Haru knew very well about this reward. He looked at the fruit that had a shape similar to a pumpkin with a purple color and black spiral pattern. He was considering whether he should eat it or not since he wouldn't be able to swim when he had eaten this fruit. He thought for a bit and thought about whether there was an option to erase the curse inside this devil fruit. He searched for a bit and found the option to erase the curse inside the devil fruit but as expected the price was quite expensive.
" Hmm, [Extract Sea Water Curse: 2000 points], [Extract Horrible Taste of Fruit: 5000 points], [Extract One People One Fruit: 10000 points]," Haru didn't expect that it would be this expensive. He looked at the devil fruit and was tempted to eat it since the power of this devil fruit was quite good.
Even though 'Horo Horo no Mi' was a paramecia type of devil fruit but the development of this fruit was very good and could even become similar to logia type of fruit since it could make an astral body later.
Haru also needed this fruit since he wanted to buy a haunted building later. He didn't hesitate and bought the [Extract Swimming Curse] option on the group chat for this devil fruit. He didn't buy the [Extract Horrible Taste of Fruit] since he was curious about the taste of this fruit and also he didn't want to waste his points.
The fruit was suddenly enveloped in white light.
Haru was startled but when the light disappeared he didn't see any change in this fruit.
Haru knew that he needed to eat this fruit or else he wouldn't know whether it was working or not. He didn't hesitate and bit this fruit into his mouth.
Kosaka had woken up from her sleep. She remembered that he had carried her to her room, 'Who is he talking with?' She remembered that he was talking to someone. She shrugged her shoulders and walked down to the first floor. She felt that it was nice to be pampered by him until she saw him faint on the table, "Huh? HARU!!!!"
Haru had a very pale expression on his face. His God's Tongue enhanced his taste buds and could taste that it was very horrible. It was very horrible that he fainted directly after eating this devil fruit. His head dropped on the table and his eyes rolled since it was very horrible. He felt that he was just sitting in his courtyard and suddenly a nuclear weapon dropped right on the top of his head. He wasn't sure but he felt that he suddenly went to the afterlife and saw his parents.
Haru heard someone scream and his body was shaken by someone. His tongue felt horrible and it was very hard for him to say something but he needed to say it or else he would die if this continued, "W - Water....."
"Water? Alright, I will get it for you," Kosaka said and went to the kitchen.
'Hurry up...' Haru swore in his life that he wouldn't even eat this thing again in the future even though the devil fruit could increase his strength.
"Here is water, can you drink it?" Kosaka asked.
Haru nodded weakly but he didn't have the power to do so since the damage that had been caused by this devil fruit on his tongue was just too much.
"Let me help you," Kosaka said and helped him to drink water slowly.
Haru let the water entered into his mouth cleaning the trace of devil fruit on his tongue. His shirt was wet since some of the water dripped from his mouth.
*Gulp! Gulp! Gulp!
"Ha....Ha....Ha...." Haru was very tired and looked at her, "Thank you, Kosaka."
"No problem, are you alright? Do you want me to call an ambulance for you?" Kosaka asked. She was a bit worried since his appearance was really pale.
"It's alright, I just need to rest, can you get water again?" Haru asked.
Kosaka nodded and went to the kitchen.
Haru was grateful that there was someone in the house or else he would have died.
"Here's the water," Kosaka said.
"Thank you," Haru drank the water by himself since he felt a bit better. He still could feel the trace of that horrible taste but it wasn't as bad as earlier.
Kosaka looked at the pumpkin on the table and asked, "Did you eat this?"
Haru looked at the devil fruit on the table and saw that it had turned into a normal pumpkin after he had eaten part of it. He looked at it with an afraid expression and said, "Don't eat this, you will get sick."
"I can see that," Kosaka had never seen this expression from him and could see that it was probably very horrible.
Haru sighed and said, "Thank you once again."
"No problem," Kosaka said and asked, "Where is everyone?"
"They went out to buy Manju," Haru said.
"Manju?" Kosaka thought for a bit and felt a bit hungry.
Haru looked at her and asked, "Did you always work that hard until midnight?"
"Yes, I need to finish this game as soon as possible since my future depends on this game," Kosaka said and clenched her hand really hard. She probably could go back and married but she didn't want to do that and wanted to succeed in this industry. She suddenly saw her hand being held by someone and looked at him, "Haru?"
"It's not your future again, it's both of us, let's make this successful," Haru said with a serious expression.
"Yeah," Those words struck right into her.
