Chapter 2 (v2)
“Now, let me clean your body first.”
Runamiria bowed and twirled her body around. The jet-black maid outfit that she was wearing instantly changed and a mop and bucket appeared. She looked like she had gone through a magical girl transformation, but in a reverse order.
“Guardian-sama. Please excuse me.”
With a happy expression,.Runamiria softly jumped onto my back and began polishing my scales one by one.
If a normal person washes my body using a single mop, it will be a hell of labor. Even the fatigue would be immense. However because she is a spirit, she can’t feel any physical fatigue at all.
“Yes Guardian-sama. Is there a problem?
“If you are really that enthusiastic to wash my body, you could have just used [Acid Rain] to get rid of all the dirt and dust. Then the water-based wide area annihilation magic, [Tidal Wave], could have been used to splash the dirt away. Then cleaning my giant body would have been much easier.”
“Using magic? Uuh… You’re so lazy.”
“What? It’s convenient.”
She shook her head.
“Not good. [Acid Rain] may damage your scales and [Tidal Wave] is a high level magic. If something wrong gonna happen to you, I can only blame myself.”
My scales are actually strong enough to withstand it. In the past I even flew to space just to test my body.
“Alright, then at least you don’t have to do it one by one. After all, my body is black. Dirt and dust aren’t really that noticeable.”
My body was covered in black scales. My eyes are also black.
“No! I will polish it carefully. I will make sure your scales will shine.”
“Why do you bother to do such things?”
“To take care of you, Guardian-sama. You’re the reason that I live and I will continue serving you, as your happiness is mine too. I will continue to serve you in the future as I have in the past.”
“What? Sounds like you’re swearing a vow.”
“Of course, it’s a vow.”
Hmmm… Seems like there’s no way for me to change her mind.
In my previous life, I was an evil and lazy person however now, I couldn’t even win an argument against her.
Runamiria and I met ten thousand years ago. Due to some circumstances, I ended up saving her life. She responded by saying, “I will return the favour for saving my life.”
I didn’t take it too seriously back then. I already said that I was a lazy person and could sleep for years.
However, she didn’t listen.
After giving her numerous excuses, she still didn’t back down.
We continually argued for three consecutive days and nights until I gave up. I accepted her.
Runamiria said to me that she would serve me with her life.
While immersed in the old memories, Runamiria finished polishing my body. Now she’s on my wings.
If you saw her deep breathing while cleaning with such a serious expression, you too will get mischievous thoughts.
I lightly moved my wings to tease her.
“Aaahh! Guardian-sama… Stop that…”
I moved my wings down again just when she as about to clean, I moved my wings just in the perfect time.
“Puh.. Guardian-sama.. Please don’t tease me.” she said while pouting.
My mischieveousness payed off seeing the look on her face..
“Your body is all clean.”
Runamiria bowed down and gave a smile of accomplishment. Seemed like a whole day was consumed in the process of cleaning my body. I almost fell asleep but Runamiria kept scolding me.
“Guardian-sama. Please praise me.”
(TL note: oh no it seems like I have fallen for her)
Runamiria looked at me with her dazzling eyes. However I now only realized that she was covered in dirt. It didn't really reduce her charm but I can’t bare to leave her like that.
“Runamiria, come closer.”
“Yes? Guardian-sama, what are you planning to do? Perhaps. Please, let me prepare myself first.” she blushed as she said that.
“No need. Just come here.”
“Please excuse me.” she stepped up and smiled.
“Stand still okay?”
“Eh? Yes.” with a puzzled expression she stood still.
I used my tongue and licked the dirt off her cheek.
The scream of a woman attacked by a pervert resounded inside the cave. At first she was shocked, but after a short moment she realized the situation in which she was in.
“Ah.. Guardian-sama… Ah… Stop…. Ah… What are you doing?”
“You dirtied yourself while cleaning me and now it’s my turn to clean you.”
With burning red cheeks, Runamiria stared at me with watery eyes. Even though I’m a dragon, I’m still a man on the inside. Seeing a girl cry, I’m still too weak for that.
“If that’s so, let me lick your dirt too! I’ll clean you by licking from now on.”
Runamiria said that eagerly. I don’t have such a hobby but maybe being licked isn’t so bad.
“First of all, if you had used [Acid Rain] and [Tidal Wave] you wouldn’t be in this situation.”
It was something very important to her. My appearance was that of a dragon, but her appearance was that of a human’s. Cleanliness should be more important to her than it meant to me.
“I understand that. But, Guardian-sama, you didn’t have to lick me!”
She said that with her face in a fiery red color. Well, licking a woman’s face may be considered sexual harassment even if lovers do it. However, our relationship was between a master and a servant.The image of a bald manager licking the face of a beautiful office lady drifted to my mind. That's definitely sexual harassment no matter how you look at it.
“Sorry Runamiria. I didn’t mean it like that.”
“So, you will lick anyone that’s dirty then?” she was looking at me with a blank stare.
“No.. Of course not… I will not lick anyone else.”
“Ah… That’s fine if you understand that…. I’m… I’m not really angry when you licked me you know…”
Even for me who had lived for many years already, a woman’s heart is and would always remain to be a mystery.
