I am relaxing in a hotel room now.
The weather has suddenly become worse and my vision became completely snow-white so I decided to rush to a nearby hotel and stay overnight.
It is possible to stop the snow if I control the weather with the power of miracle but it’s impossible to cover the entire way as the range is fixed.
Well, that’s not a bad thing. Rather, solving the other serious problem should be my top priority.
In a room with two semi-double beds is me, Carol, Destiny….. and Seri Shinsei.
“Excuse me. Why are you in the same room with us?”
“It’s possible to save money so why not?”
Miss Seri is making a point.
Its usually hard to travel in heavy snow but players use the power of miracles so its no wonder that they follow unusual ways.
…But when I see her sitting on bed and holding Carol with a sloppy face, she loses any convincing power.
“You just want to sleep with Carol, right?”
With a innocent smile like that of a child, she admits it.
If Carol didn’t liked it, I would have stopped it but she looks to be having fun. Is it okay to leave her alone?
I would be nervous if I was alone with an adult woman in a private room but there is Destiny in addition to Carol. It isn’t strange….I believe in my self-control.
“There seems to be a large public bath here so let’s go together, Carol-chan.”
“Big bath! Go go!”
Carol jumps up and down and expresses her joy with her whole body.
I know that indoor bath guards against evil spirits but I wonder how many people can stop her after seeing her joy. 
“… Then let’s have a bath and a meal first.”
It was dark as evening due to the snowstorm earlier but now it’s really evening.
Let’s warm our cold body and have dinner. Since I have come to Hokkaido, I want to eat some fresh seafood.
Of course, in the large public bath, men and women are separated. Carol and Seri enter the dressing room.
I told them to call out aloud if something happens.
Its a huge dressing room but unfortunately there are no other customers here.
Before locking the locker where I put my taken off clothes, I check the bag which I thrown it with.
When I open the zipper, Destiny shows up its face.
“Wait here for a moment. I’ll keep the locker locked.” 
It would be silly of me to not lock. There is the concern of the thieves and I also decided to be more cautious of the Evil God side.
I persuaded it by stroking its head with my fingers. It gave a small nod, grumbled, and started eating the Jingisukan(Genghis Khan) meat which I brought with satisfaction.
When something happens, I can call for help. The situation where I am not wearing any clothes feels too defenseless and it makes me nervous.
When I opened the sliding door while naked, steam suddenly burst out.
The bathroom and bathtub are quite large so it’s too luxurious to enter alone. I immediately wash my body and soak in the bathtub.
“Wow, the best bath in Snow Country” 
All of the fatigue from today seems to be dissipated in hot water.
I want to be blunt and don’t think anything but I have to overwork my head.
I think its safe to say that Miss Seri is a friend.
It’s strange that I couldn’t be wary of her due to some reason but I wasn’t completely negligent.
I was observing her a few times when she was acting alone but nothing seems strange.
How do I know that? That’s because I was monitoring her actions with my smartphone. I can peek around the areas where I have traveled using the Village of Fortune app.
It’s a trick which I alone can do since I have the Bible in my hand.
I pretended to be caroling around, acting like someone whose curiosity couldn’t be satisfied and took advantage of the opportunity to travel to various places for the first time.
I also guided Carol throughout the hotel wherever she wanted to go and so I can peep at most of the places.
Well, the women’s bath is out of my sight, so I can’t see it even with my smartphone. … I don’t think it’s too bad. Besides, it is a rule to not abuse the game for self-interests.
“We will be arriving by tomorrow noon. I hope nothing happens until then.”
I dip till my chin in the bathtub and look up at the ceiling.
My desire for her to safely return to her original world is contrary to my desire to stay together with her.
“But that’s my selfishness.”
I wash my face with scooped hot water and shake my head left and right in order to rid of my anxiety.
…… Is there something that shouldn’t be there at the edge of my vision?
For a moment, I thought that I saw something which wasn’t suitable for this bath tab so I slowly twisted my neck to the right.
Floating in the bathtub…there was the golden lizard.
“What are you doing!”
I hold my mouth after unintentionally screaming.
It’s safe because I am the only person in the bathroom right now but it would be ridiculous if other guests came in.
“I am sorry. I know you want to take a big bath but wait over there.”
I place Destiny in a nearby bucket and placed another one over it so it cannot be seen from the surrounding area and leave the bathroom.
There was no figure in the dressing room so I hurriedly wiped its body and put it back in my bag.
“It looks dissatisfied”
It was bad enough that I forced it to quit while it was relaxing but now it is glaring at me.
After quickly changing my clothes, I left the dressing room, sat on the nearby bench near the entrance and waited.
Although everything looks natural, every time someone passes by, I warn myself that he/she is on the Evil God side and prepare for it.
I took out my smartphone and opened the Village of Fate to distract my mind.
A vision of a person looking down from above appears on the screen.
There is a black part in my sight so I can’t see anything in the women’s bath.
Since the corridor of this floor is already visible, there is no place to hide so it is easy to monitor.
So far there were Hatabata and three thugs on the Evil God side. Moreover there is also the white-haired middle-aged aged butler who got out of the car.
Even now I think its a useful feature. It’s like seeing from a high-performance surveillance camera anytime and anywhere. Its given that I am the only one holds the Bible.
Would it be possible for anyone else to look at the map, the same way as me just like the Bible? Is there something similar?
It’s irreplaceable to me but if this can be only used by me, I don’t know why anyone would want it for 10 million. Is this also a question that can be answered by the management?
“It isn’t like that I can reach the correct answer if I am worried.”
Its nor speculative nor there is enough information to reach an answer. Its a waste of time to worry about it in this situation.
“It’s faster to ask God if you have any questions.”
A cold plastic battle is applied to my cheek and my voice came out.
When I looked up, there were Seri and Carol in Yukata. Since Seri has doll-like hair, she looks good in Yukata.
The person next to her, Carol isn’t losing out as well. The blonde tourist looks with a mismatched yukata turns her to a foreigner who loves Japan. I definitely like tourist Carol too.
“That’s true. Well, don’t worry about it. First, let’s think about getting there safely!”
“Yeah, that’s fine. Then let’s have the long-awaited dinner.”
Carol responded by raising her hand and reducing my tensions.
It’s been half a day since we met, but they are good friends now. It may be due to the same personality and the sense of security of the same sex.
Its looks normal since she is still a child. It makes sense that she misses her mother.
I hold her hand and get up. I follow the two heading to the restaurant
Could this be the last supper which I will eat with Carol? When I think so, loneliness rise in my chest.
I opened the lid of the plastic bottle which I was handed over and swallowed the water inside it without any hesitation.
Translator and Editor Notes:
 Evil Spirits mean Perverts
 The locker is not actually locked. Basically the door is closed but it can be kicked open by Destiny lol.
 Snow country (雪国 yukiguni; also, more prosaically, 豪雪地帯 gōsetsu chitai [“heavy snow area”]) refers to areas in Japan characterized by heavy, long-lasting snowfalls.
