The villainess that got pregnant with the crown prince’s child decided to run away – Chapter 20

“Rachel, you’re truly adorable. I adore you. I love you.”

When night falls, I sleep with Lord Edward in our room. I fall asleep every day hearing those words from Lord Edward as he embraces me.

Is this also just an illusion?

Is the passionate gaze he bestows on me just a lie?

Are all those soft warm embraces he gave me are just fabrications to deceive me?

“Lord Edward….”

If only I could just ask him.

“Tell me the truth, deep down, do you actually hate me?” If only I could just ask him that…

But I’m scared that he will actually answer “yes,” so I can’t bring myself to ask him. I wish this moment would go on just for a little longer.

“Rachel? Is something wrong?”

He showers me with kisses against my cheeks. Is this just an act as well? Would he really just go this far to trick someone he hates?

“No… It’s nothing.”

“Really? Perhaps it’s because you’re pregnant and I feel a bit uneasy but… If there’s anything that’s on your mind, I want you to tell me.”


Deep down, do you actually hate me?

Is what I would like to ask him.

But the words just won’t come out of my mouth.

In silence, I feel the warmth from Lord Edward’s body, and I snuggled myself against him.

Lord Edward stroked my hair without saying a single word.

“Lord Edward. I apologize for bringing this up at this time, but there is something you need to know.”

As soon as I had dozed off in the comfort of Lord Edward’s warmth, I suddenly heard Alfred’s voice.

From the door, I could hear some hurried knocking sounds. It seemed like he was in a rush.

Did something happen, I wonder.

I felt a bit uneasy and I look at Lord Edward’s face.

I wonder what he was thinking, he didn’t even look at my direction.

“…Understood. I’ll head over there right now.”

“…Lord Edward.”

I reached out to him. But he didn’t respond to my call. He heads towards Alfred with a serious look on his face. And just like that, Lord Edward leaves with Alfred without looking back even once.

Even though he was embracing me so passionately just now, he leaves without even seeming reluctant about it.

Perhaps he does hate me after all.

In the end, Lord Edward didn’t come back for the rest of the day.
