Genocide Online ~ Playtime Diary of an Evil Young Girl ~
- Belzenstock City
— Ah, we have arrived. In front of our eyes is a city* resembling the towns in Mediterranean coasts that are lined with white square buildings.
Before entering the city, I need to do what I have been thinking along our way here ….
“We’ve finally arrived!”
“… Yes, we have.”
This is where I bid Miss Rena farewell …. I feel lonely somehow. If I could, I want to play with her more.
“You don’t look happy, what’s wrong?”
Say it, tell her …!
“Um, it’s ….”
It’s no time for the asocial personality move!! Hurry up and say it, gross nerd!!
“Um! Um, I, I ….”
“What is it?”
Calm down, take a deep breath …. Come on, breathe in, and out …. No good, my hands are shaking. Even though it’s just a game, I feel like my palms are sweating ….
Our first encounter was the worst. With my tongue was grasped, I was threatened with a knife** in my mouth. I was forcibly taken to the front line as well, but —.
“Um … with me ….”
— Even so, the adventure with her has been fun; it was nice to show off my knowledge, and her concern for me makes me very happy. There are many scary things about her, but her surprisingly childish innocent side makes me unable to take my eyes off of her, as well as her subtle carelessness against the opposite sex …. Above all, —
“— A-after knowing you personally, I think I want to be your friend!”
I said it! I finally said it! I can’t take back what I said now.
“I’m scared, and you can be overbearing sometimes, but at the same time childish and nosy, too, I think! We have only known each other for a short while, but ….”
“That’s why, be my friend …. Please register me as your friend!”
I said it …. Though I have no regrets, I feel a little scared seeing her saying nothing at all, but … could she be taken aback? Is she wondering why an asocial gross nerd like me being so ecstatic in becoming her friend? If she refuses, I shall graciously accept it —
“… I don’t mind.”
“— Huh?! R-really?!”
“Yes, in the first place, I was thinking that you could perhaps teach me a lot of things while we’re in this city.”
“T-thank you very much! I will do my best to teach you!!”
— Hooray!! She has registered me as her friend!! And even though it’s short, I can still play together with her while we’re in this city!!
“… Besides, you seem to notice me.”
It feels like as if she poured cold water on me with that remark.
W-what should I do …? Doesn’t what I said to her earlier seem like a confession from a third-party point of view —?! I’m such an idiot —!!!!
While agonizing over the shame I have caused myself from the mess I made —.
“I’m new to having friends, so please teach me properly.”
— Her first time? With just a few words from her, I have already recovered from my earlier predicament. I guess I’m relatively simple.
“Hee hee, this is the first time other people aside from my mother who has properly noticed me ….”
Apparently, she does not take it as a confession. I feel somewhat complicated, as I’m not sure whether to feel happy or sad. But I tell myself calmly that it’s to be expected due to her subtle carelessness toward the opposite sex, as well as her natural innocence.
“Please take care of me, Mr. Yuu.”
