NPC Town Building Game - Chapter 13 (1/2): I Didn’t Know That My Father Was Worried About Me
“Thank you so much!”
I gave my thanks to the president after getting out of the car in front of my house.
Today’s job finished earlier than normal. It seems that the night work will continue for three more days.
However, it was dark and the clock has crossed the dinner’s hour.
“Will I eat dinner alone again?”
Recently, I have started working and therefore doesn’t get time to eat dinner with my family, and eating alone is lonely.
Up until now, I was more concerned about how my family viewed me rather than eating alone.
I laughed at my own feelings.
When I entered the house, father was in the living room and mother was in the kitchen.
“Oh, you came home. If I knew you would come back early then I would have waited for a while to have the meal together.”
“Don’t worry about it. The cleaning job ended earlier today.”
“Oh..sorry you must be hungry. Let me make some dinner for you.”
My more-than-usual cheerful mother lit the stove while humming???
Did something good happened?
If I ask my father then I might be able to know why my mother is so happy but I am still a bit nervous to talk with him.
He is a serious father who rarely laughs. I don’t seem to remember having a decent conversation after becoming a NEET. The last time when we had a normal conversation must be during the time when I was in university.
But It feels like … I can talk to him now.
I saw my father sitting on the sofa reading a newspaper while his back is facing me. I want to say, “I’m happy along with mother, but did something happened?”
However … It’s not easy to lose my bad habits and gain confidence.
Still…I should gather more courage and talk. I need to say thank you for the part-time job.
“The rice is cooked~~”
My mother’s voice completely overshadowed my voice.
…… She finished the meal.
My mother sat at the dinner table in front of me, full of smiles.
My talkative mother is not saying anything, her whole body is overflowing with aura that she want me to ask her about her happiness, her aura is clearly reaching me… I wonder why she is doing this.
“Mom, did something happened??”
“Fufu, do you want to know?”
I want you to stop saying what you want to say.
Usually the conversation start with a lot of bragging and to be honest I don’t want to hear it.
But I know if I don’t talk with her then I will feel terrible so I have to do this….There is no other choice.
“Actually, your day today…”
“Oh! Yoshio, your favorite program is starting!”
“Oh, wait I am coming.”
I escaped from my mother thanks to my father.
But now I’m a little curious about the story. It looked like my father just rushed and stopped her. …… What happened?
** From their reaction he may have been intended for their child not hear about something embarassing between them. Then I should thank my father.
My mother sat beside my father on the sofa. I carry my dishes to the sink and then went to take a bath.
Probably I should ignore it.
But its so rare for my father to fluster. At least I don’t remember anything like that.
I was imagining what happened to my parents as I soaked my nose under the water and formed bubbles.
When I got out of the bath and looked into the living room, my parents were watching TV side by side, so I moved up to the second floor.
It feels nice to sit in front of the pc but my body is physically exhausted.
I am confident that if I dive into the futon at this moment then I can sleep instantly but I have to check on the villagers first.
Carol is sleeping because its already night time.
Gamz and Chem are still awake and are in the same room, one is practicing sword play and other is chanting something as if praying to God. There is no conversation between them so I just think of them as sleeping.
Murus is lying on the bed of his private room but his eyes are still open.
I thought to give up on the role of God of Fate, abandon the villagers and disappear but I am still staying with them.
“What am I thinking? Am I going to be watching the villagers until the day they run away?”
It seems like he has no intention to turn the God of Fate into his enemy but I must remain wary of him.
The remaining two people, Lodis and Laila, are flirting in an another empty room instead of their private room where their daughter is. …… Well, they are still young.
Its not a bad thing to be doing it.
The problem is that the quality is so high that it seems real so I feel like a peeping tom.
I have already encountered several scenes, there are no bath or toilets so they need to do some things outdoors like when they wipe their bodies with a wet cloth.
Although it is a game, and I could watch it but I have the position of God of Destiny whom the villagers admire so much.
…… No, no. After looking at them for weeks, I can no longer think of them as mere characters. They are just like my family.
I took a quick look at the past logs and it seems that there were no particularly important stories or problems today.
“Wow, ah. It’s awful. I’m going to asleep for a long time.”
I was thinking of going to sleep but when I checked the screen again I saw an unfamiliar mark in the upper left corner of the screen.
“Nh, What is this?. Is this the dream or back story of some character??”
I am certain there wasn’t anything like this a awhile ago. This seems to be similar to the Dream mark which appeared when Gamz was asleep.
Is this some hidden quest?
My drowsiness is at its limit so I should probably go to sleep after checking this out.
I decided to click the “Current” button on the screen.
