“Royce, how’s that report coming along?” (Nice)
“Hey, don’t make that face. We can’t broadcast that.” (Nice)
In the research laboratory of MAO corporation, I was reading a report from the personnel department.
I’m sorry to say to my partner, Nice the Goblin Shaman, I am in a bad mood right now.
I’m reading the report of that hateful man.
Although the content of the report is biased because he has only challenged the dungeon of the Machine King, it is a report that understands our intentions and contains points for improvement.
In addition to that, the content includes ideas that we don’t have because of the different worldviews, which is frustrating but also entertaining.
I guess this is what I call a dilemma.
Something black boiled inside my chest.
“Well, what the heck, developing a wall-shaped golem, that’s an interesting idea.” (Nice)
As if unaware of my feelings, Nice peeked in and read the report in my hand and was impressed.
In the past, I would have frowned if I had a goblin’s face next to mine, but we’ve known each other a long time since we became colleagues.
I can dismiss this one as a familiar face with a certain charm.
“Yeah, it can mimic walls to surprise intruders into dungeons, or disguise paths by blocking passages, changing them, delaying mapping, or even leading them astray.” (Nice)
You only need to look at the intended use section of the report to understand its usefulness.
It’s understandable, and it makes me angry.
“Hey, it’s twisted, it’s wrinkled, it’s shredded. Just slow down and relax, or you won’t be able to read that report. It doesn’t matter how big of a crush you have on someone, no, it’s nothing. So don’t look at me with that scary look on your face.” (Nice)
Oh yeah, I’m jealous.
I’ve lived for 232 years and I’ve never been in love. While I’ve been working with the demon king’s army to develop new monsters, she’s been like a goddess to me.
I fell in love with her at first sight.
Moreover, I fell in love in an instant.
My thoughts of my research quickly disappeared and all I could think about was her.
I had heard from my friend and fellow Dark Elf that our love was rather unpredictable, but I never thought it would go this far.
I want her.
I wanted her no matter what I had to offer.
When I first fell in love with her, I had no choice but to make a contract with Evia-sama (The Devil).
“No, you’re leaking, your thoughts are leaking. And, you’re trying to sound cool, but it’s actually coming as a mess. I’m not going to forget that. I’ll never forget how you ended up getting lost in the shuffle and couldn’t do anything about it, and how you got drunk and passed out with me hanging on to you. Honestly, how can I have a good conversation with you, or talk about fashion, or consult a gorgeous goblin, even though you are the most intelligent of the races?” (Nice)
“…Did those things happen?” (Royce)
“No, you can’t pretend to have forgotten and play it cool now. You may look cool because you’re good-looking and have minimal contact with people you’re not interested in, but to someone who’s known you for a long time, you’re a complete disappointment.” (Nice)
“Well, what should I do?!” (Royce)
“You’re doing it backward!” (Nice)
Nice words cannot be denied.
I’m a f*cking mess!!!
I’m the kind of person who can’t have a conversation with the woman I like without going through all the formalities of making an appointment.
“What’s wrong with that?!” (Royce)
“I don’t care! What the hell is going on with you?” (Nice)
“What the hell was that all about? I was about to ask her to dinner when Suela ran me over and drove me into the wall! I was just happy to have her touch me even for a while!” (Royce)
“You are happy!?” (Nice)
“Last time I went to the liquor store for a distraction, I got to see Suela. It was great!” (Royce)
“No, I remember you getting blown up by Evia-sama during that.” (Nice)
“t’s a good thing I was in the middle of studying the ‘Gamma-type: You too can be a Popular Guy Tomorrow’ that I bought in this world. I couldn’t show up in front of her without studying.” (Royce)
The world of Earth is good.
They sell instructional books that are easy to understand even for someone like me who is not used to talking to women, at all.
“That’s why they say you’re a disappointment, but oh well.” (Nice)
“Did you say something?” (Royce)
“No, I’m just saying it must have been worth the study.” (Nice)
“Oh! You mean the other day!” (Royce)
I think what Nice is referring to is Suela’s visit to me the other day.
She asked me if I had any suggestions on how to solve the shortage of dungeon testers, and I thought this was a chance the Moon God had given me.
Thanks to reading that book, “Gamma-Type: You too can be a Popular Guy Tomorrow” I was able to give her all the instructions for the prototype magic detection glasses.
In addition, listened intently and smiled at the end, thanking me for my time.
Unfortunately, I asked her to have dinner with me afterward, but she refused.
But at that time, I felt happy.
“That’s why they say you’re a waste, and I don’t know what will happen when you find out who’s using it?” (Nice)
“Nice, what’s wrong with you?” (Royce)
“Don’t worry, it’s time to get back to work.” (Nice)
“Oh, the thought of having to review that report makes me depressed.” (Royce)
“It’s no use, there are so few useful reports. It’s a good thing there are some reports out there that can be implemented.” (Nice)
“It would be nice if HR had a few more decent people on staff.” (Royce)
“Suela is also in human resource.” (Nice)
“She’s different! Because she’s hiring people who are useful to us!” (Royce)
“I know you’re happy and frustrated, so let’s just smile and wipe those bloody tears away.” (Nice)
The happy mood I was in was ruined because of him.
“It’s not leaking, but I know what you’re thinking. You’ll be in trouble, that Dark Elf will take it out on you.” (Nice)
“What are you talking about, Nice, okay? I’ll focus on work.” (Royce)
I can’t make out the last part of his voice, but work is always coming, even when I’m in a bad mood.
There was a pile of reports on my desk, all of which had come from HR.
Most of them are proposals for improvements to the dungeon.
However, I’m mainly in charge of strengthening and developing Soul-type monsters.
The souls that roam the dungeons are, simply put, magical life forms.
Even though they are life forms, they have physical abilities and are soldiers dedicated to dungeons who only listen to set orders and the orders of their commander, Blood-type monsters.
However, they are a force for the defense of the dungeon for the Demon Lord’s army, which is chronically short of manpower.
The importance of this is obvious when you look at the laboratory where I work, which is fully equipped.
The responsibility is also proportionally very heavy.
“Hmm, I wish I had a decent opinion.”
This is why the feedback (comments) from the field is so valuable, but if they continue to become disappointing, frustration will build up.
“Why do you want me to make the defending forces weaker?” (Royce)
I was tempted to tear up the report that said the monsters in the dungeon were so strong that they were impossible to conquer, but I decided that it was up to me to clean up the mess.
I’m tempted to complain that this is why people are like this, but I think it’s a waste of my precious thoughts to waste them on something like that, so I throw the ones I think are unnecessary into the shredder.
It’s just a photocopied report anyway.
It’s no problem for me to dispose of them.
“I want to get the job done quickly and have a meaningful conversation.” (Royce)
My mind burns with the need to quickly figure out how to get a date with Suela on the internet, the world’s forum for exchanging opinions.
I finished my work quickly, not expecting anything to pile up other than the crumpled report in my hands.
