[NTBG] Chapter 21 (1/2): Innocent Carol and Me


Translator: Asada

Editor: Kylerboi- edited

I can’t do anything now that it has been chosen.

It’s sloppy that I left the miracle option open and allowed my sister to use the PC.

“Maybe it’s irreversible……Did I do something wrong?”

My younger sister said, worried.

I am surprised by her but not angry.

“No, it’s rather good because I originally wanted to do it. If you are looking for something then you can look here.”

My sister sat in front of the new PC, and I sat on the old one where the Village of Fate was active. [1]

Will it start at 10:00 am the day after tomorrow? Should I say that I am unhappy? There is no work on that day so I can respond to he event with ease.

I didn’t want to choose it, but If it already happened so there is nothing to regret. I think it was good either way.

Then I should be quick and sleep early today for the day after tomorrow. [2]

My younger sister finished up her internet escapade and returned to her room, so I soon entered the futon to sleep. [3]

There were lots of worries after work today but it wasn’t that bad, mostly because my relationship with my sister has gotten closer. I feel like I can sleep rather well today.
—————————————-

It was eight’o clock when I woke up in the morning. My father and sister have already left for work.

When I got down to the first floor, my mother was there so I decided to have breakfast together with her.

“Yesterday you came back with Sayuki. When did you two get back?”

“I don’t know when I got back. There was a stalker following her yesterday so I went to pick her up.”

“Oh…..!! Did you see the other person face?”

“Unfortunately no.”

When I replied my mother who was standing and questioning me, she sat back with a frown. The previous stalker problem had really bothered my mother, so I wanted to be silent about this but I need to talk as I can’t follow up when I am busy up with work.

“I will protect my sister.”

“Oh, I know.”

Needless to say, I have never done anything like an older brother in the last decade. I don’t think this will have much effects but I need to show a little resolve.

“But there is that incident in the past….so please be careful. You and Sayuki are both important to me.”

“……all right.”

My voice tripped up a bit due to those words from my mother.

It was just few words, but I was inexplicable relieved.

I never thought that I was abandoned, but I guess my doubt has buried deep in my heart.

Maybe it’s part of the reason I didn’t even try to move forwards. There were times when I envied my parents and sister as well as the world.

I must have been rotten from my roots and really considered myself an abandoned and unnecessary existence.

But it was definitely different. My head was too clouded to understand the love of my family.

I ran away from reality and got saved by a game. Can there be such a life?

I didn’t want my mother to see me teared so after I gobbled up my breakfast, I returned to my room without looking up.

I need to make the event day tomorrow a success to thank the villagers.

Should I increase the number of the people using the miracle so there are better chances of survival?

Or should I save it for an emergency?

…..The Temptation of the Evil God was rather troublesome. The villagers appreciation has increased the Fate points by a lot but it havn’t caught up to what it was.

I wonder if there is some good miracle with few Fate points.

While staring the screen while thinking about such a convenient thing my gaze stops at a certain item.

“It was here all along right?”

[Egg Gacha] [4]

I clicked on the item to view the details.

“You can roll the Gacha for free once a month. You can randomly obtain one of the following…bird egg, reptile egg, amphibian egg, monster egg, rare monster egg. Obedient to the first person seen after hatching. You can use it as a pet or you can make it grow and use it as a food.”

There were no disadvantages. I must have missed the free feature when I ignored all the Gacha items.

I am attracted to it for it being free, its just the content seems to be iffy. I don’t know what will hatch after obtaining the egg. However, there should be no problems to the villagers irrespective of what hatches from it.

If a bird is hatched, you can use it for scouting. If it’s a reptile or amphibian, you can bake and eat it. What about pets?….Lizard is no good, but does anyone likes them?

If a monster is hatched it can help in the defense. If it’s a rare one then even more strength.

I think I have seen a Gacha system in a game where one can control monsters. I think it was a monster in a red ball or something. Is it some major anime which I don’t know about? [5]

It’s not bad as I can get one for free every month.

  1. He mentions at the start of the story that he pulls out an old PC to run Village of Fate. He never moved it to the new one.

  2. Seeing the title, I can already imagine Carol and the possibly baby familiar that will hatch to grow close with each other.

    “My previous stalker problem had really bothered my mother, so I wanted to be silent about this but guess I need to talk as I can’t follow up when I am busy up with work”

    I can’t read Japanese so I don’t know if what I’ll be saying is right, but, shouldn’t it be “My sister’s previous stalker…”. Though I know that his sister’s problem is his problem as well, but doesn’t it sound better that way.

    Thanks for the chapter

    • I mean he was stabbed by the stalker so it was kind his problem too. I think here it is referring to the incident of his injury by the stalker which made her mother worried so it’s kinda his stalker problem technically. Actually not sure myself, I was thinking the same thing but then decided to go with the above lines.

  3. Thanks for the chapter! I was surprised by the boys for a moment i was thinking it was a sister dialogs or 4 wall dialog [TL. My two cents] is a way to differentiate between dialogs
