43 Episode 43

 The crowded stands were cheering loudly.

 I took a position in a corner of the stadium ground, out of the way of the players, and watched the battle that was about to begin.

 The players, Rio, Iris, and Maifa, along with Adolf the Sturdy Sword, Dorothy the Queen, and Jake the Wise Wolf, were facing each other in the middle of the field. The three of them stood facing each other near the center of the ground.

I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's worth it. The players all bow.

I'd like to thank you.

 At the referee's direction, the six men and women bowed their heads in greeting.

 The signal to start the match is not yet given.
 From the crowded spectators' seats, you can hear the following voices.

What's with them? ....... I thought they would lose quickly because they are such cute girls and I've never heard of them, but they finally made it to the finals .......

But no matter what, there's no way they're going to beat those three guys from King's Landing.

You never know. You've seen how they've fought up to this point. They've won every one of them by a comfortable margin.

Yeah. I can't believe what I've seen. ....... I think I might be a fan of those girls. They're super cute, and they'll make the best idol unit.

I know. If there's a live concert or something, I'll go see it.

That's right.

 ...... Hmm?

 I looked towards the voice in the audience and glared at the two male audience members there as hard as I could.

 The two spectators, noticing my murderous intent, screamed, "What the ......? They screamed and shook their heads at me.

 ...... Totally.
 Don't look at my boys with impure eyes.
 I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what's going on.

 On the other hand, the players of the two camps facing each other in the middle of the field were exchanging words of fate.

 It was Jake, the Wise Wolf, who started it off.
 The boy with the long, shaggy silver hair licked his tongue and said, "Hey kitties.

"Hey, kittens, I've seen you fight your way up here. I'm glad you're growing up so well. I'm glad you've grown up so well. Hee hee.

 Next in line was "Queen" Dorothy.
 I'm not sure if you've heard of it, but I have.

I love to torment strong, pretty girls and make them scream," she said. You are some of the best prey I've ever met. Why don't you make some nice noises today?

 And last but not least, Adolf the Hard Sword.
 I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea.

I've been waiting for ...... this moment, you strong b*tc*es. I have been waiting for this moment for a long time, you strong b*tc*es. I get the greatest pleasure from breaking down the strong and turning their faces to the color of despair. Come on, b*tc*es, show me how strong you are. I will crush your bodies, your pride, your confidence, everything.

 I was listening to the words of the three men in the capital from a distance, and I thought again.

 ...... Ah, yes.
 I'm not sure what to make of it.

 I don't know why so many talented people are so weird.
 I'm the only sane one.

 But the pervertedness of those three guys, combined with their lack of ethics, social status, and talent, is very annoying.

 I wish such perverts would keep to themselves and not bother others.
 I'm not a personable person either, so I understand, but a little more ......?

 On the other hand, Rio, Iris, and Maifa also responded.

You know, you guys are still creeping me out. I'm sure you're right.

Rio's right, isn't he? Just because you're strong doesn't mean you can do whatever you want. You were taught by a teacher at one time, right? Why can't you try to be as cool as him? I'm not sure what to say, but I'm going to say it.

I'm not hating on your brother because he's a good pedophile. ...... Bad perverts need to be killed. ...... be prepared.

 When Adolph, Dorothy and Jake heard this, they all looked at me at once.
 You'll be able to find a lot more than just a few.

 ...... That's strange.
 I wonder why all three of my kids are referring to me.

 I'm not sure if I'm a good example of a brave person or not.
 Aren't I too much of a god among them?

 Also, I think Iris is the most bitter.
 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I think it's a good idea.

 On the other hand, Jake, the Wise Wolf, hears this and snickers.

"I see. So you're all madly in love with Mr. Brett. You guys are pretty good at forbidden teacher-student love, aren't you?

 No, that's not the right way to put it.
 But when Rio and Iris heard that, they jumped up and down.

I'm not saying that now! That's not what I just said! I'm not sure if you've heard of it, but I'm sure you've heard of it.

It doesn't matter who I like, it doesn't matter to you! It's not that I'm not interested in you, it's that I'm not interested in you.

...... Rio, Iris, calm down. ...... Both of you are too obvious. Also, you're ruining the serious atmosphere.

 Chaos. .......
 I don't know what's going on, but the conversation is going in a direction I don't understand.

 The referees, with a dumbfounded look on their faces, cautioned, "Both schools, please refrain from talking to each other.
 Yeah, the ref did a good job.

 Jake shrugged his shoulders, and Rio and Iris stared at him like he was a jerk, but the referees looked at them sharply once more, and both went to their starting positions quietly.

 Incidentally, the referee, who seemed to be a single man, clicked his tongue and glanced at me.
 Oh, wait, was that my fault?

 At any rate, the chaotic atmosphere that had momentarily prevailed settled down for the moment.

 The six male and six female players stood at the starting point of the game, each doing their own preparatory exercises, stretching, meditating, and relaxing with a chuckle.

 The distance between the two facing camps is about thirty paces.

 Eventually, everyone readies their weapons or their bare hands, looks toward the enemy team, and prepares for battle...

"And so, the final match... begins!

 The referee raised the flag, and at the same time, the two teams moved.


 As soon as the match started, the battle was divided into three groups.

I'll take that swordsman's b*tc*.

I'll take that big one! Iris and Maifa, you take the other two!

 The first pairing was Adolf the Stiff and Rio.
 And the second pair...

"Then I'll take the little girl who likes to keep things clean... I can't wait to see how she screams. Mmm-hmm.

"Take it or leave it, you people are like objects! They're so obnoxious!

 "Dorothy, the queen, and Iris, the girl.
 The third and final pairing...

"I can't help it. I wanted to eat you this time, Rio, but I'll let Adolph's husband have the second chance. And this cheeky little guy looks good too.

...... Ew, I feel nauseous. ...... filth needs to be disinfected.

 "Jake the Wise Wolf" and Maifa.

 The three groups began to fight each other.
 The audience cheered loudly.
