3 . Chaos Gate

Past the dome’s entrance is the gate .   Ikaruga stands before it, and just like before, isn’t moving .   He cups his mouth with his hand and stares at the gate, jii, deep in thought .   My level… needs to go up 2 or 3 more times .   What field should I go to?  Ah, the rain field is an absolute no…  My hair would get wet .

Ikaruga mentally goes through his options as though he were discussing them with someone . Upon finishing his “conversation,” he transfers to his chosen area . The situation is similar to that of other PC, but his method of selecting an area is different .

Ikaruga can transfer to another area without speaking a word, an impossible action within The World . This makes following him any further impossible for Divine[1] . She watches him disappear while leaning against a pillar near the door . At the same time, a harvest cleric walks in to the chamber . The harvest cleric says, “Aren’t you going to get attached if you stick to him this much?”

Divine’s tail shakes 2 to 3 times as she says, “I’m just watching from above . I’ve already decided not to interfere with him…”

“Then, if something happens to that child, do you plan on claiming, ‘I didn’t know . ’?”

Divine’s thin, cat like, pupils sharpen to be as thin as a sword as she stares at the gate . She has no response to the harvest cleric’s question . She doesn’t respond because she knows that person is right . Instead, she says, “You really worry too much, (Kira) . I can’t do anything without learning Ikaruga’s position . Don’t forget that maybe, the self-defense program, could be working…”

In a clear field overseen by a blue sky lined with shinning crimson bands stands Ikaruga . He knows neither the area word nor required level for being there . In fact, he’s the only one there . However, since monsters, treasure chests, and beast statues are present, it should be an established field .

Ikaruga takes out an old sword and challenges a monster near a treasure chest . He says, “…Well, will you be killed by me?”

He makes contact with the monster, but the battle area fails to establish itself . The development is just like the R:1 system . Furthermore, the monster freely runs around the map where it eventually gets swallowed up into a herd .

Ikaruga eradicates the monsters[2] . He looks up to the sky and closes his eyes while saying, “…Ah, time to leave . Back to that place…” without going to the beast statue .

He is surrounded by light and transfers away despite no gate being within view . His method of transfer is one independent of gates . It’s a very peculiar ability, but the person himself acts as though it’s only natural .

Ikaruga returns to the town . However, instead of appearing within the dome, he appears at the edge of the bridge . He’s a bit relieved that Divine isn’t there, but the feeling only lasts for half the length of the bridge .

Divine gleefully waits for Ikaruga in his reserved seat . “Welcome back~, did you have fun?”

Ikaruga leans against the bridge’s railing as he says, “…Not in particular . ” He then voices his wonder, “You, have a lot of free time . Are you a NEET?”

“Ikaruga-kun has no right to say that . Haven’t you been logged in the entire time?”

“…You’re no different . ”

“I diligently take breaks whenever you go to an area~ . That’s my job . ”

Ikaruga has trouble accepting her statement . Her behavior until that point led him to think that she’s younger than him . “Your job? Aren’t you just a brat?”

“I’m still in my mid-20s… It’s just that this character is a roll[3](- . -;)”

“…Heh, you’re surprisingly clever . ”

“What do you mean, clever?”

Ikaruga doesn’t reply . Instead, the action is faint, but he relaxes his lips . For the first time, he presents Divine a smile .

Actually calling that a smile is doubtful, but it is a change in his expression . “…Well, please take a break every once in a while . ”

“I’m pretty sure you don’t have any reason to worry about me . ”

Divine hops off the handrail . She speaks while easing her body into facing Ikaruga . “You’re not the one I’m worried for . Continuous usage of the Paso will overheat it and melt its circuits (-w-) Your electrical bill is gonna be stupidly expensive~ . ”

Ikaruga watches the everyday sunset as he says, “That’s true, but it’s still none of your concern . ”

The lack of emotion in his tone makes him sound lonely . Divine stops waging her tail and stares at Ikaruga’s orange haloed profile .

Ikaruga says, “You, said you were interested in me,” without shifting his gaze from the sunset . He is, despite his calmness, listening for her reply .

Divine looks straight at Ikaruga and nods . “…Yep . ”

Ikaruga looks down as he receives her answer . He closes his eyes and says, “…I see . ”

Divine leaves the bridge without causing any more trouble . She enters a back alley of the mercenary district where she rendezvouses with .

makes a face as she skims over Divine’s report . “As expected, there’s a lot that doesn’t match . ”

“Especially his transfer method . That’s a real mystery, but there’s nothing we can do about it here in the system . ” Divine uses a wooden box to gives herself a light stretch and continues, “I’m also worried about his logging in and out… but there’s no way we can do something like steal his personal informationn . ”

“…He’s, always been bound here to The World unable to leave . ”

—Almost like, being cuffed with chains as a warning .

T/N: The second, technically third, chapter down . One thing I’d like to say about Divine, she sometimes drags the end of her words . If you see an extra letter or two, those are intentional . So, you might notice that these chapters are short . Therefore, I should be able to release at least on a week as long as nothing happens . *tilts head* Did I say this last week? I can’t remember… More importantly, Cute Star did it! She’s a main character in a light novel! Well, I hope you enjoyed it and please continue to support Cute Star in all her endeavors!

[1]After some back and forth, I realized that “Divine” should be the translation for the name “Song Huang . ” I’ve gone back and made the corrections .

[2]This line doesn’t actually specify if he just killed the one monster, or the entire herd . I’m assuming he killed the herd because I don’t they would passively standby and watch one of the members get killed . The following sentence also hints that he might have eradicated them .
