The Tutorial Is Too Hard Chapter 212 part1
When she asked me if I wanted to commit suicide, I was silent for a moment.
After arranging my thoughts, I replied.
“At least, not now.”
The God of Slow laughed.
Although the sound itself caused the space to vibrate, I can feel that she was laughing.[Interesting. Don’t you think you look too miserable and shabby in front of me?]
“That’s true.”[Even so, you still don’t want to die?]
“Must it be now? Doesn’t everyone usually die eventually?”
Laughter came again.[Yes, that’s usually the case. In my presence, most people will go mad or become disgusted with themselves. If neither is true, they will abandon themselves and dedicate their lives to me in awe. Those who claim to be gods are no exception.]
After listening to the God of Slow, I wanted to ask questions, but God didn’t give me the chance to speak and continued.[I still remember when you were anxious to die. How interesting. Motivation is a very important thing if one wants to survive, whether it’s for immortality or the ultimate death. But I’ve never seen a being such as you, regarding your survival motivation so highly. Can moths that burn themselves to become sparks of fire really keep themselves in front of me?] [Human beings need those reasons to survive. Is your life your own or just a means to achieve your goals? Don’t you think it’s strange? Don’t you think the purpose and the means are reversed?]
I don’t know why. I want to answer her immediately.
But I restrained myself and sorted out my thoughts.
This is God’s question.
So even if I couldn’t give a perfect answer, at least I need to answer her discreetly.
I suddenly felt that I have heard those same words before.
Not long ago, but I remember when I heard this sentence.
It wasn’t a question then, but a warning.
‘Don’t confuse ends and means.’
Kiri Kiri had said that.
It was the warning she gave me when she saw me practice the Poison Energy Skill for my growth regardless of danger.
Seeing me like that, Kiri Kiri had advised many times that I was too obsessed with my growth that should’ve been just a means.
I needed to clarify my goal for my growth.
Although Kiri Kiri’s theme is different from that of the God of Slow, when I think about it carefully, they are similar.[Nothing is different. If you don’t want to be brandish as someone else’s sword, you can’t be manipulated by your own sword first. ] [Well, if you know, Then there is no need to answer again because nothing is fixed at the beginning. Our role is to warn you not to trip over yourself. That’s enough. ]
The God of Slow concluded the conversation by reading my thoughts without giving me the chance to answer.
Unconsciously, my taut body relaxed and my tension eased.
Then a message appeared.[Tutorial, the 40th floor of the hell difficulty cleared.] [All abnormal phenomenons and injuries were recovered.] [9000 points for clearance award obtained.] [9000 points for first clearance award obtained.] [There is a God who is optimistic about you. 1000 points obtained.] [The God of Slow is watching you.] [The God of Slow wants to give additional rewards. Will you accept them?]
I was a little alarmed at the sudden news of clearance.
It’s totally unexpected that clearance will be successful at this point.
Although it was whimsical, I responded to the message asking if I would accept the additional award.
Just then, instead of the next message, the God of Slow appears and asks me.[What kind of reward do you want? You have accumulated a lot of contribution points in this stage. I’ll give you what you want within the limit.]
The answer has been clear for the God of Slow’s question.
There is only one thing I want from God.
“I want information.”[Go on.]
The first thing I want to know is all about God.
But I have cleared only one stage and there is no way to get such high-level information.
So I decided to get some information that could be the clue.
“Is this one of your many appearances?”
I asked, pointing to the seemingly endless void.[Correct. Why do you think so?]
“I’ve seen a message where you picked up your pillow and threw it at the God of Adventure before. If your appearance is just the void, you can’t throw a pillow. So I can guess that you may have many different appearances besides the void. “
Space vibrates and makes a sound again.
Slightly different from the laughter I heard before.
The laughter lasted for a while and then suddenly stopped.
After a moment of silence, the God of Slow said.[Forget it.]
She spoke so decisively that I couldn’t find any more fault.
To be exact, I dared not to find fault.
If there are other appearances, then where, what are they, and how do different appearances interact with other gods, there are a lot of things I want to ask.
But the God of Slow forbids me to ask any questions related to this subject.[Ask something else.]
I ask the God of Slow who wished to hear something else.
“Aren’t you reading my thoughts? Can you explain what I want to know within the scope of permission? I’m afraid the scope of your explanation will be narrowed down by my questions.”[No. Anyways, it’s a reward. I can’t explain it to you without asking me. By the way, that one just now also counted as a question. I have deducted the corresponding contribution points, keep that in mind.]
Suddenly I felt that she is somewhat deliberately provocative.
Is it because of the pillow I mentioned just now or something else?[Words that make me feel uncomfortable will also cost your contribution points. Again, I told you to forget that.]
So it is.
Before the contribution points are consumed again, I stop thinking and ask questions I had prepared.
“Are the monsters that appear on Earth the same ones as the origin monsters that appear on the 40th floor?”[Yes. but there are few monsters with the essence. Other monsters may have similar things, but is nothing compared to the essence.]
“Then what God asks the apostles to do is to collect the essence and present it to the temple.”[Yes.]
“Then is the essence of the origin necessary to become a God?”
