Collecting The Male Leads' First Nights - Chapter 20
‘It said that when my HP is 120 or higher, I can enter the secret shop…’
They were sitting on the beach to take a breather after attacking Coastal Cave 9, eating their rice balls deliciously, when Sevis said something unexpected.
“Miss Sylvia, you should rest tomorrow.”
“Hm? What are you talking about? I don’t want to take a day off. I need to save this world as soon as possible.”
Sylvia shook her head firmly at Sevis’ words. Seeing that, Sevis smiled awkwardly.
“Hm… That’s good, but there are no dungeons left on the shore. It will take some time to find new dungeons. So, you should rest tomor…”
“No! I don’t want to rest!”
Sevis was amazed by his master’s immense diligence. The sight of her screaming while tearing her hair was touching.
‘Miss Sylvia, you really are a great person… I think you can take a day off.’
While staying with Sylvia, Sevis liked her more and more. Her worry that he would be cold every time they went to sleep, her attentiveness to help him with doing the dishes since he cooked for her, and her diligence in moving forward without taking a day off… Although he had some misunderstandings, there was no way for him to know the truth.
Sevis’ heart naturally pounded at his master’s desperation to save the world.
‘I’m serving a great person like this.’
He put his hand on his heart, which was throbbing with his deep emotions, and silently closed his eyes. While Sylvia was in despair, his body grew at the sound of his heartbeat, but Sevis was focusing on his emotions and did not notice it.
“I really can’t!”
While Sevis was moved, Sylvia banged on the floor and screamed, and then turned to him and begged.
“Please… I really don’t want to rest. If there are no dungeons, is there anything else to do? I’m only going to the temple four days a week.”
Sevis, who was still deeply moved and kept his hand on his chest, opened his eyes at her words and fell into thought.
“Hm, things to do… Ah! I remembered a good way.”
When Sevis said that there was a good way, the two of them quickly headed home. They walked with quick steps and reached the cabin in an instant. As soon as Sevis took Sylvia home, he asked her to wait for a while and went out to the village with his hat on.
Sylvia waited for Sevis, biting her nails in anxiety that she would not be able to work tomorrow and had to rest.
‘Resting one more time will increase my karma by 100 points. And what’s 100? This crazy game might give me 200 points as additional punishment. I really don’t want to go to hell.’
After she anxiously walked around the room for a while, with her hands behind her back, Sevis came back with a bunch of papers in his hands.
“Miss Sylvia! Let’s read this together.”
“What is that?”
“The Elishers Empire Daily! Wouldn’t it be possible to find a part-time job for tomorrow if we looked at the job advertisements here?”
On the eleventh day of possessing the game, she finally found out the name of the empire.
The Elishers Empire.
The stack of papers was a newspaper filled with advertisements, like a real-world flea market. Sitting on the carpet on the floor, the two read the newspaper attentively while holding pens.
“Bodyguard part-time… jewelry shop salesman, restaurant serving… I can’t do these things right now. I need to find a part-time job for only one day. And I have to be able to do it right away tomorrow.”
“That’s right, I don’t see any daily part-time.”
Sylvia’s eyes widened when she came upon one advertisement while rummaging through the newspaper.
“Huh?! Shrimp catching boat. 1000 gold, no questions asked? Wow, that’s awesome. I want to try this after I quit the temple part-time. I should draw a line on it.”
Sylvia got excited and drew a line on the advertisement with her pen. Sevis, who was watching her from the side, touched his chin and gave her a worried look.
“A shrimp catching boat. There’s something a bit ominous.”
“What’s the point of nitpicking when it pays a lot of money? Maybe I can get a few prawns for free if I do well.”
“Hm… I don’t think you should do it.”
“Hey, it’s fine.”
Despite Sevis’ dissuasion, Sylvia circled the advertisement for ‘Shrimp Catching Boat’. As if that wasn’t enough, she cut it out with a pair of scissors and carefully put it inside the dresser.
Seeing that, Sevis sighed for a moment, but soon opened the newspaper again. Sylvia also read the newspaper again, trying to find a part-time job for tomorrow. At that time, Sevis, who had searched the newspaper back and forth, pointed at an advertisement with a glow on his face.
“A part-time job for attaching dolls’ eyeballs, and you can do it right away on the very day. How about this?”
“Hm… Ten dolls for 1 gold… Then 100 dolls is 10 gold… 1000 dolls a day is 100 gold…”
Since attaching the doll’s eyeballs was a domestic handicraft, it felt like working from home and wasn’t bad; but Sylvia, who had already tasted the dungeon’s money, wasn’t very willing to do it. At that moment, a perfect part-time job caught her eye.
“A part-time doing sales promotion for jade floors, smooth eloquence needed. Possible to do on the very day. 1000 gold for two hours? 1000 gold? Amazing. Oh, this is good.”
“1000 gold for two hours? For a simple sales promotion part-time? It’s suspicious.”
As Sevis frowned and became suspicious, Sylvia lifted her finger and denied it.
“No, Sevis. It’s summer now. In summer, events are sometimes held to sell carry-over products that are needed in winter at a low price. It must be because the business is going well, and they need manpower. Well, if it comes to it, I can use the Head Smasher and run away… Anyway, I must do this. And tell them I’ll do the eyeball attaching too. It will be perfect to attach dolls’ eyeballs after doing this part-time job.”
Sylvia, who had increased her speaking skills a lot, was confident to speak as if she was possessed inside the game.
Seeing Sylvia’s confident face, Sevis worriedly but inevitably sent a letter through a carrier pigeon, saying that she would do the part-time job tomorrow.
It had become dinner time while they were looking for a daily part-time job, so Sevis hummed happily and went to the kitchen to make food. Looking at his back, Sylvia tilted her head.
‘Was Sevis always that tall?’
For some reason, Sevis seemed to have grown taller than the first time she met him.
Sylvia went to the kitchen and called Sevis, who was chopping vegetables.
“Sevis, come here for a moment.”
“Just a moment, I’m curious about something.”
As Sevis wiped his hands and approached her, she suddenly stood in front of him. As soon as the red eyes flinched and trembled, Sylvia casually turned Sevis around and their backs touched. To measure his height.
‘He is definitely taller than before.’
They were of similar height at first, but he had grown as much as the size of one fingernail.
As Sylvia stroked his black hair with their backs touching, Sevis blushed slightly and spoke in a trembling voice, like a goat.
“Ah, you’re trying to measure my h-height… I was wondering…”
“Sevis, you grew a little. Don’t you think you’re suddenly becoming an adult?”
“Well, my clan… It’s complicated to explain, but we grow at once during the awakening ritual. I’ve never seen anyone become an adult naturally, so I’m not sure. Hm, in any case, I must be growing, right?”
At Sevis’ words, Sylvia turned her body around and sighed.
“Sevis, it would be nice if you became an adult soon…”
Sevis shook his head at Sylvia’s gaze, which became indistinct as if she were looking far away with her hands behind her back.
“Master, you don’t have to worry about me. Even if I am not an adult, I am helping my Master vigorously like this! And when I become an adult, my living expenses will also increase. The amount of food I eat will increase…”
“No! I really hope you become an adult…”
“Think only about yourself, Sevis. Be sure… to become an adult…”
Once again moved by Sylvia’s heartfelt words, Sevis looked at her.
‘You have to become an adult… Ugh. Never mind. I’m the only pervert, once again…’
As she became closer to Sevis, Sylvia’s heart was shaken by the hope that he would become an adult and be able to do things. As she watched him every day, she felt like he was a human being and not a game character, so she felt like she had become a pervert for only thinking about targeting him.
Sylvia hit her forehead to clear up her complicated mind.
‘However, if there is a chance, I must target anyone. Since this is to avoid going to hell. And to save this world… It’s not because I’m a pervert.’
Sevis looked at his master, who was seriously thinking while hitting her forehead. Maybe the fact that he had grown taller had something to do with Sylvia. When their backs touched, his heart beat violently without him realizing it.
‘I feel like I’m reaching adulthood sooner than I expected.’
Quietly looking down at his palms, Sevis got dispirited again. He recalled the lemon-blonde-haired priest who had taken Sylvia home.
Was he called Noel? He wouldn’t be close to a woman because he was a priest, but for some reason, he didn’t have a good feeling. When he saw Sylvia and Noel standing together, his heart somehow sank with a thump.
Although she and himself were only master and butler and had no relationship, after Sylvia came inside, he unconsciously gave her excessive advice to be careful.
Seeing them standing next to each other, Sylvia with her brown hair, and Noel with his lemon blonde hair, they looked as good as a picture.
‘How will Miss Sylvia and I look in other people’s eyes when we stand next to each other?’
