After separating with Neptune, for now I brought Cerberus back to my mansion.
[Is, is this where human-san is living] .
[Astonishing……Is human-san perhaps a great and famous human] .
[I wonder too.] (Ryouta)
I don’t think I was famous, the only thing I had that the people in this world don’t have was the only one skill(Unique Skill) that I hold, and only just recently did I get slightly famous.
[Anyways let’s go in first.
I hope someone’s at home.] (Ryouta)
Everyone should be in the dungeon right about this time, while thinking so I brought Cerberus inside the mansion.
[Eh Why did Yoda-san came back at this kind of time desu] (Emily)
I encountered Emily while entering from the hallway.
Emily wasn’t holding a hammer but instead a broom.
[I was wondering around Shikuro city instead of diving into the dungeon.
How about Emily] (Ryouta)
[Thanks to the Teleportation room, I got to finish early and arrived home desu, hence with the remaining time I thought of cleaning the house nodesu.] (Emily)
[I see.Thanks again Emily.
Due to Emily’s influence, our home has once again become warm which brings me joy.] (Ryouta)
[I like doing it so it’s only natural nodesu.] (Emily)
[Still, thanks for always helping out.] (Ryouta)
Emily looked down as she was embarrassed.
According to her, she said she liked doing it but it felt like she was embarrassed just by being praised.
This figure was extremely adorable and I wanted to praise her even more, but I felt the presence of Cerberus sneaking behind me, so I thought of solving this problem first.
[This is great since Emily’s here, I need to go somewhere after this, so in the meantime could you take care of it first] (Ryouta)
[Take care desu Whatever Yoda-san request, I’ll do it with the utmost ability nanodesu.] (Emily)
It’s this doggy.] (Ryouta)
[Oh it’s a doggy nanodesu——It’s huge nanodesu!] (Emily)
[It’s unnaturally huge.] (Ryouta)
When I called Cerberus to come inside, he was already small when near the entrance, but it shrunk further by Emily’s words.
[A big doggy nanodesu.] (Emily)
[N, nice to meet you…..] .
[It can even talk desu] (Emily)
This dog is actually a monster.
Thus, before anyone could kill it I decided to protect it.] (Ryouta)
[I see nanodesu, Please leave it to me nanodesu.] (Emily)
While still holding onto the broom, Emily did a guts pose.
It was the familiar and adorable Emily, but when she did that guts pose and I picture the broom being a hammer, I had no worries relying on her.
[Yo, you’re not scared of me Though I’m a rogue monster.] . (TLN: Here he uses boku for the first time so I’m gonna refer to it as a male from now on)
[If it’s monster, we have more in here nodesu.] (Emily)
She’s talking about Alice huh, though that felt somewhat different than this.
[Then I’ll leave him to you, I’ll come home as soon as I can.] (Ryouta)
[Yes desu.] (Emily)
Leaving Emily to take care of Cerberus, I went out the mansion and head towards the direction of the Dungeon Association.
The various procedures took about an hour.
After explaining the circumstances to Clint, I talked about the story that Neptune brought up.
Thus, I had permission to keep the rogue monster, and the proof was the collar that I received, afterwards I went back to the mansion.
Entering the mansion, I began looking around.
When I arrived at the kitchen, I could see the figures of Emily and Cerberus.
Cerberus was sitting beside Emily and strongly wagging his tail.
Because his figure was quite huge, the momentum of the tail was quite severe.
It might even break some bones of an adult, it was that severe.
[I’m back.] (Ryouta)
[Welcome home Yoda-san nanodesu.] (Emily)
[Welcome home human-san.] .
Emily and Cerberus greeted me.
Emily had her usual sweet and adorable smile, but Cerberus came to me and his tail immediately stopped wagging.
It’s not as though he needed to be vigilant when I’m here, unlike for Emily he did not show any signs of alertness.
I wonder why.
[Listen to this human-san, Human-san’s food were extremely delicious.] .
I looked at where Emily was standing, as she nodded with her little head.
After Yoda-san has left, the doggy was apparently hungry as his stomach was growling so I made something for him nodesu.] (Emily)
[It was a taste that one could only dream of.] .
[Aah, I see.] (Ryouta)
The mystery has been solved.
As I thought Cerberus who was looking at Emily was wagging his tail again.
What’s more the speed increased, this time with an enchanted face.
It looked like Emily had bait which made the tail wagged like crazy.
Can’t be helped, Emily’s food had already reached narcotic grade.
It’s just good, it’s just really delicious and warmths one heart.
But you would keep wanting more, eating it nonstop.
It seemed that the foundation had already changed to a mystery grade.
That is the greatness of Emily’s food.
So I understood why Cerberus would wagged his tail till it could come off any second.
[Speaking of, where did Yoda-san went desu] (Emily)
[The Dungeon Association.
I was requesting to rear this doggy.
Since it’s a rogue monster, I thought it was under the jurisdiction of the Dungeon Association.] (Ryouta)
[That’s true desu.] (Emily)
[Then, he made a collar for him but…..First we have to decide a name for him.
Once you decide on a name and let him wear it, the name would magically appear on display.] (Ryouta)
I took out the collar, and pointed at the white part which was in the middle of the collar.
[You don’t have a name right] (Ryouta)
Please give me a name human-san.]
Before that I have something to confirm.] (Ryouta)
[I have already came up with two names but I don’t know which to choose.] (Ryouta)
[What should we do desu] (Emily)
[Follow me.] (Ryouta)
As I said that I walked away.
Bringing Emily and Cerberus, we went to the garden outside of the mansion.
After stopping I turned back to the two person, and took out a ball that I had purchased in the city in advance.
The size was similar to a baseball.
[What are you gonna do with that Yoda-san] (Emily)
[I’ll throw it.
I threw the ball at a random direction.
There wasn’t any technique or speed to my throw, I just threw it aiming at some random mountain.
As I did so, Cerberus immediately chased after the ball.
[It’s doggy nanodesu.] (Emily)
[Yeah, it resembles more of a dog.] (Ryouta)
[What is the meaning of this nanodesu] (Emily)
[I wanted to make it clear of whether his root was a dog or a wolf.
Depending on that I’ll change my way of naming him.](Ryouta)
[I see, so you brought this ball to test the doggy nanodesu.] (Emily)
After explaining it to Emily, she understood immediately and right on time Cerberus brought the ball back.
He sat right in front of me, and with the ball on his mouth he looked up at me.
Moreover he was wagging his tail, he seemed pleased.
Though it wasn’t as crazy as the reaction from Emily.
I kept it a secret that Emily’s food transcends the instincts of the dog.
Good boy.] (Ryouta)
Receiving the ball, I patted Cerberus’s head.
He had a satisfying look, and the wagging of his tail increased further in speed.
[So from now on your name shall be called Cerberus.] (Ryouta) (TLN: Kill me Ryouta, worst naming sense.
Oh and btw, the cerberus from before was サーベラス and the cerberus he used now is ケルベロス.
It’s the same **, so don’t bother.)
After saying so, I helped him wear the collar.
Immediately, the collar shone, and the word was written.
[So it’s Cerberus desu] (Emily)
[It roughly translates to the watchdog of hell.
Since the word Cerberus has has the word [rus] in it, so I thought of the closest sounding word.] (Ryouta)
[Thank you so much!] (Cerberus)
Cerberus looked extremely satisfied with the collar on his neck.
[By the way Yoda-san, if he was a wolf what would you name him nodesu] (Emily)
[Maybe Loki or Holo.
Both are names of legendary wolfs.] (Ryouta) (TLN: When I searched Holo, I found the anime or 狼と香辛料)
[I see nanodesu.
Even if it’s doggy or wolf, there’s a lot of [Lo] in their names nodesu.] (Emily)
It’s not as though that’s the reason, but I guess if Emily was convinced then it’s fine.
I turned around to Cerberus(With a S sound) which is now called Cerberus(with a Kh sound).
[Wear this collar at all times.
Other people would not be able to attack you if you have this.] (Ryouta)
[Is it such an amazing collar nanodesu] (Emily)
[It’s proof that I’m the owner.
If he wears this and Cerberus went berserk, then it’s my responsibility, and by wearing this if other adventurers were defeated it will turn hostile.] (Ryouta)
[Then it’s safe nanodesu.
I’m sure there’s nobody that exists in Shikuro would declare war against Yoda-san nodesu.] (Emily)
I wish that were the case.
[Hoe…….Human-san is indeed an astounding person.] (Cerberus)
[Yoda-san is awesome nodesu, the strongest in Shikuro desu, the number one most profitable, and the number one fastest to solve problems, these 3 kingdoms nanodesu.] (Emily)
Cerberus’s impression of me has increased.
His eyes were clearly dyed with respect.
[I was being picked up by such a human.] (Cerberus)
[While we’re at it why not change the way you speak nodesu.
Since Yoda-san is taking care of you, calling him human-san sounds weird nodesu.] (Emily)
[Th, that’s right.
Etto…..What should I do, how should I call you] (Cerberus)
[Call him Master nodesu.] (Emily)
Emily spoke before I could even say anything.
[Since he is an amazing person okay doggy, so calling him Master is okay nodesu.] (Emily)
[No wait a minute, calling me Master is a little.] (Ryouta)
Cerberus was repeating the word over and over again until he’d gotten used to it.
You don’t have to take it seriously you know, as I thought, but I realized something.
Cerberus’s tail was wagging like crazy.
Left right left right, it was the strength of a home run batter using his full strength to swing, and you could even hear the sound barrier breaking each time he swings his tail.
While calling me with an innocent face, the tail was beating up and down from the ground with great momentum.
Don! It roared and the ground was slightly dent.
Are you that happy to call me master Was it because dogs are alpha and they are glad to be kept by people with high position
Well, it’s not like I mind it.
Rather it may be convenient to call me master.
Because it’s a monster that could talk, if he called me master when we’re outside it would appeal to various people, and the other adventurers would not dare to attack.
This is the dogeared beastman, and with it’s childish appearance calling me [Master], but it’s a monster so there isn’t any problem.
Go and catch it once more.] (Ryouta)
I said as I threw the ball, and Cerberus chased after the ball with a speed like the wind.
[It seemed to be more happy when I gave him food nanodesu.
As expected of Yoda-san nanodesu.] (Emily)
[We’ll have to introduce him to everyone later.] (Ryouta)
[I feel that everyone will be pleased that our family is increasing desu.] (Emily)
[I guess so.] (Ryouta)
While anticipating the reaction of my teammates, I looked at the appearance of Cerberus who was chasing after the ball.
Cerberus went to the edge of the garden where the ball landed, but for some reason, he started sniffing on the ground.
[Is something there nodesu] (Emily)
[Let’s go and take a look……Hey Cerberus, what’s wrong] (Ryouta)
Please let me dig here.] (Cerberus)
Cerberus nodded heavily.
While thinking of an olden story, he started digging the ground.
[There couldn’t be something over here.
Supposed there was then it would’ve turned into a rogue monster.] (Ryouta)
[That’s okay nanodesu.Even though there’s no one living in this mansion previously, but the shop registered people to send them and patrol this area so no rogue monsters would appear.] (Emily)
[I see.] (Ryouta)
While convinced with the common sense of this world, he continued digging.
After digging down about 50cm, we found something.
It was something you would occasionally see in games and other, it was a special item, a Jewel.
[——Wait a jewel!] (Ryouta)
What he dugged up was something I was looking for some time, it might be an item related to Nihonium.
