Chapter 27: Adventuring with Reina
This is my first time exploring the dungeon with Reina.
We set our goal to B14.
This is because golem will not appear before B14.
There is also close to no risk if we fought with monster other than the golems.
I chose a lower difficulty since this is the first time we form a party.
Recently, I better more familiar with the activities of an adventurer and could rapidly cut down the monsters with my sword.
[Ohhh, as expected of master! Your movement is so crisp!]
[If we are talking about that, your movement is even more crisp]
As it is inappropriate to wear her maid uniform in the dungeon, Reina is wearing cloth that is easy to move in such as short pants.
In other words, her clothes gave her absolutely no defense.
But in return, Reina became extremely agile.
[Haa! Hoo! Yoo!]
She can avoid most of the attack by low level monster.
Then, she threw a small knife at the monster.
Exchanging blow with a Matango (T.L Some mushroom like monster), Reina than thrust her knife into the monster, kicking it to make it loses its balance before giving the finishing blow.
[Ah ~, the movement of my waist became slow, this..]
Reina scratched the back of her head while looking embarrassed.
However, she looked extremely strong in my eye. Is she even stronger in the past?
[Just now, I could not kill the Matango with one kill. If it was me in the past, I could easily kill that level of monster]
[Well, l can’t understand that level of obsession]
As for me, I learnt the way bandit fights.
It is extremely dangerous if they get hit but the rate of evading is high in return.
This fighting style is similar to gambling.
On the other hand, my fighting style is similar to a traditional warrior.
In the way, we proceed further into the dungeon smoothly.
While that’s the case, we only follow the standard route so we didn’t face any difficulties.
[However, I don’t feel any motivation if we explore the dungeon without any clear goal]
Of course, I collected the magic stone with the intention of buying something for Misha.
Reina’s dog ear started twitching.
[Speaking of which, have you heard the rumour of some expensive accessories appearing on B13?]
[Not at all. Previously, we didn’t have the intention to explore every floor in detail. We only enter the dungeon for the sake of raising level…]
[Since that’s the case, let’s set the goal as finding the accessory. Perhaps the one that hid them as bandit like myself. There are some bandits who have the hobbies of hiding their stolen goods in the dungeon]
There are many fellows with weird hobbies in this world. Well, I could not understand their mindset. (T.L How about your obsession with cats?)
Then, we arrived at B12.
We proceed with me leading the way so I wanted to quickly clear this floor and reach B13. However, I found the differences between our occupation.
[Master, let’s search this place carefully!]
[But, there is nothing on this floor?]
However, Reina is looking at a slightly different place.
[I felt something strange around this area]
Then, she slowly knocks on the wall.
Suddenly, it seemed that she pressed on a switch and the wall that I initially thought was normal, moved, and a small room appears.
There is a stair that leads to lower floor.
[Such a thing, how did you do it?]
[Master, this is my animal instinct]
Misha would occasionally show similar actions.
[Those treasures would already be found if we search B13 normally]
Now that you mention about it, that’s definitely the case.
I had seen empty treasure box of various size on B13.
[Alright, the treasure we are looking for should be…]
[Hold on, master. Please don’t open this yet]
Reina stopped me by thrusting her hand.
[There are rumors that accessories could be found on this floor but those treasure chest is still here. Since that’s the case, there should be someone that found this place but could not open the chest. It seemed that this type of chest requires a long time to open even if you are serious]
[The bandit way of living sounds tough…]
Reina took out wire-like item and tried picking the lock.
Around 3 minutes later.
[Finally, its open]
We slowly open the chest.
Rather than an accessory, the item found in the chest is a silver-white crown.
[It seemed this will match that fellow black hair]
[Anego will surely be happy!]
However, soon after, Reina started yawning.
Her yawn is even higher than Misha and it gave off a feeling of a dog.
[My bad, master. I am too excited when opening the chest…]
[This is different from fighting and requires a lot of concentration. Well then, let’s rest for a short while. Let’s sleep for around 30 minutes. Since this is a hidden room, monster will not spawn here]
[You are right, well then, let me sleep for a short while…]
Reina lean her head against the wall and immediately fall asleep.
This is probably the habit she picked up while she was a bandit.
I should also take a short nap.
I attempted to sit beside Reina and sleep.
However, I fail to sleep.
This is because Reina’s head is now leaning on my shoulder.
[This, I must not cheat]
This is how it should be.
While listening to her snoring cutely, I stayed motionless for 30 minutes.
However, Reina showed a bitter expression when she woke after 30 minutes.
[Master, this is being rude to Anego! Please wake me up!]
[Are you over-reacting…?]
[That’s not the case. If, I fall in love with master, things will become complicated…]
I could see Reina face turning red after rejecting me.
Eh, could it be, I did something unnecessary…?
[It, it doesn’t matter! Let’s go back since we obtained what we want!]
