your face? Let me see your cute face and please sing like a little bird for me.”
“What’s wrong with him, did he eat something strange?”
“Wait, Blood, I can’t believe you’re saying that. Did you swallow a centipede?”
The people around me were saying things I didn’t understand, but I shook my head from underneath the blanket, not wanting to be seen.
“What’s the matter, won’t you show me your cute face?”
“I-I-I can’t! I’m sure I look like I’m in my fifth brother’s secret book, as if I’ve ascended to heaven and all the muscles in my face have loosened…! The muscles in my face have become so loose that I’m sure that only the whites of my eyes are showing and my tongue slack! To see my face like that would surely make one’s love for 100 years cool down2. Please don’t do this to me…!”
“Huhuhu, Hahaha, Is the prince making an ‘ahegao’3 in that blanket now? I would love to see that, but I’d hate for other people to see it… So, please show it to me at night. Just like the very sexy face you showed me yesterday.”
“EH, EH, WHAT, Did you eat the Prince, Blood? Are you saying that while knowing that he’s our state guest!?”
“No, my Lord, the prince is still a pure virgin and reeks of virginity.”
“He hasn’t eaten the prince, but he’s already seen his sexy face!? I’m getting more curious! But wait, is he taking advantage of the current mess to woo the Prince at night!?”
He gave no reply to anyone around him, and I could sense his presence went away. I was half relieved and half sad. I wondered what was wrong with me.
The office was empty at night. The flickering flame of the lamp swayed. But today’s shadows reflected on the wall was as if the man and I were overlapping.
“You’ve been under a blanket since then, haven’t you? Did you have dinner?”
“I-I’m so overflowing with feelings, I don’t think I can fit anything more inside.”
“Oh. I’m afraid your body won’t last that way. You’re going to show me your ahegao, aren’t you?”
“Is that enraptured face called ‘ahegao’…? I’d rather you don’t see it at all, that kind of it’s-the-end-of-the-world face.”
As I answered in a muffled voice from inside the blanket, I felt a weight on my shoulder. I knew that I was being pulled close and my shoulders were held in an embrace.
“I want to see it so badly. With my own hands, I want to make you enraptured with all your body and see that ahegao on your face. Just you and me, I want us to make love with each other and savour each other until morning, and I want to make you say, ‘I want more’ with that sweet mouth of yours.”
“I’m very interested in the idea of ‘making love with each other’, but… while making love, do I have to want something…? I don’t know much… If we rub our skin against each other, embrace, kiss, and if heaven confirms our love, we will have a child, right?”
“Yes, that’s right. But there is more that needs to be done before a child can be born. Well, the thing that I wish you to say, ‘I want it’—exactly that thing. Hmm, if I were to give you an example, the part where your father got excited…”
I let out a sigh as I was enchanted by the man’s beautiful smile when he nodded, ‘But what about the crotch?’ I wondered.
In the books kept secret by the people around me, there were only vague descriptions of the contents. Even in the picture scrolls, the crotch was painted black, so I couldn’t tell what it actually looked like without the black part. All I knew was the man had a pleased face when the woman spread her legs very wide and appeared very sloppily. I remember how perplexed I was as I wondered whether the man was happy just because the woman spread her legs.
“I thought you seemed very mature, but no, when I pull a layer of skin off you, you turn out to be so innocent. That’s cute.”
“Pull… Do I need to have it pulled off? I’m embarrassed to say that… Actually that part of the skin is not yet pulled off…I was told that when I grow up, it can be pulled off naturally, so I wonder if I haven’t grown up yet…”4
“We’ll have to see about that. Don’t worry, I’ll carefully pull it off for you.”
“You’ll turn me into an adult…!”
I was so touched that I looked up from the blanket, exposing my face, and as soon as our eyes met, the man covered the area below my mouth with his hand.
“… You are very bold in the daytime, and by night you are so lovely… which one is the real you?”
“Both of them are me, but during the day I have nothing to do and I don’t know what to do; but at night, just watching you do your work, somehow I feel like the part of me here is being filled up.”
When I pressed on my chest, a sigh-like breath escaped from his mouth.
“So, what if I touch you? Would that fill your chest too?”
He gently caressed my ear with his finger; My heart thumped hard.
“N-No, it doesn’t…!”
When I replied honestly, the man stopped moving his fingers as if surprised.
“This part here does not fill up, but it thumps so hard…! This has never happened before, what’s wrong with me! Is my heart beating irregularly…? Is this some kind of disease…?”
As I held my palpitating heart, the man leaned his face to my chest as he asked ‘where? where?’. My heart palpitated even more vigorously with his action.
“Your heart is thumping really hard. It’s a very energetic heart. Wonderful.”
“It-It’s the first time I’ve been complimented on my heart…”
“Me too, I’ve never actually complimented a heart before. May I touch and feel your energetic heart directly on your skin?”
“Er, Urmm, I think my heart would jump out of my chest if you touched me directly…”
“Don’t worry, I’ll hold it for you. And I’ll be responsible for pulling that layer of skin off you.”
“Ye-yeh…” My reply turned out strange as blood rushed to my head, making it spin.
Cold fingers touched the nipples decorating my chest and then they went away. The man’s head was resting on my exposed skin, listening to the sound of my heartbeat. My heart was on the verge of exploding from too close a distance, and it exploded the moment the man’s finger poked the top of my thing that reached the peak!
‘WHAT? WHAT?’ My head went into panic as to what had actually exploded while my mouth let out an obscene voice I would never imagine it could, “Hnnn~”.
I quickly pressed my mouth shut and squeezed my eyes shut. If I don’t keep my face tight, I’m going to end up looking like it was the end of the world. Although the man did say that he wanted to see it.
“You are really cute and innocent.”
The man chuckled as he traced his finger around exploding my lower body.
T/N: Thanks for waiting and Happy reading!
We really appreciate it, if you guys could help us write a reviews or leave a ratings on NU, if you like the story. Thankyou! ?❤
- Probably this is the Demon King talking.
- It’s like when you unexpectedly see unpleasant aspects such as personality and life after starting dating, and you are suddenly disappointed or disillusioned with your partner.
- if you ever read smut manga, you know what kind of face this is, or if you don’t, you can try google but be warned. lol
- This is probably talking about the foreskin of an uncircumcised pe*is. While previously, the phrase ‘pull a layer of skin off’ is used as metaphor, the prince took it literally.
