35. Improving speech

――After that, another week had passed.

『――Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?』

Recently, I’ve grown so accustomed to the voice of the ghost that if I don’t intentionally pay attention it gets filtered out and I forget the fact that the ghost is speaking.

Well then, let’s announce the results of the 2 weeks long skill raising.

Don.

《Blessing of a Benevolent God +1》

I managed to learn [Night Vision] and [Telepathic Communication] without problems, which were my objectives this time.
Because it’s dark in here and I kept using [Night Vision] the whole time the Skill level had risen by a lot.

Also, although there is no way I can verify this, but [Night Vision] is probably a Skill that needs a lot of concentration, so I think an ordinary person would be very fatigued if he kept using it continuously for 30 minutes.
I kept using that kind of Skill the whole time, so it’s no wonder it went up quickly.
Same reason with [Keen Hearing], I’m also managing to raise its Skills level quite fast.

The reason why [Light Magic] went up was because, from time to time, I produced a ∩ (Light) to grasp the capabilities of the mage on standby.
Thanks to that I managed to grasp how to adjust the ∩ (Light) , so I learned how to create lights that can’t be easily negated because of their composition, or just the opposite, a light that explodes in an instant.

My level went up as a result of the battle in Fauno City.
On the way here at night, when my surroundings calmed down I was assailed by a Growth Sleep.
That being said, in my case it’s done in 10 minutes.

『――Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?』

The ghost is the same as always, he keeps repeating the same thing over and over again.
If I concentrate on listening to it, although they imitate each other well, I can tell that after a certain period of time the voice changes to a different one.
In other words, they’ve put together a rotation for the role of the ghost, and they are broadcasting the voice of the ghost continuously for all 24 hours.
Furthermore, there is only one line.
If my previous self was asked ‘I will pay you good, so will you do it?’, I would’ve most likely said no.

Then I suddenly realize.

『――Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?』

…..Wouldn’t this become quite a nice language study material?

Maybe I should focus on solidifying my still dicey enunciation.

『――Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?』

“Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?”

『――!!』

Rumble rumble, some sounds could be heard from the other side of the speaking tubes.

I, on the other hand, am thinking that my enunciation is still dicey.
They say that Japanese people can’t differentiate between L and R, but in Marquekt Common Language, surprisingly, there are two consonants that correspond to the L in the english language.
Furthermore, those two have completely different meanings as magic letters, so I need to become able to differentiate between them for sure, so I can build Magic Phrases in the future.

Well then, while I was thinking that, apparently they managed to reorganize themselves on the other side of the speaking tube.

『――Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?』

Repeat after me.

“Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?”

『――Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?』

“Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?”

『――Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?』

“Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?”

『――Remember……When was the first tch…..』

Ah, he fumbled.
I guess ghosts have tongues too.

『……Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?』

The ghost continues like nothing happened.

“Remember――”

『Remember――』

This strange Round[1] with the ghost and I continued on for another half a day.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

“Remember……When was the first time you have committed a sin?”

Oh! Wasn’t that one perfect just now?

Half a day had passed since then, after I consumed the provision consisting of dry and crumbling bread and almost flavorless soup, I think I managed to grasp the trick behind the enunciation.

It probably wasn’t in response to that, but

『――Then I ask. What was the first sin you have committed…..?』

Some variation emerged in the lines of the ghost.

Without delay, I start the shadowing in high spirits.

“Then I ask, what――”

『……! I’m the one asking!
Damn creepy-ass kid!
I’ll go and murder his ass right now!』

『H-hey! Don’t say things that are not in the script!』

You shouldn’t say script either.

For a while, clattering sounds continued.

Then, like nothing happened,

『――Pfuu. Then I ask. What was the first sin you have committed…..?』

He repeats the line.

Exhaustion can be felt from the sigh at the beginning.
Of course, it’s a different ghost from the one that flipped out just now.

I feel that my enunciation got much better, so I think I will answer now.

“――The first sin I’ve committed was that I buried my head in the boobs of my maid, Steph, and snuggly-snuggly-d them.”

『……!! Gu-…..kuku-…..』

He must be surprised to hear a reply, and also―― the latter part should be him trying to hold back either his anger or his laughter.

『――The first sin you have committed was doing improper things to the bo-, breasts of your maid.』

Ah, he hesitated to say it.
Surprisingly innocent, this ghost.

“No, that’s not it. The first sin I’ve committed was that I buried my head in the boobs of my maid, Steph, and snuggly-snuggly-d them.”

『……Gu-……This damn brat……』

Oi, I heard that.

『The first sin you have committed was doing an improper deed to your maid.』

“Why do you change the expression.
Like I said, the first sin I’ve committed was that I buried my head in the boobs of my maid, Steph, and snuggly-snuggly-d them.
Also, I’m just a baby, so it’s not improper.”

『……The first sin you have committed was fornication』

“Pfu. Fornication you say.
What period do you come from, huh?”

『This damned braaaaat――!!』

The sound of running down the stairs can be heard together with the angry voice, then right after that, bang bang, the door of the isolation cell was vigorously pummeled.
As one would expect from someone that trained as an assassin, those were some powerful front kicks.

『Getting carried away even when people put up with your shit! I will kill you, I will murder you, you hear!』

Bang bang.
It looks like there is speaking tube in front of the door of the room, so the angry voice from the other side can be heard perfectly.

『Oi, stop it!』
『Someone help here!』
『Bring some pollen of Repchipa!』
『Medic Squad! Medic Squad!』

At least do it after closing the speaking tube.

『――Oi, what’s with the commotion?』

Oh, here comes the Leader.

At the same time a clanking sound can be heard, then the voices became inaudible.
They must’ve closed the speaking tube.

For a while, silence fell to the isolation cell.
It’s been a while since I didn’t hear the voice of the ghost.
It’s been so long, that it somehow feels weird to not hear the voice of the ghost.

Gahaha, a hearty laugh reached my [Keen Hearing].

Clank.

『――Oi brat, it looks like you did some amusing things.
It’s become clear that you are not someone that would be affected by something like this.
――Oi, get this brat out of the Sin Examination Room.』

『Eh….? B-but! Please give me one more week! I will certainly bring this damn conceited brat to his knees!』

『Stop it, it’s useless.
You said the same thing last time, that’s why I extended it another week.
Any more than this and his body would break instead.
If it breaks after he becomes an assassin then it’s one thing, but if his body breaks at this stage, then the guys that were killed by him would become a complete loss.』

『B-but…..!』

『What was with that commotion just now anyway.
The ones who are mentally driven into a corner are more like you guys.』

『Kh……』

After a while, the door of the isolation cell (Sin Examination Room?) opened.

“Number 15, come out”

I think this voice was one of the ghosts.

I come out of the isolation cell like I was asked.

When I did――

“Congratulation!”

The hooded black-clad men are smiling and welcoming me with an applause.

“Come, now with this you are also a member of 〈Yatagarasu〉.
The numerous sins you have committed until now have been forgiven and you have been reborn as a holy emissary of Evil God-sama.”

“……sins I’ve committed, you say, the boobs of my maid, Steph――”

“Come, with this you are now free!
You can eat anything you like from all the things you see here.
Eat all you want with gratitude to Evil God-sama!”

Drowning out my words, the host person said.
……Looking at him properly, the veins on his forehead are popping out.

The space in front of the isolation cell became a small banquet.

Delicious looking bread, meats, fishes, and soups are lined up.

I naturally drew closer to those and started devouring them.

…..Right, well, since Melby shared some of her snacks with me I wasn’t that famished, but I…….thought it would be best to make them think that.

――Like this, the two week long Sin Examination has ended.

……Thanks to that, I guess I can’t say that my own sinfulness didn’t leave a deep impression in me.
