I hurriedly ran around the city, looking around for monsters.
There were weak Slimes around the vicinity.
I hurriedly defeated them and went on to other places.
In the dungeon, I would take my time to defeat because of training, but we’re in the middle of the city, so it’s better to finish them quickly.
Since I can’t waste anymore time, I used Homing Bullets to defeat the monsters.
As I don’t even need to aim at them, I can keep firing it without knowing where the monsters are.
I chose that over Repetition is because I have to cast the spell and that takes time.
And since Slimes are all weaklings, the Homing Bullet would be a better option.
[Ooh, found the culprit.]
[Neptune …And also…..] (Ryouta)
Neptune who found me suddenly called me a culprit.
He was followed by his usual 2 lovers, Ran and Lil.
[What did I tell you.
The culprit will always return to the crime scene.] (Neptune)
Ne-kun is amazing.]
[Don’t be proud of yourself.
I was the one who told you in the first place.]
[Is that so.
But What’s Lil is mine, so that’s that.] (Neptune)
What are you even saying.] (LiL)
[Hey how about me] (Ran)
Neptune was flirting with his lovers.
Ignoring that, I walked away.
[Wait wait wait a minute.
That’s horrible of you to ignore me.] (Neptune)
[Just so you know, I’m not the culprit.] (Ryouta)
[Of course I know about that.
Everyone in Shikuro believes that as well.
Probably there’s another culprit, and that’s what I like about it.] (Neptune)
Neptune said some interesting things, as he smiled.
[Hey, let me give you an advice.]
[What is it] (Ryouta)
[Once you find the true criminal, you better punish him.
Never ever be sympathetic with them.] (Neptune)
[There’s no point in being sympathetic towards that person.] (Neptune)
I somewhat understand but not really.
[Oh and another thing.] (Neptune)
[Don’t immediately defeat the culprit, as they wanted to lay the blame on you.] (Neptune)
I finally understood what he meant.
Trying to release monsters around the city and blaming on me, there must be a personal motive towards me.
[Thanks, you’re a big help.] (Ryouta)
[Fufu, even famous people have it tough.] (Neptune)
[I’ll treat you next time.] (Ryouta)
After saying goodbye to him, I went around chasing after the culprit.
After walking around a few times, I saw another monster.
It’s another Slime, but two.
I went straight to defeat them, and the Slime bounced off and clashed towards me.
I then heard a puzzling noise in my brain.
It was something fresh.
It’s been around a year since a Slime attacked me.
After getting stronger to some extent, I didn’t even take any damage from the Slime.
——Whoops, not the place to be thinking about this.
[Uhmm…..U, Uwaah.] (Ryouta)
If someone around knows me, I’ll die from embarrassment.
Worst acting ever.
So after shouting for awhile, I purposely fell down to the ground.
The Slimes then gathered around me and attacked.
It didn’t hurt, but what’s worse is that it’s hard to resist attacking them.
While being attacked, I awkwardly shouted out words like [Uwaa~] or [Ouch~].
Though nobody was looking, my face was burning in embarrassment.
And it was worth it.
[There’s monsters here! And Ryouta Satou is releasing more rogue monsters!]
[There it is!]
I turned around the voice.
I saw someone screaming around the corner.
I immediately took out my revolver and fired at where it was.
Using Restraint Bullets obviously.
[Wh-what is this!]
I defeated the Slimes with magic and slowly approached the person.
The person who was bound by the restraint bullet was a middle-aged man.
[Who are you] (Ryouta)
[I should ask that!]
The man yelled.
I only asked for his name, but then,
I heard someone whispering behind me, and I turned.
It was a face that I remembered.
Looking back again, the man was in rage when Mateia appeared.
I knew about Mateia’s problem, and he called that man [boss].
[Is that your former boss] (Ryouta)
Asking, Mateia looked at me with a sad look.
Ah, I see.
I immediately understood the entire situation.
[So it’s about your regrets.] (Ryouta)
I heard about it and wanted to chase after him, but I didn’t think it was the boss….] (Mateia)
Mateia then sighed further.
In other words, it was good that I published the method of farming in the 20th floor in order to keep them from making money.
But that had an opposite effect from the boss.
[I’m sorry Satou-san, for all of this.] (Mateia)
[No, it’s not your fault.] (Ryouta)
What’s bad is this guy.
He started a business, and if it fails, the subordinate gets the blame, and if it succeeded, he gets all the credit.
He’s the enemy of all business owners.
What should I do with him.
[My energy is coming out….]
I wonder, I don’t feel like doing anything after seeing this.
After all, he was the one who scattered the rogue monster and said it was my fault.
No one in Shikuro believed, and the scattered monsters were weak as well.
[Why Slimes though] (Ryouta)
[Obviously! Why would I danger myself with stronger monsters!]
A man where I could not empathize with.
I really am losing my power.
[What would you do Satou-san.] (Mateia)
[Well, since I’ve found the culprit, and he has no intention of doing anything to me.] (Ryouta)
[Are you sure] (Mateia)
[I understand, then I’ll notify the appropriate people.] (Mateia)
Even if I do something, there’s no point when all he did was release some weak monsters.
So it’s better to just bring him to the right authority.
[I’ve heard of the story, and I’ll make the decision.] (Cell)
[Uwa! C-Cell, when did you even.] (Ryouta)
I was so surprised by Cell suddenly appearing.
As always, the god of death.
[There has been a lot of noise in the city, and I can’t stand sitting as the chairman of the association.] (Cell)
[Well, that would be so.] (Ryouta)
[And we’ll have to get rid of the sins of Satou-sama.] (Cell)
[That’s something that the chairman of the association shouldn’t—-] (Ryouta)
I bitterly smiled, and something fell off from the sleeve of Cell.
It was a very heavy sound, and it was a figure of me—
[What is it me being attacked by the Slimes!] (Ryouta)
Cell picked up the figure and went straight to the former boss of Mateia.
[So, the leader of the Septo Family, I’ll give you a choice now.] (Cell)
[Wh-what, who are—-]
[From now on, we will prohibit you from buying anything in Shikuro.
And your dungeon license will be cancelled as well.] (Cell)
Cell’s sentence was probably the heaviest one.
[W-wait a minute! That’s not it!]
Septo who was being bound was desperately pleading—–but I wonder what is he pleading about.
However, Cell went away without looking back.
His back looked as if anger was leaking out of it.
Uhmm, I knew it.
That’s why I said.]
Neptune who was beside me came out and said.
[Even if you gave him mercy, he’s not going to be freed.] (Neptune)
Neptune said with a smile on his face.
