Reincarnated Villainess Does Not Want Revenge - Chapter 68
Translated by: ShinigamiTori
A Prophecy from the Reincarnated Young Lady
After being reborn as Marie, Queen Tia, whom I had seen several times while working as a maid in the palace, would deliberately engage in arguments with King Gray to provoke him. Sometimes she would proudly bring men into her castle, and sometimes she would hold lavish tea parties in the royal palace.
The Tia that Rosemary remembers was a maid who always seemed quiet. And for some reason, she only made some mistakes and cried whenever Rosemary and Prince Gray were nearby.
In the presence of the prince who consoled her with words of sympathy, she had thought that there was absolutely no emotion in Tiara’s eyes as she shed tears.
This was true even when she became romantically involved with Prince Gray and when he informed her of their engagement’s cancellation.
It was baffling for Rosemary to observe Tia appearing frightened yet devoid of any emotion in her eyes. That’s precisely why, when she saw Tia’s face before the execution, she grasped the whole truth.
Oh, this woman doesn’t see other people as human beings, she thought.
That’s why Rosemary warned her.
She said, “What you’re doing will eventually catch up with you.”
I still think about it now that I’ve been reborn as Marie.
Because at this very moment, Queen Tia’s eyes are not only devoid of emotion but brimming with sinister pleasure.
This was the true nature of Tia Diresias.
I and my unit leader were hiding and watching the room where the queen and Reynaldo would be, when suddenly a man jumped out and shouted to the men waiting around him, “Bring that woman!”
Seeing that most of the men who had been waiting there had left, the squad leader took the opportunity and knocked out the sole remaining lookout.
“They’ll know I’m not there. So, I’m going to get to Reynaldo before that happens.”
“Are you insane!?”
“I’m perfectly sane.”
While the squad leader was tying up the unconscious guard, I moved a shelf to block the room’s entrance. It should buy us some time.
“Squad leader, may I ask you to accompany me?”
As I smiled wryly and tried to persuade him, the squad leader only sighed deeply and muttered, “I hope the Commander won’t kill me…..”
Inside, there were several guards, and at the center, Reynaldo was crouching, with the Queen standing beside him.
Upon locking eyes with the Queen, a brief flashback of Rosemary’s memories came back to me, and I recalled the last words she had conveyed to her.
I observed Tia’s demeanor for a while, but she just looked at me and smiled, not really paying attention.
I nodded quietly to the squad leader.
In that instant, the squad leader swiftly attacked several men around him.
Surprised and shaken by the sudden surprise attack, the men collapse helplessly, and despite their frantic attempts to resist, the squad leader quickly gained control of the situation, even though they outnumbered him.
The moment he made a move, I sprinted as well, heading towards Reynaldo. When I rushed to try to release him from his restraints, the man who had been restraining Reynaldo lunged at me.
For a moment, fear coursed through my body, but Reynaldo, who had been crouching down, gracefully rose to his feet and used his long legs to kick down the man who had attempted to attack me.
I hurriedly handed the dagger I was carrying to Reynaldo, and he handled it with ease, slashing the man who tried to seize me, and then pointed the blood-stained dagger at Tia.
Reynaldo let out a sigh and said.
“You always do the most unexpected things… Thank you, Marie.”
He smiled gently.
The plan, which the squad leader had persistently emphasized, stating that speed was the key to victory, had proven to be successful.
As soon as I told him I was going in, he decided on this strategy.
Using me as a decoy, I will enter the room, and the squad leader will seize the chance to attack the guards. At the same time, I will hand over the dagger to Reynaldo. We had confirmed that he wasn’t being restrained with ropes as he was taken away, but if he was, the plan was to use the dagger to free him.
If Tia happened to know the squad leader’s face, it could have posed a danger, but it turned out to be an unnecessary worry.
Reynaldo seemed to grasp the situation the moment he saw me and the squad leader, and he acted as if he knew the plan. However, it was still a mystery how he could move so well despite his injuries.
“I’m glad to see you’re safe, Duke.”
“You must be the leader of the First Division. I’ll have to ask Alberto to give you a special reward later. I assume your presence here means that Alberto is close by?”
“Then I’m sorry, but could you go get him for me?”
The squad leader looked at me and Reynaldo with concern for a moment, but he nodded and left the room.
The only ones left were Tia, me, and Reynaldo. The others had all been knocked out.
“How was it, Your Majesty? Did you enjoy the game?”
Reynaldo said calmly as he brought the small dagger closer to her neck.
Queen Tia smiled slowly, though she was soaked in sweat.
“Yes, indeed. This is the first time I’ve seen a battle like this.”
“That’s right. You, a coward, have always played the escape game. The only time you enjoy a game is when your victory is certain. You were faster than anyone else when it came to running away.”
With deliberate disdain in his words, Reynaldo taunted Tia, and his expression remained icy.
“Yes… Perhaps if I hadn’t tried any tricks and just brought this woman here, there might have been a chance.”
Queen Tia glanced at me, but I had no idea what Reynaldo and Queen Tia were talking about.
“With all due respect, Tia-sama, but this is not a game.”
The word “game” uttered between her and Reynaldo, which had been on my mind for a while, felt distinctly uncomfortable.
“A game is just that: a game.”
“Hehe. To receive a reprimand from a maid like yourself.”
Watching Tia, who appeared to be belittling me, I understood that nothing would get through to her.
So, at the very least, let me offer these words to her.
“What you’re doing will eventually catch up with you.”
Tia’s expression hardened.
Ah, you remembered.
I smiled faintly.
Tia’s lips begin to quiver.
She then gazed at the coffin positioned nearby. After that, she looked at me once more.
Because I was addressed by the same title she used to call me at that time,
I couldn’t help but chuckle softly.
