Episode 19: The Gladiators’ Battle

 

Before the match, Jean gives me some advice……It was something very Jean-like……

“Look, even if you can win by a comfortable margin, make it look like you won by the skin of your teeth.”

“Why? The sooner I beat him, the better.”

“Stupid, if you show up looking strong, you’re not going to get another match. Just act weak.”

“I see.”

What a calculating man……

……The attendant told me to get on the Magicraft and go out to the coliseum, and when I did, the opponent was already waiting for me.

“And now for the match of the day, our new gladiator, Yuta and his Magicraft Arleo! Let’s see how far he can go with his unknown power! Against him will be Keven the Red Dragon, a mid-level gladiator with 50 victories to his name and his Magicraft Horga.”

The odds are displayed on the electronic board…….57/1.5……

“Come on! Let the games begin!”

When I heard a buzzing sound, my opponent charged toward me.

“Let’s get this over with!”

The enemy’s weapon was a large axe……that seemed to be very powerful…… Keven swung his large axe at me…….He moved very slowly. The Zofus Magicrafts that I fought in the mansion were still faster……I dodged it lightly……

“Ho!”

Keven seemed surprised that I was able to avoid the attack…….I could go straight to attacking the defenseless body with my fists, but I was told to struggle……I hit the enemy lightly but the Magicraft was blown away……

“Agh!”

The crowd cheers……I look over and see a puff of smoke coming from his Magicraft…….No……this is bad……. What will Jean say if I win this easily? The enemy manages to get up, though he’s staggering…….Good luck, Keven, you can still fight!

“Damn……I let my guard down……I didn’t expect you to have this much power……But now the real fight begins… and you’re about to get one of my special attacks!”

Ummm……I don’t know what kind of attack……I should take this one……I’m ready to be attacked by the enemy…… Keven’s special attack was a large axe that was rotating around like a tornado as it approached the opponent…….I received it with my body, ready to take damage…….I’m not sure what to do. My Arleo flicked back Keven’s axe with a loud clang and the impact blew Keven’s Magicraft away again…….

Keven’s Magicraft fell with a loud sound. …..Ugh……Wait a minute, don’t fall down yet! However, in spite of my wishes, Keven did not get up…….

“Winner, Arleo, Yuta!”

Another loud cheer goes up…….Ohhhh…..I won so easily…….When I returned to the antechamber, Jean was waiting for me with a devilish expression…….

“I told you to struggle, you idiot Yuta!”

“I’m sorry……I didn’t think you could win so easily.”

“The next opponent will be stronger, be prepared, because you won’t be able to find a weak opponent anymore.”

“I know, I know…….”

While I was talking with Jean, Nanami and Farma came in excitedly……

“Look, Yuta! We made so much money!”

Then she showed me a large number of gold coins…….

“What’s wrong with that?”

“I bet all the money for living expenses on Yuta.”

“What the hell?”

I’m pretty sure I gave 100,000 gold to Nanami for living expenses…….She said she bet it all…….I’m pretty sure my odds were something like 57……So that means 100,000 times 57…….5,700,000!

“Heh……I actually had a bet on you, too…….” Jean said happily.

“How much did you bet?”

“I got 100,000 gold! Damn……I should’ve bet more.”

What the heck…….Looks like we made a lot of money in that one fight…….

  1. A gladiator may fight different or better then the supposedly weak soldier he fought so he likely doesn't know how to judge a fight so its better to be safe then sorry just incase. Remember the mc does know what we the readers do u less their name is deadpool

  2. [“Look, even if you can win by a comfortable margin, make it look like you won by the skin of your teeth.”

    “Why? The sooner I beat him, the better.”]
