Chapter 156: I like…
August 7 .
When Johan was watching the excitement of Roland’s Ultra Mask collaboration with a warm eye from a step back.
A huge abandoned hospital has appeared in the corner of Amaterasu City on the fourth level.
This is a simple map specially prepared by the management as a field for [Haunted House], which was planned mainly by elementary school students who play GOO.
Simple… The quality is as good as the real thing.
If it was not daytime, the school children would not be able to wander around inside alone, even if they were on the planning side.
“So, have you found a partner for the tag team tournament, Ogre?”
On the roof of an abandoned hospital.
Leaning against the rusted railing, looking down at the street, Zoma muttered to himself.
Auga, who had been crouching down and drinking a can of juice, raised his eyebrows at the words and said in an irritated tone.
“What the hell does it matter? I mean, do you even know what you’re doing?”
“Oh, yeah. So, who are you?”
“It’s a trade secret. Wouldn’t be funny if I told you, would it?”
“Oh, man. I mean, you just declared war on me. But you’re still going to participate in the preparations.”
“Yeah. School kids don’t get to do stuff like this in school. I thought it’d be a good memory.”
Zoma said with a fresh smile.
Three days ago, I received a declaration of war from Handa Souma, a.k.a. Zoma, who appeared on the riverbed.
He had been thinking about it vaguely ever since he lost the Duel with Zoma that day, but he still hadn’t decided on a partner.
(Memories. You don’t have to… Then you don’t have to fight with me… It’s fine as long as we have a good time at the festival…)
“But these freebies, they’re delicious!”
Whether he knows it or not, he’s still a little confused…
GOO has been involved in many tie-ups not only with anime and game companies, but also with other companies in general.
For example, as part of the promotion of a new product, a free copy of the juice is distributed with a perfect reproduction of the taste and appearance.
If they drink it and like it, they’ll buy it in real life. That’s the idea.
“What’s it called… “Oh, a fortune cola. I drank up all of it and a fortune came out!”
“Oh, this is awesome. Whoever thought of that must be a genius. What? There’s a window right in front of me… What? Good luck. Your victory is assured. Oh, man. What are you going to do, oga?”
Zoma proudly shows off the window marked “Great Luck” to Oga.
Oga chugs the fortune cola that he was sipping.
“Whoo-hoo… All right, I’m here. Here we go.
Auga also stares at the result of his fortune-telling.
“”Wicked. You’ll have to make a big decision and it will end badly.’… You’re using loose language, but the sense of hopelessness is really strong…”
Auger drops his shoulders in disappointment.
“Don’t be so downhearted, Oga. There’s a trick to fortune telling. If you get a bad result, you can negate it by wrapping a piece of paper around a tree in the shrine.
“No, it’s not paper. It’s not paper!”
“Haa… Ha-ha-ha. Hey, Auger. About your partner… Wouldn’t you like Ms. Mei?
“Yeah. I heard you got that [EX Skill] you’ve been talking about, right?”
“Oh. I guess.”
“It’s amazing. You started way after us. You guys got past them so fast. Yeah, that’s why!”
Zouma looks convinced, and Oga asks him.
“No, I just thought maybe you think it doesn’t matter if you win against someone stronger than you. I don’t care. I don’t care if he partners with a superior fighter.
He said coolly, then said, “I don’t want to be Johan…” Zoma laughs.
But Auger shook his head.
“The reason I didn’t invite Mei is because he’s the leader of this [haunted house] project.”
The players of GOO elementary school students got together to plan a [haunted house], and the central figure is actually Mei.
Since many of the players who gathered had started after the Killing Festival, Mei, who was one of the oldest among them, was chosen as the representative of the group.
I think it’s because I belonged to the most powerful guild. The Dragon’s Chicks are behind me.
That’s reassuring for players who don’t have the connections and connections yet.
“He’s working too hard. I can’t interrupt him with a personal, stupid fight.”
“That’s true, too.”
Zoma smiles at him and says, “Don’t be cute.” and punches him lightly in the shoulder. And just when I was getting ready to go back to work…
“Oh, my God! There you are!”
The door to the rooftop was opened with a bang and May was standing there with her arms crossed, a clearly irritated look on her face.
And they’re coming right at us.
“Oh, I’m sorry, Mr. Mei. I’ve been giving Mr. Ogre advice about his love life. And we talked about the tag team tournament.”
I’m not sure what he’s talking about.
“Hmm, hmm? Well, if that’s the way it is. So, what happened?”
On the other hand, Mei seemed to be curious about the contents.
“Well, it’s not every day I get a chance like this, so we agreed that I’d ask out the girl I like.”
“He’s blabbing, blabbing, blabbing, blabbing, blabbing, blabbing, blabbing, blabbing, blabbing, blabbing…”
He’s grabbing Zoma’s flanks. Stop it!” Zouma is running away while laughing and Oga is chasing after him, while Mei is lying on the ground with her face bright red.
“You like… “Someone you like… Hmm.”
Apparently, he didn’t hear the part where he said I don’t think he heard that part.
Pancho, who has been lying down a little ways away from Auga and the others, gets up with a start.
Oh, there you are.
Pancho ignores Mei’s words and heads straight for the direction of Auger. Then, he makes a Unique Skill [Kiai Ball] appear in his right hand, and moves instantly to the back of Auger.
He grabs Auga by the left shoulder and puts a [kiai-dama] close to his neck from behind.
“What the… What are you doing, Pancho?
“Don’t move. Move and I’ll kill you.
“Ask me to be your partner or I’ll kill you. If you speak up, I’ll kill you. Raise your right hand for ‘yes’ and your left for ‘no’, or I will kill you. If you say ‘no’ to anything I say, I’ll kill you. If you don’t answer, I’ll kill you.”
“I’m practically free except for my right hand?
Suddenly, a friend makes a threat to Ooga.
“Stop it, Pancho! You’ll get Owga in trouble!”
An angry May pulls Pancho off of Auger.
Ha-ha-ha, I’m kidding. Hey, oga?”
“Are you kidding? You’re kidding me, he looked really deadly!”
The amount of sweat running down my back proved that the killing intent I felt earlier was real.
“Oh, well. So, who are you gonna ask out?”
No, no, no, no! You’re scaring me with your eyes.”
Pancho is out of control today. That’s how he feels… and he looks to May for help.
“Who are you asking out?”
“Is something scary over here, too?
I got a weird vibe from May.
Who would he ask to be his partner? He was in a hurry, but right now he just wanted to get out of here.
“In case you haven’t heard, the deadline for submissions is tomorrow.
Zouma, who’s probably enjoying this situation, says so, and Mei and Pancho look even more desperate. Who are you going to invite? They’re making a fuss.
(Is that guy a demon? )
And Oga looks at Zoma with a bitter look in his eyes. But that won’t make things any better.
It’s either May or Pancho. We’ll have to go with one of them.
But when Zoma says, “I’ll ask the girl I like…” Zoma’s words mean something different than just entering a tag team tournament together.
It takes on a different, more special meaning.
(Please. Somebody… Somebody help me.)
Oga only wished for the purest of intentions.
“Ha-ha-ha! I thought you called me!”
A strangely confident laugh came from the sky, and a blonde haired boy waved from the sky with his arms crossed.
It was a cross.
He must have been flying with his unique equipment. Cross jumped from a great height and landed on the rooftop, the ground cracked and collapsed.
The four of them looked down and saw Cross on the floor below with his head sticking out of the rubble and his eyes rolling back and forth.
Is he okay?
Auga mutters worriedly. By the way, it was not Cross’s body that he was worried about, but his head.
Pancho grabs Auga’s shoulder as he casually and unobtrusively tries to leave.
Whoa. Where are you going, Ogre?
“I’m not done talking about this.”
My fleeting hopes of escaping in the confusion have failed.
“Which one are you partnering with?”
No, that’s not all!
“Who does Ooga like?
Two girls are coming after him.
His face is stained with anguish.
Three minutes, almost an eternity, passed in the oga.
And at last, oga made his decision.
He quickly pointed to the person he should choose as his partner.
Like a man.
I’ve made a decision.
The two girls gasped.
“I never thought I’d see it coming, Oga, but you…”
“I knew… I liked that girl…”
Pancho is pale.
May covered her face with her hands.
A very disgusted-looking Oga pointed to a place… Cross was buried in the rubble…
(You were right about the fortune.)
As Zouma’s laughter echoed in the background, Oga thought that he was escaping from reality…
