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


Chapter 2

There were commoners in the church besides the Plumes.

They mainly handled the church’s chores, and the Plumes looked down on them in some way.

The reason why the Plumes worked in this church was not so much to serve God, but to increase their value in noble society by spending a certain period of time in the church.

Because they were here for such reasons, they naturally did not have the impartial kindness of a sister.

At first, I felt closer to the commoner girls who did the dirty work than to the Plumes of noble birth.

However, those girls seemed to resent me for being a saint while they were also commoners. They made unpleasant faces every time I talked to them.

I couldn’t fit in with either the Plumes or the commoners.

I took on healing work and did chores like washing dishes and cleaning as much as I could to try to be accepted, but everyone just looked at me with boredom.

There is a saint in the church who is the opposite of me and loved by everyone.

Her name is Noemi-sama. She is from the Count family and is one year younger than me at sixteen. She seems to have a weak body and cannot work outside for long, but everyone’s faces light up just by her smiling.

Unlike my plain appearance with brown hair and chestnut eyes, Noemi-sama was a beautiful woman with blonde hair and blue eyes. 

There are only two saints in the church, Noemi-sama and myself, but naturally everyone looks at us differently.

Noemi-sama is loved, worshipped, and cherished by everyone, while I am ignored by everyone.

However, Noemi-sama herself treats me equally without discrimination.

When I am cleaning, she says “It’s tough,” and when I return late from my healing work, she smiles and says “Thank you for your hard work.”

People around Noemi-sama praise her even more for being so kind.

I never felt like I belonged in the church since I first came here. However, an event happened that made it worse.

I was chosen to be the fiancée of Virgil, the first prince of our country.

Virgil was handsome and popular among the Plumes in the church.

Since this church has a deep connection with the royal family, it is not uncommon for the prince himself to come here. However, he always treated everyone kindly without being arrogant. 

Even so, he seemed to enjoy being around Noemi-sama in particular.

One day, someone said to Noemi-sama, “Are you going to marry Prince Virgil?” and the person next to them agreed that they would make a good match. I thought the same thing. 

However, one day I was summoned by the bishop and informed that I had been chosen to be Virgil’s fiancée.

I panicked and tried to refuse, but I had no right to do so, and the bishop simply told me it was a decision that had been made.

In this country, it is customary for royalty to marry a saint from the church for generations.

There are currently two saints in the church, so either one could have been chosen, but unfortunately, I have the ability to see the light of spirits, while Noemi-sama has the ability to hear the whispers of spirits.

I don’t know what criteria they used, but in this country’s spirit studies, seeing is considered more important than hearing.

Therefore, I was judged to be more suitable as the prince’s fiancée.
