The Happiness That The Shinigami Gave Me - V1 Chapter 4
Volume 1 Chapter 4
When Anna entered grade school, she went to the same school as me.
I always went to school together with her, walking just behind her. During her first year, she’d introduce me to her friends.
“We took that kid in because he is so pitiful.”
As she grew older, though, she always tried to keep me away from her.
When she was in the third grade,
“Don’t stand out at school. It’s embarrassing when you become the topic of a conversation.”
I nodded my head in agreement.
She didn’t need to tell me that. I didn’t want to inconvenience the Yamaoka couple, so I wouldn’t do that in the first place.
I already knew that the Yamaoka couple had been treating me really well. Not only were they kind to me, they also did a lot of things for me.
They told me that they were distant relatives of mine, but they’ve never told me anything else.
“We’ll tell you when you get older.”
That was what Uncle Yamaoka told me. In any case, I had no right to complain. They allowed me to stay in this house; they gave me food, clothing, and other necessities. It would be preposterous of me if I were to ask for more.
To repay the Yamaoka couple, I had to stay as a ‘normal child.’ I shouldn’t stand out; I had to be an average kid that would never do something out of the ordinary.
This way, I could easily immerse myself in the role that the world had given me.
