My name is No. 31. I am an Automata.
Among numerous Automata, I belong to the last summoned group.
“You’re wiping the corner properly. Good.”
Suddenly I heard a voice from behind.
I look behind to see our supervisor, Eins, coming towards here.
She is kind but can also be strict some times.
She praises me when I do the cleaning properly and scold me when I do my job sloppily.
Miss Eins already graduated from being Automata and she is now a Magi Doll.
On the contrary, the nine seniors who were summoned at the same time as Miss Eins were also promoted to Magi Doll.
“Miss Eins, the butcher wants to see you.”
Miss No. 2 came to report that the butcher has come. She is one of the nine senior I talked about earlier.
“I understand. Well then, please continue doing your work.”
As I answer her, Miss Eins suddenly disappear after she smiles at me.
Miss Eins can move from place to place in a moment due to her high-tier space magic which is the『 Space-Time Magic』.
“How lucky No. 31 must be. Miss Eins only praise her.”
Saying so, it was No. 35 who was working next to me.
She seems to be bored. In the past, she has also been praised properly.
“No. 35, didn’t she praise you seven days ago?”
“You’re right. Sorry, I was a bit jealous.”
Let’s stop talking and continue working.
That day before lunch, I was called by Miss Eins to the training ground.
I then headed straight to the training ground. It’s a blessing and an honor for me to receive training from Miss Eins.
I should have notice it but is Miss Eins training me personally?
I’ve never done special training with Miss Eins.
When I arrived at the training ground, there were Mr Alphonse who collapsed on the ground, our Lord Null, the head maid, Miss Eins, the butler, Mr Zwei, and the leader of the newly form witch corps, Miss Vier.
I was stunned for a moment but I kneeled immediately.
Shortly after that, Automan No. 37 arrived.
Also, just like me, he stun for a moment before immediately kneels.
“It’s fine. Stand up.”
After receiving permission from Lord Null, we both stand up.
I straighten my back and properly fix my posture which I did more than usual.
“The reason I called you to come here is to spar with Alphonse.”
In other words, it’s a special training.
“Will you do it?”
Whatever the order is, if it’s Lord Null’s direct order, I’ll do it!
Special training with Mr Alphonse soon stops after 10 rounds.
That’s because Mr Alphonse has ran out of energy.
All ten battles ended with our victory.
After that, I had special training with Lord Null as well.
Lord Null is very strong. I lost three times out of three matches.
I was told by Lord Null the reason I lost against him is because there’s a large difference in our status.
No. 37 also fought him and he lost the same way as I am.
Lord Null is a wonderful person.
“How was the special training with Miss Eins like?”
“What did Miss Eins says?”
When I got back to work, No. 32 and No. 39 came charging at me from left and right and ask me.
Both of you, why so curious?
I gently told them.
“Actually, I didn’t do special training with Miss Eins.”
“That’s too bad.”
They seem to have lost interest. Should I tell them who I did special training with?
“But instead I did special training with Lord Null.”
Both of them suddenly came close up to me with tremendous momentum.
I’m surprise to see a never seen speed before.
“Lord Null? That Lord Null?”
“You did a special training with Lord Null?”
You guys, why do you want to know so much?
So to say, until now, only No. 30 and above did special training with Lord Null.
In other words, I’m the only out of ordinary Automata who did special training with Lord Null.
“There is no mistake it was Lord Null himself. Yes we did but only for three times.”
After answering their question, both of them look at me enviously.
“To speak of our lord, Lord Null.”
“The master of this mansion.”
“By the names of four who were created to serve only the supreme one!”
“Did you really practice with the Lord Null?!”
Both of them came close to me while seemingly taking turns when speaking.
“Yes. I did a special training with the supreme one who created me, the Lord Null.”
When I’m about to slowly retreat, accidentally, I made a sound by hitting the bucket with my feet.
During the moment, I remembered that I was not working and return to my work immediately.
“So, what did Lord Null says?”
While I was working, No. 32 asked me.
It seems that No. 39 want to know as well. But there’s nothing for me to say.
“Well, when I said『You are strong』, he told me 『it’s because my status is high』.”
“You, that’s a good story you have there, but move your hands properly.”
Suddenly, I heard a voice from behind and I immediately turn around.
There, I found Miss Eins, who seem to be angry.
Needless to say, I was lectured by her after that.
