NPC Town Building Game - Chapter 11 (1/2): Tension Due To Approaching Crisis
After the meal was over I was sitting in the garden with my father while gazing at the night sky.
“Have you found a job?”
“There are about three possible options. I would check them out tomorrow.”
“And, why are you looking for a part-time job?”
“There will be some event at the end of this month at the Village of Fate and I wanted money for it.”
I am surprised that I’m able to normally converse with my father. The words are automatically coming out of my mouth.
“Oh, so it would be tomorrow.”
Does my father believe me?
I wonder if I heard correctly.
“Did you have any problems?”
“No, I think I’ll do my best with whatever job I get, but I think it’s impossible for me to serve customers. Because of that, the convenience store wouldn’t be for me. So instead, I’m looking for some physical labor. I’ll see if I can find something.”
“Is that so. If you are passionate about it, then you can ask others for help, you know?”
I am grateful, but if I rely on someone and fail, only to end up disappointing my father again…
“Yoshio, no matter the situation, I am still your father. It’s not embarrassing for a child to rely on their father. It’s different from being dependent and spoiled. You should use everything you can, including your adults. ”
I’m not sure, but I think my father is telling me to rely on him.
I imagine Lodis working and looking over to his daughter, while his daughter Carol is trying to do everything by herself. His behavior clearly indicates that he wishes for Carol to rely on him, instead of doing the work by herself.
Carol’s situation overlaps with my current situation.
“You’re right. Please help me.”
How many years has it been since I bowed to my father like this?
“Wait a minute.”
Dad got up to throw out the garbage and then went back to the living room.
This is my escape route.
No, I can’t betray my father’s expectations again. My heartbeats have accelerated and my shirt has stuck to my skin due to sweat.
I am really upset that I’m not working.
“Yoshio, can you change into some more comfortable clothes?”
My father, who has finished his work asked me that.
“Yeah, I have a few jerseys.”
“That’s fine. Change your clothes and then come out.”
Maybe, he has found a job for me.
“Oh, but I haven’t written my resume yet.”
Is it an interview? It could be something worth a try.
I went back to my room and to change into a more comfortable jersey.
My hands are trembling. I’m angry with myself who still isn’t ready to face this situation.
When I cried, was my desire to change nothing more than an empty lie?
Am I ready for this?
When I looked at my computer monitor, Chem and Gamz were inspecting the fence around the cave.
Carol is sleeping, Layla is examining food, and Lodis is inspecting the tools inside the cave.
They are worshiping a God who doesn’t work.
As the God of Destiny, I can’t afford to slack off.
…… Thank you. I got courage thanks to you all.
I hit my cheeks lightly with my hands.
“Everyone, Yoshio is heading out now.”
I finished changing my clothes and closed the door.
