“Here in Japan …”
A monster was standing on the deck of the ship.
A demon with green skin. It looks just like the ones which I saw many times in the game.
“That’s a green demon!”
… Yeah, that’s right. I am a very clever man.
I tried to be strong and yell that… but I was stiff and didn’t speak.
I didn’t feel scared when I saw them through the screen, but when I see it in person just standing there, it’s scary.
A strange feeling that the monster is not from this world.
The space seems to be deviating from reality.
Cold sweat gushed out at once and the shirt got struck to my back.
I was wondering if this was the case for the villagers as well. You will not notice the fear until you experience it yourself.
I want to escape. I want to run right away.
There is a weak presence behind me, who is frightened and is squeezing the hem of my clothes.
I have to protect her.
“Don’t worry, I’ll protect you”
I put a hand on Carol’s head and forced myself to laugh.
The Green Demon is standing in front of the door leading to the deck. The number is only one.
There is no visible figure in my range. Unless its hiding somewhere
It should be an easy opponent for Gams but I don’t even have the option to fight.
Is the opponent’s height a little shorter than me? The arms and legs are muscular and generally large, leaner and bigger than the game, but I still have a better physique..
However, the opponent is a monster and not a person, that alone should upset your courage.
Even if I ask for help, there are no people around.
The dependable Destiny was left in the Cabin.
There is no movement from the opponent yet but in this situation, I cant do anything till he leaves the stairs leading to the deck.
It would have been a little better if I had a stick or something which could have been used as a weapon.
I expected other players to take some measures, but I never thought that they would follow the ship and make such a direct approach.
“Give me the book”
Unexpectedly the Green Demon speaks in a nice and smooth voice.
Did this guy speak?
I have never seen it conversing in the game. That was a strange voice but there has never been such conversation with the villagers.
What is this Green Demon? A player summoning it with his miracle power, it seems possible.
I don’t know if there is a God who can use such a miracle, or maybe the Evil Gods can do it if the level goes up.
If so, there is nothing which I can do about it. What would I do if I can summon a monster freely?
I knew that it was the Bible from the Village of Fate is what the monster wanted but I tried to bluff it.
“Don’t play coy, give me the Bible. If you give it obediently, I won’t hurt you.”
Thats what I thought. I was surprised with something different in this situation.
“Its a Green Demon. Are you able to summon and manipulate it with the miracle from Evil Side?”
“There is no law to make me answer your question. Give me the Bible.”
Unlike the bandman, the is the type that doesn’t talk needlessly.
Its strange but the tension has been relieved because a conversation has been established.
“What if I don’t?”
“Then I will forcibly take it.”
“It’s a violation of the rules. I know it’s game over if you directly harm the player.”
“… I heard you were a Level 1 beginner, but the information is a bit inconsistent.”
How will is the information about me known? It seems he instantly understood that I am level 2 or higher because I know the inside story.
I whispered to Carol who was holding her pants tightly, and after some thought she whispered to me back.
“Your information is good. However, there are ways to take it without direct harm.”
“Then why not take it away with my game over?”
I take out the Bible which I had from my inner pocket for a moment and then put it back.
For a moment it reacted, but it didn’t seem to come any closer.
Mr. Yamamoto’s actions, the information that I got from the bandman and the information collected on the bulletin board.
With all this in my mind, its almost certain that using a miracle on a player to cause direct harm will result in a game over.
Then this means… If the other party tries to do something by force, do not avoid it but take it head on. I might be seriously injured or might die, but I will be able to defend Carol.
But that is the last resort. Now to pull out the other party off balance….
“So what you looks like to me, it must be fak. You’re using hallucinations or a disguise aren you?”
I tried one possibility.
The content of miracles depend on the God, There are many kinds of miracles but how often have I seen the special abilities in manga, anime and games?
I have accumulated that kind of knowledge for ten years. If it is a miracle then we can make some predictions.
“Why you litt-“
“Well, is it correct?”
“WHAT DID YOU SAY?”
