The Holy Saintess vs. The Maid Who Wants to Climb Ranks (20)
For the next half month, Heidi didn’t make any moves.
Gu Shengyin knew that she had not given up, but was waiting for an opportunity instead.
After the birth of the Crown Prince of the Aoqi Empire, His Majesty the Emperor personally came to ask the Holy Church for a blessing.
His Majesty the Emperor of the Aoqi Empire was Hathaway’s blood-related uncle, and the Crown Prince could also be considered her brother1.
When his Holiness the Pope came to Gu Shengyin with the request, she agreed to travel to the Imperial Palace without hesitation.
The Aoqi Imperial Envoy returned with a face full of joy. It was well-known that the higher the status of the one giving the blessing, the greater the gift the child would receive from the God.
Nowadays, everyone knows that in the entire Holy Church, even the Pope is not comparable to the Holy Saintess in terms of favor from the God of Light. Everyone knows that the Saintess’ scepter was personally bestowed by the God of Light.
On the day of the Crown Prince’s month-old birthday, all the nobles of the Aoqi Empire came to the Imperial Palace.
Gu Shengyin arrived at the hall after bathing and changing clothes.
She wore a robe that was brimming with Light power and had been bestowed by the God of Light, and her hand held the scepter that was personally created by God, as she walked to the side of the Crown Prince.
As dense light power began to condense at her fingertips, Gu Shengyin was preparing to give her blessings to the newborn Crown Prince when a female voice suddenly came from behind.
“Wait! This woman, she does not deserve to bless His Highness!”
Everyone looked with surprise at the source of the voice.
Wasn’t she the Saintess’ maid? Many people recognized Heidi’s uniform.
“Outrageous! Heidi, do you know what you are saying?!” Vivian was the first person to react and sternly berated her.
His Majesty the Emperor of the Aoqi Empire looked at Heidi with dissatisfaction. It was an honor to be blessed by the Saintess. What was this woman doing?

Heidi faced everyone’s questioning and condemnations, sneering in her heart: You guys are now defending her like this, just wait until you feel regret when knowing the truth later.
She stepped out of the crowd and looked at Gu Shengyin with disdain: “I said that Hathaway Louise, this woman, does not deserve to bless the Empire’s Crown Prince. She simply does not deserve to be my Holy Church’s Saintess!”
“Presumptuous!” The Light Vatican’s deep-rooted members, who accompanied Gu Shengyin, were hot with anger after the Saintess’ prestige was openly slandered. This was a great sin.
Gu Shengyin stood amongst the crowd. Her expression was calm as if the person who Heidi was talking about was not her.
This kind of bearing made many people admire her.
Heidi looked at this woman putting on an act. Hmph! Wait and see if you can still keep up this false appearance.
“Respectable Saintess, do you dare to swear to the God of Light that you are still chaste?” Heidi stared straight at Gu Shengyin.
Sure enough, Gu Shengyin had already anticipated that she would do this.
Heidi’s words stunned everyone. The meaning of this maid’s words was that the Saintess had actually… violated the religious precept?
She was the personal maid of the Saintess — since she said so….
Many people had already secretly turned to look at Gu Shengyin with suspicion.
Gu Shengyin faced the accusation and her face was full of indifference. She even smiled softly: “Heidi, you do know how great a sin it is to slander the Saintess in order to destroy the Saintess’ reputation?”
When she said this, Heidi was even more convinced that she was just bluffing.
She was full of confidence and said with a calm face: “I swear to the God of Light above, if I, Heidi, am maliciously vilifying the reputation of the Saintess, let me be bathed in the Holy Fire, and be irredeemable for life!”
Gu Shengyin: Woman, since you are seeking death, I will not stop you.
Aye, since this woman is seeking death, no one will stop her. Smh
