Join our discord to get latest updates about the novel
While I was dealing with Mr.Yamamoto, the village was on the verge of destruction.
The fence protecting the base is no longer intact, it has been knocked down or burned.
More than the half of the wooden boards blocking the cave entrance have been destroyed and fresh air is flowing in.
The door to the room of Kan and Ran is open, Rodis family is shaking in fear.
The hairs of Kan and Ran are contaminated with blood, Rodis is somehow supporting their body from falling down.
Murus is holding a dagger in one of her hand and the other hand is bent in a strange direction.
There was no place on the leather armor of Gams which isn’t tattered, the blood has flowed from all over his body. Its already dry and sticking to the skin.
He must have been protecting the villagers behind him till the end.
Chem is desperately casting a healing spell on her brother from behind…….tears in her eyes and clenching her teeth.
There are dozens of monsters in front of them without any wounds.
“I’m sorry everyone. I’ll help you soon!”
I operate the smartphone and use the Golem Summon miracle.
The miracle to operate the Golem isnt activated.
“Why! Why can’t the golem start?”
No matter how many times I press it, the Golem launch screen isn’t displayed. No matter how many times I review it.
On the screen, Murus and Gams are hunting down the monsters while Rodis and others are running away.
They all jumped into a room and closed the door.
Monsters are hitting the door violently. The door is reinforced as it is a room dedicated solely as a panic room but this situation will change in few minutes.
Perhaps Kan and Ran have already given up. They have settled in the corner of a room with their backs to the door.
“Why, why don’t you move! I have enough fate points!”
No matter how many times I press, the miracle would not work.
“Maybe it’s no good now.”
Rodis mutters with a bitter smile.
“Don’t say that!”
“Yes, I’m sorry. Thank you all for protecting our family to the end. “
Laila and Rodis bow. Carol seems to be sleeping all the time and hasn’t woken up even in this state.
“Thanks to Mrs. Murus’s sleeping pill. She would not be scared.”
Did Rodis decided to sedate his daughter?
“If the statue of God of Fate is broken then we can no longer expect miracles.”
Chem holds a finger shaped piece of wood in her hand with a lonely expression.
So maybe the Golem summon coudn’t be used because the statue is destroyed…..I wont give up.
Which other miracle can be used?
“I’m sorry for my lack of power. I couldn’t protect everyone … “
A drop of blood falls from the mouth of the shivering Gams. He tightly holds hs fist.
“I will lose my village and friends and even my own life.”
Murus grabs the bow with regret and slams it on the ground.
… Stop it, stop it!
Please do not give such an atmosphere.
Still there must be a way!
Didn’t I say not to give up in the oracle.
I cant be restless! Take some measures….Something, something, something, something that can break us out of this cornered situation.
“The day to use this has came. We can’t just die. “
Gams goes to the corner of the room where Kan and Ran are protecting the wooden box placed in the opposite direction.
It is the explosives left in the cave which were used to break rocks.
Are they going to self destruct?
“Even in this situation one person can be saved.”
Listening to Chem’s words, both me and the villagers took a deep breath. Ran and Kan turn towards her.
“It may not be exactly the same as helping but its better than dying here. Who would you choose to save?”
The villagers looked towards one person at the same time.
“That’s right. Thank you, God of Fate. Forgive us for not having accomplishments despite your blessings.”
The screen of the smartphone turns black after seeing the smiling face of Chem.
“It’s a lie … hey, come on, is this a joke?”
All the power leaves my body and I fall down to the floor.
The screen is still black and nothing is being shown.
I cant imagine anything. I don’t want to think anything.
I would do nothing as it is….=
There is a strange sound. I looked at the smartphone but its not from mine.
When I looked around with my blank head, the sound was coming from Yamamoto’s smartphone.
When I look at the screen.
“It’s game over. You will lose your game rights.”
It was written in Red letters.
Well, they ended up using the bomb.
My grudge against Yamamoto for the loss of the villagers has… wavered somewhat. At least he won’t have his victory…
I continuted reading the messages.
《At the same time, all memories related to this game will be erased》
