“I am sorry but I have to do this…….I know that I don’t have the right to ask you to do such a thing but I want you to lend me your power.”

Murus suddenly hangs his neck and got on both his knees.

The villagers rushed up to him. Isn’t this the dogeza in this world?

“Please raise your head, Mr. Murus. You are our brother, we will help you with whatever you ask.”

“That’s right. Tell us.”

All the villagers had the same feeling, as they catch up to Gams and Carol.

I don’t know what it is, it’s complicated. But if that is is his personal request then I want help him. I believe that he is not a bad guy.

And if you think of it as a game, then according to the gaming rules they should become friends.

…..Aside from the meta-idea. If we are to succeed then he will surely join us. 

“First of all I want to apologise. My identity is not that of a pharmacist who accidentally visited this place but I am from a clan living within the forbidden forest.”

Everyone is amazed except Carol and Gams. The reason for them not being surprised is probably that Gams has already anticipated this up to some extent and Carol probably didn’t understand it properly.

“Is that so? So you knew about the threat level of the Temptation of the Evil God in this forest.”

Unlike usual, her tone is severe as her brother was seriously injured so it’s a natural reaction.

Gams stretches his hand in front of his sister and leans forward.

She lost her momentum when found her brother not saying anything. Gams coughed and went one step ahead.

“I am sorry. I had a rough idea. But…….this time, there was a sense of periodicity in the attack, and their was behaviour was mysterious.”

What does this mean? The enemy attacked at a certain period of times. Is this not the normal setting for it?

“I noticed it too. When the village was attacked by monsters, multiple races came in large quantities. But until now, the Temptation of Evil God has only made the monsters violent but they never attacked by cooperation and organized in to waves like this.”

“That’s certainly true. When I was doing pilgrimage several years earlier., I often heard stories about villages attacked by a mass of monsters. However, there hasn’t been a precedent for so many races to attack together.”

No, wasn’t there the green demon riding the old boar at the opening of the game. Is that scene not normal? I think the riding monsters should be a common sense in this world. [ 1 ]

“Put that aside for now. What request did you had?”

Both I and villagers had deviated from the main point, Gams brought us back.

“My village was destroyed by the Temptation of Evil God.”

I can hear the gasps. I am not sure whether it’s mine or of the villagers.

This was a surprise. The Murus’s clan should have been living here for generations. There should have been sufficient preparation to defend against the monsters.

But it was still destroyed.

“There was an unprecedented large amount of monsters. In addition it seems that various monsters attacked by cooperating with each other. A villager that survived told me that it was as if they were being operated or directed by someone. When I visited my village…….

When he talks upto this point he becomes depressed. His shoulders are shaking slightly.

Everyone seemed notice it but no one pointed it out.

“Were there any more survivors? If so, why not bring them here. It’s safe here and this place is blessed by the God of Destiny.”

For me I would be really happy to receive more villagers. When they are in trouble we can help them so they can form a good relationship and if they are like Murus they definitely won’t be a burden.

“Thank you Gams for your kind thoughts but the village had no survivors other than the one who reported this attack…… everything was devastated.”

Did only one person survive? It’s very heavy for a game setting.

If the request of Murus is for him to stay then we will gladly accept it.

“However, the number of the corpses did not match the number of villagers living there. There were not enough corpses of the children. Maybe they were taken away by the monsters.”

What kind of face Murus must be making while looking down?

He is alone. And he had to checked the villagers corpses where be was born and raised. I can’t imagine how painful and sad it is.

“If there is any possibility of their survival, then there is no time. Let’s go.”

“Onii-sama, I will bring weapons from the cave.”

“If you need to prepare potable water and food then please ask Laila.”

“Carol. You can help too?”

The villagers had already started the preparations.

There is no doubt that these villagers who have overcomes difficulties over and over again wanted to help those people and protect them, even if they lied before.

I swear that I will help as much as possible as the God of Destiny………as a member of the village.

Murus raised his head, abashed. He didn’t think that they would agree to it so easily.

“For me…….thank you….thank you…”

Murus puts both his hands on the ground after a few groans leave his throat.

“My villagers are the best.”

I am happy for the villagers….. it’s like that I am the one being praised.
I am….

Proud.

[1] TN: Basically when the green demon rode the wild boar then technically they are two different species so they are doing kinda of cooperation but it can also be considered riding like we ride horses. So basically it’s complicated.

    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    Lol.. so my comment about people being around VoF a while back was kinda true?! If MC wants a lumberjack, then someone with a lumberjack proffesion will replace murus’s place as the scout/spy..

    But that is kinda cruel and calculating of the god of fate that he/she deliberately manipulated a non-believer village to help his own believer and indirectly leaving the non-believer’s village to it’s doom.. just to make the remnant convert themself into his/her believer village..

    • I dont think his arrows are gonna be enough to change the village’s fate. MC’s village only survived because it was a small town (less enemies) and the golem’s presence obliterated much of the final wave.

      Murus’ village was probably bigger and had more enemies. Even if he was there, at most he can do is reduce their numbers a bit and not decimate all of them like the golem would. In short, with or without fate manipulation, that town is doomed and there’s only a survivor because the God of Fate changed his destiny as one way to see it.
