Chapter 127 – A body that can’t live without you
TLN Note: Shiro-san apologizes for his laziness….. orz
IMPORTANT NOTE: Shiro-san has forgotten to put colour coding because he was too blur!
Morning, all of us were aligned while eating our breakfast together.
The nobleman’s mansion had a great dining hall in it, and in it was a long table placed there.
I was forced to sit down at the husband’s seat by everyone and the rest sat down based on democracy.
It was an extremely long rectangular table and the short sided of the rectangle.
Then, I was told to sit at the short sided area it was reserved exclusively for me. It was sort of embarrassing.
And everyone else was seating at the long side of the table, 2 person on each side.
It really felt like those scenes in stories where nobles were seating at such place whilst having their meals.
I suggested that we should replace the long table with a round table but everyone stopped me from doing so, guess I was outnumbered by them as their forcibly pushed not to.
Can’t be helped I suppose.
After having my breakfast I went out, and went to the Teleportation Room where I was teleported to Nihonium basement 6th floor.
Using the Absolute Rock to turned into Invisible Mode, top it off with my Repetition, I went around the floor decimating Poison Zombies.
Today I defeated all of them using the Repetition Skill.
Defeating them, then picking up the Intelligence Seed, and increased my stats.
I followed my usual status farming to get the most out of it.
Not just farming, but teleporting too.
Farming as much as I could, and after my Intelligence was increased from E to D, I went back to the place where I was teleported from and touched the light spot to return back to the room.
Afterwards, I went to check the time.
It wasn’t just Yen and Piro that was similar, but this world’s time was similar to my former world’s time system. Well the only exception was that there wasn’t any concept to divide the time by A.M and P.M, it would be unified from 0 to 23.
I teleported from 8am, and came back at around 10am.
Normally I would come back around 12pm which is already afternoon after increasing my status.
Having the Teleportation Gate and Repetition made it the ultimate efficiency, halfing my usual routine was a great discovery for me.
During the afternoon, instead of earning money, I went to the Teleportation Room.
I have confirmed that Eve was able to access all of the floors of Shikuro.
It was an extremely convenient room, but there was one last thing that I wanted to confirm.
While thinking so, I went inside the room and set my destination.
Aurum, the room of Aurum.
[Well then, I wonder if this works.] (Ryouta)
After a short time passed, the scenery around me changed.
The place that I was teleported to was indeed the room of Aurum.
Yeap, I was able to get here.
I guess it wasn’t limited to just the normal floors of dungeon, but I was able to teleport to God’s room.
A large empty space with a girl standing in front looking bored as usual.
Her height was shorter than Emily at a height of 140cm. Wearing her Goth Loli costume, and her head was growing a demon horns and the back with bat like wings.
It was Aurum Dungeon’s God, and her name was as plain as it gets, Aurum.
[I came to play with ya Aurum.] (Ryouta)
[Eh? Ryo, Ryouta? How come you’re here? Just how the heck did you get here?] (Aurum)
[Aah, so you know.] (Ryouta)
The puzzled Aurum, from her words it seemed that I came in a non-canonical way.
[Of course I do. This entire dungeon is me, so whatever monster was defeated or how much Gold was dropped, I would know all of it.] (Aurum)
[So you even knew when I defeated the Rare Monster and arrived here then.] (Ryouta)
But why? Was written all over her face.
[Anyways, don’t you wanna head out? I thought of bringing you to someplace different.] (Ryouta)
Aurum was really gullible.
Instead of continuing to question how I came here, the fact that bringing her out was more important made her toss aside those questions immediately.
I pointed my Revolver on the excited girl and fired, turning her into a Gold Bar.
After that, I carried that heavy Gold Bar and returned to the Teleportation Room, carrying her all the way to the basement floor before returning her back into a rogue monster.
[Where’s this? This is the first time coming here….but there’s nothing at all.] (Aurum)
Aurum’s face had disappointment written on it.
Guess if she wanted a place that is empty, the place that she is living is exactly that.
[It’s my home. Reason why there’s nothing is exactly what the purpose of this room is for.] (Ryouta)
[Heh, so it’s Ryouta’s home.] (Aurum)
[If you head up then it would be different.] (Ryouta)
After saying so I went up first. Aurum tagged behind me went out with me.
The moment she came out of the basement, her body and mind was in awe.
Though we just moved here for a few days, the entire mansion was completely dyed in the colour of Emily.
It was warm, bright, and a gentle mansion.
A home that has Emily in it will definitely become like that, and someone that was hit by such gentleness for the first time would obviously be in awe.
Seemed like Aurum wasn’t an exception.
[This place is amazing, This place is amazing, This home is indeed amazing.] (Aurum)
The same sentence was being repeated thrice with rhythm.
The words seemed to have no content, as if her brain was shut down and her vocabulary went 404 Not Found because of much warmth and kindness.
[I’m glad that you like it. Makes me happy that I brought you over.] (Ryouta)
[Un! Thanks! Aah…..what should I do.] (Aurum)
[Should do what?] (Ryouta)
[Bringing me to such an amazing place, my body might not be able to live without Ryouta anymore.] (Aurum)
[You’re exaggerating.] (Ryouta) (TLN: Somebody please call the police on this guy)
Though I don’t feel particularly bad. Seeing her happy made me happy.
[If I don’t repay you with something…..Ryouta! Please accept this!] After Aurum thought for a moment, she took out a Gold Bar and handed it over to me.
I then hurriedly received the 1 kilogram Gold Bar. This amount of Gold might be worth around 3 Million Piros.
[This is my feelings!] (Aurum)
[This is normally amazing.] (Ryouta)
[This is the limit when leaving the dungeon, so after we return I’ll give you 100X the amount.] (Aurum)
[I won’t receive that much okay!] (Ryouta)
Thinking of 100 Kilograms worth of Gold Bar was frightening. Receiving that much would be troublesome.
Bringing Aurum along, we head towards the city.
Though the appearance of Gothic Loli with Demonic Horns and wings weren’t common, but there were other adventurers that were way more unusual, so it was alright not hiding it.
Rather it was more problematic for me.
[Ryouta, it’s about time for the festival, so I would want to order a huge sum of Ryouta Pumpkin if possible.]
[Because I adore Ryouta so much that I moved from Benzene to Shikuro! Please take care of me from now on! And please sign this for me!]
[Hey Ryouta, A long Magic Storm will come three days in a row for the upcoming week, I wonder if you would enter the dungeon with me.]
Many people were coming to talk to me when we arrived the city.
Since before I was talking to them while walking, but the people increased even more after Arsenic’s case.
I seemed to have become a famous person, though I was happy but at the same time I have this complicated feeling.
After coping with the people along the way, I finally went back to Aurum who was hanging around the city.
[How was it Aurum, the city of Shikuro.] (Ryouta)
[It’s amazing, there’re lots of things that I’ve never seen before.] (Aurum)
[Is that so.] (Ryouta)
[Yeap! Hey, what’s ths?] (Aurum)
[It’s a Bamboo-copter.] (Ryouta)
The bamboo-copter was on sale in a general store. I see, so they have this in this world too.
I paid the shopkeeper, rub the shaft and spun the bamboo-copter letting it fly.
The bamboo-copter slowly flew straight up and rotated slowly while descending.
[It’s that kind of toy.] (Ryouta)
[Awesome! This is the first time seeing such things.] (Aurum)
[So it’s your first time.] (Ryouta)
[Yeah! There’s a lot of first times for me! This is really an amazing city. Aah!] (Aurum)
[What’s wrong?] (Ryouta)
[Over there, there’s a couple on the other side of the man. I’ve seen them before because the two of them came to my dungeon previously. Aah, same goes with that old man too.] (Aurum)
Aurum then pointed the adventurers one after another.
[Aah, this is a Magic Cart. Heeh, it’s lined up neatly.] (Aurum)
We stopped right in front of the Magic Cart shop. Apparently she knew about Magic Carts as well.
Well her knowledge is completely biased, as she only knew what comes to her dungeon.
Looking at that figure, and thinking of the Teleportation Room in the mansion.
I thought of bringing Aurum out more frequently.
[Hey Ryouta.] (Aurum)
[I feel that from some time ago, someone has been staring at me?] (Aurum)
Aurum whispered to me who had a troublesome looked, thus I looked around.
Now that she mentioned, most people in the city were looking at Aurum.
Regardless of age, sex, occupation or status.
Most of them were humans—–no 99% of humans were looking at Aurum.
Even after observing them for awhile, I was still not sure.
It’s not as though they wanted to talk to her, everyone was just staring at Aurum.
They all had sparkling eyes attached. Really…Why?
[Hey hey Ryouta, what’s that!?] (Aurum)
[Hmm? Aah that’s a marble.] (Ryouta)
[Marbles? There’s beautiful.] (Aurum) (TLN: You’re way more beautiful..kek)
[I’ll buy it for you.] (Ryouta)
I took out some money from my pocket and bought the marbles for Aurum who had glittering eyes.
Then a Gold Bar fell from my pocket.
It was the 1 kilo Gold that I received from Aurum earlier.
[ [ [ ——-! ] ] ]
As if some sort of sound was heard, a sort of response.
The fallen Gold Bar, and the people in the city that was staring at Aurum awhile ago was now fixated at the Gold Bar.
Their eyes were exactly the same as Aurum’s eyes right now.
…….Aaah, so that’s how it was.
[I got it Aurum, I knew the reason of everyone’s gazes.] (Ryouta)
[Really? Why is that so?] (Aurum)
[Because everyone likes Aurum.] (Ryouta)
[Anyone would like you. Conversely, I think there would be no one that dislikes Aurum.] (Ryouta)
Not from what I know.
After telling Aurum, she tilted her small head while crossing her arms looking confused.
I picked up the Gold Bar, and bought the marbles with small change.
As I handed it to Aurum, a young man stopped in front of her.
The young man was staring at Aurum straight in the eyes, with a daring face.
[When I first laid my eyes on you I fell in love with you! Please go out with me.]
She was suddenly being confessed.
[Eeeeeeeeeh? Wh, what is this. What’s with this Ryouta.] (Aurum)
[It’s a confession, it’s normal.] (Ryouta)
[A confession?] (Aurum)
Guess she doesn’t understand this either.
Apart from Aurum’s puzzled look, the young man said some more.
[Please become mine!]
[So it’s that.] (Aurum)
Seems like Aurum came back to her sense, guess she understood?
[I’m sorry. My body can’t live without Ryouta anymore, so I can’t be yours.] (Aurum)
[You’re gonna tell him that now!? What’s more isn’t that sentence really bad!] (Ryouta)
[Daaaaaaaaammmmniiiiit, You’ll remember thiiiiiiiiisssss!]
The rejected youth ran away half crying.
[He cried……] (Aurum)
[Well of course he would, with the way you said.] (Ryouta)
[Is that so? Hmmm, humans are difficult beings. But that in itself is sort of interesting too!] (Aurum)
Experiencing that for the first time, Aurum had a fresh look on her face.
Well, what should I show her next.
Anything should be a first time for her other than a dungeon, so why not show her some ordinary things——
Aurum suddenly cried out loud.
When I turned around, I saw Aurum being kidnapped.
The man was wearing a mask with a hat was carrying away Aurum and was running away. It looked like a bank robber.
When I shouted, I glanced at the man who was careless for a moment.
Desire—-His eyes were covered with lust for money.
Seemed like he knew about the Gold Bar in my pocket. And Aurum was kidnapped because, well she’s Aurum.
Woops, now’s not the time to analyse, gotta go and help.
I stepped and kicked the ground, dashing towards him.
With the Speed of SS, I caught up to the man in a flash and went in front.
[Hand over Aurum.] (Ryouta)
I pulled out my right hand and pierced his body right into his belly, while he released his grip I hold onto Aurum and carried her.
The man floated in the air for a moment with his body bent in a “<” shape, then fell and spread on the ground.
[You got some skills brother.]
[You’ve shown me some good shit.]
[I want to be helped like that too!]
When I regained aurum from that person, I was praised by everyone even when it’s daytime.
Moreover, how was Aurum.
I laid her down and looked straight into her face.
[You alright Aurum?] (Ryouta)
[What should I do…….My body might not survive unless I’m with you.] (Aurum)
[As I said, enough of that. Are you alright.] (Ryouta)
[It’s not something you can just brush it off! Uuu….I, I’m alright okay.] (Aurum)
[I see, then it’s fine.] (Ryouta)
[Uuuuu…..] (Aurum) (TLN: Baka Ryouta. Just go be dense elsewhere)
Aurum was moaning for some time. I don’t know why but since her body seemed to be safe, I was glad.
But what should I do now.
Aurum had gathered a crowd in the meantime, and some of gazes had greed.
I better pull off for today.
[Let’s go home today Aurum. I’ll bring you again next time.] (Ryouta)
[We’re already going back?] (Aurum)
I nodded. Well it was sort of awkward for us to return so early, but I will make up for it again after we can get out of these gazes.
[……Okay, I understand. If it’s like that then lemme do this.] (Aurum)
[This is….Aaah.] (Ryouta)
Aurum hopped onto me, she jumped on my back with her small body, and I was on a piggyback posture.
Aurum’s body was soft and light even though she’s made out of Gold.
[This is cause it’ll be tough if someone kidnapped me again, okay!] (Aurum)
[That’s true.] (Ryouta)
It that was the case it can’t be helped. Thus, I carried her back while protecting her.
Aurum hold onto me tightly until we got back to the mansion, and her body heat lingered on my back.
