Instead of suddenly ‘possessing’ Narikin, I first possess the little bird Turan, exploring the situation around me. A room made of wood – it looks like a ship’s cabin. It seems that they are using a boat to go to the Holy Kingdom.
On Narikin’s shoulder, I chirped three times and seven beats, “Pippi Pippi, Pippi Pippi, Pippi Pippi Pippi Pippi” as a signal.
“Oh, are you Master? Wait for a second, I’ll link my mind to you–how about now?”
“This is…convenient. I’m glad I made Narikin as a living armor.”
It seems that if you become an item type monster, you can use telepathy by default.
But there seems to be only Rokufa and Toy’s [possessed] Nana around. Turan(me), who can’t speak with a bird’s throat, will have to depend on Narikin, who can talk normally.
“……..Is that so?”
“Narikin, what does Master say?”
“Oh, since Bird (Turan) can’t use telepathy, he can’t talk to us unless it’s trough Narikin… well, never mind.”
He proceeds to explain to Rokufa.
“It looks like I can still possess it. I’ll possess it once a day as planned, and you’ll be back if I can’t, that’s what I would like to say, but… since we are on the ship, we can’t do that.”
“Oh, I didn’t think it through.”
“If you don’t hear from me when you arrive, wait a day. There’s a chance I forgot to contact you, or the timing might not be right.”
“Narikin, what did the master say?”
He proceeds to explain to Rokufa.
I wonder if I should stop being stingy and replace this bird with a Magic Sword type monster.
That way, we could have had a conversation all together at once.
“I will tell you the summary, so you don’t need to ask me each time.”
“Okay, Nariki… hmm? Hey, what’s going on here?”
“Rokufa? …Um no? Rokuko-sama…”
Suddenly the atmosphere changes. I see, so this is what it’s like when you’re possessed, and I look at Rokufa, who is possessed by Rokuko.
It’s a blue-haired Rokuko, she looks like Rokuko, it’s an almost complete clone of Rokuko.
“Rokuko… follow the procedure.”
“That’s… Kehma? You are cute!”
“Let’s ta–…. Oi! Stop it!”
I protest to Rokufa by flailing around, who has been hugging me tightly. I managed to get my right-wing out of her restraints and flap it.
“I don’t know what he’s saying, “peeps”? Ufufu, cute.”
“Master says, please follow the procedure and let me go.”
“Oh, yeah? I was going to put it between my cleavage. Like this, it’s nice and tucked in, right here.”
“Please don’t do that.”
Narikin takes me down, and Rokufa (Rokuko) lets me go.
I flapped my wings and sit on top of Narikin’s head.
Rokufa instead tucked the little bird Seaver into her cleavage.
“Ummm… ‘recent Rokuko are too aggressive, its too much…'”
“Oh, Kehma-sama, may I… May I have a word?”
Nana (Toy) raises a small hand. Is she tapping on telepathic communication, or is she reading my mind… well, whatever.
“As for what Rokuko-sama said and did, come to think of it, I heard a rumor that the tavern in Pavuera has ‘a succubus’ recently, Could that be the reason?”
“Are you saying she’s getting a bad influence from the succubus…”
“Exactly, after all, dungeons are influenced by its residents.”
Hmm? I give a shook my head at Nana’s (Toy) statement.
“Didn’t she just use the succubus sister’s ero-story for reference?”
“I see, that might be part of it, but dungeon is a demi-god, you know? The Dungeon behaviors are determined by their environment, right? …You don’t know?”
Demi-God. If the Dark God is the [father], then they are definitely is Childs of God. Their lifespan is also unknown.
The gods of this world… do they governed some aspect? So, if each dungeon core controls its area… wait, now that if I looked back…, I think that their nature is influenced by their dungeon types, such as their obsession with alcohol or bathing or even food.
So that’s it, huh?
That’s what happened to Rokuko these days since our dungeon is moving to pink(ero) direction; it means she is also influenced by it to some extent.
Hmm? So, when we renovate the dungeon, was it a bad idea to make it easier to enter the succubus village?
“I’m feeling a little dizzy…”
“Because we’re on a ship.”
“ah right, we are cruising…. is it a sea? I want to take a look outside the room then.”
“Then it’s better to come again tomorrow noon, It’s night now, and the seas are dark and dangerous at night, so we can’t go out on the deck.”
They are talking about the ship.
“Thank you for the important information. I was able to think about the dungeon renovation idea for a bit, so that’s about it for today. I’ll get back to you tomorrow.”
“Yes, I understand. I’ll be waiting for you tomorrow, then.”
“What? is Kehma leaving? Well, I’ll go home too. I’ll use Seaver tomorrow.”
Thus, when I cut off the ‘possession’ and returned to the dungeon’s master room, I found Rokuko sleeping next to me, unprotected. She was not there when I started sleeping.
And then her eyes fluttered open.
“Good morning, Kehma. Don’t go alone without permission, and make sure you talk to me before you go.”
“Ah? Are you talking about today’s boat sightseeing? I wonder if I had time for that…”
“Why!? What do you think I made Rokufa for? Seriously…”
Rokuko is sulking …Sorry, but tomorrow I need to revise some of my plans for the dungeon renovation.
More beds might be a good idea.
For the time being, we’re working on fine adjustment for the [Gluttony] trap. Let’s have Ichika to cooperate as promised.
The next one is [Wrath] or maybe [Envy]?
Ah, but I don’t want Rokuko to become gluttonous, also I don’t want her to become an angry or jealous girl. Let’s review that too…
TL note :
Rokuko Angry and Jealous mode, Yandere-Rokuko?
Also… kinda forget about this, Toy’s name is not precisely Nana; it’s actually Naana, or probably Nahna if I tried to push it… should I revise that? I decided on Nana, since well… it’s better on the eyes. And I kinda conflicted now since she uses that name quite often.
Here’s her Katakana: ナーナ Na with prolonged a.
