The villainess that got pregnant with the crown prince’s child decided to run away – Chapter 55
Makoto’s eyes were wide open. For a while she had stopped moving, almost as if time had frozen.
“…Where… Did you learn about that?”
She muttered. Her voice was a bit cracked.
But I feel like if I were to tell her the truth right now, she wouldn’t believe me.
“That’s a secret.”
I said with a smile on my face. Makoto, astonished, was just blinking. It was quiet, and Makoto shook her head left and right. Almost to the point where I could even hear the noise of her head shaking.
After a while, she regained her composure and looked at me with a serious expression.
“You are kind of similar to someone I know. That’s probably why Lord Edward trusts you. However, you are not well-suited for him.”
“I see. That’s unfortunate. And? May I be excused already?”
“Not yet. There are still a few suspicious things about you. Until I find out everything, you’re going to have to stay here.”
She was so surprised earlier; I wonder where all that went?
Makoto had said that in a very serious tone. It seems like she’s very suspicious of me.
“Could you tell me your name?”
As I answered, Mr. Pukey Pukey #18 started blinking red.
Even though it hasn’t reacted to anything I have said before.
“Please tell me your name.”
“I told you, it’s Ray.”
And again, Mr. Pukey Pukey # 18 started blinking. What does this mean?
Makoto looked at me far more intensely than before.
“Please tell me your real name.”
Makoto again asked for my name. I wonder if it’s blinking red because it detected a lie.
But saying that my name is Ray isn’t exactly a lie though.
I decided to just say my real name.
But even then, Mr. Pukey Pukey #18 kept flashing.
“Please stop joking around. Where did you hear that name?”
Her eyes sharpened.
What does this mean? I mean, I am Rachel after all.
Even though I am Rachel… Why… Just why is it saying that I’m lying?
“I am Rachel. Are you sure that tool isn’t broken?”
Even though I am Rachel. Even though I’m no one else but Rachel.
Just why is Mr. Pukey Pukey #18 blinking red?
“…sigh. This is getting us nowhere. Let me change the question. Where are you from?”
As I answered, Mr. Pukey Pukey blinks red again.
What does this mean…?
“So, you’re going to lie even about where you’re from? You’re from Yakumo aren’t you?”
“I am not.”
I answered. But yet again, Mr. Pukey Pukey #18 flashes a red light.
“Mr. Pukey Pukey #18 doesn’t lie. You’re from Yakumo. Even if you try to hide that fact, it will see through it. Please accept it already.”
“It’s true though. I was born here, and my name is Rachel. Even though I am Rachel… Just… Why…?”
