Who will the Villainess choose?
“To the chancellor office,” said Damien, as we sat in the carriage. I tried my best to eat as slowly as possible to delay the process, but in the end, I knew that I had to go.
He was busy looking at the portrait with mixed emotions.
“I do not know whether i should be happy that i have a kin that is alive or should i kill all of them with my own hands for betraying me.” he even chuckled when he finished the sentence, but all the hair of my body stood up, as i felt goosebumps over my skin.
The way he said the sentence, bloodlust was clear in his voice. I moved as far away as I could when I heard him.
“Your assistant has done wonders in making this portrait. It looks very realistic, even minor details such as the mole are shown correctly. If i did not know any better, i would have thought that he knew the kid since a long time.” he laughed again, but there was no humor in his voice
Did I make a mistake to make the perfect portrait? I had made it to find the boy. I have never thought that he will be the one to use it in the end or else I would have made it a bit vague.
“Well, the boy was exceptionally handsome, and his resemblance to the duke was exigent. And of course, my staff is more than capable in everything they do.'' I replied confidently.
“My lord, we are here.” I thanked my last seven generations for the timely interruption of the guard. I did not know if I would be able to make further excuses.
We both walked towards the office of the chancellor as he held the portrait tightly in his hands.
“My lord, how can I assist you?” said the man, standing like a waiter as the water and other snacks were served as if we were to ask for the hand of his daughter.
“We are finding a boy, he has been seen here a few days ago in the market area.” he replied, sitting nonchalantly, folding one leg over another, like the whole office belongs to him.
“Oh,” the only sound came out the voice of the man who was sitting there dumbfounded by the work given to him. If it had been any other person, he would have insulted and thrown him out of the office. But this was lord Damien, the owner of this estate.
“Of course, my lord, I will make copies of this portrait and distribute it to the whole town. I will inform you the result in a week.” said the man, getting back his composure. But would that be enough for Damien who wanted things to be done perfectly.
“I do not have a week, i need results till next morning.” he announced with a frown.
I wanted to laugh at the predicament of the chancellor, his smile was looking uglier than the cries.
“My lord, one day would be.. Too much, I will try my best to give you results by this evening.” said the man nodding his head. I wanted to laugh as the way change his wording when Damien picked up the cup in his hands. How even the cup in his hands was able to scare people was a scene worth witnessing.
“Very well, then i will wait for your reply.” he said and stood up.
‘That was it! We have come this far just to get this answer. Anyways it was good, this way we would be able to go home early and i will be able to go out on my date with Andrew.’ A giggle was about to escape my lips but I controlled.
“Well, since we have some time left, let's go and check the market.” my steps halted when i heard his next statement.
But then i nodded, it would be a good way to explore the market of this world. I remembered watching multiple magical things there in the game.
It took us some time to reach there, unconsciously I was expecting to see the bird but it did not come to meet me.
“Is there something that matters?” He asked me to bring my attention back to him.
I shook my head as he would think I was crazy if I told him that I was waiting for a bird to come and meet me.
“Then are you expecting to see your lover here?” he asked with a smirk and I glared at him and then continued to look out of the window. But surprisingly as he said, I saw the carriage of the crown prince at a distance.
My eyes widened yet a smirk formed on my lips. Now I have to convince him to spend some time with me here and then it would be a perfect date.
“You have a golden tongue, Damien. I wish you would have said that I was getting married to Andrew.`` I replied with a hug. My happiness knew no bound.
He turned stiff in my arms again and only then did I realize that he was Damien, the Damien!!
“I mean, you should foretell often.'' I said with a cough as I moved away from him.
Then I continued to look at the carriage.
“I think they are going towards the market too.” I mumbled with a giggle like a young girl.
“This was the best gift I could have received from lord.” We followed the carriage and soon both carriages reached the market.
I almost jumped out of the carriage when it stopped and ran towards the carriage of Andrew. I adjusted my dress and stood in front of it with a bright smile on my face.
But the carriage’s door did not open even after waiting for a while. So I knocked on the door. After a minute the door finally opened. But when the carriage opened he was not alone, there was a girl who was holding his arms.
The smile on my face turned stiff as I saw them together. I wanted to walk in and separate both of them. And then slap both of them, it was a blatant insult of my love for him. But I did not understand why he was doing so?! He was not flirting, he was a responsible lover and was always loyal to me in the game, then why had the script changed so badly?!
“Your highness” I called only then did he look towards me, but there was no surprise in his eyes. As if he knew I was there which confused me. Did he know that I was here waiting for him?
“Your highness, I thought you were busy this whole week with a tight schedule. I was not expecting to see you here at this time.`` I asked with a hint of anger in my voice.
He raised a brow and looked at me with a bored expression.
“I have thought same for you, then what are you doing here, my loving fiancee, Akira”
