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?”

“It’s Ray.”

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.

“It’s Rachel.”

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?”

“Hazrat”

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…?”
