I Was Forced by the Saintess to Marry the Ugly God - Chapter 9
Volume 1 Chapter 9
“I’m… being bullied…so that’s why you hurriedly…”
Today had been the most confusing day for him.
Today, he also couldn’t stop laughing.
Ugh…That sticky, mud-like body’s jiggling so happily!
It was so embarrassing, I could feel my face heating up as I shuddered…
“Why did you misunderstand… He is not a deity that would do such things. He has been treating me really well.”
…Well, I guess it was a no-brainer!
We’re talking about Adoracion-sama – the second greatest deity, after all.
He might be scary, but he was an upright person who disliked injustice and evil.
He wouldn’t bully the weak.
On the contrary, he was the type who would even defend the oppressed.
He was probably worried how the neglected Kami-sama was faring, so he came to check on him.
Adoracion-sama probably treated him as his subordinate; contrary to his appearance, he was quite the caring person.
‘I misunderstood Adoracion-sama so rudely…’
So glad I didn’t blurt anything unnecessary before him.
In all fairness, of course, I could only think that way during the moment when I saw the incompetent god, who looked like a dirt mountain, and the second greatest god, who had his eyes narrowed, standing side by side.
“… That’s because, Kami-sama, you look like you were trembling. You’re just chatting, but you had an uneasy atmosphere, too…..”
Even humans threw rocks at you, too.
Personality-wise, you won’t get mad even if the saintesses fled away from you, either.
“…So you were worried about me.”
Kami-sam heaved a deep sigh, seemingly tired from all that laughing. He seemed to have finally calmed down.
“This has been the first time Everyone would leave this room, never to return.
— Eleanor-san, is it? Why did you return to this room?”
“Why, you say…”
“I already said that I won’t hold it against you if you did not return. All the previous Saintesses had done so. Some became the saintesses of other deities, probably due to negotiations with the Shrine.”
Kami-sama’s voice was low, with a tinge of darkness in it.
It was a question infused with loneliness, much like this secluded room.
“There was no need to be the partner of such an ugly thing — why did you still return?”
My brows furrowed as I stared at Kami-sama.
…That is, well, when I was asked whether to become his partner or not, I also thought about declining.
Why should they force me to draw the unfortunate lot just so Amalda could become the saintess of the supreme god? — I was still thinking about that, now.
But leaving for good was not an option for me.
Even if he said he wouldn’t blame me repeatedly, it didn’t matter.
“…A saintess will never abandon her kami-sama, right?”
In reality, I was not a saintess, though.
“I maybe like this, but once, being a saintess was my goal…Well, frankly, I also thought it would be nice if I got assigned to a beautiful god. But, my heart was set on becoming a saintess even if I didn’t know who my partner deity would be.”
But I didn’t become one!
Oh, let’s set aside those grudges for now —
I acquired knowledge about being a saintess during my days training to become one.
“It doesn’t matter which deity. it is because he chose me, I want to serve him sincerely. It’s precisely because of this that I aimed to become a Saintess. Of course, my partner is your divine self – Crail-sama.”
Kami-sama asked me ‘why?’, but actually, if I was in his stead, I would rather ask the saintesses who fled ‘why?’
After all, a saintess should possess a pure heart.
They were chosen as saintesses, yet I had been disregarded.
Couldn’t help feeling mortified that a person who would shirk was chosen, yet I wasn’t.
My pride and resentment against them were also reasons for remaining here.
“Since things are already like this, then might as well give my all… Well, I’m Amalda – Saintess Amalda-sama’s proxy after all.”
I picked up the broom that was dropped while saying those words.
Absolutely reluctant to do what Amalda wants, though –
“Nevertheless – even though I’m a proxy, I’m your Saintess now.”
I flashed a bright smile at Kami-sama while gripping the broom.
Ah, but nighttime service was absolutely out of the question!
I have a fiance!
My maiden heart is, as expected, still reluctant!
…Now that I think about it, maybe that’s the reason why I didn’t become the saintess.
