You reached a hand out to stop him, but his sharp look met yours and so you retracted your hand and let him check your legs over.
As was your practice, you had no undergarments on- this was on purpose, specifically because your main role was to service the King, so no undergarments was the rule. So while he looked you over, you were on display for him.
You hadn’t ment for his touch to arouse you but it did, and your cock started to swell as blood coursed it’s way through your veins.
You whispered out an apology, but King Kagayama apparently did not hear it… or maybe he did and ignored it?
His thumb glossed over a graze on your right knee and you winced noticeably.
“That is painful?” he asked you.
“Well, it did just happen today…” you replied.
He grunted and checked your other leg.
“It appears you only sustained bruises on your right side,” he commented.
“I do have one particularly large one on my left hip but it will resolve quickly,” you said.
“Let me see,” he said, pushing the hem of your garment up more so he could expose your hip.
It was indeed a large bruise, covering your hip bone and down a portion of your leg, which must have surprised him as he made a sound when he saw the size.
“I am fine,” you replied to his unpleased sound.
“I am irate at those who dared to do this,” he growled with sudden anger.
“I asked you to leave it with me,” you replied quite sternly… you hadn’t ment for it to come out so harsh.
“What do you intend to do?” he asked pointedly, still with scowl.
You gave him an ‘excuse me?!’ offended type look and he quickly backed down.
“I… you will let me know if anything else happens,” he said, avoiding eye contact as he looked off to the side.
“Yes,” you said, still a little indignant by the way he had spoken to you just before.
He nodded and his hand slipped up your thigh a little, fingertips brushing along the joint of your hip, moving towards your pelvic bone.
Your cock, that had been semi hard, hardened further and you stayed completely still wondering what his next move was going to be.
He instructed you to lay back and you did, alternatively watching his face and his hands to work out of he was going to initiate some intimacy or not.
He seemed to be hesitating.
Slowly his hand inched towards your cock, playing around the base and cupping your balls and your shaft twitched with each delicious stroke of contact but something didn’t seem right.
Usually, he would have taken you by now but he definitely appeared to be holding back, and after a short time of unintentionally teasing you, he sat back and pulled your garments down and dismissed you.
Confused, you got off the bed and made your way to the door.
Subtly, you looked back at him as you exited the room and he was still kneeling on the bed but with his head in his hands.
You almost wanted to go back and ask if he was ok… but you knew better than to do that, and so left with a heavy heart.
It hurt that he had turned you away so coldly after being warmer than usual and Hinata could see the look on your face as you exited.
“Is… everything alright?” he asked nervously, wondering if the sadness in your eye was on his behalf.
“I don’t know,” you replied honestly.
“Is it about me?” he asked worriedly.
You shook your head.
“No, Hinata, I don’t think it involves you at all…”
He didn’t want to pry so he just nodded and walked you back to your room instead.
Back in his room King Kageyama was in inner turmoil. He liked you… a LOT. And he wanted you to like him too but what you had said to him about what others had said about him seemed to have struck a chord and it just kept coming back up in his mind.
He wasn’t usually the type to care what others thought, but for some reason this did matter to him this time and he wanted to know what to do to change it.
He got off his bed in a huff and stormed back and forth a few times before calling out loudly.
“Hinata! Come!” he hollered at the door.
Poor Hinata nearly shat himself at the tone in the King’s voice- as he was still stressing over the incident with you and the other women and thought he was being called in for that.
“Y-Yes, My King!” he called as he entered and dropped down on hands and knees.
“Close the door,” Kagayama then said, gesturing to the door behind the orangette.
The lithe assistant quickly obeyed then dropped down on bended knee again.
“Hinata… do you like me?” King Kagayama asked suddenly.
This threw Hinata and the orangette looked up momentarily in confusion, but then quickly looked back down again.
“Yes?” he replied.
“Why do you answer with a question?” King Kagayama huffed, “are you unsure of your answer?”
“No, no, I am sure. I am sure that I like you… as a King… what I am unsure of is, what has bought this question forth?” Hinata asked with slight bewilderment.
“I… I have heard what has been said about me,” King Kageyama said stiffly, “and… I want to know how to change.”
“Change? My King?” Hinata asked, still wondering how to answer these questions.
“Yes!” King Kagayama snapped, “you dolt. Listen to me when I am speaking.” Then, realizing his harsh speech, he took a deep breath in and the exhaled loudly and let his face fall neutral. “I would also like to know how to… treat my concubine well.”
Hinata’s face lit up and he grinned at the king then immediately dropped his gaze again.
“I am not one to speak on behalf of your concubine, my King, but if you asked her what she likes then I am sure she would be gracious in revealing her preferences,” he said knowingly, overjoyed that the King was at least trying to do things that would make you like him more.
“I see,” King Kageyama replied thoughtfully, rubbing his chin with his hand, “you have my leave to go, Hinata…. Th…Thank… you.”
Hinata nearly passed out.
“King Kagayama thanking me?! Granted, it sounded like he was regurgitating knives when he said it, as it sounded so painful for him to say, but it’s a step in the right direction!”
