Chapter 32 – Part 2
Judging from the contents of the letter, the temple had also tried to suppress the rumors but it seemed that they couldn’t.
Which indicated that the impact of the rumors from mouth to mouth was already in ripple effect.
I haven’t sensed this immense interest from the people since modern times.
“I cannot believe such rumors!”
“It’s not too much. But, haven’t you stopped the rumors until now? If there were such rumors, the temple would have made a move. No, since when did the rumors start?”
“It hasn’t even been three days. So do not go outside until it settles down. Because the opinion of the public is not good right now.”
It seemed that the rumors circulated slowly and had only exploded now.
I actually wanted to say more, but I stopped myself.
Because if he noticed I knew something, he wouldn’t speak himself.
At that time, I had to suffer quite a bit to get Lisandro to open his mouth.
So before that, Lisandro had to let the rumors come out on their own.
“Everything will be settled if I go out.”
Lisandro clicked his tongue and frowned.
“What do you mean ‘everything will be settled’? They say that Noonim is possessed!”
That was unexpected. I can’t believe I’m being possessed by evil spirits.
There’s no soul who does not know that I am a Saint. A formal ceremony was also held.
If the rumor was that at large, even the ceremony would be under fire for being false.
But, why would they believe that I was possessed, at all.
Still, saying I was possessed was too much. It’s also a crisis because that rumor could lead to me being branded as a Witch pretending to be a Saint and burned at the stake.
It was understandable why Lisandro was sensitive about it.
“This sucks. I’m looking for the source of the rumors.”
Lisandro ruffled his hair, as if his anger would not be subsiding anytime soon.
Because the rumor was dangerous. If a mistake was made, Noonim will be burned at the stake, but it was weirder that despite the crisis, she was calm.
One was not taken seriously, so I asked in a playful tone, pretending to be serious.
“Why possessed by an evil spirit? Did you skip classes back then? Were you involved in a fight with the Believers?”
“Being manipulated by evil spirits because I have not been fulfilling my duties as a saint and not using my holy powers… huh?”
When I showed a victorious smile, Lisandro exclaimed with a look of amazement.
That was a lot better to hear than being called a Saint.
As I was teasing Lisandro, good news arrived.
“Princess. Frey is here. Shall I bring him inside?”
Before Lisandro could say anything, I hurriedly gave permission.
Frey entered and he sat naturally on the sofa and said, looking at me and Lisandro.
“You two must have been discussing the rumors.”
It seemed that Frey came after hearing the rumors.
Lisandro looked displeased, but was forced to repeat all the rumors.
The whole story of the incident was as follows.
Rumors began at some point that the saint was possessed by evil spirits.
However, when I couldn’t control my emotions after dreaming of being killed by Lisandro, staying at home only gave a boost to the rumors.
When I wasn’t attending any volunteer work, and when I tried purifying the growing stronger evil spirits, I failed.
That was why neither blessing nor purification was done.
It was said that even after seeing people, they began to whisper, saying that there was a reason for creating a strange relief organization.
The creation of a relief organization was actually about trying to destroy the temple after fooling them into believing.
Even those who laughed at it first, saying it’s a funny joke, seemed to begin to have doubts, saying ‘Is that so?’ when the rumors began to spread.
Naturally, the more provocative the content, the faster the rumors spread.
Public opinion was divided. Some said it’s much better now, and some said it’s not.
The voices of the masses who are displeased for not fulfilling my duty as a Saint gave the rumors more backing.
Like ants twisting out of control when only a small bit of sugar fell on the floor.
Rumors are falsified by making up nonsensical words.
Rumors had already spread, and public opinion of me was leaning against me.
A minority can’t beat the majority.
If everyone says with a nuance of concern that the saint is possessed by evil spirits, they have no choice but to lean toward it.
Even if one denies it, if the majority of the people claim it is so, it becomes the truth.
Mother, who left and said seriously that she would investigate the truth and take extreme measures. So that’s what the reason was.
The source of this rumor was probably the one who wanted me or who wanted me to fall into the abyss.
However, it was more likely to be the latter.
If it was the former, he would have worked hard to win my heart, rather than spreading such obscene rumors.
…No, that’s not it.
No, rather, there was a way to pretend in putting out these rumors and act as a savior that I would be by then rejected by the Empire.
If that’s it, then it might be easier to sway my heart.
“But how long do you have to worry about it?”
Is it wrong to be stuck in the house for more than a month?
Why can’t he let go of what happened last year.
“The rumors are true. You should make it sound plausible. What kind of evil spirit do you think I am?”
“Why are you taking this so easily? If you make a mistake, you will be burned at the stake!”
He slammed the table angrily. The teacups and plates on the table rattled.
Of course, as a princess of the Rohelio family, I will never be burned at the stake.
Still, the rumor seemed to infuriate Lisandro.
It’s obvious that they are trying to demonize me and burn me at the stake.
“This is not the first time this has happened. If you’re angry like this every time, you’re the only one who loses.”
The situation now was a little different from what it was before, but it was nevertheless the same; it’s aiming at me.
There’s no reason for me to be angry, because destroying my reputation does not diminish my fortunes.
When it comes to being possessed by evil spirits, there were plenty of ways to explain. But I wondered if I had to.
Rather, it could be an opportunity for me.
“It doesn’t matter if someone who doesn’t know me curses at me or not. I don’t have enough time to even care about them.”
The moment I said those words without thinking, two pairs of eyes turned to me at the same time.
“Why are you guys looking at me that way”
It was cute that they both held my hand and looked at me with dazed eyes, but I reflexively frowned.
“You guys are acting like this again.”
“It’s because you act like that.”
“Aren’t you guys cute?”
“Cute, but gross.”
Lisandro’s concerning gaze was over, but Frey’s wasn’t. I had no idea how to cut off his sticky gaze at me.
As I got up to stray away from the burdensome gaze and sit on the other side of the sofa, I accidentally stepped on the hem of my dress.
The moment I was about to fall forward,
I felt his firm body behind my back and at the same time, he gently embraced me in his arms.
When I turned my head, I saw Frey smiling sweetly at me.
