Chapter 4 – Rite of Awakening
Eventually, a few of these strange creatures found their way into my mouth every day since then.
And as I was sleeping unprotected, I had to fight them in my stomach.
“Ah (Hmm, are you at this level? I don’t think you can beat me with this level of skill)”
Gradually I began to accept this situation.
The first and second creatures surprised me on the first day, but as you can imagine, you get used to it after a while.
Moreover, thanks to the power of the two magical creatures, I was able to digest the third one without any resistance. In short, defeating these guys was getting easier by the day.
Yes, I drank a lot and grow up.
Furthermore, with the addition of my mother’s breast milk power, I don’t feel like I’m going to lose to a strange creature.
However, I don’t know what will happen if I lose, so this backup from my mother is reassuring.
My dad is late. I think he is working hard again. I can’t wait for you to meet your little boy.
It’s been a few days since I moved to my parents’ house, but I still haven’t seen my father.
He says he’s working, but I wonder what he’s really doing. Is he working at a black company where he has to stay overnight every day?
On the night I was saying this, the father of my current life came home.
“It’s getting late. Let’s get this ritual started.”
The man who said this as soon as he came into the bedroom was a skinny guy.
He said he was my father, a man with a lack of vigor that was completely out of proportion to my mother, who was beautiful and had big tits.
He looked older than his age due to his worn-out suit and head of graying hair. He should not be older than his early forties, since he was married to my mother.
“Huh? (What? He’s my father? I was hoping for something else because my mother is beautiful, but who do I look like?)”
If I look like my father, he may not be ugly, but he definitely isn’t a ikamen.
I really hope that I look like my mother.
“He’s a very dashing boy, just like you.”
“I don’t think so, his eyes and nose look like yours….Now it is not the time for this, we have to prepare for the ritual.“
“Eh? ( What? ! I don’t care about the lovebirds’ love affair or anything else right now, just give me some concrete details!)”
As a child, I was relieved that the couple seemed to be getting along well, but now I was more concerned about the disturbing word – ritual.
The workaholic father left the room once and came back after changing his clothes.
He was dressed in a kimono, hakama, and suiboshi …… in one word: Onmyoji style.
Perhaps it was because he looked so old, but he appeared strangely well dressed.
My father, who was dressed in a formal costume that was too worn out to be a costume, set up a rope around the bedroom, put up some bills, placed small plates on all sides, lit a candle, and burned some very smelly incense.
Then he brought a kind of incense stick with an intense light at the tip close in front of me.
As I looked away from the glare, my father nodded his head in satisfaction.
“I think he’ s got potential. I’m ready to start ……. Reika, are you all set?”
“Yes, I’d be willing to die for the boy.”
Oh, come on, what a mess we’re making of things.
I mean, what’s going to happen now?
The bedroom I’ve been accustomed to for the past few days has taken on a very suspicious atmosphere with all the decorations.
It’s as if it’s really a magic ritual.
In this case, am I a sacrifice?
“I will now perform the birth ceremony!”
Before I knew it, my father was holding a ritual tool in his hand, like a priest would hold during an exorcism, and approaching me as I lay on the bed.
“Master Momiji, the founder of the Kyobe family…”
The father is waving the money from side to side, mumbling something.
I don’t know what he’s doing, but he said it was a birth ceremony, so it doesn’t sound like a sacrifice.
I had heard the surname “Kyobe” a few times at the hospital, but this was the first time I had heard the name of my mother.
With so much new information coming at me at once, the ritual proceeded while I stayed confused.
There are too many things that I really don’t understand.
I’m proud to say that I have common knowledge, but I can’t understand a word, so I guess they are technical terms.
I could only just barely make out the last part.
He said something at the end that bothered me.
Hey, I wasn’t told I was going to be tested!
What do you mean, ” the dad in costume”!?
“Here is the spirit of awakening that has been handed down in the House of Kyobe.”
The sliding door opens and my mother comes in with a bowl of rice.
The mother, who has the same Onmyoji appearance as the father, kneels down beside me, and the father grabs the food on the table.
“Eat, and overcome the challenges.”
The father holds a black rice ball in his hand. It was the size of a baby’s bite, and it was brought to my mouth.
If it had been just a simple rice ball, I would have opened my mouth honestly. But this one is no good.
“Hmm (What’s that, translucent maggots and translucent feather bugs are gathering. It’s definitely rotten)”
“Open your mouth like an adult. We have no choice.”
He brings it close to my mouth, which is clearly a breeding ground for strange creatures. That was enough to convince me that my father could not be trusted. There was no way I was going to open my mouth!
Even though I was determined to do so, the baby’s jaw could easily be opened by an adult.
Just by pressing both sides of my cheeks, a hole the size of a rice ball was made.
“Aaaaahhh (Stooooooop it!)”
“Boy, good luck.“
Damn it, I have to do my best now that my mother is cheering me on.
No matter how you look at it, it’s not something that people should eat, and it’s wrong to feed rice to an infant, but if my mother insists that I eat it, then I’ll try it.
gaping (esp. mouth)
The nostalgic texture of onigiri (rice balls) and the indescribable texture of the strange creature that I’ve gotten used to recently collaborated in my mouth.
Ugh, I knew this rice was rotten. It clearly has a taste that is not meant to be eaten.
“Yes. Boy, for God’s sake, drink your titties, okay?”
So, my mother’s breasts are suddenly given to me.
Oh, is this part of the ritual?
I don’t even have the teeth to bite down on the rice, so I’m just managing to squish it with my gums. The wriggling sensation of the strange creatures is disgusting, and I’m grateful for the breast milk as I want to swallow this disgusting food as quickly as possible.
Chuu-chuu-chuu …… chuu?
What is this warm flow of power?
Something unusual is flowing into me through my mother’s milk.
Oh, this is similar to the energy I got from absorbing those mysterious creatures.
The mother’s milk made the shitty rice flow down my throat. Along with it, a strange creatures in the shape of maggots and winged insects fell into my stomach.
What unfolded in my stomach was a battle against the invading strange creatures.
If I win, it will energize me. If I lose, what will happen to … me?
“Please, baby. Please, boy, drink more milk from my titties. Or else you’ll be …!”
What’s going to happen to me?
What? Hey, I honestly don’t need to drink any more of your boobs, but if you push me that hard,…, I’ll just drink a little bit more.
The moment I sucked on my mother’s nipple, an explosion went off in my stomach.
“Oh, boy, good luck. Don’t lose!”
“Tomoo-sama, Tomimura-sama, please bless him.“
Ohhhhhh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!
I’ve never felt such a strong erosion before.
There must have been an egg planted by a winged insect in the rice ball, and it hatched all at once when it felt threatened. I can feel more of them rampaging in my stomach than any other strange creature I’ve ever swallowed.
If I’m not careful, I’ll lose. Hey, are you trying to kill me by doing this to a newborn baby?
Fortunately, I’m not just a baby, I have a bigger mental capacity because of my former life.
When I was first admitted to the hospital, I went through many painful experiences like this. So, I can endure. I can endure it, but I doubt if I can win.
“Boy, drink the milk, please!”
“Well, I guess the amount was too much.”
“Agyaaaaa (Hey, asshole dad, what do you mean, “after all”?What do you mean, “I knew it”?You did that on purpose, didn’t you?)“
I obeyed my mother’s almost pleading voice and sucked again on the nipple that had been pressed against me.
I can’t win this without my mother’s breast milk enhancement.
Thankfully, she decided to lend me her power.
Then, the kind of vitality I had felt earlier flowed in with it, and I was able to suppress the explosive attack of the mysterious creatures at once.
As expected of my mother’s breast milk, it is more reliable than nutritional drinks.
“Yes, for the sake of the boy, for the sake of the Kyobe family, if only I could do something about it myself.“
Um, judging from that meaningful line, I’m guessing it’s a bad idea to suck on her breast milk any longer.
I immediately took my mouth off her tits.
No matter how I listen to it, the energy that’s pouring in must be something that’s related to my mother’s life.
That’s not good. I’ve just gotten a second chance at life, and I can’t accept the unhappy development of my mother dying at the same time as my birth.
I’m a happy-ending supremacist.(T/N – Happy-ending supremacist rise)
I don’t care about others, but I want my loved ones to be happy no matter what.
I decide not to suck on her tits any more, but my mother begs me to do it.
“Boy, please! Please drink even if you’re full! If you don’t, you’ll be in big trouble. I’ll protect you, please drink, hey!”
“You’re not absorbing enough of Reika’s spiritual power. You need to drink more.”
Mother, I’m sorry, but I can’t grant you that request.
I’m sorry, Mother. I’ve had enough already, you idiot.
I have no blind spot as I have taken in the vitality, or spiritual power, from my mother.
In the first place, I’ve taken in a lot of strange creatures in the past few days. The power I’ve gained from them is definitely on my side.
I already knew with my senses that this spiritual power would be the key to my battle with these guys.
I put all my energy into it and consciously filled my entire body with spiritual power.
The momentum of my efforts caused some silky poop to leak out, but I didn’t care at this point.
One by one, I subdue the strange creatures rampaging in my stomach and feel a chilling sensation — I increase my spiritual power even more.
Damn it, I can’t lose to this stupid ritual!
I’m going to grow up and beat the shit out of my father.
A feeling of anger, which I had forgotten in my previous life, stimulated my body.
With a boost from my mother’s spiritual power, the power of the mysterious creatures that was about to explode finally subsided.
How’s that? There you go. I won. Whoa.
“What … did you overcome Rite of Awakening on your own?”
There’s no way I could lose. Ooooh.
But what exactly happens if you lose?
While it’s good that I won this time, I’m a little curious.
“Then I give you the name of the one who has survived the ordeal. The name of this newborn is…”
T/N – Even with MTL this chapter was really hard to translate, but the next one was even harder. With all that said I am really enjoying doing this. If you like this novel please give a rating on Novel Updates, thank you.
