34-Love situation

"Mr. Zeke. I heard you!

 The next morning.
 While I was eating breakfast in the barracks mess hall, Seira spoke to me with a snort. There was a twinkling star of curiosity in her eyes.

What's wrong? What's up?
I heard that Eleanor confessed her love to you!
Oh. Oh, you mean that.
Why didn't you tell me about it earlier? Maybe I could have helped you!
Help you? ....... What were you going to do?
"Hmm. I love to talk about love. I get a lot of romantic advice from women in town.
Oh, really?
So I thought I could be a love cupid for the two of you.
But you've got quick ears. Did you get that from one of the guards who was there?
Yes, Mr. Pham told me.
Fam? I don't think she was there.
Uh-huh. Yes, she was.

 I'm sitting in the dining room, and she's peeking out from between my legs. If you weren't so brave, you would have flipped over.

Stop coming out of ...... strange places.
I'm like a shadow, watching you all the time. I even saw Eleanor telling you she was in love with you.

 I knew you'd be here.
 He's a tricky one.

"So what happened to you, Zeke? Did he accept your confession?

 Seira asks, leaning forward.

Didn't you ask Fam about that?
Yes. She told me to ask her directly. I couldn't sleep well last night because I was so curious about what happened!

 I looked at her and saw dark circles under her eyes.

You should have come and asked me then.
"No, sir. It was already late at night. It was already late at night. I couldn't disturb Mr. Zeke when he was resting.

 He seems to know what he's doing.
 After all, Seira is the most sensible person in the 5th squad.
 If this was Spinoza, he would have kicked down the door of my room to ask me about it, and Fam is out of the question when he's trespassing in my room so often.

"I didn't get the confession.
"What? Is that so?
Eleanor is a very beautiful and intelligent woman, isn't she? ...... Do you have a girlfriend already, Zeke?
No, not really.
Then why?
Because I'm not interested in relationships. I'm not interested in relationships right now, I'm more interested in protecting this city.
Yeah. ....... That's very professional.

 Seira muttered admiringly. And then a wry smile.

I feel like an idiot for being so happy and sad about other people's love stories.
"That's okay, isn't it? Everyone has their own values. I don't deny the people who dwell on their love life.

 The point is whether or not they think it's okay.

So you're not planning on dating anyone, are you, Zeke?
Not at the moment.
I'm relieved to hear that," said Pham.
"Why not?
Because if you do go out with someone, I'll have to watch you date and make out with them. I'm afraid I'm going to get into the NTR habit. I don't want my brain to be destroyed.
NTR is ....... Since when do I belong to you?

 In the first place, Femme and I are just colleagues.
 I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do it, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it. ...... But the thought of this guy watching me 24/7 is making me less and less interested in dating any particular person.

I mean, what about you guys like that?
Do you have a specific person in mind?

 Seyla and Fam looked at each other.
 Sayla said with a wry smile.

I love to listen to ...... other people's love stories, but when it comes to my own, I have nothing to talk about,.......

 It seems that you are not good at talking about your own love life.
 You can be a reliable cupid when it comes to other people's love affairs, but when it comes to your own love life, you may be the shy type.

I'm a shy person. I'm too shy to talk to the opposite s*x. Inevitably, I don't have much to do with the opposite s*x.

 This guy was a sociopath to begin with.

So everyone in the 5th squad is free of love affairs.
I haven't asked Mr. Spinoza yet, have I?

No, I don't think I need to ask him that.

 I muttered, and jerked my chin toward the entrance of the diner.
 Seira looks in the direction I'm pointing.
 There was Spinoza, who looked like a prisoner who had been sentenced to three hundred years in prison, reversing with his hands on the wall.

'Eeeeeeeeeee ......! Disgusting ......!
"Whoa! He threw up! He threw up!
That sucks! Of all places, don't do it in the cafeteria!

 The guards around her were shocked and shouted in anger.
 Incidentally, this kind of behavior was not seen only in the barracks. She was doing the same thing all over the city.

"Well... I'm sure Ms. Spinoza is one of us.
If you're worried, just look down and you'll see her.

 Seyla and Fam were relieved to see Spinoza.

I'm glad I'm with the 5th squad.

 I'm glad to be a part of the 5th squad," Seira muttered to herself.
 She seemed to have a strange sense of unity.
