Chapter 5: Memories of Rabbit and Alice’s Secret

“IT’S dark, Alice, so don’t lose sight of us.”

“It’s dark, Alice, so try not to stumble.”

Dum, Dee, and I maneuvered our way through the moonlit streets of London. The three of us were dressed in black coats to blend in with the darkness on our way to the National Archives building.

There, we would search for clues about this secret of Dark’s that Tierra revealed to us.

If a nobleman were to be questioned about an unsavory past, there should be some kind of official record that remained as a result.

The archives were closed, and on top of that, documents regarding private hearings weren’t available to the public. For those reasons, we chose to sneak in under the cloak of night.

We might be pushing our luck, but I could end up falling for Dark if I don’t do this.

Ever since the incident with Tierra, I felt a tender tug at my heartstrings each time I thought of Dark. He wasn’t just aware of the time I spent living in the East End, but he even respected me for it, and that fact alone made me far too happy for my own good.

Looking back on it, on the night of the ball, Dark was only capable of observing my locked heart from the outside. But now it would be easy enough for him to gain complete access…

…because I was unlocking it from the inside.

If he truly managed to steal my heart…

I’d be dead in no time at all.

Danger is more likely to befall the heroine in this game as she gets closer and closer to her love interest. If I was living in Dark’s route, I couldn’t pursue him romantically.

I needed to look for a side character to marry who posed no threat to my life, unlike Dark. The more I thought about it, the more I was sure it was my best shot at cheating death. And yet…

…deep down, he was the only one I wanted to be with.

What girl wouldn’t be flustered to find herself in this situation?

I just wanted a reason to get over him already. If there was proof that he was a horrible man, I could probably overcome these feelings for him.

With the proximity to the river Thames and the dusting of nighttime mist on the streets, the air became damp and pungent the closer we got to the archives. We hid behind a tree near the back gate to survey the area, where we saw guards patrolling the perimeter of the darkened stone building.

Breaking into this building would be no easy task for a human. But luckily…

The three of us were stigmata—demon children. We sat down under the tree and held hands to form a circle.

“Are you ready, Alice?” “Are you ready, Alice?”

The matching moles under their eyes turned into droplets of liquid. Like black ink, they dribbled down their cheeks and expanded, forming the rose-shaped stigma on their faces like tattoos.

Warmth crept into my hands like static electricity from their fingertips.
