Bringing her along, we went down to the first floor of Cobalt Dungeon.
[Alright then, Uhmm….now that I think about it, I’ve never gotten your name yet.] (Ryouta)
[Nayami Leia.] (Leia)
[The worrying Leia] (Ryouta)
A word that I’ve never heard before was translated into a different meaning.
[It is an olden word that translates to 『Zero』.] (Leia)
[…..Let’s change your name.
How about just Leia] (Ryouta)
[If master wishes.] (Leia)
She nodded without showing any emotions.
Leia reminded me of a certain flying dragon, but well that was also a female, and the word [zero] does fit her name based on the meaning.
Going back to the topic, I thought about some stuff.
[Well then, so how do you follow in terms of adventuring] (Ryouta)
I asked Leia.
Being a supporter role, she is an artificial life form created to increase drops, so she must have the ability to participate in battle.
And being her master right now, I would grasp her ability based on how I use my bullets and my magic.
[By mounting, so, please order me.] (Leia)
[Huh Well for now…..Mount.] (Ryouta)
It became a surprising scene to look at.
Suddenly, Leia’s body melted.
It reminded me of those movies where a robot would have liquid metals melting out of their body, and I was to mount on her.
It was an instant, and it happened.
I understood that there weren’t any harm to it.
After Leia’s body and mine merged, I had a protector and gauntlets around my hands.
A completely different thing has became an armor.
The colour was also slightly different.
It kinda reminded me of an old manga I once saw.
[I see, so this is what happens.] (Ryouta)
Your basic defense will increase.] (Leia)
My arms and ankles were moving.
It looked just like a protector, and there was no discomfort from wearing it.
Then in front of me, a Zombie Demon appeared.
I clenched my fist, and punched with my right hands with Leia’s Gauntlet.
With one punch the Zombie Demon flew and was instantly killed.
There was no drop.
From beside me another Zombie Demon appeared, this time I used a normal bullet and head shotted it.
This time the Iron Bars normally dropped.
[Now I get it, If I punch, then it registers as you’re the one killing it, so therefore no drop.] (Ryouta)
If I was a success, it would be an A Drop, that was the initial plan.] (Leia)
I understood the plan, and if it were to succeed then it will be something amazing.
I could predict what might happen if it succeeded.
Something like an artificial life form, with mechanics to deform.
[A Drop A equipment indeed.] (Ryouta)
Is something that can be made.
Well if it works then it’ll be good.
Thus, I started thinking.
It’s not a bad idea to research about it, and if we can produce it with the maximum efficiency, a revolution would occur in the industry.
That’s great, it’s great but.
By creating an artificial life form, if it fails you would just throw it away, that I can’t agree to it.
There must be something that can be done.
While I was thinking about it, another Zombie Demon appeared.
I reloaded and defeated it……then at that moment I suddenly realized something.
After firing rapidly, my Normal Bullet was fully reloaded.
[Since when did I…] (Ryouta)
[I was the one who did it for you, Master.] (Leia)
[You did it] (Ryouta)
[I was only doing what Master was thinking.
Is this something that I should not have done] (Leia)
[No it’s not.
Rather it’s help…..ful] (Ryouta)
[What seems to be the matter, Master.] (Leia)
I remember something that I thought of long ago.
Which was a way for my revolver—–a way long before the Life Ring Gun.
However, I could not figure out a good way of using it.
I went out of the Dungeon, and went back to the outskirts of Samechiren.
After checking that there were nobody around us, I placed a tuna that was bought from a far away market.
Honestly I wanted one more tuna, but they only had one left, so I’ll try getting the other one next time.
After waiting for a while, the Tuna hatched into a Gorilla, and I used repetition to kill it.
Then the Gorilla dropped a revolver.
Then I used Recovery Bullet and fired at myself.
After using Repetition, and being Leia’s Master, my MP consumption has been depleted by quite a lot.
[Drop……. Master, may I ask what this is] (Leia)
[Don’t tell this to anyone alright.
This is a Drop which only I can get because I have S for all my Drop.
Since I have S for all my Drops, even rogue monsters would drop items for me.] (Ryouta)
I will absolutely not tell anyone.] (Leia)
Even though Leia has answered, I was suspicious as to whether she understood it or not.
Whether she did or not, she answered me because it was her [Master’s order].
Well, that is fine too.
After using repetition, I’ve gotten myself 3 revolvers.
[Please hold on to this.] (Ryouta)
[As you wish, Master.] (Leia)
A part of the protector was deformed into an arm, then she held the revolver.
I see, so that’s how she reloads it.
[Let’s do it.
Do it like how I taught you just now.] (Ryouta)
Aiming with my revolver——I rapidly fired the Normal Bullets.
I fired at a direction where nobody was there.
The loaded bullets were all used up, then letting go of my revolver I took the next revolver that was held nearby.
The new revolver had Normal Bullets inside.
Then I rapidly fire with that too and let it go—–And took the revolver that I originally was using.
It was also reloaded, and I continue firing it.
While I was rapidly firing it, Leia would reload for me, and once I’m done I would hand it to her for her to reload once more.
Without me having to take the time and reload, my rapid fire speed has nearly doubled!
These were the 3 steps of striking from Nobunaga.
Recently, there have been theories that the shooter won’t change it, but instead a person nearby would load the guns for them and hand it to the person who is good at shooting to fire it.
It’s the same theory as that.
After finishing firing everything, I put my revolver down.
[Good job Leia.] (Ryouta)
[You’re really helpful.
So let’s continue with this pattern from now onwards.] (Ryouta)
[I understand…..Thank you so much, Master.] (Leia)
It isn’t just the reload, but there might be other things she could help out for.
It’s as if I have an additional hand, which meant that so many more possibilities to be had.
What can I do, what can be done
I thought of that.
Then talked to Leia about the techniques which can be done.
Having obtained a new power, and thinking about ideas using that new power really is the most fun.
[Oh whoops, I was too engrossed in my thoughts.
For now Leia, please return to your original form.] (Ryouta)
[Yes, Master.] (Leia)
Hearing my orders, Leia returned back to being a human form.
However the first time she wasn’t used to it, she would get caught in my clothes in the process of returning, which lead into my bullets and items dropping all over the ground.
[I’m so sorry Master.] (Leia)
[Don’t mind it.] (Ryouta)
Leia who returned to being a human form helped pick my items together.
The Normal Bullets, Flaming Bullets.
In fact they were the drop items of bills and coins.
And also a number of items including the Tears of Slime.
I suddenly found an item while we were picking them up.
It was the earrings of Satanachia.
It was something I got today, the item of the Dungeon Master.
The ability…….is to invalidate a woman’s ability.
[…..Leia, please try this on.] (Ryouta)
[I am an artificial life form, so fashion is not necessary.] (Leia)
[It’s not that.
Wait even if it’s not I’m sure it will suit you just fine.
However that’s not it right now.
Just try it on.] (Ryouta)
If it is Master’s wish.] (Leia)
After Leia said that, she wore the earrings of Satanachia.
The moment she equipped the earrings.
[I knew it.] (Ryouta)
[What seems to be the matter Master.] (Leia)
[The MP consumption disappeared.] (Ryouta)
Leia was surprised, it was rare of her to have such a huge change in emotion.
But it was as I expected.
Since this earring of Satanachia restrains the ability of woman, be it a good or bad ability, all of it would be restricted.
So even the ability of decreasing the Master’s MP——even an ability like that would be restricted.
From just now, I could feel my MP dropping like a sand falling down in an hourglass, however right now that wasn’t the case.
[I wonder what other ability is gone, try changing Leia.] (Ryouta)
By my orders, she again changed into a protector. (TLN: Wait how in the world If her ability to decrease MP is restricted, why isn’t her ability to transform not Doesn’t make sense)
I hatched the coin into a rogue monster and punched it.
Then a Drop Up potion appeared.
It wasn’t a Drop F ability from Leia, but my Drop S.
It seems like the earring was in effect as well.
[Can you reload as usual] (Ryouta)
[Yes, it is possible.] (Leia)
As that isn’t an ability but an [action].
If that was the case then the moment you equipped the earring, I’m sure you wouldn’t be able to move.] (Ryouta)
The demerits of Leia, which made her a failed product has now been cancelled by the earrings of Satanachia.
To me, Leia isn’t a demerit anymore, but a huge help for me.
[The problems have completely been solved.
So let’s help each other from now on Leia.] (Ryouta)
I will follow Master for the rest of my life.] (Leia)
She said with a slightly higher tension.
I did not immediately understand the meaning of the word [For the rest of my life].
It was common for the earring to invalidate the [absolute submission to master], so that means she willingly said that.
……That meaning, I finally noticed it after being pointed out afterwards.
