338-306 To return to japan (3)


 It was Haruka who immediately responded to Toya's voice.

"Yuki! The Isolation Field!
I'm not sure what to say. I'm not sure what to do.

 Although half-asleep, Yuki's spell was properly activated, and a barrier enveloped Haruka's tent.

 In the meantime, the sound of something hitting the ground could be heard inside the tent.

Let's go!
"Yes, sir!

 Haruka and the others grabbed their weapons and ran out of the tent, only to see Toya looking into the distance with a stern look on her face.

 However, after a while, Toya let out a breath and relaxed her body.

He's okay. No reaction.
Yeah, ......, or what?
Here, look at that. And while you're at it, check the other side of that wall.

 He pointed to a flying gar that was bouncing around on the ground.

 Because of its location, it must have hit the barrier Yuki had put up earlier and fallen to the ground.

Oh! There's a bunch of them stuck here too!

 Mitya, who was behind the wall, said with a voice that was a mixture of surprise and joy.

"Wow, it's true: ....... There's over 20 of them. ......

 In contrast, Yuki, who also went to take a look, sounds as if she is saying, "Ugh!

This would have been quite dangerous if Toya hadn't noticed. ......

It's also worth noting that Haruka's reaction was quick. How did you manage to react so quickly?

Yes, I was sleeping a bit lightly. ....... And Yuki used her magic right away, too.

I see. I guess that's why I was able to protect my expensive tent.

 He didn't need to ask why he hadn't slept well, so he didn't say anything more and turned his attention to Yuki.

The earthen wall you built also helped a lot. As you can see.
Yeah. ....... It was supposed to be a windbreak, but it had an unexpected effect.

 The tent was protected by a spur-of-the-moment quarantine zone, but Toya's location was outside that zone.

 Even if Toya had been able to see them coming, it would have been difficult for her to deal with more than 20 flying gars in the dim light.

I don't think he died, but he would have been injured, if it weren't for this.

I didn't expect an attack at night. ....... No, it wouldn't be strange if it was a normal demon.

It's pretty vicious, isn't it? It's pretty vicious, though. It's been there in the daytime, so it thinks it's safe in the passages and ledges.

Yeah. I'm not saying I wasn't careless, but I was tired and resting, and I was taken by surprise. ......

 If you don't go up and down the walls, you think you won't be attacked from the sky, but at night they come flying.

 In addition, compared to the Arrowhead Eagle, which makes some flapping noises, the Flying Gar, which does not flap at all, is almost silent except for a slight wind noise.

 It is extremely difficult to spot them at night.

...... In this case, would it be a good idea to put up a good light?
If it's bright, it'll glow!

 When she jumped out of the tent, Haruka quickly activated the magic of the "light".
 The light is reflected by the fish body of the flying gar that Mitya picked up.

 It's not very noticeable, but as bluefish are called "shiny things", it will definitely shine and help you find them.

"Yes. Let's float the "light" in the direction of the waterfall, a little farther away. Fortunately, the direction it flies in seems to be fixed.

It would be a disaster if it came from the opposite direction, wouldn't it?

 I'm not sure what to make of that.

Stop it. It's really going to happen.

I don't care how many times I have to say it. It would still make sense if it flew from the top of the waterfall, but the other side is the sky, right? Unless you were suddenly born and fell into the air...

 Yuki laughed and denied Toya's words, but then fell silent and thought about it.

It's a dungeon, right?

It's not that unreasonable. It's not that unreasonable. If you say so, you'll have to live in fear of Dahl's Bear suddenly appearing above you.

We'd be crushed to death if that happened.

 A typical Dahl's Bear weighs over seven tons.

 Even if Toya and the others are getting better, there's no way they can support that kind of weight if it suddenly falls on them.

"Well, if it comes from the opposite direction, we'll be safe against the wall. Toya, this is a good time. I'll take over the watch. We've got a big day tomorrow. Get some sleep.

Yeah? Okay.

Yeah, I got it. You and Yuki.

And me.

Me, go to sleep. I'll leave it to you.

 Mitya raises her hand, and Mary lets it fall as she pushes her back toward the tent.

But ......
Mitya, you'll need to keep watch tomorrow. So get some sleep.
I understand. ......

 I'm sure you'll be able to do it.

I'm sure you're right. I'm not sure what to do. I'm not sure what to do. You used it again just now, didn't you?

I'm sorry. Well then, Haruka and Mary, take care of the rest.

 After watching Yuki and her friends go back into the tent, Haruka and her friends sat down next to the fire and added firewood to it.

    The next day.

 The next day.
 Haruka and her friends had a peaceful morning.

The next day, Haruka and his friends had a peaceful morning.
"That's good, Haruka-san. It was safe.

 Mary smiled at the slightly disgruntled Haruka, but then choked on her words when she heard Haruka's next words.

But isn't Mary a little disappointed? But isn't Mary a little disappointed that there are no more fish?
"Ugh! I'm sure the flying gars were delicious, but...

 In the event that you have any questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site.

"...... Would you like some of that for breakfast?
I'm sorry. I'm not sure what to do. Would you like me to bake it?

 Mary nodded happily to Haruka, who responded with an involuntary gush.
 Then Haruka and the others started to cook the fish.
 Perhaps lured by the smell, the first to show up was Toya.
 Mitya followed soon after, and Yuki came out a few minutes later.
 Yuki came out a few minutes later, yawning as if she hadn't slept long enough.

"Good morning.
"Good morning. Yuki, how's your magic?
"Hmm, something?

 Yuki replied, folding her arms and twisting her neck as if to measure her magic power.

"Well, that's good. You have to work hard, Yuki.

Oh, so I'm supposed to be the one doing all the work?

"After what happened last night. After what happened last night, I don't feel safe without the Isolation Field protecting my back.

I know. That's what I was thinking.

 Yuki's shoulders slumped a little, but she nodded her head in agreement.

 If you want to go down from the top, you can use a rope to go down at once, but if you want to climb the wall, it will naturally take many times longer.

 Especially this time, they had experienced the collapse of the rock wall in addition to the attack last night.
 We had to be very careful about where we chose.
 The first attacker under such circumstances would be none other than Yuki.
 Once Yuki is up there, she can use the rope ladder to climb up quickly.

Yuki! Hurry up, hurry up!
Your food is ready.
Okay, I'm coming.

 Laughing at Mitya and the others who seemed to be waiting impatiently, Yuki sat down by the fire.

 After breakfast, Yuki started to attack upwards with caution, but fortunately the Flying Gars and Arrowhead Eagles did not attack him.

 Fortunately, the Flying Gar and Arrowhead Eagle did not attack.

 He carefully secured a foothold and reached the top ledge, at which point Yuki's magic power was already nearly depleted.

 It was difficult to go on without taking a rest.

 Half a day's rest would allow her to recover her magic, but there was no way she could operate day and night, and considering safety, she could only climb two levels in a day.

 Halka and the others would have to make two more encampments before they could escape the second layer.

 During this time, the night attacks continued, but Haruka, who had plenty of magic power, dealt with them by building an earthen wall. The flying gars that had flown in during the night were simply collected by Mitya the next morning, saying, "Fish!

 On the third day, Haruka and her friends finally reached the stairs leading to the 20th level.

"You managed to get back here.

"Yeah, sort of. The rock spider was back, which was a bit of a pain in the ass.

 In the past year, Haruka and the others have also learned the [Spotting enemy] skill, and Toya's [Spotting enemy] has risen to level 3, but it is still lower than Nao's.

 Although he was able to find the rock spider that was hiding, he was often surprised to find it just before he did.

Maybe we should work out a little, too.
Yuki learned by copying, didn't she? And now?
"...... level two.
It's not high, but it's not slacking either.

 In the event that you've got a lot of time, you'll be able to take a look at a few of the best ways to make sure you're getting the most out of your time.

 You can't say that you've been lazy because you've been able to raise your level in a situation where you can safely leave it to Nao and Toya.

You say that, but what about Haruka?

Me? I'm level one.

You're lower than me!

You know you don't have a copy, right? First of all, if you train her too much, Nao won't be able to play. Consider it, consider it.

"Mmm. ......

 I'm sure you're not the only one.

 In fact, compared to Toya, who has animal senses, and Yuki, who can copy, it is difficult for Haruka to acquire the skill of searching for enemies.

 It's difficult, but as of now, Natsuki also has 【Searching Enemies Lv.1】, so it's a skill that can be obtained to a certain extent if you're a serious adventurer.

I've been wondering about this for a while now, but I'm not sure what a level is.
"Well, .......

 In the event that you've got a lot of time, you'll be able to take a look at the web site and find out more about it.

I'm not sure if you've heard of it, but I'm sure you've heard of it.

 This is the first time I've ever seen such a thing.

I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, but I think it's a good idea.

Well, that's what it means.

 In fact, it's not as simple as that, and it has the advantage of allowing you to grasp all of your abilities, but Haruka nodded that she was generally correct.

 But for Mitya and the others, that alone was enough to surprise them.

It's very convenient!
"Wow, if we pray hard enough, can we get blessings too?

 If we pray hard enough, will we receive a blessing?" Yuki averted her gaze and muddled her words.

"Oh, I don't know about that. Maybe it depends on God's will?

Yes, that's right. If you have impure feelings, you won't get any blessings, will you? I'll pray sincerely!

 I'll try to pray sincerely!" Yuki thought that it didn't matter if he was sincere or not, but there was no way she could say that, so she just nodded vaguely.

But there was no way he could say that, so he just nodded vaguely and said, "Well, that's not the point right now. We need to get ready and go save Nao and the others, okay?

"Oh, yes, of course. I'm sorry, I shouldn't have bothered with that.

 I'm sorry, I shouldn't have worried about that.

No, I think it's natural to be curious. No, I think it's natural for you to be curious, so feel free to ask me if you have any questions in the future, okay?

"Yes, I understand.

 Mary, who tended to be reserved because of her position, and Mitya, who seemed to be less reserved but still read the air.

 It's a good thing that the two of them have started to speak out their doubts honestly, Haruka and the others nodded to each other.

So, let's go back to layer 20.
"Yeah, I guess so.

 With Toya in the lead, the five of them began to ascend the stairs.

 Haruka, who is walking at the end of the stairs, turns around and looks down the cliff when her foot is on the stairs.

 What lies there is a deep valley, closed off by fog, the bottom of which cannot even be seen.

"Nao, Natsuki, I'll be back as soon as I can. ......

 Haruka muttered, and ran up the stairs, shaking off her reluctance.
