It was warm, and it carried a light fragrance. It felt a bit ticklish but also a bit arousing. It was like a foxtail that kept tickling his sleepy mind, rousing him from his rest.
The moment he opened his eyes, he found himself face-to-face with a beautiful little princess.
Charlotte was currently lying right beside him, on the same bed. Her silky auburn hair was scattered over the pillows. Even under the faint light, her fair skin still looked impeccable. Her noble aura paired with her white sleepwear left Roel with an illusion that he was staring right at the real Sleeping Beauty.
W-what is she doing here?
Startled fully awake, Roel’s mind jammed up for a few seconds at the sight of his bed companion. Of course, this wasn’t the first time Roel was sleeping with a girl, but the other person had always been Alicia, his younger sister. Rather than saying that they were ‘sleeping together’, it was more accurate to say that he was accompanying a child to bed. However, that was clearly not the case with Charlotte.

“Is Mister Roel peeping on me in my sleep?”
“O-of course not. I just woke up not too long ago too…”
Caught red-handed, Roel hurriedly tried to explain himself awkwardly. Fortunately, Charlotte didn’t continue pursuing the matter. While Roel’s voice was still trailing away out of embarrassment, she levered herself gracefully upward before pecking his forehead lightly.
