, I could tell that she was well-liked by the people of this village.

“Yes, I can see it when I look at her.”

“If it was only about ability, she could have been the village head.
But she had too much talent as an oni.
She had a talent for divination… or in your language, magic, skills? I don’t know much of the outside world, not as much as Kohaku at least.”

Hakuyo might mean that she had a skill for divination magic.

That’s why Hakuyo became the village chief in her place.

It’s no exaggeration to say that the oni race has no pure magician.

Aside from players who can freely allocate their bonus points when leveling up, for NPCs, the allocation of bonus points is based on chance, and their talent determines the weight of this allocation.

However, the lack of magic skills also means that the other stats, namely physical skills, are higher.

And the demon race is a race that specializes only in physical skills by nature.
That’s why Hakuyo said that Kokuyo had too much talent as a demon.

“On the other hand, as you can see, I had no special talent at all.”

“But you’re still stronger than most people, aren’t you?”

“Maybe so, maybe not.
I’m not sure.
Our status is a whim of god after all.”

Hakuyo laughed mischievously.
She didn’t seem to be concerned about her status value.

“Now, let’s get down to business.
It’s not unusual for Kokuyo to bring people here, but it seems you are different.
I knew from the moment I saw you that you were under a terrible curse.”

“Well, it is do standing out…”

With Hakuyo’s consideration, she started the small talk.

“Does it hurt?”

“No, I’m fine.”

As if he was a doctor making a diagnosis, Hakuyo traced the black crack with her finger.
At the moment she touched it, her finger sizzled and burned.

But Hakuyo herself didn’t seem to mind at all and slid her fingers into the crack ignoring her burning skin.

After touching a few cracks for about a minute, Hakuyo released my body.

“I see.
You’ve committed a taboo.”

“You know about this?”

“In the last two hundred years, I’ve seen two of biggest fools ever to be consumed by a taboo.
The first was a fairy queen consumed by her greed, and the second was a murderous oni consumed by jealousy.”

A fairy queen and a murderous oni.
Greed and jealousy.
Greed and jealousy are names of deadly sins, along with the Rage I was almost swallowed by.

“The two never returned from the curse until the moment they were defeated.
In the end, their whole body was dyed with this darkness, and all that was left was only something that resembled a body.
…Sukuna, you almost didn’t make it in time.”

“Yes, Kohaku… no, everyone stopped me.”

The only one who fought me directly was Kohaku.
But Melty and the other players worked together to prevent any damage from occurring.

What would have happened if I had lashed out in a fury in the middle of the town? Even if it only lasted for five minutes, I could never imagine it.

But one thing I could say with certainty, thanks to the last remaining second of that moment that I’m able to enjoy WLO again.

“The deep darkness that is eating away at your body contains a lot of the negative power of the Kishin.
I can think of a way to purify it, but it’s not possible right now.”

Maybe something was missing, either material, a person or perhaps…

“…the time is not right?”

In response to my question, Hakuyo nodded silently.

“In the north of this village, straight into the depths of the Lost Forest, there is open land with a large tree.
When the moon’s power is at its peak in the night of the full moon, a certain monster appears there.”

“A certain monster…”

A monster that appears only on the night of the full moon.
It sounds really exciting.
It must be a special monster if its time and zone where it would appear is specified.

As my heart was racing with the gamer’s spirit, I was greeted with words far beyond my imagination.

“Its name was [Nocturne, the Moon Wolf of Beyond].
Sukuna, do you dare to challenge the moon incarnate?”

The seriousness in Hakuyo’s eyes sent shivers down my spine.

[Nocturne, the Moon Wolf of Beyond] it has a name, in other words, a named boss monster.

A nostalgic memory comes back to me.
It is the memory of the hot and fiery battle that fascinated me when I first came to this world.

Our battle is still pushing my back until this day.

Feeling the excitement of warrior welling up from inside, a tremble and smile surfaced so naturally, that surprised even me.
