Hot I Was Caught Up In A Hero Summoning But That World Is At Peace Chapter 550
The racing game played in the virtual world was really interesting. There were courses that ran in the ocean and courses built in the sky, which were only possible because it was in the virtual world, and I became absorbed in the game, forgetting about the time.
I lost to Alice, 1 – 4, but I was able to snatch a win in our final race, which already makes me very satisfied.
Alice’s announced that it was time to open the doors to the public, so we left the virtual world and returned to the original world.
[……Well, even so, that was really fun. I’d love to play with it again when it’s finished.]
[I’m glad to hear that you like it. Well, there are still a lot of issues to be cleared in terms of cost and technology, so completion is still a long way off…… I guess it will take more than a decade. But I’ll let you test play again, Kaito-san.]
[That’s great to hear. To be honest, I’m really looking forward to it.]
[Ahaha, there are also other attractions at the festival, so let’s check them out too.]
I guess it’s really difficult to complete a game of such magnitude. Even with the cooperation of Kuro, the leading expert in magic tools, and Alice, who was a master of a vast amount of knowledge, it would take more than a decade to complete the game……
But from what I’ve played, it seems to me that it’s almost finished…… Is there still a serious problem in that game?
As I was thinking about this, as if she had sensed my question, Alice spoke with a wry smile on her face.
[……As I said before, the concept itself has been in the works for quite some time already. Incidentally, that concept…… was “to make Isis-san’s wish come true”.]
[We thought that if suppressing Isis-san’s magic power of death isn’t an option in the real world…… As her magic power itself was the basis of Isis-san’s existence, there was no other way for me to do anything. What we had come up at that time was a mental clone. Compared to her main body, the mental clone would have considerably less magic power. If that’s the case, we thought that if we used an external technique to assist her in making this mental clone, well, we could suppress her magic power of death within a large-scale ward.]
[However, I guess even though it was just her mental thoughts, it was still her clone, and even with the large-scale ward…… Well, in other words, even if it was limited to the virtual world, it was difficult to suppress her magic power of death without affecting Isis-san’s existence. Adding the cost and technical problems, even trying it was difficult.]
It seems that the idea of creating that virtual world was for Isis-san. When she’s talking about Isis-san’s dream, without a doubt, it was “to meet someone who would accept her, even if their strength was weak”.
Judging from the way Alice was talking, it seems like they had been thinking about this for quite some time.
[Well, we didn’t know when it was going to be completed, and I also wasn’t sure if it would work. So, we kept it a secret from the others so that they wouldn’t get their hopes up. Well, Kuro-san was originally the only one who was working on this and she asked me, who had knowledge of technology not found in this world, to help her.]
[And you helped with her, Alice?]
[Yes, I’ve also owed Kuro-san a favor…… As for Isis-san, well, I had as much sympathy for her as a drop in a bucket. No, I lied. I didn’t really care about her. I’m only doing this because Kuro-san was asking me so much about this.]
[……You’re not really honest with your feelings, aren’t you?]
[……Erhem. Anyway, that was the purpose of this project, but it didn’t go well at all, and even just making a single experimental tool was too much work…… It’s a project that ended up being half-frozen.]
Stopping talking for a moment, Alice turned to me and brightly smiled, before speaking again.
[……In the end, Isis-san was saved by Kaito-san’s appearance. On the contrary, thanks to Kaito-san, I was able to get the cooperation of Shallow Vernal-sama, and the project immediately progressed. Kaito-san, you’re seriously quite the “singularity”.]
[A- Ahaha, well, if I can help you…… Unnn? Wait a moment, what did you just say? You were able to get the cooperation of Shiro-san?]
[Eh? Well…… Even when Kuro-san asked her for help, she always said “she wasn’t interested”, but this time, even though she had that condition of having a date with Kaito-san, she generously cooperated…..]
[……On the condition of having a date with me?]
[……Did I not mention it before?]
Wait a minute, I think I just heard something unbelievable. I did promise to go around with Shiro-san on the seventh date, but I felt like she was leading me to ask her out at that time, so I had no problem with that.
[Hey, Alice. I was thinking that there was no way this is the case but…… You weren’t negotiating with Shiro-san for her cooperation, using that condition, without my knowledge, right?]
[……N- No, the one Shallow Vernal-sama negotiated with is Kuro-san…… From what I heard, she used a really terrifying negotiation tactics…… Saying “Just Kuro is unfair” in an endless repeat……]
[……Ahh, I see……]
Indeed, being faced with her endless repeat is difficult. I don’t blame Kuro for being overwhelmed. But still, I would like to say one thing.
[……By the way, Alice…… Do you know what “Human Rights” means?]
[……No, I’m someone from another world…… So I don’t really know what’s in the Constitution of Japan.]
[Oi, don’t look away. Say that while looking at me. You definitely know what I’m talking about, right!?]
Dear Mom, Dad———— How should I say this…… Well, it’s not that I don’t like the idea of going on a date with Shiro-san. Moreover, I’m really happy if I could be of help to Kuro and Alice. That’s why, I don’t want to blame Kuro or Alice for this but…… I just want to make sure of one thing————– What about my Human Rights?
Serious-senpai : [You have no human rights! Serves you right, Kaito!]
? ? ? : [Well, as long as Kaito-san doesn’t have them, Serious-senpai doesn’t have them either. Neither do you have Human Rights, nor Serious Rights……]
Serious-senpai : [You’ve got to be kidding! What do you think you’re doing with Kaito!!!? Give the man some more respect!!!]
? ? ? : [Well, even if Kaito-san had Human Rights…… It’s not like Serious-senpai would have it.]
Serious-senpai : [………………..]
~ ~ The Actual Exchange at that time ~ ~
Kuro : [Listen here, okay, Shiro? I will agree to clearing Kaito-kun’s schedule for the seventh day, but you would have to make sure that he knows that you two will go on a date! I won’t allow you to force him against his will!!!]
Shiro : [……Even though that schedule was also done without his permission?]
Kuro : [……It’s fine if I do it…… We’re lovers.]
Shiro : [……Mnhhh.]
Eden : [……I see. In that case, I will also be my beloved child’s……]
Kuro : [He will definitely not accept you!]
Eden : [……How disrespectful.]
