NPC Town Building Game - Chapter 12 (2/2): Suspicious Person And My Muscle Pain
Editor: Kylerboi, SunderMind
It was impossible for me to stay at the dinner table any longer so I quickly returned to my room.
There was still the muscle pain in my body, I wanted to sleep a little, but then decided to sit in front of the pc to watch the villagers.
“If I didn’t notice Murus’s behavior back then it would have been seriously scary.”
Normally, I wouldn’t pay much attention, but now I need to concentrate on watching the villagers because I have to keep an eye on Murus. He might change his mind and harm the villagers.
It is possible to scare him by mentioning in the oracle that the villagers are protected by God of Fate and I’m watching him. I have to think of something which should not sound suspicious to the villagers and Murus would be the only one to understand the message.
It’s not easy to maintain the dignity of God. For now, I can assume that there is no change in the manpower of the village.
I completed the text for the oracle and got ready.
The villagers had gathered together after finishing their lunch, the timing was perfect.
“Muh …Everyone! It is today’s oracle!”
Chem swallowed the food which she was chewing in her mouth and informed everyone.
Oh, Sorry. So you haven’t finished eating?
“I’m worried about the Temptation of The Evil God at the end of the month but I believe you all can overcome it. I can also provide a little assistance with the power of miracles. Do not forget that you are under my blessing. Should anyone try to harm you, then they should be wary of The God of Fate’s judgement. Do not forget… “
I didn’t miss out the change in Murus’ expression after hearing the oracle.
His expression distorted into one of impatience and fear for a moment, but returned back to calm in nearly an instant, as if there never was a change in his expression in the first place.
“If we get the help of God, then we might be able to overcome it somehow, but you all should know what we should do. God really hates lazy people. “
Gamz’s words pierced straight through me.
Although I want to be lazy, it would cause me to be too ashamed to be worshipped as their god, so I should probably stop thinking like that.
… Anyway, I think this should take care of Murus problem for now. I can now concentrate on the countermeasures against the temptation of the evil god.
After that, I should probably work hard to collect money to buy the necessary fate points.
Oh… I forgot about the parcel. It was kept at the corner of the room, probably when I was sleeping.
When I checked the contents, I found a round stone.
“Haha Carol, so you’ve chosen this?”
I picked up the stone and started examining it, my cheeks have already loosened into a smile.
The villagers believe that they can give me tribute only once a day, but that’s actually not the case here. In fact, they can send me tribute twice a day.
But every day Carol imitates adults and sends me something, so the number of tributes that villagers can really send is virtually one.
Carol gave me some strangely shaped stones, small flowers, and mud dumplings.
Recently, I’ve been receiving palm-sized statuettes made by cutting a piece of wood, imitating the statue of God of destiny made by Gamz. She regularly sends me something.
Her performance of making the statuette is getting better each time so it’s actually a lot of fun. The scene of her cutting with a knife still seems fresh.
I placed the stones which I receive on the bookshelf where the comics and game disks used to be. Wooden carved statuettes are also on the shelf.
They may seem worthless to others who see it, but they are treasures for Carol an me.
I rearranged the tributes which I received with satisfaction.
“Wow … Ahh, let’s go to bed.”
Just getting out of the chair hurts my body.
I seem to be calmer when thinking about the night work. Does it become that much easier if you experience it once?
I used to be scared about just thinking about work but now … I’m actually a little excited. I am thankful that I am now someone who can earn some money.
But most of all, when I remember my mother’s happy face … my heart is filled with happiness.
“Ohhh, aren’t I getting better at this?”
I was given the work to clean the floor of a convenience store using the vacuum cleaner just like yesterday.
The president is doing the cleaning with the two other employees whom I met yesterday.
During busy periods, he asks his colleagues for help, or, hires a temporary part-time worker like me.
“Oh, is that so?”
“Oh, you don’t need to be nervous, you will get used to it very soon.”
“Haha, that’s right.”
I laughed unintentionally, but it doesn’t seem like I was acting stupid.
I used to only talk to my family for a very long time so I don’t know much about what’s right. I want to remember the memories of my exchanges during my college days but I am afraid those memories are buried beneath the memories of the previous useless 10 years.
“The most important thing is that you do your work seriously. That would be the best. If you do so, you are a good worker.”
I knew that he was being considerate but I was still happy.
“President, please work and stop fooling around with the newcomers. Don’t be overwhelmed by it Yoshio. All human beings are the best.”
“President, if you are slacking then we will raise our salary and reduce the salary of the president.”
“Oh, I’m sorry …. but I’m the one who decides on the pay!”
Pretending to be angry at them, the president headed towards the two employees.
This air around here also eased my tensions. I’m not sure because I haven’t had any other workplace experience, but the atmosphere here is pretty good.
I should do my best here. Not only the good things but the bad things might work out as well if I try my best.
“I have to work hard for the sake of the villagers”
