Otome Game no Heroine de Saikyou Survival [WN] - Chapter 110.1
Conclusion and New Request (1)
The “conquest” to obtain the [Gift] from the dungeon spirit had come to an end.
Everyone returned safely except Carla, who abandoned her fiancée and fled through the exit that appeared after defeating the dungeon boss.
Carla was no longer outside, and the whereabouts of the Divine Protection were still unknown.
At that time, the spirit said that it had invited three other people besides me. One of them has been identified as Carla, who has already obtained Divine Protection, but have the other two obtained Divine Protection? We don’t even know who those were to begin with right now.
“Aria, did you get Divine Protection?”
As soon as we left the dungeon, Feld approached us with heavy footsteps and a slightly frightened look on his face. He seemed to have dared to let it slide during the battle, but from the look on his face, I guess Feld knew the danger of [Gift] too.
“No, I didn’t get Divine Protection.”
“Really…? What is that power, then? It looked like the upper limit of your status jumped up…”
“That’s the [Combat Skill] that I got from the spirit.”
“Combat Skill…? That? You sure it’s not Divine Protection? I’m sure it saved our lives, but it still takes a toll on the body, doesn’t it?”
“There is a time limit, yes, but…”
Sure, there would be some strain, but using a normal Combat Skill successfully would cause the same amount of strain.
Feld was worried. He truly felt like a father as his big hand gripped my shoulder… Mira and Viro approached us, perhaps having overheard our conversation.
“I think it’s good that she’s getting stronger…Aria-chan, you have grown so big now, you won’t use it recklessly, right?”
“Was that a combat skill? I was going to ask if it was Divine Protection too. So can I use it too?”
Mira sounded like a relative’s aunt, even though she looked young. With his doubts dispelled, Viro was already shifting his thoughts and wondering if that would be an added advantage in a fight.
“Guys, I know you’re curious, but we’ll talk later. Other adventurers are watching us here. Let’s hurry up and clear out.”
At Dalton’s words, everyone took notice of their surroundings and began preparing to withdraw.
Apparently, this was the entrance to the dungeon located in the forest. I estimated it to be around midnight based on the setting sun and the humidity in the air, but even at that hour, there appeared to be some adventurers entering and exiting the dungeon.
The Crowned Prince and Clara had already left. Elena’s anxious eyes met mine, and among those still remaining, Amol, the King’s brother, interrupted us by glaring at me, after which they left.
“Then we’re heading back, too.”
We [Rainbow Sword] also left the dungeon after a brief pause with Elena and the others. After about ten minutes of walking, we arrived at the Duke of Fudale’s guest house, from where we first entered the dungeon.
We lost all sense of time after the long dungeon crawl, and we were so exhausted after arriving in the middle of the night that we slept like mud in the assigned room away from the house.
The next morning, near noon, I was awakened by the approaching housemaid, who informed me that Dalton and Viro had been summoned in the morning for a final meeting.
I was told that I had been summoned as well, but Dalton had declined because I was exhausted from the intense fighting we had been involved in.
Maybe…like Feld, he thought that my [Iron Rose] was a [Divine Protection]. Perhaps because of this misunderstanding, Dalton wanted to save me from being forcibly surrounded by members of the Royal Family.
I think Elena would respect my will to some extent, but I wouldn’t know how Amol, the king’s brother, or Ervan, the crown prince, would act.
“So, Aria, did you meet the spirit? What kind of spirit was it?”
When Feld and Mira woke up around lunchtime, Mira asked me this question as she ate her meal, as if this was something she was curious about as a spirit user.
“It said it’s not a normal spirit, it said. It has human consciousness mixed with it.”
When I responded, thinking, “I didn’t know elves ate so much meat…”, Mira provided me with the information I didn’t know.
“Human will…. I was wondering why Aria-chan was called…”
“In my case, I think it was the color of my hair that caught its attention.”
Feld, who was listening to our conversation beside me, looked at my hair, which was no longer hidden by ashes, and quietly muttered for some reason.
Meanwhile, Dalton and Viro returned. Not only that, but Sera, who was back in her maid uniform, was with us, and she told us the outcome of the conversation with Dalton and the others.
This time, the reward for [Rainbow Sword] was two hundred large gold coins. In addition, the party will receive some items and materials found in the dungeon.
Twenty percent will be given to Dalton for upkeep of the party, and the rest will be distributed equally. However, since I was new, I was told that my share would be slightly lower. Even so, my share was 20 large gold coins…enough money to live for 10 years if I were to live a modest life alone in the countryside.
The items and materials would be stored in Dalton’s mansion, and if necessary, would be converted into cash or used as materials for equipment.
This time, however, the royal family was going to give us more materials as a special prize. As soon as she finished, Sera held out a leather package to me.
“Yes, Aria, this material is as precious as dragon fangs and was supposed to be in the royal family’s possession, but at the advice of Her Highness the Princess, this one will be given to the Rainbow Sword. However, Master Dalton said that it was your power that changed the situation in the end.”
I opened the leather package and inside was a pitch-black horn about 20 centimeters long. This is…
“It’s the horn of the Murder Minotaur we broke. The other materials were burned by that “lady”, but this one remained intact. It’s too small to be used as a weapon for me or Feld, but I’m sure Galbas and his brothers would be happy to use it to strengthen your equipment.”
I gripped the horn tightly in both hands as Dalton, Viro, and the others nodded with smiles.
