    “I’d really like to bag it, but we’re running out of time right now, so here goes.”

     

    I laid the freshly made cloth on the floor and tilted the saucer to transfer the pile of wheat.

     

    “All you have to do is wrap it up like a furoshiki and tie it around with a strop.

     

    That’s about 10 kilos of flour in one bag.

     

    Ma-chan, I’m sorry, but could you go load this onto one of the wagons outside?”

     

    Ma-chan was puzzled, but she quickly responded by rolling up her arms and saying, “Oh …… yeah, I got it!”

     

    She is full of energy, but her strength seems to be a bit low, and she is carrying a 10 kg bag with some effort.

     

    “Hey,Leopin, can I get one of my classmates to help me carry this in?”

     

    “Yeah, do that.”

     

    “Well, I’m off for a bit!”

     

    Leaving behind such words and a lingering scent like the sun, Ma-chan runs away from the water mill shed.

     

    As I watched her energetic back, I muttered to myself.

     

    “‘It hasn’t been an hour yet, but I’m already producing a ton of wheat.

     

    At this rate, we’ll have it all in flour by the noon bell.”

     

    As long as you don’t get in the way of your work. ……

     

    But it seemed to be a fleeting hope.

     

    Because in the corner of the hut, where I glanced sideways, Payper and Kakeru-kun were in the middle of a whispering conversation.

     

    After a while, Payper came at me with his slant eyes, like a boss who found an incompetent employee in a factory.

     

    “Pa ~? After all, you look like a kuru kuru par.

    You have to do this game by yourself, but with the help of a merchandiser. “

     

    “We’re in the milling business, and all I’m asking Ma-chan to do is carry the flour after it’s milled.”

     

    “‘Pei! Well, Pei is a generous merchant, so I’ll give him special recognition.

     

    Instead, we’re going to play another game with …… pay!”

     

    You knew you were going to lose, so you thought of a further evil scheme with Kakeru-kun.

     

    “I’m in the middle of milling and knitting straws at the same time.

     

    You want me to play more games here?”

     

    “Pah, if you refuse, you’ll lose by foul play!

     

    “Since this is a game in exchange for accepting Ma-chan help, Leopin-kun is obligated to take it, right?

     

    I don’t know, it’s all over the place.

     

    “Okay, but make it a simple game where you don’t have to move from this spot.

     

    “Here’s a game even a curmudgeon can play, rock-paper-scissors!

     

    And the punishment game is the same as the ‘Which Wheat Game’ earlier, a slap!”

     

    Peyper’s cheeks, still red, pressed together as he declared the punishment.

     

    Apparently, he still holds onto the fact that he was beaten and is trying to get back at me.

     

    I got the profession of ‘Gambler’ the other day.

     

    The Gambler has a skill called “Paper Rock Scissors” that allows me to know my opponent’s hand in rock-paper-scissors.

     

    As long as I have that in me, I don’t think I can lose. ……

     

    “Are you sure you want to do this ……?”

     

    I swallow my words.

     

    I have a ‘dexterous profession’ skill that allows me to switch to various professions, but I’ve never told anyone about it.

     

    Because such a skill had never existed before, and I didn’t expect them to believe me.

     

    I felt frustrated, but when I thought about it, there was a convenient aspect to it.

     

    In the game of this world, the occupation of the opponent is an important information.

     

    If you know your opponent’s occupation, you’ll naturally know what skills to use and be able to narrow down your tactics.

     

    I’m ‘unemployed’ to them, so they think I ‘can’t do anything’.

     

    That treat is going to be a huge advantage for me ……!

     

    “Okay, fine, rock, paper, scissors.”

     

    I take off my boots and go barefoot as I accept.

     

    “Pah? What are you doing?”

     

    “‘I can’t keep my hands off the straw knitting, so I’ll have to play rock-paper-scissors with my feet.

     

    That’s good, that’s chokey, and that’s par.”

     

    I held up my feet, curling and spreading my toes to show each hand.

     

    “Pei, rock-paper-scissors with your feet, you foolish ……! Well, let’s get started!”

     

    “Before you do that, you’re gonna get down on your knees and play rock-paper-scissors in front of me.”

     

    Peyper looks like he’s about to bite his tongue off, “Payyy?”

     

    “‘I can’t help it, I’ve got my hands full and I can’t slap you.

     

    “You’re not going to slap Pei on the cheek with your foot, are you?

     

    Pei hadn’t even been hit by a hand in all his life, you know?”

     

    Peyper presses his cheek again, tears of frustration in his eyes.

     

    Apparently, it was very humiliating to be slapped by me.

     

    “I can’t help it, I’ve got my hands full.

     

    If you don’t like it, why don’t you make it another punishment?”

     

    “Pei, no, I have to slap you to get Pei off my back!”

     

    Then Kakeru-kun, who was standing beside him, put his hand on Payper’s shoulder.

     

    “Don’t worry, Payper, you won’t lose!

     

    I know how strong you are at rock-paper-scissors, you know!”

     

    “That’s right, principal! I understand! I’ll compete on that condition!”

     

    Paeper folds his knees and looks up at me like a defiant thug.

     

    I secretly activated my ‘Dexterous Job Change’ skill for ‘Dextrous’ and changed my job to ‘Gambler’.

     

    When you activate the “Paper Rock Scissors” skill, a slap-shaped aura appears above his head.

     

    The …… first move is paper or ……. It seems …….

     

    Then let’s use scissors …….

     

    As soon as I thought that, the aura above his head turned into rock.

     

    …… What do you mean?

     

    Then I’d  take Paper, …….

     

    Then the aura changes again, and it changes to scissors.

     

    …… What’s going on here, just now?

     

    Why is his hand changing hands?

     

    I’ll find out what that means soon enough.

     

    Just behind the crouching payer was Kakerukun, his hands hanging slack.

     

    At first glance, it looks like a natural way to stand, but if you look closely, it looks like he’s touching the payer’s back.

     

    …… Oh yeah!

     

    Kakerukun is activating his ‘Paper rock Scissors’ skill too!

     

    So he can read the moves I make and tell the payer over my back!

     

    That’s why his move was changing to match the move I was thinking of making!

     

    Well, I knew they’d try some tricks, but I didn’t think they’d pull something like this: ……!

     

    As it is, it’s a game of luck, where you don’t have to think about anything.

     

    That’s the right way to play rock-paper-scissors, but is there anything you can do about it? ……

     

    I suddenly have a flash of inspiration.

     

    That’s right, in my head I’m thinking ‘I’m going to play rock-paper-scissors with Kakerkun’ and think of a move.

     

    For payers, you can play ‘the opposite hand of that’.

     

    I try not to look at Kakerukun and focus on him.

     

    If you’re going to play rock-paper-scissors with …… Kakerkun, the hand you’re going to play is ‘scissors’. ……!

     

    Instantly, out of the corner of my eye, I thought I saw Kakerukun grinning at me.

     

    “All right, let’s do it!”

     

    …… bah!

     

    Hands and feet collide with each other as if they were sparks.

     

    Payper’s hand was, as expected, “Rock”.

     

    And my feet are at …….

     

    “Pa…… Paper!”

     

    I hit his cheek soundly with my clumsy hand, or rather my clumsy foot, without asking any questions.

     

    Supa!

     

    “Kamikireeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee”(Kami as in paper XD)

     

    Peyper took a blow to the sole of my foot and buzzed off to the side and out of my sight.
