“What are you wondering about” (Plumbum)
“I wonder if I’m allowed to do it.” (Ryouta)
“The person clearly wants it.” (Plumbum)
Plumbum answered as I looked at Eri.
While clinging to me, staring at me with agreeable eyes.
Strong …… It’s a pretty strong begging eye.
“Yes, let’s do it.” (Ryouta)
“… (Paa)” (Eri)
“You seem glad” (Ryouta)
“… (Nod nod nod)” (Eri)
A name suitable for Eri who wants to be named …… It is a serious responsibility.
I returned to the mansion from Plumbum and went out with Eri.
The city of Shikuro, which is crowded with the New Year holidays, is a vibrant city with smiles for both adventurers and non-adventurers.
While looking at it, I head straight toward the Dungeon Association.
The chairman is away now …”
I came to see Cell, but the receptionist who I knew answered with an apologetic look.
“He’s not here huh, guess I should head back first” (Ryouta)
“He will be here in a bit … Oh.”
“He told me to contact him whenever Satou-sama is here.
I will contact him so would you like to come again tomorrow”
I’ll come back after awhile.” (Ryouta)
With that said, I left the dungeon association.
If I said that I’m looking for him, Cell will come ASAP, but it’s a pain if he’s on a trip.
I’m not in a hurry.
I went out of the dungeon association and talked to Eri.
“Sorry Eri, wait a few days.
In the meantime, I’ll seriously think about it.” (Ryouta)
“… (Shake)” (Eri)
Eri shakes her head.
It doesn’t mean that it’s no good, but it looks like she doesn’t mind.
“Thank you, Eri.
The mimic that came out a while ago, I wish it came out now.” (Ryouta)
“I have something to look up.” (Ryouta)
Mimic, a special monster that exists outside the dungeon and drops “things that are not in the world” when defeated.
I have defeated it several times, but all of them dropped the things of the world I was from.
What I want now is a book about chemistry.
I don’t know much about Erythronium.
I know it ends with XXium, I knew that it was an element the moment I heard it.
Aluminum, magnesium, and even friends are Nihonium and Aurum.
However, I don’t know any more.
I don’t know the element Erythronium at all.
If I give her a name, I should know it properly.
“When Cell comes back, I’ll come to ask him to collect mimics.” (Ryouta)
“… (smiles)” (Eri)
With Eri nodding with a smile, I decided to come back for the time being.
“Good morning Yoda-san nanodesu.” (Emily)
The next morning, Emily’s gentle voice woke me up.
“Good morning, Emily” (Ryouta)
“Good morning, Yoda-san, there is a guest desu.” (Emily)
“Yes desu” (Emily)
Who is it…….
I get off the bed.
Eri, who sleeps together with me at night, curls up like a small animal and sleeps on the bed.
Coupled with the fluffy pajamas, it was adorable and I wanted to see it forever.
Who’s the guest” (Ryou ta)
“It’s Neptune desu.” (Emily)
“Neptune … Are Ran and Lil together” (Ryouta)
“They are desu.” (Emily)
I was a little relieved.
I read the three people as the H2O trio.
Each comes with the spirits of Oxygen and Hydrogen.
The image is that the three of us are always together and no matter what happens, but when only Neptune came before, it means that Ran and Lil were in a pinch, and from there it developed into a case of Tennessine.
Because of that, I first checked if there were two people.
I changed my clothes and left the room and headed for the drawing room as usual.
“… Eh, it’s not here.
There is no drawing room here.” (Ryouta)
After walking about 10 steps, I noticed that.
Inside the new mansion, Erironium Dungeon.
Eri who refuses anyone other than me and my friends does not put others in the dungeon, so there is no need for a guest room.
That’s why she didn’t make it.
“Well, Emily, where’s Neptune” (Ryouta)
“It’s the drawing room over there desu.” (Emily)
I nodded, leave the dungeon and return to the original mansion.
Normally, the room after moving becomes empty, and the air etc.
are all different.
The easiest thing to understand is that all the furniture is gone and there would be echoes.
It is not in this mansion.
Even if all of my friends move, this is still an Emily space—–it’s still a bright and warm space.
I proceed through the bright corridor and enter the guest room.
Neptune is sitting on the sofa, and Ran and Lil are standing behind as usual.
When standing on the back of two beautiful girls on opposite sides, Neptune, it is as natural as an angel and a pair of wings.
Sitting across from Neptune, he turned to me with a refreshing smile.
“Hi, good morning” (Neptune)
“What happened that you have to come this morning” (Ryouta)
“Yeah, I came to deliver this.
Ran, Lil.” (Neptune)
“Why am I doing it for him …” (Lil)
Ran responded with a smile, and Lil mumbled.
The two lifted something from behind Neptune, wrapped it around and put it between us.
“This is……” (Ryouta)
“A mimic” (Neptune)
The thing placed between us was the monster, mimic.
The edge of the open lid has a characteristic appearance with rough teeth, but now it is tied to a chain and the mouth does not open.
It was rattling, struggling to open its mouth.
“Why did you have this” (Ryouta)
“You asked yesterday, saying you’re looking for a mimic.” (Neptune)
“In the city … wasn’t it” (Neptune)
“Yes … but …” (Ryouta)
It’s probably an exchange with Eri.
I told Eri to wait until I found a mimic.
Certainly, it is a nuanced statement that I’m looking for a mimic.
“My acquaintance told me that, so I searched for it.” (Neptune)
“Did you look for it” (Ryouta)
“Pay back” (Ran)
“Give back” (Lil)
“Thanks to you, I was able to stay with Ran and Lil, so this is the least I could do.” (Neptune)
Thank you, honestly it helps.” (Ryouta)
It would be rude to not accept it.
For Neptune, being with them is that important, and I’m sure that the feeling of gratitude to me for protecting it is quite great.
Therefore, I decided to accept it obediently.
“What are you going to do with this Will you power up again” (Neptune)
“Ah no, it’s for a research” (Ryouta)
“Well, if you still need it, don’t hesitate to tell me.
It’s not as good as yours, but I have a messenger as well.” (Neptune)
“Oh, I’ll take that up on your offer” (Ryouta)
Neptune stands up and starts walking with Ran and Lil.
Ran bowed to me, and Lil was dissatisfied as usual, but threw only a glance.
Two people of different types, I just thought that if I had a chance, I would like to get used to Neptune and listen to the beginning.
The moment the Neptune put his hand on the doorknob and opened the door.
Emily was behind the door, and her knocking hand got tangled.
“Oops, this wasn’t the right time.” (Neptune)
“What’s wrong, Emily” (Ryouta)
“Yoda-san, there’s a guest desu.” (Emily)
“Again, who is it this time” (Ryouta)
“Everyone is outside desu.” (Emily)
I went out into the corridor and looked out from the window.
There were many people in the courtyard of the mansion.
“Most of the faces are …” (Ryouta)
At first glance, there are people affiliated to Cliff and Margaret.
Not only that, Eric, the gourmet, and MaoMi, the director of Flint Dungeon Association.
There were people who I was involved with so far.
“Fufu, I think I was the first one.” (Neptune)
“First one” (Ryouta)
I looked at Neptune lined up side by side.
“Eh Then everyone here is …” (Ryouta)
Look at their feet.” (Neptune)
“… It’s true! Everyone has caught a mimic!” (Ryouta)
“I think the rumors have spread.” (Neptune)
“Because of me saying it How” (Ryouta)
“There are quite a few faces I know, of course because of you being involved with them.
Isn’t everyone giving back” (Neptune)
I remembered that.
The people in the garden were all the ones I helped with.
As I saw it, everyone was catching a mimic.
Even roughly counting it, it exceeds ten.
“In other words, this is your humanity.” (Neptune)
