I won’t let you do it though.”
“Hmmm, let’s just not do it.”
The two beauties standing behind Neptune——Especially Ril, was staring at me with her eyebrows frowning, and puffing her cheeks.
Though I’m being sent death threats from their eyes, Neptune put a stop by raising his hands.
And just like how he is like, he smiled and spoke.
“Why is it you want to know.
Would you be happy if I gave a reason” (Neptune)
“I think if they don’t hear a reason from you, they would never give up.” (Ryouta)
“Yeah, but my intentions are real this time around.” (Neptune)
I sighed once.
“You don’t have anything to worry huh.” (Ryouta)
“Must I worry about something” (Neptune)
“It’s not that you have to……” (Ryouta)
Replying to me with such a serious face makes me worried even more.
Realistically speaking, it’s understandable based on his judgement, however……
I move around a lot in this world, especially when it comes to saving or helping people around.
I would help people who worked hard but gained nothing in return.
People who are being exploited.
Just looking at them reminds me of what I went through in the past, and I would automatically help them.
And based on that, there’s no need to help Neptune with his condition.
He’s not someone who’s being exploited, or being used.
More like he’s the opposite of those people.
That’s why I want to refuse his offer.
“You don’t have to worry about that.” (Neptune)
“Why not” (Ryouta)
“Because, I’m really in need.” (Neptune)
Neptune answered, and used his usual secretive smile at me.
“Tennessine.” was what he said.
“The 117 atomic number huh.” (Ryouta)
“What’s that” (Neptune)
“Ah don’t mind me …So a new dungeon has been born” (Ryouta)
As I briefly said, Ril and Ran’s eyes widen, as if they’ve heard of something unimaginable.
Neptune didn’t act that way, but in return he smiled even more.
“Ahaha, as expected, you’re amazing beyond belief.
It’s not even publicly announced yet, and I’m the only one who knows about this new dungeon.” (Neptune)
I might’ve been careless on my part.
The 117 atomic number, Tennessine.
It’s the same with Nihonium, where the name is the same as the periodic table, so that’s how I got to know about it.
Since it’s common to know about these in our world, but for them it’s a name that hasn’t been heard of before, so it was careless on my part that they have such a reaction.
“I’m in charge of investigating that dungeon, similar to what I did for Nihonium.” (Neptune)
“That’s awesome.” (Ryouta)
“And, I’m having a pinch right this moment.
Honestly, I can’t do it, because I’ve been cursed.
And thus, I need you to help me, no, I want you to help me.” (Neptune)
“Are you sure you’re in a pinch.” (Ryouta)
“Yes, and honestly, you’re the only one who can help me.
The only person in this world who is higher rank than me, is none other than you.” (Neptune)
I’m not sure whether he’s being real with me——and I don’t know his true intentions.
“You’re not fair.” (Ryouta)
“Am I” (Neptune)
Neptune acted innocent, so I thought maybe I can find some clues with his partners, but both Ril and Ran’s faces seemed, eloquent.
Ril had an angry face as if saying [If I don’t accept it, I’ll kill you], and Ran’s like [If Neptune can’t do it, then I can’t……] with a sad expression.
Both have their own worries.
And the person that they’re following is…..being unfair.
“…….Sigh, fine.” (Ryouta)
“So you’re gonna accept it” (Neptune)
“Thanks! Ril, Ran.” (Neptune)
“I got it!” (Rin)
“Hmph…..if only you’re done as you’re told.” (Ran)
Both of them turned around in unison, and walked back from whence they came from.
“What are you going to do” (Ryouta)
“They’re doing some preparations, and I will be spreading news about the Neptune family joining the Ryouta family.” (Neptune)
“Is it even necessary” (Ryouta)
“……Of course.” (Neptune)
“Oi, what’s with the pause.” (Ryouta)
Don’t tell me, those two were acting as well
“Eeeh~, ahaha, oh come on.
Since I’m in a pinch, can’t you be a buddy and help me out” (Neptune)
“You’re so clear about it that I can’t even get angry about it!” (Ryouta)
I unknowingly retorted, but he returned it with a serious face instead.
“But I’m truly grateful….for your help.” (Neptune)
“………You, it’s so unfair that you’re being serious with me.” (Ryouta)
Afterwards, Neptune said that he’ll come back once he’s done preparing, and left Nihonium.
Regaining my motive, I once again raised my Dex to B, then return to the mansion.
“Aaah, something terrible happened Ryouta-san.”
“What’s up Ena” (Ryouta)
“Outside, look outside right now!” (Ena)
Following her instructions, I looked through the window.
“My gosh! Who are these people……..there’s like a hundred plus of them!” (Ryouta)
“They’re all adventurers, adventurers that are under Neptune’s wings.” (Ena)
“Neptune you say” (Ryouta)
I furrowed my eyebrows, and I have a bad feeling about this.
“I heard that Neptune has recently joined under your family, so his own teammates have entered as well.
They’re all saying things like [We’ll follow Brother Ryouta for the rest of our lives] or something along those lines.” (Ena)
Rubbing my eyebrows, I was starting to get a headache.
I don’t think I can accept these hot headed people.
And thus I left it as is.
Then after a few days, the largest family was born, with Ryouta Family having Neptune’s Family, and his own subordinate families under him.
I’m beginning to get a migraine from this.
