『The intruder has been repelled.』
It looks like they are going back home.
I don’t need an angry visitor to come here after this.
A few days later, Aisha and Cain come to visit us.
“So, what do you come here for?”
“Don’t you know?”
“I’m pretty sure I have no idea so let’s hear about it.”
“It’s about Alto.”
“Who is he? Your acquaintance?”
“He is an adventurer who lost his life in this dungeon!”
He died here?
“…Oh, is he the shameless adventurer?”
“Saying shameless like that, you’re the reason why he is dead isn’t it!”
Did she misunderstand something?
“Don’t get me wrong here. No matter how bad or shameless they are, as long as they don’t get on my nerve, I can forgive them.”
“Then, did you get mad?”
“Absolutely. They tried to steal the giant corpse which my golem works hard for. It makes me angry just thinking about it.”
“Just before, did you know they were fighting that thing?”
“They were indeed fighting the giant. But that is before the giant overwhelmed them and later they came running to this place. They already lost their will to fight anymore and running away from the battle. If they join the fight helping my golem in the first place, I might consider giving them some of the loots.”
“Did you know they were still fighting?”
“Is there any battle marks on the giant? When I went there, there’s only from the golem’s punch. Were there any marks other than that?”
“Maybe you didn’t notice it?”
“The giant has been dead already, hasn’t it?”
“Did you look at the giant corpse properly?”
“I want to see how many of them had taken care of the big game. Please show me.”
With Aisha still arguing, Eins’ voice is heard from behind the door.
“Master, Irene and her companion want to see you.”
Aisha raises a surprise voice.
I guess she is an acquaintance of hers.
“Please excuse us.”
To be seen is a woman in her twenty and an escort of hers, which comprise of three adventurers.
“What do you want?”
“I’ve come here to apologize.”
Aisha was surprise when Irene suddenly lowered her head.
“Shiria’s party members, Mute, Lettie and Amu have a confession to make.”
“Who are those guys?”
Four new names came out?
“They are former party members of Alto. After Alto’s death, Shiria now becomes their party leader.”
“So, what is the confession?”
“The report, which been submitted by these three, on Alto’s death is not true.”
In other words, they are making a false report.
“It seems they are forced to lie under Shiria’s order. After Shiria left, I was told everything by them. That’s why I came here to immediately apologize.”
“I don’t need an apology. If you have time to apologize then do it properly.”
Irene gives a bow and turn to Aisha.
“Let’s go home, senpai.”
“Well… I’m sorry for accusing you for the crime you have not done. I’m sorry.”
Aisha politely lower her head and apologize.
“Don’t worry. You’re not responsible for this.”
“Well then, I’ll excuse myself.”
“Excuse me then.”
They bowed and left with their escort.
Such annoying people.
『An intruder appeared in the dungeon.』
A few days after the incident, a system message flows.
Let’s see what this is all about.
It must be either beast or an adventurer.
Just as I thought but there’s only one person.
Looking through my window, I can see an unarmed young woman come running.
There were burn marks on her clothes and a wound on her shoulder.
“Eins, go and listen to what she has to say.”
Eins bowed and immediately disappear.
『Nice to meet you. I am Eins, a monster serve under the Lord of this dungeon, Null. I’ve come here to ask what happened.』
『Nu, Lord Null! Please! Please save the village!』
As she was confused, she cried clinging to Eins.
『Calm down please. Please tell me more about what happened. 』
Little by little, Eins told me the current situation faced by the woman.
It seems the village in the west has been attacked by the bandits.
They lost all their warriors during the fight.
The women, children and elder manage to escape from that place but it is a matter of time before they discover them.
So, the fastest woman headed for the kingdom to ask for help but she was found out by the bandit.
『Please. Please. Please. Please. 』
I’ve been keeping my head down ever since she talked.
It’s painful to hear for such thing to happen to her.
