Prologue Part 2 – I Still Refuse
Light shined in a room of the common apartment.
The light that shined out from the windows of the room, pushed out the sunlight and created shadows. But there wasn’t a person there to react to it.
[All right, Shall I go after him]
Saying that the beauty who shined the light vanished.
And then, only the sound of the game he was playing was left.
[Well shall I continue…]
The man was from before was there gripping his game controller.
Uh, why didn’t I stick to my promise? What kind of idiotic thing are you saying?
If someone points their palm towards you and says I’m about to do something, no one would just stand there, please tell if that doesn’t happen.
It’s a simple matter, while I was playing a game there was a table between the console and me. Nowadays, wireless controllers are pretty convenient. Back in the old days because of the cord you couldn’t sit far away.
Ah, continuing on, that beauty (trespasser) when she came in the second time she was on the side of the TV with the table in between and I was on the side of the sofa with the table between us. So when she took my phone away from me our places switched. So the dodged the light coming from the beauty’s hand by hiding under the table. The place underneath the table is an all-purpose place. This situation proved that it could be useful even in situations besides earthquakes (lol). I calmed down and went back to enjoying my day off. You might be asking why don’t I run away? But think about it carefully, the opponent showed up in a locked apartment so even if I ran away she would immediately catch up with me. The opponent is not someone who I can just run away from using just my own tenacity. Basically the next time she comes I will hear her out. With this, if the opponent gives up then I can go back to my normal life. Call the police? Try saying, [All of a sudden a girl showed up in my room!!]. That will most definitely get you sent to either a mental hospital or jail. For now, lets resume playing, The wall clock started ringing at 12 o’clock (Its one of those that probably goes off every hour).
[Should I make lunch or maybe eat out?]
An extremely troubling question, if I was in the middle of work then I would be restricted to eating out (probably at a convenient store). But right now I’m at home on my day off, I think that currently in Japan there is almost no adult male who can’t make his own food. May be even as a student they can make their own food. I’m not referring to the 3-minute ramen that you just need to add hot water to. If you’re living by yourself then its important to keep a balance between eating out and making your own food. But I just remembered something game changing.
[Oniichan, eat this later, alright?]
The grandma living next to me in the same building gave me some pickled vegetables to eat. For me her pickled vegetables are too good to pass up. It is good by itself, with rice, with tea and even with some sake (alcohol). But just by itself isn’t going to cut it so lets also accompany it with some rice.
[Miso soup, nori, fried fish, fried eggs] are Japan’s most basic foods. For me personally, I’m also fine with natto anytime of the day. For the rice, I already flipped the switch (rice cooker). Nori Ok, miso soup is also secured.
[Should I go buy some fish?]
Recently I have been having a piece at least once a day. So, I got my wallet, phone, and keys and left the apartment.
[Shit I bought two by accident just because the single was more expensive.]
So I’m looking at the two pieces I bought, that’s right buying two was way cheaper. Usually if you buy two its 10% off but today it was 80% off (almost like buy 1 get 1 free type thing).
Should I eat two, or maybe I should call the grandma next door; as I was worrying about things such as that, I opened the door…
[I never thought you would have dodged!!!]
Basically the trespassing beauty was standing in front of me in an imposing way.
So I couldn’t have escaped after all. So she once again pointed her hand at me,
[This time I won’t miss]
Yeah I probably won’t be able to dodge this time. But…
[If you want to eat, move aside. Have you eaten lunch yet?]
[Wha, no I haven’t had lunch yet]
[Then your just in time since I bought two fish, lets eat together and I will listen to your story]
I moved to the kitchen saying that.
[Sit on the sofa over there]
She obediently went towards the sofa. When unexpected things happen, a human’s reactions slow down and they can’t think normally. Well lets put off the issue of whether she’s human or not.
And so after the meal…
[Thanks for the meal. Did you make the pickled vegetables]
[No, the grandma next door made them, delicious, right?]
[Yeah they were, but I can believe it, that flavor could be only created with many years of experience.]
[I agree, here’s some tea.]
Drinking tea together… Well, lets get back to the main topic.
[So, the promise was to listen to your story]
It’s probably bad but even if she’s a beauty, a god, or monster, I don’t have the patience to talk in a formal tone.
[Wha, Oh Yeah that right]
This one’s definitely no good.
Before I get hit by that light from before I had to say something.
[Just to hear your story we don’t really need to be transported, let me hear it here.]
[Hmmph! So you finally gave up, all right I will let you hear me out]
She perfectly started talking to me from a position looking down on me. She stood up and pointed her finger at me.
[I’m giving you an job to go to another world, manage a dungeon and restore that world’s balance.
Hearing that I didn’t become flustered. Of course most of it was according to my predictions. This level of trespassing and breaching of rules usually ends up as this sort of thing.
She continued with [You won’t be able to return to this world so take your possessions with you.]
Yeah I didn’t overlook that part
[I still refuse!!!]
Who would throw away their own current lifestyle?
The voice resounded. Still there wasn’t anything surprising about it.
