Chapter 4:

Reincarnate or Disappear!

I Didn't Even Want to Live, But God Forced Me to Reincarnate!


"What a pitiful creature..."Bookmark here

Upon hearing that voice, I opened my eyes.Bookmark here

Ara? Didn’t I die? I am pretty sure my skull was cracked… or something like that.Bookmark here

It's pitch black.... with a spectre of white in front of me.Bookmark here

Eh? Was the voice.... this thing's?Bookmark here

"Who or what are you? Are you God?"Bookmark here

"... Something like that." it vaguely responded.Bookmark here

Whoa, what a vague response, Is this some kind of scam?Bookmark here

“No, missy, this is not a scam!”Bookmark here

“!!” EH?! It can read my mind?! So it really is God! In that case---Bookmark here

"Don't worry, I won't make any complaint to you regarding my life. I thank you enough for granting my wish to end my life. So can you let me sleep in peace now? Or make me disappear already. Whichever you prefer, I don’t mind."Bookmark here

Inside my mind, suddenly a pop out sound effect just like that of a game appeared.Bookmark here

☆Special Event [Meeting with God] has triggered!Bookmark here

☆Achievement unlocked [The Long Awaited Death]!Bookmark here

Uwaa-- have I spent too much time playing games… it’s scary.Bookmark here

"What? No way I can do that! You have endured such a life and even gave your life in order to save the others. Besides, what killed you was a result of my miscalculation during my experiment with the meteorite… How can I not give you my compensational reward for that?"Bookmark here

Uhm… so… were you so bored you had to play with… A METEORITE?!Bookmark here

That’s taking games to another different level, you know… if I were to say it, it’s totally on God’s level!Bookmark here

And wait, so the thing that actually killed me was a meteorite? That… is pretty cool. Hooray for my anti-mainstream death!Bookmark here

I hurriedly return from my own exasperation. It would be rude to keep God waiting, right?Bookmark here

"Reward?"Bookmark here

"Yeah, so I will let you reincarnate. If you do not reincarnate, you will just vanish like that. Poof! Reincarnate, or disappear! The answer is obvious, right? Ask away anything you want from me. I cannot give you much such as cheat to make yourself way too overpowered, etc, non, non! That is cheating! I have had enough of those reincarnated people with cheats! However I will grant you one power you wish! How does that sound?"Bookmark here

Honestly, is this some kind of a joke? Bookmark here

This is not funny… not the slightest bit!!Bookmark here

Well, I guess I have read stories where the main character reincarnated with some kind of cheat and was able to live to the fullest and happy... or became a legendary person.Bookmark here

In this case, I should ask some kind of cheat to make my life convenient, right?Bookmark here

Anyhow, someone with this kind of situation is expected to wish for something for their next life. In hope that they can live... happier this time.Bookmark here

...Bookmark here

But, no, thanks.Bookmark here

I am not the kind of protagonist in stories like that.Bookmark here

By no means, I have never considered myself a main character of any story. A person like me is suited to just be a boring side character that will easily be forgotten. After all, I hold no interesting value. I am not a likeable person, either.Bookmark here

That’s why, my answer is obvious.Bookmark here

"It sounds more like a punishment to me, so I will pass. Please, just let me rest in peace already," I sighed, and I proceed to lie down on the nothingness.Bookmark here

Fumu, so you can actually lie down here, eh? That is pretty nice. I love this afterworld already.Bookmark here

"Eh?"Bookmark here

I heard a surprised voice.Bookmark here

Bookmark here

Uh, no wonder. If you plan on making someone the main character of the typical reincarnation story, definitely cross me out. God, you should have known better than anyone...Bookmark here


Bookmark here

"Don't you... have any other wish?"Bookmark here

I cannot see any facial expression from the light, yet I get the feeling that God feels a bit dejected. Or is it just my feeling?Bookmark here

Hmm, if this will be the last story of me, then I guess I can ask something, right?Bookmark here

After all, I cannot deny the fact that I am curious of something...Bookmark here

"About my cell donation... how is it going? Are there people who feel glad by it? Have I saved anyone? Was my existence meaningful?" I asked.Bookmark here

"Ho ho... I see, so you are curious about that, eh," I see the spectre of light wavering—no, flickering-- as it laughed.Bookmark here

"Yes. You said I can wish for one thing."Bookmark here

"Ah yeah. Wouldn't it be great if you find it out by yourself?"Bookmark here

"Eh?"Bookmark here

How in the world would it be possible to do so?Bookmark here

Is it going to show me the fate of my cell donations? Whoa, this light is God, after all!Bookmark here

Let me guess : it’s gonna be shown like how cinemas show movies, right?Bookmark here

Viva God!Bookmark here

"Yosh, it's been decided! Ahoy, aboard to the reincarnation train!"Bookmark here

...wait, what?Bookmark here

Excuse me, God… Hello? Earth to God?Bookmark here

“Go and enjoy life!” said God, making use of the time I spent being dumbfounded by the development.Bookmark here

WHAAAAAT?! NO, THIS IS NOT WHAT I WANT!Bookmark here

WHO. EVER. SAID. THAT. I. WANT. TO. BE. REINCARNATED?!Bookmark here

Someone, please give God a common sense!Bookmark here

I am about to voice out my objection with a loud voice—and I want to try to point my hand at the light—just because... I want to try the pose of my favorite character from a certain video game...Bookmark here

But apparently, I have no chance to do so.Bookmark here

The darkness quickly melts away as I am being pulled by force—an unknown force—towards a source of light—the world, I presume?Bookmark here

“YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!”Bookmark here

--is the last sentence I managed to shout with my last energy.Bookmark here

"Maan, what a weird girl. It isn't supposed to be like this based on the novels I have read. Upon the choice to reincarnate or to remain death, anyone would definitely choose reincarnation as second try to life… And as for the previous ones, they went along with the scenario… that girl is indeed an anomaly... maa, I guess I should grant that girl a little cheat, so hey, girl, you gotta thank me later on!"Bookmark here
