I Met the Male Lead in Prison - Chapter 247
4. Until two discordant roses become an ensemble (2)
I thought there was a point in what Ricdorian said. That would be the case, because the note sent by God contained something absurd even when I thought about it.
‘Pervert……. Mmm, indeed.’
I guess we can call it that.
The expression used by Ricdorian was not used in the commonly used sense of ‘having a perverted dysphoria’.
Is it so strange that there is no other choice but to express it like this. It’s a vulgar word, is it?.
“Ricdorian, what was the first thing we did?”
I asked one more time even though we had already talked about it a while ago. Of course, I didn’t ask because I didn’t know, but it was to reveal this absurdity more effectively.
“…… It was about filling the dimensional rift, right?”
“That’s right. How much did we suffer for it? In fact, it was because God didn’t tell us properly! We found out later that it was an unnecessary hardship, right?”
Ricdorian and I belonged to a special case. First of all, Ricdorian was not the soul of this world.
In my case, I was born in this world, but I stayed in the world where Lenag and Francia were, and unintentionally became deeply involved with the roses and the fate of the other side, so as a result, I became a soul that was neither one nor the other.
I don’t know what this state is called, but God said I was a soul that couldn’t belong to either side right now.
That would be correct.
Anyway, since neither of us are souls belonging to this world, we are less affected by the world.
From the perspective of the manager of this side of the world, we are no different from illegal aliens, or that we are staying thanks to negotiations with God from the other side.
First of all, I had an obligation to stay here for the rest of my life.
The manager of this side of the world seems to have asked for a few things as a price for Ricdorian and Chaser staying here, and it seems that it coincides with God’s request to us.
God’s interest must have been consistent right? As a result, we kept going round and round.
That was the first request. We soldered the barriers between dimensions that God couldn’t touch with the things handed over to us and our power.
“Yes. Although I asked God first…….”
I miss Francia and Lenag. This feeling was truly sincere. But I can’t get rid of the feeling that God sees us as free labor.
“What is it, a soul? Return the soul. What kind of illegal alien collectors are we?”
Unable to hold back my anger, I knocked on the table, and the note fell to the floor instead of fluttering around.
Pudding, who was waiting on the floor, jumped up and touched it with its forepaw.
“Pudding, don’t touch it. Dirty.”
– Nyan! I feel a strange power, human!
“I guess so.”
God sent it, so it must be so. I looked at the contents filled with cursive writing with a cold expression.
The more I looked at it, the more the ridiculous content filled my eyes.
[Return souls from another world (0/10)]
10? TEN? There is the content, but the number written there made me dumbfounded even more.
God must have thought of us as a free manpower that he really utilized to the fullest.
Starting with a handsome man, to a small snow leopard sitting calmly on the ground and the calm eyes of a small whale floating in the air.
Three pairs of eyes focused on me. They are truly pure and blind eyes that have not changed for a long time.
To be precise, they’re waiting for my decision. After much thought, I sighed.
It was impossible to reject anyway.
I picked up the note and crumpled it in my hand. My anger calmed down before I knew it and I stared at my hand with a calm, nonchalant expression.
…… Even so, I will never forget it.
“Fine. Let’s do it.”
It’s been 6 years since I came here with Ricdorian. There are a lot of differences between this world and the world where Francia and Lenag are, but if there is one that stands out in particular, it will be the caste system.
Second, to the people of this world, Ricdorian and I are very special people.
It wasn’t just about the looks.
Even if I, like the people in the neighborhood, had dark hair and dark eyes, Ricdorian stood out quite a bit.
In addition, he was a pretty, neat, and beautiful handsome man that ordinary people couldn’t even fathom.
This isn’t a farce, it’s the truth. No one can deny it.
As I said, there was one thing that was different, not just in looks.
“Sister? You must be going out!”
A welcome voice greeted us when I left the gate with Ricdorian.
When I turned my head, I saw the student next door wearing comfortable clothes. She’s not a student anymore. The youngest daughter next door was waving her hand.
“It’s been a while!”
The youngest daughter next door said that she had just become a freshman.
She’s always so bright. She seemed to have no worries or wrinkles, and I would smile just by looking at her.
“Yes, Jia. It’s the weekend, aren’t you going somewhere to play?”
“I’ve been busy all week, so I have to take a break on the weekend. Sister……. ugh It’s hard to eat and live.”
Earning money isn’t easy, she shook her head.
“Come to think of it, my brother asked if Sister was doing well.”
Having lived next door for six years, it was true that we became close to the family from that house, almost like relatives.
“Yes! It’s been a while since he’s seen your face…….”
“Are you done?”
I felt a solid arm wrapped around my waist, and then a face suddenly came out over my shoulder.
Glancing at Ricdorian, he had a blue chill wrapped around his face, just like he did when he was the Grand Duke before.
…… he’s upset.
However, the youngest daughter next door rather not noticed.
“Oh, hello, Brother! What I am saying is that, Sister, my Brother said he wants to….”
“Wants to see?”
However, when Ricdorian’s expression turned cold, she did not fail to recognize this.
I hurriedly walked over to Ricdorian’s side and covered him with my sleeve.
“Ahahaha……. sorry. Because our house’s child is very shy.”
I had been hiding his face for six years already, but I didn’t bother pointing it out.
For some reason, Ricdorian hated the next-door son very much, and this reason was not something I would have guessed. So instead of pointing it out, I would sneak him over like this.
Fortunately, the youngest daughter next door quickly moved on.
“So Sister, where are you going today? A date?”
“Date…… Um, maybe?”
Well, it is a date. Just the purpose will not be sweet.
“I think Sister and Brother seem to be dating and living together for a long time. You look good!”
The aunt next door used to ask, insinuating if me and Ricdorian were not married. We can’t get married here, so we’ll just stay a little while longer, I said.
“…… look good?”
Ricdorian relaxed his expression and asked. Jia quickly nodded.
“Yes. Very. My mom asks why not get married when you’re so close, but I have a different opinion.”
She clenched her fists and said.
“There are times when just being by the side is good. It’s thrilling and heartbreaking enough. If that’s the case, why does it matter if there’s an engagement?”
I tilted my head at the unfamiliar word. Isn’t it usually called marriage?
In that world, it seemed that engagements and marriage were used a lot. I miss the other world again.
Ricdorian seemed to be muttering with a pensive expression for some reason.
“You sound like you’ve been in love before?”
“Am I? No? I’ve never tried it. Sister.”
It was because of Sister and Brother, she said with tears in her eyes.
I smiled at her.
“Why? I think you must be popular.”
“Not really. Not only am I not popular, but you know that popularity is not just being popular with people who are not, right?”
“Hmm. I think there’s definitely another kind of popularity.”
I said it was nothing and shook my head gently.
At the same time, the hand on my shoulder didn’t stop, which the youngest daughter next door probably couldn’t see.
The bluish light that leaked faintly seeped into my hand.
“Sister, have a good trip!”
After parting ways with the youngest daughter next door and walking for a long time, when we passed through an alley, Ricdorian finally spoke.
“Iana, did you clean it up? Again.”
“Um, yes. Well. Yes.”
The blue light was still clinging to my fingertips.
“Don’t use too much force. Even if it’s not, the environment is different from the other world……. I don’t know what side effects will come if it’s exhausted.”
I nodded my head as if I agreed with Ricdorian’s worried words.
“Yes I will. Don’t worry too much. Because I didn’t spend much. And…….”
I let out a deep sigh as I recalled the area around Yoon Jia’s shoulder a moment ago.
“The girl next door to us was too popular with ‘others’.”
Ricdorian nodded his head grimly in agreement.
“I don’t think there would be anything good about being so popular with the spirits. Especially in this world.”
The ‘spirit’ referred to here was simply a ‘ghost’ in the language of this world. Souls who died but did not leave, or fragments cut in half.
This was the biggest difference between me and Ricdorian from the ordinary people here.
Those of us with otherworldly powers could ironically see the spiritual powers of this world: spirits and ghosts.
…… Where are we going to use this for?
Until now, I thought it was a really annoying option, but who knew?
Thanks to this power, I will be able to fulfill God’s absurd request.
When we finally arrived at the first milestone set by God, Ricdorian and I groaned.
“…… Rose, do we really have to do this?”
“Ugh. I guess so. Rian.”
In the dark alleyway, above the note God gave me, a black compass was spinning round and round.
This means that this is the exact destination. There was only one person in this alley.
No, to be precise, there was only one boy standing, and he was a middle school student, wearing a school uniform.
In front of the boy, countless children in the same school uniform lay face down on the floor.
Did they have a fight?
I had a strong feeling that it was one-to-many. The boy who was the only one standing had no wounds on his body even though his school uniform tie was disheveled, and all the fallen children were moaning with wounds.
And the standing boy slowly raised his head.
He was a boy with a pure white face and a neat feeling. But the face frowned in an instant, and soon he raised his hand and twisted his lips.
“Kukuhk, this body is the warlock of the Rosifal Empire, kuk, kukuhk. Who dares!”
I was startled and remembered what God had told me.
After giving me the order, God personally sent me another letter, informing me of precautions.
Although I had heard beforehand that the souls who came to this world would be insane…….
“Kukuhk, hahaha, the humans here! Are all weak! Hahahaha!”
I saw the boy and the fallen children once more.
Seeing the boy touching his forehead with his left arm made me even more stunned.
You mean I have to watch this nine more times?
