Chapter 20: The shrine maiden at the boundary will close it.
“Fuwa … I am tired” (Miko)
With a yawn, I rub my shoulder.
Actually, I don’t feel the stiffness of the shoulders, so this is just a fake reaction.
My physical body has already been destroyed, now it is a spiritual body.
The body you are moving now is just a provisional thing to rest your spirit.
The place where I am is also a spiritual world, so everything that I can see is an illusion created by my soul.
The feeling of the body, the softness of the chair I’m sitting on, and the warm green tea are all pseudo, everything that I have conjured to this world.
I drank the fake green tea, gave out a pseudo-sigh, and opened a pseudo magazine.
My work is “Maiden of the Boundary”.
A bridge that connects the worlds.
Among them, I am in charge of “incarnation” system.
Above that … there is also the task of transferring “the soul that does not conform to the world”
Which are mistakes caused by the Gods, to the world where the soul can live correctly.
But if you go crazy, you will be erased by the bosses (gods).
(They have both gods and bosses in original, she changes it as time pass.
At first, she refer to them as gods (bosses), as she works for them for a long time she refers to them as bosses (gods) instead)
… it’s a troublesome task.
The name changed, the existence changed, even the role changed.
Before life. I was just a shrine maiden, I closed my whole life as a bodily gift.
In my world, in my era, there was a custom to stand by a pillar when I asked for rain for our fiefdom.
It was around that time that I was dedicated to god and fulfill my mission.
Hoho… how nostalgic. (Miko) (T.N: She is talking like an old man even though she was a loli, that ‘ho ho’ was original from Japanese raw)
I felt that my life was exhausted but in the next moment, I was in a pure white world.
I was confused for a moment and without knowing the situation, I thought it was a very lonesome part of the divine world.
It was also at that time, that I understood my new role.
It is a spirit world. Even without being spoken, understanding the rules is reached only by it “being imprinted” directly to the soul.
From now on, I immediately understood that I had to handle incarnation.
Since then, I have been engaged in this work for decades, hundreds of years … maybe even thousands of years.
There is no inconvenience though.
If I wish for it, God can fulfill it even if it was something complex, like giving me my appearance from my previous life, otherwise, most things can be obtained if you apply for it through God.
A magazine that is spread before me now is one of them ‘Weekly Boundary’.
It is an information magazine for “only this world” which is one of many.
Of course, if you wanted to, all this information can be transferred telepathically to your mind
But … I like reading books so I will take the trouble to take the time and read every piece of information slowly.
“Huh? A new sweet is available in that world … buy it” (Miko)
Actually, I do not have to pay for it because I can get it if I apply through God, but I feel that this is wrong.
It expresses a brief connection with that World, but there is no other name for that World.
For example, there is a world with the star name “Earth”, but it is not the name of the World.
In fact, there is a Universe on the outside of the stars, and the galaxies are spreading extensively.
The world there is no name displayed for it if one looks at all the information of that one world.
Even the gods who manage it do not call it by name, saying things like “that World is kinda awful, it is awful, it seems better to destroy, is not it?”
Since this is a spiritual world, we can communicate with “that World”, and since we can share our consciousness, we do not need individual names.
That rule also applies to me.
I have a name from my previous life but I have no name at the moment.
There are some shrine maidens at the border in charge of incarnation, including me, but no-one is named.
Speaking of “that child”, I can communicate with everyone by sharing my consciousness.
In the world where civilization has developed, this is similar to “uploading with images”.
Since you can see and acknowledge details at a glance, you do not need to name it each time.
Sounds awesome right? However, considering my previous life, I am somewhat saddened as a person who had a keen faith in the gods.
“Everyone seems to be enjoying a good life” (Miko)
In the latter half of the magazine ‘Weekly Boundary’, there is written a section for the reincarnated.
Of course, it also shows what kinds of things they had gone through or done and if they are alive.
Some contribute to the development of science.
Some started a war that lasts for hundreds of years, to be the King.
Also, some travel out into space, onto a journey of evolution connecting people’s consciousness.
Indeed, everyone has contributed in a big way.
The souls that have been reincarnated have been given some cheat ability as an “apology gift” for the mistakes caused by Gods.
The quality of the skills given depends on the quality of the soul … in most cases, you will gain enough skills or abilities to describe yourself as a “cheat” or “over-powered”.
Of course, they are not all fun. Some do their best to commit extreme violence using the skills they have been given in the name of destroying the Gods and incarnation.
But that has nothing to do with the Gods because the main purpose of Gods is to “watch over the world” including evil.
I begin searching for a particular article of interest by turning over the pages with a blistery flavor.
My interest was in a boy.
In his world, he lived a lethargic life, as if he was a girl that had a boy’s appearance. (TN: nice loli-gramp, that why you change our mc to a loli)
It took quite a while for me to stay in this role, but I never met such a person with such an air of lethargy.
If there were souls that were only lethargic, it would be a huge matter of course, as those whose soul does not conform to the world would have eyes that are almost void of life.
However, he is ‘an observance of what actions is not approved’,
‘despair by the gap between himself and herself’,
or ‘the soul is not satisfied because it cannot be satisfied’.
I thought it was because of such reasons that he was surrounded by such lethargic air.
However, I was wrong.
He is just lazy. From accepting events beyond the common sense of incarnation to just saying that anything is OK and complains that he would like to go to bed early.
I believe he just saying that just for the moment’s sake.
Among the souls that I have help reincarnate, I have given him the best power.
Moreover, depending on the initial ability – growth, it has the potential ability to decide even the end of the world where he will be reincarnated in.
He must be motivated right now.
Now…where is that that guy? My interest is peaked.
Just a few pages, we reach that name.
Kuon Ginji. The existence that I was incarnated.
“Bu fu ~o~” (Miko)
Blew. There was no choice but to blow.
It was terrible as I thought that my immortal body would get into difficulty breathing.
On the page I’m on, the action after the incarnation of Kuon Ginji is noted, and several more photos are stuck.
Exactly it is not a picture but a landscape of the world is cut out and saved, but since the principle or purpose is the same as the picture, the fine things will be good.
“… It is not a system error, this one” (Miko)
He was asleep.
In a decaying bed, buried in the grass in a forest somewhere in a soft bed, in a place like a carriage.
Was sleeping. He was sleeping. There were only photos of sleeping.
The details of the activity, if it raises a big thing forcibly, the extent that he defeated the demon and saved the town.
The scale of what you are doing is too small for the ability you gave.
Far from being small, he did not do anything neatly.
“… I don’t want to know about it anymore” (Miko) (TN: run away from reality ? well, you are in a dream world after all)
It is not me that decided where the reincarnation will be incarnated, but the system that the gods made.
In other words, I have no fault. I did the job perfectly as usual. no doubt.
I stopped thinking and closed the “weekly boundary” softly.
I will erase everything and return to work, both my body and the chair I sat in.
The mistakes of the gods (bosses) are not exhausted, and the reincarnation is exhausted.
I am at the boundary, and I am busy managing incarnations.
So I do not know about that guy. I do not know. I do not know. (TN: you repeat it many time, Loli-gramp)
“So you came, a new incarnate.” (Miko)
Let’s start working.
I am busy. Unlike someone who is just sleeping.
