Day 63: Mithril
Holy Era 6102, Month of the Water Serpent, 15th day.
Mmmm, I slept very well.
When I looked around me, I saw that the Kobolds were curled up and sleeping.
So the feast had ended.
As for little Rai…he was still asleep as well.
He was still gripping my hand, and so I pulled it away.
How long is he going to act so childish? Really.
But Ms. Noa chuckled with amusement as she saw this.
We’ve become good friends now? No, that’s not true at all! This was just a coincidence!!
Hmph…she would not believe me… Well, that’s fine.
Ah, right. What was this feast for?
I asked, and she told me that it was to celebrate the hunting of the Golem.
…The Golem? Do you mean to say that you defeated that thing!?
Ms. Noa nodded proudly as I looked at her with shock… There really were no limits to this person.
Still, why were the Kobolds celebrating that?
When I asked the reason, the mystery as to why we didn’t meet any of them on the 6th floor was solved.
Apparently, ever since the Golem positioned itself there, the Kobols were unable to go any lower than the 5th floor.
And though they had made many attempts to take it down themselves, they were always driven back, much to their dismay.
It was because of this situation that they were so grateful, and had held a feast to celebrate…
…Golems were even more troublesome than I thought.
We should find out who made it and report it to the guild…
As I thought of such things, I nodded and muttered as Ms. Noa continued to talk.
Huh…that Golem is made of mithril, eh?
So that’s why it was so tough… Hey, wait a minute!!
Mithril!? The whole thing!?
I asked in surprise, and Ms. Noa nodded.
Why didn’t you say that earlier! Now the quest is complete!
Ah, but how should we carry it out…
Ms. Noa…could you put the whole thing in storage…?
And then she beat her chest confidently… The space magic of elves truly is amazing.
They could store something of that size… It really is unfair.
After that, the gathering of the Golem finished relatively smoothly.
And so the only thing left to do was to return to the surface.
Four floors left to go… I’ll do my best!!
Is what I thought, but…we are currently at the entrance to the abandoned mines.
The Kobolds had guided us, and we reached it in no time.
Hmm. It really was a good idea to be friends with them.
Thanks to that, we will be able to return ahead of schedule.
I’m looking forward to taking a long bath once we reach town.
Huh? Is little Rai sulking? Ah, he looked away.
…It’s strange, he had been so honest and cute the past few days.
While we were preparing the carriage, we encountered some people from the Knights Order.
Apparently, they were going to enter the dungeon.
…Really. Who were they searching for?
Ah, I should ignore them. Of course, if they ask for information, I will give it to them…
Now, let’s go back to the town!!
Hmph. How long are you going to be acting like that, Rai?
This mission is almost complete…
…However, his mood did not improve that day… And I had thought that we had become friends.
Today’s earnings and expenses:
Balance: 47 silver, 71 bronze
Unconverted: Various ore, mana crystal(small) x1(broken)
(･_･?)… I wonder what is wrong with little Rai.
