Time-Limited Saintess, You've Been Caught by the Tyrant Once Again - Chapter 1
“Your Majesty and Your Holiness, she’s not the real saint.”
A grand celebration was held in appreciation for all that God has bestowed upon us.
The temple was decorated with colorful silks of gold and silver — symbolizing harvest and divinity. Whether they were members of the royal family, aristocrats, or priests, they were wearing the most splendid and beautiful clothes. The words that came out of the arena praying for peace in the country with the Pope and the saints, who are priests of God, were overwhelming.
However, the shocking statement was suddenly uttered by one of them.
…The Saint is fake?
Everyone shook their heads in dismay at the absurd remark, though the Emperor and the Pope’s expressions did not change. Even the Paladin Maynard, famous for his devotion to the saint, kept his mouth shut instead of being angry.
The most frantic person at this moment was the Saint, Liliana.
Liliana looked at her as she pointed at Elena with a pale expression on her face. She was quivering as if her doom was foretold.
“L-lie! That’s a lie!”
Liliana uttered desperately.
“That woman’s crazy. Capture her, Sir Maynard!”
As if it were her lifeline, Liliana stared at Maynard, but he coldly turned away from her.
“No, this is not…!”
Elena sighed at the sight of Liliana. She has been like that since she was young. Liliana greedily wanted everything. In the end, she coveted the seat of the saint, which was originally Elena’s seat…
And, that was what happened today.
The saint who was like a living god was worshiped by all as the daughter of a supreme and pure god.
She was like a god who came down to the world.
Everyone adored her, and everyone was eager to receive her glance or touch. Women longed for her holiness, and men secretly coveted her… It was something Elena had already experienced once. She tried not to live as a saint in her second life. So, even though Liliana was impersonating a saint, she let it go.
“To Your Majesty the Great Emperor and the Pope, who has the grace of God…”
Elena stepped between them with her graceful gait.
With every step she took, her dark brown hair began to turn into bright platinum blonde. The transformation of a shabby woman who always bowed her head captivated everyone’s attention.
“I’m here to prove myself…”
Elena glanced at the Pope.
As expected, he did not stop her. She did not even notice the unyielding passion in the Pope’s beautiful orange eyes.
“…That I, Elena, is the real saint.”
Saying so, she unbuttoned the buttons that were fastened up to her neck one by one, revealing the divine sigil engraved just above her chest. The dark green crescent inverted pattern was definitely a sacred mark of the saint.
“Are you satisfied now, Arkan?”
Elena gazed up with a calm expression on her face.
A young man with black hair, sitting on the throne with his chin on his hand, was staring at her with her bright ruby eyes that were smeared with a smile.
Arkan, the Emperor who ruled the empire of this country, was wearing a bright red cloak the same color as his eyes. As the beautiful man smiled, an alluring aura, contrary to this chaotic situation that was happening right now, flowed across his face. The exquisite shadow because of his high nose also contributed to the atmosphere.
The red-eyed man was smiling beautifully.
She knew the answer to that smile.
It was a positive answer.
Whether it was her first or second life, he has not changed. Saint Elena has been caught by the crazy Emperor once again.

Following God’s steps, after a revelation was given, the priest set out in search of the prophesied girl at a rural estate.
Not long after, the saint was found.
The girl’s name is Elena.
She was a pretty fifteen-year-old girl with bright platinum blonde hair that stood out among the ordinary people with dull-colored hair. After the four priests gave her a new life different from a commoner, they took her back to the great empire, where the temple was located in the capital.
So, Elena began to live the life of the Saint.
