“Well, that’s how it is. Don’t bother contacting me because it’s annoying.”

However, Jude easily abandoned me. He chose the princess. The person I believed in was not him, but the one written in the newspaper. 

Certainly, compared to the princess who holds the title of “Great Saint,” given to the most outstanding among the Saints, I can’t use any impressive magic, and I’m not beautiful either. I know that if we were to weigh it, the princess would win.

Still, after making me wait for three years, he shouldn’t speak like this.

When Jude was chosen as the hero, there was talk of the village chief’s son marrying me. Not only my family, but Jude’s mother also said it would be better that way.

I also struggled a lot. I loved Jude.

But I thought that waiting might become a burden for him. Even so, Jude asked me to wait. He said he would definitely come to pick me up and hugged me.

For three years, I cherished and polished those memories as precious memories that would lead to a happy future.

And yet, take the money you earned and go home?

Don’t contact me because it’s annoying?

“Don’t make a fool out of me! Who would contact you! I don’t even want to see your face.”

I must have looked ridiculous, dressed up unusually. I won’t cling to him. I hold back the urge to cry and glare at him.

“Well, that’s convenient. Oh, and by the way, that outfit doesn’t suit you.” 

Jude laughs abruptly and leaves. He didn’t have such a dirty way of laughing before becoming a hero. He used to be a gentle person who laughed softly. The battles changed him.

Until he disappears from sight, I tightly grip the hem of my dress.

I bought this dress after knowing that he succeeded in negotiating with the Demon King and would come back. Most of the reward I received as an Apprentice Saint was sent as support to my family, and I didn’t indulge in luxury. It was the only luxury item I bought in two years. I thought the floral dress shining in the windows of the capital would surely receive compliments.

When Jude returned to the capital and received a letter, I immediately pulled it out of the closet. It was a lemon-colored dress that stood out among the row of Saint outfits. I tied my hair with a refreshing green ribbon that matched the dress, and I even put on light makeup, although it was faint.

I was teased by the other Apprentice Saints, saying, “You’re meeting your boyfriend!” But they also supported me—yet, this is the state of affairs. I’m embarrassed. From the moment I prepared myself and left the church, it was probably the happiest time of my life.

“What should I do from now on. . .”

Now that the role of the Saint has changed from defeating the Demon King to coexistence, it has greatly diminished. Most of the Apprentice Saints gathered in the capital will be dismissed in a few days. I am one of them.

I will receive a slightly higher reward for the last month as a substitute for retirement pay, but even if I have money, I have nowhere to go. Jude easily said to go back to the village and get married, but after being away from the village for three years, there is no potential marriage partner. 

In the first place, our village has few young people. When I rejected the village chief’s son, there was no vacant bride position. But that doesn’t mean I can stay at my parents’ house. My older brother and his wife live there. I can’t stay for long.

Even if I try to find a good person in another village, it would be inconvenient if it became known that I was waiting for Jude. Even if I emphasize that I was an Apprentice Saint in the capital, I was just an apprentice. I can only use low-level enchantment magic. The reason I received a higher reward until now was based on the premise of fighting the Demon King. Once I return to the village, I will become just a village girl again.

If that happens, I can imagine Jude laughing at me, saying that I was only worth that much. I remember his dirty laugh from earlier, and it makes me feel sick.
