Chapter 102: Truth or Dare

Uesugi Kiyoshi didn't care about the economy and livelihood of hell, nor did he have any interest in demons and succubus beauties with horns and hooves. He devoted all his energy to exploring the dimensional rift.

After numerous experiments and improvements, the current dimensional transmission device only takes 5 seconds to attempt a transfer. With luck, a team of nearly a hundred adventurers could all enter in half an hour.

However, it seems that this channel connecting two worlds can only accommodate humans.

Once a ghostly figure enters, it will vanish into thin air. Although the Headless Sculpture can pass through, upon landing, it will turn into an ordinary sculpture. Even if sent back, it cannot be revived.

A group of people paid money to send away the new owners who came to demand the house. They used the Uesugi family's villa as a base, gathered information carefully, and tried to make contact with the people there.

This task was simple, the only risk was their identities being exposed. However, the team members were all young people from Hokkaido and Kagoshima, so the chance of meeting their other selves in Tokyo was very low.

Just then, Ode, who heard rumors, decisively visited.

He didn't scold the act of trespassing, nor did he take any measures to close the channel. Instead, he had a friendly discussion with Uesugi Kiyoshi.

"Mr. Uesugi, the other dimension is a great place! As far as I know, humans dominate there, unlike here where demons and anomalies are everywhere!"

"Really? Are you sure?" Uesugi Kiyoshi looked at Ode with skepticism, not hiding his doubts. "Such a great place, haven't your demons thought of expanding your territory there?"

"Although I don't want to admit it, this channel was not created by us. Besides, we, like the anomalies, cannot enter that world!"

Ode openly admitted his limitations and continued to promote vigorously.

"Others may have restrictions on their identities and risk being arrested by the local government, but Uesugi Kiyoshi there has been swallowed by the channel and can never come back to life. If it were you, you wouldn't have to worry at all!"

"You want me to leave, don't you!" Uesugi Kiyoshi suddenly realized.

"It's a bit much to say 'get rid of', it's more like 'send off', or even 'invite', why else would I keep this passage? I would have destroyed it a long time ago!"

Seeing no response from the other party, Ode gritted his teeth and increased the stakes.

"If you go over, you can take whatever you want, even people, as long as it's not in the thousands, I won't object, this is already my limit!"

"What if I don't go?"

"If you don't go... don't go?" Ode's voice suddenly increased in pitch, "Why wouldn't you go, weren't you always wanting to leave?"

"Who said that?"

"Isn't the aerospace industry that costs you more than fifty percent of your profit being prepared for escape? Another world is much better than space, besides, what is there worth staying for here?"

Uesugi Kiyoshi looked out the window, smiling and staying silent.

There, as always, was filled with busy Head Balloon delivery workers.

"...Is it strange? Frankly speaking, if you keep going like this, you will have an accident one day!"

Uesugi Kiyoshi quickly waved his hand and explained sincerely, "You misunderstood, Ode. I just don't want to leave my homeland. But don't worry, I'm considering it. Maybe one day, I'll suddenly change my mind!"

Ode stared at the human in front of them with fiery eyes, scrutinizing them from head to toe countless times. However, no matter what, they couldn't figure out the other person's thoughts and could only sigh helplessly.

"Mr. Uesugi, compared to demons, humans are far inferior in every aspect, but there's one ability I must admit is something even we are ashamed of."

"Oh, is it creativity?"

"...I don't think so. You don't belong to humans," Ode was pained by the remark and their expression seemed to momentarily contort, "I'm talking about the ability to lie. Demons disdain lying, but you humans are accustomed to it!"

"Lying is a manifestation of higher intelligence, Mr. Ode. Parkinson's patients in mental hospitals cannot lie because their brains can't handle this most complex and rigorous activity."

Pouring a cup of coffee for Ode, Uesugi Kiyoshi smiled and continued, "Besides, lying isn't always a bad thing. For instance, if you had the chance, how would you deal with me?"

Ode covered his face with a coffee cup, keeping quiet.

"Not answering is an answer. It might make me feel a bit bad, but if you lie, it will make things look better. Lying is like a lubricant for communication!"

"What if one day, humans can't lie anymore?"

"It's hard to imagine. Maybe society will undergo drastic changes... But you shouldn't do that, right?" Uesugi Kiyoshi looked at Ode warily.

Lying is a behavior controlled by the brain. If we can control people's brains directly, why not just turn everyone into fearful animals? Why bother creating strange things?

"Of course not, but I recently received a strange application. Maybe it can make humans honest!".

Looking at Uesugi Kiyoshi, Ode opened his mouth and showed a creepy smile, feeling a bit better.

"Speaking of which, we have to thank your strange loan. Otherwise, how could Little Devil qualify to submit the application? I wonder what tricks you have up your sleeve this time..."

Ode's extraordinary confidence and mockery slightly raised Uesugi Kiyoshi's guard. He sent warnings to all departments, but the following days were calm and the news from different places was normal, nothing important.

Could it be a strange bug that is causing the online problem?

Uesugi Kiyoshi started to relax his guard, until one early morning in early June, he heard a familiar voice while half-asleep.

"Ah, I really want to go on a date!"

Whose voice is that, seems a bit too loud?

...

Wait, that's his voice!!!

Realizing this, Uesugi Kiyoshi shivered, jumped out of bed, and then noticed that Nakasone Kazuko next to him was already awake, even had taken a shower, and was sitting on the sofa opposite the bed.

The girl in a bathrobe put her feet together, looking like she was listening attentively, with an elegant and charming posture.

Above her, there was a floating unidentified spherical object, covered in black fur, repeating the same content continuously.

"Oh, I really want to dance! Oh, I really want to dance! Oh, I really want to dance!..."

"Are you already tired of me, Kiyoshi?" the girl turned her head, smiling as she asked.
