The Villainess Does Not Reflect! - Chapter 7.1
I stared at Gilbert for a while, who had fallen silent with a look of despair all over his face.
I don’t know why he looked hurt, but in times like this, the best thing to do is to watch over him. A good wife and a wise queen is one who quietly supports a wounded man, gently encourages him, and heals his heart.
Since I am going to be Gilbert’s wife, I am, properly speaking, the queen. In any case, it would be easy for me to roll around in the palm of my hand the prince of the demon tribe, who is crude, delicate, and a little troublesome.
A little rough around the edges might be more rewarding.
“Damn, they’re all pestering me because of my status, I really don’t like it, that’s why I don’t like being the prince!” Gilbert barked.
How can he say this, it’s appalling.
He is a prince, so it’s only natural for him to have such a thing. Status is a part of a person’s power, so it is only natural that there are many women who would like to be together with the prince, obtaining the highest rank. If no one is interested in you, even if you are a prince, that would be a problem.
“You, as a member of the royal family, I can turn a blind eye to your slurred speech, disheveled clothing, and overall untidiness. But what do you mean you don’t like being a prince? Nowadays, even babies are a little more attentive.”
“What’s the matter with you, you suddenly show up at someone’s house and act all high and mighty! I thought you wanted me to take you.”
“Yes, I am the woman who will be your wife. But that’s not the same thing. I am surprised at how foolish you are to be so depressed.”
Gilbert stared at me with an angry expression.
The golden eyes staring at me as if they were shooting at me, their pupils narrowed. He looked as if he was about to bite me to death.
“I thought you were a helpless human child, so I treated you a little nicely, and you got carried away.”
“You speak as if you are an uneducated sinner. The prince of the demon world is a terrible person to listen to.”
I put my hands on my hips angryly.
“The good thing, Gilbert, is that the royalty is the one who governs the country. The royal family’s job is not only to govern the country. The prince is also responsible for the succession of as many heirs as possible, educate them, and pass them on to the next generation while enhancing their values and teaching them how to live their lives so that there will be no conflicts. It is a good thing that many women are courting you, isn’t it? That must be why Gilbert-sama is so attractive, you should be proud of yourself.”
“What would a child like you know? I don’t know why I’m talking to a child about this. Forget about that.”
Gilbert looked away in a panic in the middle of my speech, with his cheeks flushed red.
I wondered how old he was and if I actually look like a child to him.
Rest assured, I may look as pure and innocent as a beautiful snow fairy, but I am a lady who has experienced both sweet and sour feelings.
I am a good advisor on love, and I know a great deal about men and women and that kind of thing.
Since she was supposed to be a queen, she has also learned the art of sexual intimacy.
Of course, I can also pretend to be an innocent girl who doesn’t know anything about anything, depending on my partner’s preference. I know the importance of that. I have no blind spot.
“I am not a child like you think I am, Gilbert-sama. In my kingdom, you are allowed to marry at the age of fifteen. I am sixteen and mature enough to marry.”
“You….. you, what are you talking about, it’s a crime!”
Gilbert widened his eyes and looked at me as if he could not believe what he was seeing.
Then he shook his head emphatically.
“The nation of men is cruel….. to such a child.”
“I can understand your feelings of guilt for plucking such a slender, fragile, lovely flower as mine. I must look like an innocent lamb sacrificed to the devil next to your savage self.”
“Give me back my sympathy. You are a very rude woman, you know that?”
“I know what I’m talking about. I know that some men try to get the attention of their loved ones by using demeaning words. Gilbert-sama also has that kind of character?”
Okay, maybe Gilbert was looking for love to pursue rather than to be pursued.
Then surely, no matter how much the women of the demon tribe pursued him, his heart would never grow fond of them.
He is lucky to have met me, for there is no other maiden more worthy of pursuit than I am.
“Gilbert, you have recognized me as a woman.”
“Oh…. No, I didn’t. You’re a child.”
“How old are you, then?”
I don’t think age is a big issue. But since Gilberto seems to be concerned about it, I can’t help it.
So I decided to ask him.
“I don’t remember much, but I was made, I guess, about 200 years ago.”
“In other words, two hundred years old. So, you mean that you have been wasting your seed for….. two hundred years without producing any children?”
“You keep calling people barbaric and whatnot!”
Gilbert has been very excited since a few minutes ago.
I understand that he is excited to see me, a beautiful girl who is like a blessing from heaven.
But I want him to calm down a little.
As a grown man who has lived for two hundred years, he should have a relaxed mind.
