The villainess that got pregnant with the crown prince’s child decided to run away – Chapter 23
Translator: Darling | Editor: Coming soon…
“You’re going to stay here…?”
I nervously asked.
Why is she staying?
Weren’t we all going to run away together?
I had nothing but questions on my mind.
“Yeah. I have some things I need to do here since I can make magical tools after all.” Makoto said with a smile on her face.
“…Things you need to do? Like what?”
What is exactly Makoto planning on doing? Exactly what does she need to do? Is she planning on being my replacement? But if I’m not mistaken, she wasn’t supposed to be able to get married to Lord Edward. Though I don’t exactly remember why that was.
“It’s a secret.”
Makoto smiles without telling me anything about what she was planning on doing.
“What I can tell you is that it’s a highly confidential task that was entrusted to me by Lord Edward. So, I’m sorry, I cannot tell you.”
Makoto says with eyes full of determination. I’m sure that she won’t tell me any more than what she already told me. I’m sure no matter what I asked, she would just ignore it with a smile on her face. Or at least, that’s the impression I’m getting.
“I see, Lord Edward sure trusts you huh. Is there anything I can help you with?”
Did Lord Edward fall in love with Makoto?
Just like in that dream, is he thinking of replacing me with her?
“The only thing you can do is… Safely run away from here and live a long life.”
So being here is… I can’t be here by Lord Edward’s side?
The words that Makoto had said to me hurt me a lot more than I thought it would. I did think about running away from Lord Edward but… To say that the only thing I can do is to just run away from Lord Edward means…
That the one that Lord Edward needs is Makoto. I’m someone that’s completely unnecessary for him. Or so that’s what I felt like she was telling me.
“Rachel, please run away. You’re our last hope.”
