The villainess that got pregnant with the crown prince’s child decided to run away – Chapter 50
Translator: Darling | Editor: Coming soon…
For a while, I continued gently embracing him. Slowly but surely it seemed like he was calming down. Then he suddenly pushed me away.
I slowly backed away from him without any resistance.
Just a little while ago, I was just holding him. It feels a little bit lonely now that he distanced himself away from me.
“Sorry about that. But thank you.”
“It’s all right. Rachel is fine, so please don’t worry.”
He still seemed a bit down, but he calmly nodded.
His eyes were looking straight at me.
“Is something the matter?”
“Nothing. It’s just that I’m a little curious, why is it that you know about Rachel…?”
I felt a strong thump in my chest in response to his words.
“With someone thinking about her as strongly as you are, there’s no way that she’s not all right.”
“…I see. I’m glad you’re here.”
He said. It was the first time that I’ve ever seen him smile since we’ve seen each other again. For some reason, it was a bit hard to look at his smile right now; but still, it’s better than the same cold expression he’s had since we’ve met. I felt a bit more relieved.
“Oh no, I didn’t do much.”
I wonder if he would believe me if I told him that I was Rachel.
Or would he just be completely at a loss if he knew who I was? Would he just be worried about what happened to my body or…?
“You’re sure a strange one. Even though I just met you, I feel a bit at ease for some reason. It’s almost as if I was with Rachel again.”
Oh, Lord Edward.
Maybe now would be the best time to let him know that I am Rachel.
“…Yeah, I know. We should be able to reach the border in just 2 days. Yes… I’ll be counting on you then.”
I had made up my mind to tell him the truth but… It seemed like he started to talk to someone else telepathically.
Great. What wonderful timing.
After that, Lord Edward continued to talk telepathically.
I completely lost my opportunity to tell him the truth.
“….?! Watch out!!”
I had sensed danger. But Lord Edward was too absorbed in his telepathic conversation and didn’t notice a thing. In a panic, I tried to cover him.
In the instant that we were on the ground, something had grazed my shoulder.
I felt a sharp pain in my left shoulder.
Lord Edward stands up and unsheathes his blade, readying to strike.
We were surrounded. There were 5 of them dressed in black.
I could feel a murderous urge from them.
Lord Edward stands in front of me as if to cover me.
I could still feel the sharp pain in my shoulder. Not just that, I could gradually feel my left hand numbing.
Is this… Poison?
