The Obedient Saint Was Made a Scapegoat, so She Decided To Be Reborn as a Villainess


Chapter 17

“What are you doing?”

“What’s wrong with pursuing my own self-interests? Just because I happened to be born with the ability of a saint, does that mean I have to serve unconditionally?! Let me tell you, even if I do that, no one will appreciate it. They will soon take it for granted and complain if I don’t meet their expectations. Do you expect me to endure such treatment?!”

When I shouted in a voice that echoed throughout the hallway, Roland-sama looked stunned.

No matter what Roland-sama said, I couldn’t understand it. No, maybe it was because it was Roland-sama’s words that made me sad.

When I was Anna, I worked day and night for the people of the town and the church, abandoning my own self-interests. But the result was contemptuous looks and a miserable end as a scapegoat.

Was that way of life right? Even if it ended in sadness, was it okay because it was for the benefit of others? That’s not a joke. I never want that kind of life again.

Roland-sama frowned at me as I breathed heavily on my shoulders and said, “I didn’t say that. I just think your actions are too extreme.”

“Oh really? Aren’t all humans like that? Let me ask you, Roland-sama, do you know anyone who doesn’t act out of self-interest and treats both those in power and commoners equally? Is there such a person?” 

“Yes. I know her well. Her name is Anna, and she worked here as a saint before you came. She was a very kind person. Despite being in the position of a saint, she never complained about doing menial tasks and would take care of the sick for hours even after the Plumes had left. I always wanted to live like her.”

Roland-sama’s cold expression from earlier was now replaced with a gentle one as he spoke. I realized that his smile was not directed towards me, but towards Anna.

My heart started to ache again, but it was a different kind of pain than before.

However, what came to my mind was not joy at the praise for my past self.

“I see. So there was someone like that.”

“Yes, she was a wonderful person.”

“Then where is she now and what is she doing? If she’s such a good person, she must be living happily somewhere.”

When I asked, Roland-sama’s face immediately twisted. He bit his lip painfully and then looked away from me.

“I don’t know. But she must be living happily somewhere.”

“I see. That’s good to hear. But I can’t stand living like that.”

I turned my back and ran away from Roland-sama. 

It was as if I had run away. However, I didn’t want to talk about Roland-sama and Anna anymore.

“Roseline, I thought he was a nasty guy, but he spoke highly of Anna, so he’s a good guy!”

“I can’t forgive him for saying something disrespectful to Roseline-sama, though.”

Rose and Luca were flying around me.

I didn’t feel happy. After all, the Anna that Roland-sama praised is no longer here. I have become a villainess who only thinks about myself.

I have no regrets.

However, when I think that the self that Roland-sama said was wonderful is lost, my heart aches.
