It was a right guess? I will try not to say too much.
I wonder if the appearance of the Green Demon was disturbed. Suddently it disappeared and instead there was now a man standing at that spot.
A middle-aged man in a worn out suit, the hairs on his head are considerably sparse. In a nutshell, he looks like a dull office worker who seems to be present everywhere.
“He’s taller for a green demon. I saw it in the game that its was a lot shorter.”
The weaknesses is likely that the hallucinations or transformation have to fit his physical body.
If one doesn’t wrap themselves in the hallucinations then you will see the body.
The green demon was just as tall as a human child. Obviously the physique was too good.
And that was not the only thing which I noticed.
Good speech. Words are difficult to pronounce for the people from the game world. You can figure it out by looking at Carol.
I also suspected that the words were getting automatically translated from the another world but when I asked Carol, she said,”I can’t understand it.” Then I got certain that he was speaking Japanese.
Well, that was one of the possibilities. I was considering other possibilities as well if it turned out to be wrong.
“Sigh~ I can’t help but ask you. Will you sell the Bible?”
There was a resigned expression attached to his face and his tone has changed to that of a salesman.
“Weren’t you going to force me to give it?”
“If I can get it for free then I will make more money. That’s why it’s preferable. But if that isn’t possible then we should negotiate in a mutually profitable way.”
There seems to be no danger to me but I feel that this is going to be troublesome.
Lets be careful.
“By the way, how much do you plan to split?”
“Well, how about half the price, 5 million?”
In other words, you can sell it for 10 million. It means that the bandman did not lie and the middle-aged office worker did not have the money.
“You have been NEET for a long time, so you must need money.”
“You know that I was a NEET?”
“Yes, of course. I also gathered information in the neighborhood while I was doign business. I never imagined that you would be so active that you would travel to Hokkaido with a foreign child.”
Spying in the neighborhood…Did he do that?
It was without a doubt a good thing that I made a quick decision and left home early.
The only reassuring thing is that they don’t seem to know about Carol. If they knew that she used to live in another world, what would they do?
“I’m in trouble with money. I’ve always had a hard time playing games and gambling, and before I noticed, I had a mountain of debt. My wife and daughter left home frightened. I do the job just to pay back the debt. It’s like I’m living just for the sake of that. Fortunately, I’ve been lucky. If I make money in this game and sell your Bible as an extra bonus, I can pay off my debt right now. “
Perhaps….there are many people who are in trouble with money, playing the game on the Evil side?
Mr. Yamamoto, the bandman and the office worker in front of me, all were in financial trouble. Also there is a system on the Evil side where you can get money from the game.
To say this a coincidence is being a bit too optimistic.
I also have some trouble with the money, but I am on the Main God side. Is there any criteria?
“I know I need money, but I’m not willing to sell the Bible. It’s something I need.”
“Is negotiation impossible? ~sigh~ I’m afraid I need to withdraw for now. If you change your mind, please contact me anytime. I’ll put my business card here.”
He gave up quickly and placed the business card on his feet, then went down the stairs.
I pick up the business card with caution. The company name and mobile number was written. It also has a name on it.
“Yoshio, are you alright?”
Carol is clinging to my foot and looking up.
“Oh, I talked to him properly. But as I said, don’t follow other people or act alone. Did you understand?”
I seems that Carol’s sea sickness has subsided, so I hold her hands and head to the cafeteria. Before that, let’s go back to the room and bring Destiny.
I couldn’t afford to enjoy the food because I need to always be careful and alert while eating.
I returned to my room, locked it and see if there were any changes. After checking that there was nothing, I finally took a deep breath.
As soon as I sat down on the bed, Destiny, who sitting next to me started at me with appealing eyes.
“I bought you some food.”
There was a store that had fruits and desserts. When I cut the fruits and handed it over, it became cheerful.
“I wish I could give up, but I don’t know.”
I would not be surprising if a person in need of the money tries to take the chance to get 10 million.
Even there is the rule that they can’t hurt me, there is always the the option to intimidate or steal.
In addition to that office worker, there is a high possibility of other evil god players on board this ship.
There might be a miracle which can be used to unlock the room.
“Destiny, I want to make one request. It’s okay take your time …after the meal yea?”
I talked while eating steadily, it leans its neck while scooping the apple pieces.
“Is it possible to petrify the window lock?”
It nodded to me so I will try it later.
I think the door has an electronic lock which open with the card key so i think its harder to unlock. It should be easier to get in from the window, and it will be difficult to enter if we petrify the lock.
After that, the vent is a standard entry point in games so I taped the frame, it will not be easily removed.
I can endure this tension for few days but if this continues for every day then my spirit is likely to break first.
“I just have to pray that the management will do something …”
I have no choice but to believe in the interaction with the administration which I exchanged over the phone.
When I thought it was quiet, I covered the already asleep Carol with a blanket and decided to sleep a little myself as well.
