I dont know about the details of the game but since its about making money then its just another job.
You might be able to make more money by concentrating on the game, but I am afraid to bet all my eggs on a virtual basket.
The cleaning work will be over tomorrow. The work will restart from January 5th so I hope Mr.Yamamoto will return back to normal during this time.
I don’t usually worry about people but its natural for me to be concerned about a close colleague.
I saw the lights of my home while walking back, thinking about Mr. Yamamoto.
I was walking rather slowly, and it seems the chill have seeped to my core.
I jumped into the house to look for a place to warm up. I took of my shoes and went to the living room where my family was waiting for me.
They were about to finish their dinner. Was I just a bit late?
“Oh, Welcome back. Do you want dinner?”
“Yes. I haven’t eaten anything.”
“I’ll warm it up right away.”
While my mother was preparing the dish, I bent down in front of the electric heater to warm up.
“Hey, don’t occupy the heater.”
My chilly sister sat next to me and started pushing me.
I had no intention to give up my place so I defended the position. We started pushing each other.
“Wow, I can’t win with my strength. Ah, hey, what are you going to do during the New Year’s holiday?”
My sister asked me. I was surprised.
Yes, everyone visits my grandfather during the new year holidays. That said I haven’t seen his face since ten years.
At the end of the year, everyone except me visits them and return back after four days so it was some precious days for me during my Neet time.
“Is it okay for you to go this year?”
My father sat on the sofa and asked while facing his back to me.
I understood the meaning of his words. Till now, I coudnt go as I was a NEET but now I am working. I want to tell them.
I love my grandfather and grandmother. I want to see them after this long time. However, there will be Temptation of the Evil God on the New Year and there might be some temporary cleaning jobs.
And since Yamamoto is in such a condition, there is a possibility that more work will pop up
“I want to go but I might have some sudden work. Tell the grandparents that I’ll go see them later on.”
“I see … its can’t be helped then..”
“You better visit them after the New Year. You still have to visit them on a New Year. Please free up some time.”
My parents seemed to be OK but my sister was staring at me with eyes full of grudges.
Is it troublesome to visit my grandparents without me?
“I’m going to spend some time at home this year.”
“Weren’t you looking forward to the New Year’s visit? Didn’t you say that you wanted to meet your grandfather and grandmother?”
“Um, that’s right …”
“Then, let’s go. They must be expecting some souvenirs.”
I have no idea what souvenirs they are talking about but if I care about her then I should convince her to go.
“Huh, then go …”
Why did you sigh? My sisters thinking is uncomprehending to me.
I went to the second floor after the meal. I saw that the villagers are sleeping so I decided to think about tomorrow.
My family will leave at noon. The last cleaning job is also tomorrow.
I will be a little lonely after I am done with work.
Some food has been prepared for the New Year. My mother cooks the food every year. She takes a portion of it with her and keeps the rest for me.
There is also the food from the Village of Fate and since I haven’t used my money on the game recently, I have plenty of money. There isn’t any financial concern.
I can cook some simple dishes on my own as well…..
Well, is there a New Year’s event in the game?
If it is a online game then there must be something like a New Year’s campaign or something similar.
I looked through the options and the past log but it seems there isn’t any promotion.
“Isn’t it possible to do the egg gacha since its been a month since last time?”
In the description, it was mentioned then it can be done once a month only.
I don’t expect much this time as I hit the jackpot before. Also I need to inform Carol via the oracle that she doesn’t need to send more stuff to me .
“Do the work tomorrow without thinking about these extra things … overcoming the Temptation of Evil Gods tomorrow …. huh, oh well, good night, everyone.”
I am not sleepy but I must sleep for the sake of villagers.
The moment I tried entering the futon, my eyes met Destiny’s over the glass case.
Those eyes are …
“That, what, Ah…….” 
Destiny shook his head happily.
