I can hear a voice from somewhere. As, I was being shaken.
“Brother, brother.” (Haru)
Oh, did Haru come to wake me up? that’s unusual. I’m always the earlier to wake. Haru was terrible in waking up in the morning.
I’m going to get up soon. Anyway, every part of my body aches. Maybe it’s because I slept in a hard place.
Hmm? A hard place?
“Oh, I’m. Where are we?” (Kei)
The place where I was sleeping was a cavity surrounded by rocks. At its center was the spiral staircase, also made of rock.
“Well, I don’t remember. What happened? Help me understand.” (Kei)
I think deeply for a few moments causing Haru to look panicked. But I soon remembered.
“I’m sure I was blown away by the flying dragon before losing consciousness.” (Kei)
“Brother, I’m glad. You remember. I don’t think I’ll have a hard time explaining. How are you feeling?” (Kei)
For the time being, I got up and stretched. There was a popping sound from my body. Probably from the stiffness, but it’s just a sound that means nothing, so in words, my body just enjoys producing sounds.
“No problem. I slept in a hard place, so my body is stiff, but that’s it. So what time is it now?” (Kei)
Taking the pocket watch out of the bag and I check the time. The hands of the clock have stopped. I tried turning the screw, and it didn’t seem to be broken. That means.
“Haru, we’re going home now. We’ve slept too much.” (Kei)
My pocket watch can keep running for at least 24 hours. But It’s stopped. In addition, I am pretty hungry. This is what it means,
“We may have slept for more than 24 hours.” (Kei)
I started hurriedly prepare to go back home without giving a long explanation. It’s going to be hard to walk on an empty stomach, so I drank a bottle of potion instead. Haru does the same.
Even if I say that we are going home in a hurry, we just have to go up the long stairs and make a transition at the 15th-floor exit. By the way, the ax of the Minotaur that I left behind was gone.
When I moved to the first layer, nothing happened and we came back home. The time is 3 in the afternoon. We left home yesterday at 10 in the morning, so we were in the dungeon for 29 hours.
“I’m back.” (Haru)
As soon as Haru declares it, she removes her equipment and goes to the table.
“Brother, please hurry and make food.” (Haru)
“I know.” (Kei)
I’m hungry too, so I don’t want to waste time, so I fry steak even though it’s just noon. Naturally, I used the meat from the dungeon.
Lightly seasoned with salt, it feels more delicious than usual now that I’m terribly famished. I continued to fry additional vegetables and silently mix some for a vegetable salad. We finished the meal in a flash.
We clean up the dishes while chatting lightly about nothing. And before we could say anything to each other, we were back at the table.
“So, brother. I’m sorry for the dangerous experience yesterday. So about what I found out.” (Haru)
“Ah, yesterday I did agree with the suggestion, so there’s nobody who was to blame. So about what you found from [Analysis].” (Kei)
“Yes. The [Analysis] skill allows you to see the status and description of any object up to a certain range.” (Haru)
“Well, you’ve done it many times. So.” (Kei)
“With monsters, you can see their strength, regardless of how strong they are.” (Haru)
“Oh, I don’t think I heard that before. Was it the sum of strength and magic?” (Kei)
I’ve heard information about strength. We are about 150 in total for both Magic Capacity and Strength
It seems that the Minotaur’s have 160. However, since both humans and monsters use weapons, it is not very helpful.
“So, in other words, the Strength of the flying dragon was strange?” (Kei)
“Yeah. This is the result of using analysis on the flying dragon.” (Haru)
Haru quickly writes it on a piece of paper and shows it to me.
[T/N: リムドブムル or Rimudobumuru. I don’t know if this name is based on anything.]
“Hey, this is true. I didn’t make any mistake.” (Haru)
“This must be wrong.” (Kei)
The value of its Strength was too huge it made me say it.
“That’s not the case. Even at 105, we can win by ourselves.” (Haru)
“That’s right. We shouldn’t feel like we can win because of pure Strength. So far, the total strength is about three times the level. By the time we have the same value as the flying dragon, we will have to be at level 350.” (Kei)
“We can’t count on our strength. But we have skills and magic. And weapons can reduce the difference.” (Haru)
“Well, it’s hard to beat in our current state, so that’s what the 16th to 20th-floor bosses are like.” (Kei)
“Does it mean that the 16th until the 20th floor happens in the forest?” (Haru)
“Most likely.” (Kei)
Unexpectedly, I feel disheartened in various ways. But we can still do the same routine. We were so absorbed in being entertained by the dungeon exploration that we could never quit dungeon exploration.
“Will we go to the 16th floor tomorrow?” (Kei)
“Yeah. Finding item drops is fun.” (Haru)
Before we go back to our usual routine, I call a certain place.
“Hey, Kizaki-kun. It’s true that there aren’t many customers here in the countryside, so I can manage the shifts alone. However if you can’t come, you have to contact me immediately.” (Manager)
“Manager. I’m sorry I didn’t get in touch with you.” (Kei)
I lost consciousness, and of course, I skipped my shift at my part-time job that was supposed to be today.
“Eh, Hiya! [Fissure]” (Haru)
Multiple monsters are torn apart by [Fissure] that could also tear through space. Monsters who die shortly after resisting raised a death wail. The reason why this happened was because of some circumstances and good luck.
We were back on the 16th floor again. And one more thing I noticed. There was a magic circle in the corner of the cavity at the end of the stairs down to the 16th floor. Of course, it’s a Transition Magic Circle. I used it to find out where I was and found that it was the entrance to the forest. That’s right.
The 16th to 20th floor of the forest may be collectively called Forest. While discovering such a thing, we set out to explore the Forest.
Many of the enemies that appeared in the Forest were different.
The wolf monster had brownish fur instead of the gray one that had appeared before, and it was a little hard to see in the forest. There are also chameleons that aren’t detected with [Perception], let alone see.
Well, there are various types and groups of enemies. And each monster is strong. Their skin was so hard that it couldn’t be defeated with a single blow from a light swing.
There is no choice but to attack their necks one by one. And there’s one more. Haru also made a change. Since Rimdobmur is flying above, it will be difficult if its attention is caught by something.
That’s why I stopped her from using explosive magic, but that would reduce her means of attack, so she did various trials and errors before finding a solution. Haru’s magic attribute has changed. Thanks to that, Haru’s current status is like this.
Skill: Magic / Craft
Magic Attribute: Fissure (Explosion) (Electric)
Magic Capacity: 102
Magic: (Bomb), (Time Bomb), (Impact), Number, (Plasma), Fissure
The magic that can be used has changed due to the change in her Magic Attribute. As seen, the name is [Fissure]. And the power is horrifying. It’s magic that cuts through the enemy including space.
The strength of the magic is irrelevant, and you can’t even resist it unless the enemy’s magic is high. It was an attack that ignored defense. What would happen if such magic could be used? That is the current situation.
“Brother, I’ll go next.” (Haru)
Haru calls out livelier than usual.
“I’m going, but… You’re killing them way too fast. It’s about twice as fast as mine. I wonder if I should use magic too.?” (Haru)
I follow Haru while whispering. I’m not using magic for saying this. The only thing is, even though I’m saying this, I’m not using magic. The only thing I’m using is my [Stealth] skill. It’s cool to sneak up behind an enemy and chop off their head with the machete, and it’s also useful for keeping them from screaming as they die, so I use it a lot.
So I’m okay with the slow rate of subjugating them because of that.
And from there, we just changed our hunting ground to the 16th floor, and our normal life proceeded. There was nothing special to think about, it’s just simple everyday life. But that can’t last for long. Unbeknownst to us, the next problem will probably be closer than we thought.
