“I was able to obtain a good game today~”

A man skips down the streets in high spirits, Shinma Sosuke is a serious high school gamer.
Anyone who recognizes the gamer Sosuke clearly knows his love for games.
Sosuke often buys video games, about five times a month.

Today on the way home, a shopping bag of moderate size was held in both of his hands.
The bag is naturally filled with a large number of video games.
The bag is filled with games from all over the world is what Sosuke would like to say but… Saying that there are various types of genres would not be a mistake.

But is it okay for him to buy so many video games?
The answer is yes, he has a part-time job and all earned savings are spent on video games.

While Sosuke is walking cheerfully, his stomach suddenly grumbles.
Sosuke sighed as he patted his belly.

“Haa… I’m so hungry~ Let’s go to the convenience store.”

Sosuke restlessly looks for a convenience store.

“Oh, there it is.”

Sosuke finds the store without difficulty and goes in.

However ―――――

“I’m so hungry, what should I――”
“Quickly take out the money!”
“Ah, yes!!!”

――― That was a mistake.

Sosuke stares at the man threatening the clerk with a kitchen knife.
The knife that the man held was one of those big ones, about 50 cm in length.

Why do I have to come to the convenience store during a robbery!
I came even before the police.
This development is impossible…

Sosuke let’s out a depressed cry.

“Hey you!! Sit down there!”
“Nono, it’s okay, please continue.”

Sosuke backs off while saying so.

The clerk was judging me with his eyes, but that’s not my problem.

However, the robber gets impatient.

“O, oi! Wait a minute!! If you don’t stop I will kill you!”
“Haa… You can’t do it anyway, right? If you could the clerk would be already dead. Then, I’m leaving first.”

Sosuke pushes the door with his body and tries to get outside.

When I get out, I have to contact the police at once.
And after I return home, I will get to play some new games.
I don’t care that I’m hungry anymore, let’s hurry and get out of here.

“I, I told you to stoooooop!!!”
“I will say it again, I ―――”

Before finishing the sentence, Sosuke is attacked by acute pain.
Sosuke touches his back without understanding the situation.
There is a warm liquid feeling on his hand, he looks back at his hand, it’s covered in deep red colored liquid.

Eh, I was stabbed?

When Sosuke finally began to understand, he collapses on the floor.
The robber becomes hysterical.
He holds his head while muttering something.

“It, it’s not my fault, not my fault, not my fault, not my fault…”

Oioi, are you trying to escape from the reality?
Honestly… I really didn’t think I would get stabbed.
In situations like this, you normally don’t get stabbed right?

Ah… This is bad, things before my eyes get hazy.
Am I going to die?~
Death is surprisingly empty.
But at the very least, at the very least ―――

With a final effort, Sosuke shouted.

“I wanted to play the games I just bought!!!”

These were the last words of the man called Shinma Sosuke.
