A few hours after the lost Shie met Kenji Saito and finished his time at the Temple of the Creator, he was given his own private room for the time being, and told to sleep in his bed in preparation for tomorrow’s departure, but in the middle of the night, his was playing around with her collar.
The inside of the collar, which at first glance looked like it was for a slave, had intricate magic patterns on it, and it seemed to have been designed so that when magic was passed through it, several functions would appear.
Kenji Saito didn’t seem to know about this, but Shie didn’t explain anything about it and used the functions of the collar without any hesitation.
“I’ve been waiting to hear from you, ……. Beastmen homunculus, experimental subject number 1562cf, please respond.”
“This is 1562cf, comms are clear, situation is good. Doctor looks good.”
“Yes, I’m fine. It seems you have arrived safely in the other world. I was worried when I didn’t hear from you for three days.”
The magic circle in his collar was activated and he made contact with a being who seemed to be a member of the organization that sent him to this world.
It’s still unclear who this person is, but for someone who calls him an experiment, she seems to have a small amount of affection for him, and you can hear her talking in a caring way.
If Kenji Saito is right, then it certainly doesn’t seem to be a malicious entity.
Shie, whose dog ears twitched at the mention of worrying about him, put his finger on his chin as usual and began to explain the situation, rubbing his chin with a frown.
“I’ve been in a state of battle with the local elves for the past three days, so I haven’t had time to communicate with you.”
“What? Hey! I’m sure you’ve learned in your program that quarrels with the locals can displease the creator god! Why did you go into battle? I mean, are you okay?”
“Of course I am. Of course I’m safe. I’m an excellent homunculus, I can’t lose.”
The doctor was bewildered by the bombshell statement, which was certainly not a lie, but it was hard to say it was the truth.
In this way, it sounds as if Shie has annihilated the elves and secured his safety, but of course that is not the case.
The moment he entered into a state of battle, he was outnumbered, captured and locked up immediately.
But Shie wanted to look good, so he continued to explain.
“I understand the Doctor’s concern. But I have made friends with a local man who is friendly with the elves, and we already have an elven community under our control, including a human woman, a fox beastman, and an android-type mechanical doll. This way, I’ve already risen to the number two position in this community.”
In the room where no one is looking, he decide to make a smug face with a grin.
“Hey, hey, hey, what? You’ve already brought together a whole community of people! …… If what you say is true, then you’re a very talented homunculus. I am proud to have created you.”
Shie is praised by the woman who created him as a homunculus, and makes his snort.
This report is far from the truth, but judging from the lack of guilt, it is probably true in her mind.
Even though he is aware of the exact situation that he was picked up by a human man, the fact that he was captured by the elves and taken out so easily, and the fact that he gave instructions to his friends like Mizzet, Momiji, and Deus, he might think that Kenji Saito, who picked up his excellent self and set him as number two, gave him a private room in this way.
However, if you look at the connection that Kenji Saito has with the company in a corporate sense, it is no wonder that he thinks that way in terms of the tree diagram if he is valued as the number two.
Perhaps this way of thinking is more comfortable for Shie, who was raised mechanically in an organization.
In his mind, the reason why he became number two is because he is proud of being an excellent experimental subject.
It’s quite an unreasonable interpretation, but he can’t help it because he believes that.
“I understand the general situation, And now it’s my turn to report to you.”
“As you know, several of the sub-gods from our world have gone to that world. They probably trying to start a fight with famous human apostles, adventurers, or knights there…… I can see that the gods are also quite impatient due to the depletion of mana.”
The doctor spoke in a slightly depressed voice, biting her teeth at the seriousness of the situation.
This is because they know that if the sub-gods were to fight and lose to the creator gods and sub-gods of their world, it would be the worst case scenario where there would be no room for negotiation.
In another case, even if they actually win the fight and dominate the world, without the creator god as a source of mana, the world will run out of mana again, and they will be stuck in a cycle of having to invade the next world.
This is clearly a dilemma and not a solution to anything.
“In order to truly solve the problem of mana depletion, the understanding and cooperation of the creator god is essential, but when it comes to the demon god, dragon gods, and destruction gods over there, ……. You need to explain the situation as soon as possible in order to stop them before they start a fight with our sub-gods. Do you understand?”
“I do understand.”
It’s a little difficult to talk about, so Shie pretended to understand, and replied in a raw manner.
“If you understand, fine. It would be ideal if we could finally get in touch with the creator god, but at the very least we can try to contact one of the sub-gods in that world. Make contact as soon as possible. What you need to tell them is the threat of those idiots from our world and the explanation of the mana depletion phenomenon. As long as you don’t end up on the wrong side of the Creator God, there are plenty of things you can do, so just keep that in mind as you carry out your mission. That’s all.”
“I do understand.”
“…… Are you sure you understand?”
“I’m fine. I can afford it.”
He can’t afford it at all, but he’ll keep pretending he does.
However, Shie thought.
Even if it was a little difficult to understand what she was talking about, but it seemed that talking to the creator god would solve everything.
Once she was satisfied with that, he cut the communication with the doctor and ended the contact.
He doesn’t know if he will be able to find out the true identity of the Creator God.
But for now, he thought he’ll just tell Kenji about today’s conversation.
