Chapter 4-9: Trick or Treat a Month Later

Housou-no-kami slowly approached.

“It’s time for a ‘Trick or Treat’ a month later, Uta.”

(…Ah!)

The god extended his arm towards Uta, and maggots oozed out of it and fell to the ground.

Uta had Sukunabikona-no-kami’s head resting on his knees so he couldn’t move away.

There was nothing he could do before this scene straight out of a horror movie.

“What’s the matter? You’re looking awfully terrified.”

Housou-no-kami knelt down on one knee in front of Uta.

The god’s mouth that had lowered to Uta’s eye level had a faint smile on it.

“Are you scared of me?”

“…Ngh…”

His stained hands stroked Uta’s cheek before rubbing the rest of his face.

“You must hate seeing me in this form, right? Or did you not really care much about me before?”

The filthy hand touched every inch of Uta’s face before slowly retreating.

Only after that could Uta finally breathe.

“I would never—”

“Hm…?”

“Never hate you! But I don’t get you…”

Uta tried to uncover the god’s true intention from underneath this unfamiliar visage.

“Why are you doing all of this? And Sukunabikona-san said that you brought a bunch of gods of diseases with you.”

Sukunabikona-no-kami must have fainted as he still hadn’t moved yet.

“Why, you ask?”

Housou-no-kami repeated the question.

“You don’t even know the reason?”

“Eh…?”

Uta didn’t know how to respond.

“You’re so sinful, Uta… It’s because you foolishly said that you liked me.”

—But I like you?

While others said they despised him, only Uta said those words.

“If someone like you tells me that they love me, then naturally I’m gonna be interested. But to get my hands on you, I gotta get rid of the nuisances…starting with this guy.”

Housou-no-kami cast a sidelong glance at Sukunabikona on top of Uta’s knees.

“I needed power to win. So, I went to the realm of the dead and exchanged my soul for the power of corruption.”

“Power of…corruption…?”

“Yeah. As long as I carry this corruption on me, I’ll be the strongest.”

Housou-no-kami’s smile twisted. The maggots that were crawling over his fringe fell to the ground.

(Oh…)

Since his attention was focused on that, Uta didn’t realize that the god grabbed his chin.

“That’s why you’ll have to bear with this form.”

With his chin held in place with one hand, his lips were forcibly stolen.

The god’s warm tongue traced the shape of his mouth.

“…Gh, sto—”

Uta pushed against Housou-no-kami’s body while still trying to protect Sukunabikona.

“Stop it. I don’t want this from you…!”

“Then what do you want?! Did you think I’ll cuddle up on your lap and meow for you?!”

The god looked enraged and grabbed Uta’s throat.

“I told you already. You’ll be the one with the collar on!”

He tightened his grip. Uta struggled to breathe.

Sukunabikona’s head slipped out from his arms and dropped to the ground.

(Sukunabikona-san…!)

This shocked the unconscious god awake. Sukunabikona opened his eyes and grabbed Housou-no-kami’s ankle.

“Dammit, Housou… Cut it out! I won’t allow you to be violent against humans…!”

“HA! Well, aren’t you persistent?!!”

Housou-no-kami kicked Sukunabikona’s body, sending the small god flying.

“—Gah!!!”

(Sukunabikona-san?!)

Uta couldn’t believe anyone would do that to someone who was just unconscious not too long ago.

He reflexively glared at Housou-no-kami, but the god didn’t care. He carried Uta in his arms and stood up.

“Come, Uta. You’re mine now.”

Uta’s body, surrounded by those cold arms, was lifted high in the air.
