I didn’t know about that!
Do you lose your memory when the game is over?
I can’t exactly say it’s impossible.
The powers of Destiny and the healing medicine which I drank stand as proof. Now that I have experienced this, I can accept any paranormal or ridiculous story.
Will Yamamoto forget everything he did today when he loses his memory of the game?
…… There is no resentment against the enemy of the villagers in. I am actually terrified.
After hearing his monologue, I can no longer hold a grudge against him from the bottom of my heart…it was because of the game that he went crazy. And I fear I might be the same…
If he loses all his memories then surely he wil be able to return to his usual bright Yamamoto-san from tomorrow onwards.
Even I want to vent my anger because of my emotions, he would not understand meaning of my wrath after losing his memories.
Can I still go to the police for this crime?
There are no injuries on my body so the assault cannot be proven.
If I accuse him and he goes to the jail without having any memories of the game or what he did today, then he will be probably resent me.
How many years would he be thrown into prison for in this situation? It shoudn’t be long and after being released…..
I will be good if he only harms me but I don’t want to worry my parents and sister.
Looking at Mr.Yamamoto who was lying on the floor, it seems for a moment that something like a black fog slipped out of his body and disappeared.
Yamamoto-san rolls on the floor while rubbing his eyes.
The stone-like arm has returned to the normal and the painful feeling has subsided.
“It’s effect ran out … no, did you return him back to normal?”
It was rather a confirmation rather than asking.
Destiny nods once.
A lizard with the supernatural powers cannot be from the real world. Normally it maybe be a scary scene but its impossible to be scared of someone from the family who helped you.
“Thank you, Destiny.”
I thanked him and stroke his head. It narrowed its eyes as usual.
Seika who was still fainted is now lain in the guest room.
Yamamoto is lying on the sofa.
I didn’t want to do anything more but I am still distracted when he is moving.
I got to the kitchen after wiping his eyes. I take out two cans of my father’s beer, throw out the contents in the sink and place the empty cans in the sink.
Empty plates and open mouthed bags were also set.
How much memory will he have? I think he should be waking up very soon.
“Hide, Destiny. If anything happens, don’t come out again …. Yamamoto-san, Yamamoto-san, he is alright now.”
As I shake Yamamoto shoulders, his eyes shake and he wakes up holding his head.
“Ah, what? Where is it?… is that?”
“Are you still drunk? You came here suddenly smelling of alcohol, drank even more beer, started to make a ruckus and just passed out.. Don’t you remember anything?”
“Somehow my memory is so blurred, I can’t remember well. Today, I meet somebody during the day …”
The attitude only shows one thing.
If this is an act then its a big deal but I think he must have lost his memories. If he really had such acting abilities then he should have been able to do better fooling me.
He looks around with a stupid face.
Its as if he got possessed.
“You should not drink this much… To not even remember what you were doing. I think you should go home before the new year, is that okay?”
“Ah, uh, I guess. I’ve felt that there was something I needed to do … but this is really bad. It seems like I was super drunk!!”
He is shamefully scratching his head.
I want to shout what are you doing!
Even now, anger is swirling deep in my chest. I am in a state where I am holding it down.
“Please be careful in the future”
“Oh, it was really bad of me to make a noise at such a time. I apologize.”
“Yes … have a happy new year.”
I send him to the entrance and closed the door.
Wait a few seconds and then hit the wall with my fist.
More pain than anger. Its just an empty wrath.
“Is this the end? It’s a shame. Haha, I wasn’t able to make the villagers happy after all.”
I sat at the front door with my back facing the door.
I’ve lost everything …
I checked the smartphone which I was holding all the time again and again but the screen remained black.
“Is the game over too? Will I forget everything about the village just like Yamamoto-san … No, no!”
Wait a minute. I haven’t seen the the game over screen and I still remember about the game.
“What is this? Calm down, calm down. Calm down and think.”
When the game is over, there is a sound and the message in red letters.
However, there was no such notice on my smartphone.
Even if I missed the message in my nauseated state still I have a complete memory of the game and the villagers.
“Gams, Chem, Rodis, Laila, Carol, Murus, Kan and Ran. I remember everyone’s name, face, and character …”
In other words…does this mean that the villagers have not died yet and the game is still not over.
Then why is the screen still dark?
When I touch the smartphone screen, a red text appeared.
《No Bible currently exists on the map》
“If it disappeared in the explosion then…..shouldn’t it be game over?”
I do not know. The mystery is only deepening.
“Wow, it hurts.”
I was so surprised by the sound of the door bell that I hit my head on the door knob.
Did Mr. Yamamoto forget anything?
When I got up and opened the door, there was a huge cardboard in front of the house. The sender was Village of Fate.
I was panicking in my head because of the continued unpredictable developments.
Today I told them via the oracle that I don’t need any tribute and wanted them to concentrate on the Temptation of the Evil God.
So they have never offered anything on the altar so there is no way to receive a gift.
“But it’s from the Village of Fate.”
The largest cardboard ever sent.
Logs were the largest but they werent in cardboard.
I have no choice but to open it.
I want to carry it indoors but it was heavier than I imagined. I somehow managed to drag it to the entrance.
When I opened it, there was a girl holding a familiar book inside it.
She has adorable face ad long blonde hair. The girl who always ran around and showed a dazzling smile is now sleeping soundly.
There is still continuation of the story that should have ended. Is this a reality or an illusion?
The intersection of the game and reality will start a new story.
What kind of story will start when she wakes up? Even the God of Fate does not know……..
