“Hmm, brother. There’s a door.” (Haru)
“It’s a door. It’s bigger than the door of the Boss Room.” (Kei)
As we walked down the dark, cobblestone street, a large door appeared in front of us. The door, which seemed to be made of metal, was larger than the doors in the boss’s room, and in the dark, we could only vaguely make out the whole picture.
“There were no monsters, right?” (Kei)
“Yep. Maybe there weren’t any monsters here originally.” (Haru)
“I don’t think monsters would just open this door and wander in.” (Kei)
Haru slowly and cautiously approached the door and touched it.
The door slowly opened, and a weak light gradually leaked out from behind it.
“Brother, let’s move back.” (Haru)
Haru stepped back to get some distance from the door and held up the tonfa.
At the same time, I feel something strange leaking out from behind the door.
“It is the same as the egg of Rimdobmur, right?” (Haru)
“It’s much stronger than that.” (Kei)
That unidentifiable something is the same kind of curse from the battle with Rimdobmur and Rimdobmur’s egg. It was as if the intensity of it had been amplified and filled the space.
“Maybe this is the cause of the stampede?” (Haru)
“It’s a possibility. I’m not sure if it had anything to do with us defeating Rimdobmur, so I can’t say. It’s not unrelated. Hmm?” (Kei)
“Ah, the monsters are coming. I guess the only place where there are no monsters is on this side of the door.” (Haru)
I step back from the open door and check the monster with [Perception].
“Humanoid, a little over 1 meter in size. Has a weapon. Goblin?” (Kei)
The shadow of the enemy I recognized from my [Perception] was almost identical to the goblins I had seen on the first floor. The only differences were that it ran faster and had a weapon. Also. I could tell from their presence that they were strong.
“It’s coming!” (Kei)
With an ugly scream, the goblin appeared from around the corner and leaped towards us, his sword glowing in his right hand.
“Take this [Bomb]!” (Haru)
The magic that flew out of Haru’s hand flew straight towards the goblin in the air.
“What the—?!” (Haru)
The next moment, it was sliced by its sword.
Perhaps this goblin is wiser than the monsters that we’ve faced before.
When the goblin that cut through the [Bomb] lands as it is, it takes a clean stance and swung its sword from the side.
“Ah, I’m not sure if this guy is better than me with a sword. Please cover me as I attack.” (Kei)
I intercepted the goblin’s sword with my own, letting the momentum carry the swing, as our swords clashed.
At the exact moment, my sword hits its sword, I forced my arm and pushed it in, forcing the goblin’s sword upward with my arm.
The goblin’s arm is dragged upwards, and I take a step to the side and raise my sword instead of following up with another slash.
“Nice one brother! [Fissure]!” (Haru)
“I’m moving back!”
A crack appears in the space penetrating the goblin. However, it got away from being killed by twisting its body away from [Fissure], it was not enough to kill it.
“Well, even if it got away, you shouldn’t stop moving. [Strong Slash].” (Kei)
The skill in the sword caused the blade to glow, and it sliced through the goblin’s neck.
“You won?” (Haru)
Then Haru kicks the head of a goblin that I slashed. It rolls on the floor before its body turns into a black mist and disappears. There are no drop items.
Using [Perception] to carefully check that there are no monsters around us before we can lower our weapons.
“Well, not only does it have skills but it also has swordsmanship and better physique. Those have now become normal.” (Kei)
“Yep. The speed as it moves is the same as that of a strong monster in the Forest, but if they can avoid or use slash, slow spells may not work against them.” (Haru)
“Because it ran straight from outside the range of [Perception], your ability to search for enemies is far better than mine.” (Kei)
“When I noticed, it was already running towards us, so it was searching at a wider range than my [Detection]’.” (Haru)
“I wish it was just this goblin… Haru, come over here.” (Kei)
“Hmm? What’s wrong?” (Haru)
I noticed a monster has entered the range of [Perception] and called Haru.
It seems that [Detection] is not responding to it based on her reply.
“A monster is coming. It’s a slime with the same size as the first layer. It’s sluggish though.” (Kei)
“Well, my [Detection] is not reacting to it. That means it has [Stealth].” (Haru)
From around the corner where the goblin appeared earlier, I can hear a sloshing sound.
“The first priority is to avoid them for now. If we can attack safely, we’ll do it.” (Kei)
With that reply, a black translucent sludge peeked out from around the corner.
