Collecting the Male Leads' First Nights - Chapter 13
Sylvia nodded slowly, as if she had no strength to speak anymore. If she went to the hospital, they would immediately notice that she was feigning illness, and that could never happen. Sylvia barely raised her shaky fingers to make an X, and Sevis nodded reluctantly.
“Ugh, then I’ll go to the village’s exchange store to sell the marbles. Miss Sylvia… You must be completely worn out…”
She didn’t know whether her acting worked, but it should work at this point. Sevis’ eyes soon became moist as if he was about to cry. He carefully laid Sylvia down and put the blanket over her, like a grandson who was taking care of his dying grandmother. Then, he made porridge with the crab meat they had obtained in the dungeon, put it on the table, and left. He looked at Sylvia with an anxious expression as he went out. Sylvia felt guilty looking at his face, but she really wanted to take a day off.
After Sevis left, Sylvia let out a cheer of joy. It was the first time she had a chance to rest after possessing the game.
Sylvia lay down as still as she could, enjoying her rest, except when she ate the porridge. When she died, she thought she was going to sleep as much as she could inside the coffin, but she was wrong. She couldn’t believe she worked this hard after dying.
Time flies when you’re working all day, but today, it was even faster. She only rested for a bit, and it was already dinner time. Sevis, who had left the house early in the morning to sell the marbles, brought in a whopping 4,000 gold. While she was lying in bed, Sylvia was surprised to hear that Sevis had earned 4,000 gold and opened her mouth.
“Wow… That’s quite good.”
“And this is not much. That dungeon is the lowest level dungeon. We’ll get more and more as we go to higher-level dungeons.”
“Alright, let’s go to the dungeons again next week.”
“Yes. Let’s go around the dungeons near the beach for a while. Wait, are you alright now?”
Sevis’ hands suddenly approached her and touched her arm. His hands, which had been massaging her from her forearm to her wrist for a while, went down and casually massaged her calves. He was unconsciously worried about Sylvia.
However, since Sylvia was a person who always had racy thoughts, she felt her body temperature rise dramatically at the touch of the worried Sevis.
‘His hands, all of a sudden…’
“Huh? Miss Sylvia! I think you’re getting hotter. Are you also having a fever?”
As Sylvia’s face turned red and she remained silent, Sevis touched her forehead a few times, then lowered his hands and lightly clasped her cheeks.
Sylvia felt her blood rushing to her nose in an instant at his actions. She swept her nose, and luckily, she didn’t get a nosebleed.
“Your face turned red like a tomato.”
“That… Well, I think I’ll be better when I sleep.”
Sylvia turned her head and lay down again. Sevis’ appearance, worrying with his ears on his head and his eyes drooping, was really provocative to Sylvia.
‘Ugh… He’s so cute. The game is tailored to my tastes. How did they know I like cute things?’
Sevis worriedly swept over Sylvia’s bangs, then got up and went to the kitchen. There was a rustling sound, and Sevis brought the steaming porridge on a tray.
Sevis, who dragged a chair to sit in front of her, took a spoonful of porridge, blew on it, and then fed it to her. Sylvia was energetic because she had been lying down all day, but seeing Sevis worried, she felt like she had to pretend to be in more pain.
Sevis sighed in relief as Sylvia moved her head to eat the porridge, unlike in the morning.
“Phew, it looks like your joints are moving normally, so you must be feeling a little better than before. You have to work tomorrow, so you shouldn’t be sick…”
Tomorrow was the day of the temple part-time, so she could never miss it.
‘I have to see Noel’s handsome face one more day, so I can’t miss it.’
Sylvia shook her head and smiled faintly. It would be strange if she had recovered suddenly, so she had to act like she hadn’t gotten that much better.
“Ah… I will be better tomorrow. I have to go even if I’m not better. … Ugh.”
“Eat everything even if you don’t have an appetite.”
Sylvia was moved as she watched Sevis feed her the porridge with a spoon. As soon as she reached adulthood, her parents died and she lived alone, so it was the first time she was experiencing someone feeding her porridge while she was sick.
One of her ex-boyfriends didn’t pay attention to her, saying that she would get better if she slept, and the other ex-boyfriend only played games all day long in front of the sick Sylvia.
‘I really had no luck with men.’
Was it only after she died that she was compensated for her bad luck?
When she had finished eating, she lay down, covered with a blanket. As she kept lying down with a full and warm stomach, she slowly started falling asleep.
“Sevis… I’ll sleep first.”
“Good night, Master.”
Sylvia plunged into a deep sleep as she gazed at Sevis, who was smiling softly, with a blurred vision.
How many hours did she sleep? Sylvia, who had been asleep for a long time, was forced to open her eyes at the loud warning sound that rang in her head. Although she didn’t do anything, she heard a message notification. Sylvia, who was having a good dream, was somewhat annoyed.
‘What is it, suddenly getting a message when nothing is happening…’
Sylvia yawned and rubbed her eyes. Seeing the message window after being annoyed for a moment, her eyes grew like a large bell.
“Ahem… hm? What is this?!”
[Sylvia rested excessively despite not being in pain. Karma has increased by 100 points.]
100??? For taking just a day off? At the immense disgrace, Sylvia’s mind became clear as if cold water had been poured over her.
At that moment. It started to smell like burning from somewhere. Sylvia sniffed for a more detailed smell. It was like the smell of eating an egg in a sauna.
‘What, did Sevis burn the food?’
[Your karma has exceeded 100 points. You have gotten closer to Slothful Hell by 11,000,000 steps. 89,000,000 steps left.]
The moment she saw the message, hell flashed briefly before her eyes and disappeared. Inside hell, people with nose rings, like cows, plowed the field with painful faces.
Sylvia rolled down from her bed, screaming in horror. Although the image of hell disappeared in an instant, it wasn’t easily erased from her mind. Sylvia calmed her thumping, violently beating heart.
The system even used the sense of smell to give her fear. Since she was possessing the game, there was nothing weird about smelling it, but she couldn’t believe that the smell of eggs in a sauna was the smell of hell’s sulfur fire. It was a gruesome thing.
With a trembling hand, she opened the record window.
‘I accumulated 10 karma in the tavern because of that hairy man, and 100 because I rolled around all day long yesterday. I can’t believe I’ve gotten closer to hell by 11 million steps just because my karma reached 110 points. So, if my karma reaches 1000 points, will I reach the end of the game or whatever and go straight to hell?’
Rising by 100 points for loafing around all day was the worst. She bit her lips hard with a grieved expression. God said that if she doesn’t play the game properly, she will go back to Slothful Hell.
She thought she would go to hell if she could not purify the contaminated energy because God would not regain his power and wouldn’t be able to grant her wish. But it turned out that when her karma reaches 1000, she will go straight to Slothful Hell without even seeing the ending.
Sylvia closed her eyes tightly at the bleak reality.
‘I guess I can’t rest even for a day… Alright, let’s rest after going to Heaven…’
She wanted to punch her yesterday self in the face for rolling around all day. She was supposed to be working hard. She couldn’t believe that she had feigned illness in just a few days. She had nothing to say even if she were to be taken to Slothful Hell right now.
This game was a complete educational game for people with a YOLO mentality.
As she sat down with her hands wrapped around her face, Sevis, who was startled to hear her scream while brushing his teeth, rushed to her with his toothbrush in his mouth.
“Miss Sylvia, what’s wrong?”
“Ugh… Nothing. It’s nothing, Sevis. I must have had a nightmare.”
It was difficult to explain the concept of karma to Sevis, who didn’t even know that this world was a game. Even if she said that she had gotten closer to hell for feigning illness and loafing around, it would still be hard for him to understand. Sylvia felt sorry after seeing his face filled with worry.
‘I can’t believe I was loafing around in the game after almost going to hell for loafing around my whole life. I feel sorry for Sevis. He’s worried like that without knowing that I was feigning illness…’
“You’re sweating. Your bangs are soaked. Your clothes too…”
Looking at her with a worried expression, Sevis wiped her forehead with a towel. Letting out a sigh, Sylvia raised her body with shaky knees.

“Ugh… It’s nothing. I’m fine. I must go to work.”
Sighing once again, Sylvia got up and started getting ready to head out. With a resolute look on her face, she walked without hesitation and ate breakfast. Then, she moved orderly, like she was going to go to war. As she left the house, Sevis, who was behind her, shouted, “Fighting!”, and encouraged her.
Walking faster than usual due to her rising agility, Sylvia waved her arm and walked past the buildings at a rapid pace.
‘Alright, you f*cking game. I’ll just keep attacking without resting. Whether it’s a dungeon or a man. I’ll destroy everything.’
