After descending down the stairs and into the room, a girl was there.
One look and she looked like a young girl around the age of 14~15 years old, which is similar to Alice.
Her hair was so long that it spread around the floor; her clothes had a [traditional]——- Closely resembling clothes of the 10th century of the Heian period.
That was the impression that she gave.
[Are you perhaps, Plumbum?] (Ryouta)
[A human….. Are you here to trick me again?] (Plumbum)
This girl—— Is for sure the spirit Plumbum based on the location, however her stare of me was that of hostility.
But, at least I know one thing.
She did not deliberately remove the monsters to spite me.
But she did it because she wants to reject humans in general.
[Trick? Did humans did something to you in the past?] (Ryouta)
[Are you feigning ignorance?] (Plumbum)
She raised her hands.
And at that moment, a strong force pushed me.
I used my arms to guard against it—–However.
My entire body was struck with pain.
When I look closely, a fish type monster that exists in Plumbum appeared out of nowhere and started attacking me.
[Wait a minute! I just want to talk—–] (Ryouta)
[Leave! I have no need to speak with a human!] (Plumbum)
Plumbum who was enraged, raised her hands up again.
It’s the second wave of her attack, and in a second, I saw what was surrounding me.
Countless monsters were surrounding me.
Hurriedly, I stomped the ground and jumped behind me, then taking out my revolvers, I loaded it with Growth and Normal Bullets and started firing.
The monsters who were hit, dropped and died.
[You’ve done it…..] (Plumbum)
There’s no point in doing this.
I switched to my special bullets and fired.
What I used was the Restraint Bullets, which I fired towards Plumbum.
Plumbum who couldn’t move further filled her rage as she stared at me angrily.
She really have a strong sense of rejection towards me.
Normally I would ask what’s the matter, but with that kind of eyes….
[What happened? I’ll listen. Maybe I can help with the troubles that you have.] (Ryouta)
[Such a ridiculous human, no matter how good of a listener you are, eventually, you will betray me like all the other humans.] (Plumbum)
[…… You’ve been betrayed?] (Ryouta)
[That’s right!] (Plumbum)
She shouted as her eyes were in flames.
[Then, let me at least listen to your story.] (Ryouta)
[…….. Very well. If you really want to hear it, I shall grant you your wish of listening to the crimes of what you humans did.] (Plumbum)
Still staring at me with anger, she eventually started talking.
[Once, there came a man. A strong and brave man.] (Plumbum)
I guess she’s describing a veteran adventurer.
[That was the first time I came into contact with a human. That man talked about what humans are, and what they do. He taught me things that I never knew about. To return the favour, I gave him powers that can only be used in Plumbum, only for him.] (Plumbum)
So he was given the name.
[The man said that he wanted to go back first.] (Plumbum)
The story….. Suddenly took a turn?
[He said that he shall come back. He promised that he will. Believing in his words, I waited for his return——- However!] (Plumbum)
The enraged Plumbum raised her voice as she continued.
[That man did not return at all. He used the powers that I’ve granted to him, but never once did he——- Yes, even after he died.] (Plumbum)
[……. So he recently passed away.] (Ryouta)
[Yes. Thus, he has returned the power back to me. So human, do you understand now? Humans will easily break promises, betray if necessary.] (Plumbum)
[That, you’re wrong.] (Ryouta)
[What is wrong about it!] (Plumbum)
[It is not that he did not want to return, but it’s that he couldn’t. It is incredibly difficult to get here.] (Ryouta)
[That is nonsense! That man said that he [Came here normally].] (Plumbum)
[He is just not aware about the luck he——] (Ryouta)
[Then he shouldn’t have said it!] (Plumbum)
Plumbum became even more fumed.
I wasn’t lying to her, but that made it worse.
[Even if that person were to do that, I wouldn’t do such a thing. To absolutely say——] (Ryouta)
[I would not be lied to for a second time, human!] (Plumbum)
Plumbum raised her hands once more.
I readied myself. But instead of a monster flying towards me, it was the Turtle that appeared in front of her.
Since I’ve defeated that once, it was easy——– And it didn’t work.
Looking closer at it, the shell had a different colour. So a different monster.
However, the ability is similar.
The only difference is that it’s faster than the previous Turtle by about 1 second in duplicating.
I fired my revolvers to eventually break its shell once more.
I didn’t stop—— but then suddenly.
A stairs appeared in front of me.
The staircase returning to the top appeared from the turtle.
[Disappear at once, human!] (Plumbum)
Since Repetition didn’t work, and it was incredibly tough, it takes around 5 times the speed to defeat it.
Biting my teeth, I knew what had to be done, as I ran up the stairs that Plumbum made.
When I went up, I was outside the dungeon.
Phew…… Let’s think up of measures for the time being.
Thinking about it, I turned my back away from the dungeon—– But.
I stopped and pondered.
I turned around and stared at the dungeon.
That is….. I can’t.
Plumbum has been betrayed by humans.
If I went away right now, she’ll think that [See, I knew it.].
If I don’t head down, I won’t meet her.
I have to get her to understand.
Hence I went back into the dungeon.
I went straight down to the last floor.
With the only 2 Goats Milk left, and one being used, I used the last milk to hatch the monster.
Once it hatched, I used Repetition and head down the stairs.
Going down, I used Repetition again to defeat the Turtle.
Once again, I’m back at Plumbum’s house.
[Wha- What are you trying to do?] (Plumbum)
[Please listen to me.] (Ryouta)
[You’re so annoying!] (Plumbum)
Plumbum once again brought out the Turtle.
And the stairs appeared again.
[Leave at once!] (Plumbum)
[I’ll never leave.] (Ryouta)
I firmly said, but then I went silent.
Plumbum was shocked, and looked at me confused.
With the increase with the Turtles, the room is being crushed by them.
But, Absolute Rock.
Activating my Invincible Mode, I was able to endure it.
I could hear squishing sound coming from my body.
It was my body handling the weight of the turtles.
Blood spewed out of my body.
[W-Why would you go that far…..] (Plumbum)
[I can’t leave someone like you alone.] (Ryouta)
[So-someone like me…..?] (Plumbum)
[Being locked in this place, not being able to meet with people, and being hurt by people when you meet them.] (Ryouta)
Plumbum looked at me straight in the eyes.
[I just can’t leave you when you’re under such circumstances.] (Ryouta)
[That’s why I wanted to do something. This is nothing compared to—–] (Ryouta)
My speech was cut short.
My consciousness is fading.
In the meantime, the turtles continued to grow, and I can feel the pressure increasing by the second.
I bit my tongue to stop myself from losing consciousness.
[Please, believe in meeeee…..] (Ryouta)
After I said that, I couldn’t feel my feet.
This might be the end—– was what I thought.
[…… Really?] (Plumbum)
Plumbum said in a weak voice.
[Can I really, believe in you?] (Plumbum)
[…… Yeah.] (Ryouta)
[Are you going to visit me again?] (Plumbum)
[I will. There are some days which I wouldn’t be here, But I’ll ask my friends to drop by.] (Ryouta)
[Yeah, if you like, I can bring you out as well.] (Ryouta)
[That is….. Not like I want……] (Plumbum)
Plumbum was mumbling.
She looked like Alice, but just a little bit different.
She doesn’t have any interest in the outside world.
She just wants someone to visit her.
That is all she ever wished for.
[…… I, I got it.] (Plumbum)
[I shall…. Put my trust in you.] (Plumbum)
[….. Believe in me.] (Ryouta)
I confidently said it.
She looked like she was about to cry a storm.
But her face, she was smiling back at me with a kind, and warm smile.
Thank you so much to all my patron supporters who have been helping me since the beginning, and to those who are helping me right now as well.
