Avoid Yandere Constellation - Chapter 11
I took out all the small empty bottles from the liquor vault.
I filled the small empty bottles almost half full of holy water.
OK. I’ve finished distributing. Now then, from now on.
Now I took one of the liquors that you often see in the shops. I put a little bit of the liquor into the empty bottle with the holy water.
The constellation was not happy with my behavior, and became furious.
[What are you doing now !!!! Why are you putting alcohol in there !!!!]
She who usually sends messages, meekly gets angry for the first time.
I won’t be like stuck by divine punishment or something, will I?
I got goosebumps in my arms thinking about it.
Well, actually, if you think about it, it’s no wonder for her to do that. Holy water is useless, but it’s representative of religious people who believe in constellations in its own way, so my mixing it with alcohol is as good as insulting religious people.
Simply put, it is no different from bad-mouthing Buddha Shakyamuni as a monk.
I ignored the constellations, who continued to send messages and dispensed all the liquor into empty bottles.
“Phew… it’s over. Anyway. Why are you being so petty? This holy water, you get it for free when you go to church anyway.”
[The goddess of destiny is frustrated by your actions…].
No, why are you even frustrated by this?
I knew that any further dialog with the constellations would not help me understand her. So I ignored the message again, and put all the empty bottles into the subspace ring.
Now let’s put the second plan into practice.
With that, I left the mansion with light steps in a good mood.
After leaving the mansion, I went to the back streets for a while. I took the masks out of the subspace rings.
I must hurry.
Until I reached the backstreets, I could feel people avoiding me, looking at me. I think I should hide my identity now.
I put the mask on my face and a robe on. I walked to the slum in David’s territory .
After a ten-minute walk, I arrived at my destination, a poor neighborhood. Unlike the mansions I lived luxuriously in, there were only buildings there that were on the verge of crumbling.
Not only that, but it deserved the name of a slum, with dirty-looking people sitting on the floor comfortably.
It’s like looking at beggars in a subway station.
Most of the people sitting on the floor are wearing shabby clothes and have not washed for days, probably because they begged.
I could even see some of them fighting each other over money.
I walked cautiously into the slums and looked around, thinking I might be attacked.
I am pretty sure it should be here any moment now.
As I wandered around, a single small brown puppy approached me, tail wagging. It scratches my leg with its paw.
Ok. I’ve found it!
I squatted down and stroked the puppy’s head.
“Are you hungry?”
The puppy nodded with shiny eyes.
“Then, will you follow me for a minute? I’ll share my food with you.”
[The goddess who sees destiny warns you not to be fooled].
I looked at the puppy with good-natured eyes. That guy doesn’t know that and only scrubs it’s paws as if it wants me to give it food.
People who were watching me nearby looked at me with pity.
– Oh, no…
– Another person gets screwed again?
-I guess so.
[The goddess of destiny says you have to watch out…]
I ignored her and walked into a deserted corner with the puppy.
It should be all right around here.
I turned my attention to the puppy that was following me.
“How about you stop acting now?”
The puppy halted at my question. It lowers its head with a dreary look on its face, as if it still doesn’t want to stop acting.
That’s really one of the best acting skills I’ve ever seen.
Perhaps if it were on Earth, this chap surely would have succeeded as a child actor.
I need such talent close to me.
There is only one Riche who can help me now. Of course, it is an undeniable fact that she is an assassin with a considerable amount of ability. But frankly speaking, she alone is not enough to protect me.
I need a companion with a certain amount of potential and talent, one who can also be used for infiltration.
All right. It’s time to scout for talent.
I take off my mask to prevent that dog from fooling around any more.
The puppy’s eyes widened, after all. Kane’s face is famous even in slums.
“I’ve revealed myself too. Wouldn’t it be polite if you too had to reveal yourself? Or shall I tell you?”
The puppy in front of me squints at my words.
After a few seconds in that state, it eventually decides to stop acting and untransforms.
A white smoke appeared around the puppy.
Soon the smoke disappeared, and from it appeared a female child with long brown hair, small in stature and plump in the cheeks.
She was a child who looked about primary school age . You could tell that she was still very young, and it was obvious that if she grew up big enough, she would be so beautiful that people passing by would subconsciously steal glances at her.
. if there was anything slightly different about her from most people, it was that she had dog ears on her head and a tail on her buttocks.
I involuntarily shifted my gaze to the tail and ears, which had been wagging gently for some time.
I’d like to touch those precious little tails.
Anyone who has read a fair amount of Manga and novels must have at least once imagined touching a beastman’s tail and ears.
So now my desire to touch that thing is strictly a desire.
While I am looking at the ears and tail like that. She crosses her arms and talks tough.
“Never thought it would be…. you ruffian”
A nobleman, called the Marquess David and a ruffian, s*umbag, and many other bad words visits the slums.
“You brat calling me a ruffian just after meeting me and I f*cking swear, I’ll make your life miserable if you do one more time. And Heck! Is there a law that I am not allowed to come to the slums?”
You may feel that I’m pathetic being like this against the little girl, but I see myself as an equal to the kids and the woman.
And it doesn’t seem strange to me in the first place, because of Kane’s image.
And when I ask her back if she is unhappy with me, she gives him a perplexed look and shakes her head.
“Oh, no, sorry. By the way, why did you come to see me? I’m quite sure I didn’t have a sliver of a connection with you.”
“Right. You should have asked that question from the start. Well, it’s nothing serious, but are you interested in doing business with me?”
She nodded her head at Kane’s question .
“Yeah. It might be rude, but I’ve been doing some personal searching on your past.”
She narrowed her eyes at Kane’s words. He continued in an ‘I’m sorry’ tone.
“Well, I’m sorry. But I don’t think it’s necessarily all bad if you listen to me. How about it? Do you want to hear it?”
“… I’ll listen.”
“Yeah, sure. It’s not a big deal, and if you come under my command, I’ll make you strong and help you get revenge. Honestly, I think it’s better than begging for nothing here and planning the future? How about it?”
She narrowed her eyes at Kane’s suggestion …
— Definitely not a bad deal.
But, is it really right to believe him in front of you?
Obviously, unlike what people talk about in the public, he didn’t seem as bad as she thought.
My own intuition even tells me that the proposal is not bad. However, she was afraid to believe him carelessly.
She closed her eyes and recalled the past.
The sight of her own kind being slaughtered in the forest by black-robed humans.
The sight of friends, adults and parents sacrificing themselves in front of her eyes to keep her alive.
And… the image of herself, who abandoned her own kind in order to live, ugly, and self-rationalizing to escape.
Another year of such hell has passed. Every night, what happens then comes back to me in my dreams.
In my heart, I want to tear apart all the cultists who killed my people. I dream about it every night before I go to bed.
In reality, in the end, I was just prolonging my life by transforming myself into a pitiful puppy from the slums.
She slowly opened her closed eyes.
“Tell me more about the deal.”
At her words, Kane held several fingers .
“Four years. During that time, you will be my subordinate, and you will follow my orders along with your training. Of course, you can refuse reckless orders. And by the way, the treatment will be 100 times better than living here.”
“I will treat you well.”
“… If I accept the deal, you’ll help me get revenge, is that right?”
“Yes, that’s right. Depends on what you do, of course.”
Kane smiled and extended his hand . She looked at the hand.
Yes, it does. Even if I have to make a deal with the devil —.
I want revenge.
She took Kane’s hand in hers and opened her mouth.
“You may know me, but my name is kersey. My master.”
Kane smiled satisfied, as if he had been waiting for those words.
Ok. I found one that I could use.
I looked into Kersey’s eyes as we held hands. Her eyes shone as if she was seeking revenge.
For a child, she’s fairly clever. She’s the daughter of a clan elder, after all.
It is strange that such a child is not an important character in the game.
In the first place, her episodes are not the main ones, but the extra episodes. Usually, characters from extra episodes don’t have a big influence on the storyline.
Wouldn’t she then be of little use? You might think.
It is true that characters from most of the extra episodes may not be very useful. However, not the kersey in front of me.
She has exceptional talent and potential, despite the fact that she’s an extra character.
Shiba. When you think about it this way, it’s kind of unfair. If I’m going to possess someone anyway, make it someone with overwhelming talent!
Ha… It’s no use crying.
Anyway, a girl with such exceptional talent and potential has come under my wing.
Of course, she’s useless now because she is still a child, but due to a few characteristics, her growth rate is much faster than others.
Eat well, grow up well and give some protection to me for a bit until the main story episode is over.
I feel kind of pathetic being protected by a child, but I don’t like the pain either, so I can’t help it.
And it’s not like I’ve committed fraud.
Her family was killed by the cult. In effect, if she stays under me, her revenge against those bastards from the church could happen as they might come at me again after killing Brig.
This is totally killing two birds with one stone.
Revenge is taken for kersey and a talented minion is born without affecting the main story in any significant way. Use the kersey to secretly help Kim Soo Yeon.
Anyway, I should just sit back and let Kersey follow his orders and help Kim Soo Yeon.
While I was rejoicing within my heart.
[The goddess of destiny suspects that you are a lolicon…].
This crazy constellation. There are things you can say and can’t say.
My ideal type is close to Riche. She has a good body, big br*asts, and a style like Nonna’s.
I like women like that. I don’t like childish styles.
Since the constellation crossed the line first, I decided to cross the line like we do in my home country, Korea.
I raised my head up. Stretched my hand to the sky and raised my middle finger precisely.
