I was sold at the lowest price C272: Gathering in Elysia / Yuki
Mr. Eo, the Minister of Military Affairs, resigned. The reason was that he was losing strength due to a worsening chronic illness, but we all knew that was not the real reason.
He left the imperial capital, saying he was going to retire in the countryside. With the departure of the last major figure of the old imperial regime from the public stage, the transition to the new regime ruled by Rafishal was in full swing.
The three best riders of the Elysian Empire, including Yuto, could not resist this trend. Yuto-san, Rosetta-san, and Emesis-san also decided to take Nitro Ludia. I can’t imagine how much stronger the three strongest riders will become with Nitro Ludia.
“What are you doing in a daze, Yuki?”
“You said there was someone you wanted me to meet, and I was wondering who it was.”
Earlier, I had received a call from Rafishal. He said there was someone he wanted me to meet, but I couldn’t guess who it was.
“Long time no see, Yuki.”
The one who showed up at Rafishal’s call was my classmate Reina Azuma. In addition to her studies, she is also a model, and to be honest, we do not get along well. For some reason, she seemed to have a strange rivalry with me, and was always trying to compete with me in some way.
“Reina, why did you come to Elysia?”
“Because my country was destroyed by Elysia, I’m going to work as a rider in this country. Nice to meet you, senpai.”
The sarcastic tone of voice still gave the impression that she didn’t think well of me.
“How’s it going, Yuki, seeing an old friend again? Reina is an excellent Class 4 rider. Her results in Nitro Ludia were good, and she will be a representative of Elysia from now on.”
It seems that Reina has already been subjected to Nitro Ludia. The explosive increase in her Ludia value may have given her such a relaxed atmosphere.
“It’s nice to see my classmates again. Nice to meet you, Reina.”
I said something that was not in my heart. Of course, Reina probably doesn’t think that I meant what I said. I can tell by the expression on her face as she smiles fearlessly.
“Also, there’s another person you may not have met before, also an excellent Class 4 rider. I’d like to introduce him to you, since you may be working together in the future.”
The person who appeared was a stunningly beautiful woman with long, blond hair.
“My name is Cruz. From now on, I will do my best for the Elysian Empire.”
Perhaps it was a woman’s intuition, but I felt a strange sense of discomfort in her. Behind her casual words, I sensed more malice than from Reina. Not wanting to get too involved, I greeted her appropriately and left Rafishal’s audience room.
Plans were underway to use Nitro Ludia on the riders from Japan. However, due to the lack of equipment and technicians, more time was needed before all riders could receive it.
After all, it seemed that priority was given to those with high Ludia values, regardless of their contribution to the nation, and even riders who had just been incorporated from other countries would receive Nitro Ludia as soon as their Ludia values were high enough.
With the expansion of the Nitro Squad, Elysia was rapidly gaining power. What is he going to do with all this strength? There is no such thing as an enemy nation that can compete with us anymore……but the defeat of the Nitro Corps came in succession. The Nitro Corps’ headquarters was in an uproar over the news.
“A squad of Nitro Corps was wiped out in the fight against the Three Kingdoms!”
“You mean the Sword Clan?”
“No, not exactly. They’re saying it was another mercenary group, but we don’t know the details.”
“I also heard that a squad of Nitro Corps was beaten to a pulp in the fight against the Kingdom of Rhesia.”
“No way…….squads of Nitro Corps were destroyed unilaterally?”
“Yeah. What’s going on? Isn’t the Nitro Corps an invincible force?”
The Nitro Squad is quite powerful, even among the bottom riders. Furthermore, the performance of the Terror Mail surpasses that of ordinary magicrafts. When it comes to defeating it one-sidedly, it’s hard to imagine how powerful the enemy is.
In response to this situation, the military of the Elysian Empire decided to make major changes. I was called in for that announcement and couldn’t imagine what was going to happen.
