“And? What’s with the farce up to now, was it on purpose?”
“”What do you mean?!”” (Bud, Carl & Tryst)
I sighed and glared at the three.
Those who are C-Rank explorers would never be at risk in the first level.
This is what Irga-san said, and those who have C-rank have at least been able to capture a small labyrinth or have done something equivalent to it.
All three were kneeling stiffly in the middle of the labyrinth, sweating and trying to make themselves smaller.
“No, because Bud says he wants to see Kaoru’s strength.” (Tryst)
“Tryst, you’re just pushing the blaming to me! ‘Kaoru looks weak’, weren’t you saying that before?” (Bud)
“Hey, I didn’t say anything like that! Well, even Carl made a plan to measure Kaoru’s strength by acting weak. That’s worse!” (Tryst)
“What are you talking about? I’ve always been the bad guy. But I care about you, you idiot!” (Carl)
“Okay, do you have anything else to say?”
“”… No, none.”” (Tryst, Carl & Bud)
“If you want to see my strength, say it. Don’t resort to troublesome schemes. If you get injured, you won’t be able to continue you know?”
“”We will.”” (Bud, Carl & Tryst)
“Well, how should I punish you?”
“”If possible, something light, please.”” (Bud, Carl & Tryst)
Kaoru has a slightly sinister smile as he rubs his chin.
At this point, Kaoru thought that it would be a good idea to kill time, he decided to make the three reach the 10th floor using a zombie tactic.
Bud was unable to refuse.
“Won’t we die?” (Bud)
“It’s okay. I will help with the boss if needed.”
Bud felt a little relieved at those words.
It is also because he is also secured with the feeling of having Kaorus’s recovery magic protecting them.
“Now, work as your lives depend on it!”
“”Ye-yes!”” (Bud, Carl & Tryst)
I yell at Bud and company with a grin on my face.
Bud and company traveled through the levels in the shortest route possible.
Most of the monsters that appear are trampled.
Even if they receive damage, the next moment, they are fully recovered and their physical strength is back.
Finally, we reach the boss room on the 10th floor.
Surprisingly, Bud and the other two seem to be enjoying it.
Each of them said that it was the easiest thing they had ever done and that they didn’t feel tired at the least.
“Kaoru, just to be careful. The boss here is King Sahuagin. Be prepared because it’s quite the hard nut.” (Bud)
“Yes. Well, leave the recovery to me.”
“This is where a mage comes in. You guys have to defend me well.” (Tryst)
“”Yeah, yeah.”” (Bud & Carl)
Bud and Carl replied reluctantly.
Boss monsters reoccur every ten levels in this dungeon.
Even if you have already defeated it, the exact same boss will appear to the next group.
So you can’t cheat.
But if the party is more than 6 people, the boss will not appear.
So you can’t proceed further.
When the four of us stood in front of the door, the door automatically opened.
It was a little chilly.
Cold air spread all over the area.
When we enter a round Sahuagin was waiting for us, towering over 2m long, with a big trident in hand.
It has a gold crown on its head. Its round body is green on the top and white on the bottom, it has a carp-shaped mouth.
It had a very annoying face.
I wondered why I was feeling so pissed. Then, I thought deeper, I realized that it resembled the man from the news who had slandered my name when I was on Earth.
It reminded me of the past so much, it made me want to punch it in the face.
“Okay, Carl get its attention!” (Bud)
“Okay! What?” (Carl)
Just as they were about to charge, a gust of wind passed by.
They turned around to see what happened, but Kaoru was gone.
Then, from the direction of King Sahuagin, they heard a huge crash and the sound of something shattering.
Tryst was startled with her jaw was comically hanging.
They looked at King Sahuagin and saw that its scales, which were said to be harder than diamonds, had been shattered into bits.
And the culprit was Kaoru.
He walked back to them with a refreshed look and a wide smile.
“Ahhh, the stress is all gone.”
“Eh? Kaoru, what did it do to you? What a refreshing smile, as if you were done after being constipated for a week!” (Bud)
“No, it resembled the face of an absolutely annoying guy.”
“I’ve never seen an idiot that can blow away the scales of King Sahuagin!” (Carl)
“Wow… Oh no, it’s still twitching. How disgusting, is it still alive…?”
That was my current strongest punch.
I enhance my body and use it to attack but it can recoil and hurt me too, this is only the second time I’ve used it.
Last time, my arms were pretty messed up, but I can now properly control my power, it will no longer become like that.
“[Wi-wind Magic – Gust]” (Tryst)
With an awkward chant, Tryst unleashed her magic.
There was a smashing sound, and the King Sahuagin became particles of light and disappeared.
It looked like it was crying, but I didn’t mind it.
“Kaoru, you’re really out of the norm.” (Bud)
“I’ve never heard of a human being who had blown off the scales of King Sahuagin! No… I’m sure the evil-eye witch blew it off with enhancement magic… just like you!” (Tryst)
“Diarra-san? Well, I received her guidance before.”
“Hey, you’re a disciple of the Evil Eye Witch! …I’m convinced now that Kaoru is really out of normal people. I longed for that person and became a mage too. This is great, Kaoru. Please introduce me~” (Tryst)
For some reason, the conversation moved and I was suddenly promoted to a disciple.
Though, I wonder how strong Diarra-san is that they were convinced easily.
The three of them don’t seem willing or able to listen, but I reminded them once again that I had just received some guidance from her.
After that, we went and mapped the 11th until the 15th levels.
The enemies were pretty much the same, but they became stronger.
“Okay, is this enough for today?” (Bud)
“It was a lot easier today because we didn’t spend any time at that King Sahuagin this time.” (Carl)
“Thanks, Kaoru! It’s really amazing.” (Tryst)
“Well, don’t talk about me too much okay. I don’t like hassles and it’s a nuisance.”
“Don’t worry. If we tell anyone about this, our credibility will suffer.” (Bud)
“I see. Then, if any of this gets around, and I hear about the three of you and I will crush you.”
A devilish smile spreads from Kaoru’s face.
And it is scary how he is saying this casually.
No, they are scared to even actually think about it.
The three made a vow in their hearts that they would do everything in their power to not get on his bad side.
Bud took out a glowing blue stone from his item box and smashed it on the ground.
The stone shattered, and the blue powder spread out forming a magic circle.
