Ben-to: New Kingdom Knights 3
“You know Satou, not long after his graduation Masayoshi went on being a knight and saw the decline in the members as they all aged. And not every youngster would meddle with older kids. They found themselves to weak. People started using group tactics or push the owner of the small super to be quick about it.
On top of that he could not be everywhere at the same time. The old fool made one final decision as a knight. To become a God. He left his former job and became an attendant here at the supermarket. To put a half priced sticker on the bento.
Rules are made to be broken but he was righteous through and through and gave everybody a fair chance. And from what I heard from Wizard. So are you Satou and thus Masayoshi must have made his presence known to you. And as I may have mention, it shall then be you who inherit the name of King!
It has been foretold something big was going to happen. Or rather it was Masayoshi who was dancing around his walking stick and smiling that big happy smile of his. If it is you I have faith the right thing will be done.”
The cup was put on the desk and the old man stood up behind bowed down towards Satou and excuse himself. “There be work to be done, so please would you honour this old man and carry on the title of King. To honour the rules and become a example of a true knight.”
Satou couldn’t help but have blush on hi cheeks and felt a slight discomfort after hearing his plead. ‘No, no but someone much stronger than me is more suited to become your successor Master.”
“King, uhmm Satou he has chosen you. He kept an eye on you as he followed you. It has to be you. Please except this destiny and go forth bringing honour back among the fallen.’
Without another word the old man slit past his desk. His movements creating that small breeze to make the receipts flutter. Leading Satou out of his tiny office. With hands folded on his back he stood there in his tracksuit with a slight bend back. His eyes were closed and he had a calm smile stuck to his face.
“Thank you Old man, I will accept, though I am not sure I would have been the right choice.”
-“No need to worry Young King, Arthur has never been wrong before. Now go.” He opened his eyes and so Satou straighten back up from a deep bow before running off through the swinging doors.
As the old man turns he sees Masayoshi stand beside him smiling while leaning on his cane. “Thank you for saving me that day Senpai. He will do fine, won’t he?”
Masayoshi smiled even bigger while patting the old man’s shoulder before vanishing into thin air and leaving behind his echoing voice. “He will be the founder of the New Kingdom Knights.”
