I Acquired Information
Sometime after all that.
I was riding the Proud Wolf and dashing through the forest.
‘It’s surprisingly far…’
‘Oh, this distance is nothing!’
From the town, the volcanic mountain had appeared to be very close by.
I thought the Proud Wolf would have taken us there within half an hour.
However, I was clearly mistaken.
An hour had already elapsed, and the volcanic mountain was only now starting to look like it was close by.
‘Do any of you detect magic from the Lesser Fire Dragons?’
‘What kind of monsters are they?’
As we were getting close, it seemed like a good time for them to start showing themselves…but I guess not.
‘I guess we’ll have to go into the mountain…’
I didn’t like that idea at all.
Volcanic mountains seemed like they would be the most dangerous place in any world.
Not only was there lava, but there could be toxic gases that would cause you to lose consciousness as it slowly killed you. And then, of course, it could just erupt at any moment.
Though, there wouldn’t be any problem if it was dormant… But the mountain in front of us had smoke rising from the top. It looked active to me.
I was quite sure that we would find lava at the top.
‘Can we really go inside of that mountain?’
I doubted they would be able to tell me anything, but I asked the slimes anyway.
And then–they replied in a most surprising way.
‘I’ll go ask them!’
A few slimes had splintered off before jumping away from the Proud Wolf.
I frantically told the Proud Wolf to stop. I didn’t want the slimes to be left behind.
‘Proud Wolf, stop.’
And so the Proud Wolf stopped right there.
And then I used ‘Shared Senses’ to follow the slimes that had gone off.
And–a slightly red slime appeared in their vision.
Actually…was that really a slime?
As I wondered this, a window popped up in front of me.
‘Monster – You have Tamed a Red Slime.’
