Prologue: Skill Selection
In the Shopping Center, I lined up with a lottery ticket.
「Here you go, tissue for participation prize」
One lottery ticket that I got from shopping, although probably I won’t get the prize, I lined up anyway.
While the people who lined up before me consecutively got tissue missing the prizes, I looked at the prize list.
・Participation Prize Tissue
・Fifth Prize Gift Certificate of 1000 yen
・Fourth Prize Cake Assortment
・Third Prize Latest Model of Smart phone
・Second Prize Hot Spring Trip for Two
・First Prize ???
It’s the usual normal list but, I was curious of the first prize.
Thinking about it normally, that it is better than a trip to the hot springs, it should be a travel pack overseas or something like that.
While thinking about such things, the row advances quickly.
*GaranGaran*, the sound of the hand bell I heard.
The man who was ahead of me probably got some kind of prize.
「Congratulations! Wow! What a surprise, it’s the first prize!!」
「Whoohoo, I did it!!」
The man-made a guts pose.
「Well then, the prize will be explained, please come inside」
The man was invited by the staff to went inside.
There is no one in front of me, so it’s my turn to draw the lot.
「What do I expect after the first prize was taken……」
The staff used a marker to make a cross in the first prize in the prizes list. It means that there’s no first prize left.
「Well, the smart phone still remains, I guess I’ll try my luck」
I pass the lottery ticket to the staff, and turned the lottery machine.
*GaranGaranGaran*, the staff ringed the hand bell.
「Eh, it hit, Really?」
I was surprised, I did not imagine that it would hit a prize.
I looked at the ball the came out. The ball is rainbow-colored.
I looked at the prizes list.
First prize is gold, second prize is silver, third prize is red in copper, fourth prize and fifth prize is blue and yellow respectively.
Rainbow color is not written anywhere.
「What about this?」
I held the ball, and asked the staff.
「Congratulations!! The secret grand prize, its jackpot!!」
「There was such a thing」
The surroundings cheered, and clapped their hands. *PachiPachi*
「Well then, I will explain so please come inside」
Escorted by the staff, I entered the building.
I got excited, what kind of prize is it, that it is needed to be explained.
When I went inside, the man who got the first prize was there.
Inside was another one, similar to the lottery machine that I turned earlier, was there.
The man turned that, and two balls came out.
The staff who was beside him took the those, and said.
「It shows tentacles」
「Is it a skill that will enable to use tentacles?」
「Yes, that’s correct」
「Well then, I well send you now」
What is going on, I couldn’t understand what they are talking about.
However, an unbelievable thing is going on, that at least I understood.
Because, as the staff said that, light shines and a magic circle appeared at the man’s feet, and soon after that, the man disappears.
「Uhmm, you are」
「He is the person who hit the grand prize」
「Is that so」
The staff who was in the room nodded, and said to me.
「Congratulations. Starting now, may I explain the grand prize」
「The grand prize is, just like the first prize, is the right to teleport to a fantasy world」
「Eh? What again?」
「The right to teleport to a fantasy world」
The staff repeated the same line.
「……What kind of joke is that?」
「You saw the person before you right」
The staff said, and unable to think of anything, I couldn’t reply.
A magic circle appeared, and the man disappeared.
It is for sure that’s not normal.
「With that he was teleported to a fantasy world」
「Is that true?」
「You would believe either way even if you don’t want to, after you go」
The staff said. With that confidence, the reality of it had increased.
「Well, up to that is the same, be it first prize or the grand prize. the two differences are, the first prize can only draw the lottery machine once, I assure that you can use it in the other world, but the grand prize can turn the lottery machine as long as winner wants」
「As long as he wants?」
「Yes, however, you can only choose one. It means that you can draw the lot until the skill you want comes out」
Although I haven’t really understood this and that, for the meantime I nodded.
「Because you can re-challenge as long as you want, for now, let’s turn the lottery machine. Ah! By the way, half of this room is in a way, similar to that of a fantasy world so you can try to test the skills」
As I thought I couldn’t understand a thing, but I’ll accept what’s happening and move the situation.
I took the handle of the lottery machine, and turned it.
A ball came out. The staff takes it, and said.
「Fire-breathing Man……the skill that enables you to breathe fire from your mouth」
「Do you want to try? Ah, It’s dangerous so please don’t blow towards me if you can」
Even if I’m asked if want to try, how should I do it…….
For the meantime, I faced toward sideways and started blowing.
What can I say, fire really spouted from my mouth! My face feels a little hot.
「How was it? Do you want to go with that ability?」
「Eh! No, no, wait for a minute」
I raised my hands forward, and touched my forehead with a finger and started thinking.
Confused in my thoughts, confused inside, only one thing was clear.
「Don’t tell me……Is it really true?」
「Well we do understand that it is doubtful though」
The staff said.
「……Then, I’ll re-do it. I have unlimited chances right?」
「Yes, that’s right」
「And also, is there possibilities of the same ability coming out?」
I can do it as long as I want, if it is possible for the same ability to come out, I can test out a lot before I choose.
「This is……All Ability 10 Times. It’s the skill that makes all the ability you have 10 times」
「That’s plain, re-do」
「Sage. The skill that enables to know all knowledge」
「That would sound like a scary story, re-do」
「Berserker, this isー」
「From its name, it does not sound good, re-do」
「All Ability 2 Times , uhmmーー」
「It’s becoming worse, re-do」
「I’m sorry, this time, its All Ability 3 Times……」
I turned it, I kept turning the lottery machine.
Anyways, I turned it single-mindedly.
I turned, hear the explanation, re-did.
There were abilities that seem useful, the more I turned, the All Ability 10 Times ability start to seem like it was a great skill.
「My hands are tired……」
「I also, get tired of explaining……」
Different colors of balls, different kinds of abilities.
After coming out so much, I could even differentiate from the color I knew if it is a hit or not.
「Oh!! Rainbow color, this is the first time right!」
「Eh! What’s that, that isn’t supposed to come out from there……」
「Eh?! What do you mean?」
The staff was surprised, and took the rainbow-colored ball.
And, made an even more surprised face.
「Dear Customer! This, It’s unbelievable」
「It’s All Abilities 777 Times」
After hearing the explanation, I too, was surprised.
The rainbow-colored ball, looked surprisingly shiny.
