The villainess that got pregnant with the crown prince’s child decided to run away – Chapter 8
Translator: Darling | Editor: Walker
“You know, that main hero, that crown prince Edward… He’s pretty handsome, but… I just can’t bring myself to like him.”
“He’s the kind of person who would do anything to achieve his goals. No matter what the cost is. If it’s for his goals, he would easily dispose of anyone or anything. If he were in our reality, I’d rather stay away from him.”
As I closed my eyes while drinking the rosehip tea that Sally poured, I heard that voice suddenly. It’s a rather familiar voice. But, I can’t exactly remember whose voice it was. Either way, to say that Lord Edward is the kind of person who would do anything to achieve his goals… What does that mean?”
In front of me, he has always been that kind and sweet Lord Edward. Does that mean that I don’t know Lord Edward’s true nature? Still… I’ve been by Lord Edward’s side for 13 years, and I have never thought of him as someone like that.
But let’s suppose that it’s true that Lord Edward is the kind of person who would do anything to achieve his goals.
Assuming that I do end up being a hindrance by tormenting Ms. Makoto.
I might be killed. Along with the child in my stomach.
If Ms. Makoto and Lord Edward ended up loving each other… It might be for the best for me to run away from here. As a noble, it is absolutely shameful to run away, but it’s probably better to throw away ideas such as “shame” and run away rather than let this child be killed.
Distressed, I kept having these kinds of thoughts.
“Ray, how are you feeling? I heard from Makoto that when you two met, you threw up, so I was a bit worried and rushed over here. I wish Makoto would have told me about that earlier…”
While absorbed in my thoughts, Edward opened the door in our room without knocking and entered the room. It seems like he had heard about how I threw up when I first met Ms. Makoto.
“It’s something that often happens when you’re pregnant you know. Your body won’t last long if you’re going to throw up every time you are coming to me.”
Lord Edward sits right next to me on the sofa.
Sitting right next to me, he snuggled up against me and rubbed my stomach with his hands.
“I see. So this child is making Ray’s life a little bit hard, huh?”
“It’s just the way it is.”
It seems like Lord Edward is deep in thought. I wonder exactly what he’s thinking about. But still, he hurried here out of worry for me right after talking to Ms. Makoto. That alone made me very happy.
It seemed like Lord Edward still hasn’t fallen in love with Ms. Makoto. Or so it seemed from his gesture.
“I can’t stand seeing you in pain like this…”
“Did you say something?”
I couldn’t really make out anything that Lord Edward was saying.
I asked, but he responded with “No, it’s nothing.”
I wonder what he was saying.
“This child feels relaxed whenever you’re by its side, so I feel pretty good.”
“Well then, I guess I’ll have to be right by your side at all times then.”
“Absolutely not. Please go to work. The crown prince can’t get careless and slack off.”
“Hehe. Ray is more important than work after all.”
Edward says while gently stroking my hair.
The way he stroked my hair was really relaxing and gave me a sense of security, so I lean my head against his shoulders.
Lord Edward, feeling pleased by my gesture, snuggled up his cheek against my head.
“Please take care of yourself and this country as well, ok?”
