“Bad news, bad news Ryouta-san!”
When noon was drawing closer, I have just returned from Plumbum when Elza rushed out to meet me near the Transportation Room.
Her face did not indicate someone who is distressed.
But was happy instead.
“Why are you in a hurry, Elza” (Ryouta)
“I have just received news from the Association Chief, he asked for Ryouta-san to met with him immediately.” (Elza)
“Meet with me” (Ryouta)
Is there something he needs from me…… No.
“Since you said it was something servere, did he tell you about it” (Ryouta)
Elza breaths out from her nose as she said that.
It doesn’t look like the word [bad news] is relating to something bad perse.
“Tennessine has increased its floors.!” (Elza)
“It did” (Ryouta)
“Yes! Apparently there’s one more floor above the previous highest floor.” (Elza)
“I see.” (Ryouta)
Since I’ve only been in this world for one and a half years, I did not know the severity of this news.
“This is truly unheard of.”
The highest floor of Tennessine.
With the help of Nihonium’s power, there were no monsters around.
And since this was a new floor, the workers haven’t start their work yet.
The place is as if when I was young, and the workers were building a new place, and they would leave their trucks and equipment around the vicinity.
Thus, the two of us who is standing on this very floor, where there’s nothing at all whatsoever, Cell showed a serious face that has never been seen before.
“You’ve never heard what happening before” (Ryouta)
“That a dungeon would increase floors.” (Cell)
“This is the first” (Ryouta)
“If that can happen, Satou-sama wouldn’t have to do anything during the time with Selen dungeon.” (Cell)
A dungeon with 10 floors in total, and the drops are separated perfectly into 5 vegetables and 5 meat drops.
Due to that, both associations fought over who has the right for the dungeon, and it was to the point where I had to step in.
If an extra dungeon were to appear in that dungeon, then it would’ve decided who would keep that dungeon.
By the way, when I asked Selen about why she wanted to split the drops into half, she said that she wanted to [dual wield].
Such a simple minded thinking, well it’s already in the past.
“But this should be thanks to Satou-sama.” (Cell)
“I didn’t do anything, okay.” (Ryouta)
“You went and talked to the spirit of the dungeon, and that might’ve triggered something in him.” (Cell)
“Well, he isn’t as obedient as you think.” (Ryouta)
Since Tennessine’s a tsundere, and a really big one at that.
Nobody in Japan would’ve liked a male tsundere, but here people are very forgiving with that kind of attitude.
“The person is just hiding the fact that he’s embarrassed.
But once you get to know his feelings, then everything is all good.” (Cell)
Is what he blabbered.
He always praised me all this time, but I find that he’s awesome as well for thinking that.
“If this is going to be permanent, then I can start having the workers built the town.” (Cell)
While we were scouting around, I answered.
“Alright, I’ll go and confirm with him.” (Ryouta)
We’re worried that he’s going to increase more floors, so it’s best to check from the person himself.
“I don’t know anything about it.” (Tennessine)
When I asked him, he answered as what I predicted.
This tsundere guy.
Then, I asked him again.
“Even if you don’t know about it, the fact that there’s an additional floor now still stands.” (Ryouta)
“What I don’t know stays the same.
It just happened to increase.” (Tennessine)
This time he was just being tsun.
Don’t tell me he really doesn’t know about it
Does that mean that a spirit doesn’t have full control over their own dungeon
I mean they can do most things, but some are just unavoidable
Like when Arsenic was about to starve, or Nihonium who can make other dungeons stop dropping stuff.
Is this the same with Tennessine
“I see now, okay i trust you.
Sorry for asking something weird.” (Ryouta)
If the person himself doesn’t know it, then I can’t force them.
It’s a waste that Cell also doesn’t know, so we just have to wait and see.
First, I should report it back to Cell.
At that moment.
“Oi, wait a minute.” (Tennessine)
Tennessine called me, and handed me a black watermelon.
“What’s up” (Ryouta)
“It’s leftovers.” (Tennessine)
“Is that so.” (Ryouta)
“Hmph, if you want to sell it, then take it.” (Tennessine)
Really now Tennessine, just because I came here to hang out with you, you gave me a watermelon as a thank you gift.
No matter how tsundere you are, this is just too cute.
As I received it from him, thinking of eating it with everyone for dessert, I felt something weird.
There’s something weird when touching this watermelon.
A groove……. Was what I thought as I spun the watermelon around.
The surface of the watermelon has a pattern that looks like words.
A word that says [thanks], was written, and shockingly I looked at Tennessine.
I looked at him with a [why] look on my face.
“This watermelon……” (Ryouta)
“It’s a pattern.” (Tennessine)
No wait, I haven’t even said anything yet and you’re just putting it off as just patterns.
“You dumb or something Of course there’s patterns on a watermelon.” (Tennessine)
“No I know there’s patterns, but this looks just like words to me.” (Ryouta)
“That happens occasionally.” (Tennessine)
“I don’t think so.” (Ryouta)
“I already say it happens okay.
It’s a 1 in a 100 million chance of it happening okay.” (Tennessine)
He’s now on dere mode.
He insisted as if a cat is writing shakespeare poems on a keyboard.
“I don’t want anyone going into the new floors, they’re annoying.” (Tennessine)
“So we can’t go in” (Ryouta)
“Yeah, don’t ever go in.
Promise me!” (Tennessine)
While he was doing a choke grip, that too is just his tsundere phase.
Since I promised him, I should report Cell to cease operation for the time being.
“I’ll do that.
I spoke out my thoughts.
Remembering what Neptune said about the rankings, I think it’s an advice to Tennessine.
“Well, the more people come, the noisier it gets though.” (Ryouta)
“It’s always noisy.” (Tennessine)
He tried hiding his smile.
“If only we can adjust the drops based on numbers.” (Ryouta)
“Drop by number” (Tennessine)
“The more drops increased, the more people come, then the lesser the drop, the lesser people comes.
Another phenomenon that occurs similar to this is during the constant lunar cycle—–simply put, this would be a time when drops would double.” (Ryouta)
“……..Hmph, if the humans are getting too cocky, I’ll lower it.” (Tennessine)
“That’ll be great.” (Ryouta)
I’m sure he won’t do it, and in fact increase the drops.
With that, I’m almost done with Tennessine.
As I wanted to head back.
He called me once more.
I turned to face him, but he didn’t say anything.
Is he worrying about something again
“T-Thank you.” (Tennessine)
“What did you say………” (Ryouta)
With his face dyed red, I received another watermelon from him.
It was the biggest thanks that I’ve received in my life, and I was shocked beyond belief.
