The Incubus System Chapter 200. Do You Want To Be My Wife
I just finished putting my sunny side up onto my plate when I heard footsteps' sounds coming from the stairs.
"Good morning, Celia," I said. My hands raised the two plates containing two pairs of toasted bread topped with sunny side up eggs and avocado.
"I've made our breakfast," I said with a smile.
Celia, who was ready to go to school, looked at me in surprise since today was not her birthday yet I still made her breakfast. Her eyes were fixed on the plates in my hands.
"Brother, you don't have to do this," she said as she walked over to me.
"It's okay, I woke up too early this morning." I passed the plates to Foxy and she put them on the dining table.
"What time did you wake up" she asked. Her hand wiped the counter with a kitchen towel. While I put the frying pan into the kitchen sink and washed my hands.
"Around 04.00 AM," I said casually as my hand turned off the sink.
"And what time did you come home last night" Celia's voice came from behind me.
"Past midnight," I said in the same tone.
As I turned around, Celia looked at me with her arms folded across her chest. Her eyes stared at me in annoyance mixed with worry.
"Doesn't that mean you barely slept last night"
I could only be silent with my eyes fixed on her since what she said was true.
"I couldn't sleep ..." I admitted. After listening to Tania's explanation, I couldn't help myself but keep looking for ways to deal with this problem. Strangely, I didn't feel tired or sleepy after I woke up from that strange dream, but I guessed this was because I was a demon. In other words, as long as I could fill my stamina with sex, my condition would be fine.
Celia sighed. This time her gaze turned worried.
"What happened" Her worry mingled between her tone.
"The crack is getting worse and I don't know the cause yet, even though it feels very close. It's just like-- it happened in front of my eyes, but I can't see it and I don't know what's going on. I feel like a fool. Also --- "My confusion evident in my tone.
"---- I just got this weird dream ..." I couldn't help it, that dream really bothered me even though I didn't remember what I dreamed about. But the pain ... was so real. There was a melancholy feeling in me, a nostalgic and longing feeling that I didn't know what and to whom. I thought I missed my mother, but when I remembered about her, something felt off. I couldn't pinpoint what it was. It was so weird and bugged me a lot.
"Was that a dream about dad" she made a wild guess since I said I dreamed about it last week.
I shook my head from side to side with a frown and tried to guess what it was about.
"I don't remember. But ... the pain --- it felt so real," I said in hesitation.
"I think it was about mom. But I'm not sure either."
Celia observed my expression for a moment before approaching me and hugging me slowly.
"Do you miss mom" Her voice sounded sad. She buried her face on the side of my shoulder and I could feel her hands gently touching my back.
"I don't know ..." Rather than missing her, I was more curious about where she was now. Also angry after hearing what they did to Tiffany's mother. But since they weren't at Aeros and I had another emergency besides looking for the woman who dumped me and Celia, I would let it slide for a while. At least until things were more stable.
"You must be exhausted, that's why you got that weird dream. I know you are trying your best, but you shouldn't push yourself."
I was speechless as I deep in thought. I knew this was too sudden, considering I just turned into an Incubus a week ago, but judging by what Tania said about Lilieth and the other's struggles, even Lord Damon himself, I had no reason to sit around and do nothing. I put my hands on her shoulders and pushed her gently to release her embrace.
"You don't need to worry about me. I'm fine. I think it's just a nightmare since I fought some disgusting demons last night," I reasoned.
She frowned with eyes fixed on me.
"Are you sure" she said in disbelief.
"I'm sure of it." I did not want to make her worry. A soft tap from my index finger landed on her forehead.
"You should worry about yourself," I reminded her with a smile.
Her hand rubbed her forehead.
"It's not my fault. Those demons just showed up there out of nowhere," she said with a pout. She quickly caught on what I meant was yesterday's incident.
"I know it's not your fault. But why did you come home so late" I pointed out what I meant.
"I studied with my friends after school. Who knew that idea was a bad one," she tried to defend herself even though the government had warned us to stay at home since the Cretunt Bridge's incident.
"But since you already know the situation, you know what you have to do, right" I asked in a serious tone.
She nodded her head.
"I'll go home as soon as I finish my exam and avoid unnecessary trips," she said.
I gave a pat to her head as a breath out of my mouth.
"And I'll drop you off and pick you up today," I said.
"You don't have to do that," she said in a panic.
"My school and your college are not in the same direction, it will be a waste of time."
"I will take you by my portal skill, not by the train." Besides, I was sure Nighthallow Station was still in a mess because of yesterday's incident. And since the Station line was impassable, the train had to take a further detour.
"Ha ... How could I forget you have that strange skill," said Celia with a long breath.
Another chuckle came out of my mouth.
"It's not weird, Celia. That skill allows me to move freely."
"I can't deny that. But it still feels weird to me." Her face turned gloomy.
"I mean ... Your change --- sounds like a tale. Are you sure we can't ---"
Before she finished her sentence, I interrupted her.
"I'm sure of it, Celia." I knew she was trying to make sure if there was another way to turn me into a human again.
"It's like I said yesterday. If I turn back into a human, I'll die." My hand touched her cheek.
"And I don't want to leave you just yet ..." My eyes looked at her deeply showing my seriousness.
"I still want to protect you," I said again in a more gentle voice.
After that, our eyes fixed on each other and fell silent. Our thoughts were immersed in our emotions. Somehow, my heart started beating faster than usual. Unconsciously, our faces drew closer at the same time until our lips touched each other. But a second later, we moved away. Our eyes met again for a moment before our lips drew closer and landed on each other for the second time. This time, a movement accompanied our lips. Then we paused a moment before moving our lips to grasp each other's. Our bodies got closer and pressed against each other. Likewise, our hands that were on each other's bodies.
"Mphh ..." A muffling sound came out of our mouths. We tilted our heads as our tongues moved and explored each other's mouths. Our hands gripped each other's bodies. It was a long passionate kiss, but since I knew Celia had to go to school, I couldn't do more than this.
As we broke our kiss, a string of saliva still connected our tongues. Our hands wiped the rest of the saliva on our lips as we caught our breath. Our eyes were still glued to each other. Then without further ado, I asked her.
"Celia, do you want to be my wife" I said in a serious tone.
Celia's eyes widened. Her surprise was clearly visible on her flushed face.-
