I’ll Become a Villainess That Will Go Down in History - Chapter 288
We finally returned to the castle, having managed to avoid Victor’s argument.
I felt as if I had been here for a long time, even though I had only been here for a short time.
My familiarity with this place scared me.
After greeting Captain Marius, my grandfathers, and Victor, I headed back to the hut.
Finally, the expedition was over.
I was exhausted.
I turned lightly, trying to relax the muscles in my shoulders.
In the Forest of Death, Victor saved my life several times….
I was the one protecting him, but I never thought I would be protected by him.
I needed more training.
“I’m home, Rai~”
Rai jumped on me happily as soon as he saw me.
I gently stroke his black, soft and beautiful fur.
He looked at me with excited eyes.
I wondered if he was that happy to see me.
I knew I should have a lion after all.
Slowly, I unwrapped the cloth around my eyes.
My work for the day was done.
My blurred vision became clearer, and I could see every detail.
“Hmmm! I feel so liberated!”
I laid down on the ground with my hands stretched wide upwards.
Rai rubs his face against mine.
It was warm and comfortable… I feel at ease.
I let out a big yawn.
“I still have some things to do… but for today, I’m done…”
Unable to resist the urge to sleep, I drift off to sleep.
The morning sun poured in mercilessly through the small window and woke me up.
It was dazzling.
I squint as I rouse myself.
Normally, I would be able to get up and move right away, but my body felt heavy, as if the fatigue from the expedition had not yet worn off.
Besides, sleeping on the floor didn’t help me recover that much after all.
“Good morning, Rai.”
I stroked Rai, who was sleeping peacefully next to me.
He had such wonderful fur….
It was like a luxurious cushion.
The door of the hut was opened with a bang.
At the same time, the fragile door was broken.
“How long are you going to sleep”
With the sunlight in the background, Victor stood in a regal position.
Someone please tell me it was a dream.
I didn’t want to be bothered by this person on a dreary morning.
“…this must be a dream.”
I muttered quietly and tried to get into a sleeping position again.
“It’s not a dream.
You’ve had enough rest.
Besides, you’re leaving this shack today.”
“Are you still talking about that I don’t want to sleep with the prince.
I mean, please fix that door.”
Victor kicked the door open, making it look so miserable.
“You’re really strange, aren’t you Normally, seeing me would make anyone happy enough to cry.
And you’d have a much easier time sleeping in my room than in this shack.”
Victor looked at me with a really strange expression on his face.
“I’m sorry to say that I’m not normal.
And I find this cabin more appealing than the prince’s room.”
“I don’t get it… Well, it doesn’t matter what you say anymore.
I let you sleep in this hut yesterday.
…I wondered how this could have happened.
I sighed as I looked at Victor, who was full of confidence.
I would do everything in my power to keep this out of Duke-sama’s ears….
