“Fuaa〜aah…”

I crawled out of my futon, Sui rolling out beside me.

For some reason, Sui likes sleeping with me. [1] I guess she likes the cosiness? Once I got under covers, she bounced forward and snuggled down beside me.

I rubbed my eyes and looked towards Fer, who was… already awake?

Also, there’s something a little different about him…

“Oi, are you alright? Do you have a stomachache?”

“What are you talking about? It’s impossible for me to get sick in the first place and- bah, enough about that. I have something important to tell you,”

Fer sounded unusually serious, so I automatically folded my legs in a seiza position and looked alert.

“Last night, I received an oracle from the Wind Goddess, Ninril-sama,”

“Eh? Wind goddess? The same wind goddess who granted you God’s Blessing?” [5]

[4] “As a devout follower of Ninril-sama, I will occasionally receive oracles through dreams,” he looked very solemn. “Last night, Ninril-sama spoke to me about master.”

[4] “Eh? Me?”

“The great and generous Ninril-sama has, after much consideration, decided to grant master a blessing.”

[6] “Oooohhh!!!”

“In return, master must pray each week and give offerings in the form of other world desserts for Ninril-sama,”

[4] “…eh? Other world… desserts?”

[6] Fer nodded solemnly, “This is Ninril-sama’s mercy upon a weakling. While she cannot grant a full blessing. She could grant a God’s Blessing (small) for you,”

Leaving the ‘weakling’ remark aside, what was all this talk about desserts? [5]

“Although God’s Blessing (small) is not as mighty as mine, it will nullify all abnormal status so long as the blessed person did not suffer instant death or very powerful curses. Moreover, it will augment your magical power as well,”

[4] “Is that so?” I thought about it for a moment. However, there was really nothing much to think about. Having a God’s Blessing, even a (small) one that could nullify abnormal status and augment one’s magic is pretty incredible. [4] To be honest, “I’m pretty happy to receive the blessing, but is it alright for the goddess to just hand blessings around carelessly like that?”

“It is Ninril-sama’s mercy. Receive with gratitude,” Fer snapped.

“Sure, okay, fine,” [5] Really, I’m fine getting a blessing in exchange for some dessert. I looked around, for a moment, “Um, how do I make my offering? There’s no altar or anything…” [5]

“What matters is not the material but the heart. For example, that rock over there could serve as an altar,” Fer pointed at some random rock with a fairly flat top. “You must pray with sincerity and feelings of gratitude towards the great Ninril-sama. If you are sincere, your prayers will reach Ninril-sama.”

“I see, I see,” this is the first time I’m seeing this side of Fer.

Hmm, I guess I could just use a cardboard box for my altar? I have plenty of those after all. [5] I rummaged through my [Item Box], withdrew a cardboard box and set it upside down on the floor. I thumped lightly on the box, hmm, it seems sturdy enough.

“I nearly forgot. Ninril-sama instructs that for the first offering, master must offer Red Bean Bun, Jam Bun, and Cream Bun,”

“… …” wait, don’t tell me the goddess used your dream oracle to make… an order for sweet buns? Did she see us eating those buns and decide she wants some?

Well, women are notoriously weak to sweet things after all…

At my previous workplace, the women in my company always picked at their food and declare themselves full. However, when it’s time for desserts, everyone suddenly said they have an appetite…

She probably saw us eating Dorayaki yesterday and finally couldn’t resist…

Anyway, it doesn’t matter! Let’s see, Red Bean Bun, Cream Bun, Jam Bun, hmm, let’s throw in a canned coffee as well for the goddess. [5]

I placed all the items on the cardboard and… wow, it looked more like a tribute than an offering. [1] Whatever, never mind, let’s just put our hands together and pray.

“O, great Wind Goddess Ninril-sama. Please accept this offering from your humble servant. This humble servant has also included a can of coffee for your enjoyment. Please accept this humble servant’s gratitude for your blessings. Thank you very much for your care, Ninril-sama,”

When I opened my eyes, everything on the cardboard box has disappeared.

Hmm, I guess she has received it?

How should I find out…?

Oh, right, my status.

“Let’s see, let’s see… Status Open,”

I looked at my status, and sure enough, this was added:

 

[Blessings] Wind Goddess Ninril’s Blessing (small)

 

I have received a goddess’ blessing!

Next round I shall offer up a selection of Dorayaki and tea. Thank you, O, Great Ninril-sama!

 

[Gumihou: How wonderful for our weak MC!]
