'Alright, you guys!I'm joining you as your powerful helper from here on out!It doesn't matter if you're currently in last place or not. ...... We're going to win this thing!
I'm not sure what to make of that.
I don't know where he got it, but he and his old butler are wearing white headbands tied around their foreheads.
'Well, Ricardo. If you're lost, go to headquarters and have them call your guardian.'
No, you're going to the wrong place.
'...... Ricardo. General seating is that way.'
'Don't casually try to turn me away, tiger girl!And don't call me that, I'm a lord and I'm much better than you. ...... Point to the dignitary's seat, at least!Why are you in the general audience?
'Don't be greedy, Ricardo.
'It's because you haven't trained your tiger girl properly!
No, no, no. There's no one more well-behaved than Magda.
No matter where you put him, he'll always give you an interesting answer.
'What's all the fuss, Ricardo ......'.
Estella comes in, holding her head as if to show off her migraine.
As soon as she stands in front of Ricardo, she lets out a huge sigh.
'...... I believe that Yashiro deserves to be involved in more hardships and troublesome situations based on his daily conduct, and I hope that he will reflect on his actions a bit after being exposed to such situations...' ...'
Estella said whatever she wanted to say.
Any trouble that comes my way, I'll throw it right back at you.
I'm sure you'll understand.
'--Can you please not bother Yashiro?
'It seems you've got a much lower estimate than Oba, you bastard!
'Haha, of course. I'll declare it without fear of misunderstanding. Yashiro is more important than you.'
'You're so refreshingly annoying, aren't you?
Is Estella taking me on?
No, she's not.
She's simply shunting Ricardo to no end.
'Why do you want to mingle so badly in the first place?'To the residents' sports festival in District 42.
'There's already a lot of people who don't live in the forty-two wards participating!
'Don't be lonely, old man.'
'Wrong!It's not like that!
Nice try, Ricardo.
There's never been a time when someone who said 'it's not like that' in a situation like this was 'not like that'.
'Objectively speaking, I thought this team division was unfair. Only the white team is clearly inferior in strength. It's the Medras of District 41 and the Lords of District 35 who are creating that factor.
'Hmm. We've been given permission in advance to attend this day. Can you please stop accusing us unfairly?
Lucia stood in front of Ricardo, who was making a fuss.
...... What the hell are you doing, acting like it was a 'peaceful agreement'? You forced it on me.
You're right, Ricardo. Besides, isn't the white team inferior in terms of strength?
Medora stands behind Ricardo with her thick arms crossed.
Lucia in front and Medora behind.
It's the kind of situation that would make a normal person faint. It's like a 'pressure sandwich'.
'I didn't say that. Don't come out now. It'll complicate things, okay?
I don't know what Hammaro's reaction was, but he came over to me and cheerfully left.
...... They sometimes react as if they can hear the voices in people's minds.
'The white team has the most helpers from other districts. We have two head waiters attached to the lord and our own Magda. If we're lacking in strength, isn't it the blue group?
'No, Medora. I don't need any more muscle in my team.
The blue team, while not having any notable players, has a high percentage of muscularity due to the large number of hunting guilds and cowherds. They don't seem to be lacking in strength at a glance.
'I can understand why Estella wants to bring me into her army.
'I didn't say that, though. Not a word.'
'But you're out of luck. It was a normal girl from the white team who asked for my help in the competition. So I'll be the white team's helper!
I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one who can help you.
In the event that you have any questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at the following URL: .......I'm not sure what to say, but I'm going to say it.
'Ordinary girl!You've done a very good job indeed!You should be proud of yourself!
'Big brother, what's wrong?Something's coming at me really hard!
You've been missed, Loretta.
He must be really lonely. He's a ............ kid. You can do it in your own ward,.......
'Estella. Let's mix it up.
'Yashiro,......, are you sure?You're going to hate it the most. Isn't that a pain in the ass, Ricardo?
Well, it's definitely a pain in the ass. ......
'What? It's better to be friendly with the neighbors, after all, there's the matter of the wonderful Kiyan Avenue.
'Hmph. That's Oba. You understand diplomacy very well, don't you?
...... You don't talk about diplomacy. You selfish muscle.
'And besides. If you push too hard here, Gerrardsy might say, 'Count me in.
'Hmm, that sounds likely.
'...... It's not hard to imagine.'
'The lords of the 29th district,......, don't be lonely, grown-ups.'
No, Ricardo. You don't say that. Just take a look in the mirror.
'Anyway, if the rest of the team doesn't complain, we'll take them in.
'We don't mind. We don't mind. The kids get scared when he comes.'
'I have no objection either. As long as he doesn't cause any trouble for us.
The red team and the blue team have no complaints.
And what about the yellow group?
'What are you going to do, Paula? You're the team leader, you decide.'
'What?I'm the ............ one, then I guess it's okay.I don't think we'll lose with Medora-san around.'
'Well, you're right!I'm sure you'll be happy with the results.
So, since there were no objections from any of the teams, Ricardo joined the white team.
Magda quietly raises her hand.
'You're on our side, so there's no objection, tiger girl!
'...... You're too familiar, Ricardo.'
'Hey, Oba!You'll have to discipline your people, ......!
Oh, God. Shut up, shut up, shut up.
As I return to my position, I'm going to give Ricardo a very clear warning.
'Ricardo. I understand your eagerness, but there are a lot of little kids out there. Don't yell at them so much. This isn't a field day for you. If you're a helper, be a helper. If you can't do that, you're off the team. Because this time it's these guys from District 42 who are the stars.
He glared at Ricardo with kids and old people in the background.
I assure you that I won't use them as an excuse to set you up. If you don't like it, you can watch from the bleachers.
'...... d*mn. I know, I know. I just need more dominance to win. ......'
'Also, don't disobey the team leader. An organization without leadership can't win no matter how many talented people it gathers. Do you understand that, District Forty-One's general?'
'............ of course. Just for today, I'll follow the tiger girl's orders.''
It'll quiet him down a bit.
If you want in, you'll have to play by our rules. Don't be so arrogant as to say 'I'm in' or 'I'm helping'. Mind your own business.
That's what it means to be in someone else's place.
'...... Ricardo. Three times around 'one'.
'I'm not following that!
I don't think that's a problem.
...... Magda. You're a big man, aren't you?
'But a lord from another district just jumped in. There might be some people on the team who are a little deflated or don't like it.'
'Hmph. How can you say that with such a powerful helper in front of you?
'So, I'll, specially, since I can't help it, form an atmosphere where you can easily enter. You'll be glad you did.Be grateful. Worship me.'
'You're being patronizing!If you're going to do something, do it quickly.'
Doesn't this guy have the slightest sense of gratitude?
That's why nobles are like this.
'That's why Estella rejects me outright. ......'
'Oh, come on!It's not like you can reject me outright!I'm the one who turned down the offer!
This guy is really hurt by Estella's rejection.
You should've looked at yourself in the past. You should be grateful she's talking to you. You're so presumptuous.
'...... All right. I'll give you a little thanks, so do something, Oba.
Your thanks are flimsy.
Also, you're pretty flexible when it comes to Estella.
'I've noticed, Ricardo, that when you say that Estella hates you, she's pretty broken.
'...... Hmm. It seems that you are a little conscious of your own self.
'There's no such thing as an ordinary girl, a tiger girl!And what does it mean to be modest?
'...... different status'
'We're the same, me and Estella!
It seems that Magda and Loretta can see right through him.
He's trying his best to fit into Estella's childhood friend position. It's too late for that now.
'What is it?Is Ricardo-sama in love with Estella-san?
'Well, it's a little weird to say this to another lord, but ...... it's a little annoying.'
'Hey, crocodile!Watch your mouth!And Torbeck's wingman!I'm not in love with you!
'You're not very nice, are you, you newcomer?
'Ah, you're not very nice, newcomer.'
'So you're with Oba after all?
Ricardo playing with Umaro and Mo-Mat.
So, if you had been straightforward from the start, I would have prevented these conflicts from occurring. ......
I'm not sure what to do.
He didn't know what to do and ended up clinging to me.
'Do something about it.
I want you to change your attitude. ......
So, I'll use the magic words that Ricardo will accept at once.
You can't create discord in the White Team, and more importantly, Ricardo is valuable to you.
Oh, I'm such a good guy. If God is real, I'd like him to reward me with an assortment of tits. I don't care if it's an offering.
'Hey, guys. Listen up.'
Standing next to Ricardo, he declares to the members of the White Team, who raise their eyebrows at Ricardo's intrusion.
'From now on, Ricardo will be taking care of all of Medora's problems!
'Oh no!Who would do such a dangerous thing ......?
'Welcome to the White Team!
'Welcome, my lord!
'What the hell are you doing?Oh my god!That's why the Forty-Two Wards!
The white camp is in a welcoming mood at once.
It's a good thing I'm not the only one. ...... I guess they all knew that Medora would be forced to deal with the bastards.
I'm not sure what to say. I'm sure you'll be able to find a lot more information on this in the future. ......?
''Na?'' ...... Oba, you're .......''
'No?I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
I'm not sure what to say.Don't emphasize the word 'sama' in a disgusting way every time!I get chills when you call me 'sir'!
You're so selfish. All right, ...... you trash bug.'
'So don't patronize me!
After baring his fangs at me, he turned his gaze to the kids and stared at their frightened faces. ...... Ricardo let out a huge sigh.
I'm not sure what to say. My brother is a lord who is not afraid, so let's get along~''
'''.................. Yeah, well...'''
''You're reacting like adults!Who put you up to this?
'''......''' ''Magda's got the discipline of a team.
''Did you do this to me, tiger girl?
You'd think she'd have learned by now that that's what happens when you join us.
Ricardo must be a dominatrix. I'm sure he's happy to be played with. ...... Wow.
'Well, you're not as good as Medora, but you have some skills as a hunter, right?Then you'll have a use for it.''
'......Ricardo's hunting skills are lower than Use's.'
'............Hah~...... well, he can at least pick up trash.'
'Don't make a big fool of me!I can't lose to a representative of the forty-two districts!
Even though Use is representing his father, he has the ability to organize the 42nd district branch.
Ricardo, on the other hand, may look like a big shot, but he's just an amateur. He only goes out hunting a few times a month under Medora's protection.
His ability is also not that great.
'So, is your butler usable?He's dying, to put it mildly.
'He's not dying!He's been the steward in my family since my father's time!He's not of the same rank as Estella's head waiter.
'I don't care about your rank, I just want to know if you can move.
'I can move!Hey, Grandpa?
'Yes, sir. I'll make sure to show you my military prowess.
The butler's old man bowing condescendingly. Butler Jijii.
Well, he's still the head butler. Let's hope for the best.
'Well, I had high hopes for you because you're a new member, but you're dying.
'Hey, Rebekah. Don't be rude. You're holding on to the brink, you have to have a sense of respect.'
'Lady Sophie. Your words have pierced my Bertha.
The three rabbits at the malted rice factory looked at the old man and said such things.
No one denies that Rebekah said she was dying. ...... Is your factory okay?No, it's not for me to say.
'Whitehead's sisters. As I recall, I've heard they're difficult craftsmen. ......'
Ricardo plucked his chin and gazed intently at Rebeca as if observing her as the pretty captain.
From a distance, he looks completely suspicious.
Do you think I should report him?
...... Did the spring break?
'Oh, there's a bad smell in here!
I'm sure you'll be able to find a lot more information on this in the future. ......
I'm not sure what to say, but I'd like to know what you think.
And the person to whom the old man knelt and begged for a name was ...... Bertha.
I'm not sure what to say.But the picture is terrible!
'Big brother, you're too honest!
For the first time in his life, Bertha had no idea what he was talking about.
Bertha's cheeks flushed like a girl receiving a bouquet of flowers for the first time in her life, and she replied in a voice like a whispering insect.
'Ba, this is Bertha. ...... Bertha Oba.'
'Hey, wait, you old b*tc*!
What are you doing entering Oba's registry without permission?
I'll have you thrown into the magistrate's court.
'...... I see. The enemy is in our army!
'Don't stare at me like I'm crazy!Then do it!I'll give it to you so you can use up the rest of your life for the White Team!
'Stop it, both of you!Don't fight for me!
'It's your 'fault'!
'It's a love triangle for Bertha. ......!Bertha is a demonic woman!
'That's amazing, Rebekah!I can't believe Bertha is so popular!
'That's funny, I thought we were supposed to be rabbit people with good hearing, but I guess I missed it!I haven't been paying attention at all!
It was very, very annoying, so I pushed Bertha, along with Rebekah and Sophie, over to the old man.
'...... You used a stupid butler.'
'I've never seen an old man like that before. ...... I guess nothing good can come from associating with Oba.'
'It's not my fault!
It's a quality you've always had!
'd*mn it. Inez and Deborah are still more decent.
As I let out a sigh at the old man's boredom, I heard a creepy laugh from behind me.
It was Inez and Deborah.
I mean, Deborah, it's funny how you end with a 'nyu'.
'Hmm. You're doing a good job of praising me before prompting me, Mr. Kometsky.'
'Is 'still decent' a compliment?You guys are cheap.'
'We've had a 'bargain'!
'No, it's not a compliment, Deborah!
Yeah. I knew Deborah was a more disappointing girl than me.
'The butler of District 41 has no outstanding achievements, but due to his long history as a butler, he has a wealth of knowledge and experience and is recognized as a trustworthy person even in other districts.
'Well, the fact that he hasn't changed over the years gives a certain sense of security.
'However, although it is a characteristic of the 41st district, it tends to be a bit conservative and not very receptive to change.
'We've been on the defensive for a long time.
'That's why I was surprised to hear that the joint development with the 42nd district has changed so much.
'It was hard to move those guys.
'Knowing that Cometsky-sama was working behind the scenes, I can understand the great revolution in the conservative 41st district.
'...... Deborah. You've been biting me sweetly since a while ago, why?'
'No, I've been complimented twice, and my mouth is ...... puffy.'
No, so how did you end up with a 'nyu'? ...... That's enough, I don't mind.
In the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the site, please do not hesitate to contact us. Can you guys control it better?'
'What do I get in return?
Inez asked back with a very serious face.
I'm not sure if you're friendly or not, you know.
'What, do you want me to pat your head or something?
That's the least I can do, even if you wanted me to.
Well, you're not Magda, and you don't want that. ......
A small, short voice.
I thought I had heard wrong, so I turned my gaze to him. And then Inez was staring back at me without moving a muscle.
With a straight face.
'............ Do you want me to pet you?'
'Yes. I thought I said that.'
No embarrassment, no joking, just a straight face.
The usual cool beauty.
............ Do you not know what it means to stroke?
I'm not sure that's true.
You don't feel itchy when you are stroked, or you don't care?
If that's the case, you wouldn't be asking me to pet you. ...... What is it then?
It's a straight face. ......
What are you thinking, really?
...... I'm quite embarrassed to pat an older man on the head.
............ I've also seen Ricardo and others. ......... .........
'How can I help you?I'll be waiting for you.'
Are you feeling pretty excited?
'Well, I'll just ...... pet you.'
'Here you go.'
The silver-haired head was offered to me tastelessly.
It's small up close. It's the size of a child.
I ponder for a moment what to do, and then tap it lightly.
So, stroke it and slide it left and right.
Still no response, so I comb her hair with my fingers.
Suddenly, I'm pushed in the chest.
Inez turns away from me, her arms outstretched.
Inez says in a trembling voice, her hair disheveled from turning around so quickly.
'The first one was ...... enough,......, but...'
It seems that she was satisfied with the first poke.
But the additional stroking and the finger combing of her hair pushed her over the edge.
If you want to be patted, offer it at that time.
You're wasting my services. I'll charge you extra, you bastard!
'Wow, okay, I'll take care of the old man, responsibly!
Finally realizing what was going on, she reached for her messy hair and stroked it herself.
Perhaps it reminded him of the feeling he had just felt, or perhaps he stroked it himself and blushed himself.
'Let ...... me take ............ responsibility.'
He bowed deeply and strolled away.
I'll take ...... responsibility, that's too meaningful. ......
It's a good idea to take a look at the actual information on the web.
I'm sure Deborah will be jealous of this kind of development and say, "I'll do the same.
It's not too early for me!
I'm sure Deborah will be envious and ask for one too.
...... Stop it. You're making it sound like I did something erotic to Ines and then running away.
And you bit off more than you could chew.
'Oba ...... you, from another ward ......'.
'Hey, Ricardo. You should have at least one decent relationship.'
The only reason it looks like you've got your hands on her is because you're constantly updating your history of not having a girlfriend.
All boys do that at least!
If you're an involved protagonist, you're going to be luckier when you say 'oh dear'!
I, for example, am still ......
'...... Yashiro is a bit of an unconscious terrorist.
I'm not sure if you've ever heard of it, but I'm sure you have.
'Yashiro, you're very popular.
I'm not sure what to say.
That's too much.
That was just a light joke I made and Inez took it seriously.
It's not my fault. It's not my fault.
It's not my fault. ............ Oh, shit.
I don't like the way you're looking at me!
It's not my fault....... d*mn it, I thought you took Teresa to the first aid tent. It's ...... uncomfortable to be without your only ally.
'Ricardo, you mocked me in the first game and bent my leg in a weird way!Pfft!'
'Don't go anywhere without saying something ominous!
The air is bad, so we'll leave the white camp for a while.
Let's get some air, let's do that. Well, we'll be outside all the time.
As I was wandering alone away from the white camp, Lucia appeared in front of me.
She's standing there, waiting for me.
'Hey,' she said.
'You seem to be very good at taming the waiters of other districts.'
'Don't look at me, .......'
That wasn't my intention.
'If you've got a head waiter elsewhere that you're familiar with, don't mess with my Gilberta anymore. ...... Hmm. It's refreshing.
Lucia swears like a child and walks away with a surprisingly clean posture.
If he came all the way down here to say that,......, well, maybe Gilberta did.
This is a great way to make sure that you are getting the most out of your investment.
She was hiding behind Omero's big body, and only her head was sticking out.
Gilberta was staring at us intently.
When I beckoned to her, her antennae twitched, and she slithered toward me with quiet steps.
'How's the red team?
I waited for Gilberta to come in front of me and asked her that question.
'I don't see anything, no major problems. Except that Lucia-sama's lasciviousness is escalating.'
'Looks like the most troublesome problem is brewing.
You can't leave that out.
Or rather, that's the big problem, isn't it?
'Anyway, I'm relieved that you're doing well.
'You've been good to us, the team leaders of the red team, to Lucia-sama and me.'
'I see. That's good to hear.'
'I'm glad there's no conflict.
'I suppose it's also true that Delia and the others are accepting of Gilberta and Lucia.
'It's a result of your efforts to be accepted.
It's probably because he's a good mediator between Lucia and the others.
Delia's likes and dislikes are very clear.
The fact that Delia has a good impression of Lucia and naturally shows a respectful attitude like 'sama' is proof that Gilberta, who is by her side, is arranging for this to happen.
'Good job, Gilberta. That's great.
I'll give this kind of hard work my full praise.
'Do you admire me, my friend Yashiro?
'Of course he does. You are amazing, Gilberta.'
'I'm glad, I think. I'm .......'
Gilberta's antennae flickered.
It's a small price to pay if you're happy with this.
'So, can I count on you?Do I get a treat?
I thought, and Gilberta silently held out her head.
Her little head was pointed at me.
What an obvious prompt.
It's as easy to understand as Magda's.
'Hey, hey. As you expected.
He pats her lightly, and strokes her hair fluffily.
Her good mood is reflected in her sense of touch. It bounces happily, tinkling.
'Now I say, with all my heart, ...... 'Mwah'.
'...... When did Magda teach you that?
'I've been admiring it, secretly, for quite a while now.
I've been meaning to tell you if I ever get the chance.
What is it that you yearn for? ......
'...... is nice, after all. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do this, but I'm going to try.
You'll be able to't see your eyes through your bangs as you look down a little more than usual.
In the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can call us at our own web site.
You can find a lot of people who are looking for the best way to get the most out of their life.
'Well, you're sweet on your favorite head waiter, aren't you?
I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that he's gone out of his way to please Gilberta. You don't even want to ask me for a favor.
'So, I'm making it a little easier for you to see today, the sense of touch. Service.
'So that's why you had your antennae out.'
Normally, the little guntay ant's antennae are tucked away in her bangs.
Today I'm wearing a headband that lifts my bangs a little so I can see them better.
I suppose it's meant to somewhat restrain Lucia from getting too carried away with Hammaro. Otherwise, that pervert might become too attached to Hammaro.
'Then I'll thank Lucia a little bit.
'Your friend Yashiro?Why?
'Because I got to see your antennae. You're so cute and jumpy.'
'Oh, my God, ......?
'Ow!' Gilberta's eyes widen and she clenches her fists.
'I'm shaving!I'm shaving my bangs!
'Wait, wait, wait!
'All of it!
'Bangs are cute too, relax!
'I'll grow them out!I want bangs!
What is it?
Is the head waiter that unaccustomed to being praised?
Do you usually get nothing but abuse?
It's normal, but to affirm the efforts of a healthy girl who's daring to do something out of the ordinary!
It's normal for boys to try to be nice to Millie and Gilberta!
'Gilberta. I'm sure you've got a lot of questions, but
'Of course. That's what I thought, too, all along!
Gilberta's expression softened.
I see. Did you really care so much about being on a different team?
The fact that her face broke out like that proves that she wanted to, but couldn't, and was convinced that she shouldn't.
You don't have to worry about that.
Gilberta and I are friends.
Lucia aside, I'm trying to be nice to Gilberta.
So, you know, Gilberta.
'Next competition, why don't we form an alliance?
Gilberta's nostrils flared.
And, very unusually, the corners of Gilberta's mouth lifted in a pout.
'I'd like to hear more about ......, I think.
I'm going to talk to Gilberta, who is a good, honest girl.
I was hoping to bring Lucia into the fold if I could. However, I thought it would be difficult to attract Lucia, who was eager to become Hammaro's bride.
But if Gilberta would move, ...... it could be done.
I'll talk to Delia directly later.
I'll talk to Delia directly later. Okay, now we can increase our chances of winning the next competition.
If we ally with the red team, which is currently fighting for last place, the white team will not be strangled.
We'll crush the most troublesome blue team and the yellow team with Medora with the white-red alliance!
That's the plan.'
'Understood, I am. I'll send a message to Lucia. And I'll be sure to deliver the good news to my friend Yashiro.'
'Good. I'll see you then.
'Yes, sir, I will.'
Gilberta jumps and turns happily, and runs back to the red camp.
Good. Now we just need to set up the white team.
--and looking back...
'Does it matter who the head waiter is, sir?
Inez was looking at me with a cold stare.
...... Can you please stop framing me as if I'm groping every random person?
I've got a lot on my plate.
'I can shave my bangs, too.
'Cause that's not what I want.
I don't have a fetish for shaving, do I?
I don't have a forehead fetish either.
'Would you like me to shave the front of your hair down to the whiskers and put the back of your hair in the empty space?
'That's called a chonmage, which is an actual hairstyle in my hometown. ......'
I can't stand to see Ines in a chonmage.
So I'll do my best to stop her.
'Ines. I need your help in the next competition. Can you help me?'
'.................. head to ......'
'Can I just pat it?'
Inez lifted her hands and moved away from me, shielding her head with her arms.
I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one who's had it. It's ....... It's as if I was trying to molest her. ...... Don't react like that because it will send chills down your spine. Seriously.
'Hey, stroking is ...... no longer necessary for the foreseeable future, ...... that ...... I'm already full of it... ...'
Even though she was sulking, she still seemed to be embarrassed.
Then, what do you want to do with your head?
'Please let me stroke it.
'What about ......?'
'When I have successfully completed the job you want, please let me pet your head until I am satisfied.
...... Well, .................. why?
'We have a deal.'
'I'll take the flight.'
Before I knew it, Deborah was behind Inez.
'You're so secretive for nothing!
'I'll stroke her.
'I'll stroke it down.
The head waiter walks away, leaving behind a creepy smile.
...... That's funny.
I'm supposed to have brought those guys in for my own safety, but ............ I'm feeling lightly threatened. ......
The original, reliable girl.
She's a reliable girl who's saved me in many a pinch.
I feel at ease when I look at you.
'...... Magda will also pat, love, and pay homage to Yashiro according to his activities.
'............Paying homage doesn't do you any good, does it?
I'm starting to get the idea.
I guess they're just having fun, right?
For now, I'll think about the rest later, but I've decided to go talk to the people I need to win the next competition.
I guess this is called "escaping reality". Yeah.
