“Hello, this is Yoshio.”
“You’re finally connected! Is everything okay?”
I lean my neck away to my mother’s loud and impatient voice.
What does she mean? No way. She shouldn’t know that I am in a different world.
“Well, everything is okay but what’s wrong?”
“What are you talking about? The worst snowstorm in recent decades has hit Hokkaido and the whole transportation network is now paralyzed! It’s not even a big deal for some areas to get their lifelines cut. Why don’t you know about it?”
…… Well, there is such a thing in Hokkaido⁉
I can’t know about it because I flew to another world on the second day of Hokkaido.
It’s bad for the people who live there but in a sense, it’s convenient for me.
“Oh, that’s right. You see, this is a remote area in Hokkaido, and the only road connecting the village has suffered an avalanche, so the prospect of a quick recovery is slim.”
“I see … but I’m glad you are safe. So when will you be back?”
“In a few days….. but in the worst case, I will be stuck here for a few weeks.”
“It would be tough. Is it a nuisance to the villagers? Are accommodation expenses adequate?”
“It’s okay. I’m staying at a villager’s house. so I’m grateful for that. I’ve gotta hang up because it’s hard for the phone to connect because of the snowstorm. Say hello to Dad and Sayuki for me! I am hanging up.”
“Okay, don’t overdo it. Also, call the president later.”
“OK. See you later.”
I hang up the phone and take a sigh of relief.
The first barrier has been cleared. Next is the President.
On the contrary, if I wait it might get difficult to call so I am gonna call immediately.
“Oh, there you are! Is everything all right?”
After all, he seems to be informed about the bad weather in Hokkaido.
“Yes, somehow. But it seems that the only road leading to the village is filled with an avalanche and there is no prospect of a quick recovery.”
“It will be a tough job. Don’t worry about the part-time job. January is relatively free. It will be busy again from around March though.”
The president informed me that there are new employees in many companies in April so they ask for the cleaning to improve their appearance.
“I don’t know what had happened to Yama but he is working properly once again. It seems like he wasn’t feeling well at the end of the last year, but now he is in great shape once again. Its as if he was possessed.”
Mr. Yamamoto has returned back to normal?
There a lot to say about the cause because the village got in a predicament but it doesn’t make sense to blame him after the memory loss.
“I will contact you as soon as the road gets restored and I am ready to return.”
“I am looking forward to the souvenirs from Hokkaido.”
“Yes, I’ll buy something that is delicious. I’m sorry about the hassle.”
Things went smoother than expected. …… It’s scary.
Anyway, it’s okay even if I cant go back to Japan for a few days or weeks. That’s a relief.
“Well… What should I do now?”
I have to decided what to do while I am in this village. Help the villagers?
Directly interacting with the villagers and sweat together. That’s something which I have been longing for.
A few months ago, it would have been like a dream to live in a different world and be treated as a messenger of God.
“Is there a way to go home?”
As far as I know of the character who goes to another world, mostly die and reincarnate in another world.
Actually, after the car chase, there might have been an accident while I was sleeping and I died and reincarnated here.
In that case, it would be impossible to go back.
I operated my smartphone and read news about Hokkaido but I could not get any information about there being a traffic accident.
However, there is the possibility that even if there was an accident, due to the paralyzed transportation it has not been noticed yet.
“I don’t know anything after all.”
Let’s keep checking the news every day.
You should make the most advantage of having a smartphone.
When I was operating my smartphone, I suddenly had an idea.
“Are there any operating phone numbers left in history?”
When I tried looking for it, there was an incoming call from Management in call history.
Calling that and talking can answer all questions.
Maybe they will tell me how to return as well.
Maybe they can explain the current situation.
They may tell me that there is no way to go back.
Whatever the say, I can at least be convinced and my future policy could be solidified.
It’s scary to know the truth. It’s my bad habit to put off everything.
Act even if a painful result awaits. A rule which I have decided to follow to live a life without regrets.
I sit down, correct my posture, and hold the smartphone.
I touch the world Management in the incoming call history with trembling fingers.
……………… No one is picking up.
“Is there a reason I can’t get out to them or something else?”
I can’t do anything about it so I hang up.
If they are busy then they will call back after hanging up. I did what I can so I will just wait.
“Okay, let’s think of this from a different perspective. First of all, help the village and adjust to the air in the village.”
While pushing up my fist and making a declaration, I suddenly feel a line of sight on me and turn to my feet.
Destiny was gazing at me.
“Shouldn’t you be with Carol?”
When asked, it diverts his line of sight and shakes his head sideways.
It looks as if saying that I don’t understand.
“Did you come out so as not to disturb their family?”
Destiny nods and stands on his two feet and make round shape with his forefoot.
It looks like Geisha. 
“Then do you want to sleep together?”
It came and laid on the bedding that I had prepared. I covered it with a blanket and came into it.
