do believe that luck exists.”

After our meeting, Anne brought the old subject back again.

Thats right… She was all about the occult…!

“I think that luck is an absolute number, and does not increase or decrease just because you use it. Like a stat in a game, where good things will be likely to happen if it is high, and bad things will happen if its low. But it doesnt deplete like MP. Its similar to your Attack and Defense. And in order to raise it…you need specific equipment or actions!”

She sure talked a lot…

“The reason why there are so many lucky charms sold in this century of science, is because humans instinctively know about thisLuck status, and that it can be raised. In order to sell something, you need to make people believe that it has value. Well, a lot of people do sell things that are fabrications, but such things will not last. The reason that the luck business has continued for so long is because there really are ways to increase ones own luck! But, and I hope that Im not exaggerating, most of the items out there are rubbish. Ahh…where is the real star of luck… Everyone wants to know, but there are no answers… How very occultic!”

Damn it. I had only caught fragments of that…

But she looked like she was going to continue talking. 

I had to wrap things up quickly…!

“I see. In other words, what will raise our luck is…our comrades!”

How romantic… The questionable line had sprung from my mouth.

Anne looked puzzled…!

“I-indeed! There are many times when you want to connect with people but never do. And trying to force it with money will just invite misfortune! But good connections will make you happy! Life is all about what kind of people you meet… I remember someone important once said that. So you may be onto something with this idea that connections are what leads to good fortune! Very good, Mr. Kyuji!”

Alright, I had wrapped things up and also raised the partys morale!

I hadnt been really thinking while saying it but perhaps this was the truth.

However, luck was not enough to win. And it was the same in games.

You needed to be a skilled player with the right stats and abilities.

Even if you were lucky enough to be able to dodge an attack, the damage would still be calculated when you were hit, and it would be over when it reached zero. There was no luck involved with that.

I was the Old Bowman. I would twist fate itself and shoot my arrows…!

‘And now the 6th battle of the 3rd round! Paradise Parade VS Ghost Guild! The chosen field is… Jumbo Athletic Park!

On the monitor, there was a giant slide, jungle gym, swing…and obstacle courses made of wooden platforms hanging from ropes, and nets that you had to climb.

Even someone as old as me thought it would be fun to play on them, as long as no one was watching.

So it would be a dreamlike place for children.

On the other hand, there were no areas that were really high, or durable structures that you could hide behind.

It wasnt the best environment for me…

“Dont worry, Mr. Kyuji! I will be your shield if you need one!”

“Anne… Thanks. Ill be counting on you!”

I couldnt forget that I had reliable advance guards.

Besides, if there were no durable walls, that also meant that there was nothing to stop my arrows.

If I stayed on the offensive…I could do this!

‘Both parties to the battlefield!

And so the Ghost Guild warped to the athletic park.
