Chapter 125 – Eve’s Memories
Even the Skeleton was surprised by my sudden appearance as it mechanically moved to swing it’s fist at me.
I immediately insta-killed it with Repetition and X1 Seed Get which was sent into my pouch.
After defeating the Skeleton, I regained my composure and once again turned and scanned through my surroundings. Indeed, I wasn’t mistaken that we were now inside Nihonium’s first floor.
The surrounding was filled with limestone which was basically the characteristics of Nihonium, and if I were to cupped my hands behind my ears and paid close attention, I could hear the sounds of Margaret and co. chattering about.
Besides me who could use Nihonium dungeon to it’s fullest, there were other equally unique people hunting this dungeon, people like Margaret who hunts airs and sell them.
With that out of the way, I can once again confirmed that this was indeed Nihonium.
And as I turned to look at the side, I could see a light dimming just right on the height of my waist.
It was the size of a Miniature Light Bulb dimly illuminating the surrounding.
This was my first time encountering such object.
With caution, I inched my fingers closer to the light, and as I touched it, the light overflowed and enveloped me.
The light was bright enough that it forced me to shut my eyelids and holding my hands out to block the excessive light.
After the light was out, I was back inside the mansion’s room.
From outside the room, Emily called my name with a worrying look.
[I’m so glad that Yoda-san came back desu.] (Emily)
Emily breathed a sigh of relieved, and inside my pouch was the HP Seed——So whatever happened just now wasn’t a dream or anything. Confirming that, I stepped out of the room and stood face to face with Emily.
The moment I stepped foot out of the room, the door that was opened previously was slammed shut right behind me.
Was someone inside, I thought while asking Emily some questions.
[Did I disappear just now?] (Ryouta)
[Yes desu. Where did you went desu?] (Emily)
[Hmmm, instead of explaining it, it’s quicker to just show it to you.] as I said that, I once again fired one Trash Bullet to open to the door.
[Emily, trying going in, you’ll understand.] (Ryouta)
[? So if I try it I would understand desu?] (Emily)
[I got it desu.] (Emily)
Emily then stepped foot into the opened door.
[Hae? Wh, who’s there nanodesu?] (Emily)
[I see I see, so this is how it looks like from a third person perspective.] (Ryouta)
Seems like you can’t hear what’s inside the room. From my angle, I could see Emily was perplexed and puzzled at the same time.
And after some time, she disappeared.
I wonder which dungeon she flew off too.
I silently stood there waiting, while the door was still opened even when the Trash Bullet was long gone.
As I imagined, when the room was being used, the door would not close on it’s own.
After waiting for quite some time, Emily finally returned.
She came back with a carrot on her hand.
[I, I’m back nanodesu.] (Emily)
[So you got the gist of things?] (Ryouta)
[Yes desu. This room is incredible desu.] (Emily)
While holding onto a carrot, she stepped out of the room to where I was and the door slammed shut once again.
[Seems like this magical door allows you to teleport to and fro to any dungeon of your liking. I guess Emily went to Teruru Basement Floor 2?] (Ryouta)
[Oh, yes desu. I was also thinking of making a delicious carrot soup for Eve to drink later desu.] (Emily)
[Fumu……Guess in the meantime I should experiment some more.] (Ryouta)
After opening the door with the Trash Bullet, the destination that I was thinking right now was Aurum’s First Floor.
In an instance I was sent flying to Aurum. While there were adventurers looking for some gold, I went outside the dungeon. As this dungeon changes its layout every time someone enters, I had quite a bit of difficulty going out but eventually I safely came out.
It was the Village of Indole.
The Indole that was in my eyes was way more developed than when I last visited.
New buildings were being built one after the other, goods being overflowed in stores, and generally a lively crowd.
All by the help of Aurum—-The power of Money(Gold).
I wanted to sightsee a little more, but the guard that was administering the dungeon entrance yelled: “Time for the next entry” and I reluctantly went back inside the dungeon.
Aurum is a rogue-like dungeon, as mentioned before, the layouts of the dungeon would change every time when someone enters, so they have decided a time limit for each adventurers that went in so as to not bother the adventurers that were already inside.
If I miss this I would not be able to return for a while.
Thinking that I would have another chance to look around aurum, I entered the first floor, blending with the other adventures, and wandered around till I found the spotlight and teleported back into the mansion.
When I returned, not only Emily, but Celeste and Alice was beside her.
[Welcome back Ryouta-san. I’ve heard from Emily just now.] (Celeste)
[That’s awesome! I didn’t know there was such an amazing room in this mansion!] (Alice)
[Where have you been Yoda-san.] (Emily)
[I just came back from Aurum. While I was at it I went out—-to the Village of Indole before returning.] (Ryouta)
[Indole!? You went there in an instant?] Alice was surprised. As an ex-resident of Indole, she knew the distance between Shikuro and Indole and thus was surprised at how fast I came back.
[Hey hey, Ryouta i want to go to Indole too~] (Alice)
[I got it, I’m gonna open the door now.] (Ryouta)
[Can I try using it too?] (Celeste)
[Sure. Moreover, I was about to check whether two or more person can enter at the same time.] (Ryouta)
I opened the gate again with the Trash Bullet.
I was curious thus I tried casting [Repetition] on the door, but it had no effect.
I guess it would open if I managed to defeat it or something.
Alice and Celeste both entered the room with excitement.
Alice was the first to disappear, and the next was Celeste—-
[What’s wrong?] (Ryouta)
[The voice said that I can’t go into a floor that I have never been to before.] (Celeste)
[So you can’t go then?] (Ryouta)
[Seems so, there was a dungeon called Uranium that I always wanted to go, but because I have never actually set foot there before, it seems it doesn’t allow me to go there.] (Celeste)
[Try Aurum and see?] (Ryouta)
[Etto…..It doesn’t seem to be working either.] (Celeste)
[How about the first floor of Nihonium?] (Ryouta)
[Not allowed.] (Celeste)
[Then try Teruru Basement’s 5th floor?] (Ryouta)
[That is——] (Celeste)
Celeste suddenly disappeared.
Seems like she disappeared the same way as how Emily and Alice was.
[What’s the meaning of this nanodesu?] (Emily)
[This might be my speculation, but it looked as though the room does not allow someone to teleport to a dungeon that the person has not been before, which meant that it knew of which dungeon and which floors you’ve been before.] (Ryouta)
[Oh, now I understand, that’s why Celeste couldn’t go to Nihonium but she could teleport to Teruru nodesu.] (Emily)
[That’s how it is.] (Ryouta)
Alright, now that I have confirmed that multiple people could use it by opening the door once.
Next up is.
[Emily, I might need your help.] (Ryouta)
[Leave it to me desu.] (Emily)
The two of us entered the room, and a voice: [Please specify the dungeon and the floor] was heard.
Emily looked at me with a face as if saying: “What should I do now?”.
After stroking my chin and thinking about it for awhile, I reached out to Emily’s hand and grabbed hold of it. (TLN Note: Yes loli no touch! Or was that how the saying goes?)
[Please stay still.] (Ryouta)
[………Yes desu.] (Emily)
Emily stood still as she was told.
Feeling somewhat pleasant, she too grabbed hold of my hand.
I designated the location to Aurum’s first floor while holding hands with her.
I’ve been there before but Emily has not.
And we’re holding hands.
If it’s this then how would it work?
Immediately after I was teleported to Aurum.
[Where is this nanodesu?] (Emily)
Emily who joined hands with me was teleported together with me. It was a success.
[This is the first floor of Aurum. Apparently you could teleport to a place that you’ve never been before with the help of someone who has been to that place before.] (Ryouta)
[Indeed! This is getting even more amazing nodesu.] (Emily)
I touched the light and went back to the mansion. There wasn’t any problems returning either.
[Now to check whether there’s any demerit to this……I wonder if you can carry stuff over.] (Ryouta)
[Then that’s been checked nanodesu. Since I have brought back the carrot with me desu!] (Emily)
[Oh, now that you mention.] (Ryouta)
The function and rules of this room has slowly been unraveled.
And the next target has been decided.
[Let’s split up and bookmark every single dungeon of Shikuro for the time being. It would be convenient for us later on.] (Ryouta)
[Yes desu.] (Emily)
[I’ve heard the story.]
Eve appeared out of nowhere with a quiet voice.
The proud bunny ears with her costume was lovely.
And she had a grin on her face since just now.
[Bunny has conquered all 5 of Shikuro’s dungeon!] (Eve)
We have a veteran adventurer in our group!
