I was sold at the lowest price C289: Remote Control
I was approached by a woman I didn’t know in the Fugaku hangar. She was a beautiful woman with long light blue hair and a striking face, as if she were from Scandinavia. Once you see her, you’ll never forget her, but she doesn’t look familiar.
“Yuta, I’m a little busy, can you hand me that wrench?”
I can’t remember if I saw her before but it would be rude to ask who she was…….She was wearing work clothes and a hat like the one Liza was wearing, so maybe she was a new mechanic.
That’s what I thought, so I asked Liza, who was nearby.
“What’s up, Yuta? I’m busy, so don’t talk to me.”
“Who’s that girl working over there? Is she a new mechanic?”
“Huh? Who’s new?”
“Look, there she is.”
Liza stopped her work and looked in the direction I was pointing.
“Who’s that girl?”
“What? You don’t know who she is?”
“I’ve never seen her before.”
“Wait a minute, does that mean you’re suspicious?”
When I said that, Liza began to get a little antsy.
“I’ll go get Darm and Balm in a bit.”
Surely the macho twins would be able to handle that girl even if she was a great assassin. But when I thought about it, it was a little strange. She’s imposing for a mechanic, and she knew my name…….Let’s go out on a limb here and ask her who she is.
I mustered up a little courage and approached the girl and spoke to her.
“Um……who are you again?”
I’m sorry, I can’t talk to you right now my hands are tied. Can you go get Rafishal for me?”
If Rafishal knows about her, it’s going to be hard for me to understand what’s going on. But I didn’t have the courage to ask again, so I did as I was told and went to call Rafishal.
“Rafishal. There’s a girl I don’t know calling for you.”
When I said that, Rafishal just said okay and went to the girl. No, if you know that girl, explain it to me.
“Rafishal, if you’re going to mass produce this elemental line connection, you might want to change the shape to a semicircle. I think that would speed up the production process.”
“You’re right. I see. I’ll redraw the blueprints.”
I was surprised that the girl could give input to Rafishal. No mechanic should be able to talk to Rafishal as an equal in knowledge and skill, but……the mystery was deepening.
“What’s the matter, Liza, Darm, Balm? What’s wrong with you?”
Rafishal pointed out to Liza and the twins. The twins were ready to engage in a battle with the unknown person, and they were holding a large wrench in their hands.
“There was a suspicious person……Master, are you okay?”
“Suspicious person? Where is it?”
Then he pointed at a girl he didn’t know. When Rafishal saw this, he started laughing loudly. The girl was also giggling.
“I’m sorry, I forgot to explain. She’s Feri.”
“Oh, my God! Feri? That Feri! Oh, really! Where did you get that body?!”
I asked, surprised.
“This is a pseudo-body created using homunculus technology. It’s not a real body, and it doesn’t have a soul in it, so it’s not really Feri.”
“It doesn’t have a soul?”
“Feri’s soul is still in the Thought Sphere, but I’ve made it possible for her to control this body remotely. There’s just too much to do, and I’m way over my capacity, so I made this as a last ditch effort.”
It seems that Rafishal had created a remote-controlled body for Feri to help him with his work.
“I thought Rafishal would at least talk to you.”
Feri said in dismay. I’m impressed that she can express herself remotely.
“No, I thought I explained it to him, but I remember that I didn’t.”
Rafishal seemed a little too busy and confused. I’m starting to worry that he needs to rest a bit.
