1.12 I Met Magician Girl But She Is About To Die Though

The vibration function of my iPhone told me it’s time to wake up. Then again, it’s still three o’clock in the morning so the outside is still dark. I gently remove Lia’s arm that was entangled on my arm. I guess she was really exhausted. She didn’t show any sign to wake up even after I removed my arm.

I gently got off the bed without making any noise. I silently came out from the western-style room, closed the door, and take a deep breath.

[Huuu.... Haaa... Let’s go to the dungeon!] (Toru)

The dungeon is indeed a dangerous place but I couldn’t resist a temptation of leveling up and a charm called dungeon exploration.

Helmet with headlight, pickaxe, potato chips, salad with Pietro dressing iniside a tupperware, and cola. There are also other foods that were easy to carry like Chi-kama, convenience stores rice balls, cream puffs, etc. I put them all into a backpack. I also decide to bring gym clothes and the grip strength meter I won’t bring the bloomer because I don’t want to wear it as expected.

(TL : チーカマ = Chi-kama. This is some kind of fish stick with cheese inside, for more details  http://snacksofjapan.tumblr.com/post/118692944718/big-chi-kama-processed-cheese-fish-stick)

I carefully searching for a sound with my ears through the entrance door. I couldn’t hear any sound but.... a slime will hardly make any sound in the firts place. I carefully opened the door and there are no slime in the vicinity.

Actually I’m not worried about goblins anymore. I had asked Lia about monster at after-dinner chat yesterday. Basically, it seems that no monster would suddenly emerge from a wall or from nothingness inside the dungeon. Though monster with stealth skill is exception

I confirmed once again there are no monster at the other side of the entrance door. About a slime that attacked me before, it seem Lia didn’t realized there was a slime near her because it’s still small at that time and didn't attack.

Slime cub was about the size of an eraser and grow bigger over time and would attack humans. It seems the slime was halfway between child and adult when it hide under Lia’s shield. So it would be a simple reason that the little slime had turn to an adult slime after some time passed because slime is eat anything and grow quickly.

(TL : Do you remember when Lia said her provision is lost for some reason? it seems this slime that attacked Toru grew bigger after eat it)

[Well, it seems no slime is near the entrance door. I have only one thing left to do. Status Open!!] (Toru)

It came out! It came out! The numeral has came out as I imagine it in my mind. It still surprised me each time. I haven't taken notes about my status after leveling-up so I slowly wrote it down.

[ 【Defense Power】 is decreased. Is this because I'm wearing different clothes from yesterday? It seems blue jeans are stronger than a jersey] (Toru)

Slime doesn’t come out even after I finished taking notes.

[I’m glad that my level 1 really has increased to level 2. I also can see my strength status value has also gone up. Before looking for a slime, first....] (Toru)

I opened the potato chip bag and eat some.

[Seriously? It’s really just as Lia said before] (Toru)

I checked my status and found 【Agility】 status value has increased to 19 (+6 Up)

[It’s awesome, what’s going on with Japanese food over here? I wonder what would happen if I eat Nori or Pizza here] (Toru)

I ate salad with Pietro dressing and found 【Magical Power】is set to 30/45 (+15 Up) this time.

[Salad is for magical power huh. Lia said that she felt her physical strength increased after ate hamburger steak so it must be its effect. Let’s drink cola just in case] (Toru)

There seems to be no change so cola’s effect is for detoxification against paralysis poison as expected. It’s increased recovery rate from poison by 50%, perhaps. Though I couldn’t decide if it can be called powerful or not....

I eat Chi-kama, rice balls, and cream puffs accordingly. Firts Chikama is.... oh, it seems to be for 【Strenght】 status. Rice balls and cream puffs have no effects. Perhaps it’s overlapping with Chi-kama or maybe it’s for physical strength recovery.

All right, next is the top part of gym clothes from cosplay set. I take off a T-shirt under the jersey and wears  cosplay clothes instead. 【Defense Power】 decreased by one and then only increased by one as well. Both has the same defense value and it seems there is no special effect.

[No, it hasn’t been decided. There may be a special effect if I also wear the bottom part] (Toru)

Let’s not throw away the hope but it’s clear that the status is temporarily increased because of the food.

Looks good so far. The question is whether the written status really affected my body. I bring the item to make sure of it. Yes, it’s a grip strength meter.

[ 【Strenght】 is increased by 5 points so it should raise my grip strength around 20 kilos. Let’s check it out] (Toru)

The numerical value on a grip strength meter was shown 64 number.

[I did it!! Just as I have calculated!! The rise of status would also increased the realistic ability as expected!!] (Toru)

It’s decided, I’d like to raise my level more. I wonder if there is another slime in this closed room. Let’s search for it in every corner of the room. If I found a small slime, let’s put it into tupperware and fed it wit salad so it can grow bigger.  According to Lia's story they could split and multiply so it's possible that the slime I keep will increase in number later. However, no matter how much I was searched, there was no slime around.

[I couldn’t find it, as expected the slime from before is the only one....] (Toru)

There is no choice but to open that iron door huh. It looks like it's made from a thick metal and it doesn’t even have a peephole.

By the way, when this door opened, it’s said that only a little part of door is visible from the ceiling. If you press the stone button, it will come down and close.

When Lia found this room, she closed the door in order to reduce the probability of being attacked by monster even a little.

This kind of closed room is occasionally secured as a safe area inside a dungeon for adventurer to make camp. But most of it has traps planted, multiplied slimes, and there was also risk of food and water shortage if stayed too long inside.

Lia was collapsed because of the paralysis poison taking effects after she closed the door. But fortunately this closed room was connected to my apartmen and there was only one little slime inside this room.

[This means there are no more slime to raise my level unless I open this iron door....] (Toru)

What to do? Should I open it? The feeling of wanting to raise my level won.

[Since the iron door is going up and down, I will take a peek from the bottom while it opening and if there seems to be a powerful monster at the other side, I can just press the button again to close it at once. Then the door which is going to open will go down again and close] (Toru)

I dare to push the stone button because I could secure such a safety margin. I'm planning to take a peek into the bottom and see if there are any monsters.

The iron door is rising while make *gogogogogo* sound.

[Eh? what is this?] (Toru)

I pressed the button again. There was a stone wall immediately at the other side of iron door. The iron door closed as there was nothing at all.

[Wh-What is the meaning of this? Lia said she came from this door, and I don’t think it's a lie] (Toru)

At the time, I remember the similar situation. When I was going to leave the room, Lia said it’s a stone wall at the other side of window, even though the outside is Japan.... is this the same as that? Let’s examine once again just in case?

I am wavering, but I decided to try it again. Since the movement of the door is quite slow, currently only a gap above the knee is opened now. If this much, even if there is a monsters, no strong monster could enter through the gap surely.

The door rises little by little. I examine the stone wall behind the iron door in a hurry. The plan I have thought in advance disappeared into thin air because it was completely stone wall.

[Damn, it’s the same as the time with Lia. Perhaps it will seems like I was doing a pantomime from the other side] (Toru)

I lightly tapped the wall with my pickaxe. It was then, I heard something running from a little away. I thought that it was a monster so I tried to close the door. However, it talked to me in the same mysterious telepathy language as Lia.

[Move!]

When I thought who it was, a white feet come out from from the wall and kicked me away.

I confirming the surrounding while wondering about what’s was that. There is a woman with black pointed hat, black cloak, and something such as a wooden stick, came sliding. This is obviously a woman with a magician-looking. It seems her legs which had kicked me before.

The magician girl was staring at the direction of iron door which has been opened one knee height. It seems her condition is no good. Or rather, it’s terrible. A red liquid is flowing from the edge of her mouth. It’s blood.

[Close the door quickly!! A great centiped is coming!!]

Great centipede? I have realized at last. There is no doubt! She was talking about a monster! I quickly got up and pressed the button.

The iron door is going down, will it make in time? It closing down little by little. Thinking about our desperate situation, I getting iritated with the slowness of its movement. Still, the gap is only one knee height. While I thought that we were gonna be fine, it showed its nose.

It was flat, but its body is as thick as telephone pole. Even though it's only one meter in length that passed through the iron door, its body is still longer behind the door.

I thought that I could never win against such a thing. The iron door caught the body of the great centipede. It sandwiched between the door and stone floor but it still wriggling in good condition. The power of the iron door that trying to close seems to be strong, the centipede is struggling in agony.

[We did it! though it’s just a fluke!] (Toru)

When I said so, the magician girl cried out.

[This guy won’t die with this much, move away! Inferno!!]

The great centipede’s body that was being crushed by irong door is wrapped in hellfire and become charred in an instant.

Th-This is a magic, wonderful....

While the centipede clearly getting weakened, it raised disgusting squeal. I take the pickaxe and hit its head.

[Take this! Take this!] (Toru)

It's too dangerous if the centipede recovered. I beat the centipede until it doesn't move anymore. Suddenly the power filled my body. I had completely forgotten about this thing but it seems I have meet the requirement to level up after defeated a great centipede. In other words this monster centipede is dead.

I’m sure about it because my level went up. I turn around, the magician girl who shot the magic earlier was throwing up blood. It’s not the time to check my status. The magician girl collapse on the spot.

[Are you all right?] (Toru)

I call out the magician girl while supporting his back.

[The great centipede poison got me....]

[Poison? Is this paralysis poison?] (Toru)

[The great centiped poison is not paralysis poison.... it’s poison that kills. But if you possessed high level detoxification magic, I could be saved]

Of course I don’t have such a thing. She was smiling when I stared at her face.

[The poison got me during battle before this and I have also lost all the antidotes....]

The magician girl seems to be in pain and doesn’t have the power to speak anymore. With closed eyes, she was groaning with sweat that was flowing from her forehead. It’s a quick-effect poison. I have to do something at once.

[That’s righ! Cola!] (Toru)

I take out a cola from my backpack in hurry. It worked on paralysis poison so it may also work against the poison from the great centipede.

[Drink this quickly!] (Toru)

There is no response even when I call out. I opened the plastic bottle and poured a cola into magician girl’s mouth but it was just flowed out as is.

[It’s no use. She doesn't have the strength to drink it, then....] (Toru)

I put the cola inside my mouth and make her drink from it.

    2. What brand names? I didn't see any... (Cola hasn't been a brand name for decades, if that's what you mean.)

      Delete
    3. In some areas, cola means a dark fizzy drink like Coca-Cola. No brand name is used. So you're good

      Delete
    4. That's right. As long as he did not say Coca-cola specifically that cola he used can be any or none of those well known brands such as Pepsi, Coca-Cola, and Diet Coke.
