1.6 The Matter You Couldn't Easily Determined Your Future

I sat down inside the bathroom with the frosted glass door behind me now. What am I doing, you ask?

[Toru-sama are you there?] (Lia)

[I’m here~] (Toru)

After the rampaging shower incident, she said that she was scared if I’m not around. So, here I am....

There are basically no dangerous things in modern Japanese living articles, but science and technology can be a dangerous thing for people of medieval level perhaps.

I decided to stay nearby until she satisfied with the bath. She should take a bath slowly to warm up her cold body with water.

[How is the temperature of water?] (Toru)

[It’s great. The soap for hair also generated a lot of bubbles. Artifacts made by Toru-sama are the best after I know how to use it] (Lia)

[I see, good for you!] (Toru)

While Lia is inside the bath, we are having a conversation like this through the frosted glass. It’s unlikely that I can go to get her shield at this rate. I asked her about something that suddenly came to my mind.

[What kind of monster did Lia received paralysis poison from?] (Toru)

[It’s a goblin. I was knocked down after getting shoot by a blowgun, I guess] (Lia)

[I see, a goblin huh] (Toru)

I thought goblins weren't strong opponent but it was different from my game knowledge perhaps.

[The goblin in this dungeon is special] (Lia)

[Special?] (Toru)

[It may not be a big deal for someone with Great Wiseman-sama caliber, but this abandoned capital of the underground empire, to be precise this Yomi dungeon is a dangerous place for any adventurer, or so I heard] (Lia)

I see. The dungeon that connected to my apartment is called Yomi dungeon. The other information, this dungeon in the abandoned underground empire is a very dangerous place.

[Even I never thought an ordinary goblin would attack me with a blowgun and paralysis poison. The monster in this dungeon is special, they are quick, smart, and....] (Lia)

[Is this different with the other dungeon?] (Toru)

[I never entered any other dungeons. It’s completely different from the outside monsters at least] (Lia)

I see. This dungeon is dangerous on a completely different level. That real estate agent.... it’s really a defective apartment.

[Even though I have a quite high agility status value for a knight, I couldn’t catch up at all with the speed of a slime that running away inside this dungeon. The experience value is good as a rumored, but....] (Lia)

[Wh-What did you say!!!???] (Toru)

[Huh? Did I just say something strange?] (Lia)

There was something that caught my interest from the conversation.

Slime that ran quickly to the extent she couldn’t catch up at all? Or about a monster that give a lot exp point like a certain game? Those are one thing, but I'm more curious with a different matter!

[You see, because I'm a Great Wiseman, I usually used special method to see my status.... but how a normal person like you check their status?] (Toru)

If there is numerical status for each person, we could understand our aptitude or talent that we probably possessed. This is an intriguing matter for a Japanese person like me. We can avoid useless effort with this, but of course there is a possibility it also can make you frustrated.

[Eh? Eeeh? Is there any other way to check your status?] (Lia)

[There is! There is! So please tell me how was Lia doing it!] (Toru)

[Ye-Yes. Just think about it in your heart and you will see the numbers, right? I mean, It was a providence made by God who created this world....] (Lia)

Bingooooo!! What a wonderful providence!!

[Eh? I can’t see my status! Why!?] (Lia)

When I overjoyed, Lia cried out because her status didn't come out. Maybe I know the reason, but let's tell Lia something a little convenient for me.

[There is magic inside my residential area that prevented people to check their status. You can see it again outside this place, I guess] (Toru)

In a fact, I think Japan’s rule was applied inside this apartment. But outside this place probably.....

[That’s good then] (Lia)

The sound of the shower ceased. I think she is going to enter the bathtub now.

[Ah, that’s right. There was closed iron door behind the place where I found you collapsed, did any monster passed through there?] (Toru)

I think there is no monster inside this dungeon’s big room because the door was closed.

[Pl-Please excuse me. I escaped after I got hit by the paralysis poison but I closed the door before I collapsed, I'm sure no monster was chasing me at that time. There should be a switch on the wall over there] (Lia)

So there is no monster.

[I left your shield in the dungeon. I will go to get it now] (Toru)

[Hmm? Please don’t mind it! I’m very grateful you have saved my life] (Lia)

[I’ts fine! there is no monster, right?] (Toru)

[Eh, yeah.... probably!] (Lia)

[Well then, please take your time inside the bath] (Toru)

I wore a helmet with a headlight that was put on the dinning table. I also took the pickaxe from my belt and held it in my hand. I put paper and a pen inside my pocket. Even I know my status, dungeon is still dangerous place to step in so I will take some notes.

I carefully make sure there was no noise from the other side of door and opened it slowly. I peeked out the door to confirm no monster around a couple times

[Yossha!! It seems good!] (Toru)

There is just a little tension remaining to step into the dungeon this time. I feel more nervous thinking the possibility I will be able to see my status. Is this possible? Or is this impossible? If I can see my status.... I will know whether there is a bright future or a dark future ahead of me instead.

[Fwuuuuh!] (Toru)

Before confirming my status, I couldn’t help but to take a deep breath first.

  3. Previous theme was BETTER(more lighter)!!

  4. "[How is the temperature of a shower?] (Wazu)"

    Why is there Wazu? When did he become THAT powerful to cross between novels? :D

  5. Thank u always for ur great work...

  6. God, if there's anything I can't stand in a character, it's a liar who is too scared to spit it out. I mean how hard can it be to simply tell the girl she is in another world? That all the stuff she sees in his room are just regular old objects and not artifacts? How hard is it to tell your harem that you were reincarnated as a baby after being brutally mailed by truck San? Why are isekai protege always such wimps at revealing info that really doesn't change much?

    1. Seems like being mailed by truck could be pretty brutal, too, esp if they didn't cut air holes in the box.
