“You’ll be handling this task, then.” The Eldest God said during the meeting.
The third born, who looked at the eldest with widened eyes, muttered,
“...You’ve not done anything since the beginning of the fifth epoch.” The second born spat.
“What about all the young ones? None of them have done anything either!” The third born argued.
“Seriously? You’re comparing yourself with children who haven’t even completed their first ascension? Shame on you, Avahul.” The fourth born goddess hissed.
“Alright. Fine. What task have I been assigned to?” Avahul asked the Eldest.
“Ange, Eios, and Leit shall collapse into each other if their progenitors do not achieve stability. Their souls are already dissipating, and the Eri constellation shall fall into disharmony at this rate.”
“The demons were able to corrupt three newborns?” The third born muttered, solemnity finally seeping into his eyes.
“…Yes. The demons have attacked very aggressively, and the rest of us are occupied at the moment. This task is too big for the fledglings to handle. Please, Avahul, for once, please bear the discomfort and do this properly.” The eldest pleaded.
Avahul nodded silently.
“Wouldn’t the mission be much easier if there’s just multiple versions of me?” Avahul muttered, his previous worries all fading to the back of his mind.
“Ava… Is it really alright to experiment with such an important mission?” A teenager with bright red hair asked hesitantly.
“I’ll only choose a human who I deem is suitable, and make sure to supervise them at all times.” Avahul assured.
He felt like a genius. This way, the workload would be much less, and he could complete this mission with flying colors.
I looked at my phone with deadpan eyes.
This was so boring.
I feel so goddamn bored!
I scrolled through videos without any particular goal, trying to find something that would interest me.
An obnoxious male voice shouted.
“...Ugh, goddamn ads.“ I muttered while looking at the ‘Video will begin after the ad’ symbol with abject hate.
-EVERY ACTION OF YOURS WILL HAVE GREAT INFLUENCE!-
I was about to click on another video, when the visuals of the ad caught my attention.
The game that was being advertised looked quite fun, and it was right up my alley too.
I knew better than to trust random ads, of course, but I was just that bored, bored enough to try random games based on their ads.
In the worst case scenario, I could at least laugh at the sheer difference between the ad and the actual game. There’d be no harm done.
I clicked on the ad, which redirected me to the app store.
‘...Five hundred thousand downloads? Man, maybe the game isn’t that bad after all? The reviews are positive too.’ I thought.
It was three GB, too. Had I finally found something to battle my boredom?
I shook my head. I knew better than to fall for good statistics.
I clicked download.
I stared silently at my phone.
I glanced at the books littered over my bed.
‘...Do I really have to resort to studying to ease my boredom, now?’
I found no excuses for procrastinating any longer. Guilt was catching up to me.
“Ugh, for goodness’s sake.” I muttered while sitting up.
