I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 182
Chapter 4-28. Dungeon ⑤ Is this really a B rank dungeon?
It had been an hour since we had dived into the fifth floor.
Alena seemed to be having a hard time mapping out the cave because of the many branches path, and she kept shuffling us around, going this way and that way.
There was nothing wrong with that, but we were still very tired after only an hour of diving in the fifth floor.
Reizen was now covered in yellow-green from the blood returning from the centipede-like monster he was slaughtering with his skillful 【 Piercing hand】 . (Previously [penetrating stab/hand])
I didn’t think it was necessary to go that far, but it seems Reizen still wants to go on a rampage.
I would wash him off later.
But thanks to Reizen’s efforts, we are able to move forward with a certain degree of ease.
For some reason, the number of enemies is abnormally large.
In addition to that, it seems these thing has poison, Alena and Uchikage, who do not have resistance skills, could be fatally wounded by a single hit.
With Reizen acting as a fortress, we were able to proceed safely, and even if Reizen missed, there would be no problem once I took care of it since I have the same resistance to poison like Reizen.
Uchikage may not have anything to do, but in this kind of dungeon exploration, there is a clear distinction between good and bad at it.
Therefore, I apologize to Uchikage, but this time I entrust him with escorting Alena.
” Damn, ……, that’s a lot of enemies!”
“You’re right, …… are you okay?”
Reizen was overrun with centipedes with the momentum as we speak.
He seemed to be managing now, but …… I was a little worried about whether he would be able to continue.
But this dungeon …… is really a dungeon designated as a B rank dungeon?
The enemies are obviously strong and their numbers are unusual.
I was a little worried that the B-rank adventurers in this world must be at this level, but looking at the two S-rank adventurers, I would have thought that this dungeon was close to the S-rank level.
Even though it is on the fifth floor …….
I don’t think an ordinary adventurer could stand up to it…….
“The first thing that comes to mind is that the level of the enemy is getting higher and higher.”
” Indeed,…… after we wipe out the enemies in this floor, let’s take a short break. Ouren-sama, how many enemies are there?”
“…… do you want to know?”
“……………. I’ll refrain from asking.”
These centipedes …… really don’t seem to be decreasing.
The number of enemies seems to be increasing, but considering the fact that they are not coming out of the branches path, they must be acting in herds.
I’m checking with my haze manipulation, but …… there is still a swarm of centipedes continuing to the back of the road.
So far as the physical strength of Reizen lasts, I would like him to handle it somehow,…… but this is going to be a slow process if we don’t beat the root of this.
This ammount of bug is bugging me who doesn’t really like bugging these bug, but it’s going to bugging me if we don’t get out of these bugs to the sixth floor.
Besides, it would not be allowed by Alena.
Therefore,……, for this one time, I am using my Haze skill to fill in the map on the fifth floor of the building.
Alena must have thought that I could not relax after seeing the current state.
For once, she was willing to accept it.
“Alena, the road there leads to the other side. But in the end, eventually, it’s going to lead us back here.”
“What does it look like?”
“Let’s see, it looks like this ……”
In the meantime, I’m going to fill in the map with this precaution this time.
I’m worried that I can’t see the end yet, but for the time being, I have no choice but to go with this.
However, Reizen will be exhausted if things continue as they are.
It would be better to take a short break at this point, even if in the middle of the trail.
“Reizen! Stretch out the barrier on both sides!”
“!! AYE! [Pneumatic Barrier – Sturdy] !
Following my signal, Reizen stretched the barrier in front of and behind me.
At the same moment Reizen streched out his barrier, he leapt backward and joined us.
“Aniki! Is there something in there?”
“Damn boy, you look filthy, let me wash you off.”
With the infinite water manipulation, I made some water for the time being and washed Reizen off.
To put it bluntly, I don’t want him coming up to me while dirty.
Who would want to approach a person covered in yellow-green liquid?
After washing for a while, Reizen became clean, so I released the water and tossed the dirty water to the side.
“Now you looking good.”
“Chough chough! Gasp. I thought …… I was going to die.”
Well, he won’t die from this.
But it seems this kind of attack kinda effective on Reizen.
Let’s remember this.
“So, what’s wrong?”
“You see, we’re going to lose a lot of time if we don’t do something about this. First, let’s take a short break and think of a plan.”
After saying this, Reizen sat down on the ground with a thump.
I knew he was tired, and I could see he was breathing a little hard.
I guess he was just getting tired when he settled down.
He wasn’t hurt, but he seemed to be tired normally.
“I didn’t think there would be this many enemies. ……”
” Indeed, it is. At any rate, Ouren-sama, do you know where this centipede originates from?”
“I will look for it.”
I close my eyes and deploy my haze manipulation.
In the meantime, there is no reaction at all on the path we have taken so far, so we don’t need to search behind us.
So I decide to concentrate my search on the front.
The centipede swarm has been going on for a while, but …… there is still no end in sight.
Apparently, this tunnel is very long.
Then I caught a glimpse of something that looked like a round ball.
For a moment I thought it was the eye of a centipede, but I barely noticed that it had not moved, so I decided to concentrate my search on that area.
Upon closer inspection, I found a centipede sprouting out of it …….
It was like a small centipede had emerged from the round ball, which had enlarged and was coming toward us.
“What the hell is this? ……”
” Is there something wrong?”
“In that direction …… It’s quite far, but there’s a round ball thingy which centipedes seem to sprout endlessly.”
“A round ball thingy ……?”
I checked a little more, and behind there was a hole to go down to the sixth level.
It seems that this dungeon wants us to fight these centipedes until the end.
At any rate, unless we break that crysta ball thingyl, we will have to keep fighting with these centipedes until we reach the goal.
I don’t want that to happen, so I launched my spear at the round ball.
If I was using my haze, I would be able to see the movement of the spear, so it would be possible to control the spear.
In order to reduce the number of enemies as much as possible, I let the centipede advance while slaughtering it using the threads of the reamed water spear.
Since it was moving through the air, it quickly arrived at the location of the round ball and had it destroyed immediately.
Then the piece was trampled by the larger centipede, and the centipede seemed to have stopped appearing.
“Is this enough ……?”
“You see, I’ve destroyed what seems to be the culprit for the time being. Now it’s time for the war of attrition.”
“It’s not over yet…?”
“We have no choice, do we? If we had left it as it was, we would have had to fight until we reached the end.”
The fact that it was Reizen that reacted the most was a bit amusing, but let’s just ignore that.
For now, I’m still in the process of eradicating them with my reamed water spear, so I’ m sure they’ ll come back to us if we just give them enough time.
“Reizen, can you still go on?”
“No worries, I’ll be there this time. The rest will be a battle of extermination! Reizen! Release the barrier!”
Reizen pushed the barrier towards the enemy once and then released it.
The centipedes are now bundled up in a part, and at that moment, I created about fifteen reamed water spears and thrust them at full speed into the horde of centipedes.
Reizen also followed suit and again started the work of extermination with his piercing hands.
From the rear, I used the water spear volley, and on the front, my reamed water spears and Reizeni’s piercing hands.
The number of enemies still does not seem to be decreasing, but thanks to the slaughter of the enemies when I let the reamed water spears forward, I feel that the speed of progress has increased compared to the previous time.
It may take some time, …… but for now, let’s keep up this pace ……
It is going mind boggling.
