Chapter 230: Her World
"You are here," The Caelian Queen said gently and looked at Yun Xi.
She had known everything.
The Lamia Queen and the Mermaid Queen couldn't refuse the Water God's Apostle. They had strong power and determined will, however, they couldn't resist the Apostle, who was blessed by the god's power.
As the Water God's most loyal people, they had fallen in love with the Apostle at first sight.
They were ten times older than the Caelian Queen, but their experience in love was still as naive as two children.
As for her, she was an innocent girl from many years ago.
As a human, she had carried on the responsibility of handling affairs for a lot of years. She had never thought to marry anybody, because she had decided to devote herself to her belief from the first day she became a priestess.
She was the Queen of Caelian and the High Priestess of all mankind. She couldn't marry anyone.
In fact, the Water God never proclaimed that its priests and priestesses couldn't get married. However, all Water God's High Priestesses were innocent virgins. Even though the Water God didn't mind it, but the first High Priestess never married during her life, and it had become an underlying regulation after that.
Maybe it was because people subconsciously thought that their High Priestesses should be virgins, so they didn't dare to go against people's will.
The priestesses who got married would never be the Water God's human High Priestess.
She was born in the royal family and changed her fate due to her loyal belief to the Water God.
As a girl of royal lineage, she had voluntarily went to be a village priestess, then got promoted step by step and finally became one of the Water God's High Priestesses.
The Lamia Queen and the Mermaid Queen seldom interfered in government affairs. Therefore, she, the Caelian Queen, was the highest ranking priestess who was actually ruling the whole church.
The reason why she could become the Water God's High Priestess was because she was the god's most loyal believer.
Her divine magic was on the top three list of the whole world's history. Besides, her term of office was already over fifty years. No one would doubt if she could become the most excellent High Priestess in the history.
She also thought that she was the most beloved person of the god, because she was even conferred the Water God's Scepter and heard the god's oracles many times.
She even knew that the god was puzzled about this world, because there were things that were out of the god's control. There were big problems that the god couldn't solve.
In this case, she was convinced that she was the god's most favorite priestess, till that day, she saw that man and his silver mask.
For the first time in her life, a strong feeling named "jealousy" rose inside her heart.
Why? Why isn't me? Why is it this person?
I'm the one who can help the god solve the problems. I'm even willing to offer my life to the great Water God.
Indeed, Water God's Apostles had also appeared several times in the past, but they wouldn't appear in front of the public like this Apostle. They were not humans but from an old race. The Water God selected them to investigate the abnormal occurrences in this world.
However, this Apostle was a human, and he had the White Emperor Mask, which represented the highest authority from the Water God. It was really unimaginable for her.
This man was the one who was beloved by the god! After seeing Yun Xi, her faith was shaken.
I'm guilty! I shouldn't doubt my god! She had to kneel in the temple to purge her sins.
"How lucky you are!" The Queen held Yun Xi's hand and kissed the back of his hand.
"What's the feeling like to be loved by a god? It must be a fantastic, heaven like feeling. If possible, I really want to take your place, even if I will go to hell after that. Do you know how envious I am?"
Yun Xi looked at the Queen in surprise. For the first time, he knew the Queen's real feelings.
When he stayed with the Queen before, he only felt a sacred aura from her.
Her temperament was saintly, and inside of her eyes, there were infinite mists. They were the purest energy of faith, so her body wasn't flesh and blood any longer.
Maybe her strength was inferior to the Lamia Queen, but her divine spell was undoubtedly the strongest!
"Is such a jealousy strange? I thought that after I devote myself to the great world, nothing in this world could make my heart shake."
"Since my childhood, I always longed to come here and become the person who is closest to the god."
"Finally, at the age of 25, I achieved my goal of becoming a High Priestess."
"For this, I left my family and abandoned my wealth. After losing everything, I finally came to this place."
"I had never regretted my choice, because I have expected all the difficulties from the beginning." The Queen touched the old bell and remembered her past life.
How many years had passed? What was it like when I was still a young girl?
As the Water God's High Priestess, she was no longer a human after holding the Water God's Scepter in her hand. She had even forgotten her name and was only to be called "the Caelian Queen".
She remembered it now. When she was still a young girl, she once ran and played on the city's streets. She had also had a carefree childhood.
It's strange. Why do I remember these things now?
Maybe it's because I'm getting married.
I will marry this child, the child who was standing in front of me with a clueless look.
