“It’s amazing! This is fantasy! There is magic!” (Minami)
“Woah! Woah!! I can see it everywhere!” (Minami)
I’m sorry to say this to Masaru, but I can’t contain my excitement right now.
Ever since I entered this building, my heart has not stopped thumping.
Like the sudden encounter with the Dark Elves, the scenery itself was modern, but the characters were all from a fantasy world.
For me, who wished I had something like this, but gave up thinking that it would never exist, I find myself laughing at myself.
Feeling refreshed, I feel like I’m here in a fantasy world. Just behind that man’s back.
To give you an idea of how excited I am, when I saw the dark elf woman and realized it was real, I was so moved I couldn’t put it into words, and my tear glands went off.
And the moment it was just me and Masaru in the room, I forgot myself and jumped on Masaru for bringing me to this exciting life.
“Hey! Getaway!!! This is not your home!!! (Masaru)
“Thank you!!! I’m glad that Masaru was my childhood friend!!! I’ll give you a kiss as a thank you!!! (Minami)
When Masaru first brought in the job ad, I was worried that he was tired from doing too much housework, but he didn’t seem to be lying when he talked seriously about what happened on his way home from shopping.
Since I had said before that I would be interested in a job in a game-like world, it was hard for me to say no, so they set up the interview and I wrote my resume for the first time in my life.
I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed on the way to the company.
I wanted to go home. I wished over and over again that I could go home.
But those black and murky feelings were erased with a dynamite explosion.
And once the gasoline was added to the mix, there was no stopping it from burning.
I think I’m using quite the sexy voice.
If I hadn’t done that, I might have been given the R rating.
That’s how overwhelming my feelings were.
“Hey! Really, just stop!! What if someone comes!!!” (Masaru)
“Oh, I’m sorry I disturbed you.”
I can’t decide if it was good timing or bad timing, but what I do know is that I was really nervous at that moment.
I repeated over and over in my head that I had failed.
The scene kept swirling like a storm, like a commentator on a video saying it was all over.
I was so embarrassed that all the blood in my body rushed to my head.
I think Tanaka-san, who managed to let me redo the interview again, is a really nice person.
If it were me, I would have taken a picture and broadcasted it on the Internet.
I wonder if it was because he understood that it was such a bad idea.
I was in too much of a hurry, and the thought that if I couldn’t do this job, I would be pulled away from the fantasy I was hoping for made me cry, and I couldn’t give a good answer because I was trying so hard to hold back my tears.
Well, I soon calmed down because I remembered something too.
And my childhood friend, who realized that my excitement had subsided and realized that it was over during the interview, took his hand off my shoulder.
But unfortunately, the excitement hasn’t subsided after I calmed down.
“I’ll show you what fantasy is.”
I was paralyzed by those words.
Tanaka-san, who was in charge of the interview who made the declaration, swung a big sword as you see in the game right in front of us, blowing off a small dragon, and cutting down a goblin riding a wolf. He did it all.
Just seeing such a scene makes my body burn.
When the scenery suddenly changed, I was disappointed for a moment as if it was CG, but I soon realized that the world spreading through this glass was definitely a reality.
Because there everything seemed solid and real.
If that were the case, the upside would be greater than the downside.
The palms of my hands were sweating as I fought with all my might, and I couldn’t loosen them.
At the same time, I felt a sense of regret, wondering why I wasn’t there.
Feelings of regret that I haven’t felt for a long time.
I used to say that reality was a f*cking trash game.
Reality is actually a God d*mn good game.
“Oh!! An earthworm!!” (Minami)
The sight of a worm covered in carapace emerging from the ground before my eyes in a cloud of dust raised my expectations.
Opening its mouth wide and attacking, trying to swallow Tanaka-san and someone who is shooting something like fire arrows to support him.
“Isn’t that magic? That’s magic, right!?” (Minami)
Being carried away is scary.
I can’t have a face-to-face conversation with someone I’ve never met before, but I’m talking to a dark elf woman.
“Yes, the elementary spell, [Fire Arrow].” (Suela)
And this dark elf is either a goddess or she has something in her smile that I, as a woman, find soothing.
“How is it? How did you feel when you saw the actual battle?” (Suela)
“I want to go there immediately!” (Minami)
“Well, aren’t you eager?” (Suela)
“Of course. Excuse me! If I have any potential, I want to awaken right now and break into that place. Truly, I do!” (Minami)
In this way, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a Hero’s power or something that came from a Demon King in a previous life.
This thing before me—I want to enter this fantasy.
“It’s dangerous, you know?” (Suela)
“There is no fantasy world that has no danger!” (Minami)
I held up my thumb and smiled.
The core of fantasy worlds has always been dangerous.
It is now common sense that magical girls will land in a war if they think that they are just doing normal things, and the trope about heroes and princesses is beginning to fade.
“Calm down, you idiot!” (Masaru)
I was so excited that I couldn’t react quickly.
It was an accurate head smack.
“It’s your fault. We’re here for a job interview.” (Masaru)
I guess he thought he needs to lecture me as he is putting his hands on his hips.
I know that, but it’s hard to control my excitement.
“Ufufufu, aren’t you on good terms?” (Suela)
“Well, we have quite a long relationship.” (Minami)
“I’m her childhood friend.” (Masaru)
I’ve always thought that childhood friends of the opposite sex were only two-dimensional creatures, but here is one.
It’s a good thing that we know each other’s good and bad points, so it’s easy for us to go with each other like this without any awkwardness.
“It’s good, because I have some long-time friends, but I have not been close to any one of the opposite sex.” (Suela)
“Are you not popular?” (Minami)
“No, that’s fine. Dark elves are a bit of a special race, and our love has always been unusual.” (Suela)
So I’d like to hear about the fact that I wasn’t blessed with that kind of relationship, but now I’m more worried about something else.
“Can we work here?” (Minami)
“Masaru, even I feel hurt when you are silent, truly, I do.” (Minami)
“I can’t believe I’m hearing you say that you’re going to work. I was expecting you to be a NEET after I graduate from college, so I can’t help but be impressed.” (Masaru)
To be honest, I was also surprised at the change of heart, but I wouldn’t cry.
Yeah, except for going to the university and taking a bath, I spend a lot of time online in my room, cleaning, washing, preparing meals, leaving everything to Masaru, waking me up for my university classes, and buying supplies.
He also takes care of my sleeping habits once in a while.
…Sorry Masaru, I might cry since I have a heterosexual childhood friend like that and I started telling him I was going to work.
I clenched my fist and I moved on.
Even if I don’t pass or fail somehow, you might be happy to know that you’re not the only one who’s hoping to get the job.
“…I’m sorry, really.” (Minami)
“Just because you said you’d do your best, I’m…” (Masaru)
I really don’t know why a terrible girl like me has such a good childhood friend.
If he had time to take care of me, he could have done many things he liked.
Oh no… I’m confident that I won’t be able to live if Masaru leaves me now, so I’d like him to continue until next year.
If I couldn’t win him over, I could easily imagine myself living in a garbage mansion.
“”…”” (Masaru & Minami)
While a fantasy scene was unfolding on the other side of the window, a realistic future was passing between me and Masaru.
“…Um, there’s a class aptitude test, would you like to try it?” (Suela)
“Yes please!” (Minami)
Yeah, we need to cherish the present more than the past!
In order to get rid of the slightly tense air, I jumped on the tablet offered by the goddess.
