I Was Forced by the Saintess to Marry the Ugly God - Chapter 10
Volume 1 Chapter 10 ※Kami-sama’s Perspective
‘—Monster! Monster monster monster!!’
‘No! Don’t come near me! Somebody help!!’
…I am not a monster.
When did he start thinking that calling out to them was useless?
‘Incompetent God! Hey! Look here! Come on!!’
‘Will that guy shriek when stones are thrown? Hey, let’s try hitting it!!’
When did he notice that those words wouldn’t reach them?
‘Incompetent God? That thing isn’t a deity. He’s just the Shrine’s “baggage”.’
‘The marquis’s young lady was chosen by the Incompetent God? We could not let our relationship with the marquis’s family sour. That oracle was a “mistake”, got it?’
How much time had passed since the moment he knew the Shrine had lost faith in him?
It was too late by then.
“He” already forgot most of his memories, and he could not even recall what kind of being he was.
His former figure was lost, transforming into an ugly, dirty body.
The only thing he understood was that his current body was shouldering the filth and disasters of mankind.
Perhaps, his purpose as a god was probably just like that.
No power, no attributes unlike the other gods.
His existence was only meant to receive filth.
However, even that purpose was reaching its end.
He accumulated too much filth.
A deity who accumulated too much filth in his body would become a fallen, evil deity, and his existence would change into a being that would bring destruction unto the humans.
The extent of destruction would depend on the former deity’s power; the stronger the power, the greater the destruction.
‘A deity like me won’t amount to anything, though.’
He would probably involve one or two people.
Though feeling sadness over it – he could feel the seeds of happiness sprouting with him.
He could feel that emotion increasing every time the humans look at him frightened, laughed at him and scorned him.
That sincere deity called Adoracion had been trying to save him desperately.
If the saintess – if a person who could relieve him from his defilement came, then he would not fall into becoming an evil god.
‘No matter. It’s meaningless.’
Those who came always fled away screaming in fright.
Else, they would keep their distance while vilifying him, and they even threw stones at him.
He already gave up on any expectation for those humans.
He was only silently waiting for the time he would be engulfed by this impurity.
A dark room that the sun never reached.
A quiet room humans did not visit.
He could only wait for his end within the hollow feeling of ‘loneliness’ –
A girl’s voice resounded, reaching his ears.
It was a bright, honest, a little bit too frank voice.
‘Kami-sama! Were you bullied by the other deities!!??’
It had been so long since he conversed with a human.
It was even longer than that since he laughed.
‘… That’s because Kami-sama, you had an uneasy atmosphere, too…..’
It was the first time he met a human who would worry about him; everyone else ran away the moment they saw his ugly appearance, even throwing rocks at him.
Nobody but her said he had an ‘uneasy atmosphere’.
‘– I’m your Saintess now.’
Her voice was a light shining within that ‘loneliness’.
It was within the gloomy, murky corner of darkness.
A discovery he made when he was on the verge of becoming the evil god.
‘I’m a proxy, though.’
It was a hopeless desire, uncharacteristic for a deity.
‘Temporary? Proxy? ……….You will be gone eventually?’
––––––––– I don’t want to let go..of you.
T/L Thoughts: Another heart-wrenching chap from our dear ML :0 ooohh, excited for him to grasp that happiness!
