“Now, Jiro, let’s get down to business. I have to tell you to get along because of my position, but that’s for the human side. I’m not saying that you should suppress your anger and reason to get along. Just don’t cause any trouble and get a good track record.” (Evia)
Then the supervisor turned serious as if she were flipping a switch.
“That’s not the kind of thing you want to say to someone who has caused trouble, is it?”
“I wouldn’t say that to someone who can’t do it. I don’t say that to people who can’t do it. Besides, the idea that we should all get along with each other is just a cheap attempt to get along on the surface. People try to have a sense of camaraderie in a pretentious way, but to me, such group mentality is just a nauseating, spiteful thing.” (Evia)
My supervisor doesn’t seem to like pure things.
She rejected two of the three principles of camaraderie, hard work, and perseverance that were always guaranteed in shounen magazines.
“Listen, Jiro, remember this. I’ve seen too much of the human race. The greedy, the innocent, the wise, the foolish, you humans are the same, nothing changes except your perception as individuals. We are evil, wielding weapons in our hands that could destroy us, and wielding them in the name of our cause. We have to be honest about our greed and believe that we are right and that we are not wrong. It’s all the enemy’s fault. Justice is mine. However, there’s a lot of justice in this world.” (Evia)
I was not so shocked by Supervisor Evia’s words, which she spat out in deep disgust.
That’s the way it is with people.
We only believe what we want to believe, and turn away or reject what is inconvenient.
Rarely do relationships exist where people are okay with seeing dirty things, but those are few and far between, and the majority of people keep a shallow and moderate distance from each other.
“How do you expect me to smile and say, ‘We’re friends, we should work together.’?” (Evia)
To the supervisor, it looked like a childish act of camaraderie.
I can both understand and agree with that.
“You’re right and it’s a good argument, but why would you say that to me, a human being?”
I have no choice but to react this way.
“I’m still able to distinguish between the two. You are Jiro Tanaka before you are a human being to me. I can at least make a special case for you. I don’t know if anyone else will, it’s up to them to try.” (Evia)
I don’t feel bad about being told implicitly that they can do it.
Even if I knew it was in this person’s hands.
“As an object to be toyed with?”
“No, you don’t have to say it.”
You don’t have to tell me. I can see it in your expression.
Yes, you do have a very happy expression on your face.
“And Jiro, even though it was a command from the Demon King, I was only thinking of inviting humans to the dungeon, but I’m happy that there are interesting characters and I unexpectedly found enjoyment.” (Evia)
The interesting character is probably me if I think about it in their way.
It’s good to be liked by your boss.
“Wait a minute, supervisor, what did you just say? Is this company a dungeon?”
I’m sorry to interrupt the good mood of the conversation, but I think the demon has just said something outrageous.
“Why didn’t you notice it? Well, the concentration is slightly diluted to get used to the magic power… The building of this company itself is my dungeon. Otherwise, it will lead to other dungeons. Otherwise, it is impossible to fill an area without magical power, even if it is limited to a small location in a world without magical power. This is better than having multiple gates leading to other dungeons.” (Evia)
And when I think back on it, it’s true that this company is large, but there are several facilities that boast of vast indoor areas that are physics-defying.
The training room, the commercial facilities in the basement, and so on.
The explanations that were given to me made sense to me.
“When it comes to this company’s building,”
“There is a dungeon core. If it is destroyed, I won’t be able to maintain its existence and will disappear.” (Evia)
“Are you sure? Really.”
“I don’t care. It’s classified, and I didn’t put it in a place where it could be compromised. It’s called a dungeon, and it’s protected to a certain degree. In any case, Jiro, why don’t you challenge my dungeon in the name of a security check and make me your opponent? The other generals will go along with you if you do that now, you know?” (Evia)
“I don’t want to add more jobs, so please refrain from doing so.”
I don’t want to add more work, so I’ll pass.
It wouldn’t be strange if there were bonus-stage hidden bosses for a dungeon made by Supervisor Evia.
I’m not sure if it’s orthodox or not. I’m having a hard time with even the most orthodox dungeons.
I’m not going to let myself get stuck in an environment where I can’t even level up by dying over and over again.
“It’s a shame, because I’ve heard that Duke’s got a lot of free time on his hands, but I thought it would be a good idea.” (Evia)
“Please continue to spare time for the Duke.”
This Duke must have been a high-ranking demon that is close to the top.
I can clearly see that the Duke is in a different dimension when it comes to strength.
“It’s a bit boring. Well… I’m sorry, I got sidetracked, but our response has generally been to remain calm. As an improvement, I gave the man a job flier, but that was it. I’m not going to get involved any further, at least not from me. What are you going to do when you hear that?” (Evia)
“Ignore it, that’s it.”
“What? Why?” (Evia)
“Most of my feelings say that it’s too much trouble, and if I think logically, it’s obvious that I’ll lose money by getting involved. How about that.”
“Do continue.” (Evia)
She leans against the back of the chair with her arms crossed and urges me to go.
“I’m the one who broke the person’s pride, and even if I were to approach him to make amends, he’d look down on me and want to use me as a stepping stone. No, the thought of eliminating me would probably come first. I don’t want to be attacked from behind, so I don’t think it’s possible for us to have a business-only relationship or a work friendship at this stage. He’s the type of person who only sees the immediate benefit. If that’s the case, let’s pretend it never happened, or distance ourselves from it. That’s what’s most beneficial.”
This is only a stopgap measure to cover up the stink, but there are only so many steps you can take.
It’s not the best way, but it’s better than the other methods.
“How boring.” (Evia)
“You’re just gonna let it go.”
“Well, from the standpoint of managing an organization, what you’re saying is not wrong. But it’s not my cup of tea.” (Evia)
I almost smiled at the fact that her personality and tastes began to emerge, but when I thought that the supervisor had moved away from the backrest, I was grabbed by the collar and was drawn towards her.
