What appeared in front of us was a black translucent sludge. The gelatinous slime was the same slime we had seen on the first level.
“It’s the first time we’ve seen it outside the first floor.” (Haru)
“That’s right. Well, it looks a little different.” (Kei)
The slime was blacker and slightly larger than the one on the first floor. It moves very slowly. It’s not surprising that it’s not always as fast as it should be when it’s moving at full speed, so we have to be careful.
“Haru. couldn’t do it earlier because I was in a hurry, but I’ll ask you to use [Inspection].” (Kei)
“Oh, that’s right. [Inspection]. [Inspection]?” (Haru)
Haru repeatedly chanted [Inspection], but each time she does she became more confused. Meanwhile, the slime was steadily approaching.
“What happened Haru? Is there a problem with the status?” (Kei)
“Well, it looks like [Inspection] is being rejected. [Inspection]. Yeah, it really is.” (Haru)
If you take a closer look at the slime at the moment of Haru’s [Inspection], you’ll see that it shakes a little bit, although it’s hard to tell because it was already gelatinous. However, there was a slight glow whenever it happens.
Aside from the shaking, a slight glow can be seen once it activates the skill. If it’s magic, it should be a magic circle. If it’s a skill, you can tell by the light when it’s activated.
It’s not always easy to tell if it’s a skill, but this time it seemed to be a glowing one.
“It’s specialized on stealth since it hinders [Detection] and [Inspection].” (Kei)
“That’s right, so Stealth?” (Haru)
“No, I think it’s different.” (Kei)
As we were talking and watching the slime, it suddenly shrunk and reduced in volume.
“Oops, [Strong Slash].” (Kei)
It jumps at us at a tremendous speed. However, if you are vigilant, you can easily dodge it. Shifting my body, I attack the slime that has passed by me.
“Oh, brother, good job. That slime is weak.” (Haru)
Haru, too, takes a slight step back to get out of range of the attack and clacks her tonfa as if she’s clapping.
The slime that was sliced open with [Strong Slash] was split in two and moved in a swirling motion. It seems that the slime has little fighting ability as it can be cut so easily.
“Oh, hey. Isn’t it getting bigger?”
The slime that was split into two swelled up as it wriggled and writhed. Both swelled to the size of the original slime, then it slowly come towards us like the original slime.
“Wow, it was split and regenerated into two. I wonder if magic will work.” (Haru)
“Maybe it will. But can you wait for a while? I’ll try to beat it with just physical attacks.” (Kei)
“Okay, be careful.” (Haru)
“Roger that.” (Kei)
The slime compressed itself again and jumped.
Shifting my body, a little and letting the sword swing at the destination of the slime without using any skill. The two slimes that jumped into the blade are torn apart and split into two.
Now there are 4 slimes.
“I’m going to keep at it.” (Kei)
The slimes that started to regenerate were sliced further, but the regenerated slimes seemed to be unable to move and were left to their own devices.
If there are too many slimes, you can catch them with your sword and fling them into the depths of the dungeon, where they will regenerate and return on their own.
No matter how many times you repeat the process, the slimes will not stop splitting and regenerating, and before you know it, you’ll find yourself surrounded by an overflowing sea of slimes. Whenever I tried to jump, I found myself stepping on other slimes, which crushed them and sent them flying in strange directions.
“Brother, is it time for me to use magic? Maybe there is no limit to their regeneration?” (Haru)
“It’s not possible to keep slashing at them, at least, from what I see. It seems that at least it can’t be cut down easily. Physical attacks are not effective with them. Magic, please.” (Kei)
“ I’m not sure if it’s a good idea to use a hammer or something similar to crush it without leaving a trace. Here. [Impact] [Decaple].” (Haru)
Ten spells rained down on the slimes and they exploded.
In the blink of an eye, a large number of slime disappeared, and only a few slimes remained.
“Maybe they are also resistant to magic. I thought I’ve beaten them all. Or is it their regeneration skill? They’re quite formidable.” (Haru)
The remaining slimes had most of their bodies gouged out, but they were slowly recovering. When I saw this, one skill popped into my head.
“Oh, this might work. [Seal].” (Kei)
As soon as I felt a large amount of magic power being consumed, a circle with a radius of about 10 meters was formed around me.
It was the skill I got recently, [Seal].
I hadn’t used it before, but when I tried it, I realized how useless it was. It consumed too much magic power, and if we couldn’t use magic or skills, we wouldn’t be able to use our rear-guard skills.
Instead, the regeneration of the slimes stopped, and after wriggling painfully for a while, they disappeared into a black mist.
It might work in special cases like this, I guess?
“I should have done this from the beginning.” (Kei)
“Well, it’s an experiment.” (Haru)
We looked around and picked up the items that had fallen at the spot where the last slime had died.
“Ah, is it a healing item? Or a poison?” (Haru)
Haru seems to have already used [Inspection] and will she’ll tell me the result soon.
I listened to Haru’s explanation and quietly stored it in my item pouch.
“OK, let’s go?” (Kei)
“ Yeah, I didn’t see anything yet. Let’s go.” (Kei)
Suddenly, we had acquired an incredibly ridiculous potion, and we pretended we hadn’t seen anything as we walked deeper into the dungeon.
