"How was your mission?"
Yukari asked Wu Yan with a look of intrigue.
"You completed it, right?"
Wu Yan scratched the back of his head.
"Well, there were a lot of problems but I finished it anyway."
Yukari closed the fan in her hand by slapping it against her palm.
"It's a rare chance for you to go straight to the peak of demigod power, seize this opportunity."
"Yeah, I get that. But, crap just keeps popping up."
Wu Yan recalled the time when the Archer Card became Kuro and he almost gave up because he couldn't kill a little girl.
"The Path of Demigods is a once-in-a-lifetime chance. But, sometimes, you need to take the good with the bad so..."
"Seems like this round pushed you to grow in more ways than one..."
"Just stating my reflection on the matter..."
Wu Yan shrugged.
"The second round had its own unique challenges that caught me off guard. The main obstacle was created by my own conscience though."
"Anyway, just try to finish as many rounds as you can."
Yukari waved her fan.
"With the Isekai Metropolis here, we should be fine in Silvaria for a while. Focus your energy on clearing as many rounds as possible..."
"That is my plan. I am embarking on the third journey."
"Yukari, won't you follow me on my trip?"
"Do I look like I would bother running around to do chores?"
"As much as I am interested in looking at lives in other worlds, I prefer to do them at my own pace instead of being sent running all over the place."
"That's a lazy life, not a my-pace life."
Wu Yan rolled his eyes.
"How did you manage the Great Barrier with such an attitude?"
"I am just supervising the Great Barrier. The management was left with the quirky Miko who can't keep herself out of trouble."
"I am always like this back in Gensoukyo."
Yukari hid the lower half of her face behind her fan.
"I am behaving as I did in Gensoukyo."
It is like she wasn't serious about her statement but Wu Yan could tell that she meant it. She looked out for Gensoukyo in her own manner.
She used her Gaps to spy on other people. As the founder of Gensoukyo, it's hard to imagine that she would let it go to ruin.
If something truly happened then Yukari would appear to solve it.
She is a Tsundere.
She let the people in Gensoukyo handle the smaller tasks.
"You're really not coming along?"
Wu Yan teased her.
"It might be Gensoukyo, you know? If something happens while you're not there..."
"You can solve it."
Yukari pushed her job to him.
"You have my Red Jade mode, right? You're technically me when you're using it, right?"
"Talk about giving me a huge office."
Wu Yan sighed.
"The Red Jade mode has a time limit. Plus, I only have your abilities, not your other attributes..."
The youkai who lived for millennia, Yakumo Yukari.
Even if he had the same abilities, he wasn't sure he could solve problems as well as the Youkai Sage.
There are other powerful entities in Gensoukyo. To manage those monsters would entail more than just brute strength.
Yakumo's wisdom and wits made her the top dog of Gensoukyo.
Making him the manager of such a place...
Gensoukyo is like a place with super-powered entities who are as capricious as brats. Some are just gluttons while some are dangerously playful.
Wu Yan had a headache just thinking about them.
"Well, it's not as hard as you think."
Yukari smiled when she saw Wu Yan's green face.
"I might be the creator but only Reimu is invincible inside Gensoukyo. She can handle almost anything that comes up."
"I think she's part of the problem."
Wu Yan retorted.
If you two put in the effort, I am sure Gensoukyo would be known as Paradise."
"I told you."
"Go try out that place."
"Are you being serious or just messing with me?"
Wu Yan wasn't sure if Yukari had another intention hidden within her playful taunt.
"I can't handle that place."
"Just let Reimu handle things over there."
"Let Reimu deal with the bigger tasks while your harem and Ran can handle the smaller issues. Just live like a king over there, doing nothing to earn your keep..."
"Yukari, I am so sorry."
Wu Yan bowed.
"I am sorry, I shouldn't have used you as an OP guide."
Yukari beamed again.
"How unfortunate, I would have allowed you guys to manage that place."
"You sound so chill, letting us run that place..."
"Aren't you afraid we might run the place into the ground?"
"There are many troublesome brats in that place."
Yukari pursed her lips.
"Compared to them, you guys are as easy to deal with as babies."
Yukari turned her back to him.
"Well, who are you going to take for the Third Round of the Path of Demigods? Mikoto and Hinagiku?"
He tilted his head.
"Is there a problem?"
"Nope, I just recalled something..."
"Two of your harem members are coming out of the lake tonight."
Wu Yan flinched.
"You will know soon enough."
Yukari waved her fan.
"The two of them might be busy hanging out with the Sisters. You should go with those two from the lake."
"They should be happy, I imagine..."
Yukari left while Wu Yan continued watching the Sister live their lives down there.
"Who will they be?"
