Chapter 251 – One million people
After our breakfast, i went to our mansion’s saloon.
As it was rare for us to have customers, I went to work slightly late.
And the one who visited us were the Neptune family.
And obviously with Neptune, he was accompanied with Ran and Lil.
Neptune sat in the middle of the sofa, and both Ran and Lil were sitting beside him.
[All three of you always look close together.] (Ryouta)
[I’m sure you’re doing even better yourself.
How many people do you have right now, seeing that you have a mansion now.] (Neptune)
[Well, I can say that I know them well enough to have them stay here.](Ryouta)
[Of course you are.
Your precious friends, it’s important to know them.] (Neptune)
[However, the association of Flint is still too young for you to—-] (Neptune)
[Anymore and I’ll be sent to court okay!] (Ryouta)
Needlessly retorting his jokes, Neptune had a friendly smile.
It’s gonna be a pain if you get angry, so I’ll back off this time.] (Neptune)
[It’s not like I’m angry at that.] (Ryouta)
[I know.] (Neptune)
While he was laughing, he has a serious look on his face.
[I like that side of you.] (Neptune)
[I’ll seriously be angry if you go off into that direction.] (Ryouta)
[Don’t worry, I’m not like that okay. It’s more like pouring you a cup of wine, sort of like.] (Neptune)
[Please spare me from that.] (Ryouta)
I’m used to people calling me Ryouta family, but to say it like that, it’s gonna make me sound like some mafia or yakuza.
Sometimes I don’t know whether Neptune is joking or being serious, but for now let’s just continue with why he’s here.
[So, why are you here] (Ryouta)
[Hmm, actually it’s not you, but I wanted to greet with the rest….but it’s fine if it’s you.] (Neptune)
[The rest] (Ryouta)
[Uhm…how should I put it.] (Neptune)
Neptune’s two girls—–asked the two girls who were sticking with Neptune to answer.
Ran who looks like a childhood friend, and her cool and bewitching elder sister Lil.
Of the two, Lil answered the question with a dignified look.
[It’s Emily, Alice, Leia, and Mike, the four of them.] (Lil)
[Yes yes, four of them.] (Ran)
[….Oh you mean about the spirits] (Ryouta)
It’s four names which Neptune had never spoken to before.
Moreover, I was only friends with Leia and Mike recently, so they have never even met with Neptune before.
Though they have never met with Neptune, all of them have something in common.
They’re spirit name holders.
For any family who have multiple people who have spirit name holders, I would like to meet with those families.] (Neptune)
[So you have a few who are spirit name holders.] (Ryouta)
Though it was my first time hearing this, I wasn’t surprised.
After being transported into this world, I’ve listened to a variety of stories from the Neptune family.
And there are times where I’m indebted by them.
A person who is without a doubt powerful, and with many perfect results.
And to have many of them being spirit name holders.
So I’m not surprised.
[Let me introduce myself again, my name is Neptune・Oxygen.] (Neptune)
[Oxygen huh.] (Ryouta)
[Ran is Ran・Hydrogen.] (Ran)
Remember it.] (Lil)
I’m not surprised about Neptune, but the two of the ladies.
I know about Hydrogen, as the dungeons have similar names with what we have on earth.
What I’m surprised about is that both sisters have the same spirit names.
[I’m sure you’re surprised.
But that’s because the spirit would not admit if it isn’t the two of them.] (Neptune)
[I see.] (Ryouta)
[But…Oxygen and Hydrogen huh.] (Ryouta)
[What’s wrong with it] (Neptune)
Neptune tilted his head.
Looking at the three of them, I said.
Was what I said.
[Nah, it’s nothing.] (Ryouta)
[Is that so Well whatever.
Because of that, I want to meet with them, so I wondered if I could after asking you.] (Neptune)
[Why would that be] (Ryouta)
[In some cases, spirit name holders are ones that greatly affect the lives of many.
I’m sure you understand.] (Neptune)
[…..I see.] (Ryouta)
For example, Rebecca.
For her, she has the dungeon all on her own.
I mean it’s the same with me, but for Aurum’s sake, I made the dungeon having zero drops during night time.
So for Neptune saying that, I do understand.
[Though there’s no official position, they are far superior than that of the head of the dungeon association.] (Neptune)
[That’s why.] (Ryouta)
[So to have 4 of them behind your back, if you think about it, they’re yours because you’re the leader.
But I won’t worry because it’s you.] (Neptune)
[I don’t buy that.] (Ryouta)
[Looking at you, I love it—–Hahahahah.] (Neptune)
Then he kissed the two of them sitting next to him.
As if nothing had ever happened, the two of them rubbed their cheeks and Neptune continued.
[But, you’re really amazing.] (Neptune)
[When we first met, you were just a normal adventurer, but after that you have four person with spirit name holders beside you….] (Neptune)
Neptune looked at me seriously.
[…….You have become so large that you have affected millions of people.] (Neptune)
