ãWe waited a little over a minute for Shuya.
ãHe brought in a female player who was much taller than him.
ãShe appeared with a quizzical expression on her face, and when she saw my face, her expression broke into a smile, and I felt as if I knew who she was.
'Yes, stop. What's your player name?
'Netiquette-oh, ......, I knew it was you, Tohka.'
ãThe female player who looked like she was about to jump on me was, as expected, Toka-chan.
ãAs I thought this morning, she's really tall. You can change your avatar's height freely, but unless you're very familiar with VR, you can't keep your balance, so most players use their real height.
ãSo, if you are as tall as Toka, it will be a great feature.
ãEven so, she seems to have changed her facial features quite a bit, especially her blond hair and blue eyes in real life have been replaced with a distinctive black hair and red eyes.
ãHis race is probably ...... normal human race.
"Long black hair!
'Who's that?' 'She's tall!
'Oh, this is Toka, the girl I'll be playing with this afternoon. Isn't she cute?
'Hey, ......!ãI'm Toka. It's nice to meet you.
ãThe comments section was abuzz with the appearance of this innocent-looking girl.
ãSome of the comments seemed to know Toka-chan, which reminded me that she was also a distributor.
'So you're the one Tooka-chan was looking for.
ãShuya sat down on a chair in the teahouse, saying that she was glad that she was right.
ãI'm the one who's surprised that Shuya-san and Tohka-chan know each other.
'I hired him as a guide and escort. I'm embarrassed to admit that I'm not very good with directions. ......'
'I see. I wonder if this is what they call a chance meeting.
'I see. Anyway, I'm glad you were able to meet him.
ãHe said this while sighing, as if he was too relaxed.
ãHe was so relaxed that it was hard to believe that he had just stepped through a single dungeon, and compared to Toka-chan, who was showing some signs of fatigue, he was clearly relaxed.
'So, what do you want to do?ãI've been told that I'll be following you to Dualis.
'If it's okay with you, I'd like you to come with me. ......'
ãI'm not going to grab the hem of your dress and ...... like I did in the past because of the height difference, but I'm going to modestly ask you to come with me, Toka-chan.
ãI have no reason to refuse, so I gladly agreed.
'I'm good, okay?
'Well, that's settled then. I guess that's all I have to do.
ãShuya-san stood up and stretched, though he hadn't had much rest.
ãWaving his hand lightly behind his back as he walked toward the forest again, Mr. Shuya stopped as if he had thought of something, turned around and left a word.
'Ah, yes, Sukuna-chan. Come to the Round Table headquarters when you feel like it. The next time we meet, I'll welcome you with open arms.
'Clan "Knights of the Round Table" is an attack clan that only swordsman players can join. Once a month, the clan holds a swap battle, and the player with the highest winning percentage is chosen as the Round Table. There are eleven members in the clan, excluding the leader, and Shuya is the third best player.
ãOn the way back to Dualis, I heard from Toka-chan what Shuya-san meant by 'round table'.
'Hmm ......, no wonder you could afford it. But the original Knights of the Round Table had more than just swordsmen, didn't they?
'Haha, I can only say that's the way it is. What's important is the atmosphere.
ãI asked him about something I was curious about, but since I wasn't familiar with the original story of the Knights of the Round Table, I decided not to poke around in the bushes.
'But from what I've heard, you seem to be a pretty famous player.
'Oh, that's not true. He's definitely a strong player, but he's not very well known because he's always traveling around aimlessly.
'Come to think of it, he was in Dualis when I first met him. So that's why my listeners didn't know him.
I'm sorry. ...... Ah, Sister Suk, in the shade of the rock in front of you on the right.'
'Hey. It's not like this,.......
ãAfter confirming the rock Toka-chan was pointing at, I threw the weight I had grown accustomed to using high into the sky.
ãI'm not sure if this is a good idea, but it's a good idea.ãYou can find a lot more information on the web.
'Your throwing has been undiminished for a long time, hasn't it, sister?
'Is that so?
'Yes, it's getting better and better, it's just like you!
ãIn the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at the web site.
ãI think it's not extremely difficult to hit a target that doesn't move, despite what Toka-chan says.
ãSince the goal is there, you just need to throw the ball in such a way that it hits the target, no matter how it looks.
ãIt doesn't matter if the trajectory is straight or curved, the time until impact will change.
'I think your way of thinking is always wrong.
'Well, you don't have to say it with such a straight face. ......'
"No, that's not right.
"No, that's not right.
"It's not wrong, but I can't practice it.
"You're talking as if the event of being right comes first, you demon girl.
ãThis is a topic that Toka-chan started, but unexpectedly, accusations are flying in from all directions.
I'm not sure if you'll be able to find the right one for you.
I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.
ãThat's not true!ãI'm not sure what to do.
ãI'm not sure what to make of it.
I'm sure you'll be able to find something that will help you out.
I've seen her shoot 10 consecutive basketballs from the opposite goal.
"Common in transdimensional basketball.
"Is that a real demon?
'Even in VR it's impossible.
ãI tried my best to explain myself, but my excuse was killed by an unexpected betrayal.
ãThe comments from my listeners stung me.
ãBy the way, Toka-chan told me a story when she was in the first year of junior high school, when Rin-chan told her that she had built a private gym to solve her lack of exercise.
ãI think she gave up exercising after three days, and the gym was opened to the public after a while.
'Now, now, let's get back on track...'
'Mm-hmm, that's true, too.
ãIt was a blatant change of subject, but Toka-chan followed me without poking me any further.
ãWe're halfway to Dualis, and I haven't worn myself out to this point.
ãThe reason why I've been able to proceed more steadily than before is mainly because of Toka-chan's skill structure.
'By the way, Toka-chan's range is very wide, isn't it?
I'm sure you'll be able to find a lot of people who'll be able to help you out.
ãI'm sure you'll be able to find something that will help you out.
ãI haven't heard the details yet, but I've heard that she basically has a healer-type skill set.
ãIn addition to that, he has an enemy spotting skill, which he uses for support.
ãUnlike me, who only uses her skills when necessary, Toka-chan is always playing the role of a spotter, so there must be a big difference in their skill levels.
ãIn this field, where most of the enemies were hiding, there were many scenes where Toka-chan found the enemies much faster than I could spot them.
'But in the end, I can't do anything on my own.
ãDespite her words, Toka-chan's powerful eyes showed no trace of humility.
ãConfidence as a supporter. Or fun. Even though her level is not high yet, you can feel her strong will that she has no regrets about her play style.
ãSeeing her like this, I felt a little something for her, as I only knew her as a weak and pampered little girl.
ãAs I was walking to the Dualis, I heard an electronic beeping sound and saw a message announcing an incoming mail.
ãThe sender was "Kittenmaru". I guess that's what this is all about.
'Yes, what is it?
'It's afternoon, but I've got one more thing to do before I go exploring with you. Do you mind if I join you?'
'Thank you. I'm sure you won't be bored.
ãWith Toka-chan's permission, I quickly replied to Kittenmaru's e-mail.
ãI thought it would be tomorrow or later, but he really works fast.
ãOn the road to Dualis.
ãAs if to quell the uncontrollable pounding in my heart, I bludgeoned the monster with 30% more power.
