“Take this nanodesu!” (Emily)
Selenium dungeon, second floor.
Emily’s hammer pierced deep into the Bicorn’s brain.
The third attack from Emily’s hammer broke the two corners of the bicorn as planned.
The Bicorn staggers and eventually falls down.
The figure of the Bicorn disappears from the dungeon.
“As expected, Emily, the current blow was wonderful.” (Ryouta)
“It’s all thanks to Yoda-san’s support nanodesu.” (Emily)
“That’s not it.
You jumped in from outside the territory of the Bicorn and hit it at once by changing the force before damping into velocity and potential energy.
That’s a fine play.” (Ryouta)
“I was able to do it because I’m always thinking after Yoda-san desu.” (Emily)
The two of us complimented each other.
By the way, Eri is still clinging to my leg today.
Since there’s nothing to be afraid of the Dungeon Master, and she doesn’t want to leave me, she followed along.
Partly because of that, I entrusted Emily with the subjugation of the Bicorn.
While Emily and I were talking after the battle, adventurers were moving one after another in the dungeon.
All monsters disappear; a phenomenon that occurs when a Dungeon Master appears.
We came in response to the subjugation, but it seems that the adventurers were waiting here and there in the dungeon in anticipation of an early subjugation.
Because of that, even though it was less than three minutes after the Bicorn collapsed, drop production had already resumed here and there.
“Well, I should head back as well.
I’m going to Plumbum on the way.” (Ryouta)
“I’m going to Arsenic desu.” (Emily)
I’ll be back at the usual time at night.” (Ryouta)
As soon as I said that, we said our goodbyes and parted ways.
Suddenly, I bumped into someone.
“Oh, I’m sorry.”
He was an adventurer.
The man bowed to me and apologized and tried to pass by.
“Wait a sec, you dropped this.” (Ryouta)
“Oh, I’m sorry.”
When I picked up what he dropped after bumping into him, the man received it with an apologetic look.
However, he could grab it properly and it dropped once more.
The things that were put together in a bag are scattered on the ground.
It was garbage.
Most of the food is leftovers, and it is garbage that is mixed with various things.
“I’m sorry! I’ll get rid of it right now.
If I leave it alone, it will become rogue monsters.”
The man said so, repacked the trash in the bag and thrust it into his backpack.
He bowed down again and thanked me for the lost item and left as it was.
“… Sorry to bother you Emily, there’s something I got to do.” (Ryouta)
“Yes desu, we’ll meet again later desu.” (Emily)
After parting from Emily, I chased after the man with Eri who was still clinging on me.
The man who caught up was struggling with the monster, Treant.
The movement of his body was slow, and it is a movement that is not like an adventure whose motto is to have a “safe farm”.
Although I was watching it for a while, the man couldn’t beat the Treant and fell into a pinch.
He was blown away and slammed on the back against the wall, and the Treant continued to pursue.
The gun was pulled out and the pursuit branches were blown away.
I ran in between the man and the Treant.
“Oh, you are …”
“I’m glad I chased after you.
I apologize for taking your farm later.” (Ryouta)
Cutting off his words, I shoot a flame bullet at the Treant.
A flame with a special effect wraps the whole body of the Treant and makes it burn.
“Chase after me … but why”
“It was because of the trash you showed from a while ago” (Ryouta)
“Garbage That was my fault—-“
“It’s not because of that.
You can’t go home, right” (Ryouta)
“That’s right, but……”
He showed a complicated face.
I knew it.
It was a scene I often saw when I was in the office a long time ago.
The more people who can’t go home due to a lot of overtime work, the more garbage that gives a sense of life is scattered on and around the desk.
Convenience store rice balls, sandwich wrapping paper, coffee cans that have been drunk, etc.
Garbage in this world is more dangerous.
After all, if you leave it alone, it will become a rogue monster.
One should dispose of their trash immediately, that is the iron rule of this world.
So the only conclusion I can think of is that he has been staying in the dungeon for many days.
If you look closely, there is a fairly dark circle under the eyes of the stunned man.
“Is work hard” (Ryouta)
“Well … I have a quota, and I can’t bother my family.”
“But it’s not my blood-related family, it’s a family.
We’re a family that sells at home, so everyone is a family.”
“……I see” (Ryouta)
My eyebrows were twitching, and I couldn’t stop myself.
“How much quota do you have left” (Ryouta)
“Since the day before yesterday, so about half left”
“The day before yesterday” (Ryouta)
My eyebrows became more apparent with its movements.
“Today I’ll fill it in first, and if I work hard at night and get back yesterday’s share, it will be a little easier tomorrow.”
“Isn’t it better to take a break after that” (Ryouta)
“No, it’s a nuisance to my family–“
The man tried to repeat the same word, so I interrupted it.
“If it’s for your family, wouldn’t it be a nuisance if you break down unreasonably” (Ryouta)
“It wouldn’t be a nuisance if you were late.” (Ryouta)
“That’s … yes …”
The man is shaking.
I don’t know how much brainwashing this kind of black party did to him, so I decided to persuade him not to irritate him for the time being.
“Is that really okay”
Another woman’s voice interrupted our conversation.
A woman in the early thirties wearing glasses, her hair was cut short and her raised eyes felt tight.
The woman did not give me a glance after she appeared, but approached the man with a stare, took his hand and stared straight into his eyes.
“Are you going to betray the whole family who accepted you”
“It’s the family who picked you up when you have nowhere to go.
Don’t you think you should be grateful just to be able to work as a backup for the family”
“Well, that’s … yes.”
“It’s a fool’s imitation to listen to the playful words of outsiders.
Look at this.”
A man who was surprised to see the paper presented by the woman.
“Yes, your grades.
It’s improving a little.
Now you’re gaining momentum.
It’s also thanks to the family’s backup.
Don’t you think so”
“In the first place, do you think that you can take a rest like that among other adventurers”
“… That’s right, I’m a piece of ** of a slug, so I have to do my best twice as much as other people.”
“I’m glad you understand.
I look forward to your further growth.”
“Yeah, watch and see!”
…… I was speechless, it’s a wonderful brainwashing.
The man was motivated in an instant because of the woman’s skillful wordplays.
However, it cannot be left as it is.
There is only tragedy before you can work further by whipping from this state.
I have to stop him somehow.
Everyone on the spot noticed something unusual.
A nice scent that tickles the nasal cavity, this scent!
When I turned around, Emily was cooking with a fire.
The scent is the warmth of Emily’s dishes, which comes from the pot.
“Emily, I didn’t know you’re still here” (Ryouta)
“I understand the meaning of the garbage desu.
I have also lived in a dungeon desu.” (Emily)
Emily lived in a dungeon before she met me.
Although it was different from mine, she knew that he lived in a dungeon because he had garbage.
Emily offered a nice scented soup to the man.
“Here you go nanodesu.” (Emily)
“You don’t have to rest, but it’s better to keep your body warm desu.” (Emily)
A cup of soup is not bad …”
The man said so, and after glancing at the woman, he drank the soup.
The man’s face relaxed at once.
With a once frightened, tired and hollow eyes, but the moment he ate Emily’s soup, a happy expression emerged.
Holding the warm soup with both hands, he drank slowly while blowing on it many times.
“Have some refill desu.”
“Yes, thank you……”
The man repeatedly thanked Emily, received the new soup, sat down and drank the soup.
“Thanks to the two of you.
I think I was doing something wrong.”
An inspiring man, an adventurer approached one after another, invited by the scent of soup.
“Oh, isn’t this Emily’s food Can we have some”
“Of course desu.” (Emily)
Then I put it in as usual.
It’s the chicken I just picked up.”
“Is pig alright”
“Come on, I’ll get some vegetables upstairs.”
Adventurers gathered around Emily one after another and received Emily’s soup in exchange for ingredients.
Emily cooks the ingredients further and gives it to everyone, and the scent attracts more adventurers and new ingredients.
It was a little feast, a kind of perpetual motion.
“By the way” (Ryouta)
A man who was hard to work with suddenly asked and was confused.
“Don’t try to do it alone.
When it’s hard, say it’s hard, so ask the people around you for help.”
“No, but … it’s a nuisance even though it’s someone else.”
“It’s not, and it’s even more troubling to fall down because of that attitude.”
“Well, I don’t really care.
I only came here for Emily’s cooking.”
“Such a tsundere.
I saw this guy follow you yesterday.”
“——-No! I didn’t do that!”
An exciting adventurer, a poker, hard-working man.
In the second basement floor of Selenium, which was dominated by Emily in a blink of an eye, it seemed that I was no longer in play.
However, I thought this was fine.
Although the man’s facial expression came in from surprise, he gradually accepted everyone’s words, and in the end he was deeply moved and wept.
When no brainwashing was effective anymore, the woman left with a frustrated click and left silently.
