10 Years After – 47

PAGE 1

For a while, we stood there silently. Even Gerberga was quiet as I held him.

 

–Creakkkkkkk.

 

“That is a strange sound.”

“It is.”

 

Gerberga began to shake violently again.

 

“I better check to see where it’s coming from.”

“Yes.”

I tried to listen without making any noises.

This was the kind of work that I wished that Grulf would do.

However, he was sleeping so soundly, so it couldn’t be helped.

 

—ohh….it hurtsss…the pain….helppp…

 

“There was a voice.”

“Cl-clu-clu-clu-ckk.”

 

Gerberga was practically vibrating now.

He was really scared. I guess he was strong against vampires but weak to ghosts.

 

I held onto him tighter.

 

“Could it be an undead?”

“Perhaps.”

 

As an illusionist, Luchila was calm, as most Sorcerers would be in this situation.

Ghosts were a good trick for illusionists to use.

It was usually Luchila who used such images to scare other people.

And so he was not afraid.

 

“It’s over here.”

“Yes.”

 

I continued to hold Gerberga as Luchila and I went over in the direction that the voice was coming from.

 

“But there is nothing here…but this was where the voice was coming from.”

“There may be a hidden door.”

 

Just as I said this, Luchila’s eyes shone.

I understood the excitement that a hidden door aroused.

 

I was a seasoned Adventurer. And I was also the scout in our old party.

And finding hidden doors was easy for me.

 

It only took a little searching before I found it.

 

“Mister Locke, that’s amazing. I couldn’t see it at all.”

“This isn’t the typical kind of hidden door you might find in mansions. It’s a medium dungeon class.”

“Maybe there will be a treasure.”

 

Luchila was as excited as ever. He had completely forgotten about the ghost now.

I checked for traps before carefully opening the door.

There were stairs that led to the underground.

 

“Clu-clu-ck-cluck.”

Gerberga was still frightened, and he pressed against me and stretched his neck over my shoulder.

I held Gerberga and slowly climbed down the stairs.

 

It seemed like there was a room at the bottom.

There were no windows, and it was completely dark. Even with my night eyes, I could not see anything.

 

“It is very dark down here. Can I create some light?”

“Do it.”

 

Luchila used the Magic Light spell.

In an instant, the room was filled with light.

 

And there was a human figure right in front of us.

Its back was turned towards us, and it was floating in the air upside-down.

The long, shaggy hair was hanging below it.

 

“Ccccccluckk-cccluckkk!”

Geberga shuddered.

 

“It-it is a ghost! Does it have some kind of grudge!”

Even Luchila was shocked by this.

Upon hearing Luchila’s voice, a woman’s face rotated to look at us.
