[Low level, it’s empty.] (Eve)
[There’s no one in this house as well.] (Celeste)
After Eve and Celeste returned, they reported back to me, which made my eyebrow frown.
We decided to look around the city after cleaning up the rogue monsters in Tetramine, but there was nobody present.
We tried going around buildings, but there was nobody, not even a single child.
[This is troublesome.] Eve quietly said.
Indeed that is the case.
With such a hazardous situation in the city, it would be scary to say that the residents were hiding in their house.
[But this is odd.
If they knew that this was going to happen, why didn’t they ask Ryouta-san for help.] (Celeste)
[I thought so as well.] (Ryouta)
Observing around, the city looks like a ruin after defeating all the rogue monsters.
Dale even told me to move houses.
So I was convinced when Neptune even said that they’re after my taxes.
[In this situation, we can help the city from the monsters more straightly.] (Celeste)
[So low level isn’t necessary.] (Eve)
The words of Eve are accurate.
I’m sure her bad mood would be because she followed me and her carrots are being reduced.
[That’s right, if monsters are overrunning the city, they can just ask ordinary adventurers to get rid of it.
Even with this scale—– I’m sure even a hundred adventurers would be able to finish it within a day.] (Celeste)
[What is happening] (Ryouta)
We immediately understood the reason.
After the monsters were swept away, the residents from Shikuro returned, and even Dale and his residents returned as well.
[Thank you so much! Thank you so much!]
Dale and the residents of Tetramine kept thanking us over and over again.
[Could you explain yourself Why did you ask us a favour in such a manner If you just say that monsters are occupying the city, I would not refuse otherwise.] (Ryouta)
[It’s not like that!] (Dale)
Dale was panicking and he couldn’t really explain it well as he kept stuttering.
[This was a last minute thing, and it was because of the dungeon.
The city was fine until I went to Shikuro.] (Dale)
[In other words, the situation changed after you left] (Ryouta)
The vice chairman ran away with all the money when I wasn’t around…] (Dale)
[That’s why we needed you, and it was sudden when this—-] (Dale)
[So you wanted us to break it at once.] (Ryouta)
The residents behind him also nodded as well.
It doesn’t seem like he’s lying.
Even if there are one or two liars, it’s impossible for hundreds of people to lie at the same time.
The more people involved in their lies, the probability of a crack would increase.
What’s more, at least he evacuated the residents to a place where there are no monsters.
It was convincing when they looked exhausted and tired.
Though we were aiming for various benefits, but thanks to the people of Shikuro coming in, the city resumed for the time being.
Since the city was so busy, we decided to head to the dungeon first.
Plumbum Dungeon, basement first floor.
[Hmm, this is….] (Ryouta)
[It’s full of water! How!] (Celeste)
Celeste was first to be surprised when we entered the dungeon.
The dungeon seemed to be totally submerged with water.
Water plants were drifting around based on our movement of the body.
[Eh But we can somehow breathe.] (Ryouta)
[You’re right.] (Celeste)
[That’s how it is.] (Eve)
[Eve Have you been here before] (Ryouta)
Eve lightly nodded.
[It was with a party before the party Bunny was with.] (Eve)
[So you were with various parties huh.] (Ryouta)
But we would always break apart because we want to go to different dungeons.] (Eve)
So it was the same as before.
[We can breathe normally even in water.] (Eve)
[How about this——Eii!] (Celeste)
Celeste took out her magic tool, the Bicorn Horn, and shook it.
The Infinite Fireball normally fired out.
[Oh, I can normally do it.
I thought the water would weaken the flames.] (Celeste)
[I see, so this should be alright as well.] (Ryouta)
I took out my revolvers, and fired the Infinite Lighting Bullet on a wall.
The electric distributed around the wall, but it doesn’t conduct with the water around us, or everywhere.
It’s like we’re underwater, but it’s not water.
Such a mysterious dungeon.
[Then, how about the monsters….
There’s one.] (Ryouta)
We found a monster.
It looked like a fish swimming around in the air.
It’s as big as a dolphin you would see in an aquarium.
However, the face looked fierce with fangs in its mouth.
[Bunny hates Killer Fish, hate it.] (Eve)
[So it’s a Killer FIsh] (Ryouta)
I changed the bullet to the Growth Bullet, and fired at the Killer FIsh which was swimming towards us.
The bullet caught it, and penetrated its body vertically.
After a disturbing noise, the Killer Fish split into two.
[It split into two!] (Celeste)
[So it’s like that.
Try using magic to burn it to pieces.] (Ryouta)
[I got it! Bicorn Horn!] (Celeste)
The ball of fire caught the Killer Fish and burned it.
[It increased again!] (Celeste)
The burned Killer Fish split again into two bodies.
[If you don’t defeat it, it will increase with each attack.] (Eve)
Eve approached one of the Killer FIsh and chopped it.
After the disturbing noise was made, the Killer Fish increased more than twenty bodies.
[This is what happens.] (Eve)
[Then stop multiplying it!] (Ryouta)
Because Eve’s attack isn’t a single chop, but a technique of hitting 100 shots per second, the Killer Fish increased at a stretch.
[Because of this, Bunny hates this place.] (Eve)
[Th-this is not the time to complain! Even with this amount—-] (Celeste)
Celeste was panicking.
I reloaded a bullet, and breathed deeply before firing.
Increasing my fire power, I used Penetration Bullets to defeat the Killer Fishes.
More than twenty plus Killer Fishes were defeated.
[——-Wait we’re alright.
Amazing Ryouta-san!] (Celeste)
[Low level is so cheeky even though low level is low level.] (Eve)
Both of them were complementing() me, but in two different ways.
[I see now.] (Ryouta)
[What did you find out] (Celeste)
I touched an object floating in the air.
It was a white thing.
It smells like milk.
(TLN Note: Oh man)
[Yeap, the drop of the first floor is milk.
We can slowly recover it while it’s floating.] (Ryouta)
[It’s unsurprisingly useful, the characteristics of this dungeon.] (Celeste)
What Celeste said.
The milk isn’t contained inside a bottle, but just floating around in a weightless space.
It’s convenient in its own way, but.
[On the other hand, it’s fatal.] (Ryouta)
[Eh Fatal] (Celeste)
[Did you not notice How many have I killed.] (Ryouta)
[Eh Around twenty] (Celeste)
[That’s not it.] (Ryouta)
[It was just one.] (Ryouta)
When I said that, I pointed at the milk.
[It’s just one.] (Ryouta)
[…..Wait, you’re joking.] (Celeste)
Celeste was bewildered.
Another Killer Fish has been swimming around, so I poke it a little and it immediately split, even with such a weak attack.
Since I’m doing it by myself, I counted how many were there.
After it hit a hundred, I defeated all of it by firing repeatedly.
Celeste screamed in excitement, but soon she was shocked.
The 100 Killer Fish dropped only one whole milk.
The more you divide it, the harder it is to get the drop.
Now I know why Plumbum is not doing well.
