Diesel was cruising through the streets, taking a break after his latest job. He had just sent yet another random guy into the next world. Asking Kami-sama where he ended up, he was given an answer in his usual tone that suggested that he had been asked this a million times before.
"The typical world of swords and magic." Kami-sama yawned. "There's just too many undeveloped worlds out there. Not enough of them mature far enough before something explodes and takes it out."
Occasionally, it felt like Kami-sama nonchalantly let out a bomb that made Diesel wonder about how serious the Gods were about protecting the different worlds. He made it sound like letting a world go into ruin was just a momentary 'oopsie' that they could just erase and start all over again.
"Hey, you humans reap what you sow. Can't do much for accidents that wipe yourselves out. We're in charge of balancing when there's a strange being that is vastly overpowered or disrupts the karma balance." Kami-sama was filing his nails as he spoke.
"Beings that we trucked over to them, most likely," Diesel said, wondering if all the trouble each world encountered would lessen if the movement of people between worlds halted.
"That can't be helped. Unpredictable powers aside, moving people around is the natural thing that we Gods do. Can't help it if we need a bit of spice after trillions of years of doing it."
Eh? So now, the worlds were just a big chessboard for amusement? Diesel gave up. His head couldn't take the magnitude of the silliness in all of this. It was better for him to just focus on gaining karma.
However, his talk with Kami-sama had bummed him out somewhat. For that reason, he decided to take a little extra stroll around the place he was sent to. It was always nice to go sightseeing after a service to shake off the lingering feelings that he might've had for the target.
It was still not something pleasant for him to do, so finding other interesting things about the locations he visited seemed to drive those bad thoughts away.
Over time, he discovered that it wasn't just locations of his own world that he could visit, but that services could happen in any world among the countless ones around. It was just simpler for Kami-sama to give familiar-looking locations to start off with, letting Diesel ease into the job before going to some obscure environments.
A truck could show up in any world, no matter what condition it was in. However, one required a bit more tact to succeed in some worlds without shocking the locals of their presence. It was utterly strange for a truck to show up in a low-technology world, but arrangements could be made to form a backstory or disguise.
Becoming the silly form of a legendary summon for a hero was something that had him almost cracking up during the job, but he managed to barely hold it in. He had to be prepared for the strangest of situations from now on.
However, as Diesel stopped somewhere to take a break, he noticed a group of oddly dressed people looking creepily his way. He was not used to people noticing him. He was just a plain old truck normally.
Yet, one of them pointed right in his direction and charged forward.
Diesel froze, not knowing what to do. The only other time that a person had noticed his sentience was a cultivator that had lost his powers. It couldn't be that they were more cultivators in this world?!
"Kami-sama! Can you get a portal ready for me? I want to go back, like right now!"
Fun time was over. He couldn't let those people come up to him and find out that he was a living truck!
"There it is! The driver-less Isekai Truck!"
The group of people were getting closer. Yet, there was no answer from Kami-sama.
"Kami-sama! Any time now!" Diesel felt cold perspiration drip down his windshield.
Still, there came no answer from the other end.
By this time, Diesel was in a panic. And when he panicked, he froze like… an idle truck. He watched as the group of people made it right up to him and suddenly bowed down.
"Oh great, Truck-sama! Please send us unworthy servants to the other world of our dreams! We all humbly request to be chosen as heroes who can be more than what our current lives has cursed us with."
"I wish for the OP life!"
"A harem would be nice too, but I'll settle for 2 or 3 girls."
"At least, let me bring my smartphone."
"Catgirls…wouldn't mind bunny girls either."
"I want a naturally 'big sword', if you know what I mean…"
Diesel tried to wrap the statements being thrown at him all at once while remaining silent. He couldn't show them any sign that he was indeed a magical truck that could send them to another world.
'How the hell did they find out about me anyways?! And some of those requests…did they think getting sent to another world was an instant ticket to Paradise?!'
In either case, these were delusional people that Diesel had to quickly get away from. Without Kami-sama's permission, he couldn't haphazardly run over random people, even if they wanted it for themselves.
'Maybe if I hold very still, they'll get bored and leave.'
"Hey Diesel? I'm having a bit of trouble over here. You finished trucking the other guy as requested, so I'll warp you back to the Divine Realm later."
The group of people lifted their heads up at that moment, as if they had heard Kami-sama radio him.
"IT'S TRUE! TRUCK-SAMA OF THE DIVINE REALM! PLEASE SEND US AWAY!"
All at once, they leapt to their feet and tried to swarm Diesel.
Realizing that it was a lost cause, Diesel immediately floored it in reverse and spun around before gunning it down the road.
"AFTER IT!" He heard them cry from behind him.
Diesel was in a pinch. Somehow, those guys were able to detect the words from the Divine Realm, and Kami-sama had decided to ditch him for the moment. All he could do was drive away until he had the time to be warped back!
However, no matter how far it seemed like he drove, or how he changed the body of his truck, that group of strange people seemed to find him. How were they able to tell where he was?!
"Fufufu, do you think you can escape my otherworldly detection capabilities?"
Diesel looked up at a bridge where one of the guys was looking down at him. Strangely, he had an eyepatch on, which he was in the process of removing. It revealed an eye that was of a different color than the other.
"This magic eye of mine sees all! You cannot escape!"
Irked by this statement, Diesel sped away, only to nearly run into another one of them, who ran into the street waving his smartphone. At the last moment, Diesel uses his wind powers to blow him out of the path as he swerved away.
"You can't get away! My all-powerful smartphone will track you down!"
As Diesel continued to duck and weave through the streets, occasionally one of the members of that group would jump into his path.
"I wanna be the one! The 'Harem King'!" A guy with a moeblob shirt said as he dove forward.
"Please, go easy on my important part!" Another closed his eyes as he ran forward while covering his crotch with both hands.
"I want to reincarnate and start my life all over again with a hot mama!"
"Maids! Bikini armor! Hot springs scenes! I want all the fanservice!"
Diesel was seriously getting fed up with all of them. The urge to truck was rising!
"Okay, I'm ready to send you back. Just let me pinpoint your location," Kami-sama suddenly interrupted.
Moments later, a portal formed in front of him, which he passed through right away. The scenery abruptly changed as he was dumped back into the endless white surroundings near Kami-sama's garage. There, Kami-sama was waiting for him.
"Where were you?! I was getting chased by loonies who wanted to be trucked!" Diesel yelled impatiently with annoyance.
"Sorry, things were a bit out of my control." Kami-sama hung his head.
While Diesel was running around, Kami-sama had a little issue with some wild geese that Moon Goddess Yue had asked him to babysit. Though he had heard Diesel calling for him, one of the geese had stolen his phone, which kept him from being able to help Diesel.
After chasing the goose around for a while, he finally got his phone back and located Diesel before dropping a portal at his location.
Diesel wanted to run over some geese now, but he settled with banging his front into a wall.
"How did they figure me out and keep finding me anyways?"
Kami-sama walked over and plucked something from Diesel's grill.
"Oh, a tracking device. And as to why they could hear us… It's probably because they had a heartfelt desire to communicate with us, leading to a connection with those in the Divine Realm. That's how requests happen after all."
"Then, should I have trucked them?"
"You could've. But they'd likely end up in some random world where they'd soon be devoured by some monster or enslaved by random people. You can't just get sent away without preparation. Us Gods have a lot of setup to ensure that targets land as the right person in the right place. Otherwise, you might even end up as a mere stick or a rock instead. Who knows what could've happened?"
"If I had known that, I would've just run them over." Diesel sighed with regret.
Kami-sama grinned. "They might've even ended up with a funny story to tell."
