It was the day after we finished introducing ourselves to each other at the Temple of the Creator.
When I woke up in the morning, for some reason, Shie was pacing around in front of my private room with a smug look on her face.
Like this, when I opened the door, I saw a dog-eared little girl with her finger on her chin in front of the hallway – I found out she was a woman when she announced herself before I went to bed – wandering around.
What on earth is her purpose?
“What’s wrong? What are you doing, Shie?”
When I called out to her, Shie noticed and approached me …….
She poked and prodded my flanks and started checking me out mysteriously.
Hey, stop that, that tickles.
I mean, what’s with that check? What’s the point?
“What is it?”
“Health condition is excellent. No significant obesity at the moment. However, in another fifteen years, your body will deteriorate and your belly may start to show. You should be careful with …….”
What the hell kind of advice is that?
But surely, if another 15 years are added to my current avatar age of 15, I’ll be closer to my actual physical age of 32.
In reality, I’m also an uncle, and I’ve been worried about my belly growing out a bit over the past few years.
This can be a very accurate advice ……, but it is not.
“I appreciate the advice, but didn’t you have something to do with me?”
“Hmm? Yes, I did. I’ve always been in charge of health checks for my fellow experimenters, so it just became a habit.”
Shie looked at me in a perfectly normal way, as if she had no choice but to do this, but I’m not an experiment, am I?
I don’t know why these dog ears seem comfortable, but it’s better than being alert, so I’m not going to complain.
The obesity thing is superfluous, though!
“And about the matter at hand. It is still early in the morning and people were still sleeping, so I thought it was the only time I could do it. …… I need to talk to you for a minute, so I want you to accompany me to my room.”
“I see. You want a consultation. I understand.”
If Shie wanted to talk to me about something, it would most likely be about a mission for some organization on the other world.
That’s what I’m hoping for.
And so, as I quickly moved to Sie’s private room, I noticed that Momiji, who had been stretched out limp since Shie KO’d her, had woken up, probably from the silly noise just now.
I can always tell when she wakes up, you know?
At any rate, as soon as I wake up, I can hear “noja noja” coming from her room.
Perhaps it’s because she’s so good at sensing presence, so she’s also sensitive to noises, so when I wake up like this, she often wakes up too.
What I mean by this is that my waking up equals the time of breakfast.
In other words, she just want to eat.
On the other hand, Mizzet won’t wake up until her physical condition fully recovered, and if you try to force her to wake up, she’ll often punch you in her sleep.
Therefore, she’s probably still asleep.
Deus is out of the question.
He never sleeps or anything like that.
I don’t know what he was thinking, but it seems that he was up late last night in Mizzet’s room soliciting ideas for his own master search.
He is a sub-god who has evolved in a somewhat unique way, so if his contract with me is not approved, he said that he would go on a journey to find a suitable master for himself as an alternative.
He was probably having a discussion with Mizzet about it.
I’m sorry to say that I’m partly responsible for this, but I personally think that Deus should see the world more broadly, so I didn’t interfere.
In the previous chapter, I stopped him from going out of control by acknowledging the significance of his existence from his father’s point of view, but sticking to me forever would be like restricting his freedom and would not be good for the flow of his growth.
His power is remarkable as a sub-god, but he’s still a child who doesn’t know the world.
I think he should be separated from his parents for a time and find a new value outside of my existence.
So, I hope that the contract with Deus will be made with someone other than me.
…. and I guess I’m off topic.
While I was thinking about this, Shie’s story was already over and the meeting in the private room was about to end.
I’m going to have to wrap this up soon because the lazy yokai who’s been saying things like “noja noja” and “isn’t it okay to eat onigiri now?” downstairs is showing some suspicious activity.
The story I heard was roughly like this.
I couldn’t get out why the creator god was the ultimate goal, or why the threat was coming to this world, but other than that, there was a lot of useful information.
Especially if the main threats are the several sub-gods of the other world, this is already a g
The scale is just too big.
It’s a good thing I have a way to give oracles to dragon god and world tree through my app, but if I hadn’t gotten the consultation one step later, I might have been in a lot of trouble.
This is a fine play, Shie.
By the way, she’s still rubbing her chin and grumbling about something else she wants to talk about, but I’m sure she can’t talk about anything beyond her authority as a member of the organization, so there’s no need to push it.
This information alone is more than enough to determine a course of action.
“Yes. In fact, there is a great threat looming in this world. That’s why I need you to find the sub-gods.”
“Okay. I’ll do that. ”
With this, the discussion came to an end and the meeting was dismissed.
It was a very useful piece of information.
But I was surprised to learn that the sub-gods of the other world have already started a war.
This is a new purpose for my trip.
With that in mind, I took out my smartphone and gave an oracle to the strongest sub-god, “Dragon God.”
