I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 185
Chapter 4-31. Dungeon ⑧ Mirror Opponents
“Daaaang!!! This is boring-!!!!”
“Certainly… This scenery is tiring to see.”
“Why is it only one way … so boring …”
We are now at the fifteenth floor.
From the tenth floor, there are no more floor bosses, but instead many small fry enemies.
However, they don’t pose much of a threat to us, and we’ve been able to progress easily up to this point.
The traps are also disappearing around here, and since there is only one road, I can spot the enemy without me having to use my haze manipulation.
If the route was split, there would be more places to search and Alena would have less time to spend, but since there is no place to connect or even a split road, we are only doing monotonous work here.
Therefore, even Alena seems to be getting tired of it.
The enemy is weak and their numbers are small.
Reizen, who is standing in the front line, can easily just hit them and it’s over.
I didn’t think this would last until this floor. ……
“The difficulty level has suddenly dropped. ……”
“You could say that. But we must not let our guard down,……”
“Yeah……… Uoooooooooo! Come out with stronger enemies!”
“There’s no split road ahead!”
“Shut up and stop yelling! This is a cave, it’s going to echo!”
I know that the stress is reaching maximum, but please pull yourself together a little bit.
I’m desperate for some sunlight, too.
I mean, if you yell, the enemy will be aware of it!
It’s a little late for that, though!
It has been a week …… since we dived into this dungeon …….
It’s surprisingly painful to just keep walking along a long, monotonous straight path.
This is probably something I never even experienced in my previous life, thus it’s exhausting.
It’s like taking a bus from the countryside to Tokyo.
I’m not sure about what I’m saying, but it’s probably true.
“…… hmmm? Guys. I saw something.”
“What?! A treasure chest?!”
“A forked road!?”
No, I can still understand Reizen’s excitemant about treasure box.
But what the hell is Alena’s forked road?
Is her head okay?
So we looked at what Uchikage had found, but what we found was a floating mirror.
And it seemed to be a dead end, there seemed to be no other place to go, and the place was quite spacious.
There was no magic circle, and the way back, which I had feared, was completely gone. ……
“I’m assuming this is the lowest level ……?”
“Perhaps it is.”
“Is there a way back home too? Like magic circle or something? This dungeon…. seriously?”
“Aniki! In this kind of dungeon, if you defeat the last enemy or solve a riddle, sometimes a magic circle will appear that is the way back!”
“Is it that convenient ……?”
“At any rate, let’s take a look at that mirror. It might be very valuable!”
Indeed, that mirror is very interesting.
It is not attached to the wall, nor is it leaning against it, but it is floating.
It is obviously something that should be called a magic item ……, but what is it?
No, it is still a mirror, but why is there a mirror here?
Is this another item that was installed by the guild staff?
If so, there is a possibility that we can use it to return to the surface.
We stood in front of the mirror.
All of us were reflected in the mirror, and we were staring back at or reflection.
It looks no different from an ordinary mirror, and there doesn’t seem to be anything special about it.
“So, what’s this?”
“…. I can feel something like magic from it, but it doesn’t seem to have the same kind of effect like …… magic circle.”
“You can tell?”
“No, it’s floating, so it must have some magic power.”
“…… Aah, …… that kind of magic huh ……”
What do you mean you don’t know too?
No, well, we can only use our skills, not our magic. ……
If you are a person who can use magic, you may be able to sense the magic power well.
I found that this mirror was very finely carved and decorated when I looked at it up close.
However, the decoration was not necessarily attractive.
It is true that the decorations look as if they were created by a skilled craftsman over a period of several months, but they are so disfiguring that it is almost unpleasant just to look at them.
It was made of gold, but there seemed to be a dark, black darkness hidden behind it.
“What a big mirror-“
“This is just a …. floating mirror? Isn’t it?”
I did hear a sound as if the mirror was cracked, but I could not see any damage to the mirror.
However, there wasn’t any sound after that.
Then, after a moment, Alena tilted her head.
“Hmmm? I heard something.”
“Oh, I also heard something once. It sounded like a crack in the glass.”
“Mm? I don’t hear it. Oh, I hear it now.”
Weird …… it only happened once.
But everyone else said they heard it at different times, so it probably sounded the same way about four times.
Huh, is this ……?
After questioning the sound, something unnatural was happening.
our reflection in the mirror was not moving.
The other three seemed to have noticed this as well, and question marks appeared in our heads.
I wondered if this was the mirror’s ability, but I realized a few seconds later that it was not.
My reflection moved on its own and came out of the mirror.
As my reflection came out completely, Reizen’s was about to come out this time from behind .
When I got to that point, I finally understood.
It was a trap.
“Alena! Stop their movement! Reizen, form a barrier! Uchikage, break the mirror! I’ll take out the guy who came out from the mirror!”
“I got it! Heavy weight!”
“Roger that! Pneumatic Barrier – Sturdy!”
“Yes-………. Herculean Legs!!”
“Good! Heaven Split!”
The fastest effect was Alena’s heavy weighting.
As expected, Alena’s skills are not enough, since the original form of the reflection is me.
Yea, This is bad.
In addition, Reizen deployed a single barrier between us with the Pneumatic Barrier – Sturdy to protect us.
As soon as my reflection stopped moving, Uchikage instantly moved to the side of the mirror and swung his claws equipped in his hands.
But all the attacks ended in failure.
Although the fake me was supposed to be blocked from moving by Alena’s skill, it seemed that it could use my skill just by not moving its body.
It managed to block my Heaven Split, which was unleashed by the KazeOrochi by making about 30 reamed water spears appear as if to protect the mirror and itself.
However, most of the 30 spears seemed to have been destroyed, but unfortunately, it did not seem to reach the fake me.
Furthermore, Uchikage, who immediately attacked the mirror, certainly must have hit the mirror with his claws.
The power of the Oni and the new claws must have been extraordinary, but Uchikage’s blow was easily repelled.
“Ouren-sama! This mirror is coated with magic! It is impossible for me!
“! That’s why it only blocked my attack! Or did it prevent me from using Heaven Split with KazeOrochi? ……! I went easy because it was a cave, but ……! Uchikage! Stay back and defend yourself!
The moment I confirm that Uchikage is out of sight, I make Reamed water spears and water spears volley appear and charge towards the mirror.
The fake Reizen that came out also joined the battle and moved to defend the mirror, but it seemed that they could not defend against the 30 spears, and some of the spears destroyed the mirror.
But in the end, even the fake Alena came out, and only Uchikage, who seemed to be the most difficult to get out.
All of the fake versions of us had lifeless expressions on our faces and dead eyes, but the hostility was still there.
“…… this is …… going to be a trouble.”
