Chapter 1-5: My God
“Uta, this is hard to say, but I have to tell you something.”
Haraedo began to speak.
“Have to tell me? Hard to say?”
Uta steeled himself.
A car drove past the street in front of the gates and it lit Haraedo-no-kami from behind, creating a halo.
The man slowly opened his mouth.
“Your wish seems to be for a thriving business, but…”
It was true that Uta had prayed for that numerous times.
“Gods aren’t exactly omnipotent. We have our own dominions.”
“I’m a god of exorcism. I specialize in cleansing calamity and corruption.”
“It’s pointless to pray to me for a thriving business.”
Uta involuntarily voiced his troubles.
“Wait! But, just a little —”
“Even a little is impossible!”
The god said, interrupting Uta.
“Even you would be troubled if a baseball player prayed to you, saying, ‘Please let me hit a home run!’ Right?”
“That would be a problem.”
“No, but, umm…?”
Uta offered water, rice, and alcohol to the household shrine every day. He would also offer fruits and sweets when he had them. Even when Sungmin scowled, Uta had no doubts. So, by continuing to believe and pray, what did that make him?
When he thought that, he felt faint.
“Hey, you okay?”
Uta unsteadily plopped down on the bench, so Haraedo grew worried.
As the god stroked Uta’s back, he smelled of rice and Japanese rice wine. The face of the god was close to him; it was masculine and his skin glowed healthily.
He was mistaken about the one who would support him. That was a fact. But…
On the other hand, he couldn’t explain why his heart pounded at the fact that this god was his family’s god.
