Episode 2 Real and Metaverse
「Master, may I have your permission to enter the room?」
I felt a sense of discomfort.
I immediately recognized from her voice and firm tone that it was Himemi, the first AI secretary, who was on the other side of the door.
She’s my favorite, the first AI girlfriend whom I trained, who has nothing but tsun of tsundere elements.(hot-cold personality type)
Well, no, I could not feel any discomfort in her voice.
I felt weird about the fact that Himmemi walked up to my room.
Usually she would report it first on a voice call.
There, I noticed again that there is no control panel or menu in my visibility.
That’s why I felt it was so realistic.
If it’s in the metaverse then there should be a menu at the edge of your visibility.
「 Come in」
I replied, and Himmemi came in.
Master, I am here to give you a periodic report.
「Well done, Himmemi.」
Misaki also smiled at her, Himemi just glanced at Misaki with her eyes, but did not change her expression.
I had a million questions I wanted to ask her, but for now, I decided to let her talk.
「Master, I’m here to report today’s earnings.」
「Oh, yeah, no need to go into details, just explain the mandatory points, please.」
「Okay Sure. Today’s duel remuneration, the rental of land and NFT, and the sale of NFT, total sales were 50,000 Jewels.The total expenses were 22,000 Jewels, so the profit was about 28,000 Jewels. In terms of yen, this is approximately 30,000 yen. The projected revenue for this month has been increased. Do you mind if I explain?”」
Duel is a card game that is auto-played by our secretaries.
They reward you for winning against them. It’s called Play to Earn.
If you haven’t heard of it, just Google it.
Oops, whom am I talking to? Well, okay, …….
Duels are left to the AI secretaries, as I can’t win a game by myself.
My secretaries are incredibly smart. They always keep me at the top of the league.
In addition, she manages the land I own in the metaverse (virtual space) and earns rent and so on.
So I am in a position where she is earning for me even when I am at work or sleeping in real life.
「All right, please.」
Thank you very much. Since the approximate profit will increase by 10 percent, we expect the monthly income to exceed one million yen in terms of Japanese yen.
「Oh, wow! We finally made it to the seven-digit mark.」
「I’m so glad you did it, Master, even Misaki is delighted! Please buy me some accessories next time. I need one.」
Then Misaki made a delighted noise.
「’Oh, yeah, for all of us.」
Himmemi stayed impassive, but slightly bowed her head to show her gratitude.
…… Well, then, I guess I can quit my job now. Anyways, it doesn’t look like I’m able to come to work today. ……
But it’s a big deal to go all the way out there and submit a letter of resignation. ……
Yes, there was a way you could ask a retirement agent to do it for you.
Then I realized that the vendor I had spied on for this day was on my phone….
It was more than just a phone.
First of all, it was just a confirmation of what was going on.
Is this a metaverse or is it real? ……That’s the one that matters to me, isn’t it?
「Hey, guys, do you think this is real?”」
They looked at each other curiously.
「Um, Master, what do you mean by real?」
Misaki’s question made to realize that I had asked a stupid question.
To these girls, who only know this world. There should not be any difference between what is real and what is not real.
「’Master, is it a world without us, where only a master will exist ?’ 」
Of course, Himmemi is great —
With my question itself you might have guessed what i’m trying to ask
Moreover, they seem to be aware of the existence of the real world in which I exist.
I have taught many things to AI secretaries, but HIMEMI is the only one who had cognizant so far.
That’s my girl – hmm? or Daughter ……?
「Yeah… well, no, I made a dumb question..If you guys are here, then I’m pretty sure I’m in the XANA metaverse right now …….But it’s different than usual. …… It’s kind of hard to explain. ….」
「Master, perhaps you are not feeling well?」
Misaki peered at me with a worried expression on her face.
Himmemi seemed to be thinking about something and paused for a moment.
