(AN: Quick warning, some ecchi in this chapter. Not sure if it counts for NSFW, but you have been warned.)
As my rage subsided, I finally took a deep breath and calmed down, throwing myself on the couch and letting the pillows absorb me into its midst. Wielding an equal amount of anger towards myself and the gods, I started to finally get the size of the problem I had gotten myself into. After some time of thinking, I finally turned towards the magician and said.
“By any chance, you wouldn’t be able to undo a god’s curse, would you?” I asked while making a shot in the dark.
“…I see…” Merlin said with a nod and making a pensive pose. “Indeed, it would be possible for me to undo the curse.”
Not in an unexpected manner, we were the center of attention. Well, not that I could blame the onlookers, after all, there were two stunning girls sitting side-by-side on a bench within a highly populated mall.
Under normal circumstances, I’d just have basked in the glory of being the center of attentions without needing to do anything, but not today.
I once fought a legion thousands strong, I also ran for twenty days straight non-stop while being chased by a dragon. I once made a bet with Sophie and spent a full month without sleeping on my bed. Yet none of those times did I ever get as tired as I am right now.
“I… Can feel my soul… Leaving me…” I said tiredly while leaning to the side.
“Hmm, I should probably go check on them.” I said while we waited for Mya to bring back the bill.
“Hmm?” Clarie looked at me confused for a moment while she held the spoon full of ice-creamy goodness to her mouth. “…Oh, you mean guys you dealt with earlier?” She said after swallowing the ice cream and recalling our earlier talk.
“Yeah. I guess they should have learned their lesson by now.” I said pensively.
(AN: Okay, brief disclaimer, but even I think that Inari went a bit overboard in this chapter when I re-read it just now. That said, I feel it’s kind of fitting to show how broken and powerful Inari is, as well as how her sense of what’s right and wrong, and what can be called going overboard can be a bit distorted thanks to her years in the other world. That said, next chapter is back to more funny shenanigans.)
Well, I don’t know how to say this but… It seems that I started creating my own little country inside the arcade, and I’m pretty sure that it wasn’t because of the charm because I kept it under tight leashes.
While sitting on the dislodge car game seat that had been put on the main floor, I extended my hand outwards and soon the prime ministe- ermm, no. The manager, Donovan, gave me the small bottle of water, which I gladly took upon and drank in small dosages, moistening my dry throat.
“Muu… I see. I can kind of understand now.” Clarie said annoyed. “Still, you could have tolds us about you earlier, you know? I mean, i don’t know if i would have helped you, but…”
“Sorry…” I said a bit depressed.
“Also, did you really have to release your full pressure when we met? That was kinda mean. You have any idea how scary you are when you are using it?” She asked me while tightening her grip around my neck annoyed for a moment.
“Who are you and what do you want with us?” I heard my father’s voice as he skidded to a halt before my mother.
Father was a quite unique figure. He was scrawny, like, really thin to the point that he looks a bit sick, the fact that he already is pretty pale doesn’t exactly help him either, as the long black hair made quite the contrast.
Feeling a tinge of nostalgia as I saw him wearing his usual social clothes that he wore when working, I couldn’t help but feel that, as usual, seeing the scrawny looking father of mine holding such a large and dangerous looking knife didn’t exactly match what people would think of him.
Hmm, actually, I don’t think I know that one. Is it new to the collection?
I felt an odd sensation as the space distorted around me, but i still didn’t stop my unending assault against the very fabric of reality before me. Grabbing and twisting it until it would bend to my will, i quickly opened a rip that was just big enough for my small body to pass by. Quickly changing back to my feral form, i jumped through the space before it twisted itself back into shape, hiding the tear that threatened to destroy the very existence of this world.
Well, that is what would happen if i made a mistake, but after a few times doing that, you kind of get the hang of bending the space-time continuum.

I woke up, raising my eyes towards the sky confused as the scene of a forest surrounded me. Confused, i tried to find out what was happening around here.
Feeling a pain in my head, i lowered my gaze in pain and away from the sun while trying to understand what was happening, not helping but noticing that i was strangely close to the ground, i tried remembering what had happened, seeing how my memory had gone fuzzy on the recent events.
