The Classless Transferee's Skill Copy - Chapter 73
Chapter 73: Rendvell Games, Finals
To prepare ourselves for the finals, Snow, Yuugure, Masked Jetter, and I were given our own private waiting rooms.
Glenn and the rest, having been defeated, left to watch us from the bleachers.
Having finished maintaining Enzetta and Bulleter, I was taking a tea break at the moment to calm my nerves.
Then, I heard someone knock on the door, and I looked in that direction.
“Excuse us, Aruto-san. It’s us, Meryl and the rest!”
Huh, so everyone came.
Speaking of which, we were told that it was alright for us to have acquaintances come into our private rooms.
As I said that, the door opened, and Meryl and the rest came in.
“We came to cheer you on, Aruto-san!”
“Master, is your body alright?”
“It’s alright. Thanks, Eim!”
I stroked Eim’s head as she worried about my physical condition.
She smiled comfortably.
“Aruto-san, Kylie-san wanted us to tell you that she’s telling you to do your best!”
“I see. How is she?”
“She had to do some informant work with Garuna, so she couldn’t come here.”
I see… It seems like she had it pretty tough.
“Hey, Aruto, did you find anything out about Monster Drug?”
It’d probably be best to spread the info I got from Yuugure.
Just as I was about to speak, I once again heard someone knocking on the door.
“Aruto! It’s Wiz. Got a moment?”
“Yeah, hold on a second!”
I opened the door and Wiz came in.
This was great. Such perfect timing!
“Congratulations on moving to the finals, Aruto.
“Thank you, Wiz. So what did you need me for?”
“I wanted to ask you about the Monster Drug situation.”
…As expected, it’s about that…
“That’s great. I wanted to speak to you about that too.”
I told everyone what Yuugure had told me.
I left out the fact that it was Yuugure who told me to prevent a ruckus, though.
“…Just as I predicted, they have their eyes on this tournament….”
“In that case, wouldn’t it be good to put a stop to the tournament right now?”
Magius was right—the people who used Monster Drug would no doubt do something at this tournament.
But it was the finals now…
It wouldn’t be that easy to stop the tournament.
And on top of that…
“…Unfortunately, we can’t do that. We can’t disclose anything relating to Monster Drug to the rest of the world.”
The confidentiality of this information has come to nip us in the bud…
But if it ever got released to the public, anxiety and fear would take hold over people’s minds, and a huge ruckus would occur.
“And since we don’t even know the people behind this, we can’t cause a huge uproar.”
“We’ve got too little information, then.”
We were between a rock and a hard place… but there was little use worrying about it now.
“As much as you can, make sure to take care of the people in the audience and staff and such. I’ll do so as well.”
“Understood. By the way, to think that Captain Luke joined this tournament too…”
…Oi, oi. It seems like the secret had leaked out to even the other knights…
“Maybe we’ve been putting him through a lot… Thank you for doing him a favor, Aruto.”
“No need to thank me. Now then, I should get going.”
As I stood up, the others stood up as well and went to leave the room.
“Well then, Aruto-san. We’ll be watching from the sidelines.”
“Do your best!”
I nodded, and they left to head to the bleachers…
After seeing them off, I drank as much cold tea as I could and headed to the meeting place to get my gear ready…
I arrived at the meeting place.
Yuugure, Snow, and Masked Jetter had already arrived.
“You’re late, Aruto.”
“Eh? I thought I made it in time, though?”
“Get your ass over here already. Otherwise, we can’t start.”
“Well, he didn’t exactly mean to be late.”
“Why am I the bad guy in this situation?!”
I really did make it in time, right?!
“T’was a joke. It’s five minutes till the tournament.”
“You’re pretty gullible.”
“At the very least, I’m not the bad guy here.”
They got along well!
As I sighed, an attendant came.
“We’ve finished the preparations. I know it’s a little early, but we’d like for the finals to begin!”
Everyone but Yuugure nodded at that.
It seemed like the finals would be held in a stadium where the audience could see us live.
For the sake of attacks not flying into the audience, a barrier was erected around the arena.
In other words, we could fight with our full power.
The door to the stadium creaked open slowly…
All four of us, at the same time, headed into the stadium.
Once we came out of the door, a loud cheer came from the crowd.
It felt like we were idols in my past life…
“They’re here!! The four participants that have won the greatest amount of fights are here!”
The commentator was giving it his all.
Tension was really at an all-time high.
“Up first, block D’s victor! Pushing forward in the finals with the power of justice, the strongest hero! Masked Jetter!!”
Turning to the crowd, Masked Jetter struck a mysterious pose, and the crowd roared even louder.
It was pretty blatant fanservice.
Continuing, we have the victor of block B! The solo adventurer who crawled up to here with only his own hands! Snow︎ Crowzell!”
After he was introduced, Snow waved at the crowd, putting on an overwhelming smile…
Let’s put aside the fact that the women in the crowd were straight-up shrieking delightfully at what he did.
“Up next, his first time participating in this tournament, block A’s victor! The Twin Gun Demon, who makes his opponents surrender with overwhelming power! Yuugure Kiriya!!”
The Twin Gun Demon…
Kiriya looked disgusted at the nickname he was given.
“And up last, block C’s victor! In his first time participating, he defeated the commander of the Phoenix Knight Corps with the power his name has spread far and wide for! The classless adventurer, Asou Aruto!!”
I surveyed the crowd and found Meryl ad the rest.
“Do your best!”
Everyone was cheering and waving at me.
I definitely couldn’t betray their expectations!
“They really trust you, don’t they?”
“W-well, I guess.”
I turned my head to cover up my embarrassment at what Snow suddenly said.
“Having friends is always such a great thing!”
“Ugh, this is a drag… Enough chatter, let’s get started!”
A barrier was materialized around the stadium.
So it was readied beforehand…!
“Seems like everything is in order! Now then, participants… are you ready?”
Of course, we all said, drawing our weapons.
Seeing that, the commentator then said this.
“And now the finals of the 20th Rendvell Games… Begins!”
The finals had finally begun.
…However, escaping our notice, a malicious intent was already being projected onto us…
