Huuuuuuge spoiler. Around chapter 26 there’s a prince’s point of view And in the MTL he clearly states he doesn’t love the heroine and was using her for his own ends. Shit! I mean throughout this story it was implied this guy was vile dirtbag but holy shit on a fuck cracker!! Edit: ok later on the chapter he states he was lying to his mother about his feelings for which are quite affectionate. However, he forces her to use her (heroine’s) precognitive ability knowing it will shorten her life. He’s also lusting after the MC after realizing how gorgeous she is and how her disposition is fitting of a queen.
