The Oracle’s Saint was fake, and the fake deserved to be expelled from the sacred temple.

In front of the fragile being who fell into the world without any protection, the first prince of the empire appeared and reached out. She had to hold his hands.

“You don’t have to worry about anything. I’ll take care of you.”

Not knowing that the affectionate man was having thoughts, blinking his eyes and imagining her spreading her legs.

I thought it was somewhat strange . When everything collapsed and abandoned her, He appeared as if it had all been organized.

“Why do you keep crying, Dear Saint?”

“….”

“I’m not saying I’m going to kill you.”

The maniac who desires to possess and swallow her all.

Their relationship is the embodiment of the so called "toxic love".
Spoiler

The ending is a bit messed up because of their own thoughts to each other like can't they just love each other normally without being a red flag or just start their relationship again without being toxic.

[collapse]
Idk what proper reaction should I put in my face after reading the last chapter like what the fridge. Well anyway, Fl's character development is great even though sometimes she's a bit dumb but the story is great and I had even read the other book titled "Be Indulged." 😌

I like the ML, but I can't bring myself to do the same to the FL.

... more>>
Spoiler

So, the ML saved her from the fate of being married to the barbarians by getting her out of the Temple, but then the FL cried out injustice and said he deceived her and took everything away from her.

The ML rescued her from being r*ped, but then she said that it was part of the ML's plan to get her.

The ML gave up the throne for her, sheltered her and loved her, but the FL said it had nothing to with her cause she didn't ask for it.

The ML protected her from the abuse of the Hight Priest, pampered her, and loved her, but she said that the ML treated her as a pet.

When the ML was seducing her, she pleaded 'please', when the ML asked her 'please what?', her reply was to grind her hips against his cr*tch.

When the ML guarded her and left someone to protect her, she said that she was never free and just locked up in a larger cage.

When the ML gave up everything for her, she was disgusted and said he was just treating her as a doll.

When the ML rescued her she cursed him, said she hated him, and was disgusted by him, yet she still slept and happily moaned under him.

When she gave herself up to her lust and desire, she said the ML seduced her and she had sinned and violated the God's teaching.

Okay the ML did everything willingly for her and it was none of her business. However, if she didn't like him, why take all those things for granted? Don't say she was threatened cause if she doesn't want it, no one can force her cause the ML loved her very much. If she doesn't like the ML, why use his protection and act like an abandoned lover when he let you go? Why is it always the ML's fault, when clearly all he did was to love her. If this was the other way around, the woman would be praised for her 'genuine' love, yet when it was a guy he was just 'possessive' and 'forcing' her.

Yes, the ML did those things voluntarily and she never asked for it, but if she didn't like him why doesn't she just cut off all ties once and for all? She was so brave that she can even threaten him with her life. So why not just end it all together? If she didn't like it, there's no need to accuse the ML for something he didn't do. All the ML did was for her and to protect her, but all he got was look of despise, disgust, and hypocritical smile everytime cause she's always pretending to be 'a doll in cage'.

I say, all she does is nothing. She was always the first to give up and had the attitude of 'I succumb to my fate'. She was so ignorant to think that everyone is so good, but if weren't for the ML's help, who knew whether she could still be alive? I understand that she wants to be free, but freedom is something only for those with capability. Say, how can she be free when all she does is to give up to fate and be indecisive?

I don't like her at all, she gives off the aura of the white lotus b*tch 'Saint'. She always made it look like the ML forced her to be with him, but the truth is, she had nowhere to go and was helpless, the ML provided her shelter, but she made it look bad like the ML is a horrible villain. If weren't for the ML she might've been ripped apart by men who lusted for her. He did so many things silently because he was afraid of breaking her if she discover that everyone in the Temple she grew up with weren't good people, yet she said he deceived her. Like, f*ck he didn't deceive her, all he did was to keep those filthy things hidden from her 'pure self'.

Once again, I repeat, although he did those thing voluntarily, she shouldn't accept his help if she felt he was disgusting. If she wanted to be free, do it with her own capability and stop relying on the ML to achieve her goals. I can't help but think that she was really a b*tchy 'Saint' because she always act hypocritically pure, and always give vague answer to the ML like saying yes and no at the same time.

If she didn't want to be with the ML, that's fine, he deserves someone better. But wth, is wrong with her always blaming the ML for everything he did for her? I understand if she think he was toxic, okay go ahead then and leave him. But what's up with her blaming almost everything that happened to her to the ML? Was it so difficult to admit that she was also at fault?

I get that she was raised in the Temple and was hailed as a 'Saint', that's why she had the mindset of being 'pure' and 'naive'. However, the ML also grew up in the Palace, and raised to be the 'Emperor'. What does an Emperor mean? It means absolute power as a ruler, he can get whatever he wanted yet he gave it up just for her. He was trying to be someone 'fit' for her, he always was trying to understand what to do to make her happy, yet the FL was so 'ignorant', 'pure', and 'naive' that she always think the ML is deceiving her. She can believe what the Priest who betrayed her, yet always so disgusted to listen to the ML. Say, if she wasn't a b*tch, what is she?

In my opinion, she doesn't deserve ML. The ML deserve someone better than a hypocritical white lotus 'Saint'.

Dont read this novel expecting a fluffy sweet romance. The romance in here is quite toxic and dark. In all honesty, I just want the FL to be free and happy, I dont want her to be with the ML.

... more>>
Spoiler

From the comments I've read, it doesnt seem that most people have a problem with the ML which is quite disturbing considering how toxic he is. Yes, maybe compared to the other people in the FL's life, hes more genuine but he still sucks as a person. I dont care that he doesnt realise that he loves her and that he shows his love in a twisted way but that doenst justify his treatment of the FL. It was especially hard for me to read the scene where he brutally r*pes her after she runs away from him. Cause of that, unless his character completely changes, I will never root for him. All I hope is for the FL to harden her personality and be free from him.

[collapse]

The novel is interesting and I like how the author went about the relationship. It's not the typical yandere story. <<less

A lot of people say that FL is really selfish because she keeps on denying the actions that ML has done for her out of love. I think... they’re forgetting that he’s really yandere and manipulative. Or maybe he got redeemed in the later chapters because I’m only on chapter 7. However, my verify first impression is that he is VERY MANIPULATIVE.

... more>>
Spoiler

Let me say, chapter 2+... FL is drugged with aphrodisiac. ML could have just straight up f*cked her if he wanted or he could have just left her alone to suffer, or maybe find a doctor to get an antidote somehow. BUT NO! He literally lies to her. FL doesn’t want to have s*x with him because she thinks it’s shameful and is literally just waiting for a physician to arrive. In fact, her hopes were even up when ML tells her that everything was fine now and he’s already called the physician. But, that’s a f*cking lie. He was so f*cking happy when his servant came in to say that the only physician in town was out of town. Like WTF! The description the author tells you literally alludes that there is most likely a doctor in town and he’s acting in order to be able to sleep with FL. Not only that, he was very persistent in asking her if she really wanted to suffer alone when he was there and could help her. Literally even giving her a comparison of whether she wanted to be f*cked by him or by Logan instead. He’s f*cking brainwashing her while she’s not sober.

Second situation, which happens probably chapter 6 or 7. FL is ready to leave the capital. But ML does his best to persuade her to not go, listing many reasons why she shouldn’t go. He goes past boundaries of what a normal person would usually do. Not only that, the maid that gives to serve FL, Paula, literally fears having FL leave the mansion. Paula literally stated in the narration that FL was basically in house arrest and ML made known to Paula that FL must not know she is being imprisoned in his mansion. Otherwise, Paula would face bad consequences.

These two situations alone show you his manipulation. A lot of people say he saved her because he loved her and sh*t and that she should be grateful that he saved her and shouldn’t be dissing him and shit. f*ck, she literally does have a good reason to get pissed at him. He literally lied to her just so that he can possess her! Yes, nothing bad happens to her if she decides to run away or leave him. BUT! Bad things happen to the people near her! If FL learned any of his shit, she really does have an adequate excuse to speak out on why she wanted freedom. Just because he loves her doesn’t mean that he can just control her entire world.

[collapse]

Anyways, even though ML’s yandere sh*t is pretty dark - this is usually my genre, so I don’t hate it. And even though he is very possessive, he does his best to retain a pretty good moral because he thinks that a positive face on FL makes him happier than seeing her sad. However, there are still times where we see him showing that he does kind of like seeing FL with a very bad face. So yes, my rating is high. I dig this shit, even if ML is yandere AF.

Anyways, I just wanted to clarify on the other reviews that people wrote cause I think this really needed to be justified. Of course, FL is also wrong on some parts. But please understand her history.

Spoiler

FL is conservative due to the fact that she is suppose to be the Saint. She was raised by the church since she was 13-14 years old and was kicked out with a bad reputation when she was 20-21 years old. She was literally forced upon with new education and moral boundaries by the church when at her young age, already had some of her own core values. This is why she shows conservatism and yet is also willing to sleep with ML. My girl is literally confused on what is wrong and right. She doesn’t even know what her future should be like anymore because she always thought she would be the Saintess until the day she died. FL is not really innocent or ignorant, but rather just confused. She’s confused about her future, why she has to do things, and whether they are important for her to continue.

She also has no family since she was forcibly taken away. Her family did face a huge remuneration though from giving their daughter to the church. In this case, I do think the ML is quite valid in stating that her family might not even be at the same old town anymore. However, the worst part is, I don’t even think he cares whether her parents are still alive or dead cause he’s trying to get rid of every reason why she could leave his mansion.

[collapse]

Yes, MC might seem to be harsh sometimes. But ML deserves to be tr*shed on sometimes, too. Even though from what I’ve read so far, he hasn’t done anything TOO humiliating to FL, I feel that he wouldn’t feel any guilt in locking her up if she did try to run away. 🤷‍♀️Just saying.

This is still a good story though. Smut scenes are also f*cking hot. (As an avid smit reader.) <<less

This story was a bit frustrating to read. I don't like both ML and MC equally. ML was a manipulative yandere while MC was undecisive woman. I also had to read their chasing game throughout the story and it's a bit exhausting to read.

... more>>
Spoiler

MC ran away from ML, ML chase after her and then they had s*x. MC ran away again, ML chase after her and they had s*x. That cycle was repeated for several times already.

[collapse]

I don't think their relationship was healthy to begin with so I'm glad when MC decided to leave him but:

Spoiler

She kept entangled with him again and again until in the end, she decided to start anew with ML like they never had any past together. Well, it's easier to say than done because the past was there, unless they lost their memories, it's impossible to forget about it. One day, those memories could be a time bomb for their relationship. Better face it bravely than pretend to forget it.

I'm fascinated 😍

The storyline so far is good and am still anticipating more. I liked the MCs. If we talk about the FL's behavior, she's normal. Not so witty nor naive just being realistic. The ML, typical supportive partner. Kind and nice in front of FL but twisted to those who slander her. And most importantly, better smut h.e.h.e.h.e

Started out ok with a naïve FL being led about by the Church, her closest confident in the church, and then by ML.

Although the smut was hot, the characteristics of the ML & FL made the ending some what distasteful.

After being submissive and obedient to the church until she gets kicked out, the FL becomes submissive and obedient to her supposed savior, the Crown Prince. Once she finds the out the truth or her supposed misguided truth, she becomes angry at everyone and is constantly running away to live a... more>> life that only she can choose for herself.

Basically, the story then revolves around only the FL's freedom of choice, and to hell with everyone else's choice. Which completely subverts all her natural kindness characteristic that grew up with, now she only selfishly thinks of herself and refuses to believe others.

As for the ML, he gave up being the Crown Prince, he gave up being the Duke, and she even burnt his mansion down while he was still lying in bed poisoned. He basically gave up every thing so that she can be happy finding a normal job and living her own life. Not to mention, he even saves her by drinking poison for her. But none of that is enough for her. She even doesn't completely cure his poison because she doesn't trust the ML and wants to leave a card in her hand to control him.

It's sweet that the ML changed his ways and is trying to win her love. But he's had to change everything about himself to fit her needs. At this point, it's not love anymore. She treats him just like a boy toy and that's it. She is always going on about freedom of choice, yet she doesn't give one to the ML either. It's either her way or no way.

The more towards the ending I got, the FL's behavior to me became more and more reprehensible and despicable. <<less

Spoiler

Philia, is kind of naïve but is a genuinely sweet person trying to figure out what she should do with her life now and is quite lost on what to do. She likes the ML but she doesn't want to be taken advantage of him or be taken advantage of. She doesn't have much to her personality, but the story shows pretty expressively that it's due to her being raised in the church for so long that she doesn't know what she likes. I do wish the best for her and usually I'm always with the mindset of "Stay with the ML! He loves you!", but honestly I wouldn't be upset if she did decide to leave him. He is toxic in a very loving way, so I think it should be her decision of whether or not she wants to stay with him. I guess I'll find out more once more chapters come along.

[collapse]

The ML
Spoiler

Claude, is the legit definition of a yandere, manipulative, uncaring of everyone but our FL, mu*derous, narcistic, possessive and incredibly doting on our FL. He doesn't really understand his own emotions; he seems to understand that he wants Philia, but doesn't understand why other than she stood out from the crowd. I think his EQ is very low, but the story shows his POV of trying to understand his own emotions as well as Philia's, so points for trying to be better. After the most recent chapters, I'm not sure how to feel about him literally manipulating her entre life, but he did make her realize just how one sided her relationships were and that everyone took her for granted. At the same point, he also took her away from everything she knew and made her feel worthless just so she would depend on him instead of all the shallow people taking care of her simply due to her being the saint. So I really don't know how I feel about it, I understand his point of view, but he also pisses me off a little. I want more chapters because I want more explanations on his part of why he is doing this.

This is too spicy!! I love that the FL is so innocent and naive.

The ML, boooooy!! He is the yandere type!! He's a dom (iyk what I mean 😉) !!

As for the story line, I like it. As there were still no plot twists (so far), I can say that the smut makes the storyline better. The prologue hooked me to reading this.

And lastly, the SMUT!!! Dang!!! That was just too hot!! It was really intense.

Overall, I just hope that the future plot twists would hook me more and more.

Her change wasnt even bad ass, and in all honesty its not realistic in the slightest

For most people it's usually all or nothing either she stays with him properly or leaves despite how much she loves him

But to me the end was just like two sick people playing house I hate it, to me though they should have fixed it all the way to the end.

Finally I feel safe when I see the tags before I read a book so I can prepare my mind for what to expect and this not so happy ending didnt sit right with me 😫

The story was draggy in the middle. It was interesting enough that I kept reading until around Ch35, but then I grew tired and just skipped 6 or 7 chapters and went to the last 4. Ending isn't satisfying but as one commenter said, realistic. Translator did an excellent job. Smut was okay but was kinda repetitive.

The plot is all good. But the toxicity relationship is far beyond my imagination. Idk, at first I thought the toxic one is the male lead but later it changes to FL. FL seems toxic, Eventhou the ML tried his best to be with her. But she just can't accept it. She connect all damn thing that happened to her to ML doing. But its not, glad the ending they both have their own consideration

Update:

Sighhh, even though stories like these are my guilty pleasure (Like I'm not even joking I lasted this long even though the male lead did all these things to her), I've noticed that she went from naive to s*upid and I understand the comments now... Aw Man

Granted he made a mistake hiding things from her, but she gets decieved easily by that crazy priest, and she hates the ML even though he saved her life, which in my opinion was bound to be doomed, not to mention he gave up not only being an Emperor for her, but also gave up being the Grand Duke, so he gave up being a nobel for her s*upid toxic self, and he's been telling her he loves her, and she keeps on asking for a reson, and when he says I just like you, she cosiders that he failed her s*upid test, I mean is there anyone this dumb? Why does there have to be a reason to like somebody, that's just you being annoying, and worst of all, she's using the poison made by that crazy priest against the ML, keeping him hostage, and playing the tragic heroine, I really hate her.

but she learned about the ways of the world & became kinda independent.

And these people hating her for not completely getting rid of the poison in ml's body? Excuse me sir, should I remind you just how much she suffered while the ML was locking her up? I'd for one would've liked to have a plan b in case he went berserk again.

[collapse]

So in short, I wouldn't say she is the strong type of fl, but she is trying her hardest & her actions are for most parts, understandable.

Well, all in all I'd say the story was so nice. Not dragged on or too fast paced, it gives just the right amount of information & story plot at each chapter. The smut is ever so FINE but doesn't have the entire focus of the story & the plot isn't sacrificed for it.

The ending is a bit unusual but hits all the right spots for it. Depends on the reader to choose, ig <<less

The story of the saint and a prince is not a cute or fluffy story but a toxic story and complicated relationship however I guarantee that you'll love it till the end because the author give a positive, simple and beautiful ending.

Spoiler

At the ending there's a festival commemorating at the village of the FL live & work at. While the FL walking around alone, she found a mansion and stared at it that she can't help but looked at the beautiful scenery of the mansion. She suddenly recalled a rumored that there's a rich man build a mansion at their village. She wondered who lives there but decided to leave because she doesn't want to be seen peeking at the place rudely but until someone grabbed her. She look at the person who grabbed her however didn't expect it's her ex-lover, the ML. The ML started a conversation like a young man love at first and courted (flirt too) the beautiful girl (FL) he like while pretending he doesn't know her that it's the first he met her. Even though she wanted to leave and avoid him but she play along with him like an ordinary girl and met a young rich man that courted her because in her heart she wanted to feel that as she dream of.

P.S. The last script of the final chapter, the FL asked the ML name even though she know because both of them wanted to start all of over again but a new meeting and lovely relationship too.🥰🥰🥰 It was soooo cute and simple but it give butterfly feelings because I feel like I'm her in her POV instead 😍😍😍

I honestly didn't think about rereading this novel. I even forgot which chapter I was only up to. It just got me too frustrated with a tinge of disgust towards the ML. The reason I decide to reread this was after I've read Be Indulged, by the same author.

I think the author's style of writing is quite unique... Definitely not everyone's cup of tea, and would have to read it with a grain of salt. Despite that, there's still beauty in it. I especially love that the author's works are... more>> not as lengthy as others; something you can just finish reading in a few hours, and not feel like you've been up. <<less
