Episode 115 Amida Battle
“Jean, what’s going on?”
When I got to the bridge, I saw that all the members were gathered there.
“We have to decide on something important.”
“Yeah, this is going to be our new home, and we need a room of our own in the house, right?”
“Oh, room selection, but there are about 50 rooms in this ride carrier, so why don’t you just pick the one you want?”
“You idiot! There are a lot of rooms, but not that many good ones!”
Indeed, there are only three rooms that are clean, have a good view, and are spacious: the room that is supposed to be the captain’s office and two luxurious rooms for VIPs. The current number of Iron Knights is ten – it would be inevitable that they would be fighting for the rooms under normal circumstances.
“Let’s play the lottery like before.”
“Hmm, I hope so, because this time I’m not going to lose.”
“What’s a lottery?”
Linnecarlo, who was participating for the first time, asked.
“It’s a fair game on Earth. We’ll pick the rooms in the order they appear in the draw.”
“Hmm, just draw first. Sounds easy enough.”
I don’t think it’s easy or difficult but Linnecarlo is determined to win.
I drew lines on a piece of paper and drew the squares of the Amida lottery, folded the paper in half to hide the goal part, and each of us took turns choosing a line and adding a line to the square.
“Okay, everyone’s picked.”
“It’s a matter of routine, you know, so it’s not hard to guess who’s going to get the first pick.”
Linnecarlo reacts to Aluna’s casual words.
“Oh, then I’m the only one who lives with integrity, firmness, and humility in my heart.”
And the result…
“Oh, my God! Why! Why can’t I be the best?”
Jean lets out a shrill cry.
“There must be some mistake, I’m the last person…….”
“You may have your reasons, but this is the result! Let’s just accept it and pick a room.”
The members who had bad results started to complain, so I forced the conversation before it became too much trouble.
“Lorgo, which room do you want?”
“Oh, I don’t care…….”
“How about this one? It’s got a lot of sunshine.”
Jean recommended to Lorgo a small, ordinary room with only a little sunlight.
“You’re a bad guy, Jean. Lorgo, don’t listen to Jean, because you drew the best and you can choose the best room.”
“I don’t know what the best room is…….”
“Okay, why don’t you just take the captain’s quarters?”
“If Yuta says so, I’ll go to the……room.”
“Tsk, that was unnecessary……”
Jean is frustrated, but even if Lorgo doesn’t choose that room, I don’t think there’s a single millimeter of chance for Jean.
“Farma, what are you going to pick?”
“Hmm, I’ll take the big room on the far right.
“Oh! That’s taken too!”
Of course, Emina, who drew number three, chose the remaining VIP room, and the big prize was gone.
Liza chooses a humble room at the bottom, saying she wants a room close to the hangar – she’s a real workaholic, isn’t she?
Nanami chooses a room at the top, saying she wants to be high up, and Alana chooses a room at the back, avoiding the area near the bridge and meeting room where everyone gathers, because she wants to sleep peacefully.
Now it’s my turn. To be honest, I don’t really care what room it is, the neighbor it’s what bothers me.
“Yuta, there’s a spot next to Nanami.”
“Oh, there’s a spot next to me, too. Don’t be shy, Yuta.”
Nanami and Alana suggested that, but I felt like I’d be in trouble no matter which one I chose, so I took the safe option and chose a room with no one next to me.
“Well, it’s my turn, I guess I’ll go here……or here……there…..or here……or here…….”
And since I was bothered for an uncomfortably long time, Linnecarlo forced me to decide on Arthur’s room.
“My turn, there’s really not a lot of places left to go…oh well, I’ll take the one near the bridge.”
When Jean chose reluctantly, the last Linnecarlo said without hesitation.
“I’ll take this one. It’s all the same to me now.”
She chose the room next to mine.
“Linnecarlo, that’s right next to Yuta, if you’re going to be anywhere, wouldn’t it be better to be in a room with no one around?”
When Nanami pointed this out to Linnecarlo, she replied a bit suspiciously.
“Oh, really? Well, I hadn’t noticed. But I’m not going to change my mind once I’ve chosen a place, so I’ll just have to settle for this one.”
As she said that, she looked at the scenery outside and somehow turned her face away from me.
