Chapter 18 – White Dream
In front of me is a mysterious existence who calls himself Hitogami.
Around me is an otherworldly pure white space where nothing exists.
What a strange dream~.
I must be very exhausted to see such a dream.
Well, I’m really exhausted.
Exhausted, without a doubt.
I felt something’s wrong with my body, so I looked down and realized that I’d returned to my JK body from my elf body. Is it because I’m unconsciously seeking my boring yet peaceful previous life because of the brutal and violent environment I’ve recently experienced?
“You must be tired. But this isn’t a silly dream caused by your fatigue. I am speaking to you through your dreams.”
I don’t really care.
What I need right now is not an unknown existence called Hitogami, but stamina to leave this Conflict Zone and search for Elder sister and Master.
I should hurry up to switch from REM sleep to non-REM sleep.
Thinking so, I lay down on the white ground to sleep even deeper to my dream world.
“Hey, wait! Aren’t you too cruel to completely ignore me!? Are all people from other worlds like that!?”
Hitogami is making a fuss.
You’re too noisy.
I’m tired, so please let me sleep quietly.
“I didn’t think I would be ignored even with the word isekai… it seems that you really don’t have any regrets and obsession in your previous life huh.”
Hey, how rude. I too, have regrets.
I feel that should’ve treated my parents better and I also feel bad for my friends for dying so suddenly.
However, it might partly be because of my carelessness, but it is almost a completely unfortunate accident. Also, I have almost no regrets about everything I have done until then, so I think it’s better to work harder right now rather than look back at the past.
“Oh, how optimistic. It’s a huge difference from a certain someone. In that case, how about this? I can tell you where your elder sister is right now. Of course, I could also include where your Master and his family are.”
Hearing that, I became slightly interested in the existence called Hitogami right in front of me.
Well, it’s probably just a dream anyway, and I have nowhere to look for them, so it might be fine to just listen to what he says.
“Oh, you’ve finally become interested in me! How delightful!”
Enough of that. Can you get to the point quickly?
“You, aren’t you too arrogant? After telling you this, I can be considered your benefactor, you know?”
I think that this is just a nonsensical dream, so.
“…un, well, whatever. For starters, your elder sister is in Asura Kingdom. Not in Fittoa Region though.
On the other hand, your Master has returned near Fittoa Region. After that, he’ll probably go to Holy Millis Kingdom.
As for his other family members… no, I think it’s too much of a freebie to tell you that much.”
Eh~, you’re going to stop now?
“If you want me to tell you, you should respect me a little more and build a relationship with trust.
I’m very good for telling a person who I’ve met for the first time so many things, you know?”
Mm~, well, indeed.
Thank you for telling me that.
I still think it’s just a dream, but with a sliver of hope, I’ll investigate those two areas first after leaving Conflict Zone.
It should be as effective as randomly throwing a dart on a map.
“I’m telling you, this isn’t just a dream!
…haa, well, that being the case, it’s up to you whether you believe me or not.
But lastly, you should listen to this. This is not about your elder sister or your master, but about your future.”
“That’s right. At this rate, not to mention looking for your elder sister and master, it’s doubtful whether you could protect your parents right?”
It has been a very difficult road.
If you have any tricks for getting out of Conflict Zone, I would really like to know.
“Good. Ehem! Emily, you must make a detour from advancing through your current route, and ask help from a man called Vigo whom you would meet ahead.
By doing so, you will be able to save your parents. However, if you continue on your current path, you will end up fighting with a terrible monster.”
What do you mean, give me more details…
When I thought so, Hitogami’s voice echoed as if it was being left being, and disappeared farther away along with his appearance.
I woke up.
My body is not a JK body, and returned to the exhausted elf body.
And what’s in front of me is not a pure white space but the inn where I stayed last night.
The person in front of me is also not a mosaiced god, but my sleeping father and Mother who was taking care of him.
“Good morning, Emily.”
“Good morning, Mother. How is, Father?”
“…not very good. Maybe because of his wound, he has a fever.”
Listening to Mother’s words, I used healing and detoxification spells on Father, something that had already become routine work.
I was not very proficient in it, so his wounds do not heal completely, and his fever will also return after a while.
In the end, we should hurry up and make him see a proper doctor as soon as possible.
“There’s no, time for, a detour, huh.”
“Mm? Emily, did you say something?”
“No. It’s, nothing.”
I ignored Hitogami’s words and decided to take the shortest route to leave this battle royale stage.
After all, it wouldn’t be amusing if something that cannot be undone happens because of believing in a dream.
Even if I end up fighting a terrifying monster, it is far better than Father dying as a result of believing in a dream.
And so, as Hitogami said, I met a monster ahead of our route.
At this time, I still didn’t know what I would encounter that would change my destiny.
