The ideal age for marriage for women in this world was around 18 to 20 years old, and I was right in the middle now.
Worried about me being lonely for the rest of my life, the villagers encouraged me to get married, but I had no intention of doing so at this point in my life.
I had a vague idea that I would like to get married someday, in either world, but I was still not quite sure.
“Even so, the Saintess is a delicate person, isn’t she? Ah, I wonder if her atmosphere change sharply when she uses magic?”
“Hmm, I’m not sure… Um, speaking of which, do you know anything about the previous saintess?”
I had always wondered how I had been treated after my sudden disappearance.
Somehow, I had missed the timing to ask, so I decided to ask her now with the right topic.
Aunt Betty immediately covered my mouth with her hands and looked around in a panic.
“Hey, Nina-chan! Do you want to be imprisoned!?”
“Ah, Nina-chan came from another country, didn’t you? No wonder you don’t know… All right.
In this country, you must never talk about the former saintess.”
Having finally freed my mouth, I asked the quietly speaking Aunt Betty again.
I was concerned both about the absolute prohibition against talking about the former saint, i.e., me, and about the overly deafening word “imprisonment.”
Eventually, Aunt Betty secretly whispered into my ear.
“I heard that the first prince, Alvin-sama, said that anyone who mentions the former saintess’ name will be imprisoned.”
I gasped in disbelief.
Apparently, during the past two years, I had become a person whose name must not be mentioned.
Why was this happening? I didn’t remember doing anything to Alvin-sama at all.
Was it because I had left this world without any notice? However, after having worked so hard to defeat the Demon King, it was hard to believe that this was the only reason.
“Ah, that’s right.
He also said that the former saintess will be captured as soon as he finds her, and he won’t let her out again.”
Did that mean that I would be sentenced to life imprisonment as soon as I was found? I was labeled as a terrible sinner.
Alvin-sama, who was a member of the royal family, was now the furthest person from me, a village girl, and it seemed unlikely that I would even get a chance to clear up the misunderstanding.
In the first place, it was doubtful that a cute word such as ‘misunderstanding’ could even be used.
If I was imprisoned just for mentioning my name, I couldn’t imagine what would happen to me as a former saintess.
Would I be spared of the torture? It was scary.
“Nina-chan? You look very pale, but it’s okay.
We just don’t have to talk about this anymore.”
“Y-Yes, that’s right…”
“I don’t know where the former saintess is, but you absolutely mustn’t get involved with her.
She could be a potential sinner.”
I nodded my head and inwardly wondered if I might need to leave the country to live.
