Dad rides a motorcycle in another world~ Let’s visit my reincarnated Wife with my Daughter~ - Chapter 1
The burning sound of fried eggs, the scent of miso soup, and the fluffy aroma of freshly cooked rice.
It was 6:30 in the morning. In one room of a 3LDK condominium, lived a middle-aged man and a high school girl.
The father was cooking food. He was completely unfamiliar with housework …
The fried egg was misshapen, the miso soup instant, and the freshly cooked rice may have had too much water, so it was slightly soggy.
Housework was solely the father’s job. His daughter, a beautiful high school girl, would not even turn the washing machine on once. However, her father did not complain and did her housework.
“Alright … Hey Anna, breakfast is ready.”
Anna Takeuchi, the resident of this condominium, came out of her room while habitually stroking her slightly wavy, jet-black hair.
She attended an all-girl school four stations away by train from the condominium, and was holding a smartphone in her hand. Her father, Takeshi Takeuchi, did not try to scold such a daughter, simply sitting on a worn-out chair.
“Thanks for the food.”
Anna started eating breakfast while playing with her smartphone.
Instant miso soup, misshapen fried eggs, and store-bought salads were familiar things to the Takeuchi family.
After breakfast, Anna quickly left. Leaving the tableware left on the table as it was.
“… Ah, the laundry.”
He has not done the laundry yet. However, it was almost time for him to go to work.
“Well, I’m off tomorrow, anyway…”
He put the dishes in the sink and took the bag full of work supplies.
Then, leaving for the same station Anna was heading to… He looked at the Buddhist altar in the corner of the room.
“… I’ll be back, Miyuki.”
Takeshi’s late wife, Miyuki.
It has been ten years since his wife’s death… Yet, he was still unable to recover.
Takeshi rides his bicycle to the station and then takes the train to his office.
He works as an ordinary office worker. The salary was moderately good, but the same things happen every day, and at the age of 38 he did not like to work.
However, he would like to save up for his daughter, Anna’s, college expenses and for the future. He had a hobby, but … he stopped because of his wife’s death.
“Hmm? … Strange.”
He arrived at the station, but it was very crowded.
Looking at the digital bulletin board, it seemed that there was a derailment accident. It was likely that there would be a delay of 30 minutes or more.
“Now I’m done for.”
Even as he waited at the entrance of the station, there was no sign that the train would move.
He put his hand in his pocket thinking about contacting the company…
“… Aah, I forgot my phone.”
He remembered leaving his phone at the front door.
Now then, just when he was wondering if he should go home……
“Hmm? Is that Anna… Oh, it’s really her.”
Anna, his daughter, was leaning against the wall at the station entrance while playing with her phone alone.
He could borrow his daughter’s phone and contact the company. Thinking so, Takeshi went to his daughter.
“Hey Anna, heeeyyy.”
“Hmm? Huh… what?”
Anna’s mouth fluttered. She seemed to be chewing gum.
Takeshi said apologetically.
“I’m sorry, I think I left my phone at the front door… I want to contact my company, can you lend me your phone?”
“… Well, alright alright. Here.”
“Ah, thank yo—”
The next moment, an out-of-control taxi crushed Takeshi and Anna to the wall.
Suddenly, he heard a voice.
It’s all my fault.
A man’s voice.
Takeshi didn’t understand what had happened.
When he opened his eyes, he was in a black space.
“Uh… huh, what?”
“A… A, Anna?! Hang in there, Anna!”
“Ugh… H-huh, dad?”
“Anna… Thank God.”
“… This, where is this?”
Takeshi couldn’t answer that question.
There was only the father and daughter pair inside the black space, and their luggages had disappeared.
“What is this, what is this?! What happened? Hey!”
“C-calm down, Anna!”
As he put his hand on her shoulder to calm her down, he heard a voice.
“I am really sorry…”
“I am Lucid, the god of life and death. The one who controls the cycle of life in your world.”
What appeared was the only white being in that black world.
White skin, white hair, long ears, and crimson eyes that made him look like an albino. The clothes he wore looked like national garbs.
“U-uncle… Who are you?”
“Lucid, call me that, Anna.”
“Eh, my, my name …”
“I play a role in circulating the lives of your world. It’s natural to know the names of all souls. “
Lucid smiled, a friendly looking smile, but he didn’t look human at all. Takeshi was wary and stood in front of Anna.
“Takeshi … I can’t apologize enough to you.”
“… Where is this? What happened to Anna and I?”
“… It’s all my fault.”
Then, the jet-black ground shone brightly.
There appeared familiar buildings, people, and …
Takeshi and Anna were astonished.
The familiar station had turned into hell.
Two people, a man and a woman, were killed in a runaway accident by an elderly taxi driver. The elderly taxi driver tried to escape, but was arrested as he screamed, and the two people, who seemed to have died on the scene, were carried by an ambulance.
The two people were—
“Don’t look, Anna—!”
It was not something they’re unfamiliar with.
By all means, they were Takeshi and Anna.
Takeshi hugged Anna and glared at Lucid, who looked down sadly.
“Y-you…. What do you mean by showing this to us?”
“You two have died … But, your souls still cannot be sent to the cycle of life, since you have deviated from destiny. This is my mistake… My second mistake. “
“What are you talking about…”
“Accept it. Takeshi, Anna … you two are already dead. “
Takeshi held his head while Anna was stunned.
“Your death was unplanned.”
When Lucid said that, Takeshi and Anna, who were stunned, raised their heads.
“Unplanned? What do you mean?”
“It means exactly as I said. Originally, you weren’t the ones supposed to die here. But, the flow of causality in the past has impacted you here. “
“What does that mean?”
“… I’m really sorry.”
Lucid lowered his head again.
“Miyuki Takeuchi … Her death has messed up your fate, causing you two to meet the death that you shouldn’t have.”
Takeshi unconsciously reached for Lucid, but he slipped away.
It was like a stereoscopic image. Shortly after thinking so, Takeshi reached for him.
“Please listen, I have something important to tell you..”
“Miyuki… Miyuki’s death, what did you say?!”
“Please calm down and I will explain it.”
“Hey, cut it out, you two!”
Anna grabbed Takeshi’s arm to stop him.
Lucid nodded and began to explain.
“Miyuki Takeuchi, she was originally supposed to die of old age… But due to a mistake I made, she died.”
“So I gave Miyuki a second life. She has been reborn in a world under my control.”
“Huh … Mi, Miyuki did?”
“Yes. It’s a world under my control. It’s under my control… Although I can’t interfere with it directly, even if I want to.”
“I want to send you there. If you wish it, I can give you special powers. Anything is at your disposal.”
“Eh, really? That’s the so-called cheat ability, isn’t it?!”
Then the ground brightened again and the view became like an aerial map.
“Its size is about the same as Earth’s, and its level of civilization is about that of Earth’s medieval period. It’s a world of monsters, dungeons, magic, and swords, however you put it.”
“A-amazing… Unbelievable, then, do they also have some kind of adventurer?”
“Yes, they do.”
“Great! Well then, make me a really strong mage!”
Takeshi glares at Lucid.
“Miyuki … Is she really in this world?”
“Yes, although, I don’t know where she is.”
“… Can I meet her?”
“She inherited her previous life’s memory. At her own request, even if she grows up, she will still look like “Takeuchi Miyuki”.”
“What will you do? You … What is your request?”
Takeshi remembered the face of his late wife.
Takeshi used to be a member of a biker gang.
Miyuki was his childhood friend and once said that she wanted to ride Takeshi’s motorcycle … But, at that time, Takeshi said, “I don’t take a woman on my bike,” and didn’t let her.
They got married, had a child, and were in their late twenties… In the end, he was too embarrassed to take Miyuki for a ride.
And then, Miyuki died in an accident.
He couldn’t even once give her a ride on his bike.
—Just once, I want to ride a tandem seat on a seaside tour.
“… I want to ride a motorcycle.”
“Motorcycle… Let’s see, let’s see.”
Lucid turned his palm toward Takeshi and nodded.
“I understand. Okay… I’ve got the image of the bike in your mind. I’ll give you exactly what you want.”
“… I see.”
“Eh, wha— Motorcycle?”
“Then, enjoy your second life in the other world… Farewell.”
“What, motorcycle… Eh?!”
The black world was dyed pure white.
Takeshi and Anna’s life in another world begins.
He didn’t know anything about death, fate, or anything else. However, one goal was born in Takeshi’s mind.
Once again, my wife … I want to see Miyuki.
