Wu Yan felt a bit guilty since Lucca looked like she might cry.
Her puppy eyes should be banned in tournaments, it is so unfair.
She looks even more fragile than Kanon. Plus, her petite figure created an aura that made people want to protect her. Her soft aura is similar to Ikaros in this aspect.
No, she doesn't even need to fake being pitiful. Being around her made him feel guilty even though he did nothing wrong.
"Okay, fine, stop giving me that look."
Wu Yan acquiesced.
"I will drink it."
Lucca's mood suddenly got better. She turned her misty eyes on Wu Yan, those eyes made betraying her trust nigh impossible.
Wu Yan wavered but he just couldn't escape her gaze. He chugged down the steaming hot drink.
The sweet warm tea entered his mouth and slid down his throat.
The next instant, something akin to nectar exploded inside his stomach, he felt cool and energized all of a sudden.
Wu Yan mused out loud.
"I am glad Lord Rowan likes it."
Lucca beamed at him.
"It's a herbal tea. I made the paste myself. Although it isn't a famous tea, it is my own invention."
"Wow, I am amazed."
Wu Yan drank the tea again. The tea had sweet nectar within it that infected every corner of his body. This is more than just incredible, this drink shouldn't be possible.
"What is this tea?"
"Spiritual Herb tea."
"Elbaffs are good at making medicines and potions. However, different production methods and materials can lead to different concoctions. We call the tea that can improve the body Spiritual Herb tea."
"Ah, I see, it's good for the body."
Wu Yan continued.
"Wait, then this must be expensive, no?"
"I made the paste myself so I don't know how much I would sell it for..."
Lucca then said something he couldn't ignore.
"The materials should be worth at least 30,000 Akrones though."
Wu Yan gasped.
That is about as much money as what Wu Yan threw at Ash today.
That is just the material cost. Given her expertise, the labor cost should have been hefty as well.
He didn't know he was drinking tea worth its weight in gold.
"My, I didn't think you would bring out something like this. Hey, if it's good for the body, I don't mind drinking this."
Wu Yan bitterly laughed.
"Right, what is the tea good for again?"
Lucca looked like she is trying to hide something.
Lucca is behaving extremely strange today.
"E-Erm, we should probably hit the sack soon..."
Lucca frantically stood up.
"It's deep in the night now..."
Wu Yan also stood up.
He looked around.
"Lucca, where is my bed?"
Lucca pointed at the coffin with white flowers in it matter-of-factly.
Wu Yan questioned.
"Don't tell me, you want me to sleep in that coffin?"
"It's not a coffin."
Lucca reminded him.
"It is an Elbaff bed that can serve as convenient furniture if someone dies."
"Okay, you want me to sleep in that 'convenient furniture'?"
"I've slept on soft and rough beds before. I slept on floors and sofas, this has got to be the first time I am sleeping in a coffin."
Wu Yan retorted.
"I thought I would never get the chance, guess you should never tempt fate."
Lucca lowered her head.
"You don't like my bed?"
"I don't know if I like it or not..."
Wu Yan scratched his cheek.
"But, if I sleep in this thing, where will you sleep?"
Lucca blinked in shock.
"I thought we are sharing the bed together?"
Wu Yan smiled.
He knew he would lose if he argued so he just gave up.
"Okay, have it your way."
Wu Yan sighed.
"Let's go to bed."
Lucca brightened up.
Then, Lucca did something that Wu Yan almost couldn't believe.
She pulled the straps of her nightgown to the sides, her nightgown slid down to the floor, leaving her in her birthday suit, he could see everything.
Wu Yan froze up.
"Wh-Why did you undress?"
"It's cold at night."
Lucca answered matter-of-factly once more.
"I must use my body to warm Lord Rowan up."
"No no no, you're going to make me a criminal!"
Wu Yan wanted to slam his head into a wall.
"Aren't you afraid that I might eat you up?"
Lucca tilted her head. Then, she connected the dot as her face steamed up.
"W-We can do that thing but after doing that we have to go to the Elbaff village. I need to introduce you to my adoptive father."
"Meet your parents?"
Wu Yan couldn't calm down.
Is she saying that I need to take responsibility after doing the hippity-hoppity in her coochie?
A shotgun marriage?!
His head started hurting.
He is going to stay here for another month, this is going to be gruesome torture for him.
Wu Yan felt something amiss.
His blood started churning. He is heating up at the extremities and even his mouth felt dry. Also, his carnal flames burned without him doing anything.
Wu Yan gasped when he realized what just happened to him.
"You spiked the tea?!"
Lucca shook her head vigorously. Wu Yan isn't buying her story.
"Why am I burning up then?"
Lucca averted her gaze.
"The Spiritual Herb tea's effect."
Wu Yan had a bad feeling.
"What's the effect?"
Lucca fessed up like a kid who did something bad.
"It increases your energy and libido..."
With her porcelain white lithe body in front of him, the carnal flames gnawed away at his consciousness until he blacked out.
