Moto Sekai Ichi – 029b

 The first day ended and right now was the morning of the second day.

 He did not lay a hand on me.

 On the contrary, it seems like he was awake all night, guarding. Maybe he did it so that I will let off my guard.

 I couldn’t sleep much since I had to stay alert all night. But if this continues, I’ll reach my limit soon. I have to do something, but I have no means to do so. I’m just a slave. I can’t even run away. I don’t know what to do.

“Hey, just give up already. Tell me everything.”

 While I walked thinking of such things, he came prying again.

“How stubborn.”

 Since I got annoyed, I answered while showing a bit of anger.

“You really don’t trust me that much? “

“Yeah, that much.”

“Then, what can I do so you can trust me? “

“……Let’s see, I could trust you if you die right now, right here.”

 A vein was clearly visible on his forehead. It seems like he became angry.

“Is that how it is? Yukari, you bastard.”

“What is it, Master? Are you going to use violence against a slave? “

“Shut it! You won’t have lunch! “

“Eh! “

 How despicable!

“That’s a breach of contract.”

“In the contract it’s written that I have to supply you with enough food. And two meals a day is enough! I think that’s fair! Hahahahaha! “

 We still need to walk for who knows how many kilometers, really, this man is…!

“What’s wrong? If you apologize, I won’t do it, you know? “

“Tch……! “

 How humiliating! Having to apologize to this man… but…

“……Just kidding.”

 Then, he laughed while saying so. That smile looked like he was making a fool out of me, so I couldn’t stand it.

“I don’t need it.”

“What? “

“Lunch, I don’t need it.”

“H-hey, you’re going to collapse. “

“I already said it’s unnecessary. I’ll be fine.”

“Hey, wait! My bad! Here, eat! “

“No, thanks! “

 I hurried ahead.

 I need to cool down.

 I became quite emotional back there.

 But I can’t back down anymore.

 …………

 I wonder what did I want to accomplish…?

—————————-

 It was the morning of the third day.

 Last night was a fight against drowsiness.

 ……My feet feel unsteady.

 Two nights in a row not sleeping, walking all day, I had no lunch yesterday, and for dinner I just ate a little.

 No matter if I’m an assassin, I’m a living being after all. I know that my limits are approaching.

 He did not lay a hand on me last night either. Perhaps he’s waiting for the moment when I’m completely unconscious. He is a cowardly man.

 Today’s journey, similar to yesterday’s, was just walking and walking.

 Every time we open our mouths, we can’t help but to quarrel.

 Quarrel at breakfast.

 Quarreling on whom will walk ahead.

 Quarrel at lunch.

 Quarreling on when to take a break.

 Quarrel at dinner.

 Quarrel as soon as the sun sets.

 We already forgot the relationship of master-slave somewhere along the way.

 Sometimes I wasn’t able to make a judgement because of the sleepiness and fatigue.

 Anyways, I was always careful as to not show a chance. The result of that was our quarrels.

 But.

 This night, I finally fell asleep soundly…

  * * *

 Emotional instability.

 That was obvious.

 There were a number of contradictions in Yukari’s behavior.

 Because she is overly cautious of me, her behavior is inconsistent.

 And as she gets tired, it gets worse and worse.

 Why is she like that? Now I know the reason.

 I got a clue when I was questioning her and the Duchess woman’s name came out the night before heading to the Ashaspern Dungeon. But I became convinced the first night after we were teleported to the coast, when she became wary of me making advances on her.

 ――Yukari has been ‘brainwashed’.

 Most likely to ‘Be wary of that who becomes your master’.

 The culprit is clear. Such a skill, Brainwashing Magic, was an inherent skill of a Duchess called Lucia Icene. She was famous in Mobius, and was nicknamed the ‘Brainwashing Hag’.

 And to dispel brainwashing magic, there’s only one way. The ‘manifestation of strong emotions’, only that.

 In Mobius’ main story, there was an emotionally heavy scene where ‘a brainwashed NPC killed his lover in front of his own eyes, and then the brainwash was lifted’.

 I can’t deny the feeling that brainwashing magic was prepared to force such a development in the story, but it’s different when that story becomes the real world. How is it? Isn’t this more troublesome now?

 I have to somehow have her show her emotions.

 And those have to evoke strong feelings.

 It seems like simply quarreling won’t do the trick.

 What should I do?

 How can I? How can I…?

 …………

……――!! “

 Not good, I almost dozed off.

 Two more days to the port city Koula. I have to somehow do my best.

 I took an abnormal status recovery potion ++ from my inventory and drank it all at once. To tell the truth, this has only a small effect on drowsiness. Obviously, there’s a limit to what it can do.

 Well, what should I do?

 Gazing at the darkness of the sky, I crossed my arms in front of the bonfire and began to think.

Thank you for reading.
