sed her excitement, stood up, and faced the statue with a bright smile. She stretched her body, which had been sore from the position she held for so long.

Just as she was about to leave, a voice rang from behind one of the pillars.

”What are you doing here, Saintess? ”

It was the Third Paladin, Aceras.

Like Cardinals, Paladins were assigned a number that determined the authority of the rank they had. Kieran, who she constantly fought with in her previous life was awarded the title First.

”Just offering my daily prayers, Third Paladin. ”

The previous Serenia liked Aceras. He was a master at sweet talk and flattery, and always buttered up to Serenia like no other. Honestly, it sometimes crossed the boundaries of respect.

He was a womanizer through and through. Women from all backgrounds would swoon over his charismatic presence and appearance. That same charm worked on the past Serenia, but that would stop now.

”Hmm… Should I believe that? ” Instead of accepting her answer, Aceras raised the question.

”What do you mean? ”

”You mightve not realized it, but Ive stood here for quite some time. Youve been kneeling for at least twenty minutes, opening and closing your eyes with one minute intervals. Your expressions change every time you repeat the cycle. Saintess, care to explain what all that is about? ”

”..I believe I have the right to keep some of my matters private. I just had a very long and lovely chat with the El. The contents of it, you have no rights to pry about. Its quite rude of you to intrude like this. ” Serenia tried her best to emulate a saintly attitude while still rebuking the man with a firm tone.

Serenia didn want to stay inside the room for longer, so she hurriedly walked towards the exit. Before she was able to escape, Aceras words caught her attention.

”One more thing, dear Saintess… Your magic, hasn it gotten stronger? ”

Aceras expression was as if he had found out the discovery of the century.

Serenia widened her eyes. She turned around and took a deep breath.

Calm down. I made sure to not speak out loud. Even though he mightve been here from the start, he wouldn know. Serenia convinced herself.

”I think you mightve been mistaken. During my prayers, I tend to get deep in trance, so my magic mightve fluctuated and caused a misunderstanding. ” Serenia explained.

”Is that so~? Then, I apologize. I was just worried about the wellbeing of our precious Saintess, you see? ” Aceras chuckled. ”Well then, have a good day, my lady. ”

With her heartbeat pumping faster than ever, she eloped from the scene and returned to her room. She immediately jumped onto her bed and let out a stressed groan.

”That was dangerous! I let my guard down. This body doesn have the same abilities as I did.. At all. ”

Back then, sensing presences within a hundred meters of her reach was nothing to her. It came off as unintentional, and she never had to act on it. However, the same couldn happen with Serenia.

As a result, she wasn able to sense Aceras presence and let this happen.
