Sig headed to the grassland at the edge of the forest. There, a large tree stretched towards the sky.
“This is a tree that delivers our prayers to God. I’m relieved it’s growing well.”
“To God? Huh…”
Was it like a radio tower? Maybe I should try contacting God from here next time.
Fortunately, the tree grew close to the house. It was located past the eastern forest, in an open grassland. It’s shape was similar to a fir.
My stare was fixed at the top of the tree when Sig called to me from behind. As I turned my head to him, Sig’s nervous eyes met with mine.
“When will that person cross over the bridge?”

His sudden question surprised me, and I put my guard up. “Err, sorry… I’d need to ask God to know that…”

When the time came, I would say goodbye to Sig and the chickens, huh? In the end, it felt a little lonely.
Contrary to my sadness, Sig’s eyes sparkled with joy. What an honest person. Completely oblivious to others’ feelings.
Somehow, I grew relaxed looking at his innocent expression.
“To that end, let’s make this a good place to live, Sig.”
“Yeah, that’s right.”
We looked at each other, laughter spilling from our lips.
Afterwards, Sig took hold of my hand again and we made our way back home. Once we stepped foot out of the forest, his grip tightened.
“…Will there be only one person coming?”
My eyes widened at the unexpected words, and I whipped around to look at his face. “Isn’t one enough?” I asked.
“I want three.”
The purple eyes staring down at me were serious.
Three people… In other words, did that mean he wanted at least three brides? No, he didn’t know that the “person” would be his bride, so he might have simply thought that having more visitors would be fun.
“Now, now, won’t it be too crowded here to welcome three other people?”
“You’re the one who said that I should be more greedy.”
I certainly said that, damn it!
But yesterday you had also said you were satisfied with this world, and that you had everything you wanted already.
I was so happy about it, but now…
Somehow, my mood tanked again.
I slowed my pace, pulling my hand out of Sig’s hold. I could feel his gaze on me, but I pretended not to notice it.
I’m sorry, but you have to be satisfied with only “one person.” After all, this world’s capacity was limited to two people.
