When the muscular man left, Elizabeth leant close to Meliodas and read the flyer with him.
Elizabeth: Is the second prize Hawk’s “Balor's Magical Eye” gifted by Ms. Merlin? If it was found there...Does that mean Hawk is there?
Meliodas: Possible, but we need to retrieve Balor's Magical Eye first, for...Hawk will be sad to lose it.
Meliodas: So I’ve decided to join the tournament! ABSOLUTELY NOT because I want to join it!
Meliodas: What’s wrong?
Elizabeth: I’m just delighted to see the fighting spirit in you.
Meliodas grabbed her boobs from behind.
Meliodas: You’ve been paying much attention to me. I’m so touched by that.
The blushing Elizabeth followed Meliodas’s lead to the town. The tournament started right away after Meliodas signed up for the match, who was looked down because of his short height. Then everyone was amazed as Meliodas defeated all the opponents without even moving a step.
Very soon, Meliodas made his way to the final.
Meliodas: “Sigh. I didn’t encounter any strong rivals, but I can get Balor’s Magical Eye back by losing this match.”
Host: Here we are, the long-waited final! Please welcome our supernova Meliodas and the adorable Plumpy with a big applause!
Plumpy: I’ll win this for the champion prize, the huge red snapper. Meow!
Meliodas: “That’s great then. I’ll let her have the champion.”
Host: Anyone who cannot fight or drops out of the stage will lose. Here we go! Three, two, one, GO!
Plumpy: Show me what you’ve got! That delicious fish is mine...Ouch!
Plumpy stumbled hard on the stage right at the beginning of the match, surprising Meliodas and all the audience.
Plumpy: Aw I’m starving...I’m feeling a bit drained, haha...Ouch!
Soon as Plumpy stood back up in embarrassment, she was tripped by a rock again, causing a huge bruise on her head.
Plumpy: Ouch, it hurts! Why did I stumble again and again? Boohoo...Is it because I haven’t eaten anything since the beginning of the tournament...
Audience: Get yourself together!!! We didn’t spend our money for this joke!!!
Meliodas: “Huh? Things are getting complicated now. I was planning to taunt her, so that she would punch me and I could fly out of the stage.”
Meliodas: “I guess I'm not allowed to do so with the situation…”
While Plumpy was staggering her way, Meliodas stretched his arms with a confident smile.
Meliodas: “Let’s pretend to give her a hard blow and fall off the stage.”
Plumpy: I...I won’t give in! For the big delicious red snapper!
Meliodas: Let me finish this now!
Meliodas said his pretentious line and attacked Plumpy, who moved before he could pretend to be blasted away.
Plumpy: This...This smell!!! Isn’t it the grilled squid!!!
Just when Meliodas was an inch away from Plumpy, a loud yell sounded behind him. Following next, Plumpy jumped out of the stage one step faster than Meliodas, pouncing on a man chewing a grilled squid.
Before Meliodas could react, Plumpy had already stepped out of the stage.
Host: WHOAAA! We have the winner——! Plumpy, who was unable to resist the temptation of grilled squid, stepped out of the stage!
Host: I now announce that our champion is Meliodas! He gets the two hundred kilogram red snapper!
Audience: Huh——Are you playing with us!? What kind of crappy match is this!? Refund the ticket——!
