System lady, please, can I have my bloodline strengthening now?

“It’s already done.”

Huh? It’s done? Already? What about the special effects?

“And what kind of special effects does our valued host want? A flash of lightning? The earth shaking perhaps?”

Maybe not the earth shaking, but at least have a lightshow. It just feels lacking if you’re so slipshod about the whole strengthening.

“What if Yamabe Takuma comes looking again, because of your lightshow?”

Yamabe… You know what, maybe we don’t need special effects.

“Smart.”

Heheh, don’t praise me like that, my head will get big.

“That wasn’t praise. But there’s something the system has to inform you about, valued host.”

What’s that?

“The most recent strengthening used up one hundred thousand points.”

What the @#$? How many thousands?

Why don’t you just go rob a bank?

“Isn’t that what your system is doing already?”

I thought it was free…

By the way, why don’t I feel any different after being strengthened? And let’s be clear here, if the effects aren’t good, I want a refund!

“Oho? Someone is throwing a tantrum now. Don’t worry, when the time comes, the strengthening effect will activate on its own.”

Even though I still felt like I had been robbed, it was an undeniable fact that everything I had right now was given to me by the system. Charging me a fee was only to be expected. The system had even warned me in the past that each strengthening would cost ten times as much as the previous. Meaning, to strengthen this one of a kind bloodline, the first strengthening would cost ten thousand while the next would cost a hundred thousand… Nothing to find fault with there… but it was still a little expensive… like punch me in the nose and charge me a fee for it kind of expensive.

With the strengthening out of the way, I had a brief chat with Chiyo Hanataba before leaving the washroom separately.

Yamabe Takuma was seated in his chair when I walked out. Beside him was that black-haired waitress, shivering profusely as she clutched onto her serving platter for dear life.

“Goddess, you’re back. I had some red ginger tea prepared.” He enthusiastically pushed a half full white bowl up to me. “It’s still hot, perhaps you can drink it later.”

“Thanks…” As I looked at his glowing eyes, I couldn’t help but recoil a little, hairs standing on ends from disgust. However, I still kept my silence. I knew now wasn’t the time to harp on the issue of my gender. I couldn’t even get a normal person to get my gender right, let alone Yamabe, who was mentally unstable right now.

But red ginger tea huh… yuck… that should be something you give to your bride or your fiancee when she visits your parents.

“Goddess, you should have more hot drinks, it’s better for you. If you feel unwell anywhere, tell me, I will find a doctor for you. Even though most of the people outside are dead, I’m sure if we look hard enough, we can still find one.” Yamabe Takuma passionately looked into my eyes. “Drink, you will feel much better once you do.”

Like heck I will, I’m a man, I don’t drink that kind of stuff for brides.

I did not pick up the tea. Rather, I cleared my throat lightly and said in a tense voice, “Yamabe Takuma, there’s something I need to discuss with you.”

“Go ahead, my Goddess, I’m all ears.”

“It’s like this. I’m here to investigate the missing soldiers who came to this theme park…” I briefly explained my objectives. “I’m here to search the park, and if I were to find any survivors, my job would be to escort them to the surface. We plan to establish a safe zone up above, but we need more combatants for that. If it’s you, I’m sure we can establish one in no time at all. I hope that you can help me with this, is that okay?”

Having said all that, I even gave him a yearning look to seal the deal… Absolutely disgusting, but his ability was truly worth the effort.

“If it’s the Goddess asking, I will never say no. Fulfilling the desires of my Goddess is what I live for!”

Yamabe swore in an oath-like fashion.

Honestly, if I didn’t know better, I would have never associated someone so innocent with a person who had been betrayed by his own parents. Even if they had their own reasons, it was still a betrayal to him.

At the end of the day, there was no right or wrong in this unfortuantematter, but to kill your own parents…

Sigh… sometimes you had to ignore the small details in order to accomplish the greater goal. With how powerful his ability was, at least a temporary cooperation could be forgiven. There weren’t that many survivors left… With this kid, we could at least guarantee the safety of the zone.

And it wasn’t like he did not have his own reasons too. The situation being what it was, surely no one would mind if I made this decision for the greater good of the survivors… Plus, with him at my side, I could set aside more time to search for survivors.

Maybe we can even break out of this damned lockdown!

No matter how I looked at it, he was a necessary ally. And the way to attain this ally was… Well, at least I don’t have to cross dress. As for my gender… it’s not like he asked me. As an honest boy, I won’t lie but I’m not going to tattle on myself either.

“Thank you.” I breathed a sigh of relief at his quick acceptance.

He was now an integral part of my plans for a safe zone, so being able to secure his aid so easily was a huge boon.

Yet barely a second later, he seemed to be hesitating, “Goddess, there’s something I need to tell you as well…”

“What’s that?”

He lowered his head and muttered in a barely audible whisper, “I’ve actually killed some survivors before…”

“Oh… hmm… about that… as long as you cooperate with me sincerely, I can ask my superiors to turn a blind eye to that. After all, you weren’t in the right state of mind when the incident happened…”

“Really?” His eyes lit up.

“Really. You’re important to my future plans. And anyone in your shoes would have acted the same…” I took a deep breath at that point. “As long as you give your best in the upcoming operation, I will vouch for you.”

“That’s great.” He thumped his chest. “Then what should I do next, my Goddess. I’m yours to command!”
