I cannot let him escape with the Bible.
There are too many unknown points. I should be able to extract more information.
“Yoshio! You don’t have to give chase.”
Carol told and I stopped my feet.
I knew that few seconds of hesitation in this situation can allow him to escape.
“What do you mean–“
“Sh*t, my feet, my feet.”
Looking back at the screams of the bandman, he was humorously swinging around his arms without moving from the ground.
I didn’t understand the development for a moment but I immediately looked at his feets and understood it.
The lower part of his leg below the knees was like a stone and Destiny was looking at the man collapsed at the distance.
Staring alternately between me and him
“Why is it here?”
I unintentionally ask that question.
“Um, Destiny wanted to go to the festival together with us so I brought him.”
Carol pokes its head lightly. The reason the backpack is open is because it was there.
“Hey! What’s happening to my feet! Don’t come here!”
I slowly approached the bandman who is terrified about his petrified foot.
“What, what is that guy! Did the lizard do something? Oh, hey. Say something! Don’t Just approach me silently! I am seriously saying this I was bad. I can put the book over here, okay okay..”
“Noisy. Can you just petrify that mouth so he can’t speak?”
Destiny cheerfully nods.
The bandman vigrously shakes his left and right with a pale face.
I smiled and said, “Please do it.”
The bandman with stone lips is rolling on the ground even more vigorously now…
“I’m going to break the petrification of your mouth now but if you shout, my pet will petrify your entire body. You know what that means, right?”
I asked for the confirmation with a smile. He agreed..
“Do it Destiny.”
It stares at his mouth and blinks once and his lips return to their normal color.
“You can talk now. I’d like you to answer honestly because I have a lot to ask.”
“Dang, ask me anything but don’t kill me.”
Its nice that he is scared to be honest. I just threatened him a little.
“Then, question one. How did you attract Seika?”
“It’s determined by the power in the game …”
He speaks in a polite tone.
“The power of the miracles that can be used in the game by the points?”
“Oh, Yes…..I destroyed a village in the game and leveled up, thus allowing me to activate miracles in reality. But I don’t understand how….You are still level 1 so why do you have the power to turn people into stone?”
I did not hear the last part well but the story so far did not suprise me.
What is the level system?
I don’t know anything about it at all…..
I don’t know anything at all … But i remember the description which I read when starting the game..
《Miracles that can be activated by the fate points are there. As the village grows and number of inhabitants increase, the content of the miracles will also be upgraded, so please do your best.”
It was written such. I thought that was just the miracles which could be used in the game but did it meant this?
The aim of the Evil God is to destroy the village.
The aim of the Holy God is to develop the village.
Those who meet the conditions will be able to level up and use miracles in the real world. Did that mean this?
The game is something more than I imagined?
“The next question. The guy who buys the book, what can he do with the Bible?”
“I don’t even know … I was sent an email with your address and the details of the purchase on my smartphone. If I got a lot of money, I got more points and I can use more miracles”
I am worried about the guy who made the request but somehow I managed to stop him. I probably won’t be targeted for the time being.
“If you can use fascination then why didn’t you fascinate me?”
“It’s a violation of the rules to use miracles directly against the opposing players. If you’re hurt by a miracle, you’re going to have to pay and your game cam be over so I didn’t want to hurt you with a miracle. Therefore I did all that…”
If this story is true the did Yamamoto got game over not because all his monsters were killed but because he put his hands on me?
“Well, wait a minute. Where did you find that information? Did you interact with other players?”
“I guess you will find out eventually … Yes. Well, if your level rises then the Exchange Square will open.”
Exchange Square. Isn’t that something which is often present in MMO-RPG games. An online bulletin board where players can exchange information and the management also answers the questions.
“Woudn’t the game be over? Exchanging information is a violation of the rules.”
“Oh, that’s not it. This game isn’t over when you talk with other players, only with non-players.”
Is that so.
A lot of information which I was supposed to know after developing the village and raising my level.
I am surprised at the new facts. I still have some questions.
“About the guy who want to buy my Bible, how did he know about my address and me?”
“I don’t know. It was all over the Bulletin board of the information exchange on the Evil Side. The game makes a lot of money but I am not rich. If you see the request to buy the book at that time…..Tell me woudn’t you try to do it for 10 million yen?”
Ten million … is he sane?
What is this broadcast about me?
I guess, the guys will keep coming one after the another for the money. Its too dangerous that they know my address.
“Well, lets remove the petrification now. I told you everything which I know. I won’t aim at you anymore.”
I can’t trust the words of this shameless guy.
A chance to get 10 million yen just by robbing a book. Will he let go this easily?
“If we spend some time here then other people might come. I won’t be able to attack you then.”
His arguments are true. However, I don’t want to release him.
The power of the miracles is dangerous. I can’t leave him as it is.
If so then there is only one choice.
“Oh, good. I’ll remove petrification but … Destiny, can we just remove petrification here?”
What I pointing to was his pocket.
The bandman realizes what I am trying to do and shouts loudly but Destiny petrifies his mouth again.
The pocket was no longer petrified, so I took out the smartphone and started opertating it.
I click << Quit Game >> in the options field.
”Are you sure??” A reconfirmation sentence appeared. I selected “Yes”.
Then game over was displayed and the game disappears from the smartphone just like the time with Yamamoto-san.
The rampaging bandman turned white and became calm.
He should have lost his memories of the game. I have relied on threat but it would be a stretch if noone else came after me.
If only it was me but there is still Carol and Seika and it might involve my family.
“We have only one choice to break this situation … Carol.”
Carol who was with fainted Seika got off the bench and walked around.
I bent down and adjusted my line of sight, full of determination.
“Let’s go and meet God.”
