Ah, I want money…

“Huu… my life plan was……”
I was curled myself up in the back alley, trembling, holding my head.
My clothes soaking wet, my stomach empty. I want to eat, I want to sleep on warm bed, but I don’t have money to stay at inn. To let 14 years old girl drifted alone in the street, this world is harsh.
I can’t take guild quest just by myself, I wanted join another party but everyone turned their face away when they now my job is necromancer. Although necromancy village is isolated from the rest of the world, public prejudice against necromancer was terrible after all.
That’s why it was right to not go out from the village… but it can’t be helped! That hero said something like ‘This is the highest mission, to save the world’ with glittering eyes… of course I believed it! It’s hard to believe that they were just immoral bastards from their appearance.
With that reason I left the village. There might be no future for me in the village, but if I save the world, I can live with pension after that, or with achievements I got with the hero’s party, I can become noble in a country somewhere. That was my life plan.
However, the outcome was utterly crushed.
I can’t return to the village, I don’t know any method to live alone in the world, it’s the end. Game over.
Curse you brave! I will become dragon in the next life and I will kill you! Even having such thought wouldn’t help me. If I reincarnated as water flea by some possibilities, then it’s really over. My body getting colder as the rain getting heavier.
“… I absolutely don’t want to die like this!”
My stiff lips murmured.
I’m going to make revenge to the hero. And then have glorious life. I won’t be satisfied unless I got everything I want. I can’t die and left things this way, I’ll be revengeful ghost if I do so.
So I decided. There was prohibited technique in the village which was called the most forbidden of necromancy magic, technique to start over everything. The name was, Resurrection Technique (Save & Load). The burden to the soul was very huge so it can only used once, it was super dangerous technique since there were possibilities that contradiction state will appear and lead the world into destruction, however, I didn’t care such thing.
I took out cylinder container from my hidden pocket. The content was glittering purple colored venom. It was magical tool that prevent the God of Death to collect the soul when the body died. Usually I use it to make monster from revengeful spirit, I never considered to drink it myself.
Ah, the effect was coming, the effect was coming. I immediately dying. With my finger, I draw the pattern for resurrection technique in the air. And then with my last power, I chant the forbidden spell.
“The spiral corridor, reveal your highest general principle authority, go against our whole creation laws, and spin new fate! Eri Bradoma Delcrous!!”
And I was died while vomiting purple liquid.
When I opened my eyes, I was lying on the bed. Immediately I jumped to my bag and checked my diary.
Alright, there was no problem. This was an inn located in Adolmud town. As I aimed, I blow my soul to my brain two years in the past. Well, my body already dead at two years in the future but if I carefully progressing the route, I can avoid the same fate somehow. At any rate, it was my second playthrough, I won’t make any same mistake now.
From my sleepwear, I changed to my necromancer dress and after quickly gathered my belonging I went out to the hallway. It was troublesome to write so I didn’t left any note behind.
At this time, It’s only few months since I joined the hero’s party, the journey was just started. It was the time when the hero still depend on my overwhelming (overwhelming!) power. They must be can’t understand why I left them.
First, I need some fund. To met game over because I had no money like last time wasn’t funny.
I sneaked to the priestess room and took one fourth of the party’s money. Even though I was the one who did the most things, the money always went to hero’s and warrior’s alcohol or priestess’ cosmetics expense. I almost got nothing. There was nothing wrong to get this much for retirement right?
When I went out from the priestess room, I encounter the priestess who walk from opposite side of the hallway. I was nervous whether she knew that I sneaked into her room or not.
“Ara, Nene you wake up? It’s already sleeping time for children you know?”
The priestess, Sara who seductively murmured was not wearing her priestess clothes. She was wearing transparent underwear with loose shoulder strap. Her cheek were reddened.
You, just return from hero’s room right!? The strange voice I occasionally heard from hero’s room at the middle of the night was ‘that’ sound huh!? I always wondering what was that but, I don’t understand! I was just fourteen years old girl! Ah, I’m twelve right now!
“I don’t care. I mean, I’ll leave the party today.”
Pokan faced priestess.
In there the hero came out from his room. Half naked. At least wear your underwear! That’s sexual harassment you know!
“Somehow, Nene said she is leaving the party.”
“Haah? What the hell are you saying in the middle of the night? I properly give meal right?”
And made me work hard just for that meal though! Moreover, I’m the only one who got cheapest menu, and occasionally I was left behind at inn while you three having feast.
“Well, let’s talk about it for a while. Will you come to my room? If you feel unsatisfied, let’s carefully discuss it together with three of us.”
“Yeah, that’s right… you will understand if we talk about it… for a whole night, right?”
When the hero and priestess getting closer, I made one step back. I don’t really understand but, they didn’t feel want to have discussion! I feel I will lose something that can’t be recovered if I accept their offer. It was way out of the norm. When the hero put his hairy hands on my shoulder, it was very disgusting to the point where I really want to call revengeful ghost army.
But that’s not good. If I kill the hero here, I can’t get my revenge. In the first place, I will only have dim future if I kill the hero here. I need achievements. I need to make achievements first!
So, I need to bear it.
I hit the hero on the face with all my might.
There won’t be any damage even with all my physical power, but may be because he was shocked that his obedient pet suddenly became rebellious, he fell with a nosebleed.
“You hit me!? Disgusting necromancer that can’t open her crotch like you disobey this great hero? And why you get angry!? Did you realize I take some of your underwear!? Did you feel bad that I secretly kill your nuisance pet Cerberus!?”
“Hero-sama is thoroughly immoral. But I like that side of yours too, fufufufu.”
“Oi wait Nene! Wait I said! You made mistake!”
Not minding the hero’s angry voice, I dashed out from the inn with my full power.
They were really the worst. I’m glad I left the party before my life become a mess. Well, they already kicked me out and made my life a mess for once. I can’t believe that I admired them in the past. I became miserable because I was stupid, but this time, I’ve restart everything so I won’t make the same mistakes again.
Wiping the tears that about to drop with back of my hand, I stared the night sky while biting my own lip.
“Now then, first, let’s go gather some corpses!”
To realize my ambition.
To revenge on the heroes! To get a brilliant life!
