Teruru Dungeon, first floor.
I was resting at the rest area.
Leia went back to the mansion.
She went to ask about the numbers of the optimized farming.
There’s also a tabulation function in the Magic Cart that Olton remodeled for me, but it is only a simple one.
She I want to know about the exact number, I asked Leia to head back.
Hence why I’m resting here right now.
[Everyone, please get in line.
It’s dangerous if you don’t follow~]
I caught hold of an interesting conversation.
Looking at where the voice came from, it was a young woman in her twenties with children who look like elementary to middle schoolers.
[What’s that] (Ryouta)
[Oh, you don’t know]
A familiar adventurer which I knew answered my question.
[What would that be] (Ryouta)
[It’s a school trip.
Since adventurer is the main occupation, sometimes teachers will accompany you to dungeons and have a tour.]
[I see, so basically a social studies tour.] (Ryouta)
I didn’t know there’s things like these here.
[Since it’s not dangerous if they’re at the first floor.
It’s easy for us, but for the kids, it’s best to be safe.]
[Yeah, obviously.] (Ryouta)
The adventurer then went back inside the rest area.
But a tour in a dungeon huh.
Sounds normal for this world.
A girl came walking up towards me and bowed.
[Hello, is there something you like] (Ryouta)
Since the person is a kid, I used a much lighter tone with her.
[Oji-san, are you an adventurer]
[Ojii…..Aaah, yes that’s right.] (Ryouta)
Could you show me how you defeat monster]
Another girl came here.
She was speaking politely as well, but she sounded more strong.
I’m sure I’ll meet her again in the dungeon in the near future.
It’s just that kind of impression I got from her.
[Aah, I’m fine with it.] (Ryouta)
I stopped with resting and took out my revolvers.
[Thank you very much.]
[Thank you so much.
I think I saw a monster over there just now.]
[No it’s alright.
It’s about time anyways.] (Ryouta)
The little girls titled their heads in confusion.
With my revolvers, I aimed at air.
Since I’ve been farming here for such a long time, I can pinpoint exactly when and where the respawn point would be.
Plus I’m using a Restraint Bullet.
I fired at a place where there’s nothing, but it hit the Slime just as soon as it spawns.
The Restraint Bullet became ropes of light and immobilized the Slime.
[Wow! That’s amazing!]
[Do you want to see it more closely And defeat it] (Ryouta)
[Is that fine!]
The strong looking girl’s eyes shine brightly and went straight to the binded Slime.
The other girl did the same, but she picked up a stone that was slightly further away from the Slime.
Whether they are friends for life, both of them poked the Slime and that put a smile on my face.
I was also careful to not let the bind disappear.
The girls attacked the Slime for five minutes straight.
Then, a bean sprout dropped, which the girls picked up with happiness.
[Oji-san! It’s a bean sprout!]
[You did it!] (Ryouta)
[Thank you so much.]
The girls smiled sweetly.
[Oi, what are you doing.]
Another kid came along.
This time it was a boy, a boy who seemed a bit violent.
[This person’s so cool.]
[Look, because of Oji-san, we defeated a Slime.]
[Sigh, that’s amazing You girls are too soft.]
[What do you mean by that.]
[Oi old man.]
[What’s your name]
[It’s Satou Ryouta.] (Ryouta)
You don’t have it.]
[What do you mean by that] (Ryouta)
[Let me tell you something, an adventurer’s most formidable deed is to have a spirit name.]
[A spe-it’s na-me]
There’s spirit in every dungeon, and if the spirit acknowledges you, they let you put their name on top of yours.]
[Is that so]
The girls looked at me.
[Yeap, that’s right.] (Ryouta)
[And Satou or Ryouta isn’t a dungeon name.
So he ain’t so strong after all.]
He’s not violent, he’s just a brat.
Though he’s right, but he’s pouring cold water to the girls, shunning me.
Should I follow him.
[Ahh, it’s been a long time Ryo-kun.]
[So you know just by hearing my voice.
I can feel our friendship deepening even more.] (Neptune)
[There’s no such thing as friendship meter in our status, so it’s fine] (Ryouta)
Seems like Neptune’s here as well, and his two partners Ran and Rin are here.
[To be at this kind of place—– Aah, your partner is children’s huh.] (Neptune)
[I was taking a break.] (Ryouta)
[I see i see.
Children are important as well, they’re humanity’s treasures.] (Neptune)
[That is right.] (Ryouta)
The brat suddenly spoke to Neptune, but in a totally different attitude.
[Hm What is it] (Neptune)
[By Neptune, do you mean that Neptune Oxygen-san]
[So you know me.] (Neptune)
It’s a spirit name holder!]
The boy’s tension rose.
[U-Uhmm! Can I shake hands with you]
[I want to be an adventurer! A great adventurer just like you!]
[I see, I’m glad.
But it’s better to aim higher, like him.] (Neptune)
When Neptune pointed at me, the boy was confused.
That old man]
[He’s amazing, right~] (Neptune)
[I’m fine with compliments, but please don’t wink at me.] (Ryouta)
[Hahaha, you’re as hard as ever.] (Neptune)
[Have you ever been told by someone that you have a few screw loose] (Ryouta)
I said but Neptune didn’t respond.
An easy to talk person, but weird sometimes.
[Then I’m leaving now.
Let’s go Ran Ril.] (Neptune)
[I’ve waited too long.]
The Neptune family went down the stairs.
When Neptune left, the boy blew his nose.
[Don’t be cocky.]
[Uhhh, okay] (Ryouta)
I wondered why, but he stood up and glared at me.
[The awesome ones are adventurers with spirit names, so don’t boast just because you’re friends with him!]
Aah, okay.] (Ryouta)
Now I get it.
I guess he’s just envious.
[Ah, you’re back Leia.] (Ryouta)
I knew it was Leia who was behind me without even turning around.
Leia walked in front of me.
She didn’t even bat an eye on the children, and just looked at me.
Usually you would look at the children who are inside the dungeon but….
Seems like Leia doesn’t care.
[I apologize for being late.] (Leia)
[Did something happen] (Ryouta)
[I was called by Selenium.
If I ignore it, Master who is inside my head would not do that otherwise, so I went there first.] (Leia)
[It can’t be helped if that’s the case.] (Ryouta)
Selenium might’ve been horny again, so I didn’t say anything more.
Suddenly, the expression of the boy widen.
He looked stunned as he stared at Leia.
[What’s wrong] (Ryouta)
[Don’t tell me, this Onee-chan has Selenium on her name]
When I nodded, the boy was even more surprised.
Spirit name holder, But calling him Master…..
He seems like the type to say what’s on his mind.
And it looks like he was dazed when Leia called me master.
[Ryouta! L~e~t’s GO~]
[Uwaa!! Who’s hugging me from behind!] (Ryouta)
Aurum who was embracing me from behind was hugging Mike as well, who was squished on me as well.
[Why are you here] (Ryouta)
[I came to pick you up.
I want to bring Ryouta out of the dungeon.] (Aurum)
[I see.] (Ryouta)
[So, are you happy] (Aurum)
[It is a rare experience to have a spirit come to pick me up.] (Ryouta)
[Fu fu~] (Aurum)
Aurum was delighted.
Looking at her and Mike, I was glad.
Then, on another hand.
Don’t tell me that Aurum! Why to this old man!]
The boy was shaken even further.
The boy turned to me.
He held his mouth and stared at me.
[Don’t think that you’ve won!!]
The boy ran away with an angry look.
While looking at his back, I secretly whispered [Do your best] on my breath.
