“U, N ……”
Rubbing my head uncomfortably, I sat up in my bed.
In her room in the house, which has become her family’s home, Emily is there.
“Good morning ……why are you in my room?” (Ryouta)
“What do you want for breakfast desu?” (Emily)
“Breakfast ……? Yeah, I’ll eat it?” (Ryouta)
I reply, but Emily just stares at me and doesn’t say anything.
“I get it desu. I’ll be waiting for you in the cafeteria desu.” (Emily)
Emily left the room, leaving me with a vague feeling that she wanted to say something.
I wondered …… what was going on, but my head was too heavy to think straight.
“Let’s just get up anyway.” (Ryouta)
I knew I was going to fall asleep again, so I said it out loud to myself and got out of bed.
After getting changed, I get out of my room.
“…… hmm?” (Ryouta)
As soon as I got to the hallway, I felt a little strange.
I didn’t know what it was,……, but my head was still too heavy to understand.
I gave up and went to the dining room, only to find Emily there.
“Good morning. Where’s everyone?” (Ryouta)
“They’ve all gone out nodesu.” (Emily)
“Gone out?” (Ryouta)
“Yoda-san is a sleepyhead nanodesu.” (Emily)
“…… ah.” (Ryouta)
So that’s what happened.
I looked at the wall, there was a wall clock created by the power of Vanadium.
The new mansion is not a building, but a dungeon, hence there are windows, but they are not linked to the real scenery.
Therefore, in order to be able to tell the time to a certain extent, Vanadium and I worked together to create a clock that reads what is going on outside.
The idea behind the clock was to make it easy to understand.
I looked at the wall clock and saw that I’d overslept by at least an hour more than normal.
“I can’t believe I overslept this much……” (Ryouta)
Emily said, bringing me a dish that she had probably reheated.
Then she looks at me with a worried look.
“You shouldn’t push yourself too hard nanodesu. Your health comes first nanodesu.” (Emily)
“Yeah, I know. It’s just for now. I’ll stop when I’ve saved enough money for the ring. It’s only for a little while, so don’t worry too much.” (Ryouta)
“If you say so desu……” (Emily)
Having said that, Emily looks worried.
Right after I started living with her, I made a promise to her that I would take it easy on her.
It pains me to think of it, but I tell myself and her that it’s a temporary thing, not a permanent thing.
Emily smiled sadly and nodded at me.
I strongly felt that if this happens, I have to achieve my goal as soon as possible.
Plumbum dungeon, the room of the spirits.
Since I overslept, I was late coming here for my morning routine.
The ring is important, but so is my promise to Plumbum.
I came here as usual, before I went to the dungeon.
“Good morning. How are you today?” (Ryouta)
“Not too bad.” (Plumbum)
“Oh, well. I’m glad to hear you’re well.” (Ryouta)
Prumbum didn’t answer, but stared at me.
“What’s the matter?” (Ryouta)
“Is something bothering you?” (Plumbum)
“Your strength, your stamina, all your abilities are reduced. What’s wrong?” (Plumbum)
“Can you tell that my abilities have been reduced ……?” (Ryouta)
“Of course not. I know you, I can see it in your face. You’re much weaker than usual.” (Plumbum)
She can see it from me.
It’s a nice line, but a bit embarrassing when you say it.
“I’m fine about that, I’m just a bit sleep deprived.” (Ryouta)
“Lack of sleep? What’s making you not sleep?” (Plumbum)
I told her about the ring, and how I’d been trying to earn enough money to get one for all my friends, because it was so good.
“That’s why I’m a bit sleep deprived.” (Ryouta)
“I see. That’s very you.” (Plumbum)
“Is that so?” (Ryouta)
“In that case, …… wait a bit.” (Plumbum)
With that, Plumbum stood up quickly.
She reached out her supple hand, and a blinding light flooded her fingertips.
The next moment, my senses changed.
What had been an ordinary room suddenly became a strange space where something seemed to cling to my body.
“Is this the same as the …… dungeon?” (Ryouta)
I stared at my hands, clenching and unclenching my fists, and circling my arms.
The feeling I confirmed was the same as that in the dungeon in Plumbum.
It’s like being in water, a space of resistance but low gravity.
It’s a characteristic of the dungeon, though, so it’s not surprising that Plumbum, as a spirit, can turn this space into it.
“Why all of a sudden?” (Ryouta)
“You can rest here. I’ve made the space more effective for recovery.” (Plumbum)
“What? You can do that?” (Ryouta)
“Of course. If I want to, I can even make the dungeon a space where your health is constantly decreasing.” (Plumbum)
“A terrain effect, …….” (Ryouta)
“Now, you should get some rest.” (Plumbum)
Plumbum withdrew her hand from mine, with or without my permission.
I lost my balance and was forced to lie down on the spot.
It felt as if I was in the water, and I could float in the air in this lying position.
This was—— comfortable.
All beds and duvets are hard and rubbing and make you feel slightly uncomfortable, but in this space I felt as if my whole body was wrapped in something warm and comforting.
In an instant, I fell asleep.
“…… Good morning.” (Ryouta)
“Isn’t it too fast?” (Plumbum)
When I opened my eyes, Plumbum raised her eyebrows slightly.
“Not really, a fifteen minute nap is more than enough.” (Ryouta)
The sensations I’d learned from my days as a company employee came back to me.
My body clock told me that I had slept exactly fifteen minutes.
When I decide to take a nap and then go to bed, I can wake up in exactly 15 minutes.
–It’s the same as when I was working.
“I’m recovering really well ……. Is this what Plumbum did for me?” (Ryouta)
“Yes, it’s the effect of this space.” (Plumbum)
“Wow, I’m almost back to full strength, my head feels so much clearer.” (Ryouta)
For a 15-minute nap, I’ve recovered as much as if I’d slept for eight hours straight.
“Well, it seems to have helped. You can take a break with me while we reach the ring.” (Plumbum)
“Thank you, that would be great.” (Ryouta)
The space is fully recovered after a 15-minute nap.
In order not to cause Emily any more worry, I decided to indulge with Plumbum.
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.
