Chapter 252 – Reason for being summoned
TLN Note: Clapping android
[Come onto my shoulder Mera-mera.
Then we’ll be going~] (Alice)
After eating her breakfast at the dining room, Alice called out to Mera-mera and her monster friends before leaving off to the dungeon.
After going for her work, what remained in the dining room was me, Leia, Mike and Aurum.
[She’s lively today as well huh, that Alice.] (Ryouta)
[It seems like she wants to explore different dungeons.] Aurum answered.
She—–and Mera-mera, which is also Phosphorus, is a spirit name holder.
[Is that so.] (Ryouta)
And it looks like she’s enjoying it.] (Aurum)
[That said……How about you Aurum Being with Mike and going everywhere as well.] (Ryouta)
[Leave it to me!] (Mike)
Our recent addition to the family, the mini wiseman and also a unique monster, Mike, did a guts pose and was hyped.
[Not interested~] Aurum said, seemingly bored.
[Is that so.] (Ryouta)
[Because~ all the dungeons are the same.
We produce monsters, and humans kills it and gets something.] (Aurum)
[I see, it is true that the other dungeons operates as so.] (Ryouta)
Since all of the dungeons produces the raw materials.
From gold dust to bean sprouts, every dungeon drops something, which is why it’s a place where people [find materials].]
If you put it that way, it doesn’t really sound interesting.
[I want to see more things outside of the dungeon.] (Aurum)
[Since you have Mike and all….
why not go for a vacation If it’s as it is now, you can only look around at night.] (Ryouta)
[Are you sure!] (Aurum)
The [not interested] look on her face instantly turned a 180 as she immediately responded with an interested look on her face.
Aurum really loves seeing the outside world.
[Yeah, but if we go immediately, the adventurers would be annoyed with that, let me see, if it’s once a month—–] (Ryouta)
[One month is gonna go by so fast! Yay! Thank you Ryouta!!] (Aurum)
Aurum was extremely excited, which took me by surprise.
[Alright, then I’ll do my best today! Let’s go~] (Aurum)
[I understand!] (Mike)
Aurum hugged Mike and ran out of the dining room.
Most of the time, Mike has to follow Aurum, but if you look from this perspective, it’s like [an employee whose boss has given her permission to take leave].
[It’s thanks to Master, but is the dungeon hers] (Leia)
[That seems to be it.] (Ryouta)
I had a hard time laughing.
Aurum who naturally felt happy from me, I couldn’t help but bitterly smiled.
Nihonium DUngeon, 8th floor.
[…..It’s been a long time since I’ve came here huh.] (Ryouta)
[It has been around three months, Master.] (Leia)
Leia answered me sounded like my secretary.
[Is there something on my face, Master.] (Leia)
[Ah no, sometimes I feel like you’re a tutorial guide from a game.
Like you would appear next to a small window text in the corner, and guiding me.] (Ryouta)
[I cannot comprehend the words you’re saying Master.] (Leia)
[As I thought.] (Ryouta)
I smiled bitterly.
Even if I talk about video games to the people in this world, they would not understand, because it doesn’t exist here.
Thus I usually don’t talk about it.
[But it’s easier to say it to Leia.] (Ryouta)
[Is that so.] (Leia)
Leia lightly took it.
Even if I talk about my original world, Leia would just listen to it, so it’s easy to talk with her about it.
[What is it] (Ryouta)
[Please look over there.] (Leia)
Leia pointed to the ground at an angle, slightly away from us.
There was a doll-sized woman wearing a tomesode.
She’s probably NIhonium, the spirit of this dungeon.
[Sorry, I was busy for some time.] (Ryouta)
She smiled brightly, however no words came from her.
I looked at her smile and thought for a moment.
Phosphorus who wanted to look at different dungeons, and Aurum who wants to see the outside world, instead of dungeons.
ARsenic who is satisfied with food, and Selenium who wants some erotic love regardless of gender.
The spirits all want different things.
[Do you have anything that you want] (Ryouta)
I asked her.
Maybe she wants something as well
Since I was curious, I asked her.
The woman just smiled.
Yes, she just smiled sweetly.
As always, she didn’t say anything, and disappeared.
[…..Seems like she needs something.] (Ryouta)
I thought so intuitively.
There’s no doubt.
Like any other spirits, at the deepest parts of the dungeon, there exist the spirits which wanted something.
I’m sure she wanted something as well.
After feeling that way, I was clearly relieved.
Remembering Aurum’s appearance.
Even working day and night, most spirits are unable to fulfill even that little hope that they have.
[I feel like doing something.
Though I can’t do anything, I want to help the rest of the spirits.] I uttered those words.
Then, I heard a clapping noise from the side.
When I looked at it, it was Leia applauding without any expression.
[What’s the matter Leia] (Ryouta)
[I do not know either.] (Leia)
[Hm You clap even without knowing] (Ryouta)
Master suddenly looked bright, and my hands suddenly moved on its own.] (Leia)
[I see.] (Ryouta)
[Aah, I just understood now.] (Leia)
[Master, is great.
I’m impressed, so that’s why I’m clapping.] (Leia)
I smiled at Leia who was moved by such things.
