Inside the mansion, I was leading Emily and Cerberus over to an empty room that was lying around in the mansion.
[What sort of room is this Master.] (Cerberus)
[It’s a storeroom.
Stuffs that we normally don’t use would be put inside here, right Emily.] (Ryouta)
[Yes desu, it’s been properly kept inside this room desu.] (Emily)
Before that let’s check something first.] (Ryouta)
Cerberus had a puzzled look on his face as he looked at me taking out something.
A consumable item that was the size of my palm, it was a portable K-I-A board to check statuses.
If you went to a dungeon you could check it as often as you like, but other than that we could use this consumable item to check it too.
Well it wasn’t really that expensive to begin with, so I bought it as a backup for when we needed it.
I handed it to Cerberus.
[Use this and see.] (Ryouta)
[I understand, like that] (Cerberus)
Using the portable K-I-A board, Cerberus checked his status.
Cerberus’s status were quite weak.
His level cap is still far away since he’s still at level 1, but overall his status were quite low.
Honestly speaking, if I were to fire a normal bullet at him, he might’ve been defeated, that was how weak he was.
[Did you not raise your level.
Have you not defeated anything previously] (Ryouta)
[By defeating you meant the humans If I were to do that, the humans would pay back double the pain to me.] (Cerberus)
[I see, you did mentioned that you were hiding while trying your best to stay alive.] (Ryouta)
While we were talking Emily opened the door and went inside.
Inside the storeroom were various stuff placed around, and all of them were neatly placed and kept in order, there weren’t even a speck of dust found.
Even those mean aunties or mother-in-laws couldn’t complain at such clean and tidy place.
[Yes desu] (Emily)
[Nah, I was just thinking how amazing Emily is.] (Ryouta)
[Is that so nanodesu] (Emily)
Emily had a “I don’t understand” look on her face.
I placed my finger on the wall and dragged it down.
When I lift my finger up, there weren’t even a speck of dust, on the contrary, my finger left a dirt mark on the wall.
As expected of Emily right.
Emily then brought a box from within the room, and inside the box was a huge amounts of crystal.
[We’ve collected a huge sum huh.] (Ryouta)
[Because Yoda-san sent such large amounts everyday so it became like so nodesu.] (Emily)
[What might that be Master.] (Cerberus)
[Instead of explaining, showing it to you would be quicker.
Try holding it.] (Ryouta)
As per what I instructed, Cerberus grabbed at one of the crystals from within the box with his mouth.
Afterwards, the moment the crystal was held, it melted almost instantly.
[Awawa, Ma, Master.
The moment I touched it it disappeared.] (Cerberus)
[Don’t panic, that’s how it’s supposed to be.
Well don’t stop now.
Emily, bring along the rest of it.] (Ryouta)
[Yes desu!] (Emily)
Cerberus who was surprised, and Emily who was doing her best carrying all the rest of the crystals that were stored at the corner of the storeroom.
Even though he had a “I have no idea what’s going on” look on his face, because his Master ordered him to do so, he continued touching(biting) the crystals one after the another, and with that—–absorbed into his body.
Continuing that kind of motion, we emptied 20 boxes in no time.
[Master, it won’t disappear anymore even if I held it.] (Cerberus)
[I guess you’ve capped your level.
Well use this once more.] (Ryouta)
I handed Cerberus the consumable item which was to check your status.
With a fox like face he used the item.
[Hauu! Master, my level has been raised to the max!] (Cerberus)
[So you properly capped out.] (Ryouta)
Yes, the crystal that I asked Cerberus to hold was the EXP crystals.
It was the effect of the ring dropped by Nihonium Dungeon’s Master, when you maxed out your level an EXP crystal would drop so to speak.
Until now, I did not have a reason to utilize it so much, so this was the first time it helped out.
Our newly made dog friend Cerberus, from Level 1 he has maxed his level instantly.
If you become my teammate, you’ll instantly maxed your level.
I thought as this might be the standard when someone joins in the Ryouta・Family.
[Hawa……..Master is amazing…….] (Cerberus)
[Of course, it’s Yoda-san we’re speaking nanodesu, obviously he’ll be amazing nanodesu.] (Emily)
[I’m really fortunate that Master found me and with his kind heart picked me up.] (Cerberus)
Cerberus who was deeply emotional, and said something adorable which doesn’t suit his huge body.
[Though Cerberus can’t go into a dungeon, but please protect this mansion instead.
Please be the strongest pet that won’t shame our family’s name.
Attack if you see any foreign enemy.
This is your master’s order.] (Ryouta)
[Yes! I’ll kill each and everyone of Master’s enemies!] (Cerberus)
Cerberus enthusiastically said, his actual ability wasn’t low.
His ability was strong enough that he could defeat the adventurers from around this area.
[Well next is…..bite me as hard as you can.] (Ryouta)
As I said I rolled up my sleeves and presented my arm.
[Eh Ma, Master’s] (Cerberus)
[Yes, bite it as hard as you can.] (Ryouta)
[Just do it.] (Ryouta)
As I said so, Cerberus looked at Emily with a troubled face as he slowly caught hold of my arm.
He chewed——but his jaw had no power put into it.
It was a sweet bite.
[Put more strength into it.] (Ryouta)
[I cannot bite Master ever.] (Cerberus)
[It is necessary.
I could ask for Emily’s help but Emily’s a little too strong.] (Ryouta)
Since Yoda-san said so, there must be a good reason to it, so just do it desu.] (Emily)
[If you bite with all you got, I’ll ask Emily to make a delicious meal that could die for.] (Ryouta)
A sting was felt on my arms.
The moment I threw a carrot, he took the bait and bit me.
[——-Ha! I, I apologize for my insolence.] (Cerberus)
[You gluttony.] (Ryouta)
I gently stroked the head of Cerberus who repeatedly apologized.
I looked at my arm as it is, the place that was bitten was slightly dented with bite marks, it became white and it hardly returned back to normal.
The skin wasn’t torned but dented.
[So it’s like that.
Alright, I have some place to go now.
Emily, make some delicious meal for Cerberus for the time being.](Ryouta)
What does Cer-chan want to eat desu] (Emily)
[Eh Etto, Uhmm uhmm…..] (Cerberus)
Cerberus had a troubled but a happy look on his face, thus I left him under Emily’s care as I head out of the storeroom.
After going one round, I came back to the mansion.
After searching everywhere, I found Emily and Cerberus in the garden.
Cerberus was beside Emily while wagging his tail round and round, and he was chewing on some bone.
The bone was baked, a little burned but had an appetizing smell like grilled meat.
[Welcome home Yoda-san.] (Emily)
[Welcome home Master.] (Cerberus)
Did you give him something good to eat] (Ryouta)
[Cer-chan seems to like meat and bones so I made him this nanodesu.] (Emily)
[Well it is a dog.
Did you bake the bone] (Ryouta)
[Using the ingredients I decided to bake them nanodesu.
Since seasoning isn’t really good for dogs nodesu.] (Emily)
Hence you baked it.
I thought giving raw bone was fine, but as expected of Emily’s skills.
[When he gnaws at the bone he looks calmed.] (Ryouta)
As such I stood in front of Cerberus, and showed him my arms again.
[Try biting me again.] (Ryouta)
[I understand, Master.] (Cerberus)
He hesitated for a while, but compared to just now he was slightly more used to it.
He then bit the arm that I presented to him.
[How is it.] (Ryouta)
[I can’t bite through it at all.
Master’s arm is really tough.] (Cerberus)
[So you’ve finally raised them up desu] (Emily)
[Well it would be a waste not to raised them to the max.] (Ryouta)
[I see nanodesu.] (Emily)
Cerberus was perplexed, while Emily immediately understood.
Emily would know.
After I took the mirror, the limiter of HP, Strength, and Speed has been removed and now could be raised from S to SS.
And this time, as expected, with the Jewel, Endurance, MP, and Intelligence had the limiters removed and could be raised to SS.
Thus, I went around the fourth floor to raise my Endurance to SS.
With S Endurance, Cerberus full bite could dig into my skin, but with SS, he could no longer do so.
[Yoda-san has become stronger again desu.] (Emily)
Emily was pleased as though it was her own achievement.
