“The cause of this scandal is the mismanagement of the Research and Development Department, the result of unplanned actions in addition to the lack of supervision. The responsibility lies with that department. I’ll make them sorry and send them to apologize later, but I’m also responsible as the supervisor. So, I’ll apologize to you guys first.” (Evia)
This was not the kind of thinly-veiled press conference you sometimes see on TV where a big shot bows his head in a formal manner.
She disclosed the cause of the problem and expressed her sincere apology.
“The department that caused the scandal has been urged to investigate the cause. I promise in my name that there will be no more scandals like this one in the future. From now on, I will create an environment where you can challenge the dungeon with peace of mind.” (Evia)
The supervisor sent us a dignified and clear apology.
“This is a good company, and if a problem arises, the top will take action. If it were our previous company, they would have scolded us for not moving and would have harassed us for a while even after the problem was solved. So disgusting, like soggy ramen noodles with too much oil and back fat added.” (Kaido)
“I don’t think this is the time to say it. I’m just saying this along with Kaido. Supervisor, if you can correct the situation so that this kind of thing does not happen in the future, we can work with peace of mind.”
“Well, there was a decision that the person in charge would apologize in front of you and leave it for you to decide… but I am relieved.” (Evia)
“Did you say you would make them sorry from before?” (Kaido)
“It’s all in your mind, Kaido.”
I’m not going to let you throw the details of the punishment to us, but I am grateful that you will properly take action.
Even if I know that it is just a matter of course, it is surprisingly difficult for people to take action.
There is no shortage of bosses who do not like to take things for granted when it comes to responsibility.
They try to reduce the damage to themselves by scattering the blame.
This person, however, took it straight to herself.
She made it clear to us that she would deal with the problem.
No, she said she was already dealing with it.
That was enough to make us feel happy, because, in our previous environment, we had to clean up after ourselves, and even after our bosses.
“I would like to inform both Shiretoko Minami and Tokorozawa Masaru that you are now both fully cognizant. Jiro, it seems that you have acquired good colleagues. They came to visit you every day.” (Evia)
I wondered if this supervisor wanted to make me cry. I felt sorry for worrying them, but more than that, I was happy that they were worried about me. [T/N: Super Sadist Evia.]
I was too busy to worry at my previous company, so maybe I wasn’t used to dealing with this kind of situation.
Kaido sniffed in the bed next to me.
Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who felt this way.
When I see those two, we’ll go out for something good to eat to apologize for worrying them.
When I meet them, let’s say I’m going to eat something good as well as an apology for worrying about it.
“Also, it has been decided that you will be compensated for this incident. The details will be decided in a meeting within the next few days, but it’s to compensate for the delay in the dungeon capture due to the circumstances. You can expect a fair amount.” (Evia)
“That helps a lot.”
“Oh, what’s that? Do I get extra vacation time?” (Kaido)
“Are you an Idiot?”
What’s the point of getting a day off only to make up for work?
Three days may seem like a short time, but it’s a long time to catch up on work.
I don’t know what the compensation will be, but as an employee, I’m grateful that the company is taking this kind of action.
After the apology, the company’s response, and the post-processing, I guess this is the end of the story.
I’m looking forward to seeing how it all turns out, although Kaido won’t be the one to tell me.
But. If it were a normal conversation, it would end here and the supervisor would go back to work instead of wasting time. But today, there was no sign of that happening.
There was no change in the expression on her face as she stared at me.
But she didn’t seem to be trying to tell me what she wanted.
I called out to her to check on what she needed, but the silence was her only reply. What could be going on?
“Huh, Jiro.” (Evia)
“What is it?”
The supervisor is troubled.
This may be the first time I’ve seen the supervisor, who basically maintains a calm expression, sometimes with a sharp glare, disgust, or mockery, show a puzzled expression.
“Is your body, okay?” (Evia)
“Yes, I slept for three days, so I’m feeling a little bit dull, but I wonder if I’m okay.”
“Can you get up? According to the report that came to me, your body should be completely healed.” (Evia)
“I’ll give it a try. There doesn’t seem to be a problem.”
When I stood up after being told to do so, I wavered for a moment, but quickly returned to normal.
The wobbling was just a fleeting feeling caused by the dulling of my senses, so it would not be a problem.
It was as if the supervisor was a doctor checking to see if there was anything wrong with me, but I wondered why she was doing this.
I wondered but walked on anyway.
“Do you feel any discomfort?” (Evia)
“It feels a little heavy.”
“That’s a drop in your status. Keep that in mind.” (Evia)
“That’s it, I see.”
Did the supervisor want to teach me what it feels like to have a decrease in physical ability status?
I feel like it is different.
If so, there is no need for the supervisor to be confused.
I also wonder why Kaido, who was also severely injured, did not need to be checked with me.
“There seems to be no problem.” (Evia)
“Yeah… Supervisor, what’s the impromptu evaluation?”
At first, I nodded my head because I didn’t feel any discomfort, but in the end, I still didn’t know what this was all about.
I’m sure the supervisor nodded in satisfaction that the treatment was actually going well, but I can’t shake the feeling of uneasiness when someone examines my body without giving any reason.
“Jiro, change into this. No, it’s too much trouble, I’ll get you changed.” (Evia)
“What do you mean, ‘I’ll get you changed’?!”
“Don’t move.” (Evia)
Not even caring about my feelings, the supervisor did not stop, and eventually, I will be forced to change clothes.
Even though it is not a hotel that can be designated as R-rated, I do not have a hobby of changing clothes in front of a woman of unknown age and in a place where my kouhai is, so I try to resist, but with a swing of her arm, my appearance changed from a patient in a hospital gown. I now wore the men’s suit prepared by the supervisor.
I don’t have a tie, but I don’t know what’s going on when I am instantly fitted with socks and leather shoes.
“What’s good? Am I going to work?”
My shoes were polished and my hair was styled by magic or something.
I’d like the supervisor who is scrutinizing me from top to bottom to tell me what she wants me to do.
I’m not going to just sit here and lie around, I’m going to do something.
But what the hell am I supposed to do?
The suit doesn’t mean I’m going to challenge the dungeon.
Is this a recruiting job, considering my appearance?
“Oh, I am giving you a job. Comfort that idiot.” (Evia)
I knew I was going to have to work, but the job description was so out there that it made me even more confused as to what the supervisor wanted me to do.
“I’m going to transfer you and that fool to a facility inside the company. Their attitude has been getting quite annoying, so you’ll have to deal with them.” (Evia)
“No, I’ll do something about them!? How?”
It seems that the supervisor wants me to do some kind of counseling, but I don’t want to be asked to do that out of the blue.
I didn’t know how to do it, so I asked the person who gave me the job what to do.
“Don’t know.” (Evia)
She just cut me off.
“Anyway, you should be well-rested today and tomorrow. I don’t know, but a human’s time is limited, use it wisely instead of wasting it sleeping.” (Evia)
“So… I will just be recovering.” (Kaido)
“I’m not going to make you do anything too hard, so stop whining and get going.” (Evia)
It seems that the supervisor is concerned about my health, but I don’t know what to do anymore, because her actions and lines don’t match up.
Then she ignores Kaido who is being treated roughly.
It seems that what I do is to follow up on an employee who is stressed at work, but I think that this is the job of the supervisor who is their boss.
“You are free to handle this at your own risk.” (Evia)
“Wait! That’s a lot of–“
