–Ahh, I can't stand it anymore.
Just the thought of those two battling with their appet.i.tes inside of the building was more than she could bear.
And now that her thirst had reached its limits, a most convenient fantasy seemed to whisper into her ear like a demon.
–Perhaps that man is only incredibly skilled with controlling plants. He may not have much in terms of attack ability after all?
Yes, it must be so.
In that case, the only one she needed to be wary of was the young rank-two G.o.d.
She didn't need to rely on these useless villagers. She could just sneak up behind him and attack.
She could get rid of those pesky vines by removing the water so that they would shrivel up.
Such seductions penetrated her heart.
It was too simple…she couldn't help wondering about that as well. But if she were the kind of person who allowed logic to interfere with her hunger, then she never would have destroyed a kingdom in the first place.
And so Moral licked her lips with a near drunken expression. Then she quietly moved away from the villagers and went to the back of the building.
There, without chanting, she used water magic to freeze the planks on the walls. And then she used acid to silently carve away at it.
Once the walls grew thin, the vines came popping out. But Moral calmly flicked her wrist.
And then, her magic caused the vines to dry up in an instant. And they fell lifelessly to the ground and broke.
Now, there was nothing left to protect that boy and the old man.
How would the greed of such strong people taste like?
"Hehehe. Good evening. Since you two shut yourselves up for so long, I thought I would pay you a visit."
Her voice was dreamlike but also as ravenous as a lioness. She pushed through the dried vined and stepped foot into the bright, garden of flowers.
However, the residents were not sitting around idly.
"You! To come and antagonize me so directly! Who do you think you are!!"
Darten gathered magic into his fist and prepared to strike her.
"Oh, let's not do that."
As if she had read his movements, Moral dodged his fist with all the grace of a dancer. And then she took a step to the side.
Darten saw what Moral was pointing her foot at, and he raised his voice.
She was targetting Qudels, who stood behind him.
Yes. Even she did not think she could beat Darten with fists.
In other words, she had been targetting Qudels from the beginning.
Under that calm, and quite average face, lay such thick emotion that she was nearly choked by it.
"Hehe. Oh, what glorious feelings lie beyond those gla.s.ses of yours? Won't you tell me?"
Moral said as she grabbed Qudels and pressed against his thick chest.
And then she took off his gla.s.ses.
Her scream was like silk being torn apart.
What was there…no, not there?
There were no eyes or brows. Just plain skin spread over his face.
Not only that, but his face then split in half, and numerous tentacles were unleashed.
"Ah! Noooo! Help me!!"
The green tentacles wrapped around her. Moral screamed and begged for help.
However, her trusty villagers were busy partying and drinking.
In fact, Qudels had put up a sound-proof barrier, and so they could not hear her.
She screamed and screamed. But even the G.o.ds in heaven took no notice.
"Tsk. What are these things! Hey, don't touch that! Ah! How dare you!!"
She used magic to try and tear the tentacles away, but the tentacles merely absorbed her magic.
However, the tentacles did not hurt… If anything, they moved gently, as if their purpose was to make her feel good.
"That's amazing. It's just as you said, brother."
Darten muttered as he watched with folded arms.
And then a middle-aged man popped out from a bed of vines.
"Yes, it was much easier than I was expecting. Very good. But since she was someone who is faithful to her greed, I knew she wouldn't be able to stop herself. And she would try and attack us from the back. I also knew that she would ignore you and try and attack me first."
Qudels explained this in a calm voice. Moral felt rage well up within her.
"d.a.m.n you! You really thought this out, you dirty old man! Pervert! Ah…no… Stop it! It's making me feel strange!!"
"Isn't it because it's what you want? After all, it is made by Darten's power of the mirror. It is following your greed and doing what you wish. Please don't blame it on other people."
Qudels said coldly as he looked down at Moral.
While Darten looked like a muscle brain, his real attribute was earth. And a feature of that was the mirror, which was the embodiment of the sun.
After Qudels had inspected him, he realized that he not only unleashed light, but he could temporarily use an enemy's abilities or reflect them. His power would increase the stronger the enemy was… This was a G.o.d of war with a fairly tricky way of protecting people.
However, Darten could not copy or reflect power that he did not understand, and so his lack of knowledge was dragging him down.
"Now, let's return you to the heavens. Even I cannot control a rank-one G.o.d that has gone rogue."
"No! NOOO! Don't do that! They'll seal me again if I return now!!"
Considering what she liked to do, that seemed like a reasonable enough reaction.
If let free, she wouldn't be able to stop herself from sucking everyone dry.
However, someone grabbed Qudels' hand just as he was preparing the magic to send her back.
He turned around to see Darten looking very thoughtful.
"Uh, brother. About that… Can't we both stay and be wors.h.i.+pped here?"
"Why? I don't see any merit in splitting the village between two faiths. Besides, I don't think you can stop her when she gets out of hand."
Qudels was puzzled at this sudden suggestion.
It would clearly be better for Darten if she was not here.
"You know, I wasn't able to come down here for so long too… And, I just hated it, you know? I know I'm asking too much from you, but can't you do something?"
Darten's large shoulders slumped as he looked at Qudels pleadingly.
He looked like an abandoned puppy. Qudels couldn't help but chuckle.
"A G.o.d is asking someone who isn't for a favor? d.a.m.n it…don't you understand your position?"
"Uhhh… Wow, I'm so lame."
Darten looked even more gloomy. Qudels sighed.
"Very well. We shall put that matter on hold for now. But I wouldn't get my hopes up too high."
Darten's face brightened up. But he was quickly interrupted.
"How-how dare you!!"
Who could it be?
They turned around to see Moral, who was still bound up.
She had struggled so much that her already revealing outfit was now no longer fit for a family audience.
And it was in such a state that she howled.
"Why am I being pitied by someone lower than me! You're talking nonsense!!"
That thing called pride.
Qudels couldn't help but clap.
"So, you wish to return to the heavens?"
"Ha! Just you try it! One day, I will escape again and have my revenge! When that day comes, I will leave only sadness and despair and take every other emotion from you…"
Qudels inspected her face in order to see if she meant it. Moral thrashed around in an attempt to hit him.
Just then, one of the tentacles smacked Qudels in the face and his gla.s.ses went flying.
Suddenly, Moral's face grew soft and she stopped moving.
Her cheeks looked a little red.
"I'm terribly sorry, but won't you please admit your defeat? Or else, stricter measures will have to be enforced."
Qudels said sternly. However, Moral was now just staring dumbly at his face and nodding.
