Chaper 3 – Starting Adventure
“This world is.. woah, what the heck is this monster paradise.”
“That world is already in the level of civilization where they are able to hunt for food”
“Pass Pass, that still stone age isn’t it? Such backwater world is a no. How about that one?”
“This world.. is a matrimonial based one, women is the dominant one there”
“Pass, Turning that kind of common sense upside down is not something I want to do. That one?”
“That one doesn’t have any human living. They all became extinct after an uprising by robot it seems”
“Me and Floria becoming that world Adam and Eve is kinda off too..”
“Renya you pervert~”
“With just that word you reacted this far means you are worse don’t you think?”
“Geez I’m just joking” says Floria while hugging Renya arms, smiling wide. He can feel Floria’s certain soft part in his arm so he just stays silent. Even if he is now a pseudo god, in the end he is still a healthy guy. Being together with a girl for a long time makes a man spoiled is a common sense.
They continue searching while merrily frolicking around like that but it’s kinda hard to get a world which satisfy Renya’s requirement. Even after all that, Renya don’t think of descending into any world as a living god. Meaning, He wants to try living as a part of the world he choose to be in while still using his godly power if needed. He doesn’t want to be revered as a god in the first place. “Too much trouble” as Renya curtly says.
(But really that Floria, how does she manage to search me throughout all this many worlds…)
What Renya did now is only peeking through the world roughly, what Floria did is totally different. She observes each and every human until the last detail, and if she didn’t find any suitable candidate she moves to another world and start the search again. Just how much she sacrifices for that kind of “odd jobs”? Even if a god’s time is close to infinity, while having her dad in that poor condition right in front of her eyes, how much did Floria suffer while looking for a being to put an end to her dad? Renya is contemplating about Floria’s trouble until now.
That’s why seeing Floria having a bright smile like that now really giving me a peace of mind.
“Renya, Renya, how about this world?”
“What about that one?”
“Lesse, it’s a world ruled by soft-bodied alien”
“That’s already not mankind anymore doesn’t it?”
“To top it off there also no civilization left, most of it is just seas”
“Just one step wrong and it become like that? Really the course of nature is terrifying”
“Well it’s just normal, there are even several millions of world created and destroyed by the seconds. That is the principle of the universe”
Well it’s just like what Floria said, if you think about ‘what if’ possibilities, the number of parallel world created are too absurd too count. Those branching world can be said as a parallel world that is alike but different from its original. And for a god to be able to observe all such possibilities is not anything special.
With just one action I can increase the number of worlds! That kind of fact blow me off my feet but when he think over it again, it’s not something that human or even gods should worry over.
The two of them keep on searching like that for a while. If others look at them, they don’t give of any romantic vibe given by how serious both of them are. It just like newlywed discussing seriously about their new home.
“This one world… it has science and magic civilization combined and the level is a bit higher than the usual fantasy genre novel. There’s also monarchy and democratic nations too. It’s surprisingly had a lot genre mixed together”
“But Renya’s power is perfectly fit in this kind of world right? They also had guns you know? Even if it was treated as a lost technology”
“Woah, really? Then did they also have a flying machine that is different from a plane?”
“n~, seems like they haven’t reach that level yet. But the civilization level of each countries is kinda high.. for a fantasy world standard that is”
“Floria is also kinda fantasy for me”
“Isn’t the Renya now is the same?”
“Oh that’s right…… The me now if it was in RPG game would be a level 1 god”
“Strictly speaking, it was pseudo god… maybe? A god that is like a human? A human that is like a god?”
“Which one is it? And how does that differ?”
“nwell, still not a completed god-feel? Incomplete like once you go to another world, you won’t be able to get out of there until your entire god’s power incarnate… kind of things?”
“That one.. isn’t it a super important fact that I should know? That means I can’t reset once I start right?”
“Basically, we can freely do what want if there’s no other god resides in that world. It’s not like we can ask other god to send us out from that world right? And we will also get bind down by that world nature law until Renya power matures“
“Are you also receives any similar restriction Floria?”
“Nope, not in my case. But in Renya’s case, because Renya is in a way ‘being reborn’ by matters from that chosen world, it will takes a lot of time to raise your divine power (mana for the gods) until it was enough to be able to get out from that world. by the amount of divine power Renya has when you just being ‘reborn’ is impossible”
“Ah, I forgot that I’m now just a spiritual body…”
Renya just scratches his head realizing that he got most of his senses numb from doing training after training for a long time. He forgot that he had thrown his physical body after getting to the god’s realm and accepting Floria ‘trial’. He being accustomed to that state is all thanks to his amazing adaptive ability. No, in reality he just doesn’t have time to worry about other things being faced off by that macho god of war.
“Anyway back to this world, it got many similarities to Renya world. Most of the food and tool’s name were similar. I think it won’t take too much trouble to adapt”
“Hmm… yeah, having many things in similar might be convenient”
“But there’s many threatening things can be easily be seen even from here, not to the level of a dark age reigned by a demon king though”
“Well even if there’s one I think we can just beat it right?”
“But despite the high culture level, the population overall is kinda low. Ah aren’t you glad that polygamy is legalized here?”
“Wait, why did I have to be glad at it? And anyway is that even important?”
“Isn’t it? Daddy isn’t into that so he’s different but when there are still many gods reside here, they’re all mostly scrambling fighting against each other in order to get the most human woman and goddesses as they can”
“Knowing most legend and myth about the gods I can imagine about it a bit but… practice some restrain you pervert gods!”
To put a young maiden (according to her appearance that is. She already live longer than most human) common sense of man woman relationship in such peculiar way, Renya can only curses the gods that no longer here for giving her bad influences.
But even if Renya think that way logically, He also have a yearning feeling for a live surrounded by beautiful girls. How can he not be? On top of him being mentally healthy young male, he also had spent more than a century isolating himself to train for his battle.
Having mentally aged doesn’t mean that his instinct as a man wither away.
Harem, he’s philosophic level is not that high enough to not make him gets excited by that word.
“Well even if polygamy legalization isn’t exist Renya can just build a country that legalizes it anyway”
“You make it sound like I will do anything in order to get a harem”
“………… Well that thing aside. I just want you to stop focusing only on it. Harem isn’t the only fun things that we can do there right?”
“As expected Renya is also man eh? Good thing that Renya are honest”
“My excuse won’t do much to Floria right? We’ve been together for soo long after all”
“And even after spending that long time Renya still hasn’t tries to do anything weird with me. Honestly, for giving you such a difficult trial. I have readied myself so I can accept your advance anytime you know?”
“Stu~pid. Well... indeed it was some unreasonable method and demand when you took me here Floria. But after knowing the circumstances it felt wrong to push all the blame to you”
“The gods’ standards aren’t like that. If you say you want my body as an advance payment for your reward I would accept that”
“Man is an organism that always wants to looks cool you know? Even your father also like that in a way. So how can I possibly demand such thing from Floria?”
With Renya sounds like he just making excuse, Floria just smiles at him. A cherubic smile without any impurities, what could be hidden underneath?
“Anyway, if I were to lost to another world, that world seems to be a rather better place to get lost to. Well I have confidence that I can deal with most problem though”
“Yeah I know, but having our knowledge matched with that world’s will be more convenient. It is our first time after all”
“Hmm that’s true. It’s better than, let’s see, if we saw some fruit like apple, and then ask its names just to find out some weird name. Places with common knowledge are definitely better.”
It’s just Renya being sensitive about weird things.
“Then let’s go with this world. Renya, you physical body will rebirth once you transfer there. Then I’m gonna track your location and descend there. Um! That sound like a plan”
“Yeah let’s do that. But are you ok with that Floria? I mean if you stay here then you can become the one and only divinity here right? And after all you have a better quality as a god compared to your father”
“Maybe it’s true, but being all alone and acting as the one and only supreme god is boring! Tampering the mortal world is not that fun either. I feel like I might even destroy two or three world because of my boredom”
“Okay I understand. I’ll take it as my responsibility to take care of you. Rather, don’t stay behind! Floria, one way or other you are more dangerous than your father”
With one step wrong, the worst god of destruction might be born from that silly joke. Well, it’s not like Renya planned to leave Floria behind. He feels bad leaving her here alone. After all, if he is the one who got left behind, he felt that he might also do the same thing as Floria said before.
“By the way, can I use my ’Divine Armaments’ that I create there?”
“Yes you can. Those things that stored inside ‘Renya’s world’ are already like Renya’s own god power”
“Well that’s good to hear. But then again, from myth and legend, I think I hear that most gods only have at most 3 pieces of divine armaments…… maybe I’m the only one who made this much haha”
“Don’t mind it too much. After all, gods used divine armaments as a limiter for their tremendous power that is hard to control. For gods that have similar case like Renya where they aren’t strong enough by themselves, possessing many divine armaments isn’t that all weird”
“Oh…… god is a cheat as expected. But now I’m also one though”
“Oh as expected of Renya, you understand things fast! Well enough talk. I’m going to send you to this world. Are you ready?”
“I’ll entrust you that Floria. Do it with a bang!”
While Floria focusing her power, Renya absent-mindlessly stares at the hut surrounding. The dining room that he already familiar with, library where he study hard, workshop where he makes his tools while researching and improving them, bedroom where he mostly sleep like a baby after the hard training. And then the outside view, also that wasteland where he fight numerous time. He can’t help reminiscing about all the time passed since he got here. And lastly that peaceful looks on that troublesome war god as he me this demise.
(Don’t worry war god, just as your request, I will take responsibility of taking care of your daughter)
He doesn’t mean it, but its kinda sound like a talk to his father in law to be before getting married. Realizing that, he puts on a bitter smile. At the same time, Renya’s field of vision is being filled with dazzling light. Just like that day when he came to the god realm. Getting through the same door, Renya’s existence is thrown into another world.
Floria, having detected Renya’s rebirth while closing her eyes, is also reminiscing about her father that aren’t here anymore. By realizing her father wish has the same meaning as eternal separation with him. She understands it, and she had prepared her heart for it. Even though she was a goddess, that fact was still heavy for Floria that is still a teenage girl if she was converted into a human girl. But by exchanging silly talk with Renya and being asked to come along together make her feel better.
“I think I’ll be alright as long as I’m with Renya. That’s why please…”
Please, watch over this newborn young god. Watch over him so he will get a successful future. Give him that divine protection from the war god that had judged numerous other gods. Just like that, Floria prays while chasing Renya’s existence, throwing herself inside the dazzling light.
And then, the god realm which has lost its owner, as if it has done its purpose, silently crumbles to nothingness.
