January 16th～31st Pay day
On the 16th of January, a certain accident occurred.
Due to one of the footholds at the construction site crumbling, one of my colleagues fell down.
Luckily for him, it happened in front of my eyes. I immediately stopped time and carried him to a safe spot.
If I hadn’t stopped time immediately, the falling speed would have accumulated and would have probably resulted in my colleague getting hurt despite being carried to a safe place. Luckily I managed to stop time the moment it started to crumble.
To my surprise, we were immediately surrounded by a lot of people. Luckily, it didn’t turn into a problem.
Up until now, I had regularly used teleportation and stopping time in order to take breaks at work or go home after work. I’ve had it pretty easy.
Due to the accident, it occurred to me that it would actually be pretty cool if I could use my abilities not only for myself, but to help other people as well.
Looking at myself, who’s in desperate need of money and is able to stop time at will, some people would probably advise me to resort to underhanded means because I’ll never be caught. However, I despise those kinds of acts.
If the gacha was left there by god, it might as well just disappear if I do something bad.
If that strange gacha could exist, then it wouldn’t be strange if god also exists.
Despite saying all of that, I still have no idea on how to make a lot of money. However, I won’t give up thinking about it.
January 31st, my payday.
As usual, I brought my 140,000 YEN and started inserting them into the gacha.
This time, something unexpected came out.

‘An SSR Class Slate! A “Hero” on top of that!’
I got extremely excited. I immediately touched the slate, but nothing appeared.
‘Apparently I cannot become a Hero at this point in time. Or maybe there’s some kind of condition.’
Either way, I decided to eat all of the candies as usual. After which, my status changed to this.

‘I got distracted by the Hero slate, but what’s this “Telepathy” skill?’
After using Appraisal on it, I found that it can be used to talk to other people telepathically or read other people’s thoughts.
It could be somewhat useful. After all, it can be used to see through people’s lies.
‘If I’m able to read other people’s thoughts, there’ll be times when I might get hurt doing so. I need to be careful when using it.’
[ TL NOTE : Hey guys, it’s your translator here to make a quick announcement! After some discussion, and due to the fact that the pace of story is quite slow for the first 15 chapters we decided to raise the daily chapter count to 2 until the end of Arc 1! ]
