The Villainess is Raising the Male Protagonist - Chapter 10
He smiled more clearly than before to see if her reaction was interesting. She tried to control her mind and calmly continued her words.
“Isn’t it good to be toys for each other?”
“Ha… I like it. Then what does Archduke want? Is it my position? I won’t break up the marriage if I get engaged. I’m going to die anyway, so this country will be yours.”
“I don’t need a position or this country.”
She frowned without realizing it.
She felt pain in her head again. Perhaps because she cared, she didn’t feel good again. she held her breath while holding back nausea that came up. She felt the shaking of her hands.
Damn, she felt like she wouldn’t be able to get out of the bed for a while.
Thinking of staying in the room blankly as if she was trapped in the hospital room again, she felt like her blood was rising upside down. She felt like she was going crazy in a suffocating and stuffy mood.
“Of course! What… What do you want?”
She was choked up, so she raised her voice without realizing it and lowered her tone by looking around. She hasn’t gotten into anyone’s ears yet. It’s just the beginning. Isn’t it too embarrassing if he’s already noticed?
Looking closely at her breathing a little harder than before, Arthur looked at her body as if he didn’t like something.
“I’ll show you what the Princess is curious about. Instead, let’s sign the contract at my castle.”
What he brought up was unexpected. When she asked what he wanted or needed, Arthur replied that he would show her what she wanted.
It was uncomfortable, but it doesn’t matter. Whatever she was thinking, all she needed now was him.
“Okay. Get engaged, but we won’t let anyone know we’re engaged yet.”
“I guess you still have work to punish your toys.”
“What’s left? It’s just the beginning.”
Arthur looked at the darkened sky once and saw her again. He used to walk ahead of herself as if to follow him.
She was embarrassed by his impulsive behavior, but she followed him unexpectedly.
‘Was there a path like this in the Imperial palace?’
She felt unfamiliar with the road she saw for the first time, so she shrank even more. Come to think of it, she shouldn’t have followed this smoothly.
He’s also a villain, and he might suddenly kill her or do something incomprehensible!
As soon as she thought of that, she started walking far away from him. She walked too far to go back, and she was scared because she had to find her way alone.
What if she gets lost and suddenly dies while wandering in a place where no one knows? It was terrible. She closed her eyes and shook her head to erase the image that came to mind.
“You’ll have to write a letter as soon as you wake up in the morning.”
“What? What letter?”
As he stepped aside, there was a wagon waiting in front of him. So, where are you going on this ride?…? She suddenly saw him with absurd eyes, hardened in place as if the accident had stopped.
“We’re going to go to the castle.”
“What do you mean now?”
“Can’t you tell?”
“So, right now? At this hour? In this outfit?”
She pointed to her body and asked as if this made sense. Arthur looked through her as if not knowing what the problem was and got on the wagon.
He nodded at her, standing blankly without closing the door and looking at her.
‘…… He’s a villain, but he’s too cocky?’
She’s a Princess, but the Grand Duke nods at her. She was annoyed for no reason. In addition, he was looking at her first without escorting her. She couldn’t help but laugh.
“I don’t have any regrets, but the princess seems to have nothing to regret as well.”
So, what he’s saying is, follow the person who’s disappointed.
“Okay, let’s go. Would the country go crazy if one of the Princesses disappeared? It’s a time limit for today and tomorrow anyway.”
Father, that’s right, but only one person will go crazy.
As soon as she thought of Gray, she got into the carriage. She felt burdened, but she didn’t show it.
She was used to enduring the pain, and revealing and informing this pain did not improve.
‘There’s still a long way to go, Mary Anastasia. So, wake up.’
She tried to pull herself together by shouting her name mentally. Sitting face to face in a rattling carriage, he looked at her for a moment and soon turned his eyes toward the window.
Looking out the window, it was dark, and she couldn’t see anything. All she could hear was a wagon running down the street.
Come to think of it, it was weird. If a carriage was waiting on a road, she didn’t even know near the Palace, which meant that he knew the geography of the Imperial Palace better than she did.
‘Really, you’re just not interested in this empire.’
She bit her lips again, reflecting on what he had said to her. But why did he change his mind? She thought he didn’t get interested until the end.
“Princess Mary Anastasia.”
“Yes, go ahead.”
Strangely, she felt like her body was drooping more than before. His voice rang more and more languidly in her ears.
