I didn’t have time to finish my sentence, and then I saw my feet shining, the scene changed in an instant and I was dropped from a height of about a meter from the ground.
“Gah!? ……Where is this?”
I was dropped from above the waist, but it was softer than I expected, and since I was on a bed, the springs absorbed the shock and there was no pain at all.
“I thought I was getting used to the supervisor’s unreasonableness, but I can’t help if I don’t have any of my questions answered.”
The difference in ability between us is so great that I’m not only on the sidelines but it’s become a game where there’s no such thing for me to send a first attack or even a second attack.
If my boss’s legendary treasured sword, unreasonable swing, and insane throws, are used at the same time, there is no way for me to resist at the end. [T/N: Evia is being described as a final boss in most JRPGs.]
“…This is a hotel, right?”
The lights were on, so I could see what kind of place I was in.
There is a TV, a small refrigerator, a large bed, a stand, and the layout of a slightly larger but more expensive hotel room.
“ What am I supposed to do in this place, supervisor? Please give me information.”
Fortunately, there was an entrance, so I could go outside, but I couldn’t go outside when I was indirectly told that someone was coming.
The clock on the side of the bed told me that it was three o’clock in the afternoon, but even if I knew that there was nothing I could do but sit on the bed and wait.
But it seems that the supervisor’s job is to do everything as fast as possible.
She doesn’t make the other party wait, and a magic circle appears right above where I’m sitting, not to the side or behind me, but right above.
“…this position is…”
“Wha–!?” (Mystery Employee)
It’s been a lot lately, but I’d like to have at least some time for others to finish their words.
Before I could say no. The voice of the transferring figure was female. This is not zero-gravity space, so of course, the woman is going to fall.
And right below her was me.
“Wha—!?” (Mystery Employee)
The only way to avoid a head-to-head collision is to catch her.
The person who had not a moment to think was able to land safely
*Soft squishy SFX*
Oh, I’m sure most people can guess how I caught her just from the sound, but let’s just say she was pretty soft and smelled really good.
I’m not sure if it’s because of the Magic Crest or because my eyesight is improving, but I can see who it is.
Due to the devil’s command, this person is in quite a happy state.
Specifically, since I am staring at Suela-san who is between my arms.
…My heart is fluttering like crazy since I can’t help but enjoy her feel and smell!
But even if I can’t afford it, I know this.
The end of the Lucky Lewd Scene is an attack on the other party with full power from the victim. [T/N: The “Rakkii Sukebe” or “Lucky Lewd” is the joke trope used by many mangas, anime, etc. Usually with female characters getting accidentally groped on or peeped on and they react violently knocking out the poor b*stard.]
At the very least, they’re not going to go easy on me.
Oh no, my life is about to be condemned to death.
I have to do something about it.
“You see, this is the thing.”
While thinking that I should put everything and reason out, I made excuses with my head about to boil over, and while I was thinking about how to continue, I decided to release the arm I was holding for the time being.
Calm down, this is what I will tell her. Then, take your time to understand the situation.
I’m sure we can find a solution.
Suela-san is crying, that’s it! The explanation is over! I don’t understand why!!!
Then I saw that her mouth was on a tight line as tears spilled from her eyes.
Yeah, every thought I have at that point was blown with the wind, and I have no idea what to do.
*Soft squishy SFX*
Why are you hugging me there!?
I’m just about to leave!?
Normally, there are many options here, such as pushing me away first, getting angry, embarrassed, complaining, or running away, but I think the first step is to leave!
I am relieved that you won’t hit me.
I said it twice because it’s important!
As a result, I’m on the verge of Suela-san feeling ‘something’ celebrating.
“Well, Suela-san, why don’t we move for the time being?”
No, don’t shake your head.
This situation is bad.
The supervisor may have created this situation, so there’s no chance that someone will interfere in the middle, but that’s not good.
If this continues, I’m going to,
What am I doing?
The slight tremor in my palm as I touched her shoulder to push her away, and the weakness in her arm as if to refuse my action.
Perhaps her emotions are spinning out of control and she doesn’t know what she’s doing, but Suela-san is acting on instinct.
I can’t just push her away from me.
What I felt was fear.
To be honest, I have no idea what’s okay, but just hearing someone say it’s okay makes me feel a little more secure.
Carefully and slowly, I hugged her again.
Normally, I would be accused of sexual harassment, but for now, please overlook it.
“It’s okay, it’s okay.”
I slowly pat her on the back as if I were comforting a child.
I don’t know why she has gone from standing tall and dignified to this, but something must have happened.
For now, I’ll stay like this until she calms down.
“Are you okay now?”
I don’t know how long I stayed like this because I couldn’t see the clock, but I think a lot of time had passed.
The tears hadn’t stopped yet, but I guess she was starting to get her emotions under control.
Suela-san calmed down until we could finally talk.
The situation changed from the rage I expected, In the end, all I did was hug her.
I hope it still comforted her.
However, there are no convenient words to end her tears.
This is where the real work begins.
I slowly asked back the apology that was spilling out.
I think I made a gentle tone, something I don’t often do myself.
“…I couldn’t make it in time and I put you in danger.” (Suela)
After a few moments, her voice sounded so weak that I felt like I was going to break.
It’s not your fault.
I couldn’t say that.
The words “it’s not your fault” are comforting, saying that you are not responsible, but in the case of people with a strong sense of responsibility, sometimes those words are hard to believe.
They start to doubt themselves, wondering if it’s really true and if they are not responsible.
So I kept quiet, patted her on the back, and waited for her to say something.
“… If I were faster, that would have never happened.” (Suela)
It may be arrogant to try to take all the blame and responsibility.
It may be because she is tied up in the past that she talks about what-ifs about the past.
Still, she needs to do it now.
“I was so scared when I saw the way you were pierced by the sword and stopped moving. Something inside of me whispered ‘what if I never talk to you or see your face again.’” (Suela)
She is definitely stronger than me.
It may be a bit rude of me to say this, as I’ve only been alive for a mere 30 years, but Instructor Kio, Instructor Fusio, Supervisor, that always cheerful Kaley-san, and Suela-san, who has always stood tall and dignified.
The women that I have had experiences with, who have lived in peaceful and affluent Japan, could never have imagined and have come to this day.
They are at war.
They have been at war until now, they have experienced conflict, and I am sure that Suela-san knows death more intimately than I do.
“I had no idea how to save you. I just hated them. The person who hurt you, I should have moved to help you right away, but I couldn’t think straight, and when I thought it was over, there you were, covered in blood.” (Suela)
I’m sure she was prepared for such a situation.
She must have been prepared to lose someone close to her, someone next to her, or herself.
But that doesn’t mean that she is okay with it.
“When I heard that you survived, I thought about it over and over again. I wondered if I could have done more if I hadn’t hired you at that time.” (Suela)
It was a brief three days for me, but it must have been an incredibly long three days for Suela-san.
Many people must have offered her words of comfort.
I don’t know how she responded each time, whether she smiled and told herself it would be okay, or said thank you and encouraged herself, but she continued to worry until I woke up, interrupted by her own words, which she asked over and over again each time she received them.
“Their attitude has been getting quite annoying, so you’ll have to deal with them.” (Evia)
The supervisor had seen right through Suela-san.
The supervisor knew that I was the only one who could unburden her of the responsibility for my serious injury, or rather, the one who was about to unburden her.
That’s why she forced me, who had just woken up, to meet with Suela-san.
But I didn’t understand.
Why does Suela-san feel guilty about this?
I’ve only heard the outline of the story, but I’m pretty sure the cause was the Research and Development Department, not Suela-san’s Human Resources Department.
Suela-san should have just been dispatched to deal with scandals in other departments.
I didn’t know what to say without knowing what she said, and she raised her face from my arms.
We were staring at each other again.
I looked at her face clearly and thought, “I shouldn’t be thinking like this at a time like this.”
Her eyes were wet with tears and her face was full of melancholy, and I honestly thought she was beautiful.
I was mesmerized and totally in love.
“I didn’t want to know you.” (Suela)
And I knew.
