My Wish Is Two Separate Beds - Chapter 22
The blanket, which had been blocking Julia from Endimion, was pushed aside. Their two bodies became so close that their sights were tangled, and Endimion narrowed his eyes and slowly lowered his face back into her wrist and opened his mouth.
“So, my Que-”
It was because of the clear voice that sounded just before their soft skins touched. Julia, who cut him off by a hair’s breadth, got up. Then she smiled brightly, and shouted clearly once again to him, who met her eyes.
“I just remembered. I want a new hunting suit!”
“Yeah. Something as strong as yours, not thin like before!”
“What is it? You can’t?”
When Julia asked again, Endimion nodded reflexively.
Then he watched Julia, who was smiling, with complicated eyes before finally smiled as well.
The previous strange atmosphere was washed away. The couple’s conversation naturally shifted to the topic of tomorrow.
“Wow, Duke Tristan is already that old? What if he overdoes it tomorrow?”
“He insisted on coming even when he didn’t have to. The old man is stubborn.”
“Mion, you can’t say about an elder.”
As usual, the couple, lying side by side, covered in a blanket, talked to each other, and said good-night to each other before extinguishing the fire as the night fell. Soon a quiet silence enveloped the bedroom.

A few hours later-
The room was quiet with the moonlight shining through the window
From time to time, one could only hear the sound of a blanket shifting on the couple’s bed. Endimion, who fell asleep with even breathes turned in his sleep.
Because of this, the blanket was dragged with a roar, revealing a bit of Julia’s body, which had been covered. The bottom of the shirt was rolled up and the air reached her bare legs.
At the same time, Julia, who opened her eyes, hurriedly checked to see if Endimion had fallen asleep. She saw him sleeping, and just when she was about to make a sigh of relief she quickly turned to the other side.
‘Ah, what do I do…!’
My face turned red. My heart, which had been calm all my life, was about to explode from jumping like crazy. My earlobes, the inside of my wrists, and even the thighs touched by his shirt were itchy and hot.
– My crown, my throne…….even my body.
– I’ll give you anything.
Like an echo, Endimion’s languid voice didn’t leave my mind.
I was so surprised earlier that I pretended I didn’t know anything. But the truth is, from then on, Julia’s head was in a great panic.
‘Wha, what’s wrong with this person all of a sudden? Does he know what it sounds like? I’m the only one who’s hearing it this way, right?’
I couldn’t sleep because of my speculations that didn’t seem to subside. Julia touched her burning face and eventually stayed up all night.
‘….I’ll have to use the second method.’
She didn’t know what her husband, who had his back against hers, was thinking.
“Please raise your head a little. Yes, like that.”
Julia is busy getting massaged and preparing early in the morning at the hands of her fussy maids.
Five people clinging together, changing her clothes and getting her hair done for hours resulted in Julia looking as if she was dressed for a ball.
Julia sat in a queenly position and got ready, but her eyes slowly closed without her knowing.
“My Queen, did you happen to stay up late last night?”
The exclusive maid, known for her golden hands, asked softly while applying makeup. As Julia looked at her eyes, the veteran maid whispered with a smile.
“It’s a little dark under your eyes. The fact that your highnesses have a great relationship in the bedroom, but you need a good night’s sleep to be dressed up to perfection.”
“I, I don’t know what you’re talking about. I just felt uncomfortable because my bed changed.”
It’s not like that! Julia quickly denied the misunderstanding, but the maidens laughed amongst themselves out of joy.
“You can’t do this during the coming-of-age celebration. Of course, you’re beautiful without having anything done, but you’ll be even more breathtaking with styling as your wings. Do you understand me?”
