Can't Come Back - Chapter 60
* * *
The leaders in charge of this war had convened. Cain took his place among them.
“Why have we been summoned to an emergency meeting this early morning? Is there a pressing issue?”
One nobleman asked Cain. They were intrigued as to why, following his return after being ambushed and injured, Duke Hildayden summoned them.
“I’ve discovered a way to attack from behind.”
Cain began speaking, and everyone exclaimed in surprise when they heard his words.
“What did you say?”
“Is that true?”
“It is true.”
Cain boldly nodded.

Notium eventually won the war that raged along the border between Talisbon and Notium. This was because they could ambush Talisbon’s stronghold via the passage Cain discovered in the cave.
The Kingdom of Talisbon admitted defeat and retreated. Talisbon was the catalyst for the war in the first place, and continuing would endanger the Kingdom of Talisbon itself. As a result of the battle, Talisbon was forced to cede a part of its territory to Notium.
“Long live the Emperor!”
“Celebrate the victory!!”
The atmosphere in the Notium Empire was triumphant. Flowers were placed around the streets to commemorate the return of the aristocrats and soldiers who had fought, and the entire capital was alive with orchestral music all day.
Berlia and Cain arrived safely at their mansion. Many things had happened between them since the first time they met till now, but a return to everyday daily life was on the horizon.
One difference was that now, just Cain and Berlia remained in the mansion. Dean and Riley had left, leaving only the two of them.
However, regardless of how attached they were, the connection between Cain and Berlia remained opaque to others—the new Duke Hildayden and his brother’s wife.
Both were single, yet some would see their relationship as an affair. This was distinct from their decision to be open about their relationship and disregard other people’s judgments because they legally belonged to the same family, which meant they could never be married.
Berlia would have to give up her surname, ‘Hildayden,’ to marry Cain or do anything else. Cain and Berlia were relatives under the law; thus, they could never officially marry.
What if Berlia dropped the ‘Hildayden’ name and returned to Kinderton?
‘But, if I marry Cain after that, wouldn’t I take on the Hildayden name again? And become the Duchess of Hildayden once more…’
Berlia walked inside Cain’s chamber, pondering the irony of resuming a surname she had previously abandoned.
Knock, knock, knock-
Berlia knocked on Cain’s door like she always did. Cain’s face was shown when the door softly opened. He spoke out softly to his darling.
Cain encircled her waist with his arm.
“Cain, I have something to say… Ah, ugh…”
Then he drew Berlia into the room and kissed her right away. Their tongues connected as the door slammed shut with a crash. Cain’s velvety tongue slipped inside Berlia’s mouth, carefully exploring her mouth.
Her lips curved into a gentle moan. Cain’s kiss melted Berlia’s body, and he naturally led her to his bed.
They landed on the bed. A kiss already stimulated Berlia’s lower half. Her underwear was already dripping wet. Cain gently scratched the tip of Berlia’s swollen breast.
He gradually undressed her. When exposed to the air, her bare skin shook with goosebumps. Her nipples grew more prominent. Cain pressed his tongue across her swollen breast.
Cain’s hand reached under her skirt and touched the most private part of her body. Cain whispered into her ear, feeling her moist underpants,
“You’re as naughty as ever, Berlia. Just having your breasts licked gets you wet.”
She was in serious difficulty. The liquid from below would saturate her underpants and spill outside at this rate. Berlia massaged her thighs against each other.
Cain removed her underpants completely. It was wet and tinged with excitement. Cain stroked Berlia’s clitoris slowly, throwing her underwear outside the bed.
She felt a tingling sensation inside every time he moved. She wished for him to stop taunting her and for his penis to fill her void.
“Cain… please hurry…”
Berlia begged Cain to listen to her. There was no need for any further foreplay. She desired his erection to penetrate her.
Cain’s penis was already erect and heated as he approached Berlia. She extended her legs softly to invite him.
Cain accepted her request without hesitation and slowly inserted his penis. Her vagina wrapped around him. Cain was dizzy; every time he entered her, he felt inebriated. Her warm and snug insides wrapped around his entire body, not just his penis.
“Huff, huff, ah!”
With both hands on the bed, Cain’s movements made it rattled. They moved in unison, rhythmically.
Cain leaned forward and hugged Berlia. He sucked on her pale shoulder, creating an imprint lasting for days. This was proof that she was his.
Cain cocked his head and pressed his face against Berlia’s ear. He licked her earlobe gently.
“Ah…! Ha, ahh!”
Despite having experienced it multiple times, she couldn’t get used to the unusual yet soothing sensation. It made her body feel weak in an instant. Berlia felt helpless in every way.
Her body swayed to Cain’s movements, limp as a toy whose spring had been wound down. Cain’s tongue didn’t stop moving. Berlia was unsure where to focus because she could feel him elsewhere while simultaneously feeling his tongue caressing her ear. All she wanted was for this blissful moment to stay a little longer.
Berlia whimpered, reaching out and gripping Cain’s back tightly. Berlia’s hands slid several times owing to her weakened position, but she did her best to hang on to him.
“Do you know, Berlia?”
“How much… you drive me crazy.”
How can his voice be that flawless? Berlia felt like she was going to burst. Did Cain have the same experience?
“Even now, as I hold you like this… sometimes… I can’t… believe… you’re my woman.”
Cain was in the same condition. The heat from his body concentrated on the point where they were linked. Berlia had always been like this. And she would remain the only woman who could arouse Cain to such an extent in the future.
“Ah, huh! Cain, Cain… I think I’ll…”
Berlia gave forth increasingly impassioned moans with each stroke. The tingling sensation inside her was becoming more assertive. It was getting close to the top. Berlia clung to him with all the power she had.
“I’m also close… Berlia… Ah, hah!”
It wasn’t just her who had reached her limit. Berlia’s muscles clenched, bringing them even closer together. As he pushed more profoundly, he touched her inner boundaries.
Berlia shook. Cain came to a halt. She was filled with a warm liquid. Cain gradually withdrew from her after his lust. Some of his semen dripped down Berlia’s thigh as he did so.
Cain let out a big sigh, savoring the moment. He knelt, kissed Berlia on the cheek, and hugged her nude body close.
Berlia could feel Cain’s warmth. She closed her eyes gently, drowsy. Could there be a happier time after making love, lying on the bed, and hugging each other without reservation? She felt like she could fall asleep right now.
Berlia thought their current situation wasn’t too horrible, even though they had a secret relationship they couldn’t share with others because nothing was different.
Let’s discuss dropping the Hildayden name later.
She may be unable to marry Cain, now a duke, but won’t they remain together forever? That was sufficient for Berlia.
“What are you thinking about?”
“I’m just glad we can return to normal lives like this.”
Berlia was in a difficult situation now, being addressed as the Duchess. Furthermore, it was evident that there would be much discussion about Cain, who had become a duke, not marrying a duchess. Berlia, on the other hand, was unconcerned. Things have changed since then. Berlia was confident in her ability to overcome all of this.
“I love you, Berlia.”
“I love you, too, Cain.”
“Please be with me forever.”
Cain feels the same way.
It was a blessing to have a cherished spouse who shared her emotions.
“Then, Vera, you can look forward to tomorrow.”
While Berlia was content for the time, Cain’s subsequent statements perplexed her.
His eyes crinkled as he smiled cheerfully.
“You’ll find out tomorrow.”
Cain had nothing else to say. There was something there, but Cain did not expand for some reason.
‘Tomorrow…? What will happen tomorrow…?’
Berlia suddenly remembered a ceremony at the royal palace commemorating people who had distinguished themselves throughout the war. Cain was to be honored by the Emperor at that event for his achievements. Was there anything else? She should have known if there was anything remarkable…
Berlia, on the other hand, couldn’t think any further. Sleepiness surrounded her as a result of her exhaustion. Cain’s embrace lulled her to sleep.
