It’s so dark on this floor. Wu Yan walked among this solemn dark floor, it’s so silent he could hear his own footsteps echoing as he moved.
There are a lot of mannequins here in different postures. They looked eerily creepy accompanied by the silence and darkness of this floor. This could be a good setting in a haunted house attraction.
Wu Yan can feel a bit of tension, or maybe it’s just how every supermarket feels like a haunted house after closing hours.
Wu Yan looked at his surroundings.
“Where on earth is that spirit?”
He asked Kotori in a confused tone.
“Kotori, are you sure the spirit is on this floor?”
The development is similar to the original work but the exact building wasn’t mentioned in the original work. Moreover, Wu Yan’s operating differently from the original protagonist, without a chance encounter, it is pretty easy for deviations to occur.
“According to our analysis, Hermit should be in that area, have some patience will ya? Or maybe, someone’s scared?”
Kotori’s verbal jab didn’t go unnoticed. Wu Yan raised an eyebrow.
Looks like commander mode Kotori needs discipline…
Suddenly, a rabbit doll fell from the sky.
“Are you here to bully Yoshino as well?”
The sudden appearance of the doll and voice almost caused Wu Yan to fire lightning bolts at the doll. Luckily, Kotori’s voice made him aware of the situation. It wouldn’t end well if he misfired and hit the target he’s supposed to secure.
He raised his head and looked at the ceiling, sure enough, the spirit he saw on the screen is there. Now, he can see clearly the features of this spirit.
She’s a very pretty young girl that made one think of bisque dolls. Her long curly blue hair and blue eyes made her stand out just as much as the large green raincoat she wore. The coat covered her all the way to her knees, she had a pair of green boots that matched her raincoat. The raincoat also had a tail accessory which had a white furball at the end.
Her large raincoat easily covered her head, if she wanted to, she could pull it down a bit and hide the upper half of her face including her nose. Her blue eyes that reminded one of a clear blue lake could instantly mesmerize anyone.
Her physical age seemed to be rather close with Flandre-chan, she looked petite and her phantasmal look was similar to Flandre-chan. She had a rabbit doll with an eyepatch on her left hand.
She’s not attractive like the other girls Wu Yan is familiar with. But her tender looks didn’t pale in comparison with Flandre-chan, they are both so cute that one simply can’t say no to any of their requests.
Yoshino: Lvl 70
Hermit Yoshino is also known as the spirit of ice and water.
He can’t help but gawk at this girl who looked like she walked out of an anime even after having seen her multiple times on screen before. She’s just too damn cute.
She looked better in reality than she looked in the anime. Of course, the young lady didn’t notice him zoning out for a brief moment.
She stood there on the ceiling against the laws of gravity. Blinking her jewel blue eyes, she pressed her foot against the ceiling and landed gracefully in front of Wu Yan. She raised the rabbit doll in her hand.
She’s Yoshino so the doll is Yoshinon right?
Wu Yan narrowed his eyes at the doll on her hand.
This is no ordinary doll, this doll represented Yoshino’s more outgoing personality. Whenever the doll is on her hand, this more outgoing persona helped Yoshino by interacting with her surroundings, something Yoshino isn’t able to do very well. By the way, Yoshinon considers itself as an individual, not an extension of Yoshino.
To attack Yoshino is something this doll known as Yoshinon won’t allow.
Hence, to get to Yoshino, Wu Yan must first talk to Yoshinon.
He didn’t see Yoshino move her lips at all. A sharp voice accompanied the rapid movements of the doll, it really looked like the doll has a life of its own.
“You’re wearing the same suit of armor the other girls had? I take it you’re not here to bully Yoshino?”
Wu Yan didn’t say anything. Kotori called out to him.
“Shido, wait, let us give you the choices and you choose the best lines that will work!”
Wu Yan can’t stay calm.
Let a bunch of men with marital problems and women who are under vigilance make up his choices?
It would be easier to lower his favorability with Yoshino by throwing her out the window.
The reply he didn’t ask for came through the earpiece.
“Spirit data entered into the database.”
“Commander, we have finished the analysis!”
Wu Yan turned off the earpiece. His veins started bulging near his temple. Wu Yan’s mood is pretty apparent.
He sighed before approaching the spirit and doll.
“Can I talk to her?”
Wu Yan pointed at Yoshino while addressing Yoshinon.
Both Yoshinon and Yoshino flinched in surprise. It’s like this man before them knows the two very well.
“Ahaha, Yoshinon doesn’t understand.”
Yoshinon danced around, it sounded like it’s putting on a façade and hiding something.
He stared at Yoshinon. Bitterly laughing, he continued.
“Are you going to hide this spirit behind you for the rest of your life?”
Yoshinon is stunned. It froze up.
Wu Yan continued in a softer tone.
“You’re the one doing the talking for her all this time right? as her companion all this time, you must be the one who understands it the most, you know just how important you are to her. She won’t be able to do anything without you, at least, that’s what she thinks…”
“Are you telling me you don’t want to see improvement in her behavior? To see the day where she would be able to communicate normally with other people by herself?”
