Nihonium dungeon, the first basement floor.
I’ve been avoiding it for a while now.
In a sense, this is where I came from, and I brought the slime with me.
“So, let’s begin the test.” (Ryouta)
“Yes! How can I help you” (Slime)
The slime, which has transformed into a carbon copy of Carbon, tilted its head and asked.
It’s a great way to make sure we’re getting the most out of it.
Stretching my hand, the Slime tilted its head in confusion.
I coughed and brought my outstretched hand up to my mouth with a clenched fist.
“I’m going to kill a monster now, and you can try to pick up the drops.” (Ryouta)
“I understand.” (Slime)
We continued through the dungeon.
We soon encountered a skeleton.
The skeletons are not good with regular bullets.
So I went close to it and defeated it with close-combat.
It reminded me of the All-F days, and I felt a bit nostalgic as I crushed the bones of the monster.
The skeleton fell, and the HP-up seed appeared.
“Try to pick it up.” (Ryouta)
The slime nodded obediently, walked up to it, crouched down, and reached for the seed.
“Oh, …….” (Slime)
“So you can’t.” (Ryouta)
“What should I do” (Slime)
“No, it’s okay.
I knew there was a big chance it wouldn’t work.
It’s not …… your fault.” (Ryouta)
The Slime looked like it was about to cry as it couldn’t pick up the item.
What is this, it’s making me feel guilty.
“Since you’re level one, let’s see what happens when you try defeating one of them.” (Ryouta)
“I understand.” (Slime)
We leave and continue through Nihonium.
Not long afterwards, we had another encounter with a skeleton.
The slime has an S in dexterity and an F in everything else.
This means that its fighting ability is quite low, so I shoot a restraining bullet at the skeleton as soon as I encounter it.
After the skeleton was completely restrained, I gave the slime the go-ahead to go for it.
The slime nodded and went towards the skeleton with enthusiasm.
The girl looks young and cute.
The ability is almost all F, so the fighting style was also appropriate.
She punched the skeleton, kicked it, picked up a stone from the ground and beat it.
After nearly a minute of struggling against a fully restrained opponent, the skeleton finally fell.
And the seeds didn’t drop, of course.
“Well, I guess so, the drop is F.” (Ryouta)
“I’m sorry ……” (Slime)
“No, it’s not your fault.
Now, what to do” (Ryouta)
I thought about the slime.
It’ll be able to use the highest level 1 to eat a lot of magic fruit.
I’m not sure what to do.
It is a double meaning of magic fruit that can be eaten to learn magic.
If you eat it, you can learn magic unconditionally, but what you learn is random, and from the second time you eat it, your “highest level” is reduced by one.
But if you’re at max level 1 from the start, there’s no problem.
Its MP is also F, so the blessing is thin, but we can feed it a lot of magic fruits and make it a department store of techniques.
Alright, let’s go with that.
“Alright, let’s head home.” (Ryouta)
When I said that, I looked up and was a little surprised.
“What’s with the outfit” (Ryouta)
This is because the slime’s appearance was a little different than before.
The body – or more like its skin, the clothes it is wearing is different.
It’s a little bit more cute and fluffy.
“I’m not sure either.
Just now when defeating the Monster, my body transformed and became like this.” (Slime)
“Yes ……, that’s my body.” (Slime)
The slime pinched its clothes and said.
Right, when the Slime transforms, it has clothes.
Which means the clothes that we’re seeing is her “skin” so to speak.
No wait, if it’s a slime then—–It’s a mucous membrane
…………Or it’s a little different.
Basically the clothes are a part of the body.
“You’ve suddenly changed” (Ryouta)
“How do you undo it” (Ryouta)
“Well, ……” (Slime)
The slime reverted to its slime guise and then quickly transformed back into a human being.
There was a chirping sound, which was comical and a little funny.
The slime changed again, but its clothes were still soft.
“I’m sorry, I can’t seem to do anything else.” (Slime)
“Is this the result of defeating the ……Skeleton No way!” (Ryouta)
I thought of a possibility.
I took out my Know-It-Board and gave it to Slime, just in case it could use the seed.
“Try it out.” (Ryouta)
Slime nodded, took the Know-It-Board and used it.
Special Items F
I was even more surprised than before.
To my surprise, Slime’s dexterity was reduced to F.
Instead, its HP became S.
