“I’m back.” (Kei)
“I’m home” (Haru)
It’s been two days since we found our father. The next day, we did some paperwork to get passports, and then came straight home to apply for the passports before heading back home. I was surprised at how easy it was to get a passport.
And now we have done all our business and are back home. It wasn’t that long, but it was an exhausting trip. I think what made it so stressful was the fact that we had to endure the agony of travel time.
I saw that the house had not been ransacked, and the lock on the door was not broken. Well, it’s a raggedy lock, so if you kicked it, you could break the whole door, and I’m sure even an amateur could pick it easily. Is that not true? I’ll try it next time.
“Brother, let’s go to the dungeon.” (Haru)
“No, first we have to check if there’s any sign of intruders and have dinner. It’s nighttime. No dungeon.” (Kei)
“Is it no good?” (Haru)
To tell the truth, I’m itching to get into the dungeon too, but it’s a rule we’ve made together, and I know that if I break it once, the next one, and the next one, and so on, will just pile up.
I’ve had a few friends whose wallets were emptied because of it. Well, that’s not important.
I went into the dark basement and turned on the light, but it didn’t come on.
“Brother, you took off the light bulb before we went.” (Haru)
“Oh, yes, I did. Oh, yes, I did. I forgot all about it.” (Kei)
I went back to the first floor and returned to the basement with the bulb and a flashlight. When I illuminated it with a flashlight, it was the same complete garbage house as when we left the house.
I looked around, but there was no sign of any movement. No, I don’t know exactly how the trash was arranged when I left the house, but I’m pretty sure there’s dust on the cardboard and bags.
“Okay, Haru. Let’s clean up?” (Kei)
Since I had turned the basement into a dump, I thought it would be necessary to clean up, but my opinion was outright rejected.
“It’s messed up anyway, so it’s faster to push it into the dungeon.” (Haru)
“So that’s what you mean.” (Kei)
If you leave something in the dungeon for a long time, it will disappear. If I leave it there today, it will probably be gone tomorrow.
I quickly set up a stepladder, installed a light bulb, opened the entrance to the dungeon, and dropped the trash in there.
“I’m going to throw the garbage into the back of the dungeon from the bottom, so drop it from the top.” (Kei)
The amount of garbage was too much to just drop from the top. The place where I dropped the garbage was not inside the dungeon, so there was a good chance that the garbage would not disappear.
After a minute or so of throwing the garbage into the back of the dungeon, the garbage in the basement was completely gone.
Leaving aside the fact that the entrance to the dungeon does not have a status upgrade, so it was just my normal body that did the throwing.
Fortunately, there were no insects or rats in the basement.
“Now, let’s eat!” (Kei)
“I wanted to enter the dungeon.” (Haru)
I patted Haru on the head, who sounded resentful as she watched me close the entrance to the dungeon, and I went upstairs to make dinner.
And the next day,
“Brother, let get going to the dungeon!” (Haru)
Haru was a little more energetic than usual, but she didn’t wake up early, and after a good night’s sleep, I woke her up. It’s been like this ever since. I usually look up information about dungeons in the morning, but I didn’t have anything that I thought I needed to know after the trip on our way home, so I think it’s okay today.
So now I’m cleaning my weapon.
Haru’s weapon is a blunt weapon, so it takes less time to clean and is already ready to go. However, I’m using a sword, so it’s not that easy to finish. I don’t have to sharpen it every day, and I don’t have to be that meticulous about it, so I can finish in about ten minutes.
Once the preparations were done, I quickly changed my clothes and put on my gear while listening to Haru’s urging from right beside me. I feel like it’s been a long time since I’ve worn any serious gear, but it’s strange that it hasn’t actually been that long.
“Come on, let’s go.” (Haru)
“OK, let’s go.” (Kei)
We were going to explore a dungeon for the first time in a long time.
“Brother, today, let’s go around the forest by destroying small groups instead of annihilating everything. I think that would be more fun.” (Haru)
Haru was walking with a happy gait as she decided on the day’s activities. The slime that appeared in front of her was blown away by Haru’s light kick, and then crushed to death.
“Transition, Forest.” (Kei)
We muttered as we arrived at the Transition Area, and descended into the Forest for the first time in a long time. At the same time, information rolled into my mind.
Signs of monsters were detected by my [Perception], they are just small fries. But even that small fry is many times stronger than the feeble monster presence I saw in Hokkaido.
“Still, this is good enough.” (Kei)
These words escaped out of my mouth.
“Hokkaido was too weak.” (Kei)
Haru, holding a tonfa in both hands, began to walk leisurely, her arms twirling both tonfas. I put my right hand on my sword, which is still in its sheath, and follow Haru.
The first to come out is the five wolves, though.
“The first one!” (Haru)
Haru rapidly approaches the first wolf and swings her tonfa, which crushes its bones and blows it away before it has time to avoid her. That was all it took, and the wolf died.
“Good one.” (Kei)
As the second and third wolves rushed in, I cut them all down with my drawing slash.
“Hey, Haru.” (Kei)
As soon as I asked Haru, she swung both her tonfas to silence the wolves.
“Doesn’t this get boring?” (Kei)
Yes, this battle was uninteresting. They’re not even enemies, just a bunch of forest critters. It’s no wonder we’re strong enough to take on a hundred forest monsters at once.
“Yeah. Brother, change of plans [Impact]!” (Haru)
The magic that Haru unleashed hit a nearby tree and destroyed it. Haru declares this while the roaring sound of the trees falling is in the background.
“Let’s cut down all the trees in the forest before we go home.” (Haru)
Only a few hours remained before the forest ceased to be a forest.
“[Chain] on my sword.” (Kei)
“And [Impact].” (Haru)
Every time I hit a tree with my sword, half of the trunk is cut down, and the slash is transmitted to the surrounding trees by the effect of [Chain].
The trees that were cut together are then knocked down by the blast from [Impact].
The sound of a fallen tree causes the monsters that come toward us to die instantly with their necks being cut or their skulls crushed.
The monsters lose their lives one after another, and we siblings are getting better and faster as if there’s an inversely proportional relation between our strengths.
“[Impact] [Decaple] [Separation] [Collapse]” (Haru)
The number of magic used by Haru is increasing one after another, and I am increasing the power and range of effect by using [Chain] and controlling the attack.
“Guga, Guaaahhh—-?” (Rimdobmur)
Look up at the clear sky without any obstruction, we can hear the troubled cry in the sky. The forest under its eyes is disappearing one after another, and it was probably confusing.
Is it because of the dungeon system that it still doesn’t want to attack us?
“But still, there was no nest of Rimdobmur.”
We walked around the entire forest for five hours without finding any Rimdobmur nests. In addition, for some reason, we only found one mysterious human-shaped stone monument.
I tried touching it and pouring magic on it, but nothing happened. I tried to see if it would break if I kicked it, but it didn’t. For the sake of my honor, I’ll just say that I hurt my leg in hunting.
Well, for the time being.
“My whole foot is swollen!” (Kei)
Haru seems happy, so let’s end today’s exploration.
