A Strange Situation


“Here. It’s your towel.” Mrs. Kim told me with an amused expression.

“Sorry about it, Mrs. Kim. I forgot to bring it with me.”

“Who does forget his towel when he is going to take a bath?” Mrs. Kim chuckled softly. “Well, you were always a bit of a klutz.”

I became slightly red in embarrassment.

Putting on the towel, I left the bathroom still embarrassed.

Mrs. Kim was seated on a sofa in the living room with a can of beer in her hand. She looked towards me with a smirk when I left the bathroom and beckoned towards me.

“Did something happen? You usually don’t take baths at this hour.”

“Well, I was practicing my new skill and messed up a bit,” I said trying to gloss out over the situation.

But right then, I noticed that Mrs. Kim was looking at me with a slightly confused expression.

“Mrs. Kim?”

“H-Huh? Oh, I was just thinking that you have become more handsome lately, Jane. Was it a result of your Awakening?”

I did not know how to reply to that question.

Feeling my awkwardness, Mrs. Kim laughed amusedly and shook her head.

“What, are you feeling embarrassed by my words? Hehe, just think of it as a mother-in-law evaluating her son-in-law.”

Right after Mrs. Kim said these words, both of our expressions became awkward.

“… Sorry, I forgot that Karime broke up with you.”

I forced out a smile.

“Don’t worry, I’m not bothered.”

Mrs. Kim shook her head before sighing.

“I don’t know what that girl is thinking. Sigh, why did she break up with such a great boy like you?”

“… I don’t think I want to talk about that.”

Mrs. Kim rolled her eyes.

“What is the problem? Even if I’m no longer your mother-in-law, I’m still like your mother. Come, sit here, we can have a mother-to-son conversation.” She said while patting the place beside her.

I felt so awkward that I did not know what to do.

God, how did I finish in this situation?

When Mrs. Kim noticed that I did not move, she rolled her eyes again and stood up, pulling me to the seat beside hers.

She then drank a bit of her beer before exhaling heavily.

“Sigh… relationships.”

At that moment, I noticed that there were a pair of empty beer cans on the sofa.

So Mrs. Kim is slightly drunk, huh. I immediately realized why she was behaving this way.

That explains why she is being so pushy tonight.

After taking another sip of beer, Mrs. Kim smiled softly and caressed my head.

“Don’t worry about Karime. You are a great boy, Jane. I’m sure that many girls dream of going out with you.”

“Thank you?” I replied awkwardly. How in the hell did I end having this kind of conversation with my ex’s mother?

“No need to thank me. I just hope that you don’t become depressed due to the break-up. It’s not worth it.”

I fell silent for a second before sighing.

Of course, I know that, but it’s not easy.

Although I hate to admit it, Karime occupies a special place in my heart. She was my girlfriend for a long time. I can’t help but feel a bit depressed now that she dumped me.

Mrs. Kim seemed to understand my feelings. She ruffled my hair gently before passing me her can of beer.

“… I don’t think I can drink alcohol yet, right?”

Mrs. Kim smirked. “Nobody will know if we don’t talk about it.”

I smiled wryly and nodded. Then, I took a sip of alcohol.

To be honest, I felt nothing after drinking alcohol for the first time. At most, I thought it was a bit bitter.

However, it felt strangely addictive. I could not help but take a second sip after taking the first.

Just then, Mrs. Kim took the can of beer from my hand.

“Two sips are enough. Your mother will kill me if you become drunk.”

“… I don’t think that I can become drunk just after drinking a bit, though.”

“Believe me, I have seen youngsters getting wasted with half a can of beer.” Mrs. Kim chuckled and continued drinking.

I don’t know if it was due to the alcohol, but I could not help but feel strangely relaxed after that. I even forgot about the embarrassment of talking to my ex’s mother about my breakup with her daughter.

Plus, Mrs. Kim was a great listener, so I felt refreshed after letting out my frustrations with her.

We continued like that for almost half an hour. By this point, Mrs. Kim had drunk two cans of beer further, and I had drunk a few sips further as well.

For some reason, my body started to feel hot, and my breathing became faster. At the same time, I felt that Mrs. Kim’s gaze became slightly heated.

At some point, her eyes were fixed on my naked chest.

Only at that moment did I remember that I was wearing only a towel.

Just then, I heard the voice of the demon in my head.

[Boy, this is a great opportunity to use the Soul Supplementation Art.]

‘Huh?’ I was startled. But then, I remembered what the Soul Supplementation Art was about.

My hazy mind immediately awakened, and I realized that the current situation was very bad.

Right now, Mrs. Kim’s body was leaning on me, and I could feel her body heat clearly. Moreover, her heated gaze on me made my body hot.

Even though I was a virgin boy, there was no way that I did not know where this was going.

I gulped down a mouthful of saliva and became nervous. Mrs. Kim was a very beautiful woman, and being with her in this situation almost made me lost control.

However, my reasoning still won. I knew that I could not do this. The consequences could be disastrous.

“What are you thinking about, Jane?” While I was lost in my thoughts, I felt Mrs. Kim’s breath on my face.

The slight smell of alcohol made me shiver, and I involuntarily gulped down another mouthful of saliva.

Extending my hands, I grabbed Mrs. Kim’s shoulders and pushed her away.

“Mrs. Kim, this is wrong,” I said.

Immediately, reasoning returned to Mrs. Kim’s eyes.

But when I was about to sigh in relief, the demon spoke in my mind again.

[Boy, how can you be so useless? Do I need to help you with this as well?]

Immediately, I felt a strange energy rushing through my veins.

My entire body became completely hot in that instant, and my mind became blurred.

And the same time, Mrs. Kim’s eyes became muddy as well.

In the next second, I had pushed Mrs. Kim’s body on the sofa.

Then, our lips were pushed against each other.
