A few hours later.
‘Sorry…it seems like they got dragged in after all…’
The dragon muttered as its claws moved away the rubble in order to find the slimes that had been buried.
It seemed like it had finished its rampage for now.
‘We’re finally out!’
‘It was so tight!’
The slimes shouted as they hopped on top of the boulders.
At first, they had been able to come out by themselves every time they were covered…but they would keep getting buried again no matter how many times they got out. And so the slimes had just given up and stayed buried.
While they were perfectly safe down there…it was apparently not very comfortable.
‘I’m sorry. It may not be much, but I will help them escape as part of my apology.’
‘Okay, thank you.’
Due to the dragon’s attacks, the layout of the tunnels had changed greatly.
It was hard to even tell where the original tunnels were.
But… There was still a great big hole that led to the open sky.
It would be easy to reunite with the slimes if the dragon carried them.
