TLN Note: Shadowverse’s new expansion and Fate event was just released, I’m super happy! and also from my sponsors! THANK YOU!
At night, we had a party at the second floor’s living room.
There were various foods being placed on top of the table. It was as grand as the Hotel Viking, and all of them were made by Emily.
As of right now, the one’s surrounding the table were the Ryouta Family and Elza.
Being the only outsider over here, Elza was puzzled while holding a cup that had drinks being poured in it.
[Is it alright for me to join in too?] (Elza)
[The more the merrier nodesu~ We’ve also done this many times in the past when we were inside the dungeon. My mom loves parties and would always put up excuses and say [It’s time to party~!] nodesu.] (Emily)
[What a lively mom you have.] (Alice)
[We would also have her most favorite wine that was dropped in a dungeon and was being kept for a year plus nodesu.] (Emily)
[When you put it that way, it’s rather hard to imagine what kind of mother was she.] (Ryouta)
[Probably someone similar to Eve-chan!] (Alice)
After Alice said that, she went ahead and hugged Eve.
Even that looked like a small animal holding onto her carrot had a look of annoyance, as Alice embraced and cuddled her while she was casually holding onto her carrot.
『Celebrating • Emily being a 1 Million Player』party, and for the main guest Emily, we applaud which made it even more lively.
[Ryouta-san, look at this!] (Celeste)
Celeste called me as I thought what was it and turned around, she was holding onto a plate with both her hands, wanting me to see it.
The plate showed Alice’s friends, Boney-chan and Jumpy-san. Other than that there were two dolls of Boney-chan and Jumpy-san that looked really similar to the original ones.
The two body which had the same deformed size, and the material being used was indeed cloth.
The two original body looked at the dolls curiously, which made them create a rattling and bouncy noise.
[They aren’t running away, they’re actually on my hands!] (Celeste)
[That’s great Celeste. However, what’s up with the two dolls?] (Ryouta)
[I made them.] (Celeste)
[You made them? Celeste did? ……That’s awesome, if you put those inside a crane machine, I think people won’t find it weird at all.] (Ryouta)
Celeste’s eyes were shaped into hearts while looking at Boney-chan and Jumpy-san.
Even though several days ago, when Celeste tried to get close to them they would immediately hid themselves, thinking about it this was a huge step forward.
Thus, thinking it that way it was a huge accomplishment to be had.
[In any case this is awesome, I know that you like dolls and what not, but I didn’t expect to you to actually make one by yourself. What’s more it’s really cute.] (Ryouta)
[Celeste=san awesome nodesu! Yoda-san’s do——] (Emily)
[Wa~ Wa~ Wa~ Wa~!!] (Celeste)
For some reason Celeste raised her voice, not letting Emily finished her sentence.
Sounds like my name was being mentioned but what was it?
Celeste who suddenly raised her voice soon after become discouraged.
That was because Boney-chan and Jumpy-san which was on top of Celeste’s palms was frightened by her voice, immediately reacted to it and ran away.
They jumped down onto the table making rattling and bouncing noises, and in a second, they were climbing onto Alice’s clothes.
The disappointed Celeste, looked at the two of them and reached out her hands in sorrow.
Seems like this would need a few more days before her dreams will come true.
And thus the party continued.
Having the highest quality of ingredients and the greatest atmosphere, the time passed quickly as we were having so much fun.
As I took a deep breath and lean against the wall, allowing my body to gradually move downwards onto the floor, Elza saw me and walked towards my direction.
[Thanks for the hard work.] (Elza)
[You too. Thanks for today, it must’ve been a pain to move around this much.] (Ryouta)
[It’s alright, it’s my job to handle these. But then again it was amazing.] (Elza)
[Ryouta-san’s family. Even though everyone is this amazing but they are harmonic. Especially Eve-chan who was once known as the Killing Rabbit could actually join with normal people which really surprised me.] (Elza)
[It’s because of Emily. You’ve also noticed something when entering this living room right? This warmness and brightness as if it were created by magic, it’s all due to the power of her.] (Ryouta)
[…….Though I think of Emily-san as a normal person.] (Elza)
[A normal person?] (Ryouta)
I wondered what that implied, as I tilted my head and looked at Elza.
[Not as a Saint or a God, but as a normal person. A normal person would not make their enemy’s house so bright and warm for them, more like it’s impossible.] (Elza)
[Ah, I see your point.] (Ryouta)
[To me, this house resembles a mirror. It reflects the image that Emily wants to portray to the person she adores.] (Elza)
After finishing her sentence Elza looked straight at me.
The person that Emily wanted to portray too…..is that me?
[Hence why I think that Ryouta-san is an amazing person.] (Elza)
[Are you sure about that?] (Ryouta)
[And that’s why I’m really happy that I can work under Ryouta-san. Though I was recently dispatched, but please take care of me from today onwards.] (Elza)
[Yeap, I will do my best.] (Ryouta)
Elza and I then firmly shook each other’s hands.
And thus the loud and lively party continued until late at night.
The next day, in order to meet me who was doing my daily routine at Nihonium, Clint called me over to his office.
Though I wanted to do it right after my routine, but it was something urgent thus I stopped my routine halfway and went straight to the Dungeon Association.
After knocking, I went inside the chief’s office and saw that Clint was sitting down relaxingly while drinking.
On top of the drink was a layer of white that looked like paper being wrapped with medicine stacking as high as a mountain, he drank it all in a gulp like it was water.
Was the emergency to give him a stomach medicine? Though he seemed fine and could even drink it without water.
While thinking of such nonsense I spoke.
[Are you alright?] (Ryouta)
[Aah, I’m okay. Because of this my mood was slightly lifted.] (Clint)
[By fine, you don’t mean drinking that terrible looking medicine right.] (Ryouta)
[Don’t worry about it, it’s just plain sugar.] (Clint)
[That isn’t medicine then!!!] (Ryouta)
[But if I do this then I would feel better.] (Clint)
[You’re having your priorities wrong!!] (Ryouta)
This guy will definitely get diabetes in the near future, as I thought to myself.
For now if I don’t continue the talk, as I was thinking about it I sat next to the sofa where Clint was sitting.
[Actually, there recently was a new Dungeon being born.] (Clint)
Is it those kinds of talks again.
During the time when I came to this world, there were already two dungeons being born which was Nihonium and Selen.
It’s quite frequent, I suppose but wasn’t it suppose to be rare or something.
Isn’t it quite likely as I keep hearing about it.
Though, Clint gave off a serious expression.
His seriousness was so severe that on the table there was a small box that was open, he would just grab the cubic sugar and eat it as is sort of seriousness.
[It was recently born in a village that doesn’t have a single dungeon whatsoever, which was fine and all, but the problem was when it came to life it ate up half of the entire village.] (Clint)
[It swallow the village.] (Ryouta)
[It happens from time to time, where the dungeon would be right below the village, but to swallow the village…..as it sometimes would take over the village.] (Clint)
[That is….indeed troublesome.] (Ryouta)
This was something that I could not imagine happening, but that seriousness he showed made me believed in his words.
[Since it was so sudden it swallow some of the villagers too, thus many rescuers went to help them, but the main issue is the rogue dungeon right now.] (Clint)
[Rogue Dungeon?] (Ryouta)
[The term meant that a dungeon whose structure inside would change every time someone enters. Hence why sending out rescuers is a difficult task.] (Clint)
[So you would be played into it infinitely……] (Ryouta)
Clint then stared at me while I was murmuring
[Thus I had to send the elites which is the Mighty Hero. I beg of you, I want you to head over to the new dungeon and save the villagers. Only you can help in this!!!] (Clint)
Clint then placed his hands on the table and stood up, his momentum was so quick that it looked like the table would be lifted up.
[I got it.] (Ryouta)
[Really! THANK YOU! Once again thank you for your help!!] (Clint)
After receiving a map from CLint who was desperately thanking me over and over again, I quickly left the Dungeon Association building.
A Dungeon that swallows a village huh…..if I don’t hurry over things might get worse.
