I Used Magic
“…Isn’t there usually a limit to taming?”
And yet I somehow managed to tame 80 slimes.
This really was a game within a dream. The system was pretty horrible.
…Well, it didn’t really matter how many you tamed. These were slimes after all.
“Can you guys do anything? Like fighting?”
I said as I looked at the slimes.
And the slimes promptly…averted their eyes.
It looked like fighting wasn’t for them.
Well, none of them really looked like they had any intention of fighting ever since I saw them.
With that settled…a bell rang inside of my brain again.
I checked my status…
Skills: Taming, Light Magic, Shadow Magic, Fire Magic, Water Magic, Earth Magic, Thunder Magic, Wind Magic, Special Magic, Great Magic, Familiar Magic, Support Magic.
Familiar Magic and Support Magic had been added.
My MP was increasing when I wasn’t even doing anything.
What the hell was happening here?
I looked at a nearby slime…and the answer hit me.
The slime was reading a book.
“Wait…you guys can read books for me?”
The slimes began to jiggle in reply.
They were confirming my suspicion.
And somehow, I could tell that they were happy about it as well.
And like that, the slimes began to read the other books in the building.
These books continued to have titles that only a Chunibyo could have invented, like ‘Secret Book of Immortality’ and ‘Forbidden Arts of Snow and Ice’… But I was gaining skills.
And I didn’t even need to read.
Ultimately, my skills ended up looking like this:
Job: Tamer, Sage
Skills: Taming, Light Magic, Shadow Magic, Fire Magic, Water Magic, Earth Magic, Thunder Magic, Wind Magic, Special Magic, Great Magic, Familiar Magic, Support Magic, Altering Magic, Ultra Combat Arts.
My status had grown significantly and I had two new skills.
Also, for some reason, I had a new job. ‘Sage.’
“…Can I really use magic?”
I guess I could try using one that looked safe.
And since there were a lot of slimes here, how about the Familiar Magic… What kind of magic can it do?
As soon as I wondered this, the words ‘Shared Senses,’ ‘Monster Buff,’ ‘Attack Transfer,’ and ‘Protection’ entered my head.
I think…it was a list of skills I could use.
It was a rather thorough system for a dream.
No, it was because it was a dream. Creating this system in real life would probably be very expensive.
I thought about this as I selected ‘Shared Senses.’
And then…my head was filled with a different image to what I had been seeing.
Apparently, I was able to see what the slime was looking at.
It was a very strange sensation.
In any case, I was hungry.
And since there was no food here, I would have to relocate.
“Hey! All of you, follow me!”
I said, and then the scattered slimes all gathered together close to me.
But…they all looked so weak.
I had a feeling that they would all be massacred in a second if a strong monster showed up.
And I kind of felt bad for them…
As soon as I thought this, the words ‘Slime Combine,’ appeared in my head.
I said. And then all of the slimes came together at a single point…and transformed into one big slime.
I see. So that’s what it meant by ‘Combine.’
And if they could combine…?
I said. And the slimes came apart and returned to normal.
It didn’t count all of them, but it was probably the same as before they transformed.
I said, and the slimes combined once again.
Perhaps it was because of the size, but it did seem a little stronger now.
I would keep it in this form for a while.
I decided this and then left the building.
