Oh.. my.. god..Bookmark here

I'm I seeing things correctly?Bookmark here

200 points?Bookmark here

200 FRAKING POINTS?!Bookmark here

Alright. Moving along. I suppose the categories have been renamed. And instead of 4, there are 3. But there can be 6 tasks ongoing at any one time.Bookmark here

That's surprisingly good. I have a feeling the quests from here onwards will provide more points now. Nice~Bookmark here

Hm.. the only thing I find kinda off is that the categories are based on the triangle of love.. or something. Passion, Intimacy and commitment.. I've read about it somewhere..Bookmark here

Hnnngg...Bookmark here

I wonder how Liliath is faring—Bookmark here

I turned my head to look..Bookmark here

She curled up into a ball in her seat—again..Bookmark here

Great..Bookmark here

I know 200 points is a lot but honestly.. it's like a suicidal act. I have no intentions of doing such a thing so I'll have to remove that quest.. and for kissing Liliath... Thinking about how the tasks are given based on category, I do think there would be any other easier quests for the passion category. So I suppose I'll retain the 'kissing Liliath' quests. You never know what might happen—Bookmark here

'You got mail!'Bookmark here

I opened it in place of the paralyzed Liliath.Bookmark here

The fuck did I just see?Bookmark here

I know 200 free points is nice and al' but..Bookmark here

Liliath's route?Bookmark here

Tis is za datin' simulotoe?Bookmark here

WHAT IN THE FUCK.Bookmark here

NO FUCK.. WUT..Bookmark here

I don't even know how I should react to this.Bookmark here

...Bookmark here

I should take this opportunity to delete the mail while I'm at it.. Liliath can't see this. Absolutely not.. I'm not some playboy here about to ruin her life.. or so I think..Bookmark here

Ah seriously? I can't delete the mail? It remains stuck in the log forever? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!Bookmark here

I can only hope Liliath never gets the chance to read this.. perhaps she might not even understand what 'Liliath route' means. THIS ISN'T A REVERSE OTOME ALRIGHT?!Bookmark here

Which basically just means I shouldn't at any point in time roll the gacha.Bookmark here

But I really, really, seriously, obsessively want to pull another gacha though.. I wonder who else I could get..Bookmark here


I nodded to my own inner monologue.Bookmark here

For now.Bookmark here

Special Quest:Bookmark here

Hold a conversation with Liliath about Super Glue. 60PBookmark here

RULES: Liliath cannot find out about the specifics of the task. If found out, the quest will be terminated. Special quests cannot be removed and will be refreshed weekly. Special Quests completed before the week ends will only be refreshed the following week.Bookmark here

A blue-ish panel appeared before me and before I could retort, Liliath spoke.Bookmark here

"A status window?"Bookmark here

"Hm? You can see this?"Bookmark here

"But I can't understand the words..?"Bookmark here

Ah. I see. That's convenient, then I wouldn't need to be afraid of accidentally having Liliath find out. Though it's surprising to see an incorporeal status screen in real life. Gets my isekai-Brian pumping. I wonder if other people can see this too?Bookmark here

The points awarded for the completion of the special quests are also quite generous— if only it wasn't Super Glue.Bookmark here

"Status window open."Bookmark here

Eh? What?Bookmark here

Liliath showed a surprised expression at the appearance of her own status window, also in blue. And also, I can't understand the contents written..Bookmark here

But judging from her reaction..Bookmark here

"N-Noel.. d-did you acquire s-something weird?"Bookmark here

"N-no.."Bookmark here

Is talking about super glue weird? I mean.. my sister could do it so..Bookmark here

Wait. I should take this opportunity to test something.Bookmark here

"Hey Liliath. Let's experiment with this a bit. You can't tell me what quest you got right?"Bookmark here

Liliath shook her head in denial.Bookmark here

I don't know If that's supposed to be a yes or no..Bookmark here

"I want to test how far I expose information before the quest is terminated."Bookmark here

Liliath thought for a moment before speaking, "Good idea."Bookmark here

"Alright. I'll start with this. My quest has something to do with something you bought in the library the other day."Bookmark here

To be honest, I didn't think my mom would be so excited when she found out the item that caught Liliath's eye was a packet of super glue— she bought it right away.Bookmark here

"The gum?"Bookmark here

I check the status window— still not disqualified.Bookmark here

"Super glue."Bookmark here

"Super glue.." Liliath muttered as if trying to memorize it..Bookmark here

"Any guesses?"Bookmark here

"Could it be to utilize Super Glue?"Bookmark here

"Nope, keep going."Bookmark here

"Has it not been considered disqualified?"Bookmark here

"Nope, keep going."Bookmark here

"To smear the gum on my face?" Liliath grimaced.Bookmark here

"Nope, keep going."Bookmark here

"No.. could it.. to do that?" Liliath took distance from me.Bookmark here

"Nope, you're growing colder, keep going," wow, I didn't think Liliath would think that far... or could it be that her quests had something related to 'that'..Bookmark here

Be at peace.. no vulgar thoughts..Bookmark here

"Er.. c-could you just tell?"Bookmark here

"Nope, keep going."Bookmark here

"...."Bookmark here

"...."Bookmark here

"Hints?"Bookmark here

"What we're doing now."Bookmark here

Liliath furrowed her eyebrow. I don't if it was just me but I saw a vein on her forehead for a moment— must be just meBookmark here

"A riddle?"Bookmark here

"Nope, keep going."Bookmark here

"THAT'S IT!!! JUST TELL ME ALREADY DAMN IT!" Liliath appeared in front of me all of a sudden and grabbed me by the collar, pulling me up from my seat.Bookmark here

I merely blinked— no, I was frozen. S-she teleported?Bookmark here

Four horns appeared on her head, eyes burning in crimson as she glared at me.Bookmark here

"C-conversation..."Bookmark here

'Noel's Special Quest Completed.'Bookmark here

Such a mechanical voice rang in my head— or our head. I saw Liliath react.Bookmark here

Wow. I'm surprised playing this guessing game was akin to holding a conversation about Super Glue. That's like free money thank you system.Bookmark here

I stared at her and she stared at me.. my legs are jelly. I'm surprised she had the strength to hold me up with a single arm.. ah, she's a demon queen so go figure..Bookmark here

Ah shit. What am I doing— she's mad right?Bookmark here

Her eyes dilated and she looked at me befuddled.Bookmark here

After which a certain realization hit her and she quickly put me down and retreated a few steps.Bookmark here

"S-sorry!"Bookmark here

"I- I think it was my fault.."Bookmark here

"B-but you did it for the sake of the points so I should have tolerated your actions," Liliath didn't dare to look at me.Bookmark here

Honestly. I was the asshole here. I pretty much repeated 'Nope, keep going,' like a broken record since I thought it was fun.Bookmark here

Well. Though I may have almost met my doom there, I think it was an eye opener— Liliath's true colours.Bookmark here

"It's alright to get mad you know?" I said with a smile. Her scared expression literally blew my fear away. And if anything, it didn't seem like Liliath used bloodlust on me just now— so I didn't pee my pants— fortunately.Bookmark here

"I should've maintained my composure.. Noel, what quest was that?"Bookmark here

"To hold a conversation about Super Glue," I said in a fact of the matter tone.Bookmark here

"..."Bookmark here

"Sorry."Bookmark here

"Noel~"Bookmark here

Ok. Shit.. that's scary. Liliath.. your smile... your smile..Bookmark here
