After the raging ball rolling was over, I collapsed to the ground, exhausted.
'I ...... can't ............ do it anymore.
'Thank God. You seem to be well enough to joke about it.
Can't you see the scars on my body?
I've got wounds all over my body from a desperate attempt to stop a runaway monkey woman.
Look at this, a scratch. It's a painful, lightly peeling skin. See?
Here, here, here's a little cut. Ugh, look, look, a long skin peel.
I'm a wreck, man, my body. Yeah.
Hmm. ...... Good. You're not hurt much.'
Estella takes a closer look at my body and says something selfish.
You idiot. There's no such thing as too much or too little pain. What hurts is pain.
Besides, it's not just the body that hurts. It's the mind too.
...... d*mn it. Mauru and Grandma Mumm have caused me to do two excessively good deeds ...... and I'm going to ...... gag ...... and twist my intestines ......!
'I want to ...... work and do evil ......!
'Stop talking nonsense and get out of here. The next competition is about to start.'
Estella looks down at me as I fall and spouts a bunch of nonsensical lines.
What did you come to me for?Worried about my wounded fall, 'Oh no, you're bleeding!But I'm fine. Just lick it off and it'll heal!Lick it off! Isn't that what it's for?
...... Oh, yeah. You've come to pressure me to stop squeezing Barbara's tits, haven't you?
'You're the titty patrol, .......'
'Can you please not put me on the disgraceful team?...... at all.'
He crouched down in front of me with a look of disgust on his face, and pulled my arm up.
'Come on. Don't stay up all night. I'm going to take you to the first aid tent, and you're going to get some medical attention.
With that, he firmly supports my body with his small body.
Even though there is a certain height difference between us, I feel very stable. I don't feel uneasy at all.
What? Why?You're not that strong, are you?
'You know, there are certain points you have to pay attention to. The human body is surprisingly simple, so if you keep those points in mind, you can support the human body regardless of your height difference or strength.
'You're taking this from Natalia?
'It's a teaching. Along with self-defense, she also taught me how to save lives.'
To be able to eliminate and save.
Whether the lord himself needs to do it or not is another story.
''And?What if we get into trouble while saving lives?
'It's possible to lock them up from this state, you know?Would you like to try it?'
'...... I'll stop.
I can't take any more injuries.
'There!Stop flirting and get out of here!The back of the room is blocked and we're all staring at you!
'Hey, I'm not flirting with you!Don't say anything funny, Natalia!
Estella's body temperature rose by about two degrees as Natalia stood at the entrance gate and chided her.
And then she muttered, 'Oh my God,......,' and dragged me along more forcefully than before. ...... Ouch, ouch, ouch. You're injured!
This is a great way to make sure you are getting the most out of your vacation.
Medora, one of the members of the patrol, said, 'I'm going to take my darling back to the first aid tent, or even to my room, and take good care of her! It's a good idea to have a good idea of what's going on in your life. ...... You can count on the Four Heavenly Kings.
You'll be able to find a lot more than just a few of them on the web.
Estella says, 'Don't worry. Estella said in a loud voice, 'Don't worry, it's not a serious injury. It's not up to you to decide, though. ...... I mean, you just confirmed my injury a while ago, didn't you?You can't just decide before you've checked.
So, Estella is supporting me.
Maybe she just wants to show off the lifesaving skills she learned.
'Yashiro, how are your legs?'
'As you can see, they're nice and long.'
'Okay, all clear. ...... Oh, there's an anomaly, but an anomaly is no anomaly.'
What's your explanation?
What's wrong with me?
'You're reckless, as usual.
'Tell that to Mokoka. ...... He's got a messed up plan.'
'Wouldn't you have made a similar plan?
'If it were me, I would have made a plan that would have saved me a lot of trouble.
'Haha, I bet.
Estella looked relaxed as she crossed the truck and reached the first aid tent.
She must have been carrying a lot of responsibility, being the head of the competition committee and the team leader.
Maybe he needs more time to be a player and a human being like this.
'Aren't you straining yourself?
'Haha. That's not possible in such an easy competition.
But behind the scenes, you're giving a lot of consideration to all the parties involved.
Don't get used to it, you'll get overwhelmed.
I don't want to sound like such a good person, though.
But, ...... yeah. This kind of casual time helps me a lot.
'No~ I'm embarrassed~, "Being with Yashiro-kun is somehow soothing~"'
'This is a big problem. If there's a medicine for your ears, you should get it first.
He said sarcastically and shook his shoulder.
Don't shake, don't shake. I'll shake mine.
'If you're going to shake me, you might as well shake my tits .......'
'The first aid tent has plenty of salve, so if you get a couple more puncture wounds, you'll be fine. ......'
'It's not enough to just heal~, the human body. Remember that.
We arrived at the tent and were seated on some random chairs.
Just the fact that there is a roof makes the sunlight feel much softer. I can't describe it well, but it's clearly a different atmosphere from the ground. There's something special about a place like this, like when you're observing a physical education class, or when you're on the broadcasting committee and you're separated from the other students.
Teresa came running up to me with her hands in the air.
A big smile on her face. It was as if the spring of the world had come.
'Oh, my God, I've got a baby!
'See, there it is.
I'm going to give Estella, who doesn't know what's going on, an answer that she'll understand at a glance.
'Mom, here!Look here!I scraped it!
'Yes, yes. Barbara. Let's put some medicine on it.'
Barbara is spoiling Wuerer. 'Yes who?
'You know, the idiot Barbara.'
'Onyesha, aho, chiuyo?
Oh, yeah, Teresa.
It's the same thing, isn't it?
'I see. So that's how you got Barbara.'
'It wasn't a ruse I devised. It was Grandma Mum who was behind it.'
'I see. So that's why you did the good deed by rolling up your sleeves again.'
'Ugh!My bowels are twisted. ......!Regina, give me a pill that makes me feel like an obscenity ......!
Maybe that'll make it zero. ......!
'Oh my god, no. You can't do that. You can't say that in front of a little girl.'
'Estella?What's that 'Hanny' thing coming out?
'What should I do, Yashiro?I'm scared!
It's a good idea to have a little bit of time to think about what you want to do and how you want to do it. I'm not sure what to say. ...... Or perhaps I should say that I'm forced to smile. The edge of the mouth is twitching.
Don't look at me with a face like you're about to cry,............. I can't help it.
'What is it, Mr. Yashiro?'
'The next race has no limit on the number of people on any team, it's for everyone to enjoy. Why don't you join us for a bit?''
'Is that so?But for me, exercise is .......'
'I heard that the leftover bread from the bread-eating contest is served to the contestants.
'That's right. It might be a good idea to participate a little. It's a good opportunity.
Bertina hurriedly walked towards the waiting line.
As soon as Bertina left, the neat pharmacist turned into a cozy pharmacist.
'Thank you so much for your help~...... really appreciate it, guys~'
I'm not sure how nervous I was, Regina.
'My shin is worn out from sitting on it so much, I think ...... I can't get married anymore ......'.
'I'm surprised you're willing to go.
And it's not the scar on the nape of the neck that makes it impossible to get married.
You're saying I can't because I have a scar on my shin?You're a jerk.
'Oh, hero!What's with the ......, are you hurt?'
'What, your brain memory is only about 2 bits?
I'm sure you'll be happy to know that even the smallest SD cards sold at electronics stores have a capacity of 8MB.
As I recall, 8 bits = 1B (byte), 1024 times 1B is 1KB, and 1024 times that is 1MB, so it is safe to say that you can hardly store anything.
I'm sure that's the extent of Barbara's memory,......, right?
'Hero!I'll introduce you!This is my mom!
I know her!I've known her longer than you!
What, does this guy seriously have no memory?
'I'm living life to the fullest right now'?You're a jerk.
'Anyway, Barbara. What about the next competition?
'The 'promise' you made earlier, was it to the previous competition?
The 'promise' Barbaras is talking about is 'you will do as I say'.
'Ah. You can do whatever you want.
'Then I'll stay here and watch Teresa and you!
It's family time!--I know I look like I'm going to be there, but my real family, Yap Lock, Tot and Cheryl, will be there.
You can do whatever you want, but...
'Don't take Wuerer away from Tot and Cheryl, okay?
'Of course not!Aashi is the eldest!
Ugh, she's so bossy!
She's already a member of the family, and she thinks she's in a good position!
'Then do as you please.
'Oh!Thanks a lot!
I didn't know Barbara could say thank you so honestly.
He's the kind of guy who doesn't give a d*mn about other people's cares and takes it for granted when they care for him. ......
The effect of your mother is quite powerful.
'Teresa, let's cheer together!
'Hmm. ............ Oh yeah, good luck.'
The Lord of Smiles did not miss the momentary shadow of the innocent girl.
He gulped and - I don't know what he was trying to say - he gave me a look.
The fact that our gazes coincided just happened to coincide with the timing when I turned my head towards him, and there was no deeper meaning to it.
'Hmm. Did you just think the same thing as me?'
'Well, I don't know what you're talking about.
'...... You're Yashiro after all, aren't you?
I don't know who else I can see.
I'm not sure what you're talking about. ...... I don't like it. I'm not a big brother!I'm not sure if you've seen this before, but I'm sure you have.Don't push me!
A group of players are leaving the gate and moving into the truck.
I'd better get myself patched up and join them.
............ No, this next competition is more of a recreational one, but you do get points for it.
This is the reason why the white team, which is still in last place, has to earn points steadily in these small areas. For my own safety!To protect myself from Medora and the others who were forced to leave!That's it!
As Regina was applying the disinfectant, Mokoka came staggering in. He was dragging his feet.
'Hey. What's wrong with your leg?
'Are you sure it's from the race?
Mokoka's antennae flickered, and he glared at his leg in disgust.
'Earlier, when I was turning the big ball, ......'
'Oh,......, that was a pretty rough move,......, and that's what set you back, right?'
'No, that's not it, my Lord of Smiles. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do this, but I'm sure I'm going to be able to do it. ...... I had a slight discomfort there, but I thought I could handle it, so I ran and it was fine.
In the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the site, please contact us at .......
I'm not sure what to make of that.
The secretion that occurs in the body is not something that can be discovered by chance.
'And when you reach the goal, you have to step on it with all your might. ......'
'And then you gave it the final push,......, didn't you?
'I'm telling you, it's not like that.
'......Yashiro. Mokoka is cold to me .......'
Don't be discouraged, my friend.
He's been like this from the start.
'So, I jumped as hard as I could, and when I landed ...... on my feet, I said, "Gosh! I'm not sure what to do. ............
'What should I do ......? I can't find any words to say to her. ......'
What are you doing now?
...... Look around you, they're all like that, aren't they?
I'm sure you're not the only one who's had a sprained ankle.
'Estella. For a second there, I thought I heard you say something you really meant.'
You couldn't hide it. Oh, I see.
'This means I won't be able to participate in the next competition. ......'
'Well, the next competition will be like a game involving guests and spectators. Don't worry about it.
'You'll still get points, though!The ...... general is expecting me to do it.
Certainly, Mahrul will be pleased if Mokokka plays a big part.
But more than that--'
'Of course he'll be happier if you're healthy. Just get it taken care of and join us again when you're feeling better.'
You beastmen have a crappy resilience anyway.
I'm beginning to think that these people are actually the inhabitants of a gag manga.
I'd like to try dropping a Umaro from about 100 meters in the air. I'm sure it would make a funny human-shaped hole in the ground.
'Does it make the general happy that I'm doing well, ......?'
'Does the Lord of Smiles think so too?'
'Yes, he does. I'm surprised that Yashiro said something unusually sane, but I think he's right.
That's why Estella ...... is leaking her true feelings that she doesn't need to say.
'Then I'll take care of it and make it go away as soon as possible!
'In that case, I'll apply an ointment that's good for sprains and makes you feel a little bit obscene.
'Thank you, Master!
'Hey, someone~. Bertina, go call her back for a minute~'
'...... You're the one who set this up. Be patient.
Regina is really a helpless guy. ...... She's been holding back for a few minutes and now she's venting it all out here.
Come on, Wueller. Get Teresa someplace safe.
Hmm?You're a monkey, aren't you?
'Hey, aphids!How are you?
'How're you doing?
'Both of you are injured, that's why you're in the first-aid tent.
Are you stupid, these guys?
Yeah, I thought they were idiots. I forgot.
As soon as she recognized Mokoka, Barbara's sweet face returned to its original stern expression.
She says to Mokoka in an agitated tone.
'I've done everything you asked me to do, every single time, and I've done it perfectly!
And he wants to be proud in front of his sister and his mother that he won because of it.
...... You're such a little thing, you know that?
It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're doing.
'Oh!That was quite a show.
He smiles a piercing smile and thrusts his thumb at her.
'I never imagined you'd have that much power!To be honest, I was burning up when I ran with you!
'Oh ............ oh ......, right?
In the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at our own web site.
You'll be able to find a lot more information on the web at .......
'Whoa!What?You're going to do it?
Barbara bites down, rolling up her arms with some happiness.
'Yeah, that's what I've been waiting for,' he said.
But that look doesn't last long.
'But it's a kind of talent to be able to go that far. I'd like to learn from you, too.
I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
Barbara is like a polar bear in a menagerie.
'When he's healed, let's team up again!If you know how to handle it, there aren't many girls as reliable as you!
'Oh,...... no,...... no,............ maaaahhh!
I'm not sure where to put this, but I'm not sure where to put this," Barbara said, scratching her head.
'What the hell is wrong with you?You're totally different from before!Don't compliment me!You're itchy and uncomfortable!
'...... Are you sick?
'There are no fleas on Aashi!
In the event that you've got a lot of time and energy, you'll be able to use it to your advantage.
'Onesha, are you scared?Gooey, wooey?'
'It's not like that, Teresa-chan. I'm fine.'
Gently hugging Teresa, who was worried about her sister, Wuerer whispered to Teresa.
'Your sister is embarrassed, you know. Your new friend is praising you.
'Nahhhh!That's not true, Ka-chan!Aashi is not embarrassed. ......!
I'll tell you the answer to Barbara, who can't figure out what that itch is, because she can't help it.
''Didn't Jeannette tell you?'It tickles me when people praise me.'
'...... Ah. Uh, yeah. ......'
'That's the thing.'
When I point at Barbara with my chin, she opens her hands and stares at me.
Your body. And the mysterious emotions within it.
'...... This tickles me ............'.
Then you close your open hands and arms and hug yourself.
He smiles with a loose mouth, as if he is not strong enough.
I'm not sure what to do, but ............ I like this!
You can find a lot of people who are looking for the best way to get the most out of their life.
'Alright, Mokoka!From now on, Aashi and I are best friends!You're the only comrade Aashi has ever recognized!
Apparently, Delia was not included in the comrade category because she was of higher rank.
And Mokouka, receiving such an invitation...
'Hmm. I'll think about it.'
'Why don't you answer me now?
'I'll send it to you in writing later.
'What, what?There's a chance you'll say no?No, you're not!That's fine!You're Aashi's best friend!You're Aashi's best friend!
Seeing Barbara in a panic, Mokoka blurts out as if she can't stand it.
Then, after shaking her shoulders to the fullest, she smiles carefree.
'If you ask me that much, I can't refuse, can I? It's what I want, Barbara!
It's a great way to make sure you're getting the most out of your vacation. ...... What's the last one?I'm not sure what to say.I love that you have animal features!I want to do that too!
'Mokoka, you've turned.
'Oh... Inez and the others must have told you something.
While there are many people who are devoted to going their own way and making themselves stand out, the servants are more concerned with controlling the space.
They stand up for their masters, stay in the shadows, and yet involve everyone around them in the flow they envision.
And it is this kind of perfection and beauty that they love.
'Mokoka. What did Inez and the others say to you?'
'Hmm?Oh, that's right. About the attitude of a waiter, how a waiter should be, basic things like that, and--'
And then Mokoka looks at me.
'I'm saying that the Lord will be very happy if you become a waiter who can sell his debt to Yashippi.
What are they trying to get me to do by ingratiating myself with ...... them?
I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but I'm sure you're aware of it.
Don't think it's that easy to sell a favor.
Also, don't get your hopes up and buy into things.
'There's a bit of a buzz about Natalia Owen among the waiters right now.
'Yes, sir!Inez and Deborah are talking about her, too.
Estella rolls her eyes when she finds out that her head waiter is being talked about by Inez and the others.
'You mean she was talked about as a beautiful waiter in BU?
'Natalia Owen is a favorite of the waitresses, you know. Because--'
At this point, Mokoka pointed at Estella and said in a loud voice.
'Because Natalia Owen has always been behind the great strides of the Lord of Smiles!
And then she points her finger at Estella.
'It's widely rumored that she was close to Yashippi and contributed to the development of the Forty-two districts.
--That's what they say.
It's as if I'm the one who developed the Forty-two Wards. ......
Stop it. Don't drag me out into the open.
'Are you saying that Natalia is working for me to help Estella?
'No, that's not what I'm saying. ......'
I'm not helping Estella because of Natalia. Well, I guess we're close, but, 'Alright, Natalia. I'll help your master for you. I don't even think about it. ............ I'm not trying to help you!I'm using you!I'm not sure what to do.
'No, that's a misunderstanding!That's a very disgraceful misunderstanding!I'm not ...... intimate or ......!
Don't be hasty, Estella.
I'm in no hurry, Estella. ...... I'll be even more embarrassed.
'And I'm not even talking about Yashippi. ......'
What, ...... am I famous?
It's really impossible.
So, the reason why the big-boobed demon god is so kind to the lord with such flat and disappointing boobs must be due to the boob power of Natalia Owen, the head waiter! That's what I'm talking about.
'Alright, can you list the nobles who have mentioned that rumor at least once?I'll sanction them one by one!That's right, not a single one of you will be spared!
They say that rumors, big or small, spread like wildfire. ...... I hear there's a hell of a rumor going around.
It's as if I'm falling for Natalia's tits,......, and I've never been touched!
'So people you know are saying such things. ...... Hmm, I'll definitely make a list.
It is said that rumors about me being in the dark and being close to Estella are only whispered among people who know each other.
I don't like rumors. You've got to put a stop to it somewhere.
If this gets out and my name gets out, you never know what kind of trouble you might get into.
'Also, Mokoka. I've been meaning to tell you that ............ 'Lord of Smiles', don't.'
'Hmm?Why not?You're looking good, right?
'Yeah, ...... whatever, just stop ...... for now.'
'I'll consider it, sir!
Mokoka's reply is a bit muddled.
He looks like a nobleman's waiter.
'Oh, Yashiro!It's about to start.'
Estella sees the truck and rushes me.
The treatment is already finished.
I was actually thinking of observing, but ...... I guess I'll just go.
'We'll go with you.
'Oh. I thought the rules said we could jump in.
'Of course. The whole point of this competition is to get everyone excited!
Estella ran out of the first aid tent before me and I followed her to the waiting line.
Now, let's get some points!
Before leaving the first aid tent, I glanced at Teresa and said, ......
Well, maybe when I get a chance.
'Okay, players, please take your positions.
When I looked at the truck at the sound of the waiter's voice, I saw a large number of players from each team lined up in a row. It was a huge gathering that could be called a full mobilization.
Even though it was such a large number of people, participation was in order.
The competition was about to begin.
'Race to the customer,' take your positions, and voila--'
The high-pitched sound of bells rang out as the first runners from each team rushed out.
