Why, Can't You Eat? - Chapter 10
“…It’s my… first time…”
“Oh my. It is? But from now on, you’ll know the joy of pleasure. We can enjoy it together.”
My insides tightened over his erect manhood as I absorbed essence from him. His length was more satisfying than I thought, but when I saw him crying sadly like this as he said he lost his purity, my mouth watered again.
However, unlike before, I couldn’t be more aggressive because he was now wary and nervous. I was thinking about what to do, but then—
“Ares? Why are you… here…”
“Odil! I-It’s not what you think, Odil. I didn’t do it on purpose! I’m—heeuuk!”
As he entered the tent, Odil’s tired face hardened as soon as he saw me and Ares in bed together. I think they’re close. Were they friends? My belly throbbed with a strange feeling of anticipation.
Odil approached me without saying a word, then said fiercely despite Ares’ moaning.
“Didn’t you promise not to touch anyone else?”
“Yes, I promised not to touch your subordinates. Ares isn’t your subordinate, is he?”
“You, you despicable wench…!”
“It’s a relationship that would only last until you find my ring anyway, so what’s the problem?”
“Huh…? What ring?”
Ares didn’t seem to understand the situation properly. I didn’t say anything to him, so of course he didn’t know. But apart from that, I thought he was a man who could catch on quickly.
Odil’s expression became distorted. It seemed like he was resisting the urge to unsheathe his sword.
Oh, how easy it is to handle a responsible, upright man. Even if we said it’s a contract, it was just a verbal promise, but Odil really seemed to want to keep it.
“Shall we go over it again in the morning? To be honest, you’re not enough for me. In fact, if Ares hadn’t come in, this wouldn’t have happened.”
“I-Is it my fault?”
“Yes. You seduced me.”
If we were to set things straight here, I was the one who made the biggest mistake here, but I said this to Ares shamelessly anyway. If you knew what a succubus was, then you’d know about the ‘attraction’. But Odil didn’t say anything and instead sighed.
“Then with Ares, it can’t be helped… From now on, keep away not just from my subordinates, but also from other men.”
“Nuh-uh. We already agreed on just your subordinates. It’s not fair if you change the contract all on your own, hm?”
“Then what’s your plan?”
“Let’s do it like this. If you want me gone, then find my ring right away. But how can you find something that disappeared without a trace? That’s why find other men who can help you with the search and make them enter a contract with me. You have to think about my needs, too. You know what a succubus is, right?”
“Is it your first time seeing one?”
“Why are you yelling like that?”
I smiled as I saw Ares’ crying face, but he didn’t say anything more. Odil, on the other hand, seemed to be lost in thought, pressing a finger to his wrinkled forehead.
With a disdainful expression, Odil looked at me once, then went out. Ares dressed himself and followed him out.
Left alone, I looked towards the direction they went. I really don’t understand. If I used ‘attraction’, which was a succubus’ ability, I’d look like a man’s ideal type, or the most beautiful woman he could imagine.
But Odil doesn’t smile at me, nor does he look as if he’s swayed even a little… His reactions were unfamiliar to me because everyone around me would just be captivated by my face.
Well, whatever. I’m quite satisfied today. After flicking a finger to darken the tent, I closed my eyes.
When dawn broke out, Odil returned with two more men, still with a distorted expression on his face. It seemed that even though he didn’t say it, he agreed to my proposal.
“Are you really a succubus?”
“So what did Ms. Succubus do to our men?”
“What did I do? Don’t look at me like I’m something scary.”
I looked between the man with platinum blond hair that shone subtly of gold, then at the man with black hair. Was it possible that there’s a handsome guy like this? With eyes so red, the man with black hair smiled an insincere smile. Even if I took out my tentacles or conjured my mana here, it wouldn’t be useful on a vigilant man like him.
“If you lost your ring, you can find it on your own. Why must you bother innocent people?”
“Hey, Odil said he’ll take responsibility. You don’t know what a succubus is?”
“What, that you seduce men and take away their energy?”
Goodness. How can you be so straightforward? Because I had lived a quiet life so far, I wasn’t familiar with such a rough way of speaking.
Seeing my blushing cheeks as I nodded, the black-haired man threw back his head and guffawed. He looked like a decent man at first, but his smile was too crooked.
“Sure, okay. This is going to be fun.”
“It doesn’t matter, does it? I’ll take her, so you can discuss more.”
My wrist was grabbed and I was dragged somewhere, but the part that was touched somehow stung. I wanted it, but not like this. When I pulled away nervously, the man tilted his head to the side.
“What? Didn’t you want to do it?”
“Don’t grip too hard. It hurts.”
“My grip wasn’t that strong… Ah, alright. Sorry.”
After he apologized right away, he took my hand again and led me away. I was scared that it would hurt again, but this time, I didn’t feel anything.
I wondered where we were going, but he led me to a wider tent than others. And as soon as we went inside, he pushed me back on the bed. Then, he pressed down and spoke.
“I’m interested. Can you teach me?”
“Sure. But it’s not my preference to be submissive.”
“Huh? What… umph!”
I pulled him down and reversed our positions, climbing on top of him. He smiled awkwardly when his hands and feet were tied up by the tentacles that popped out the same moment I moved.
“So you like this kind of play?”
I replied with a brazen smile as I watched him being soaked in the pheromone serum that the tentacles had shed. His name’s Damian, right? He looked relatively young, but from his actions, that didn’t seem to be the case.
And unlike his previous confident attitude, he quickly succumbed. I was sitting on Damian’s lower body when I starkly felt something getting bigger under me. Again, the insides of my belly started to tremble.
“Ah, w-wait. If you move like that… urk!”
“You asked me to teach you. And I will—adults must learn through their bodies after all.”
As I grinded against him with my back arched, Damian groaned in surprise. As expected, it didn’t seem like he’s as experienced as he looked. Why was he being so arrogant, then?
I licked my lips, a habit now, and slowly caressed all over as I kissed Damian’s chest and left marks everywhere.
“You don’t have much experience, do you?”
“…I’m a succubus.”
“Then are all succubi so clumsy?”
Damian said this while panting, a smirk on his face after filling me up so much.
“Even though you’re in this state because of a ‘clumsy’ succubus?”
“You’re cheating with those tentacles.”
“I can do it without them.”
“Then prove it nex—ah, no, wait not now… hey!”
What do you mean ‘wait’? I sat on top of Damian again, who still couldn’t control his body, then took in his manhood into my entrance all at once.
“You said I’m clumsy, hnngh…. But look at how you’re reacting.”
“Mmh, hngh, but this is still clum—AH!”
I didn’t want to listen. Whatever Damian wanted to say, he couldn’t complete his words because I tightened my inner walls hard and rocked my hips.
Noticing that I was doing it on purpose, he kept trying to say something, but he would always stop short because I would tighten him over and over again. I’m the victor here.
“I can’t hear your voice anymore, hm?”
Damian, whose face turned red, looked at me as though I was being unfair.
What did I do for you to look at me like that?
When I stared into his hazy eyes, I smiled, watching him breathe heavily and closing his eyes helplessly.
After so many hours of carnal pleasure, my body trembled, but I was slowly getting used to it.
The next day, the man with pretty platinum blonde hair visited me. He said his name was Endymion, and that he’d readily enter a contract with me. It was unlike his reaction yesterday when I saw him hesitate, but as I looked at his nice face, I spoke honestly.
“You didn’t seem willing to do it yesterday. Did you change your mind?”
“I heard about the situation from Odil and Ares. It doesn’t matter to me if you’re a succubus or not.”
There seemed to be something amiss, judging by how solemn his tone was. However, as long as I can absorb as much essence as I want, then it’s all good.
And that very night, I went straight to Endymion. If I had heard from him again that I was ‘clumsy’, then I’d be really angry, but…
“Why are you so good at this?”
With a curious gaze, he gently touched the tentacle that tied him up. I pressed my body down on him, climbing on top just as I usually do. My hands roved all over him and touched places that only felt good.
Endymion smiled shyly and spoke.
“Are you really a succubus?”
“Well, humans are all different. I’m sure it’s the same for magical creatures.”
Unlike his bashful smile, his voice was nonchalant. Don’t I look like a succubus? Odil or Ares never said anything about it…
Rather than just telling him about it, I thought it was better to just let him have a taste.
I went to visit Odil next, but it was hard to get a hold of him. And apart from that, he didn’t trust me at all. If I went to him while he was still working, or if I gave the knights just a slight glance, he would clench his teeth and get mad right away.
“Don’t touch the knights. Never.”
“Then let me have my way with you a little more. You said you’d take responsibility.”
No matter how faithful I was to my impulsive instincts, I was going to keep my promise. But how could he say that to me?
Odil sighed, then nodded. But he continued what he was saying as though it was a warning.
“Make sure you keep your promise. And don’t show yourself to anyone afterwards. There might be side effects to your memory manipulation.”
“That’s true. Is this a promise or a contract?”
“It’s both a promise and a contract.”
What an upright man. As he stood with a frown on his face, I leaned closer and stole his lips.
tl/n: I previously used the term ‘high-ranking men’ for the five men that Lily’s involved with, and I kept it vague because I wasn’t quite sure about their ranks in nobility. But through the last few chapters, it’s revealed that they’re all commanders lol. you can just keep that in mind. I’ll also just call them ‘commanders’ from now on.
a quick list for those who want to keep track:
1. Odil (white/silvery hair)
2. Ares (red hair, green eyes)
3. Endymion (platinum blond with a golden sheen)
4. Regulus (no description yet, but he’s the puppy/younger brother type)
5. Damian (black hair, red eyes)
So… who are y’all betting on as the ML? or are we going the best route—a reverse harem ending~? mwahahaha
