I Was Forced by the Saintess to Marry the Ugly God - Vol 3 - Chapter 42
Volume 3 Chapter 42
It didn’t hurt.
I didn’t fall.
The tray was still in my hands, and it didn’t fall, either.
I was sure I slipped, but instead of falling to the ground — I was still pitching forward, but somebody’s arm supported me now.
“…Really, you’re such a clumsy girl.”
A low voice whispered in my ear, the tone carrying hints of a wry smile.
The person put some strength on the arm that was hugging me so that my back fell onto a body.
That person was bigger than me, and the body temperature was slightly lower — but no mistake, it was a human’s body.
“I really can’t take my eyes off you, Eleanor.”
That person sounded a bit exasperated, but his voice was very kind and gentle.
It was low, but clear to the point that it was a bit cold — I was familiar with this voice.
I heard his calm reply, but at that same instant, the arm supporting me vanished.
Even the body that was touching my back was also gone.
I was on my own, standing on my own feet while still gripping the tray.
“What might it be, Eleanor-san?”
I whirled around naturally, but it was just the usual round Kami-sama standing there, jiggling as he replied to me.
His glossy body obviously didn’t have an arm, nor did it resemble a human’s.
He was short, only reaching my waist.
Kami-sama was tilting his head, apparently bewildered, but I ignored him and placed the tray on the floor.
I didn’t reply, so Kami-sama craned his neck — it was a gesture that he frequently made.
I wordlessly stared at his figure.
“…Ahm, what happened?”
Poke poke poke.
“Ah, ah, what are you doing!?”
Kami-sama let out a small cry when I wordlessly poked him.
Even his appearance was still the usual.
It felt as if everything had just been a dream.
‘… But it’s not a dream.’
I could still remember that sensation.
The feeling of the arm and huge body that supported me still lingered.
Besides, it wasn’t the first time. When the Filth attacked us — no, it was probably even way before that; that arm saved me when I first touch the filth.
The words unconsciously spilled out of my mouth as I stared at Kami-sama trying to wriggle away and put some distance between us..
“Could it be that you’re a super handsome guy in reality?”
“Eh….N-no, I don’t think that’s true.”
My rude query sent Kami-sama jiggling in anxiety.
He looked so apologetic, so I heaved a sigh.
I wasn’t sure if I felt disappointed or not. I didn’t really understand this feeling myself.
If the filth was purified and his true appearance was restored — if he was an Adonis then how great would that be. Of course I’d be happier if that was the case.
But then, I also thought that it’s fine even if he didn’t change, or if he turned into something uglier.
‘That’s because Kami-sama is still Kami-sama.’
Even if he didn’t turn into a hunk, and he didn’t even get a human appearance, if it’s Kami-sama, then I —
My thought process stopped before the sentence was completed in my mind.
If it’s Kami-sama then — what?
‘No no no no no!!! What are you even thinking!?’
I slapped my cheeks and forcefully interrupted my thoughts.
The heat after being slapped brought me back to my senses, and I shook my head vigorously.
I didn’t even noticed that the bar had become lower, and I started thinking “what if Kami-sama had a human figure”!
‘There’s no way that’s….!’
True, but I couldn’t even bring myself to say that anymore, much to my confusion.
That’s because… That’s impossible….
He suddenly called out to me, so I unwittingly shrieked in a weird voice.
Kami-sama looked really perplexed as he stared up at me, and he said the following words in his usual carefree voice.
“We must eat the food while it’s hot, isn’t it? You went through pains just to prepare this, but it will become cold soon.”
He didn’t even notice my feelings, still as calm as ever — and it irritated me.
I poked him again and again out of frustration, but Kami-sama just jiggled as usual, as if bitterly smiling at me.
T/N: Eleanor is falling deeper and deeper! XD
