Plumbum dungeon, Plumbum’s room.
“So, are you going to enter the dungeon with your daughter from now on, eh” (Plumbum)
Plumbum, who had listened to Yuki’s story to the end with her usual curiosity, asked.
“That’s why she’s my daughter.” (Ryouta)
This is what I’ve heard so often since our “first collaboration” with Carbon, and once I admit it, I feel like I’m going to be regarded as her daughter until the end.
I chuckle and think for a moment.
“Well, I guess sometimes.
I’m sure Yuki has things she wants to do, and so does Vanadium.” (Ryouta)
“I’m not sure if Yuki thinks the same.” (Plumbum)
“It’s probably the same with Vanadium.” (Plumbum)
“The same what” (Ryouta)
“She wants to do what she wants.
I think she wants to follow you and help you.” (Plumbum)
I was strangely convinced by Plumbum’s words.
Not only her, but all spirits have this tendency.
They only do what they want to do, and they don’t give up on one thing: their obsession.
Aurum wants to go out, and Plumbum wants to stay in this room and listen to what I have to say.
Carbon is a bit self-absorbed, she likes to “test” herself, and Tenessinne is a bit of a tsundere.
All the spirits tend to be like that, and when Plumbum told me that, I was very convinced.
“I think you’re right.” (Ryouta)
“Why don’t you ask her once” (Plumbum)
“Let’s do that.” (Ryouta)
We returned from Plumbum’s room to the mansion —— the dungeon of Vanadium.
It was quiet in the mansion.
In the past, when I was in the old mansion, there was a certain amount of noise, even in the daytime, because there was a place where Elza and Ena were bought.
And because it was an ordinary mansion, you only had to look through one window or one wall to see the city of Shikuro.
You can hear the typical sounds of life in the city during the day.
But the new house, Vanadium Dungeon, is different.
There is a window in the wall to make it look like a dungeon, but it’s just an object that looks like a window.
There is no city beyond it, and therefore it is quiet.
I walk through the house.
In the salon, I found Yuki and Vanadium.
“I’m back.” (Ryouta)
“Welcome home, Papa.” (Yuki)
“…… (Hugs).” (Vanadium)
I called out to them and they all turned to me at once.
Yuki walked towards me with a calmness that belied her youthful appearance, and Vanadium almost dashed up to me and hugged me.
“What were you doing” (Ryouta)
“We were talking.” (Yuki)
“…… (Nods nods).” (Vanadium)
“What sort of story” (Ryouta)
“She told me all the cool things about papa.
She said she’s having a lot of fun because of papa.” (Yuki)
“Is that so” (Ryouta)
I looked at the Vanadium.
At the same time, I was a little embarrassed.
It’s embarrassing to have people talk about you in places you don’t know, and if they’re complimenting you, the embarrassment is multiplied.
Not caring one jot about my embarrassment, Vanadium hugged me, looked up at me, and nodded.
I guess someone’s getting along pretty well.” (Ryouta)
“Well, we’re both named after each other by papa.” (Yuki)
“…… I see.” (Ryouta)
Technically, I didn’t name Vanadium, but that’s about it.
“I need to talk to you about something.” (Ryouta)
“Yes, what is it” (Yuki)
“From now on, I’m going to go into the dungeon every now and then, what about you two Do you want to come with me” (Ryouta)
Yuki was flabbergasted for a moment.
“What’s up” (Ryouta)
“Its …… I was going to follow papa the whole time, but…” (Yuki)
“Is that so” (Ryouta)
Because papa gave me some items to protect myself, isn’t that it’s for” (Yuki)
I see, that’s how she took it.
“Uhmm….Is it that…..I can’t go” (Yuki)
“…… (Stare)” (Vanadium)
Both of them stare at me at the same time.
Yuki looks like she’s about to cry.
“No no no no that’s not it.
I’m glad you’re coming with me.” (Ryouta)
“…… (Shine).” (Vanadium)
Yuki and Vanadium, both of them nodded happily.
It makes me happy just seeing them being so overjoyed.
