about an hour.

“Oh, sorry to keep you waiting.”

Douglas-san came back with his usual expression.
And behind him was the haggard Gail-san who looked as if all the life had been sucked out of him.

Just what …… what happened in the tent next to me?

When I glanced on my side, Glenn seemed to be thinking the same thing.

“[The discussion] ended safely.
Chika, it’s now my turn, and we’re going to sleep together!”

Without waiting for my reply, Douglas-san quickly carried me up and took me to the next tent.
I glanced at the two of them, but they averted their gaze.

T/N: Chika glanced at Glenn and Gail.

“That darned Gail stealing a march from me.
Even I want to ‘mumble mumble mumble’ with Chika…”

Douglas-san is venting his frustration with great intensity.
It’s not that I meant to, but I guess I was relying on Gail-san a little too much.

“I’m sorry if I made you feel bad, Douglas-san.
I’ll be careful in the future, so please don’t blame Gail-san too much.”

“Oh, no, no, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to make you feel uncomfortable too, Chika.
It’s just, I’m aware of my own jealousy, so I was a bit angry.
Anyway, will you take a look at my beast form?”

“Yes, of course.
And I’m sorry, I didn’t realize that I was making you feel bad.”

“Don’t be so quick to blame yourself, we did it on our own.”

When he said that, Douglas-san stripped naked and winked at me.
Just like the others, his body glowed for a moment, then twisted and the light disappeared.

What appeared was a golden lion with a splendid mane.

How could I describe it?

The size, the mane, the big ears, the face, the limbs, all of it gave me a sense of the magnificence of a lion, the pinnacle of predators.

It was not that I’m afraid, but I was overwhelmed by his power.

“What’s wrong? Are you okay, Chika?”

His usual baritone voice sounded even more austere, and I felt as if my ears were being raped.

“I’m fine, I was just a little surprised at how dignified and powerful you are.”

Mr.
Douglas flicked his tongue out and licked his lips, then slowly approached me.

“Well, even though I’m rotten, I’m still a member of the lion race royalty.
So I have to maintain a certain amount of dignity.
Lions are predators, after all.
And my prey is you, Chika.”

He said that and licked his lips again.

The expression on his face was light, but the tone of his voice and his whole body was that of a predator.

I sat down on the ground with a sigh.

I did that and Douglas-san leaned in close to me.

“Hahaha, sorry, did I scare you a little too much? I can’t help but feel that my lion instincts are getting stronger in this body.
Seems that I can’t endure it in front of my lovely prey that I let out all sorts of things.”

The aura of a predator seemed to have weakened as Douglas licked my neck and face while saying this.

This much is okay.

I leaned in close to Douglas and stroked his mane, face, and ears, and kissed his face.

“I understand a little bit what it’s like to be preyed upon by a predator.
But I wouldn’t mind being eaten by you, Douglas-san.
I’d be happy to be eaten by someone I love.”

“Ugh… Chika, don’t stir things up too much! I didn’t plan to embrace you on this trip.
I have to desperately try to hold back.”

“I’ve been threatened a bit, so I just returning the favor.”

“You’ll regret this when we reach the Capital.
Bad children need to be punished, and my punishments are so severe.
I won’t stop even if you cry.”

Douglas-san also gave me a light kiss on the cheek.

“So, should we go to bed now?”

“You’re right.
Um, don’t we need to call Gail-san and the others?”

“Today, that guy and Glenn will be sleeping in the other tent, so it’s okay.”

I’m sure that was also forcibly decided in the ‘discussion’.

“Umm, Douglas-san, are you going to rest like this?”

“Yeah, Glenn told me you were a little cold.
I think my fur isn’t too bad.

Then, Douglas-san laid down and made room for me between his stomach and chest, just like Glenn-san had done.

I wrapped myself in a blanket and settled in there.

Douglas-san’s body bends tightly, and one arm wraps around me.

The softness of the fur and the warmth of his body are very comfortable.

“Hey Chika, are you in pain?”

“I’m a little too happy to be in agony, but I’m fine.”

“Well, that’s good, but we’re going to be on a hard march tomorrow, so make sure you rest properly.”

I was so happy to sleep wrapped in fluff.
And that fluff was my beloved.

I wondered if there was any other happiness like this.
I’m sure that this is how I would be sleeping with Gail-san tomorrow.
I’m really looking forward to it.

“Good night, Douglas-san.”

“Good night, Chika.
Have a good rest.”
