 When I followed him into the door, it was a familiar, empty space, one before reaching the spirit.


 However, perhaps because Sakura had already entered the space first, a monster has already appeared in the space.


 One goblin dressed in ostentatious mage’s dressing gowns and holding a staff in the shape of a demon’s head.


“Oji-san! All we have to do is take this down?” (Sakura)

“Yeah, up until now, I’ve met the spirits after defeating the monster here.” (Ryouta)

“Alright – take that one!” (Sakura)


 Sakura opens her sketchbook and activates Genesis.


 A metallic, clenched-fist right arm shot out of the sketchbook and flew towards the goblin.


 It hit the goblin and was repelled.


“What was that?” (Ryouta)

“Rocket punch. One of many romances.” (Sakura)

“Oh, er. Right.” (Ryouta)

“What? Are you anti about it by any chance, Oji-san? I don’t approve of strings as rocket punches.” (Sakura)

“No, it’s not that. But, okay.” (Ryouta)


 I pulled out my revolver too and fired a Normal Bullet first, as usual.

 Hand-held Normal Bullet, first shot to see how it goes.


 The bullet was repelled, just like the rocket punch.


“No effect.” (Ryouta)

“The way the bullet travelled through seemed fine, so maybe it’s a question of power.” (Sakura)

“Then–” (Ryouta)


 Let’s switch to the +10 revolver and aim with a growth bullet.

 A maximum power bullet hits the goblin, but was also repelled.


“Maybe it’s…. tough.” (Sakura)

“Try using …… the golden right foot or something.” (Ryouta)

“Okay.” (Sakura)


 Sakura responds, immediately turning the pages of her sketchbook and summoning her golden right foot.


 The golden right foot materialised near the goblin and kicked the goblin away.


 The goblin hits the wall and crumples down.

 It quickly tries to stand up, but is wobbly.


“There seems to be some damage being done.” (Ryouta)

“Yeah. That’s strange, this attack should be weaker.” (Sakura)

“…… Is there anything in the golden series that shoots or throws?” (Ryouta)

“Yes, there is, Golden Balls, or Kin—” (Sakura)

“You don’t have to abbreviate it, just shoot it.” (Ryouta)

“Aite~” (Sakura)


 Three summons, this time a golden left arm emerged from the sketchbook, swung and threw a golden ball.


 The golden ball flew straight through – or so I thought – but it blurred in the middle and took a messy trajectory.


“What was that.” (Ryouta)

“Non-rotating chute”. (Sakura)

“Shouldn’t it be a knuckleball because it’s an arm!” (Ryouta)


 As I retorted, the golden ball hit the goblin and was then repelled.


“I see, maybe it repels long-ranged attacks.” (Ryouta)

“Is that so?” (Sakura)

“Yeah, the golden right foot from earlier must have done more damage than this one. This one hurts like being kicked in the bare guts, but that one does more damage than a little finger smashing into the corner of a wardrobe.” (Ryouta)

“I don’t see the difference!” (Sakura)

“Then, well, I guess I’ll just have to get close and knock him down.” (Ryouta)

“Ah.” (Sakura)


 I put my revolver away, roll up my arms and walk closer.


 Then the goblin chanted something and made a magic circle at my feet —- and it fired.


“Oji-san!” (Sakura)


 Sakura’s voice stopped me in my tracks.

 The fired magic gathered at our feet and formed a red circle.


 It’s a narrow circle that can only hold about one person, upright and immobile.


“Isn’t this kinda yabe?” (Sakura)

“…… Let’s try it out.” (Ryouta)


 I took a deep breath.

 Assume a range of possibilities so that I can deal with whatever happens, and then step just outside the red circle.


 Instantly, my whole body was on fire.


“Oji-san!?” (Sakura)

“I’m fine.” (Ryouta)


 I move my body violently and blow out the flames.

 There’s burned and damaged here and there.

 I pulled out my revolver and fired a series of recovery bullet at himself.


“Shouldn’t this …… go out? …… Oh, it’s gone.” (Sakura)

“Indeed.” (Ryouta)

“Let’s do it while we can. Something tells me it won’t be good if we take our time.” (Sakura)

“Right – mmm.” (Ryouta)


 We tried to attack and take the initiative.

 Then magic was used again and this time a blue circle appeared at his feet.


“…… get out of there Sakura!” (Ryouta)

“—–Yes!” (Sakura)


 Sakura heard my cries and ran away from the circle as I did.

 Nothing happened when I got out of the circle, but the blue circle chased me.


“I see, so that means we can’t stop over here.” (Sakura)

“Maybe.” (Sakura)


 Fleeing from the blue circle, the goblin chanted more and made more blue circles.


 Sakura and I desperately ran away from the circle.

 Multiple circles successfully restricted and guided our movements.

 Combined with the ineffectiveness of long-range attacks, it was very difficult to get close to the goblins and there was no time to fight back.


Should I just use Speed Up bullets and rush in, ready to do some damage? —and that’s when I thought.


“No, not that way!” (Sakura)


 Sakura shouted as hard as she could at me.


“Ah.” (Sakura)


 Sakura huffs.

 Chased by the blue circle, I stepped into the waiting red circle myself, as if I had been forced into a cul-de-sac.


 I was in the red, unable to move.


 Blue catches up and surrounds me.


 Red circles that must not come out, blue circles that must come out.


 The dichotomy of going to hell and returning to hell.


 They didn’t even give me time to hesitate – or to do so.


 Immediately afterwards, I, flamed out.


“Oji-san!?!” (Sakura)

“I’m fine.” (Ryouta)


 Inhale and shoot recovery bullets at myself.

 More flames came once more, then the red and blue circles disappeared in turn.


 Sakura ran up to me.


“Oji-san you aite?” (Sakura)

“Yeah, I’m fine.” (Ryouta)

“Why is it only Oji-san……” (Sakura)

“That just happened twice.” (Ryouta)

“What?” (Sakura)

“Maybe one for Sakura and one for me. Both came to me.” (Ryouta)

“Why—-ah.” (Sakura)


 Sakura understood a little later than I, who ate it straight away.


“Level ……1” (Sakura)

“Probably yes.” (Ryouta)


 Characteristics of this dungeon, attacks targeting weak people.

 Here, too, the damage seems to be a system where the weak bear the brunt.


“If that’s how it is then this’ll be easy. I’ll hold on, you take him down in the meantime.” (Ryouta)

“…… We can do better than that.” (Sakura)

“Better?” (Ryouta)

“Yeap.” (Sakura)


 With a mischievous wink, Sakura summoned something from her sketchbook.


 The …… monster was summoned.

 It’s a very familiar monster.


“That’s not good!” (Ryouta)

“Why not? When Japanese people think of slime, they think of this… form, right?” (Sakura)

“Maybe so, but it’s bad!” (Ryouta)


 I further retorted.

 Sakura summoned a slime.

 It was a slime, but …… it was a pretty slime, with a droplet-like silhouette.


“Any more than that…… yeah!” (Ryouta)


 Sakura, a red circle formed at her feet. She went outside the circle without hesitation and the slime evaporated in flames.


“A great success.” (Sakura)

“Are you …… vulnerable at level 1?” (Ryouta)

“Weakest♪” (Sakura)


 Sakura responds happily, as if it were the truth.


 Then she summons the slime again.


 This time I step out of the red circle, again the slime is blown away —- and re-summoned.


 A slime that is set to be level 1 like me and far weaker than me.


 Sakura summoned it, and Sakura and I slowly fleshed out the goblin —- and took it down with a single punch.


 And this time —– the door is opened.
