276. Ghost and Exorcist
The doll, Françoise, opened its mouth just like when it ate fireflies. It began to inhale with great momentum.
『”Huh!? Wait! What!?”』
The ghost screamed, not knowing what was going on, as her long hair fluttered in Françoise’s suction.
…… What is it, she looks, very pathetic?
“Fufu… it’s okay. You’re not going to Nirvana… you’re going to nourish this cute Francoise. So yeah, you can rest assured.”
Josephine told the confused ghost which was outraging.
I mean, at least let her go to Nirvana, can’t you? Or at least, put her inside some object? If it’s a manga or movie, erasing a crying ghost without asking questions, it’s probably the a role that the hero hates, right?
『”Stop, really! Help me! I haven’t done anything wrong!”』
“? I don’t care about that… be quiet and be a good nutrition for Francoise.”
Hmm, well, you should care a little bit at the very least, right? Also, if you haven’t done anything wrong, why’re you not in Nirvana already?
The ghost clung to the bench, shouting that she didn’t like it, and managed to stay alive..? die…? Whatever, but that’s only a matter of time.
…… Too bad.
Suddenly, both Shino-san and Mishima-san started to make a move. But, they didn’t seem to know what to do with the situation, and stooped while looking at me.
“Kohaku-kun, what should we do? Isn’t better to stop Josephine?”
“It seems that there was something wrong and she couldn’t enter the Nirvana, so…”
They asked me for an opinion.
“Sure… I don’t think the ghost didn’t do anything wrong as what she claimed, also, do we have the right to do something in front of an expert?”
“That’s right. We see it like that, but perhaps, it may look like a demon to Josephine…”
“That may very well be right……”
Seeing the screaming ghost, the two seemingly complicated faces turned even more complicated. However, Josephine would be doing the same to the ghost with or without knowing whether the ghost had done bad things or not. After all, she said earlier that it didn’t matter.
However, it was really extremely pitiful that a ghost that didn’t look like a demon would end as a doll’s nutrients. I didn’t really want to get involved, but I decided to talk to Josephine.
“Fufufu… You’re still struggling huh… well, it’s useless.”
“Fufufu, I wonder how many minu… No, how many seconds left do you have?”
This girl… you really plan to keep ignoring me huh?
I forcibly turned Josephine’s face over here because she didn’t have a good ear. I hadn’t seen her face clearly since it was covered by her long hair, but now that I looked at it, Josephine had a beautiful face like no other in the world. But!
Yeah, But! Her eerie aura negated all of her good points. Some might say, “Gap Moe”, but that wasn’t the case at all, at least I didn’t feel so.
She looked at me for a few seconds, and maybe she finally recognized me, the light returned to her black and muddy eyes. And she dyed her face red.
“Umm… that… I-I’ll give you a memo with my contact later…”
That’s not it.
Well, any person who tried to ask for contact information in this situation was the weird one.
But, how can she come to that conclusion? Does she lack common senses?
『”Noooo! I don’t want to end like thiーs!”』
I heard the ghost’s tragic screams. Yeah, super pitiful.
“Well, I just want to say, isn’t there a more comfortable method? I feel sorry for her.”
“Comfortable? Hmm, I think becoming Françoise’s nutrition is the most comfortable…”
“I mean, some way that will help her go to Nirvana…?”
When I said that, Josephine thought a little and nodded.
“Francoise, stopped eating for now.”
When she said that to Françoise, the doll who had been sucking like a black hole with its mouth, stopped and returned dissatisfied words to Josephine.
『”Josephine. What is it? You have to eat your food properly without leaving any rice. You know it, right?”
“I can’t help it. He begged me to make help her go to Nirvana. As a woman, I have to go along with a man’s selfishness, as much as I can.”
『”Yes, yes. That’s the way.”』
……it’s classified as selfish? Common sense in the occult world seems to be weird, huh…
That said, Josephine stopped the suction and approached the crying ghost.
…… She was crying quietly before, but now she was crying so loud. She must have been scared.
“What’s your regret? Don’t waste my time, so can you spit it out now?”
“I see, you don’t want to say it. Then it can’t be helped. I’m going to scrape your soul little by little. I think, it hurts a lot.”
“If you say it now, don’t worry, I’ll help you go to Nirvana, also I won’t let you disappear until then.”
…… Isn’t it, the same as torture?
