The Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 54
Jeez, the old hag was a much worse person after hearing about it directly from her subordinate.
I didn’t notice it because for the past month I’ve been living in the Duke’s mansion, I’ve been studying hard to get ready for the academy, and I’ve only been in contact with Mina, who was newly hired as my caretaker. But it seems that there are some strange people mixed in with the servants here. Especially the ones who once served near the old hag’s side.
It seems that if they fire people all at once, they’ll run out of staff, so they’re gradually firing and replacing them, but I guess some of them refuse to take over and keep holding on to their jobs.
“Miss, do you want me to clean that up?”
I was at a loss for a response when Mina told me plainly.
“No, don’t. Until we welcome the royal family here, we’re going to need some manpower. Even if they are like that, the butler may have trouble if they are gone. I’ll talk to my brother afterwards and leave it to his judgment.” (Ekaterina)
“I understand. And, miss, I’m not a demon.” (Mina)
Mina said this too matter-of-factly, and I smiled.
“Of course, Mina is not.”
“But my grandfather on my mother’s side was a demon.”
Again I was at a loss for words, but inwardly I was lightly convinced.
So, Mina was someone with demon blood in her veins.
That’s why she’s so strong that she can carry me in her arms and walk around. I wonder if there are humanoid demons in this world, and if they have children with humans.
But when I think about it, since (in the game) the Demon Dragon King does transform into a human and become the target of the heroine’s love attack, I guess it’s only natural for there to be possible romance between demons and humans.
“I see, so you were like that, I didn’t know that. If you had mentioned it earlier and I forgot about it, I’m sorry.”
“I don’t think I told you about it. When the lady came to the imperial capital, she suddenly collapsed, and thus I was not able to properly greet the lady.”
(E/N: Refer to Chapter 1-2. Ekaterina fell unconscious for three days.)
“Oh, that’s right.”
My memories of my previous life came flooding in, and I had the memories and personalities of two people in my head. My head would hurt like crazy, and whenever I tried to move, it would instantly shut down, and I would lose consciousness. It took about three days for things to settle down, and I’m really glad.
“I’m not a demon, but I do have demon blood. Some of them are like what you just said. Even in the duchy, they say that Yurimagna would never use someone like me. Don’t you hate it, young lady?”
Hmm, I don’t know, I don’t get the feeling that I hate Mina at all.
Maybe it’s because I read a lot of manga and novels with different species in my previous life. It’s a shame that people hate that kind of thing.
I mean, if a stranger was a demon, I might be a little wary, but Mina has been taking care of me for two months now, feeding me, changing my clothes, doing everything. Just because her grandfather isn’t human doesn’t mean she’s not a good thing.
“Oh my, I remember now. When my brother wasn’t by my side, I was thirsty but couldn’t move, so I was struggling in bed. That’s when you first helped me up.” (Ekaterina)
She then continued.
“I remember how gentle and comforting your hands were as you helped me up and gave me a drink of water. When I talked to you, I was a little surprised by your blunt speech, but I didn’t mind because your hands were so gentle. I don’t think I could ever dislike Mina.”
