The villainess that got pregnant with the crown prince’s child decided to run away – Chapter 16

Translator: Darling | Editor: Walker

Lord Edward came to my room with his usual smile. It’s a gentle smile that would make anyone feel at ease.

“Lord Edward, I’m fine.”

“I see, I’m glad.”

Lord Edward gently smiles as he brushes through my long hair with his hands. Even though he has the same gentle smile as he usually does, I still can’t help but have some doubts. Lord Edward looks at me with a bit of worry, I wonder if he noticed that I stiffened up a bit.

I slowly shook my head as if to say “It’s nothing.”

“Well then, Ms. Rachel. I will be excusing myself.”

Makoto announces, seeing as Lord Edward was in the room.

It was then that Lord Edward noticed that Makoto was in the same room as well and he threw a quick glance towards Makoto.

“Ah, Makoto. Thanks for that interesting conversation from earlier.”

“Oh, it was nothing…”

Lord Edward says while smiling. I wonder what they were talking about. I’m sure it was all focused on what Yuki was blurting out earlier.

Compared to just earlier, the expression on Makoto’s face seemed a bit stiff.

“Please excuse me.”

“Ahh… “

I unconsciously blurt out as Makoto bid his farewells. I was going to tell her to wait but, realized that Lord Edward was right beside me, so I decided against it. There’s still a lot of things I want to ask Makoto. As well as Yuki. But, I’m reluctant to talk to them in front of Lord Edward.

I wanted to ask them about the dreams that I’m seeing where Lord Edward looks at me with such cold eyes… 

…I can’t ask them about that in front of Lord Edward.

Makoto will be working in the royal palace for a while, so I’m sure there will be another chance to talk with her. So I resigned myself with that thought.

“Ray? Is there something on your mind?”

“No, nothing at all. By the way… What did you talk with Makoto and Yuki?

I directly asked.

It would be nice if he told me the truth but…

“I asked them about the world that they lived in. It was a pretty interesting conversation you know.”

“Oh my, I want to hear about that too. What kind of world is it?”

I wonder if Yuki talked about the game or whatever. I wonder if she talked about Lord Edward that was inside the game.

“Let’s have them tell us more in detail next time. But for now, you should get some rest. You’re not feeling too well, right?”

“No, not at all. I’m feeling fine.”

“Really? There’s a bit of a wrinkle by your brows, you know? It’s not good to push yourself.

Lord Edward gently touches my cheek, presumably by where the wrinkle is and softly caresses it. Maybe he really was just worried about me and just told me that we’ll talk about it on a later date. But I feel like he’s avoiding the topic. Was it something that would be bad for me to hear? Or was it because Lord Edward was really trying to take me down and he can’t say that in front of me?

“There’s nothing for you to worry about. Just have a nice rest.”

Lord Edward lays me on the bed with his hands, and he gently caresses my head. Before I knew it, I fell asleep to the pleasant feelings of his hands brushing against my head.
