“Yes,Yes… . I joined later.”
“I think so. But, I also think you came in a hurry. The clothes and … the shoes… … .”
Fidelis wiggled and curled her toes a little and looked at her scarred bare feet.
“Haha, I lost it while running away from the ghost… … .”
As she quickly rolled her head to make excuses, Hakan nodded his head.
“You seem to be very scared. Is it okay if I ask the reason you came in? You can’t go out without the curse being lifted, but you don’t seem to know that either.”
Touching her lips, Hakan smiled kindly. Far from calming her down with that smile, Fidelis began to break out in a cold sweat as she continued to take a round of running in her brain,
Hakan gazed leisurely at Fidelis, who was busy thinking, rolling her eyes, and he wiped the sweat from her forehead.
“I have troubled you. You do not have to answer.”
“Ah, sorry… .”
“I’m more sorry.”
As Hakan walked, one of the doors swung open. Fidelis was startled, but he patted her on the back.
“I have to take a look around first. You must have been very surprised.”
Fidelis shook her hand in denial. Then, she saw the bandages on her hand and tilted her head.
“It must’ve hurt a lot. First aid.”
“… Oh, thank you so much.”
Hakan entered the room, answering her reply with a gentle smile, holding her comfortably in one arm and rummaging around every nook and cranny of the room. But, not a single thing came out of the big room. He turned his back and left the room without hesitation.
Fidelis bowed her head when she heard a sound from her stomach.
Through her gray hair, her ears and neck, which were dyed red, could be seen clearly. Hakan let out a sly smile at her.
As the tension repeats itself, she continues to be quietly embraced by the person who makes her feel comfortable, so she is at least mentally comfortable.
“Sorry, sorry… .”
“Before you say sorry, it looks like you came in late and didn’t take your medicine.”
When Fidelis asked, Hakan rummaged through his pockets and pulled out a small clear glass bottle. Inside were round purple pills.
“It’s hard to expect food and a safe zone here. It’s magic. It keeps you from getting hungry, and it keeps you from getting tired. You should sleep, but taking a short nap also relieves fatigue.”
Looking at her surprised, round eyes, Fidelis’s expression was surely unaware of it. Hakan’s guess was almost certainly hardened.
‘She didn’t come here because she applied for it.’
Hakan lowered her carefully to the floor and took one of his pills from the clear vial.
“In case you don’t know, the applicants carry 2-4 pieces in their hands just in case. And first of all, they ate one pill before they came in.”
Because he didn’t know how long she would be locked up. No matter how strong she is, she will never be able to overcome hunger and sleepiness.
So, what she needed was this purple pill.
Without food, hunger and drowsiness would be fatal to oneself. The medicine effect was quite long, about a month, so people who were anxious would take 4 at most, or 2 at least.
“And this medicine was made by me. There are no side effects.”
Fidelis hesitated as he handed it to her with his broad smile.
“I have a lot, so you can drink it. but… .”
As he muttered, Fidelis raised her head and looked at him. She was just like a baby rabbit. He stroked Fidelis’ head involuntarily.
“This medicine works better when it is taken in the best condition.”
“Uh, then… .”
A slightly anxious voice came from Fidelis.
“It’s okay to eat in your state now, but unfortunately there are downsides.”
“Uh, what is that?”
“Your current hunger and fatigue will remain the same. But you won’t be hungry or tired any more.”
Fidelis picked up the pills without thinking. This was enough for her to endure. Hakan gave her peace of mind, and her hunger was just fine in this state,
You have acquired the item, ‘Repeated stamina Replica (Infinite).
( When you consume this item, as long as the medicinal effect lasts, the stamina consumption will be slower and the recovery will be faster.)”
Fidelis’ face widened at the unexpected explanation.
Whatever she did, her recovery was slow due to her dripping stamina, and she got a headache. So, she asked Hakan carefully.
“Um, can I eat it?”
“Oh, then, can I feed you?”
Fidelis squeaked at Hakan’s playful question, then put a pill in her mouth and swallowed it. After confirming that she had swallowed the pill, Hakan carried Fidelis again.
Fidelis didn’t even bother to stop him. It was as natural as flowing water.
“Isn’t it strange to see that?”
“Yes, Yes?! What, what?”
Fidelis, who stuttered in surprise, was so cute that Hakan’s lips curled up. Pretending not to notice, he continued.
“I thought it was strange that the devil had a hint to get out of.”
Fidelis shut her mouth and chose silence. She never thought it was strange because she knew this was a game world.
But if she were one of the people who live in this world, it certainly made her think it was strange. Fidelis nodded her head cautiously.
“It’s strange… .”
“It sounds like the devil also likes to play.”
“… Did you know?”
Blinkings her eyes in surprise, when she looked up, Hakan smiled sweetly.
“A thorough investigation is essential.”
Fidelis looked straight into his face, as if she had caught on something that she hadn’t noticed before because she was in her own thoughts.
When she met his eyes, he smiled brightly, so unfortunately she couldn’t read anything from him.
‘Shall I ask openly?’
Soon, Fidelis shook her head. Whether she knows it or not, there’s a saying ‘If you shut your mouth, you’re halfway finished.’
In any case, seeing that he didn’t ask anything outright, he didn’t look like he had any intention of harming me yet. She breathed out her breath of relief.
Fidelis decided to make her feel as positive as possible. She is also wary of people in front of her, and she is also wary of ghosts who she didn’t not know when they would pop out.
“There are a lot of mischievous people among the demons.”
“mischievous… … .”
Fidelis smiled slightly at the cute word. Hakan’s blue eyes rose faintly as if he couldn’t forget her face, and he pressed his lips tightly.
“Unfortunately, no one has found a hint and no one has broken the curse, so it exists until now, so perhaps the devil has forgotten the existence of this place.”
“If he hadn’t forgotten, would he have removed the curse?”
“Well. I don’t know. I am not the devil.”
Hakan stopped walking and tried to grab her doorknob.
“Can I open the door?”
Seeing his considerate action caused her to be surprised again, Fidelis began to wonder if that person was really a psychopath.
In the end, she even doubted that the word psychopath might be a mistake. Or maybe he really was, a psychopath who was so good at tricking people.
Fidelis wanted it to be the former.
“Yes, I’m okay.”
As he was about to open the door with Fidelis’ permission, she heard the sound of clothes rubbing on the floor. Hearing the ghost-like sound that she had not heard in a long time, Fidelis unknowingly wrapped her arms around Hakan’s neck and hugged him tightly.
The sudden action caught him off guard and he was embarrassed for a moment, but a pleasant smile was engraved on his lips.
As her voice grew faster and closer, Fidelis opened her trembling lips.
“Hey, run away! Hurry, Hurry!”
Unlike Fidelis, who was in a hurry, Hakan was only relaxed. He patted her, who was trembling in fear, on her back, and moved his foot. The owner of the sound suddenly appeared.
The man wearing a long black robe, floating in the air, had a bizarre appearance in the shape of a skull.
A large scythe was in his hand, and Fidelis hesitated for a moment, then closed her eyes tightly and came down from Hakan’s arms. Then, she put the lantern on the floor and ran to the skeleton.
Bewildered Hakan called her softly.
“I, please … .”
Begging earnestly inside her, she forced her trembling legs to move and rushed to the skeleton. As she drew closer, the skeleton raised his scythe high to slash her and Hakan hurried to his side, but it was no avail.
Before Hakan could save her, Fidelis dodge the scythe with her swift movements and kicks the skeletonn’s skull which is over the ribs with her feet. The skeleton, whose bones had collapsed at once, squirmed and turned to dust.
And again, a mechanical voice could be heard in Fidelis’ ear.
「You have acquired the skill, ‘Auto Evasion’.」
Fidelis let out a deep breath of relief in her chest. A scythe was an item that had to be acquired, so she worried a lot about where she should take it or not, but she didn’t want to miss it after hesitating. She still felt her hands and body trembling from the force.
As soon as she came close to the skull, she tried to use the ”Iron Feet” to kick it, but suddenly a scythe flew in, and her eyes were darkened as to what to do. At that time, her body had avoided the scythe on its own just in time.
Hakan saw such a sight and covered his mouth with his large hand. For some reason, he found the situation interesting and pleasant. He wanted to protect her from her fear of ghosts at first.
But even before that, she looked at the skeleton and he wondered if she hesitated, but she quickly ran away as if she had made up her mind.
She was so terrified both the times before and after she ran.
She didn’t give him a chance to protect her. Rather than arouse his curiosity with an unknown behavior, the situation was just interesting. Hakan strode closer to her with his long legs.
「The item, ‘Scythe’ has been acquired.」
Fidelis smiled broadly at the electronic sound. She also seemed to have done well not to destroy it. With a smiling face, she thrust her scythe at Hakan.
“It’s a scythe!”
“It is. Are there any injuries?”
It was Hakan who looked everywhere to see if there were any injuries.
“No. I was surprised to see this all of a sudden. Sorry.”
She patted her neck as if she’s embarrassed.
“It’s okay. There must have been a reason.”
Hakan smiled brightly and spread his arms out. The meaning is to come and hug him. Fidelis with her scythe hesitated. But, suddenly, she fell to the floor with her scythe and the lantern that had been lying around was floating in the air.
