I asked Carol to stay calm and then sacrificed Destiny so I should be safe for a while.
After leaving the room with a subtle expression of a rock, I decided to go to the ground floor and give her a detailed explanation.
I arrive before the kotatsu in the living room and sat down.
In front of me, she crosses her arms and settle down.
I mix some truth with the setting which I had assembled in my mind.
“So she is an immigrant from abroad who came with her family from the village which you had helped about which I heard before.”
I want to praise myself for thinking about this setting.
“Her family has to urgently return back to the home country for a short while so her parents dropped her here and asked me to take care of their daughter. I had my family so I took it lightly but had forgotten that they will leave for the New year. I was also busy with the work and the stalker case so I forgot about it.”
I told her quickly.
I guess I managed to talk well, as it is rather common for my sister to point out that I was telling a lie.
“I know that whatever you do has nothing harmful but I need to know more. I will talk about this with aunt after New Year.”
I have known that when she talks in an overly polite tone like her Student Council President days, it has already become pretty dangerous.
She pretends to be calm but her convulsions and jerky cheeks her habit of suppressing her anger.
If a women is angry and you make an excuse, it will be like adding oil to the fire.
This is one of the few techniques which I learned during my NEET days.
“How about that its a lie and I am actually married. She is my daughter.”
Why the crying look? Is it because that she is shocked? Or…Dont go into delusions.
“No I’m joking… I was a NEET. I was withdrawn from the world and stayed at home all the time except the night. How can I get married?”
Apparently that was very convincing argument but…….I am not happy
She is still a bit suspicious of me but it’s fortunate that I was a NEET…….She is really happy about this???
Anyways, this seems to have mislead her but the problem is the future.
Will I always feed this girl from another world?
The best solution would be to return her to the original world but how?
Even if she returns but finds the village destroyed then she will be alone. Wouldn’t it be better for her to stay here then?
Several questions come to my mind.
If I had money and I lived alone then I might have been able to feed Carol but I don’t have anything.
Even I myself can barely live alone. Can I even save one girl who has lost her place?
“Yeah. Why was I sleeping in the japanese-styled room? I feel I am still dreaming. I can’t remember properly. Take care of yourself—are you listening?”
“Oh, sorry. I was thinking about something. What are you doing tomorrow?”
I noticed some things.
Confusion in memory…It seems that Sayuki’s stalker also had said something similar to the police. That the memory before and after the incident was strange.
I thought that it was an excuse to escape the punishment for his crime but maybe…..
Does the Destiny’s mist have that kind of effect?
It just licked Seika and that poison(?) entered her through the tongue?
I may want to verify it but I don’t want to bother with that mist.
“Well, I think I have to take care of you till your parents come back. If you are worried about taking care of the child then I’ll help …
“Well, would that be really okay?”
“Is the chat over?”
Looking back at the unexpected sound which I heard, Carol was standing in front of the stairs. She was holding Destiny like a stuffed toy.
“To, to, to, to, to kage”
Seika trembles and suddenly retreats to the wall.
“Carol. Onee-sama is not good with lizards so dont take Destiny close to her.”
“Okay. I understand.”
She walks to me with Destiny.
Seika was stroking her chest as if she was relieved with the distance.
