Game of Persuasion: Katy vs Alchemy King (Kotobi’s Vote)

A letter from Katy to Kotobi’s Leader:

(First Half Omitted)

I am aware that you are devoting all of your time in your research. As I picture you working hard, I cannot help but be inspired to continue my own research too, even though I am not as competent.

The other day, I made remarkable progress in my area of study. I might one day share it with you, but for now, I’m keeping it in my mind.

I pray that you achieve great results in your research.

Your loyal servant,
Katy Kotobi

 

Letter from Kotobi’s Leader to Katy:

(First Half Omitted)

I’m curious about the contents of your letter. What is this progress you wrote about? You have a duty to disclose it. I request that you make it clear what area of study you’re referring to in your next letter.

We sent you to the National Academic Research Institute because it is there that your research will see progress. You have a duty to disclose it.

Otherwise, it is better for you to leave the academy. We have plenty of positions for you here. But first, you are to report about your progress. You have a duty to disclose it.

Letter from Katy to Kotobi’s Leader:

(First Half Omitted)

I did not expect to receive a reply from you in just three days. I deeply appreciate your interest and concern. Incompetent as I am, I have spent my days not being able to produce results that would measure up to your expectations.

However, the progress I made this time around had cleared away my concerns. I am looking forward to the day I can share it with you. Classes will continue just before winter. As soon as the first snow falls, I will start preparing for my trip home.

I know you are engaged in a grand study that far surpasses my imagination. I would be honored if you could let me see your wisdom in action one day.

Your loyal servant,
Katy Kotobi

 

Letter from Kotobi’s Leader to Katy:

(First Half Omitted)

Why aren’t you following instructions? First of all, it took five days for your letter to reach me. I understand you are absorbed in your research, but we are the ones supporting your studies, so I expect a reply from you as soon as possible.

Once again, I ask you to tell me what kind of progress you were talking about. You are to send me a summary in your next letter. You have a duty to disclose it.

Alchemy King

 

Letter from Katy to Kotobi’s Leader:

(First Half Omitted)

I am overjoyed that you sent a letter overnight via a fast horse. In the face of such honor, I do not know how I could possibly present my research results. I am both terrified and excited about my return home this winter. I hope I will be able to please you.

I am aware that you use your spare time between government work to continue your studies. And yet you still produce enormous results every year and I cannot help but be filled with awe and respect.

Your loyal servant,
Katy Kotobi

 

Letter from Kotobi’s Leader to Katy:

(First Half Omitted)

Write down which area of study you are talking about.
Write down specifically what kind of progress you made.
Reply as soon as possible (Three days is too slow. Use a fast horse.)

Alchemy King

 

Letter from Katy to Kotobi’s Leader:

(First Half Omitted)

I feel deeply honored that I am receiving letters from you in rapid succession. But I believe you already have four beautiful wives. I am nothing but a plain woman. I humbly ask that you do not send me too many letters so as not to elicit any misunderstanding.

You are the star of Kotobi, blessed with gorgeous wives and brilliant sons. I pray that I get an audience with you back at home.

Your loyal servant,
Katy Kotobi

 

A message from Kotobi’s Head sent through Magic Transmission

Forget it. I’m heading there right now. Don’t you run away.

Alchemy King

 

「Hmm? Professor Katy is looking for me?」

Trembling, an admin staff called out to Hikaru. It was the same young lady as last time when he asked about Claude.

「Eek! She told me to look for you and tell you to come to her lab quickly.」

「Okay. Thanks.」

「Eek!」

The lady scampered away. Hikaru just finished persuading Queen Marquedo — rather, Zofira in Forestzard. Katy calling him now meant that it was about Kotobi’s vote.

「Professor Katy. It’s me, Hikaru.」

「Come in.」

「He’s here?! Come in quick! Stop trying to keep me in suspense!」

Hikaru could hear someone yelling inside. I have a bad feeling about this. He entered the lab reluctantly. Inside was a small, agitated, self-important, middle-aged man.

It took only three minutes for Hikaru to find out he was the head of Kotobi, that he was called the Alchemy King, and for the man to give his vote in exchange for Hikaru’s help in their research.

「All right! You have my vote!」
