That was certainly no ordinary lightning for it to be able to penetrate the Pope’s domain and strike his body.

Lilith smelled an extremely familiar aura on it. It was the same aura that had caused her to experience countless sufferings. The pain it caused Lilith was second only to the changes in her physical body.

The lightning contained the laws of the gods, and it definitely came from those two b̲i̲t̲c̲h̲y goddesses.

At the same time, Lilith was giving the Pope a strange look. She could tell that he was a high-ranking figure from the church at first glance. Yet, he got turned into charcoal by his own goddess’ lightning. Just what did he do?

The Pope also wanted to ask the same question.

Ever since he became the Pope, he had been prudent in every action and diligent in his work. Even if his work had no merit, it was still hard work. So why did he get struck by lightning?

Why did he get struck by lightning?

A thought suddenly flashed across the Pope’s mind and he remembered the oath he just swore a few minutes ago: “O’ Goddess in heaven, the 132nd Pope of the Luminous Theocracy swears that he shall never do anything bad against Thea’s friends, Lilith and Sae. Otherwise, I shall be struck by lightning.”

Could it be that…

The Pope snapped his head back and saw Thea staring at the two blasphemous villains with her eyes wide in disbelief.

“Thea…they…”

After a moment of silence, Thea nodded with reddened eyes. “They are Lilith and Sae.”

The Pope felt a burst of anger stuck in his chest as he struggled to breathe.

“B-But how could they do this kind of thing? They rescued me before and weren’t even bothered by my constitution. Not only that, they treated me… like a friend…”

Thea fiddled with the hem of her skirt as her voice grew softer in volume. After all, seeing was believing. The two friends she had just made destroyed the Goddess statue, which was a symbol of her and many other believers’ beliefs.

The more she thought about it, the sadder she got. She then started to sob quietly.

Lilith leaned closer to Sae and whispered, “Hey Sae, I think we made Thea cry.”

“Don’t get me involved in this. Lady Lilith, Thou were the one who did all this alone.”

“Ehhhh, don’t sweat about the details. I feel bad to actually make Thea cry.”

“This is my first time hearing that Lady Lilith would feel bad about something. But I think this isn’t the time to talk about this. We should seize the opportunity and escape now. Even if this old man can’t do anything to us, I am sensing many other powerful presences approaching quickly.”

Sae looked up at the sky and continued, “I don’t think any good will happen when that thing above our head falls.”

It was a huge meteorite falling down from the sky with a bright tail of light.

“Why do Thea’s mood swings always invite disasters like a falling meteorite? This is getting old.” Lilith exclaimed with the red flame in the sky reflected in her eyes.

“Maybe it’s because there is no other commensurate disaster to happen on the ground. Wait a minute. How can Lady Lilith still calmly talk about boring things like this here?!”

“It’s not a boring thing. Isn’t life like this? When you put together countless seemingly boring things, you end up finding it rather interesting as a big picture. This is why I’ll never miss any things that are seemingly boring but are actually not.”

“Regardless if they’re boring or not, we won’t be able to continue living without them.”

“Rest assured, I just took out the demigod ranked spatial scroll, [Origin Annihilation], that mother gave me. If they dare to force us any further, we will bring them down along with us.”

“That doesn’t assure me at all! It just means that we’ll still die!!” Sae exclaimed in distress.

A light flashed across Lilith’s eyes. After thinking for a moment, she suddenly picked up the now severed head of the Goddess statue and walked toward Thea.

The Pope seemed to be on alert, but didn’t do anything. He was just putting his guard up in case Lilith tried to do something against Thea.

Lilith handed the Goddess’ head to Thea. “Believe it or not, this was only an accident.”

Thea stared blankly at Lilith with her reddened eyes.

“Since this statue was made by the Goddess herself, then it should be restored if you put this back in place right?”

Thea nodded to her.

Lilith smiled at her. “That’s a relief. I’m sorry to have caused trouble and even made you cry.”

While saying that, Lilith bowed to Thea deeply as Sae looked at them like she had just come home one day and discovered her entire family dead. “I’m sorry.”

“Eh… Y-You don’t need to be sorry. Since it was an accident, I’m sure the Goddess will definitely forgive you.”

“I’m relieved to hear that. But since I’ve made a mistake like this, I am too ashamed to stay here any longer.” Lilith patted Thea on her shoulder. “You should stop crying too, for the sake of those that have to stop the falling meteorite for you.”

“Yeah.” Thea responded while forcibly squeezing back the tears that were going to fall.

“Well then, I’m leaving now.” Lilith waved, then turned around to leave without any reluctance.

“Umm…” Thea suddenly called out to Lilith. “Are we… still friends?”

“Of course…” Lilith turned her head slightly then smiled gently at her. “We will be friends forever.”

“Alright, friends forever!” Thea finally couldn’t hold back her tears that came out like streams of waterfalls. The sky turned brighter and brighter. The experts from church who just arrived on the scene had no choice but to soar into the sky to stop more falling meteorites.

Lilith left without looking back, under the sky full of falling meteorites. She went back to Sae and woke her up with a slap on her back. “What are you zoning out for? Let’s leave quickly.”

Sae shuddered all over, then closed her gaping mouth. “Oh.”

Seeing Lady Lilith apologizing was probably the most frightening thing she’d ever seen ever since she awakened.

A ripple in space opened up and a spatial door appeared out of thin air.

Since it was a random spatial scroll, no one knew where the door would lead to.

The Pope hesitated for a long time, and finally gave up the idea of stopping them from leaving. After all, they were Thea’s friends.

“Alright, you go first.”

“Huh?!” Sae’s hair was suddenly standing on its end. Every time Lady Lilith was running away, she was always the one bringing up the rear. So why was she asking her to go first this time?

She glanced at the Goddess statue next to the spatial gate. Could it be…

Before Sae could ask, Lilith had kicked her into the door.

“Don’t dawdle!”

Lilith dusted her hands as the smile on her face grew twisted.

(Say no to content thief!)

She already had the broken sword in her hands.

How naive of you to think that I’d leave without accomplishing anything! I, Lilith, am someone who doesn’t give up until I reach my goal!

Before anyone at the scene could even react, Lilith’s hands turned into two afterimages as she swiped the Goddess statue across her chest.

She stored the two chunks of items that she just sliced off into her Storage Ring, then turned around. The corner of her lips curled into a smile as she gave the tens of thousands of believers in the Luminous Theocracy, the Pope and the saintess a middle finger.

“Take a good look at the real appearance of your Goddess.”
