What made the girl stiffen was the sharp knife that James was holding in his hands.
She pushed him back fearfully.
Then, she looked around in horror and realized that there were corpses of chaos creatures hanging all around her.
In particular, there was the corpse of a chaos creature just beside her.
Its internal organs had been flipped inside out, allowing her to see them clearly.
She instantly gasped in shock and fainted.
“No, I’ve said this so many times. Why do you still not believe me? I’m really not the Evil God!”
James dodged back and forth in his room.
He was explaining himself to the young girl on the bed, who was wrapped in a blanket.
“Listen to me! Look at me! I’m just a very ordinary person! Do I look like an Evil God? Do I look like one?!”
The young girl raised her head and looked at him for a quick second. Then, she withdrew her gaze as if she had been electrocuted.
After that, she then wrapped the blanket even tighter around herself.
One could not blame her for being afraid. After all, she had come here as a sacrifice.
Her spirit had also been greatly tormented during the teleportation process.
Thus, it was not easy for her to believe that James was not the Evil God after she arrived.
However, when she turned, she had seen James smiling at her with a knife in hand.
Furthermore, she was surrounded by the corpses of chaos creatures and could even see their internal organs clearly.
Thus, she had reached the limit of her endurance last night and passed out.
So now, no matter what, she refused to believe James’s claim that he was not the Evil God.
Seeing the fear and unease in the young girl’s eyes, James felt helpless as well.
He dared to swear to the Evil God that he really wasn’t trying to scare this young girl yesterday.
However, the current situation was indeed not suitable for him to forcibly convince her.
Feeling helpless, he could only sit by the side and explain everything clearly.
“That’s why I said you guys got the wrong target.”
“I’m really not some Evil God! It’s just that those cultists mistook me for the Evil God for some unknown reason!”
“That’s why you were sacrificed as a tribute.”
“Thus, you really don’t have to worry. You didn’t enter the space of any Evil God.”
“I’m really just an ordinary person!”
“The corpses of those chaos creatures are no more than the sacrificial offerings from those cultists!”
“So, you will not be in any danger!”
It took nearly half an hour for James to explain everything clearly.
“Are you telling the truth?!”
The young girl asked him with some skepticism after her emotions subsided.
“It’s true! I dare swear to the Evil God!”
James looked solemn as tried to make his words sound slightly more convincing.
After all, this young girl before him was really quite skeptical.
The young girl wrapped herself in the blanket and walked around the room.
There was a dried oil lamp, a fireplace made of stone, and a mahogany cupboard…
Even though the village chief didn’t have these things, this didn’t stop her from recognizing what they were.
This really did not seem like the world of the Evil God.
After all, why would the Evil God use the things from the human world!
Besides, what he had just said was quite true.
After she finally believed that this was not the world of the Evil God and that this man was not the Evil God, she collapsed on the bed.
“I’ll go ahead and make breakfast. You rest first!”
James said to the young girl.
He had to go to work this morning. Thus, he woke her up just as the sun rose.
When he thought about it, he realised that she definitely must not have slept well.
Thus, she could take the chance while he was cooking to catch up on some sleep.
There were massive stone altars, burning torches, and grim-faced villagers…
There was also the terrifying feeling of dropping into an ice reservoir and falling into a volcano…
At the end of the fall was an indescribable and terrifying face.
Then, the young girl jolted awake.
She panted heavily, her forehead covered in cold sweat.
She looked around at her surroundings. Then, she touched her cheeks and the soft mattress underneath her in a daze.
“It’s real. Everything is real!”
“I’m safe now…”
She looked around and started crying out of excitement.
Everything was over!
I’m safe now!
I’m going to start a new life!
She looked at the bright and warm room. At that moment, the young girl’s heart was filled with anticipation and yearning for a new life.
Then, the door opened.
James looked at the young girl who had woken up and smiled. “Get up, it’s time for breakfast!”
With that, he turned around.
The young girl sat on the bed and stared blankly at the door.
This man was not only handsome, but also gentle.
She remembered James explaining to her over and over again. He had even given up his bed to her and had made her breakfast as well.
Thus, the girl’s heart was filled with warmth.
Mr. James was such a warm person.
The girl got out of bed and walked out of the door.
She realized that there were many things here that she had never seen before. However, she could still vaguely tell that this house was very simple.
There were cracked walls, old furniture, and worn-out cutlery…
Everything showed that Mr. James seemed very poor.
However, even then, there were still two pieces of fresh rye bread on the table.
This kind of rye bread could only be eaten once a year where she was from.
Furthermore, it was the kind of rye bread that no one bought and was about to expire.
Regardless of size or color, those pieces of bread were inferior to the ones in front of her now.
Thus, despite his poverty, Mr. James had still prepared such a hearty breakfast for her.
She really… did not know to repay him.
“What are you waiting for? Come and eat!”
James looked at the stunned girl and urged her to eat.
As he spoke, he also pushed a bowl of stewed meat soup in front of her.
“Try my cooking.”
The girl sat at the table and curiously picked up a spoon. Then, she scooped a spoonful of soup into her mouth.
A fresh taste that she had never tasted before exploded in her mouth.
In an instant.
The young girl cried!
But this time, it wasn’t because of fear or excitement.
It was because she was touched!
This was the first time she had tasted meat soup.
This was also the first time she had tasted food with such rich flavors in this world.
In her poor village…
Even the cheapest rye bread could only be eaten once a year.
Not to mention stewed meat.
Moreover, because they were poor, they didn’t even have seasonings for their normal meals.
Their meals were all bland and relied on the original taste of the ingredients.
This stew let her know that…
She had come to a new world and she could feel this clearly.
She was alive!
She was truly living in this world.
Everything here was real.
Meanwhile, James, who was sitting beside her, was slightly flustered when he saw the young girl cry after taking a sip of the soup.
“Hey, can I ask if my food is that bad?”
“Do you have to cry after taking a bite?”
Puzzled, he tasted the soup and smacked his lips.
Although it was his first time making it, the taste was not bad. It couldn’t be so bad that she cried after taking a sip right?
The young girl laughed when she saw his puzzled look.
“No, Mr. James. This is the best food in the world!”
