“But the monsters keep coming, don’t they?” (Haru)
“That’s right. It’s starting to get troublesome.” (Kei)
We managed to kill all the monsters that had accumulated at the entrance of the basement. We could not go up to the house without leaving such monsters that were also wielding swords and were constantly being replenished.
However, the monsters were not interesting to hunt because they were only small fries that could be killed by kicking them rather than wielding a sword, and even if you looked at the experience value, it was only a few measly drops.
In addition, the monsters we’re facing are from the second floor. In the dungeons, only monsters from the fifth layer drop items.
What we’re doing now is to keep the monsters off the ground and to keep them from destroying our house. There is no benefit to us in hunting monsters. We are only doing it because we know that if we don’t hunt them, we will suffer a great deal of damage.
“How annoying.” (Haru)
As she mutters, Haru doesn’t even look surprised. She just kicks off the approaching monster without even looking behind.
“Brother, can’t you set a trap with your [Bind]? That would be easy, right?” (Haru)
Well, it would be, if I could. Still, my Magical power is gradually being replenished. I might be able to shoot a few shots of [Bind]. But that was no good.
“[Bind] won’t last long. If I don’t change it into another material using [Alchemy], once the magical power disappears it will also disappear in a blink of an eye.” (Kei)
“Then, you should just use [Alchemy]. The width of the path is narrow enough you’re your amount of magical power, right?” (Haru)
Haru leans her head toward the monsters and she swung the tonfa in her hand with all her might. Not only are the monsters hit directly by Tonfa, but also the monsters nearby are blown away by the impact and die. In front of Haru, not a single monster remained.
“I don’t have the materials I need. I can’t do it without the proper items even if I can us [Alchemy].” (Kei)
“In that case.” (Haru)
Haru blows away the approaching monster again and mutters, oh.
“This is because we can’t get items.” (Haru)
“That’s right.” (Kei)
Just by moving my body forward and swinging my sword, the nearby monster will die. Still, it’s not enough to empty the path, and I can see the next monster coming in without pause.
“At this pace, monsters from the 5th floor onwards will soon come. We just have to have patience until then.” (Kei)
“That’s right. We shouldn’t use magic because we want to save our magical power.” (Haru)
“If we don’t use [Bind] and [Alchemy] wastefully, we won’t be overwhelmed.” (Kei)
“Yeah, take this!” (Haru)
Then Haru grabs the approaching Kobold, and she throws it at the monster behind it.
The Kobold went flying in the air screams and pushing back other monsters, and the impact causes them to pop off and die.
“Hmm, this is inefficient. It seems faster to swing the weapon.” (Haru)
“That’s right. But I want a range attack method that doesn’t use magical power.” (Kei)
I’m worried, but there is nothing I can do with no items and while we’re trying to preserve our magical power.
“Oh, brother. There’s an item drop.” (Haru)
While I was thinking about this, the monster I killed dropped a fur.
“So, we are almost there. If we can find metallic materials, I can use [Bind] and [Alchemy]. Then you can rest. Haru, let’s go!” (Kei)
I swung my sword as I took another step forward. I turned my gaze away from the monster I had slashed, kicked the floor, kicked the wall, jumped over the monsters, and kicked the ceiling. I spun my body around and landed on top of the monster, crushing it in the process.
“Brother, go!” (Haru)
As Haru swings Tonfa around, the monsters that were near Haru are blown away toward me. At the same time as I landed, I tucked my legs as much as I could, swinging my sword while rotating my body sideways, and jumping again.
All the monsters on our side have disappeared from where I was earlier, and items are scattered there.
“Hurry up!” (Kei)
“Okay, Brother.” (Haru)
Immediately open the Item Pouch and collect only metallic materials such as horns and fangs while slashing the approaching monsters. Skins and similar items will not be used because they are less useful with large magical power consumption, so we cannot use them.
“Brother, did we get everything?” (Haru)
“We took everything except for the ones that are increasing in number right now. I’d like to have more. Maybe these are enough.” (Kei)
“Okay, it’s my turn. I’ll use a little magic since I recover magic power faster than you.” (Haru)
When Haru comes out in front of me, she takes out the metal material that he just collected from the Item Pouch.
“Because I don’t need to use magic that much. Let’s try [Bomb] with less power.” (Haru)
Is it because of Haru’s [Magic Manipulation? That [Bomb] has its explosive power suppressed, as it explodes over Haru’s hand. No, is that even an explosion?
“Yeah, success. I thought I could do it because explosions are fundamentally the same as combustion, but it was more difficult than I imagined.” (Haru)
The [Bomb] that flew out of Haru’s hand went on to envelop the metallic material on her hand. When Haru opened her hand, the material fell while being wrapped in the flames of [Bomb], and at the same time it hit the ground, it burned.
Behind us, the monsters are blown away by the [Magic Bullets] that were stealthily used.
What was left after the material that received [Bomb] as it fell on the ground was a metallic puddle. The metallic materials of low-level monsters are soft and have a low melting point.
As she draws a line with her tonfa to cut the puddle of melted material on the ground, we will be able to produce a number of metal plates.
Haru, who suddenly stuck out her hand, froze as if she remembered something, then she blows away a monster with her tonfa and then turns to face me.
“Brother, is there a way to harden the metal?” (Haru)
I let out a sigh at Haru’s question. I wondered if she hadn’t thought that far ahead.
Certainly, if you can turn the molten metal made by Haru solid, you can mold it into a weapon and throw it to defeat monsters. However,
“No, you see.” (Kei)
I grabbed Haru’s hand, as kept smashing the monsters. Then I pulled her behind the puddle of molten metal. Letting the monsters move and run towards us
“It can become a trap.” (Kei)
“Oh, we made a trap brother.” (Haru)
Monsters are do not have fear. Even if they know that it is a trap, if there is no other way, they will push through the trap. Especially low-level monsters.
“There are many monsters with fur.” (Kei)
The wolves’ feet, which set foot in the melted metal, burned from the heat of the metal. They soon were engulfed in flames. But, sooner or later they will put themselves out. However, what burns is not their body, what burns them is the floor itself.
If Haru heats the metal in regular intervals and melts it, the monster will die but the leather item drops will burn and disappear. And the metal item drops will melt, expanding the molten metal puddle.
“For the time being, until this trap can no longer be used. My magical power will be preserved.” (Kei)
I also put in the collected metal items and melt them.
“Haru, I’m going up the house, so make the trap bigger. I’ll bring down a chair and something to eat.” (Kei)
Moving back, I opened the entrance and returned to our house, and from behind, I heard a cheerful shout, “[Bomb]!”
