“Brother, haven’t you collected enough magical power? The puddle is quite big, too.” (Haru)
“Well, it’s barely enough to cover the entire path. Just until we have enough materials, I will then use [Alchemy] to strengthen [Bind]. So, I’d like to save as much as possible for when I do that.” (Kei)
“So, until this trap stops from working?” (Haru)
“That’s right.” (Kei)
After unintentionally creating a molten metal trap, we found a short table and cushion chairs from the living room. We brought some tea, a frying pan, and oil from the kitchen.
The short table and cushions were placed at the entrance to the dungeon, and the frying pan was oiled. Then, the frying pan was placed near the hot, molten metal.
“Haru, I’ll go back to the house.” (Kei)
“Okay, if it looks dangerous, I’ll pick up the frying pan.” (Haru)
I went back up and got some tableware and chopsticks from the kitchen. Then also bringing down a cutting board and a kitchen knife.
“Okay, let’s use the time in between attacks for dinner. Today we’ll have yakiniku.” (Kei)
“Oh good. The frying pan is getting warm. Oh, it’s getting a little too hot.” (Haru)
I borrow Haru’s Item Pouch and took out a lot of meat from inside.
Rimdobmur’s meat. It’s the most delicious meat we’ve ever eaten, and it’s a luxury item that we couldn’t eat much of because we could only get a slab by destroying a part.
“Brother, move faster, so we can cook sooner.” (Haru)
Haru hurries me as moved the knife across the meat. It would be a shame to dispose of the trimmed pieces, but since they were in contact with the ground, we couldn’t just eat them.
I give the thin slices of meat to Haru. Haru then used the chopsticks to grill the meat in the frying pan.
I slid the plate across the table and handed it to Haru, who placed the roasted meat on it in turn. Inside the dungeon, there were the cries and screams of monsters. But the sound of grilling meat echoed through the dungeon.
There was no way that the sound of the monsters was going to dampen my appetite now, and the savory smell of the meat made my stomach growl with hunger.
After a while, the meat would pile up on the plate and we would not need to grill anymore.
Then we sat face to face at the table. We sat down and put our hands together so that we don’t have to turn our backs on the monsters.
“”Itadakimasu!”” (Haru & Kei)
We didn’t have much time, so we didn’t have anything to go with the meat, but Rimdobmur’s meat is still delicious.
Perhaps Rimdobmur’s meat is not yet on the market. The fact that we, poor children, eat a lot of high-quality meat that no one can eat makes the meat even more delicious.
And one more thing.
“I feel like my magical power is recovering faster.” (Haru)
“Oh, that’s probably true. I didn’t know that because I haven’t had the chance to eat so much of this meat before, but could it have that effect?” (Kei)
“Maybe we just didn’t notice it, but other monsters’ meat might have the same effect.” (Haru)
We continued to eat the meat, but no monsters were able to break through the trap. The few monsters that did get past the traps by accident, such as being blown away by other monsters, didn’t even get us up and we just waved our weapons and they died.
It wasn’t until a few minutes later that the monsters that we’re able to get past the traps began to appear. We had already eaten our fill of meat, and it wasn’t until some time later that we finished cleaning up.
Since we had no time to waste, we distributed the skill cards dropped by Rimdobmur and also brought out a small chair that Haru had made earlier as a DIY project, since we didn’t want to kill the monsters on a cushion on the ground.
“Brother, I’m getting more and more unsettled, can you make the trap now?” (Haru)
Haru had stopped using the [Bomb] a while ago and had cooled it down to make it easier to use with alchemy. The puddle of metal has already melted, overlapping and filling the road in small blobs.
“I’ve recovered my magic, also I’ve got plenty of material to work with.” (Kei)
I placed the monster’s horn I had just picked up into the metal mass and placed my hand on it.
“Then, I’ll try using a new spell, because this is a new spell I got when we defeated Rimdobmur.” (Haru)
Haru also turns her Tonfa forward.
“Got it, you’ll shoot magic, while I start making the trap.” (Kei)
Haru takes a quick breath of air and cries.
“[Prison Gate]!” (Haru)
A black ball about the size of marble appeared from the tip of the tonfa, and it flew slowly but straight to the ground ahead, disappearing as if it had been absorbed.
Then, with a buzzing sound, a black light appeared, and as if following it, a black hole spread out. It spread until it covered the entire street and stopped moving.
“Is it some installable magic?” (Kei)
“That’s right. However, it consumes the most magic of all the magic power I have.” (Haru)
“Then I have to work hard. [Bind]!” (Kei)
The thorny vines growing from the ground moved as close as possible blocking the road. And then,
In an instant, the thorns turn into thorns of molten metal. The molten metal combined with the thorns entwined with each other, creating an extremely solid wall.
“Good. This should last for a while.” (Kei)
“Well, I wonder if it will be enough for an hour.” (Haru)
“I hope it’s more than an hour.” (Kei)
Along the path of the dungeon, there is a black hole with no visible bottom, and after jumping over it, there is a solid wall of thorns. This was a trap that was difficult to overcome for even the most casual of explorers, let alone a monster without any sense of intelligence.
“Well, do you want some tea?” (Kei)
“Yes, let’s. If we put the computer on the floor right outside the dungeon, we can watch the video from inside the dungeon.”
The siblings return to their seats and start chatting without paying attention to the monsters that died without even the chance to cry out.
It would be a few hours or even days before the siblings noticed the change in the world.
