Chapter 102 – Real HP
Featured Image Credited: Girl firing missiles
Nihonium, first floor.
As usual, the dungeon had nobody in it so I decimated any Skeletons that came into paths with me with my Lightning Bullets.
As I fired the bullet, lightning stuck down from above the ceiling, crushing the Skeleton’s bones apart with a single blow.
The power was sufficient, by far out of all the special bullets, this one had the highest damage output without any fusion or boost.
[Since originally the cost is high too.] (Ryouta)
The Lightning bullet is a special bullet dropped from Aulum Dungeon’s gold dust which when hatched into a rogue monster drops the lightning bullet.
In actuality, it’s like firing around 3k Piro per shot.
Compared to the normal bullet that is dropped from vegetables, or the Homing Bullet that is dropped by trash, this is by far the highest cost bullet.
However, I was firing that bullet like it was nothing.
Whenever I encountered a Skeleton, I’ll fire the Lightning bullet and overkill it.
The moment I saw them I’ll shoot, and if I missed I’ll just randomly fire until I land a hit.
When there’s no enemy I won’t need to reload, as per usual I’ll keep on firing.
When I was on Aulum’s fourth floor and once again going down another floor which shouldn’t technically exist, I defeated a monster and it dropped an item which allowed me to choose one of the bullets that I have and infinitized one.
Basically an Infinite Lightning Bullet.
Using it liberally——or more of not needing to restraint myself when shooting.
After going around the first floor once, my pouch was filled with the HP seeds.
I then took those out of the dungeon.
Heading to a place secluded from others, I placed the seeds on the ground and kept a distance away.
After waiting for a while, the seeds hatched into Skeletons.
Same as before, I randomly fired the Lighting Bullet, and all of them turned into drops of Freezing Bullets.
With that, I have finally replenished my stocks from the time I used them up in Aulum.
What’s more, without spending a single resource.
Thus, today’s job was to replenish my bullet stocks by defeating more rogue monsters. Back in the day if I wanted to consume zero cost I would have to waste my time defeating them using CQC(Close Quarter Combat), and if I wanted to reduce the time I had to waste some resources which basically means using bullets to defeat them.
[So I get the best of both worlds….] (Ryouta)
I looked at the gun that was loaded with the Infinite Lightning Bullet.
Due to having this, I could shorten the time of replenishing my bullets with zero cost.
This became way more convenient than I thought.
Picking up all the Freezing Bullets, I went back to the dungeon’s second floor.
The monsters were zombies, which weren’t any stronger than the Skeletons. Thus, using the same method as before, I fired the Infinite Lightning Bullet generously and collected more seeds in my pouch, and once it was full I went out and hatched them all into rogue monsters and get my Flame Bullets.
Same thing with the third floor, I defeated the Mummies and in return, gotten a huge amount of Recovery Bullets.
Just doing those alone, I’ve wasted only about 2 to 3 hours. I was doing it since this morning and it hasn’t even reached noon yet.
If I have this Infinite Lightning Bullet, I can do basically anything was what I thought.
[…….That’s right, nothing is that easy.] (Ryouta)
The fourth floor of Nihonium, the Mummy that drops the Stamina seeds and Restraint Bullet from the rogue monster.
Though at first glance it looked exactly like the Mummies from the third floor, but there was one decisive difference.
In order to get it’s drop, I had to use the Annihilation Bullet to damage it and at last use one Recovery Bullet to deal the finishing blow.
I fired the Infinite Lightning Bullet at an encountering Mummy.
The Mummy was annihilated instantly, but the bandages remained.
I tried rapidly firing the Infinite Lightning Bullet at the bandages.
It was nice that it’s infinite as I would only need to hold the trigger as I fired.
The constant bombard of lightning strikes changed the shape of the ground.
Though the bandages still remained there, as if it was undamaged at all.
I took out my other gun and loaded the Recovery Bullets that I just replenished and fired.
The bandages with the power to withstand a hundred strikes of lightning was turned to crisp with just 1 Recovery Bullet.
It was those types of monsters which had to use a special way to deal the last blow in order to defeat it.
[Given the opportunity, I would like to get an Infinite Recovery Bullet next.] (Ryouta)
The Infinite Lightning Bullet increased the efficiency rate of gathering most special bullets, and thinking of my next objective in mind.
Noon came, and after finishing replenishing my bullets to a certain extend, it was time to head back home.
My three-story home that has the function of guarding the Magic Storm.
The moment I went in, I saw Emily and Elza doing something.
The first floor was used as a garage, so we placed the dropped transfer function there, thus Elza from The Swallow’s Repayment was assigned to become an exclusive employee here.
That Elza was doing something together with Emily.
[I’m home.] (Ryouta)
[Yoda-san, welcome home nanodesu!] (Emily) (TLN: Yes Emily I’m back!!)
[It’s been a long time Ryouta-san, you’ve finally decided to come back.] (Elza)
[Yeah since yesterday.] (Ryouta)
Elza who I’ve not seen in a while was showing me her usual sweet smile.
Though I’ve finally came back from Indole yesterday, I hurriedly went to Nihonium early in the morning. Thus, this was the first time meeting Elza since coming back.
[Thank you so much Ryouta-san, we were immediately notified about what happened there, and Master was extremely happy.] (Elza)
[Well you’ve been helping us this whole time too. At least I made a profit there.] (Ryouta)
[It’s not just a little! It was a tremendously huge business. Master even told us to hire another exclusive staff to be sent over there.] (Elza)
[Was it Ena?] (Ryouta)
[Ena’s field of expertise was limited to Vegetables, thus we needed someone who is an expert at Gold, thus it would be better to dispatch a person who is familiar with it.] (Elza)
[I see.] (Ryouta)
Since it’s the trading shop from Shikuro, it was obvious that there weren’t anyone specialized in deducing the prices of minerals.
[By the way, what were the two of you discussing?] (Ryouta)
[I was just filling in the passbook with Emily’s purchases.] (Elza)
It was the first time hearing about it.
If I were to translate their meaning to my world, then it would be a bankbook used to record bank transactions on a deposit account……..
Looking at the 130cm Emily, her hands were holding onto what seemed to be the passbook.
Her figure reminded me of an elementary student coming out of a post office while bringing their piggy bank along.
Noticing my stare, Emily started explaining why.
[Although Elza-san has been dispatched here, but it’s not so good to place cash at home desu, thus I decided to transfer the amount into the bank desu.] (Emily)
[Ah so that’s why you needed the passbook to transfer the money into the bank.] (Ryouta)
So they used the same system as our banks too huh.
[Yes desu! Yoda-san yoda-san~] (Emily) (TLN: I’m already starting to miss her)
[What’s the matter?] (Ryouta)
Emily called for me, I looked down and saw that her eyes were shining brightly.
[Look at this desu.] (Emily)
[By looking you meant the passbook? ——–Ooh, it’s more than a million Piro!] (Ryouta)
[Yes desu, the amount was this morning’s drops that I’d obtained desu.] (Emily)
[That’s amazing~ This is the first time seeing so many zero digits on a passbook.] (Ryouta)
[Is that so desu?] (Emily)
Emily had a really surprised look on her face.
[Well I’ve only ever seen my own passbook, and the last it had been around 120k per month. It was not an income which I can afford to save money. At that time I always felt like dying, and when it’s at the end of the month my account balance could be compared to my current HP.] (Ryouta)
When I recalled my past, I was filled with sadness and frustration.
Every single day having to do overtime at the black company, and continued to be exploited, thus my HP was always blinking red and was on the verge of dying.
[Then shouldn’t Yoda-san make one passbook as well desu~] (Emily)
[Yoda-san right now would soon reach ten million—–No, 100 Million desu!] (Emily)
[…..That’s true.] (Ryouta)
I nodded, it certainly is.
All this time whatever I earned I would just spend them all or leave them aside, but I thought that it might not be bad to have the enjoyment of saving money.
