The villainess that got pregnant with the crown prince’s child decided to run away – Chapter 40
While dumbfounded and completely exhausted, I heard the cries of a baby from somewhere.
I desperately looked around my surroundings.
In doing so, I saw Marianne walking around while holding a baby that was just born.
I wonder if she’s heading towards Yuki’s house.
I quickly head over to where Marianne is.
“Marianne! Please return my baby to me, please.”
I caught up to Marianne, but she didn’t even look at my direction even once.
My child, however, looked at my direction and cried out “kyaa” and laughed.
His smile was innocent and cute; I couldn’t help but smile in response. In doing so, the baby started laughing as well.
“So cute. My darling little baby.”
Marianne cuddles the laughing infant and continues walking without keeping her sights off the road.
She continued walking, without looking at me or even noticing me.
Just as I thought, she can’t see me at all.
She walked for a while, and she finally arrived at Yuki’s house.
“Yuki, are you there?!”
Marianne shouted while standing by the entrance.
“Yeah, I’ll be there in a second.”
She responded after a short while. As soon as Yuki replied, I could also hear the sounds of a door being unlocked.
“Click, clack.” The door opened, and Yuki peeped through the door.
“I found someone who would share their milk with the child, I brought it here with me. Look, he’s so happy.””
Marianne enters the house while holding the lively little infant.
Since I’m not there, I’m not able to breastfeed the child. So that’s why she left with the child.
“I hope she regains consciousness soon…”
“It can’t be helped. It’s not completely uncommon for people to pass away when they give birth. It’s a miracle that she’s still alive, even if she’s unconscious.”
Marianne says while she lays down my child by my side.
I wonder if he recognizes who I am, the infant fell asleep cuddled up against me.
I want to hold my own child.
I want to feed my own child.
With those thoughts in mind, I tried reaching out for him, but as expected, it only just passes through him.
I tried reaching out for my body, but as I reach out for it, my hands were repelled back by some force. I couldn’t even return to my own body.
Kuro and Shiro came in while I was wondering what was going on, and suddenly I was enveloped by a bright light.
“Don’t worry. I’ll look over the child for you. Rachel, you need to find grasp your own path in life with your own hands by yourself.”
I heard a voice directly in my head. I couldn’t tell who it was or where it came from.
At that same moment, all I could see was a bright light.
Before I knew it, I was suddenly in the middle of the mountains.
