Chapter 23: Foreign numerals sound cool for some reason.
Urmm…. You can talk?
Did you talk just now?
“Both of you come and greet your father.”
Oh, you really did.
The other golems also start to move and greet me.
The three altogether.
Neither of them looks like a golem at all.
They look exactly like a human.
Because of their slender body, the three of them looks like a woman.
No, the one on the left is closer to be a male.
Its body is slightly larger than the other two.
Huh? That’s strange.
The instructions never said anything about them talking….
Let me see the instructions for the High Golem again.
The upgraded version of golem embedded with high purity magic stone.
Listen to the order of its master and will act accordingly to it.
However, it doesn’t have any intelligence. It only moves to what its master says.
Un, it shouldn’t have the function to speak at all.
Then, what are they… Hm? This is.
I found something in the golem entry.
The highest subspecies of the golem.
A golem which is made out of high purity magic stone and operator’s cell.
Has high intelligent. In addition to high loyalty to the master by imprint, it can act and think on its own.
A golem usually doesn’t grow. However, since it’s made from the operator’s cell, it can absorb magic and grow by itself.
Its ability will increase as more expensive material is used.
Since it’s made to look like a human, the technique is highly-forbidden.
Based on the explanation, I might’ve created this Golem Homunculus.
Operator’s cell, in other words, a part of my body.
I didn’t do anything like that…
Then, it suddenly came upon me.
Operator’s cell… cell… skin.
I used my molted skin for their skin!
Pretty sure they are not cell though.
However, did it really become like this because of that?
Indeed, it might be. Looking at the results.
In essence, it seems that I’m the highest grade material.
My mind was wholly preoccupied while I was making it.
In a sense, I was in a state of escapism.
But still, a forbidden technique….
Now, now, I guess there’s nothing to worry about.
After all, I’m a dragon!
The forbidden technique by the human standard is safe, I think!
In front of me, three homunculi are waiting for my order.
I was thinking of giving them clothes. Unfortunately, I have none.
That’s because a dragon like me doesn’t need it.
Basically, I’m always naked.
What to do?
Although no people are watching, it’s not a pleasant sight to see.
Well, it’s not like I feel sexually attracted to them.
I made them with passion. Even watching the golem naked didn’t arouse me at all. After all, I’m a dragon.
That’s right. To begin with, I don’t think there’s anyone who gets excited, looking at the statue and picture they made.
‘I wish I could’ve done better~’ I feel like this kind of feeling will come out first. What? Just me?
However, in this dark cave, it looks wrong for man and woman of apparent age to be naked.
What should I do?
Wait a minute. I’m sure there’s still some of my molted skin left.
I can use that. If it turned out okay, I could make clothes for several people.
It’s troublesome to process, but with Elibel’s knowledge, it can be done.
With that decided, let’s strike while the iron is hot.
『Ah, err, ahem! 』
Oddly, I feel nervous when I’m the one who created them.
As I thought, it’s because of their human body.
Ah, this is bad. The bad memories from my working days are resurfacing….
『I- I’m giving your neksht order! 』
I bit my tongue!
But how?! This is telepathic communication!
『………I’m giving your next order! 』
Alright! I finally said it!
The moment I did that, I can clearly feel that the homunculi stiffened.
You don’t need to be so tense, okay?
Instead, I’m the one who is nervous right now.
『There’s still my molted skin left on the middle floor. I want you to make clothes with it. 』
Some of them tilted their head.
They don’t seem to understand.
『Clothes…. What exactly are they? 』
After figuring out the situation,
The first female-type asked.
Oh, so we have to start from there.
Briefly, I used my thought transmission to send the Elipedia to them.
It’s a memory transmission, an upgraded version of thought transmission.
Something that I learned from Elipedia.
Since it worked with Ann before, it should be appropriately transmitted to them.
『…..I see. Understood. So we just have to keep making clothes, yes? 』
『They’re gonna be yours. You’re free to wear clothes. You can’t always stay naked all the time. So I want each of you to make one for yourself. Feel free to use materials from the storage. Don’t ask for my permission, just use it. 』
There are only things that I don’t need.
The storage room is basically a garbage dump.
Fills with molted skin, cutting of long nails, scales and so on.
『…………Thank you for your concern. 』
The female-type has her head drooped, trembling somehow.
Is it cold?
『Now, go….. Ah, wait. 』
『What’s the matter? 』
『It would inconvenient for me to address you in the future. 』
Second, it would be difficult for me to call if anything happens. It’s not practical to use ‘‘ey!’ or ‘you lot,’ et cetera.
…..But what should I name them?
After all, I don’t have any naming sense.
Like before, ant → Ann.
Wait, that’s right…… I can use numbers.
But using one, two, three is lame
Oh, the numbers in German and Spain sounds cool, don’t they?
So, in order of birth, Una, Dos, Tres.
It’s already like a name.
Why are foreign countries numbers all cool-sounding?
It’s a marvel to me.
Yup, let’s go with that!
After I named them, they moved to the middle floor.
When I was doing that, everyone put their head down and were trembling. As I expected, is it sound too good?
Some even cried.
That reminds me, Ann, did she likes the name I gave her?
Well, it’s not like I really care.
I wish this ruins had something like the perspective and common sense of this world.
Yawn “Haa~,” but giving names got me tired again.
Did I work too much?
I should make a different one after I wake up.
The next one will be the animal-type Golem Homunculus.
As for the operator’s cell, nails and scales should be fine.
This is a good chance to make a lot of it.
For now, I ate lots of magic stones and went to bed.
