Chapter 1 -up shut your ass


Jimin squealed in surprise when a pair of muscular arms lifts him up, one around his waist and the other around his tail.

He peers up at the other through his eyelashes, gazing into smouldering obesidian eyes.

“What are you doing here? Aren’t you supposed to be having class?”

“Can’t I pick my baby up after his lessons?”

Jimin flushed at the endearment, his fingers making tiny fists as he crosses his arms behind Jeongguk’s neck.

“Well…. you can. But you shouldn’t! Don’t jeopardize your studies!”

“Sure thing sweetheart. I’ll do as you say. For now, what’s done is done. ”

Without another word, Jeongguk speeds off with Jimin in his arms, swimming back to the royal palace.

Dodging through shoals of fish and pretty coral reefs, they finally caught a glimpse of the magnificent structure. The royal palace was actually coral reef but grew into the shape of a castle.

Seeing Jeongguk arriving, the guards opened the white pearly gates for them, the prince immediately rushing into his room.

Slamming the door shut, Jeongguk opens his clam and throws Jimin in gently, before closing it behind himself.

“Jeonggukie, we shouldn’t be doing this. I need to help out in the kitchen.”

“Shhh, it’s fine. I’ll send some servants over to help instead. Just keep me company.”

“Okay then…… what do you want to do? ”


“Okay, let’s get rea- wait what?!”
Jimin all but screeches in embarrassment, burrowing under the soft kelp blanket.

Jeongguk smirks cockily, and dives in with Jimin. When he faces Jimin, he takes up a more serious look on his face.

“I’m serious. Mating season is just around the corner. I’m sick of seeing all those whiny little mermen swimming after you.”

“But Jeonggukie, you’re a prince and I’m the son of the baker. You should be settling for someone of your status. Like Princess Seulgi in your class or Princess Jihyo of the Meridian Academy. They are all so pretty and polite and…..”

Jimin’s rambling came to a stop as he catches the disapproving look on Jeongguk’s face.

“Is that what you think of yourself, Jiminie? You’re more gorgeous than any of them! And if you don’t want to mate with me, I’ll just grow old and die alone. ”

Jeongguk purse his lips in disappointment and Jimin pecks him on the cheek in apology.

“I’m sorry, Jeonggukie. But plans have already been made and it is not in my place to tell you.”

Jimin pats Jeongguk’s fluffy hair and backs out of the clam before the prince could open his mouth.

“What…? Plans?”

Jimin sighed as he closes the door behind him. He doesnt want to lie; he likes Jeongguk a lot. Like a lot. But it was impossible between them. Not really because of their social status but also because of his extremely dangerous feelings.
