Episode 3: The winning bid price is two fruits

 

Apparently, we’re going to be auctioned off…….One by one, we’re made to stand on a stage in front of a venue with hundreds of people…….Then a man who looks like a moderator begins to explain.

“The first rider is a Highlander with a Ludia value of 12,000, and since he’s a Highlander, the starting price is a high 10 million gold……Then you can bid.

“30 millions!”

“50 millions!”

The price keeps going up and up…….

“There is no other bidder……then the Valkyria Empire’s bid of 160 million is the winner.”

The MC looked around, made sure there were no other bids, and hit the hammer in his hand.

“Since your bid was successful, the Valkyria Empire will not be able to bid again until the fifth round.”

Apparently there’s a rule that you can’t win bids in a row……

“And now for the next rider, this is a double Highlander with a Ludia value of 29,000! We’ll start at a high price of 20 million…….Please bid accordingly.”

When they heard the figure of 29,000, the audience started to get excited…….The face of the person in charge of the Valkyria Empire, who had just won the bid for Iwanami, turned pale…….Even if they wanted to, the Valkyria Empire could not bid, so they could only watch with their fingers crossed…….

“300 millions!”

“400 millions!”

“700 millions!”

There are some outrageous prices popping up…..29000 seems to be such a great number……

“1.2 billion……Is there any other bidder?……Then, the Kingdom of Rubel is the winner.”

How overpriced a Highlander is becomes apparent in the prices of the mediocre classmates that follow……I was surprised that there was so much difference between 300,000, 450,000, and a million at the most…… And finally, it’s her turn……to be the highest priced snow white in the class……

“So here’s today’s best rider……Ludia Value 36000……Triple Highlander.”

With those words from the moderator, the room became the noisiest it had been all day……Then, with the words of the auctioneer, high pitched voices overflowed.

“One Billion!”

“Two Billion!”

“Two and a half billions!”

The order of magnitude of the amount of money in dispute is different from what it used to be……And then one man’s words silenced the audience…….

“One hundred and twenty billions…….”

“One hundred and twenty billion…….Is there any other bidder?……Then Elysia Empire’s bid of one hundred and twenty billion will be the winner.”

When the winning bid was decided, the audience started to get excited…….

“It’s Elysia again…….Lately, the best riders are always taken by Elysia…….”

“It’s no use, Elysia has found another new orichalcon mine and things are going pretty well.”

That’s what I’ve been hearing…… Now it’s Nagisa’s turn, I wonder how much……she is going to be sold for.

“Twenty million……is there any other bidder……then the Kingdom of Amuria’s bid of twenty million wins.”

Twenty million is a lot of money……Well, actually, I didn’t do anything, but I was a little bit happy that my childhood friend was appreciated…….

The auction proceeded in a bland manner, perhaps because the highest-priced auction was over…….The Highlander’s Mikage was a little more exciting, but that was it…….And then I…..My auction gets exciting in a different way……

“Now……here comes the unfortunate rider…… I’m really sorry, he’s not for sale but we’ll auction him at least once……Ludia value……2……This value is like some kind of joke……It’s not going to help you, but you might want to bid on him as a memento…….And so it begins.”

But no one’s hand is raised…….The audience is just making a lot of noise…….No……they’re not making noise. They’re laughing…….I was being laughed at by the audience…….

“What’s wrong with the Ludia value?……2…..Damn it……”

And if it was only the audience that laughed, it would still be forgivable…….For some reason, my classmates, who were supposed to be my friends, also laughed at me as if they were looking down on me…….That’s terrible……But Shirayuki and my childhood friend Nagisa were the only ones not laughing…….They were looking at me with concern…….That made me feel a little better……

“Is there anyone betting? I’ll accept even one gold coin.”

“Okay, I’ll buy him! But I can’t even give you one gold; I can only give you two of these Lago fruits…….Hahahahaha!”

When the man said that, the audience burst into laughter…….I don’t know what’s so funny about that…….I’m only worth two pieces of fruit……
