Wait Huh? Soul bound? What does that mean? As I was trying to understand what was going on, Aya placed both of her hands on her head.

"AAHH!!" She screamed as her face looked like she was in great pain.

What is happening to her? Don't tell me she was cursed from my skill, and now she is dying? No! I shouldn't think like that! I need to help her somehow!But what can I do? I tried approaching her to see if she was hurt anywhere, and if not, to calm her down somehow. But the moment I got close to her, she placed both of her hands on my cheeks and closed her eyes. I couldn't understand what was happening to her. And at that moment... She kissed me… I was so surprised and happy at the same time. This kind of kiss was way different from before. It had a gentle touch that could break anytime If I tried pushing her away. Even though it was so gentle and soft, I couldn't move away from her. It was like she was sucking my energy away.

"Ahh…" She released a cute voice as she separated herself from me. Even her face doesn't look like she was in pain anymore. She had a relaxed expression as if she lifted a huge burden away from her chest.

I didn't even pay attention to the game-like window since I was looking at her face. Her cheeks had become beet red as she was looking at me.

"I'm s-sorry about that... I didn't mean to do such a thing. It's just my body moved on its own, and now I feel better." She covered her mouth using her paw-like fist while averting her eyes away from me.

"…" I can't believe this... How can a girl be so cute? But I'm glad that she feels okay now, and her body isn't in pain anymore.

"I don't know why I did such an embarrassing thing…" She said. But while she was kissing me, I think something popped up. What was that about? I wasn't paying attention to it because of her. Maybe if I had a status game-like window, I could check it anytime.

<Status Window Acquired!>

Huh? Don't tell me...

"Is everything okay?" Aya asked the moment I reacted to that notification.

I nodded at her as a sign saying, "Everything is okay!"

...

Now how do I open my status? I can't say it with my voice right now because I don't want to scare Aya. I also don't have a keyboard where I could open it with. What if I think about opening it?

Yes! It's exactly like a game! I was expecting to have my username in the game I used to play, but I'm glad that it's my actual name. Now, what's with these stats? Except for my INT, all of my other stats are zero! Why is that? Is a ghost that weak?

I don't know the strength balance, but I will ask Aya if she can understand me. And lastly, my skills... I'm sure I have some skills, so why aren't they appearing here? Okay, let's think about showing my skills...

"…"

Skills: <Hollow voice> <Night vision> <Curse> <Hearing> <Possessing> <Soul bound>

──────────

Oh, I can see them now. Hollow voice, Night vision, Curse, Hearing, Possessing, Soul Bound...

Those are all the skills I had acquired. I'm not sure how I got these skills, but I think those are the typical starting skills of a ghost. And I think I can get even more skills somehow. Usually, in a game, I had to kill monsters to get more skills and improve all of the stats. But I'm a ghost! I can't touch anything, and I don't think there are any monsters in Japan. Is my only option to scare away people who come here? I mean, Aya was scared as fuck when she first saw me, and I don't know what caused her to stay calm right now.

But I think It has to do with the fact that my curse skill was activated, leading to me getting a new skill called 'Soul Bound.'

Can I see more details on my skills? I already know what three of my skills are about, but what about the others?

.

──────────

Skills: <Curse>Lv.1

You can inflict pain on your target but you'll feel the same pain as well...

──────────

.

Huh? That's the most useless skill I have ever seen in my whole life as a gamer. Why would I want to feel the pain while using this skill?

.

──────────

Skills: <Possessing>Lv.1

You can possess any being with lower resistance.

──────────

.

This seems a bit more useful than the other skill, but I still don't feel comfortable possessing other humans.

.

──────────

Skills: <Soul Bound>Lv.1

You can have a close connection to someone who you really care about. If you use this skill on another being, your souls will be together forever!
