In a Different World with a Smartphone Chapter 317: The Elves
Proofread by Ruriko
“If you could transfer yourself to the castle, you will get 100 points. It’s a pity. But you have arrived in the right world, so I give you 70 points.”
She is so strict. I have a wry smile and ask her what I concern.
“… By the way, may I go back to my original world by Dimension Transfer?”
“The world where you were is too far away, so it may be difficult for you to go there now. But if you get used to the Dimension Transfer, it’s not impossible. Though it’s not recommended…”
Well, I see. It will be a problem when a dead people appears there. I may make myself invisible and just see how things are going. I want to go there someday, but not now.
Besides, this world is my home now.
“Can I use the Dimension Transfer to move anyone else?” ”
“Yes, you can. However, because the destination maybe a world full of poisoned atmosphere, you’d better not take anyone to a world unknown.”
Indeed. If someone is not able to use the spiritual energy like us, he may die quickly in such a world. … I wonder how Ende deals with it.
In that case, I guess he will first confirm the situation from outside of the world barrier before starting transfer. I haven’t seen him recently. Is he alright? I don’t think he is easy to die.
“When I fought with a subordinate god before, I jumped into the so-called Elves’ World. Is that also a different world?”
“It is a small world attached to each world, to be precise. Like a satellite in your original world. If the main body of the world disappears, the related small worlds will disappear, too.”
I see. The elves will be implicated by destruction of the main body. Ah? Wait a minute.
“Is the elves’ world of this world different from the one of the Reverse World? What will happen to the elves when the two worlds’ main bodies merge together?” ”
“If the two worlds are far away, there will be two different elves’ worlds. There is only one elves’ world, because the two worlds are next to each other. But I don’t know how elves’ world will change when the merging starts. Maybe various disasters will take place; e.g., the sea level will rise, or the land will swell, or abnormal weather will come.”
“… No, no, no. Though you say it lightly, sister, it’s very important, right? You should tell me at the the first place! Why don’t you tell me that early? ”
Hearing this, Sister Hanakoi looks serious and stands still there. After two or three blinks, she puts out her small tongue and cast an amorous glance at me.
“… Yeah ♪”
“Hello, is that Universe God? There is a god who binges on the sweets, averse to work. I’m hoping to change one…”
“Ah ah ah ah!! I did teach you Dimension Transfer! I didn’t goof off! I just happened to forget to tell that!”
Sister Hanakoi begs me when I’m pretending to call the Universe God.
Ah… Did she forget really? It’s too dangerous. If the new elves’ world sinks to the bottom of the sea, how can I face the Universe God then?
“Well, what should I do?”
“Oh …Just to persuade the elves not to be shocked too much? Or rather, ask them to follow your instructions. You are also a subordinate of the Universe God.”
Right. The sand elf I met in Sandra also said so. God’s power is supreme to the elves.
“Well, you are not a formal god, so it may not be easy to make them obey you. But they will.”
“To make the elves follow my instructions… How?” ”
“There are many ways.”
Persuade them to follow your orders, with a peaceful solution. This is love and peace.
② Defeat them.
Let them know who they are. Power is justice. This is search and destruction.
… That’s all.”
“There are only two methods! Not many! The options are not enough!”
Talk or knock! They are not solutions!
“③ Find their weaknesses, and then threaten them…”
“Well, ③ will just make them obey you with reluctance. But I cannot assure that they will do whatever you want. So to speak, you are the new boss of a company. There must be some employees who support you, and some who are against you. If you have time, you’d better talk with them one by one. However, if you don’t have enough time–”
“Then conduct the option ② …”
Search and Destruction?
No, no. In this way, a company will collapse. Thus it will become a bloody company, not just an unethical company. That’s a terrible metaphor!
“There seems to be no other option now. You used a similar method to subdue Kohaku and other Divine Beasts, didn’t you? ”
Well. Hmm, are they the same creatures?
“We will leave alone the elves that are willing to obey you. Just show our power to the rebellious elves, and thus they will admit your leadership. Because most of the elves are simple and honest.”
Is that true? Will I be treated as a villain? Maybe I will be called “Elf Hunter”. Or we will be able to understand each other after a fight, just like the adolescent dramas played in the past? This sounds like fantasy.
“… For now, should I go to the elves’ world to have a talk? ”
“Well, yes. You just need to say ‘I’m appointed to manage this world. There are a lot of work to do, so please be my subordinates.’ They may be divided into two groups with different opinions: a group that supports you, and a group against you. Then destroy those rebellious elves.”
I really have no intention of killing them. Sister Hanakoi just likes to say that, right?
Well, I learn that the elves won’t die. If you leave them alone, they’ll revive soon. So is it unnecessary to go easy on them?
I just want to deal with it as peacefully as possible… In the way of love and peace…
However, in my experiences, things always develop in an unwanted direction.
… Search and Destruction?
