Sei, a 20-year-old office worker, finds herself abruptly transported to a whole new world through a summoning ritual. However, there’s a twist; instead of the expected single “Saint” who would combat dark magic, two individuals are summoned. To Sei’s surprise, everyone seems to favor the other girl over her.
Unperturbed, Sei decides to lead her path by leaving the royal palace and using her newfound magical abilities to establish a business specializing in potions and cosmetics. Sei discovers that this alternate life might not be so bad after all. Yet, the one question remains. Will her supposed Sainthood return to complicate her newfound happiness?
