Following the stairs down.
I had to swallow my saliva.
The air around felt different.
The tensed air around me felt tingly.
[I-I wonder if the spirit here is a scary one]
That was what Alice felt, and it was a strong one at that.
[No, before we meet with the spirit, we have to fight with one more monster.] (Ryouta)
[Is that so!] (Alice)
[I mean that’s what’s been happening so far.
Once we head down this floor, we’ll be faced with a monster.
It’s a Dungeon Master class monster.] (Ryouta)
[I see….] (Alice)
It was but a moment when she looked at me with eyes of respect, before she changed into a more disturbed look when looking at the stairs.
[Is something bothering you] (Ryouta)
[Hey Ryouta, I…..want to try.] (Alice)
[Try and] (Ryouta)
[And fight with the monster.
After defeating it, we can meet with the spirit right] (Alice)
[That’s the usual way….] (Ryouta)
That has been the case when I was at Selen or Arsenic.
I wanted to defeat it before bringing her, but I didn’t say that out loud because I saw for a moment her dead serious eyes.
It shows that she really wants to do it, that she can do it.
With such a powerful and determined eyes, I can’t say anything else but.
[I got it.] (Ryouta)
I’m not sure why she wanted to do it, but if it’s her, I won’t say no to it.
[Then I’ll support you from behind.
Since you’ve used just a moment ago, I’ll basically be using to decrease it’s status.
Since there’s 6 monsters for you, before rushing I’ll use Speed Up Bullet—-] (Ryouta)
She stared at me.
It’s the same—–determined and pure eyes that indicated that she wants to fight by herself.
[I’ll do my best.] (Alice)
[I can do it.] (Alice)
[…..Is that so.] (Ryouta)
I have no idea what’s going on.
However, what she has shown me has made me believed that she can do it.
It’s not something that she’s putting herself in danger, but something she knows that it’s possible for her.
If that’s what she wants then.
[I understand.] (Ryouta)
I pulled back from any support and allowed her to do it.
She smiled and displayed a cheerful voice.
Then, having her friendly monsters walked towards her palm of her hands, she placed them on the ground and they became back to their original size.
Jumpy-san the Slime.
Boney-chan the Skeleton.
Bon-bon the Little Devil.
Toge-chan the Needle Lizard.
And Gau-gau the Master Dragon.
Since they know the feeling of their master, they knew what they have to do.
[Let’s go everyone~] (Alice)
After saying that, all of them went down together.
As soon as she left the last step, she disappeared.
[You’re here huh….Rebecca.] (Ryouta)
Calling out from behind, Rebecca appeared.
I thought she was at the mansion.
[I’ve heard from your friend that you’ll be here.] (Rebecca)
[I see, sorry for not meeting with you.] (Ryouta)
[Don’t worry about it.
So what are you here for] (Rebecca)
[Waiting for my friend to return.] (Ryouta)
[Return —– Don’t tell me.] (Rebecca)
As expected of her, [The Perfect], to understand what I meant after just one word.
[Yeah, we’re here to meet with the spirit of this dungeon, Phosphorus.] (Ryouta)
[Is that so….I guess this is not a coincidence or something.] (Rebecca)
[….Nope, that’s not it.] (Ryouta)
[Ara, you’re being cold for the first time.
So you’re trying to get another one of your friend to be a spirit holder.
However, you should know the hurdles leading up here] (Rebecca)
In Rebecca’s line, there was only a slight difference in [weight] from the others.
I understood even without asking.
The reason why she came to visit today would be to hear about the other huan——Mike who has Aurum’s name.
Apart from that, she also knows how hard it is to meet with spirits.
That’s why she was doubting.
[It’s not that I’m being cold to you.] (Ryouta)
[Then what could it be] (Rebecca)
I once again went around my thoughts.
I went back to when I first met with her.
[Probably, no it’s for certain.
After Alice returns, Phosphorus will be conquered.] (Ryouta)
[Which means….] (Rebecca)
For a moment, she stared at me.
[You go that far to trust her] (Rebecca)
[Saying that would be embarrassing, but yeah.] (Ryouta)
[Yes, I admit that her behaviour and feelings are transmitted through, but I wonder if it will work out.] (Rebecca)
[It will.] (Ryouta)
I immediately replied.
It’s not something so great like her feelings or anything.
I just simply trust in her.
Trust in Alice, that’s it.
[Ryouta! Look look! It’s Mera-mera, Mera-mera!!] (Alice)
After returning with high tension, there was a blue flame, a deformed ball of flame on her hands.
[Is that Phosphorus] (Ryouta)
[Yes! But today it’s Mera-Mera.] (Alice)
[I see…] (Ryouta)
Apparently Alice has already named the Dungeon spirit.
I unknowingly laughed at her naming sense.
Not knowing Alice, Rebecca couldn’t say anything back.
