I Was the Heroine, and in the Sequel, Even Though I'm a Mob, All of My Stats Are Maxed Out - Chapter 39.2
“If you want, why don’t you sleep here with me?”
“The bed is very big.”
Unlike the bed at the inn the other night, this king-size bed would allow two people to sleep together, with maybe two Cheryls in between.
Alvin-sama had a blank expression for a moment, then smiled troubledly.
“Please don’t ever say that to a man other than me.”
“Good. I’ll sleep with you tonight.”
Even though it was something I had said myself, when Alvin-sama said that, I felt a bit fidgety.
“I’ll go get ready, so just wait a little while.”
“I’ll be right back.”
Patting my head, Alvin-sama left the room.
Soon after, Lara came to replace him and she hugged me tightly again.
“I’m really glad that Nina is safe. Erica will be fine too.”
“I’m glad. Thank you, Lara.”
Erica was still asleep, but the healing magic seemed to have worked well and she had nothing to worry about.
Theo was also tired from crying and seemed to be asleep. When he woke up tomorrow, I planned to apologize for not telling them about it.
“There are many things I want to ask you, but I’ll stop talking about dark things for today. So, I heard you’re sleeping with Alvin tonight, what’s going on with that?”
When I told her that I felt very lonely when Alvin-sama left my side, Lara put her palm to her mouth and said, “Well.”
“I see you have a girlish side to you too.”
“It’s so cute that you find it hard to stay away from him. Maybe Alvin’s usual protection of you has made you more aware of that fact.”
Seeing me who didn’t quite understand, Lara smiled weakly.
“I’m kind of sad, but Alvin is a good guy, except for his personality. It can’t be helped.”
“What do you mean?”
Even when I asked, Lara said, “I don’t want to assist him, so it’s a secret,” and wouldn’t tell me.
In the meantime, a knock sounded.
“Oh, the prince is back. Have a good rest!”
Lara stood up and left the room in a flash. Alvin-sama then headed over here.
It was the first time I had seen him in a nightgown, and I was taken aback at how different his atmosphere was from usual. When I thought about it calmly now, I felt like I made a bad idea about sleeping together.
“Sorry to keep you waiting, let’s go to sleep.”
“I brought you some incense to help you sleep better.”
“Thank you. Wow, that smells great.”
The incense in Alvin-sama’s hand smelled of gentle sweet flowers and was very soothing. I felt sleepy soon.
I timidly lay down on the bed. Alvin-sama also lay down in the vacated space.
Alvin-sama softly narrowed his eyes as he stared at me who was nervous.
“N-No, it’s not true.”
“Nina is the cutest girl in the world.”
Reaching out with one hand, Alvin-sama scooped up my long hair and combed it smoothly with his fingertips.
Each gesture of his felt as if he was telling me that he liked me.
“Hey, Nina. Can I hug you?”
“Of course, I won’t do anything more than that.”
I nodded my head, thinking that he usually didn’t ask that kind of thing, and I was also the one who was asking for his companion. Then, Alvin-sama smiled, “Thank you,” and closed the distance between us.
He quietly embraced me, and my heart jumped. Because of my thin nightgown, I could feel Alvin-sama’s warmth much more than usual.
I was surprisingly relieved by his hug, and I found myself saying thank you to him.
“…. For what?”
“I’ve been treated very well by Alvin-sama all this time.”
Alvin-sama always puts me first, thinks of me first, and takes action for me.
“Of course. I live for Nina.”
“I’m glad you feel that way, but please also do something for yourself….”
“Because I’m responsible for you.”
What exactly did that mean? Soon, Alvin-sama’s hand, which had been combing my hair, touched my cheek.
“And I can’t help it, I love you so much.”
“I will definitely make Nina happy in this world.”
There were many things I wanted to ask, but Alvin-sama’s gentle voice, warmth, and sweet scent made my eyelids heavy.
Gently stroking my head, Alvin-sama’s voice soon became distant.
“…. I’m sorry for falling in love with you.”
With those last words, I drifted off into a peaceful sleep.
