Chapter 52: The Saintess is Coming
That day, in the afternoon.
A tall werewolf smashed through the stone wall and flew out. 𝘪𝙣𝓃𝒓𝗲𝒶𝗱. 𝐜o𝗺
His body was covered in blood, and his eyes began to roll back.
Only his weak breathing proved that he was still alive at this moment.
Suddenly, a knife mark that seemed to cut through the air slashed past, and the next moment, the werewolf’s body was immediately separated from his body.
Footsteps came from the broken wall.
A tall and handsome young man in red walked out.
It was Monn.
He shook his sleeves and exhaled, “The seventh one.”
Yes, this was the seventh werewolf that Monn had killed since Andrew arranged the work today!
“Lord Monn is mighty! !”
Behind them, the paladins who had slowed down a little finally arrived.
They didn’t know how many times Goldman Sachs had shouted, but they were full of vigor.
Because… they really didn’t use much power.
Basically, with just a wave of Monn’s palm, and the werewolf died.
They could only count the aftermath.
At this time, a bishop ran over.
He first bowed respectfully and then said respectfully, “Cardinal Monn, the Saintess has arrived. His Holiness Pope Andrew has instructed you to go over.”
Monn nodded. “Got it.”
After giving some instructions, Monn appeared in the Holy Church with a spatial walk.
Walking to the hall where Andrew received the guests, Monn gently knocked on the door.
The conversation inside instantly stopped.
“Please come in.”
Andrew’s voice came from inside.
“Your Holiness, Andrew.”
Munn pushed the door open and bowed to Andrew.
Then he looked at the girl standing beside Andrew.
Her golden hair reached her waist like a waterfall, her blue eyes twinkled like stars, and even the loose nun uniform could not hide her proud figure.
A holy sword wrapped in a sky blue scabbard and decorated with a ruby on the golden hilt hung on her waist.
But the first impression she left on Monn was still: Big!
“As for you, you must be Cardinal Monn.” On her head was a silver crown, which shone as she lowered it slightly. She continued with a saintly smile on her lips, “I hear about you often from his Holiness the Pope.”
Munn did not care about the Saintess’s formal greetings. He always felt that the smile of the Saintess was a little forced.
He nodded slightly and looked at Andrew.
Andrew introduced, “This is the Saintess of the righteous sect, Saintess Ace.”
Saintess ace smiled and said, “Just call me Ace.”
Munn greeted him lightly.
Andrew continued, “Munn, this is the first time Saintess is coming to Saint Selwyn. You can show the Saintess around and get to know each other.”
Saintess ace bowed slightly and said, “Thank you for your trouble.”
Then, she turned around and bowed to Andrew, “Your Excellency, Andrew.”
Then, she walked out with Munn, displaying the etiquette of a noble.
After leaving the church, Munn brought Ace to the center of the city.
As soon as they arrived, all the residents in the market were attracted by Ace’s charm.
“Look! That girl is so beautiful!”
“I feel like I’ve seen an angel!”
Ace had experienced a lot of such scenes.
She tucked a strand of blonde hair behind her ear and whispered, “So many people.”
Then, she turned around and stared at Monn with an expectant look. “Can I go for a walk?”
Mon shrugged his shoulders, indicating that he didn’t care.
After all, his job now was to accompany the Saintess. The Saintess could go anywhere she wanted to.
After entering the market, Ace looked like a wild cat hunting for fun. She looked left and right, as if she had never seen anything before in her life.
As she strolled around, Ace suddenly stopped at a stall.
Her eyes were shining as she stared at a starry necklacel.
The necklace was shaped like a drop of water, but there was a starry sky inside. It was like quicksand, changing with the flow of time.
Ace ould not help but squat down, and her fair hand gently picked up the starry necklace.
Seeing this, the stall owner hurriedly said, “Miss, you really have good taste!”
“This starry necklace was crafted by a famous craftsman in the Healer Empire.”
“In order to make this necklace, that master almost used up all his wealth!”
The stall owner’s spittle flew. He wished that he could use his lifetime’s knowledge to describe this ‘precious ‘starry necklace.
Monn was speechless when he saw this.
On the other hand, Ace seemed to believe the stall owner’s nonsense and nodded from time to time.
The stall owner became even more enthusiastic when he saw this.
Perhaps today’s deal would be enough to sustain him for a year!
He began to fantasize in his heart.
Half a day later, the stall owner was almost fuming with rage as he kept on speaking.
Seeing that Ace was still nodding and did not have the slightest thought to ask about the price.
He could not help but ask carefully, “Then, miss, what do you think?”
As he spoke, the stall owner rubbed his hands together.
Ace came to a sudden realization.
She asked generously, “How about 30 shillings?”
“Okay! 30 pounds, 30…”
Before he could finish, he felt that something was not right.
He had said so much that his mouth was almost smoking. In the end, he only got 30 shillings?
He coughed and said hesitantly, “Miss, did you say something wrong?”
Ace frowned. “Is 30 shillings not enough?”
The stall owner was embarrassed. It was impossible to say how valuable this item was.
But he had said so much, and in the end, he had only gotten 30 shillings?
At this moment, he felt a huge disappointment in his heart.
At the side, Ace obviously knew what the stall owner was thinking.
But she was not a fool.
She knew what material this necklace was made of with just a touch.
How could it be worth so much just because he made it sound so precious?
The stall owner knew that it was impossible to scam her, so he said dejectedly, “Alright, Alright, 30 it is. Take it away now!”
He waved his hand as if he was trying to drive away the bad luck.
Ace did not mind. She still liked this style a lot.
She held the necklace and happily dug into her pockets, ready to pay.
However, after digging for a long time, her pockets were cleaner than her face.
Only then did she remember that she did not bring any money with her today.
She turned her head and looked at Monn as if she was asking for help. “Monn, Cardinal I forgot to bring money with me today. Can you help me pay for it?”
Meng en frowned. “I refuse.”
Ace stood rooted to the ground and thought in disbelief, “You refuse? !”
This was the first time she had been rejected.
In the royal city, every Prince took the initiative to buy her things.
Even though she had rejected all of them.
But this was the first time she had experienced such a situation.
She did not feel too good.
But when she saw the stall owner staring at her suspiciously, she could only say awkwardly, “Em, I’ll pay you back!”
“Oh,”s aid Monn as he glanced at her suspiciously.
Only when he saw the ruby on the hilt of her sword did he step forward and pay the stall owner 30 shillings.
Just as Ace heaved a sigh of relief, she heard Monn’s calm voice again, “The interest is 3 shillings a day. Remember to pay me back as soon as possible.”
Ace’s face darkened. The saintly appearance she had maintained for so many years almost broke.
She screamed in her heart.
At this moment, she heard Monn say again.
“Also, I’m off work. You can go back to the sanctuary by yourself.”
After informing her, Monn turned around and left.
Ace stood rooted to the spot for a moment.
What off work? !
Seeing that he was getting further and further away, Ace hurriedly followed. At the same time, she shouted, “I don’t know the way!”
