"This school is a bit strange," Ritsu said.
"Hmm..." Haru answered. He was wearing small earphones that made him able to communicate with Ritsu easily. He knew that Kamishimo was cheating by using his accomplice to use a camera to check his cards. He knew that there might be a code or something behind the card that was able to be read using an app on the smartphone. He knew that the cheating method was useless now and they were gambling with each other using their ability and luck to win.
"Do you want me to help you to check his card?" Ritsu asked since she could use his phone to read the code on the back of Kamishimo's cards.
"It's alright. You don't need to do that since I can win it by myself," Haru said.
"Be careful. In the last round, you might lose 100 million yen," Ritsu said.
"Thank you," Haru only said.
Kamishimo looked at him while holding five cards in his hands. He couldn't cheat, but it didn't mean that he couldn't win. He knew that once someone was under pressure they wouldn't be able to think straight. "The first bet is 10 thousand yen."
"Good." Haru nodded.
Kamishimo looked at his cards. He had 4, 7, 10, king, and joker. '10 thousand yen.' He decided to use this money to test Haru's ability since this amount of money was very little for him. "I'll go first." He took out the weakest card in his hand.
"Going for the weakest? I'll play an eight, then," Haru said and took out a card from his hand.
"King." Kamishimo had a joker and seven left on his hand. He looked at Haru to see what his next move was.
"Ace," Haru said and took out an ace card.
Kamishimo smiled inwardly and took out his strongest card. "Joker."
"I win," Haru said and showed the card number three to Kamishimo.
For the "Speed President" the joker card lost to the weakest card or the card number three.
Haru took out his last card and won the first round.
Kamishimo clapped his hands and everyone also followed him. "Good! Congratulations on your first win at this school."
"Thank you," Haru said and took out the 10 thousand yen on the table.
"Let us continue for the second round. Remember the rules right?" Kamishimo took out his money.
"Yeah, for each round we'll have to times the bet by 10 times, right?" Haru said.
"That's right, then the next bet is 100 thousand yen, do you have that much money?" Kamishimo asked.
"I have it," Haru said and took out the money.
"Good, let's start the next round," Kamishimo said.
"Here 100 thousand yen." Kamishimo gave his money to Haru.
"Thank you." Haru took the money and asked, "Continue?"
"Of course." Kamishimo smiled, but he couldn't wait to slaughter Haru. "The next match is 1 million yen."
"I know." Haru nodded calmly.
"Good, let's start the next match," Kamishimo said. He could see from Haru's expression that 1 million yen was a small amount of money to Haru. He couldn't wait for the fourth and fifth-round since he knew that it was his chance to turn the table to his side.
"Cash or transfer?" Haru asked.
"I have brought cash," Kamishimo said and took out a bundle of money of 1 million yen.
"You sure love troublesome things," Haru said.
"It's my pocket money. You don't need to think too much," Kamishimo said.
"Is that so?"
"Yeah, anyway, are you ready for the next one?" Kamishimo asked.
"Yeah, 10 million yen, right? I don't bring cash. I'll transfer it to you when you win," Haru said.
"Then, I'll do the same." Kamishimo twitched his lips looking at Haru who was expressionless.
"....." No one said anything since this gamble was too crazy to them. They could see that both Haru and Kamishimo could take out a large amount of money without blinking their eyes.
Kamishimo looked at his card and took out his first card. "Five."
Kamishimo took an ace card and said, "Ace."
"Joker then three." Haru placed the rest of his card and said, "I won once again."
10 million yen!!!!
Everyone sucked a deep breath when they looked at Haru. It was his first time gambling at this school yet he had won 10 million yen easily. They saw this handsome young man who had won more money than them who had stayed in this school for a few months.
Haru sighed and said, "Don't you give up? You have lost four times."
Kamishimo frowned when he heard Haru's words. "Isn't it you who is afraid for the next match?"
"Are you sure? The next bet is 100 million yen. Even though I have it, you're not necessary to have that much money," Haru said.
Kamishimo snorted and said, "Don't run away! This is the last round! The moment you lose this match to me then I'll make you grovel on earth similarly to this guy under me."
Haru sighed and said, "But I have won more than 10 million yen from you."
"I know that you're cheating, right?" Kamishimo said.
"Cheating, how?" Haru raised his eyebrow.
They weren't sure how Haru could win four times in a row and some of them even thought that he was cheating, but they didn't know how to answer how he had cheated in this match since it was his first time and no one had told him about this match.
Haru shook his head and said, "Don't accuse me with such slander. If you don't want to continue then let's stop. I have gotten quite enough money from you."
"It's because I have given you a chance to have it. This time, I'll win from you," Kamishimo said while pointing his finger at Haru.
"Is that so? Then, don't cry when you have lost to me," Haru said.
"Let's see whether you can do that," Kamishimo said and took his card since he was the "sc.u.m".
They thought that this gambling match would be exciting or made them beat their hearts very fast. Only it was quite fast and very dull as if it was a normal result that it was happening.
Kamishimo's face had whitened when he saw the result of the last round of the gamble.
"100 million yen, do you need time to prepare the money?"
No one said anything and they looked at Haru with surprise, reverence, happiness, and amazing expression on their faces. They didn't see how Haru's emotions changed when he learned that he had won 100 million yen. They saw his calm expression with a gentle smile, but that smile was very evil in front of Kamishimo, who had lost more than 100 million yen.
This school was merciless and no one would pity the loser, but they had to admit that they were pitying Kamishimo since this guy had lost 100 million yen.
Kamishimo took a deep breath and said, "Give me three days." He stood up and went back to his seat.
"This is your first day and you have received 100 million yen!"
"I'll use 3 million yen to treat all of you here," Haru said. He had gotten this money easily and it didn't really matter to use 3 million to gather minions on this school.
Haru only shook his head and knew that it was his starting line to gather his power at this school. 'What's next?' He thought inside his head about what he should do after this.
