I Stole the Heroine’s Holy Grail – Chapter 102

After completing all the preparations, Adelia was spending her time waiting at a room called ‘Purification room’. 

I’m free, but it’s not bad.

She recalled the times she was busy being called by the priests here and there. She shook her head thinking she can’t do this again. 

Adelia checked the clock, which was the only decoration in the white room. Except for the clock, nothing else could be put in the room. Thinking about it, clocks can be found everywhere in the Holy Land.

Perhaps because Vishna is a time-related god, the church’s affection for clocks was overflowing. The relics are also in the form of watches.

20 minutes to go.

She just needs to endure a little more, after that she can say goodbye to the holy land and return to the empire to wait for Berg and retrieve the relics.

I have to collect the rest, but I still have a long way to go.

Adelia sighed quietly and made plans for the future.

Then, a small disturbance came over the door.

“What is it?”

There isn’t anyone who would visit her now. Ivan was away, so it’s not him. At best, maybe it’s Bishop Leia.

Adelia approached the door and asked.

“What’s going on?”

“It’s……, the saint has come.”

Hestine?

Adelia opened the door with a slight wrinkle in her brows. Then she saw Hestine, who was unable to do this or that.

“Adelia-nim!”

“Oh! You can’t come out!”

“It’s all right. We can stand and talk like this.”

“……that’s true.”

The paladin, who was guarding the front door, stepped aside with an awkward face. He looked as if he was saying, “Is this really okay?”

Adelia smiled quietly and turned her head to look at Hestine.

“What brings you to me? You looked like you were in a hurry.”

“Ah… Well, first of all, I’m sorry! I think I can tell you later if it’s not now.”

“Do you have anything to give me?”

“Yes…! Please accept it!”

Hestine closed her eyes tightly and held out a precious box with both hands. Adelia was stunned. Hestine looked like she was confessing.

“May I ask what this is?”

“I think I just apologized before without giving you anything.”

“Hmm.”

So this is an extension of the apology?

Adelia agonized. Would it be better to receive this gift or refuse it?

“To be honest, it’s a little burdensome.”

“Ah…yeah, as expected, right? But it’s not that great. I just bought it because it was pretty.….”

Hestine’s eyes moistened. Adelia was startled for a moment. For her, Hestine’s tears were a kind of jinx. Things never worked out for her whenever she saw those tears.

“Sigh…”

“Sorry, I’m sorry……. I was so selfish…… Ugh.”

Oh, then I can’t say no.

Of course, there was no eye to see, but if Hestine goes back crying like this, someone will definitely see her, and if it is known that Hestine went to see her, words will come out among the priests. The temple may become a force she needs in the future. So she wanted to avoid such a difficult situation as much as possible.
